tsAJ Chief Bepuiy Hslph . Johnstone,
whd hat behn ,ln the Internal revenue
sc'rvlce iu Honalulu for , the past fif
teen years, yrsterday- terminated his
en necio .with-, the service when he
presented hit resignation to the newly
appointed' tolleetoY, ' Colonel Howard
Hathaway of ' Virginia and V Everett,
Washington. -In' future he is to be
associated with E. R. Cameron under
the name, Cameron eV Johnstone, tax
experts. ' ; -' ;i
As acting collector, Johnstone be
came the real head of the department
on the tlenth of the former collector,
John F. Haley, several months ago. It
Is stated that ' throughout 'the entire
Nation he is the only .Republican who
was retained in an executive position
in this branch of the revenue service.
It ia frankly admitted that ha held this
Unique "p't'on through abeer . merit.
His long service snd intirnate. connec
tion with all the ramifications of reve
nue collections ia the Territory, as well
as close study of laws and rulings of
ids treasury department, equipped him
with qualifications possessed probably
I by no other man in the Territory.
Although Johnstone haa fuTlv auali
fled in every particular la the evea ot
officialdom at Washington and in his
ueaiings -.t with individuals nd - flrnrs
aere, his. tenure of office in the ser
vice In any capacity Was frankly' f e-
Kuj-uru as a noooiiui tnmg. , xonples
are not lacking in UonoJulo that urei
sure of politics takfs no. accovfit of
man's qualifications or record. ;
' Reluctantly Johnstone yejrterday ad
mitted that this considers! ion was as
important factor in determining him to
leave the- service.- Shortly after the
death of the former collector, indivi
duals who had long had dealing with
the office -of the 'internal-revenue col
lector, recognising. Johnstone's merits,
sought to-set ia motion a movement to
nave nun:. appointed collector..' It was
taea thought that 'his, peculiar quali
fications for the office aad the
in which' he was held generally through-
vm ne aormory. would furnish suffici
ent basis upon which to place a request
wuu. me -jiowers mat be at Washing
ton foe his appointment,' j .
Discouraged More-. . t
' More dbsmailt 6f he trend of affair
in the matter of governmental appoint-1M-
th!an those, yvko appertd this
purpose, Johnstone discouraged it. Al
though it was arged. that hia, appoint
ment here would satisfy all degrees of
poJiticalv.bcM, : that. Democrats, as
well as Republicans. V nfiwintr lh. mam.
would approve-. auchr an appointment'
Johnstone" himself ; smilingly said no.
"They -Wt do, thUg,: that Way at
Washington,'' he told.a friehd at the
Wany whq had taken no particulai
i.-ri in ine movement at that time
held to the belief that' Johnstone would
be- ohosen anyway on merit -alone, that
Washington would have to recognize
his abilities and give him-the appoint
ment, .whter hia political faith. Thii
ueuei grewi stronger as the months pass
' u successor lor ilaiey - wrai
named. ,. ' .. , ....-.'., . ; ,t r-.iW . t
The appointment of Colonel Hath
away, announced a, week- ago by. The
Aavertiser, came s a -real shock to
many, but . Johnstone Vwaa. not among
that number. Whether-.! the
of evehta he. would have, retained the
place he has.hald ao long, that of chief
ui-puiy.-n inp omce, could never at any
time be resarded as more than a nn.
tion of doubt. Itv followed naturally
l"M "B quit,. ,
(Wrthlii the -fifteen years I have
worked" for the eovernmeat I have de
clined a number of -openings that have
presented themselves from, i time, to
Umi,'' Johnstone-eaiT yesterday. H
sisneu .rerieeuveiy.r sou seo I war
a good .deal younser their: I had dif
feient ideas abont how faithful scrvu-.e
might be rewarded, ,' . Ithouirht- the
thing I held eventually must work out-
better tnan tpe tniaga pfferedt - . , , .
"My-idea then Was that.mise waa a
high duty I was' performing, for the
taxpayers. I waa fairly certain that
hard work and ' study and all those
things that make a man master of a
particular klnd'of jvork waa the thing
that meant success. I guess, too, that's
true -enough in the business world. But
business is npt poljtjes I began to un
derstand, that fact-after time.
"It's the way Die. gam is played.
I've heard' a surprising number of peo
ple express their views about the mattel
o this office. I really didn't J-ealUc
how many -were concerned about it aad
expected what I never did expect, that
I weulil 'go in as collector. : One thisg
sure,", and Johnstone grinned broadly
a he said it, " it suits me from the
ground up the way it has fallen out.
fr I'm trow sure- that I'm eatsrlngis
bigger and broader field, of service, d
will be more valuable to th ommunity
and It will pay me better aa well, )
"I want to state, this, however," he
nsjded. "I am leaving the- office with
the best feeling in th world fer those
I leave there -and tor my new, friend,
('wlonel Hathaway,. Probaldy.it is -needless

