Registration Closed Last Night
With 7536 Names on
the Roll.
Members Threaten to Resign
Over Ruling of the
TOTAL 7536
, The registration board closed its
books last night with a total of 753t5
voters registered, a gain of 1109 over
the registration of 190S.
The fourth district leads the fifth
district by six votes.
Registration for 1903 gave a total of
6427 votes of which 3239 were from the
fourth and 31S8 from the fifth.
The town was scoured yesterday for
eligible voters and autos were used by
the Eepublican party to bring in de
linquents. Every effort was used by
.oota parties to get every voter in line
'and registered.
The rush caine after four o'clock,
.' when the board opened for its last ses
sion remaining open until ten o'clock
last night when Chairman Chillingworth
dramatically extinguished the lights
and declared the board adjourned.
That adjournment, however, marks a
hiatus in the affairs of the board, for
Begistrars John D. Holt and A. K.
iYierra have pTactieally resigned their
f positions, and will lay their complaints
before Governor Frear tomorrow morn
ing. Both resigned because of what
they considered aa adverse arbitrary
ruling on the part of the chairman. In
.brief, the trouble occurred over the
quwrtioaof whether-young voters, who
'fill be twenty-one years of age "after
yesterday and before election, day,
could be registered. The Board unani
mously decided to not register any not
yet twenty-one years of age, being their
version of'the law and in which they
were supported by A. Lindsay, attor-
ney-general. At one o'clock yesterday
afternoon a buneh of young men who
will shortly be twenty-one years old
were brought in and a statement made
that one of the circuit judges had de
clared they were eligible to be regis
tered. Thereupon Chairman Chilling
worth ordered Messrs. Holt and Vierra
to register, those brought before them.
They refused on the ground that the
board had decided what to do iu such
in-itanees, and on the further ground
that no ' written decision had been
brought before the board. . - -Chairman
Chillingworth thereupon
personally registered the
coming voters, and the remaining two
members of the board then declared

Immigration Work at
Funchal Promises
Some Success.
The latest advices received from A.
J. Campbell, special agent of the Ha
waiian board of immigration, who is
still at Funchal, Azores, are to the
effect that conditions appear much more
favorable for success in his Azores mis
sion. The earlier reports received from

that the 1911 pageant will be thorough

Wall, ever sine his appointment about
three week's since, has busied himself
in going over lists of names of those
whom he considered competent to man
age the important details of the vari

parade. v
One of the most important commit
tees, and a new one undertaken by Mr.
Wall, is the suggestion committee,
which w ill gather data concerning cost
and materials for decorating cars; ob

this has been placed Mrs. E. D. Tenney,
whose well-known artistic talent has
beta recognized in the past in inardi
gras, grand balls, fairs and bazars.
Others in this committee are Mrs.
Victor Houston, wife of Lieut.-Coiudr.

was in the nature of a petition from
certain citizens of Maui that the tract
of pt.230 acres of the grazing lauds of
Kanaio, Maui, for the lease of which
Doctor Raymond had applied, be sub
divided into tracts of from 1000 to

prize for
a flight in an airship from the Atlantic
to the Pacific Coast of the
I States, by way of Chicago, the lligat to
i be made within the month.
Mr. Campbell were rather pessimistic,
which grew more so as the Funchal
papers began to knock the "emigra
tion" and to publish reports dated from
Hawaii in which the Islands were given
a blaek eye. The Funchal papers
strongly advised their readers to stay
at home. It was to counteract these
reports, supposed to come from here,
that local Portuguese cabled at length
to Funchal recently.
Now, however, from what cause has
not been given out, there is a decided
change in the tenor of Mr. Campbell's
reports. He is still on the job, he says,
and working with good prospects of se
curing at Funchal a likely lot of ma
terial for American citizenship in Ha
waii. The report published recently that

Is Honolulu to become a clearing
house for the distribution of Japanese
from their native islands to different
parts of the world, especially to Xorth
and South American countries?
A peculiar proposition presents itself
for the consideration of American
statesmen and the thinkers of the gov
ernments of other countries in the two
great continents joined togeher by the
Panama Canal. Today, for example,
there arrived in Honolulu, per Pacific
Mail steamship Mongolia, one hundred
and twentv-two Japanese who are bound
for Tahiti.
This is the extraordinary part of it
all that they are bound for Tahiti.
Years ago the Japanese flooded into
the Hawaiian Islands, attracted by the
opportunities of making more money on
the Hawaiian sugar plantations than
they could ever make on the lands
of their own country. When a limita -
tion was marked as far as these Islands
were concerned, and they did not see
the same opportunities existing here
which existed lefore, they commenced
to hike for the United States mainland,
and thousands upon thousands got into
the western States. They emigrated to
Canada, also, and then to Mexico, and
for ve.irs Pern nn.l Chilo Wt, tp.
ceiving they in shiploads, but the fact
that they are now headed for Tahiti is
taken as a most significant sign in two
ways. First, it is likely that they are
becoming less welcome in the mainland
United States, Canada and Mexico, and
they have already been limited as far
as coming to the Hawaiian Islands is
concerned. Second, what is there to at
tract them to Tahiti?
The one hundred and twenty-two who
are aooam ine .Mongolia are going trom
here to San Francisco, where they in -
ten.t to transship to the Oceanic 'team-
ship Mariposa and be carried to Tahiti.
Will they stay in Tahiti, or will they
later iind their way to Australia?
Is it an attempt on their part to get
Australia, where for several years,

