New War Revenue Tax Makes
Big Increase In Work of
There was a decided air of business
activity at the United States internal
revenue collector's office yesterday, that
being the last day for filling inven
tories and paying accrued taxes as dis
closed by such inventories. From th
time of opening la early morning until
late in the afternoon the whole sta
of revenue clerks' were" kept constantly
busy, assessing taxes, milking correc
tions and imparting Information.
Depite the great amount of publicity
given to the provisions of : the new
war tax, tbey are not yet understood,
at least by a large majority. Accord
ing to Ralph Johnstone,' people came
veutorday with the intention of y-
in;: taxes on arm bands', Japanese eon
vernation books, composition books as i
the like. These are not subject to th
tax and considerable time was wasted
adjusting the inventories..:
it. could not be ascertained yesterday
afternoon how many delinquent there
were, but Mr. Johnstone , said that
.mimy business houses were behind
with the payment of their taxes. Under
provisions nf the war revenue bill
these are subject to prosecution, Mr.
Johnstone urged those who have yet
paid taxes to do so early.: ' ..

Major Francis Oreen, chairman of
the Selective Draft board, has been
carefully checking' up the three' official
lists of the draft drawing of , last
Thursday, for possible error The
work, however, - 'Was unusnaHy well
done, partly due to the efficient work of
the relays of youwr women Who were
assigned to this' part of th) long day'
work, and partly to the constant super
vision of Mujor Green, who personalty
halted the reading of th number at
any time he peroelved that ( ha error
might be made.
All lists will be transferred to the
local boards for supplying the names in
their proper order as drawp.
The call for the draft from Washing

The first wheartlees day for th Ter
ritory will be en Wednesday, November
14. The food commission will' request
that on this day ' .all .hotel) boarding
houses, and private homea do not use
any wheat bread whatever.' It is hoped
to make every Wednesday, thereafter
wheatless day for Honolulu and the rest
pf the Territory as well. ', ;"!
At the last meeting of the food com
niiHHion the members expressed them
selves as of the opinion that so far
little actual saving of wheat (lour had
been attempted. . There had, been inuc
talk, but small results, in their opinion
and the community deeded constant' ed
ucation and urging to get it to -the
point when it would really begin to use
less wheat flour.
The efforts of the women' committee
were not slighted, but it was felt that
a wheatless day for the Territory would
aid 'them' in larg measure 1st impress
ing their gospel on the minds of toe
citizens. By having one day each week
dedicated to wheat saving it may be
possible to ascertain just how much of
a saving -sb be effected.
The food pleilge week will be planned
as soon s the necessary blanks arrive
from the food administration in Wash
ington,. One ' of the cards' is aa es
pecial blank for hotels and restaurants.
