The national colors were the prominent features used by the Decoration Committee, tinder the supervision of II. Ken- dall.

Richards. There were sixty-eight delegites responded to roll call, the othei delegates being represented b,1 proxv. Some ani'isement w.iS caused by the response of W. H. Rice, Jr., to the names of ten Kauai delegates, whose proxies he held Col. Sam Johnson of the Fourth District held twelve proxies from Honolulu which he distributed upon his arri, so that he would not hold the alance of power in convention. A. G. M. Robertson nominated Rev. S. L. Desha as temporary chairman, which was seconded by a score of delegates. On being es- corted to the platform, Chairman Desha said "Gentlemen of the Convention Peimit me to express my thanks for the honor conferred upon me. II this were a convention of minsters I would have no difficulty in pre siding, but I confess my lgn irance ot parliamentary proceuure 111 a political gathering like this. If in presiding as Chairman I forg-n my- self and conduct the convention us though it were a body of clergy men I hone you will pardon me ! It is necessary that the action ol this body be harmonious.

J Delegate Holstciu called attention to the omission of the olhce of In- terpretcr from the report, whi' It was promptly added to the list of officers. With this amendment the repor was unanimously adopted. j. I. Silva of Kauai immediately nominated H. I,. Holstein as Per manent Chairman of the convention and before Silva had gotten off his feet the nomination was seconded by a dozen delegates from every part of the convention. Without delay Mr. Holstein took the chair, and after thanking the convention for the honor conferred upon him, spoke in part as follows: "I do not intend tomakeastieerh, for I believe we want to expedite matters and get through with our work' today. My attention nasbeen called to the fact that there is a dis languished gentleman sitting in the body of the hall who is not a dsle gate and who is entitled to an hon ored seat upon the platform. Of course this is an oversight. I refer to Admiral George C. Heckley, who ! is present 111 the convention, nnd who has done much for the Repub lican party. " lie appointed Col. Samuel Parker 'and Governor John T. Baker to es- cort the Admiral to the platform, and amid resounding applause the doughty Admiral marched between his ponderous escorts to the ros trum.

Rice, Jr. 1 Rawlins wanted to continue with i the convention, but as the hour of 1 12 (clock had arrived, and a miin- ber of the delegates had lunch en- ' gagements, upon motion of A. G. 1 M. Robertson the convention took ' a recess until 2 o'clock. At 2 o'clock the convention re convened and Chaairman Robertson of tli" Committee on Platform tend jthe result of their labors The ' speaker was interrupted in the read : ing of the report by repeated out bursts of applause. The compli mentary allusions to President Roosevelt, Governor Carter and Delegulc Kuhio were cspiciully well received. The convention and an- showed their approval by re- pentetl applause ol the vif'otis planks in the platlorm en county .government, land matters, ci .en laboi and an improved pnblicschool ..system. J Hefore the adoption of the plat- form, as reported by the committee, T. McCains Stewart was accorded the privilege of speaking on the motion. His speech was u carefull) prepaicd argument touching upon the issues of the campaign. He set forth the claims of the party and Prince Cupid for re-election, and outlined the forward march of the ntio; under Republican adminis- nations from Washington to Roose- velt. "' 'IV speaker referred to some of the h'storic characters of Hawaii n"d shoVed that the absorption of Hawaii into the Union was not without its blessings. He urged that united support 'be given to our Delegate in Congress, whom he said had worked zealously and faithfully for H iwaii's interests. Governor Carter, whose aim was to form a government of the people by the people and for the people, was also entitlei' to the support of every citi zen. He complimented the Gover nor on his economical and careful administration, his hbors and achicvcmciHs, audhisdesire to-build up a united and harmonious com monwealth. In closing, Mr. Stew art said: "All of the islands from Hawaii to Niihatt are clamoring for local self-government, an efficient and economical administration, and for the continued ascendancy of the Republican party. With these common objects in view we should be inspired to fulfill the words of that sweet singer of Israel, 'Uehold how good and pleasant a thing it is for brethren to dwell together in unity." ' Upon putting the motion the platform was adopted and is as fol lows: RKPUHLICAN I'LATPORM. The Republican party of the Territory of Hawaii, in convention assembled, hereby declares its alleeiance to the prin ciples'and traditions of the Republican party of the nation, ami to its policies as outlined in its platform, adopted at Chicago, in June, 1904. We heartily endorse the wise and pat riotic administration of President Roose velt, nnd rejoice that he hns' so success fully carried out tlie policies of his lamented predecessor, William McKiulcy . We endorse the nomination of Presi dent Roosevelt nnd Senator Pairhanks for President and Vice-President respec tively, nnd we pledge ourselves to further show" our approval by electing to Con gress the nominee o'f our party in this Territory. we heartily indorse the successful ad ministration of Governor Geo. R. Cnrter Since his appointment, he has gained the confidence and respect of all classes with in the Territory. He has shown that he relies upon the patriotism and good judgment of the people by calling' tlie legislature for the re-adjustment of the finances of the Territory, thus nlnciui! in the hands of the people's representatives tlie Unties ami responsibilities lor wlilcli they were elected. We cordially pledge our support to Delegate Kalniiiauaole, in his endeavors to secure I'ederal aid lor this Territory, mid we direct the attention ol the voters to the necessity of returning him to Con gress in order that he may complete the work he has planned to accomplish and hau bo well begun. Hisexe resulted in the taking over !KrM&nrttrh. rtious nave and maiti- the Federal securine an- r I iropriatiotis for the erection, at Ilouo- mu, 01 11 ielcral iiuarautliie station, and for the purchase of sites for national de fenses. Among the measures he intro duced in Congress were bills providing for Federal buildings at Honolulu and Hilo, for harbor improvements, for u revenue cutter, nijd for the relief of the occupants of government lands on the slopes of Punchbowl and to secure title to their homes. We have fulfilled the promises we made two years ago, nnd we point to the good work" done by our party at the last regular and special sessions of the Legislature, recalling the paswge of the County Act, of the Act reoignulziug the Hoard of Health, of the Act authorizing the is suance of Territorial bonds, of the Act providing for the appointment of a com mission to compile the statutes, of the Act providing for the employment of citizen labor on public works and making eight lmtirs a dav's lahnr on snrli wnrtf. nf llio Act adopting the Hag of Hawaii as the Hag of this Territory, mid of many finan cial and other important measure's, all of which tend to the material welfare of the people of this Territory.

