THE MAUI NEWS, FRIDAY, AUGUST 23, 1918.
In connection with a recent local
violation of wishes of the navy de
partment that no mention he made by
newspapers, either as news or as ad
vertising, of the location or move
ments of any vessels, a recent order
from the postmaster general, is of
something more than passing inter
est. The order is addressed to all
postmasters of the t'nitid States, and
is as follows:
"Your attention is called to the fol
lowing statement of the secretary of
the navy, published in the Olliclal
ltulletin of the committee on puhlic
information on July 6, 1918:
To the l'ress in America:
The appearance of suhmarines
on the Atlantic Coast makes it
imperative that no mention
should he made in any news
papers, either in the advertising
or news columns, of the sailing
or departure, or location, or sup
posed location of any Bhip in
This information conveyed by
advertising is as dangerous as in
the news columns, and I am mak
ing this request to all the news
papers in the country in the as
surance that, they will cooperate
with the government in its effort
to prevent any information about
ships leaching suhmarines which
mav he olT the American coast.
JOSEPHl'S DANIELS, '
Secretary of the Navy.'
"My attention has been -cabled to
the fact that the above rqtiest of the
secretary of the navy ,is being ig
nored by a number of publishers, and
from 'information- received from sev
eral sources I am convinced that the
publication of this class of news and
advertisements is actually being used
to promote the cause of the enemies
of the United States in the present
"You are, therefore, directed to
promptly advise all publishers within
the delivery of your office, that this
department will, after notice of these
instructions, regard the publication of
such shipping news as giving aid and
comfort to the enemy and that such
matter is non-mailable under the Es
