The communication follows:
"The department is in receipt of j

a resolution adopted by the mayor of

inflicts gross injustice upon them in a t
spirit out of keeping with American i

with utilizing their labor in promot- ;

ment will appreciate your action if
you will bring this view to the atten

Legislation Can't Act
"The department has no present
intention of establishing an intern
ment camp in Hawaii. It has recent
ly been called to the attention of the
department that the legislature of Ha
waii has been considering a bill to
provide for the internment of alien
enemies in that Territory. Congress
having long since acted upon this
finest ion and having entrusted to the
president the power of regulation and
internment of alien enemies, the legis

enact legistion of this character.

is thought by some that the appear
ance of Doctor Raymond in the field,
although running as an independent,
may have a similar effect.
The Maui medical rancher is be
lieved lo have received a big boost in
local Democratic circles through the
recent visit of the Secretary of the
Interior, and it is intimated that the
c.uiet tip has gone out that Secretary
Lane believes the only hope Dem
ocracy has here of being represented
by a man at Washington is by find
ing some candidate for congress oth
er than McCandless. That man, ac
cording to rumor, is going to be Ray
mond. It is known that Raymond had sev
eral close confabs with members of
the Lane party last week and that, he
was in consultation regularly with
many of the most influential of Ho
nolulu Democrats, so it may be taken
for granted that this announcement
of Doctor Raymond's aspiration to
lead the party in this fall's elections
will not come as any great surprise
to Bourbons outside of the McCand
less meal-ticket corral.
The Maui leader stands high at
Washington, where he is well known,
and it was confidently expected in
some rpiarters that he would bo nam
ed as the Governor. Until the advent
of McCarthy in the gubernatorial ring
the leading candidates under consid
eration in the department of the in
terior were Raymond and Hulchins.
Raymond is a scrapper and when
he enters the primary, McCandless
will know for the first time what it.
