Following is the reply of L-. L. Mc-i
Candless to the letter of C. J. McCar
thy, in which the latter announced his
candidacy for the Democratic nomi
nation for delegate, published in the
Star of Saturday:
Honolulu, T. II., March 11, 1912.
Hon. O. J. McCarthy, Honolulu, T. H.:
Dear Sir In reply to your commun
ication of the 9th lnst., addressed to
me and also published in the Hawaii,
an Star, in which you state as fol
lows: "In view of your action at the
meeting of the Democratic Territorial
Central Committee held last night, 1
hereby withdraw any support which i
have promised you," permit me to
state that the support you promised
mo was voluntary on your part, and
not asked for by me; however, l
thanked you for the same, believing it,
at that time, to bo tho word of a man.
Your li'ttle combine in its effort to
make me, under pressure of your
promised support, rescind the action
of tho Territorial Central Committee,
failed, as you know, which fact en
ables you to come out in your true
colors. In your request you evidently
assumed that I am the Territorial Cen
tral Committee, when, in fact, I am
but one of thirty members therefore
control one vote.
This action of tho Territorial Cen
tral Committee was taken on Febru
ary 9 and, according to a motion
made by me at that meeting, action
was deferred for two weeks and the
secretary was Instructed to communi
cate with the absent members of the
Territorial Committee, many othe:
Democrats and yourself, asking for an
expression of opinion as to the advis
ability of our having a dual conven
tion. This proposition was published
at the time, in the English, Hawnliar
and Portuguese papers and copies of
the resolution were mailed to more
than one hundred representative Dem
ocrats throughout the Territory. All
replies, including your own, were
uanimous in approval of the dual cou

Phenomenon Never
Happened Before
Molokai, for the first time in
tho memory of man, is decor- O
atcd with snow. This astonish- O
Ing fact is a mute tribute to O
the Intensity of the cold wave O
that for somo -weeks has been O
felt in these islands. Within O
the past few days patchofl of O
snow have appeared, visible O
from tho seacoast, in the moun- O
tain tops back of Pukoo on the O
south side of tho island, where O
the coastline bends toward tho O
ejvn end.
In its report of the arrival of the
Matson steamer Lurlino from Hono
lulu, the San Francisco Examiner
"Among tho passengers were Cap
tain A. Tullett of the Inter-Island
Steamship" Company, here to spend a
short vacation, and J. A. Balch of the
Mutual Telephone Company of Hono
lulu. Balch has come here to install
the old Paulsen -wireless system as
the San Francisco sending and receiv
ing station for his company. The lo
cal concern has been purchased by
the Mutual Company, which owns and
operates all of the telephone and
wireless telegraph business of Hawaii.
The company is said to be one of the
few , successful wireless concerns in
tho world and is now paying a divi
dend of eighteen per cent annually. If
successful, it is hoped to .send and re
ceive commercial messages between
here and Hawaii."
Mrs. Emma M. Nakuina, who owns
land in the region of Molokai above-
mentioned, gives the Star tho extra
ordinary intelligence thr.t snow has
fallen nnd rested long enough to hae"
its appearance notod upon that island.
"H. D. Bowen reports that snow has
fallen on tho mountain rango lack ot
Pukoo, in, large enough quantities to
show distinct patches In sovcnl places
on tllo ridges and in the ravines." said
Mrs. Nakuina this morning.
'The snow is quite perceptible from
Pukoo harbor and tho beach along
there, Mr. Bowen states. He latolv
bought a piece of land adjolninj mine
in that "section, and has been over
there looking after his properly.
"This is the first time in tho mem
ory of man I believe," Mrs. Nakuina
added, "that snow fits fallen on Molo
kai." And. it is to be remembered, Mrs.
Nakuina is one of tho recognized au
thorities on Hawaiian history.
Horeloforo anyone talking about
"snowy Blopes," without making it
clear that only the big three moun
tains of the Inland ot Hawaii and the
vast domo of Haleakala on the Island
of Maul wore being mentioned, would
have been denounced as a traducor of
tho country. Such a thing did happen,
eight or ten years ago, to the author
of a bit of promotion literature.
Now, however, Molokai is to bo in
cluded as a snow-supporting island of
the gro.up. Tho ovidenco of that is
land's advent to Arctic-crowned hon
ors, as here given, Is authentic and
ranks in point of interest not far be
hind the discovery of the South Pole.
Whether tho event may bo taken as
supporting the theory that the earth
is going to enter another glacial, pe

from- Kauai, wfcero ho spent a week
in photographing tho beauties of the

Mr. Pillsbury is most enthusiastic
over his trip. He declares that the
scenery of the Walmoa canyon Is

made the' more significant when it is

is Mr. Pillsbury's specialty, and that
ho has spent years in this work In

small pictures, Mr. Pillsbury took
