Case Against Weinzheimer Scathingly
Presented, Investigation Comhriittfee
Named and Probe Will Sink Defcp
In Sure Hands '
(.liarycs of jiro-ticriviahi'ifTi and disloyalty, even more sen
sational than liad lccn promised, supported and substantiated
ly affidavits, were made by J. A. Halch, chairman of the dis
trict board of exemptions of the Territory, against L. YVeirti
heinicr, manager of the I'ioiteer Mill (."ompany, Limited, at
the annual meeting of the stockholders of the company yes
terday morning. ,
Considerable bitterness and acrimony was shown In the
course of the discussion which followed the presentation of the
charges, including a passage of words between J. A. Balch and
K. K. Hull, manager of Oahu plantation, in which the former
used the word "liar". This passage grew out of charges that
Weinzheimer "hoched der kaiser" in Bull's house after the
break in relations between the United States and Germany.
L. Weinzheimer, the accused manager of Pioneer Mill Com
pany, demanded a hearing and an opportunity to refute the
charges made against him.
A committee of five, consisting of II. P.. Cooper, A. L. Cas
tle, Albert Horner, W. L. Stanley and P.. W. Sutton, was
named to investigate the charges and report their findings and
the results of their investigations to the directors of the com
pany. This committee met and organized yesterday afternoon and
will pursue its investigations at once. It prepared a notice for
publication requesting all persons having knowledge of any
act of disloyalty on the part of Weinzheimer to submit the
same in writing ,to P.. W. Sutton, secretary of the committee,
before February 20, accompanied by the names and addresses
of supporting witnesses.
Intense interest centered About the
animal meeting of Pioneer Mill Com
pany, Limited, held nt tlm offices of H.
Hnrkfi-M 4 Co., ,-igcnts for tho com
pany, yesterday morning. Thn prom
ised charges against I,. Wcinr.heimer,
uinn.irji'r of the company's properties
nt Ijihniim, Maui, presented by J. A.
Patch, proved oven more sensational
and Hf art I i iii; than had been indicated
by Mr. Halch previously, nd were
substantiated by allidavits anil have re
sulted in an immediate investigation
which promises to be thorough and com'
plete. The personnel of the committee
is such that there is apparently, not Jha
rfrooteet' peambllityHhut tbb facta 'will
not be brought out.
Loyalty Sways Balch
In the presentation of i i h charges
Air. Halch showed that he is ileeply, dls
interestedly and patriotically interest
ed in the safeguarding of the Interests
of tlie I'nited Ktatcs and of the Terri
tory of lliivaii; is detennined iu his
own mind that Weinzheimer Is not a
Kiiitiililr man, by reason of his alleged
pro Kniscrisin, to handle the great busi
ness ent rusted to his eare. Criticism of
Mr. Hatch's methods and of language
was heard in some circles but there ap
peared to lie none who doubted for nn
instant that he was moved only by a
great spirit of loyalty in the course
which he pursued, a loyalty and an in
tensity which carried him forward
' throughout the whole proceedings and
exerted constant and overwhelming in
fluence upon him.
Among the unportaut charges which
Balch presented wm the allegation that
Weinzheimer had shown disloyalty to
the President in referring slightingly
to "some more of Wilson's notes" and
"It will he better for Wilson to keep
his nose out of It, because Oennany
would Just eat' the United States up."
In referring to the Lusltanla outrage
he is charged with haying said: "These
people are raising an awful fuss s-bont
these few Americans being sunk with
the Lusltanla. You would think the
fishes could distinguish between the
taste of American flerh and other peo
ple's flesh." ,
llnlch ul.o referred to nn episode at
the home of K. K. Hull, manager of
ihihii plantation wherein, after the
.ircak in relations between this country
mill (lerinany, Wei nzlieimer is charged
to have "hoched der Kaiser."
Uaes "Uglier" Word
This latter charge brought a denial
from Hull of an assertion on the part of
Halch that Hull had threatened him if
he used the episode. On this denial
Halch used the word liar, saying:
"Hull you lie. You're n dirty liar."
Hull explained he had asked Halch
not to bring in the episode and had
warned him that if he did so he (Bull)
would gi t back at him, meaning, would
give an explanation.
Hull M-k.'.l to be left out of the
whole nlTnir. because he is a neutral
alien. Hull is a Swede by birth. Ho
was. however, subjected to Home ques
tioning. After the meeting it was insinuated
in some Homers tln.t the connection of
Hull with yesterday affair and Ills al
leged threat against Halch might be in
troduced into the meeting of Oahu
Sugar Compa n v today.
Charges In Full
Mr. Halch presented his charges and
the substantial ing allidavits in writing
and ai. follows:
" Mi rea' on for appearing before you
today at the annual meeting of the
Pioneer Mill Company, Limited, is a
seiious one, and lias only been under
taken alter deliberate consideration of
the entire iiiestion involved, and the
fad that mv duties as chairman of the
district board of exemption for the Tor
ri'orv of Hawaii have thoroughly i in
prcNHed me with Hie seriousness of our
coun'rv's Mitustion and safely in tilt
terrible win 's cataclysm.
"These are times when every Ameri
can should be on watch for signs Of
treasonable utterances, treasonable ac
tions, and unpatriotic or pro German
tendencies by all residing within the
Confines of the I'nited States, in order
that the loyal American may be sepa
rated from the disloyal and treasonable
ones, and that tio doubt may exist Jn
the minds of our brave boys 'over
there,' a to the unqualified loyalty
and support of those who are in posi
tions of authority and whose position
are. such that the safety or sustenance
of the country may be said to be part
ly at least in their hands.

