YeHerday's Republican contains an
Indecent attack upon Judge Perry, as
full of false statements and malice as
It Is of paragraphs.

remotest ground for stating that he,

The Markham Incident Is typical of
the' gang making up the Independent
ledrhlp. An Irresponsible combina
tion, swayed by the emotions of the
hour,' they have not the remotest Idea
of representation In their organization.
The way In wftkih-men are fired Into
and fired out of their parry arid ticket,
reminds one of the French Revolution,
where the despot ot yesterday was the
victim of to-day. And these are the
men who claim the right to control the
destinies of Hawaii!
Like the flowers of spring, the Frank
Waterhouse Company Is again with us,
with a new line of steamers between
Seattle and Honolulu. This time there
Is a variation in the program however,
as the return trip will be to San Fran
cisco, and thence to Seattle. The four
steamers proposed are the Centennial,
Charles Nelson, Jno. S. Kimball and
Santa Anna. As these steamers are not
the equal in slse or speed with the new
Oceanic, or Pacific Mail boats, it la to
be hoped that they will charge less
than $75 passage money between the
Coast and the Islands. There Is a de
mand for such a service which these
boats should fill.
Every resident of Hawaii has the ut
most Interest in the success of the
wireless telegraphy experiment now
going on here. The operations of the
Marconi expert recently arrived will
be followed with great Interest.
There does not seem to be any reason
wny success snnum noi De acnieveo.
Recent accounts of wireless telegraphy
communication across the British
Channel tell of a message being a evi
dently read at a station eighty miles up
the, English coast. Wireless telephony
from the main land to a light house
three miles from shore is now In suc
cessful operation In Ireland; and a
young English Inventor has succeeded
In steering a submarine torpedo ' by
electric energy known as "Hertzian
waves." without direct connection be
tween the torpedo and the operator,
THE GOVERNOR'S DECISION.
The decision by Governor Dole to
take the responsibility of advising the
use of more compartments for voting
In the congested precincts, will be a
great relief to the public mind. It has
been with a considerable degree of ap
prehension that the community has
looked forward to the attempt to do the
Impossible for 911 voters to select
fourteen names out of forty-three, on
four separate ballots In 540 minutes.
Rumors of strife and force at these pre
cincts have been in constant circula
tion. It Is a condition and not a theory
which faces the community, and the
' position taken by the Governor Is the
strong one and the right one.
The main object of the election Jaw Is
to secure a full and free ballot by all
of the legally qualified voters. An un
foreseen contingency has arisen which
threatens to disfranchise hundreds of
voters and create a disturbance of the
peace as well, unless some relief can be
had. Even though only three polling
booths are provided for by law, this is
slirply a detail In the general provi
sions for holding the election, and It Is
better to dlsn-gard a detail of this kind,
whlc,h can harm no one, than to dis
franchise hundreds of men and provoke
an almost certain fight.
The Irregularity Is one which appeals
to the common sense of the citizen, and
we believe It will appeal to the common
snse of the legislature, which will
haye the final decision of the question.
Even though the legislature should
take the extreme position that the Ir
regularity vitiated the election. It
would be better that the vote of these
precincts should be thrown out In this
manner, than that It should be Imper
fectly presented with a fist fight accompaniment.
Eg- THE DANGER OF SCRATCHING.
The Advertiser called attention last Friday, to the advisability of voting
the straight Republican ticket. It was pointed out that a ticket as a pre
requisite tg success must be representative In race as well as ln,character;
that the native Hawaiians in the party were among the most active and
earnest of the party workers; that good faith and decency required that the
white members of the party should give as well as take, and that It were
better for the full ticket to go. down In. honorable defeat, rather than that
the white members should, be , elected and the native members defeated
through treacherous scratching. .
The theory of some of the would-be scratchers is that by scratching cerr
tain names off the Republican ticket and adding certain "best' men" from
other tickets, those who are scratched will be injured, but tbe remaining
members will not be affected. This Is an error. Every name scratched from
the Republican ticket Injures the chances of election not only of -those
scratched, but of every other man on the ticket . j
For example: .U:..v- .. . , -
.There Is good reason to believe that more-rConslderaWy morerrthan one
third of the voters of Oahu are Republicans, tt is useless to under rate the
strength of our opponents however. . .' '
; There are, in round numbers, 5,800 voters on Oahu. Assuming by way of
Illustration,' tbat of' these 2.000 are Republicans, 1.900 Democrats, and 1,900
Independents, It Is self-evident that if all the Republicans vote the straight
ticket will be elected. ,
Imagine now that so-called "Independent Republicans" indulge In scratch
ing the ticket In favor of the "best men" on other tickets. There ls.no
agrwment as to whom should be scratched. Some will drop one and some
another.' and between the whole of them, the general average of the whole
ticket will be lowered. It must be remembered that two can play at the
game of scratch. While Mr. Fred Macfarlane and Mr. W. M. Giffard have
announced their Intention of voting for the "best men," they probably have
not thought that the Jaborers in their employ have opinions of their own, and
that their opinions as to who the "best men" are will probably differ radl
cally from those of their employers. i
If, In the example given above, 200 Republicans should scratch the tick
et, the average received by the Repub llcan ticket will be reduced to below
1900. If these 200 votes are given to Democratic candidates, the Democratic
ticket will poll 2100 votes, and be elected. If given to the Independents, that
ticket will be elected; while if they are divided between the two parties, the
Republican ticket would still be defeated. :
Again, if the Scratching voter' does not think Mr. B, a Republican candi
date, one of the "best men." and vote for Mr. C on the Democratic ticket
Instead,' it does not follow that C will be elected. It may turn out that C.
has been defeated, and that D of the' Independents has beaten- B of the Re
publican ticket by one vote. As between the Republican and the Independent
he would have much preferred the former, but unintentionally, by voting for
the Democrat the scratching voter has elected the Independent.
Every man who deems that Republican success or Independent defeat
is essential or beneficial to the interests of himself or the Hawaiian Islands,
is w holly' unsafe in voting anything but the straight Republican ticket. To
such a man, we say, not only vote it yourself, but urge your nelghbpr, to
vote It; speak to your employes and associates, and explain how scratching
any Republican name may defeat the whole ticket.
The "best men from each ticket" theory is a snare and a delusion. It is
to-day the greatest danger that confronts the Republican party of Hawaii.
This election is a tug-of-war, with a walkover for no one. A strong pull and
a pull all together is what' gives strength to a team'or a party.
The Issues of this campaign are so serious that we can afford to take
chances. The straight ticket gives the chief assurance of success. '

