It has come to the board's attention

with the latter s adjutant to accom-

several of the companies and officers
did not receiTe their pay before leaving

Much dissatisfaction was caused prior
to and during the encampment over
the fact that there seemed to be a lack
of co-operation between the Quarter
equipment on requisition, at times.
The testimony in one instance dis
closed the fact that a requisition foi

might not take proper care of this
equipment The testimony shows that
proper field equipment was not issued
on the direct order of the Militia Bu
reau. In another instance it was shown
that 600 rifles were requisitioned for
and, while there were more than this
number on hand, but 240 were issued,
and it was impossible to obtain the
balance. At least one company went
into camp without sufficient rifles.
Brigade Mess and Exchange
It is generally conceded that the
mess for officers of the brigade was
unsatisfactory from the standpoint of
the service and the food served, which
was a cause of dissatisfaction to such
an extent that a large-number of the
officers discontinued their participa
tion in the mess at an early date, pre
ferring to have direct supervision over
this mess. The sanitation of the mess
was such as to cause two strenuous
complaints to be registered by the chief
medical Inspector, with the result that
an ultimatum was issued by him to the
effect that if sanitary conditions were
not immediately improved the cater
ing privilege would be rescinded.
The camp exchange privilege was
authorized by the brigade adjutant,

. Camp Commander
For . approximately three months
prior to the encampment, the camp
commander was a student in the Re
serve Officers' Training Camp at Seho
field Barracks. T. H. He still retained
command of the brigade and did not
delegate authority, hence the adminis
tration of his office was performed by
the brigade adjutant who was required
to report and confer with the brigade
commander, in many cases with loss
rof . time, which conditions hampered
necessary arrangements. This was
particularly true in the case of the
necessary ' preliminary arrangements
for Camp Liliuokalani, and there is no
doubt but that the discipline suffered
The board finds that the brigade
commander was officially relieved
from his duties. as a training camp
student on or about November 9, 1917,
for the specific purpose of assuming
command, of Camp Liliuokalani, and
notwithstanding the fact that he was
relieved from his training camp duties,
he continued to participate in the ac
tivities thereof.
From the testimony given by quail
fled officers, we find that the camp
commander was derelict in his duties,
and that it was not proper for him
to attend the training camp under the

