These questions were heard nil over

Huis Feel They Have
Been Slighted By
"Tho Hawaliaus will only be too
glad to help entertain tho officers nnd
men of tho fleet when It gets horo,"
wild Sam Dwlght, president of tho
Hul Olwl, this morning.
"Personally," continued ho, "I am
in favor of giving; r Hnwntlnn luau to
tho men ufter.they l.avo arrived here.
Tho question of gltl.ig a luau by tlio
hul it not for mo to decido ono wuy
or the other, it hns to bo dlscusBcd
and decided on by all tho members, or
tho majority of tho Hul. I have been
uppronchod by a certain gentleman
who asked m what I thought of giv
ing luaus by tho Hawaiian societies.
I told him that I was personally In
favor of doing so. Of courso, 1 cannot
do anything, nor can 1 properly lay
the matter before tho Hal, without
first receiving a written request from
tho fleet committee."
Another gentleman who was near
by stated that the native llawallans
wero qidto omitted by tho Fleet Com
mittee. There are, of course, a good
many of them on vnrlotis committees,
but tho luau affairs and the hnokupu
proposition had not been quite satis
factorily explained to them. Tho Hut
Poola, it Is said, Is ylUlng to do Its
bIiiiiu In tho entortalnment of the fleet,
but no offlclnl communication has
been submitted to them.
A certain Hawaiian society of wo
men Is ever prepared to render assist
ance towards decorating tho luau
tablCB, etc., but no word has been sont
to them. Tho ladles do not want to
butt In unless requested so to do, and
tho whole tiling is to them a mystory.
They are In tho dark and uru simply
waiting to see when tho fleet nets In.
