The question of whether Paddy Ry
an will .be permitted to move h'is sa
loon across ; Alakea street from the
present location is heing threshed out
by the board of 'liquor license com
missioners at Us 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 up 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 interprettaion of the
law as given recently by the attorney
general. " y
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
of a man for appointment to the va
cant place on the liquor license com
mission has been made but no word
was received from the executive this
morning, and it is thought he has
been too busily engaged in other af
fairs the last few days to give this
particular matter consideration.

Outline of His General
9 Plans
Five days will be devoted to the
Floral Parade program of 1913.
Director-general Charles F. Chil
lingworth today made the first an
nouncement of hta genera plans for
the big midwinter carnival and Wash,
lngton's birthday celebration next
February, beginning now to name
the heads of his departments and
committees, he will work out the de
tails in the next few weeks .and from
then on there will be a busy cam
paign, according to his plans as stat
ed today. '
Five afternoons and evenings are to
be devoted to the Floral Parade exercises,-
as the plans go now. He has
not yet decided as to the exact hour
of the parade itself. Last year the
narade was set for 2 o'clock in the
afternoon, but there were many
tests that, as in former years, it should I
have been held in the morning. With J
the possible exception of the Floral j
Parade itself, all the other features
of the carnival week will be in the aft
ernoon and evening.
"I feel that the businessmen of" the
city would not want to practically
close up business for five days," said
Director Chillingworth this morning.
"However, afternoons and evenings
can be largely given over to the pa-

tourists know that the carnivul will
extend over a number of days, so that
they will come."
A. M. Brown, marshal of a nu'uixr
of parades, has been named marshal
for next year and has consented to
serve. Miss Ward today consented to
serve as head of the princess and pa u
rider section, Miss Rose Davison, who
nas made a great success of this di
vision for . a number of years, being
unable to take the position for next
year. Homer Smith, who got up a suc
cessful race meet for the Fourth of
July, will be head of the racing divi
sion, and it is now the intention to
hold a meet at Kapiolani Park.
Duke Kahanamoku Jr., champion
swimmer, is going to help get up a
big water carnival at Waikiki. .
C. C. von Hamm has been asked to
serve as chairman of the committee
on decorated autos, and Director Chil
lingworth is very anxious that he
snould accept, as he would certainly
Dro-!make a DiS success of the section..
Tne Promotion Committee will be
asked to consider a suggestion that
il PIat a lot of flowers that will be
n full bloom during carnival week
and thus cooperate with intending ex
hibitors of decorated cars by furnish
ing them with flowers. Director Chil
lingworth hopes to have many cars
decorated with natural flowers for this
parade, and by starting now, he thinks
the committee could raise a large
number in time for February, 1913.

Has Not Fully Considered the
Question but Thinks Com
mission Has Power
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 givejo-offhand
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
request and have not given it all the
thought a formal opinion will require,
I. am inclined to believe that the har
WTiat should a county chairman Go
when confronting alternatives of duty
and pleasure and pleasure and duty?
That's the fix of B. von Damm, chair
man of the Republican county commit
tee. It's this way:
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
ple to a fare-you-well.
Thirsting for revenge, which is said
to be a real thirst .the Monoa tennis
experts have been practicing long and
hard. They challenged the Ewa boys
U a return match, and the Ewa" boys
accepted. They 6et the date for the
evening of October 12. and planned to

power, -to regulate the dockage
charges of private wharves," he said.
Rulings In States.
"The courts have held in several
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 byv the citizens of the surround
ing country, may be controlled. in this
way; that is, compelled to make only
nominal and fair charges for hauling
the products of the public. This was
on the theory that although privafely
owned and intended for private us
age, they became of such general
usage as to be, in a large sense, a
public utility.
"Applying tne same theory, pri
vately owned wharves in Hawaii
which are used by the general public
can be controlled, and I believe that

This morning George Guild, who is
one of the Manoa tennis enthusiasts,
met Chairman von Damm at Republi
can headquarters. The chairman was
Jiut telling of the plans for the grand
opening of the Republican campaign,
and he gave the date as
"Nothing doing," said Mr. GuiSI,
"You've been named on the Manoa
tennis team to defend the honor of
Munoa, and you'll have to postpone
the opening of the campaign."
Chairman von Damm buried his
head in his hands and groaned. Tne
full gravity of the situation struck lfim
down. When last seen, he was trying
to decide whether to postpone the Re
publican campaign opening or to lose
his place In the ranks of those who gc
forth to defend the fair name of Ma
noa on the tennis court.

will open on October 12. at Aala park,
