Reports Sent To Washington

Canard Emanating In City
Allen enemies in Hawaii are being
persecuted, driven out of employment
and indiscriminately punished by thr
citizena of this Territory, according to
leports which have reached the depart
ment of justice at Washington and over
which that department, headed bv At
torney General Gregory, in all worked
op. ,
The department, of course, Is not in a
position to know that the report dent
in io it are SOsoiutely raise. Jt known

probably doei not know why. Th
department, in much perturbation, ha
written to Ue egate Kuhio about t hi
matter. It does not aav. in its lette

most people in Honolulu were given tw
guesses, they would have one to spare
Following ia the letter received bv
the Delegate from John Lord O'Brien,
assistant to the attorney general, undc
date of .Tune 12:
Xxt of Letter
"'i'he oapartment is in receipt of you.
-imr in may zi, jwis, enclosing a
resolution adopted by the mayor ol
iiouoiu.u, in regard to alien enemies in
that . I erritory.
" Kef erring to the context of the reso
lution forwarded by you, you are re
spectfully informed that the doDitrt
n.ent of justice has no power to iplern
any persons uuieag they are alien en
emies within the description of that
statute. Ho far as alien enemies are
concerned it in and has been the policy
of this department to arrest and eithei
prosecute, intern or put on parole ander
surveillance all alien enemies who make
disloyal utterances, and to intern all
those who in the view of the attorney
generul are dangerous to the public
"In this connection, this department
has been greatly concerned because of
the attitude of many citizens of Ha
waii toward alien enemies within ihat
territory. In his proclamation of April
K, 1017 (relating to German alien en
emies), the President declared that
" 'So long as they shall conduct
themselves in accordance with law, the
ball be andistarbed in the peaeefu'
pursuit of their lives and occupation
and be accorded the consideration ,due
to peaceful and law abiding persons
eicept so far as restrictions mny be
necessary for their own protection and
for the safety of the United States; nni
towards such alien enemies as conduct
themselves in accordance with Itiw. ftl"
citizens of the United States are enjoin
ed to preserve the peace and to trea'
them with sll such f riend'iness as nvu
le compatible with loyalty, and alle
gisnee to the United States.'
"The same Isnguage was used by thr
P-oxident in his second Proclnmatioi
relating to Austrian alien enemies.
Discrimination Charged
"Many reports have eome to this de
partiuent which apparently show thn'
certain citizens of Hawaii have not
obeyed this injunction of the President ,
but in their patriotic neat have dis'ri
initiated against alien enemies to an ex
tent which had made all alien eueaiiei
a class apart, has forced them out ol
employment, made them dissatisfied
and made them fit subjects for the
machinations of persons wrongly dis
posed towards the United Htiites.
"It is not the desire of this dirpart
nip-nt to interfere with the growth of
patriotism; on the contrary, it is the
desire of this department In everv wa
poHsib'e to promote the growth of con
structive patriotism everywhere. Hut
if -i policy of indiscriminately punishinii I
a'ien enemies were followed out by th j
citizena of thia country, troubles am1 1
disorders would ensue which would
hnve the tendency to make these peopli
dislovnl and interfere irreatly with thi
efficient prosecution of the war. 'IV
make these Tieofde as a class outcasts I
not only inflicts gross injustice Upoi
them in a spirit out of keeping with
American institutions, but greatly in
terferes with utilizing their labor ir
promoting the cause of the war. Th
deiiartiiient will appreciate your actior
if you will bring thia view to the atten
tion of vour constituents.
I.e-Hs'ature Powerless
"The department has no present in
tention of estaldishi n an internment
camp in i'-waii. It has recently jieen
called to the attention of the deoart
ment that the legislature of Hawaii ha
'eon considering a bill to provide for
the internment of alien enemies in th'
Te-ritorv. Coneress having long since

Seven Already Assigned To Isl

Manoa and Lurline
The fact that the I'nited States
.hipping Hoar.l intends to take care
f the commerce of the Hawaiian Isl
lids is further demonstrated in the
uriiing over of seven of the steamers
eceiitly built for the bonrd to take

"Owing to the Targe increase in

It is expected that many of the
T-nduafes of the present reserve offl

racks will lie assigned to duty with
hose regiments, but at the wame time,
the island men now being drawn from
