WITH A DEAL
CHARLIE NOTLEY MADE A DUAL WITH THE HAWAII COUNTY
DEMOCRATS TO GET THEM TO PULL HIS POLITICAL CHEST
NUTS OUT OF THE FIRE PALMER WOODS PRESUMABLY A
BENEFICIARY OF THE DEAL.
E. p. McClanahan's candidacy for
tho delegateshlp Is creating a' curious
situation In Democratic politics, espe
cially on tho Island of Hawaii. Char
llo Notley, who Is tho president of the
Homo Rule party and also Its candi
date for congress, made what Is con
sidered a very shrewd bargain with
the Democrats of Hawaii that Is
shrewd from his point of view.
Though declaiming everywhere
against fusion between his party and
the Democrats, h0 had done a little
fusing on his own hook and for his
own advantage. Ho made an agree-,
ment with the Democrats of Hawaii
that tho Democrats should not put up
a candidate for Delegate to Congress,
and In return that the Hawaii Demo
cratic County ticket shoud have some
aid from tho Homo Rule party. The
result of this of course, tie calculated
would be to give him a largo number
of votes for delegate, that would oth
erwise go to the Democratic nominee.
Of course the Hawaii Democrats had
no authority to enter Into any such
agreement as that, but they did. When
tho Hawaii County delegation to the
Territorial convention reached Hono
lulu last Saturday, tliy announced
their intention of opposing the nomin
ation of any candidate for delegate.
This fact was published In the Star
that day. It was thought at that time

THE JAP WARSHIP

The visiting Japanese trauirg ship

that there would be quite a fight In the
convention on this question. But the
Oahu delegates were so unanimous and
enthusiastic for nominating a delegate,
If a candldato could be found, that the
Hawaii delegation never raised the Is
sue, and McClanahan's nomination was
made without objection to a nomina
tion being voiced In the convention.
Nevertheless, tho Hawaii Democrats
had made their bargain with Notley,
and Palmer Woods' pessimistic pro
phecy regarding McClanahan's candl-
dacy probably grows out of tho exist
ence .of that compact with Notley.
Woods Is himself a nominee for the
Senate on Hawaii, and so, presumably,
a beneficiary of that compact. But the
fact that ho Is National Committee
man for the Territory causes a good
deal of surprise at his utterance.
Tho Democrats outside of Hawaii are
more determined to make a straight
forward party fight than ever. The
feeling has ben growing stronger than
ever that fusion or attempted fusion
with tho Home Rulo party Is a source
of, weakness. That the party owes It

PASTOR OF METHODIST CHURCH

Rev. Wadman In tho ntar future. One
to assist him In the English work nnd
tho other to carry on tho work with

FIREMAN FELL DOWN AN AL
READY DEADLY HATCH THIS
Two accidents, one of which Is likely
to prove fatal, occurred aboard, tho
transport Sheridan last night. There
Is a peculiar coincidence connected
with the probable fatal case for the ,
accident occurred In hatch number 2
where Sailor McDonald met death by
drowning some weeks ago.
James Hughes Is tho name of tho
man who was probably fatally Injured
last night or rather early this morn
ing. Ho was a flrewah on the night
shift and had charge of one of the
donkey engines-on the forward deck of
tho Sheridan. In some unknown man
ner ho fell down the hatch a distance
of nbout 50 feet. The water had been
pumped out of this hatch. He sustain
ed a fracture of six ribs on the right
side, a rupture of tho pleura and
lungs which' was followed by a general
emphysema or passage of air through
the tissues. The accident occurred af
ter 4 o'clock this morning. Dr. J. C.
Gregory, the transport surgeon, oper
ated on the injured man.
Tho other accident occurred last
night about 8 o'clock. John Hiram, a
native stevedore, was tno victim. He
fell down hatch no 0. going a distance
of about 25 feet. Ho sustained a con
cussion of tho brain, but Dr. Gregory
who operated on him, does not thin."
the injuries will prove fatal.
Both Injured men, In charge of Dr.
Gregory, were brought to tho city this
morning on the steamer Iwalanl short
ly before noon. The native was sent
to the military hospital and Hughes to
tho Queen's Hospital. Hughes Is 32
years of age und a native ot Ireland.
Ho has been connected with the trans
port for one trip, and has been a citi
zen for about 17 years. ,