up for a now man. Any information
that I possess is to be at his service
at any time and I shall keep In elos
touch -with the -office, unoifaciuily, 1 ar
loag a the need xiata," -
"Not 'on of the hundreds of tax
.returns that have been sent into this
office," he declareil, "are correct,"
.While this ia true in eon action with
luw that have leen, In .eperaUon. for
some time, under, th multitude of pro

,. . :,.;
Hawaii will get 'what It needs In the
way of shipping tonnage to care for Its
eommerje,' despite whatever the L'sited
State (government requires on the At
lantic, in the opinion of W. H. Avery,
an official of the Toyo Kisen Kaisha
line, who is now in Honolulu in con
nection with the' business of his com
pany. Also, he is strongly of the opin
ion that the federal shipping board, at
Washington, ia very much concerned
about Hawaii, and will do it justice,
tempered by. other war necessities.
Mr. Avery is inclined to the belief
that the federal shipping board, with
the vast responsibilities placed upon it
and the urgent demand by the govern
ment for tonnage for government pur
poses on the Atlantic; is in the position
of a housewife just moving into a new
house with her new and old furniture
and because of many demands upon
her attention, is attending to the out
ride matters before getting - her own
" -us in order. Mr.. Avery, savs that
len the shipping board's own house
is put in order, some one will mske a
inquiry 'about Hawaii, among it per
sonnel, and the entire matter will be
settled at once..' '-..''' :
Also, some one will probably ask
"Why wasn't tbia dona . before f'.' an
indication' that even now 'Hawaii'
shipping problems could be settled. ' '
' The Japanese steamship company
representative leaves here early in Jan
nary for Haa Francisco" and Washing
ton and will appear before- the shipping
board to discuss matters affectinir his
own company, and the question of per
mits being given by the united Mates
Shipping Board to vessels of the T. K.
K. line to do business between Hawaii
and California. ; ' ' ' '' .
. His company does' not earn to re
ceive single permits for single trips,
but wants them for at least six months'
periods, in order that th proper and
adequate results may accrue, which, in
volves the opportunity a advertise
properly the fact that Jts boats are
carrying passengers and freight be
tween Honolulu and San Francisco un
der the .coastwise law suspension act.

.. Fred L. Walditntr. tendered his res
ignation yesterday as- a -regent' of th
College of Hawaii as a protest against
the action of the majority of the board
of regents In keeping as a teacher Misa
Maria Heuer, a German citiaen .who,
Mr. Waldron says, has. In, writing ax
pressed her disloyalty to the, Vited
States. v '- '- - '' "-'' .r -.'. - '
"I refuse to accept responsibility for
keeping' disloyal teacher in the col
lege faculty,", said Mr., Waldron last
nigit. - "There 'is at -least one teacher,
and perhaps two, who are disloyal to
the United State. We have the record
in writing over their own signatures.
I have insisted that Miss Heuer, who is
a German citisen, should be dismissed
from the faculty. - She has not been
dismissed and I can no longer remain
a member of the-board of regent.
"I consider thatf the influence of
pro-German' teachers add teachers who
express disloyalty to. the United Statea
cannot but be detrimental to the. pupils.
They are paid with federal mouejr aad
are federal employes,' and they should
be dismissed,. . ; r . -'
"Dr. Dean was quoted yesterday aa
saying that all the. members of the
faculty 6f the College of Hawaii are
loyal to the United States of . 'America.
I, cannot allow that statement to go
uncontradicted. 1 They .are not .all loyal.
"As for Dr. Dean himself,' he ap
parently is a pacifist. He does not he
lieve in .war,, and he place the. work
of the college above the interests of
the United tte-; .
"MUs Heuer ha stated, over her
own signature, and we have the .state
ment, that she is loyal to no country
that is, at war. .Th United State is
at war. Furthermore, ah i a German
