ThisX ia the view expressed yester
day by J. A. lialch aad endorsed by
o'ber member of the Hawaiian Vlgt
lance Corp at Ita meeting yesterday
when the shooting of 8. J., Walker bv
"Captain.'' Henry A I lea waa dienusaed.
"I escribe toe murder to tbe neg
ligence of congress, of tbe attorney J
general, ana 1 1 . oar own local r4(irel
district attorney'! office aad thia will
not be the laat "hooting of alien en
emies. There will be more if an in
ternment ramp la- not provided here
tor men ef thie kind," fialoh added,
lilt OAcUla
"The officers of the law will not-act-private
citir.ens must. This it appar
eutly what the Vigilance Corps baa
com to believe."
It ii related at tbe meeting that
for week! Walker prated of nil pro
Herman sympathies, voiced hatred of
.tbe Hlars ami Stripes, aneered at a til
curse. I the American aoldlera. It waa
charged that hie ia not an iaolated raae
and thoee who bava come forward in
Allen 'a defense refer to a aeries of in
oideata In ' whu-b individuala have
shown themselves to be disloyal by
word and acta here and on other ia
lands. It la pointed out that these
thing) bava all been reported in one
way or another to official . charged
with enforcing lawa euacted to meet
rases uf the kind.
"What happened f" one man asked
yesterday, and then gave the answer.
"Nothing, just nothing. All the way
from Washington to Honolulu they
teem to think these traitors are
'harmless'. It 'a no wonder a loyal
private citir.cn reaches the point that
he fels there in nothing loft for him
to do but take the law into his own
hands."
QultkJy Oeta Ball
Murder in the first degree, the charge
necessarily laid against Captain Allen,
ordinarily ia regarded as an unballa
Me offense. It may not be doubted
that public sentiment as expressed on
all sldua yesterday enabled "Cap .
tain" Allen to preside before a great
admiring throng Inst night in hit lit
tel aoft drink atiud at Aala Park be
f .re which Buaday night he killed hu
man. "That is an indictment of our off!
rials," said a spectator who stood
watching the crowd about tha stand.
After "Captntii " Allen 'a bond in the
turn of $.1000 hail bern signed yeater
day by Fred L. Waldron and K. P.
Fogarty, Allen, who is a muu of aixty,
entered the office of Liquor I.ieena
In-rjiertor W. II. Hut ton who hna known
hi in for years. Ha quoted this little
vere to Mutton;
"Then bnrat your bare asunder,
"And let this pritouer free,
"That he may ting those hymns of
praise,
"Vhoae tonga of liberty."
Wins Sympathy
The first shock that the community
fi-K oyer the tragedy speedily grew
iuto a wave of sympathy for the slay
er when "Captain" Allen. 'a acts of
patriotism and his unflagging loyalty
were recalled and brought into compar
iaea with tike acta and words of the
man he kUied.
Out of the store of knowledge be
gained in the fifteen years he served
in the American navy. "Captain"
Allen has been giving matruetiona to
the Boy Scouts, implanting in the
youth of all the varied races that make
up the boy Scout organisation his own
oLi fashioned notions of patriotism.
The illustration that accompanies the
article ia a picture taken' goroe months
ago in the grounds of tha Capitol build
ing at a time when "Captain" Allen
waa teaching Troop IV how (hey tied
knot ia the navy and hew a life 11 ua
should be handled. Before the war
he might have been regarded aa a
harmless old gentleman who talked
too much aboat tha Hog and about
one's duty to bia country. Ilia habit
of raising his naval standard every
day over his little aoft drink stand
then might have been looked upon as
a foible. Iu-reeewt years his words
and arts have taken on a different
meaning, however.
I. W. W. Member
Walker haa been characterized aa a
fair sample of anarchist and thia sum-,
ming up of his character aeema to be
borne out by the papera the police un
earthed among hit effects. Que out
growth of the tragedy that may hava
its value is that it, has been learned
that the Industrial Workers of the
World, whose activities paralyzed in
dustry in Australia, and whose efforts
shut down tke great shipbuilding yards
at Han Francisco anil Heattle at a
time when ships were the moat urgeut
need of the Nation, are organized here
in Honolulu. Walker, hit papera show,
was a member of the I. W. W. in good
sluiidiiig.
All of two months ago Walker, was
openly expressing bis pro Oernian seuti
in euts uu.tlie streets to ahance cowers,

Hilo Alien Who Showed Disre

May Lose His Job Anyway
Oettleih Kruck, a machinist, and an
alien enemy who has been working at
the Hilo Iron Works hasn't got any
more job than a rabbit unless be kbeca
the Plug that he has scorned. That
much la certnin, says the Post-Herald
if April 1.1. 1 Kven should he snluto the
-(tares and Stripe under compulsion it
is more than likely that he will be sent
o oin his coentrymeu in the detention
imp on Maui.
Itsrk of tha ia a story of vibrnnt
Americanism among the workers em
nloyed by the big locil plant, and their
flat refusal to "work with any llun
any longer than is necessnry. " Inci
dentally tbe policy of the management
f the Iron Wlorks and the feelings of
the employes run hand in band.
Fries Illnesa
It all started many months ru,
about the time tho United States
threw herself Into the war against the
Hloiid Beasts, and it enme to a crisis
Inst Saturday morning when, with a
contemntuoua wave of bia hand Kruck
refused to stand at attention in honor
of Old (llory. and as a salute to the
cause of the United States. It is true
that he dul not have the nerve to come
out straight and declare himself but
claimed to have been overtaken with a
sudden illnesa, "somethln' the mutter
with my throat," he told the foreman.
Mr Whephcrd, "and I gotto go home,
uuij lie down."
This was shortly before nine o'clock,
mid Mr. Shepherd, unsuspecting at ti e
time, merely remarked, "You don't
look sick to me, but if yon don't feel
well, finish this bit of work you have
in hand, anj then you can go."
Shakes Fist at Flag
Kruck hurried through his assigned
tank nud at ten minutes to ten o 'cl.uk
hurriedly left the shops. Uue of the
employes of the works, D. A. White,
saw him hastening toward a taxi, ami
called to him, poiuting at the time to
the folds of the 1'lag flyiug above the
plant. It waa then that Kruck gave
himself away. With a contemptuous
gesture Kruck shook bis Ast at the
Klag, climbed into the taxi aud dis
appeared. Then tho wrath of the plnnt broke
uut. It got worse later in tho dm
when Ahin Ah Fook, timekeeper for
the office, saw Kruck up town, ''nil

I workers. "I fooled them good down
I there," he ia reported to have suul.
"l played sick for I wouldn't salute
their d d old flag."
I Hut not knowing what the manager
(had iu mind the employes of the Inni
Works took a different stand. In a
letter to Mr. Kussell they quietly in
' niste.l upon "the iinmediute dism .-sil
of Kruck," on the ground that "we
i are loyal American citixens and do not

That's where the mutter stands this
