liAILY PACIFIC COMMERCIAL ADVERTISER, DECEMBER 14, 1891.
Candidates for the Coming Struggle
Announced at Faturday's
The National Liberal Party held a
meeting at the old Armory on Queen
street on Saturday night. Hon. J. E.
Bush presided. The attendance was
not up to. the mark, the reason being,
as the President explained, that it
was not publicly announced. Mr.
Wilcox and himself had made a tour
of Koolau, and they did not expect to
get back in Honolulu to hold the
The minutes of the previous meet
ing were read by the Secretary and
The standing committee recom
mended that a regular night for
weekly meetings should be decided
upon, and Thursday night was the
choice of all, Saturday night being a
busy night for many in visiting sa
loons, and they may come to the
meetings in an intoxicated state. The
same committee also recommended
that political stump orators be sent to
the different islands to enlighten the
country people as to the principles of
the National .Liberal Party. Hons.
R. W. Wilcox and Wm. White, who
have already gone on that mission,
were chosen, their traveling expenses
to be defrayed by the Liberalists at
The Executive Committee recom
mended that the question of the elee
tion of the new Road Board be dis
cussed by the meeting.
Treasurer C. B. Maile reported
that the organization had received
$30 from collections, and that amount
had all been expended to meet the
necessary expenses of tne Hui.
The consideration of the Itoad
Board was again introduced.
The President rising to explain as
follows: Our platform has been great
Jy objected to by many because it
favored the election by the people of
civil officers. We are all cognizant of
the fact that heads of bureaus persist
In employing corrupt subordinates,
because of friendship, relationship,
etc. If Government onicers are elect
ed by the people, " hoopilimeaai "
(sycophancy) will no longer be a road
to office. Corruption would be re
duced in a great measure. Many say
mat una ngnt ougnt not to be vested
in the people. It is the corrupt
officials who are making this vain
cry for fear of their positions. They
are rogues; do not believe them. The
new platform of the Hui Kalaiaina
has been severely ridiculed, because
it is the product of ignorance. Tbe
members were so perfectly ashamed
of it that it was referred to a special
committee for revision.
It was then moved and carried that
the consideration of the Road Board
be the order of the evening.
Hon. Jos. Nawahi said the com
ing election is full of importance. We
are to vote, for nobles, representa
tives, and road boards on that day.
The election of the road board by the
feople is a new creation bv theLeg
slature of 1S90. Its importance can
not be belittled. They are to appoint
the road supervisor. The Minister of
the Interior can then no longer keep
u special favorite against the people's
clamor to remove him. Election of
civil officers is a republican idea, but
that will not make us a republic. We
must not denounce it because it is
the practice in the Republic of Amer
ica. The great and enlightened Re
public of America did not give us the
secret ballot system. We borrowed
that excellent system from Australia.
The Liberal Party are working for
your welfare, therefore do not cast
your vote for the Reform Party. Not
a single vote you expect from that
J. Kekukaiiiko moved that the
executive committee report their
nominees for the road board.
Hon. D. W. Pua, of the executive
committee, announced that they
were prepared to place their names
before the meeting.
J. Kaau thought they must go
slow, another time would do to an
nounce those names. The other
parties have not made known
their candidates, and it is not proper
that our candidates should be made
J. Kekukaiiiko thought the time
had come. "Procrastination is the
thief of time" was his motto.
The nomination of the road board
was then postponed till the nomin
ating convention should sit.
The President then vacated the
chair entrusting its charge to the
Vice President, Mr.. Nawahi, while
he related the story of their
recent political tour around this
island. Mr. Bush began thus : Hons.
Robt. W. Wilcox, Wm. H. Cum-
miegs and myself started on a tour of
this, island the early part of this
week.- Our intention at. first was
only.; to' visit the people at their
homes, and not hold meetings ; but,
rinding .the. people enthusiastic in
their attentions towards us, we de
cided -to hold meetings and make
speeches. False rumors were circu
lated in this city that our visit did
not meet with success. That was due
to the fact that we made a flying visit
and only stopped at the principal
places where we thought it prudent
to hold meetings. President Kahoo
nei, of the Hui Kalaiaina. invited mo
to visit Koolau ; but, like a rogue of
tne deepest dye, he forwarded mes
sages to his right-hand supporter at
Kaneohe to make our visit anything
but favorable. That man informed
me of it, but he had the manhood
enough not to follow Mr. tvahoonei's
mandate. A voice : Kahoonei is a
goat. The hearty welcome we re
ceived at Kaneohe assured me of my
success at the coming elections. I
am entertaining hopes of my victory,
and no power on earth will alter it.
At Heeia we met with the same
favorable results. 41 We are a unit in
your favor," they said ; "our priests
do not interfere in our politics." Mr.
Kaulukou is not popular down there ;
the country people know that he is
only assuming false colors when he
tells them that he loves th sovereign.
How can he sincerely love a queen
who had dismissed him from her
Privy Council of State ? Impossible.
A villain assumes a smiling face
when his heart is far away. Mr.
Wilcox has appeared, and no one can
extinguish his light. His influence
is universal, and Koolau has felt it.
So"; my. burden is lightened. I can
remain in Honolulu to aid my party,
and there is no necessity for my con
stant presence at Koolau. The people
down there remain immovable in my
favor, and I am confident in their
faithfulness to our cause. At Laie,
the Mormon Settlement, Hon. Cecil ;
Brown had flattered the people by
telling them of the noble work he did
for them in the Legislature. He was
instrumental in having a bill passed
allowing the native Mormons to go
and make their home at Salt Lake
City. I would ask you whether that
was something to boast of. Are we
blind to the fact that the natives who
went to Salt Lake City have suffered
great miseries and hardships ac
cording to their own testimony?
