exonerated of the charge of criminal
libe), at eleven thirty o'clock last
niuht.br the jnrv in the case after it
had deliberated eiht hoiira. .
This bring! to a. conclusion the
chargei -nude against Trent and R. O.
Afntaeaoa, editor of The Advertiser, tu
connection with one of a aerie of the
so-caUeil. 1 ' Dixie . Doolittle ' ' articles,
which the JCIks lodge, complainants in
thf ;tif, held wan injurious to it ax
an, order. . i .
Interest Wide Spread
., The trial, which has been in prop;
tens for a week, attracted the widest
attention due to the prominence of the
defendant, who ii head of the largest
financial institution, in the Territory
and federal, custodian of property
owned by alien enemies. With B. O.
Mathoson, editor of The Advertiser he
was indicted for libel rn connection
with ope of the series of so-catled
"Wife Doolittle" articles, which the
Elks lodge, complainnnt in the ease,
held was injurious to it as an order.
lTu to three thirty one o'clock yea
terday afternoon when the ease was
at length given to the jury the day
waa devoted to the arguments of op
posing counsel.
OotuUel la Case
The accused financier was represent
ed in the trial by Attorneys John
rathenrt, B. M. Watson and Will Car
den. Attorneys E. C. Peters and
George Davis directed the prose
cution of the case through its opening
stages when a demurrer .to the charge
was flleil and overruled by the conrt.
When the actual trial started Peters
Withdrew from the case, leaving the
burden of the prosecution to be borne
by Attorney Davis alone. Against the
odds he fared Attorney Davis made a
notable fight, directing the case iu
all of its ramifications without aid
from the office of the county atorney.
When Attorney George Davis opened
his argument yesterday morning for the
prosecution he sought fb impress upon
the jury that rhe trial could not be
regarded as a life and death affair.
He eharifrterlMid the , 'charge' hs a If a
tulory misdemeanor, intimating that in
the event the defendant were found
guilty he could be let off with a small
fine. !
iu his opening argument the attorney
for the prosecution reviewed details
of the testimony, going over what had
been said by the various witnesses.
Ia- a part of his argument Attorney
Davis himself said that the accused
finuurier had only been over realous.
"Trent is not a bad man," lit as
serted. "I am satisfied that he ha
a good heart and that he has noble
traits. H waa merely over zealous. "
Attacks Defendant
Branching oat from this point of view
he attacked the defendant sharply fof
' lt had been snid iu the "Dixie Doo
little" articlo of January 24. He ask
ed why Trent had not -written direct
ly to the officers of the lodge over" his
own signature instead of having pub
1 1 shed the article over a pen name.
He klso said the defendant might have
taken up the question of liquor sales
U the Elks club with the minority of
members whoso effort to end liquor
sales in the club had been defeated.
AH through, bis argument the attor
nay for the prosecution dwelt upon the
definitions ot, terms used in the ar
tide. Chief among these were "John
Barleycorn,' "hioor.e joint". and
"joint". Thp attorney turned his guns
enidy. on the use by the defendant of
a pen name, declaring that an uno'iv
in on s communication was a deadly
weapon. . .
Wats RspllM
Attorney E. M. Watson, represent
ing the defendant, followed Attorney
Davis asd made reply to the things
he charged. He said, that the "Dixie
Doolittle" article did not carry the
meaning that the prosecution had
sought to show it held. He held that
the defense had proven the truth of
all the assertions contained in the ar
ticle and had shown that it was fully
justified by conditions in the common
ity at the time it was written. He
inserted that the prosecution had en
deavored to read into the inr-aning of
the article some bidden devilish menu
injs watch it iiit not contain.
Particular stress was laid by Attor
noy Watson on his reply to charges
concerning the statement of the arti
cle, whirh said the lodge was "turning
ont. a. few drunkards every year."
Claims Charges True
i Attorney Watson asserted that this
was literally true, holding that any
dace where liquor was served necessar
ily turned out some "drunkurds every
year." Emphasi.ing this point he refer
red to tho historic, experiment of Bish
op Potter in New York about ten years
rgo when the Episcopal churchman had
S'liiMit to provide a " workingrueu 's
rlub" where thev could obtain pure
Jimior at reasonable prices. He point
e.l to the fmt 'that Ibis experiment
hail to be abandoned after a year.
Pup after another he took up the
I'liurge contained in the article, show
iitg that all tluit liid been snid wus
true,. He referred to the statement
of the aitii-lu which said "loyal young
suit' -would hesitate Ion if before ioininir
sm b. as order" and contended this had
been proved bv the testimony of .1. A.
Itnlch ,.f I Ii Muliltl T leuhuiie ( Vni
ti'inv who had id lie had refuse, I to
ioiu tin- Hllis when asked because Ii
ipioi was sold iu the (lib rooms.
Attorney Davis had objected to testi
mony along this line from Gen. J. H.
Sorter, holding that General Soaer wits
his seventy-odd years could hot be ti-
jg,rdraV JqynJ f young M".- A
1 tornev Watson haM that to.lk Irl
f I properly be held to be a " young man'
iioago as juoyai -
Attorney Wntaoi snld that the loyal
ty of the lodge had- in ao wy been
brought Info question, saying he be
lieved within its membership were to
be found some of the most loyal end
rktr1otie. citir.cns in the community.
The attorney replied to the testimony
that had boe"n givn concerning patrio
tic nets of the Elks lodge and ike
dnnetinns of the lodire to the Bed Cross.
He held that the lodge rn this had done
little more than its dutv, asving that
every loysj and patriotic citizen . had
made sacrifices to nid the Nation In the
present" crisis. The lodge had done
only what all good citizens end loyal
organizations had done, he snid.
Attorney Watson pointed to the fart
that Individnnl members of the Elks
1n"e tbemse'ves did not regard wht
had ben written ns intiirions or defa
matory. Tn this connection he referred
to the testimony of P. H. W. Korto-
and plaf Sorenson, Elks, who hnd sap
thev did not regard what had been
written as libelous. . ,
Next he took up the nolnt nrton whiti