THE MERCHANTS' APPEAL
The appeal sent out by the leading,
mercantile houses of Honolulu to those
who do business with them, published
herewith, la one of the strongest polit
ical documents which has appeared
during the campaign. There Is no sug
gestion of coercion. It Is a calm but
forcible, argument,' showing why, from
a nort-polltlcal, plain business stand
point. It will be disastrous to the busi
ness and laboring Interest of Hawaii
If Wilcox and the Independents are
elected. " ""' ; .. ...
It will be noted that the appeal Is
signed by both those of Republican and
Democratic ' sympathies, . and that it
does not suggest that any man vote
either the Democratic or Republican
ticket. This choice I left wide open to
The only point made Is, that In the
mutual Interest of all concerned, the
government should be placed In the
hands of those of character and re
sponsibility, and that the Independents
are not of this kind.
It is so easy to conjure up a stiletto
and the Mafia whenever an Italian is
mentioned, that the sensational stories
concerning the character of the Italian
laborers who were on their way to Ha
waii from New Orleans, and who re
fused to come further after arriving In
San Francisco, may be taken with a
grain of salt. There is certainly no
ground for attacking the motives of
the planters who were trying to bring
A serious demand for labor exists
here, which the planters In good faith
and at heavy expense are endeavoring
to supply with labor from the United
States. It is all well enough to say that
Norwegian, German, or other national
ities are better, but It Is a case of first
catch your hare and then cook him. In
Louisiana, where the opportunities are
far better for securing labor than In
Hawaii, the only nationality whose
people the sugar planters have been
able to secure In any numbers is Ita
lian, and they have given good satis
faction. It is unreasonable to shut off the only
heretofore available . supply of labor
necessary to the existence of the plan
tations and then carp and gibe at every
effort that Is made to secure others.
There is one legitimate ground of ob
jection to the Immigrants who were left
in Kan Francisco, however, and that is
that they were unaccompanied by their
families. The overwhelming majority
of males over females already here
amounts to a serious menace. More
over In the interests of the planters
themselves, the Immigration of single
men should not be encouraged or sanc
tioned. A single man, in a strange
country, with no home lies or comforts,
is restless and dissatisfied, and sooner
or later he will quit and move on, leav
ing the planter In the lurch for labor
and out the cost of the laborer's pas
sage; while a man with a family is
more likely to be a quiet, steady man;
he Is better contented with his family
about him and the comforts of home.
while the family Is likewise an anchor
and the center of a fresh supply of la
bor, for even a child can water cane
and do light Jobs. The sooner the im
migration of single male labor is stop
ped, the better for all concerned.
