- DRAFT DELINQUENTS
Those Who Failed To File Ques
Tba sheriff's office began yesterday
it search for deliuqueut among regis
trable who did not respond to the call
for filing their questionnaires within
tke atipuiated time and who are now
Uable to punishment of vurying de
grees. Tb extreme penalty for failure to
anawar the. questionnaire is one year's
imprisonment which can be imposed
by Vitd States District Attorney
H. J. Hnber in extreme cases. All cases
ef . delinquents will first come before
(h registration board for cxniniuatioii
into the cause of tke delinquency, ru
der tk regulations of tbe war depart
ment tbe board is given wide latitude
ia the action that is taken in the;
cases that are brought beforo them.
Only i in tbe ease of wilful evasion of
th questionnaire can they be turned
over to tbe federal authorities.
Ia ease where the facts seem to
justify it, t lie board may permit delin
quents to All out tho questionnaire and
proceed regularly as the others
hav dbne. In some canon tho board
will classify the delinquents for draft'
Without examination and in cane they
do not report for duty tkey will bo
treated as deserters. The wilful eva
sion of applying in response to the
elective draft is classed us a misde
meanor. Only one case of draft failure has so
far ejum to the attention of the I'ni
ted' States attorney, that being the
ease of Joe Medeiros who was arrested
several' days ago at lfilo. He was
held to the federal court on a charge
of wilful neglect.
On account of the fear that German
propagandists will seise the oppurtuu
Uy afforded by the Mayor's Hall to
Bight for the spreading of venomous
lft era tn re and statements adverse to
th government, a special police force
of one hundred men will be employed
by acting police chief Ham Kerrern.
ThO'fear of Aermnn agents is said
to kse been based on Indications of
activities of these insidious influences
which hate' revealed themselves chiefly
i th Red Cross work, which is said
to bate' shown a derided slump trace
able' to tbia propaganda.
The' extra police wdll leave the Y. M.
C. A. at aeven thirty, headed by the
Royal Hawaiian Band, and will inarch
up Alakea to Heretauia Street, thence
along Fort, Hotel and Bishop Kl reels
Where they will mingle with thu crowds.
TSir chief activity will be a close

Moore Shipbuilding Corporation
of Oakland Will Laurwh Three
Vessels Id One Day
Much attention hss recently been
given to the Intended launching of
three nhipn on the name day from an
Oakland, California, shipyard, of which
a former well known Island resident
is one of the partnership owners and
one of the thrpe active executives in

Thin former Hawaii resident is And

manager or the raanhsu plantation on
the Island of Hawaii.
Of thin shipbuilding concern, the
Moore Shipbuilding Company of Oak
land, and the intention to launth three
vesseln at the same time, a recent
article in the Oakland Tribune says:
Simultaneous launching of three
9400 ton venneln for the United States
Emergency Shipbuilding Corporation In
one day in the prouram set for the
Moore Shipbuilding Company of Oak
land. The triple launching is planned
for an early date next month.
The launching of three ship of this
tonnage in one day from one yard will
break the world's record and will give
to the 1'nited States freighters aggre
gating 2H.200 tons, a total never be
fore reached in one day' launching.

The men are showing a great interest
in the race against time, and" are co
