It was noticeable that many of tho

Mr. Smith charged the local Demo
cnits with still being held by the hide
bound traditions of their party, by its
lack of progress venese, and with
being unable to take a clear position
to outline a policy to lay before the
voters. He said they were strangely
silent on most of the important sub
jects. '
There was no pledge thnt their can
didates, he said, will do anything to
support the army or navy, or that they
would legislate in Hawaii for any
measure thnt would in any way con
tribute to the support of the boys of
Hnwuii now serving in the army. Mr.
Smith 'a statements, which may stand
as an analysis of the aims and objects
of the entire list of candidates of the
Republican party, was aa follows:
"The Republican party in Hawaii
comes before you tonight and asks
your support of its principles and ran
didates in this, the greatest year in the
history of the Nation.
"The party asks your support of its

"The Republican party first proposed

for anv state or territory to waste

auitStther representing the dominions
were present. The conference is a de
liberaiive body which reports its de
cisions to the cabinet, a more executive
organization. Questions of imperial
policy were discussed at the meetings
which were regarded of unusual iiuthori
ty because of the prominence of the
Methods Considered
A special committee of the conference
was appointed to consider the ra-sl
met lions by which essential raw mnt.e
rials mav be controlled, ami Honar Law,
I'haneelfor of the Kxcheipier, has in
formed Parliament that arrangements
being made with the dominion represeu
tatives for the control of materials are
to be the basis for beginning negotia
tiens with other countries.
Close imperial cooperation in matters
of 'economic policy is favored by the
dominion representatives, judging from
their utterancs, Mr. Kennedy reports.
He adds that Australia and New Zea
land are interested in retaining the
German colonies in the Pacific and in
combatting German trade after the war
The dominions were asked to pass
law similar to the Hritish nun ferrous
metal industries set, which makes it
necessary to obtain licenses to trade in
metals. Kiich legislation is designed to
free the Hritish Kmpire from depen
dence on German controlled organize
Other Question
Another iiupoitsnt resolution adopted
bv the conference is understood to have
asked the dominions to co operate with
tht; imperial government in protecting
the developing British dye industry.
The conference also considered quest
ions relating to the development of
interempire trade, such us transport,
new-s service, parcel post, statistics and
emigration. Improved steamship con
ne"tion between Great Britiau and tho
dominions waa favored, also as more
comprehensive news service at cheaper
cable tolls and coming from a strictly
Hritish source, A statistical bureau
was proposed for London, which would
compile and transmit information from
different parts of the empire. Control
of imigrntion after the war also was dis
Although the dominion representa
fives desire immediate consideration of
the important questions relating to the
close co-operation of different parts of
the empire, Mr. Keunedy points out that
it is not certain that the Hritish govern
j ment tie prepared to perfect finally a
I program a future economic policydur
, ing the war. He says Mr Law regards
I this problem one for after wnr.
; Ts-IlT Matters
None of the meetings openly discuss
' ed u perferenee tariff, according to Mr.
Kennedy. ruch a policy is favored by
ninny, but the tariff question is yet nn
; issue in the I'nited Kjiigdom on which
1 tiere is not muny unity of opinion.
The old free trade sentiment iu the lib
eral parly is evidently unchanged and
j the Labor party is seemingly opposed
i of any policy which would affect cheap
', row materials. The latter also has coin
, nutted itself to resolutions favoring an
I open door economic policy utter the wat
its the best way to gutiriiiiteeiug future

negligence in the management of th Katihi receiving station for

,rouse the board of health authorities to the situation, but has not
'icen given the serious attention she believes the nature of her com
plaints justify, and from these officials she turns to the public at
large. !f -
She charges, among other things, that the supervision over the
tatum is so lax that at least one national guardsman was permitted
it visit the place in uniform and stay for some time in the rooms of
onic of the lepers, ttien return to his post without any effort being
nade to fumigate or disinfect his uniform or hi.j hands.
She charges that pigs from the station pen, fed upon the scraps
nun the lepers' table, are being sold throughout the city, although
he pigs are supposed to be raised to provide meat for the station.
These pigs are sold in the city without authority and the money
not being made a government
she charges that ukuleles and guitars
ire being made by the station attend
ants, without the least effort being
nade to prevent them being handled
by the patients, and tire then sold at
liirge in the city.
she charges that the delivery boys
from the Honolulu stores and provi
sion houses are permitted to accept
money from the patieats directly and
without sterilisation and that this
money goes into the various city tills
and is handled in the ordinary course
n' business as enange. These delivery
hoys handle the leper' money and
then continue their rounds, delivering
groceries and meats to city customer.
Hhe charges thnt when the educated
ones' among the patient protest against
this disregard of the health of the
public generally or enter any protest
against any other of the various abuses
'lint have crept in, they are threatened
with reprisal by the caretaker and his
assistants and are warned that they
will be sent to Kalaupapa by the first
boat if ever detected making com
Won't Obey Orders
She charges that the caretaker and
Vis assistants refuse to carry out the
instructions of the trained nurse at
the station in the matter of special
diets for patients under treatment, thus
retarding the work of the physician
ind hindering the prospect of curea.
Because of the inability to secure any
sort of intelligent cooperation in her
work, the trained nurse now at the
station is resigning.
Mrs. Macfarlane, who has been enre-
fully investigating complaints for the
uist several montlis, has been more or
'ess evasively treated by the board of
health, officials, while certain of .the
lesser employes by whom she had stated
she could prove certain of these charges
ii.l even graver ones have been dis
missed from the employment of the
board of health before she could call
upon them.
Some of the mUers in her hands
have been laid directlv before Governor
McCnrthv, who, Mrs. Macfarlane states,
is showing n sympathetic interest and
"oinises nction. Other matters she de
sirci to bring directly to the attention
f the public, both for the sake of

lisesises by the very men who are be

Demand Public Meeting
In a letter to The Advertiser, Mrs.
M :ic f a rla ne says:
I'M it or Advertiser Not being a He
"ihlienn. nor Deinoernt, nor suffragette,
1 fell that I can speak frcelv und with
out tear of misunderstanding as to
motives. At this critical time of poli
tics, the matters hereafter referred to
would be good subjects for all poli
ticians who desire to do the best to
vnrd their country and their fellow
beings to take up for investigation nnd
u demand a public meetinrj of the
bonrd of health at the Ralihi Receiving
station for lepers. As what I have to
speak of concerns the public, such u
meeting should be public.
The isolation of the inmates of the
Kalihi and Molnkni settlements, and
the rules and regulations which hem
Mu m in being so rigid, abuses of au
thority accumulate, and attempts to
correct these abuses are causes for the
' ni nspoitat ion of the. objectors from
Honolulu to Kalnupupa. This impels
me to take this means of reaching the
