DELEGATES PROHIBITION BILL IP
Washington, March 18 Action on
the Delegate's bill for prohibition in
Hawaii will not be taken by the House
before April 1. It was expected that
the bill would be considered on March
18th., suspension day under the rules
of the House. Owing to the necessity
of getting through with the least pos
sible delay the administration's
measure to finance government con
tractors, the Hawaiian prohibition bill
and several measures before the
House from the naval affairs commit
tee were postponed. Representative
Stafford, who represents the wets on
the floor made it known that he would
object to the granting of unanimous
consent for the consideration of the
Hawaiian prohibition bill. This ob
jection means that the bill will have
to wait for April 1, when under the
rules of the House, the Speaker rec
ognizes whom he pleases and a two
thirds vote passes a measure.
Delegate Kalanianaole, after a con
ference with Speaker Clark, Judge
Houston, chairman of the Territories
Committee and Representative Ham
lin, of Mo., was prepared to have the
measure presented to the House on
the 18th., but the change in the pro
cedure and the voiced hostility of
Representative Stafford compelled
him to change his battle plans and
abide his time for two weeks. The
Delegate feels confident that the ne
cessary two-thirds vote will be forth
coming when the bill is brought up
and that It will pass.
Friends of prohibition generally
and many friends of Hawaii had been
advised that the Kalanianaole bill
would be brought up for consideration
on March 18th., and were in goodly
Uncle Sam's postal employees in
the Territory of Hawaii will profit
by the general increase that Congress
is now preparing to give In the sal
aries of all postal employees. The
poMoftice committee of the House has
reported a measure that gives an in
crease to all branches of the service
and it will be before the House for
consideration and action within the
next ten days. There is a general
desire to aid all of the underpaid em
ployees of the Federal government.
Increases have been ordered for the
clerks in Washington: the postal em
ployees are to be taken care of and
in every line of government endeavor
those employees making less than
fifteen hundred dollars nre to be given
increases to meo the high cost of
The House committee on interstate
and foreign commerce is considering
the increase of salaries for the light
house service employees. The Dele-
cate has been assured that Hawaii
will be taken care of the same as the
mainland and it seems certain that
the measure, when formulated, will
have smooth sailing in the House and
The immigration committee of the
House has postponed until next Jan
uary, action on the bill of Delegate
Kalanianaole to permit the introduce
tion of Chinese into the Territory of
Hawaii for rice growing purposes.
W. H. Hindle, representing the
Chinese Merchants Association, of
Honolulu, who has been in Washing
ton working for the measure, has
started on his return to Hawaii.
The only opposition to the measure
that has developed at this time came
from organized labor and from the
California members. The immigra
tion committee is deeply interested in
the matter. It is decided to postpone
action for the present in order to see
what the situation in the food produc
tion is next Fall. There is a grow
ing demand for the admission of
Chinese farmers not only into Ha
waii but into the mainland. Senator
Gallinger, of New Hampshire, the
republican leader of the Senate, and
Representative Snell, of New York,
have measures pending to permit
Chinese farmers to come into the
mainland. It is reported that Iowa
farmers and Southern California fruit
growers will make a demand for re
lief of the labor shortage by the ad
mission of Chinese.
By January the committee feels
that it will be better informed and
that the situation, so far as food pro
duction is concerned, will be fully
developed and that the queston of
the admission of Chinese into Ha
waii or into the mainland can then
be more intelligently disposed of.

Wholesale Liquor Men
Hope To Continue
The Honolulu Star-Bulletin of sat
urday contained the following:
That a test case may be instituted
after April 10 to secure a federal
court interpretation of the evecutivo
order making Oahu "dry," is the in
ference gained from reports mat lo
cal liquor men have found a "loop
hole" in the mandate through which
they will bo able to operate, although
making no sales in Honolulu.
Rumors that liquor men hav? sen
a cablegram to Washington asking foi
an interpretation of the section rem-
ing to the transhipment of booze is
given little credit on the street and
in law offices, attorneys and federal
officials being of the opinion that such
an interpretation can come only from
the local U. S. court.
The question has arisen and it is
declared a vital' point whether local
liquor stores can continue in business
in Honolulu after April 10 for the dis
tribution of liquor to the other is
lands, but making no actual sales on
It is reported the liquor men claim
this can be done, providing the liquor
is "transhipped" from Honolulu in the
One exception mentioned in the or
der states that the provisions of the
mandate shall not apply to sending,
shipping, transmitting, carrying or
transporting liquor to a private home
for private use, or to dock or wharves
on Oahu for transportation in original
packages and under the original bill
ing to points outside Oahu.
Disagree With Huber
On this question, however, the dis
trict attorney's office appears to dis
agree with the liquor men. The dis
trict attorney holds that a sale is
made at the point where an order is
accepted. In other words, he says, a
sale would be made in Honolulu if a
local liquor house accepted an order
from an outside point, and any sale
on this island is prohibited by the or
der. Another question that has arisen is
under what conditions, if any, can
local breweries dispose of liquors
manufactured on Oahu. Under the
district attorney's interpretation, sales
would be made if breweries in Hono
lulu accepted orders from the other
The belief has been expressed by
the liquor wholesalers that the courts
would hold that beer or sake, majiu
facturcd in Honolulu, could be shipped
to tho other islands. As regards the
question of the wholesale and retail
houses continuing to do business,
doubt is expressed as to whether
goods could be shipped out "under
the original billing."
The district attorney's office has
held already that wholesalers and re
tailers should dispose of as much of
