Under Imputation of Negli

?.Tbe Hilo draft board was acting up
en instructions from Cspt. H. O. Field,
elective draft officer when it sent all
Class, 1 me to Honolulu that could be
rounded up in the course of two days,
according to the Hilo Tribune. This
appears to determine the rponsibil
ity for the sending of a lot of men to
Honolulu who worn unprovided with
proper induction pspcrs.
There is also a difference of opinion
' ever the whole subject of the men or-
ataed from Hawaii, between Maj. Char
ts B. Cooper, Medical Reserve Corps,
w"ho has been in charge of the medical
examinations of draftees st the mobil
isation ramp, and Captain Field, ar.d
Major Cooper has so informed the Hilo
Thirteen Filipinos and Hawaiinns
who were sent here on Saturday by
the Hilo board and absolutely without
draft registration identification, except
a steamer tag, were cared for by the
tabor bureau of the planters' associa
tion on Saturday and may be sent
back to the island of Hawaii oft Wed
nesday to be returned to their former
places of occupation, unless they ac
cept employment that may be found
for them here. It is also possible that
before Wednesday induction papers
' pay be received from Hilo to apply to
some of the men.
Field Was Positive
'"The distinct instructions from Cap
taia Field as received in a wireless on
July 2A were that all men of Class 1
mast be sent to Honolulu," says the
Tribune. "The captain instructed the
draft board (verbally) to eall every
aaaa Who had been classified in Class
I,v whether in the 'qualified' or defer-
red divisions. ,
"The instructions were plain and
. the board obeyed them. The demand
for 493 men was abaolute and that num
ber absolutely would take every man
in Class 1, who could be located in the
short time available. ' '
Major Cooper has taken issue with
the instructions of Captain Field, and
. has folly exonerated the East Hswaii
Draft Board Which followed the posi
tive instructions of Captain Field, ac
cording to the Tribune of August 2, to
send any man who was in Class 1,
whether or not his height and weight
were correct, or his physical examina
tion favorable.
"The board has no intention of sit
ting still nnder any imputation of neg
ligence," says the Tribune. "It aent

original order and it stands reaffirmed
in direct contradiction of two wireless
messages dated Jul.vL'rt and 27 from
Capt. H. Gooding Field, which speei-
, Jleally stated that all men of Class 1.
irrespective of deferred ratings, should
be dispatched to Honolulu.
Hp Misinterpretation Possible
.'These instructions Captain Field re
iterated in person when here last Sun
day. The local board obeyed them and
. then had the humiliation of learning
that twenty five percent of the men sent
to Honolulu had been rejected.
"Quite naturally the board felt much
relieved to be informed that it was not
'held responsible for confusion that or
iginated elsewhere, arid yesterday it!
went about its duties under the new
"As instructed by Major Cooer the
physicians of the board examined phy
feirallv all the men who are to lenve
today. Before even seventy five men
could be obtained, many were rejected
for obvious causes.
"Weight worried the draft officials
most, for while the height of inaiure
men remained the same us in IIH7, some
of their weights had either increased or
decreased. The minimum weight was
set at 108 pound by ('apt II flooding I
field in his wireless of. Wednesday
afternoon to the local board. I.a'k of
time made it impossible to weigh the
men again but in rases where there was
.visibly a large margin over the stand
.' ard weight, as recorded at the time of
registration, the men were included in
the contingent.
"At eleven o'clock a large number
. of men hud been summarily rejected by
the local board as not attaining the
standard now required. These men,
however, were all in the deferred sec-
tanna of Class 1 and there they will
remain until something definite is
learned from Honolulu as te their dis
posal. "At one time In the forenoon it
looked aa though, there would not be
forty men to scud, so numerous wore
rejections for underweight.
"However, this morning there will
depart seventy-five men, exhausting
every available selective Class 1. Mure

deferred classes segregated by the
(.Medical Advisory Board which visited
Hilo a few months ago and at that
time physically examined ull Class 1
"From Honolulu yesterday came n
communication by mail from Captain
Field stating merely that sixty four men

Bala Confirmed
The confirmation of the sale came
from Sen Francisco on Saturday, in
which it was stated that the consider

to the Poulsen owners of 4V4 percent
Liberty Bonds. In additioa to securing
art the plants the government secures
the right to use the Poulsea patents on
all government wireless stations as well
as vessels of the navy and ships of the
Emergency Fleet Corporation.
As an additional consideration the

10,0O0,0O0 in contracts from the

Whether the globe was used as one
of a series of buoys for a fish net, or
for buoying up n parcel of opium

or just what the globe is ordinarily
used for, is not known to any persons
who have seen it. Kinhermeu in the
islands do not use glass globes for
floating nets, although they are used
along the Parific Coast.
That it has anything to do with
enemy activities is scouted as improb
able. The fact remains, however, that
several of these globes have drifted
ashore on Kauai and this one was
found alone on this island. Search
was made along the shore for some dis

