V 1 k-f DEI. sun PUTS GAMBLING CASE i OF YEAR ENDE Let OF PRES ROAD BUILDING HIT BY EMBARGO REPORT RECEIVED M-B MINE : CONTROL SECURED PROFIT ON BEEF PRICE ON EBB IV. pin IT. . S U. X I IDE T JURY FREES 37 M asda Lig t Offers $150,000 Reward for Capture Executive of China, Vice President and Legal Adviser s . ,. 4- Information reaching Honolulu within the last week is to the ef- ' feet that Dr. Sun Yat Sen has offered a reward of $59,000 eacb for the capture of the president, vice president and legal advisor 4- of the central Chinese govern--f ment, or a total of $150,000, It is also .reported that the Chinese government has placed a price of $100,000 on. Dr. Sun's head; 4 4f "1 feel that it is my duty to Issue a friendly warning to Chinese in Ha waii against contributing to any loan or in any way financially aiding Dr. Sun Yat Sen's reported movement to foment a rebellion in China," says Tsz-ang Woohuan, Chinese consul, K who yesterday officially exposed Dr. supported by German capital and in . fluence. i .; . Lay Chinese in Honolulu are silent on the quest'.on of whether the Dr. Sun movement has reached Hawaii. Reports are going around thatmoney has already been cor tributedand an investigation has been, startedto find out if money lias actually been sent 4out of the territory. A copy oT the Peking Daily News,. English edition, now In the hands 'of Consul Woohuan, contains the mandate which officially denounces Dr. Sun and his followers and which urges their immediate ar rest and confinement.: Bonds Are Issued : ' While Cpnsul Woohuan has -no definite information upon - which he might base a report or ask local fed eral authorities to take action, it has been reported to him that bonds is sued by Doctor Sen and his followers have already reached Honolulu and that money has been contributed, here and sent out of the islands. Whether German agents are already at work here is not known and officials will not advance any theories In this re spect It is believed, however, that German agents are probably already at work on the mainland and in the Straits settlements. Consul Woohuan is authority for the fact that Doctor, Sea is now in Canton, where lie has surrounded himself with a so-called congress of 100 followers and members of his party. He is also reported to have two divisions of the southern army at , his disposal, as well as two or three V7hIns which he , designates as his ivy. It Is with these advisers and ' mis force cf men and ships that he expects to overthrow the present Chi nese government, thinks the consul; "China has joined the Allies in this world war," said ; the Chinese consul today, "and although she has no big army to send to the front, yet she is doing all she can within her own ter ritory, to aid her allies." : Consul '.Woohuan also points . out that the central government, shortly following its reorganization, Issued an official mandate which denounced Doctor Sea and a large number of, his followers. This action, adds the con sul, is one not generally known out side of China. German Agents Working Another important point made by Consul Woohuan Is that it is know a that German' agents and money were sent recently to Canton and into Man churia, This throws further light on the belief that Doctor Sen's proposed revolution is being aided by the Teu tons. This was done, believes the consul, to stir up the bandit tribes against the central government, as well as to Incite further revolutions which might be detrimental to the central government. This ajction,' he adds, was brought out in the official ' mandate denouncing Doctor Sen and his followers. - " Copies of the Liberty News, a Chi nese newspaper;, published , "here, which are now in the hands of the district attorney, show that, on seve ral , occasions, that publication urged the Chinese in Hawaii to contribute to the loan. ' , Information to be on the lookout for v 'Chinese subscribing to the loan or ' I -xltherwlse'-istiding Doctor Sen 'was re ceived recently by the district attor ney's office. Thus far that office has received nothing upon which to base an action. In the Chinese district, however, it is reported -that the pro paganda is already being secretly aided. - NO FEASIBLE SOLUTION -TO FISH PROBLEM YET GIVENSAYS CHILD "Not one concrete, feasible propo sition to remedy present fish condi tions has been advanced by fisher men, fishing companies or fish stall men since the Question has been be fore the public and the territorial food commission,", declared J. Fran cis Child, federal food administrator for Hawaii. " -; He adds that, in his opinion, the only way to solve the question . is to get the many public fishing rights in to the hands of the public, thus doing away with monopolies on fishing and ' bait grounds, and allowing all persons to fish when- and where they please. "An Investigation of the fish ques tion, principally the recent advance Iel price and the scarcity of fish in the markets, is being held by the food commission I this .afternoon in the chamber of commerce rooms. Fish ermen, representatives of the fishing companies, dealers and the public generally have been invited to attend. The meeting Is in the, nature of a : public hearing.:::-'-:- Mr. Smith it coming to Honolulu. Local Capitalists Perfect Re organization With Ballen tyne as Managing Director; Big Salt Lake Men on Board; More Claims Acquired : ; MONTANA-BINGHAM Is now in ful control of Hawaii capital and title has been acquired to all sub sidiary mines