TWO MODES
PRESENTED
For the Information and convenience
t the party workers and the general
public Interested In the proper nnd fair
adjustment of tho present difficulties of
the Republican regarding their
rules, the reports of both majority
nnd minority of tho committee
are herewith printed In full.
By comparing them with the present
rules which arc very generally distributed
and additional copies of which
may be obtained at .Republican headquarters
or from Chairman A. G. M.
Ttobertson, or Secretary Harry Murray
In the County Sheriff's office It will bo
seen that by the
plan the old "district committee" Is
given the functions of a senatorial, representative
and county nominating convention
In Maul and Kauai countles.wlth
an executive or campaign committee
elected by it, as at present, one member
from each precinct; while on Hawaii
and Oahu, where there are two representative
districts, the two "district"
committees each nominate representatives
and then elect an "executive committee"
as above. But the "executive
committees" of the fourth and fifth
districts combined on Oahu, and the
first nnd second districts combined on
Hawaii, then become a county and
senatorial convention, which nominates
the senatorial and county tickets and
tlects n. county campaign or executive
committee, having full charge of cam'
palgns and patronage within Its county
and districts. This Is similar to tho
plan In vogue In many cities of electing
delegites to ward convention", these
conventions electing a lesser number
of delegates to city conventions which
make the actual nominations, and was
the system of convention elections
originally In use here.
The Lane plan elects delegates to
both district and county conventions
directly at tho primaries two sets at
once. But the district convention appoints
no executive or campaign committee.
Tho county convention elects
the executlvo committee which control")
all matters In the county nnd Its senatorial
nnd representative districts.
Lane, however, would mako all county
executlvo committees subordinate to
the Territorial executive committee.
All patronage, no matter how trivial,
must go through tho Territorial committee
after passlngtho county committee.
This feature nnd the "no
traitors wanted" rulo which ho wants
to ndd, Lnne says Is to strengthen the
rarty against the Civic Federation, as
the Territorial committee can be relied
on to cut out nil "traitors," but neither
tho county committee nor tho Republican
Supervisors can ,be trusted to do
so. I
A minor Issue raised Is that'the moro
delegates the more party workers. To
meet this, Lane would have double the
number of conventions, while
and Hughes favor doubling the
sire of the conventions by making tho
basis one delegate for every nrteen
votes, ns ngalnst every twenty-five
votes as at present.
The report omits
to provide expressly for the nomination
of either senators or county ofllcers In
Maul and Kaual cuuntles, but that Is
doubtless a clerical omission, as adding
the wordB "nnd, In counties comprising
but ono representative district,
candidates for the Senate and for county
office," nt the end of section 3.
article II., to which section they already
ricommend nn amendment, or similar
words, would cover It.
MAJORITY REPORT.
The following is tlio majority or
report:
Your speelnl committco on rules
which was appointed with special reference
to tlio rules referring to district
and county committees and conventions,
beg leave to report as follows;
As fnr ns tlio Territorial convention
and central committco are concerned
wo recommend no clinngc. Rut wo arc
in fnvor of combining tlio work of tlio
district and county conventions. Wo
believe that tho samo delegates that
nominato tlio different candidates
should have a voico in the selection of
tho committees who will havo charge
of tho campaign work.
As in this Territory thero is no representative
district containing moro
than ono county wo do not sco tho necessity
of having a separate convention
for the counties nnd districts. Tho
contention of somo of tho members of
tho party is tht tho more conventions
wo have the morq nctivo party workers
wo shall have. If this is tho sense
of tho majority of your committco
bclievo that uctler results woum uo
accomplished by incrpasinp tho slzo of
tho conventions rather than tho number
of conventions. Wo, therefore,
recommend that nrticlo IB be stricken
out and that tho rules governing tho
district conventions bo modified so
that the district conventions shall nom-
inato the county candidates as well as
the candidates for tho legislature And
that the executive committees appoint
ed by the district conventions bo tho
county committees as well as tlio tils
trict committees.
In cases where there aro more than
one district as in the euso of tho county
of Oahu and tho county of Hawaii,
we favor a county committee composed
of tho members of the two district executive
committees sitting together as
one committco and that tho chairman
ef tho county committco together with
four members from each of tho two
districts shall constitute tho county ex.
eeutivo committee. Then wo would
recommend that whero a district executive
committco makes a recommendation
for office that this recommenda
tion go to the executive committco of

YOKOHAMA. Oct. 18. The
has received the following telegnun
from Its correspondent: "Since the
bomb outrage at the Peking station,
evening of the 12th Her Majesty summoned
the Emperor to her presence
and suddenly nsked him If he knew
anything nbout the occurrence. The
Emperor was bo taken aback by tne
nny response. Tnereupon six guarus
made their appearance and escorted
His Majesty to an adjacent

