Messrs. C. G. Bockus, Gerrit Wilder and C. S. Crane, the committee named to select and purchase moving-picture film for the machine shortly to be taken to the Molokai Settlement, watched R. K.

LEPERS CALL THE PINKHAM ENDORSEMENT A HUMBUG

That fishy wireless from Kalaupapa which arrived here the day Pinkham expected to be reappointed, announcing his endorsement by the lepers of the Settlement, has brought the following repudiation. it now looks as if the “endorsement” had been a put-up job between Pinkham and one of his subordinates with the intent to deceive the Governor:

To Mrs. Atcherley:

Having received work by mail of last week to this effect: That we, the leper inmates of Kalaupapa did meet and appoint a committee to extend by wireless our hearty endorsement to the Governor for the reappointment of L. E. Pinkham, Esq. as president of the Board of Health, on the 18th day of April, 1908,

Therefore, We, the undersigned lepers residing in the County of Kalawao, hereby wish the truth to be publicly announced, that there was, and has never been a meeting held here at Kalaupapa for such purpose on the date mentioned or any other date thereof.

Be it further announced, That Mr. Pinkham’s removal from that office receives our hearty approval.
