Tlicrc was nothing slated or prearranged alowt the convention of the independent home rain party, which 'met in the drill shed yesterday and completed its ticket. It was not a territorial, but a legislative, convention, and delegations were present only from the Third senatorial district. Indeed, the only business lnfore the mectiitc was the nomination of senators anil representatives, the party platform having been adopted at the convention In June, at which Mr. Wilcox was also nominated for delegate to con-, gress. It was therefore a siniplc affair, yet the convention was in session from 10 o'clock in the morning until 7:30 o'clock in the evening. At the original roll call ninety-four delegates responded, but from time to time the numler showed 112 present, especially during the middle of the day. Two ladles were uniongst the delegates, Mrs. Kaluapaloa and Mrs. Anakou. loth of Laie. D. Kalauokalani called the convention to order and J. Kaleihuai was secretary. Both men were made permanent olficers of the convention, after prayer by the Rev. Mr. Oili. Dclogntos to tho Convention. On motion, Messrs. Kauuha. Meekapa Nehemiah and Mahoe were appointed a committee on credentials. After an absence of ten or fifteen minutes this committee reappeared and reported the following iersons present and entitled to participate in the convention : S. K. Mahoe. J. K. Waiolo. Mahi Koa, Moses Patau. Jesse Makainni. J. W. John Alapai, J. P. Kahanawai. E. V. Palau. W. II. Kcalakai, Juo. Kehihcenalu, Wm. K. Kaleihuia, W. O. Kalciopuu. Chas. Liilii, Moke Manu. Jno. P. Kuola.

The speeches were all moderate and courteous in tone and the convention was most creditable in its personnel, its intelligence and eicellent tem- PCr" Declined to Extra Pledges. When the time arrived for the nomination or senators the following letter from J. O. Carter was read: "Honolulu. II. T. Oct. 10, 1000, "D. Kalauokalani. Chairman of Conven-, tion of the Independent Home Rule Partv z "Sir Yesterday afternoon Messrs.

Being forewarned of the course yoa would pursue, I must ask yon not to consider nie as a candidate for any position on the ticket of your parry. My appeal inuAt Le from your convention to the, Hawaiian people. Very truly yours. "J. O. CAHTEIt." Acted as a Samper. There is no doubt that Mr. Carter's letter had the effect of a damper on many delegates. It was seriously considered. At the same time the following letter from E. C. Macfarlane was also read: -Honolulu. H. I, Oct. 10. 1900. "D. Kalauokalani, Chairman Nominating Convention of the Independent Home Rule Party: "Sir Messrs. Robert Boyd and George Markham called upon me yesterday, giving me to understand that they bore a message from you, the purport of which was that a pledge bad been prepared by you and other leaders of your party, which I must sign if I desired a nomination as senator for the Third bcnatorial district, and 1 understand that you admit that the pledge came from you to me. "My answer to your message as given to them was that I would refuse to sign any pledge, but they requested me to give the matter further consideration, which I have done, and the result of such deliberation Leads me to say more emphatically that I will not sign a pledge, particularly such an one as was presented to me for consideration. "I cannot believe that the Hawaiian people will approve of your action and 1 shall be content to abide their decision at the polls. I remain, very truly, "E. a MACFARLANE." It. X. Boyd explained that Messrs. carter and Macfarlane objected to sec-ion I! of the pledge, which demanded opposition to the confirming of appoint ments by Governor Dole. What the Pledge Pwnndad. This announcement created interest in the pledge of legislative candidates, which seemed to be news to most of the dele gates. Tbey wanted to know what it was like, who formulated it and what it was all about., The pledge was unearthed and found to read as follows: "To Whom It May Concern: We do hereby pledge ourselves to support of the independent home rule party. "First We do hereby declare that" wc arc not n member of the democratic or republican parties in the Territory of Hawaii. "Second We pledge ourselves to support the platform of the independent home rule party. "Third We do hereby pledge ourselves not to confirm any of the appointments of Governor Dole in section 80 ttf 1ia f!Mifr,"in! Art " Alenjhny"dfscus!ion ensuedTMr. Pa lau asked, "Why stick for Carter? He says wc are ignorant and he has declined the honor." Meekapu declared no man would sign such ap ledge and wanted to know why it should be forced on nominees. Markham roasted Meekapu, saying that everybody ought to be pledged. The chair said the house would not listen to any further argument or pledges, but would immediately proceed to business. Nominations in Order. A proposition to discuss