Landlords Must Watch Step Of Their Tenants Where Property Owners Have Knowledge of Prohibition Law Violation Lien May Attach to Premises Efforts at prohibition law enforce ment turned In a new direction yes terday when officials took steps to have the landlords of premises oc cupied by individuals who have been arrested on charges of violating the prohibition law order the tenants to vacate, the attempt being to put such alleged law violators out of business. Under the prohibition law there ia a provision to the effect that where ever the owner of premises has know ledge that his premises are being used for purposes In violation of the prohibition law such premises may be subject to the placing of a Hen and the enforcement of such lien to the amount of any and all fines and costs that may be assessed against the of fender and not paid by him. The In tention is to call to the attention of property owners the fact of ar rests made on their premises of alleged violators of the prohibition law thus eivine to such owners "the knowledge" required by the law in order to make premises subject to lien. In cases where liquor is sold on leased premises used as stores, hotels restaurants or even as private dwell ing houses except for liquor sales, it is thought, owners will pay consi derably more attention to what is going on in the premises than they have m the past. Should fines of 500 be imposed in two charges and a lien therefor placed on the proper ty of the landlord, the $1000 would make a bir hde in his income for the year. Few landlords have read the pro hibition law carefully enough to know of the way Its provisions may react against them and the officials reel that with an interest aroused on the part of landlords in their own pro tection they may put out of business men whom they have thus far been unable to suppress. Most Powerful Of All Hydro-Electric Plants Completing SAN FRANCISCO, July 11, (Asso ciated Press Mail) Pit One, said to be the most powerful hydro-electric plant in America, situated in the Pit River district of Shasta county, will be in operation next September, ac cording to officials of the Pacific Gas and Electric Company, owners of the project The output of Pit One, which is the first of five similar plants to be built by the company, will be 930,000 horsepower, officials say.

Higashiguchi has been notified to vacate at least one of the premises he leases by the owners of such pre mises. The owners were told of the law which permits under certain cir cumstances the imposition of a lien for fines and costs imposed against a lessee who violates the prohibition law. T. Higashiguchi, with a record of once having been convicted In Ho nolulu for violating the prohibition law and with two arrests on similar charges on Maui, was arrested for the third time on this Island on Sat urday evening by Prohibition law En forcement Officer Crabbe and County Officer Hookini Enos at the Eagle Cafe in Kahulul. Officer Crabbe in an interview with this paper gave out the following story. He had, he said, Just finished look ing through three of the Wailuku hostelrles and found everything run ning "Slick as a whistle", when he met Police officer Hookini Enos. Crabbe asked Enos if Higashiguchi was going straight and had stopped his traffic in bootleg liquor. Enos replied that he thought not and at Crabbe's instigation the two left Wailuku in Crabbe's automobile to investigate Higashiguchi's establish ment, the Eagle Cafe, at Kahulul. From past experience Officer Crabbe knew that should Higashigu chi see the officers approaching he would make an attempt to destroy any liquor held in the cafe and he gave Enos instructions to Jump from the car as Crabbe drove past the place and run into the kitchen im mediately. He Crabbe, would follow when he brought the car to a stop. The plan worked very nicely for a moment. Coming close to the cafe Crabbe darkened his lights and stopp ed the motor intending to coast noise lessly to the cafe door. As Enos jumped from the machine Higashigu chi see the officers approaching he nizing Crabbe and Enos dashed into the kitchen where he spoke loudly in Japanese. Enos was the faster how ever, and as attendant was about to throw a bottle of liquor through a window the officer seized it from him. The case was set yesterday to come up with the other cases against Hi gashiguchi today. -n- Problem Of Saving Lies Of Mothers Tackled By Gotham NEW YORK, July 9 (Associated Press Mail) The high rate among women of the United States during childbirth and the ignorance of the proper methods of nursing and care of the mother have led the Maternity Center Association of New York to publish 12 talks for mothers stress ing the vital importance of complete maternity care. More than a million of the pamphlets will be distributed nationally. The association asserts that more women between the ages of 15 and 45 die from causes incident to mater nity than from any other cause ex cept tuberculosis. Dr. Haven Emer son, of- the association's advisory board estimates that only one woman out of 17 in the United States receives the benefit of modern medical and nursing science at childbirth. The re sult, it is said, is that more than 20,000 women loser their lives during childbirth each year, more than 100,000 babies are born dead and more than 100,000 die under the age of one month. The association hopes to convince expectant mothers that prenatal care is neded, and lead them to present their cases to local nursing and public health organizations and receive per sonal advice and direction. n Crabbe Seizes Still At Waiehu Today Prohibition Enforcement Officer Crabbe this morning made a visit to Waiehu and seized a still and 75 gal lons of liquid.

Kilauea Returns To Kahuhii Run Much Dissatisfaction Express ed Against Inter-Island For Recent Treatment of Maui Traveling Public With the British steamer Valdura pulled off the reef outside of Honolulu Harbor the Inter-Island Steam Navi gation Company restored the Kilauea to her run yesterday and she made her voyage from Honolulu to Kahu lul last night and proceeded on to Hana and Mahukona this morning. Outspoken complaint and expres sions of discontent have been heard from all classes of persons in Maui at the treatment accorded to the Island by the Inter-Island Company. It is openly charged that the company without right took one of its passen ger and freight steamers off its re gular run and schedule without sub stituting another vessel for it and without having obtained permission from the federal authorities under which the company claims its juris diction lies, referring to the taking off of the Kilauea a week ago last Friday. At that time it is said the company sent word to Maui that the Kilauea was laid off for the trip for "necessary machinery repairs," while actually she was being used in efforts to pull the British freighter off the reef. Following the abandoned trip the Claudine was substituted and next the most unsatisfactory Mikahala while the Kilauea continued to en gage in salvage efforts. From several sources have been heard the proposal that concerted ef forts should be made to place the company under Jurisdiction of.. th territorial utilities board wjiere com plaints could be made without the de lay of communicating with the main land and as a result of which there would be some one to investigate at once who would be conversant with Island conditions. tr- Chillingworth Much - Surprised At Changes He Finds On Maui Charles F.

Clear Field For Jarrett Not Sure Dr. Raymond Objects to What He Considers Efforts of Cen tral Committee to Further Individual Interests "Bill" Jarrett may not ha' e the clear field lor the democratic nomina tion for delegate to congress that his friends have been expecting for him. Dr. J. H. Raymond is not now a can didate lor the nomination hut that does not signify that he may not have entered the field before the closin:; of nominations lor the primaries. This morning his reply to the query as to wiietner or not he would be a candi date for the nomination this year whs decidedly non-committal. If my nomination papers hall be filed before the date for the closing of nominations for the primary, then it will be known whether or not 1 am a candidate," says Dr. Raymond. I have nothing against 'Bill' Jar rett", Raymond continued. "I am sor ry he was not renamed for High Sheriff but the fact that he wai not does not constitute him necessarily ns the party's choice for delegate. One thing I do object to and that is the central committee taking a stand for any candidate before the primary elec tion and I want to say that the ren tral committee has no right to dictate who shall and who shall not run lor the nomination. If McCandless wants to come out, he has the right to do so. If I decide to make the race, that Is ray privilege and the central commit tee has no right to attempt to curtail the rights and privileges of any Demo crat." Dr. Raymond made It clear that he has nothing against L. L. McCandless, and said his personal relations with McCandless were and always had been friendly though he might not have agreed with him on matters of politi cal expediency.
