HALF STARVE So Declares Democratic Orator at Aala Park Rally McCandless' Address Was Blatant Misrepresentation. It would be giving too much credit to L. L. McCandless aud some of his speakers to say that they are ignorant 4i the facts concerning which they purport to talk. They can not be as ignorant as they appeared last night at the "grand Democratic rally" at Aala fark, when some of the rankest and most deliberate misrepresentations were made by the orators to several hundred people after the rain started and five that- manv before the Nuuanu elouds began to spill. MeCandless said, for instance: '.'If . yon. ifant tais country noouea wun . laborers, who will take the work away from you, vote for the Kepublieans, who are holding open the door; but, if you want to have door shut and these peo ple kept out, vote for the Democrats." He did not tell the voters before him that neither Republican nor Dem- 1 wrat could prevent the planters from bringing to Hawaii as many Porto Bicans and Filipinos as they wished, without anyone being in a position to say what men and how many should come. He only promised to shut the door Oil immigration. He made that promise in Hawaiian in the same tone that he . would have promised to prop open the door of heaven if he had thought it voold catch a vote. . He told his hearers that the Russians were only getting a dollar and a half day on the waterfront when, the Hawaiians used to get two dollars, but he didn't say that not even a Russian would work for the wages he is paying lii own men at Waikane, where a Hawaiian luna gets but twenty-two dollars t month. .He did not state that the 'general wage rate for labor around IIo ttkh today is higher than when the first Russians landed, with work more ' He held np as an example to be followed, the way the United States treats 1h Indiana, stating some most extraordinary' thirds to the effect that the ludiaas got the pick of the land from the white settlers who first came to the ' raited States, and that they were ever treated with great kindness by the ! American government. He did not tell how the American soldiers hunted the Indians out of all the best lands, herded them on reservations, refused, to allow them any of the rights of citizenship, tabued strong drink for them all, would sot allow them to travel without written permission and kicked them from one reservation, to another as fast, as the white men wanted their land. If was n,ot that McCandless did not know the truth that made the pity of the meeting last night. It was the fact that he did know the truth, but preferred not to speak.it that was sickening. Mary a disgusted person left Aala Park last. night, disheartened at the spectacle of some hundreds of credulous Hawaiians being deliberately and knowingly misled. Pacheco's Wild Talk. M. C. Pacheco delivered an address in which he voiced the desire of the Democratic party to prevent further im migration into this country until the plantations would be forced to pay "a living wage. " He denounced immigra tion as something that would only take the foread out of the mouths of the Pp1e already domiciled in the Islands. He harangued generally against the planters, "who are starving the peo PIe and stated that the campaign of lae Advertiser was onlv designed bv A. Thurston in o-,!.,,. V,.. ,1.1 !

He also had something to say about set tlers.

