The writer, Interested in matttr3 coming before .the liquor licensi board, was in attendance at the meet ing yesterday but was disappointed to discover that tbe usual "star cham ber" tactics were employed. It looks to the man up a tree as though these boards and commissions adopt a "pubHc-be-damned" theory and follow it out to its ultimate con elusions. It certainly is about time that some stand was taken by the press, the public and the pulpit or any civic organizations in order that the people who are compelled to pay salaries to any of these public ser vants who draw salary and are re sponsible for the honor that is accrued by appointment to the 'no salary' com missions, should have a line on what is done by these same servants. It is hard to figure just What may come before the liquor license com mission of a nature unfit for the pub lic to know. Why is the press not al lowed to be present at these meetings and give to the public the news of such meetings? The "Star Chamber" method is a relic of barbarism and it is about time it was tabu in a civilized com munity. OPEN FORUM. 4 ;e FISH AND FOWL - i'- . - :an of this paper that Judge.

The Japanese was fined, the white chauffeur re ceived a suspended sentence, which' is practi cally no more serious than a discharge. Both were arrested for driving on the wrong side of ICalakaua avenue. On behalf of the white chauffeur Jt is 'stated by the district magistrate and' the prosecuting attorney that he pleaded ignorance of the new traffic rule, not having driven his car for some weeks, and furthermore thaf he wasHtrying to avoid a particularly rough piece of road. In court, the arresting police officer stated, according' to the court, that he recognized the road was very poor at this point and that he "didn't blame the chauffeur for cross ing over.'

Cohen, on ascending the stage, was un able to begin his speech for fully two minutes on account of the cheering with which he was greeted.
