In the ranks of their crltlcB.
As to thu Individual casus which
the enemies of the p.uty nru picking
upon to promoto paity dissension, wo
doubt that I'. J. I-owrey and C. 11.
Wood will feel at all Injured or that
the cause of Rood government will
xciltmsly suffer on account of their
beliiR defeated In a brisk precinct
i an vans by tsucli men as Mr. l'rosser,
Mr. Chamberlain, and Mr. Long. As
n matter of fact, wo aro inclined to
believe that Wood and I.owrey toted
for their successful opponents.
Tho Mnno.i precinct contest ap
pears to have brought out a very good
tote, and u good representation has
lesulted. Thu charge that Mr. Raw
lins makes iigaintt bis opponents Is
the same charge that was laid
against the Republican party when
tt can led a Territorial election komo
years ago. Wo don't know whether
Mr. Hawllns was on that ticket or a
iiiemhcr of the Republican commit
tee nt that time or not. If ho was,
we have no doubt that ho entered n
Kiting protest against such practise
as hit now allege, and In this latest
contest Is following up his Ideals of
opposition established at that time.
Thu Manoa affair Is another of
those Imprcsslvo Incidents which
demonstrate the mandatory need for
u dlrcct-prlninry law, under which
the balloting will bo conducted by
law und directed by Territorial oin
dais. The noptibllcan party Is to be con
gratulated on the primary results as
ti whole, lloth tho conventions will
size up well, and from among tho
delegates It should be possible to se
lect one ot tho best forces ot cam
paign workers that tho Republican
party has over had.
Tho gang that starts out to malto
troublo after tho Saturday results
must ho looked upon as more nnxlotia
for tumble and defeat than It Is
for the. suclcss of competent govern
ment under tho Republican paity.
RECORD WHICH REFORMERS
Tho publication of Sheriff Inukea's

iiifoi matloii which tho Supervisors

Judgo for themselves of tho transac

partment on which tho declared ad
vocates of reform In Honolulu havo
placed tho hall-mark ot their appiov
r.l. Tho testimony as published In do
tall shows that tho previous state
meats given by tho press did not
exaggerate tho situation. It Is eas
ier to see why Shcilff Inukea should
not again subject himself to tho tiro
of candidacy for offlco than It Is to
undoiHtnnd what tho reformers ex

All tlnoiigh the testimony It will

the Democratic paity, offer to take
up the obligation nfter liming Icai li
ed that the United States District At
torney was In possession ot tho nolo
and had made copies of It?
If that transaction repiescnted n
high standard of olllclal competence
and an Ideal average ot public mur

The testimony speaks for lUelf.
The reformers nip hacking an nill-
cer who states that It Is usual to le

Tho Incident of the four chnlis and

custom to bo not over-particular