CROWN PRINCE IN IUKISHA.
Tho Japan Mall records an Interesting
Incident of the Naval Jtevlew. The
Crown Prince took part In the Review
as a Naval captain and ncted as a
member of Admiral Togo's staff. It
was observed that, at the time of returning
to the ships from the railway
station, where Admiral Togo and a
number of ofllcers had assembled to I
receive tho Emperor, His Imperial
IHghness refused to enter a carriage,
though pressed by Admiral Togo to
do so. He declared himself to be present
merely ns a Captain ln the Navy
who served under Admiral Togo's or
ders, nnd he persisted in his resolve
to mount a Jtnrlklsho. after Admlnl
logo had seated himself In a similar
humble vehicle. On the occasion of
the Emperor's return after the Ro-
view, the Prince still retained it.s
character of Captain, and again rode
In a Jlnrlklsha. Of course this was not
tlio first tlmethat His Imperial
nens had ridden ln a jlnrlklsha. He
hr.d often done so when making trips
in the country. But it certainly was
the first lnstnnce of anything of the
kind at a grand State ceremonial.
CAPTURED WARSHIPS IN RE
VIEW.
In the course of a' particularly
teu sting description of the Naval Re
view, the Japan Times gives tho following
nccount of the condition of tho
captured Russian warships:
The battleship Nlcolal still showed
some marks of damage ln battle,
though mostly patched up In haste for
this grand occasion. The Peresvlet
was a very woeful picture of
unless otherwiso ordered by tho Territorial
central committee, shnll havo en-
tiro charge of nnd supervision of tho
conduct of district and county cam
paigns."
That section 7 of nrticlo 1A bo
stricken out nnd tho following section
bo substituted in placo xthoreof, namely:
"Section 7. Appointments to county
nnd Territorial olliccs shall bo recommended,
ns far as practicable, upon tho
endorsement of a majority of tho executive
committco of tho precinct club
to which tho npplicant belongs, a recommendation
by a majority of tho
membors of tho county committee from
tho district in -which ho resides, nnd tlio
approval of tho executlvo committee
of tho Territorial central committee."
That section 8 of articlo 1A bo
stricken out and tho following section
be substituted in placo thorcof,
namely:
"Section 8. A proxy may bo given
by a member of a county committeo to
another member of such county
from tho same district, or to a
member of the last preceding county
convention coming from tho same dis
trict. No person shall hold moro thnn
ono proxy."
That section 1 of nrticlo IB bo
stricken out nnd tho following section
bo substituted in placo thorcof,
namely:
"Section I. The basis of representation

The system followed In England
Is exactly analagous. Grants of corn-yielding
estntes are not made, since the
relics to the Emperor. His Majesty is.rown nas no sucn assets ni us
stati d to have been much Impressed rosal, but giants of money are voted
by Parliament, with the Implied condi
tion that they are Intended to support
the rank which, also, has lAen bestowed
on their recipient In recognition
of his merits. The bearer of a title of
nobility Is merely embarrassed by the
distinction unless some means of supporting
Its dignity are forthcoming,
nnd therefore practical England, when
a man Is made a Lord, takes caro that
he shall have resources to live as a
Lord. The same principle was recognized
In Japan in the early Meljl years.
Thus, when the Emperor bestowed a title
of nobility. His Majesty usually ac
companied It by a sum of money, which
was treated as entailed property and
specially designed tq support the recip
ient s ranK. we no not Know whether
His Majesty observed this rule ln
every Instance, or whether Its operation
extended only to members of the old
nobility, who, though belonging to the
ranks of the kuge, were entirely without
resources to figure In the world as
Princes, Marquises or Counts. Wo do
not know, too, whether the custom was
operative ln all Instances or whether
it has now fallen Into abeyance. But
It Is at any rate evident that, If Admiral
Togo Is to be raised to tho
as a Viscount or a Count, he must
have an Income more or less commensurate
with his rank, and the Diet
should not hesitate to make a suitable
appropriation. The J1J1 Shlmpo suggests
a million of yen, basing that
figure on the amount granted by Parliament
to Lord Roberts. But England
Is not Japan. Togo would
be extremely perplexed by the receipt
of such a sum ns a million yen. We
imagine, indeed, that his mind will revolt
against the Idea of pecuniary reward
In any shape or In nny amount,
but that is purely his own personal
concern. The nation has to do Its duty

