Save Their Sake
Following are the resolutions adopt
ed by the Japanese chamber of com
merce, of Honolulu, in their efforts to
save Japanese sake from the work
ings of any regulations which may be
adopted by the United States against
the sale of liquor in the Territory:
"Whereas, seceral organizations of
Honolulu, Territory of Hawaii, have
adopted resolutions relative to the
manufacture and sale of intoxicating
liquors within the territory, some- of
said resolutions favoring prohibition
throughout the entire territory, and
some requesting that the president by
proclamation prevent such, sale and
manufacture only on the Island of
Oahu, and that as a war measure;
. "Whereas, It appears to the Japan
ese chamber of commerce of the Ter
ritory of Hawaii that in the adoption
of such resolutions the organizations
in question gave no consideration
whatever to the views and tastes of
the Japanese population of the Ter
ritory of Hawaii, and
1 ' Accustomed to Its Use
"Whereas, the large number of Jap
anese residents in the Territory of
Hawaii have been accustomed to the
use of sake as a beverage, and
"Whereas, statistics will demon
strate that the Japanese population
of the Territory of Hawaii are not ad
dicted to the use of intoxicating
liquor in such a degree as to make
3uch use detrimental to either pub
lic health or morals, and that the pro
hibition of the use of sake as now
employed by the said Japanese popu
lation is not necessary for any war
"Whereas, in the manufacture of
sake the only foodstuffs used are
foodstuffs wh)Ch are imported from
foreign -ounli:es and the manufac
ture of sake In no way draws up-i1
tho food nupjl of the people of the
Unttfd Slates, . d
"Whereas, under the decisions of
the supreme court of the United
States of America and the rules of
tho internal revenue department of
the United States, sake is classified
as a still wine and not as a distilled
"Now, therefore, be it resolved by
the Japanese chamber of commerce
of Honolulu that the president of the
United States., be and is hereby me
morialized to except from the opera
tion and effect of any proclamation
which he may promulgate concern
ing the use of intoxicating liquors on
the Island of Oahu, or within the Ter
ritory of Hawaii, the manufacture
and use of sake."
New Inspection System
For Public School
Dr. L. L. Patterson, of the Terri
torial board of health, will shortly
come to Maul for the purpose of
establishing in the schools the system
of health inspection now in use in
Honolulu. The date of his arrival Is
not yet known, but he will likely be
here early In February.
By this system careful tab Is kept
on the health of every child in the
public schools from data furnished by
physicians who make regular inspec
tions. Card cases are used so that
any child can be referred to instantly
and the progress of its health noted.
Local cards show that most of the
diseases that afflict school children
are among the lower grades, also that
when afflicted thus children of ad
vanced age are generally behind In
their grades. As the child passes on
from grade to grade his deficiencies
grow less, or, in other words, those
who recover from their ailments are
the only ones that reach the higher
ANDREW JACKSON'S FINE.
How Judge Hall Came to Punieh the
When the war of 1812 was over
vague rumors of peace drifted into1
New Orleans, but still JackBon did not
feel Justified in revoking the martial
law, under which he had placed the
city. While the city was In this state
this peculiar Incident started. A matt
anmed Louallller was tried as being
a spy and was acquitted. This dis
pleased Jackson, and feeling that in
the martial law he had complete com
mand of the city, he, In opposition te
the court, retained Louallller In prison
and sent Judge Hall out of the city
with orders not to return until It was
regularly posted that peace bad been
declared or that tho enemy had left
The following day came the overdue
notice officially explaining that peace
had been declared and that the treaty
had been ratified. Upon hearing this
Jackson revoked the martial law and
set all his prisoners free. Then pre
paring to send home, the detached mi
litia from Louisiana, Tennessee and
Kentucky amid the greetings and dem
onstrations of the populace, Judge Hall
returned to the city.
In order to uphold the honor, as It
seems of the civil over the martial gov
ernment. Judge Hall issued, on March
21, an order summoning Jackson to
court for contempt of A habeas corpus
writ and also to state his reason for
so doing. The next day Jackson ap
peared In court In person. He held a
written protest against the decision
which was to be given.
Hall then Imposed a fine of (1,000,
remarking that "the duty was unpleas
ant, that he could not forget the im
portant services of the defendant to
the country, and that in consideration
thereof be would not make imprison
ment a part of the punishment"
The fine was promptly paid amid
cheering of the crowd for the popular
hero. Philadelphia Press.

