WASHINGTON. D. Oct. l7.-r
. SDeclal Correspondence) -The figh
for nation-wide prohibition, now is ta
full swine. The slocah L has been
adopted Tass'a constitutional amend
xnene before Christmas.
Hawaii wouid Vbe alfected by this
action,' if approved by three-fourths o
the States. It would -mean the com
plete and permanent abolition of Jthe
liauor traffic. - r
In the meantime "efforts will: be
made to close the saloons In Ilawal
7 long before the time required for the
approval of an amendment to the con
stitution. Several measures are now
before congress, Intended to make the
territory " dry. These ; will be urged
for , cassace-immediately after con
zress assembles for the long session.
, December 3. : " v
Judgins from previous record votes,
tho next showdown will place Hawaii
in the prohibition column. It is doubt
ful whether a referendum vote wall be
accorded, although that plan Is favor
ed in the bouse. The District of Co
lumbia goes dry November 1,- and the
residents vero given no fhoice in the
matter. Congress ' simply decreed an
Icewater vdiet without a referendum

"Dry" Force Active
The Anti-Saloon League and other
prohibition societies are organisingta
formidable movement to put through
a' "bone dry' amendment to the con
stitution at the next session of con
The forces -led by Rev. E. .C. Din
.. viddie, Iiev. James E. Cannon and
others of the Anti-Saloon League are
. preparing for a great campaign
against open saloons. "
At the sessicfn of congress just
. closed the prohibitionists were hand!
capped by; tho promise of the Demo
.cratsx the house not to take up'any
general legislation against intoxicat
ing; liquors.; They had to content
themselves .with securing legislation
through " riders to important , war
. measures. They will be free at the
coming, session to fight for tho tcso-,
lition providing ' for ah . amendment
for; national prohibition.
. The senate "adopted the JSheppard
resolution at the last-session, but the
".house pigeon-holed It in the judiciary
committee. Immediately upon .the
convening of the regular session in
1 December, Chairman Webb : of ; tho
Judiciary committee will ask that the
: resolution be reported, Mr. ,webbj. is

" 7 At the beginnings of the last session
before the house was organized, when
there was' doubt as to whether'; the
. democrats would be able to reelect
$ Speaker Clarkv of not; New .York and
Massachusetts t democratic members
from wet districts ; threatened serious"
trouble unless the leaders of the house
promised to .call oft; the prohibition
. ists and defer action. on the proposed
amendment fop national prohibition.
: The democratic leaders gave their
pledge, but .- next session conditions
will be quite different and but little
. trouble " will- be had in placing this
legislation -on the program: .
Prohibition leaders ;in the house
and senate are more confident of Tic
; tory at the next session than they
', were in the session just ended. While
the resolution went through the senate
with but weak opposition, it was ad
mitted - that the necessary two-thirds
In the .house could be secured with
difficulty. Among several of the ar
dent prohibitionists a delay was re-
garded 'as of the utmost valued It
ould give them time to build the
- fires back home and make victory a
certainty later on. Estimates of the
'number who would vote.forTthe Shep-
pard resolution in the house were so
closo to two-thirds that It was not
- thought wise to "make a fight.
Plans for December
. Ever since the resolution was pass
ed by the senate the Anti-Saloon
League and allied " forces have been
laying careful plans fo the work of
tho second session of congress. Every
pressure has been; brought to bear
on members in the"; doubtful list- in
their home districts. w v 7-7

A. L Castle of Food Board De
clares 15 Cents a Quart En
- tirely Unreasonable .
If the present cost of milk delivery
was reduced, the prico now paid for
the product by the consumer could be
materially lessened. This is the con
clusion reached by the territorial food
commission f ollbwihg an Investigation
yesterday afternoon of the rise in the
price of milk; which went into effect
today. -Tor nearly three hours yester
day the Honolulu Dairymen's Associa
tion was on the grill, and Its side of
tho controversy. was heard, as well as
the side cf the producer. v ; - V
At the close of tho meeting, A. h.
