MeCandless in order that he might gratify the curiosity of the people of the city concerning some ot his views and offer is again made and by way of assistance we would suggest that Me Candless give the people the answers to the following: Tell us, Mr. MeCandless: Why do you want to work for the passage of a law that would prevent every Punchbowl Portuguese from having a preference right to the home he has built? What have you got against the Punchbowl Portuguese? Why have you in practically every one of your speeches to the Hawaiians referred to "the failure" of Kuhio to secure the passage of an act of congress to secure indemnity for the former Queen? Do you not know that "the matter lias always been before can no more make the law say one thing when it says another thnn the Pre-i-Jent hjinsolf con? Do you not know that the matter was argued at length "before the court of claims this year, by the Queen's attorney, and that Kuhio as Delegate Lad nothing whatever to do with, it? What reason, have you iot promising to secure indemnity for the Have you any Wawnf Why did you wtint to sell all the public land of the Territory to the Corporations in 1905, because they were, as you said, only bringing in a little money and cost so much to manage, when you want now to sell none to the corporations, although the expenses of the land commissioner's office is greater now than everl What is the fundamental reason for this great change in i your opinions! . ' Why do you advocate k taxation system that will beat hardest on the Industrious man and allow the lazy landowner or the owner of great untilled tracts to escape with few taxes? Is it because you own more land yourself than you want to work or can lease? Is it true that you have decided to spend up to sixty thousand dollars in this campaign, thirty thousand of it to be spent on the day of election "hiring" a thousand runners? These are some of the questions the voters would like answered and The Advertiser columns are open, free of charge, for any replies to them Mr. Me Candless may choose to make. ,g WHITE PLAGUE AND POLITICS. Hawaiians might very well afford to study the registration figures when they are given out. The preliminary figures tell of marked increases in the number of voters in the fourth and fifth districts, with a falling off in the number from the first, sescond, and sixth, and a very large falling off in the third. The totals for Hawaiians and others are not yet announced, but the indications are that it will be seen that the Hawaiian vote this election will be considerably smaller than ever before, with the white vote appreciably larger. If the Hawaiians will take the figures when they come out and compare them with the figures issued by the board of health, the reason will be plain for the disappearing Hawaiian majority. With ghastly regularity the board of health issues its statistics, twice a month announcing the terrible ravages that tuberculosis is making among the aborigines of these Islands. What is possible is being done by the antituberculosis workers to stem the tide of the white death, but practically nothing can be done unless the Hawaiians them selves awaken to the truth of the situation and help themselves. This is not a matter of politics; it is a matter of the life or the death of a people. It is not only extremely silly but most tactless for a supposedly Republican paper in this city to continue to talk of any attempted coercion of Democratic candidates to foree them off the Democratic ticket. Both men discussed in that connection have stated that no coercion in the least has been attempted; and the Republican leaders who have talked about the matter at all deny that there has been any coercion attempted. The only coercion talkers are the silly twaddlers who think that by stirring up trouble in their own way they are hurting The Advertiser in the eyes of the Republicans. In the cases of McCIellan and Petrie, no coercion should be needed, even if there were any intention of attempting it. Both men are running on a platform that if suc cessful would materially injure the corporations employing them. If they cannot see for themselves that their backing of MeCandless is to their own disadvantage, there is no use talking about it. Jf they cannot see for them selves that they cannot well work against the interests of Hawaii and continue to be regarded as level-headed business men, then no amount of reasoning can show them. Certainly they cannot be made to retire from the ticket; no one ever suggested that they could, but they would be adding to the reputation they have for level-headedness if they would get off on their own account. MeCandless will think that another Portuguese revolution has broken out, when he strikes Punchbowl. His attempt to deprive the Portuguese there of their right to buy homes for themselves has failed to make a hit. .- " L. L. MeCandless will be back from Hawaii today. Probably R. H. Trent will then be able to announce how he stands in the matter of immigration. REVOLUTIONISTS IT SURPRISES PORTUGAL (Continued from Page One.) gan, at that time announced in its col umns that, although inclined to Vie lib eral, the government was prepared to crush mercilessly any revolt. How empty were those words was shown yes terdav when the king himself was im prisoned, the palace captured and t"ie city taken by the revolutionists with the aid of their comrades aboard men-of-war in the river. Republican Sentiment. At the List elections, late in Au gut, the republican element made a greater stride than at any previous election, placing sixteen members in the house of representatives. While the government had a great majority, the republicans were greatly encouraged by this advance in influence and their success added thousands to their secret cai;so of revolution.