Attorney John Cnthc:irt entered te
fray in the nfternoon, reviewing flrkt
the specific charges co ifiiioel in the
indictment. He denied 1 1. -it the '" Dixie
Doolittle" articles could be retro Hod
as libelous, saying the defendant had
pK.ved the truth of all t'ie assertions
he hail made and had sii'.wn thetr pubt
licntion had been entirl juMiO(?d by
the circumstances. .
Whon Trent wrote the article, he satfl,
Honolulu had not realized the serioiu"
ncss of the war. With leadir-; institnr
tions in the bands of (lermnn citi7ees
events here were taking a cmirso that
might have led to disaOei i.nd Treitt,
awake to the situation, had acted the;
part of a patriot in bringing sharply
to the notice of the c-.immui 'ty the
existing condition.
Othor Points ,
Concerning the intimation of the
article that "our army and navv of
ficers must have a place to drink ", he
pointed out that! this inference could
not have been- avoided when it wti
learMrl' Hat' tine light to retain KeAT

officer He emphasized the point At
torney . Wtatsnu had made, saying that
any reasonable . man knew that any
place in the world where liquor was
served to a number of individuals nec
essarily turned out a "few drunkards
every year". A certain proportion of
any number of men who drank liquor,
wherever it might be, would fall vic
tims to, it, he said.
An elaborate table wns presented by
Attorney Catbcart showing that after
the sale of liquor to soldiers had been
stopped by law, the sales in the Elks
club has .jumped measurably. The fol
lowing table which the attorney read
shows receipts from liquor sales in the
Elks club by months before the law

Lauds Paper
In his closing address Attorney Davis
for the prosecution took occasion to
pay a tribute to the fair and exact
manner in which news matter usually
is presented in The Advertiser. The
attorney dwell 'on the fact that the
copy of the "Dixie Doolittle" adver
tisement' had been delivered by the
defendant in person to the foreman of
the composing room of the paper in
the night time.
Ho ngain read over the definitions of
the terms used in the article and then
injected a patriotic note into his ut
terance, referring to the members of the
kilks lodge who are wearing their
country's uniform and are fighting for
the Nation.

tween the erstwhile editor and County
Agent Case a coolness arose, the agent's
ideas of news and those of the editor
not always coinciding. This resulted
in a charge bv Case that Boothby was
"always crabbing", and a retort now
by Boothby that Case "Is puffed up
by a little brief authority and thinks
everyone ought to kowtow to him."

