ARMY OFFICER IS Captain Forbes Au-ested, Charg ed With Marrying Before Final Divorce Decree Was Granted The local military authorities have placed Capt. M or res H. Forbes under arrest at Hcliofle.UI Barracks and will bring him before n court martial to le tried on a chnrge of bigamy. The arrest arose out of the fact that Captaiu Forbes was divorced, his wife having brought suit a year an", about tile time he first came to the Islands, and was granted un interlocutory de cree. Hefore the final .decree was issued he was married to Miss Coiiitne Clnsti anson, of Suit Luke City, the Ifcv. I.. II. Tracy, of the fcpisropal chun ti, per forming the ceremony. Miss I'hristi anson came to Hawaii last year from the niuinla'id to teach in the public schools. She and Mr. Forbes met at that time, (she returned to the states early this year and returned tin sum n'er with her mother to marry Forbes, who had received a laviiteiuint 's cum mission as n graduate of the lii t He serve Officers' Training Camp lull at Schoold Barracks a year ngo. While army department he:i d i 1:1 1 1 i rs wns working over some pupers of i';ip lain Forbes tint had to be signed the fact was revealed that the entire veil called for in the interlocutory decree had not passed when the captain mar ried Miss Christinnson. It is asserted by some local author ities that the marriage of a divorced person in Hawaii before a final de cree had been issued in some other state or Territory, where 41 wait of one venr or more is required, does not eonxti'iite grounds for a prosecution on a charge of bigamy in the Hawnii rivil courts This is because the Hawaii statute- .1 1 not require a divorced person in Ha aii to wait any stnted period to con tract another marriage after the de cree takes effect. It is probablv nn this account that ('itl'tnin Morris had no difficulty or cm ban assment in securing a license, and therefore sutqioscd his marriage was eutirelv lesra), as it was entered into nfter Hawaiian authority was granted fnr the wedding. Those who support thi view, however, point out that if a divorced person remnrries in some other state or territory and then nA turns to the state where the first decree was granted, tbe remarried divorced person might be liable to prosecution on a bigamy charge. w a. a- Hi".

A general gut togetl er meeting was held by Food Administrator Ch Id and the keepers of public entint; places in the city in the chamber of commerce rooms yesterday afternoon and for mre than two hours, the lai-'e assem blage resembled a class room with Mr. Child the teacher nnd dcmnnt 1 ator and the audience his pupils. Hectinn bv section, each of the new food regulation relative to public eat ing places wns taken up. analyzed and discussed. Fvrv d: tail relative to each order whs explained bv M,r. Child and then discussion was invited. Qoatinn of Bread The matter of whe her locnd should be served before, with, m after the first eonrse was the subject of consid erable debate. The regulation savs, "No public rating place shall allow any bread to be brought to the table nnt'l after tip- first course is served." The object of this regulation. Mr. Child ejrplainedy-as to do nwav with the custom prevalent in restaurants of bringing on a platter of bread, which the guest generally finished before the meal wan aerved. Some nf thosv present wanted to know how they would handle a ense "here a man wanted bread with his soup. Another wanted to know what would happen if the guest had onlv t'-e price of one imiise. Another piint e. out that if the bi'tid was brought at the same time q the soup. 1111 extra trip to the h-itchen for the bienl could be snved. Mr. Child diplomatic:. Ily settled these vexing ipiestinns bv tolling his hearers that the n-ai-i -ibie-t in pro mulgating these r.'g-i!at ions was to help win the war and for each restau" rant and hotel keeper to use Ins own good lodgement nloniT the-.e lii.es. ' I'ielesw meals will be the vogue un der this new order of tilings in the eating line; for guests are allowed but two unices of breid at each oie- I. If one desires pie, he must abstain from bread- he cannot have bread and pic at the same muul. Onl) one half oiuice portions of but ter will be .served at ench meal alter next Tuesday and no second helpings are ullowed. This announcement v as greeted with cheery from several of the rmurding house, keepers prison!. After all of the various new legula tioiis had been explained and discuss el, it was decided that an cnfoi cement committee, selected from the lestau rant, hotel out boarding house and cafe keepers' be appointed by Food Ad mniiatrator Child to adjudicate all cases of violations of these regulations, which may be brought to its at tent ion. Following the meeting Mr. Child up pointed Walter Baker, managei of the Young Hotel; James K. Hamilton, man ager of the Commercial Club, an I Miss Mary Johnson, jwoprietor of the Colo niul Hutel, as members of this commit tee. Mr. Child explained that the put pose of organizing this enforcement com mittee was for the protection of the public ictaiilers themselves. If oat' restaurant keeper is living strotlv up to all of the provisions of tin so regu latlons and his competitor aero-, the way is not, the business of tie- lirst named peison naturally sntTers. t n up to him then to lav u complaint be fore the euf'orocm''nt committee and if fouud guilty, punishment is ad'iiiio-ter ed by the food administration As each of the members of this nuiiiii.l tee has had much practical expoio'iice in the handling of the eating public, Mr. Child is of the belief that 'hcv nre in a better position to .judge and decide these eases than he is. Beating tbe Barrier Although ttiese new resolutions do not go into effect until next Mondav, several of the restaurants and boarding houses have put most of the rogul-i tiiiiis into effect already. Th one tea spoonful (Tf sugar per meal order is being en'foreed in practicallv nil of the restauranja nnd some Of the boarding houses of the citv. In some instat guests wetre given quite a surpiise when they hail sugared their grape fiuit or orange 11s usual nnd then found to their dismav lli.it they could have no more to put on their cereal or in their coffee. Before closing the meeting Mr. Child drew the attention nf his audi tors to the necessity of saving animal (a,t and not letting this nseful com modify run out into the sewer or be Consumed in the lire. He cited an in stance in Honolulu where a cafe owner had saved enough animal fat in a sloo' length of time to piovnle his pbn-e of business with more than 100 pounds of "uin.

A canvass of members of the Board of Ketail Trades yesterday, indicated that many of the merchants while ready to close their places of business if Gov ernor McCarthy feels that this policy should be pursued, many were also of the opinion that they could better aerve the requirements of registration by ar ranging to have their employes leave their places of Easiness, visit the regis tration booths nnd register, and on re turning permit other employes to leave, until all are registered. They say that this is in no wise in opposition to closing, but they lie lieve the registration will be aided rather than retarded by following this method. If their places of business are closed at the usual hour on Friday af ternoon preceding regis! t at ion day all employes are then free to do as thev wish. They can register earlv or late.
