Scoffs At Lee Todd
FOOD ADMINISTRATOR
BRISK, BUST, BRUSK
Takes -Time, However, To-Say
That Mee'tina Talked, For An
Hour and Did Nothing
General- John II. Boper is f tub
born old fellow who get hi idea from
Ttaa Advertiser ami Lite Toilil hat '
head full of wil.1 project that don't
amount to anything, ia taa onlnUa Of
J.'F. ehiM, federal food administra'
tor.
Mister Child can hare no objection
to the quoting of hia opinion, a they
wer- eprsad ia the presence of hia
office force and a representative of The
Advertiser after a meeting on the flab
situation. In hia oflic yesterday af
ternoon. Present at the meeting were
GeberaJ Boper, Lee Todd, Oswald
Llghtfoot, and Elien Low.
General Boper represented the Vlgl
lance Corps, Leo Todd the cooperative
market, and Oswald tyghrfoot the ter
ritorial market. Miater Child had-
few- contemptuous remarks to make to
tbi office force about each of those
present except Llghtfoot, who" la In
sympathy wtfh the views of Mister
Child, and Eben'Low, who must also
agree with him as ho anid "Khen'a a
good fellow," ai the general airing of
opinions took place.
When asked what took place at the
meeting, Mister Child said simply and
lucidly "Nothing",
The meeting had taken well over
an hour. The fish situation must have
been at least mentioned once. It is
hardly likely that busy men would
have come there and spent an honr
in airy periflago without getting down
to the subject on which they wer
working. But the dictum waa iuuedi
INotbing had been done.
Nothing But Talk
"Waa there no conclusion of any
sxert reached at this meotingl" Mister
Child was asked. "Was it only talki"
''That's all," answered ho. "Come
now, I 'ra a busy inun; hurry up, tell
ie what you want to know."
"I want to know altont this fish
meeting" was the answer. "Isn't
there any new whatever about it!"
"None at all," blithely answered
the food administrator. He was search
ing hia desk' for a cable on flub which
bad been sent to llilo.
"What waa it about!" he waa asked.
"O, I didn't want to Rive It to
yea," he replied. After which there
waa nothing to do bat leave.
Prior to the conversation quote!
above ha was talking about the stub
bornness of (leueral Bo per, who evi
dently stuck be the' facta, whish he. had
dag nw'for" himself wlttitntt feeing urn
vineed by Mister Child V arguments
about fish being cheaper here thaa else
where and Honolulu being luaky tha)
fish were no higher, and his assertions
that nobody in the fmh business made
mom money than he ought to.
"It's plain to see be reads The Ad'
vertisex, bee a u Be he gets all bis idoas
from it," said Mister Child. "How
else does he come to have such ideas?"
Anything But Fish
"He's a member of the Vigilance
Corps," was tbn answer. Mister Child
did net express bis opinion on . the Vig
ilance Corps, but only of General
Bopor and Lee Todd, who was a "sas
sy man" with half -baked unprnctic
able schemes, according to the expres
sions of the food administrator.
Perhaps), now that they know each
other and are all ho niue and friendly
together, as they must be after spend
ing an hour in chattily discussing
"hoes, and ships, and sealing-wax, cab
bages and kings anything except fish,
uncording to Mister Child there will
be something really doing at the next
meeting of the men who are interest
ed in the fish situation of Honolulu.
Hut, according to Mister Child, men
who are at the heads of large business
firms and men of prnctirul business ex
perience spent a whole hour and did
net say one thing worthy of being re
membered or passed on to the public
by the federal food administrator.

loan secured by mineral lands which
the Central Powers have granted for

this class, their places could not well
be filled by others.

the district board and jn each instance
both men were placed in Class 1 on the
ground that both being unmarried, with

