which he holds that distilled spirits
can bo imported into the United States
despite the ojxratloa cf the foodjblll.
A section" cf the revenue' tilt he
holds,' repealed the import prohibition
Clause' in" the food bll, and custom
houses have been ordered to release
importations which were held up af
ter the passage of the food bill.
The rollcltor, in his opinion, holds
that spirits, prior to Oct. 2, under the
revenue bill, which Is now a law, were
importable for beverages or other
,uses. but liquor produced subsequently
can S 'r be used for . other purposes

Just what effect the mainland rail
road embargo on freight consigned to
Honolulu will have , is inknown; to
' John Drew, shipping executive of Cas.
'. tie & Cooke. . He does not expect its
effects t be immediately apparent
t.wre, and refers to the fact that there
-is a Maison steamer en. route to Ho
nolulu with over 9000 tons of cargo.
Eastern freight for Honolulu now in
San Francisco will probably keep, all
the bottoms coming to Honolulu for
sometime supplied wltn cargo. Be
sides there Is a certain .Amount of
western produce which is sento these
'islands, other shipping men argue.
Although nq instructions have been
received from the San Francisco Mat
son office aa to how the business of
the company is being conducted since
Jie ships were taken tfver by the gov
ernment, it is assumed that the re
ceipts are coming to the company ss
previously, as the only orders received
. were to continue business as before
until otherwise instructed. -
7 Following the provisions of the ted-
: crai revenue law, the local Matson
' office, like other steamship companies,
is planning to begin the collection of
the three-cent tax on freight charges
and the eight per. cent' tax pas-
; 'scngcr tickets. ' : r .

war department show that 38.000,000 men are under anna in the
. world war. Of these 27,500,000 are arrayed on the side of the en
tente alliance while the central empires have 10,600,000 enrolled. .
But ft is pointed out that white nearly three times as many are in the
- allied ranks as under the Teutonic banners, not all the allies' available
fighting men are In actual warfare while such is true of the central alliance.
For Instance, Russia is credited with 9.000,000 but the present situation In-
dlcates that from the standpoint of being a material factor in the war. Rus
sia is at present a nonenity while of Japan's 300,000 under arms, not one,
other than military observers, are engaged in the conflict, while Siam. Cuba.
Montenegro, Panama. Liberia and San Marino are negligible tat tors from
the actual military standpoint
The figures follow:

Of Britain's accredited 5,000,000 not more than 3.000000 are at the front,
the rest being held in reserve or at home. France's force is represented by
actual fighting men. The United States while ft has 1.000,000 under arms
represented by the regular army, of approximately 600,000, including the na

mission's order commanding it to re
turn to the schedule of freight and
psssenger rates effective In 1S16
But Circuit Judge Ashford holds
tbat the injunction suit is still before
his court and declares that he will
proceed with it, thereby causing a
merry little tangle of jurisdiction
which was partially threshed out this
morning. Attorneys . on both aides
morning were to argue a motion to
transfer the action from the circuit to
the federal court. When Judge Ash- -ford
took the bench it was announced
that the case was already before the
United States court.
Judge Ashford wanted to know who
had certified . to the record. Clerk
Harry Wilder was called In and said
be didn't do It, Clerk Cullen also de
nied knowledge of the certification.
Then Clerk Ben Kahalepuna was sum-"
moned. He said be had done it under
instructions from Attorney W, L.
Whitney, one of the counsel for the
Inter-Island.
"Well. hereafter you take your in- ;
structions from the court and not from '
counsel. said Judge Ashford with
some heat .''This casaJs still pending :j

ary injunction, which tyas scheduled :'
to be argued in federal court this ai-
tcrnoon, reads, in part, as follows: ;
