X&NTIPPE FALLS DOWN
IN THE POLICE COURT
A family row of unusual proportions
and abounding with fetching situations
was on the loarl at the police court yesterday.
The rehearsal was a life-like reproduction
of the brawl as it occurred
flast Sunday iu tbe Makiki ueighlorhool.

a Common law union. Some neighlors
paid them a visit Sunday, taking along
a half gallon of wine. Libations to Bacchus
clmsed each other until the wine was
gone. Kamai Klkoo arose in wrath
against her somnolent lord. She scratched
his face, chewed his thumb, cracked
bottles over his head and danced the hula
over his prostrate form. The piece was
a howling success as produced on the Makiki
lawn and attracted a full house.
When it was all over the leading lady.
who appeared in the role of a Tanttppian
virago, had her consort arrested on the
charge of assault and tottery. The case
failed to stick and the meek and much
Maelia was acquitted. A return

PRINCE Dll OFF
Went "by the Waialeale
With Party Yesterday.
WILL RETUBN HOME ON SUNDAY
VERY FINE MEETING AT THE
HONOLUXTJ IRON WORKS
Independents March and Stand in
Slush and Rain at Emma
Park A Strong Meeting.
Prince David and party have gone to
Maui on a spell-binding tour. They left
last evening in the Waialeale after holding
an impromptu mass meeting at the
wharf. The steamer was prettily decorated
for the occasion and the band was
present to play off the departing democrats.
Colonel C. J. McCarthy, a little
while lR'fore the vessel sailed, appeared
on the upper deck and announced that
before the steamer departed the crowd
would have the opi&rtuuity of listening
to a few shoit speeches. He then introduced
E. K. Lilikalnni, who addressed
the crowd in Hawaiian, much to the delight
of the listeners. Following him J.
M. Sims of Kauai spoke in English. His
was the same old song alnjut what the
democratic party had done for
and Hawaii and he announced that
as the next president of the United
States would be William J. Bryan, there
was no doubt in his mind but that the
next governor of the territory would lie
David Kawananakoa. This declaration
was met with tumultous applause from
the people on the steamer. Sims hauled
the leaders of the independent party over
the coals and told how Wilikoki had
made a failure of everything he had
ever gone into. Then he touched George
Markhnm up a hit and Sam I'arker also
came in for a few bouquets.
John E. Bush followed with au address
in Hawaiian. His remarks were
about the same as he has delivered heretofore,
except that he failed to tell how
lie had been seized by the back of the
breeches and the scruff of the neck and
cascaded into the full enjoyment of
American citizenship without his. consent.
Tom Clarke, the favorite speaker of the
Ilawaiians. then prepared the way for
the coming of Prince David, who ujion
arrival was received with loud cheering,
lie mounted the deck and with head
bared spoke earnestly for a few minutes
and at the conclusion of his talk thee
were many cheers and the steamer bgan
to pull away from the wharf. As slip
moved slowly out the band played "Hawaii
Pono." then "The Star Spangled
Banner." and then there was more cheering
and the crowd dispersed.
The Waialeale will first touch at
and pick np the Maui candidates,
whoill join the party and go to liana.
Prince David, who promised to speak
along the coast, had been unable to do so
when last in Maui, and his trip there .t
this time is to fulfill his promise. From
liana to Lnhaina stops vjill be made.
At the latter place E. B. McClanahan
and John Wise will join the Virty. They
will come from Hawaii and leave the
steamer at Wailuku and work overland
to wheie the prince will be met. Taking
the steamer at Lahaina. the whole
party will go to Molokai and return here
The party which left yesterday consists
of Prince David, Tom Clarke. Chas.
C'reighton. L. I). Timmous. F. W. Weed.
Albert Nawahi E. K. Lilikalani. H. I
Colburn and Adrian Closes. The
club, composed of J. Shaw. Kia
Ben Waiwaiole and Ben Jones,
accompanied the party to furnish music.
The independent home rule party had
a creditable parade and a very large
meeting last evening. It was a large
and an enthusiastic gatheihig. Moes
presided, but Jupiter Pluvius fiually
of the meeting, brutally breaking
into Mr. Wilcox's sieech. The principal
sjeakers were John Emmeluth and
Wilcox, though Mrs. Kalankalani also
amied spice. She contended that the
women should make their men folks vote
the independent ticket. The lady so excited
Emmeluth that he arose to crown
her with a home rule ribband, .but Instead
of fastening it on her forehead,
got it around her neck after the fashion
of a hangman's nooe. to the amuexcnt
of the crowd. "Wilcox had barely; begun
speaking when the heavens opened and
there was a tremendous downpour. In
no sense was the meeting a failure, however.
It showed the managers of the
other two parties that the independents
will have to be reckoned with in the pending
contest. TJie managers -who fall ta
do so are not on to their jobs."
At the Honolulu Iron works meeting
lat evening, opened at S:S0. there were

