Campoell, chairman ot the billboard committee of the club, presented a detailed report of the re cent work. The attention of members of thu billboard committee was attracted to a number of unsigntly billboard signs placed about on trie sidewalks, adver tising the Bijou theater. The commit tee took the matter up with the city and county attorney and was assured that the municipal authorities would collect the signs and return them tu their owners. The committee called upon the trus tees of the Campbell estate, and in formed them of the unsightly appear ance of the billboards around Hotel and Fort streets, which enclosed the construction work on that building. The women were told tne billboards would be taken down immediately. The Ideal Clothing Company, Hotel street, next to the Regal Shoe Store, which has advertised clothing by means of huge signboards, promised the club members that its billboard? would be taken down after December 10.

The installation of a new switch board for the Castner telephone ex change has been completed by a de tachment of the Signal Corps and the lower post now enjoys improved ser vice. No longer is it necessary to grind away at a crank of almost obso lete type of wall telephone to gain the attention ot the operators; instead brand new desk phones have been in stalled in all the offices, while more ornamental and compact phones have been placed in Cue officers' quarters, all of which are equipped with an au tomatic light signaling device. Privates Richard Geon, Charles J. Costello and William Remers, mem bers cf units stationed at Castner are detailed as "Hello Girls" and have just completed a course of instruction in the operation of the new board, as well as drill in trouble finding, under the instruction of telephone experts of the Signal Corps. mill F GARDEN Have you tried lunch or dinner in the Crotor Arbor on the roof? Adv. FIRE PREVENTION RULES ARE TO REDISTRIBUTED Territorial Treasurer Charles J. Mc Carthy, who is also insurance commis-' sioner of the territory, is now com-' piling a list of fire prevention rules which are to be printed in pamphlet fcrm and distributed throughout the islands. j Cof. McCarthy has asked for sugges-' tions from different towns as to rules : which would apply especially to their conditions, and from these returns he will compile a general list of which, it is believed, will do much to lessen fire hazards and consequently lower the rates of insurance. Before the' commissioner has the final draft made he will refer it to the Representatives of the fire insurance companies and a'lso to the Chamber of Commerce. j At Hilo the Board of Trade is tak ing steps to have a fire marshal ap pointed who will compile a list of rules applicable to that city. This is the result of a meeting Mr. Mc Carthy had with the organization while in Hilo recently.

The express man carried a big box into the store of the Hub Clothing Company on King street, opposite the Union Grill, which when opened brought forth an extraordinary variety of holiday neckwear. It appears that the Eastern buyer for the firm realiz ing that existing conditions due to the war would make his Christmas a won derful one for neckwear as holiday gifts, bought this extra case of fine neckties of his own volition. The new ties have been marked from 50 cents $1.50, really remarkable values, and Christmas shoppers will do well to look them over early, as the Hub has a supply of Christmas boxes to put them in and they will no doubt sell rapidly. The Hub, as everyone knows, is still fn their temporary quarters at 78 South King street, just two doors ewa of Fort. Adv. lake Your Reservations Early ;.ien Vdur Cves Need Car?
