Mura kami ;ii Hotel street, fcldward Town bend, interpreter, and head of the as sociation, nated this morning that he arid others feei thai this is a special honor accorded them by the chief ex t .;tif ;t Hawaii. "We are very lad to know that a ( oti.p;in -l 1 i.iw atian-born Japaius lias bevn In en advocated by the gov ernor, sai J j ownseuu today i nis proves clearly that th tinted State government lias a confidence in the loal i.atriotic spirits of the Japa nese in Hawaii. This is a special honor to us. And we highly appre ciate it,' concluded Townsend. That there are several Japanese American citizens in the territory is the opinion of Townsend Beside these, almost all the Japanese in the territory are willing to shoulder gims and help fight for the 1'nited States. Some of the prominent merchants, though not of Hawaiian birth, are nreparcd to go to the front and fight for (he American flag. Already some of the members of the association, it is said, have selected men.'whom they think will pass a suc cessful examination, both physically and mentally, when ordered to appear before the examining board of the United States army men stationed here. Asked whether they favored having white officers to command their com pany, if organized, almost all the mem bers of the association who were seen on this subject answered in the af firmative. "Racial issue does not enter our mind." said they. "What we want to see is the organization of a Japanese company In the National Guard. We stand ready at all times to answer rhe call of the President of the United States." U. S. Orders Ship Wireless Sealed While In Harbor 4- . . a - f vesels while in port, the Manoa wireless was sealed this morning' f while coming into Honolulu har- box. This order went into effect 4- about three weeks ago, the cus- toms and the navy forces work- ia& logemer in seeing that tne a ooeyea. rrequent ln- specuon is made of the wire- eals to see that they are not broken while the ships re- t blTV -.P6 8eals are not 4- taken off by the government men " until a ew moments before the f ships depart. As the sealing of the shins' f - wireless equipment has been keDt f - more or less secret until the present, it is impossible to gain -f f an authoritative statement of the reason for the order. But it is t presumed to be a precaution to prevent unauthorized messages being transmitted which might reacn the national enemy and lor uie same reasons that nm- t- nioit the landing of passengers 4 and crew from vessels touching here which are bound for a for- -f r eign port.

Kaimuki If the scouts of Honolulu live up to the presentation i given us at the Bijuu. they will surely 1 be doing their m ' for humanity. Aside from this foim of entertain ment, there is the still popular lantern slide lecture. In the Eastern states and in the Middle West this form of entertainment has a great hold on the people; but much to our chagrin, the people oi Honolulu did not show loy- alt to the cause last Thursday even tt-.w. r n- i.ew. when oi;r new commissioner de livered a iecthre in the Christian hurt h As the scoutmaster put it, flif .Till- frr;ii)ili u-ifli tKo It.f f iipa tt-.u the lakf a.i Tudirnce The bovs of Troop XVIII worked j hard to make this a success, but the' parents and others in the Makiki dis- trict did not turn out. The slide, I were attractive and the lecturer. Mr. I Burniiam. is said to have "done him self proud" Mr. Edward A. Cooper' operated the stereopticon machine, to the satisfaction of all. Mr. Hicks, the: scoutmaster, felt that the fathers and mohera of the boys should have put j in an appearance to encourage the : young fellows, if for no other reason. Speaking of Troop XVIII reminds us that it is a young troop, but watch it grow. There are now 2'j on the roll call, ind the boys expect that by the first of the year they will have a full quota 32. Somebody is passing it round that many of these boys have weak backs, and so it is difficult to get the plants in their garden watered This delightful task is necessarily ac complished by a hand-power sprinkler. It is to be regretted that Troop VIII will soon lose its scouthouse. Who will come forward and lend these worthy boys a hall? The Court of Honor will hold 4- a special meeting on Monday aft- 4- ernoon next, between 5 and 6 o'clock at local headquarters. All scouts interested in taking their tenderfoot tests, come at that time fully prepared. Last week's meeting of Troop VII was called to order at 7:45, only 18 members answering the roll call. After singing "Help Somebody Today," their regular opening ceremony, the scouzs listened to a talk by Rev. John Hop wood, one of their councilmeu. It was regretted that so many of the boys were away, either on other islands or late at work. Registration Day was referred to, the assistance of Sergeant Sanderson being spoken of especially. Then the sport program for the rally una taken ud. the different boys being allotted their respective places. Then the proposed indoor baseball game be tween V and VII was discussed, and somebody laughingly said that if the J O should win this game mey wuuiu then be ready to challenge any other troop in the city. Troop VII is learn ing four new songs, every word 3aid to be really truly scoui iauSus..

May 12, 1917. Mr. C. Mortensen, Honolulu, Hawaii. ut nMr Mr. Moitensenr The ulti mate goal of the through and through scout is the covetea suver eagie uu the tri-colored ribbon. There isnt a scout in all of the thousands through out the U. S. but what would be proud and happy to become we posgesuor of this high honor. The surest proor that a scout has lived up to the motto of the organization is the achievement of the requirements for the eagle hira. for to ret this badge a boy must be not only sound in mind but in hndv most not only have thought of tlmseU, but bare astnally helped others to develop themselves. We want you to xeei uai we arc of von. We want you further more to feel the responsibilites which rest on you as the possessor oi mis. the hiehest award which the Boy Scouts of America makes. You will be the ideal of younger and less ex perienced boys. You will be the in- rentive to tnem IO progreos in men vnrk. This is a privilege and at the same time a great responsibility, and i hhnnvA vou to so govern your ways as to give these younger brother scouts no cause to Tegret that you were the boy that they patterned after. Very sincerely yours, (Signed) M. B. SACKETT, Secretary, N. C. of H. TROOP VIII TO GIVE SHOW The meeting came to order at 7:30 m. under Scoutmaster Pennington. There were nine scouts and one offi cial present Tickets for our bene fit show were distributed among the scouts for sale. The entertainment will be given on August 17 eft 7:30 p. ra.

