Dealing with the aiz reserve ques
tions at law, submitted to the supreme

most comprehensive brief accentuate
the "unenviable" effort of the woold
bo Democratic candidate to make void
the rules of the territorial food com
mission. In this respect the very first
paragraph of the brief says:

Police Power Sufficient
In answering this question counsel
for the Territory assert that the police
power of the Territory is elastic and
adaptable to the needs of the people 'as
they arise from time to time, also that
this power ean he exercised much morel
drastically during war than in peace,
ami will amply suport the legislation
and regulation attacked by the defend-!
The brief calls attention again to the
fact that there are ao cases dealing
with the validity of food legislation,
but that there are many authorities
dealing with other questions involved.
The brief then proceeds to take up
each of the six questions at law based I

territorial and federal statutes aa to
rights of regulation by the larger ami
leiwer Kwer, citing many decisions in
support of the presumption of right in
the passage of a law backed by police
power, by a legislative assembly.
In this respect the Territory in its
brief explains that it will have to go
outside of the United Ktates to find
authority dealing with the vslidity of
food legislation, anil cites one author
ity from Australia, as follows:
"One power but partially exercised
as vet and which has not been the
subject of adjudication is the regula
tion of food supply and prices. A case
lias, however, arisen in Australia, un
der a constitution similar to ours,
which the court decided largely on a
citation of American authorities.
In that rase it appeared that a
conviction was hal for violation of a
regulation fixing the maximum price of
bread. It was contended that the war
power extended only to matters direct
ly contributory to the prosecution of
I lie wsy and did not authorise social
or industrial legislation. The Court
" 'As I read the constitution, the
Commonwealth when charged with the
duty of defending Commonwealth and
states is armed with a pow
er which is commensurate with the
peril it is desigued to encounter, or as
that peril may appear to the Parlia
ment itself; and if ueed be, it ia a
power to command, control, organise
and regulate, for the purpose of guard
ing against that peril, the whole re

Starting of 'Action To Suspend
,'Gentlemen' Agreement" De
pends Upon Planters' Attitude
Starting rif an active movement here
t secure the lightening of the restric
tions regarding the entry of Japanese
to America, aa now underway on the
Pacific Coast, appears to depend upon
the decision of whether or not the
Hawaiian Sugar Planters' Association.
Kill glv4 Us fall support to the pro
ject. .'. "
Local Japanese leaden, and Japanese
newspapers hav been urging that ac
tion be started in Hawaii to get a sus
pension of the "Oentlemen's Agree
ment", between Jspsn and America
during the war, so laborers could be
brought here to work on the sugar plan
tationa, and particularly so approxi
mately 10,000 Japanese formerly resi
dent, in the Islands, but now in Jap
an, .could retnrw. These are Japanese
who failed to retwra to Hawaii within
the time In which it was necessary for
them to do ao in order to secure reen
try. Kred Makiae tn the Hawaii Hoc hi as
serted that nearly all or these Japanese
would -be willing to return to Hawaii if
they were permitted to do so, and urged
that local action to have the govern
ment grant thla privilege be under
taken. Wnce this suggestion was made by
Makiao there has been no evidence of
approval from the sugar planters' asso
etaUon, for the benefit of which the
Japanese baekers say the movement
si-aa proposed. Faxon Rishop of C.
Brewer A Company has been quoted as
saying that if transportation for these
Japanese could be scored, transporta
tion eould be gotten also for (he bring
ing in of many more Filipino laborers
than now.- , ,
Makiao Wants) To Know
' Meanwhile, Makino says he has been
waiting for more definite word as to
the views of the planters' association,
before "sailing meetings of Japanese
and having resolutions passed eudors
ing the projeet. In fact he said yes
terday that before going further with
the proposal at the present time he
wanted to know what was to be the
attitude of the planters.
E. D. Tenney, president of the sugar
planters' association, refused to dis
cuss the question yesterday as a repre
sentatlve of the planters, but made no
effort" to conceal some opposition to the
plan as an individual.
"How do we know that we would
not be touching upon a delicate inter
notional problem f" he demanded.
President Tenney said that irrespec
tive of whether a proposal was made by
Makino or anyone else he doubted the
wisdom of urging Washington officials
to permit the entry of Japanese or
Chinese. But not because he personal
ly objected,-io.ijia lessening of immi
pratinn"restrie.tions, but because he be
lieved the Washington officials are bet
tered informed of all the problems in
volved in such a proposal, and there
fore better qualified to reach a con
clusion as to how the labor needs
are to be met.
Ia National Problem
Instead, he advises that Washington
be kept informed of our labor wants
and that the solution thereof be left to
the proper officials. President Tenney
ssys that labor shortage is not merely
a local problem, but one that is nation
wide, and sure to become more so with
the formation of an army of 5,000,000.
"When a Way i found of supplying
labor where neqiled it the United
States, Hawaii will be included in the
plan," he thinks. He refers to the
fart that some effort to lessen the la
bor shortage has been made already by
the government in the brining in of a
few thousand Porto Kiians to the east
ern part of the country, and in the
lifting of restrictions on the entry of
Mexican laborers to the border states.
"This ia but a start to what may
be needed. With the forming of the
bigger army there will be needed thir
ty thine and a half million pairs of
hands to supply it, as it is estimated
that it takes six and a half pairs of
hands to support every soldier in the
field, ' ' he says.
Ill conclusion Mr. Tennoy reiterates
that Hawaii can best serve by not be
coming mixed up in what may be a
delicate international sitnation, and
that if labor is not found for the I si
snd industries, it will have to he ac
cepted as one of the accessary burdens
nf the war. And he intimates that he
does not think Washington meanwhile
is going to get greatly exrited over
whether or not there is a loss of a few
millions dollars' worth of sugar per
year here or not.
"It doesn't seem likely that the gov
ernment will do so when our total ss
sensed valuation in the Islands is only,
say. about 2OO.0O0,nO0, and the cost of
'he war in three or four days amounts
to that much."
When Fred Makino was informed
brieflv of President Tenney 's views on
the subiect of asking for a lessening of
the restrictions of the "Oentlemen's
Agrenient," he s"id it was hard tn an
swer an to what further steps would be
taken by the Japanese community.
"The subject needs consideration if
we are not to have the cooperation of
the sugar planters. We do not want
the laborers. It was for the planters
the suggestion was made. It's hard to.
say what we will do if the planters are
going to put their hands in their pock
et snd do nothing. " Makino said.
However, he added, that he was go
ing to take up the subject with Gov
ernor McO'arthy and get his views, and
that in the meanwhile he was gather
ing more data on the lumbers of Jap
anese who wmlM be qualified to return
here under the plan he suggests. Then
he sa id :
"I inn - v that I know the Japanese
consul and the Japanese government
are in favor of my proposal."

