A GREAT NIGHT
(From Wednesday's Advertiser )
At the front door of Jiie'Clnrk'n notorioiiH saloon dive, In I'alnmn, the
mnclilno ItcpuMicnna held fnrtli last evening. A fair-sized crowd wns present.
Rcforo the cml of tho evening tho swinging of the doors to the saloon showed
low well the meeting hnd popularized tlio resort. Whllo W. t). Smith was
unking nn address from the. stand nnd nil the policemen of that section, in
uniform nnd In plnin clothes, were in the street, u crap game wns in process
at the bnck door of the "cafo."
Howovcr, the speechmnking wm enthusiastic nnd a long list of candidates
for ofllcc were heard. A Hawaiian quintet club was In attendance and !!
coursed frequently and had much to do in holding the crowd.
(1KAK IMPAIRS CAMI'IIELL.
A. V. Oear made an impassioned speech against Territorial Treasurer
Campbell for Riving out lists to the afternoon papers of candidates on the three
tickets who had not paid certain taxes owing to the government. Oear was one
of them. JCr. Oear characterized tlio action of the treasurer as unjust nnd
unfair lu that ho had made a statement to the papers that ho had selected from
tlic'list of the candidates thoso who owed and ho would sue them.
"I twill not act as the Territorial Treasurer is acting today when I am
elected a Supervisor on the Cth of November," said Mr. Gear. "I have
been handed a paper, this which reads as follows:
" 'The following people aro to bo sued ror non-payment of their taxes
becauso they nro candidates at the present time and, ns treasurer, he has
selected them to bring suit against them.' "
"I want to tell you as n taxpayer," continued Mr. Oear, "that a few
dollars of my taxes nru not paid. A
mo yesterday and told me that if my
nnmn wnnbl be published from one end of
... - .. ...
don't you use tlio names ot an mni owe
Mr. Gear then read the names given
"I refused yesterday to pay what I owed, because I wanted to see what
IIipv nrn L'ointr to do nbout it. J wanted to know how they would act, for if
1 am elected I will know ittst how to
and nil alike whether they have the money to pay or not and whether thoy
arc candidates or not.
"After I nni elected you can come nnd shake my hand as you do today
and I will see that you arc all treated alike. I propose to see that every laborer
gets enough to take care of his family. I will see that ho gets 1.."0 a day.
Jlr. Gear emphasized tho fact that he would be elected on November C.
Io had assurance of that and said he knew what he was talking about.
COUNTV ACT AND CASH.
Kalciopu told tho people that every one had been benefited by tho County
Act passed by the last Republican Legislature. The Democrats were claiming
for Trent that ho had tried hard to get the wages of the county employes paid
in cash without any discount, and had succeeded. Kalciopu claimed that Trent
was only following out the law enacted by the last Legislature.
CIlILLlNGWOltTII'S TAR SPEECH.
C. T. Chillingworth in English saiil that tho Hawaiian young men in the
Republican party arc endeavoring to play a fair game. "In other words we
aro meeting tho Democrats at their own game," he said. "Va nro supporting
tho Republican ticket from to to bottom. Wo are supporting tho white
element consistently. Tlio Democratic party aro not doing that. Tho Democrat
party have not supported tlio white element of their ticket. Have you
evor heard Iaukea, in tho Hawaiian language, support McClnuahanf I submit
to you that he has not done so. MeClanalian has been put on the Democratic
ticket to mill tho white votes in this fight between Brown nnd Iaukea. I defy
any man, woman or child to say that they ever heard Jaukea m tho Hawaiian
language speak for this stranger. They nro simply Kicking Hawaiian votes
for tho Hawaiian element on their ticket because they know if they ask them
to voto for McClnnnhan ho (MeUlannhnn) will defeat tho whole ticket."
