Wasn't Even Guest of Honor At
His Own Wake Nothing
Spectacular About His End
When Death Came There Wasn't
Much Left of the Corpse But
a Bad Smell and a Hiccup i
The least spectnculr event in the
career of John Barleycorn iu Hoio
lulu was his death last night.
John hail made spectacle of him
nolf- on a good many occasion, a n't
generally he wan ble to tir up a pret
It fair commotion without half trying.
But when it came to dying, John could
n't show any flan. Ha didn't go out
in blaze of (tlory; he jut fir.x'ed
like, wet tire cracker. He wasn't
even; flic gnet of honor at hi own
That may sound peculiar, but in the
mu in it'ii a fai't. John wa hardly
present at the nbeequie. The faini
liar odor of hi spirit clung about the
plnrra where the funeral m being
helil, bnt that wan about all.
DM John may have been a ilpvil of
a fallow while he wa alive, but he
did 't show to murk advantage in his
final moment. He juat curled up and
died, that' nil, and there waa about
at much fun made over him in his
last moments a if he bad been a yel
low clou with the mange. The old boy
wai 'too weak before ke breathed his
lastjBven to leave a bad taste in the
mouth or cook Uf n hunch of headnches
for hi morning for hi devoteeH to
reniWuber him by.
A tjfw Beery loan

friewds on hand to shed a beery tear
at Qxi passing, but even they couldn't
work, up any excitement over it. It
wm funeral without the baked meats,
a wake without the uaual concomitantH.
14 other words, while there were
tbi' on band who would have been
glat to send the old boy on his way
on W flood of libation, there wasn 't
anything to libate with, except a lit
tie Jjeer that was hard to come at.
The ;mouriiern started in mourning go
early-in the game that by the time the
final" moments came the source of
mourning was nearly all gone.
And no, instead of laat night lieing
the wild and woolly time that had been
predicted, it proved to be nothing but
sordid, sullen evening with nothing
te lay the duat but water.
Bold Out Early
Honolulu waa practically "dry" at
1 six o'clock lost aighjt, as, far as the
Vie of liquor on thie ialand is con
eernod. With the exception of Love
joy ft Co., all of the wholesale houses
were completely sold out at four o'clock
and with the exception of draught beer,
every saloon in the city had disposed
of ita stocks by eight o'clock. No
' harde-tuff " was left.
Under these conditions, and with the.
laat minute rush of those who wished
to drink a porting farewell to John
Barleycorn, there was a reversal of the
Usual barroom etiquette. Instead of
the, Usual "What will you havef"
-"from the knight of the apron and bung
, starter, it was: " What have you gotf '
'from the customer. Those who started
the, celebration uf the day with Hcotch
- whiskey iu the morning, were satisfied
with liollund gin Inter in the day.
heypit" the, heavy demand oil all of
the saliHin yesterday, there was very
liMle disturbance.
Ttie I'rost Ha loon, Aulu Saloon and
MuuVise Huloon closed their doors at
five, o'clock last night. Lovejoy ft Co.
remained open until rive thirty o'clock.
Th's firm still lias a large iuantity of

night at six o'clock without anv sue
cess. A train which brings these men
up from the Naval Stiitiou was stulled
below Pearl City at four o'clock yes
ter.lav afternoou which delaved them
getting iuto the city al their usual time.
Mane heated arguments, in which the
railroad came in for a generous amount
of "cussing" were held on the curb
outside of the building.
Winery to Cloee
According to Dave Lewis, of Love
joy ft Co., the Kaupukaluu Winery on
Maui will close down at the end of
-this month. The greater part of the
. output of this winery is sold locally
Tne Kaupakama Winery produces an
nually about 7o,00(l gallous of wine.
It elanneit that JIMJ small vineyard

The Honolulu Hrewerv will continue

this island. Shipments will he made
to the other islands, which in turn can
lie re-shiped here.