RURAL MOTOR EXPRESS IS
RAPIDLY BECOMING POPULAR
Coming Very Fast In Atlantic States and Rapidly Spreading West
ward Enables Farmer To
small cost Return Load Bureaus Are Helping the Movement
(By ERNEST O. WALKER)
(Mail Special To The Advertiser)
WASHINGTON, July Id The nival
motor express is coming very fast in
Atlantic seaboard states. It haa pene
trated as far west as Jndiansevll. le
troit and Flint, Michigan, Cleveland",
Ohio, and Kansas City. A development!
of the war apparently, this express has
bounded into such popularity that farm-'
era from all over the land are now in
quiring about it at the council of na
tional defense. Connecticut, New York
and New Jersey have been largely me-1
nopoliaing this fine form of getting ail
kinds of prodnee to market, but lately
many Californiana have been inquiring
as to what such service would do for
ts wonderful farming communities lo
cated on splendid highways.
la the wake of the rural motor ex-,
press has come the return load bureau.
Boards of trade and chambers of com
merce have selced opon the organisa
tion and maintenance of these return
load bureaus as rare oportunlties for
useful public service. Today there arc
quite forty of thee return load bureaus,
which, as the name may suggest,' co
operate with the rural express In
getting return loads (from town into
the country). Fourteen of these bur
eaus are in Connecticut; ten in New
Jersey and six In New York state but,;
from all indications, within a year there
will more likely be four thousand of
these bureaus throughout the country,
for they have proven of grest utility.
Had Small Beginning
The rural motor express is accredited
originally to a farmer near Olney,
Maryland, eighteen miles out of Wash
ington along as fine a mncadnm road,
probably, as there is in all the country
He thought of the proposition aa feas
ible for getting his milk to the Wash
incrton market. He purchased one light
truck and within a fortnight was doing
so well, rolling quickly into town and
out again, that hie neighbors all were
after him to hur for them. They left
cans of milk and cream by the road
side for collection. Quickly the busi
ness branched out almost automatically.
Livestock shipments were accepted.
Calve's. for example, were tied by the
roadside tili the express passed. Tags
attached gave the owners name and
instrnctions where to deliver and to
whom. The return load idea also de
veloped quickly on the CMney route,
backed by the Washington Chamber of
Commerce, and now the Olney farmer
no only owns sad operates four trucks
hut he is decidedly a magnate among
the Maryland farmers, who find an in
di,penable institution ia growing op
in their midst. They ean not only sell
small and broken lots of their own pro
duce but they can send to town for a
plow point or any one of a hundred
things that are needed On the farm.
Use of Chain Letters
National War Savings Committee
In Letter To John Effinger
Frowns Upon That Method of
Advancing Sale of Thrift
In a letter received recently by John
Kflinger from Walter H. Nash of the
National War Savings Committee, of
! Chambers Htreet. New York City,
it is stated that the treasury depart
ment disapproves of the use of chain
letters for he sale of thrift stamps;
also that a certain chain letter referred
to by Mr. Kflinger iu a communication
to the committee, did not originate
with the committee. Continuing, Mr.
Nash says in part :
"Nothing has bivn none to stop this
chain letter except in the way if ad
vising Mopli making such inquiries as
vou hae dune, that the chain letter
has not the approval of the govern
incut. I'or the reason thut there is
nothing illegal about it, and if patriot
ic cili.ciis see lit to send these letters
to their friends, this committee has
taken the attitude that it was a per
sonnl affair entirely."
This positive fnimnunif ation from
the National War Savings Committee
followed the receipt here by Mr. Ef
finger of one of these clinjn letters in
which he was asked to write five other
chain letters to friends with a thrift
stamp in each one ami ask the recip
ients to each write still more letters
with a thrift stamp in each as a Oeu
ileus for a War Savings Stamp.
Mr. K Dinger wrote the chain letters
and then decided that it would be a
good idea to find out if they were ofli
rial, or approved by the government,
and applied at hcudipiartera with the
result as shown.

Dividend payments of at least one
percent a month commencing with Oct

American Factors, Limited. This will
be told in a further prospectus that
is soon to be issued.
There have been numbers of requests
for information on the probable divi

rates will pay and the directors and
trustees believe the investing public
should be given all possible information
on the subject and will, therefore, make
the announcement in the prospectus of