In Hnwniian, Chillingworth said in part: "Iaukea and other Democrats
say to you in their speeches that they love tho l'rinco because, ho is a Hawaiian,
and they, too, arc Hawaiians, and thoy therefore ask tho voters to stand
ly tho Democrats. Yes, that is only tho lovo that emanates from tho lips
and not from the heart. Tho Democrats tried to disfranchise the Hawaiians.
If it hnd not been for the l'rinco nt Washington who protected your rights,
thes.0 rights might liavo been taken away from you.
"Iaukea tells you in English, to vote tho straight Democratic ticket from
top to bottom. If he has any love for tho Hawaiians why should ho advocato
standing by MeClanalian, a stranger, from whoso body the smell of the tar
has not yet disappeared."
M,r. Chillingworth, according to tho Advertiser's interpreter, then praised
tho Home Killers, becauso they had selected a Hawaiian to head their ticket.
Mr. Chillingworth said that if elected to tho Semito ho would try his best
to see that any leper bill introduced was passed. He said he had been heart
and boul witli the leper bill introduced by John Lano at tho last Legislative

The crnwd was n largo one, the ladles
being out In force. Even tho upstairs
In iho tenement houses In the
vicinity were well-filled with listeners.
There were thoso In tho crowd who
said that n number of laborers went
upstairs where they could hear with
out being seen, nn account of Instructions
having been given workers In tho
road nnd garbage departments not to
attend Democratic meetings.
Ioela Klaknht was tho first speaker
being Introduced, ns were the other
spellbinders, by R. champion
hot air vendor of his district.
Ioela said that the Republicans had
been tried and found wanting nnd
urged that a chance be given tho Democrats
to make good. The road board
only pild men $1.25 a day nnd tho
Democrats If successful would raise
this rate. Tho police machine paid Its
underlings $70 a month while the poor
Hawaiians working nn tho roads In the
hot sun, only received $1.23 a day. Last
Sunday he had hado the rounds of the
Palama saloons and found a disgrace

JARRETT'S LADY FRIENDS
W. Paul Jarrett, who was well-received,
especially by the ladles, asked
the crowd to voto tho Democratic
ticket "from head to tall." He descended
from tho stump greeted by a
chorus of "alohas."
II. T. Moore had no apology to make
for coming before the people as a Democrat.
There were Just as good men
on the Democratic ticket as on any
other trlcket. Tho Republican party
had promised certain things and had
signally failed to give them.
I IUST ACE'S SWEET BAIT.
Last Saturday night nt Aala Park,
Charlie Hustaco had promised that If
his party got In ngaln the Water
Works and Sewerage departments
would be turned over to the county
and tho worklngmen would be great
beneflters thereby. Ho branded this
statement as false and misleading and
asked his listeners ;iot to swallow
Hustnco's sweet bait. The thing
sounded good but was Impracticable
A I'OPULAR PLANK.
The Democrats had a plank In their
platform making $1.50 a day, the minimum
wage for wlelders of a pick und
shovel. This promlso would, If the
Democrats received proper support,
surely bo kept. The tax returns show
ed enough money. If properly spent,
to pay laborers $1.50 a day Instead of
QUESTION OF DISBURSEMENT.
It wasn't the Republican party who
wni paying wages. The money came
from taxes paid by tho people. The
supervisors were only distributing
agents nnd a Democratic board of supervisors
could disperse money every
bit ns well as the present Republican
board. If all tho Republican office
holders died today the laborers would
contlnuo to hold their Jobs.
THE MORE THE BETTER.
Since being a supervisor, Moore said.
he had east his ote every tlmo for tho
worklngman. If moie Democrats were
elected supervlsois tho worklngman
would receive a correspondingly laiger
M A. Sllva said that the obtaining
of votes by tho Democrats wasn't a
question of beer. They rolled upon tho
virtue of a sane, considerate und lib
e:al platform. The Republicans said
precious little of paying tho working-man
J1.B0 a day until they saw a plank
to that effect In the Democratic platform.
They had been spending other
people's money while In olllee and
should have been moro liberal In tho
matter of wages.
