Haiku Homesteaders Trying to
Solve Problem of Getting a
Fair Price For Pineapples
Demonstration Farm For District.
A cooperative cannery for tho Hai
ku homesteads, is again a matter that
1b being given serious consideration
by tho settlers in tho now pineapple
district. At a very largely attended
meeting last Saturday night at the
Kuiaha school house, tho subject was
exhaustively discussed, and the meet
ing adjourned to meet again tomorrow
morning for tho purpose of going fur
ther into tho matter. Tho proposition
of the farmers forming a corporation
among themselves, pooling their hold
ings, and having not only the cannery
operated co-operatively but tho grow
ing of the fruit as well, was urged
Can't Depend on Present Canneries.
While thero aro differences of opin
ion as to tho methods of organizing,
the homesteaders appear to bo prac
tically a unit on tho necessity of get
ting the canning of their fruit into
their own control, if they are to con
tinue to grow pineapples. The past
season has been one of bitter exper
ience for many of tho growers, and
while tho canneries aro now calling
loudly for fruit which they a few
months ago were loath to take at any
figure, tho prices to those who have
contracts, have not advanced. Re
ports that the present pack is already
sold out, and that the canners are
getting higher prices for their pack
than earlier in the season, do not tend
to make the growers feel any more
Dole Company Canvasing District.
During tho past week representa
tives of tho Haiku Fruit & Packing
Company have been busy among the
homesteaders collecting data as to
areas planted and to be planted.
That prices will bo better next
year is hinted, and generally be
lieved. It seems quite likely that
enough of tho homesteaders will
bo persuaded to accept the induce
ments held out, to make "the co-opera
tive plan impossible. However, most
of those already under seven-year
contracts with the Dole company, aro
trying to find somo loop-hole by which
they can get out.
Hopes For Other Crops.
Some of the farmers in the district
are still hopeful that they may bo
able to make a living independently
off pineapples, and are encouraged by
tho promise of tho Federal Expert'
ment Station to establish a demons'
tratlon farm in tho district within a
short time. It is understood that ar
rangements have been practically
completed by which Prof. Krauss, of
tho College of Hawaii, will bo appoint
ed by tho Department of Agriculture
to have charge of this demonstration
work, and that as soon as a few more
reels, of red tape aro unwound, the
official announcement will bo made,
Prof. Krauss, who Is a homesteader
himself, is confident that he can
demonstrate tho feasibility of produe
ing a number of good paying crops
on the Haiku lands, other than pine
apples, and Dr. Wilcox, of tho Expert
ment Station, is of tho same opinion,
In tho meantime most of tho home
Fteaders aro reasonably cheerful and
for the most part are experimenting
along various lines on their own hooli
in hope of finding a revenue producer,

Wailukus Must Win Tomorrow's
Game Or Lose Championship
Made Poor Showing Last
Puunene, 9; Wailuku, 1.
Last Sunday's gamo at Walluku
Park was a swatfest for the Puune-
nes, while tho Wailukus were unable
to find Suyeda, tho little Japanese
f outhpaw of tho 'sugar growers.' Af-
ter allowing six runs off Billy Bal
in half as many innings, Holme
Meyer undertook to put a stop to the
onslaught. He succeeded in holding
them down, being charged with three
runs in six innings. It was not alto
gether tho pitchers' fault. Tho team
as a whole showed lack of practise,
for their fielding was puuk and their
work with the stick was very poor.
Tho battery of the Puuneno team,
Ito and Suyeda,. two sons of the Ris
ing Sun, are a crackcrjack combina
tion. Their work last Sunday was of
excellent quality. Suyeda allowed but
few hits, and these widely scattered,
and ho fanned out no less than ten
Tho Wailukus were first to bat.
Bal got to first aftci forcing Cocktt
out at second, and when Meyers hit
deep into center garden, came trot
ting home scoring tho first and only
run for his team.
Tho Puunones came to bat iand
scored two runs. Baldwin hit out to
center for threo bags scoring Cle
ment, who got to first on an error,
and came romping homo a few mimi
cs lalei when Carrera got to the
first bag on another error.
Again in tho third, fourth and fifth
frames tho 'sugar growers' scored at
will, until they had totaled nine, after
which they took things easy.
The teams meet again tomorrow
afternoon at threo o'clock. Tho Pua
nene aggregation goes into tho game
with tho hope of annexing the third
game thereby obtaining tho 1014
championship, while the Wailuku
bunch will, try to tic them. In any
event a good gamo is promised and a
fair attendance is expected.

which grew with amazing rapidity

result isV.that most of tho growers are
now facing a very serious problem of

high as $30 per acre has been paid on
