Hogs Selling Well Eggs on Upward
Track Vegetables Getting Scarcer
Market Soon in New Quarters.
Island Irian potatoes have been Roll
ing readily at good prices during the
week but the price is likely to drop
shortly due to large crop on Maui and
Kauai, part of which will be sent to
Onions are still plentiful and cheup.
Large quantities on hand which are
Hogs are bringing better prices this
week than have been offered for sev
eral months. Dealers are of the opin
ion that they will go still higher In the
Tomatoes and cucumbers which
were so plentiful a short time ago
are getting scarcer now and bring
better prices. Bell peppers are rather
plantiful and cheap. Large quantities
of this vegetable are being brought, in
Cantaloupes and watermelons are
getting scarcer and prices better.
Eggs advanced one cent a dozen
during the week. The demand for
fresh eggs Is good.
Smooth skinned red pweet potatoes
are in demand. The white skinned
varieties are not so popular. Kauai
sweet potatoes are scarce.
During the coming week the office
of the Marketing Division will be
moved to permanent quarters on Mau
nakea street between King and Queen
streets, which have Just been painted.
By moving the office there will be
more room in the present sales room
and it will not be necessary to block
the sidewalk with crates and boxes.
An architect is at work drawing the
plans for the new sales room and
warehouse and it is expected tr.at it
will be ready for occupancy by the
first of September. It is planned to
have a suitable building large enough
to handle all .kinds of vegetables,
fruits, poultry and general produce
that the Division is likely to have on
hand at one time. A small refrigera
tor plant will be installed for the pro
per storing of butter, cgg3, fruits, etc.
Several sanitary steel poultry i-oopa
will also be a part of the new equip
ment. A. T. LONGLEY, Supt. Ter.
Probably Green Corn
Instead of Cholera
Those who have looked into the
matter are now inclined to believe
that the supposed outbreak of chicken
cholera at Hamakuapoko, which killed
a lot of valuable hens of Mrs. E. E.
Boyum, was some other trouble. Miss
Rose Crook, of Makawao, who has had
much experience with poultry, is con
fident that the disorder in the Boyum
flock wai due to the feeding of green
corn. Miss Crook slates that she has
seen a number of instances similar to
this, which were undoubtedly due to
allowing the birds access to immature
corn, as was true in this present case.
The mortality and the symptoms are
said to strikingly similar to real c1". 1
DEMONSTRATION FARM PLANNED
If the plans of the Hawaii Experi
ment Station can be carried out a
tract of land in the new Makawao
homestead district, soon to be open
ed, will be set aside for the use of
the station as a demonstration farm.
Moreover it is hoped that this farm
may be the first to be developed in
order that the settlers may have ihr
advantage of the experience which
must be gained in opening any new
farm district in the Territory. Land
Commissioner Tucker, who spent last
week on Maui, expressed himsel' in
hearty accord with such a plan.
CROPS SUFFER FROM DROUG T.
Continued dry weather In Makawa'
and Kula is causing much concern
among the farmers of these dUtrl'ts,
whose crops are seriously threatened
An unusually promising stand of corn
in Makawao is already suffering from
the drought, and unless rain comes
soon will probably be practically a
total loss. The same conditions exist
in perhaps lesser degree in the Kui
aha homestead region where all farm
operations are retarded by want of
URGES FRESH FRUIT SHIPMENTS.
Senator Smoot urges the Hawaiian
pineapple growers to go after the
fresh fruit business on the mainland.
Hawaii is the only place where the
best fruit is put into tins, Senator
Smoot points out. Elsewhere, the can
neries handle simply the surplus after
the fresh fruit market has been sup
plied. Thus they get a cheaper pro
duct, and Hawaii is trying to compete
against this kind of product. The Sen
aotr spent over a month in the islands,
and declares his belief that the pine
apple business can be made to approx
imate in importance the sugar in
dustry if it is properly cared for.

Kuialia Farmer Has
Good Crop of Hay
Experiment that Promises Profits for
Homsteaders if Uncertainties Can
J. H. Manning, a Kuiaba homestead
er put in his barn last Tuesday about
two tons of wheat and oat hay which
he produced on less than two acres
of land. The hay was of unusually
good quality, and considerable inter
est has been aroused in the communi
ty over the experiment. Both outs
and wheat headed well, and are un
usually heavy in grain. No difficulty
was experienced in growing either crop
the oats were slightly rusted, this
according to Mr. Manning, and while
the oats were slightly rusted, this
trouble v. as much less than frequently
experienced on the mainland. It is
estimated that the yield of cured hay
was about a ton and a half per acre.
The hay was cut last Saturday after
noon, and thoroughly cured by Tues
day. Prof. Krauss, of the experiment sta
tion, is much interested in the experi
ment and is investigating the feasibi
lity of kiln drying, which Is reported
to have been developed to a high de
gree of perfection by the Department
of Agriculture in Lolusiana. Should
it prove practical, thus eliminating the
danger of loss through uncertain
weather conditions at curing time, Mr.
Krauss believes that hay, at the high
prices always prevailing in the islands
could be made a profitable crop in
many districts. Mr. Manning's hay
was produced in less than three
