have access to the more itopulatcd centers of the county.
This is the expressed ambition of Chairman I'ogue and is proltahly
shared by all of the other members of the Board.
To accomplish this desired end is a problem that must U worked out

Sunday, in a town where it is
against the law to serve a drop of
booze on the first day of the week,
was what attracted more attention
than anything else.
Out of thirty-six hundred men on
shore there were necessarily many
who were thirsty and who managed
to get what they wanted to drink.
At the saloons on Saturday money
was paid over the bars for lieer
which was delivered to the men
when they called at the brewery
The word was passed along the
line that Sunday was not going to
be dry if a little forethought could
make it otherwise, and the Uiys
having been paid off Saturday, to
the tune of about f2 10,(HK) for the
fight cruisers here, there was no
lack of cash.
The lecr, presumably was pi id

culled for on Sunday. -The blue
jackets called ut the brewery in

and express wagons and gathered
the liquid refreshment.

Thesevcr.teen dollars and eighty
five cents worth of hopitality so
generously tendered the Con
gressional party by It. It. Elgin of
Mahukona is liable to prove a Ins
ing venture for the gentleman. It
has brought him into trouble with
the government of the United
States and may result in his a i rest
by the United States Marshal on a
charge of selling liquor without an
Internal Revenue license. The
minimum punishment for that
offense is $100 fine and six months
Mr. Elgin, however, is to be
given a chance to square himself
with Uncle Sam before any drastic
measures are resorted to. Collector
of Internal Revenue Walter F
Drake stated jesterday morning
that he would send notice to M
Eligin to pay the Internal Revenue
tax for selling liquor, on pain in
the event of his refusal, of arrest
bv the Federal authorities. .The
license tax will cost him about $37
But this is not all, for Mr. Elgin
has already violated the law in
that he sold booze to the members
of the Congressional party and
made a charge for it, which has
heetn paid. He will ha vc to square
that matter with Uncle Sam, too.
If he is good and conies to time,
he may escape arrest by making
an offer of compromise to the Col
lector of Internal Revenue Tin
amount which he will have to p-iy
in :ieu of a fine is optional with
the collector, but in view of the
gravity and aggravated nature of
the offense, it .s proliuMe that
good round sum will be required
of him. If he refuses to come
through, the United States Mar
shal or one of his deputies will go
to Mahukona ami artc.-t Mr. Elgin
and lu'ing hi.n back to Honolulu
io t ind tiiai tor the offense with
ivlnch tie 1. cii.'irged. If convicted
he may not only have to pay a
line, but al-o go to jail for six
months. It is doubtful if, in that
event, all his numerous salaries
would be allowed to run on.
.Mr. Eimn appears also to have
laid himself liaiile to penalties un
der ihe territorial law. He madi
a charge for coffee, flour and sugar,
and the sale of these was made
without a merchandise license
which is a tiolaiion of the laws of
the Territory of Hawaii Worse
than .this, also, Mr, Elgin is accused
of running a blind pig, nnd has
laid himself liable to arrert by the
territorial authorities on the charge
of selling liquor without a license.
Altogether, the hospitable re
sident of Mahukona has got him
self in'oa pretty had fix, and it is
liable to cost him a good deal more
than fl7.o lo get out of it.
