HACKFIELD&CO., Limited SOLE AGENTS The Republican District Conven tion was held last Monday after noon and the following excellent senatorial and representative tickets placed in the field: Kor the Sen ate S. L. Desha and J. D. Paris. For the House J. D. Lewis of Hilo, James Kauwila of Puna, Geo. W. Paty of Olaa and J. Pritchard of Honokaa. The proceedings in the caucus and the convention showed a dis position on the part of all to work together. The native element in the Republican party was repre sented by Judge Kaumau of Puna and James Lewis of this city. In the questions that came up in the caucus they gave good advice. The caucus lasted for two hours, which were spent in canvassing the situation thoroughly to find out the strongest position for the party to take. Among the names informally presented to the caucus for repre sentative was that of V. N. Purely of Hamakua. Mr. Purdy had hut recently been nominated for the same office by the Home Rulers. He was therefore not a satisfactory Republican in the judgement of tlje delegates. The convention was made up of delegates who were for straight out Republican principles and sound party politics. All the speeches in caucus had the same ring. There was a unanimous preference for defeat on strnight party lines rather than for victory at the expense of endorsing the op posing principles of an antagonistic party. When the convention was called to order by Chairman Peck at i o'clock p. m., it was at once de cided to go into caucus. Judge Barnard was chosen chairman of the caucus and J. C. Ridgway sec retary. The delegates present were William Kaumau, P. Peck, Geo. Williams, J. D. Lewis, J. Vierra, J. F. Clay, F. J. Williams, H. Wicks, W. C. Cook, E. W. Democrats of Honolulu, who after abusing Wilcox, turned around and endorsed him. If Purdy is a Home Ruler, an endorsement of him would be the endorsement of Wilcox. That we of Hilo and this island want nothing to do with Wilcox is proved by a little ex perience of my own, which I will relate. Last winter the citizens of Hilo held a mass meeting, and pre pared a memorial to Congress ask- . . . I 1 ing tor certain appropriations uy Congress. I was one of the com mittee to forward this memorial. I Sent copies to Congressman Mer cer, chairman of the Committee on Public Buildings, to Congressman Stark of Nebraska and to various other Concressmen and Senators, including Delegate Wilcox. I re ceived letters regarding the matter from Mercer, Stark and many others, but not a line of inquiry or acknowledgement from the Ha waiian delegate. He seems to care nothing for Hilo or the interests of Hilo people. The Republican party is a party of progress here as well as on the Mainland ana we cannot afford to endorse a Wilcox man." On motion it was unanimously decided not to report favorably on the name of Mr. Purdy. Hallot was then taken which showed the choice of the caucus to be Desha and Paris for Senators; Lewis, Kauwila, Pritchard and Paty for Representatives. The caucus adjourned and the Convention was called to order by Chairman Peck. The nominations were then made and the work was over. The chairman read a number of bills that had been presented and reported that there was no money in the Treasury. An assessment of $2.50 upon all delegates present was agreed to and the bills were liquidated in short order. n comfortable Place to Cm jy. w The rooms in the upper story of the Peacock Building have been fitted up for guests both permanent and transient.

In the discussion of the eligibility of Mr. Purdy to run on a Republi can ticket Delegate Holmes said that he had great respect for Mr. Purdy as a man and as a neighbor, but that he was afraid he was a little- off color politically. He had heard it said that Purdy had no use for the Republican party. Judge Malua of Puna, who is a brother-in-law to Mr. Purdy, spoke on the subject in a reasonable light. He said, it was the belief of the Hawaiian Republicans that with Kauwila from Puna and Purdy from Hamakua on the ticket the Republicans could sweep this side of the island. He believed, how ever, in straight out Republicanism. Some of his countrymen were dis posed to be first on one side then on the other. With himself, lie said, "I am a Republican till I die." I am sorry to see the natives chasing rainbows. If Purdy is a Republican, he will greatly strengthen our ticket. If he is not, it would be poor policy to put him on. W. C. Cook of Papaikou spoke of the embarassing position Mr. Purdy might be in. He may have been nominated by the Home Rul ers without consultation and may after all be a genuine Republican. Mr. Cook suggested that the cau cus take a recess and that an effort be made to communicate with Mr. Purdy by telephone. This was done but Purdy could not be found. J. F. Clay, delegate from Olaa, spoke for pure and unadulterated Republicanism. He said that the Olaa Republicans would vote the straight ticket no matter what the action oi the convention might he, but that he could not consent to a fusion with the Home Rulers in any degree. P. Peck said, "The question is, what will Mr. Purdy be when he gets to the Legislature, a Home Ruler or a Republican. If he is not a Republican now, we cannot afford to endorse him. We cannot afford to follow the example of the HAS LOCAL HHANCII. Department of I'lioenlx Savings llutldlng and Loan Co. The Hawaiian Department of the Phoenix Savings, Uuilding and Hia?lfc-A3?Pcl8telt-nlXJll&r-iffi has just opened offices in the Judd building in the commodious rooms formerly occupied by Gear, Lansing & Co., next to the Bank of Hawaii. Mr. Clarence Grange, the manag ing director, who lately arrived from San Francisco, has been grgaty pleased with the success made by the association and it is now established here on a firm basis and has taken its place among the other large institutions of the Territory. The great success that the com pany has met with in the Islands has led to the establishment of the Hawaiian department, which, un der the supervision of General Agent Robert Slaughter, with R. Campbell as cashier and handling the loans, is now ready to do busi ness independently of the reference to the home office. In speaking of the success of the association here Mr. Grange said: "The corporation will place about five hundred thousand dollars here. Loans will be made on monthly in stallment contracts hearing interest only on unpaid balances. The ne cessity of the establishment of the Hawaiian branch was occasioned by the liberal subscription to the stock of the corporation by resi dents of the Territory who have signed for a m llion and a half dollars' worth in a little over five mouths. "Formerly the corporation con fined its loaning operations to the Coast States, but finding the field here such a good one have ex tended their limits by the establish ment of the local branch to save delay in the transactions of the loans. The money for the busi ness of the local branch is 011 de posit here and will be put out with out the delay of reference to the home office by the management."
