Says He Is Considering Leaving
Place On Bench That He Has
Held For Six Years, But Has
Not Yet Definitely Decided
.Chief Juatietf-iof the 8upreme Court
A.' O. H. Robertson i thinking of re
signing from the place " on the bench
that he baa held for over six yekr ac
cording to a statement that he made
laat night. , . '
"I am considering It. .The matter
ha not gone further than that," aaid
'edge1 Robertson last night when asked
eonrcrning a report.
"I have been considering it for
eome time," he edded, but he we un
willing to etate reasons, and when
aked If My particular factor . in .the
lluation woaU ' decide the euestlon,
he replied there, was nothing more
that he could add at this time.
It was stated last night that any.

member of the Honolulu Bar Asso
ciation. 1
"This is the first word that I have
heard of it," said J. W. Catheart,
president of the bar association, and
be added that no hint of the matter
bad .come before the association.
In Second Term
Judge Robertson ha now served
about half of his second term as chief
justice. Following a long period of
activity in public office and as a prac
tising attorney, be received bis first
appoiutment as chief justice in March
of 1911. He was reappointed by Presi
dent Wilson iu August of 1915, .
On a former occasion while he was
serving his first term on the supreme
bench a report gained currency that
he intended to leave the bench, but at
that time Judge Robertson waa quick
to make public denial that he had any
such intention. Tbis was in May of
1914 when it was stated that he in
tended to oppose Delegate Kuhio for
the Rpueblican nomination as delegate
to congress.
In connection with the report that
Judge Robertson intended to leave the
supreme bench, a reason advanced is
that active professional life may be
found to afford greater scop for bis
abilities anil as well be more remunera
tive than the post he now holds. State
ment that he has made in the past, it
ia said, gm' some basis to thi view
end it i well recognized that bis
capabilities might well find expression
in new and larger activities, as he has
yet to pass fifty, though this will hap
pen Heptember 3 next.

Jndge Robertson has always been a
prominent Republican. He served as
delegate to Republican national conven
tion in 1U01 and 1U08 and be wa
Republican national committeeman for
Hawaii from 190 to 1910. .

he was appointed United Htatef district

Matson. Steamers practically
Precludes ForvVarding of Frilit
It was estimated yesterday that the
banana growers of the Island would
suffer a financial loss of -about 1 5,000
for the first month daring which the
four Mstson steamer will be used by
the government for service in the Pa
cific. Should they be kept in the gov
ernment service for a, longer period
of time, the loaa will naturally be eor
resnondimrly greater. . ; ', v v
Few, if any, bananAi will be shipped'
from toe Islands during tho next month,
for Cn,st)e A Cooke, local Matson agents,
informed u shippers Saturday that no
more could be handled , until further
notice. Oceanic steamers have space
for but few bananas, for they are gen
erally filled to capacity' with through
cargo from the Antipodes,
fttaay Baaanaa Shipped
As a rule about twenty thousand
bunches have been shipped monthly to
the Coast on Matson steamer wnicn
have ' in the ; past furnished the only
mean of transportation for them.
When one shipper was asked yesterday
whether or not bananas could ssfelv
be shipped to Han Francisco on the
faster sailing vessels which are i now
la the Matson service, he frankly stat
ed that suh could not even be consid
ered, for the seven pays required for
steamer passage was about the maxi
mum Of time in getting such perishable
fruit as bananas to the mainland mar
ket in good condition.
. Other than bananas, pineapples sre
the only Island perishable fruit ship
ped to the mainland, but little if any
loss will be suffered in these, as all of
the fruit that otherwise would be ship
ped, can be handled by the canneries.
Fruit, men. stated yesterday that a
great shortage in California fruit would
be experienced by Island folk, for with
the larger Matson steamer removed
from the run, it ia estimated that only
about one-fourth of the normal impor
tation ia being -received.
May Regulate Price ..
As in the case of the Island fruit,
other thaa apples, no California fruit
can be shipped here ou tbe ships of tbe
Alaska Packers' fleet. Apples will be
used, it is thought, in the stead of
other mainland fresh frnits, for these
are hardly considered a perishable and
would easily withstand the passage of
twenty or. twenty-five days and even
longer If necessary. It ia also felt that
unless some action is taken by the food
commission to regulate; the prices of
imported Ice bouse . goods, ' they will
aviate sky high, aa there will not be
enough to supply the demand, and only
the wealthier people will be in a post;
tion.tq buy. This will probably be
taken up wltn members or the commie
sion today.
.Although batter and eggs will prob
ably be given the preference in spec-,
the shortage of ships should stimulate
the sale and use of Island poultry.
Severn! Chinese are preparing to go
Into the chicken business on a large
scale, anticipating a shortage in ice
house space for many months to come.
It is said that tbey are going into the
business oh a more extensive scale than
ever before attempted here and it is
also said that contract have been sign
ed to supply the larger markets for the
uext; year or .two.
This probably will have a salutary
effect ou the local market, for if these
contracts are for the length of time
which has been rumbred, the poultry
industry should be well established by
the time tbe larger Mutson ships or
others of equal or greater ice house
rapacity, are returned to the Hawaii
Coast run.
May Tise Foreign1 Ships
Many local firms feel Confident that
permits will bo issued by tbe Coast
representative of the Federal (Shipping
Board to foreign transpacific vessels to
carry freight between the Islands and
the mainland. However, Owners of
both Dutch and Japanese liners seem
disinclined to accept these permits, for
ehoyld they have, to accept the shorter
haul to Hawaii, they would be. de
prive) of greater profits whieh naturally-
accrue from the longer.
.Definite word ns to the decision of
these, companies is expected to reach
Honolulu by cable, possibly today.

When the war tax upon theater ad

"gentleman 'a agreement'1 entered in
to, by all that none would raise admis
sion i prices, just .to, make "evea"

The agreement permitted theaters to
add only the actual amount of the war

they had been. , Persons paying ten'
cents, for a ticket .would be .obliged
to pay One cent tlx; twenty eeht tick
