The question of whether Paddy Ry

loon across Alakea street from the
present location Is being threshed out
by the board of liquor license com
missioners at Jts meeting this after
noon, which began at 3:15 o'clock.
Liquor License Inspector Fennell has
been engaged during the last few
days in checking tip the list of signa
tures attached to Ryan's petition, to
determine whether a sufficient num.
ber of the signers are property-owners,
under the lnterprettaion of the
law as given, recently by the attorney
.Many of the. signers are lessees of
property in the district The attorney
general has held that lessees are not
qualified, as property-holders unless
their leases are for a period of at
least a year. The result of Fennell's
investigation is to be disclosed at to
day's meeting of the board.
Recommendations to the governor
o a man for appointment to the va

was received from the executive this
morning, and it is thought he has
been too busily engaged In other af

not yet decided as to the exact hour
of the parade itself. Last year the
parade was set for 2 o'clock .in the

have been held in the moraine. With i

It is likely that the present Terri
torial statutes may be interpreted to
give the board of harbor commission
ers power to regulate dockage charg
es at privately owned wharves in the
Islands. This is the opinion given off
hand this morning by Attorney Gen
eral Alex. Lindsay, on receipt of the
communication from Chairman Mar
ston Campbell, of the commission,
asking for an examination of. the
statute and a formal opinion on which
the board may act.
The verbal opinion came only at
"first blush," before he had time to
give the subject full consideration. .
"Although I have just received the
iequest and have not given it all the
thought a formal opinion will require,

That's the fix of B. von Damm, chair

Some time ago the tennis cracks of
Monoa valley, where tennis cracks are
thick, went down to Ewa plantation
and hooked up with the sugar men.
The sugar men trimmed the townspeo

to be a real thirst .the Monoa tennis
experts have been practicing long and
hard. They challenged the Ewa boys

accepted. They set the date for the

Rulings In States.

instances In the States that In such
cases as those of big grain elevators,
used by large corporations for their
own business but made of general
use by the citizens of the surround

way; that is, compelled to make only
nominal and fair charges for hauling
the products of the public. This waa
on the theory that although privately
owned and intended for private us

usage as to be, in a large sense, a
public utility. ,
