The Honolulu Chamber
Secretary Brown, of the Hono
n o 1 ii 1 ti Chumlttr of Commerce
iloses a Jettcr on the subject of
the Convention as follows:
"We had a meeting of our Gen
eral Committee representing Oahu
this niornin? and all of the organi
zations backed me up in taking
over the Kinau for the trip and
arrangements are being made with
the Inter-Inland people to send her
up, leaving here about ten o'clock
on Snturday evening, September
25ih ond leaving there about eleven
o'clock on Monday evening, the
27th. so as to arrive back in Ho
nolulu in time for business Tues
"Some time back Mr. Paul Isen
berg, rerresenting Kauai, inti
mated that arrangements would be
made to haye us land at Ahukini
where the Kinau can go right in
to dock, and. take a plantation
train for Li hue in time for break
fast. I have heard nothing from '
him since as to whether or not
this arrangement has been perfect
ed. It would be very nice if it
could be, so as to .tvoid going a
shore at Nawiliwih in small boats.
If we go to the dock at Ahu
kini, we would naturally leavj
from the same place which would
permit of us leaving later than if
we boarded the steamer from small
boats at Nawiliwili. In the latt r
event it would be almost necessary
to leave very earlv on account of
the hazard that would attend tak
ing delegates out to sea in small
boats after night fall
"Just as soon as passible I will
send you a list of our delegates
and also names of the two men
who will handle subjects assigned
to this Chamber of Commerce."
At theend of next week the K
nan will leave Kauai for Honolulu
a day ahead of time (or Fridav),
so as to bring the Civic Conven
tion's party over Saturday night.
