Weekly Mossman Lays Down Rules In Prohibition Law Unlawful Search By Officer Is Misdemeanor; Knowledge Of Violation Does Not Make Person Accessory Where an officer makes an illegal search of premises he commit s a mis demeanor. Unless a private dwelling, occupied as such, Is being used lor the unlaw ful sale of intoxicating liquor or un less It is in part used lor some busi ness purpose, such as store, rhop, saloon, restaurant, hotel o' boarding house It cannot be searched even with a search warrant for a violation or violations of the National Prohibition law. .. Knowledge by the owner of prem ises that another is violating the pro hibition law therein does not consti tute a crime by making the owner of the premises an accessory though a lien may attach to the premises in which unlawful occupation exists un der the prohiV'itlon law. The above were three of several highly important rulings made by Magistrate Mossman lu 'he Wailuku District Court this morning in the case of the Territory against Leong Mun Gun. Magistrate Mossman finds that In this instance the officers went to the premises on a lawful mission and that entrance to the kitchen was lawful since it was freely given but that en trance to the store room, which was in a detached building or shed, wheie the mash and other evidence was found was unlawful. The evidence showed that the de fendant rented premises to another and that other admitted ownership of the stuff that was seized. Hence Magistrate Mossman dismissed the case. The decision is a lengthy one und will be treated more fully in Friday's Maul News.

Hawaii's Delegates Put Case Up To Convention And Gain Action For Support In Education Claim Hawaii's claim to inclusion in con gressional appropriations for the ad vancement of education and Ameri canization work were endorsed by the National Association convention in Boston, according to an Associated j Press dispatch from Honolulu re ceived by this paper Friday afternoon. One of the chief purposes in send ing a full delegation from Hawaii to Boston was to secure the support of the National Education in the terri tory's efforts to secure justice and a recognition of its rights as an inte gral part of the United States.! The dispatch from Honolulu said advices received there told of the passage of resolutions. In the absence of infor mation to the contrary it is assumed that the resolut ions were passed in the form presented by the delegates from Hawaii, the text of which follow: "Whereas, the Territory ot Hawaii is and for nearly twenty-five years has been an integral political, eco nomic and industrial part of the United States of America, and. "Whereas, the people of Hawaii for many years have been grappling with problems of education which are unique owing to the distance of Hawaii from continental United States, and to its relatively large pro portion of residents of origins not distinctly American and to its pecu liarities of industrial organizaton due j to reasons of Climate, soil and local; history; and "Whereas, Hawaii contributes to the general revenues of the United I States, greater sums of taxation money, Dotn absolutely and relatively in porportion to the respective popu lations than several of the States; and "Whereas the Smith Lever Law and the Smith Hughes Law appropriate from these same revenues, large sums of money to promote Extension Ed cution and Vocational Education in the various States, the need for which forms of education are greater in Hawaii than in other parts of the United States; and "Whereas the Towner Sterling Bill proposes from these same reve nues further large general appropria tions for Americanization, for remo val of illiteracy, and for other edu-1 cational needs that exist in Hawaii ! to an extent equalled in no other j part of the United States; and "Whereas Hawaii is deliberately L excluded from the benefits accorded the various States under the Smith- j Sterling Bill; and this exclusion is an unfair discrimination, an injustice and an unnecessary hardship to which the people of Hawaii ought not to be subjected; "Be it resolved that the National Education Association hereby in structs its Legislative Commission to urge appropriate legislation by Con gress to include the Territory of Hawaii in all Federal appropriations in aid of education on the same basis as the States." Candidates Slow To Take Papers Only Eight Apply For Repre sentative's Blanks and One For Senator; Women Seem Doubtful As To Rights Only nine sets of nomination papers had been taken out from the county clerk's office up to yesterday noon al though reports have it that more than twice that many candidates will be in the field. None of the present mem bers of the house have taken out pa pers for renom (nation and Peruvia J. Goodness is the only one who has re ceived blanks who is a senatorial aspirant. There remains ample time for the taking out and filing of the necessary papers and the primary election is still more than 60 days away. Charles Makekau, Guy S. Goodness, Alfred Furtado, John Fereira, Antone Garcia, George