To a Bulletin reporter Mr. Achi

convention Monday night bad for
the Fifth District and bad for the

the conclusion that the participation
in politics by officials is bad in prin

in the next Territorial convention
of what we saw in the convention
last Monday night. I will print
literature and circulate it among the
Hawaiians throughout the Territory
in opposition to Territorial officials
having anything to do in Repub

a bad principle and should be stamp

Speaking more specifically, Mr.
Achi said: "In the convention
Monday, my own relative, Nahale,
of West Hawaii, vote.l four or five
proxies against 111c because he was
told to do so. Being an official
hnns-.'lf he had to do as he was told.
I was beaten and others in the Fifth
District were beaten because officiate
ordered it. The power ot the men
who have the appointment of sub
ordinates and the employment or"
men in public works is, enormous
and it should not be used to elevate
official bosses into political bosses.
It is bad for the party and I propose
to inaugurate a campaign that will
purify party politics."
Mr. Achi says he will remain in
the party and do all his fighting
within the party. 'If he fails to
purify party politics he will anyhow
rejnain loyal to the party a'nd keep
up the fight. He is making his
propaganda on the grounds of prin
