It was nearly twelve 'clock last
night when the board of license com
missioners finished tbeir deliberations
aid announced their decision in . th
matter' of granting .the three liquor li
censes which have occupied their, at
tention for the past several clays.
The license of the Waikikilnn, Jack
Scully, manager, Was granted with the
same conditions ilnposed during the
past year. The license of the Leile
hsa Beer Garden,! of which Clifford
Kimball is manager, was (granted with
the provision that:' he sell draught beer
as well as bottled beer, and to require
the bottles to be opened on the prem
ises. -The board 'did not express any
objection to the opening of a bowling
alley at the saloon nor to having the
military band play' string music there.
H. Macfarlane of the Koolau Liquor
Company was granted his license on
eondition that the applicant give more

Two Lengthy Sessions.
The commissioners held two long ses
sions, one during the afternoon, which
lasted until half -past six o'clock, and
the other from eight o'clock until near
ly midnight, during which the com
mission for the second time remained
in executive session. , Most of the time
was taken np with) the investigation of
the charges against Hcnlly's Waikikl
Inn, License Inspector William P, Fen-
neu, assisted Dy . Attorney Uorrin An
drews,, who announced that . be was
representing the Anti Huloon League,
conducting the ease against Scully. At
torney E. C. Peters represented John T.
Heully. ; v.. ,
On the applications for renewal ol
the licenses in the esses, of Clifford
Kimball 'a Leilehua Beer- Garden and
H. B. Macfarlane 'a Koolau Wine Com
pany at Kahaluu, but little was said.
KimhslI stated that he had seen Col
onel MeGunnenle, who in turn saw Gen
j eral Carter. These army officials wert
of the opinion that it would serve till
I purpose if bottled beer were sold, pro
! vlded the bottles were opened in . the
csrilen. A bowling alley and other
means or diversions were mentioned,
and these would be provided if th
license were renewed. .
George W. Psty, asked if he had nv
further Tirotesf to make to th renew il
of the license, stated tlat he had noth
ing more to sr than he had stated at
tne meeting of the board last week.
Macfarlane Ask for Decision.
II. B. Macfarlane asked the board to
pass on the question of the sale by him
of a one-fifth interest in the business
of the Koolau Wine Company, and said
that if the board decided that the sale
I was an illegal one because permission
for it had not been previously trlven,
; he would gladly refund the 11000 be
had received from Mikl. the silent
I Japanese partner. 'Mr. Miki made a
I statement iu which he said that if the
deal did not meet with the approval
of the commissioners he would ask to
have the amount paid by him for the
one-fifth interest refunded' to him.
A letter frpra Representative 'J. K.
Paste was read. The Koolau statesman
protested against a renewal of- the
license to the Koolau Wine Company
on the ground that the Hawaiians over
there buy much liquor and take it to
tneir Domes and surrounding country,
"thereby causing much disturbance. '
It was stated that the Hawaiian had
mot t church one Sunday morning and
gone an record aa opposed to the re
newal, of the . license. ' '
Then up came the Scully, case, and
Inspector Fennel made a statement
which he claimed wpuld be vouched for
by witnesses. Some were on hand, and
otUers, he elaimod, "bad been eonven
iently spirited wa' this very day,"
'.;. ; ' Witnesses examined..
A number of witnesses were out on
the, stand, their evidence being, taken
not under path, as the eommision does
not1 enjoy this authority. They told
of' sundry violations; that the place
served liquor after the Sunday privi

long after the closing hour. The Bert