Such the View of W. 0. Smith,
Former Attorney General of
Hawaii Evilo of Proposed
"It would be inexpedient and unsafe
to extend the time for voting on electio'i
day beyond the hour of ." o'clock, as provided
by law." These were the wonte
of William O. Smith, former attorney
general of Hawaii, who has been looking
up the. law relative to the announced
determination of Secretary Cooper io
keep the polN open as long as voters
"There have been cases." continued
Mr. Smith, "where polls were kept oien
a few minutes for the accommodation
of a few in which the result was not
affected by the number of votes cast after
hours. Such action was, not held to invalidate
the election. As a general thing
the requirement have to le followed to
"The rule seems to run through all
the authorities in regard to the effect
of irregularities of any kind and how far
such irregularities would go toward rendering
the election void is that slight
and uuim'iortant acts not affectinc the
result are iwrmissable. Keeping the
polls open does not invalidate the election
unless enough votes are cast after
the hour of to change the result.
"But it is a very unsafe thing to do.
especially, for instance, in one polling
place when the others are closed.
jwse as an illustration that one place is
kept open until midnight while the others
are closed and the result from those
that are closed i known. It would
open a door for fraud in that it would
make it possible to change the entire result
by activity after hours.
On tbe other hand, the statute provides
for only three shelves or compartments
in each polling place. Still it becomes
manifest that with this number t
may be impossible for all voters to have
time to cast their ballots. It would seem
that if any one or more shelves be put
in. in order to afford necessary accommodations
and all other requirements of the
be observed such action would
probably not reader the election Told.
To increase the number of shelves is In
my opinion safer than keeping open after
the time set by law, for closinz. Tbe
clause aKut the shelves I rejeard as more
directory than mandatory. The law sets
forth that tbe voter must register, that
he ciat be a citizen, that he must be of
age the are mandatory. The details
of carrying on the election are isorw

WORK ON BUILDINGS
Carpenters Strike for
an Eight Hour
NEGOTIATING WITH CONTRACTORS
THE BOSSES SAY WAIT UNTIL
THE FIRST OF THE
Union Meets Tonight and May-Order
Formal Lockout Calling
on Plumbers and Painters
They do not call it a strike, but the
12ti members of the local carpenter"
union did not go to work yoterday morning.
Tonight the carpenters will have a
meeting iu their rooms on Kiug street
and if thier terms are not met or a compromise
effected a formal strike will be
declared and ' official invitations sent to
the painters and plumbers to join them.
The situation is as follows: Iist
August the carpenters of Honolulu organized
and applied for a charter in the
United Brotherhood of Carpenters and
Joiners of America. The charier has
not yet arrived, but the knights of the
hammer and saw have au organization
that works well, charter or no charter.
I.at August the carpenters decided to
move for an eight-hour day. They gave
notice through the newspapers that they
wouiit demand the eight-hour day on November
1. Yesterday morning they carried
this notice into effect by walking
v Besides the 1-o members of the union
a number of other carpenters quit, causing
a suspension of the building industry
in all parts of the city.
The contractors or loss carpenters say
they faxorhe eight-hour day. but that
they do not -want -it to take effect until
after the completion of present contracts
made ou the nine-hour day
basis. ' They held a meeting Wednesday
at which about twenty of
the leading builders were present.
They discussed the situation and sent a
written communication to the careuters
agreeing to come to the eight-hour day
on January 1. The regular meeting of
the carpenters will be held tonight and
their answer to this proposition will be
drafted. Their reply will be read at a
meeting of the contractors tomorrow.
Yesterday at noon the contractors held
a meeting at the Chamlier of Commerce
.rooms. The doors were closed against
reporters, but their proceedings were
duly reported. The numlwr of hours that
should constitute a working day was discussed
with vigor. The stand taken by
the carpenters was alo discussed and
viewed humorously, seriously, angrilv
and tearfully. The consensus of opinion
among the contractors was that eight
hours should constitute a day's work.
There was also a spirit of liberality iu
some of the speeches which at least
A motion was made to submit a new
proposition to the carpenters, fixing
1 as the date for the shorter day
to take effect. The vote on this, including
the vote of Chairman Lucas, was
0 to 0. Peter High and the firm of
Campbell & Pettus took the most pronounced
stand against the carienters
union. The latter firm came into lin.
however, when the vote was taken fixing
January 1 as the date. This proiosition
carried almost unanimously. Peter Hig"i
fought the projHition bitterly and
threatens to leave the organization and
hire Chinese rather than recognize unionism
in any form.
From short talks with a number of
carpenters it was easily seen that a disposition
to meet half way is prevalent
among them. They will stub!ornly re-sit
the effort to postjione the eight-hour
day to the first of the year, but there a-a
many among them who will favor going
back to work if the contractors will a-cede
to their demands December 1.
A prominent contractor said to a Be-publican
rejorter last evening. "It is
only a question of getting out whole on
prwnt contracts which were made on
a I a! of a nine-hour day. -The contractors
are practically unanimously in
fa.vor of the eight-hour day. But we also
want a strict agreement that will bind
every contractor and place as all upon
the same basis."
Carpenters were busy at wort yesterday
on the E. O. Hall & Son building
at the corner of King and Fort street-!.
The building is not being built on the
contract system and the eight-hour demand
was complied with at once. It is
understood, nevertheless, that these ami
will be called off unless negotiations are
satisfactorily concluded with the contra

The celel ration of the installation of

For the past six months the barracks of
the local baud of street worshipers has
been in rather vramcd and out of the

ANOTHER LIGHT DAY IN

Theie was little business for the governor's
council to consider yesterday.
The matter of keeping the pollsopenafter

up and defended by Secretary Cooper.
The subject was discussed by the various
of the council. The opinion
seemed to prevail that Mr. Cooler's position
tliat the rules of election are more
or less flexible, is correct, It was felt,
however, that to allow the polls to be
kept open after o'clock would be ill-advised.
A letter was rend by J. A. McCandless
from Vincent & Belser asking for an extension
of time for completing: the sewer
system. No objtion was offered to the