the availability us a candidate each individual wn nvprrulwl hv Chairman Kalauo kalani and ballots were ordered printed lielorc the nominations were proceeueu with, Chairman D. Kalauokalani was nominated for senator by acclamation. The following nominations for senators were then made: Jas. K. Kaulia, Geo. Markham, D. Kanuha. J. O. Carter. J. W. Bipikane. Wm. Auld, S. K. Pua. R. X. Boyd", J. Kauui, J. P. Makainai, Frank Harvey, J. Emmeluth. It was now 111:30 o'clock, and as Mr. Wilcos suggested that it was time for refreshments, an adjournment was taken for an hour. On reassembling it was announced that the executive committee had eliminated section 3 of the candidates' pledge. Mr. Pua said Messrs. Carter and Macfarlane had declined to be candidates lefore the convention because of that pledge. It was done in secret, he said, and it was well to know whether it was done in convention or was the work of one man. A delegate in rear of hall wanted to work and vote for the names on the ballot, without any reference to that pledge or any other. Pua wanted to knock out the pledge entirely. He said the independent party was fighting for equality. The pledge rather indicated that they were fighting for oflice rather than anything else. "Knock it out" be said. Mossman Pleads for Tolerance. William Mobsman also spoke on the same lines and for tolerance. "I would not pledge myself if I were a nominee," said Mr. Mossman. "to reject the appointments of Governor Dole. Let us not take an attitude of defiance: let us not be svifish. We must strive not only for our own good, but for all the people We are all Americans." Finally the rules were suspended so as to meet all emergencies, and it was roolved that Messrs. Carter and be notified that their declinations of honor at the hands of this convention having been "written nnder a misrepresentation of facts they wonld not be recognized. After a speech laudatory of the candidates by the chair, Messrs. Meheuia and Joe Clark were appointed tellers and a ballot rwulted as. follows: - - Kaulia. 74: Markham, 20; Kanuha, OS: Carter. 53: Bipikane. 18: Auld, 37; Pua. ST: Boyd, .7; Kanui, lb; 25; Harvey, 1; Emmeluth, 5. Thereujwn Messrs. Kaulia. Kanuha, Carter, Pua and Boyd, in addition to Mr. Kalauokalani. were declared the nominees of the convention, amid the wildest tumult. An adjournment was then taken for refreshments, consisting of sandwiches, pie. root beer, jirujer ale and soft drinks generally preeBttiT YMtiaatit&s. On reasserablins o'clock the Fourth and IHfth districts held separate conventions for thepurpdse of nominating representatives. -There was Sch "of speechakfcg; tbe'natirare aU orators, or they think they are, and vs 'constantly oo tap.

Paele were declared to be the choice of the convention. Messrs. Pendergrast and Kauoha ran a tie, each receiving 22 TOtes. On a second ballot Pendergrast was made the nominee, receiving 39 votes to 1G for his opponent. The . convention then adjourned sine dje. $ ht a Legal Miser Far Territory if Imii t Attorney General Griggs Indicates That He Has Other Duties to Perform. A batch of correspondence was received yesterday by Governor Dole from the state department at Washington relating to the claims of the Japanese and Chinese for losses sustained im the plague fire last winter. TheJetters were in reply to a communication sent ly Governor Dole, stating ihat he was powerless to adjudicate the losses and requesting, an interpretation of President McKinley's telegram to the president of the Hawaiian republic, approving the appointment of a. commission of five to take evidence of losses and to make awards. Acting Secretary Adee says concerning the president's telegram that since, it was sent the Territory of Hawaii has been erected, intimating thereby that a change of status has come to pass so far as - the. -federal, government, is -legally interested in the adjudication of the fire losses. The communication does not go into detail in the discussion of thisj phase of the matter. An opinion of the. attorney general of the United States is enclosed, which states in part : "The claims of the Japanese and Chinese subjects referred to are not. in a legal sense, against the United States, but against the Territory of Hawaii or the municipality of Honolulu. While in an international sense it may properly be deemed the province of the general government to watch that justice is done to citizens and subjects of other powers .whose peisons or property may have been unlawfully interfered with or injured, either by state or territorial authorities, yet in the first instance it is equally incumbent UDon the general government to remit the question of obligation in such cases to the territorial it such opportunity as may be necessary under the forms of law that prevail within its jurisdiction, and to look to the