pointees would bo and probably today,
mora will bo added to tho largo array,
of talent who feel that they hare the
qualifications to fill tho jobs. A steady
stream of candidates! and friends of
candidates filed la and oat of Mayor
Fern's office yesterday and made elo
onent appeals, setting forth their capa
bilities or the capabilities of those
whoso causes they were championing.
In tho race for tho park superintend
ent's job, serea candidates have bobbed
up 00 the political horixon, each of
whom believe that ho has the job
cinched. This position carries a salary
of 300 a month, a house, in Ksplolant
Park and an automobile. According to
some of tho candidates it is a delight
ful job, both ' la ' summer and winter
and it is ald that a former bolder of
the job derived quite a bit of pia mon
ey from tho sale of lets made from the
feathers shod by tho peacocks in the
List of Entries
So far, tho entries In this interest
ing race are! Paddy Byan, William
Johnson, William Cullen, A W. Heen,
Henry Both, W, A. Hobby and A. K.
Vierra. Up to tho time thatsthe pres
idontial order made Oahu '.dry", PaT
dy Byan ran a perfectly good thirst
emporium in the downtown district, but
sinee the enforced closing of his place
f business, bo has been making a study
of horticulture and children's play
grounds. William Johnson was similar
ly employed at the Young Hotel bar
and from his long experience at this
former center of social activity, feels
that ho is competent to manage tho
parks and playgrounds of tho city. Wil
liam Cullen is a contractor who has
lived here for eighteen years and feels
that this latter qualification should
make him strong with Supervisor Ahia,
who is strongly opposed to malihinis
holding government jobs here. A. W.
Heen, a brother of Judge Heen, is an
architect of considerable ability who
believes that a man of his qualifica
tions is necessary for real art in land
Henry Roth, despite tjje fact that he
is a Republican and an ardent advo
cate for woman's surffrage, and made
an ironbound pledge some years ago
that he would never seek a political,
job, has deeided, that owing to war
conditions, he should east aside pre
judices and take tho position of park
superintendent if tho mayor so desires
it-1 W. ,9. Hobby, the present superin
tendent of publie works, Is picked by
tho wise ones around tho city hall to
land the much coveted plum. If be runs
to form he has all the other entries
beaten before the flag falls. It is be
lieved also that he will receive the
unanimous indorsement of all of the
supervisors. A. K. Vierra, the former
holder of the position, prior to Wood
ward's ineumbency, would also be
pleased to have the job again and has
the strong backing of Supervisor Hol-
linger. Jack Edwardson, business agent
of the Sailors' Union of the Pacific, a
late entry in the race, is of the be
lief that he could take good care of
the parks in this city and at the same
time look after the sailor business,
which is quite dull at present.

INSPECTOR CALLED INTO
ARMTJEFUStS TO RESIGN
Believed Some Solution Will Be
Found By Supervisors At
As a resiilt of the situation through
which the office of building inspector
has been lett vacant no building per
mits have been issued in the past week
and a great mass of documents and
plans accompanying applications for
permits is daily growing larger at the
building permit office. It means that
all building work for which permits
bava not bee a issued must halt until
the mayor and supervisors find a solu
tion of the problem confronting them.
I- C. Cain is still the building in
spector, though he was called into fed
eral service with the national guard
and is seeking to qualify as a first lieu
tenant. Though he is now stationed at
Hrhofield Rarraeks and therefore can
not attend to the duties of his office
as building inspector, it is now appar
ent that he does not intend to resign.
L'ntil he does resign no successor can
be appointed and no official will have
the authority to issue building permits.
C file's Poaltloa
It is explained that Cain's positioa
is that he believes that if be sends in
his resignation so that a successor can
be nameil, the possibility exists that
he may not qualify for the army and
this means that hS'Will go back to civil
life minus his job. In this stand ha
seems to have the support of'W. C.
Woodward, supf rintendent of parks,
who has also gone into federal service
and who also is holding on to his coun
As a result of the situation already
over i'J0,000 worth of new building
work is being held up in the building
permit office and this amount is in
creasing daily. It' is felt that some im- f
meiliate action must be taken and pres
sure is being brought to bear on the
mayor snd supervisors by architects
sid builders whose work is being held
It was said last night thnt some solu
tion of the problem will be reached
by Saturday when the board of super
visors will hold its next meeting. The
problem hns rnany angles.
It is held that the supervisors may
not declare the position vacanH, which
would enable the mayor to name a new
building Inspector, as a territorial sta
tute provides that members of the na
tional guard who 'are called into fed
eral .aorviee. do art forfeit Aeir posi
tions. The bosr1 ran. however, call for
the resignation by filing charges; but
it is unlikely that any basis exists for
charges of any kind ' mid it is not ex
pected that nny action along this line
will be taken. The belief was express
ed last night by Supervisor Pen Hoi
linirer that resignntiona from both Cain
and Woodward would be forthcoming
Without doubt the situation in the
permit office will have a direct effect
on the building record for the month of
Juno. I'p to the time Hullding In
spector Cain left the office about .lune
12 a total of thirtv permits for work
that will coHt ;.'t.'t,.'i.r) I vas issued. The
mass of applications and plnns that has
accumulated in the office since the office
became vacant will run to over $20,000
and includes work of all kinds from
minor alterations and additions costing
less than 100 up to jobs running over
$5000. Most of the iippliciitionN for
permits are for residences of various
