FROM ARMY TO NAVY:
POLICE CAPTORS DENIED
Case of Private-Giberge Unique
From City Prison to Tell of

The army, the navy arid the local
police are trying to settle a three
cornered complication over the pay
ment of a reward for the capture of a
military deserter. The case is unique
in the annals of the army, and while
the equity is apparent, it's a question
whether or not red tape will strangle
Private John Giberge, of the FiAt
Field Artillery, some days ago tired
of the peaceful life of Leilehua, jump

lulu. A day os so afterward
he was pointed out to the police as an
army deserter, and landed in Jail.
Bolts and bars had no terrors for
the soldier-sailor, and he calmly walk

down the line to tell all his friends
how easy it was to break Jail. His are tied up about giving the reward.

opening of this school is involved the
removal of the fence about the Boy's
Field now under lease by the Young
Men's Christian Association, and the
cutting of a lane from School street

the new site will be several feet to

be built so as the entrance will be

ing taken to that Post in an ambu
lance, his many adventures with two
kinds of bars having proved too much
for his constitution.
Now the question of the $50 reward
for'the apprehension of a deserter has
come up, and the army is at a dead
lock. The authorities realize that the
entire credit for the capture was due
the police, and they are anxious to
pay over the money, but the regula
tions state that in order to claim re
ward, a deserter must be turned over
to the nearest military post.: In this
instance the police turned the man
over to the navy, acting in good faith,
and the navy handed him back to the
"It's just the sort of good work that
the police did in this case that we are
tiying to encourage," said an army:
officer this morning. "And now we

were aomg the right thing. They have
! now put in a. formal claim, and we will
do everything possible to see that It Is

I Giberge will be court martialed at
Fort Shafter in the near. future. .
When the board of army officers
now in session here to lay plans "to
make the Island of Oahu impragna
ble," completes its work it will have
gone over the island with a fine-tooth
comb and collected a mass of staisti
cal military information of the great
est value to future .developments.
The board is in session almost ev-J
ery day at department headquarters.
For the first two weeks Lieutenant
Colonel Morrison and Major Blakeiy
made many autoJtrips to various
points along the coast and in the in
terior to familiarized themselves with
the lay of the land and the strategical
possibilities. General Macomb, presid
ing officer of the board, and 'Major
Wooten, Its fourths-member, knowing
every foot of Oahu, did not take part
in these excursions.
Now, however, the visiting officers
have a good working idea of the
country, and the board is getting down
to the hard work o'f evolving plans for
further fortifications, and laying out
a general scheme of defense for Ha
waiU This work is being done in the
strictest secrecy, not an inkling of
what plans are in the air having been
given out. Even the probable length
of time the board's work will take is
not known, although the guess fs that

Chairman Low attempted to pla

Chairman Dwight, who finally told
the citizens assembled that his com
mittee had filed several reports which
had received scant consideration at
the hands of the board.
