to be In Washington for Few Weeks
In an Interview with a Bulletin
representative this afternoon, Mr.
W. O. Smith, on being questioned
in regard to his going to Wash
ington as a special agent for this
Govoruraqnt, said : "I have been
approached on this subject by
several paitics, who aro vory de
sirous that I should go to Wash
ington iu the near future as a
representative of tho Hawaiian
Government. I don't want to go
at all, and will not do bj if I ran
possibly help it. 1 Buould like
very much to visit tbe city of
Washington for a few weeks, but

is uncortain whether I will go or
not. No, 1 cannot say who would

Everything is uudecide t atproiout,

that thero was a rofunil to pay
