More Backing for
Judge Stuart certainly seems to
have started something when ho took
a crack at the professional reputation
of Dr, McConkey, in the course of a
judicial ruling. Not only has the ter
ritorial medical society jumped quick

but his friends from all over the ter
ritory have been heard from In vary
Ing degrees of indignation.
During the past week a memorial or
potition has been in circulation on this
Island, and being very widely signed.
It recites something of the record of
Dr. McConkey In the community, and
expresses the full faith, In his ability
and professional integrity, of the sign
ers. At a large gathering of the mem
bers of the Haiku Farmers' Assocla'

signed by practically every person
Works for Small

Marketing Facilities Promised.
Editor "Maui News":
It may interest your readers to
know something .of the work done on
my recent trip to Honolulu in the
Interests or the small farmers.
The cooperative association bill (H.
B. 08) had been tabled not because of
any opposition to the intents of the
bill but because of objectionable feat
ures in It as it was drawn, and be
cause of a feeling that cooperative
associations could organize under the
present laws, and no new law was
necessary. The latter contention is
true, and yet it seemed to mo wise to
have a special provision In the law
relative to cooperative associations,
as has been done in many of the
states, for tho purpose of defining, In
law, the principles of business done on
the cooperative plan, and of restrict
ing the use of the word "coopentive"
lo those corporations doing bujnes?
that way. Mr. Tavares told mo to
consult with Mr. Alexander Lindsay,
Jr., a3 he had been employed to as
sist in the framing of bilU, so
Wcstgatc, Mr. Lindsay and I had sev
eral conferences and drew up another
bill, which was Introduced by Mr. Ta
vares (H. B. 290). This bill restricts
the use of tho word "cooperative";
provides that no person shall own
more than 10 per cent of tho stock;
that voting shall bo "one man one
vote" Instead of one vote for each
share of stock owned; It provides for
the safe Investment of icservo funds;
for the division of the profits nmong
those-doing business with tho associa
tion and the employees according to
tho cooperative plan, after dividends,
not exceeding G per cent, havo been
paid on the stock; it limits the debts
that such associations may contract:
provides thrt the books shall be kept
in a manner to bo approved by the
bank examiner; and finally limits the
government charges to a five dollar
fee at the time of Incorporation and
ono dollar fee annually in connection
with tho filing of the annual exhibit.
Prospect For Kula Road.
The Kcokea homesteaders mauka of
the present road have no way to get
out to tho road. A road has been
surveyed through these homesteads,
but never opened. I took this mat tu
lip with Land Commissioner Tucker
and found that there is at present
$2100 available to build this road and
will be about $4800 altogether when
the homesteads are all paid ior. Mr.
Tucker said that the land office was
prepared to enter into an agreement
with the county to havo the ?2100
now available used to open this road.
I have since taken this matter up with
Mr. Howell and hope that the agree
ment with the land office will soon be
made and the work done.
Better Marketing Facilities.
The marketing of our crops was
foremost In my mind on this trip. I
took up with Mr. Longley tho troubles
we have had with the Division, the
principal one "being the slowness in
making returns. Mr. Longley explain
ed in detail the system they were
using In accounting for consignments.
We.discussed a possible change in the
bookkeeping, which we thought wo ;ltl
not prevent an account being over
looked and would automatically re
mind tho bookkeeper at stated Inter
vals that the account should have at
tention. This change has been put
into effect. It will not enable th
Division to pay tho accounts any m i-e
promptly nothing but tho l evolving
iund will accomplish that but it will
prevent an account being overlooked
ind no returns or statements made for
months as has sometimes occurred.
Army Wants Island Produce.
In connection with marketing I also
took up with the quartermaster's de
partment tho question of selling our
produce to the army. I found both
Col. Cheatham and Major Caso very
kindly inclined towards buying island
produce. They aro somewhat hamp
ered by the army regulations from le
vlatlng out of the beaten paths In the
matter of buying supplies, but they
expressed a willingness to do all in
their power to buy from us. They of
fered to try to have Maui red beans
put on tho official list of supplies
which they are authorized to buy if
I would submit analysis and samples,
and they suggested that I lot them
know when we had anything to dis
pose of and they would seo what
could bo done as to purchasing it.
Loans to Farmers Possible.
I enquired into tho possibilities of
the small farmer obtaining money at
a more reasonable rate of Interest and
for longer terms than ho can get it
at present. I found no encourage
mon for the hope that government
money could bo obtained, either di
rectly or indirectly for this purpose.
I did And encouragement for the be
lief that If tho matter is gone about
rightly prlvato capital will provide
such funds at 6 per cent. Tho method
I outlined to Mr. C. H. Cooko, and
which ho said ha thought would ap
peal to prlvato capital may be briefly
fctated as follows: The farmers ot a
given section will organlzo and Incor
porate presumably under tho cooper
ative association act. This association
will then issue debenture bonds beam
ing G per cent interest, and these prl
vato capital will buy. Tho bonds will
bo secured by all tho assets of the as
sociation, tho principal assets beinij
the mortgages or other security which
tho association takes from each mem
ber who borrows from it. Tho asso
ciation will then lend tho money Jo
Its members, tho usual rules as to
security being followed, at a rate of
Interest sufficiently above six per cent
so that tho expenses of the assocla'
tlon will bo met and tho loan itself
gradually paid off. Thus, suppose the
association woro to chargo eight per
cent, six would go to pay tho bond
jniorest, ono for the expenses of the

