existing appliances, but any extension
of them might run to much money.
Another question that ought not to he.
overlooked, is the affect that any con
siderable expenditure at either of
these points may have on the lar. er
rnd more vital enterprise at Nawlli
Mr. flbert Horner being called upon
aid that he concurrel with the con
tention that we hadn't Infonaailo i
enough at present to' come to any i".e.i-
lite and final conclusion. Of colu'sj,
he favored the Kapaa scheme; he
Vmsidered it entirely feasible an.l
even if It did cost a quarter of a mil
lion dollars, It would be a good invest
ment. The railroad freight from Ka
paa to Ahukini would certainly be at
loast a dollor a ton. There was every
assurance of 70,000 to 80,000 tons of
freight to be transported which would
give a generous return on $250,000.
The discussion circled around these
paints for some time, with ever increas
ing conviction that there was not
sufficient information at present. So
when the president pressed for some
concrete action, it was the sense of
the chamber that they were not in a
position to go farther than endorse
tho action of the Harbor Board in
making additional investigations.
Mr. Horner made a motion to the
effect that the chamber endorse the
action of the Harbou. Board in making
farther investigation as to the feasi
bility and fitness of both the Kapaa
and' Ahukini sites. The motion was
Mr. Broadbent moved that a letter
be addressed by the secretary to the
Lihue Plantation Company, asking
them what they have to offer to the
public in the way of establishing a
landing at Ahukini.
Mr. Broadbent said that there was
one more matter that he would like to
draw attention to before the meeting
closed, and that was tho matter of ex
changing Liberty Bonds for other
more or less undesirable securities.
He understood that there was more or
less of this sort of thing going on, es
pecially among simple people unfami
liar with these things.
It was a most unfortunate thing all
round to have good, safe bonds like
these paid for out of the fruits of
self denial and hard work traded off
for something that was of doubtful
yalue, or even manifestly fraudulent.
If they knew what they were doing,
and went into this sort of thing with
their eyes open and understanding
the risk involved, it wouldn't be so
bad. But to have simple, ignorant,
confiding people gulled and defrauded
was too bad, and measures of some
kind ought to be taken to prevent this
sort of thing.
Mr. Wishard said that the Federal
authorities did not approve of such
exchanges, except for such securities
as had the approvel of the National
Securities Committee. He understood
that legal provision had never been
made in the Territory against the sale
of fraudulent of worthless securities
such as known elsewhere as Blue
Sky Laws and ho thought this was
a matter to which the coming legisla
ture should give attention.
Mr. Cheatham thought that a cam
paign of education should bo under
taken to post people up in regard to
the matter and to warn them against
those unscrupulous financiers. lie
suggested that slides be prepared to
be exhibited at the moving picture
ohows, advising people to beware of
such unauthorized securities; th:.l
notices to the same effect be publish
ed in the Japanese and Portuguese
press; that notices be given in the
schools to the same effect; and tnut
four minute speakers be appointed to
talk along the same lines.
Mr. Walworth told of how very c n
sidfcisble sums had been taken from
the Filipinos for wild-cat enterpn..e.s

of leturn, and the victims had already,
within a few weeks, said good-byo to

A concrete motion, rather radical
in nature, was formulated and was on
tho point of passing when Mr. Brandt
suggested that this was a somewhat
delicate matter, involving important
business interests, and perhaps entire
ly legitimate business interests, and
that it would be well to go little
slow In tho matter.
The final outcome of the discussion
was that the whole matter was refer-!
red to a special committee, with the
understanding that the secretary
would write to U. S. District Attorney
Huher for information and advice on
the matter, and action be taken in
The meeting adjourned just as it
was time to turn on the lights. There
were some thirty-five or forty mem
bers in attendance and much interest
was shown throughout.
