MAN OVER AGE IS
CAUGHT IN DRAFT
Porto Rican From Big Island
Finds Himself In Singular
Plight But Escapes
Beyond the draft kp nd yet taken
by the draft, exempt from call anil
jet railed Into service, taken from his
home and sent to Fort Aimstrong, was
the position in which a disgusted I'orto
Rican found himself. It. wai a rate
parallel to the man in jail whose at
torney told him he could not be ar
rested. That man rnnld only say "But
I 'm here" and that was the situation
of the I'orto Kienn for all of the
proceedings were on the fare of them
' Innocent men kn've been sent to
prison and aerved long terms while
the guilty men remained outside the
penitentiary walls in the bright and
joyous sunshine of liberty, secure in
the fact that blindfolded justiee might
be unusually blind. Hut the man who
sought to evade service through having
another unwillingly impersonate him
will have to face an irate Porto Rican
and has Uncle Sam hot upon his trail
bringing retributive justiee. And Uncle
Kara has, the culprit will find, a Ion 4
Among the three hundred and more
men who kave already arrived from
itilo district, sent by the draft board
of the Big Island metropolis, was a
heavy set Porto Rirnn wearing a
bristling mustache. He did not appear
to be in the best physical condition,
but he caaie in with scores of others
Bring AJU Documents
When he was brought before the
mustering officer be had all his registra
tion ca,rds and papers and induction
notice.' These he passed over to the
busy mustering ofheer and his stnff of
lerks, was checked olT and "sent to the
iisroWr.g tent. He doffed his civilian
lothes and stepped into the shower
jooth, emerging with a blanket wrap
cd around him. He was sent from
ent to. tent and a half dozen surgeons
examined him nnd found him U. K.,
physically fit for military purposes,
ilthough his feet are said to have been
n poor condition, a defect that can
lie remedied. He did appear a little
ild for a draftee whose maximum age
ihould be not more thnn thirty one
Vecepted For Service
Finally, he emerged clud in the khaki
1 ni form of an American soldier. He
looked well, quite military, but lie ap
peared at all times eaer to talk to
m officer. He bad some trouble he
wanted to talk about, or some cpm
.ilaint to make, mauy of the draftees'
'oel that way. Hut the camp officers
have been extremely busy men diiriiip,
:he past week, for they have passed
ipon nenrly a thousand draftees. In
Hvidiial cases could not well be nt
ended to. yet Anally he got the ear
if an officer and informed him h sat.
thirty 'eight' years old. Tho Porto
tican had learned that uo draftee
diould be over thirty oue years of
"What are you talking about?
Von 're in the draft. ' '
"Hut," expostulated the new sol
lier, "I'm thirty eijilit years old."
It was explained to him tbnt lie had
'iceii pussed through nnd his papeis
ipparently found correct.

"I'm not the man in those papers."

He was asked to explain and did
and this is the story:
While he was in the hospital in
'(ukalau last year, his feet in ba..
anpe, as he said, thp registration was
leld. While he did not know this a'
he time, hp learned just recently that
I Portuguese had gone to the registra
ion booth nnd filled out a blank in
lie I'orto Ricun 's name. The Porto
;uese by this method, slipped out of
he grip of the selective draft machine,
paving the Porto liicnn to be caught
II the vortex and carried along until
e was actually wearing the uniform
if a soldier of the army.
In time thp I'orto Rican received
-egist ration cards, and found that h.
"s "in the draft " and that he was
1 Class I A innn. He took it for grunt
d that the government knew -best, Im'
'e pondered over the puz..le never ex
iltlv satisfying himself just how he
diould be a "draft man."
He took the physical tests an. I was
dually im! 111 Class I, for lie received

Wheu the local bourd at Hi In sent
nt the call for the Class 1A men (
issemblp at Ililo to be transported
o Honolulu, the I'orto Rican was
inioiig the crowd of nearly two linn
lied. 11,. came over to Honolulu, was
eat to Fort Armstrong, received hi
danket. mosquito net and mattress und
vas assigned to a siund tuut. He
ite his three "squares" a day, and
went through every test and became
soldier and it was not until then
''at ollicial notice was tnken of his
plight, for the officials previously had
no intimation that the Porto Iji -aii
was being "railroaded" iifto the army
and that another was by this means

voice from the other end excitedly
"The senate is passing the Hawaii
an Annexation resolution; tell Mr.
Thurston to come up right away"'
It was a message which we had been
expecting and hoping for daily since
the house of represpa 1 11 1 i v Ps linssed thp
inint resolution on .Into. I., an.i ;r,...i
that, partly , as a flpamsli War measure, i
the annexation of the Hawaiian Islands
to the United States, was about to be
come a reality.
Mr. Thurston was not then in the
office, but Henry Wnterhouse was in
the hotel and I infonni..l him of the
news. He disappeared through the
open doors, commandeered a cab and
was instantly on his way to the capitol.
After considerable telephoning 1 got
in touch with Mr. Thin stun and then

