V . ' ,Gear, who has been bead clerk for a little xver a month, and Judge Harry Irwin. An Investigation of the con dition of the books will probably be made as the result of a letter by Judge Irwin to the board of supervisors stat ing tbe condition of the books, and after reference of that letter to the finance committee. In the hands of a former district court clerk, the books are said to have been continually behind and It not until A. V. Gear came into the position that the condition of the books was revealed. No doubt is held as to the honesty of the last clerk, al though it is said that his work has proved that he was not fit to bold the positlpn. 8ince 1910. when H. N. Clark was discharged from tbe position following the discovery that he had misappro- priated the funds of the police court, the books have not been up to date. They have not been balanced since ' May 15, 1909.

We bad over eight hundred Knights Templars, Sbriners and Scot tish Rite masons who lined up in uni form on each side of the civic audi torium. The ambulance corps, one hundred and twenty-four strong, came in and stood under the drop light, tbe rest of the house being in darkness. Over tbe stage in the organ loft, were fifty buglers of the naval training sta tion. On tbe sage were the Masonic dlgnataries and executive committee and Gen. Liggett, U. S. A., in uniform and side arms, with fourteen of bis staff. That was the setting and you can imagine the impression it pro duced on all of us.

Auditor James Bicknell stated that while ' this statement of an over-deposit was true it did not necessarily mean that the other accounts were obbed because there was always enough money on hand to account for that. Mr. Gear has . spent much extra time on the books, but will; now await the action of the board of supervisors before going ahead further. Y AT L Music from 12 to 4 in the afternoon and 7 to 9 in' the evening Refreshments served on the Balcony Afternoon and evening of Opening Day m SATUM3)Ay0 AUGUST 11TH During the past few months of alterations, we have received quantities of New Merchandise which we were compelled to hold in reserve for lack of display room. On completion and opening of our modernly equipped store, the entire stock will be open for inspection and what's more, the prices at the time these purchases were made will govern the selling prices at the Opening. In the past few weeks prices on all Dry Goods have been advanced at least 25 per cent by the manufacturers. We would particularly call your attention to our late importations from China of Silks, Grass Linens ana Drawn Work these will be admirably displayed on the balcony of our new store. j A hearty welcome awaitr you at our New Store YATL LOY King Street FOOD BODY HAY PROHIBIT GRAINS IN BOOZE MING (Con tinned from pax 1.) - the question as he had not looked Into thoroughly. Maylnerease Imports The question has arisen, however, the effect such a refulatton would hare on tbe liquor traffic The opinion has been expressed that, if the beer and sake breweries were com- Pnd to 8Pnd. the importation of "T- ; - League, believes the regulations would in a taxge measure wipe out tne "blind pigs" that have flourished in Honolulu since tbe law prohibiting the sale of liquor to military officers and men in uniform went into effect The reason for this belief, he says; is that much of the liquor sold in ''blind pigs" is beer and that it Is of local manufacture. "Personally I would like to see the commission make this ruling, said a business man today. "I read a report in the Star-Bulletin yesterday to the effect that many underfed children are attending the schools here. One theory which may be drawn is that much of the parents' money is spent for liquor." It is pointed out that the question of whether the beer and sake brew eries shall be closed for the period ot the war, at least, is for tbe public to answer, as public sentiment would be one of the principal factors in having the food commission take up the mat ter for consideration. POLICE COURT NOTES M. SHva was sent to the reef for three months for being unlawfully on the premises of Antone Botelho on the night of August 4.

This is the opportunity for Honolu lans to show the kiddles a genuine good time. A circus is something that the growing boy or girl will cher ish in memory for many years tc come. They are a most uncommon form of entertainment in Hawaii and It is unfair to the rising generation to cheat them out of the opportunity when it presents itself. ' Great credit is due the management of the Bijou for its lavish expenditure of money in order to bring to the ter ritory an aggregation of talent such as is appearing in the sawdust cov ered ring at that theater each even ing. The cost has been considerable and a large corps of helpers is spe cially engaged in addition to the per formers. Society appears to have taken up the circus idea and repre sentatives of the best known families of Honolulu have been on hand at both of the performances to date. There are several acts that are worthy of headline space In vaudeville and which are attractions extraordi nary for a circus. There are orbers that are genuine circus acts and be long nowhere but in the sawdust ring. There is a large family of clowns any one of whom will delight the heart of the youngsters. There is one of those circus horses whose name is Billy, but should be Beauty, and there are a couple of handsome circus riders to handle Billy. There are tumblers, and good ones, balancers of all kinds, trapeze workers, wire walk ers and comedians other than clowns. There is everything to make a per formance enjoyable and nothing to detract from that enjoyment. An evening at the Bijou will prove a big evening and one well spent.
