Interest. The K. F. C. A. was organ
ized October 10, 101-1. No returns
have been recleved for shipments
mado later than December 8, so the
figures show the business for almost
exactly tho two months following
October 10. The total paid to farmers
in net returns Is $1015.98. This Is ex
clusive of all charges, It is what the
farmers have received after hauling,
wharfage, freight and the charges at
Honolulu have been deducted.
Following arc examples of the ac

This corn netted the farmer $1.52 2-3

must be taken from this. It has been
sometimes 5c, sometimes C'Ac, de

to pay for them. On some accounts
the corn has netted as low as $1.49

On accounts rendered on tho same

$4.40 a bag on white.
On egg sales the farmers have re

Local buyers in Kula are paying not
over $1.40 for this grade of corn, $2.25
for calico beans, not over $3.00 for red
beans, 35 cents and 40 cents for eggs.
A comparison of these figures with
the returns the Association has made
speaks for itself.
On tho buying side, although that
part of the work has hardly been
started, the Association has been able
to sell its members kerosene at 16
cents a gallon (local price 25 o-nts),
and rice at $4.75 a bag (local price
$5.15 and over). On these -.ales tho
Association has made a profit of "

Sensational Charges Made By Mother
of Dead Heiress in Opening Her
Fight to Break Will Husband
Pictured as Monster.
What promises to bo one of 'the big
gest and bitterest lawsuits ever stag
ed in this territory, Is that instituted
last week In Kallua, by Mrs. Elizabeth
J. Knight against Henry Galllard
Smart, to break tho will of her daugh
tor, tho late Thelma Parker Smart.
Mrs. Knight filed a most sensational
petition through her attorneys, Frcar,
Prosser, Anderson & Marx, and Hol
mes, Stanley & Olson, In Judge Math
ewman's court alleging not only that
Smart exercises practically a hypno
tic influence over his wlfo In Inducing
hor to will her entire property valued
at between $1,500,000 and $2,000,000,
to him solely, but also that Smart
abused his wlfo and Infant child In a
manner difficult to believe possible In
this age of civilization. Tho petition
declares that Smart was actuated by
the sole motive of acquiring tho Par
ker millions when ho fascinated and
then married Thelma Parker, less
than three years ago, and that follow
ing tho marriage his attitude was con
sistently one of neglect or abuse.
Mrs. Knight has petitioned also for
tho custody of Smart's 19 month old
son, declaring that the father has no
lovo for it, and intimating that he
might even seek to bring about its
end, did he think that the boy would
ever come between him and the for
tune. SIio pointii out that not only
did Smart compcll his wife to neglect
her own relatives in her lifetime and
In her bequests, but also her own son
who was not provided for.
The petition is supplemented by af
fidavits from Dr. F. I Hedemann, ol
Honolulu, Dr. Annie Keith Davenport,
and of Dr. Emma K. Wllllts, of San
Francisco, and a trained nurso named
C. M. Klrkpatrlck, which allege that
Smart insisted on taking his wife to
Paris In the winter season, when
warned that she was tubercular and
must husband her strength against
the coming of her second child, and
told that It was a most dangerous
thing to do under the circumstances.
Smart not only neglected his young
wife, but according to Mrs. Knight,
hastened her end by grief occasioned
by his undue attentions to a trained
nurse, a Miss Hale, picked up while
the family was In Paris.
The petition filed is very volumin
ous. It is stated that tho case will
be directly In tho hands of W. A. Kin
ney, the former well known Honolulu
attorney, who Is to arrive shortly
from Nova Scotia for tho purpose.
Judge Mathewman has taken the
Smart baby from his father pending
the result of tho case, and placed It
In charge of 'Mrs. Mary Ann Lemon.
The will of Mrs. Smart was drawn
up, It Is understood, by Frank K.
Thompson, of Honolulu, and It is un
derstood that Mr. Thompson and his
associate attorneys, will represent
Smart in the pending conflict. Smart
has declared that Mrs. Knight may
havo tho fortune, but that ho wants
Has Much Faith in
Piiholo Homestead Tract
That tho early opening of home
steads near Olinda, Makawao, Maul,
will bo of great benefit to a group of
ambitious Portuguese-Americans Is
the belief of Joseph Anjo, who has
been in Honolulu for two weeks on a
visit. He Is largely responsible for
the new homestead project, In as
much as ho circulated tho original pe
tition on which the land commissioner
has taken action in ordering a survey
of the section.
"Wo first tried to got tho home
steads opened up under Governor
Frear's administration," said Anjo
yesterday. "There is about 2800 acres
of good land there. However, noth
ing was dono then so far as I know.
Later wo tried again. Land Commit,
sloner Tucker has certainly dono ev
erything ho could to help us along
with our project. Two of tho engi
neers of tho department of public
works, Wheeler and McEldowney,
went up this week to survey tho
lands. I hear the land will bo opened
up in 40 and 50 aero lots.

Two Playhouses Now in Pleasant Rivalry
of Giving Money Away-Country Store
and "Real Live Baby" Offered Draw
Patrons, Some Good Things Coming.
There is a war on In tho local mov
ing picture field. The two Wailuku
theaters, aro of course the ,entor of
tho fray, though the Kahului and Pala
play houses have felt tho agitation,
and the Puuncne theater has been
moved to do somo furbishing up, and
announco that it Is a bidder for pop
ular favor In this, part of the island.
It was reported a few weeks ago
that a combination between tho Val
ley Isle corporation and the Wailuku
Orpheum was being considered; but
Manager Pharos of the Orpheum
grew quite peeved over the publica
tion of the rumor, and was very em
phatic in tho dental which ho made
from the stage.
.lust at present, the rivalry between
the local houses has taken the form
of an apparent effort to see which side
can glvo away tho most to their pa
trons. Pharos started it with his
holiday turkey and pig, and later by
his cash prizes to the holders of the
lucky tickets. Now tho Maui Theater
is going tho Orpheum a few better,
and Instead of a $5 gold piece onco u
week, has already passed out several
of tho shiners in one week.
The Orpheum Is now announcing a
"country store" night for next Wed
ncsday, and later that it will give
away a live baby! Pharos wouldn't
say whether or not It is Baby Alma.
What the Maul Theater will do to off
set this remains to be sem.
In tho meantime tho public is en
joying the scrap and seeing some un
usually good pictures. "Martin Eden"
and "Itedemption of David Corson,"

It is uudcrstood that the George
Webb dramatic company, now play
ing In Honolulu, may soon visit Wai
luku. The company is one of the best

The Francis Dainty Company of
trick cyclists and Jugglers is also an
nounced to be here shortly. This ag
gregation is one of the best of its
class on the road. It will show at the
Wailuku Orpheum, and then at a num
ber of other points on Maul.

probably bo asked for an appropria
tion of $150,000 to bo used as a "re
