To Whom It May Concern:
The Territory of Hawaii has been
able to sell $200,000 of the proposed
4 percent loan of $1,500,000.
It takes upwards of four months to
go through the process of preparing
for and presenting a loan. These are
times when financial and other situa
tions change from day to day so there
is no counting on the future.
As per our laws and preparation,
the Treasurer of the Territory of Ha
waii can, at private sale, dispose of
$1,300,000 of 4 percent per annum
bonds at $98.04 per $100.00 bonds.
Of this bond balance of $1,300,000,
this sum approximately applies to the
various islands as follows:
Hawaii $ 405,000.00
It is up to the people of each of
these Islands to purchase each Its
quota of bonds receiving a guarantee
that the money will be spent on each
island, in full or pro rata, to its sub
scriptions. It is plainly a case of put up the
money, of which there is plenty, or
going without the improvements.
The $200,000 will be principally
spent on items that are in the interest
of and to the advantage of the whole
By direction of the Governor,
HENRY C. HAPAI,
Acting Treasurer of the Territory
