Secretary Says Gets Impres
sion Here Administration
Did Not Confide
Secretary Fisher put it squarely up
to Governor Frear this morning whe
ther or not the administration has
taken the people of Hawaii sufficient
ly Into its confidence.
He did not press the governor for a
yes or no Answer, but at three distinct
times during the morning's hearing
the secretary commented enrphatkal-lj-
and significantly upon the appar
ent fact that homesteading has been
carried on In Hawaii wjthout enough
advance publicity of the government's
The comments from Mr. Fisher rwere
made . from time to time during' - the
course of the statement that Gorernor
Frear gave, a continuance of the ex
ecutive's statement of yesterday. To
day the statement turned more di
rectly upon the specific complaints
by ' the delegate of failure or partial
failure of the administration to en
courage, homesteading v in certain
named groups of lands. It was . ; in
connection with the advertising , and
opening of these homesteads that 'the
secretary asked the governor if he
'considered enough publicity has been
given to the plans of the land com-
. "I. have found a good deal of criti
cism ; of tee governments policy In
this regard.', said Mr. Fisher, rrhere
' seems to be some disaffection largely
because the people couldn't get the in
formation they wanted on public lands.
Do youtthink they could get ltr : ,
.! The . governor replied that hie
thought as a '.rule the officials ' have
been careful" to reply to all applicants,
though perhaps three or: four might
have been overlooked, and the secre-
tary '. said bis Impression is ; that he
has heard of considerably more than
three of four during his present In
vestigation. Tm left with the im
pression on my mind that there were
more than three or four," he stated.
Later, on" the same subject, he asked
Frear; "Isn't It true that you issue
an order,-known of course to the of
ficers," but -not to the ; public except
as they happen to learn t?" He ask.
ed Frear what, public notice was giv
en, and Frear said t&at besides the
news given in 4the public' press,,. ad
vertisements were inserted in the pa
pers. Mr.- Fisher objected that, these
advertisements were "after the survey
of the ilots and when "the government
was almost ready to open them to,en
try. , , "That's pretty far down dn . the
game, isn't it?" he asked i pointedly.
"Isn't there some public center where
the notices can be put Op earlier?"
Fisher Tf H Impression. .
. Be com In r still more emphatic, he
aid: wIget the impression that
there's; a little feeling on the part of
the public that they arent taken into
the confidence of the administration.
that they think they are always a lit
tie behind in the game, and that there
Is somebody; else who gets advance
information or somebody woo gets
there first. . They feel that they
haven't a fair show."
Governor Frear admitted that there
is a feeling of that kind, but defend
ed his subordinates from any serious
negligence 'In JeaUng with home
During the morning the secretary
went into the issuance of water II
cense to a considerable degree, evl
dently trying to find out whether or
not it "Is public policy to have the
executive handle the licenses while
the land board handles land matters
in its jurisdiction.
oSmall Audience Today.
Only a small audience, of not more
than a score was present when the
hearing began this morning.
Governor Frear was immediately
recalled to (he ' witness chair," and
Attorney Olson, before the Governor
resumed his talk, handed the Secre
tary a copy of the contract which

lands in that city for terminal pur
After rearing the reservation shown
therein the Secretary remarked:
That is a very good reservation;
much better than the previous one
we have seen."

$2,000 NOW IN FUND FOR GIFT TO DUKE; MORE COMING
. . .
Duke Kahanamoku wants to tajte a trip to Hawaii and Maui to give
free exhibitions of swimming for the people of those islands. Expressing
his appreciation of their generosity in contributing to the Duke Kahanamoku-fund,
he said this afternoon that he would like to give them some
thing in return, and could think of nothing that would please them more
than to see him in action in the water.
W. T. Rawlins, chairman of the committee having the fund in charge,
says he Is confident the tour can be arranged. The details will be com
pleted within a few days.
The fund, by the way, has reached an aggregate of about $2,000. Raw
lins says he hopes to be able to increase this by $500 more, to purchase a
home at Waikiki beach for the young champion.
Duke announces his indention to remain in the Islands, and wants to
lead a team of Hawaiian swimmers and divers to the Panama-Pacific Ex
