Hutchlns stated today that he had been kept busy over since it was an nounced that the automatic telephone was to be Installed here. "Prominent business men of- this city," says Hutchlns, "have hunted me up to sign contracts for the installa tion in their places of business and homes of the new automatic. People of this city are falling over each other to arrange for the installation of the new phone. Everybody appears more than anxious to be assured that they can secure one of the new phones. "We have the rights for the wireless telephone also, and when the time comes may instnl inter-island tele phones." Hutchlns states that the engineers who will have charge of he under ground laying of wires for the new automatic will arrive here and begin actual work within three weeks.

It appears that he decided that his promise was worthless, for he told his shipmates when the vessel was but a few days out, that he could not be bluffed by any marshal or police offi cer and' would not come back. Sure enough, he failed to appear when wanted. Now he will be arrested and will find out that the arm of the Fed eral Court ot this district Is one which can reach even across the seas and can punish those who disregard It. The warrant will be Issued this af ternoon by Judge Dole, upon an affi davit sworn to by U. S. District Attor ney Breckons and will bo given to U. S. Marshal Hendry for service. The latter will cable to the U. S. Marshal in San Francisco, who will apprehend his man and then arrangements will be made to bring him to this city, where he will bo tried for contempt. liJ QUI II Just Opened SWAGGER CLOTHES FOR YOUNG MEN And men who wish to remain young.
