itome h-question to get enough ' food

"Ti ose of hone product U the

Child. "People should eat more inland

There it ao danger of sugar short
age here at any time, Child think, but
the wheat . flour ' actuation . he ' state
ia growing graver daily; .The lieenaing
of baker will make a big decrease in
the use of ugar and fat in bread mak
ing, bod will likewise make a definite
faying of flour in quantities that ean
be easily computed. . ' - .
"The day of the bread ration. will
come," aaid Child yesterday, 'an4 tt
will not be so far oft) a people think;
It i my opinion that we will be- cut
down twenty-five percent in our al
lowance of ' flour when the baker' li

It no please or by your leave about it.
The government will timply take our
usual flour order and eat them down
one-quarter, and we ' will' be left to
get alonjf as best we many by filling
in with rornmeal and graham flour. "
"The saving that will be made by
the bakers' license i egulatloo can ea

are using now and can calculate how
much less they will use Wnder the regu

will be allowed only two pounds. Thar

Need Two Wheatles ban
' The only remedy or preventative
against bread rationing ia the greater
saving of white flqur," Child continued
'One wnearle.' day la good but we
should have two wheatles day a week
in ordei td stave off the scarcity. Many
j'cople now are having only bno wheat
less meal instead of the full day, and
even though the observance of the

"This is matter for individual de

In accor.l with'the vlewa of the

tached units were organized.
'"Tbue provision waa made to police
every Island, relieving the United

also prepared to intercept any landing
enemy until the navy could get' into

'The orders requiring a maximum

Colonel Hathaway To Be Install
' ' ed By Agent Anderson
Transfer of the affairs of the office
of internal revenue collector will b
made to Col. Howard Hathaway; the
newly appointed collector, by Revenue
Agent W. W. Anderson of Ran Fran
eisco, in charge of the western division.
H Is expected that Revenue Agent An

of the office will be made next Satur-

Johnstone was notified that the trans

The new collector hails from Everett,

of the firm of attorneys,' Hathaway,
Bee be k Hathaway. According to the
Kverett Tribune, wfcicb recently print
ed an article concerning the appoint
ment, Colonel Hathaway is a native of
White toue, Lancaster County, Vir
ginia. At one time he represented
Richmond anil Lancaster counties in
the Virginia legislature and from 1880

Concerning the appointment the Eve

Intense training for both officers and
men of the national guard will b in
angurated on and- after January 1,
101R, now that the report on the na
tional guard ramp have been finished
and some of their contents known. It
ia understood that the reports dealt,
in part, with the necessity for more In
tensive instruction ' for both commis
sioned and enlisted personnel of the
guard and the order for the new sys
tem will be issued nt once.
Oyer forty pereent of' the officer
are comparatively 'new men to their
positions, and the same fact applies to
tbe enlisted men. Mince July 1, thi
year, more than 900 men have been en
listed 'in ' tbe First Regiment alone.
The large - number of recruit is ac
counted for by the fact that early last
summer a large 'majority of the mar
ried men ia the guard were dropped
a a war measure, and their place
were taken by unmarried Ones.
From the time of their enlistment to
the opening of the ' guard camp at
Kawalloa Inst month, most of them
had bad but twenty-four hours actual
drill, eonating all of the nights they
put in at the armory drilling with
their companies. ' All the time spent in
drilling at nights, added together,
makes up a total. of only twenty-four
hour. Owing to' the large number of
eompanle in the guard, aad the size of
the armory it is not possible to carry
6a intensive drill work for each com
pany more than once a week.
'-'A school for officer if to be opened
and various school for soldiers will
be opened, so that every method of in.
traction necessary to train the guards
men in the technical side of military
work will be given.

pany of the new rates announced by
the shipping board which the 'message
said had been made immediately ef
fective: , .,
The announcement of the amount of
increase of base rate is about what was
expected following the announcement
of the increase in sugar 'rates. .. It is,
however, of much interest to local mer
chants and businessmen. Naturally it
affects more vitally the heavier goods
than the lighter as, for instauce, ce
ment, building materials and machin
ery. On Hour the raise is twenty cents
a hundred p.oun.K Generally the in
crease is two-tenths of one cent a pound
on what Hawaii imports so It in seen
that there ia no occasion for a raising
of prices on lighter weight goods.

ritory are nettled in a decision In
Brown' ease banded down yesterday
by the supreme court. AH of th jus
tices agree in the decision given, which
reverse tbe ruling of Judge L. A.
Dickey of the fifth circuit. :
The part of the decision which fixe
the status of teacher is probably its
most important element and ia a fol

a school teacher by the depantoeai af
public instruction enters '.Into, a eon
traet , with the Territory to serve a
such teacher for a periled time, th
department it iiiumv ao legal obliga
tion to reapiolnt him at th expiration
of the contract, or to assign a reason
for not reappointing hio. or to give

History of Can

of the school at Walmea for five year
befora he wa glvca one of the one-year
contract thai are now used by. the' de
partment of education. .Before .the
time of tbe expiration of the contract,
August 31, ll(l, the' hoard of achool
commissioner notified BrWn that . he
would not be reappointed to the posi
tion. Ia the ease a presented to the
supreme court reason; for the decision
is not gone into, but. when the an
aouneemenr was made, and later in tbe
proceed lag before the lower court it
waa couteoded that Browu bad neglect

In its decision tbe supreme court

ruling in thi connection says:
Pepartnent'f Power -
V Tb department undoubtedly ha
the power to obtain th services oi

definite , and bmiteX period i l -;tim,
The period for which such services my
be contracted for is within the discre

A contention advanced by Brown wa
that a 'contract waa understood.. . Thi
wax based on a statute, of )9J3, an act
