The Hawaii Experiment Station,
which has been much interested in
tho experiment of tho farmers in tho
Kula district in buying and selling
cooperatively, has Issued tho follow
ing Interesting data concerning tho
results of the association for the first
Tho Kula Farmers' Cooperative As
sociation has completed the first year
of its existence. It was organized
October 10, 1914. Until February of
this year It was engaged only in sell
ing produce. At that time it under
took the buying of groceries and sup
plies for its members in addition to
handling their crops.
"On September 30th tho books
showed the following statement of Its
affairs. In considering this statement
it Is important to bear in mind that
the aim of the Association has been
to servo its members nt cost that
is ,lo make only enough charges to
cover expenses. Tho Association is
purely cooperative in Us aims nnd

Tho Association has handled about
$5,500 worth of crops at a cost to the
farmers of about $40 less than 1 per
'It has furnished them$2,375 worth
of groceries and supplies, making a
charge of 4 per cent over the cost
of tho goods. The gross profit has
been about $100 and tho expenses in
connection with the furnishing of sup
plies (rent of a storehouse and labor)
$55, so that there has been a net pro
fit on that part of tho work of $45.
"The total expenses of tho Asso
ciation, other than rent and labor,
have been about $170, including its
equipment of crates, stencils, etc., so
it is still somewhat behind, the profits
from nil sources having not yet caught
up with the Initial expenses.
The good which the farmers have
derived from their Association has
been two-fold. First, thoy have got
ten better prices for their crops. Sec
ond, they have bought their supplies
for much less than they could have
gotten them otherwise.
The public, too, has shared in tho
benefits, for where the Association has
been able to sell direct to the con
sumer the price to tho consumer has
been lower than the produce could
have been bought at a store."
Balded for tho fifth flmo in the
past year or two, and for the second
timo in less than" a month, a Chinese
resort on Market street, over the store
room formerly occupied by Endors
auto supply shop, yielded a harvest or
nine Chinamen, last Monday night.
Thoy wore all booked on charge of
gambling, and at tho trial before Dis
trict Magistrate McKay, on Wednes
day morning, they wore fined $25 each.
An appeal was noted by Attorneys
Case and Vincent, who represented
tho alleged gamblers, on points of

doors, and sentries. Tho second door
'was midway. 'of tho stairway, and
when the officers reached It it was
locked. But the raiders were able to
get their fingers beneath the lower
edge of it and thus jerked it from its
hinges. Tills was done so quickly that
there had been no time for the sur
prised Chinese to disposo of tho
"paikau" outfit, which was seized
as evi (fence.
One of the points raised by tho de
fense at the trial, and on which tho np
peal was noted, was that the prose
cution had failed to show that tho
game of pnlkau Is a gambling game,
under the law.
Those in the little party arrested
and fined, were. Ah dice. Foo Tin,

of these wero caught in the raid of

HONOLULU, October 13. Frank L.
Hoogs, former teller of tho Bank of
Hawaii, charged with embezzling
$1000 of his employer's money, and
Louis Abrams, secretary and a di
rector of tho Hawaiian Trust Com
pany, charged with converting to his
own use and benefit a $1000 Kauai
Railway Company bond belonging to
Mrs. Cordelia C. Hartwell. pleaded
guilty before Judge Ashford in tho
circuit court yesterday to the charges
against them. In court with Hoogs
and Abrams was Richard Ramos, the
Roselawn waiter who pleaded guilty
several weeks ago to raising a seven
dollar check to seventy dollars.
Hoogs and Abrams were fined $10(70
each and sentenced to pay tho costs of
court, amounting to three dollars and
fifty cents in each case. Ramos was
sentenced to pay a fine of $200 nnd
tho cost of court and to bo Imprison
ed in tho territorial penitentiary for a
Free After Fines Paid
Tho fines of Hoogs and Abrams
were paid, that of tho former through
his brother, William Hoogs, and that
ol Abrams by this defendant himself.
Tho moment these fines and costs had
been paid and receipted for Hoogs and
Abrani3 wero free men. Ramos told
tho court that ho had no money and
no friends. Besides the outright sen
tence ot a week's Imprisonment Ra
mos will havo to remnin in prison, 200
days in lieu of his fine and then do
threo days and a half more In lieu of
the costs of court. Some friend may
come forward, however, and pay tho
costs, which will let Ramos out of jail
tnreo uays and a half earlier.
It is a coincidence that tho threo
defendants tho two embezzlers and
tho forger had, all left tho Territory
nnd that Hoogs and Ramos were in
California when they wero indicted in
Honolulu by tho territorial grand jury
and it was another coincidence that
all threo pleaded guilty; and, again,
it Is a coincidence that tho threo were
sentenced by Judge Ashford within a
tew minutes of each other.
