An alien enemy, after the second warning, has

district on the waterfront. Quite possibly he has
seen how little attention any other posted enemy

, health anil morals of its wards, the men' of the army
and navy, tbey will take the most effective course, and
the aiont effective course is aot to attempt to catch
law violator in saloons, but to cloae up the saloons.
J 'It ia all-very well for the poKce commissioners and
the police department heads to say that they are stop-
?ing the sale of liquor to soldiers and sailors. The
sets are that uniformed soldiers aad sailors are get
ting liquor. That is plain fact. And it is a disturbing .
fact, because the mca who are in our army and navy
are under very special obligations to remain fit and
efficient, physically and mentally. . And any man that
deliberately sets out to tempt these men to buy liquor
whick will affect that fitness and that efficiency is do
ing something which is affecting his country's wsr- .
time efficiency, and that is not only something anpa.
trlotie; it is something that might well be character

. That would be a shame to Baa Francisco, such bold ,
advertising to the country that San Francisco cannot
manage its owa affairs and the blame would rest
upon our law enforcement authorities. Let them heed '

just now to all the islands of the group. In a short

that they will be taken into the

A correspondent recalls attention to what has
Keen mentioned previously in The Advertiser, the
continued importation of sugar to Hawaii: Such
importation seems ridiculous under present condi
tions, when we are being urged to cut down in the
imported food to save cargo space,
Attention of the food cum mission is called to this
once more, not that the sugar imports are so very
great, but that they are wholly unnecessary. We
can get along without loaf sugar very nicely and
sweeten our tea with locally produced granulated.

Chicago, la recent report said that
in his opinion the great majority of
men called to servlee in the selective
draft, but who failed to report, did so
through ignorance and not with any
desire to shirk their duties. " It is an
injustice, ho said,' to brand those men
aa "slackere".
'I believe the number who willfully
failed to report ia insignificant," said
uenerai carter, "ana these men should
aot be branded as slack era. ' Bend them

on tho' mountain side and lived in a
little hut about seven mile above Hoo

and tho party, not having sufficient
warm blankets, suffered considerably.
However, the task was stuck to until'
it was seen that aa oven mora exhaus
