the complete satisfaction of pond men,
fishermen and stall men.
Thla most Important fifth, which was
necessarily omitted from the announce

been act at a stated price of seventeen
vents per pound wholesale, to which
will be added twenty percent for the
retail price: Thus the most sought fish

range Jower than thnt (roni dny to day
cordinjr te te results of the auction

,Te mullft agreement called in pnr
ties who were not represented in the
debate oa other fish, and .the lessees
of, Ash pood say they will receive bet
iter treatment than they have received
heretofore. In nil ensrs the gain that
haa been realized by the public ia Ash
prices has been secured from the mid
dlemen in the InduMtry. The actual
producers of fish confess thnt they now
will receive better pnv for their labor
.aad outlay than ever before.
With two exceptions, that of hu and
that of hahalalii, the price nmionnced
in last Haturday 's issue of The Adver

to put into effect today. Hnhnlnlu

twenty twe cents n pound to twrnty
cents, and uliu has been chnnifcd from
nineteen cents to seventeen cents.
Old Agreeeoeata Pan
The. complete reconstruction of the
h business hns the effect of nullify
ing all former agreements nnd nlign
ments and relensinp the fishermen from
obligations which have been a source
of much hardship to them, it is claimed.
The dividing ef the fish business into
three camps hns now entirely been
eradicated, F.roqi this time on all stall
-.Mean iM hn emal a no ess in ttiu flak
supply of the day and fishermen are
under no agreement with commission
brokers.
Fish prices will be regulated accord
inir to each day's supply up to the es

will be the exception to this rule. Sen
mullet, however, will be pined at auc
tion with the other fish ami will re
eeive retail prices according to the
any s supi.ly. 1 he maximum for pond
mullet will appjv to sen mullet.
The first auction of fuh under fed
ernl supervision will be held at ei(jht
o'clock this morning, when the day's
supply will be'plueod nt auetion by an
auctioneer of the food administration.
At the conclusion of the miction twenty
percent will bo added to the prices
obtained for various fish and planed on
the blackboard ns the day's prices.
Meatlesa Dar rtsh Scarce
The first day's supply of fish iindct

the fact thnt few fishing boats have
been in use during the pnst week.

with relief for the depleted fish market.
By noon todav, if the weather holds

Letters Written By Suicide .Show
He Had Made, Preparations
. To Kill Wife and Himself
Finding of three letters ia the per
sonal effects of John Fuller, the Ha
waiian who killed himself and attempt
ed to take the life of hla wife with;
twe revolver shots Sunday flight, allow
that he had deliberately planned his
double crime. '
The notes were dated on Ban day,
and were evidently written few,
hours before the tragedy occurred. Oa
of these letters was addreeeed to Mo
ever opens this." In the letter'tbf
statement was made la Hawaiian' ty.
Fuller that he and his wife were "f ft
lng away."
Another of the letters was directed
to his eldest boy, in which DM Includ
ed an order for four days' wage which
the man said he had coming fo him
from the Honolulu Iron Work,, whioh
he wanted the boy to have to .buy
provisions for himself and other chil
dren until a home could be secured for
them. ,
The third letter was In the form of
a will which left all hf property to
a daughter, one of the seven ehlldren
of the Fuller family. . . k
Fired Fourth Shot l '.'
According to the statement ef MY.
Fuller,- mnde yesterday to the poll,
Fuller did fire his fourth and last shot
at her as he lay dying on tb floor with
two bullet wounds in hla bead.i ThU
statement agreees with the account of
the snlclde nnd attempted murder 'a
given by William Pololu, an employ
of May t Company, the only witness
of the shooting.
Although Dr. R. O. Ayer', of tb
emergency hospital, did not' expect
Fuller to live but a few minutes after
ho was nrst examined, he did not die
Sunday night until one fifteen oVIoch.
At one time two hours before, It was
bojicved for several miautei ha was
dead, but hevived.
The woaderful vitality shown by
Fullor after he was so desperately
wounded probably accounts for the
power which he found to fire hla re
volver a fourth time, whan death was
so near.
"Thirf. Party"
Mr. William Pololu. divorced wife
of the eye witness of the shooting
told the pobce yesterday that her form
er husband waa fche third party who
was responsiDie lor ton jealousy which
caused Fuller to take his life and
shoot hia wife. Husnieion that Pololu
was the cause of the domestic -quarrels
ni ine fuller couple -waa aatertained
hr the police 8unday night, because
of statement made by other acquain
tances or ins ruiiera.
Domestic Troubles
Seven months ago the Fullers and
the Pololus eeenpied the same house
in JJowaeJt Lane. Ist August Polo

r n!lr to Kahaako. Later Mrs. Po

band was ordered to pay her six dol-

Mrs. Pololu charges that last Wed

rpuirrol which terminated in a fiirht,
Afterwards she aara Pololu and Mr.
Fuller went up Punchbowl and remain
d until Bunday, when Fuller found
them and .brought them beak to the
hyuse at Second and South fitreets.
Mrs. Fuller denies the eharges made
bv Mrs. Pololu and tells the following
storv regarding the shooting:
"We bad baen quarreling bncause
he had sold my phonograph. Put we
hud made that up when he caught me
in nis arms ana kiaaed me. Just as he
was letting me go he drew the revolver
ami fired. The flash blinded my left

