Too Fast For
Growers Handicapped By Wet Wea
ther, Bad Roads, and Scarcity of
Labor. Some Loss From Fast
Added to the losses which the
pineapple growers of tho Haiku dis
trict will sustain this year owing to
the low prices paid by the canneries
for their fruit, at least some of the
farmers are sustaining still further
loss through inability to nurkot
their crop as fast as it ripens. To
this must be added also an ahnor
mally high cost for hauling to the
cannery, due to excessive rains in
For the past two weeks, the pine
apples have been ripening very
rapidly. Much of it, owing to the
lack of sunshine in the district this
season, did not color yellow until it
was almost dead ripe, and thus some
of the growers were deceived into
thinking they had plenty of time
-ahead of them. Last week's few
days of sunshine brought all this-
fruit to maturity with a rush, with
tho result that Haiku district is
about the busiest place in Maui at
present. Labor to pick the pines
has also been scarce. Last Sunday
the work in the fields and at the
canneries continued without a break,
for in nt) other way could the situ
ation be even fairly well handled.
The roads through the home
steads, owing to the almost conti
nual rains, are all but impassable.
Auto trucks cannot operate, and
there is a general scarcity of teams.
In at least one instance, it isreport
ed that teamsters demanded as high
as $o per ton for hauling, though
the general price is from Sl.fiO to
82.50 per ton. The rush is expect
ed to continue for another week or
In launching his campaign for
Delegate to Congress on the Pro-
rcssivc ticket. George It. Carter
repeatedly referred to K. Faxon
Hishop, .1. I Cooke and 13. D.
Tenney as his sponsors and as the
three men whoso promised support
induced hitn to enter tho political
lists. In his early correspondence,
soliciting support, Mr. Carter quot
ed, says the Advertiser, the sup
posed promises of Messrs. Bishop,
Cooke and Tenney, and some sup
port was promised him on tho
representations made. s
That Mr. Carter was mistaken in
supposing that the managing direc
tors of the three greatest firms in
Hawaii stood ready to support him
as a candidate of the Dull Moose
party is now certain. The Adverti
ser has already published a signed
statement from Mr. Bishop, that he
is a llico man and a 1'epublican.
This morning the Advertiser is able
to published a statenrvnt prepared
by Mr. Cooke, in which he reallirms
his Republicanism and states his
intention to support the Republican
Mr. Cooke says: "Ever since
1S9G, when I voted for President
McKinley, 1 have been a loyal sup
porter of tho Republican party and
I expect to be found in the ranks
for many years to come. 1 intend
to take part in the primaries in
September as a Republican and
vote as a Republican."

New Maui Forest Reserve
The board of agriculture and
forestry has approved the creation
of the Kaupo-Kipahulu forest re
serve, on this island, which was re
cently recommended by thesuperin
tendent of forestry, R. S. llosmer.
A hearing has been set for, August
19th on the matter, at which time
protests may bo filed, or other per
tinent matter brought, before the
board. The proposed reserve con
tains 10,700 acres, according to tho
"by authority" notice published in
California to Have
Record Fruit Crop.
Valuable Poultry Booklet
"Poultry Management" is the
title of press bulletin No. 4(5, just
issued by the Hawaii experiment
station. This paper, by C. K. Mc
Clelland, contains much information
based on Hawaii experiments and
The pages on feeding and the final
chapter on diseases of poultry are
particularly interesting and valu
able. The bulletin will be mailed free
of charge to anyone in Hawaii who
will drop a postal card to tho direct
or of the station, Dr. E. V. Wilcox.
Suggestion fo Packers.
The Garden Island, commenting
on I. D. Dole s recent address to
the Haiku pineapple growers,
makes the folic, wingsuggestibrisa!
being done to increase
the market for Hawaiian pines.
We would like to ask Mr. Dole if
either he or his associates have
made effort to create markets in
New Zealand, Australia and the
Orient? Those countries afford
promising fields for exploitation,
and, aside from recent efforts put
forward by Messrs. Theo. II.
Davies & Company, we are not a
ware of any move being made to
open markets there. It is a mis
take to longer confine attention to
one market. The output of Ha
waiian pineapples (now equal to
oucTiiairiTie output of fruits of the
great state of California) is too
large for that, and new markets
must be found and found quickly.
New Autos on Maui
County Fair Idea
Is Generally Approved
Hawaii's County fair idea meets
with the very general approbation of
the newspapers of the Territory.
The Garden Island, this week has
the following to say on the subject -Various
organizations of the is
land of Hawaii were to have met at
Uilo today to formulate- plans for a
county fair to be given in December
or January next, presumably at
Uilo. This is the first real attempt
at anything of the kind on a large
scale ever attempted in the Islands
outside of Honolulu, and the results
will be awaited with interest.
The last legislature considered
fairs of this sort of such importance
that an appropriation was made for
financing the same in the different
counties. Governor Pinkhain, how
ever, in his wisdom or otherwise,
saw fit to cut outtbc appropriation,
leaving the respective Islands to
their own resources in the matter.
We believe that such fairs can be
made of value, andUujhno rav

The pack of canned fruits in
California promises to make a new
argc record according to the state
ments issued by the California State
Development Hoard. Good autho
rities place it at 25 or 30 per cent
artrer than last season. A number
of new canneries are in operation,
:dl running to capacity.
Green fruit shipments have not
been interfered with, there having
been 1,026 cars shipped up to the
17th inst., against 477 last year.
Citrus fruit shipments to the 15th
nst.. were 38,503 carloads (of
which 5,417 were lemons), against
15,100 carloads (oranges and leni

A Product Of
40 Years' Experience
For 40 years and over wc have been successfully
manufacturing lubricating oils for hundreds of different
purposes. When the automobile came into use, our
experts made a thorough study of its construction and
operation and we produced Zerolene, a special oil to
meet the exact lubricating requirements of this type of
THE STANDARD OIL
FOR MOTOR CARS
We therefore recommend Zerolene not merely as a
good oil, but as actually the best motor oil we can
make. It is giving satisfactory service to thousands of
motorists. It keeps the motor cool by perfect lubri
cation; cuts down repair costs and lengthens the life
of the car.
