Not in recent history of Maui has
a more patriotic meeting been held
than that which took place last Sat

munity House under the auspices of
the Maul branch of the American
Defense Society. P. P. Baldwin,

thrilling speech, in which he told
graphically of the need of the Ameri

society stood. In detail the work

Maui Decides To Go
On "The Water Wagon"
At the meeting held yesterday af
ternoon the board of liquor license
commissioners of the island of Maul
decided that no liquor licenses should
be granted in this county to extend
over July I next, which means that
Maui will go on the "water . wagon"
on June 30 next. Messrs. C. D. Luf
kin, D. C. Lindsay and D. H. Case
voted for the measure. It was a
somewhat remarkable fact that the
Ilawaiians on the Board (Lyons and
Kaae) opposed, although both are
friends of Delegate Kuhio, who is
making a fight at the present time in
Congress for prohibition for the ter
ritory. The resolution as passed
roads as follows:
WHEREAS the Citizens of Maui, as
a war measure, are urging that, dur
ing the continuance of the war, the
sale of intoxicating liquors in the
County of Maui be discontinued; and
WHEREAS the Maul Chamber of
Commerce has recommended, as a
war measure, that this Board refuse
to grant any liquor licenses whatso
ever providing for the sale and dis
position of intoxicating liquors in the
County of Maui from and after July
THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED
by the Board of License Commission
ers for the County of Maul that, as
a war measure, and at least for the
duration of the war, no licenses or
renewals of licenses allowing and
permitting the sale of intoxicating
liquors in the County of Maui should
be granted to take effect from and
after July 1, 1918.

cancelled Stamps For
The following letter, which explains
itself, and is of general interest, has
been received on Maui:
March 14th 1918.
In answer to your letter of the 1st
inst. I beg to inform you that the can
celled stamps wanted by the Invalided
Belgian Soldiers' Fund are not used
for the recovery of tho dyes, as was
reported erroneously, but merely for
collections and for the decoration of
fancy articles which are sold for the
benefit of said fund.
' In trying to stop the rumor about
the dyes, I placed myself at the dis
posal of the public for receiving and
forwarding to the Fund all stamps
entrusted to my care.
The response has been so generous
and the stamps came in such enor
mous quantities, that I had to Jiake
an appeal, through the local press, in
order ta have their collection discon
tinued. I am just now packing two large
cases which I shall forward to France
at the first opportunity, and there is
still a little room left. If the quanti
ty of stamps you have collected is
not altogether too considerable, I be
lieve that I shall be able to take care
of them, especially if they are of dif
ferent varieties and suitable for col
lections. Thanking you for your kind in
quiry and for the interest and sympa
thy shown. I am, Madam,
Your very sincerely
Consul General of Belgium.

to the Islands. The following are the
principal points in the Delegate's let

Kalanianaole has inaugurated his fight
to have Congress, at this time, enact
the necessary legislation to make the
island of Oahu the greatest naval and
military base In the possession of the