to witness the final act in the long

When I reached the capitol and got 1
as far as the senate wine, it WHs onlv 1

Both houses of congress had passed the i
resolution, the senate roll cull beiug I
forty two for and twenty-one oppose 1. 1
nnd nothing remained but to send it to
President M. Kinley for his signature. '
for it was generally understood that he
would approve the measure. ,
Our oflice for the remainder of the 1
day was besieged with island people 1
and friends of Hawaii nnd members of :
congress who had steadfastly favored
the passage of the resolution. For a
few hours, i. A. Thurston, the annex

and letters to nie, and these I trans

Long letters detailing the results of j
the congressional action, and outlining 1
the possible future action of the ad '

of Possibilities Long
Eligibles Are Few
(ioveriior Charles J. MiCarthy is
poiiilerino deeply these days over the
quest inn nf w hat live men shall be
selected for appointment upon the Ter

spite the fai t that he has a hundred or

The on! Territorial Marketing Divis

bureau i f agriculture ami forestry. The
bureau did not especially desire the
market tn be conducted as a part of
its work but the law put it there.
Tin members of the board of agri
culture had plenty of wolk mapped
out for them in their own jurisdiction
without going outside, to add more.
There were important problems there
to engage all tlieir attention, and to
divide it meant to have the agriculture

The market division comes more or
less directly under thp Governor. The
law provides that 110 man upon this

The Covernor realizes that any man
who is appointed to serve on this
board must give ull his time; he must

JnfifH'psH r'ir-c I nr the Jnianese anil
for tl," Japanese only, is the edict of
tie .'iipatiesc government winch per
n its ii,ms In Hiiwaij under that e
pbe t i oiidii inn. If one wishes to. SO
cire the .la, an ginnn staple for the
c-c of hi- (,, her cook, house boy or
y J' i'l boy the procedure must be I I
-ad one of these Japanese servants
' i m ike the purchase, fur .Japanese rice,
i not for hnnlcs, and must not be de
livered to Mum. Purthermore the
l.ipiiuesii v, u, purchases rice must use
it for fund purposes only, it is not to
,. ma no : act m e I into sake. The dealer
ho sells Japanese rice to the haole or
l i a Japanese who vvould use it for
!i,r tl,.,;, fund, fjices the loss of hi
.iii) an ,s shut of rice but the govprn
npn is willing to accentuate that short
igc nt Inline siillicicnt to enable thi
Japanese population' here to secure a
Kiilerale supply for its needs. At the
nine time it is not the purpose of the
.npiiaese government to uudcrtake to
mpply with rice the population of tho
Orders are Issued
The Japanese consulate, through
v'ive -Consul and Secretary T. Imai, has
issmd to every importer of ahd dearer
in Japanese rice in the Islands orders
nat Japan rice cannot be. sold to other
.nan JepaTP-c, and the rice must be
used for food purposes only. Any im
.orter or dealir violating the terms of
(his order will run thp risk of having
iiis rice supply from Japan shut off.
t Is believ'ed that the restriction will
e yvitlidrawn when the new crop comes
ii in October, reports from Japan iri
tcating thflt the -new crop will be large
Od flait thore will be considerable for
.iipurt after about throe or four months.
' "This order to importers and dealers
taw been made absolutely necessary by
"tinditions in Japan," said Mr, Imai yes
efday, to whom has been entrusted
'Ire eirMr 'trrWtte of ha-riaiing th, yie
;it nation here, '.'The supply. of rice at
iiime has been . very short since Inst
inler aud very high prices have ob
ninpil. Japan has had no rice this
ear for export and six months ago the
fovurument shut off shipments to for
i'gn countries. On representations
tiade by the consulate here, calling at
tention, to the large number of Jap-
nese in .Uawaii to whom rice was an
ibsolute necessity, the government final
y conseMed to fwmit the shipment of
i limited quantity pf rice to Honolulu
iinler the positive arrangement .that it
s sold to Japanese only and used for
' u'd purposes only.
Telief is Near
"This instruction has been given by
ue to all importers and dealers, and I
ave reason to believe that they are
implying with it. If they do not
veil, further action will be taken. There
s no disposition ou the part of the
apanese government to deny rice to
ither nationalitiea, but.it is felt that
ther peoples have different, things
.hieli they can' us,e in place of rico,
lnle to the Japanese rice is absoliite
f a necessity; nnd the- supply is now
short thut it is all Japan can do to
opply her own people with enough to
, t nlong on. Cnless some di snifter he
el) th growing crop, Japan will liavo
sui plus of rice after October when the.
-in, tion will be removed."
Mr. Imai explained that the selling
me of .In pun rico in Honolulu now
niiild be $11 a. bag, while a few years
oi it wus aror.nt M to iM.Vl.