When W. J. Seanlan was in the show

one occasion with a brand new comic

sendoff he formulated the plan of send

men high in social life.
"That won't do," one of his newspa
per friends told him. "Too common.
Do something picturesque. Why don't
you go after Mr. Wu. the Chinese min
ister? If you get him lie will bring
down a lot of other diplomatic people."
Seanlan full for the proposition and
called at the Chinese legation.
"What sort of show Is this?" asked
"It's a comic opera." replied Seanlan.
"Any good Jokes In it?"
Seanlan said it was full of good
"Tell me some of them," commanded
Seanlan did so, and Wu got such a
series of laughs out of them that he
sent for his whole establishment, num
bering thirty-two people, and made the
embarrassed Seanlan tell them all over
"Now," continued Wu. "are there
any good songs in this show?"
"The show had so many good songs."
declared Seanlan. "that we bad to
throw some of them away."
"All right." said Wu. "Sing me some
of the best"
"I sang them." said Seanlan, telling
the story afterward. "But that wasn't
so remarkable. I had to sing 'em.
There were thirty -two Chinamen to
make me sing 'em. The amazing part
of the thing was that all thirty-two of
them come to see the show that night"

Why the Boiler Rumbles.
That noisy rumbling and clattering
in the kitchen boiler after the gas wa

time has scared many a woman. The
editor of the Monthly Gas Chat says
It need alarm no one. as it is caused by
the expansion of the water as It Is
heated from the top of the boiler. The
colder water below, rushing up to dis
place the expanded water above, will
often cause a concussion.

MEXICO'S ROYAL GHOST.
Legend of the Rumbling Cave of Las
8iervas Hot Springe.
The hot springs of Las Slorvas, nenr
Valle de Cnnizos, in a remote part of
the state of Guerrero, Mexico, have
been visited by few people from the
outside world, but they are famous In
the legends and history of the Indian
tribes of that part of the republic.
According to the natives, the waters
of the springs possess great medicinal
properties. In ancient times the
springs were the favorite bathing re
sort of the noble families of the Tepa
neca, Alcolhua and other tribes that
lived In tbat region.
On both sides, of the chief spring
there are huge rocks with hieroglyph
ics and the figures of women beauti
fully carved. Judging from the robes
worn by the women, their stately ap
pearance and the Jewels around their
necks, the figures must represent prin
cesses or ladies of very high rank.
The spring Is at the entrance to a
grotto tbat has never been explored.
From the grotto a rumbling sound re
sembling distant thunder Is to be heard
all the time. According to natives, the
rumble is caused by the ghost of King
Excamlna, who ruled over that part of
the country three or four centuries be
fore the Spaniards discovered America.
King Excamlna, the tradition says,
was as bad as man could be. He mur
dered people merely for the pleasure of
seeing them die and committed every
crime. He had his palace constructed
In another cave, which communicated
with that of the spring by a tunnel.
There Excamlna, in company with
some of his favorites, had orgies that
lasted weeks and months.
When he died an earthquake destroy
ed bis palace. Since that day his ghost
has been haunting the cave near the
spring, and none of the natives has
ever dared go into the cave. New York

In her production "The School for

versatility as a comedienne and still
more recently in "Unconquered," and

mother, living in a poverty-stricken
tenement, commits suicide and Rose
is adopted by Judge and Mrs. Keith,
while Norma is taken over by Mrs.
Dugan, a woman of the tenements.
From then on they are known under
their adopted names. Rose becomes
a social favorite, but. Norma falls in
to the clutches of Calistro, a charlatan
hypnotist. Under his guidance she
becomes an hypnotic subject and
Calistro is taken up by fashionable