territory to provide ways and means to meet such obligations as may be established against it. "It is not. under such circumstances, the function of the attorney general of the United States to direct or advise the Territory of Hawaii in a matter of domestic administration. Its action must properly be advised by and taken in conformity with the directionst the law officers of the -territory and by the established executive and legislative orders of the government thereof." Secretary Adee closes his letter with the remark that Attorney General John W. Griggs recommends that the very reasonable suggestion of Governor Dole, that the matter lie brought before the first Hawaiian legislature, be acquiesced in. - ? EXECUTIVE COUNCIL. Marine Hospital Service to Have One-Half of Channel Wharf. In executive council yesterday Qpv ernor Dole reported that Dr. Carmichael of the marine hospital service wanted at least one-half of the Channel wharf for use by his department for quarantine purposes. After discussion, Superintendent McCandles was requested to inform Dr. Carmichael that he could have as much of the wharf as may be needed for the purpose mentioned, the remainder to be used for dockage. Wray Taylor, commissioner of agriculture, read a letter from Dr. Stubbs relating to the establishment of an experiment station here. The application of Aki Jc Co. of for a light wine and leer license was brought up by Mr. Lansing. A letter from Sheriff Andrews was read opposing the license. It was not granted. The Hiwaiian Plumbing Supply Co. was given permission to change its name "by dropping th word "plumbing. Governor Dole recommended the transfer of $25,000 from the current fund to the loan fund. The recommendation received the approval of the council. A letter was read from Harbor Master Fuller, stating that the di edging being done by, the Oahh Railway company is filling up the harbor. The matter was urged as worthy of action at ence. Accordingly., Superintendent McCandless of the public work bureau notified the rail: way compasy yesterday that the work must l stopped. $ .

Do they take us for dogs that turn and lick the foot of the SMster that kickB them?' The republicaaJparty is being run by the Bulletin crowd. I remember once irhen the same Bulletin came out and spoke of Queen Liliuokalanh I as the ex-queen. A few hours after the publication of the article the people went to the Bulletin office and wanted to throw the press into the street- The same people who ran" "the Bulletin then are trying to run the republican party of Hawaii now. As we have no papers of our own we must go" out and electioneer. We must make ourselves- into a committee of one and get votes for the independent party. Allbinds of rumors will be spread by the 'republicans. They will say that Quinn has withdrawn and that Pua has withdrawn. You must not believe these reports. They will be false. ,rWhen I speak of the republican party I mean the party here and not that of the mainland. Judge Little of Hilo has done a great deal for the Hawaiian Islands. He is a republican like the republicans of the mainland. W. O. Smith, W. R. Castle, A. S. Hartwell and others of the republicans 'of Hawaii went to congress to try and keep the Ha waiians from having a vote. - When they left Washington the republicans called upon Robert Wilcox. They received him as a Hawaiian and heard what he had to say as a Hawaiian. The leading republicans of Hawaii tried to keep you from having a vote. Wilcox and Judge-Little were the men who got the votes for you. "The republicans here say that they will pay you money and give you luaus to vote for them. I advise you to take their money and eat attheir luaus, but vote as you please. Vote for your party and for. your leader, Robert Wilcox. Don't let them throw dust in jour eyes. "They talk about Sam Parker and say that he is the only man that has the ear of the president of the United States. They talk about what Sam says to ilcKinley and what McKinley says to Sam. If Sam is the only one here who is close to McKinley, why did he not get the governorship of the territory? Now he says that it is because he did not want it. After the election he will say that he did not want to be elected to congress. Why should Parker go in with the people who stole his country? "I will now tell you a little anecdote. I told it about nine years ago. There was once a missionary who had One day he was going along in the mountains and he was on a very narrow road. He met a big bear. He was afraid to turn around and run, a the bear would catch him if he did. He could not climb up out of the bear's-way as the mountain was too steep.

Robert Wilcox's speech was short; bat pointed sad somewhat persoaaL He said in effect: "There are misers aJoat to the effect that I have been bought, body and ).! by the other parties.

