Lo6al Liquor People Hope TJ

" Still Puzzled
; The rJer rigftdifcy President
Wilton making the Island of Oa
hu a dry root" will go into effect
on or about k'pril 7, according to
a cablegram received here yester
day ty the chamber of commerce
from its Washington representa
tive, George McK. McClellan.
Mf. McClellan's me9?age said:
"Prohibition order signed; ef
fective about April 7."
The information contained in
this message, which is regarded
as authoritative, conflicts some
what with one received yesterday
by ' the Star-Bulletin from its
Washington correspondent. He
cabled that the President signed
the order March 2, to become
effective in thirty days. That
would make it effective April 1
which would make the date one
to be remembered as something
more than merely "April Fool's
It is understood that the de
cree is 6 be tamed out by the
war department, from which a
general order definitely fixing the
date will be issued.
Liquor Man in Dark
Following the first, ruport of the de
cree, in which' nh reference wns made
to the time when the order would be
come effective, I'umor dealers of thn
city cabled to Washington asking
when they would have to close and
also askirfg Tof1 other details. No an
swer has been raeived to this me
Mage, though it It possible that an' an
swer haa been sent ,apd has been de

have little to nay, an they point out

en ere I public and have not been given
any hint of what the general require
ments irllk tiej tflJnr the new order of
things, ittdwitfii heard yesterday in
dicftte thnx' TnM ' are hoping to Have
something out of what they regard as
the wreck?" '
Things Hoped For
Compensation, foreea i sale to the
government of cogitiiundccred stocks
of gooils, partial refunds of f H.Ural
and territorial tuxes paid for liquor,
and compensation for unexpired li
censes are some of the things to which
liquor men are panning their hopes
now ii ii. I which they trust will lighten
the blow that baa fallen.
Onhu will go dry under wholly new .
conditiwue, diffariug from those that
ulitiiiiied in cities nnd states on the;
mainland where prohibition has become I
effective. While prohibition was
brought ubout iu the cities and states'
tliut are now dry by popular vote, the J
Island of Ouhu is made dry as a war
measure expressed by the. ill of the
President under the powers congress
hi:s given him.
Many Questions ,
As the condition is brought about by
military order and not by statute, the
whole situation bristles with questions
that may or may nut be answered
when the formal order is received here.
It is bolievjed in many quarters that
the order will nut concern itself with
civilians, who . may possess liquor for
their own use or have it shipped in
to them without restraint. I'nder the
new order of things Honolulu will not
eoiue under the provisions of the Webh
Kenyon act, which forbids the trnns
portation of liquor into a prohibition
area. The order, it is held, does not
make Honolulu a prohibition area iu
the ordinary sense of the terms.
Whether the manufacture of beer
anil liquors on Oalui wilt be forbidden
when the ehiuigo goes into effect Is
another detail that will not be ex
plained until all matters iu connection
with the' order are known. It is held
that the (President 's order merely
means au enlargement of the live mile
zone around military encampments,
and the brew.fty.., qiopide lire hopeful
but far from eoiindenV
Kvery shade of feeling from auger
au.l disgust to smiling resignation is
to be found aiuijig liquor men o the
city who realize''now' that the end of
their business is in sight. ('resident
lavid H. Lewis of l.ovejoy and Coin
puny was one of those who smiled
when he was asked yesterday how he
viewed the situation.

mystery, as every one who appears to
be of draft age haa to ceeure special
permission from the selective draft

All tboee who have had any commu

he i not insane, and most of them
assert besides that he appears to be
exceptionally ,syell informed about
everythiag except seamanship, which he
has sworn1 was his profession.
While only about twelve' dollars was
found in the effects of Murray when
he was first booked for investigation
he seemed before that to have had
pleuty of money, and had, iu fact, tried
to get Jack Kdwardson, the secretary
of the Sailors' Union, to get him on a
ship for which be is said to have
offered a large sum of money.

his familiarity with Bouth Orange,
New Jersey, his knowledge that there
was a man of the name by which he

asylum in -that State, his own rational
utterances, and the evidence that he
was supplied with funds from some
source, Murray is growing to be Inure
of a mystery than ever to Hounlulans
who have had reason to investigate
iiuu erbaps, again, excepting the two
federal officers who it is presumed
agreed to release him from detention.

