Whether or not Willard Ohler it a
Blacker, as draft officers intimate in the
faee of faia father 'a strong denial, the
controversy . that arose Id connection
with . hit case , i over, ao far a the
draft board (a eonrerned, apd the re
unit is that Ohler must stay In Hono
lulu, Ha Is held to be a Class 1A
man, subject , to call at ay time, and
lie may neither sail, for, the Orient, mb
his family planned, nor may he "re
turn to the mainlaud.
All efforts of the Oblers to obtain
exemption ' for the young man failed
yesterday, when the district board, on.
the record presented to it denied the
young man's appeal. Vmler the terms
of the selective service act young Ohler
dan make no further appeal, but must
stand, ready to go into military serv
ice whenever the call comes, and e
must stay here.
Son of Banker
Ohler is the son of .lames Ohler, a
banker of Lima, Ohio, who has been
here with his wife for the past two
weqks and has been taking a hand in
the ease. Thp voung man is twenty
seven years old and though he looks
like a toot ball player and "strips like
an Adonis 'J, as one of the examining
physicians said, it has been contended,
particularly by the father, that he is
wholly unfit physically.
Ohler turned up in Honolulu on
March 12, preceding by a few' days his
parents, who were on their way to the
Orient. It was when Ohler sought to
obtain permit and passport to go with
them that the trouble developed, draft
ofllrers say. ('apt. H. Gooding Field
aays the young man said on the oc
casion of his first visit to the draft
office that he had registered back in
Lima. The young man said his regis
tration card hail been left back there,
according to Captain Field, who told
him he would have to have it before
permits to travel could be issued.
Ohler senior says hia son at no time
said he had registered in Ohio, point
ing out that in the registration period,
the young man was serving in the
navy. The Ohlers say that young
Ohler on his first visit to the draft
office told. Captain Held that his dis
charge pae,rjy.potIka,regis,tration earn,
had been left in a safe back in Lima.
On this point officers of the draft of
fice and the Ohlers contradict each
other.
Ohler Senior Appear
Several days later Ohler senior visit
cd the draft office. The father assert
ed that his son had not waited for the
draft, but had enlisted in the navy in
May of last year and after serving for
a period at the Great Lakes training
ramp had been discharged as p'bysically
unfit. Ohler senior said tha discharge
papers. had borne the statement "not
Hulfjcct te re enlistment. " In view of
this discharge he said his son had not
registered at . all. Tufortuuately, he
mud, , the' discharge papers bad been
left back in Lima.
Captain Field said'yexterday that he
had told, the father that even though
o man had been discharged from mill
fury or naval service, if ho were with
in the age limit, it is required that be
register, fill out the .piestionnaire and
undergo medical examination. A
young Ohler had not registered, as
the father said, it was necessary for
lii in to do no at once.
On the strength of the father's as
scrtions concerning the sou's physical
condition, Captain Kjeld said that con
ditiou wnnld . become cvivlent upon
physical examination and would result
either in rejection or in having the son
placed in soma one of the classes not
subject to oarly cull. If the young man
did not come iu either Clans 1 or Class
li, u contingency that seemed remote
from what the father said, it would
bp possible to issue a K)rmit to travel
end a passport could be obtained also.
This was the information Captain
l-.'udd said yesterday he gavo to Ohler
senior.
Is Found Fit
I.U accordance with Captain Field's
suggestion youn( Ohlor filled out a
questionnaire blank after he had rog
UUred in the, draft office here. His
medical examination followed with the
r en ii It thai young Ohlor was pro
uougoed sou of amt fit for service. He
mis given a classification as C'luss 1A.
Older appealed from this finding and
presented a certificate that had been
signed by Or. Cieorge Herbert in which
Doctor Herbert said young Ohler was
suffering with "talus dorsalis", or
something equally extraordinary, ami
held that he was physically unfit for
military, service.
Oil young Ohler 's appeal a second
oxa mi natiotrSv an made by the medical
advisory board composed of Doctors
R. I). Kill.oimie, W. ('. Hobdy and ('.
P. Wood. They called in an alienist,
IWtor Mickols, and a dentist, Ir. ().
C. Wall, and when they got through
with Ohler they sustained the ruling
given after the first examination, de
daring young' Ohler entirely fit pbysi
cully for service.
Take Final Appeal
, Oliler.'x next appeal aud the lust one
bo is able, to take Aimler the law, as
cases may not be appealed to Wash
ington on physical grounds, wus to the
district board which disposed of the
caie late yesterday afternoon. The

stepdaughter twice and then committed
suicide ,lut Friday, according to reports
reaching here by returning passengers
on inter Island steamers from the Our