glolies of this type may be counected

difficulty was experienced in making

The term "threatened strikes" is the

where workers are actually on strike,

J it is reached. This is one of the most
successful features of the board 's work.
Hut industrial troubles seem to be mul
I ti plying so rapidly that the tasks ahead
I loom very large.
I Thus far the war labor board has
' proceeded with marked unanimity,
which is another noteworthy feature.
Although its representatives are even
ly divided betweeneapital and labor,
they have voted unanimously on, al!
decisions to date. The only inability
to agrr-e was UKn the making public
of reports by one of its sulwoinmittees
Accordingly the recent nnnouncemen
hy President Wilson that "ten disin
terested persons suitable to act as um
pire when drawn by lot ' ' had been so-'
lected was of significance only as car
rying out original .provisions agreed
upon when the war labor board was or
ganized. The choice of these men is
precautionary against labor disputes
upon which the war labor board can
not unanimously agree. i
Rapid Changes Indicated I
However, . the board has recently
been making decisions that indicate
rapid changes in tho labor situation, as
well as the exercise of very important
authority. For example there was the
board's decision, readjusting the exist
ing wage schedules in eight plants, em
ploying 3,000 men at Waynesboro,
1'ennsylvania, where it fixed a mrhimuni
" hou'. ",V
.)al( ny -laaa of workers, ineludin
'.., i.i... i
common laborers.
I "In the Waynesboro case" to quote
the announcement made through the
official committee on public informa
tion," the award pf the board gives
' many of the workers wage increases
greatly in excess of their demands to
gain which they recently went on strike.
For instancVe, the minimum rate is fixed
at forty cents per ,nour, while the mini
I mum rate demanded was thirty, cents
! per hour. Until now common laborers
at Waynesboro havft been receiving as
little as twonty two cents per hour.
The increase to the lowest paid men,
therefore, will be eighty-one percent,
i Skilled workers were awarded the in
creases they demanded."
' The war labor board thus not only
appears committed to increases of
wages, well up to the standard indi
cated in the Waynesboro ease, but it
is rommtting itseif to "the basic eight
hour day." This action was justified
in a recent iiecisioa anecting a roni.ro
. v..rv i.t ween the Wnrthinirton J'umn
' -l ,' Machinerv Company and its em-
Mll"nery V0",.p",?y ? ' : r
pioyea -in a piani ai cam i.anmnuge,
j Massachusetts, ami in a plant at Buf
fai jsw York. The board predicated ,
' ' I
,fg action lor the hasie nay --upon a
statement of the secretary of the navy
that a governmental necessity existed
in the plants and that the navy depart
ment favored the installation of the 1
lanir eight hour day in all plants en
gaged on navy work."
Strikes Are Frequent
A few weeks ago one of the larger
fields of activity for the war labor
board was the adjustment of labor con
troversies on electric trolley roads.
There lins been some falling off now
in these ruses, due, perhaps, to the
many adjustments made. But employes
other brunches of industry seem
to have their cases aired before
the board. Strikes or threatened strikes
are occurring frequently in many quar
ters ami. often, ou government work.
This is particularly notable in southern
New Knglund, particularly at Bridge
port, Connecticut, which is a center for
the manufacture of arms and ammuni
tion. Of like import was the actual
strike a few days ago in the Smith &!
Wesson pistol factory at Hpriugfleld, I
The war labor board is working on
the Bridgeport case and conducting
hearings. Its decision there is likely
to have far reaching importance to
many thousand of munitions workers I
in various eastern Btates. But it is
to be borne in mind that apparently
the war labor board is identifying it
self with a very general readjustment
of wages throughout the country and
with the placing of laborers, skilled
ami unskilled, in thousands of .vsrious
branches of industry, upon a war foot
ing. The board is undoubtedly impelled
to this course by the existing evidences
of unrest, which it is seeking to quell
for the general welfare and also to give
the workers suflicient means to meet
the higher costs of life's necessities.

Peter Jackson Never Wined Out

u ic ucicdi Mumimsicicii
By Bill Farnan
Nearly every boxer of note in the
history of puglilism has been menaced
by at least one rival who held the
whip hand. Although Peter x Jackson
had a wonderfully successful career
in the ring, yet there was one man he
never succeeded in defeating, and that
was Bill Farnan, Melborune. Ls fact,
Farnan once knocked out Jackson in
three rounds, and in a second encounter
Farnan had Jackson on the ring floor
at the time the arena
was rusnea Dy
a mob. Farnan was smaller than Jack
son and not nearly so elover a boxer.
Thea. battle, took nl.ee in 1884 in
Australia, at a time when Jackson was
developing as the probable heavyweight
champion of that country. Farnaa
claimed to be the champion of Mel
bourne, and the pair were matched for
a title fight in that city. In the first
round it sec mod as if Jackson would
win as he pleased, as he scored half a
dozen knockdowns before the round
But Farnan freshened remarkably
during the minute's rest, and started
the second round with a fusillade of
blows to Jackson's body. These blows
seemed to weaken Jackson, who lost

Farnan continued his body attacks in
the third round, and soon had Jackson
in his own corner in a helpless condi
tion. Farnan then let go a heavy right
that caught Jackson on the side of
the head and brought him down As
he failed to arise in ten seconds, Far
nan was declared the winner.
Jackson asked for another match, i nd
Farnan consented. The meeting took
place in Sydney. In the fourth roun 1
Farnan drove a hard blow to the stom
ach and Jackson went to the floor. At
this point a mob rushed into tho ring

1'nder the rules the referee ordered
a resumption of the battle within seven

for some reason unexplained, consented
to a draw verdict, Farnan having brok

intimated he had been drugged in both
bouts, but the matter never was in
Farnan and Jackson never again met
in the ring, but Tom Lees beat Farnan,
and Jackson later defeated Lees. But
Jackson never ceased to lament the
fact that he had not wiped out the
defeat inflicted bv Farnan.
