Haiku Homesteaders Adopt Resolu
tions Urging Legislature to Amend
Corporation Law, Subsidise Can
neries and Establish Land Banks.
At a recent meeting of the Haiku
Fanners' Association, the following
resolutions were adopted after con
siderable discussion. This associa
tion has been working for a co-operative
cannery for somo time, but has
not only been handicapped by diffi
culty in raising the necessary capital,
but by the fact that the present exist
ing corporation laws of tho Territory
are entirely Inadequate and unsuited
to tho ideas of the members. It was
decided that tho organization should
bring somo of these problems to the
attention of tho Incoming legislature,
as well as to nsk tho co-operation and
assistance of fa! lorn' clubs, commer
cial organizations, and others, through
out tho Territory. ,
The resolutions as adopted follow:
Whereas: Wo believe that the Gov
ernment should, by every feasible
means, assist homesteaders and other
citizen farmers in this Territory; and
Whereas: It has been shown by
tho experience of all civilized coun
tries that, under tho conditions that
usually exist between farmer and
manufacturer, tho farmer, as pro
ducer of raw material, does not re
ceive his proper share of the profits
of production; and
Whereas: Tho homesteaders of this
Territory find especial difficulty In
making a decent living, by reason of
distance from markets, high freight
charges, and other conditions pecu
liar to this Territory;
Therefore, Be It Itesolved: That
we, tho Haiku Farmers' Association,
respectfully but urgently request the
coining Legislature to pass laws to
meet tho existing conditions, and
more especially the following:
(1) . A law providing 'or cooper
ative corporations, to be drawn up
along tho line followed by uimllor
laws in force in many of tho States.
(2) . A lav providing for govern
ment assistance, by loans or other
wise, in tho erection of canneries,
Creameries, oi other manufacturing
plants, for tmc'i ,n;uprt of homestead
ers as may wish to manufacture- thoir
(3) . A law providing for the crea
tion of a land bank, fashioned on the
principle of European land banks, by
which farmers may secure long' timo
loans at reasonable rates.
Bo It Futther Resolved: That for
securing the passage of such laws, wo
request tho co-operation and assist
ance of others farmers' associations,
chambers of commerce, and other
public bodies throughout the Islands.
Be It Further Resolved. That a
copy of these resolutions b& sent to
each of tho above mentioned bodies,
to tho principal newspapers of the
Islands, to the College of Hawaii, to
the Federal Experiment Station, and
to tho several members of tho Legls
Central Maui Ministers
Hold Interesting Meeting
On Thursday morning an Interest
ing meeting of the Central Maul Min
isters was held at tho Pnia Portu
guese Church. A good attendants ro
suited in spite of tho had weather.
Rev. A. Craig Bowdlsh dnllvorol a
most intcrosting let-tuio upon "The
Tralnin? of tho Apostlo Paul." Rev,
R. B. Dodgo conducted special work
In tho books of Coloslans and Ephu
sians, and members of tho clasi re
ported on'certain topics. Rev Collins
O. Burnham ol Lalialna 'billYorcd a
lecture on "Sermon ropicu," while
Rev. Howard Harris of Kahulul spoko

tho minister and his -'.lr.
Following a delicious miscU curved

Kalua Out For Chairmanship of Super-
visors-E. ft. Bevins to Make Fight
For County Attorneyship Nomination
Against Case-Many For Supervisors
There arc, or soon will be, at least
fifteen or twenty candidates in tho
field for supervisors. Most of them
show a more or less becoming mod
esty to publicly announcing their as
pirations, but they have them just
the same. John W. Kalua proposes
to give Sam Kalama a race for t'o
chairmanship, as indicated by his an
nouncement published in today's
News; and it is rumored that there
may bo one or two others who will
go after tho same job. Kalua at first
was thought to he after Clem Crow
ell's job in tho Sheriff's office, but
since thinking It over, the chairman
ship of tho board of supervisors ap
peals the more strongly.
Apparently Crowcll's chief oppon
ent will bo Charley Lake, though Ed
gar Morton's name has been mtn
tioned in connection with this office.
Tho only other contest of much in
terest now framing up is that for the
county attoi noyshlp. E. R. Bovlns, It
is authoritatively stated, is to enter
tho lists against D. II. Case for the
Republican nomination. Eugene Mur
phy will doubtless ho the democratic
nominee, but tho real race will un
doubtedly bo in tho primaries.
Dr. J. H.. Raymond, appointed by
tho Governor to fill out tho tcira of
Win. Hennlng, resigned, on the board
of supervisors, will be tho democratic
nominee to succeed himself in all
probability. There Is ecery Indication
that ho will receive a strong measure
of Republican support in the election,
and that ho may continue to fill the
seat ho now holds.
Death of a Kamaaina
Clarence Henry White, scholar, mu
sician, and gotleman, died on Thurs
day morning of this week, in tho Ma

lution resulted in his sponding a con
sldcrablo period in jail in Honolulu,
