Territory of Hawaii, presented the
WHEREAS In order to effectively
aid our Government every effort
should be made to speed up produc
tion of necessary materials for the
conduct of the war, including food
WHEREAS the Territory of Hawaii
produces a large quantity of such food
products, namely sugar and canned
WHEREAS It is a known fact that
the use of Intoxicating liquors Is one
of the potent agencies which works
against efficiency in all lndustres and,
WHEREAS the recent order of
President Wilson prohibiting the sale
of liquor on the Island of Oahu may
deter the passage of the Bill, provid
ing for prohibition for the Territory
of Hawaii, now under consideration
by the Congress of the United States
WHEREAS although we believe the
said order of the President safeguards
those in active military service of
the Federal Government, we believe
that results will be far better if said
bill becomes law as prohibition for
the entire Terrltoy of Hawaii will as
sure a better industrial efficiency as
well as the saving of foodstuffs now
used In the manufacture of alcoholic
beverages consumed In this Territory,
WHEREAS we further feel that
great unfairness will result to us if
prohibition is applied to the Island of
Oahu only as such a half-way measure
will be followed by a large increase
in the liquor traffic and its accom
panying evils on this Island; there
fore bo It
RESOLVED, that the Maul Cham
ber of Commerce, being a represent
ative body of the County of Maul,
Territory of Hawaii, urge the Dele
gate to Congress from said Territory
of Hawaii to use his evey effort to
further the enactment of a law, as a
war measure, providing for prohibi
tion for this Territory as a whole;
and be it further
RESOLVED, that a copy of this
preamble and resolution be sent to
our Delegate to Congress, J. Kuhio
Following the reading of this res
olution and a spirited discussion of
the subject under' consideration, it
was moved by Mr. von Tempsky,
seconded by Mr. Foster, that the res
olution prepared and presented by
the committee be adopted by the as
sociation. A rising vote was taken
and was found to be unanimous.
Mr. D. C. Lindsay stated that the
board of liquor license commissioners
for the county of Kauai had recently
gone on record by declaring that they
would not issue any licenses for the
sale of Intoxicating liquors on Kauai
after July 1; Mr. Lindsay submitting
the question as to whether it might
not be best for the Maul Chamber of
Commerce to recommend to the Maul
board of license commissioners that
they take similar action. Mr. Lind
say stated that he was aware of the
fact that there seemed to be a dffer
ence of opinion as to whether the
board had ' the power to absolutely
prohibit the sale of any liquor in the
county, but he was of the opinion
that if the representative citizens of
Maul got behind the board and re
commended that no licenses be issu
ed, he believed the liquor license com
missioners would appreciate knowing
how the citizens felt about the mat
ter. The president of the Chamber
stated that he believed this was an
opportune time to take some action
in this matter because those who
were In the liquor business had a
right to be advised as soon as possi
ble as to what action the board pro
posed to take, and if they were not
going to be permitted to sell after
July 1 it was only right that they
should be informed of the board's
view at as early a day as possible.
After considerable discussion had
in which many of the members ex
pressed themselves as being strongly
in favor of urging the Board of
license commissioners not to issue
any more licenses, it was moved by
Mr. Foster, seconded by Mr. Baldwin,
that the Maui Chamber of Commerce
go on record as urging, as a war
measure, that the board of liquor
license commissioners for the County
of Maul refuse to grant any liquors
licenses whatsoever in the County of
Maul, providing for the sale and dis
position of intoxicating liquors from
and after July 1, 1918. Upon vote
taken the motion carried unanimous
ly. Mr. Wadsworth, being called upon
to report regarding the sale of thrift
stamps and war savings stamps,
stated that he had named committee
men throughout the county, to take
charge of and assist in the work of
furthering the drive of thrift stamp
sales; that he had appointed the fol
lowing: Messrs. Charles Puck, Wai
luku; F. N. Lufkin, Lahaina; A. C.

through it 8 Islands representative, J.
F. Child, endorses the Territorial fair
which will take place here in June,

"The food administration in Wash
ington endorses all fairs and exhibits

of this office in the coming Territori
Horl, from Honolulu, who had been

Mr. William Walsh introduced to
the members of the Chamber of Com
merce, Mr. F. J. Wood, who was in
the Islands as the representative of
the United States Shipping Board
and Emergency Fleet Corporation.
Mr. Wood being located in Seattle.
Mr. Wood being called upon stated
that the request for him to speak
came as somewhat of a surprise.
"I do not know just what you wish
me to talk about, but undoubtedly
that which is nearest and dearest to
our hearts at this particular time is
the war and its successful termina
tion in our favor. For years I have
been a ship builder. My life has
been spent in building ships and for
some 23 years of that time much of
my time has been devoted to the
building of the' United States navy
and in army service so that you can
easily see that I am intensely inter
ested in whatever has to do with the
ship building program. The United
States Shipping Board Is a branch of
the government service, created to
meet the present emergency; that is
the furnishing of bottoms with the
view to supply ourselves and the
Allies with needed munitions and
necessities of war. We have a very
big work to do. Every shipyard in
the United States is working at its
fullest capacity and no other work is
now being dqne except such work
will materially aid In carrying this
program to a successful conclusion."
Mr. Wood spoke at some length
concerning the different ship build
ing companies that had been brought
into the present ship building pro
gram and closed his remarks by say
ing, that anything he could do to
speedily bring this cruel war to a
successful termination in favor of
the nation and the Allies, and save
the lives of thousands of brave men,
would certainly be done." Applause.
On behalf of the association the
President thanked Mr. Wood for his
remarks and assured him that .the
citizens here stood ready to at all
times aid in any way possible.
Mr. Villiers called attention to the
lack of telephone service in the Wai
luku post office and made a motion
that the Maul Chamber of Commerce
request the post office authorities in
Honolulu to install a 'phone in the
Wailuku post office, , Motion second

Mr. Penhallow moved an amend
ment to Mr. Villiers' motion, that the
Chamber of iCommerce requtet the
post offlce officials to Instal telephones
In the post offices of Lahaina, Wai
luku, Kahulut, and Paia, which amend
ment was seconded by Dr. Baldwin.