"I now wish to bring to your atten

(ought ft make some eiplaastions at
yesterday's meeting. He explained the1
"bock der kaiser" episode as Joke at
the end of an argument over the war
and uttered as the closing words of
that argument as he was leaving Mr.
Bull's house. Mr. Bull had said the
argument aad the attributed "toast"
occurred before, the i'nited States had
severed diplomatic, relatione. This ex
ptanaflon by VTin!heler was In
answer to a question by . fudge W, I

Before this question the accused man

had said:
Aakf Investigation
."These charges, sre very severe. I
ssk before you reach a verdict you give
me a hearing. I will appear before you
and answer all these charges.",
General J. H. Hoper inquired speci
fically of Weinzheimer ss to the tat
ter's eitiaeaship, whether he did not
become a citizen under the German
Delbruch duel citizenship law, passed
in 1911. Weinzheimer said he became
S citizen In 1912 and disclaimed know
ledge of the law mentioned.
"Didn't you notify the German con,,
sul that you were going to become aa
American citizen f" asked General
So per.
'Y, I did that," replied Weine-
"Then under the terms of that law
you still retain your German citizen
ship. You sre not a true American,
but a citizen of Germany' declared
General Soper.
"The time is coming then if the 7
S. government does not act more
severely, men of your class will be
hung by ur vigilantes," said General
Hoper in vigorous tones.
Explains Kem&rk
Relative to his alleged remarks oa
the sinking of the Lusitania, Wetns
heimer. said he was confident he had
not used those words as he had taken
especial pains to be careful In his ut
terances and finally denied he had used
the word the affidavits attributed to
Following a considerable period of
heated debate and a cross fire of ques
tions directed upon the manager, L. L
McCandless moved for an investlgatioa
of the charges by the board of directors
and the United States attorney. This
motion E. I. Spklding amended so mi
to cjtM for the naming by the stock
holders. The amendment was accepted
and carried unanimously. H. E. Cooper,
A. 1.. Castle, W. L. Stanley, Albert

Here President Hagens remarked that
all employes of the company must be

that most securities must undergo.

