or frittered away in enterprises thai are not
vital to the needs of the country or cont riluit
ory to the conduct of the war.
Any enterprise contemplating an appeal
to the investing public for money to conduct
the same, will be encouraged to submit ii .
proposition to this commission and if it shall
meet the approval of the commission, a certifi
cate to that effect will be given, which will, of
course, have the value of a gilt edged recom

loyal investor to put money into only siu li in
vestments as carry the approval of this com
mission: or at any rate to give (hem the pref

soundness of the various inves: meats that may
come under its notice, but also, presumably.
The Red Cross Shop
The Hawaiian Chapter of the Ameri
can Ited Cross will be the richer by a
few thousand dollars nt the end of
the month as a result of the oponinK
of a Red Cross Shop in Honolulu on
Ck-tober 1st. The Shop is proving an
unqualified success and every morning
sees the place crowded witii cusloin

the concern was opened to the
purchasing public so many articles
had been sent in that a second store
hud to be opened in the salvage de
partment rooms. .
The Shop is conducted by a com
mittee with their various helpers. All
the stock consists of donations of
either cast off or new articles. Every
thing from a pair of shoes to a pair
of vases, once owned by royalty, or
from a popular novel to a wash in ;
machine, have been turned in and
sold. Bric-a-brac, clothes for every
body, furniture, canaries, tapas, etc.,
have passed through the shop.

which is turning over many dollar
for the lied CYoss, is the Salvage De

"Your trash is our cash." Here junk
of certain kinds is collected and sold.
This branch takes care of the dispos

As Mrs. Hpdemann. director for the
islands is making an effort to estab
lish a Hed Cross Shop on Kauai, an
outline of the way it is carried on
will be of interest.
A shop superintendent is at the
head of the sales girls. She must ar
range to have every article coming
into the shop placed in the stock room,
which is set aside for the purpose,
and all articles must lie properly valu
ed and priced by the committee which
she appoints for this work. She si ea

head of all the " I in yets". She a re

whether thro!!; h their individual ef
fort, through treasure drives, or
through publicity department, it is
her duty to see that a continual flow
of merchandise passes through the
shop so that sales may be continually
studied. The publicity manager
should be in touch with the press.
She must reach the public at all times
so that it will open garrets, store
rooms, and purses in furtherance of
the shop's activities through moving
advertising, posters, the press ami in
other ways. She must be a medium
between the public and the shop.
The Cashier-Treasurer receives and
banks all money received. At the end
of each morning she tabulates the
sales noting them In a simple ledger
and sees that the amount on band
balances with the ledger.
A renovating manager is responsible
for all the fixing over, mending, press
ing painting, etc. that is done in the
shop. She gets all comodities into lit
condition for sale.

perience, they will know a good thing from a

great care, and weed out anything that is II

This is manifestly a very excellent pro
vision, and one which will go far toward the
conservation of liuancial resources for patriot

from unwise or fraudulent, enterprises.

has the right to make wine for his

ney S. C. Ituber and has brqught forth
the following letter addressed to
"Information reached me this morn
ing that a report has been circulated
In some parts of your Island to the
effect that under the Sheppard law a
person has a right to make not to
exceed five gallons of wine for his own
use. Should this report be true, 1
wish to take this opportunity of cor
recting it. I have understood that in
connection with the food regulations
which forbid the use of certain food
stuffs and fruits for the purposo of
making liquors and wines, there was
such an exception, altho I do not have
such rule before me.
"However, as to provisions of the
Sheppard law I nm positive and the
language of that law is, 'It shall lie
unlawful in the Territory of Hawaii
to sell, give away, M AN UFACTl'K K.

scientific, sacramental nr medicinal
purposes, for which purposes
the samo shall he under such rules
and regulations as the governor of the
Territory may prescribe, etc,"
"From the above you will notice
that wine, being an intoxicating li
quor, cannot be legally manufactured;
in fact, that portion of the law giving
the governor authority to promulgate
rules for Its use does not include
rules for the manufacture.
