peculiar complications yesterday de
veloped in the bidding oil the construc
tion of tie Kahului Harbor breakwater,
Tben the tenders were opened in the
cffiee of Maj. E. Eveleth Winslow of
tht engineers, and only one was found,
accompanied hy several protests from
other would-be bidders.
The protests are variously based on
the fact that the Kahului Railroad
Company has refused to quote rates on
lauling'roek for the breakwater and
on the assumption that it is itself a
bidder, contrary to the rules of the
interstate tmuiucicc iuiiimj.Uu, I
Oa this last point, the x.ord-ioung
Engineering Company, which filed the
most emphatic protest, mentions a rul-
' ing which forbids a railway corporation !
from bidding on federal work which in-1
yolves carrying stone used over its own !
In answer to this, Superintendent
Williams of the 'Kahului Railroad de
uies that his company is barred from

Morgan Dredging Company, by its presi
dent, J. J. Belser, who tlaim3 that the I
nilroad refused, not to quote rates, but
to quote rates which made it possible
for them to bid.
The Kahului Kailroad offered two j
lids, one on the delivery of stone and
trastrnetion of the breakwater, and the
other on delivery only, for the govern
ment to construct. The first was fl.So
1 ton and the second $1.33 a ton. The
bids and protests will all be forwarded

PEOPLE RIGHT' HAS BEEN F0RCED T0 RES,GN
McCandless Had Stirred Up
Lot of Questions, Which
Were All Answered.
''I followed up Link on Hawaii and
talked with the people in a general
way, telling them what the Republican
party has done for the land," said
Prince valanianaole yesterday, on his
return from campaigning on Hawaii
and Maui. "After I had finished I
asked them, generally, if they had any
ouestious to ask me. Sure enough thev
j had, questions they had stored up ever
.Link talked to them. 1 knew
they would ask questions, so I didn't
dwell on the subjects which those ques
tions would contain. Their questions
dealt with the stuff Link had handed
out to ihwn. I put them right. 1 let
it sink in, and I know it has been
effective. I feel very sure of Hawaii."
The Prince campaigned on Maui. He
found things in a turmoil there, and
there is much trouble in all the parties.
The Republicans are no better oft' than
the others, and there is considerable
knifing. Maui will be again visited .by
the Prince ar-d he will endeavor to
straighten out some of the kinks.
He will shortly leave for Kauai and
make a thorough canvass of that island.
Last campaign the Prince did not make
much of a stay on Kauai. This time,
however, in deference- to the wishes of
the .people there he will make a longer
visit and get thoroughly acquainted
It is altogether likely that the Dele
gate will confino his campaigning large
ly to the other islands and do Oahu
in the very last days.
Today the candidates will accompany
Delegate Kalanianaole to Waimanalo
whre they will make things hum. Wai
manalo has hith'rto been left very- much
to itself politically, but the candidates
will show themselves and make it one
of their ,d:ees of visitation. A luau
will be spread there for all comers.
Ou Monday night a rousing rally will
be held in Kakaako by the Republicans
and on Tuesday night another big rally ohinu ou Saturday evening. It was ac
will be held in the fifth district. The cording to the statements of people who

Saturday afternoon we held a meeting

getting in his work. The question
which interested the people there the
most was that of the appointment of a
land commission. They wanted to know
why the Governor had been given the
power to appoint such a commission,
arguing that it would have been better
had the questions which are being han
dled by the commission, such as the
valuation of lands, been covered by
statute. The Prince was, however, able
to explain the matters in a manner
which was satisfactory to the voters,

SAN FRANCISCO, October 15.
Emphatically urging the country to
seek white immigrants for Hawaii).
i Senator F. G. Newlands of Neyada,
who is here with Secretary of the
Navy Meyer, last night made a
stirring address before a large
gathering of local business men, on
Hawaii's position in the national
scheme of defense on the Pacific.
He declared that there was the
greatest necessity on the part of
the country as a whole to secure
for Hawaii immigrants which would
not turn upon the flag in case a hostile demonstration was made
by what is at present the greatest naval power on the Pacific,
In his whole address he showed a keen grasp of Hawaiian
affairs and needs. As a Democrat he was voicing the sentrments
of his party and from statements made by Secretary Meyer, the
opinions of the present federal administration as well.
He impressed on his hearers the emphatic need of a greater
fleet in the Pacific and said that the country was forced to con
template the menace of a hostile Japanese fleet in front of Hawaii,
where a preponderance of Japanese in the population of the Islands
who would turn upon their adopted country, would lose for the
United States at one blow, not only the Territory but its whole
domination of Pacific commerce.
ABOLISH ATLANTIC NAVAL YARDS.
Secretary Meyer, who has just reached the city after an inspec
tion of the Mare Island naval yard, made one of the most sensa
tional addresses of his administration -of the Navy, advocating in
emphatic statements the abolishment of half the great navy yards
on the Atlantic coast.
The money and energy thus saved, he declared, should at once
be diverted to the Pacific ports, there to build up and develop two
of the greatest naval centers in the country. His conclusions, he
stated, were based on his experiences and observations while in
specting the coast navy yards.
