Eggs Scarce And
Marketing Division Will. Sell Poor
Birds on Wharf. Good Demand
August 30, 1915.
During the week egga and poultry
have remained at about the same
prices as Inst week. Eggs are very
scarce and the demand is good.
Commencing about the middle of
September (he division wi'.l have for
sale a steady supply of crate fattened
green ducks eleven weeks old and
weighing about four pounds. Orders
will be taken for these ducks in ad
vance In order that our customers may
get them in the best of condition on
the day they arrive. The potiltryman
who is raising them has about 750
birds to put on the market between
now and Christmas. Young Muscovy
ducks are much better table birds
than the ordinary mud duck and
should sell well.
The division receives a very high
percentage of poor chickens which
have to be sold at low prices In order
to move them at all. If the farmers
would only learn that It. pays to pen
up their fowls and fatten them before
sending them to the market the divi
sion could work up a large trade in
Island poultry and stop the large im
portations from the mainland. A lot
of new sanitary chicken crates have
been ordered from the mainland. As
soon as these arrive the division will
be in much better condition to handle
poultry consignments than at present,
Hereafter, when consignments of poor
chickens are received they will be sold
on the wharf to the highest bidder as
they only get thinner when cooped up
in the storeroom and spoil the trade
of the shippers who send in good
Watermelons are selling well at
good prices. The melon fly has not
troubled the growers of melons this
year as it has in the past.
The contract for the new building
has been let and it is hoped that It
will be ready by the first of December.
With Avocado Culture
J. Edgar Higgins, horticulturist of
the Hawaii experiment station, paid
particular attention to the avocado n-
dustry in Southern California on this
recent vacation trip to the Pacific
Coats. He visited a number of bear
ing orchards and hew plantings and
looked Into the marketing conditions
and especially the packing and cold
storage of this fruit.
"The alligator pear has come to
stay, in the California citrus belt,
Mr. Higgins said. "The orchardists
down there have imported a number
of frost-proof varieties from the Mex
ican plateau that bear really excel
lent fruit, stringless and with a fine
nutty flavor. They are laying out
large orchards of avocados with every
indication that they are going to make
a success of the new venture."
California Inside the Bars.
He said that if the embargo oh Ha';
waiian pears could be lifted this Ter
ritory might be able to regain the
market that was cut off when the quar
antine against the Mediterranean fruit-
fly was established.
There is, however, no likelihood of
this happening unless a satisfactory
rrult ny preventative is discovered
The. California growers have a big
advantage. They are inside the quar
antine bars while Hawaii is outside
Mr. Higgins visited the great, ac
climatization gardens of the United
States department of agriculture at
Chico and saw a number of new fruits
and ornamentals which look promising
tor Hawaii. He also attended the an
nual meeting of the American Asso
ciation for the advancement of science
recently held at San Francisco.
The principal attraction of the week
at the Maui theatres was the Molokai
chorus of singers, who have been well
received all around. They played at
Lahaina Wednesday night and at the
Valley Isle Theatre on Thursday night.
and were loudly applauded throughout
Tonight they will sine at the Kahu-
lul Lyceum and tomorrow night at the
fata Orpheum. The prices to theso
performances will be: reserved seats,
50 cts., and general admission, 25 cts.
Marcelle and two other vaudeville
performers are now on Maui and will
show at the Valley Isle Monday and
Tuesday of next week.
The feature film "Alias Jimmy Val
entine" failed to arrive on Maul this
week but will surely be on the boards
during next week.
At the Kahului Lyceum special feat
ures in addition to the regular pro
gram will be shown during the com
STARK DIVORCE SUIT NEXT
The suit for divorce filed by Mrs.
Annie Mulvaney Stark against her
husband Frank Stark, of Lahaina, will
come before Judge Edings, of the Sec
ond Circuit Court for hearing next
Thursday morning. Mrs. Stark filed
her libel In Honolulu some weeks ago
through Frear, Prosser & Anderson,
attorneys, who have since withdrawn
from the case. Mr. Stark is repre
sented by Thompson, Milverton &

The case promises to be somewhat
sensational. A Mrs. Alice Patton, of
Honolulu, is mentioned in the libels
in connection with the charges.

The singers of Molokai were greet
ed by a good sized and enthusiastic
audience on Thursday evening at the
Valley Isle Theatre, and the ardor in
creased rather than abated as the pro
gram proceeded. The choir was very
generous in the number of selection

The two songs which were the Ath
erton banner-winners, showed the re
sults of splendid training by the lead
er, David Kalaau. A warble rendered
by a chorus of six under the leadership
of Mr. Kahiapo was well received and
a number by a chorus of ten under H.
J. K. Nawahine deserves much credit.
Several soprano solos by Miss Olive
Mitchell, of liana, with chorus accom
paniment, were exceptionally well
done. Miss Mitchell having a true
voice of sweet quality, especially in
the upper tones. Her brother, W.
Mitchell played several selections on
the guitar (steel rendition) which
were very pleasing and occasioned re
C. V. Lufkin contributed a cornet
solo, accompanied by Mrs. J. C. VII
liers, which was one of the features
of the evening, especially appreciated
by the audience.
The members of the chorus nho
came to Maui (about one-half the ori
ginal chorus) were: Leader, David
Ka'.aau; Misses Clara Nakl, Leila ni

"Mother" Coan, Aged
Mission Worker, Dies
Mrs. Lydia Bingham Coan, widow of
the celebrated missionary. Ilex. Titus
Coan, died Bhortly before noon on last
Tuesday at her home on Alexander
street, Honolulu. Death resulted from
the after effects of an attack of pneu
monia. Mrs. Coan was 80 years of age, and
was the first principal of Kawaiahao
Seminary. She celebrated her eighti
eth birthday anniversary last Christ
mas. She was born in Honolulu on
December 25, 1834, and was the young
est child of Rev. and Mrs. Hiram
Bingham, who came to the Islands for
the first time in 1820.
She received her education in the
United States and, after teaching in
the East for some years returned to
Hawaii in 1867, to become principal
of the Kawaiahao female seminary.
She held this position for six years.
On October 13, 1873, she married
Rev. Titus Coan, who died in Hilo in
December, 1882. Since 1883, Mrs. Coan
has lived continuously in Honolulu.
.The news of Mrs. Coan's death will
come as a severe shock to Honolulans,
especially to kamaainas. In spite of
her advanced age she took an active
part in mission and church work, and
was known and loved for her kindness
The funeral was held on Wednes
day afternoon and was largely attend
ed. The ashes were interred at the
Kawaiahao church cemetery.
Talk of Postponing Civic
It Is reported that the Kauai Cham
ber of Commerce is considering post
poning the Fourth Annual Civic Con
vention, on account of misunderstand
ing caused by the limiting of the num
ber of delegates to 100. The Hawaii
promotion committee, at its meeting
this week, strongly opposed this idea.
The object in postponing the conven
tion would have been to make arrange
ments whereby the apportionment
could be increased many more desiring
to att"nd than the 100 who can be ac
commodated. The Trail and Mountain Club has
found a way to get around the dilll
culty. It has been decided by tho club
to take a tent to Kauai with a com
plete camping outfit. In this manner
as many of the club as desire can go.
The Kauai Chamber of Commerce had
allowed the club only one delegcte.
It is reported that the Kauai ("ham
ber of Commerce plans to pay for ex
penses of the 100 delegates and feels
that it must put a limitation on the
number because of the expense that
will fall upon Us membership.
