al of the legislature at the special ses
sion that ia now in process ia the bill
designed to establish an internment
camp in th Territory under the direc
tioii vf High Sheriff Jarrett. Of parti

bill which make it applicable to canes
of. women as well aa men. Hei.r.-t.ntu.

of , tho oommittee of ton appointed to
devise legislation along its lines,
The bill provide that alien enemies
seditious person shall be confined
the internment camp and goes on to
define what an. alien enemy ia and
what "seditious person" in the terms
of tbe bill Is.
Defllies Sedition
"A seditious persou," the bill says.
"ahull bo deemed, to iuelude any per,
son who shall be guilty of seditious ut
terances or conduct, disrespect to the
Flag, emblem or ensign of -the United
btate7"or contemptuous, odious, or
sportive references to the military or
naval forces of the United Htates with
intfnt to hamper, belittle or impede
thoir work or give aid aud comfort

Tlc circuit court is to have juris-
diction to try and determine all cases
of sedition under the act, and may pro
ceed as In criminal cases. The bill
provides that besides ordering a'persou
adjudged guilty of sedition into the in
ternment camp, a fan ot not more than
15000 may be imposed.
It is proposed as far -as possible to
make the camp self supporting.

Government Issues 0rde'Taking

Tho coinmnndeering of the iupplice
of plntinym. iridium and palladium of
the refim rs and large jewelry houaee by
the government for war purpoaea of tbo
I'nitfsV'Htates and her alliea will bavo
bat tittle effect upon the jewelry btnl
ue of Honolulu, aay the loval jewel

eolt to obtain platinum from the Htates,
becauao of restriction ulaced an U.

estimates. t .0-
There is practically no iridium la tbo
city except in compound with platinum,
aa it is the alloy used to harden plati
num for practical wear. Most of tha
jewelers expressed the belief that there
was no palladium in Honolulu. '
This commandeering, of raw plati
num will not mean thnt eople will have
ti turn in their platinum jeNrelry or
that jewelry stores will have to cease
selling it. The government ha desired
to get 250U ounces of tbe metal, for
scientific purposes. The jeweler asso.
ciution throughout the t'nited States
aocceedeil in getting 120O ounce foi
,tho tiovernment. By aeisung the sup
plies of the metal in possession pi re
finer and large .jewelers tbo remain
ing 1.100 ounces will probably be made
"P- ,- . ' '
Of the supply of platinum In Honolu
lu one piece worth about three hna
dm! dollars is at present tied uprln the
ilelini postoftiee case. Tbe platianm
came to Honolulu for H. F. Wiehman

by Harry Melini, a pogtolfice employe,
bringing l)i robbery to liirht.
