necessary, a military or civilian guard

' It Is due to the rush of bnsinesn la
bis office durine the past .week that
U. 8. Attorney Ruber has aot read, the
official bulletin referred to above. "II
is customary for me to read the bulle
tins before they' are flled," he said
yesterday, "but I was too busy last
week te do this. There are seven or
eight official bulletins lying on my desk
now, and I will make It my business te
go through them all flr thing la the
morning.' '
His Opinion : : v':TV . ..
Mr. Huber in under , the impresaios
that Honolulu ia not meaat to be In
cluded id those cities whose waterfronts
are to be barred to aliea enemies. He
said yesterday that his reasoa for ex
pressing this opinion was that, if such
had been meant, he would undoubtedly
have been, no instructed by cable from
Washington, instead of being obliged
to get his instructions from "The Offi
cial Bulletia.''..;
Following is part of a general procla
mation issued by President Wilson on
November 16, 1917, regarding a dead
line being placed along waterfronts: -1
"An aliea enemy shall not approach
or be, found wlthia 100 yards of any
canal; aor within 100 yards of any
wharf." pier or dock, used direetlr by
or by means of lighters, by aay vessel
or vessels ,or over 000 tons gross en
gaged ia ' foreign Or ' domestin trade
other than flnhing: aor within 100 yards
of any warehouse, shed, elevator rail
road terminal or other terminal, stor
age or transfer facility adjacent to or
operated. In connection with any such
wharf, pier or dock; aad wherever the
distance between any two . of such
wharves, - piers, or aoeka, measured
along the shore line connects them, is
less than 800 yards, aa aliea enemy
shall aot approach or to be found with
in HK yards or such snore Use."- -
-Although Huber believes off-hand
that: the foregoing ia aot Intended -e
apply here, there are others who are wf
the opinion that It does, Huber, how
ever; will make a definite statement
on this point today.', - 'V .
tenon rot Aliens ;". ; V ,0'
Should the United 8tate attorney
decree- that Honolulu comes under the
regulation , ia question, it is probable
that those firms whose business necessi
tates employee going 00 to the piers
will bo ashed to furnish the attorney 's
office with a list of such employes aad
tneir nationality, SO . that paaees can
be issued. . ' t ;" ;
Ho that all. aad especially alien ene
mies, are fully acquainted with the re
strictions,: if they, are enforced by
Huber, the barred none will possibly be
marked by some sort of line, and signs
notifying alien enemies aot to pass
win 00 placed at rrequeat Intervals.
Where the street ears -pass through the
restricted district, aliea enemies will
not bo permitted to be aboard, even for
a continuous passage, it is said.' '
Ia New York and other mainland
cities, military guards have bees placed
on waterfronts with instructions te
hoot all persons, sueas or eitixeos, ca
tering tbs barred soses, 100 ysrds from
the piers, unless identified by the
special private guards which also are
on duty. These same conditions : will
undoubtedly apply to Honolulu, In the

"A statement which will probably' as

ney S. Cf. Huber when he Anaouneetl,
contrary to ' the prevailing public be
lief,, that bo federal -order Is in force

out Of port,'..,-'' ,...; .
: .The imly jurisdiction we have over

are concerned," said . Huber, to
forbid tbem going within half a mile of
military reservations. - But even this is
modified in the esses of Fort Ps Hussy
and Fort Shatter.. ' -.1 ;'. v ,t
" Acting1 under certaia regulations
which hrj themselves hsve promul
gated, the customs authorities and the
steamship companies have power to re
fuse admissios to ths wharves untU
some' time after a steamer hat docked,
and to stop anyons boarding a steamer
without ft sigaed pass. ' . t
"While a steamer is ia port officials
from the marshal's office end from oth

ters," added Mr. Huber, "but they
have ao power to iaterfere with or re
fuse . admission to any person unless
they have reasoa to believe that his
presence might be dangerous." -.' ... .1
' Mr. Huber said he expected (0 re
ceive instructions from Washington
authorising him to include waterfronts
in the barred none, but so far so -information
has come .to hand on this
point. He is of the opinion, however,
that such instructions will eventually

steps would be fsr more effective than
those Which would be taken by hie de

- Ia several of the larger : . mAialand
eities regular soldiers hsvs been, desig
nated te act in the enforcement of the
law barring the waterfront and piers
to aliea enemies, but Mr. Huber thinks
similar action is quite unnecessary la
Honolulu. - He said yesterday that the
loeal enemy aliens are ' pretty well
known, and the fact that they are
watched .by 'officials every time they;
enter the piers to visit an incoming or
outoing .vessel is sufficient precaution
at the moment, Is his belief.
Mr. Huber expressed the wish tbst
ths harbor board would carry out their
proposals to aa early completion, add
ing that it not only was a wise, .but
a very effective move.'1 :

that the hindmost runner should be

The trace will be very different to a