Wfiere To Get Off
Japanese has met Japanese, in the
columns of The Advertiser on the sob
ject of prohibition, missionaries and
Mr. Wilson. In nnswer to a com
munication that was published' last
week, signe.l " Ynmatogn, " "n loyal
soMir"'of Nippon takes up the dial
lo'nge id debate and goes to the, mat
wfth him in a letter which he has'sent
to this paper. In a weighty syllogism,
propounded in true scientific stvle. the
new writer concluiles that Mr. Wilson,
being no "dam fool," the Japan
ese ambassador at Washington being
also a wise man, then it follows that if
anybody has to go from Honolulu it
will be the niisbieuariea. The letter
follows:
"Mr. Yamntoga, Honorable Kir:
With my eyes I read your expressions
in the morning paper, The Advertiser,
that you prophesy that should the Hy
poc.rite Missionaries' families force pro
hibition on the great majority of the
inhabitants of these Islands, who are
Japanese, that fifty thousand Japanese
would depart. As a Japanese- soldier 1
inform you that your fear are not to
take plaoe.
"This, my honorable brother, is the
secret: Our very great ambassador at
Washington bo say to Mr. Wilson, the
President, we very good friends now
but you make my people very mail if
you lot those hypoerit in Honolulu
have prohibition. All the time our
great ambassador he hope that Mr.
j Wilson toll him to o to the devil so
I Japnn can shoot hell out of Honolulu
i with her greut. battleship and inukve
j Honolulu part of Jupan.
" Mr. Wilson he no dam fool. He see
all this. Ho Mr. Wilson he call the Mr.
, Congressman to see him and say to
them you gentlemen cause me great
1 trouble with your foolishness. T)o you
: know Japan very mud about silly Ho
j iiolulu prohibition billf They net like
children before him, Mr. Wilson, and
i say oh we so sorry. Mr. Wilson suv to
1 them Japan very fine friend and we
must be good to her or she raise hell
if wo get fresh. Now Mr. Wilson he
very smart man. Don't fear anyone
huve to lenve Honolulu it be the Mis
sionary not Japanese.

ADMITS HE KNEW OF

i '
Returns Cynical Answer To Com
mitteeman: "Is Town Uf In
Arms Over Situation?"
Sheriff Charles H. Rose was asked
point blank yesterday at a session of
the Municipsl Affairs Committee of the
Chamber of Commerce why he had not
cleaned up Honolulu before, if he was
able to do tjis now under pressor of
the army authorities, and civie organi
zation, and waa unable ta give a sat
isfactory reply.
A deep silence followed the question,
which , was put by Norman Watkins.
Rose finally admitted that there had
been direct violations of the law,
when he replied in the affirmative to
a supplementary question to that ef
fect. The sheriff even went so far a to
question whether "the town was) up In
arms," when Mr. Watkins asked this
question :
','Why is it necessnry for the whole
town to get up in arms before a crisis
like this is straightened out!"
"I the town up in armst" parried
the sheriff.
"Apparently," replied Mr. Watkins;
"they were up to the time the last
grand jury reported."
Wasn't On Trial
"I understand it is upon the Initia
tive of General Wisser this campaign
is started," said the sheriff.
"All these (referring to a statement
of arrest made which had just beert
read to the committee by Chief Me
Duffle) are direct violations Tf the law
are they not!" pursued Mr. Watkins.
"Yes," replied the sheriff.
"Why were these violations of the
law allowed to go on for month with
out the police taking the action they
have been taking in the last two or
three weeks! " continued the inter
rogator! Mr. Watkins then added,
laughingly, that the sheriff need not
consider himself on trial because of
these questions, but Mr. Watkins said
the committee wanted information in
order properly to eonsider the "clean
up campaign," which bad been placed
in its hand by the chamber of com
merce. The sheriff made no answer.
"Why waa it necessary for the pnb
lie to le aroused before the police
moved f"
Chairman. Jdhn Watcrhouse at this
juncture asked if. there had not been
a difference jn the policies of, the dlf
feintfaTOjv.Hi$s(mmah4flra .boit , tb
town i hcinj closed , up. and- opened
"if"'"- ... .
The" sheriff replied he thought there
had bepn differences in policy among
them, and aa to w hat each wanted done
in the city.
Chief McDuffie said different com
man. ling gencrnl here took different
views of certain elements of vice.
Strong vs. Wiaaar
"Gencrnl Strong" said McDuffie,
"nskod me any time a soldier wns
caught in an opium den, whether he
was smoking or not. to turn him over
to the provost guard. General Wisser
said he did not' believe it was a viola
1 inn to be in opium' dens unless be
was caught smoking opium.
"Now they have leaned a general
order that any soldier caught in or go
ing into a bawdy house or opium den
should be arrested."
Mr. Waterhouse asked if General
Mrnni? did not hnva soldier guards
placed around or in front of certa
ouestionable places. McDuffie said
this was done by 'tlnr'pTOfnt gjmtd:
The sheriff complained .that he had
been given another job of guarding
the N'uunnu Valley water supply, and
it was well worth wMlff it this cam
miign that McDuffie had had the as
sistance of the military authorities and
were dirinir very well.
OonwnunltT For Decency
H. K. Vernon, of the committee, ask
ed why the police did not first go after
these forms of vice before a general
complaint was laid. "I believe I can
voice the sentiment of this committee
in this," said Mr. Vernon", "that the
better element of the community is
the taxpaying element and yon have
nothing to fear about our backing
these mutters up. Yon caa have our
backing. You can know we are back
of vou in the enforcement of the law."
George P. Denison said of xonrse
much of the law and order to prevail
here depended largely, also, upon the
man sitting on the poliee court bench.
Mr. Waterhouse said he believed the
police hud splendid cooperation in the
police court judge.
At this juncture MsDufHe said he
wanted to make a statement, but not
in the presence of newspaper reporters,
and the two press members present
were asked to leave while the chief
made his talk behind closed doors.

