Somewhere in the pigeonholes used by the members of the board of supervisors is an ordinance-in-the-making regulating the methods of conducting public dance halls in Honolulu. The ordinance niay have slipped in the same crack which held .the building ordinance until such times as the friends of the city attorney could rush up fire-trap tenements through Chinatown, or it may simply be nusdalt by. the police committee until the primaries in Kakaafco have been held, but at any rate it has disappeared from view, after having been committed to the police committee's care, the first move for months being the calling ol a publiemeeting for this evening, ou short notice, to discuss the long lost measure. - it js admitted that there should be one or more public dance halls in this city, places where the young men and women of Honolulu who cannot get invitations to the more pretentious "affairs'' may meet and pass away some hours to music and where the resident soldiers and the visiting sailors may meet, young Honolulu and become acquainted under favorable conditions. There should be a stop put to the back-lane dance hall, however, and to those places where vice is encouraged and made, in every possible way, a feature ol t he joints. There are such in Honolulu. The city of Cleveland, Ohio, has recently opened a municipal dance hall. There is no particularly good reason why Honolulu cannot do the same, and no particularly good reason why she should not. Tjie place could be made self-sustaining, could be easily regulated and could be made a means of breaking up the disreputable dance-hall resorts of the city. In reference to the Cleveland plan, the current number of The Outlook says: "Last year general attention was called to the reform in Cleveland of the j public dance halls. As in many cities, the Cleveland dance halls had been found to be unsanitary, unventilated, without proper fire-escapes, open to too many very young persons and at too late hours, and the dances themselves deplorably unregulated. Moved by a general expression of protest on the part of the citizens, the city council passed an ordinance providing that no public dance could be held except in a duly-licensed hall; that the license fee therefor should be in proportion to the square-foot floor-space of the hall; that no public dance hall should be licensed until it conformed to this ordinance, and, in addition, to the rules of the city board of health and fire department; that the license could be revoked for non-compliance; that the dances should terminate at 12:30 a. m., except when the mayor should extend the time to 2 a. m.; that no 'new people' should be admitted after midnight; and that children under eighteen years of age should be excluded after nine .0 'clock, unless in the company of a parent or natural guardian. During the time that has since elapsed, a considerable number of halls were closed for failure to comply with these terms, and about a hundred were licensed. But two evils still persist. First, liquor is sold in most of the dance halls. Sometimes even a third of the young people are seen to be under the influence of liquor before the dances are over; Second, during the year many grotesque dances have been conducted in an indecent manner. Certainly it is a shame to turn an otherwise proper, healthful, and delightful form of reereation into opportunity for license and debaueh. The most efficacious means of stopping the menaces which still continue is, in the opinion of many, for the city itself to institute properly-controlled municipal dance halls, and by a very low price, together with particularly good music and excellent general equipment, to attract thither boys and girls who have been improperly affected at the existing dance halls. To this end the park superintendent has asked the school board of Cleveland to grant the use of school auditoriums throughout the city; and by a system of three-cent dances long dances, too! to put the school houses in direct competition with the saloon dances. "The authorities of the city of Cleveland did not wait for the school board's action regarding the use of school auditoriums throughout the city, as an objection Vas brought up that admission could hardly be charged for functions in school buildings. While this question was under discussion, the city government made an aggressive move. Fortunately, it did not require an ordinance of the Cleveland city council; the arrangement was made by executive order, and followed the plan of having dances in the park shelter houses. The result was that iast week the mayor of Cleveland inaugurated a municipal dance hall in Edgewater Park. The opening was a tremendous success. No less than twelve thousand three-cent dance tickets were sold the first day. Edgewater. Park is particularly well located, having the shore of Lake Erie on the one side, and on the other a congested manufacturing and tenement district not far from 'Whisky Island,' where the great ore docks are. The opening ceremony of this municipal dance hall was certainly suggestive of new and better things. The grand march was led by .Mayor and Mrs. Maker: ihey were followed by their two children, and they by the officials of the municipality. After the march the dancing began under the direction of the city's uniformed dance officials. All dancing of certain modern and indecent dances was, of course, prohibited. Both dance floor and environment were conducted in a satisfactory manner, the park department furnishing the floor manager, attendants, policemen, and music. The success certainly justifies the city in opening other park shelter houses and large pavilions for similar purposes. Thus Cleveland seems far ahead of all other American cities in handling the dance-hall problem. While men differ as to just how far a municipality ought to go in the direction of recreation for the community, the experiment of municipal dance halls is an interesting one." THE PASSING HOUR. Who is this R. McGeddon who is so prominent in the Bull Moose party? j Roosevelt is probably wondering why anyone should be worrying about his j campaign fund in 19:i4, which was all spent long ago. What is worrying the; Colonel, himself, is his campaign fund for 1912. A mainland exchange calls attention to the" increasing demands for "white hopes." with a full-blooded Indian the champion all-round athlete of the world, a full-blooded Hawaiian the swimming champion of the world, and a full-blooded negro the pugilistic champion of the world. It is a mighty poor sort of welcome the Democrats are planning for Duke Kahauamoku, if they really intend to nominate him as their candidate for city clerk. Kahanamoku deserves something better than the chance to run for an office he is not qualified to, fill and which he has no chance whatever of winning. John C. Lane has all but announced his determination to save the country by running for the sheriffship on the Republican ticket. Mr. Lane has been training his ear to catch the call of duty for four long years, and now has it educated to such a fine point that he can hear his own name even if someone else be called. Senator Lodge, in discussing the Panama Caoal Bill and the effort successfully made to bar out railroad-owned vessels, said one sentence that should be read with care by every thinking American, epitomizing as it does the whole political and economic situation which is now faced by the country. Declared the senator: "We are getting into that state of mind where it seems to be the assumption that if any man or any corporation has a dollar in the world, accumulated or earned, it is prima facie evidence that they stole it, and that the only certificate of honesty is that a man should have nothing in his pocket." AUTO CAUGHT BY RAPID TRANSIT CARS The arrests were the result of a complaint made to the grand jury by the husband, who was deserted by Kin Sato, and indictments were brought in last Saturday morning. Kin Sato was a picture bride a short time ago, but it did not take long for her to acquire an i idea of personal liberty not always j compatible with the principles of pic- Machine Is Smashed to Bits, but ture brides.

