As a poet Mr. Ayres achieved fame
not only locally but his verses found
praise in many lands, and a few years
ago a large collection of hi. delightful
poem was gathered and issued in book
form under the title of "Trade Wind
Lyrics." His passion for flowerf found
an outlet in many beantiful verses.
His poems dealt almost exclusively
with bits of life in Hawaii and many
were devoted to the Hawaiian people.
Another passion was that of angling,
bis specialty being to fish in tho toral
shallow. Close to too snore, out quite

He vim also a devotee of walking
nnd took long hikes, and during his
residence here walked over and around
most of the islands. We was in addi
tion a competition heel and toe walker
and was the father of the Kalak.ua
avenue walking competitions, which
ae now held annually. He was a strict
heel and toe wslker and even thopgh
handicapped by a difference of many
year in favor of contestants, he walk

sphere of Hawaii nei and of almost
every phnse of life here,
He was born in England hut came
to America when a Ind and. but for
one visit home, spent much of his Me
awsv from Albion, in Hawaii.
Mr. Ayres belonged to the "old
crowd" of Honolulu's newspapermen,
many of his writing associates of the
enrly days having preceded him to tha
Great Beyond by many years.

Richard H. Trent, Hawaiian repre
sentative of A, Mitchell Palmar, na
tionnl custodian of enemy property,
yesterday served notice on Ilackfeld
k Co. ' that that corporation must
either sell, or tauae to ba aold, all of
ita alien enemy stock ' to bona fide
American, or go out of business. Act
ing upon thi. advice, a meeting of
the directors of Ilackfeld k Co. was
called for Fiiday at which the matter
will ba discussed; nnd it wa. decided
to call a meeting of the stockholders
to be held on Friday, July 11), at
which a fiuiil decision will be reached,
Ilespite the claims of certain par
tics that a majority of the stock of
Hackfeld k Co. nas in the hand of
American citi.en (something like "3,
000 out of 40,IK)0 shares), othcial In
vestiiiBtion )iows, according to the
custodian, that the majority of the
stock is still in the bunds of nlien
enemies. The fuels were obtaiued by
the Knglish government and transmit
ted to Wushington, together with tho
ropiest that the Ilackfeld business be
taken in hand. In this connect ion it
Mill be remembered that the Hackfeld
business ha been under a British ban
fur more tliau two years, but has not
i oiue in for American disfavor on tic
count of the rlutm persistently put for
ward thut a majority of (he stock
was cither owned by or under the con
I nil of American citirens.

is something like 2,0M),0(io, which i ;
regarded in most circles as a co:i
