ha been Wisely -and conservatively
conceived as a war measure to give

judgement upon the borrower 'e credit

' It 1 believed that the proposed li

will tend to restrict the setivltle of
those patriotic people who have the

discriminate against them -la favor Of
those unpatriotic peorple who Ignore the
war necessities by refusing to cooper
ate. The Proposed license system la In
Hne with the act which establiehed the
elective draft in lieu of a voluntary
system of creating an army to win "th
war. Tbe sacrifices which must be
made if the war is to be won should
be made by all alike, and not rperely
by those whose patriotism, impels them
to volunteer and who would hav to
parry the entire burden unless; the
slackers are compelled to do their part.

FOR NEW HANA VHARF
Actual Construction Work ' To
Start Soon
Borings for tb new, wharf at Hana.
Island of Maui, are to be taken' next
week and It is probable that active
work ia conneetioa with the construc
tion of the new wharf will be under
way In the next six ok eight weeks.
The preliminary surveys . for. tba Im
provement were completed .by engi
neers of the harbor board abont a
week ago.
A. I- Burdick; assistant to the su
perintendent of public works, and jack
Noble, who will have . charge of the
drilling operations, will leav for Hana
Monday.
In connection with the building. of
the new wharf, negotiations for a traet
of about four and a half acre land
at the point where the wharf ia . to
be built are on between the harbor
board, and the Kaeleku , Bugur Com
pany, whioh recently purchased $75,000
i bonds, supplying th fund with
which th work is to be done. It i
expected that the sugar eompany will
give this land to be used in conneetioa
with the new wharf whieh will be from
260 to 300 feet in length.

Works Hobby said yeaterday that if It

ULTIMATUM
Widening. of the breach, be
tween Rumania and Russia was
made further apparent yesterday
when an ultimatum was issued
by the Bolshevik government at .
Petrograd. This ultimatum de
manded the immediate evacuation
of Besscrahia by Rumanian troops
that ar ppoedrtO'the- Rassiap

SUPPORT

timatum from. Petrograd has
hastened the willingness of Rus
sia to enter into peace parley.

between, the Centra Powers and
