Immediately after the meeting the Rood Defended

in determining upon tho officers of discussed at length, his limitations on
the proposed new company ami the I Liberty Honds meeting with strong

shall be closed up so that it will not noon whon an adjournment was taken
requir,. tho- sale of all of the trust

present concern is brought about. The
plan of Mr. Milvcrton was accepted
in purt. His suggestion Hint not more
Ihan two thirds of payments for trust
certificates shall be in Liberty Honds
was changed to eighty percent ami his
suggestion for a speedy dissolution and
distribution of proceeds of sale wns
considered good and adopted.
Objects to Bonds
It nppeared to be the purpose of Mr.
Milvcrton, representing Kodiek, Kle
balm an I Hchult.o to huo it so ar
ranged that payments in Liberty Honds'
might be suflicient to pay the custo
dinn the share of the proceeds of the

titled to but that there be no more
bonds taken and that the minority
stockholders receive all cash instead 1
ol l.HM'rty Jloii'ls, in part, a contin
genev which might nrise.
The resolution as presented provided
for a sale of all of the trust certificates
of the American Factors, Limited, be
fore the dissolution of II. Iliickfebl &
Company he started. The custodian had
previously said that if the entire stock
of the new corporation was not sold
he would purchse the unsold part nnd
this made possible Ho' carrying out of
Mr. Milvcrton 'a suggestion.
The amendment that was adopted
was as follows:
"That the board of directors of H.
Hackfcld k Company, Limited, will
then proceed to sell the said trust cer
tificates at a juice of one hundred Hud
fifty dollars ( if I "jli.tMi ) for each share

(Mining all of its stockholders in pro
portion to the number of shares held
bv them respectively, and according to
their several classes and proport tonale
rights, as a final d i1 libut ion of its
assets; provided, that such dissolution
proceedings may Is the discretion of
the directoqs be instituted before the
sale of all of said trust certificates in
ant icipnt ion of the same being sold
pnor to the taking effect of the tit'.
dec of i isso'ut ion ; uml provided fur
thcr that the directors may at any
time in their di-cretion distribute in

cates not to exceed in tho aggregate
eighty percent (Ml'! ) of the whole
amount receivable for said trust cei
tificates, or sale thereof, in Cuited

and the balance in cash."
With this amendment the lesohition
passed by a vole of :;!I,mmi shares in
its favor. Mr. Milvcrton voted the

There were several one time residents

from onormous fl di and the catches of
'ornicr years to centipedes. Nobody
knows how the subject came up, but
Tom 'ook hnd something to do with it,
fdr it was he who mentioned the fact
'hat he once saw a centipede that was
at least twelve in lies long and as
hick as a broom handle, its body color
ed blue and gold auyl its head carrying
horns ns large as a cow almost. Tom
"ockoned that rrentuiv had been feed

V hole had to be cut in the roof of the
louse in order to get a; a beehive that
tad been established there some years
icfore. The honey began to drip
hrougli the ceiling and it wn-. thought
idvisnble to remove the sweet stuff and
also tho bees.
(ilbert, then a small boy. rt-.is keen
ifter honey and he, of course, managed
0 creep into the attic. He there found
1 t remeudoiis amount of honey, sixty

ng the best way t get the honey

omething crawling along tho joists.

