is taken liere as ihstring the passage of the rneasure in the Senate.
The house committee on territories has already reported favorably
on the bill, and it is confidently expected that it will pass the house
with virtually no opposition. (Delegate Kuhib is on the ground,
working tooth and nail for its passage, and reports that hve been
received here from Washington Indicate that within a short time the
measure will become law.
WISSER NOT ADVISED YET
Interest has centered on thi question when President Wilson's
order declaring the Island of Oahu a dry zone will go into effect, and
General John P. Wisser, head of the Hawaiian department, said last
night that he was unable to throw any light on the matter.
11 have npt yet had any official notification f the order," Gene
ral WisSier said last night. 1
, j V General .Wisser said that if, nj time is 'designated in the order,
"this wfll mean that it is to became effective immediately after it is
He said, however, that in orders of the Kind a definite time When
they are to become effective ordinarily is fixed. ,
.AArieW advanced was that When, the full text of President Wil
son's decree is received a date upon which liquor traffic hiust cease
on the Island of , Oahu will be announced, and. after 'tbV order re
ceived,' another, putting it in force at the time designated will be
issiied'by tcbm'mahder of thf HiwaiUAydpartnSint.' iWheh this

Dr. A. H. Heath, of New York, is

"There should be hftnifted of thou

A rabtdt grower who visiteil us re-
cent I y said: Belgium harm are very
prolific under ordinary 'conditions. One
doe will raise from thirty to forty
young each year. The cost of rais-
ng a rabbit to good eating age on a
farm would be about twenty-five cents.
la the city it would cost more.- They
will eat anything you Iced, them. I
like to reel tliem oats eoaaeu over
Bight, boiled in the morning, stirring
in some alfalfa meal, corn chop, ami
bran while hot. I also feed hay, ear
rots, 'turnips, beets, Irttncs, dandelions,
plantain, wild lettuce, a,ud horsq weeds.
Tbe best way for a beginner to
start Is with a pair of trio or of good
pedigreed stock, which can be bought
for nve dollars a pair at three months
of age. 1 wonld not advise, -putcbaa-
ing stock under that age; it is better
to buy stock at the breeding age. '
Rabbits are cleaner and easier to
raise nnd hsndle than , chickens, -j Thy
require only feed and water twice each

nnd after dark, as they . will eat ia
the dark as well as In the day. The