FINDS BY THE
'
ARCHIVARIAN
A prescription which Surgeon W. Davis
,of His Majesty's
Blonde wrote out for Queen
on July 12, 1825, has been found,
by Archlvnrlan Lydecker, among the
old documents belonging to the Hawaiian
Government. The paper Is yellow
with age, but the Ink Is In excellent
condition. The prescription Is painfully
technical. At the top are tho words,
"For Queen Kaahumanu." This Is
probably one of the first prescriptions
written out by a regularly appointed
surgeon for any of the royal family of
Hawaii. The warship Blondo was
commanded by Byron, brother of Lord
Byron. Tho Blonde brought tho bodies
of Kamehameha II. and his Queen back
from London, where they died of
measles.
Another Interesting paper which Mr.
Lydecker has unearthed Is a letter from
Rev. Richard Armstrong to R. C
Minister of Foreign Affairs, dated
April 12, 1847. This refers to the late
William N. Armstrong. Tho letter Is
as follows:
To H. E., R. C "Wyllle.
My Dear Sir: My.oldest son, William
Nevlns, now twelve years old, is In
the way of earning a little money by
his own industry, In the way of bookbinding
during leisure days and hours.
It is his wish, and also that of his
parents, thnt he begin to provide something
toward cojnpletlng "hTs education,
or against ttf time when ho will be
thrown on his uwn resources, which will
be at 18.
What we have thought of Is to pur
chase a few acres of land either In this
vicinity or at Makawao, to bo held ln
trust for him until he shall bo of nge.
He Is a native-born subject of His
Majesty. Will such a measure meet
tho approbation of His Mnjesty's Gov
ernment? You will do me a favor by
communicating the views of this government
on the subject. Should this
proposition be entertained favorably,
other boys of my family, and others,
may follow suit. This should bo kept
ln mind. '
Truly your humble servant,
(Signed) R. ARMSTRONG.
Honolulu. April 12, 1847.
Another document of Interest Is a set
of printed quarantine rules, which came
oft the presses ln Honolulu ln 1825. They
nro probably the first rules of tho kind
ever published west of tho Mississippi
River.
A whiskey bottle is filed away with
care among the archives of the Hawaiian
government, as are also two of tho
nodding chicken-feather helmet adornments
formerly worn by King
on state occasions. The bottle Is
certainly a unique "document" for the
archives, but n written statement
across the face of the label shows that
It played an Important part in the revolution
of 1893, when the attempt was
made to overthrow the "republic and
restore the Queen to her throno.
The bottle Is an ordinary one, with
a bulging cork, and Is about half full
of a liquid which, for some reason or
another, no one In the Capitol Is willing
to partake.
The label reads as follows:
"
KENTUCKY'S PRIDE
Superior Bourbon
Whiskey
Distilled Expressly for
P. T. Lenehan & Co.,
Honolulu, H.
Across the face Is the following
written with pen and Ink:
"In re treason of Gullck et al. Ex.
B. Filed this 21st day of January,
1S95. J. W. Jones, 1st Lieut. Co. D,
N. G. H., Recorder."
After the death of Charles Carter at
Diamond Head, who was killed by
revolutionists, the government troops
were dispatched to Bertelmnnn's place
and placed on guard. It was a strenuous
time. One night when the guards
were being changed every hour, so that
no sentry would have any opportunity
of falling asleep, the officer ln charge Is
snld to have sent for somo hot coffee.
This would aid ln keeping the soldiers
awake. The coffee c me. Also a bottle
of whiskey was b ought along. The
officers said the men could drink coffee,
but not whiskey. It was suggested
that whiskey might be put In the coffee.
No. It might make them drowsy.
But It happened that one of the
Boldlers drank some whiskey. He fell
asleep half an hour afterward, and
did not wake until the next morning,
about daylUht. He was shaken several
times during the night, but he was In
a deep, heavy slumber, and could not be
awakened.
The bottle of whiskey was kept ln
the camp. But whether this is the bottle
that Is now In the archives, or
another bottle which may have
figured otherwise ln that short-lived
rifr&gg
i
if'V'i'
.".

A PRETTY PRESENTATION.
Vlggo Jacobsen sent up to the officers
of the Kohala club yesterday
through the medium of their local
agents an Illuminated address Intended
for presentation to Mr. James
Sakal, erstwhile manager of the snld
Institution for many years, complimenting
him upon the efficient and
conscientious manner ln which he did
his work while ln that position. The
memorial was a beautiful bit of art,
embellished .with water color sketches
of the sacred mountain, the
Lotus flower, the Imperial chrysan
themum coat-of-arms, the Japanese
crane, the crossed sun flags, the Tori I
or Shinto temple gate and other things
dear to the Japanese heart. The recipient
should be proud of this gift,
since It is probably the very first occasion
of an Oriental resident being
memorialized by haole friends.