Castle, executive officer of the food
board, declared that the Increase 'to
15, cents a quart for milk is. unreason
able, and that he intends to uso every
means within the power of the com
mission to prevent it. - -.:-V'.:'.
-It is possible." he said, "that all
cent . rate may be called for by. the
increased price demanded by the pro
ducers,: but: even that has' Jiot: been
proved, and the commission does not
go on record as approving even a
one-cent raise until it knows all. there
is to know about milk conditions at
the present time." : i
' AccQraing to-; S. - W. Smith, whose
statement to the commission was pub
lished in the Star-Bulletin yesterday,
it is now costing the dairymen's asso
ciation 6 cents to deliver a quart of
milk, this including pasteurization and
the coat of : maintaining the associa
tion. - ; r'f-'i'1- -:-- ' ' "
Producers Ask 9 Cents - -
Producers present declared that they
wanted 9 cents a quart for their milk.
Both Mr. Smith and D. P. R4vlsenberg,
the heaviest stockholder in the asso
ciation, declared it Would bo impossi
ble ' to pay the producers 9 cents a
quart and maintain the rate to the
consumer which prevailed before' the
low rates went into: effect today.
. lit the opinion -of the commission lhe
cost of between-5 and cents for de
livery is unreasonably high, and, X if
the producer demands 9 cents a quart,
the delivery, cost should be lessened to
meet this, added expense instead of
forcing the consumers to foot the bill.
Chairman Castic. . in ' calling - the
meeting to order, declared the com
mission preferred not to take drastio
action unless necessary, but he point
ed out : that the commission ; would
subpoena witnesses If necessary,' as it
has this power under the law. . r
Mr. Isenberg, representing the dairy
association, was the first speaker. He
said, in part: ; ;:; -' : ; ; r . v,
, Personally, I am opposed to a raise
in the price of milk to the public But
the producer has to be protected. If
the' publics-thinks, the producer has
been making money, then it is mis
taken. A great many of them have to
produce their feed.i I'm. perhaps; the
only one here who raises all the feed
needed at a dairy. It Is true that I
gather: ; between ; 15,0(J0 'and . 20,000
sacks of alfraroba beans each .year.
and they are good feed for, the cows.
As . far as feed is, concerned,' St is ex
pensive tj raise it But I'm not un
der the terrible expense the '. small
producer Is in feeding "bis stock;. .
Loses Cows in Test ' ;
"In the. last tuberculin.test last week
I lost .107 " cows. ;' I have only tested
once In 13 months. : I' used to test
every month, but' by the yearly test
I am able to raise nearly all the calves
and so bring up . my herd to its usual
standard in numbers.
"While I am In control In the dairy
men's association, I have refused to
take part in any of the activities of
the directors " as regards raising the
price of milk. . I'm not going to; use
my control. If the producer feels that
he must get 9 cents for his milk, then
the directors can do nothing but raise
the price. . I hope that no attack will
be ; made , on the association as i the
directors have been very fair. Of
course, I couia step in ana assume
control and put ray foot down on cer
tain things, but I'm not going to do It.'
In response to a question, Mr. Isen
berg said he ? believed 9 cents was a
fair price' to pay : the producer for. his
milk, But he added that the associa
tioh could riot pay 9 cents and still
maintain the present price to the con-.
sumer. v-v r :-Z'--
Following Mr. . Smith's statement.
Chairman Castle expressed the opin
Ion that the herds in Hawaii are, not
being reduced. 'Mr. Smith declared
the supply of milk. One day this week,
he. added, he refused the Alexander
Young hotel' SO quarts of extra milk
and Oahu College 24 quarts. He said
that ice cream was made with milk
only if there was a surplus, and that
at times milk powder was so Dsutu ted.
The price now paid the producer is
8 cents, and milk' Is 'Sold at wholesale
for 11 cents, he continued.
o Secrets," He Says
"There are no secrets at the dairy
association," he said. . .
