DAILY PACIFIC COMMERCIAL ADVERTISER, JANUARY 2, 1892
Candidates For the Road Board
WILCOX DENIES HA VI KG WRITTEN
THE NEW YORK WORLD
Over one hundred people assembled
at the old Armory on New Year's
Eve to hear Hon. R. V. Wilcox's ac
count of his recent political stumping
tour around Hawaii and Maui. Hon.
J. E. Bush presided.
Hon. D. W. Pua, of the executive
committee, announced the Liberal
party's candidates for the Road Board,
which are Samuel C. Dwight, Samuel
Mahelona and Abraham Fernandez.
The conlirmatiou of the candidates
by the Liberalists was delayed till
they receive from them a public state
ment of their views. S. Kekukahiko
was appointed a committee of one to
inform those gentlemen to appear be
fore the Liberal party.
mV. 1 T ITT -v w i
iue arrival oi i. v. WllCOX was
hailed by the audience with rapturous
cheers. Cries of "Wilcox" from every
part of the hall compelled him to
come forward and address them. He
avoided his usual noisy style of speak
R. W. Wilcox: Dear friends: The
elections are drawing nigh. Political
opponents are now springinc: up
They include the most influential men
which the other side could muster
Our enemies have forwarded forged
letters of a revolutionary character
abroad and they have blamed me for
them. They said that I am guilty of
sending these letters to Mr. Moreno.
I have read these very same letters
months ago in Sau Francisco and
Washington papers. My name was
not attached o them then, but now
see that iu aiue has been attached
Now, can you believe that I wrote
these letters? Several voices : No
Is it not most strange that if the Mar
shal is aware and really believes that
a Hawaiian is engaged in this work
of revolutionizing a monarchy into
republic, is he not in duty bound to
investigate the matter and bring to
light the guilty perpetrators? Surely
this is a conspiracy. 1 admit that Mr
Moreno is my friend. He was a cabi
net minister here in 1880, and he took
me to Italy to be educated. You al
know how Moreno bitterly opposed
the missionary rule. That was the
main reason of the very short dura
tion of his cabinet appointment.
have corresponded with him and still
do. None of those letters published
here are mine. In my own letters to
Mr. Moreno I informed him of mat
ters relating to the ministry and the
Marshal. What is most surprising to
me is the quick dispatch of these let
ters reaching here. The letters ap
peared in the issue (New York World)
of December 11. This is without
doubt the work of an enemy. They
know that I am the nation's leader,
so they put my name under those let
ters to bring the odium of my consti
tuents upon me, and so baffle my
hopes at the coming elections. Did
you ever know me to advocate annex
ation with the United States? What
I have stated in public, and I repeat
itnow,thatif our affairs continue to be
conducted in a base and unsatisfactory
manner as it is at present, its own
rottenness will hasten us to a repub
lic. If such ignorant and incompe
tent men as the Marshal and the Attorney-General
sovereign power, and they encour
aged in their villainous works, then,
without doubt, a republic will surely
appear. It's because or the stencn now
pervading our affairs. It will not
emanate from me. There was a rea
son for the revolution of 1887. Who
were your leaders then? (Several
voices: Kaulukou and Rosa.) What
did they do? (Same voices again: they
simply looked at us.) Therefore they
aided the revolution. Can they
claim to be patriots? The present
Marshal acted as a detective for the
revolutionists during that crisis. All
the private instructions of the King
were exposed by him to the Reform
Party. It was this great service to
the Reform Party that had kept C. B.
Wilson so long in the Water Bureau.
All the other supporters of the King
were dismissed from office; but,
strange to say, a traitorous man still
holds sway. Cheers. The Queen
has declared that this nation is fortu
nate in having such a man as C. B.
Wilson. rCries of: Away with him!
The foreigners are not advocating an
independent government for us. They
favor annexation with the United
States in order to get the two-cent
bounty on sugar. When I was at
Hilo recently a high Government of
ficial declared that he would favor a
candidate who would promote Mott
Smith's treaty scheme. That treaty
virtually means our ceding ?earl
Harbor to the United States, and al
lowing them to erect forts there.