trenches, at Scholield Barracks
The testimony given shows that the
camp commander, upon absenting
himself from his command, did not
aeiegate authority to the next senior
Officer present or notify him of ' his
intended absence and the duration of
the same. His absence, according to
testimony givenextended from a tem
porary absence to a prolonged ab
sence, and it was not proper for him
to delegate the authority of the com
mand of the camp, under the circum
stances, to a staff officer.
The fact that the authority of the
tamp commander was frequently per
mitted to rest in an officer of recnt
commission and. of necessity, linii'ed
experience, made it humiliating for of
ficers senior to him in rank to re
ceive orders from him while he Ha-,
acting in the capacity of camn com
mander. Th etestimony of qualified officers
shows that in no case could the camp
commander delegate his authority to
a staff officer. iSee Article 1. A. K..
Th eboard finds that the camp com
mander did not sufficiently acquaint
himself with orders issued in his ab
sence, nor did he leave instructions
regarding orders to be issued while a?
was away. There seemed to be a lack
of appreciation, on the part of the
camp commander, regarding his duti?s
and responsibilities as such, and a
disregard of regulations. This created
an atmosphere of lack of authority
which permeated the entire camp, in
many instances officers looked to the
army instructors for orders, instead
of their own superior officers.
A glaring irregularity has been
brought to the attention of the Tioard
from the fact that on two occasions
both the camp commander and the bri
gade adjutant were absent from tamp
at the same time, for a period of sev
eral hours, without authority beinc;
delegated to another officer, or any
notification being given of such ab
sence. Schedule
A source of serious complaint on
the part of officers was deviation from
the prescribed schedule of instruc
tion. This schedule was originally
prepared for an encampment at Scho
field Barracks, but owing to a change
of location to Kawailoa, there were
certain features of the same which
could not be complied with. There was
a general feeling among the officers
that for. such portions of the schedule
which were not applicable to Kawailoa
camp there should have been substi
tuted 'some progressive military in
struction. The general impression ex
isted, that this was not done owing to
,the lack of proper direction.
It- appears that; the schedule was
first Interfered with by the sending
cf a Hawaiian battalion to form a
part of the funeral ceremonies of
Queen Liliuokalani, which necessitat
ed assembling and. drilling of details
taken from various companies In prep
aration therefor. By so doing some
companies were reduced to such an
extent that it was necessary to con
solidate them with others.
Progressive training was next Inter
fered with to prepare for the review
to be heftl on Thursday, November
22, and three days were practically
entirely devoted to this purpose.
A further serious Interference with
military training occurred on the after
noon of November 23 and the morn
ing of November 24, -which were de
voted entirely to the purpose of taking
pictures of the brigade, although as
it happens no pictures were actually
taken on Friday afternoon owing to
the delay in he arrival pf the- photo
grphert i It .was considered that If
thetakiBff of pictures was advisable,
they could have been taken at times
other than 'tLose hours which should
have been devoted to drill.
' -"4 DlscfoUrie
' The board Inquired Into the matter
of discipline at the camp with a vjew
of deciding whether there we're grave
breaches of the same that would re
quire investigation under the orders
convening the board. This did not ap
pear to be the Case, arid such criti
cism as might be justified would not
be pertinent to this report.
Reslflnatlon of Officers
From the testimony given, the board
finds that owing to dissatisfaction
over irregularities at the camp there
was a spontaneous expression among
the officers of an intention to tender
their resignations, which action, how
ever, they were advised against.
Johnson Considers the Report Unjust
Gen. Johnson was asked by the Star
Bulletin today if he had any further
statement to mafee.
"I have little to say at this time,"
he said. "I feel that the main thing
is to work for the next inspection. I
will say, however, that the criticism
of my being in training camp and not
at the guard camp continuously is un
just" General Johnson intimated that he
believes the report carries evidence . f
personal spite. When asked directly if
he wished to make a statement on
thia he replied that he does not wish
to do no now at any rate.
He was also asked if in view of the
developments he had any thought of
resigning. ,
- "Absolutely not. Whv should I r

Mr. Huber has been at a loss to
understand why a copy of the procla
mation was not sent to him, and to
day was planning to send a cablegram
of inquiry to the department of jus
tice. About six weeks ago the Star
Bulletin showed Mr. Huber a news
paper copy of the proclamation and
later newspaper clipping to the effect
that the regulations were being carried
out in the Kast. At that time he stated
he could do nothing, as he had re
ceived no instructions from Washing
ton. Wharves to Be Guarded
With the regulations now in effect
:he first step taken will be the estab
lishment of guards to keep all alien
enemies off the , territorial wharves
and without the designated areas. Mr.
Huber explains that this guarding will
have to be done by the persons, firms
or organizations directly responsible
for the, wharves. Thus, in Honolulu,
the territory will have to maintain
guards over its own wharves, whii.
companies, such as the Inter-Island,
owning wharves will have to guard
Following Is a summary of the presi
dent's proclamation, taken from the Of
ficial Bulletin:
Laying Out Zones
"The first thing to do is to lay odt
the boundary lines of the zones under
the above regulation 13 of the presi
dential proclamation. Obtain from
the United States attorqney of the dis
trict the list of piers, docks, wharves
and other facilities which come within
the scope of the presidential regula
tions, and then lay out the boundaries
of the zones; preferably by drawing
some kind of a visible Tine or mark on
the ground. At the points where
streets or other means of access cross
the zone boundary line place placards
announcing that alien enemies are for
bidden to go beyond that point in the
direction of the arrow.
"In case of railroads and street car
lines and streets or other ways pass
ing within or through the prescribed
zone limits, no alien enemy ill be
permitted aboard the cars of sucn
roads, even on continuous passage, or
on or along said streets or ways with-
it the prohibited area, without incur
ring when detected penalty therefor,
except when on his way to board a
ferry, and then only on such cars or
streets leading directly-Jto such ferry,
Restricting Access
"All alien enemies must be prevent
ed from entering the prohibited
water front areas. All permits pre
viously granted allowing alien ene
mies access to these water front zones
have been revoked by the new procla
mation and under no circumstances
whatever will any alien enemies be
permitted to pass the water front zone
line. The penalty for intruding upon
restricted zones is internment for
part or the whole period of the war.
"If an alien enemy is discovered
within the barred zone, the guard
should immediately take him into cus
tody and detain him . and thereupon
should immediately notify the United
States marshal of the district. When
the United States marshal or a deputy
marshal appears to claim him, the sol
dier or other person detaining him
should surrender the custody to the
marshal or deputy marshal.
Consultation With .Officials
"Whenever the 'guard or other mem
ber of the army has any doubts or
questions concerning the proper loca
tion of the barred zone, area, the defin
ition of alien enemy, the scope of the
presidential regulation, or of his pow
ers as a member of the patrol, his im
mediate commanding officer should as
quickly as possible consult the United
States attorney of the district

