Harding Vetoes Measure WASHINGTON, Sept. 19. Presi dent Harding applied his veto today to the soldiers' adjusted compensa tion measure. In a message to the house, he de clared that he was in accord with the avowed purpose of the bill but that he could not subscribe to its provisions. He said that Congress had failed to suggest a means of raising revenue with which to defray the expenses of the measure. In the house, where leaders say that they liava more than the two thirds vote which is necessary to pass the measure over the veto, the roll call was postponed until tomor row. The President, summarizing his views on the measure, said : "The simple truth is that this bill proposes a government obligation of more than $4,000,000,000 without a nrovision for the funds, which the executive branch of the government must finance In the face of difficult financial "problems and a complete defeat, of out" commitment to effect economies. These former soldiers, who served so gallantly in war and who are to be so conspicuous in the progress of the republic In the half century before us must know that nations can survive ; only whev-e tax ation is restrained from the limits of oppression and where the public treasury lt locked against class leg islation."

Angeles to the Islands it is hoped to j have her run an excursion from Ho- ! nolulu to Maui and the Fair. Plans i looking to such an excursion were ! taken up during the visit of the j steamer and company ollicials to i Maul on Tuesday. The proposal of an excursion run i on the City of Los Angeles Is the! outgrowth of a suggestion made by Lorrin K. Smith. Maui member of j the Hawaii Tourist liureau to have the steamer stop at Maui on her way J to Honolulu next trip. The counter I suggestion came from Walter Dil-! lingham of the company's islauds agency.

She would skirt the windward coast of Molokai on her trip up and arrive here in time for the evening program She cold either leave Saturday night or Sunday and if the latter plan pre vailed there would be an opportunity for those who desired to take a trip to the crater to do so.

Children Need Mot Give Up Od 2 Pullet But Must Show Birds One of the school children who re ceived settings of eggs from James Lindsay last Spring will receive an other setting tliis spring. U will be trio writer of the best led or telling of his or her results with the first setting of eggs. Another piece of good news for the children is that Mr. Lindsay will not insist on the full conditions under wheh he gave the settings of eggs be ing fulfilled. One of those conditions was that the child receiving the sett ing of eggs should give to Mr. Lind say one of the pullets he or she raised. Last spring was a poor one for hatching of eggs and raising of chicks, poultry raisers of Maui gen erally agree. Under those circum stances Mr. Lindsay feels it would not be fair for him to ask for a pullet when the young poultry raiser per haps only saved two or three chick ens from the hatch. Another condition that was attach ed to the gift of the eggs was that each child who received a setting of eggs should show at the coming fair a young rooster or a young hen from the hatch. That provision each child must fulfill and Mr. Lindsay is In sisting upon it. So instead of turning over to the giver of the eggs of a pullet each child must write him a letter and must also show one of the birds that was hatched from the setting. The letter should tell what the writer did with the eggs, how much of a hatch there was, what happened to the chicks, how many there are now living. What mistakes the writ er sees that he or she made, what he or she would do differently anoth er time and what was learned from the experience. There will be judges of the letters and what is said will count more than how it is said, 1 literary composition being a second ary matter. The best letters will bo published in Maui Nevs and copiei of the best letters will be mounted neatly on cards and displayed with the bird or birds the writer of the j letter enters and shows at the fair. In addition to this, there will be the prize of a setting of eggs for the : letter the judges select as best. j ,U License Of Notary Publics Of Hawaii May B2 Withdrawn (ASSOCIATED I'liESS) HONOLULU, Sept 20 Attorney General Mathewman, in a letter to County Attorney William H.

Rafcs For Carrying Of School Children Lower Than Year Asro Two contracts covering four school routes for the transportation of chil dren to and from schools have been let, three at lower rates than those that were paid by the county last year and for one route where bids were formerly rejected because they were considered high and there was then a question of availability of funds. Ren Akana wins the contract for carrying school children in the Hana district from Kaeleku and from Haou. From Kaeleku his bid was 24 cents each child a day and from Haou 31 cents. In each instance his bid is five cents less than was paid last year. On Molokai Waldemar Duvachelle is awarded the contract between Wai lua and Kaluaaha school for 25 cents each child a day, instead of 40 cents as was formerly paid. He also gets the contract between Kamalo and Ka luaaha school at 15 cents a child. Here there was no route last year. No oilier bids were announced from the other districts for which tenders were sought but should there be simi lar reductions in rates on those routes, and perhaps in any event, it may be possible to add one or more routes to operate between now and the first of t lie year or to exlend further the sys tem where it is most needed another year. 8 Raymond Confident Will Be Nominated Dr. J.
