known to the police on the Young

to the owner's garage.
A message was received at the
police station about seven o'clock yes
terday morning , to the effect that the
ear, which bore the number 1778 had
been stolen the previous night. The
voice at the phone was that of a wo
man, and the same woman notified the
police yesterday afternoon of the nnd
lag of the automobile..
Nagano formerly owned a Saxon ear
but recently purchased a Ford and put
the Haxort's number on bis new car.
the police say, without having taken
the trouble to register , wnica in it
self constitutes a violation of the law.
Motorcycle Officer Btupplebeea re
ports that he saw the otoloa ear about
eleven o'clock on Saturday nigkt at
the comer of King anoV Ala pal Streets,
but was unaware at the time that it
had been stolen:
A funny thing happened at the Wal

Japanese came in and wasted to pur
chase a hundred dollars' worth of two
cent stamps. A sale of that sise was
never heard of on Maul and the poet
master wa curlou t know wby the
man wanted ao many stamps. The
would-be purchaser explained that he
had seen in the pspor that postage
would go up to three cents today, and
he wanted to save money by buying
stamps la advance.
: Of course the matter waa made elear
that postage would be three cents any
way aad that nothtno- could be oained
by buying two cent stamiia in advance.

When the class of those physically

but the valuable men would be placed
so that they would not be called until
the need for soldiers became more ur

were exhausted.,
May Affect Sugar Production
The plan involve a determination by
th government of what industries are
the must valuable, and thla list may in
clude the production of sugar in the
Islands, as an absolute food necessity.
Fanners ' organizations, shipping board
official and shipbuilders on. the. main
land, a well as munition makers, are
insisting on the prime importance of
their own employes in civil work.
The entire program will be mad
known from Washington as soon as it
is completed and fully approved by the
President to allay the anxiety prevail