Marketing Division, who says that ar

the division to supply a large Chicago
concern with the fruit during next
At Haiku, Maul, especially good
crops of rosello have been grown for
a number of years. There has never
been too much rain to spoil the crops,
as was the case at Nahiku recently.
W. I. Wells, ono of the pioneer ro
sclle men of Maul, says that the fruit
may be grown at a profit If sold at
the price tho Chicago company offered
a year ago, when it first investigated
the possibilities of tho industry in Ha
waii. A section of Kaupo, Maul, was
put out to the fruit last year, the re
port being that it did very well. There
are several places on Oahu, especially
at Wahlawa, whero the fruit has been
grown with success.
Mr. Longley says that tho Chicago
company with which ho now is In com
munication, uses roscllo valued at
from $50,000 to $100,000 each year. He
adds that an endeavor will be made to
keep tho production here witiun the
amount needed by the Chicago com
pany, as It Is tho only company that
uses it In any great quantity.
Chinese and Cubs
Lead in Second Series
The second series of the Junior Lea
gue opened with a boom last Sunday.
The Halkus and Chinese were first
put on the diamond and both fought
lo a finish. The score resulted in
favor of the Chinese S to 5.
The Halkus had a new man in the
box by the name of Kim, but he was
later replaced by Paoa and Lei.
Tho Chinese depended upon Chong
to lead them and their choice was
The second game was between tho
Waikapus and Cubs, the honors going
to the latter by the score of 0 to 5.
This game was exciting until the
3rd inning, when Kala was touched
fairly and 7 runs were scored. De
Mcllo then replaced Kala and he held
his opponents to two runs thereafter.
The Cubs sent Hansen to do the
hurling and his work was fine.
Tomorrow's first game will be bet
ween the Waikapus and Haikus, while
the Cubs and Chinese will light for
the honors In the second game.
H. Meyer umpired tho games and
his decisions were up to tho standard.
The scores by Innings were as fol

Chicken Colony Plan.
I examined into the land available
in Kula for a homestead colony, and
believe I found tho right place for
a poultry village a miniature Peia

Cane Growers' Poor Showing.
But ono public hearing on tho rela
tion of the small planter to the mill
was held while I was In Honolulu. I
attended this and was much disap
pointed at the poor showing made by
tho small growers. Yet I think it Is
evident that the small planters have
good ground for complaint against the
present contract offered by Olaa. The
factors entering Into tho relation of
I ho small grower to the mill are so
exceedingly complicated that tho ono
fact in the matter that seems perfect
ly plain Is that tho whole system that
exists at present Is bad, and needs
making over from tho bottom up.
Somo simple arrangement under
which the planter would deliver his
cane to tho mill, and the mill receive
a proportion of the sugar for its ser
vices, seems to bo badly needed. Then
if the planter wanted to use the mill
flume or railroad ho could pay for tho
transportation as such, and if ho want
ed the mill to market his product for
him ho coulu make arrangementswith
it to that end.
As a result of this trip, I am more
Impressed than before (if that bo pos
slble) with ono point the need of or
ganization among the small farmers:
organization In each community and
an affiliation of all such organizations.
To securo proper representation at
the capltol when that is needed: In
marketing our products; in buying our
supplies; in securing money for our
business needs; In securing proper
amustments between ourselves nnd
those with whom we do business in
all these efforts we are almost h61p
less until wo are well organized. We
shall command neither respect, attcn
tlon to our needs, nor tho confidence
of tho public until wo are.

Second Shipment of
Fresh Pines Made Today
By tho Manoa, sailing today from
Kaluilul, will go forward tho second
shipment of Maul fresh pineapples for
tho Coast market. As In tho first
shipment made two weeks ago, but a
slnglo ton of fruit Is being shipped.
Returns have not been received from
this first shipment, but aro expected
before tho end of next week, and if
so will bo reported at the meeting of
tho Kulaha association next Satur
Tho Marketing Division reports tho
possibilities for fresh pineapple ship
ments to the mainland exceedingly
bright. With the Improved shipping
facilities now available, losses are
small, and returns havo been excel
lent. Tho division has received two
Inquiries from dealers in New York
City regarding tho possibility of sha
ping Hawaiian pineapples to them in
cold storage by way of San Francisco
and the Panama Canal. A small trial
shipment will probably bo made In the
near future. Hawaiian plnenpples, if
carefully selected and packed, should
reach New York In good condition.
Shipments to San Francisco and Port
land continue to bring good returns.
Moio care must bo given to selecting
and handling the fruit by the produc
ers to prevent tho small losses.