As far as Peru and Chile are con

numbers of Japanese to work. And
Mexico, even, is anxious to get Japa

and Canada the people have begun to
rind out that cheap Japanese labor is
labor that creates disturbances and is
nor desirable in the long run, for the
reason that the Japanese form trusts

Mr. Campbell had gone on to Spain
was premature. It had been arranged
't is true, that Mr. .Campbell should-
proceed on to the Portuguese mainland
in lease his island campaign gave promise-:
of failure, but it was not contem
plated to send him into Spanish terri
tory. .Since K. II. Stackabie worked up
a successful migration from Spain the
law in regard to labor recruiters has
been changed, and it is now illegal for
immigration agents to do any recruit
ing in that kingdom.
It would be possible, of course, for
an agent to work near the Spanish fron
tier in Portugal, or to open up head
quarters at Gibraltar and labor from
there, but all work would have to be
long range, aud.on that account uncer

Field' Battery Quarters Can Be
Prepared in Short
Xo provision has yet been made at
Sehofield Barracks for the battery of
field artillery, as no instructions have
been received by the commanding offi
cer, Colonel Schuyler, Fifth Cavalry,
to prepare quarters. Only a copy of
the order directing the battery to leave
San Francisco on the November trans
port has been received. The horses for
the battery will probably be sent at a
later date, possibly on the Dix, together
with the mounts of the second squadron
of the Fifth Cavalry.
Colonel Schuyler states that the quar
ters can be erected in eighteen days
from the receipt of the order to do so.
The news that the war department

Wealthy Woman Married Last
Night to Youthful Tenor, the
Son of Charley Clark.
Mrs. Emma Dreier, widow of the late
A. Dreier, the wealthy Kauai planter,
and Henry Clark, son of Mr. and Mrs.
Charles Clark, were married last even
ing in St. Augustine's Catholic Chapel
at Waikiki by Eev. Father Valentin.
George I. Brown and Miss Elsie A.
Kapu stood with the couple. This was
a romance of May and December, as
the 'bride is fifty-two years of age, and
the groom scarcely twenty-four.
The news of the wedding sped on the
wings of gossip and soon was the "talk
of the town," largely on account of
the disparity iu the ages of the couple,
and also because no such union had
been dreamed of by their friends until
rumor had it yesterdav afternoon that
Mfs Dr
er was about to become Mrs.
Clark. It was a quiet wedding and
efforts were made to keep it a secret,
but hardly had the priest's last words
been spoken than the news was on the
way. It is said that the priest, in his
admonitory talk to the prospective
bride and groom, spoke seriously of the
obstacles which beset the course of true
love and f it ore married bliss, and
then, concluding his talk, he joined
them together in the holy bonds of
The groom is the son of Charles
Clark, the well known politician. Ho

critics, as he possesses a voice of un
usual sweetness. He i-s a brother-in-law

Explosion Imprisons Between 50
and 125 and Rescue Work
Is Hard.
Heartrending Scenes on the Sur
face, Families Despairing '
for Loved Ones.
TRINIDAD, October 9. -Between
fifty and one hundred and twenty-five
miners have been walled in, with little
hope of their being rescued for several
days, in the Colorado Fuel Mine at
Starkville, as the result of an explosion.
There is some hope of keeping the
men alive by air passages until they
can be dug out.
Whether any have been killed in the
explosion will be impossible to say
until the galleries where the men are
imprisoned have been opened and ex
plored. Through air passages, some of
which still exist, not having been affect
ed by the explosion, it is hoped to get
in telephonic communication with the
prisoners by the establishment of a
line, and everything will be done to
keep up their spirits until rescue can,
be effected.
The scene on the surface is heart
rending, the families of the buried
miners despairing of ever again behold
ing their loved cues. The cause of the
explosion is not known.
MILLBURY, Massachusetts, October
Today a stranger appeared in a
;nysterious manner at the home of Miss
Delia C. Torrey, who is an aunt of
President Taft, and, without revealing
his identity, related to her the fact that
in the city of Boston he had overheard
a plot, to assassinate the President.
Threatening to kill the woman if she
breathed a word of what he had said to
her, and leaving her in a nervous state
bordering on hysteria, the unknown
man disappeared as mysteriously as he
had made himself seen.
The police have taken the matter in
hand and the Boston authorities have
been communicated with in hopes of
either running. down the plot or else
ascertaining that the information is the
imagination of a lunatic.
Miss Torrey, as soon as she had re
covered from the shock of the startling
intelligence, lost no time iu informing
the authorities.
