, t legal, "aa Interpreted by the attorney

Judge Take attend
Judge Ashford made It plain - that
he had nothing to offer for the Inter
pretation of the attorney general. He
said he Intended to meet the commis
sioners next Friday' afternoon and tell
them how 'they might proceed legally
to do all the things ha holds they nave
power td db. What he will offer at
thai time, however, will be for the li
cense .commissioners tp accept r re
ject without reference to the attorney
i "There are some contracts," he said
i ester day in thla connection, "that I
now enough not to attempt,
v "If that board sits on its haunches
until some scheme of action is present
ed thit meets the approval of the attor
ney general, it will be altting there
when Gabriel blows his horn."
; Judge Ashford said he had received
the letter from Chairman Cooke, but
he said this letter accepting the offer
he had made does not make the aecept
' ante ef the plan- he "had In mind eon
' 'ditlonal upon the attorney general 'a ap-
it' gxplalna Position ,' v v
f If It had, I would have dropped it
Atonse," the Judge declared.
"Although The Advertiser article on
the subject gave me to understand that
the attorney general's approver in the
matter would be a condition upon which
they would like to hear from me, the
latter from Chairman Cooke said noth
ing of this.
''I have assumed therefore that they
dw riot expect me to propose a plan of
action 'Subject te the approval of the
attorney general and I will meet with
them nest Friday as has been arranged
and tell them what they eaa do. i
"If they have the backbone to go
ahead they "can accept It. Otherwise
they may leave It alone, or refer it to
the attorney general."
Judge Aahford 'a action in the mat
tec grew out Of a letter he addressed
to The .Advertiser about a week ago
when he declared an' injustice was
being dene, to the soldiers by permit
tiny saloons of the city to remain open
after seven 6 'clock in the evening.
In his communication Judge Ash
fdrd pointed out that more soldiers
re on the street at night than in the
day time and he stated that they must
feel keenly the injustice of a situa
tion in which, civilians enjoyed privi
leges denied to them. In this con
nection he 'held that the present con
dition led to widespread bootlegging,
as soldiers, feeling themselves treated
unjustly, naturally had the impulse to
place themselves on an equality with
those about them in the matter of pri
vileges. This presented the opportuni
ty for the bootlegger, Judge Ashford 's
letter Indicated. ' ,
Replying to this communication.
Chairman Cooke of the license board
contended that the commissioners were
without authority of law In 'the mat-
ten ' He drew attention to the fact
(hat the hour of closing saloons Is de
nned by, law as eleven-thirty. 'The
commissioners could Tiot order them to
Close earlier, be contended. '
Referring to the period shortly after
the United States entered the War
when. Saloons of the city closed their
doors early in ' the evening, Chairman
Cooke asserted this was done by the
liquor dealers either as 4 voluntary pa
triotic act or It' was due to pressure of
public opinion. Later, he said, when
the federal law went into effect barr
ing men in , uniform from aaloona,
dealers here' asked to have' the old
Closing hdaf restored. The license com
missi os, he contended, .was without
power, in, the, matter and the former
cloning hottr, of , eleven-thirty o'clock
again went-into effect.
. This statement front Chairman Cooke
. brought the assertion from Judge Aah
ford that the .license commission had
sufficlSnt ' poweV t make rules and en
force them. He declared that the li
cense commissioners were fully, em
' powered to force the saloons to close
early in the evening and he gave em
phasis te this contention by offering to
give' his services to the commissioners
and show them how they eould legally
put their rules in force.
Chairman Cooke 'a letter accepting
the judge 'a offer then followed. Judge
Ashford will set forth the methods be

The fact that the Lurllne left Kahu

the Oregon from tout loss.

he may I not have to tow the Oregon
all the way back to Honolulu as he has

line, the two vessels were about forty
hours apart and local waterfront men
think that the change in rescue vessels
should be made early this morning.
i It i also estimated that the Inland

should reach "port late this afternoon.

With satisfaction by banana shippers
who had placed what they termed an
