Letters From Washington Not
clined to Be Panicky.
Restatement of His Work There Planters
Not Disposed to Worry Ovr the Situa
tion ConQdeotlal Points Held.
Several telegrams and n letter
havo been rocoived by the Hnwai
inu PlaDtors' Association from
Mr. Eiuney, row acting as agent
and attorney for tho corporation
in "Washington. As tho Chamber
of Commerco seconded tho Asso
ciation in sending Mr. Kinney to
tho national capital, tho communi
cations have beon shown to the
officors of the former body.
Rumors having become lloated
to tho effect that Mr. Kinney's in
telligence was of a di-quiftting
naturo such, indeed, ns was dia
ble to impart a fieliug of panio in
Hawaiian commercial nnd indus
trial circles, a Bulletin reporter
wout forth to fish for some authen
tic information that would set the
rumors nt rest.
C. M. Cooke, vice president of
tho Planters' Association, was one
of tho first goutlemeu seen. He
had read Mr. Kiunoy'a letter
without noting anything in it that
ought necessarily to be kept
secret, luo telegrams and the
letter wero iu tho hands of 0.
Bolto the secretary, nnd, so far as
Mr. Cooko could judge, hr
had no objection to tho seo
retary's orally giving tho reporter
the gist of whut the letter con
Mr. Bolto was extremely buBy
whon called ou, but promised to
consult with mombors of tho
board as to giving out nuythinu
for publication. It was certainly
against the rules of tho Trustees
of tho Association to allow any
thing to be published without
genornl consent of tho members.
J. B. Atherton, president of tho
Chamber of Commerce and ex
president of tho Uawaiiau Plant
ers' Association, had not eoen the
letter nor oven been informed of
its coutonts, when first addressed
ou tho subject yostorday. This
fact of itself, it may bo said iu
passiug, was significant iu relntiou
to tho rumors iu question. Hud
tho advicos from Mr. Kinney
been startling to any degreo, Mr.
Athorton would havo been oue of
the first men in Honolulu to bo
apprised of their naturo.
With his novor-failing courtesy
nnd candor, Mr. Atherton prom
isod to act the letter and, if it con
tained auy nows for publication,
to lot tho roportor havo tho gist of
it. When neon in due time later,
Mr. Atherton stated that thero was
really nothing of an alarming
nnturo in Mr.Kiuney's dispatches.
lueir imormatlou was 111 aur.-e-
mont with what had already been
published ns prtss dispatcher
from Washington. Tho letter
had cortnin confidential inforraa
tion from tho attorney which
could not be givon uway for pub
lication. Mr. Hatch, who was in
company with Mr. Athorton at
this time, know from hie oxpe-
iionco in Washington tne injury
that might bo caused to the in
terests concorned by publishing
evorything tho confidential agent
communicated. Mr. Hatch as
sented to this remark.
Mr. Atherton further, with re
foronco to street talk nbout Mr.
Kinney's mission, ropoated what
had been publishod when tho
nttornoy was appointed. Mr.
Kinnoy had not boon sont to
work any eohomo, or to got any
thing in particular done on behalf
of tho bodies Bending him. He
was simply commissioned to bo in
Washington whilo legislation for
the Hawaiian Islands was being
oonsidored and perfected, to

While the deck itself wns not

which the rope that lrA the roller

that thenntive who had the end of.
