amazing exhibition of incompetence
even in a new member, that he spoiled
the chance to pass the Hawaiian coin

March and he is now running for a
third term. It was in the second, not
the first term, that his fourteen con

when, with a billion dollars in course
of public distribution, he was so busy
trying to get through private franchise
bills for his friends that ne aia nui ob

the franchise bills in the bargain.
It is unsafe to say that Wilcox had
no chance. He had every chance if we
may believe his letters home and the
insertions of his private newspaper.

great discussion as to what shall be

has become a Republican.
some of the members, such as BiPi-

tire from politics and not even vote
again. Others felt that they could not
take the name Republican while the
sentiment of the majority was that
more time was needed. Accordingly
adjournment was taken until this even
