Just how the Hawaiians are tailing
a most sensible view of the situation
and are willing to kokua the attempt
to get at Washington a man who will
attend to business is shown . by the
speech made nt Waimea, Kauai, recent
ly by W. O, Crowell, one of the mcst
influential Hawaiians in the district
and a former strong Kuliio man. The
only franchise ever voted Hnwaiian
in the local legislature was one for an
rdoctrie franchise at Waimea; aud it
would be supposed that Kuhio Would
look after the bill when it went to
Washington for ratification in congress,
a is necessary for Hawaiian franchises.
A certified copy of the bill as it pas-ed
the legislature was duly mailed to
Kuhio in IU13, and Crowell waited for
action on it.
When Kuhio was In Wsimes a couple
of weeks ago, Crowell asked him what
had become of that bill, as he had not
heard of it latol.v, and, was astounded
te have the Delegate say he didn't
know there was such a bill. - This, de
spite the fact that Crowell and every
body else concerned knew that Kuhio
had received the bill for presentation
in congress. Crowell told all about tbe
matter in the Waimea meeting. .
Got lawyer's Bill. .
Another thing he told about was this:
A few year ago, when in Washington,
Queen Liliuokalani wrote' to Crowell
and told him that S man by his name
had died shortly before in tbe East,
leaving heirs in Hawaii, ( row.-ll bad
every reason to believe' that ho. was
one of the heirs referred to, and wrote
to Kuhio about it. Kuhio never even
acknowledged the letter, and the only
thing he (CrowoJl) ever received back
was a bill from some Washington iw
yer for $25.
"Of course," said Crowell, "these
are purely personal matters, and I do
not state them to influence yonr Totes,
but ,merely to show why I personally
have lost confidence in Kuhio and can
not under any circumstances support
hira. I will vote for Charles A. Rice,
a man whom I know will take care of

After the passage of a governmen

At this nominal expense some tw

The canal has cost the United Btat'
nearly .$400,000,000. That is approx.