The rejwblkana are IS snakes down them, t ask that those satire Hawaiians who have joined the republican and democratic parties to come back to their fold once more." ,- KU3T DOW BY HACX3CAX. John C. Baird Seriously' Injured by a Chinese Driver. John C Baird, United States attorney, has been scarcely able to get to his office since Tuesday. On that morning he was spinning up King street on his bicycle. A Chinaman driving a hack was on the opposite side of the street, driving rapidly in the same direction. The Oriental driver suddenly whirled his team across the stiett and tared them in the opposite course, colliding with Mr. Baird. who made a futile effort to dodge the catastrophe by back-pedaling. The attorney was knocked down, tramped upen ind knocked insensible. In falling he struck against the hack springs, cutting a bis gash on his chin and neck. The juguiar vein was exposed and narrowly missed being ruptured. Dr. Galbraitli mnde the necessary surgical repairs. Th Chinaman made"hasie to escape the scene of the accident and the number of his hack was not obtained. Mr. Baird is yet out of danger, as blood poisoning may develop. P r Supreme Court Decisions Is Viewed by Public Generally Believed. That Conviction. on Verdict of Nine Men is Hank Injustice. Many and cutting were the remarks made yesterday by business men and attorneys upon the diametrically opposed opinions rendered by the Bupreme court in the. JSdwarda and Marshall cases. Practically every man who spoke tojR publiean 'reporter upoathe subject! rterdafj.deaqoticed theL decision in the as an outrage and a travesty upon justice That a man could-' be convicted of an infamous crime by a jury of nine men and without an indictment having been returned by a grand tjury seemed too incredible for belief. Instead of being under English and Amer ican law it would seem jthat the Territory of Hawaii had reverted back to the old French code preceding the Code Napoleon. The following from the Evening Bulletin was heartily endorsed by citizens generally last nighti The decisions of the supreme court in the Edwards case and the Marshall case are the most magnificent travesty on justice that was ever witnessed in tho American nation. Two men come before this august body charged with a criminal offense. Their liberty depends on the decision rendered on identically the same point of law. One goes free,- the other to jail. If the sentences imposed by the lower courts are any criterion, the man set free was a greater criminal than the one imprisoned. One was a crime gainst civilized humanity, the other the ' product of a fanatical mind. "If the monarchy fnrnishfd topics for an opera bouffe this ought to create material for a farce comedy. It seems to establish the fact that a supreme court decision docp not establish a point of law but merely furnishes a source of argument which the next day may be upset, kicked about trampled under foot, and a citizen 'be thereby refused his liberty or a criminal set free. "Lawyers may view the contradiction as one of the curious results of legal technicalities. The people, who look to the courts for justice, have no time or desire for consideration for technicalities, see in this result a failure of the citizen threatened. Justice is impossible under these decisions. The personnel of the men involved or the crime of which they were found guilty is of small moment. The facts before the court were practically the same. Either one released has escaped justice and the one jailed is suffering -an injustice or the reverse is true. "Fortunately there is now a source of appeal to the national, courts. The people of this territory are indifferent to their duty, lacking in their appreciation of justice if they fail in taking advantage of their present privilege and carrying the case to the highest courts of the land." 9 Hawaii to Have an Experiment Station Secretary Wilson Has Acted Fa vorably Upon the Report of Dr. Stubbs. Information comes from Dr. Wm. C. Stubbs, director of the Lonisiana experiment station, that Secretaty Wilson of the agricultural department on pot lected by Dr. Stubbs on the reservation back of MakikL The letter in which this news comes was susmittcl to the executive council yesterday by Wray Taylor and reads as rollois: "Lonisiana Sugar Experiment Station. Audubon Park. New Orleans. La.. Sept. 17, 1900. "Mr. Wray Taylor, Commissioner of Agriculture and Forestry. Honolulu. H. I.: "My Dear Sir I have made my report to .the president and secretary, which will be adopted. That report that the experiment station be located on the plat assigned by your former governisent for the experiment station. The 220 acres, a part of which has been set aside by proclamation of President McKinley, we will try to recover. I have recoatmended that the director be appointed, which will be done, iauaediately. He will probably be