the meeting under a complete misappre

THINK KUHIO IS FAILING
Secretary Is Not Ambitious, but
His Friends Are Desirous of
Working for Him.
There is a strong possibility that,
unless he himself absolutely forbids,
the name of E. A. Mott-Smith may be
presented to the territorial convention
for nomination for delegate to congress
to succeed Kuhio, in case it becomes
apparent that Kuhio either can not or
will not be nominated or cau not be
elected if he is nominated.
It is well known that Mr. Mott-Smith
has no desire for the honor that may
be thrust upon him. He would prefer
to stay at home where his chief inter
ests lie. In fact, when the matter was
tentatively broached to him yesterday,
he stated emphatically that he had no
desire to go to Washington as delegate.
Put it often happens in politics that
a man. especially if he be a good and
desirable man, is called upon to sacri
fice his personal wishes to the good of
his party and the community.
It is by no means certain n yet that
Kuhio will retire from the race. Put
there ij a strong possibility that he
may. Political reasons may demand
t ho nomination of another candidate.
Kuhio "s health, it is well known, is not
good. Two or three years ago he talked
of getting out and leaving the position
open to someone else, and it may be
that when he returns to Hawaii this
desire will make itself felt again.
Furthermore, there are those who
think that Cupid is by no means as
strong politically as he was a few years
ago. His curious attitude on the liquor
question has, it is believed, materially
weakened lis position with the voters.
Some of the liquor faction and also
some who profess the prohibition faith
contend that Cupid has not kept faith
with either party; that he has been
trying to carry water on both .shoulders
and has slopped a good deal of it onto
the political ground. Neither prohibi
tionists nor a ntis seem to know just
where to place the delegate, and as he
probably will not arrive at Honolulu
until after the plebiscite, it is not im
probable that his position may never be
If. as is contended by some, Cupid's
sudden attack of ill-health and his con
sequent decision to sail on the Hawaii,
which will probably not reach here until
after the vote has 'been taken, are due
to an attempt to square himself with
the liquor interests. Kuhio has certain
ly failed in his object. For, of course,
he arouse. t the enmity of the liquor
people early in the game when he al
lowed his name to he used on the Com
mittee of One Hundred. And by vacil
lating and writing foggy sentiments in

PINCHOT DEFENDS ROOSEVELT
AGAINST CANNON'S WORDS
KANSAS CITY, July 10. Speaker
Cannon and CifTord Pitichot, who were
guests at a banquet here last night, en
gaged in an ex remporaneous debate over
the question of the conservation of
natural resources. The occasion was a
meeting of the Knife and Fork ' 1 it ; .

Speaker Cannon, who was first called

$37.50 Each Per Grade of Study,
to Advance Pupils of
It costs the Territory approximately
$37.50 to put a pupil through one grade
of school, according to estimates that
have been made by the board of educa
tion. During the school year of 1 VM); li l u
there were in fifty-eight schools of the
Territory 4207 promotions. These pro
motions, therefore, represent an in
crease in efficiency, based on the fore
going figures, of $l.TT,52.oO a year.
In the fifty-eight schools in 1 there
were 14,171 pupils, divided up as fol
lows: Eighth grade. 147; seventh, 242-,
sixth, 39SC fifth. 722; fourth. 1.1M;
third, ISI'3; second. 2P4; first. 2!:M;
receiving. 4.1 7o.
I n 1!!0 the numbers in each grade
are as follows:
Eighth. 159; seventh. 27; sixth. 4o3;
fitth, s;.-,; fourth. P'.Jni; third. 232' i;
second. 240; first. 34."4; nce:ing.
In eery grade, therefore, except the
second and receiving grade, there h .s
been a very material increase in the
number of pupils. Put the falling oif
in the receiving grade is ne'tb- one
thousand, so the to'al ir.t'f i-e :ii
number of pupils this year ver th,
number last yen is 2 1.

respect for his superior officers.
A Spanish War Hero.
Major-General Elliott, the command
ant of the Marine Corps, is one of the
heroes of the Spanish War, having been
advanced in grade because of conspicu
ous service. A native of Alabama, he
was appointed to the Marine Corps from
New York in October, 1870, reaching
the grade of colonel in 1903. He was
stationed at the marine barracks at
Norfolk, after serving fourteen years
at sea, in 19oo. being later in command
of the marine barracks in Washington.
He was appointed to the command of
the corpg in 1903, succeeding Major
General Ileywood, with the rank of