' W.
eriences of the first draft) it iTesU
mated that Class I will comprise a list
of physically acceptable men la number
close to. ens million enough for Any
all, in .present prospect.
Promlie Announced t , .
! Wuethse this Kuess is Jjistitled in
practic r lint, it .an be announced
now as the jsjlicv and belief of this of
flee that, in all probability it will be
possible to All our military needs with
out ever invading nnv class more de
(erred than Class 1; and this is the
promise, the standard, und the goal,
here, for the first tune announced, to
ward which every administrative effort
of this Office Will bo directed.
"It is admitted thut the fulfillment
of, this hope will require further legis
lation and the requirements of the war
may Impose' firobloms that will demand
much more -.profound adjustments;
but ax a rough measure of protection it
is not too much to sny that the present
classification scheme offers possibilities
that have never been attained by any
other nation 1 the history of war.
Alternative Suggestions
" I'resunilag that the military needs
of the Nation, should require more men
than those-, who, withiu tbo'Wf suit
draftabls. ages, and -under the present
rules, would; be in Class I. the problem
would instantly present itself whether
it were better to iuvade the deferred
classes or to Add another class of young
er men. f . i.W .
"Between .the two alternatives there
can be little hesitation. Against the
proposition to add the class of men who
have reached twenty one since ln.t reg
istration there ran be urged but. a single
objection, that among the younger men
will be found those who are just com
oleting their education and, as has al
endy been foreefully urged, that wherp
Vie education is technical (medical,
chemical. :ar . 'engineering K the eonitJpi
tiotref th frjuntng of rnen, so skilieif
is .necessary,, top war purnpnes. As ito
vich . technical students the arguments
are overwhelming and they have pre
vailed, r
"The ineluaiou of the clans of those
nrriyiug. at the age of twenty one
should add yearly at least 700,000 mi
deferred uun to the available class,
-ind with such an addition there is ccr
taiuly no Immediate necossity of going
beyoud Class 'f 'In future drafts. This
s a eonsnmniation most devoutly to be
desired. It removes front consideration
he most troublesome problems of the
I raft and places us in a most enviable
position among belligerent nations.
"A paragraph will serve to dispose
of the question whether in like manner
'hose passing the age of thirty should
de removed from liability. Iu the firit
place such men are, physically sud as
a class, the most perfectly fitted for
military service. Practically those wh
at thut age have not yet integrated
themselves with tho- economic or domes
tie life of the Nation to such a sub
stantiul extent as to dictate their seg
relation in u class more deferred tlosk
lAs 1 are entitled to no 'consjderat ion
Liu this regard. The classification mi
tein automatically tlefers meritorious
ca.ses, ami the rest ought not to be ic
moved from liability."
Announcement is made by the local
food administration that present luuita
turns on sugar purchases may soon be
relaxed und a qimutlty of twenty five
instead of five pounds bo fixed. At the
uimc time consumers will be urged to
keep down, consumption to ninety per
cent. of the prewnr figures. "
While it is true there ntijl exists a
shortage of sugar on. the maliilaud and
riyid economy must needs Ik' 'practised
here it is a safe prophesy that before
the summer is over tbe food admiuis
tiutiou will be urgin! iu it did Inst year,
an increased uav of sugar iu the making
af iireserves, jellies and iuuis to ua
fruit that must otherwise go to wnste.
It would appear there is abundant
logic for such order when it shall come.

Iu addition to this there is evi-rv
rospect of our having M large stock of