there ts take charge before the begianiag of the next year. He will clear the grounds, erect the buildings and get ready for the TTisiisTrr of his staff, which will follow as soon a Is ha everything is readiness. -I hav also recommended that Governor Dole, yourself and th of publJc lands (Mr. Brown) K an advisory council to the director, the derails of which will be attended to in a few weks. I think in a few months: yon wiirhav a fully equipped experiment station right at your doors. We are now hunting for a suitable director. wa:ca i am sorry to say ts no easy matter. "We are under many obligations to you and Mr. Haugh for the seed wh'ca yoa had prepared for ns, and assure you that they are very highly appreciated here. "I have seen Secretary Wilson and Mr. Pincbot. the forester, and both have promised to send an expert foroter some time in Xovember. "I send you today a catalogue or year book of Audubon Park and will be clad to furnish you with anything therefrom that you do not possess and at the same time will be thankful for anything that you do not find in the catalogue, for our own collection. Very truly yours, "WM. a STUBBS. Director. LESLIE M'COMBE WILL 8TAY. Attachment Proceeding Stops Proposed Journey on Peking. J. Leslie McCombe. evangelist and sailors' friend, for profit only, intended to leave in the Pekinc todav for the cosat, hut on account of a little disagreement about a small sum of money with a man named Durrant the nemesis of all shipping masters will tarry here awhile. It seems that McCombe went good for the board bill of n young man who had been helping him in his evangelistic work among the sailors. The oung man was out of work and in the goodness of his heart the exhorter made himself liable for the joutli. As Durrant had not received any money for the keep of the young man either from McCombe or the recipient of the hospitality, he at Cached McCombe's baggage. Now Mc Combe will remain and fight the case. Inquiry Por Verigny. The state denartment at Washinglou forwarded a letter of inquiry from the editor of the Danske Stntskalendar of Copenhagen to Governor Dole concerning Charles de- Verigny, formerly minister of foreign affairs of Hawaii. was at of Hawaiian foreign affairs twenty-five or thirty years ago under the monarchy. The last heard of him he was traveling in France $ Marshall's Fight. A petition for a writ of liabeas corpus will be to Judge Estee today in the case of William Marshall, in whose case a decision was rendered on Tuesday by the court. Two points will be made in the petition. One that the defendant Marshall was not indicted by a grand jury and the ether that he was not convicted by a unanimous verdict of twelve men. Wants a Paymaster. Captain Merry, commandant of the navy station here, has made application to have a paymaster appointed for duty here. The many friends of Paymaster Stanton, so well and favorably known here, are in hopes he may get the job. , Arrest of a Deputy Sheriff is Ordered Ho is Charged with Having Illegally Collected Money From Merchants. Deputy Sheriff IL Waialeale of Kbloa. Kauai, has apparently allowed his cupidity to overcome his sense and will be called to account. That is. he will be called -to account if High Sheriff A. M. Brown executes the orders of Attorney General Dole. The attorney general instructed the high sheriff lasr Tuesday to arrest and prosecute him. The charges are that this subordinate of the high sheriff mulcted the Chinese and Japanese storekeepers on Kauai. Under the guise of granting them licenses he collected 214 that the attorney general knows of, but the limits of the deputy's alleged frauds are not known. Instead of giving a license for the moneys taken, Waialeale is said to have merely issued receipts. The information. leading to the steps taken to apprehend the deputy, was placed before the executive council at the meeting of that body last Monday. The names of the parties imposed upon by the officials were not given, but the-sources are described as authentic. Waialeale is a candidate on the republican and on the citizens' ticket for representatie in the territorial legislature from the Sixth district. The circumstances were reported at republican headquarters last eight, but the executive committee did not consider the matter at its meeting. The fact that the time has passed for filing nominations will prevent any movement for the naming of a substitute on the ticket. It is probable, however, tnat the central committee will take some action disclaiming Waialeale's candidacy. Mr. Waialeale was at one time a member of the Honolulu police force. Dr. B. F. Sandow. republican committeeman on Kauai, will be requested to make a report on the matter for the guidance of the territorial executive committee. F. J. Church and Misa Elizabeth Stcyne were married last evening nt the Waikiki residence of W. R. Castle.

