FOR VICE-PRESIDENT, THEO. ROOSEVELT. Citizens of the Territory should ever be mindful that failure to have tli'lr nnmes on the registration rolls now open In Honolulu llnle will preterit them from voting nt the November elections. If residents of the outside districts on this island nrc ns Indifferent to tho registration as Honolulu people have bieu nt the outset. It will be well to give the country districts n long ad vance notice of the dates when Mi? Hoard will be In session at tho various country stopping places. The Hawaii Herald's nssertlon of lu llepubllcnnlsm seems hardly necessaty. That paper has staunchly supported Republican principles since Hawaii camo under American sway and can iie depended upon to support straight Re publican candidates lu the coming cam paign. Hllu's two newspapers .11 solidly Republican whatever tho pres ent tendencies of the district politics may be. Sessions of the Registration lloai.l should by all means be so timed as to favor the working classes, it Is prac tically Impossible for working men to register at the present morning session? arid It Is certainly a hardship to re turn to town In the evening after a hard day's work. If the Hoard could hold n session from S to C o'clock In trie afternoon It would be u great ac commodntlon (o a large class of voters. It should be the policy of the Hoard to make tho registration as convenient as possible. The urgent call of n Illlo paper for greater activity on the part, of tho Tei rltorlal committee is the best possible evidence that the district needs a help ing hand from the usual center of c tivlty. Hllo has Its own committee men who are naturally expected to take the Initiative towards organization In their own setllon ns the commlUemen of Maul have so successfully done. Knlluro (o (akc such action of their own volition Indicates that the powerful motive n convention would give Is de manded for the advancement of tho party throughout the Islands, Apropos of the election of n Territor ial delegate, there Is sufficient law to allow the go eminent to print ballots for the delegate, nnd suftklenc Interest among the people to cast ballots for the delegate In November. As the United States House of Representa tives Is the judge of members allowed u part In Its deliberations It will remain with that body to decide the rlgh(s of (ho eandldaio receiving (ho majority vote In Hawaii. The strength of tho Territory will certainly not bo en hanced, If the people here tnko tho stand that they uro not entitled to rep resentntlon nnd make no effort to ob- tuln It. It is difficult to imagine what pos sible factional purpose can be accom plished through holding the Territor ial convention In Hllo. Opponents of this plan seem to have the Idea that the action of tho delegates In conven tion will depend upon their surroun 1 Ings; a view of tho situation that does not credit tho delegates with the sta bility of character which Is their duo. As regards tho official acts of tho con vention, tho results accomplished In Hllo cannot differ from those In Hono lulu. The assistance delegations from nil tho Islands can give tho Hllo work ers will be Inestimable In giving tho campaign tho enthusiastic activity that assures success at tho polls. Capable, honest men who can bo elected Is tho qualification to which every legislative candidate should ans wer. If, however, n majority of me Senntorlnl candidates aie selected from cither ono of tho Ilepresentatlvo dis tricts, -votes are likely to bo lost through failure of residents of minority district!) to receive equal representa tion. It Is truo tho Senators aro elect ed by the whole Island but tho average legislator naturally, If not by studio 1 purpose, leans towards and Is more or less Influeneed In favor of the sect'nn In which ho resides. If the Republlcun candidates are equally divided between the two sections of Oahu contained In tho two Representative districts, sec tional Jealousies cannot possibly be a factor In the campaign. Till! IMKTIIICT COMMIT run. Member of the lllstrlrt roineiitlnns who meet for organUat lout bin nftcr noon HhoiiM not forttot thnt li no in oiuu the least Important of Hum duties Is the conduct of (he fortheom Iiik rnnipnlKH In their severnl dlstrldi t'lulcr the party rules the delegates not only convene to name candidates, 'i.ii having dono this they then constitute the committee to dliect the special work In their section, cooperating of course with the Territorial committee. Hence It Is thnt particular tnro J should ho taken In the Kelccllon of oltl- cers for the permanent organization. The clmlrmnn, secretary and trensuier of the contention villi of necessity oc cupy the same positions In the commit tee. The chairman of eacn convention should not only oc n good presiding oincer, hot n mnn of wetl known exe-u-tlvo ability, well ucqunlnted with (ho workers of his district, the particular character of the work required nnd so situated In his business relations ns to be nblo to glvo plenty of time to (he conduct of the campaign. Tho Dla trlct committees will constitute the real working nrm of the campaign. Upon their Integrity to detail nnd ncllvo ef fort will largely depend the character of tho Legislature. Thus In many re spects their position Is more Important than the Territorial committee. The latter can accomplish little without the energetic nnd united support of the committeemen of the district. HERALD'S REPUBLICANISM. (Hawaii Herald.) Some, people In Hllo, with whom the wish Is father to tho thought, have circulated n rumor thnt the Herald is not n Republican newspaper. The statement Is Incorrect. So fnr ns tho present editor, who wns one of the or ganlzcrs of tho first Republican club on the Island, Is aware the Herald has been Republican ever since he took charge, thrco years ago, nnd It will con tinue (o forwnrd (he Interests of tho people of Hawaii so long ns he holds tho postlon. It has been tho nlni oT the Herald to work In the Interests of Hl lo, advocating Improvements of everv character. It favors self-government for this Island and will oppose any can didate who sticks to the theory thnt the center nnd circumference of govern ment shall continue to be Honolulu. It advocated free franchise for Hawalluns and tho editor of tho Herald was n colleague of Hon. C. A. (Jalliralth In framing a minority report favoring un limited franchise for Hnwaltans in tho memorial presented to the Hawall-in Commissioners who visited Hllo In lS'JS The Herald believes there nro men lu tho Uepubllcnn party eminently quali fied to serve the public in the Legis lature and In CongrcsR and until that Is proven n mistake It docs not believe tho endorsement of candidates by "citizens' committees" or kindred or g.intzntlons is necessary to election or the securing of good men. It Is the history of cities In tho Stntes that such bodies nre not formed until the poli tics of the section have been proven rotten. Verb. sap. 8C0RB8 BRITISH HOSPITALS. London, Aug. 28 . Mrs. Hlch.iri Chamberlain, sister-in-law of the Sec retary of State for (lie Colonies nnd who very recently returned from Soulh Africa, has been Interviewed regarding, her experiences there. She declaici that every word said by William Ash mend llartlett Ilurdctt-CouUs, Conso,' vatlvo member of Parliament for West minster, about the management of tho mllltaiy hospitals was true. The sur geon general, sho usborts, threw every obstacle In tho way of forwarding medi cal supplies. "With n few exceptions the nrmy doctors,' 'says Mrs. Chamberlain, "are a low class of men. Those In South Africa neglected their .patients. Sl cases of drunkenness among nrmy doc tors came under my observation. After these people had come In contact with the police they were sent homo In charge of invalids."
