Can't Pull Together So Whole Pine
apple Industry Totters Serious
Admission of Poor Business Sense
Grower Suffers Most.
A. T. Longley, :uiperlntendont :r the
Territorial Marketing Division de
clares that the pineapple canning com
panies are not giving tho small grow
ers a fair deal in the prices which
they arc offering for the fruit, Various
representatives of the canpcr,s have
tome forward with statements deny
ing this. Mr. Longley points out that
the packers are paying oaliu growers
by $7 per ton for first-class fruit, or
about half of what it costs to pro
duce it, while at tho same time they
themselves aro planting largo acre
ages of new fruit.
"Tho biggest sufferers at presejnt
aro the homesteaders at Alca. The
best pi ice offered so far, they tell roe,
Is $7 a ton, which is conceded by all
the canneries to bo far below the cost
of production," Mr. Longley is quoted
"I have also heard that on Maui
some of tho horaostcaders are getting
$11.251 ton for No. 1 fruit, and $8 a
ton for No. 2. Others arc getting as
high as $13 a ton for No. 1, I havo
'If the pineapple canneries really
havo an over-supply, as they claim, it
Is not likely that they themselves
would be planting an additional 1000
acres "at Wahiawa this year at a cost
of at least $10 per ton."
Packers Say "Overproduction.-'
The packers declare that It is sim
ply a Question of supply and demand,
and that there is a largo overproduc
tion to account for the low prices ot
tered. Japanese on Oahu are said to
havo 18,000 tons of fruit coming off
this season, equivalent to nearly a
half million cases, none of which has
been contracted for.
One canner interviewed on tho sub
ject, while denying that there is any
desire to Hurt tho small grower, ad
mitted that the packers havo been led
into a system of throat-cutting among
themselves by tho mainland jobbers.
Ho stated that for a number of years
the Hawaiian canners havo been slash
ing prices in order to move their
packs, regardless of tho industry in
general. At present they cannot get
together on any basis for advertising
or protection. The prlco cutting has
not helped greatly, because the con
sumer has not profited by tho slash
inc. One canner stated that the very uesi
grade of Hawaiian canned pines are
now selling at tho .factory at eleven
cents per tin, or less than halt the
price at which It sold eighteen mouths
The consumer still has to pay thirty
five cents for this grade. Some re
tailers charced forty cents two years
aco and these have cut their shelf
prices five cents per tin, but it re
tailers had mot the canners' cut by a
proportionate reduction this grade
would bo moving at twenty or twenty-
flee cents instead ol stagnation ot the
same old thlrty-flvo cent price.
Have Their Backs to the Wall.
It is claimed that the Hawaiian
packers havo now reached a point
where they can no longer reccdo; that
their backs aro to the wall, and that
they must henceforth fight for their
existence. If they arc to survive, it
is declared that they must get togoth
er and fight to control Iheir own bus!
LUMBER SLUMPS AGAIN.
' Effective June 1, tho ICchulul Rail
road has issued a new lumber price
list announcing another cut oi 25 cents
per M. on nor'west lumbor of nil

When installed tho scales will bo

A charge of $1 is to be made for tho

Hawalis 2 1
Puunencs 0 "3
Last Sunday's ball game resulted in
favor of the Paia team to the tune of
5 to 3; the Colts meeting their first
defeat till sseason. It was a lively
gamo from stait to nish and at times
tho excitement was Intense. .
Cunimlngs' boys were first to tally,
scoring a single In the second. The
'alas in the third innig scored thioe,
ifler n two-bagger by C. Robinson and
a homer by brother Foster Robinon.
They also scored two in tho sixth
while the Hawalls scored one ench in
the sixth and eighth.
Little "Gink" Cunimlngs, perhaps
the smallest big lengue player in the
Territory, made a great hit with the
fans, being credited with two put outs
and four assists, and n stolon base,
lie was certainly the Idol of the fans,
who cheered him with every play.
Wm. Cockett, tho Hawaii catcher,
showed some remarkable pegging,
catching no less than four attempts
to steal second.
As was pointed out in our last Issue,
this gives Pala tho lead, they having
played ono gamo less. Tomorrow's
name will bo between the Puuncnes
and Hawalis, and should the latter win.
they will tie tho Palas for first place
Paschoal's bunch Is confident of put-
Ing it over tho Colts and will play
to win. It remains to bo seon whether
they have Improved any during their
two weeks rest.