PAPER SHORTAGE IN
ONE ALIEN ENEMY
Sergeant Klein Is First To Be
Naturalized Under New Law;
Is Anxious To Fight Huns
t . ii,. (.
ca took nn alien enemy yes
who has Veil ''-rVt n i 'Vol-
months to hae this hatmv fate bfall
him. Capture of ths willing prisoner
wns not mn.lc on the West Front In
the successful French-American offen
sive, but here In Honolulu, after he had
persistently importuned government
offldnls until he could no longer be de
nio.l his wish.
8er(t (inslnv Klein, is the happy
""prisoner." Yesterdny ho waa an
nlicn enemy, hut today Sergeant Klein
is nn American citizen for he had tho
distinction of heiutf the ,fat .alien
enemy naturalized in the Hawaiian Isl
and since war with Germany began.
H.V Idrth Hergeant Klein is a Hohe
minn, nml was a subject of Astria
Hungary, and a thorough "Kaiser and
I'ntil very recently any hopes that
Sergeant Klein formerly had of becom
ing nn American citir.cn, seemed very
distant of realization. Then congress
piiHsc.l amendments to the naturahra-
'ion nw, wlm-li before barred the nat
uralization of nu alien enemy while the
L'ni'ed States was at war with Oer
:nnny nnd Austria Hungnry.
Sergeant Klein was among the first
to apply for this privilege after thia
news reached Honolulu. He has been a
most persistent caller at the federal
offices ever since, but did not have his
wishes grnnted immediately because of
the delay in the arrival here of blanks
from Washington. These blanks have
not reached here yet, but the federal
officers decided to give the Bohemian a
chance to become a citizen, and make
out the necessary forms without wait
ing for the printed ones.
Anxious To Fight
"Are you willing to fight against
Austria iliingnryt the sergeant waa
asked yesterday during the course of
his examination by Judge Horace' Vao
ghan. His reply was that he was not
onlv willing but anxious to do ao, and
had been so for many long years.
After this reply the oath was ad
ministered, and then the sergeant re
ceived the congratulations of all those
in the court mom. The first two to
congratulate him were two army offi
cers, who hnd appeared as hia wit
nesses. As proof that he wnnts to fight the
(iermans and the Austriaus, Sergeant
Klein is to be transferred from the
Qiiarterinnsters Corps, with which he
has been attached, to the infantry to
day, for which he had made application
so as tu stand a better opportunity of
getting "over thero."
S'-'gonnt Klein was recommended for
a commission ut the beginning of the
war but was barred from the promo
tion because of his alien euemy citizen
ship. With this bar removed he will
likeiy very soon be given hia delayed
promotion. . . ,
Dcaorted! Hun Army
Sergeant Klein oame to America
about five years ago, after he hail suc
ceeded in deserting from the Austrian
Hiintriirian army nnd escaping from that
country. Hut it was not army life
from which ho had deserted, as he
showed by joining the American army
two weeks after lie had landed in
"They treat a man like a dog
i hat count tv. It's different here,"
commented yesterday after he had
come nn American citizen.
Petitions for the naturalization
other alien enemies now in the army
will not bo tiled by the federal officers
until after the regular forms reach here
from Washington, it was said yester
lav. Arrival of these forms will be
announced as soon as they reach here.
"There were exceptional reasons for
accepting the petition of Sergeant
Klein," it was explained by the dis
trict uttorney yesterday.
When the mutter of the county
lai l;o't is out of the way nml
the l.onid of supervisors settles down
I" biiMin-HS Hgaiu, it is the intention
of Supervisor Mott Smith to get the
boa id interested in the enlargement

Mr. Mutt Smith 's activity along these
1 1 lies.
The Supervisor from the rock
ribbed coast of Kahala, according to
a statement which Jie made yesterday,
is in favor of the installation of a
dual water system. One system would
le siyiplied with artesian water from
'lie mountain springs which would be
used exclusively for drinking and do
mestie purposes and the other sv s

FAILS TO EXCITE
Little Interest Shown In Republi
can Convention Many Dele
gates Won't Attend
An effort will be made this morning
to arrange a caucus of Republican dele
gates to Monthly's ennention for
sometime this afternoon. All of tho
Hawaii delegates who will be able to
Attend at all will nrrive this morning,
and a part of the Maui delegation wil!
be with them. The remainder of Msni
and the Kauni bunch will nrrive to
morrow. What is almost the eve nf ,
the convention funis the proposed plut
orm contsined in a msss uf sugges
tions. The platform does not exist, in
other words, snd it will be up to the
delegates to get together this after
noon and tomorrow and whip it Into ,
some sort of shape, if the oriinal
idea of expediting business on Monday
is carried out.
There is unusual apathy in regard to
the convention, and although an effort
will he made today and tomorrow to
awaken a little enthusiasm, there is a
chilliness about the whole propodtion
which even the hot weather has seem
ed unable to dissipate not even hot
air appears to help. Making a pint
form is a dry business, anyway, ai.'l
as there has been no promise of any- .'
thing else nearer fireworks for the
coming convention, there has rome
about ii sort of "don't care much
cither way" feeling on all of the isl
ands, with the possible exception of
Maui, where some of the party leaders
have mnnnoed to work up a little steam. .
Delegates Who Are Coming
Nothing is yet known nbout the Hiln
delegation, which will arrive this morn
ing, no list having bqen sent down,
Vp to last night headquarters had re
ceived notices that the) following (M
