The Governor publishes a copy of a letter sent
by' Mr Castle to' the Delegate, as attorney for the
territorial food commission, and various other cor
respondence, including some of his avn misin
. formative cables,' but the "expose" lacks one vital
document Thai is a letter sent to the Governor,
or to the office of the adjutant general, by General
Mann, yi charge of the bureau of rhilitia affairs at
Washington!- In this letter," which the Governor
' does not publish, it is specifically and ' explicitly
stated that the main reason which determined the
bureau not to mobilize the national guard of Ha-
- waii was the cabled request of Governor Pinkham
to Secretary Lane that army transports be used
td bring two thousand Filipino laborers to Hawaii.
' - That letter is on an official file In Honolulu,
easily available to the Governor, The fact that it
was carefully excluded from the record made pub
lic by Finkham yesterday and' the further fact
that the cable to which it refers reached Wash-
. ingtori ahead of any, other . communication deaW
ing with the guard and the labor situation ought
to be illuminating.

conclusion that "the public can now form its own

Guard of Hawaii has been prevented in its aspira

Even with the suppression of vital facts and the
perversion ' of others, the Governor cannot slide
' from under, nor saddle the responsibility of the
' national guard fiasco upon anyone but himself.
, , It . was his cable to Washington regarding the
urgency for transportation to Hawaii of Filipino
laborers that knifed the national guard, and he has
,(i thejproof d jt in his own hands, -The fact that a
part of his motive was to make trouble in a busi

The question now seems to be whether we want
the road enough to invest a quarter of a million
in it at four percent. If we do, work can be start

We have talked for years concerning the neces

and Ways and means ot improv

is facing war conditions in grave earnest. One
suggestion recently advanced has been that the
pleasure automobiles, furniture
the finer classes of clothing be dis
after the war, in order that the
employ may be transferred to the
Another suggestion is that during the war the
labor-day be lengthened. It is pointed out that
men ought to do more work in the course of every
twenty-four hours, rather than less. The resump
tion of the ten-hour and twelve-hour days, volun
tarily, as a measure of war economy would do
the various stores in Honolulu to-
M. day will result in an almost unanimous expres
sion of opinion that the ' soldier trade has grown
greatly during the past few months. Further in
quiry will reveal the fact that the recent growth
began shortly after the passage of the Army Bill,
which made it illegal to sell intoxicants to men
in the uniform of the army or navy. Partial pro

silence descended over the Capitol
yesterday in regard to the official letter on file
there explaining who prevented the mobilization
of the National Guard of Hawaii. That letter was
written by General Mann, in charge tf tht bureau
of militia affairs at Washington, giving all the
reasons why the uard was not called and stating
that these reasons were all regarded as having
some substance in view -of the previously cabled
request of the Governor that army transports be
used to carry Filipino laborers to the Islands. Why
do we not have that letter published in full? Only
because it puts the blame where it belongs. That's
Wisconsin will soon have a chance to place it
self on record on war questions. A special elec
tion is to be held to select a successor to the late
Senator Paul O. i lusting, accidentally shot and
killed last October. Will the voters' of the State
repudiate LaFollettism by electing a patriot, or
will they-send to Washington another of his ilk?
Secretary Lane states that he is too busy now
to take up the matter of the governorship of Ha
waii, which is a pretty direct way of saying that
a change has to be made and will be male at the
first opportunity. Hawaii will know the name of
the next Governor by about the middle of January.
Maine sardine packers entered into a voluntary
agreement, with the food administration whereby
they materially reduced the price of their sardine

