of the1. Jurist, a expressed hi . these

Editor Advertiser Judge Aahford
la a open letter to Tho Advertiser
has rritieiaed the Board of Licesse
Commreeieaers for rescinding their
regulation prohibiting sales of intoxl
ratisg Hquora after seven o'clock p. m.
Home months ago, la a letter to the
: Governor, Judge Ashford similarly cri
ticised this actio of the board, and the
Oorerao after eonsultatioa with the
writer, advised kin, that the board had
good reasons for taking aueh action.
It would orem that Judge Aahford 'a
Tngieal method of procedure, certainly
. the courteous method, would have boea
to have ascertained from the board at
that time what their reaaoaa were aad
' to have advised them whether or not he
considered their reasons sound and
their interpretation of the law, correct.
Haw tho Hoars Were Changed
; Shortly after war had beea declared
by the United Htates the , licensees,
, either voluntarily as a loyal bodr of
' American eitiaens or on account of the
pressure of public opinion ' brought
' about by public statements of Major
Lincoln and General Wrong, petitioned
the board to pass a regulation pro
hibiting all sales after aevea o'clock
p. m. during the period f tke war. This
requert.was graatea. Later, after the
federal law prohibiting all aalea of
liquor to men in uniform was pot into
effect, the licensees requested that this
. regulation . rescinded, : i ' '
1 - la view of the fae that' the law de
finitely - lies the closing - hours of
nalooaa. at slevea-thtrty o'eloek. p. m.
tho board believed that, U aot acceding
te this request, it would be summing
powers beyond those granted them un
der the law aasaod by the represents
Uvea of the eitiaens of Hawaii.
. '.Together with this action they pass
ed a regulation prohibiting all sales
of liquor for consumption off the licens
ed premises after ve o'clock p. m.

brgaaUatioa of the committee has

representing Mnu H. D. Case: Kauai,
James Henderson, Hawaii, , and Vnles
tine ft. Holt, Oahtt. After numbers of
consultations and " considerable
amount of deliberation and careful eon'
sideratioa, the committee has selected
Charles K. Willard as secretary and be
will opea offices for the fair committee
within the nest few days aad put the
machiaery of fair making into motion
Secretary Is Exporlsnced u' ,
Mr. Willard haa beea is spec tor for

As yet plans for the first Territorial
fair, are purely formurative. . The preb
ability is the fair period will be five
days, certainly aot mora and probably
not less. Since many of the exhibits
will come from tho outside Islands aad
some may not ba ia plana the first day,
it is probable the full five days will be
utilised. June 10 to IS inclusive are
the prqponed daya had have beea tenta
tively selected with the idea af giving
reoemtioa to a typically Hawaiian day
aa the big day of the fair. Should ob
Jection arise to the dates for any res
son, however, it will be possible to sel
a little forward or to set bark as
might ba desired,
ftevaral Sltsa Considered
Grounds for the fair ia a matter that
has had some consideration but has aot
beea determined. Several sites are Ba
rter consideration by the members of
the committee, The advantages of each
site will be carefully considered before
a selection has beea made.
So also are the special attractions af
the fair matters which will be later
determined. ' It is certain the Terri
toriul fair will have all of the-most at
tractive features of those which were
held at Hilo and Wailuku and other,
added. The committee has the advaa
tags of ths experience gained by Hilo
and Wailuku witk Hawaii County aad
Maul County fairs. Already applica
tions and requests for informntioa have
eome from the mainland for the instal
lation of amusement feat urea.
Offer New Features
Undoubtedly livestock and agricul
tural products will form the chief dis
plays in accordance with the usual
custom of state and county fairs. This
year the opportunity will be at hand
to show what toe Territory is doing
in the way of making itself capable of
sustaining itself from its oWa produce,
snimal and vegetnble. There will also
bs an opportunity for the women to
show what they are doing in food con
servation. Races and polo games are under
consideration. Whether these will be
held aud the extent in which they will
enter the program will depend on the
location selected and the facilities af
forded for such sports on the site
finally selected.
Must' Bs Bigger
All of these things and scores of
others will be for the committee, to de
termine and the members renlize their
positions are no sinecures and their
terretary, upon whose shoulders will
naturally fall the major part of sicca
tive work, will he a busy man for the
time ia none too long. More is ex

If fish price continue .ta soar as

going to be a hard matter for some of
the poorer people or evea those' in

reported to the food commission yea,

waa slso made ithat while fishermen
wars endeavoring to obtaia a price of
seventeen . aad eighteen .cents whole
sale, the fish was being auctioned at
twenty-seven seats and in some cases
sold at retail a high as forty: centa. .

After discussion , it was voted to
place the matter . before the fish com

to allow the ahlpmeat of the fruit, on