for Congress to go the limit in hav

that will be ready at a moment's

"Fireworks" were near at several
periods during the meeting of the
liquor license board, which decided to
close all saloons and wholesale liquor
houses on the island on June 30; but
probably closer when the following
letter was presented by George Free
land, the hotel man of Lahaina:
Lahaina, Maui, T. II.
March 27th. 1918
To the Board of Liqour
County of Maul,
Wailuku, Maul, T. H.
At the risk of being called unpatri
otic or some other name by the op
position, I desire to respectfully sub
mit a few points for your considera
tion on the proposal to refuse to is
sue any liquor licenses providing for
and permitting the sale of intoxicat
ing liquors in the County of Maui
from and after July 1st., 1918.
The first question is whether tho
Board has a legal right to -refuse all
liquor licenses. The law was made
for the special purpose of regulating
and controlling the liquor traffic of
the Islands. Nobody at that time, ex
cepting the fanatics whose mental
processes rest upon emotion rather
than reason believed that prohibtlon
would prohibit or that a moderate use
of liquors by persons competent to
use them discreetly was harmful or
illegitimate, neither was this awful
war forseen except by a few. I have
the opinion of a leading legal light
of the Territory and also of a lesser
one but with perhaps as much wis
dom, both of whom agree that the
Liquor License Boards have no pow
er to refuse to issue any licenses,
but leaving that question aside, I will
show-that If the Board does refuse
to grant all licenses, they will neither
regulate the sale nor regulate the con
sumption of liquor as they do now,
and this is very important as a war
It is well known that since Con
gress has imposed extra Revenue
Taxes on all liquors, making them
much more expensive, the use of
"swipes" is greatly on the increase,
the same is true of awa, so much so
that small farmers have now gone
into' the cultivation of awa, the sup
ply not being equal to the demand.
If refusing to issue licenses would
stop the consumption of liquor, it
would no doubt be an excellent war
measure for us and our Allies, altho'
the films recently seen at our theaters
entitled "France in ArniB," shows that

"We had no success on Maul, as

"Kauai was in the same position.
Hawaii sent 18, and Oahu, including

BIG GERMAN OFFENSIVE
SEEMS TO BE FAILING
Greatest Battle The World
Enormous Losses On Both Sides, But The In
vaders Appear To Be Checked Americans
Supposed To Be In The Fighting-Other News
British Headquarters The Germans have attacked heavily on both
sides of the Scarp river towards Arras. Bitter fighting along the front
from Cavrelle, three miles north of the river, to Boyless, seven miles
below the river line, running four miles cast of Arras. The Germans
have succeeded in advancing somewhat in the face of desperate resist
ance. It is not known if they are making a serious threat against Arras.
Haig's official report says that after an all-day battle north and south
of Scarp, with Arras in the center, the British have beaten the Ger
mans, with heavy losses to the enemy. -Continuous air fighting Wednes
day, thirty-two German machines being shot down. Nineteen British
machines are missing.
FRENCH REPORT ADVANCE
Paris In front of Lassigny to Noyon our troops advanced over
a front of ten kilometers, to a depth of two. Farther west German
attacks were repulsed.
THE pREAT GERMAN DRIVE
New York Slowly assuming the shape of a grea': plow, the Ger
man drive in Picardy has come almost to a halt except on the very point.
There was savage fighting ye-.Hrday in the Trench sector bayonettes
being used in repelling German attacks The British north of Scarp
repelled the enemy and on the south forced him to retire. There were
two outstanding features of yesterday's battling, first in the French
drive into the German lines on the south flank, establishing a salient in
the German drive; and second, a new drive started by the Germans
cast of Arras, which may be the inception ci a widemnc. battle area
northward. The Allied worll is looking anxiously for news of the sue-'
cess of the French drive into the German flank. The f ict that the drive
has progressed rapidly and cu: a deep notch into the German front in
ihe region of Noyon may indicate that an Hied offensive may be ex
pected within three days. Further advance rf the Fre.vh at this point
might overturn the whole German plan and inaugurate an Allied blow
a'ong the whole front.
Berlin admits heavy losses, and says tha'. the Americans are among
the units now forming the strategic reserves. Probaily, says Berlin, '
these divisions participated in the Noyon offensive yesterday.
Reuter's Agency says that for twenty-four hours the German at
tacks have made only slight, local gains, while the British have repulsed
attacks and made local advances. The British have begun heavy
bombardment east of Arras where heavy fighting is developing.
THE FIGHTING IN FRANCE
Paris There has been fighting of extraordinary ferocity in the
neighborhood of Monte Didier, massed Germans in hand-to-hand con
flict with the French losing heavily. The Germans, blocked at Lassigny,
Boyon and left bank of the Aisne, turning main attack against Monte
Didier. The British are taking numerous prisoners and machine guns
along the Picardy line.
