HONOLULU STAR-BULLETIN, THURSDAY, JULY .30, 1914. ! in Iff rati UMV.' RILEY H. ALLEN tiiui:si)ay A GRAND JURY REPORT THAT DEMANDS ACTION The territorial grand jury has 1ft in some much-needed light on the saloon business in Honolulu. ' The light is also turned on (he relations of ;the Honolulu Urewing & Malting Company to retail businesses, and it fall with esecial strength upon the relations of Charles IS.

Cornyn borrowed the money, giving the Honolulu Brewery his note for $7,000. with a mort gage on the saloon as security. "This arrangement apparently proved satisfactory to all concerned. Mr. Bartlett and Mr. Waterman receiving their pro rata of the profits, being two thirds of 6am e, and Mr. Cornyn receiving one third. "Mr. Cornyn apparently retained $150 per month for living expenses, the balance of his share of the profits being paid to the brewery on account of his note. "Upon the" payment of this note Mr. Cornyn held his one-third interest clear. "There can be no doubt but that the agreement of copartnership was fully understood by the three interested parties, as the terms of same were con scientiously lived up to. Did Lynch know what sort of a secret deal with Hartlett he was a nartv to?

Editor Honolulu Star-Bulletin: So "we ladies of Honolulu have con vinced our local dealers that it does Mr. Editor, I should make haste to go not pay them to advertise on bill- away from there to where T could boards, for we absolutely refuse to breathe the fresh air of 1914. &ad buy anything so advertised or uation- here I could look around me and sre this paper demanded a grand jury investiga-. Hon have own "proven; tne questions asKeu in the columns of .this paper day after day have leen answered. , .In the report made public last night by a sub committee of the grand jury, named -to -carry, on the investigation," this trickery, deceit, double-dealing are plainly shown. The various transactions involving the Pa cific saloon i were made possible because Hart lett, Sullivan, Lynch and Waterman were will ing to go into secret deals and silent partner ships, in defiance of the plain spirit of the li cence commission ruling made as long ago as 1910. If, as some of them say, they acted in ignorance, that very ignorance of "the reg ulation and of the nature of business transac tions would seem in all common-sense to un fit them for holding saloon' licenses. Did P. P. Corynn ( Dick Sullivan ) knowing ly make false affidavits as to the ownership of the Pacific saloon?- , . - The grand jury report says: . "When application was made to the liquor com- ' mUsioneis for a saloon license, Mr. Philip F. Cornyn was the applicant for the Pacific Saloon. The license -' was granted to Mr. Cornyn, and so far as the com-- misElcners or the public knew, Mr. Cornyn was the . only interested party In the saloon. "From July 1, 1810, until July 1, 1911, we are led to believe that Mr. Cornyn was only an employe, working on a salary. s "On July 1, 1912, there was a copartnership agree ! ment entered Into, whereby C. G. Bartlett, Emit Waterman and Philip F. Cornyn became equal own- "The agreement .between Mr. Bartlett as a two. thirds owner and Mr. Lynch, owning one-third, was apparently fully tnCcrstood by both parties. Mr. Lynch's affidavit to the contrary notwithstanding, as tne conditions of same were always adhered to, to the effect that two thirds of the profits were paid to Mr. Bartlett. and in addition thereto Mr. Lynch paid a certain a:::ount from his one-third profit to apply to his indebtedness to the brewery. The report puts it up to the license commis sion to take action. On this point: "The liquor commissioners were acquainted with practically all of the transactions mentioned in this report, in the face of which they saw no reason why the .various licenses should not be renewed or trans : f erred to other owners. "The license commissioners are in absolute control . of the situation. They can make a license valuable or otherwise by insisting that the holders of the license comply with, not only the law, but with all regulations adopted by the commission. "The cancelling of one or two licenses for evading regulations would soon teach a holder of a license , that there was some value to the license if he con ducts his business properly; on the contrary, if he does not, the license wouldn't be worth the paper It is written on. "There should be no need of a grand jury investi gation into the liquor business; the liquor, commis ' sionera are the' judges, and they should stop any questionable t transactions by . refusing to renew licenses where such evidence is proven to their tat- lsfaction." " - 'i '. '-- The license commission has won the confi dence of the public for its energy and impar tiality in the past. It has the power, not only to renew licenses, but to revoke licenses. .We shall await with; peculiar interest some early fiction by the commission as a result of this grand jury report: .