Cummings, Sam Ako and Antone do Rego are the eight whose names appear on the list in the County Clerk's office in connection with representative nominations. Of these it is understood that Garcia did not take the papers lor himself. How ever, the fact that he had secured a set of papers led to a report that was sent to Honolulu that the head of the Wailuku-Kahului water department would be a candidate lor the place of delegate on the Republican ticket. The report was sent to Honolulu and was published as authentic news, much to the amusement of A. Garcia and his friends. Antone do Rego, is to seek the Re publican nomination, he said alter lie had taken out the blanks. "Paakai" heretofore has run as a Democrat but he voted and worked for Harry A. Baldwin for delegate to congress at the special election. Two women's names are being men tioned as possibilities for nominees, Mrs. A. Garcia and Mrs. Sarah Buck. As yet the amendment to the Organic Act has passed only the lower house of congress but there would be time for it to pass the senate also before the legislature meets. Mrs. Buck is re- Delegatet Win Attention In the Christian Science Bulletin of July 3 a four column group pic ture of the delegates from Hawaii, H. M. Wells, Maui's supervising prin cipal, William Hoopii, principal of Kahului School, Miss Elsie Wilcox of Kauai, F. A. Clowes, Miss Sarah Mathews and T. A. Wilson was pub lished. In the same Issue, under the heading of "Hawaii appeals for re cognition, delegates will ask conven tion to endorse its program," appear ed an interview with H. M. Wells. On that Monday night William Hoopii contributed a large part of the musical program and pleased the large audience immensely. Later he rendered musical numbers in connec tion with the programs of meetings of several of the different depart ments of the convention. Wells States Case The interview with H. M. Weils pub lished in Christian Science Monitor follows: "Hawaii comes to this convention of the National Education Association hoping to secure all the aid profes sionally that can be had, says H. M. Wells, supervising principal, county of Maui, Hawaii, and chairman of the Hawaiian delegation. We hope to have the Association indorse, the Hawaiian educational program, he continued and to this end we have framed a resolution which will be presented to the con vention requesting that it go on re cord as supporting Hawaii's appeal that the proposed Towner-Sterling bill be made to include the territories as well as the states. "This bill is but one of several surh which have been passed granting fed eral aid to the states both in the mat ter of education and road building, but which have entirely neglected the territories. While Hawaii does not propose to ask favors we do want what we believe to be our due. "We gave up our rights as a sover eign nation voluntarily and joined the United States by treaty. Since then we ha-.t been paying into the X'nited States Treasury annually sums greater than those paid by several of the states, yet all the states have been aided educationally by the Gov ernment, and Hawaii's educational system has received no financial aid. It is to receive this aid, which we be lieve due us, that we are working. "Hawaii's delegation to the conven tion numbers six. one of them. Wil liam K. Hoopii, principal, Kahului School, Kahului, Maui, being a native Hawaiian. The other members are Elsie Wilcox, school commissioner, county of Kauai; Sarah E. Mathews, teacher in McKinley School, Honolu lu; J. A. Wilson, principal, Liliuoka lanl School, Honolulu; and F. A. Cowes, industrial supervisor, county of Hawaii. In the past Hawaii has sent but one delegate to this conven tion, but it has been found that it is an impossibility for one person to attend to all the necessary work." ported to be willing to enter the lists as a woman candidate if she can do so j without resigning her position as a j school teacher. As the teachers are i territorial employes it would appear I from a casual perusal of the law that she could not serve as a representa I tive and hold her rchool appointment j even if the Organic Act be amended , to open legislative positions to women. Purchase Of School Books Direct Urged (ASSOCIATED PRESS) HONOLULU, July 29 Purchase of text books directly from San Francis co instead of from Islands book stores Is recommended by the supervising principals of the public schools in a report on the subject to the depart ment of public instruction. The re port says that the present method causes losses to the school depart ment and that the method of direct purchase from the mainland recom mended would cause no more trouble than the present policy, would eli mate loss and would result in profit to the department. The recommendation of the super vising principals is not a new pro posal but an old one that eminates from a different source. Heretofore it has been successfully blocked by Honolulu houses every time it has been proposed. The subject was dis cussed at some length in committee of the legislature in the 1919 session.
