Ray Lyman Wilbur
Mar, 1929
As Secretary of Interior Ray Lyman Wilbur was very concerned about the problems in Hawaii because the Interior Department was responsible for the civilian government in Hawaii. When the Pinkerton Report was leaked, Wilbur sent a cable to Governor Judd demanding that he suppress the report because it would upset attempts to grant pardons to the defendants and because it would show that the Ala Moana defendants were innocent and that an innocent man, Joseph Kahahawai, had been murdered.
