Money Asked For Homestead Roads
and For Road Up Haleakala
Waiaholo and Crockett Get Salary
Boosting Bills In.
haul's representatives in the le
lslature have not been losing time in
getting a lot of bills introduced,
though from the character of some,
it is safe to assume that they are is
good as dead already.
Nawahine has introduced a rr.eiisure
prohibiting any but citizen fl-hermen
from fishing in any waters of the
territory between the reef and the
shore. He also rakes the credit this
session for springing the old bill to
restore the teaching of the Hawaiian
language In the public schools. He
also introduced a measure changing
the law relating to bonds of public
officials and employes.
Representative Walabolo woild
have the pay of all county and terri
torial laborers boosted on an average
of about 50 per cent, in a bill which
v was introduced by him Immediately
after the opening of the session.
Goodness has Introduced a bill re
pealing the law which provides a
closed season for mullet.
Crockett introduced a measure em
powering the boards of license cm-mit-sioners
to subpoena and examine
witnesses under oath.
. Goodness, by House Bill No. 44,
would change the duties of cour.ty
auditots in a number of particulars.
He also fathered a measure chang'ng
the tenure of office and manner of
electing of supervisors in this crmnty.
Crockett introduced a measure pro
viding for exemption of homester s
from sale on execution or other p o
cess of any court for collection of .ny
debt. He also has a bill in which

district magistrates on Maui, and in
other which boosts the pay of the vat
. ious deputies in the county offices.
, Garcia fathered a bill to change Lie
manner by which county bonds n'av
Makekau would make It unlawful
for anyone to fly unless he gets co
tain permits. He also has a bill re
lating to labor on Sunday, which fc
would like to see pass, and another
relating to public holidays.
Our representaties have also been
busy with resolutions.
Goodness introduced one which was
referred to the finance committee,
. providing for the appropriation of $50,
000 for macadam roads through the
Haiku and Kuiaha homesteads, an
other providing for $15,000 for the Kl
hei road; and a third for $15,000 for

All of these are now in the hands of
the finance committee. ,
Nawahine asked for $15,000 for the
Lahainaluna school, which also went
to the finance committee.
Representative Garcia has three res
olutions to his credit thus far, one to
appropriate $3000 for an office and
storehouse for the chief sanitary ins
pector of Maui, another a request on
. the secretary for copies of the various
session laws for all of the members;
and a third for the appropriation of
f $100,000 for building an automobile

All reports agree that unless 40,000
or so men are killed and twice as
many wounded, there's really nothing
really worth while to report from the
theater of war. Star-Bulletin.
Our Washing Law Worse Than
The official demand that anybody
who does washing of clothes for others
must pay $25 license fee is in line
with many other conglomerate absurd
ities of Hawaiian law. Poor women
who make $2 or $3 a week by taking
in washing to aid in paying the fam
ily grocery bill, must, perforce, be
squeezed for an indiscriminate license
fee that would consume two or three
months' hard earnings.
Schoficld Barracks may have its
laundry troubles, but they are nothing
to the unreasonable tax put on poor
women of various nationalities who
fain would sweat for the dimes to de
fray the cost of a little sugar in their
tea or an occasional change of hair
ribbons on a national holiday. It is a
hold up! The present legislature
should amend the law. The Service.

FARMING AND FARM PROGRESS
Tilings Being Done and Attempted in tbe Agricultural Field.
Hawaiian Coffee at Top.
Hawaiian colfeo played a large part
in that imported Into the U,nited
States last year. Thiee and a half
million pounds were sent from the is
lands to the mainland. Porto Rico sent
only 2,793,000 pounds. The largest
amount imported from any single
place was from Brazil, which sent
726,000,000 pounds out of a total of
1.011,000,000 pounds. Hawaii had the
distinction of receiving the highest
price for its product, getting an aver
age of 13.4 cents per pound as against
10 cents, the average for the product
of foreign countries.

The Territorial Marketing Division
has found a market for the calico
bean, which U raised in considerable
quantity in Kula and other parts of
Maul. About 3 cents per pound Is the
price that may be expected for them.
Oahu pineapple growers are realiz
ing about $25 per ton for fresh pine
apples shipped to the coast. The de
mand at present is excellent.
Speculations on Bean Market.
It Is rumored that a corner in the
bean market is being attempted by
Chicago speculators. It is said that
the bean supply of the European ar
mies is very low and that beans will
be the only article they will have to
depend on. This started a few spec
ulators to buying, who at the present
time have purchased more than 400,-
000 bushels and will take all they can
obtain. To offset interference by Fed
eral agents, due to Interstate Com
merce Laws, these purchases are
stored where they are bought. At the
present time many thousands of dol
lars have been cleared on these beans
RAINFALL WAS GENERAL.
Last Sunday was a rainy day in
Wailuku, Honolulu, Hilo, and most
other parts of the Territory. At Hana
the rain gauge showed 6.76 inches,
which is considered moderately heavy
precipitation, even over at that end of
Maul. The rain caused the postpone
ment of the big peaee pageant in Ho
nolulu, planned for last Saturday, and
Interfered with the festivities of the
Carnival during the first several days
of this week.

Good Idea With Fatal Defect.
The proposal by the island of Ha
waii to forbid district magistrates ad
county attorneys engaging in the pri
vate practice of law sounds like ex
cellent theory, but we doubt that it
will work out in practice. As the mat
ter now stands the salaries of county
attorneys are so low that any lawy.r
capable of holding such a pos ti n r.t
all can make a great deal more money
on the outside. The same thing ap
plies to district magistrates. An at
tempt to cut off the outside business
of these men would naturally result
in supplanting them with persons in
capable of making a living in the prac
tice of law, and to whom the small
Ealary of county attorney, or district
magistrate, would appear as a wind
fall. If the salaries of district magis
trates and county attorneys were ad
vanced to figures sufficient to com
mand the full services of capable men
there would possibly be no seriom ob
jection 1 1 the plan; but under present
con 1 lions it would be merc'y turning
over important public offices to incompetents.-
Trying to Realize Big Figures.
The Nation, a conservative enough
publication, estimates that the Ger
mans alone have lost in the war, up
to February 13, 300,000 killed in bat
tie. The troops who marched through
the streets yesterday are said to have
extended along two miles. There wre
a few more than 6000 men in Hue.
Marching in the same formation, an
army equal to the German dead wou' 1
extend one hundred miles. And th'.Re
are the dead of only one nation out
of the nine engaged in the Europenr.
already, as they are 30 per cent higher
than prices before the war. Italy is

Apparatus for Dairymen and Farmers.
Apparatus for conducting the Bab
cock butterfat test, and also a mech
anical soil tester, has been supplied
lately by the Federal experiment sta
tion to the Kuiaha station. An ex
tensive agricultural library has also
been provided, consisting of a very
large number of experiment station
bulletins and other publications.
Cutting Cost of Feed.
Much Interest will doubtless be a
roused In this Territory by the bul
letin, now being prepared by Prof.
Krauss, director of the Hawaii experi
ment station extension work, on the
subject of feeding working horses.
Prof. Krauss states that he has been
able to cut the cost of feeding heavy
draft animals from over $1 per day to
about 35 cents per day. The fact that
Prof. Krauss stock on his Kuiaha
homestead are in excellent condition,
speaks well for his system. He has
promised to furnish a resume of the
data of his coming bulletin for publi
cation in this column at an early date.
Road Drag Beat Grader.

road in better shape the grader pil

greatest objection la that the drag is
not used often enough. Conftant at
tention is the price of good roads, and
the use of the drag is so inexpensive

not spent in using the grader with
