Kula Farmers Like
Business with Army
Satisfactory Returns Contract Plans
on Foot for Further Co-Operative
Work Onions Find No Market.
WAIAKOA. June 24. The Kula
Farmers' Cooperative Association re
ceived last week from the army a
check for $125 for 25 begs of white
beans. This Is the first transaction
that the Association has had with the
army, and from the standpoint of the
Association It was thoroughly satis
facotry In every way. The quarter
master has made no comment on the
beans, so presumably they were saris
factory to the army. These brans were
carefully cleaned and graded, packed
according to 'the army specifications,
and delivered on the wharf at Hono
lulu, June 1. The money was received
In Kula on June 20, a most gratifying
promptness being shown by the army
in payment. There was no commis
sion, marketing charge or cartage to
pay after the beans reached Honolulu.
This was a saving to the farmer of
twenty seven cents a bag over what
lie v-ould have gotten had the Market
ing Division sold the beans at the
same price 5cents a pound. The As
sociation most earnestly wishes to do
more business with the array, and It
is going to spare no effort to do so.
The Association holds a meeting on
July 4, when a start will be made of
keeping records, on a set of cards
Kept by the Association, of the plant
ings and crops on hand of the mem
bers. The Association cannot go about
the selling of the crops so as to sell
them to the best advantage If it does
not know what it will have to sell
until the crop is ready to be sold. The
present onion crop well Illustrates
this. The army could use all the
onions now in Kula, but the bid on
them must be made before the fif
teenth of the month previous to deli
very. No bid was made because at
the time the bid should have been
made the Association did not know it
would be called upon to dispose of the
crop of 300 bags during July that it
now knows will be available.
OUR ISLAND CONTEMPORARIES
What sort of a ransom could a raid
ing vessel of any nationality demand
and get from the city of Hilo should
the United States become involved in
war with some nation that might have
armed steamers on the high seas and
within striking distance of Hawaii?
All that would be needed would be a
couple of machine guns, a six-pounder
and a desperate crew. The vessel
could pump a few shells into the town
and then demand that a ransom in
coin be sent out In a sampan. Hawaii
Co-Operating With Promotion Commit
It must be already understood, but
there is no harm in repeating that
Hilo s own effort at promotion work
in Honolulu is not in any sense based
upon hostility towards the Hawaii Pro
motion Committee, but is on the con
trary planned with a view to co-oper
ating with that committee. From the
first the discussion of the plan to ap
point a special Hilo agent in Honolulu
has been based upon the proposition
that if the claims of this island upon
tourists' attention were specially pre
sented, Hilo would get a larger share
of the tourist trade. It is no criticism
of the general committee to Bay that
it does not specially present Hawaii's
claims. As a matter of fact It has
no right to do bo. It is a general, ter
ritorial body, and must if it keeps
within the lines of its duty, avoid spe
cial efforts in behalf of any island or
district. It has to be impartial. Hilo
business men are of the opinion that
it will pay them ot have their own
man, to work for the special interests
of their island, and they are going
ahead with that proposition. The basis
of all the promotion work, however,
is that which the general Promotion
Committee, now a Territorial body,
does, and Hilo's representative will
work with that body. Hilo Tribune.
An Ill-Advised Move.
We understand that a petition, em
anating from Cenmn-Amerlcau sour
ces, is being circii'suea at Honolulu
and perhaps on Lome of the other is
lands, the P'iri'i t c' vhWb is to urge
upon the American gowrnmi nt a po i
cy of peace toward Germany. The
Idea Is to get as many signatures as
possible, of different nationalities, to
this petition and to submit the same
to Washington as representing the
sentiments of Hawaii.
The plan is ill-advised.
Just at this stage the American peo
ple are practically a unit In the belief
that the policy of the American gov
ernment toward Germany is a policy
of peace; and they are unitedly and
earnestly behind the President In his
efforts to obtain just protection for
American lives and property, and to
preserve peace. It would come as one
of the most remarkablo incidents of
the times should a petition arrive at
Washington from Hawaii, expressing
it as the opinion of this little territory
that Uncle Sara should behave and be
The American people today feel that

serve its own neutrality and to deal

One dealer is in the market for COO
or 300 young pigs between 20 and !0
pounds for fattening and will pay from

them. The Division would like to
hear from fanners having pigs of this
size for tale.
A large shipment of watermelons
were received from Maui and are sell
ing well. They are unusually large,
some weighing forty pounds.
Onions are still a drug on the mar
ket The Division has a large quan
tity on hand wbich it seems impos
sible to dispose of. The loss from
spoilage in the Bermuda onion in Ha
waii is very heavy and for this reason
it would probably be better to grow
some better keeping variety.
String beans are scarce and the
price has Jumped during the past
week. Other vegetables remain about
the usual price. Papaias are very
plentiful and the price is low.
Large quantities of Irish potatoes
have been reported from Maui and Ka
uai, samples received from these is
lands by the Division show the pota
toes to be very good.
Several letters regarding the grow
ing and manufacture of roselle have
been received from manufacturers in
the States. It is expected that a mar
ket can be found for this product in
considerable quantities in 1516.

countries of Europe, has been griev
ously sinned against. They are full of
desire for peace, and always have
been; but what they want and demand
is to be treated fairly and decently.
It occurs to us that any petiiion
bearing upon the subject of peacei'ul
ness, emanating from the Hawaiian
Islands, should be addressed to Euro
pean countries, and not to the United
States. It would be a fine thing, for
instan e, if our German-American citi
zens would get up a memorial to Em
peror William, assuring him that they
know positively that America is striv
ing in every honorable way for peace
with German, and that a Just and con
siderate policy on the part of Germany
would meet with a ready and hearty
response on this side of the Atlantic.
A petition of that hort would not prove
a boomerang and might, indeed, be
of great value in bringing about the
end which Americans really desire.
SUPREME COURT REVERSES
The supreme court last week hand
ed down an opinion sustaining the ap
peal of Chisi Nishimura, who was
charged before the district magistrate
of Makawao with having sold liquor
without a license, and who was com
mitted to answer before the circuit
court after the prosecution had refus
ed to introduce any evidence. The
supreme court has remaned the cie
to the district court of Makawao, with
instructions to discharge the defend
ant. This is one of a number of similar
cases appealed from the district
courts by Attorney Eugene Murphy.
County Attorney Case states that the
decision does not bar the prosecution
in taking up the cases again on a new
charge, and that this will be done.
QUICK DISPATCH OF SCHOONER.

Ericksen, which reached liana with
merchandise, Friday of last week, at
