Says W. O. Smith, Should
Take Lawyers Along
CONGRESS WILL ASK QUESTIONS
Hon. W. O, Smith, naked today whe
ther ho would consider going to Wash
ington as ouo of a delegation of Ho
nolulu business men to urge, the pos
tage of a bill setting aside 75 per cent,
of tho Federal revenuo derived from
Haw nil for local Improvements, had
tho following to say:
"1 will not say positively that I
Mould not go hut I do not see how I
can possibly arrange It. I'm pretty
miro that I cannot get away.
"I'm familiar with such work In
Washington and like to work In Wash
ington, but I do not seo how I could
inanago to go, Hhrwild I ho one chosen
as a member of tho delegation.
"There arc plenty of other men and
I think they could go.
"Why such men or Judge II. K. Coo
ler, A, a. M. Itobertson, W. A. Kin
ney and Lorrln Thurston would be ex
cellent men to send. I'm In favor of
Bending on a delegation. I think that
liy all means wo should send on men,
lint wo should ho careful, I think, to
i.eo that men who go aro thoroughly
Informed nndjircpared to nnswer tho
questions hound to bo put to them In
lefcrence to this matter of Federal rev
enuo being turned to local use.
"Wo should Bend, I think, at least
one man, with the rest, who Is thor
oughly Informed in regard to our land
system nnd laws, who is familiar with
the applications of the Organic Act,
nnd who Is versed in local administra
"When Hawaii asks for "5 per cent,
of the Federal revenue here. Congress
men nro naturally going to. flro a lot
of questions at the delegation, not
fool questions, cither. They will want
to know what the Territorial income
Is, why tho cost of government hero Is
as high as It Is; what our population
is our citizenship; what the per cap
ita cost of government is and how it
compares with other States and Terri
tories; what our general conditions
and prospects are. We want men who
can answer these questions understand

Ingly; to show why It Is Hawaii needs
the money; to show that It naturally
costs more to ran this government,
where tho Territory Includes n num
ber of Islands, each hnvlng to have Kb
own set of officers and administration,
ns compared to tho cost of government
In place whoro one set of officers, for
example, can handle an area several
times larger than these Hawaiian Isl
ands. "Itobertson, Cooper, Thurston or
Kinney would do splendidly. If they
would bo willing to go. A lawyer Is
needed In tho delegation. Tho men I
mention have n.i had great expcrlcnco
nnd aro perfectly Informed. Any one
cf them would he able to present a con
vincing argument to Congress.
"Mr. F. M. Hatch, now In Washing
ton, Is an excellent rcprescntntlvo of
Hawaii's interests, but for some tlmo
he has not devoted all his attention to
the dctnlls of local developments, hav
ing oeen oincrwiso engaged.
"I do not think It necessary that a
delegation from Honolulu Khould re
main In Washington throughout the
session. It would bo well, according
to my idea, for us to cable Hatch and
find out Just when the Congressional
tommlttec8 having Territorial matterJ
lu hand, are to meet; then let our del
egation bo on hand in time -to appeal
leforo thoso committees.
"It makes but little dltfcrcucc who
ther thrco or flvo or more men go on
to Washington, but 1 would BUggcst
that one of the committee bo such a
man as is perfectly familiar with all
details of local government, finances
and sociology. Let the others be bus
iness men. This is a most Important
matter and wo should lose no time.
Chiefly wo need men to go who can in
n practical business way show Con
gress that Hawaii Is entitled to that
lor which sho asks.

SUITS. In fact everything you can ask
That an Injunction was not Instituted '
to restrain Territorial Treasurer Camp
bell from leaving Hawaii with the new
$750,000 bond Issue, to effect its sale
In tho East. Is due to Senator McCand
lcss' conviction that halt a loaf Is bet
ter than no lont at all. I
When Treasurer Campbell got away
In the Ventura the whisper floated
around that it had been planned to lire-,
vent tho bonds leaving the country, by '
Injunction proceedings. i
Senator McCandlcss said this morn
ing when teen by a Uullctln man;
"Yes, It is a fact that we anticipated
getting out an Injunction to restrain
tho Treasurer from taking the bonds
out of. the Territory to sell them. !
"Hut I came to the conclusion, after
mature deliberation and consultation,
with my attorneys, that oven If the
Governor had Been fit to violate the!
law nnd Ignore the wishes of the Leg
islature by refusing to contract the
lonn provided for. that was no reason
why I should Reek to prevent tho going
into enect of what the Governor hail
faoreil. I realized that Injunction
proi codings might Indefinitely hold up
the loan benefits nbout to be realized.
Whllo I believe that the Governor did
wrong, that he violated the law In re
dining the appropriations under the
contemplated loan, I made up my mind
that I would not stand in the way of
tho realization of thoso appropriations
remaining nfter the cut mado by the
Oocrnor. It would mean a great hard
ship. I believe that half a loaf Is bet
ter than no loaf at all.
"Nevertheless we were prepared In
tlmo. had wo so decided, to bring In
junction proceedings In the Territorial
coons, guing io me u. a. uisinci
Court If necessary, to prevent the
bonds going out of the country."
"No he did not need to have gone
off secretly," continued tho Senator,
referring to the Treasurer. "We vvould
have let him go on.
"I can tell you, however, the matter
came very close to being' brought Into
"We thought of bringing injunction
against the Governor to prohibit the
Issuance of the $750,000 bonds. I am
quite sure that this could havo been
done, and that It would havo been suc
cessful. "As a matter of fact, I think that
the Improvements which the Governor
cut out are tho most Important ones,
and tho ones which tho people want
tho most, and which tho Legislature
wanted. Tho ones which the Governor
wants to put through are the ouea
whlih he himself wunted only; the
others aro tho ones which tho Leglsla
turo and the people wanted."
