Barvey, who Is in Honolulu today on his way to Melbourne on special duty. Neither has his spirits been de pressed by his war experiences, which he admits were quite exciting. This morning aboard the steamer he was the wit of the party with which he was arranging to view Honolulu, Early in the war he was assigned to the British flying service but was af terwards detailed to duty with the trench forces. He refused to be speci fic in detailing his experiences on the western front His only injuries have been slight cuts from flying fragments of shells, none of them wounding him seriously enough to keep, him out of active service during his two year period in France. He left France on October 16. No fubmarines, were sighted by the ship .upon which he crossed the Atlantic. The lieutenant expects to be back in the trenches by "April of next year. MEN GIVEN RIDE BY "PEANUTS" PINCHED AS POLICE LEARN IDENTITY Two men were arrested yesterday and booked for investigation, in con nection with the stealing of a Ford car from in front of Phoenix hall. Fort street, Saturday night The stolen car belonged to Henry Williams, who noti fied the- police. Yesterday morning, the two defendants were arrested by Motorcycle Officer J. J. Stupplebeen, after they had been given a ride to town by Tony ("Peanuts") Ogan. The two men. Clement Keakahiwa and Hisashi Mukaida, left Ogan near Li liha and King streets and disappeared. The police were tipped off that the thieves had come to town, and Officer Stupplebeen was directed to search for the men in the vicinity of Liliha street. He later arrested them and took them to headquarters. Ogan later learned that the two men he had picked up and brought to town were held as be-, ing responsible for the theft of the car, and he went to headquarters and identified them as the ones he had al lowed to ride with him. LIQUOR RAID RESULTS IN FREE-FOR-ALL FIGHT A free-ror-an ngnt in wnicn seven soldiers are alleged to have attacked two liquor inspectors who were raid ing the place, occurred late la6t night in a Chinese store on Beretania street, rear River street. Two men were ar rested and booked for investigation, and charges will be brought against them today, alleging that they sold liquor to soldiers in uniform. The two men are Sing Yen, who it is alleged sold the liquor to the soldiers, and Joe Kealoha, who attempted to prevent the officers from entering the place. One hundr-ad empty beer bottles and two dozen filled bottles of beer were taken to police headquarters as evidence. Assistant Inspector Jack Roberts and Officer M. C. Medeiros made the ar rests. They had been watching the Chinese place all evening, and decided to rush it. They; met with stout op position at the hands of seven soldiers and several Chinese, they claim. They remarshalled their forces and placed the Chinese and Hawaiian under arrest. on botn aides or the pacific ocean, and it commands them all. It la worth untold millions but if we are to retain j it,' it must be adequately fortified There Is much yet to be done and while a great deal has already been done I want to illustrate the necessity of finishing the task by an example. "Suppose a ten-span bridge is being built below the elbow, and was sent to the local emergency hospital for treat ment The Infant escaped injury. The first story to be brought to the police was by the military guards, who alleged that a number of people at the Kuplhea home were carousing and making a lot of noise. They venter ' ia tr llpo tn tnlfA nrtinn in ana we wm say tnat congresa the mattw Then after tne shoot. builds nine of them but leaves out the tenth. The bridge is useless and all the money expended has gone over board. The thing must be completed to be of use. "And in the same way Pearl Harbor station must be completed in order to be of use. What we need here and what we already have will be pointed out to you In the trip we are about to make. That is the way it stands and it is up to you, gentlemen, to help finish it" Capt. Clark then went into details of what was needed and what was be ing done, none of which can be men tioned on account of censorship, but he pointed out conclusively that if the United States is to retain Hawaii as a strategic point, congress must move towards that end. Representative Ernest Lundeen of Minnesota asked what sum would be necessary and when told, remarked : "Well, the way I look at it, is give them fifty million if necessary. I would never have come out on this trip this morning if I hadn't thought that it was the most important in "the whole tour. This point must be retained at all cost" Senator Thompson of Kansas waa equally outspoken in his remarks. "Bet ter give them a million too much than millions too little," he said Congressman Allen T. Treadway of Massachusetts stated that wiiile war legislation was paramount and espe cially toward the part which America must play in the European war, Ha waii must not be forgotten. Representative James C. McLaugh lin of Michigan was for giving the Pearl Harbor naval station all the money it needs to put it into the best fighting trim. Other congressmen were equally in favor of making Pearl Harbor the greatest station in the Pacific Following Capt. Clark's remarks the vis'tors - were taken to the different parts of the station and at noon were brought to the commandant's home, where the wives and daughters of the staff officers gave a reception. A light uncheon was served. Among the congressmen who made the trip were: Louis B. Goodall of Maine. Edmund Piatt of New York, Charles A. Nicholas of Michigan, William H. Carter of Mas sachusetts, Thomas Gallagher of 111: nois and Harry W. Temple of Pennsyl vania. Senator Miles Poindexter of Wash- ngton, who had been expected to make the trip this morning, was not present, and at the naval station it was learned that he had paid a lone visit yesterday and given the station a survey. g RECOMMENDS LIFTING ing, the military guards declared that a Filipino, who turned out to be a local Chinese boy, had deliberately flred at the sentry tent with a shot gun, and wnen ordered to nan, ran toward the Kuplhea home. He turned around and flred again, they said. Then the sentry flred at the fleeing man, and the bullet struck a rock and ricochetted through the wall of the Kuplhea home, string the woman. The people in the Kuplhea home tell a different story, however. They say that a number of friends were fish ing at the harbor, and that yester day morning, one of the guests flred a shotgun and standing in the Kupl hea yard, fired at a dove that was sitting in the branches of a tree. Possibly the shots carried to the near by sentry tent. Some time later, say the Kupiheas, one of tne sentries aenoerateiy en tered the yard and fired Into the house, striking the woman. The military and naval authorities at Pearl Harbor are cooperating with the local police in an endeavor to clear up the mystery surrounding the shooting. ATTEMPT TO WRECK HAWAII TRAIN FAILED What is believed to have been an attempt to wreck the Hawaii Railroad company's motor car was frustrated last Friday when Motorman Harry Asau, becoming suspicious of two men walking ahead on the track and noticing that several papaia trees along the line had been cut down, re duced the speed of the motor just in time to avoid running into a tie which had been laid across the track. A little distance ahead was another tie and, further on, a third. Motor- man Asau gave chase to the two men, and fire a shot a,t them, but they es caped. He then reported the occur- reice to Deputy Sheriff Martin at Hilo. INDIA PLOT WITNESSES .
