The political discussion of the flay
is as to who will bo most affected by
the Independents. No one seems to
take seriously the chances of electing
"Foxes-have-holes" Long, and the
chances of Admiral Beckley to handle
the county money Is regarded as about
oven with that of Iaukea to get an
other term.
To complicate the situation, there is
the fact that the Home Rulers have
a convention tonight, and Achi stands
on street corners with a Labor party
in his pocket, threatening, or promis
ing, endorsements, according to the
way It Is looked at. The Homo Rul
ers, It Is stated, will put up a com
plete senatorial ticket, but they will
pass up a lot of olllces for which they
think they have no chance. That o
county clerk is one, and Kalauokalanl
will be endorsed. Cathcart will bo en
dorsed for county attorney and Wise
for sheriff. For treasurer, it Is re
ported that the admiral and Achi aro
in cahoots and mayhap the little poc
ket party in the 'Fifth will como to
Beckley's rescue.
Beckley Is sincerely sorry for Von
Holt and Trent, who are about to
spend their energies in a useless cam
paign against him, but duty's call to
office must be obeyed and so the ad
miral will agree to look after the
county money when Trent's turn Is
up.
Long's vote, It is thought, will come
from the Cathcart side more than the
Edlngs side, and may elect the 'latter.
Long expects the Civic Federation
vote, and it is mostly Republican. His
candidacy Is therefore cheering to the
Edlngs men, but political feeling it has
aroused Is solidifying the Republican
ranks and the contest between Edlngs
and Cathcart promises to be an Inter
esting one.
Iaukea's vote also Is regarded as
likely to come from the Republican
side mostly. Iaukea, it is thought,
will run far behind the Independent
vote of William Henry, when he mado
a vigorous Independent canvass and
got about 800 votes. If he gets the
Civic Fed vote, he will naturally Hurt
"Wise, and as Jarrett is specially strong
among his party following, "Wise's
supporters feel the need of hustling.
In this connection there Is some

chance that Iaukea may not get a Civic
Fed endorsement. It Is certain that
Wise has supporters In the federation,
and it is eually certain that Iaukea
has lost most ot his support, during
the last six months.,.
George Kaea, the gambler who got
on the Republican legislature ticket
in the wee small hours when the con'
ventlon was nearly asleep and a lot
of members had gone home, Insists
on running. " He Hied his nomination
papers this morning. However, his
action is regarded as a bluff, and Kaea
will be done away with, say the party
leaders.
The fact that the Home Rulers are
going to put a complete senatorial tic
ket in the field, Is another complica
tion that Is viewed In various ways,

An executive session of the Repub

afternoon, at the conclusion of which
Chairman A. F. Judd dictated the fol
lowing report of proceedings:
"The question or the ratification
meeting has been put up to the chair
man and secretary of this committee,
to confer with the chairman and sec
retary of the Central Committee. We
will try to have that conference meet
ing this afternoon later.
"This may bo called the first pre
liminary meeting of the County Com
mittee.. We made a tentative list of
speauers for the various meetings.
Our attempt has bcer to get the" most
effective speakers.
"A list of names of proposed speak
ers cannot bo given out because their
consent has not yet been asked.
"E. H. Paris has resigned from the
County Committee on. account of the
pressure of business, and I have ap
pointed A. R. Phillips in his place.
"The committee discussed a whole
lot of things without arriving at any
decisions. That would naturally
be the case at the first meeting of the
committee. Many things have to be
tentative just now owing to the iln
ancial conditions.
"This committee agrees with me
that the committee should not Incur
any bills without seeing where the
money Is to come from, as this Is to
bo a business campaign."

At a meeting of the Board o Health
held this afternoon a cnango was made
by which Dr. Hayes, of Molokal, will
take the position ot Government phy
sician for tho district of Honolulu,
handling the dispensary work as wTl
as making outside calls on tho poor
when needed and looking after tho
Government homes. He will take the
work which has, up to this time, been
handled by Drs. Sinclair and Baldwin,
at a salary of $150 per month, mak
ing a considerable saving to the Board
of Health.
The change was made us the result
of a committee report after an Inves
tigation of the dispensary affairs which
were criticized rather severely at a
recent meeting of the Board. Changes
In methods of handling the dispensary
will also be made.
PERSECUTED BY CURIOUS NEIGH
BORS BY QUESTIONS ABOUT AL
LEGED GHOSTS.
Honolulu's still talking ghost ana
when one man meets another on a
street corner and asks "What's the
latest?" the other fellow wants to
know If he meai.s the latest indepen
dent candidate or the latest ghost.
And when women meet, why, Its "do
you really think the little Spanish
girl, Esperanza, is a medium?"
In the opinion of sober minded peo
ple as distinguished from merely se
rious minded people, the case of Es
peranza, is perhaps one of the most
fit subjects ever arising In this com
munity for tho careful consideration
ot the Society for the Prevention ot
Cruelty to Children, or the Humane
Society, for the almost-woman Is in a
pitiful state of mind as tho result of
the way she has been In the last few
days teased and tortured Into talking
about what she either knows nothing
of nor could easily explain If she want
ed to.
It was lato last night before she
retired and then she had for hours
been in tears as the result of ques
tions and cross-questions.
In tho light of a day's perspective
tho doings of Sunday at tho Pccarlck
mansion on Punchbowl begin to ap
pear more and more "llshy" and there
appears to bo more and more Improb
ability of any ''true psychic pheno
mena." If Mr. and Mrs. Pecarlck were -as
scared as they say they wero over tho
alleged doings of Sunday and they be
lieve, as they say they do, that th
dancing furniture and Hying brlc-a-brac
was duo to ho pretty Spanish ser
vant, why should they stay in the
house last night with Esperanza un
der tho same roof?
Last evening, after the pollco had
chased away the curious hundreds,
many of whom wero willing to pay to
get In, tho Pecaricks and Esperanza
and a barber and a "very few neigh
bors sat around in tho dining room,
with a Iltlo wine, and yawned. Had
it not been for the few neighbors, still
believing and hanging around to see
tho ghost walk, the family would have
retired early.
It was not so long ago that a houso
on Emma street was said to bo haunt
ed. Some superstitious neighbors saw
a boy or two emerge through a win
dow, glass and all going, and terrific
noises followed. They at onco start
ed tho cry or ghost and tho Inmates
of tho house, when asked afterward,
"admitted" that ghosts had been mak
ing a manifestation. Later the facts
proved otherwise.