Anger because she had left his home

Kanaa. On Saturday morning the
stepdaughter was still alive, but little
hope was held for her recovery.

service, the viscount assare Hawaii's

- The federal custodian said he had
set aside the first re organization be
cause it was not in line with the policy
he has laid down and not because any

intimated that under the federal re

TOKEN OF TRAGEDY
Of three Japanese fishermen for
whom searching parties have been
patrolling the waters around the Island
of Hawaii for the Inst two weeks onlv
'the leg of one man has been fuund,
says the Hilo Herald. This ghastly
proof of a tragedy at ne . was dis
covered by a relative of one of the
men, who, still looking for the lost
eampan,' aaw "tit of wreckage just off
the Puna Coast , near the Lyman ranch,
and on making examination, identified
the broken mast and the flag of the
lost sampan. Wedged in between two
rock so that it could hardly be ex
tricated, was the leg of a man, torn
oJT just where the thigh joins the torso.
Leg of the Oaptala
further scouring of the wnters for
a mile or so around the spot, disclos
ed nothing, more In the way of hu
man wrecksgle, and the leg was brought
into the Wtaiakea Wharf this morning
where it became the center of a great
crowd of sympathizing Japanese. As
the leg was that of a large man, and
because of certain marks it bore, it
was easily identified as belonging to
Captain Hinatoiahi, the master of the
wrecked sain pa a, and the husband of
the little plctur bride who has prayed
so long and so earnestly that he might
be found.
Jupt how the lee was torp from the
body of coureei Will never be positively
known. Deputy Sheriff . Henry K.
Martin, to whom the matter was at
once reported, said that it was likely
I lie work of sharks, as t Aia part of the
coast i known to be a haunt of the
big msn-eating fish. Just why the leg
was left, however, not even those who
are boat acquainted .with the ways of
sharks can conjecture, unless it was be
cause it was too much trouble to re
lease it frirm the rocks.
No Foul Flay Suspected
There is no suspicion of foul play.
The boat was an old one and cither
went to pieces on the rocks, or was
sunk further out and the wreckage
washed up by the sea.

ALLEN HELD IN JAIL
. QN CHARGE Of WliRQER
Says tfe HadltTKili Man Who
Was Pro German and Derided
National Emblem of America
"I hot my mouth off once too often,
and now I am getting mine.',!
Such Whs the dying statement made
to the police early yesterday morning
by 9. J. Walker, who waa shot t An la
Park Sunday evening by "Captain"
He,nry Alton for making Insulting re
mark about the Flag. ,
, .Walker died at the emergency hospi
tal yesterday morning. Allen, is held
io jail under a charge of first degree
murder. His case will be brought to
the attention of the grand jury at its
next session.
As a charge of first degree murder
doc not admit of hail, the man who
admits that he shot and killed Walker
will hav to remain in jail for the
present.
In Trouble Before
Walker was the man who recently
narrowly escaped being mobbed when
he refused to take off his hat ud stand
at attention when the: Flag wa pass
ing on the street. The crowd, around
was incensed over his arrogant disre
spect of the Nation's emblem and had
it pot been for the arrival, of Police
man Cramer, who rescued him, Walker
would have fared badly at their bands.
-Walker Qn a previous occasion, that
has bee cited expressed pro-Germ an
sentiments. Dr. J. T. Wayaon, who at
tended i bun iu a professional capacity
several months ago, says the man at
that time made statements decidedly
two-German ia their nature,
walker Confesses
Walker recovered consciousness for
a abort time just before he died, and,'
leerdiag to- the police, he made the
statement which ap)enrs te besrr out
the explanation made by Allen as Jlo
the cause of'tlit shooting. He "shot
his mouth off" once too often.
Walker mtnle the additional state
ment, according to Police Captain Need
ham, that he "wNhed all the Ameri
cans now in-Frauce Would be killed."
Captain Needham says he also admitted
having insulted the flag flying over
Allen's pat stand and boasted that
he waa German in, bis sympathies.
When the cottage at Iwilei, occupied
jointly by Walker and Altan, was
searched by the police yesterday, a
quantity of I. W.- W. literature was
loun'kj and card' showing Walker's
inmiilieraliip in that .organizat ion.
"Had V boet Him"
" Captain " -Allen - expresses no con
trition for having killed the uiau who
insulted t)ie-,i'lttg. In his estimation
the act was justified. , "I just had to
shoot him," aays Allen; "there wnn
nothing else I could do. I have known
for some time that lie was a Hun. but
did not report him, t .ne authorities
because 1 was gathering evidence
against him and did not want to alarm
him by premature exposure. Hut when
he iuRiilted my flag, the Vlag I enlisted
iimler in the United State navy, he
went too far and I shot, him."
Allen made anptjier significant state
meiit. "In Walker's estimation, La
Follette was the greatest senator the
country ever had, aud Ambassador tier
aril-was a skunk.".'. '
Allen, has . retained Lorriu Audi en s
as his attorney.
The Shooting
The shooting occurred at King mid
Aala streets shortly after eight o'clock
Hun day night. - According, to Allen,
Walker, who ropmodi with hiiu in a
cottage in lwilei, .had proclaimed him
self as being a pro-Oeraiuu for some
time. Despite all warnings from Al
leu, Walker had beuotue. nore outspok
eu ufcdi day. When Walker called the
eusigu that floated over hi place of
business "a dirty rag" Sunday night,
Allen states that he could not stand
the long scries of insults that he had
put up with for the' Jiaat month any
longer and pulled a .revolver anil shot
Walker. The first shot missed him the
second one struck him in the stomach
and proved fatal.

