Keen Fight on For
Kula Bean Contract
Good Demand Apparent For Coming
Crop of Red Beans in Which
Mauka District Seems Likely to
WAIAKOA, March 3. During tho
past week wo have had another ex
ample, in Kula, of the way the farmer
suffers from lack of cooperation,
and from the avarice of those who are
regardless of his Interests so long as
their own pocketbooks can be fatten
ed. Maul red beans have sold all the
past winter for ?4 a bag in Honolulu.
Practically all of the crop has been
bought by one buyer who seems to
have a good market for these beans.
This buyW wished to be certain of
the next crop, so the Marketing Divi
sion put him in touch with tho ship
pers In Kula to tho end that lib might
be able to arrange for having a large
crop grown and bo certain as to the
prlco in advance in short have a crop
grown on contract.
The Kula Farmers' Cooperative As
sociation was anxious to secure this
contract for the Kula farmers. To
that end it made the buyer as low a
figure as it felt was just to the farm
er. By eliminating the Honolulu mar
keting charges twenty cents is saved
in each bag. In strict justice this
should be divided by buyer and seller,
but the K. F. C. A. offered to give the
buyer tz wholo of this saving, and
to furnish tho beaHls ?3.S0 E;nolulu,
or ?3.G7 Kahului, which is the same
thing. Allowing seven cents for the
bag, twenty cents for the hauling
from Kula, and ten cents for the treas
ury of tho Association -the farmer
would have received $3.30 net.
The profit for the Association, which
would have amounted to nearly $100,
would have been Invested In an en
gine and farming mill, so that we
could turn out a cleaner and better
An individual in Kula figuring that
he could get the beans from the farm
er for less money than this, but be
low this figure and got the contract.
Now If tho buyer say his way clear
to buy these beans at ?4, he certainly
could see his way clear if he got them
for twenty cents less, or, if ho ships
to tho coast,' for thirty-three cents
less, since he can ship direct to the
Coast from Kahului. This is especial
ly true since all indications pomt to
foods being worth as much, If not
more, five months from now than they
are now. So strongly does the agent
of tho Association feel that it will In
a mistake for the farmers to contract
to grow these beans for less than
J3.30 that he has Issued the fyllowint.'
"February 27. 1915.
To the members of the Kula Farmers'
My negotiations with a buyer In
Honolulu to secure a contraot for 1000
bags of red beans at ?3.67 a bag f. o. b.
Kahului have failed because another
person in Kula 'has offered to furnish
the beans at a lower figure.
If I had been able to secure this
contract the farmer would have re
ceived $3.30 a bag net, tho Associa
tion furnishing the bag free.
"I shall now try to get a contract
with someone else. It is my belief
that we can sell our red beans from
this next crop for a figure That will
not tho farmer $3.30. Tho price of
all foods is tending to rise, rather
than lower, because of tho war in Eu
rope, and 1 feel that beans will sell
at fully as good a prlco as we have
gotten for this last crop. Tho farm
ers wio have sold their red beans
through tho Association have received
$3.27 or more.
"I therefore advise all of our mem
bers not to agree to sell their red
beans from the crop now being plant
ed for less than $3.a0 a bag net, as
I believe tho Association can sell
them so that the farmer will receivo
at least that much.

Maui Team Gets
Tie Broken When All-Chinese With
draw Claim in Favor of Local Boys
Chinese Leaving Islands Prevents
Return Game Being Played.
The Carnival cup comes to Maui!
As forecast In the Maul News last
week, the Chinese and All Maul
teams, In the Carnival series played
In Honolulu, tied for first place, and
the decision was put up to a special
committee to decide between tho two
as to which should get the cup. But
before this decision could bo made,
however, the Chinese withdrew their
claim, allowing tho handsome trophy
to come to tho Maul visitors.
Tho action of the Chinese players
is .appreciated for its generosity. Also
it saves the Judges from an uncom
fortable task, though thero is strong
reason to believe that Maul would
have won tho decision just the same.
Trip Financial Failure.
As will be remembered, Paschoal's
boys went to Honolulu on their own
responsibility, and without any guar
antee. And they came back about $50
In the hole. Tho scries was not a
profitable one from any standpoint,
and had it not been for tho extra
game played with the 25th Infantry,
which netted Maul about $75, the trip
would have been decldQdly disastrous.
Our boys niado altogether from the
four games played, only a little over
Honolulu sports writers lay the
blame for the poor attendance at the
Carnival games, to the soreness of
the fans against the Athletic Park
management over the trouble it made
last fall when the Venice team from
the Coast played In Honolulu.
There was some talk that the Chi
neso of Honolulu would visit Maul to
play off the tie but the Chinese play
ers, divided In two teams, are leaving
for the Coast and tho Orient for long
series and this is out of tho question.
Bill to fio Over
School Board Would Relinquish Con
trol of Reform Schools Want
Users of School Buildings to Clean
The bill providing for pensions for
school teachers will not be pushed at
this session of the legislature, but will
be pushed for the 1917 sesf.Ion, accord
ing to the decision of the commis
sioners of public instruction at their
meeting in Honolulu last Monday. It
was brought out that the Maui and
Hawaii teachers have mot had oppor
tunity to become familiar with the
plan, and further time will therefore
be given for all to understand what
The board decided to ask the legis
lature to place tho control of the
boys' and girls' industrial schools In
the hands of a special committee or
commission, thus relieving Hie regu
lar department from this responsibili
ty. It seems to bo generally thought
that those two institutions will fare
better under a board that has no other
work to consider.
The legislature will also bo asked
to amend the law providing for the
use of school buildings for general
meeting purposes, by providing that
users of these buildings shall be re
quired to clean up the building after
they have finished with them.
TAX BOARD NEXT WEEK.
The Territorial Board of Tax Equal
ization will meet in Honolulu all next
week for tho purpose of going over

HOW MUCH SHOULD IT GIVE7
When a newspaper gives you a lot
of free advertising in order to boom
some concert or entertainment In
which you aro interested, keep track
of tho lines that are printed week by
week and multiply that number by lhe
regular advertising rates of tho paper,
says the Northficld (Minn.) News.
Compare the results with the actual
money value of any favor that you get
from any other business concern.
Then take Into consideration the fact
that advertising and circulation aic
the only two things that a newspaper
has to sell. Now, in these days of
higher prices, ho wmuch do you th'nk
It ought to give away?
