Hilo women protest, 1898.

WOMEN BOLT.

Hilo’s Patriotic League Repudiates the Central Society.

A committee of the Women’s Patriotic League of Hilo, Island of Hawaii, has made a protest against the memorial presented some time ago by  the Honolulu committee of that organization to the Commission. An English translation of the protest is as follows:

“This committee of the Women’s Patriotic League was chosen by a meeting which was held on the 29th day of September, 1898, at the town of Hilo.

“By this we protest against the memorial of the Women’s Patriotic League of Honolulu, for good reasons:

“‘1. That the Women’s Central Patriotic League of Honolulu did not invite the branch leagues of the Women throughout the Islands to join and consult together with them upon  their memorial, and have it passed by a unanimous vote.

“‘2. Their pretending to merge all the other branch leagues throughout the Islands, not in agreement with their purposes, is a fraud;

“‘3. Therefore, we, the Women’s Patriotic League of the Town of Hilo, do withdraw ourselves from that Central League at Honolulu, and stand independently. We have nothing more to do with them.’

“Truly remain,

“MRS. ANNIE LEWIS,
“MRS. KEKONA PILIPO,
“MRS. ALAI AKAMU,
“MRS. HATTIE NAILIMA,
“MRS. MIHANA AI,
“MRS. LILIA WEST,
“MRS. M. K. KAIUAOLA.

“Committee.”
