KUIIIO-FREAR AFFAIR, A REAL FIGHT.
Until such time as the full details of the protest made by
Delegate Kuhio against the reappointment of Governor Frcar
arc made public, the most significant feature of the news
from the B u 1 1 c t i n's Washington correspondent published
in this issue, is that the Delegate has put himself fairly
and squarely into a finish fight.
Delegate Kuhio keeps his own counsels to such an extent
that he has not been generally credited with being entirely
serious in his promise to earn on .a vigorous contest against
the Governor. Although he stated on his return from Wash
ington that he had seen the P, esident and secured assur
ance of recognition for what he might have to say on the
Governorship, very few have felt that he would carry this
threat to the point where it would call for a show-down be
tween the Governor and himself.
But a show-down is what the present situation means. Mr.
Talt must decide between them.
The highest legislative officer of p Territory cannot attack
the highest executive officer with written and specific charges
without someone getting hurt.
The Delegate has by this step crossed the line that cre
ates a situation where either he or the Governor must win
out or he discredited.
This means naturally that Honolulu is in for a merry time
during the next three months or until such time as the Presi
dent sends the appointment ,of Hawaii's next Governor to the
Many have believed that this; affair would be a repetition
of the Kau incident when the Delegate called the Governor a
.short and ugly name and then got in line, took a Republican
nomination and helped elect a legislative ticket that sup
ported the Governor. The B u 1 1 c t i n has confessed to be
ing mystified as to what the Delegate was driving at anyway.
But all doubts arc dispelled. The Delegate was not mak
ing p bluff. He is in a fight up to his neck and jumped into
it with his eyes wide open, because lie has lived in Hawaii
long enough and served in Congress long enough, and has
enough of natural savvy to have a full comprehension of
what his action means.
Governor Frcar will probably have the support of the
vested interests because some of them are his enthusiastic
supporters and others have thus far tailed to propose any
one to take his place.
Delegate Kuhio will unquestionably have the support of
the Hawaiian-Americans,- and probably those who believe
that a more vigorously American Governor should preside
over the destinies of this 'Territory.
The general crowd will be ready to flock either way on the
news from Washington of the first impression the Delegate's
letter has made on the President.
On one point the Delegate has a"n advantage. He goes
before the administration at a time when it wants political
peace in all the outlying districts. To have a row on in one
of the new possessions at a tiriie'whcn the President and his
friends arc assembling the facts of a successful record for
campaign purposes, is not inclined to improve the temper of
the President and his adv:scr. Charges from a man who has
been so many times given the confidence of the people can
not be ignored, and all things being equal he is more likely to
dictate the terms of peace than a man appointed by the
President and who is 'reported to have once offered his
formal and definite resignation on account of the appoint
ment to the bench of a man whom the President found to
have popular support.
Like all propositions in Hawaii, the affair is many-sided.
II will be one of the greatest mixtures of business and poli
tics Hawaii has ever had, particularly on account of the fact
that this Territory is bound to figure prominently in maga
zine publications and in the. discussions in Congress that
have to do with the sugar tariff.
If the Governor had not stated in a set interview that he
would like a reappointment, one might expect him to say to
the President that he could hand over the worries and vexa
tions of office to another as soon as he pleased. Apparently
(he Governor prefers to make a fight for it. Such being the
case there is one coming.