"This system of identification by tha
inspectors is to be put into Immediate
effect and to be kept in operation dur
ing the whole period cf the war, It
not expected, however, to accomplish
a complete protection of shipping, and
the department of justice Is engaged
in planning a system of passes to sup
plement the .system of identification
by inspectors. The operators of the
wharves, piers, etc.. within a course of
a phort time will be officially instruct
ed to prepare a complete list of all
employes and workmen entitled to ac
cess to their wharves and other facili
ties and to sift out those who are alien
enemies and to Issue pass card to
those who are not alien enemies. When
this system is ready for operation the
war department will bo notified, and
from that time on no workman or em
ploye or passenger, either cf the
wharf, pier, etc.. themselves, or the
ships?, will be entitled to go' within the
barred zone without a pass card.
"According to the present plan, the
pass card system will not apply to
drivers or truckmen engaged In taking
freight and materials to the wharve
and other waterfront facilities."

Judge Kemp Holds McCandless
Has Right to' Attempt to
Show Frontage Tax Law Un
constitutional Despite Limi
tation Clause
That a person rarr.og the question,
of tne constitutionality of the. local
frontage tax statute is entitled to hart
it determined on its merits, and that
he should not be shut out from such
a determination by the 30-day limit,
statute, is the opinion expressed by
Circuit Judge S. B. Kemp in a decision
which has been handed down ia the
case of I 1 McCandless against the
city and county of Honolulu. , i
McCandless declined to pay his
frontage tax assessment for street Im
provements on Beretanla street. The
city treasurer decided to sell his
property to recover the assessment
and the day before the sale McCan
dless enjoined the city from making '
the sale. The city then entered a
plea in bar on the ground that the Mc
Candless petition was not filed within -30
days after the performance of the
acts set forth in the complaint
The decision cites the case of Ber
tram von Damm against City Treas
urer Conkling, in which the contestant. 4
raised the question that the frontag:
tax statute was not constitutional. The v '
supreme court held that the. statute '
was not subject to any of the detects '
urged. a
Judge Kemp expresses thejlnlon
that if the petition calls In the ques:
tion of the constitutionality of the ini :
provement statute, under which the
proceedings were bad, the plea In bar .'
should be refused regardless :.of
whether the constitutionality ' points '.
raised were sound or not He" points
out that the respondent admits . that
the petition filed by McCandless has :
rsised the question of the constltu
tlonallty of the improvement statute,";;
but urges that the supreme eourjt has ;
already decided the question. against
his contest , " : . ;v;v:
"It Is undoubtedly true," says th
decision, "that the deciions-of "; our
supreme court -are binding on this
court, but the fact that the supreme v
court has held the law not subject to :
the defects now urged against It does ;
not preclude other litigants from pre
tenting the same question here and in ' ,
the supreme court, snd urging; them