We leiterale our adherence to the prin ciple of deccnlrnliratiou of power, nnd demand the immediate establishment by the Legislature, of county governments throughout the Tcirltory, and ulso the pasage of a general municipal govern ment net under which cities nnd towns may lie established. We will sictire, if necessary, such amendments to our Organic Act as inny be required to enable the Legislature to enact such legislation fully mill completely, and upon approved modem lines. Ami in this connection, wc point with satisfaction to the appoint ment by the Governor, pursuant to the resolution of the Legislature, of a Com mivtiou to draft a new County Act. We believe in the disposal of public lauds to bona fide settlers on the most favorable terms, mid will advocate the enactment of a law which will enable homesteaders lo construct roads ,p their holdings and apply the value of their labor thereon to the purchase price. Wc staunchly support the principle of the best education for the youth of the Territory in the public schools in order that they may become good citizens and intelligent voters, and the party pledges Itself to provide appropriations sufficient ly liberal to maintain the schools in the h ghest efficiency. Wc have secured liberal appropriations for the permanent Improvement of school houses, thus pro viding for the proper accommodation of the scholars. Our constant endeavor has been to secure callable educators nnd to give "the people1 the best possible educa tional system. We express our approval of it law creating n permanent school fund to be devoted to school purposes only, which shall be n guarnule of ample moneys to meet the demands of the broadest mid most advanced educational development. We advocate continued liberal appro- I printions for the maintenance of our un fortunate fellow cituens segregated on Mnlokni, and will urge I'ederal assistance toward measures for their relief anil cure. Wc approve the work of oiir Hoard of Health already initiated in this behalf. We advocate the speedy improvement of our harbors, wharfage and lauding facilities throughout the Territory, nnd shall earnestly strive to secure from the National Congress the necessary appro priatious for such work. We urge liberal appropriations for the erection of needed public buildings and other necernary public works, and for the Improvement and maintenance ot tlie public highways throughout the Terri tory. We Invor Lite continuance ly tlie Le gislature of n permanent sittlemeut up on Hx-Quecu Liliuoknhiui. We opjKxse all trusts anil monopolies and all combinations tending to control Miipniiesnud prices. We contend that the interests of this Territory cm be best served by the loyal adherence of our people to the policies and principles of the Republican Party, and so, relying 011 the wisdom and in tegrity of the voters of the Territory, we confidently bespeak their support in the ipproaching election for n Delegate to Congress nnd for Senators and Re presentatives in the Legislature. Rev. S. L. Desha made the no minating .speech of Jonah Kuhio Kalauianaole. He spoke feelingly in Hawaiian and was listened to at tentively by all the delegates. As the address was not translated into Fnglish we are unable to reproduce it here. When he closed, the con vention set up a deafening cheering for Kuhio. which lasted for several minutes. Ii. A. Fraser spoke on behalf of the Second District, which he said yielded the honor of seconding the nomination to the Fourth District. Here F. Ii. Thompson, the silver tongued orator of Oahu, was called upon 'ind delivered a ringing speech, filled with many beautiful periods. He spoke in part as follows: Mr. Cuaikman; Gentlemen of the Convention; Oahu esteems it n pleasure and an honor to raise her voice nnd pledge her votes hi support of the name presented to this convention by Hawaii. Oahu does this not because the nomi nee resides upon her shores; not because he belongs to any faction, chin or schism; not because he is. a prince among men; hut hiT.illsc he is 11 infill amoiiL' Drinces.