America and Japan must continue to guard against the com
mon enemy who has tried and is still trying to create dis
sension between the two nations.
Siberia as a prize will never tempt Japan tp create an
alliance with Germany.
Armed occupation of Siberia will result only after such
action is requested by the Allies.
There is danger of Germany establishing naval bases at
Russian Pacific ports, but the Japanese navy will probably be
able to control and destroy this menace to the shipping of
Japan, America and their allies.
A Bolsheviki declaration of war against Japan for the
landing of Japanese forces Tt Vladivostok will not alter Ja
pan's aims and intentions towards Siberia and the balance of
Russia, as such aims and intentions are fully dependent upon
the wishes of the Allies.

Wife Is With Him
On her first trip to America, Vis
countess Ishii, is accompanying her
noted husband. Besides the diplomat's
secretary and his wife, the only other
members of the party are three ser
vants. The Ishii pnrty was met at the Si
beria first by Consul Moroi and attaches
of the Honolulu Japanese consulate.
Later General John l Wiaser and Gov
ernor I.. K. 1'inkham and aides and of
ficial repreeantatives of Captain George
Clark, the naval commandant, boarded
the steamer and paid their respects to
the new ambassador.
Afterwards the viscount and party
left the steamer in the romtiany of
Consul Moroi and ' consulate attaches
and was driven to the Japanese con
sulate on Nuuanu Avenue. The vis
count was the guest at a banquet given
in his honor st the consulate last higbt
by Consul Moroi, the only function
given for his entertainment during his
stay in Honolulu, as he had especially
requested that there be no public re
ception arranged.
During the day the party of visitors
were taken for a drive through Hono
lulu and" into the country.
Leave This Morning
Viscount Ishii and wife remained
Irfit the consulate fast night, from where
they will leave to board the Siberia
this morning, just before she sails for
San Francisco.

The grounds of the club were attract
ively decorated, typical of .lapun. with
American and Japanese Hnu profusely
used.
The luncheon was served in the club
house, the feast being exclusively Jap
anese, tifiaha girls added to the gayety
of the occasion.
In the ambassador's party were Vi
countess Jehii, Consul General Moroi,
K. Debucbi, first secretary of the em
bassy at Washington, accompaiiyig
the ambassador from Japan.
Japaaese photographers made hun

ington, after he was informed through
his secrctaiy. K. Debuchi, that there
had been Important, international de
velopments since he had left Japan, up
on which hu views were of vast inter
est to the whole American nation.
It was after this was communicated
to the new Japanese ambassador aboard
the Siberia Maru yesterday morning
that he consented to answer the ques
tions of K'nglish reporters for a few
moments. While (lie interview wa
brief, Viscount Ishii answered every
question with deliberateness and appar
cut frsokness.
When an effort was mad to get the
viscount tu give a brief odtline of Jap
an's attitude on the Siberian question,
he evidently considered that it was
coupled with thought of the reported
Orman Finnish Jupunese alliance, for
he answered :
"If any action is taken toward Si
beria by an armed .Inpanese force it
