Llcclc. Kau.il. May 3. 1912.
Mr. V. R. Fiim lglon, Honolulu, T. II.
Dear Sir: I take this opportunity of expressing you my heartfelt llianks
and appreciation for llic manly acts and friendly conduct and stand you
Invc taken toward the Hawaiian.
May llic da) come when we individually and collectively be able to or
manage in a material way to reciprocate and sliow ou our gratefulness for
same. Yours very respectfully,
K. V. KINNEY.
To receive sincere testimonials of appreciation is alva)s pleasing, and this
letter offer an opportunity to say a word that may be timely.
'I he attitude of this paper toward the Hawaiians is part and parcel of its
policy toward all American citizens in this Territory. We believe every
American here lias a right to indeptnd-r.t thought and action. We have no
sympathy with any outfit that shirks its own civic responsibility by grouping
some of our fellow citizens as "d cd Kanakas" nor with others who
molly-coddle the Hawaiian and offer apologies for them which do not apply
to all American citizens
The citizens of tins Territory must stand or fall under the test of efficient
American citizenship In this test th; Hawaiian-American is certainly en
titled to fair plav. This of course throws on his shoulders a personal re
sponsibility to .mist in wording out a progressive destiny for the particular1
community in which he lives, and for the Territory as a whole. The citizens
of Hawaii irrespective of their race must work together for the general up
building of the whole Territory. If they don't do it, they'll go down in a
heap. For we not only have to meet the competition and problems of muted
races in our domestic administration but by virtue of our position as a Na
tional outpost and cross-roads of the traffic of the Pacific we arc forced into
greater responsibilities, wc must do more in a shorter time, and do it better,
than any other American community of the same size under the Flag.
This paper is satisfied that the men and the ability to perform these tasks
arc available. The problem is to get the combination working together
with a purpoe single to the performance of duty that is obvious.
The I lavvauan-Amcrican plays a most important part, for he, lifce all other
Americans, has got to make good, and wc believe he is doing it with stead
ily increasing success.
AN EXTRAORDINARY INTERVIEW.
Governor Frear evidently taking the say-so of the morning paper regard
ing the alleged secrecy of the recent meetings of the Oahu Loan Fund Com
mission, is quoted as making statements Concerning the workings of the Com
mission that would cause more than one man to quit such a public board.
Whether the Governor is correctly quoted, this paper is not informed, but
there is no doubt of bis misinformation concerning the secrecy of the last
meeting of the Commission. '1 he meeting of which the morning paper com
plains war not secret. The Bulletin had no difficulty in gaining all the
information desired regarding the session, and the door was open to the
press. The only possible legitimate complaint the morning paper can have,
is that it was not informed as to (he time and place of the session.
Naturally anything that the Governor says about being open and above
board in all matters having to do with public business is fraught with more
than ordinary interest.
The Governor's reputation for telling the public in clear-cut language Just
what he is doing; his rccbrd for uncvasivc and direct speech is so well
known, in fact he gets next to the people and lets them know so much of
the details of governmental programs, that a sermon preached to the Oahu
Loan Fund Commission through jjie columns of the morning paper is some
thing on the order of 'Well, draw )our own conclusions from your own
The interview published this morning, provided the Governor is correctly
quoted, indicates to the casual reader that the chief executive of the Terri
tory is very much out of touch with at least one of the very important pub
lic boards he has named, and it also suggests that he may sometimes talk
without being in full touch with the facts.
The incident appeals to a person uninitiated in the system under which
Territorial policies arc worked out, as showing a lack of cooperation in an
administration that has a great deal of very important work to do.
The morning paper from its comment seems to think the Oahu Loan
Fund Commission needs a guardian. Assuming this to be true, the Govern
or's interview proves that the guardian need not devote all of his time to the
members of the Commission.
After the foregoing was in lype the Governor gave a statement to the
Bulletin indicating that he was not cbrreclly quoted.