The attack on the Meyers' child snd
the robbing of the house comes as the
aftermath of a aerie of visits the
same Filipino had made this week with
another Filipino companion to. the
All of these visits, usually between
the hours of tea and eleven in the
morning, were made under the pretense
of wanting to buy plant or get laun
dry work to da. Only one of the men
has been ia tb custom of coming up to
the house, the other remaining in the
street outside. But on the visit .venter
day morning only oae of them was seen
by the Hawaiian girl.
On Wednesday morning the same
Filipino who threatened the life of the
Meyers baby yesterday called at the
house, when be wa told tu remain
away by the girl who was again alone
at the time.
After every viit of the Filipino
something of valu was missed, but
mostly pluuts, Which were found with
the cutlery secreted in the bushes near
the home, whieh it is presumed the
theives intended to carry away after
night had come.
Following the departure of Mrs.
Meyers from the house yesterday morn
ing about ten o'clock, the girl put the
baby to slefp , ia the front bedroom,

G. W. Schuman and Eric Burgess
Quarrel and Latter Says He
Will File Suit For Slander
An aftermath of alien enemy com
plications which are i1 to have been
connected with the withdrawal from
the Kchiiman Carriage Co. of its man
ager H. H. I'nxson and Kric W. Hnr
geas brought on a tiit yesterday be
tween Hurgcss nnd U, W. Hchuman, sec
retary of the concern, which carried
he details of the entire affair into the
hands of federal authorities snd will
be the basis m an action for slander
in the circuit court.
The grounds for the interiew with
I'nited Stntes Attorney H. C. Huber,
following a iimrrei which tooi plnce
ln the Schuman building yesterday
morning, were assertions alleged to
hnve been mnde by young Kchumnn
with regard to what he cnlled per
sedition of alien enemies by tlurgess.
Bchnmsn's nlleoed references, in the
conrne of the disturbance to Burgess'
connection with the national guard will
result in n slander suit which will be
entered within two dnys, nreordin" to
a statement bv Ruiyess.
Will Fil Suit
Burgess said last night that the al
lien would he taken by him st once
in as effort to recover damages for the
references winch Schuman had made to
him and to his loyalty. He also admit
ted that the ease had been made the
subject of nu investigation by the ua
tionnl guard officers jind that the stnte
ment of thee officers' will probaldv be
made a i. art of the case.
According to the statements of per
sons who witnessed the quarrel, Bur
gess had come fiom the Hoyal Hawaiian
(arage, where he has been employed
since leaving the Schuman Carriage
Co.. to the I.. I', (leorge bicycle shop,
Which is in the Hchnmnn building,
where he encountered the secretary of
the Schuman company.
"Say. you better nuit this talk nbout
lien enemies." Schuman is said to
have culled out. "You are not abid
tng by the instructions of the President
of the United States when you refuse
to lea e us n lone. ' '
Th in w ii followed I iv rniHrkn from
Burgee to the frVrt that he hm done
nothing nf the nature charged and that
the rules of the I'resident were neu
frailty rules before the wnr.
At this point. Hurgess will contend
iu his action, Schuman launched upon
him u tirade, charging that Burgess hud
been remiss in his duties toward the
government iu his service in the nation
a I guard which implied that he was
chargeable as a slacker. This. Burgess
explained to I'nited States Attorney
Huber yesterday afternoon, referred to
the time when all married men were
discharged from the national guard,
prior to the time when Burgess was re
enlisted and also registered fur the
The complaint of Burgess will charge
that public statements casting doubt
upon a man's faithfulness to the Na
tional Guard constitute iu time or war
a slander, under the laws of the Terri
tory. I'nited States Attoinev II ulier de
clined to tske nctiou upon the state

that the remarks complained of did
not constitute sedition but were rath

Maui, and this sale comes as a result nf
the desire of the Maui people to regain
ownership of a company which wns
originally controlled by the Millli resi
" The deal fur the sule of the Hawa
iian 1'iucnpplc Company' majority
holdings in the Haiku Friiit and Pack
ing Company is practically com
pleted," snid Arthur Bice last night,
when he was questioned about the ru
mored sale. "Th deal is virtually
closed," he added for further confirm
ation. He ml vn need the information that
bis brother. Harold Rice, Lindsay nnd
T.avares were not only actiug for them
selves but for other iuteresta.
However, he did not verify "street"
talk that the Maui Agricultural Coai
mny was heavily interested in the pur
eh.isc of the big block of preferred and
common stock iu the Haiku company.
He ijualilied reference to this rumor
w it h the expression:
"You know that Haiku stock is
widely scattered on Maui," leaving it
to inference that all the Maui stock
holders were interested in the deal.
Hale of the majority of the stock to
the Maui interests by the Hawaiian
Pineapple Company puts an end to .a
recent report that the Armour Packing
Company would purchase the control of
the Haiku Fruit and Packing Company
with the view of entering the pineapple
industry lice as rivals of I.ibby, Mc
Neil 4 I.ibby.
