"Cooperating wifh Representative

the federal government build and
maintain a fish hatchery and experi

more than ever now for food and there
is every reason to believe that congress
:nay see the wisdom of this move ajid
give Hawaii the benefit of a fish hatch

create fish wardens before the federal

sider the bill for tho relief of the
homesteaders whose titles to their

somewhat by the illness of Judge

M.ior Merrinm sid thnt a portion
f the commanding general's reply
ontained tlie recommendation th- t v
rv male citien capable of acquiring
military knowledge or able to perform
military duty should do so to be pre
pared for any emergency. It was held,
' said, that all male residents here
should be capable of acting in a mili

time when everv mnn hei-n mnv Kuv, I

It was recommended also bv the
ommandiuj veneral. Maior Merrinm
suid, that the guard be used a. a re
serve, or to replace regulars called
away from the Island.. In the event
of the regulara being called away,
there would be a necessity, he said, for
the guard to take their places at vari
ous posts. This would meau naturally
that the guard would have to be en
larired considerably to cover tho field.
It would not mean merely putting in i
so manv men in at tn till not v. I
tinned, it would mean niittino in men
qualified for aervice.
"It is correct" Major Merrinm con
tinned, "that the guard has been per
mi t ted under orders to recruit its
strength by bringing in men with de
pendents, and it haa the privilege of
taking in a. many men a. needed frbni
