COIMM' K produt ers of the Cnited States are
indignant at the treatment which they re
centlv receiveil at ti e hands of the war industries
board and the st.u v ..f the cause of their dissatis
faction is of interest to hundreds of Islanders who
are interested in the copper industry through their
holdings in copper company shares, chiefly F.ngels
Copper ( onipauv vvlu.h is now a considerable pro
dueer and is a Honolulu concern though its prop
erty is in California The reported facts are glean
ed from the I'.oston News Unrcatt
Copper prodtu crs 1 1 . on all over the Cnited
States were asked to -o to W ashington to confer
with the war industries board ' relative to fix
ing the price of copper, the period for which a
price had been lived being about to expire. In
these days the representatives of the large copper
producing compares ,uc straining every nerve
and muscle to keep the output from the mines and
smelter to the maximum so that this war essen

tial may not tail the l;ov eminent in us ueiuauu

red metal enters j
The copper producers sent their heads or other
representatives to ashington. The old price was i
one that had been voluntarily offered by them and
accepted bv the government and was lower than
the market price when it was offered. They did
not reduce wages i oinmcnsurately. most of the
companies having formerly based wages on price
per pound much as the sugar bonus is figured in
then . osts are higher and the ex-j
is . m The producers believed this;
into consideration in the fixing of
the new price t
After these busy men of affairs had met and con
ferred, while thev were discussing the price that
-hotild be proposed thev w ere mlnrmeu that a
price had been fixed for a period' of seventy five
davs before thev had reached Washington in re
; ponse to invitation The price is twenty-three
and a half cents, the same as before, but this did
not so irritate the copper men so much as the lack
of courtesy that had been shown them. F.v identic
some one had blundered.

Airplane Silencer
w .
is invention
of Honolulu Man
Contrivance May Enable Ameri
can Aviators To Invade Ger
many and Drop Bombs on
Palace of William the Butcher
In the silence of night and with
the heavens appearing as serene as
ever to the German armies interven
ing between the Allied fronts and (tpr '
many, a Honolulan may yet be respon
ible for thp silent attack of n fleet
of airplanes which may be made upon
Heilin and the Kaiser's palnee sub !
,)(( ted to bombs "made in America."!
W. H. Hunter, formerly an engineer
of the Hawaiian Kleetrle Company, of'
! Honolulu, is reported from the ' ' front ' '
: as the inventor of a system to silence
the eihaust of the airplane.
I The drone of the engine and the
teirilir lipping noise produced by the
I eihaust have so far made the nir
! plane's presence easily known to the
' enemy, and until both are completely
silenced air raids far within an ene
inv country can not easily- be accoin
A letter which has just been re
j ceived by The Advertiser ''from n
II oiiotulan, ' ' says that ''a Honolulu
man has invented an instrument to
i silence JftV afciaust of an airplane."
It i( nndprstftod that this invention
is in thp bane)', of a certain gov era
nient, Vili" wbioh one is not mentioned,
and) niay"' Vbi the process of perfec
tioD byy British or the American
govern inVlitn.
"If if proVoa a success it will be
a gTeat benefit to tin1 Allies," says
the writer.
It is in the limit of possibilities
that with the exhaust silenced and
the dione of the engine lessened, an
Allied airplane may leave the Allied
lines in Kranee, fly over the Iliudeii
burg foices, over the Rhine, and then,
poised over Berlin, drop enplosives
upon the military depots there. If
this feat is eventually made public,
a Honolulu man may be given the
credit fur making such a raid possi
nother Honolulu man is said to be
responsible for the suggestion of the
use of wire nets to trap submarines,
a means which has kept the Knglish
channel free from these murderous sea
snipers of the Huns, and permitted the
transports to shuttle back Mid forth
between F.nglnnd and France with their
millions of soldier passengers with few
fatalities. After years of waiting and much

Former Members of Orflanized
, Militia Turn Outjfchrj Prt)friis4 ,
I To Aid In New Project
Men Under and Over Draft Age
Are Wanted At Least 1700
Will Be Drawn
Initial steps taken last night at the
armory to form a "Home (Iuard " regi
ment around the skeleton of the old
Hawaiian National (Iuard organisation,
brought out several members of the
"old guard", men who were officers
years ago but who have beyn on the
retired, unnssigned or reserve lists, all
of whom signified their desire to nid in
the development of the proposed rpgi
Ten men filled out the necessary
blanks for entry into the new organiza
tion and by the end of the week thev
will be given a physical examination.
I Several vtheoa who were present at the
i meeting, which was presided over by
! Col. Will Wayne, head of the guard,
I announce. I they would enlist nt once,
iiin.l they vvill iie present again tonight
I at half past seven o'clock when active
I recruiting commences.
It was announced to the meeting of
twentv men that those who are quali
I lied lo enter the regiment, which may
be known as the Hfth Regiment, Na
tional Cnnid of Hawaii, will be men
between the nges of eighteen and twen
ty one and thirty one and forty live
The enlistment period will be for
three years, the same as with the regi
ments just federalized. Kxcept in the
else of reserve, retired and unnsHigned
officers, all who enter the new service
will be reuuired to enlist. Many who
I show qualifications will be given op
I portunity, as their superiors designate,
I to occupy positions as officers.
There lire still sufficient men left from
the old regiment in the engineer and
I sii-nnl corns comnanies. which were not
called into service, to permit the im
mediate enlargement of the regiment,
bv assigning all the first comers to
these oigHiiizatiotiK. Inasmuch as there
im. no machine gnus left with the
guanl. a machine gun company
may not be organized just now. It
is possible that later on when the en
gineer and signal corps companies reach
their minimum strength these may be
transferred to the line, so that numeri
cally designated companies may be or
"Btiiied. Equipment Arallable
Out of the total men of the regi
ment, at least 17IHI will be recruited
from the Island of Oaliu. Four com
panics may be organized in Hilo and
two each on Maui and Kauai.
Colonel Wayne said last night that
although the guard has no personal
equipment on hand nt present, the army
authorities have promised uniforms and
rifles and other requirements as fait
as they are needed, but that no surplus
equipment will be accumulated.
The colonel also said it is expected
a large number of recruits will be gain
ed from Classes It. 4 and fi of the selec
tive diaft. inasmuch as they will gain
experience in the "Home (iuard " in tin-
iticipatiou of an eventual call
enliial call by draft
was stated that .is
the guard were ra
the selective draft
men of the draft, of
can be members nf
to the Odors. It
many members of
quired to answer
si ion nn 1 1 c. the
these low classes
Hie Home Cuard.
The colonel also a u ii ou need that while
there may' be a number of officers ap
pointed, these positions will be tenta
tive, and subject to the examinations
under the territorial militia organiza
tion, but later on to the examinations
of the regular army. No man who does
not show capacity for drilling men can
i. 'tain his position as an otlicer.
Recruiting Starts Tonight
Heginning tonight, Major J. M . Ca
milla, the new assistant adjutant gener
al of the national gonid, and Lieut.
Louis Medeiros, recruiting otlicer, will be
pieseiit wilh clerks in the officers' room
i,l the armory, to take the applications
of recruits and begin the serious work
of building up an entire new regiment.
They will also be on hand each night
cx.ept Sntuidiiy. and on Sunday morn
i i:g from nine to t w el v c.
Among the old time officers present
at last night's meeting were Captain
