Martin J. Scully, for a long period,
a popular member of the federal cus
toms staff of inspectors, has returned
to hia old love, after two years' sep
a ration from the service, during which
time he identified himself with the po
lice department as special officer.
Scully but recently! loomed iorth prom
inently in the political spotlight as a
candidate for the office of chief of Ho
nolulu's fire department.
When Miss Democracy began cast
ing about fpr men of handsome and
commanding presence to grace the of
fice of fire chief, she is said to have
looked with considerable favor upon;
the Adonlslike figure of Scully. The,
many frjeads of Martin, now aligned I
with the Bourbon party insisted that1
their champion was no stranger to the
fire-fighting, game Ho is .known to
have served three years with one of
the k large departments on.. the coast
before coming to Honol ul a. j
However. Martin concluded an ap
pointment with Collector of the Port
Stackable. this morning and when he
gleefully ambled down the stairs at'
the federal building. he clutched a doc
ument that gave him authority to
again, don ,lndigo-hued and becoming'
raiment, and display the glittering
and, gilded badge of authority of a
full-fledged customs inspector. j
Scully will take up his duties with
the night force beginning with this
When Martin, left the customs to
take up life as guardian of the public,
peace and morals, be left the wayj
open for reinstatement
In customs circles he is rated as a
competent and efficient officer. His
advent along, the waterfront will be
hailed with, pleasure by the anqy of
constantly arriving tourists who have

pie, business men especially, and the
consensus of opinion appeared to be,
not only from the ordinary citizen
but business men of all political par
ties, that a time had arrived when it
was necessary to appease the public
clamor for a reduction of tariff du
ties. "The congressional elections two
years ago gave notice and warning
that it would be necessary to reform
and reduce the tariff. Manufacturers
and business men generally have
made up their minds that the tariff
will be reduced and must be reduced,
and they are looking forward with
much optimism and great faith in
President-elect Wilson to the inevita
ble alteration of schedules. They be
lieve that his influence and the natu
ral trend of sentiment in congress
will cause changes In the tariff to be
made gradually, and that the reduc
tions will not be so pronounced or
arbitrary as to create anything like
"Drummers and business men were
outspoken in expressing what they
regarded as a statement of existing
fact namely, that the change in ad
ministration from one of the great
political parties to the other in the
near future has caused by anticipa
tion less business disturbance than
that of any similar change in tuo
"It is generally recognized that both
the House and Senate, as well as the
White House, all favor tariff reform
and tariff reduction, and that in the
next four years the reductions will be
great, but none of the changes will be
so sudden or so material as to cau3e
anything like a commercial or indus
trial panic. The men engaged in
manufacturing generally understand
the situation thoroughly and seem to
be reconciled to it and have no fars
for the future.
"To my own mind the high cost of
living is due largely to excessive ta
riff duties, but to a larger and great
er extent to the avarice and greed of
the retailer and the middle roan be
tween the retailer and the manufac
turer and producer."
Judge Quarles stated that from all
that could be gathered in Washington
there would be no confirmation of
presidential appointments at this ses
sion except in cases of emergency.
He also said, in answer to a question,
that he never heard any particular
reference to sugar in. discussions of

As soon as the successful bidders

they may begin active work. This

This leaves $6,647 remaining of the
