to interest tho Islanders In tho trad
with Portland and the Northwest, and
jccently sent cable messages to isl
and consumers quoting prices on
flour, feed. hay. grain, potatoes, on

staples used there to any extent, and
In response to these messages a num
Ber of orders have been received.
Of tho "00 or S00 tons already In

Orders for sashes, doors, windows and
other building materials have been re
ceived to a largo extent, and lumber
to tho amount of KO.OOO feet will udd to
tills portion of tho cargo.
This freight would have been shipped
via tho American-Hawaiian Company
ftom I'uget Sound had not tho
been ordered horo this voyage,
which consignment, together with the
J00 tons of feed ordered several days
ago, and tho largo consignment of
San freight to bo
brought hero by tho vessel, made It
essential to pend the Hllonlnn to Port
land Instead of laying her up nt tho
Bay City for repairs and cutting out
this city for ono trip.
That tho Hawaiian peoplo aro going
after Portland business Is evidenced by
tho orders received by Mr. Lindsay this
week, which Instructs him to advertise
for bids for tho supplying of material
for the construction of the proposed
new Alakea dock nt Honolulu. This
structure will require 1,500,000 feet of
lumber of different lengths, etc.; 400
piles of different sizes aro contnined in
the specifications, nnd tho rest of tho
material Is designated likewise In tho
proposals being tent to tho several lo
cal mills. Tho placing of this ono or
der In Portland will mean much to this
alty In tho way of furthering tho trade

lumber Is n desirable product In the
Islands, nnd If they can bo supplied
here at n reasonable rato the trade In
this branch alono will provo profitable,
Tho sugar refining season Is now nt
tho fag end and tho Matson Navigation
Company Is preparing to lay up some
of tho ships In tho Hawaiian service
for tho winter, but Instead of tying
tho vessels up at San Francisco they
will probably be utilized In the lumber
trado between Portland and tho Pay
City. Negotiations for tho chartering
of tho ship Falls of Clyde aro now be
Jng nrranged, nnd she will probably
make several trips horo for lumber
rargoeB In tho near future. Sho has
been engnged In handling tho sugar
crop from Honolulu and Hllo to San

of tho Mntson steamships may bo used

Tho Hllon'an arrives at San Francisco
Friday and will sail for Portlnnd
on September 29 with a largo cargo of
freight from tho Hay City for Portland.

to open the meeting with prayer. Ho
then opened proceedings by stating that
the Democrats had gone Into the present
campaign with a win or die platform.
The Republicans hnd trampled
upon the people long enough and It was
time for the peoplo to act. The Republican
platform was drawn up by three
opposing factions and was not Intended
to bo lived up to.
S. K. Hul, candidate for representative,
said that he brought good tidings
from Walanae, where the Democrats
were gaining ground. Ho had formerly
been a Republican, but that party had
failed to carry out their solemn pledges
and ho hnd thrown In his lot with the
Domoerats. Ho asked particularly for
support for Iaukea and Harvey.
A gambling house Is being openly
run on Berctnnla avenue by Charley
Moore, said Ioela Klakahl, candidate
for Representative, the next speaker.
This gambling Is known to Brown, who
perhaps Is getting something out of It.
Such a state of nffalrs will be stopped
when Iaukea is elected. The speaker
further declared that If elected ho
would see that any of Governor Carter's
vetoes would be overruled.

worked with his hands. Under tho Republicans
the cost of living had advanced

reforms to which the Democrats wero

to do away with tho present system
under which there were so many spoiled

referred to the fact that lately the

on the County Board to see that
they were always kept so. He thought
that the Republicans had been riding
to power long enough on the backs of
the peoplo and then telling them to run
back home and scratch off the fleas.

