While Not Included In Act Publie
1 Sentiment Strong
With the navy taking the lead yes
terday by advaaalng Its one hour, the
daylight saving piss will probably be
adopted In All activities of the Terri
tory within the jiext few days.
Hueh is the belief expressed yester
day by business mes and officials who
are confident that, . even though the
change ia not enforced in Hawaii by
the war department as it ia on the
mainland, it most follow here in order
to prevent disorder sa to time wora
than the eonfusloa of tongues at the
tower of Babel.
In snticipatioa of action by the Gov
ernor ia the matter of. making the
i lisnge general, the special meeting of
i he chamber of commerce which wee to
have been held today for tho purpose
of going ba record has been cancelled.
"The matter is now la the bands
of the Opvernor," : said Raymond
Brown, secretary of the chamber, yes
terday, "aad for this reason it would
be useless for as to take anv action.
The whole thing Is ia bis hands."
Merchants In Favor
By a largo majority the merchants
nf the city are believed to be in favor
of the general application of the
scheme as a war measure. The general
application of the rule on the msinlsnd
ontatns all manner of possibilities for
mixups, it is argued, as well as the un
Icsirsble situation hers when certain
irnvernment departments have adopted
the rule sad when boats will depart ac-
nrding to the sew schedule of time. .
The navy change which became ef
fectire yesterday Includes the Pearl
itartior nsvr- yard, the Allen Street
naval station, all wireless stations on
Oshu and the naval radio office. All
locks in these departments were
moved ahead one hour and the naval
ployes now begin work at eight in
the morning by eivilisn time snd stop
it three. . , ,
Expected orders hsve not yet sr
nved at armv headquarters but it is
nought that by the middle of the week
all of the military activities will be
m a schedule one hour ahead of the
locks in Honolulu,' and calculations
will have to be made to allow for this
'iscrepancy in all transactions. Also
all calculations for time with the
oast such as cable communication
in. I the arrival of boats, will have to
take into account the fart that Ho
nolulu is now three hours snd twenty
minutes behind San Francisco in time
nstead of two hours and twentv min
utes as was the case before the main
land adopted the new time. The cable
ompany, not being directly under gov
rnment control, has not changed its
'ime as yet, preferring to wnit until
he change becomes effective through
nut the city.
Trains San Early
The first predicament that arose yes
terday tas a result of the . disrepancy
tn time between civil and naval clocks
was in the matter of the O. R. k L.
trains running from here to Pearl
Harbor. This was settled by running
them one hour earlier than formerly to
onform with the t'earl Harbor time,
although much difficulty was caused at
this end. The Pearl Harbor train
were also one hour ahead of time, ac-
ording to Honolulu time, iu arrivine
from Pearl Harbor. This change wil1-
"ontinue on that branch today although
the railway company is awaiting the
vtion of the tiovernor before making
'he readjustment over its entire sys
W. F. Dillingham, president of thr
chamber of commerce, regards the mat
ter in the light of patriotism and takes
the stand that Hawaii should fellow
suit in anv matter that has been al
ready put into force on the mainland
as a war conservation measure.
It is inconsistent to expect one
half or the population to regulate it
self by one time and the other half
bv another time," he said yesterday.
Mayor is Waiting
Mayor Joseph J. Fern was about to
!ssue n proclamation in favor of the
adoption by the city and county de-
riartments of the dsvlight saviug regu
'ation Ruthori'd by the President,
when he was asked to attend the meet
;ng nf business men and the Governor
on Katurdny, but will now await the
eceipt nf additional advices from
Washington before doing so.
"I attended the meeting," aaid the
ihsyor yesterday, "and agreed with all
present to defer any action concerning
putting the daylight saving order into
effect until certain other advices are
received. Messages have been sent to
Washington and u reply should be re
"Personally, I am ulad to see this
order put into effect here, for it only
mphssizes the old time habit of the
Hawaiian ho rose w ith the first blush
of dawn and got about his work in the
taro patches and potato fields, and went
out fishing snd completed his work be
fore the sun was at the meridian.
"The Hawaiian still likes to get up
early and commence whatever duties
he has in mind. It givAs him more
daylight hours, after completing the su
thorired and ifti-in I hours of work, for
"I will Usui- a pi o.-lnniat ion when
the informal ion called for is received