The dairy association has two de
liveries daily, the morning sdelivery
being about double that of the .after
noon. Mr. Smith said that the con
suming public demanded ; two ; deliv
cries. : ; '-' ' itVlr .
-He declared that if there "was only
one delivery expenses could be Educ
ed and the price of milk to the con
sumer lessened.. ;": - V'...-: --
One of the .members of the commis
sion made I the point that the; stock
in the association was being held by
the big producers in order to control
the price of milk. -V' " 0 r .7 ;
Attorney -Frank Andrade pointed
out that, because of the high' cost 'of
feed and labor, lie has had to prac-
rtically abandon" the dairj" business.
His herd has been reduced fronulSO
o CO cows and his output from 806
to 200 quarts of milk daily. ; - -
Price of Feed High ;
"High price of feed And.wagcs prac
ically forced 'me out,"he declared.
T have never met a man yet who ever
made a cent in the dairy business.; -
One producer said he had. to borrow
money In order : to. pay the feed man.
f'Do you sell , to; the dairy, associa
ion?" he was asked. ; : ; '
. "N6.". he "answered. "I sell to Raw-
eybut I guess they're both the same.
believe that the producer should bt
paid for his milk at least what it costs
him." -4 .
BolK the Portuguese Japanese and
Chinese 'producers present declared
they wanted 9 ccnU a quart for their
milk. J. F Child, federal' food com
missioner, declared that,; in his opin
ion, the -cost of delivering milk could
be, reduced. Julius Bayer, private sec
retary, and business agent for Mr.
Isenberg," said that the books of th?
dairy men's association were conduct
ed In a slipshod manner, and were not
to be relied on. ; j ;. :'- :
- Further investigation - of the milk
question is to j be conducted by the
commission. ; No date has . been set
for the next hearing. ; . .

yandals, as .; told in, the ; late edi
tion" of yesterday's Star-Bulletin; For
forty years the hand of man has not
touched the., royal coffin of Hawaii's
dead ruler, until yesterday, when the
dust of ages was disturbed by the entrance-
of ; the criminals and the sac
red relics of the fast, resting on the
koa casket, were spirited away.
The royal vault of Lunalilo, the
king, is v located In the - Kawaiahao
churchyard.. ; It is surrounded by . a
high Iron spiked fence, whose en
trance is r guarded by a h eavy gate,
double padlocked. ; The door-into the
Vault ; is also heavily padlocked and
inaccessible.-T In the vault rests " the
casket of the king, and his father,
Kaianar, .Over the former waa thrown
a heavy l black coverin g decorated
with silver wbfk. Under this covering
lay me silver crown. , -
.The vandals.. evidently . scaled the
high fence, forced the .lock bn the
door Into the vault, and crept silently
Into; the sepulchre. , . '
Tilnsid'e,; th e dust of years lay - thick
oyer every thing. Four huge ' kahilis
surrounded the royal casket. The
black coyer showed traces of having
been rudely snatched aside, revealing
the silver ornaments. Rut the: casket
of the -king's father remained; undis-'
turbed. The dust gathered upon Its
black- covering - showed no trace C of
human hands.. ' ., v
And underneath the lid of the cask
et, had the vandals known, was a
treasure, far more valuable; than: the
crown'of anyklng. It as a royal
feather ' cloak, priceless relic of , Ha
waiian royalty.- But the royal casket
showed no sign of chisel or jimmy;
Evidently the thieves were" unfamil
iar with , the contents of the vault;
for. had they 5-known that the anccs
tral cloak lay beside the body of the
dead monarclV they probably would
have broken open the casket. 1 . ; .;-
Stealing away with th e ' crown and
plate, : the- vandals, entered' the vault
owned by Mrs. Koolau. Maile, which
has not been .opened fdr fifty year3.
The descent into the vault Is - by a
flight of steps. At the " bottom i of
these steps are , two doors.' These
doors had been torn : from tbclr
hfnges, -thrown on the floor in a
heap, and the six coffins ripped and
torn and : mutilated. ' Nothing was