In the big Utah mining property, states a cablegram which has been received here from C, G. Ballentyne. ' Mr. Ballentyne has been . elected president of the reorganized company, which Is believed here to mean that he will give up his superintendency of the Honolulu Rapid, Transit Co. and take the active management of the Utah mining project. ... The reorganization of the company has been effected along lines which Mr. Ballentyne suggested, after he had made an exhaustive study or the prop erty at the request of a hui of local capitalists(,who were heavy investors in Montana-Binghani. Among those most Interested in the property were John Watt, Robert Shingle and C. G. Bockus, all of whem investigated the recommendations for the develop ment of the property made by Mr. Bal lentyne. - '- ; A Russian engineer by the name of Souukoff, who has been with the Gug genheim interests for years. Is to act as mines superintendent of the Mon-tana-BIngham property, it is asserted. Locally It is stated that securing the "services of Mr. Ballentyne to act as manager of the big mining property was consummated by giving him a big stock bonus and a large salary and long time contract As managing di rector of the reorganized mining com pany his position will . be similar to the one held by D. C. Jackling with the Utah Copper Co. His brother, Thomas Ballentyne, may succeed him as manager of the Honolulu ; Street Car Company, as he has held the acting management since Mr. Ballentyne's absence on the coast. Mr. Ballentyne was the organizer of the Rapid Transit Co. and its first and only manager since '1899. By the. reorganization the interests or cooperation of- a group of : Utah capitalists was secured, who were the promoters of the property. For inter ests held In adjacent mines, but in cluded in the Montana-Bingham prop erty, these Utah capitalists have been givo-i stock in the new organization and representation in the directorate. The message from Mr. Ballentyne is self-explanatory to those familiar with the ' Montana-Bingham property and the plans for the : reorganization. It fOllOWS: ; . .

Successor. 939 3t It took a jury in Circuit Judge Heen's court a little more than , two minutes this morning to reach a ver dict of not guilty in the case of Ah Hee and 36 other Chinese who were chargedwith being present at a gam bling game behind closed doors. The verdict brings to a, close a case with a history, and one that has been pend ing for about a year and a half. The room in which the Chinese were alleged to have been indulging in the "seven-'leven" pastime was raided by Attorney Will T. Carden, then second deputy city attorney; Deputy City At torney Charles Chillinworth, Detect ive Harry T. Lake and John Ness, then on the editorial staff of the Adver tiser. These four were the "star" witnesses for the prosecution, but, according to the verdict, their testimony failed to convince the jury that the Chinese de fendants were breaking the law. ,The; defendants were discharged and their bonds cancelled. Dr, J. S. B. Pratt says that doctors, dentists and optometrists of the city are making prompt response to his call for volunteers to serve upon the staff of corrective defects, organized to remedy minor ailments of drafted persons who might be unfit for mili tary duty without proper treatment. Up to this morning he had a list of 32 volunteers. A report has reached Honolulu, com ing through reliable sources, that the embargo on unessential freight, to Ho nolulu will include cement and all other road-building materials, as well as structural steel and iron for all commercial purposes. Governor Pink ham, asked today if he could confirm Or deny this report, said that he was not ready to make any statement. If the report should prove true it would have a far-reaching effect on all Hawaii, particularly as to the roads now building, and tor which sufficient material for completion is not at hand, and on all proposed new roads for next year. City and County Lnineer Cantin, when approached on the subject, said: "If it is. true that structural steel and iron cannot be shipped to com plete federal government buildings it seems equally probable that road ma terials cannot be shipped to complete city and county roads. Whether this would apply to road materials for the military roads proposed for Hawaii rests with the United States govern ment. Only the army and navy here, or the governor, who keeps in touch with such affairs, would be in a posi tion to speak definitely about this matter." STa- JLLi; i -i VC'J Tf iHV ritWS TOOAY That approximately $15.70 is the gross profit made by retail meat deal ers on a beef carcass is shown in a report submitted to J. F. Child, fed eral food administrator, by one of Ho nolulu's leading Chinese markets. On Oct. 2 this market purchased a beef carcass weighing 577 pounds. Eight days later it was removed from cold storage and was found to have lost 14 pounds from shrinkage. After it had been prepared to be cut up for the trade it had lost another 11 pounds through waste, or a total of 25 pounds. The carcass cost 16 cents a pound, or $92.32. After it had been sold at retail the market had taken in $10S.02, thus making a gross profit of $15.70 on the sale. This market sells about five carcasses a day, making a total gross profit of $128.50. Some of the higher retail prices' charged by the market are: Porterhouse, 33 cents a pound; tenderloin, 32 cents; sirloin, 0 cents; prime rib roast, 25 cents and rounds, 25 cents.