Mahuka site is too small as thev sav." Mr. Spreckels heard of the Times disaster while at sea and was greatly shocked. The Times' attacks on him during the graft trials in San Francisco brought that paper more or less into intimate association with him even if the relations were not cordial and the destruction of its buddings was on that account the more felt. LOCAL ARTISTS WIN APPLAUSE The IPrzer-Caceres recital, given in the ballroom of the Young Hotel last evening was more of a success, artis tically and otherwise, than has been the general musieal evening in Hono lulu. Both young artists received un stinted applause and 'both had to re spond to repeated encores. The room was .comfortably filled with pleased listeners, many of those present being from the various army posts of the is land. It is some time since Honolulans have had an opportunity of hearing Mrs. Herzer, and her voice appears to have rounded out and acquired additional volume. She has, in addition to her musical talent, a most pleasing plat- i torm manner, and her appreciation ot the applause that followed eaeh one of her numbers was shown in her frank I smiles of pleasure.

FIFTH DISTRICT AHEAD YET Chillingworth Expects Oahu to Have Seven Thousand Votes This Time. The registration this year promises to be greater than ever before, at least as regards the two districts on Oahu. At six o'clock last night there were eleven more names on the register than were registered for the fourth and fifth district together at the last elections. The total register for the fourth dis trict last night at six was 3171 and for the fifth district, 3267, placing the fifth in the lead. At that time there were a great many in the registration roam on Alakea waiting their turn to become voters in the November elections and there are still four more days to ome. The total registration at present, taken at the same time as the alove figures, is 643S, in contrast to 6427. which re-presents the total registration two years ago. , Chairman 8. F. Chillingworth of the registration board stated last night that he expects the registration for these two districts to eocceed seven thou sand this year. The other counties have not been heard from and it is riot yet known whether the good work is being kept up there or not. FRUIT PACKING KING IS HERE Reported That Bentley Seeks Consolidation of Pine apple Industry. Among the arrivals from San Fran cisco yesterday in the steamship Wil hehnina was R. I. Bentley, who is presi dent of the California Fruit Packing Association, one of the largest Organ-, izations of its kind in the world. He is here on matters of important, busi ness pertaining to the local pineapple industry, and report has it that it is the idea of the California company to take over the Consolidated Pineapple Company of this Territory and, perhaps, eventually, to control the product and canning of this luscious fruit. Bently may go to-Hilo today in the Wilhelmina on business having to do with pineapple cultivation and the ex port of the canned and fresh fruit. In cidentally, he will make trip to the vol cano, to combine business with pleasure. He brought his automobile with him and with his machine he will lose no time in covering the Oahu pineapple situation, nor will he neglect to see Oahu for beauty's sake. May Be Big Deal. The Hawaiian pineapple industry is assuming tremendous proportions and the splendid fruit is becoming known all over the Lnited States and in many other parts of the world. Mr. Bentley is enthusiastic over the Hawaiian product and believes the possibilities are unlimited. He came here ou the pineapple business entirely and there will be a big pineapple deal consum mated or arranged before he takes his departure for the mainland. At this time, pending negotiations, there is nothing of a definite nature being giv ,en out for publication, but it is stated on good authority that representatives of the California Fruit Packing Associa tion here have recommended certain action toward consolidation of the trade for the benefit of the industry, and it is believed that the California concern will eventually be mainly if not alto gether interested in the growing en terprise. Largest Single Shipment. As an indication of the magnitude! ot the local pineapple business and as an illustration of what jumps the pro duction is taking, it is interesting to note that when the Matson steamship Lurline last night sailed for San Fran cisco she carried the largest single ship ment of pineapples ever exported from these Islands. So great was the con signment by the Matson boat that the sailing of the vessel was twice post poned in order to get the freightage of fruit aboard. The Lurline was to have sailed at six o 'clock ; J hen her departure was deferred until nine o'clock, but it was midnight when she got awav. tak ing 40.70H eases of canned pineapples. If- is easily the second industry of the Territory and capitalists on the main land as well as investors here realize the fact. TWENTY-FOURTH NOT TO COME TO HAWAII ( Continued from Page One.) With Hawaii created into a separate military department, and Col. Walter S. Schuyler. Fifth Cavalry, in tem porary command, until a brigadier-general is assigned to the station, all mat ters affecting the department here will now be gathered under one man 's direc tion, and in future such matters as the disturbing report regarding the Twenty-fourth can be brought to the com manding oilier s attention and credited or discredited directly. l"p to the pre ent time, although Colonel Schuyler has been the ranking officer, yet each post was a separate command and the officer in command was almost supreme.