Miller, Charged With Suborna
tion of Perjury, Freed Com
' plaining Witness To Be Tried
Through a mnr.e of lurid testimony,
much of it admittedly perjured, Fay
Miller, an enlisted man, won his wy to
freedom yesterday in the circuit court
before Judge H. B. Kemp. In the latest
case against him Miller was charged
with subornation of perjury and the
verdict was given by the jury after the
prosecuting witness admitted on. the
stand tost she had told one' story some
weeks ago before the grand jury, an
other denying this at a hearing ia Cir
cuit Jude;e William H. Heen's court and
in testifying yesterday reverted to the
original account she gave before the
gram! jury.
Following the grand jury investiga
tion of the case when the girl, Rosic
Aldricb, told her first story in the grand
jury room, Miller waa indicted on a
statutory charge based on the allegation
that he had forced the girl into a life
of sham.
When this charge was heard before
Judge Heen, Miller was freed on the
girl's testimony. On the stand nt this
hearing she denied all the things she
had told"lhe grand jury, saying Miller
whs not responsible for things she hail
done.
As a result of this case a new inquirv
was started bv the grnnd jury and
Miller waa again indicted, this time on
a charge otr subornation of perjury,
and an indictment wns also returned
agaiust the Aldrich girl charging her
with perjury.
The new charge against Miller came
to trial yesterday morning before Judge
Komp, when the variations in the tc-ti
mony of the witness for the prosecution
developed; The girl said the storv she
had told the grand jurv was the truth
nnd she asserted she hail falsified in
Judge Heen's court after she hud been
induced to do so try Miller whom, she
said, she met in front of the Judiciary
building as she was entering it.
Miller then presented testimony slew
ing that he had entered the huiliTTir;
on the day of the trial in Judge Heen's
court by the rear entrance and had at
no time that morning been in front
of tho building.
The charge of perjnry against the
girl is yet to be heard.

Hopes To Re-Establish Them In

Business
In eoiineitiou with a Hawaiian

trial organizations. Mayor Joseph J.
Fern has euil.srked on a crusade to
make the native race of the islands
not only lex dependent on other racial
organizations but eventually success
ful bidders for some of the big reward
f Hawaiian production.
A return to the old pursuit in th
fishing and agricultural field which,
the Hawaiian lnixe relinquished almost
completely to the other races is the
goal that the mayor is seeking, anil
ho has the support of many prominent
llswniians.
"My people have been asleep, and it
takes some predicament like the pres
ent food situation to bring them to
a realization of their predicament,"
he said yesterday. "We have awak
ened at least to tho fact that we are
dependent un Chinese and Japanese Or
ganization for our dsrily sustenance
and this situntion haS gone to the
point of hunger which was in many
cases required to quicken the easy
going HawRiians to a sense of their
plight.
Old Days Are Oon
"The old days when our people lived
an easy, care free life with very little
physical effort and with a standard of
living that made very small demand
On them have passed," said th mayor.
' ' They must all realise, now, that' thay
must rise up and compete with the
other races who have come to their
Shores or they must eventually disap
pear as a race. It is time we all com
bined our efforts to the problem of
being self-sustaining and I think our
efforts in our new organization will
accomplish that."
A tabulation of land which is avail
able for agricultural pursuit for th
Huwniiatis has shown 1H0 acres near

their willingness to let at small figure
were formerly Chinese rice fields which
were abandoned recently when rite
dropped to so low a figure thai it wa
no longer profitable to work them.
These are now Jyinp 'uttiitv'n met
count of lack-of labor to cultivate
them, and it ia here that Mayor Fern
sees the prospect for reestablishing his
people on the land.
The efforts to reduce the cost of
poi t its old time figures and remove
it from profiteering is of equal impor
tance iu the plans of the Hawailaa
organizers with the effort to alleviate
the fish sitnation. Mayor Fern an
nounced yesterday that he believe
the Hawaiian fishermen will respond to
the cull and the funds may be quickly
provided for financing the Various
phases of the program. Tbe fish plan
depend somewhat on the success of the
city in establishing a free fish mar
ket which would be efficacious in per
mitting the native fishermen to dis
pose of their catch with little over
head expenditure.
It is the plan of the Hawaiian cham
ber to enlarge its activities until every
market product, home raised and im
ported, is handled and distributed un
der a perfectly working plan of or
ganization. Mayor Fern explained that
nothing in the nature of boyrott on
established trades ia contemplated, the
effort being merely to place the Ha
wniinns on an jual footing with other
nationuUties.
