FRIDAY NOV 10 1899
WAIALTJA MATXEB ONOE MOBE
Soino of the subscribers to The
Independent have naked why this
paper dos not continue its fight in
the interest of the minority share
holders in the Waialua Agricultural
Company
Our only answer if that we made
the fight in defence of the said
ohareholders upon the supposition
that they would take the necessary
steps to carry the mattr into the
Courts whore it is very evident Mr
Dillingham is afraid to go
Any one who is at all intimate
with Mr Dillingham knows that in
his contention with Colonel Soper
he felt cocksure of winning out in
the Circuit Court and that ho nnvor
ponding the litigation disputed bis
liability for what are known as the
Honolulu subscriptions for the Wai
alua shares
After the decision of Judge Ferry
in wliioh Colonel Soper was sus
tained on every point Mr Dilling
ham teemed to have doubts about
the soundness of hiB contention and
of air things had nn Btomaoh for an
appeal to the Supreme Court
After pulling himself together Mr
Dillingham Ruddonly had an over
whelming sense of commiseration
for the subscribers to his allottmont
of shares and sought to quiet his
conscience by dumping his obliga
tions upon the company
Colonel Soper and his friends did
not care whoro the shares came from
no long as they were delivered nud
the consequence was that Mr Dil
lingham and the Colonel joined
forces for a demand for the shares
from the company
In this raid upoq the company the
only possible loeora were the share
holders who were mado to forego
their pro rata in the new issue
A proposition was made for the
minority shareholders to contribute
a dollar a Bhare from their holdings
mploy counsel and carry the matter
into the Courts Thii the minority
so far have declined to do One ex
cuse given being that when they
seek counsel tbey are met by the
assurance that the counsellors havo
been retained by representatives of
the majority shareholders
The Independent is advised that
the minority shareholders can secure
their rights by litigation and it is
hardly possible that all he members
of the legal profession will decline
to take up the case against the ma
jority ahareholdors who seem bound
to Mr Dillingham by eomo mys
terious tio
If shareholders who desire their
pro rata in the new issue of shares
are content to await n chango cf
Heart in Mr Dillingham they will
probably allow him to do so Surely
The Independent has in no way
failed in its duty to tho public