Nfc C I el Ian Suggests Leaving
Homestead Withdrawals Up
To the President
I'nless legislation OU the land ques
tions of Hawaii ia Initiated and report
ed out at the present session of coo
grese there is little or no likelihood of
any such legislation pejnjing for two
year. This ia the opinion of George
McK. McClellan as he has expressed
it in a letter which' waa received by
that body yesterday. He said that at
the time of hia engagement by the
chamber of commerce there was eon
siderahlc discussion here by some of
the directors of the chamber aa to poi
sible amendments to the land laws of
the Territory.
'In the absence of a ay instructions
from your body, I have made no ef
forts to secure action along that line,
and there has been no committee con
deration of the subject," he writes.
"I have no desire to try to influence
the chamber's poller on land questions
and it is, of course, easier for me to
have the situation drift along with no
attempted action. On the other hand
I do not wish to avoid responsibility,
and I am therefore writiag to eall your
attention to the legislative situation.
May Walt Two Tear
"Briefly, the situation is that unless
Innd legislation is initiated or under
taken at this session of congress, it
will be very difficult to get any ae
tion for a period of two years. The
reasons for this are, that this is the
'Long Session' of the Hiity fifth con
gratis, affording the most opportunity
to get bills reported out with some
chnnce for consideration.
'Bills reported out at this session
retain their place on the calendar for
the short session running from Decem
ber next to March 3, following; but
the short seaaioi will be so taken up
with appropriation bills and war meas
ures that it will be impossible to in
trodiiee a bill in that session, get it re
ported by a committee, and still have
it reached for consideration.
"if the war continues, there will un
doubtedl.v be a ? fecial sessiou railed in
April. 1 9 1 S : bnt if it follows tbe pre
cedent of the special session of 1917.
nothing but war legislation will be
acted on by it.
Offer Suggestion
"Having given considerable thought
to the subject of expiring leases on
cultivated lands in Huwaii, and after
looking over tbe situation here, I have
reached the conclusion that the moat
practicable plan for meeting the situ
ation at the present time would be, not
an attempt to nine ml the laud laws by
taking away the homesteaders' right
of entry, hut insteud. a simple amend
ment authorizing t hi- ('resident during
the war, to withdmw from entry lands
already cultivated tor the production
of foodstuffs. Such action could be
authorized by th following short para
'During the eriixl of the war,
the President is niithorir.ed to
withdraw from homestead entry,
by executive oidcr. any public
lands in the territories of the I'uit
ed States alr.vdi cultivnted for
the production ot foodstuffs.'
"If a brief mil of this character
could be reported nut t the calendar,
it might be possible to have it incor
porated as an uniendmcnt to an appro
priation bill at this or the following
short session.
"Huch an amendment would, iu ef
feet, probably place action in the
hands of the secretary of the interior,
and would uiak it possible for him
to take action, whether he is able to
visit Hawaii this oimnier or not."
Visit Ia Unlikely
la the opinion of Ms McClellan
there is little possibility that iScere
tary Lane w ill - iMt Huwaii during the
coming summer. In reference to this
proposed visit his letter said:
"There has iieen considerable talk
of a visit to H.iwiiii this year by Hec
retary Lane." -lites Mr. McClellan
"but, according to the bett informa

his being nble u go. Mr. i.ane had

The Mataon company attorneys imme
diately took np the matter with Mr.
rtweet of the state department in Wash
ington, .calling attention to the fact
thnt Hawaii wa a territory of the Unit-,
ed Rtatea, although non-contiguous, add
tug that the permit requirement would
create considerable inconvenience, and
asked if the instructions could not be
withdrawn. '
A reply wa received informing the
Company that it was a governmental
measure and r.ould not be withdrawn;
consequeatlv the steamship companies
operating from the coast to Honolulu
do not now aell tickets unless n permit
is produced.

Mr. Drew aaid, however, that the re
quirement wa working oot smoothly

had to do. On 8aturday morning he
personally appeared before the collector

for a permit was wired to Washington
and on Monday was received by the

The questions put were such as "Arc

To Wire McClellan
It was felt that direct infoimation
should be had and the secretary was
instructed to wire Mr. McClellan, who

the government to discourage travel
to Hawaii. This is the telegram wRieb
was sent from Washington to the nan
