All Ready to Give Their Plea
to Secretary of the
BACKING UP KUHIO CHARGES
Form Hui to Appeal for Their
"Rights" to Settle on Land
(From 'Wednesday's Advertiser.)
With the announcement that tlic
crowd had opened headquarters at
room 35 Young building jestcrdny,
came thu news that, under the- leadership
of a prominent local politician,
tho women of Hnwaii aro forming a
hui to "back up" Cupid's charges
against the Governor, when Secretary
of tho Interior Fisher reaches Honolulu.
Whether tho information wis inton
tionally allowed to "leak," or camo
out in Bpito of tho
crowd could not bo learned, but it was
assertained that for the last few dnys
every effort has been made to keep tho
formation of tho women's hui secret.
At all events the cars of Secretary of
tho Interior Fisher when ho arrives,
will be assailed by tho pleadings of
"tho poor" for tho land, which it will
bo nllcged has been withheld by a cruol
and hard-hearted territorial administration.
Tho moement has been engineered
bv a Hawaiian politician for
Hawaiian women. It is planned to
have an association wait upon tho
Bhortly after his arrival from
Washington. The organization is declared
as part of the general plan to
bolster up thu charges made against
by Delegate Kuhio.
May Meet Today.
A meeting of tho Hawaiian women's
association may be held today to further
perfect their organization, and additions
to tho list already in tho hands
of tho politician aro expected. Tho
movement was begun about six weeks
ago, and has been kept alie by frequent
mcejings and moro frequent canvassing
expeditions of tho man in
charge, whose motto is "The mro tho
When the movement was first launched
it was supposedly in tho intorost of
Hawaiian women who really had a do-
, Biro to go back to tho soil, build littlo
their families upon soil that thoy could
call their own. There were government
lands of this Island which wero considered
just nhnt they needed.
The politician, hoeer, yaa not content
with just a few names. Ho broadened
his activities and began to on-largo
tho membership. Gradually tho
secret leaked out that tho wholo proposition
was merely a plan to mako a
demonstration beforo Secretary Fisher,
to show him that hero wero fifty or
Hawaiian women, ploading
their right to obtain public lands upon
which they could build homes and get
away from tho tenements of tho city
into the pure air of tho country.
It would bo a .splendid stroke to sond
such n delegation of women to
the M'crctnry, that horo was a
sample of what Kuhio had been charging
against tho Governor for two or
thrco years. It would bo a public
demonstration of tho "fact" that the
people were pleading for homesteads,
and could not get them.
The homesteads theso veople arc sup
posed to want are in tho midst of the
fertile areas of Aica district and include
somo lands on which cauo is
grown by tho plantation.
Keop Plan "Secret,"

moment, went to such extremes in tho

expected to possess political power

ONION CROP FOR NEXT YEAR
A second crop four hundred times
larger than tho first of a product just
introduced is considered pretty good
commorcial agriculture. Thnt is just
what tho market superintendent's office
expects Hnwnii to do with Bermuda
onions: "With tho exception of n ton
of onions that may possibly bo shipped
down from Kauai the first commercial
feia tm -will lm lurl in Tlnwntt liv.
While thrco tons docs not look vory
imposing as tho 'sum of tho first crop,
every littlo onion which went to make
it up was worth its woight in gold to
tho Territory in tho lessons it taught
and tho examples which could bo drawn
from it. Tho only proof of this noeded
is one of tho many statements possible
through the experience of those three
tons, that onions will bring Hawaii
between $400 and $50p for ovory acre
planted in them. Five tons per aero
is thu estimate which is considered by
Mr. Wull to bo a conservative one.
Fifty carloads of onions expected
from Mexico, according to advices just
received by Mr. Wall,aro slow in making
an appearance in American markets
owing to the revolution, for bridges
have been burned and transportation
generally demoralized. Prices quoted at
San Francisco snow tho market to be
more than strong; tho crop in Toxns

by Mr. Wall was $2.25 per

RESIDENT OF MILWAUKEE DEFERS SOME

Constructive is tho criticism of
which David C. Bell, n wealthy
Milkaukcc resident who visited Honolulu
a few mouths ago, has sent in n

southern California. Ninety per cent,
of tho tourists praise tho Islands but
few BUiliciently nnnlyyo what they soo

counts, they fail to point out the features
that can bo improved upon.
Mr. Hell spent several months in the
Islands, nnd was eo pleased with his
visit thnt bo ordered a largo number of
slides of Hawaiian sconory to bo used
in talks which he proposes to mako
about Hawaii during his trnvols, and

