! OUR ISLAND CONTEMPORARIES I
One View of Pineapple Problem.'
Our esteemed friend, (ho Honolulu
Advertiser, would have the pineapple
runners assist the grower in the
mooted projert of marketing fresh
pines on the mainland, aungesting thnt
the latter scheme, if successfully car
ried throuph, may prove an adver
tisement for Hawaiian pineapples gen
erally and consequently of value to
the packers. Well, maybe so: but wp
have our "doots." Fresh pineapples
could be plneed on the market for
short seasons only a year. The effect
misht be a'l right, and it might also
result in dissatisfaction with the can
ned product, which now enjoys n most
e?!ellent. reputation. We would like
see (he experiment, of shipping
fresh pines to the mainland tried out,
but on a small scale at first, careful
note being taken of the effect. Cer
tainly we cannot, at this stage of the
game, do anything that might impair
the demand for canned pineapples.
In the last six months we averaged,
h"re in Hawaii about nine dollars a
head in taxes for every man, woman
and child. If we don't get nine dol
lars worth of police protection,
schools justice, roads, hospitals, brass
bands, etc., It's our own whoop! Ko
rioston teachers are coming to see
if Hawaii is worth a hill of beans.
On the Other Islands
Will War On Headache Cures.
A. W. Hansen, federal food com
missioner for the Territory, is plan
ning to wage war upon the so-called
headache cures which are being sold
throughout the Islands, and which, if
taken to excess, are dangerous to life.
Not long ago a Ceath occurred on
Kauai from poisoning due to an over
dose of acetanilide.
Safety First Crusade Started.
The Honolulu chamber of commerce
has inaugurated a "safety first" move
ment, designed to reduce the number
of accidents to children and orientals
from street trailic. The people are
appealed to to aid in impressing upon
immature minds the danger of playing
or heedless walking upon the streets
Says Filipinos Should Govern,
Emanuel Earnshaw, resident com
missioner to Congress from the Philip
pine Islands, while in Honolulu last
week on his way home from Washing
ton, declared unequivocally that the
Filipinos are now fully capable of gov
erning themselves. Mr. Earnshaw al
so state that he will push a measure
in Congress at the next session de
signed to prevent the exportation of
laborers from the Philippines.
China Appeals For Aid.
C. K. Ai, manager of the City Mill
Company, Honolulu, received a cable
gram from South China last Friday,
appealing for funds to relieve the dis
tress occasioned by the recent ter
rific storms in that part of China. It
is said ,that 100,000 lives were lost In
the floods, and that suffering is in
tense. The Honolulu Chinese have or
ganized to collect money to help re
lieve the distressed.
Dr. Wadman's New Crusade.
Dr. Wadman is heading a movement
started in Honolulu to prevent the
showing of objectionable moving pic
tures. "The Hypocrites," in which
a nude woman represents "Truth", is
the first that a fight is being made
against. A large crowd of prominent
citizens viewed the film as a censor
board, and voted to let it run. Dr
Wadman urges the public not to at
tend. Complaints Against Inter-Island Not
After an exhaustive hearing before
the Public Utilities board, the Japa-
nese editors who had maintained that
deck passengers on the Inter-Island
boats are badly treated, decided that
the fiery editorials had no good basis
in fact. Only two witnesses were
present, and neither of them gave any
testimony to show that boat crews
were brutal or abusive, as had been
. al'eged. The chief complaint was that
sleeping deck passengers were fre
quently stepped over by members of
the crew while going about their du
ties. Plan To Reduce Pineapple Waste.
By extracting the juice from the
waste materials, which now amount to
GO percent of the entire fruit, freezing
this juice, and then throwing out the
greater part of the water it contains,
by centrifugal method, A. W. Hansen,
federal food commissioner and chem
ist, believes that it will be possible
to produce a valuable concentrated
syrup which will largely replace the
Fiipar now needed in canning, or fur
, nish a delicious beverage. Mr. Han
sen has worked out his plan on a lab
oratory scale successfully. The juice
retains all its delicacy of flavor under
the treatment, and the waste is re
duced from CO percent to less than
10 per cent.
Record Crops in Hilo District.
The biggest crops of sugar ever har
vested in the Hilo district will be the
result of this season's work, accord
ing to George 11. Robertson, of C.
I!rcer or Company. The big increase
is due largely to an ideal growing
Hi'ason throughout. Honomu planta
tion will have an output of about 9700
tons, Pepi i keo about 12,000, and Ono-
niea, about 20,000.
The New Promotion Committee Mem
ber. Arthur F. Wall, whose appointment
as a member of the Promotion Com
mittee was announced yesterday, is a
happy choloe. He was twice director
of Hawaii's annual Carnival and each
time made the events successful,
though both times he was compelled
to work with funds in later years con
sidered absolutely inadequate. Those
who were associated with Mr. Wall
In the Carnivals of 1911 and 1912 will
remember the results he secured with
a minimum of expenditure. He Is a
believer in systematic publicity for
the islands and in stimulating tourist
trade. Both by reason of personal in
terest in promotion work and the id.'as
and activity to make his interest
count, he will be a valuable member.
What's the Matter With Kohala?
Dr. Wadman has stirred up a hor
net's nest by criticizing the liquor sys
tem of the Island of Maul. By the
way, we would feel much interested if
Dr. Wadman would turn his search
light over in the direction of Kohala,
Hawaii, and tell us in his Inimitable
way what he finds there. Garden Is

