not intend to have any large outstanding forces
to the northeast, in danger of being cut off. Both
positions evacuated are along the Ypres-Staden
railroad and on low ground. The retirement has
probahly heen toward the higher ground a few
miles to the south.
The Washington military critics point out that
the Germans must continue fighting below Ypres
or leave themselves open to a counter attack that
ccruid completely turn the tables , and might cut
off a great part of their offensive force, the many
divisions they have thrown into the Armentieres
salient. This now is a huge, almost circular, bat
tlefield with a comparatively narrow neck, the
Messines ridge pointing directly at the gap
through which von Hindenburg is sending his
armies. A heavy British counter north from La
Basse or south fnrm Ypres might close the gap
, and leave many Germans encircled.
On the other hand, a decisive German success
north from Baillcul or Wytschaete would leave
a larpe oart of the British army with a narrow
line of retreat, with no chance of

Lawlessness Cannot Be
Condoned' In Hawaii ,
The Advertiser is in
thy with the dissatisfaction
meeting of the Vigilance Committee yesterday
with the course of the department of justice, we
feel compelled to express regret at the implied en
dorsement of lawlessness in the committee's form
al action in the case of "Captain" Allen.
That Walker, the man shot to death by Allen,
gave plenty of cause for loyal anger and aggra
vated the ex-navy man into shooting is admitted.
That he has frequently, persistently, openly and
impudently expressed his anti-Americanism and
given plenty of cause for action by the authorities
is very true. That there seemed slim prospect of
legal action in his case, judging by precedent, is
likewise admitted. But that any citizen, however
his loyalty was outraged by this I. W. W. dis
loyalist, should have taken the law into his own
hands and carried out an execution without au
thority of law, is something which cannot be safe
ly endorsed, even by indirection.
We are in this war to make law respected. We
are fighting Germany because Germany has de
clared by her actions that she will obey no law
of God or man that interferes with her own de
sires and checks her ambitions. We are fighting
for the sacredness of treaties and the safety of
human life and liberty. And, even in th flame
of our aroused patriotism, we cannot afford to en
dorse lawlessness, even under the cover of loyalty
and respect for the Flag.
We appreciate the wave of sympathy that is
sweeping this community for Allen. Certainly we
believe that there are extenuating circumstances
to be advanced in his behalf, and, in the trial be
fore him he has our most sincere sympathy. But
that this community, as represented by as power
ful a body as (the, Vigilance Committee, can afford
to go ott'tocotd fes. endorsing the taking of human
' life without legal warrant we do not believe.
( This is a law abiding community and must con
tinue to' fee -such.
We are well within our legal and moral rights
when we condemn conditions that provoke law-
! lessness and urge action against known traitors,
but that is as far as we can go and not run the
danger of writing ourselves down to the German
level, where law is merely "a scrap of paper", to
be torn up and thrown aside when "necessity"

Food Administrator Herbert Hoover says: "In
order to count on a maximum production of food
in this country we not only have to increase the
productive units but we have to face substitution
for the units lost by putting our men at the front.
It is absolutely vital that we get all the nonpro
ductive units into production. Fvery boy in Ger
many is in active productive service today. Ev
ery boy we can get to produce in this country will

hope that every young man of sixteen years of
age and over not now permanently employed, and
especially the high-school boys of the Nation, will
enroll for farm labor in the Boys' Working Re
serve, which is in fact our second line of defense".

Because the official did not believe
that vessels Of more than 8400 ton
rould float, contrast given to the vari
ous concrete shipbuilders have been
limited to that number of tons, and no
more. There are two ships being built

In order to be able to obtain con
tracts from the government for ships
of greater tonnage, the Han Francisco
Shipbuilding Company would have to
place a guarantee on all the vessels
turned out, of aign aa agreement with
the government .whereby should any of
the large vessel prov failure, the
government ' would be favored with
about one-half of tho losa. To the lat

that the ability of successfully launch

in s patent controlled by his company,
whereby a diagonal steel reinforcement
with a fbree-lneh mesh is employed as a
foundation for tbe concrete.
The 3400-ton ship will continue to be
built until further agreement between
tbe two parties, so that the government
will not be at sueh a loss in ease any

