MR. Hutebiaa found that the vice
situation in Hawaii was the subject of",
considerable anxiety in Washington. It
appeared that the authontiea of the in
terior ami war departments had re
coived reports far from flattering con
versing Houolulu and conditions pre
vujling here. The laxity of the Houo
lulu police force and of the eitv at
torney, ia so long permitting vice to 1
flourish unchecked, are having their iu- ;
ev.itable effect in- diving Honolulu a i
black aye on the mainland. The de '
parUaents, Mr. Hutchina learuel, were '
strongly of the opinion that conditions
here must be remedied. The fact that1

he. w.ould be appointed to the position.
W'.hen .told ot the. attempts that, liuvu i

to stab hint in the back and injure hit I

Hawaii's Land Problem

that Mr. Mutchins fonnd to M of iu 1

poJiry of the present local ailmiuistra

is causing atui h apprehension in Wash i
iunlou, particularly in the unices o!'
the i'wil aduiiuistrutiou. There, Mr. 1
lliit-iiins aya he foliiul, the Name view
(if the matter is tiksu iik that ex t
pressed by The Advertiser, namely
that, as the mutter has been alloe I
lu drag along so long without 'any at '
U-uipt being made to settle it, it in 1
uuw essential that nothing be dune j
that would prevent the present rat toon

oughly familiar with the situation here,
was able to supply his, interlocutors
with valuable information, ami there
is no. doubt but that representations
will be made that will present the loss

Prohibition Certain
Regarding prohibition for Hawaii, '
Mr. Hutchius said last night that thro '
is absolutely no ilMibt but that the bill
will pasa congress and become law.
There is no strong opposition, and lie
sajvs that when the matter is once tak ;
en op, it will not take two days to i
r Ticlude it. " I
As regards the clause referring the
fpiestiou to a plebiscite not earlier
than six months after the end of tin) j
was, Mr. Hutchius is not at nil appro
hensive that that can afford any eu
courageinent to the liquor interests. .
biue Hawaii has prohibition, he says,
it will never go hack to booe.
This has been the experience iu Tot
to Rico, he adds. I'orto Rico Has giv
en prohibition by federal enactment
with a clause providing for a plebis
cite similar to that provided for in'
the Hawaii prohibition bill. Hut not

"We are better fixed on substitutes
it ia true, than any place on the main
land at the present time," said Mr.
Child, in answer to, queries about sweet
potato bread and other kinds of foods
in use here that do not come under the
fifty-fifty plan of cereal substitutions.
He insisted, however, that no relaxa
tion in the stringent rule is advisable
at the present time. He declared that
the use of noi which has been adulter
ated with flour, on account of the high
price of poi, will have to be discon
tinued. He said that poi in the future
will be all-taro poi.
" We are going to enforce the law,
ami if von think you can do anything
contrary to the law and get by with it,
you are mistaken," said Mr. Child.
"If anybody in your restaurant raises
a howl because of your food menu, you
just come and tell me about him. I
have menus of douling with people of

At the suggestion of the food admin
istration the Chinese, Japanese and

Jt was not only sn evening of fare

of entertainments and of surprises for
the guests. There were two. surprises
in which all twenty one of theig parti

from Miss Beatrice Castle from the

Hawaiians Complain wFifiytJFirty
Rule of Food Administration
Works Hardship On Them
A (reefing nt the fish market res
terdaV morning which was designed to
I thresh out the matter of mullet .priees
and the hoi riling charged to the pond
I men, widened into a general clearing
house for grievances of Hawaiians
Sgninst the food administration, which
broke out in riotous language from a
big gathering of the natives.
Loud voices broke into the speech
risking alioiit fish to inquire why it ia
that Hawaiians are obliged by the food
administration to purchase en tha
half-and-half Iwsls when they are buy-
Ling flour with which to thicken poi.
rue cereal substitute which tb fifty
fifty rule requires them to purchase
along with flour are of no nse to the
Hawaiian in their manner of cooking,
and this was the bnsis of strenuous pro
tests during the fish meeting.
In the thick of the lood murmur
whiell Brose. Khen Low of the Vigi
lance Corps took the soap box and as
ured the Hawaiians that it ir hi in
tention to see that the food administra
tor's ruling be amended in order that
they may receive relief in what
amounts to a hardship on the part of
many Hawaiians.
Purpose Defeated
Mr. Low conceded that the spirit of
the food administration's rale i car
ried out when the Hawaiian poi ia
thickened with floor, thns making a
staple of consumption which' is lews
than fifty percent white flour, ,the
program of national cereal requires.
But at the same time, he said, it forces
the native to purchase something they
have no use for. He believed that the
purpose of the food ndministratioB ia
really defeated, in this case, because
of the waste. ;
"It. is now necessary for, tha .Ha-
lijnns to add a large percentage of
flour to the poi in order to make it
more nourishing, in the absence of
av-ib'de nourishment of other ktnda,"
said Mayor Fern, w ho waa also present
n the meetinif. "This has been call
ed to any attention many times. a a
hardship and I believe that the Hawaii;
ss are entitle,) to some redress from
Washington." ,
The Governor w:is present at the
meeting and listened attentively to all
of. the Hawniinn speech making, al
though he did not unbend to an. ur
gent request for a speech from himself.
Fern and Low Argue
Previous to the speeches which were
made for the information of the Ha
waiian. Mayor Fern and Mr. Low en-rr-i.-p,)
j., ei. tn nbo"t the mullet aitu
ation. which is described as serious by
the fish men. Mayor Fern' conten
tion 1 that the retail price of twenty
rent for mullet ia unjust . to .the- fish
men and that tber are to some degree
warranted in withholding the usual
supply of mullet until their demands
are mst. He contended that the prin
oinal thina is to pet the fish to the mar
ket and if the increase of five cents
per nound will do this the public will
gladly pay it rather than ga without,
nd at h' same time the mission of
the authorities to protect them from
errstic and exorbitant price is filled.
Mr Low contended, however, that
he stnnd of the pond men is nothing
but an attempted hold-up and an il
legal .boarding of food supplies which
is classed as criminal under the rulings
of the fond administration.
A Bad Precedent i
"If we accede to their demands and
place the price five cents higher, what
assurance have we even then that fish
n ill come into the market in quanti
ties!" he demanded of the mayor.
"There ia nothing to prevent these
men from -arbitrarily fixing their own
price under pain of ao mullet in the
market, and that is something that we
a ii u o t afford to set a precedent in and
a thing that is not permitted in tho
case of any other food product."
Mr. Low promisee thut the strong
arm of the law will goon bo exerted on
the mullet pond men to force them to
bring their ash to the market in a,e
ipiate quantities ami at the price that
has been stipulated in the program of
the food administration.