His principal point was that Shingle "had voted in the house against i a bill making $2 the minimum wage for road laborers. M. C. Pacheco. candidate for super- visor proved to ha the main Pnglish speaker. He dwelt chiefly on the mat ter of immigration, anti-immigraiion being the main plank -of the Demo cratic platform. He flourished a stock certificate which he drew from his inner pocket at the psychological moment, de claring that it was a certificate for one hundred shares of Olaa stock and that its face value was for two thousand dollars, whereas, he said, it was worth at the present time only four hundred and fifty dollars. Then" he went on to say that the man who had founded the Olaa enterprise was "that well-beloved citizen and great prohibition man," L. A. Thurston. tit. ,ioninre.i ttmt not onlv were the plantation interests trying to cut the wasres of laborers, but they elf in the premises, when they man tged to get a few shares of stock. He IT. went into the details of explaining inai he meant that whereas he was supposed to have two thousand dollars worth of Olaa stock in his hands, he had as a matter of fact only four hundred and fi 1 1 v dollars' worth. Pacheco went on to say that we could not expect to make American citizens out of the "hell-broth which was being dumped into this country by the assist ed immigration methods of the sugar planters and the territorial govern ment" , . lX. He said that all he owned in this Territory outside of his own home, for which he had worked bard, was a few shares of sugar stock which had de preciated because it was not a good holding. . ,. . , Pacheco said that The Advertiser had insinuated that all that the Democrats could do was to spread a big luau, but he wa on a platform which promised (Continued on Page Five.) CREW BATTLED . FOR THEIR LIVES The Schooner Ethel Zane Almost Lost 1500 Ties Jettisoned. Taking in water at the rate of thir teen inches an hour, with the pumps barely equal to the task of keeping the water down to this alarming rise, and with the crew almost exhausted with their efforts to save their own lives, the American schooner Ethel Zane put into port Thursday night, and is at present being kept afloat by an electric pump which was installed last night. The Ethel Zane left Hilo for Kedondo, Calif ornia? with a cargo of ohia railroad ties for the Santa Fe rail road, and after being out nine days ran into a gale which nearly sent her to the bottom. After battling with the gale it wa3 discovered that she had sprung a leak and was filling rapidly. When the gale began to subside the captain put her about and sailed for Honolulu. The crew worked aight and day at the pumps, but the wrater continued to rise and grave fears were felt then that she would not keep afloat long enough to get in sight of Oahu. It was be lieved aboard that not only one leak was responsible for the inpour of water, but that her seams had opened up in many places. The heavy ties, like load, seemed to menace the boat itself as had ties on the Prosper and Aloha before, both of which had to put back to Hono lulu for repairs. During the height of the gale th captain order the crew to jettison the cargo and about fifteen hundred ties were thrown into the sea. Finally late on Thursday the Ethel Zane arrived off port with signals of distress set and she was towed into haribor and moored at a wharf. The pumps, however, had to be kept going. A survey board consisting of Captain Macaulay, Captain Clark and T. Lyle was appointed, to inspect the vessel. They have recommended that the vessel be unloaded and repaired here. This will probably take some time as the board discovered that there is a general leak all over the hull; the butts are loose, the garboard streak i letting water in by the ton and wooden pegs all over are loosened, and a part of her rigging has been broken. GENERAL POHS A PASSENGER ON THE KOREA Prigadier-deneral Eamsay D. Totts, :io has been commanding the depart ment of Luzon, Philippine Islands, may be a through passenger on the Pacifie Mail steamship Korea next Friday, en route home where he w-ill be retired in the early part of November. His re tirement will cause the promotion of Colonel Macomb, and on reaching the general grade, General Macomb' will come to Honolulu to assume command of the new district of Hawaii. General Potts has been ill for some time and was a patient at the division hospital in .Manila. Colonel Hatfield, Thirteenth Cavalry, took over the duties of department commander during this time. THIRTEEN HOURS SANTA CLAEA, California, Octo ber 10. Seismographic instruments located here yesterday recorded violent earthquake shocks and seismic dis turbances lasting thirteen hours. The shocks were a great distance from the instruments. They began first at six o'clock in the morning and did not cease until seven last night. The cen ter of the shocks appeared to be in a general northeasterly direction from this place but their exact location can not bo determined. QUARRY PLANT TO BE BIGGEST YET A $30,000 quarrying plant will arrive here about November 1st for the Hono lulu Praying ami Construction Com pany, and will be located near the base ball grounds at Kamoiliih. The plant will have a capacity of about Sua yards of rock and sand" per day, much larger than any other plant now being conducted here. There will also be storage bunkers of a thousand yards capacity. The company will be able to handle all kinds of rock mate rial, for house construction and street paving. The quarry will be one of the most important additions to the city's plants for turning out rough material. The Bitulithic Paving and Construc tion Company is now erecting the plant which arrived here on the Virginian on Thursday, and within a few weeks will be ready to handle any street paving job. The bitulithic material is for per manent streets, such as the board of supervisors has already gone on record as wanting for Fort street. IMPROVEMEIIT OF DOCKJSCILITIES Both Federal and Territorial Money Will Be Used b Pre pare for Growing Shipping. In addition to the $200 noo which the federal government will expend on dredging and cleaning up the harbor basin and clearing the channel, the Ter ritory will also exjiend between $130,000 and $200,000 in dredging the harbor slips and remodeling and dredging out slip extensions. The present Matson wharf is to be lengthened and tlie slips also extended up toward Queen -street, the job taking in the site of the Brewer building, razed a few months since. All the slips will have to be dredged, as many of them have been filling rapidly. The Hackfeld wharf slips may also be redredged, as the Matson Navi gation Company is taking over the old Hackfeld wharf, where the shed will be extended to nine hundred feet in length, so that two of the company's largest vessels may berth in the same slip at the same time and work cargoes. Bids for Federal Dredging. On November 2 bids will be opened at the office of Major Winslow, Corps of Engineers, for dredging the harbor and channel under the federal appro priation. All the contractors who are equipped with dredgers are making ten ders for this work. The Hawaiian Dredging Company, although up to its ears with the work at Pearl Harbor, where it has a fleet of five machines at work on the bar, channel, harbor and drydock, may be one of the bidders, while Iloogs & P.elser, who have one machine already and another yet to be built, will be in the field also. About seventy thousand cubic yards of material are to be taken from the channel, and from the upper end of the harbor sixty-thousand yards are to be delivered to the Oahu Railroad and Land Company for filling purposes on some of its lands in the vicinity of the harbor. Insufficiency of Wharves. As to wharves, the growing import ance of the harbor indicates to those in the shipping business that there is an insufficiency of wharf space for the better class of liners now entering the harbor. The Matson Navigation Com pany has outgrown the wharf where it ,T-ee'an operations and has taken over the old Hackfeld wharf. Old as it is, the wharf will have to be remodeled and brought as nearly np to date as possible, owing to the vast increase of its business. The Hackfeld wharf i3 not well situated for passenger business, being far from the street car lines and inconvenient in rainy and muddy weather. The government may have a proposi tion laid before it shortly that wharves be bui't by corporations having ship ping interests, on the understanding that a refund be made by the legisla ture for whatever outlays are made. The time is growing short when the two American continents will be divided by a ship canal, which will be the medium by which great Atlantic passenger liners will pass into the Pacifie and out to China via Honolulu. Four years from now is the time set for opening the canal. It takes nearly two years to build a big wharf he're. Delays shorten np the time, and when 1914 ar rives, under present plans, the wharf age will not keep pace with the de mands. HEADING FOR U. S. TOKTO, Octolwr 16. The Japanese naval training squadron, consisting of the cruisers Asama and Kasahi, with over one hundred cadets on board, sail ed yesterday from Yeddo Bay for San Francisco. They are due in San Fran cisco on November 19 but will spend one week at Honolulu, from the second to the ninth, and participate in the celebration of the Mikado's birthday. They will make a leisurely trip in or der that the cadets will have ample opportunity to become acquainted with their duties. UNDER ARREST FOR KILLING RINGMATE MONO, Oklahoma, October 13.

Although the cablegram received ves terday did not state that Melvin Vani-1 man is aboard the airship America, he was one ot the crew expected to ac - ... company Wellman in his attempt to cross the Atlantic. Vaniman was for merly a resident of Honolulu, an expert photographer whose panoramas of Ho nolulu were sent to all pafts of the world to promote tourist business. He was the first to obtain a panorama pic- luic ui iur; uaiuuij auu. tuia was tatveu. from the masthead of a ship at anchor in the bay.
