It vat a bright moonlight last
night and the city light department
is hoping that tonight is a bright
moonlight night and that every night
from now on until it rains heavily is
a bright moonlight night. The city
street lights were out all last night
and will continue to be dark until
Jupe Pluvius brings along his water
ing cart with a bumper crop of show
ers. The city light department depending
on the Nuuanu Valley reservoirs with
which to make power and light is prac
tically out of business owing to the
shortage of water. This mornin?
there was only 11 feet 3 inches in No.
1 reservoir. 8 feet in No. 2 basin. 11
feet in No. S tank and II feet in No. 4
This is barely sufficient to supply the
city with drinking water and as a re
sult the city has been without light
so far as the street lamps are concern
ed for the past three nights.
The Maole ditch from Hillebrand
Glen to No. 4 reservoir was unoffic
ially opened the other day tQ bring in
water tut the flow is not great al
though every little bit helps.
The Beretama ctreet pump is still
working hard to keep the upper levels
of the city supplied with artesian well
water and artesiao well water may
have to be used to supply the lowtr
levels if the drought keeps up.

ly Interpreting road building apecSfc
cations, the report of the committee
of five who investigated the Manoa
road; work was presented last night

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.
In specifying defects the report
pointed out that instead of lawn loam
being placed for a five foot width for
sidewalk street material rubbish had
been used; Recommendation that
Kuahipe drive and Hillside avenue
pavement be torn up. to learn how
the subbase was rolled, the pavement
having given out in several places al
ready was included in the report.

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.

The remodeling of the store fronts

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. The Honolulu op the
old 4aya is passing, i People do not
notice it so much when one building

the main thoroughfare of a .city the
size' of Honolulu suddenly covers it
self up in a blanket of wood and can
vass, snores and grunts for several
months amongst showers of lathe and
plaster dust, and finally emerges,
gleaming, new. and Impressive, then
the people begin to realize that Hono
lulu. 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."

R0WD NOT BIG ENOUGH
SO CALLS OFF SUICIDE
Because he found khat a'ter he had
climbed a ladder to the top of a tele
phone pole, tied a rbpe to the cross
beams, noosed the rope and stuck the
noose over his head and prepared to
dive off the ladder into eternity, the
crowd of spectators wasn't big
enough for a theatrical suicide, a Jap
anese on Kauai postponed the exhibi
tion indefinitely. 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. We shall end this for
midable war united and victoriously
so that our countries can expect an
era of prosperity. May God grant it."
The reig'n of Mirth, Music and Mel
ody with a capital M .will be ushered
in at the Bijou theatre beginning to
morrow night.: If you have net yet
entered your reservation for the big?
gest musical comedy event that has
come to ; Honolulu in years, do so at
once, otherwise you. will nss the hit
of the local Reason. '
The heavy . demand for seats' Indi
cates the welcome that the Honolulu
theatrical patrons of years one by
will extend to Monte Carter and his
gay, dashing aggregation of comely,
merry, vivacious girls who can sing as
delightfully as they can trip the latest
steps of Terpsichore. Those who
know Carter's ability in getting to
gether' a show , that caters to all
amusement' lovurs, nee6T"6o guarantee
as to the standard of the engagement
which will have its premier perform
ance Saturday night..
Carter is a show in himself. In the
stage character of "ly," a vehicle
which enables him to assume the role
of a Jewish comedian, Carter has a
whirlwind line of fun and comedy
that is bound to bring down the audi
ence. Every line, , every Joke, every
stage scene smacks of the newest and
most up-to-date in the musical comedy
line, and every minute he holds the
limelight means a hjugh.
But while Carter is the king of fun- j
sters, be has brought, to Honolulu an
able supporting cast of $ principals?
pretty and lively girls who will intro-j
duce the newest in songland and show
the latest steps augmented by lilting
tunes, while the gowjis" promise to be
a revelation.
There is something - doing every
minute. Snap and vim : characterize
every specialty cf which there will be
plenty to satisfy the most exacting
audience.