After PoIqIu's testimony regarding
nt- miuoung was taken Sunday even
mjr by the police he showed groat
!.n..-lT i got into eomm uoi eg t io n
wi'n his wife.
"I must go to see my wife," h
said to a reporter.
The coroner's inqueat over Fnller's
body will be held today. Although
Mrs. Fuller's wound ia the side of
ner race is painful when she talk,
and makes her enunciation hard to un
derstand. she will be able to appear
as a witness at the investigation.
I'nloas something not now anticipat
ed develops at the iequest, it is not
likely thnt any action will be taken
aatast Pololu because of hi former
wife s charges, it la asserted by the
police, because her statements could
not be proven so long as .they are de
mod by Mrs. Fuller and the man.

J. P. Wisser, I 8. A., department
commander, was reported by Sheriff
Charles II. Hose, and Chiof of Detec
tive A. McDuflie to the municipal af
fair committee of the chamber of
commerce yesterday afternoon, the offi
cers announcing, however, that they
would continue thdlr work in direction
other than those already followed.
This announcement came after a
memorandum on the subject, written
by General Wisser had bn read to
the committee, in which the command
ing officer said he was perfectly satis
fied with the way in which the city
officials have gone to work in cleaning
up the city, but also said that much
yet remains to lie done, and that as
long as the work continues with fair
improvement daily, the city officials
would be given a free hand, but that
"the law must be carried out."
Many Arrests Made
John Waterhniisfl occupied the
chair, other members of the committee
present being H. K. Vernon, Norman
Watklns, and Oeorge Denison.. Prac
tically all expressed 'satisfaction, at the
number of arrests made, the police stat
ing that In addition, to former. ,arreta
reported forty-one more had been add
ed, bringing the total to 190.
Secretary A. C. Brown said that in
order to learn whether or not General
Wisser was satisfied with the results
thus far, he had called uiion the de
partment commander in the forenoon
and the Intter had written a memo of
hia impressions, which was read as
above. The committee felt that it was
not entirely a committee communica
tion, but one in which the city was
interested, and it was therefore given
to the press.
Chief McDuffie said that originally
the police department had designated
thirty days as a trial period in which
to commence their campaign aud clean
up of vioe generally, to report progress
at the cud of that period, and he had
orders from the sheriff to continue the
work.
Sheriff Rose said there had been an
offer from the cUauiVer to give asaist
a nee should he ueed it, but so far
the detective department hail not re
quired it.
Women Leave Town
The detective chief said there were
certain violations of the law which he
had not yet tackled but he would do
ao immediately. As to arrests already
mad ii, a lot of the immoral wojneii had
been ordered out of town by the police
magistrate, as an alternative of going

to the (.'oust. Two remained behind as
they had married soldiers, since being
arreated. They have been given bus
peuded sentences and if they are
known to violate the law in any man
ner, they will be Bent to 'prison.
It waa explained by Hheriff Koae
that the county jail is now too
small to hold all offenders sent there.
Seven or eight women inmates are
brought to the station jail to be kept
there overnight aud are returned to
the prison each morninjf. He had
asked the board, he said, to make pro
vision for enlargement of the county
prison.
Although the territorial prison will
be vacated in another month by High
Sheriff Jar ret t aud his wards to occupy
the new prison at Kalihi, the sheriff
said the old prison was not fit to at

Dan Raich, former 'loan fund engin
eer on Maui, and a brother ef Jak
Hak-h, hae not yet arane to Finn
with the second Hawaii contingent jf.
Luc uKuiiwi uma ivonii amuuiance
corps reeruitel here, as waa believed:
by friends and relative for the peat
. L 1. - I
Kngineer Balch . wrote nearly ai
month ago that he expected to leave
for France wit hi a a week. Another,
letter received from him ays he is to'
le transferred , from the ambulamtiei
corps to an engineering .reginieut, a,
division of national service in which
he ha been trying to secure enroll
ment ever since the war began.
At the beginning of the war Baluh
left here and went to the mainland
and tried to enlist in an engineering!
regiment. He was : rejected beUM ithie,
examining phyaieiao said be had fut
feet. Thea he returned here and sev-'
eral month afterwarda waa accepted
fur the anibulaaee work.
Now, he writee, the physical regula-'
timis no longer bar him from aerviee
for which he is beet suited by tram
dig. He has written for letters recom
ineudiqg him for the engineering aerv
iee and testifying to his ability. These
have been forwarded by hi brother.
Kuginaer Belch's opportunity to
transfer to the engineering regiment
came when it waa decided by the gov-,
eminent to turn the Allentown camp
j u to one for nurses. This service did
not appeal to the engineer and be got
busy aud secured he necessary permis
sion to make the tranafer.
Although not "over there" yet,
where be has been vainly trying to
get for nerlv a year by any mean,
(mssible, Kngineer Balch hopea to go
to t rance aoon.
Meanwhile, hia Hawaii friends hope
and expect that he will aoon be given
a cominisaion, following his transfer
to the engineering regiment, as his ex
perience aud training iu tbiu profes
siiiii arc not second to the best.
