the aid of the party-for, lo. these many
years. Not particularly in a finan
cial w ay, for he is a man in moderate
circumstances, but in a political way.
He has been a wheelhorse of Democ
racy when the Toads were long and
dusty, not to say rocky, and he has
helped pull the Bourbon party along
in old Ioway until his political serv
ices were recognized by Jeffersonian
stalwarts not only in said Iowar but
It is Raid that there are only fout
persons in Hawaii who know the "in
side" of Huber's appointment as U. S.
district attorney. This comes from
one of the alleged four. The Star
Bulletin counting the editorial "we"
as one therefore makes fire and has
tens to take the Hawaii public into its
The "Inside" Story.
Here then is the "inside" story ot
how Huber happens, to find political
haven in Hawaii:
He has in Honolulu a persona
friend, ex-resident of Iowa. Thi?
friend on a visit to the mainland last
summer met Huber and in the course
of the discussion brought up the then
popular subject of Jeff McCarn and
the-district attorneyship. The signs
already were pointing to a vacancy
so far as McCarn was concerned. It
was apparent that if he didn't elimin
ate himself from the office, somebody
was going to eliminate him.
Huber- was interested in the pros
pect of the vacancy, for it appears
that he has long wished to pay Ha
waii a visit and seriously considered
residing here permanently, strange as
that may seem in a mainland Demo
crat. And from that meeting and
chance discussion, Huber became a re
ceptive candidate for the U. S. attor
Iowa Democracy, as aforesaid, owed
him a debt of gratitude. He had
toiled long and faithfully in the heat
of the day and, when the ice water
and cakes were being passed around,
he was a candidate for refreshments.
This political situation was well and
truly known to Thomas J. Steele of
Sioux City, who ia a member of the
Iowa delegation in the lower house of
Congress and is by way of being a
power in Iowa politics. He is a mem
ber of the committee on agriculture
and appears to have been doing some
intensive cultivation around the de
partment of justice. At any rate, when
McCarn was eliminated from Hawaii
last December Huber went down to
Washington and there Steele "went
strong1 for him;"
A Live Tip. .
' The Star-Bulletin's Washington cor
respondent cabled the correct' tip here
months ago, but the work for Hnbei
had been so quietly done that many
of the local politicians didn't believe
''Who's Hubert they asked, and
getting no answer they passed the tip
up as a dead one. V
But it wasn'L Huber went back to
his home in Tama on the inside track
for the U, S. attorneyship. He pro
ceeded to do a neat little job of watch
ful waiting, while the department of
justice was thrashing out the various
complications over ' judicial appoint?
ments. Congressman Steele kept on
with his cultivation around-the roots
of the political plum tree and the
Huber plum ripened under the smil
ing noon-day sun.:
And at the right time, down it
dropped into the receptive lap ' of th e
gentleman from Tama, Iowa.'
That s the "inside" story. ; Person?
ally, Mr. Huber is said to be a likeable
man and his friends are confident he
will make good with a capital G down
here. He is 46 years of age, said to
be neither straight-laced nor wobbly
in personal character, and to be a hard
working attorney. :

Owihg to the large demand for and
limited supply of the automobile direc

last year, and also taking note of the
fact that there have been a. large
number of automobiles put into daily
use throughout the islands since the

ket reminder, another edition of the
automobile' directory will be issued
This will be larger, better, more com

nell having stated that this was the
wish of the liquor commission.
Attorney W. T Carden- spoke only
briefly tor the i-roecuticn, agreeing
however to the f uspeuslon.
FollrrinR the announcement by
Judge Monsitrrat and the discharge
of the two men. Mr. .'arden gave the
following statement to the Star-Bulletin:
"The county attorney's office knew
nothing about this proposition until
it came out in the newspapers. We
found out then that suspended sen
tence had been arranged before any
arrests were made, and that a con
fession had been made by the two
men. by virtue of that promise.
Fennell Asked Leniency.
"Mr. Fennell-then came to us and
told us that he wanted to have sen
tence suspended by the attorney's of
fice, and that this was also the desire
of the liquor commission: Our con
nection with the case came solely
through the fact that it v as brought
into the police court for trial.
"If the liquor inspector and the li
quor commission feel satisfied there
U. nothing eise we .can do than 'to
grant such a suspension. Under the
circumstances of this case, and ac
cording to the arrangements .iade
between Fennell and the defendants,
there was nothing else to do this
"However, the city and -county at
torney's office, while consenting to
the suspension of sentence, refused
to move affirmatively for it. It stated
the facts to the court, and said that it
had no objection to suspension.
"The city and county attorney's of
fice expects and anticipates that there
wifl be no promise of suspended sen
tences in the future without their
Inspector Fennell expressed his sat
isfaction with the leniency shown by
the court this morning.
"These men were not selling liquor
for profit," he declared. "They were
selling .It much cheaper than it can
be purchased in town. Furthermore
they kept it on board as n matter of
good fellowship.-and not with the wil
ful intent of breaking the law."