Do you call that a blessing? People
at Kahana and Hauula will not vote
for him. He has three lunus at the
latter place and probably they will be
the only ones to vote for him there.
They made complaints to me concern
ing" Mr. Brown. We received a
hearty reception at the Mormon set
tlement, We went to the meeting
house, intending to held meetings
there. We found the Mormon elders
in the house instructing the children
in the science of hula dancing. The
elders do not consider the hula an
immoral practice; on the contrary,
they encourage it. I spoke approv
ingly to the elders of the sight I wit
nessed. I did not flatter the elders,
for I thought it was really proper to
teach hula in public places, and not
in secret dens. . Dancing is not con
sidered improper. I asked the elders
to allow us to address the people, and
they graciously granted our request.
I began my address by commending
their hula school. Hula is very soci
able if carried on publicly, and im
moralities would not be practiced.
The people were somewhat indiffer
ent at first, but they became softened
in the end. Mr Wilcox likewise ad
dressed the meeting. His speech was
remarkable for the dignity of its tone.
He avoided personalities. 'It was the
most sensible address he had ever
given. I appreciated it. On Thurs
day, we came to Waialua. The people
at first hesitated to believe us. They
said that I was the one who recom
mended them to vote for Hon. Antone
Rosa last legislature, and he had be
trayed them. But on obtaining
proper information from us, they
changed their minds and lent us at
tentive ears. They wanted Mr. Wil
cox, the people's idol, to be their can
didate, and he had given his assent
to their call. We then hastened to
get to Honolulu, as Mr. Wilcox was
going to Hawaii. Mr. Wilcox will
fight our cause on Hawaii, and I will
work here. Mr. Wilcox will appoint
the best men possible to be our can
didateson Hawaii; we trust that to
his intelligence; he is a
very good judge of human
nature. He will not place
useless weak-minded men on the
ticket. We thank our stars that Mr.
Wilcox has arisen to help our cause.
He has no self interest, he cares for
the common good of all. He has
given his life and strength for us. Is
it not most strange that, at a time
when we needed a courageous man
to come to our aid, Mr. Wilcox was
given to us? He comes at a most
proper time. We need a brave sol
dier to bring us out of our present
humbled state. Mr. Wilcox possesses
all the necessary requisites for his
calling, and we hope for salvation
through him. The Hawaiians were
once noted for bravery, but to-day
they are cowed down. The fire of
bravery is not altogether extinguish
ed in their hearts, however, they
only need a little stimulus to awaken
their latent and inherent bravery.
Had not the divine power given us
Mr. Wilcox, at this most critical
time, our cause would be forever lost,
and we burled in oblivion. Ap
plause. I do not hesitate in assur
ing you that his candidates on Ha
waii will all be elected. He went
with a cheerful heart, money had he
none, but with the people's love in
his purse, he will fear no evil. He
will make G. B. Kamauoha our can
didate at Kohala. Hon. J. K. Ka
hookano will not be elected there, for
ho had disgusted his constituents by
voting against the new constitution
act. Either J. K. Kaunamano or
Mr. Paakiki will be our candidate at
Hamakua. D. H. Nahinu will run
for us at Kona, Hon. Jos. Nawahi,
H. Kauwila Unea, and Henry West
will be our candidates at South,
North, and Central Hilo respectively.
D. Kapahu will run at Kau, Hon. W.
White for Lahaina, Hon. L. W. P.
Kanealii for Wailuku, J. Kamakele
for Makawao, Hon. Kamai for Hana,
and J . Nakaleka, Sr., for Molokai.
Myself for Koolau and Hon. Robt.
W. Wilcox for Waialua.
The announcement received the
hearty approval of all present.
I have a word to say against the atti
tude of the Queen against her people.
We want her to be above the people,
keep her record free from political
stains. We shall then respect her.
We all know how she worked during
the recent firemen's election for Chief
Engineer. She favored the Reform
Party candidate, Mr. Root. More. Mr.
Chas. B. Wilson influenced her to
favor Mr. More, and Mr. Wilson, we
all know, is the Queen's mouthpiece
and special adviser. It offends me to
the soul to see such condescension.
Those who assist our Queen in this
outrageous work are disloyal and
should be regarded as traitors. Her
real loyal subjects are those who
have independence and manhood
enough to tell her to cease doing so.
Some rascals have misrepresented
Mr. Wilcox's utterances concerning
the republican movement. What he
actually said was that if our Queen
continued being led by unprincipled
advisers, and the state of affairs con
tinued from bad to worse, it were
better for us to be under a republican
lorm 01 government. But he does
not hope that will ever come to pass.
There is no necessity for it if our Gov
ernment is conducted rightly. God
made Adam first. He was a man.
The first idea of rulers were the
judges. Kings were later creations,
and are a human institution. There
fore, man the people is supreme.
Kings can be abolished. Mr. Glad
stone is my guide, and his courageous
remark to the Queen of England that
he represented the people, compelled
her to respect the wishes of the peo
ple. If you do not vote for our party,
and the other party be victorious,
laws will be made that will bind
you to the ground for ever, with no
more hope to rise again.
The meeting adjourned at a late
NOT in it.
He loved her with a love intense,
But she laced herself so tight
That when he asked her for her
'Twas squeezed clear "out of sight."
You want to touch the soul of
some bright particular sweet
young lady did you say?
That's right young man !
Send her a copy of the "Vistas
of Hawaii'' and she will be in a
melting mood the next time you
meet her. They are iust too
pretty for anything.
The Pacific Hardware Co. will
help you out with this scheme.