ELEVEN NATIVES) OF PHILIPP1IN E ISLANDS WAIT ON SECRETARY
MOTT-SMITH AND PRESENT A PATHETIC APPEAL, TO GOVERN
OR FREAR TO FIND WORK FOR THEM THINGS NOT WHAT
w THEY WERE LED TO BELIEVE.
From what took place In Secretary
Mott-Smlth's ofllce this morning It is
evident that some Filipinos in this
country are a feallure. and also thac
men brought over under the auspices
of the Territorial Immigration Com
mission have been having a pretty
hard time.
Eleven young Filipinos, none ap
pearing to be more than 22 years of
age, presented their complaint, In a
petition to Governor Frear. They told
oj their, troubles and said that
they had been discriminated against
In regard to pay,, working alongside
of men who were given higher wages
than they and of how much they
were disappointed in Hawaii, the gold
en Mecca to which they had been
brought under the auspices of the
Territory.
In the first place they compkilnea
that they had been told that
they would get $30 per month,
The Information, correct or other
wise, Is contained In a despatch to a
San Francisco paper dated Puget Sound
Navy Yard, Washington, September
1C, to tho effect that the United States
cruiser Colorado is coming to Hono
lulu to meet the cruiser fleet to par
tllcpato In target practice at Manila
Bay.
H this be so it would Indicate that
tho Pacific fleet, which, according to
originally scheduled should have aslled
yesterday from Samoa for Honolulu, Is
coming here again only to go hence to
Manila, or that tho Pacific fleet Is now
en route to Manila and that the Colora
do will Hollow the fleet from here. She
Is due hero early next month.

Navy Yard despatch was mistaken In

LEPERS' MOVING PICTURE SCHEME CAN BE PUT THROUGH AT OSC1U
IF THE MONEY SUBSCRIBED IS AVAILABLE THOSE WHO HAVE
PROMISED SUBSCRIPTIONS ASKED TO SEND THEM IN AT WciS.
Tho lper Settlement moving pic
ture fund is wanted and all who havo
offered contributions aro asked to send
iri'the coin 'at once.
The Leper Settlement at Molokal
should havo a flno moving picture ma
chine with tho funds which havo been
collected and tho matter will bo tak
en up at onco if tho money can bo
obtained. It will bo handled through
a committee of three, who will be
asked to serve bySuperintendent Jack
McVeigh. At tho present tlmo there
is 1290.75 available and In tho hands
of tho .secretary of tho Board or
Health. This sum comes from three
sources: J109 from tho concert given
by Madamo Arral, under tho patrou
ago of Mrs. Dr. Humphrls, Mrs. Dr.
Cooper and others, $142.75, which was
collected in tho Settlement itself, and
f 45 which was sent In to the office or
tho Hawaiian Star and turned over
tho day after collected, now some
weeks ago. The money collectod by
gold, here. Then they told of reaching
here and finding that the rate of pay
which they got at the Olaa planta
tion to which -they went was ?IG per
month. On this they were hardly able
to get along and the reality was even
more bitterly Impressed on them by
the fact that they found that the
Japanese and Portuguese In the fields
were getting more pay than they were.
The cut from ?30 per month to $1G was
bad enough but the Inequality of the
pay was too much. Ono by one they
left the plantation and have como to
this city for employment and have
failed to find any.
A mistake which is noticeable i"s the
fact that every one of these cloven
Is unfitted for agricultural work. They
are of the second batch which was

using Manila Bay and It may havo
been meant for Magdalena Bay, the
mistake possibly being a typographical
error.
The fact remains that Honolulu has
since the Pacific fleet left hero received
no news of Its whereabouts or intend
ed movements.
Following Is tho despatch:
PUGET SOUND NAVY YARD,
(Wash.), September 1C. Tho cruiser
Colorado, which has been In dry dock
the past thirty days undergoing repairs
made necessary by grounding on LIp

pate In target practice at Manila Bay.

Board of Health.
Tho notlccablo fcaturo of tho funds
collected is that tho sum of $142.75
was collected In tho Settlement Itself.
When It Is realized how little chanco
there Is for these people to earn any
money and of their need of many lit
tle things which wo tho people on tho
outsldo woud nover dream of going
withou it will bo seen that this sum is
really a very largo one, and that it
shows that whllo help Is being given
them from tho outsldo they aro not