The result of the coming November election places the Territory of Hawaii in the Republican or 11011. Republican, the Democratic or non-Democratic list, aud'the Republicans of this Territory leuinml of this nominating convention n leader who can scatter the thin skirmish ing lines of Democracy, capture the cita del of the Home Ruler and march the youngest Territory squarely into the ranks 01 that grand old party upon every 1 page of whose record is engrossed a his tory of the prosperity and progress of a country, which is at once the admiration and the envy of all other nations. The success of the Republican party in the coining presidential election is in sullen and silent sadness conceded by 11 Democracy whose candidate for the any platlorm. Thc two great national parlies recog nize no goats, be they branded Socialist, Piipulist, Prohibitionist, or Home Rule. The people of the Territory want n man who will keep green in tlie memory of our national leaders the party's pint for in promises to maintain 11 turill wall which will protect our sugars from foreign com petition and our Islands from dry rot and commercial decay. We want n man who will insist upon the fulfilment of our party's promise to foster and encourage American shipping interests, so that tlie bays anil harbors of this way station of the Pacific will again be crowded with a merchant marine Hying the Hag of its nation. We want a man who will ilemoustmle to the authorities at Washington the un equivocal necesilty of studding our shores with guns of defense so that American ships nestling in our harliors after a trip through the Panama Canal, for the com pletion of which the party is pledged, will be safe from the attack of the navies of hostile nations. We wnnt n man who can carry the victorious standard of his party through the rolling valleys nnd along the suit kissed foothills of that hrlghlest pearl in the nccklessofthe Pacific, Kauai. Wc want a man who can, and will in spire confidence in the breasts of the voters of that Island of nupieiit kings, Maul. Wc want n man who can clasp with the true smpathy of a deep sorrower the withered hand of the Territory's wauls at Molokai. We want a man for whom a chant of welcome is always on the lips of the hardy inhabitants of Lnuai; a man who has the confidence and love of the mag nificent Island of Hawaii -from its surf laved shores to its snow crowned peaks: a man who has the respect, esteem, con fidence, honor nnd support of the voters of busy Oahu. And it gives mc the greatest pleasure to second the nomina tion of John Kalauianaole, who possesses all the "magnificent prerequisites ol the man the Territory demands; one tinder whose leadership the campaign of 1904 will be carried to a Republican victory as certain and as gratifying as was the cam paign of 1902 under the same leadership. On behalf of Maui, Delegate Coelho asked that the convention sing standing, the Hawaiian an them "Hawaii pouoe," which was done with a good will. Kaiwi, of Kauai in a short speech seconeded Kuhio's nomination fur that island. John C. Lane seconded the nomina tion from the Fifth. The secretary was instructed to 1 cast the ballot of the convention, and Hon. Jonah Kuhio Kalauiana ole was duly nominated by acclama tion, amid wild enthusiasm. At this juncture the delegate was ush ered into the hall and upon the platform by a committee consisting of A. G. M. Robertson, J. II. Wise and C. L. Crabbe. The convention received the delegate standing and three rousing cheers were given him as he took his place on the platform. Delegate Kuhio snoke briefly, thanking the Convention for the honor of a second nomination. He spoke of the opposition which he had to contend with in Wash ington, not only trotu oilier slates seeking appropriations, but by the efforts of in ividuals in Hawaii who sought lo discredit his work before Congress. A delegate can only work through the friends he makes in Congress, and it had been his aim to create as many friends for Hawaii as possible, which he felt he had succeeded in doing to a large extent. His remarks were received with prolonged applause and many expressions of approval on the part of the delegates. T. McCants Stewart introduced resolution, which was passed unanimously, as follows: Rhsoi.vud, That the Convention notes with pleasure the artistic mid splendid manner in which the convention Hall is decorated, and expresses its appreciation of the largeness and heartiness of the hospitality extended ly the coimulllee on reception and the citieus of Hilo, I ,,,. iVrritnrinl CVntril 1 ne territorial s.euir.11 Commit tee was then appointed upon the nomination of the several distiicts, as follows: Pirst District, II.
