Lewis, Jr., is president with a re commendation that the report be sent to the board of supervisors for action. It will be brought to the attention or the board at the meeting tonight. The statement was made that En gineer Collins and his force were directly responsible for several glaring mistakes in laying out tne street grades and that lack of experience on the part of the contractor and lack of supervision over his work by the city and county engineer's office will be robably the direct cause of many failure in pavement, curbing and drainage.

Ad ILLICIT SALES FAfter October 22 Signed Permit j Necessary to Get Booze to Drink Off Premises Striking at the root of illicit selling of liquor to men in uniform, the liquor license commissioners yeeterday after noon, in executive session, passed a resolution requiring the issuance by the board of a requisition for liquor sold for consumption off. the premises. The action of the commission is to check the life and prowth of the start ling nur.btr of "blind I tea ' establish ments which have sprung up ever the city fince tho presidential orders re-gardiy- the eale of uooze to service men went into effect. The comnits noj'ers had decided that the illicit looio joints were being supplied by tne wholesalers, either kuowinaly or unknowingly, and the new regulation is aimed to check that sale. It goes into effect October 22. In order that the new rule will not work hardships on a certain class of consumers, especially those who tele phone i their orders, a number o signed requisitions may he left at tne dealers, to be used when desired. The inspectors office will probably be located at Merchant and Nuuanu streets, which has been decided as the most central location for the trade. Inspector W. II. Hutton will probably be given Portuguese, Hawaiian, Japanese and Chinese assistants to enforce the rule. After passing the regulation, the board decided to ask tne j roprietor of the Cockett saloon to appear be fore the commissioners next Thurs day to show cause why his license should not be revoked, it is charged he violated regulation No. 15 by seiiin?; liquor to individuals where there was reason to believe the booze was to go to blind pigs. The evidence agarnst the Cockett saloon is said to have been turnished by one of the four men sent to .jail by Federal Judge Poindexter yesterday afterpoon. FORTSTlffS SHOPS SOON TO STOP! LOOK!

BLOSSOM FORTH (Continued from Page 5) those across the street, . but the re modelling is being swiftly carried out, and it will be but a matter of a few weeas oeiore tne new display win daws will be stocked with appealing merchandise. The remodeling of the store fronts means more ..than merely rebuilding There is-a much -deeper significance" attached. to the operations. The bus! nessmen of Honolulu are getting to gether in the "Progress" movement, and it is surely a sign of the times when'one looks at Fort street in its present state. Everything"is chang ing, a ne oio intngs are giving way to the new, the progressive and the ultra-modern.

Is really a city, and that it has passed entirely, out of the town class The merchants of Fort street are to be congratulated. They have done and are doing a great work in' up building this city. And when all the scaffolding has been carted away and the workmen have packed their bags and shuffled off, the merchants may well stand in front of their new stores and gaze in admiration at the work before them. And Fort street will be a new Fort street, and Honolulu may well point to it with pride and say, This is the heart if Honolulu." ,.. - f IP MVS.17 . " .'-..' j Vf' !

The crowd though small, seemed greatly disappointed. The exhibition that - was almost staged is ;said to have occurred on Kauai early this week. People pass- ng along the Koioa road saw a Jap anese laborer carerully prepare the telephone pole for the dying act. A few Japanese, among them the man's wife, gathered about, but showed only mild interest in the proceedings. The Japanese took in the siie of the crowd and decided that the gate re ceipts weren't nearly big enough. Marshal Hindenberg. replying to a telegram from General Jekoff sent him in commemoration of the advance in Galicia said: "I am pleased at the continual spirit of conciliation and high military insight with which your Excellency is helping me to fulfil our common task.