PLAN FOB MERGED
I STILL DISCUSSED
Swanzy on Stand in Famous
Horner Case Old Documents
I (From Wednesday's Advertiser.)
, Tho fact thnt n combination of
and Hamnkun plantations is still
under discussion was brought out yes
. tcrdny in the cross-examination of F.
M. Swanzy, in Judge Robinson's court,
in the case of Homer vs. Horner.
Swanzy was mndo tho medium of tho
introduction of more documents, ono of
them showing that J. M. Horner &
Sons twelve yenrs ngo wroto to T. H.
Dnvies & Co., criticizing the manage-
I ment, and nsking for a change of
cy, nnd the other sliowlngih.o purchaso
by Davies & Co. of 12C2 shares of. tho
plantation, last December, with an attempted
understanding thnt tho firm bo
appointed agents, and be allowed to
narao the board of directors. H.
& Co. were tho agents.
Attorney F. E. Thompson asked a lot
of questions designed to show if
that Dayies and company had been
seeking for many Tears to cet control
of Kukaiau. Swanzy denied any effort
to buy, cither on bis part or on tho
part of his associates, and declared, on
the contrary, that both the Homers had
tried to sell to his firm.
Purchaso for $260,000.
As showing what happened in the
way of change of control, just prior to
the beginning of the litigation, tho following
letter of December 6, 1911, from
Thco. II. Davies & Co. to tbo Henry
Watcrkouso Trust Co., was put in evidence:
"Wo heroby confirm tho acccpfanco
by us of your offer of 1262 shares of
Kukaiau Plantation Co. stock for tho
sum of $200,000. It being understood
and agreed between us that the said
1202 shares convey to us twolvo liun
dred and sixty-two twenty-four bun
dredths interest in the Kukaiau Plan'
tation, the Kukaiau Mill and Landing
nnd tho Kukaiau Ranch. And it is further
understood and agreed between us
that prior to the payment by us or tho
purchase money you shall undortako on
behalf of your principals, tho owners
of the said 1202 shares of stock in the
Kukaiau Plantation Company to causo
to bo held a legal meeting of tho stockholders
of said Kukaiau .Plantation
Company, and havo elected at such
meeting such board of directors and officers
as we shall nominate, nnd to elect
us agents of the Kukaiau Plantation
Company and Ranch, and causo to bo
trnnsforred to us as such agents all tho
moneys and property belonging to and

A reply wrom Albert liornor, accept
that ho was willing" to certify that
there was no agreement, for n fitated
time, for II. Hackfcld & Co. to act as
agents for Kukaiau.
Might Have to Combine
"Tho plan discussed was and is, to
combine tho two plantations," said
Swanzy, referring to Kukaiau and
Hnmakua. Ho said thnt the schomo involved
the shutting down of ono 'of tho
mills and getting along with one set of
managers, lunas, etc. Ho had discussed
it with Mr. J. F. Hackfcld. Tho tariff
proposition had a bearing on it, in that
if the sugar tariff were cut off, some-of
the smaller plantations in the Islands
would find it necessary to combine
with bigger ones.
Swanzy continued to deny that his
firm had tried to buy Kukaiau. In answer
to Thompson's questions ho said
that ho had been influenced only very
slightly, in valuing Kukaiau, by tho
fact thnt it lay between two of his
The Old Complaint.
The old-time complaint rend in
denco showed J. M. Horner & Sons writing
in 1898 to Theo. II. Davies &, Co.
and asking them "to plcaso take
that the writers were dissatisfied
with their management. Tho letter ac
cused tho agency linn or not providing
nropcr inacliinory. and of manacinc tho
migar extraction for tho agents' benefit
rather than lor the plantation. "A
change Is hereby requested," said this
old lotter, "and wo hereby again noti
fy you that wo wish a new mm."
All this is n nart of tho effort to
show that Davies and company havo
been scheming Jo got control of Kukaiau.
The cross-examination of Mr.
Swanzy, who had been called out of
order so that ho might leave, was concluded
during tho afternoon, and Albert
Horn or, tho first witness in tho
case, has still to complete his testimony.