i More deJlils relative to the important
government work which takes W. nT.
Hpalding of the Bpalding Construction
Company to France aad mention L of
which was made in The Advertiser
some weeks., since, have been received
from the' mainland. It was learned
some time since that he was to go aad
take charge of government building,
representing the Boston firm which had
secured. the contract. He expects to re
turn tp Honolulu aome months hence.
When the news waa published in Ho
nolulu, first it was not known that the
work contemplated was ndarly ao large
as it now appears that It will prove
to be. The following article, publish
ed under ft Washington date line in
the Chicago Tribune from ft staff cor
respondent tells of the work ahead:
Contract for the construction of aa
immense ordnanee depot and arsenal,
which is to be established in connection
with the overseas base for American
forces, has been awarded to a Boston
Payment for the work will be on the
basis of coat plus 10 percent. It is ex
pected that the total expenditure will
be well over 100,000,000. Lathe and
other special machinery for the arrenal
are already being "delivered ant the
cost of this equipment alone is estimat
ed at 46.000,000. The site cannot be
Flan. Vast Ball System
It may be said, however, thnt in eon
neetioa with this construction' more
than 1000 miles of standard gauge rail
way will be built leading from tui
depot to the sector of front assigned
to General Pershing. Special engineer
organizations recruited largely from the
Pennsylvania railroad's staff and head
ed by experts from that company are
now in France preparing for he inau
guration of the work.
The objection of the French official
commission recently in this country pre
vented the awarding of these contracts
to French firms. It was the original
plan pf the war. department to have
the : work dons,, by. French firms .' but
tney were told plainly that the French
government would prefer that not a
single maa be withdrawn from French
industries, as this would mean the sub
traction of just that amount of support
from the fighting forces.
10.000 Workmen listed
It was therefore determined to trans
port the large number of workmen ne
cessary from the United State and not
less than 10,000 have been listed for
the purpose. All raw materials and
machinery'. will be mt from America.
It is learned that in arranging for a
site for the overseas bsse the United
States obtained from the 'French gov
ernment, at the same time ft form!
lease on a large tract of land Immedi
ateiy artiaeent to the port selected.
For the duration of the war, there
fore, the United State will have ab
solute . jurisdiction over substantial
section it French territory. The term
of the lease call for a nominal rental.

Clever ; Press Agent '
In Story Of Escape
Czar and Princess Not On'
Steamer But Russian Prima
Donna and Her Husband,
Named Romanoff, Are Pas-,
- Hats off to the cleverest press agent
story ; of . modern times. . Old P. T.
Barnum never did better In his palm
iest days.'. Old or new, at targe or In
captivity, it is. without doubt the best
piece' of work eitani iof Its' kind. .
It was all about th Princes Tatiana,
apparently, and the reading publi fol
lowed with breathless Interest from
day to day the steps of her reported
progress in escaping from the land of
th former Czar to the home of the
free. And now it seems that instead
of th Princess Tatiana there is travel
ing' to the United Htates Mrs. H.
Romanoff, Rnsslan prima donna. . ..
Ia tb cleverly disguised- dope cent
out, dope so clever that th Associa
ted Press wa carrying it daily as
news atory, it seemed likely that Nich
olas Romanoff, former Cr.ar of Russia,
and Princess Tatiana, would arrive in
Honolulu yesterday. In preparation
for this event Detective MrDuftie and
eoteri of well-groomed sleuths were
on hand when the ship docked to act
as th royal bodyguard. . ,
But alas ; and alaekf Th Royal
Romanoffs did . not ' arrive and many
individuals are bemoaning their loss
In having their . suits pressed two
week ahead of th usual time. It was
a dejected looking band of detective
that eventually filed along ; the pier ;
nd up town in th direction of their
eobwebbed apartments . on Merchant
Street. .. . ' '
By atrang coincidence ft Mr. and
Mrs. H. Romanoff figured on the pas-.'
eager list yesterday, and for ft time
it waa opined that this couple were
the deposed Cftar and ' hi daughter, 1
traveling incognito. But it was a mis
take. ' Mrs. II. Romanoff is famous
Russian prima donna journeying to'
the'Htate with her husband. .
Escape Btory I Diner adl tad
It . waa generally ' disclaimed : by
ship' officer that either the Csar or
Princes Tatiana Romanoff had escap
ed from Siberia and were making their
way to Americai The belief bad pre-!
vailed for a time in tb Orient that
tho Romanoff . had . ' eluded their
Suards, but the story has since been .
iscredited, according to -one ' officer
yesterday. -, ''
. A recent San .' Francisco exchange
comment as follow on the rumor i '
"Th story f the escape of the
former Grand Duchess through ft mock
marriage, which was accredited to Ivan
Narodny, one of the member. of the
New York office' of the society, now is
regarded by most . Russians . in tho
United States and many others as
somebody' good joke."
The Russian consul at San Francisco'
has also denied tb rumor, and declares
that the story was 'one of the biggest
newspaper hoaxes yet perpetrated.
