Mr. Cooke denied flatlr that any of

campaign han been defeated nince h
has acknowledged bin inability to e
tnblish a fish scale that will give rea

to all concerned. It wan conceded
however, that an evident attempt t
create a falne fish scarcity had bee
defeated by Mr. Hnher, which, unde
the new ruling of Mr. Child woul
, coupled with present weather ennd'
tions. hnve boosted the price of fin"
to i-nhenrd of fl.-mre.
The complaint on which the 1'nite

Statement By Child
Mr. Child's statement relating to M
"etnrn to the old auctioning methods,
is en follows:
"Owing; to the supply ! of and de
mand for flnh, It will be necessary te
regtilnte the prices from day to day.
The only way in which .thin enn be
doref ia justice to tha public In to
maintain the anction ' nyntcm, prob
ably on a different basis and one
which will net the flshermen a better
return for their labor and their com
modity, and this will incrense the
production of flsh,
" Negotiations are now under wnv to
place a limit on the miction price of
flnh for each month of the venr. and
on each variety of fish sold in the
public market. Thia price will be
agreed nnon between the fishermen
a,nd the fond administration.
"After this 1 done the anction will

lie educated away from thnt prefer,

general of tha Hawaiian National
tiiinnl, ia now Major Samuel Ivan John
sonj Infantry Reserve Corps, by ap
pointment from Washington, the cable
message being received yesterday after
noon at Hawaiian department head
quarter. Major Johnson In directed to proceed
, to Citinp Fremont, Palo Alto, California,
for assignment as adjutant general of
the (With Brigade, and will leave for
California as soon as his affairs with
the Hawaiian National Guard are ar
ranged. In accepting the commission in tho
army, Major Johnson renigned an com
mander of the Hawaiian National
(luard brigade, but his status as adju
tant general la the guard will be a
matter of fntare adjustment, thin be
ing a territorial office.
Major Johnnon will doff this morning
tho nilver star which have adorned
hin uniform far several yearn and don
the gold oak leaves of hin new com
mission. Question of Successor
While many rumors were rife lant
evening nn to who his successor may
be as commander of the national guard
brigade, it was assumed by many that
the adjutant general 'a department may
lie more or lens directed by the Ha
waiinn Department, with the bureau of
militia affairs in closer touch and au
thority. Major Will Wayne, assistant to the
udjiifajit general will continue to be in
I active charge of the office affairs of the
I brigade and, more or lens a directing
.authority at guard headquarter in the
general work of both regiment of the
'guard. He may' not bo promoted bc
t cause of the jiossible general super
vision or me guaru asnairs irom army
This proaagrs, along with the request
from Washington for the speeding up
of the selective draft work bot.h in the
guard and with the civilian draft age
population, an early call to active ser
I vice of tho guardsmen.
The situation with (ieperal, or rather
, Major, Johnson, n his connection with
the Hawaiian 'National Guard is this
He is appointed by the President ss
a brigadier-general to nerve at tho head
of all the Hawaiian national guard
unitn; he ia a territorial officer in his
capacity of adjutant general of the
guard. He resigns his brigadier-generalship,
but retains his post as adjutant
general, awaiting a later adjustment
Inasmuch as several officers of the ter
ritorial government have been called
to the active service, such as Major
Charles R. Forbes, ' ho still retains hia
title as superintendent of public works,
and Major I. M. Htainback, judge ad
vocate of the Hawaiian Department,
who still retains hin office an attorney
general of. the Territory, it is assumei'
that Major Johnson will retain his title
as adjutant gencVul in the guard.
It wan asserted in army circles last
night that a regular army officer will
shortly be appointed to assume com
mand of the Hawaiian National Guard
brigade, with probably the title of
colonel, but not as brigadier general.
Major Johnson entered the Hawaiian
National Guard service during the days
of the Republic of Hawaii an a private
in F companv, which he later command
ed as captain. His rise in the guard
was rapid, and ita present strength to

Major Johnson is a Russian by birth
and has lived in Hawaii for the past
quarter of a century.
