TIIK MAUI XEWS, SATURDAY. OCTOHER 10, 1014.
Decision Of Supreme Tribunal Means
Much To Hawaii. Great Con
fusion Will Result If Law Is
The constitutionality of the new
Primary Law was passed up to the
Territorial Supreme Court on Thurs
day or this week, and an opinion is
expected within a few days. Much
speculation has been indulged in as
to the results that will follow should
the law be declared invalid.
HONOLUJJF, October 8. Republi
can and Democratic party leaders al
most literally shudder with apprehen
sion at the thought of what may,
might, could, would or should happen
if the new direct primary law suc
cumbs to the various attacks now be
ing made upon it through the courts.
It is admitted frankly that if this
law is knocked out and the primary
results of September 12 are held null
anil void, Hawaiian polities and gov
ernment will be in vast and almost
inextricable confusion. Just what
would happen to the various county
governments and the legislature no
one seems to know. It is thought that
som kind of a special election would
have1 to be held, but whether that
would be necessary before or after the
November election date the wise-acres
in law and politics do not agree.
Meanwhile one candidate, Delegate
Kuhio, has taken time by the forelock
and filed a new set of nomination
papers under the old law, so if the
primary law is knocked out he will
still have some standing.
Cut the other legislative candidates,
not realizing, perhaps, the danger to
their interests if the direct primary
law is punctured by the supreme
court, have taken no steps to file new
papers. Under the law such papers
miikt be filed thirty days prior to the
general election, and of course this
was the action taken under the old
convention system. After the conven
tions bad nominated their candidates,
the candidates would duly file nomi
nation papers and their names would
go on the general election ballots.
Last Saturday night, October 3, was
the last date on which nomination
papers could be filed, under the old
law, by candidates from the outside
islands for the legislature or for dele
gate, which explains the haste made
late Saturday afternoon to get the
Kuhio nomination signed by the re
quisite number of voters.
Municipal candidates have plenty
of time yet In which to hand in the
nominations in case they wish to do
so. However, a good many candidates
may not take the trouolc to comply
with the provisions of the old law.
Two Attacks Made
Two separate lines of attack are be
ing made on the primary law, one
of them the friendly test cubo brought
by Robert W. Breckons vine-chairman
of the Republican party, in the
form of a mandamus suit, and the
other the mandamus suit brought by
George A. Davis on hcha.it o peti
tioner who allege the unc.jnttitution
ality of the .direct primary law. Hoth
suits, it is expected, will be hastened
to a decision by the supreme court.
It was reported today that Attorney
DaviB is also filing quo v arranto pro
ceeding, or proceedings to oust,
though this it is said, would be an
unusual legal method of getting at the
required result, inasmuch as primary
candidates nominated on September
12 are not yet in office. "However, this
may be directed against. City Clerk
Kalauokalani, who received a major
ity of all votes in the primary cast
for his office and thus under the pii
mary law was elected outright.
There are a lot of questions to be
settled by these various attacks,
friendly or otherwise, on the primary
law, and it is generally believed that
the law will be upheld by the supreme
court. Whether it is kno-k.-'l out
or not, several troublesome questions
will be settled by the supreme court
Venice Ball Team

SAN FRANCISCO, October 7. Ho
gan's Venice ball players are consid
ering spending the spring in Hawaii,
. where they will maintain their train
ing quarters, preparatory to the open

Big Pack Said To Have Been Already
Sold And More Could Be Handled
Ray of Hope For Growers For
That pineapples will bring a better
price next year, is the prediction of
a number of persons who have been
following the tips and downs of this
industry. It is stated that in spite
of the greatest pack on record (over
2,000,000 cases) this great quantity
has already been virtually disposed
of by the packers, and some grades
ara bringing a premium. A wellv
known pineapple packer stated a few
days ago that the canners would be
glad to have more fruit just at present
if they could get it. Tho extremely
low prices of the Hawaiian product,
put into effect, at tho beginning of
this season, seems to have "moved
the goods" even faster than the most
sanguine had hoped, and this in spite
of the fact that the European market
was completely cut off by the war.
Kula Are To
Important Agricultural Section Will
Try To Pull Together In Marketing
Products And Bringing Supplies.
The Superintendent of the Terri
torial Marketing Division, A. T. Long
ley, will be in Kula today to talk over
with the farmers of that section the
formation of a co-operative organiza
tion. A meeting will be held in the
Kealahou school at two o'clock, and
all the farmers of Kula, of all nation
alities, men and women, are requested
to come to this meeting.
Kula is the largest farming section
in these islands. Until now each man
has worked by himself and shipped
whatever he pleased in any way he
pleased. As a consequenco lack of
uniformity in the product and the ab
sence of proper grading and packing
has lesulted in the farmers receiving
less for their crops than would have
been received if the methods that
have been successful in other farming
sections had been followed.
To better these conditions it is pro
posed to form a co-operative organiza
tion of the farmers. The first aim of
the association will be to improve the
grading and packing of Kula produce,
to 'adopt a trade mark under which
properly graded and packed stuff can
be shipped, and thus, by building up a
reputation, get better prices.
The association will also be able to
buy seeds and provisions for its mem
bers at wholesale prices; to arrange
for hauling large loads on big wagons
and thus save much time now wasted
by each farmer hauling his own small
load; to own machines and equipment
which no one farmer could afford
to buy for his own use only; to own
good sires and thus improve the live
stock; and to exercise an influence for
better conditions in every way by

the Big Island delegates to the Civic
Convention, the outlook for the home
steaders in the Kukaiau district is far

proportion of the blossoms and ber

A large proportion of the settlers in
that district, Mr. Kelsey says, will find
themselves in debt at the end of the
