Terrorism even here? 1926.

KNIFE USED AS NAIL TO AFFIX NOTE ON DOOR

The Ku Klux Klan Association is here in this town according to Maurice Rey, the owner of a hair salon on Emma Street. According to the claim of Rey before Detective Kellett, this past Saturday, he found a warning of troubles that would be carried out upon him, and for that reason he wanted to be put under the protection of the police force, and he also asked that he be protected from wrongdoings by a group of degenerates seen often in his area.

When he went to his place of work in the morning of this past Saturday, the first thing his eyes saw was a note on the door affixed by a knife painted red, the paint still fresh on the knife. These are the words written on the note. “Mr. Freitchie, Do not let the sun set upon you in this town. BEWARE, K. K. K.”

The police department is in charge of being vigilant against this type of terroristic activity, and they will try to search out and arrest the Imperial Wizard of the Klan living here in this town.

[Stand up against cowardly acts of bullying and terrorism.]

  1. Goto Katsu was the victim of “Klan-style” lynching murder perpetrated by “by five men with one additional accomplice: Joseph R. (JR) Mills, a local hotel and mercantile store owner; Walter Blabon a drayman; Thomas Steele a luna or overseer on Robert Overend’s plantation; William Watson a drayman who worked for J. R. Mills; and John Richmond, Overend’s stableman” from the wiki. I’m wondering if Mills; Blabon; Steele; Watson; and/or Richmond were American nationals from the Confederate states…. I find myself very much enjoying this blog even though I’ve no Hawaiian. cheers and Mahalo.