EXTRA H. C. &. S. DIVIDENDS.
Advices from San Francisco state
that the directorate of Hawaiian Com
mercial has decided to declare on Aug
ust 20, an extra dividend of 50 cents
a share, payable on September 5 to
stock or record July 25. This will be
in addition to the regular disburse
ment and will make the second extra
dividend paid this year. Another extra
disbursement, and possibly two, of 50
cents a share will follow later in the
A shipment of eight hundred hogs is
reported to be on the way to Hono

Yakima Herald says they are being
shipped there to he "fed on cannery

Convicts Help Fresh Air Fund.
Seventeen dollars and seventy cents
was the amount raised in the Oahu
prison last week, and sent to J. A.
Rath, of Palama Settlement, to be
used in sending mothers and children
of the tenements to the Fresh-Air
Camp at Waialua beach.
Repeal of Shipping Law Advocated.
Congress must either repeal the ob
noxious Seamen's Act, on account of
which in all likelihood the American
shipping on the Pacific will be put out
of business after next October, or else
Hawaii must work to have the restric
tion against traveling on foreign own
ed ships removed. This is the atti
tude of many of the members of the
Honolulu chamber of commerce, which
will discuss the matter at its August
meeting. With the Pacific Mail with
drawing its boats, and the Oceanic
company curtailing its service, Ha
waii is facing a serious situation.
To Study Labor Conditions.
Dr. Victor S. Clark will arrive from
Washington in the China today, to con
duct an investigation of labor condi
tion in Hawaii for the United States
department of labor. He has twice
before conducted these investigations,
five and ten years ago.
Reviving Publicity Work.
The Hawaii promotion committee
has decided to revive its press news
service, discontinued some years ago
on account of lack of funds. By means
of the bureau a tremendous amount
of the best kind of advertising for the
Islands was secured at the actual cost
of preparing and mailing the matter.
Makino Suit Compromised.
The $50,000 damage suit filed by
Fred Makino against the sugar plant
ers' association has been discontinued
through a settlement made out of
court. The basis of tho settlement has
not been made public. The suit was
the outgrowth of the big Japanese lab
orers' Btrike in 1909, during which Ma
kino, a Japanese editor and leader of
the strikers, was sent to Jail. Editor
S. Sheba, who narrowly escaped with
his life at the hands of a would-be
assassin, is not satisfied with the com
promise, on account of the cloud which
he sayg is left upon him and his mo

Over Thousand Die
Excursion Boat Still Moored to Wharf
at Time Passengers Drowned Be
tween Decks Like Rats.
CHICAGO. July 26. More than 1000
persons, men, women and children,
Were drowned on Saturday morning
when the excursion steamer Eastland
suddenly capsized while still moored
to the wharf. The excursion crowd of
over 2500 were either thrown Into
the water or imprisoned below her
decks and drowned like rats in a trap.
The vessel has not been raised, and
although over 910 bodies have been re
covered, it is certain that, there are
many more still to be reached.
The crowd consisted of employees
of the Western Electric Company and
their families, starting on a week end
holiday. In many instances entire
families have been wiped out. Offi
cers of the company which owned the
vessel have been arrested. The po
lice declare the federal inspectors are
responsible throueh having passed as
safe an unstable vessel.