Protection Difficult
There has been discussion in some
quarters about congress enacting legis
lation to protect purchasers of Lllier
ty Bonds. This, however, is easier
said than done. If nn( or both houses
of congress took up such legislation,
their action would emphasize to the
public the weakness of the Liberty
Bonds and thus might embarrass the
government. At present there Is not
the slightest prospect congress will con
sider any such measure. . It might tie
that some nrrangenient for redeeming
Liberty Bonds, where owners were un
der necessity of realizing on their in
vestment, might be made with federal
reserve banks. But it is not altogether
clear whether even tis could be done
without playing into the hands of de
signing gentlemen, who are entirely
willing to make Secretary of the Treas
ury MeAdoo "goat".
The fact that Secretary MeAdoo hns
been so prominently identified with the
issue and sale of the Liberty Bonds
makes the situation politically attrac
tive. A considerable depreciation in
Liberty Bond prices will naturally be
resented by many thousands of people,
who purchased and who might thus be
easily led to regard the name of the
secretary of the treasury as anathema.
Unpatriotic Politics
The unpatriotic aspect of such ma
nqeuvering stands out conspicuously, of
course. But the worthy gentlemen pull

There is small likelihood they can be
enticed out into the open. Consequent

may be struck in some quarter. Both
sides are very cautious, lest a particular
play might work to the advantage of

Organization Effected At Meet
ing Last Night When Charter .,
and By-Laws Were Adopted
First Effort WiiTle To Supply
Natives With Staple Foods .
At Prices They Can Afford
With three fifths of its capital stock
subscribed, the stock holder of th
I'nited Hawaiian Association held their
first meeting last night and adopted
charter snd by laws of an organization
that is designed to return the Hawaiian
race on its old time economic, footing
and stimulate organization and tesm
ork that can make the Hawaiian in-
(.. iieiideiit of the other races that have
come to hi shores.
Speaker at last night's meeting, held
in the eitv hall, were enthusiastic in
hailing the return of the old proud
spirit of the itawaiians and Of some
thing like the sense of Independence
that the race possessed long before the
first Spaninrds came over the sea.
Committee reports enabled the Or
ganisation to set forth as Its mission
ns an incorporated body with the
knowledge that the first object of the
body the effort to SQpjily the Ha
waiian with their staple food at prises
within their means is attainable. The
association received the Information
that six thousnnd bags of tar can now
tie bought, enough to run .the' 0W
ioi factory of ths organization fof
six months; that plenty of tao land
is to be had and that Hawaiian! all
over the islnnds are eager tq betid their
efforts to supplying the new organiaa
tion with the staple of food.
Directors To Run Business
The board of directors appblated at
last night 's meeting are authorized to
conduct the business of the or nan I za
tion, which is not to be designed as t
charitable institution, it Was etnphaV
sized nt the meeting, but one to pro
mote the spirit and welfare of the na
tives of the islands.
Much reference was made ia the in
augural speeches of the officers te the
traditional pride of the Hawaiian Race
which would disdain the present rtr
dii anient of being wholly , dependent
for its sustenance upon men who cam
here not so many years ago as contract
"All that is needed for the success of
this cause is the unity .which I think
this organization will furnish," said
James L. Holt, newly elected vice-president
of the organization. , "Without
unity the Hawaiian Jlaee will fail ai
many another race his fallen. We flattst
stand together or else suffer tfte la
flexible condemnation of nature anil
confess ourselves unfit and rightly
doomed to extinction.
Not Charitable Institution
The upeech which was made by Presi
dent Samuel G. Dwight impressed. the
point that the organization must not be
considered one of a charitable nature la
its efforts to bring relief to the depti
tute of the natives, because that would
not accomplish the main purpose of the
organization, that Of inspiring COBB
deuce and independence. t.
' ' This is a business enterprise nnd
in ii Ht be for the benefit of all the stock
holders," he said. "We have, i'tt th
formation of this body, entered the
great economic struggle to take our
part iu the keen competition that 11
forcing us more and more try tne way
side, and onle of our first duties U to
make it pay. I want this association
to progress and have a little in Out
pockets besides."
A committee of three was appointed
to take the preparatory steps to the
obtaining of a charter under whlco tne