WgmBMEmAMaaalamKSAiA.BrWteSSC TERRITORY M P1Y FOR STAMPS Uncle Sam JSTot Liable for Those Issued by Hawaii. SO 10US k LEGAL ADVISER OPINION OF ASSISTANT ATTORNEY GENEBAL TYNES UPON THE SUBJECT. He Says the Territorial Treasury Beceivod the 3foney and Therefore Should Heinburso Postmasters. The impression that in these islands would be. reimbursed by the United States for all stamps in their possession June 14. lOOOt. is erroneous. Uncle Sam will not stand for a graft of that wjrt from hts baby territory. H is not out looking for cold bricks. If postmasters are to be reimbursed it will be by the Territory of Hawaii. The authorities at Washington act on the presumption that the postmasters" money paid for stamps is lying In the vaults of the territorial rreaaury and aptly suggest that it should be drawn upon to iay posmasters for unused Hawaiian stamps in the hands of Hawaiian postmasters when the islands were made into a territory of the United States last June. The following letter was received from Third Assistant Postmaster General Madden by Governor Dole yesterday : 'You are hereby informed that notice has been sent to postmasters of Ibe Territory of Hawaii who have remitted the stock of stamped paper ou hand in their respective otfices at the close of business on June 13. U90. to this office for cancellation; that under the proxlsibns of the act of congress entitled. 'An act to provide a government for the Territory of Hawaii. according to a recent opinion of the assistant attorney general for the postoffice department, no credit ,can be allowed them, and it is presumed you will make some arrangement for their reimbursement." The assistant inmmnster general enclosed the opinion of Assistaut Attorney General Tyner. which recites : "At the time of tho passage of tlie act of April 30. 1000, congress was the provisional government of was conducting an independent postal service, in connection with which postage stamps had been issued-and that souic oi mos,' stamps would remain unsold in postoffices nt the tim tho postal service was to be axsutiicd by the United States. Provision was made for the destruction of these stamp under the direction of the postmaster geneial of the United State. -Why? Because the last clause of section 00 provided that the stamps theretofore sold at Hawaiian postollices should be accepted by the United States for postage, and to have permitted Hie stock in th hand of the Hawaiian government to remain nndestroyed would have opened the door to the exact condition that confronts In other wordi this stock of the post-office department of Hawaii might hav? reached the hands of private persons who would have claimed its redemption in obligations of the United State. "If congress had intended to reimburse these postmasters out of fund from the United States treasury it could have said that the Hawaiian government should pass oxer to the treasurer of the United States the moneys collected from postmasters for stock issued to them, and that the United States would under!., take to settle ihese balances with thr persons who had been iwstmasters ; but they did no such thing. Iie Uepu'alic of Hawaii, or the provisional government, has received the face value of evry stamp issued to the postmaster and thU money is now in the treasury of Hawaii, as provided in the Organic Act;" Th Hawaiian government rendered no service for this money, and why should the territory retain the same and ask the postoffice department of the United Stat to settle its obligations with its postmasters? "With respect to the sidmp sold by the Hawaiian government to individuals, which the United States agrees to aeopt as postage, the conditions arc different. Th United State- has assumed the privileges and obligations of the postal service of Hawaii, and one of thos obligations is to tranrfirt malt matter in the ame mannvr a the Hawaiian postal es tablishment would have done and to ac cept in payment postage stamp sold to the public at Hawaiian postofSces. The conclusion is inevitable that congress Intended the provisional government to settle accounts with it postmasters up to the time the United States ahould take charge of the postal establishment. "If the Territory of Hawaii cannot, refund, out of the moneys in iw ' ury. received from the provisional government, the amounts paid by postmasters for stamps theu it should ask for the authority to do so. for there is no reason to my mind why the Territory of na'wait should retain this money. The above informtioa has bn nt to all postmasters in tht? islands. How- pver, a number of them hail, forwarded their Hawaiian postage stamps to Wash ington with the idea that thy would be reimbursed froui that quarter. Such . stamx at Washington will be destroyed" and certificates of the amounts and oamtt of postmaster sent to the territorial government, to which the postmaster will hae to look for pay. Under the old system in these islands each postmaster paid cash for his stamps, hence all that were in the hand-s of postmasters Jane 1!. lOflO. rrpreMint jo much cold cash out of band. These individuals will now look to the territorial government for reimbursement. None of the postoJEce officials seu by The Republican representative Inst night could give any Idea as to the amount of stamps outstanding for which the, territorv ja liable. r .