Will They Let Bal Go?
Tho report is current that Gomes
Paschoal is threatening to disband the
Puunene team unless he Is permitted
to strengthen his forces by taking on
BUI Bal or Helmo Meyer. This report
is probably not correct, since tho Puu
neno bunch of sportsmen are not of
tho quitter class. However, It Is prob
able that a meeting of the Maul Ath
letic Association will bo held shortly
for tho purpose of considering tho
matter of permitting Bal to play with
tho sugar men this season. Tho Puu

On tho other hand tho Palas have

It is current rumor that they have

Want To Play Stanford.
Thero is a very strong desire on tho
part of local players to see the Stan
ford team, now in Honolulu, on the
local diamond. Some of tho officers
of tho association aro hesitant In ac
cepting tho offer of the Vnrsity boys
to como on the 26th and 27th foi their
oxponses, for tho reason that tho as
sociation is in the hole from the last
trip of tho Maul boys to Honolulu, and
thero is doubt as to how tho Stanfords
would pull. Thoso favoring tho idea
claim that the expense may bo prac
tically limited to tho cost ot steamer
fares, by entertaining tho playors in
private homes; which plan has tho
further advantago that the college
boys would doubtless enjoy their trip
much moro than if horded together in
Furthermore thero is overy reason
to bellevo that a local team can bo
gotton together that can trim tho
coast visitors, which is a valuablo con
sideration from a box offlco stand
point. Tho Stanfords have already
boon defeated by the St. Louis (11 to

Then Turns Shortgun On Himself
A Sickening Tragedy.
Because Sum! Mnnta, a young mar
led woman persistently declined to
favor his amorous advances, Gensnku
Koido, a well known Walluku Japa
nese, killed the woman and then blow
out his own brains with a idiot gri
Tho double tragedy occurred about 9
o'clock last Tuesday morning at tho
camp of a tunnel gang working on a
water project abovo Waiheo. Tho
murdered woman was tho wife of
Mansukichl Manta, ono of tho labor
ers on tho tunnel job, who was cook
ing for the gang, and the murderer
was boss of the contract.
On plea of illness, Koido did not go
out with tho other four men on Tues
day. Some time later a number of
shots wore heard from the direction
of tho .camp, but no attention was
paid to them as It was presumed that
Koido was shooting birds, as ho was
in tho habit of doing. About 10 o'clock
Joaqulm Sanko, a water tender of the
Walluku plantation, In passing the
camp, called to tho woman, whom he
know, and receiving no reply, ap
proached and was, horrified to find the
bodies of both Mrs. Manta and Koido
lying near togthcr on tho ground, both
In terribly mutilated condition.
Koido had evidently shot tho Io
nian several times at close range,
powder burns showing on her cloth
ing, while the heavy charge of shot
had torn gaping holes almost through
her body. The murderer had then de
liberately lain upon the ground, cock
ed both barrels of his gun, and, with
tho muzzlo at his mouth had discharg
ed one barrel with his toe. Tho en
tire top of his head was torn off, pre
senting a sickening spectacle.
The dead woman had lived in Wal
luku for tho past five or ten years and
was well liked by thoso who knew
her. She had complained on several
occasions to friends of Koldo's unwel
come attentions, but as the job on
which her husband was working was
nearlng completion, sho had decided
to remain until it was finished. She
was 30 years of age. Koido was
about 38, and unmarried.
Is Artistic Success
Large Audience Delighted By Pretty
Pastoral Production Given in the
Last Saturday evening, May 29th,
the girls of Maunaolu gave their an
nual concert on tho seminary grounds
at Pala. Perfect weather conditions,
tho largo attendanco of central Maui
people, and tho artistic rendering of
the pretty, quaint Indian muelc, all
contributed toward making the enter
tainment a groat success.
The program consisted of the pro
duction of "Tho Feast of tho Red
Corn," an American Indian operetta
In two acts, by Paul Bliss.
The maidens of tho Wanta tribe
of Indians onco overy year used to
resort to a secluded spot to celebrate,
the Feast of tho Red Corn. Tho one
"who during the feast finds tho first
red ear expresses the dearest wish to
tho sorceress (an old squaw of the
trlbo) who then calls upon tho gods
of the Four Winds to give a sign that
the wish will bo grantee.
This year Queen Woeda Wanta
joins tho maidens, finds the lucky red
,ear, and has her dearest "wish, that,of
hearing that her husband who is ugh
ing in tho north is still alive granted.
The play was given in the open di
rectly in front of the Seminary build
ing with tho beautiful West Maul
mountains in the distance forming a
most striking and romantic back
ground for tho little wooded glen in
which tho drama took place. The
glen was formed by a high crescent-
shaped hedgo insldo of which were
placed two wigwams, slacks of corn,
and a camp-firo a row of electric
liglits directly abovo the hedge furn
isked tho light except during the
Tho characters of the operetta wero
tho Queen, tho old squaw, Impee
Light (tho queen's sister.) and a cho
rus of thirty or moro Indian maidens
all attired in pretty Indian cost
umes. Two of the most attratclvo
dances wero entitled: "Danco of tho
Ghosts of Dead Trees" and "Tho
Flaming Arrow Dance."
The voices of tho girls seemed os
pcclally sweet and adapted to express
tho harmony or tho weird Indian rcvs
lc. Miss Alice Bond, tho music tnch
er of tho school, received many com
pllments for her training of the sir
studonts as evidenced by the musical
performance of tho ovenlng.
