Mr. Olsen stated he wanted to rorre-.tt an impression he bad made in his speech at the pumping' station in I'alama Tues day evening, when he remarked that if Kuhitr was onrinaied it would be int. possible to elect him to congress: what he meant was that while he would rote for Kuhio, if nominated, for it is4 no eessary 'to elect a Republican if possi ble, he did not believe that Kuhio ceuld beat Met andless, and to elect McCand less would be a calamity for Hawaii, The time has come for a change.

In view of the recom mendations made by Mr. CamlnettL it is quUo likely that the nex"t territorial legislature will amend the Hawaiian birth certificate law in such manner that there will be no occasion for the federal authorities to further object to recognizing these certificates.