The Queen has signed that treaty, but
the President of the United States has
not signed it yet. Congress is await
ing the approval of our Legislature.
If the candidates of the Reform Party
would all be elected, Puuloa will
surely be ceded to America. Hie
natural results would be that Pearl
City lots will be greatly enhanced in
value. That is their sole ambition,
they are creatures without souls.
MoLy is their ruling motive: they
care not for our independence. VV hat
matter is it to them if you are a 1
driven to the mountains? If you give
Puuloa away that is the first invita
tion to the elephant's nose to come
in and the eagle's claws would follow,
lootiv. vou would be set asicie.

nation. Cheers. I would work to
promote even those who are my most
inveterate foes, if I know thpv
honest in their purposes; but traitors,
they must suffer deserved penalties.
lOheers. Our city officials are not,
awake to their duties. Hawaii is
enjoying a peaceful prosperity under
Mr. Hitchcock. How is the Hon.
Tahitiau creature cast on our shore
from an obscure place? Cheers.
Here Mr. Wilcox desired anvone
in the audience to ask ;lm Questions
relating to the alleged letters, but the
audience demanded of him to relate
to them the storv of his recent noliti-
cal campaign around Maui and Ha
Mr. Wilcox continuing said: A
monarchy is good, if the sovereign is
good, and so is a republic. That is my
sincere belief. I have stated this oft
times before. I detest to see an ignor
ant coachman placed above us. I
cannot tolerate the sight of freaks of
nature. The divine right of kings
was the belief that pervaded the
minds of the people in ages gone by.
We are now in an enlightened age.
The doctrine of the divine right of
kings is just as foolish as shutting
yourself up in your closet and praying
for food. Vou must labor. 1 will now
begin our story : Mr. White and my
self arrived at Kohala on Saturday.
We went to Niulii, and there held a
meeting. The insufficiency of the
notice did not interfere with our ob
taining an enormous crowd. We
addressed the people. Hon. J. K.
Kabookano is the planters' candidate
there. Mr. Kamauoha is our candi
date, and he is very strong there. On
Monday we went to Waimea, and the
following day arrived at Hamakua.
We held a meeting at Waipio. Mr.
Kaunamano represents the planters,
and J. Paakiki the Liberal Party.
They are both good men. The candi
dates at North Hilo are J. Haakimoa
and Jas. Mattoon. At Central Hilo,
Messrs. Kauwila Unea, Koahou, Moss
man and Henry West are the candi
dates. Hon. J. Nawahi has no
opposition at South Hilo. We held a
meeting there, and Mr. White spoke
for two hours to an enthusiastic
audience. Mr. Rycroft will likely be
put up to oppose Mr. Nawahi. The
Reform party are still silent, but yet
they are working secretly. Rev.
Joseph will oppose Hon. Kamai at
Makena. Hon. L. W. P. Kauealii is
sure of election at Wailuku. At
Makawao, Hon. H. P. Baldwin has
put forward Mr. Kaluna to oppose J.
Kamakele. At Lahaina, Hons. W.
White and F. H. Hayselden and J. W.
Kalua are in the field. Our foreign
friends have said that they would
give the preference of election to
office to competent Hawaiians. We
have plenty of them now, but still
they are not appointed. Do not
believe in that idle talk, they
only say that to catch your
votes. They do not love Hawaii.
I can bring forward twenty-five Ha
waiian scholars against the same
number of haole government officials.
The native boys can discount them in
mathematics, I am sure of that. I
am not bitterly opposed to haoles.
There are many respectable foreign
ers of good intentions. And now
comes an ignorant plasterer, Mr.
Bowler and wants to become a No
ble! We are not diffident in the
number of educated Hawaiians. I
want to raise up "na haole maikai,"
(good foreigners,), but not illiterate
Hon. Jos. Nawahi: We want
justice to prevail. Those who are
against us are aversed to it. Any
Hawaiian who does not want his
race to be raised should have a mill
stone around his neck and thrown
into the sea. If I shall be elected at
the coming elections, I shall then ar
rive at my twentieth year in the leg
islature. The legislature has become
my schoolhouse. My past record in
the house is unblemished,and you are
witnesses to it . If you trust me, re
