such disregard of the national neces

need for conserving food for our Allies
in Europe and for our force overseas!
we are urged to go without our usual
foods In order to show' patriotism. Are
we to understand that this deprivation

that the civilian are supposed to be

The tickets were originally provided

permits are here in such quantities
that they will be used, also for the orig

It was reported yesterday around the
streets that 50(H) men are to be called
into the Island draft, but this was pot
confirmed at either army headquarters
or the selective draft headquarters.
The rumor was based on another 'that

Announcement of the new harbor
ruic wa maue yesterday following a

three ; federal branches of the govern

' i PVeeetat at this conference were Cant.
lOeorgo K Clark, commandant of thf
Pearl Harbor naval station; S. C. Hu
ber, "United States attorney; Malcolm
Franklin 'end Bnymer Sharp, collector
and deputy collector of costoma. The
conference waa held in the office of the
United States attorney.
' When Collector Franklin made public
the agreement at the conference of the
three department he' said It wo in
order to gain- just as com plot control
of Island shipping as' is now exercised
over ' transpacific ships entering and
'clearing 'from this harbor.' He would
not admit that the departure of the
Puck with- an -enemy alien owner wae
the cause of the Conference, although no
denial of this we made by him. 1
Wont Clow Cbeck? Hereafter (
.Other familiar with the purpose of

crested by the 'Mailing f the Puck wa

lished. The action taken was entirely
'n the Initiative 'of the eustoms and
navy mea, with the advice of the Unit
ed States attorney, and withant pecitlc
orders fr6m Washington to do so.

South Kona Firewood ' and Shipping

veys of Inter-Island trade, frankly ad
mits that be 'belibve ' the agitation
i raised over the sailing' of hi company's
vessel is responsible for the new cus
tom and naivy harbor regulations.
In explanation of the action taken at
the conference Collector Franklin said:
"We are determined that no ship
hereafter is going to get out of this
harbor without' Our knowing the per
sonnel of those-' aboard, ' th port to
which she is going and th kind of car
go carried."
Sampan 8nbJfct to Btilea
rlaiupans, he said, could and pr'.bably
would bo compelled to undergo the same
examinations given to' otheT Island
used vessel; The rales 'are to apply
to the ships of the Inter-Island Naviga
tion Company, the Oahu Shipping Com
pany, the Young Brothers' tugs and
launches, all small craft, including
freight aud fishing sampans, and such
vessels ss the Puck operated for what
ever purpose in the Island service.
The island vessel will be subjected
to the same eh inspection upon ar
rival as are the bigger vessels, but this
will be only when it i determined or
desired to mak sueh examination.
District Attorney Explain -.
Passing of th buck regarding the
sailing of the' Puck' M6nday with an
enemy alien aboard and virtually in
control of tha ship, despite tha theo
retical control of. the captain, brought
it back to the district attorney yes
terday. 1 '
When told this, the United State at
torncy volunteered the suggestion that
pe'rhaps Ooelvers' position aboard the
vessel was annlugona to that of an
owner of a private yacht, "He and
his (fiiests are neither passenger nor
members of the crew, but are permitted
to travel on the yacht I would say
that loelvors' being aboard the Puck
was something the sarne."
He reiterated In exnlunntlon K nf
course Doelvora could not travel on the
I'ui k as a passenger, because, she hail