FOIRIE DNSURANCE THE QUEEN INSURANCE COMPANY Is as solid as the Bank of England and pays its lesses promptly and always in fulL directions, anyone has a right to su-pose that the chauffeur is overdoing things. There is a wreck on King street, just Ewa of the Nuuanu street bridge, which this morning bears testimony to this fact. It once was a Ford automobile, number 261, down on the list as the property of H. Shipley. It continued to be an automobile "up to twenty minutes to nine last night, when it was suddenly reduced to scrap iron, with the accent on the "scrap." That none of the several occupants of the car, all young men, was mangled and kilied, is a wonder. There was every excuse for calling out the coroner except the corpses. At the hour and minute mentioned, King street car ol was proceeding Ka-lihiward and Liliha and Emma car 19 was coming into town. The automobile was running alongside the King street car and in the same direction. It occurred to the chauffeur that he could save a second by cutting in ahead of the King street car and save turning out for the Emma street ear", and he did. Unfortunately his second turned out to be in favor of the two rapid transit cars and they came together on the automobile like a big pair of nippers. They were scratched nj a bit. but the automobile' was scrunched to flinders. CHORUS GIRLS TO COMPETE FOR PRIZE TO HONOLULU'S LUCKY CHILDREN. This week marks the end of the long vacation period for many of the schools, ami for the time being the toys that helped pass the hours during the past two months will be put ar ay and book and pencil substituted. This week, too. marks the end of work in the pineapple canneries for many of the younger boys and girls who have taken advantage of the temporary suspension of the compulsory school attendance law to earn real money, certain that no truant orticer would interfere to hale them off to lessons. These latter children have been conspicuously absent from the public playgrounds during the holiday weeks, but are expected back again now in increased numbers. For these children, who have spent their holidays at work. The Advertiser has been asked to make an appeal to the more fortunate children, whose recent freedom from school has meant days passed in carefree play, with doll and ball and skippiug rope. The children's playground, at the corner of Smith and Heretania street, conducted under the auspices of the free kindergarten association, needs toys for tin1 children who will come there now.

After three months' leave of absence General Carter will assume command of the central division of the army with headquarters at Chicago. Brig.-Gen. William W. Wotherspoon probably will assume the position of assistant chief of staff, made vacant by the relief of General Carter.

There was a packed house at the Liberty Theater last evening to see Raymond Teal and his company present ''.hist For a Kid." This is undoubtedly the best skit staged here by the Teals; it was excruciatingly funny, bright, ami also well played. Altogether the performance was a most en joyable one and well worth the seeing. Tomorrow evening, when the Teal engagement ends here, there is to be a chorus girl competition, and every one of the pretty misses is furbishing up her best stunt with which to capture public approval, for be it known that Manager Teal has offered a substantial prize to that particular bright star of; the chorus who wins the heartiest ap- ; plause by the audience, and it is safe to , say that the stunts produced will be of; the best.