As a result of her cargo catching
fire while she was on her war to India
from Japan, the Japanese steanrer Col
ombo Maru, of the Nippon Yusen Kai
sha line, the first vessel to sail on the
new route between Japan, Hawaii, Cal
cutta and New Tork, has been given
up by officials of the firm as a total
loss, according to the Japan Advertiser
of a recent date. The ship wo burned
at .sea, when about ISO milns from Goto,
Japan, short . distance . from . Moji,
which -port ihe, bad last left, enroute to

The fire which aued toe destruction
of the vessel was probably started in
her cargo, as, it is reported, her cargo
consisted of a large supply of safety
matches consigned to the south from
When off Goto, about one hundred
and fiftv mile, fire was seen rising
to the deck, and immediately wireless
messages were flashed to Moji for as
aiatanee, which was soon after des
notched and which arrived much too
late, as the vessel was rapidly sinking
and the flames spreading out or. control
of the firemen.
According to the report, the Seifuku
Maru, of another line, was close by
when the distress signals were riaahed
and was in the nick of time in ar
riving on the scene. She succeeded in
landing the tired crew of the Colombo
in safety at Nagasaki. The crew num
Captain Masuzo Poki, commander of
the Colombo, on his return to M.oji, re
ported to the Nippon offices there that
his ship was a loss, as lie saw the
flames close to the surface of the wa

the ship, causing her to sink slowly.
A ship was sent out to locate the
spot where the Colombo Maru was last
seen, but did not succeed in finding
any trace of the vessel, for she was
lost out of sight. The vessel was of

LEAVE SHIP ASTORIA
Because the captain converted their
hip into a nulling vessel, the eight
officers and crew of the former mortor
shlp Astoria, which cleared from this
port in February bound for the south,
ieft the ship and are returning to the
mainlnnd. They left here en route to
Ban Francisco on the Oceanic liner
Sierra yesterday afternoon.
There was no trouble between the
captain and the crew, according to the
latter, who said yesterday that they
preferred to return lo the States rather
thnn stay with the ship. The Astoria
is now a sailing veaael, and is at Apiu,
which port she reached after sailing
According to a member of the crew,
the Astorin, shortly after she left thia
port, met with an accident, losing
one of her propeller blades. Tliis is

ship into a sailing craft, which dis

DRIVE, SAYS CARTER
Former Governor Elated Over
Red Cross Prospects
It was an enthusiastic and; much
clnted George R. Carter, president of
the Hawaiian branch that returned
from the campaign of organization for
the Bed Cross on Kauai. "The Garden
Isle," he said, "is going to do her
self prnud in this second war fund
drive. Kauai is up on her toes to set
i swift pace for her sister Islands. Sel
dom have I seen such, general enthusi
astic response as greeted by ' request
for volunteers throughout Kauai. "
"Week ago Hunday," he continued,
''there was, by popular consent, a great
mass meeting at Ubue in place of the
usual sacred servieos ami over a thous
and people attended. Not a soul who
could get tbere was absent 0d prac
tically every individual of consequence
fcr miles aronnd was on hand. I was
aked to ttflk to them, provided I
'wasn't tootired'. I replied that so

idea- to express there wo no 'Such hing

cannot plead weariness when asked to
fare untold hardship and '. probable
death, and we must not forsake them
in this lir p tit struggle to emancipate the
world from the ugly grip of tyranny.
"I tried to bring home o them," he
rehite I, "that this is no time to think
nf investments in anything bnt the
r;i-ctit enterprise through which Amer
ica nnd her allies are striving to make

this time for personal use over and
above actual necessity is making of the

ami liberty. No on wanta this war to
drag on and on through years of
privation, turmoil and suffering. There
is but one way to terminate it quickly.
Thnt is the loyal and generous support
of our aims by service and funds.
"Retrospection," he significantly
added, "will not be pleasant for those
who do ' not now give generously of
their time and goods. When peace
comes I would not like to look upon
the physically broken and mentally
haunted who will come back to us from
the bell over there, nor think upon the
tliousandH who will never return to us
iu the flesh, and feel that perhaps my
indifference had added even an hour
Of misery to one of these."