NEW SYSTEM OF CHECKING FOR CAMPING TRIPS At the scout master's meeting of August 7 a new system of checking the scout's belocgings was explained. Each scout is to be given a tag on which he will check off all that he takes with him. After he has done this he will tie in on his bundle. On his return he will look over his things before he packs and will check of all he has, then he will know whether or not he is bringing all his belongings home. Scout headquarters are frying to find out how many boys have tent3. I All the boys can help by reporting ' if they have tents or not. A motion was passed at t lie last scout masters' meeting to hold the drill competition in town and not at the rally, so that the troops may be more fully represented. If a troop wishes to enter the drill competition it must be represented by two patrols. One of the chief objects of the com ing rally will be to make the daily routine and conduct of camp life as interesting as a baseball or a football game. We want the boys to respond to assembly call as promptly as they would run to first bast after knock ing out a fly ball, and to be just as alert to pick up a piece of paper or a banana peel as they would a grounder. ANNOUNCEMENT "Knights of the Square Table" A Great Film by Scout Master James A. Wilder A genuine boy scout moving picture play, "Knights of the Square Table," has been announced by Thomas A. Edison, Inc. It is an honest-to-good-ness representation of Boy Scout life, for several reasons. National Field Scout Commissioner James A. Wilder wrote the play from which the seen ario was made, and he himself takes the part of scout master. The scout troop exhibited is composed of boys employed by the national headquar ters. In the set-up of camp, they show how admirably Mr. Wilder's pjrie tree patrol system works When the play was produced in the Edison studios, the director became so filled with enthusiasm over hia sub ject and its widening posslbilites that he gathered his actors around him and talked scouting to them until they one and all were enthused with the plan. The result was a "movie" that should be shown m every city and town, and scout masters will no doubt been keen In their competition to se cure it first In their locality.

June 18. 1917. My Dear Mr. West: I have just received your teleeram indicating that the national boy scout campaign will bring in S15.00(b 000 In subscription to the liberty loan, representing 125,000 individual sub scriptions. This is a wonderful record, of which you and every member of the boy scout organization have reason to be proud. I was peculiarly Interested in this part of the campaign because of the manliness, energy and patriotic spirit displayed by the boy scouts from whom I had the pleasure of buy ing bonds during my recent trip in rough, tne country, it was an in spiration to me to witness witn what earnestness these splendid young fel lows threw thmeslves into this work for their country. As a result of this campaign I have gained renewed ad miration for the scouts and hope you will find the means for letting the individual members of the organiia- FQf SUBJECT OF Food Commission Hears That Advance Makes it Come too High For Hawaiians I'oi now takes its place among the foodstuffs against which complaints have been voiced as being toy high in price. A complaint against the present price of poi was made to the tood 'jommission today by a Hawaiian ho is reported to have asserted that many Hawaiians are now unable to purchase it, although it is the staple diet ot the race. The Hawaiian was requested by J F. Child, assistant executive officer to secure all data possible as to the reasons for the high price, and to take into consideration land rentals, the price of taro and the cost of la bor. He went away with the assur ance that his complaint would be in vestigated if there were concrete grounds for it. Attorney A. L. Castle, executive of fice, offers a good reason for the high price of poi. "The real reason for the high price," he savs. "is the tremendous credit business now being done by the fac tories and the peddlers. If the poi business could be run on a cash basis. there would unquestionably be a ma terial drop in the price of poi. Prac tically all concerns are writing off bad accounts each year." Mr. Castle says the same condition prevails in the fish business. He points out one fishing concern that wrote off $4900 of bad accounts last year. WILL WAYNE IS Promotion to rank of major was an nounced today from national guard headquarters for Capt. Will Wayne, assistant to the adjutant general. Wayne is also transferred from the quartermaster corps to the adjutant general's department, national guard. News that Wayne has been appoint ed as major will be of interest to a big circle of friends, who know him to bp a booster for the euard and a hard worker for its betterment. ; HUMAN COLLISION I SCALDS WOMAN WITH I BOILING HOT SOUP Hot soup scalded Mrs. January Duso of Lilihia near Kukui street, so badly last night that the police ambulance was rushed to the scene of the acci dent and she was brought to the Emer gency hospital for treatment. Al though severely burned, Mrs. Duso was able to return to her home. Mrs. Duso declared as she carried a pot of boiling hot soup from the kitchen to the dressing room she col lided with another person. Evidently she got all the soup, for she was the only person found suffering from burns. Her face, chest and arms were scalded. The inventor of the lamp ag we know it, with the wick fitting into a cylinder and an upward air current supplying oxygen, is said to have been Alme Argand, a Swiss, born in 1755. tion who assisted in the sale of liberty bonds know of my deep and sincere appreciation of their cordial support and patriotic work. Witn warm regards, I am, Very sincerely yours, W. O. M'ADOO, James E. West, Esq., The Boy Scouts of America, New York, N. Y. City of New York, Office ot the Mayor. Dear Mr. West: Will you on my behalf congratulate the boy scouts who have done such good work in soliciting subscriptions to the liberty loan. The figures are most surprising, and are a fine test! monial to the perserverance and abil ity of young America. Very truly yours, J. P. MITCHELL, Mayor. NOTICE.