Frank R. Harvey, nominee as Supervisor
at Large, said that he was
tired of seeing the county controlled
by tho old police nnd road machines.
Others were tired of these machines,
too. There was John Lane, who had
been run through the machine and had
had most of the Republicanism wrung
out of him. Lane was on tho fence
now and would probably bo throwing
his strength to the Democrats before
tho campaign was over. Sheriff Brown
had proved himself Incompetent, or
worse, in not putting a stop to the
open gambling going on. Tho game at
tho old flshmarket, for Instance, was
notorious. Sometimes even the members
of tho police force were seen taking
part In these games. Everybody
knows that gambling Is going on now.
but If Iaukea Is elected this state of
things will bo stopped, especially If
ho be backed up by other Democrats
In office. Tho speaker referred to tho
trouble between himself and A. Fernandez.
He had agreed to let the nom
ination go to Fernandez, but the con
vention did not want It that way, and
ho had bowed to the wish of the majority,
which In the Democratic party
M. A. Sllva made a stirring speech,
Ho was proud to say that he was not
a machine candidate nnd was running
as a representative from the Fourth
for tho Portuguese. The Republicans
had ridden on the Portuguese during
tho past six years with their machlno
and the Portuguese were tired of being
ridden on. They wero going to voto
Democratic this time. It had been n
wonder to him how two or three men
hnd been nblo to ride on the peoplo as
they had done. He saw no reason why
the Hawallans nnd the Portugueso
should have to nlways carry tho Republicans
to victory and then be left
outside tied up to a post. Sllva asked
bitterly why the citizens hero had not
been given tho same chance to get land
as had been given to tho Molokans, In
stead of having been thrown out to
make room for them. Such things as
that had driven the Portuguese out of
Hawaii by tho thousands, nnd now,
nfter spending thousands getting In
other laborers tho planters were going
after more Portuguese. He asked the
peoplo to gel together and smash up
the machine. The hnolcs alone could
not do It. The Portugueso nnd tho
would have to help, and he believed
they would. They hnd got county
government by Insisting on It and
they could smash up tho machine In
the samo way.
W, A. Kinney spoke on behalf of Curtis
Iaukea. He thanked the big audi
ence for their good conduct and attention.
In November either Brown or
Iaukea would bo defeated. He know
that the Brown people were spending
money to keep the old machine at
work, but Iaukea's victory or defeat
depended upon the people nnd not upon
any money. If Iaukea is elected tho
old police machine would be wiped out.
The Democrats had nominated a good
set of men, because at their convention
there had not been any of the money
or threats of Sam Johnson going
around. Tho Democrats could not be
Influenced In that wny, but placed their
, "Bt ,n doing what was right and
leaving it to the voters. On the side
of Iaukea were found the majority of
the baoles and for him also should be

E. Ingham, Jesse Ullhlhl and W. W.

Thayer commented on the fact that
after being fifteen months In office the
County Attorney had only now decided
to enforce tho liquor law. This was
about tho style of tho Republican party,
which begins to get busy about tho
time tho voting comes around again.
He spoke of the liquor law as a sample
of Republican legislation, a law which
the Democrats will reform when they

BAND AT ST. LOUIS.
Tho Koyal Hawaiian band and Olco

of its engagement at J'orost Park Highlands,
this afternoon, has proven tho
biggest surprise to tho public of this
city in many years. Thoso who had
not board of tho fniuc of the
went to tho Highlands expecting
to bear music of a modiocro order. Instead,
thoy listened to a military band
of CO men that compares with any of
the famous bands of this country or
of Europe, and possessing varied qualities
which no other band has.
To tho novelty of finding in the
Koyal Hawaiian band an organization
that compares with any band in tho
world, must bo added tho unique qualities
of tho members, who are also
skilled singers nnd players of native
instruments. John S, Kills, tbo tenor;
Miss Lei Lohun, the prima donna; Solomon
Hiram, the romedian vocalist, and
Sonny Cunhn, the director nf the glee
club, are given ovations nightly at the
Highlands. Col. Hopkins is so delighted
with the work of tho Hnwaliani
that he announces Unit thoy will be retained
for a month, and Uie manner in
which the crowds dock to tbe gates is
positive proof of the popularity of the
singers nnd plnvers from the "Paradise
