Hawaii's Bond Coin
Not Yet Available
There was a rumor In financial cir
cles this mornlnfg that the United
States Treasury would not redeem th.
14,000,000 of Hawaiian bonds until
September. As a Treasury agent was
expected to arrive In Honolulu yester
day to carry out this business, tho ru
mor was discouraging If not actually
disquieting. The distribution of the
capital represented by tho bonds lo
cally held has for some time been an
ticipated with gratification as promis
ing very matcrinl relief to the strln
gencwy of the money market.
Oenernl A. S. Hartwcll, who as Spe
ital Agent of the llepubllr of Hawaii
In Washington had worked for prompt
redemption of the bonds, wns sought as
one likely to throw light on the sub
ject. In response to Inquiries General
Hartwcll made a statement In sub
ttance as follows:
"It is Impossible to say whether tho
bonds will not bo redeemed until Sep
tember, or to fix any time when they
may he redeemed. The Coinage bill
has failed to pass Congress. So has th
resolution for the Immediate redemp
tion of the Hnwnllan bonds. After con
sultation with Secretary (lage and
other friends In Washington, I helped
to draft the resolution.
"Sinntor Daniels Introduced the
resolution. It was held up In the Sen
ate by Senator I'ettlgrcw, nnd In t In
House by Representative l.cnti.
