That the Japanese in Hawaii, or at
least most of them, are ready to
serve the United States by joining the
national army, is the general expres
sion in Japanese circles.
T. .Murai, Japanese eleve'-consul,
said this morning that he believed it
is the duty of every Japanffo here
to stand for the flag under whose pro
tection they are enjoying their live
lihood in Hawaii. Asked whether h
had received word from Tok'o pro
testing against the drafting of the
Hawaii-Japanese for the national
army, Mr. Murai answered in the neg
ative. The receipt of purported instruc
tions from Provost Marshal Crowder
directing the exemption board not to
draft certain Japanese, is of no inter
est to the local Japanese. WTiat they
say now, is that they are ready to do
their share towards protecting the
country of their adoption.
Bids will be opened next Friday at J
the office of the department quarter-
master lor food supplies to be fur
nished the troops on Oahu during Oc
tober. Advertisements issued call for
250,000 pounds of potatoes, 34.000
pounds of onions, and 18S.000 pounds
of sugar.
