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.

Hotel. Restaurant. Cafe and

imously Agree To Obey
Reduction of Butter Portion
Cheered No Pie If Bread Is
Served Sugsr Will Be Scarce
Without n dissenting voice prnctic
ally all of the hotel, rctanrnnt, cafe
and boarding house keepers ofVHono
lulu, hsith White nnd Orientnl, agreed
yeaterday to on fore the new general
orders issued bv the national footl nil
ministration, which . materially cut.
down the food consumption in these
public eating places and which will go
into offeet on Mondav, October 21.
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
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

modify run out into the sewer or be
Consumed in the lire. He cited an in
stance in Honolulu where a cafe owner

October 26 in Hawaii, have been
made in Hawaiian, f'ortuguese, Spanish,
Chinese, Japanese, Korean and three
dialects of Filipino, and will be thor
oughly distributed in every plantation
district 00 Oahu, Maui, Kauai, Hawaii
and Molokai, so that every person eligi
ble for registration under the "Man
Power Act" will know exactly why he
is called upon to register ut this time.
The registration cards and all forms
necessary to complete the registrations
are being forwarded by Major 11. Good
ing Field, selective draft officer, to all
local draft boards, to arrive at each
locality an sufficient time to have every
thing in readiness before October 2(1.
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.
There is a half holiday on Saturday,
anvhow, ami the afternoon would be
open to all employes to register even
if thev did not do so in the forenoon
I uiiiler the detail arrangement.

Food Commission To Prosecute
AH Violators of, Sanl :
tary Regulations . a;j
Wastage of Food Through Un
sanitary Conditions Must '
Stop, Says Commissioner
. i- -..
Violation! of the health regulation i
relative to the handling of foodstuff
will be proseented through tha federal
food commission rather than through
tbe police ceurts, as haa been tha eut
tom in the past, it waa indicated jree
terday when three Chinese meat 4eat
ers were cited to appear before Feod
Administrator Child aad stow, cause
why they should not be placed cu tho
"unfair" Tiat and their lieeaae Can
celled, because it waa charged their
pla-a of business were in a filthy and
unsanitary condition.
See Sang, a meat-dealer at tha fish
market, was the first offender te feol
the new order of thing. A board of
health inspector made an Inspection
of a room the Chinese had rented U
the )nhu Tee Company 'a plant and re
ported the conditions found, there f
Food Administrator Child aa being
"unsanitary, over-crowded, food adult-,
erated aad evidence of wasted food."
After receiving the reoort Mr. rhSW
addressed the following letter to Be I
"Complaint has bee a brought by tha
territorial health inspector that tha
cold storage apartment ia tha Oahu
Ice Company ice house, containing
merchandise belonging to you, la in
an unsatisfactory condition and that
s rapa or meat, meat bones, refuse and
filth were found aeattered about tha
floor that there were two piga inf tha
room in the first atagei of decomposi
tion and that there waa an necessary
waste of food, caused by nnaanitary
conditions in your room in thace
house. , ' ; r.
"You wilt please show cause Why
all licensed dealers should, not Jbw pre
vented from selling you merchandise.
"Unless satisfactory reply la had
within twyty-four hours, aa 'unfair
order' wrrr be issued against you.".,
flea Chang Data Busy .
Upon the receipt of tbia notice, Beit
Chang Immediately had the attending
room ia the ire houea cleaned aad thea
called upon Child with profnae and
abject apologies and a cast-iron prem
ise that he would tin ao mora. Sea
Chang baa been given antil thia morn
ing to aeeure a certificate from tha -board
of health showing that hla place
of business is in a sanitary condition.
A secoird violation of thia kind will
mean the cancelling of See Chang 'a
dealer's lieenae.
Hardly had this ease been disposed
of yesterday when two mora violatora
were reported for similar offenaea. They
were C. (j. Tee Hop k Co. and Chun
Kow, both doing busineaa at tha fish
market. According to Food Admiaia
trator Child, both of theae dealer'
rooms in the ice house were la an
equally unsanitary and filthy condi
tion. .
The same form of letter as aent to
See Hang has been sent to C. Q. Tea
Hop ft Co. ami Chun Kow. These
dealers have been given the usual
twenty-four hours to make a satisfae- !
tory reply and in the event one ia not
forthcoming, summary action will be,
U. S. Haa Authority ,
Although these violation ar pri- .
marily health violations, the charge of
wastage of food gives the food ad- '
ministration jurisdiction in the matter.
Food Inspector Bairos laid the matte
before Food Administrator Child and
asked him to take auction, aa ha felt
dissatisfied with the meaner in which
cases of this nature had been handled ,
in tbe past in the (ml ice court. V
Bairos said that when these ease
came up for trial in the police court
the usual continuances and postpone
ments were ao common that they
dragged along from week to week and -then
some slight punishment, if any,
was administered. Much of Bairoa
time was taken up by ndlesa tripa
to the pulice court, he said, and ha da
cided that quicker and more draatio '
action could be gained by having tha
violatora handled by the fo'odeom
misaion. ' " '.' "
Mr. Child aaid last night that aot
oaJy meat dealers would be proeoeuted,
but ajso restaurant keepers, baker and
other food dispenser who' allowed their
places to get into a filthy and tin-1
sauitary condition. In nllowiug their 1
places of business to get into thia .
condition, they are thus contributing
toward the wastage of food, be- aald.
