ners for the present year is not yet
known, aitnougn mere is eviuence
that it may bo better than it has
been. There Is evidence that the
pack will not show the increase this
vear that it has in the past. Many
small growers on Onhu have been
put out of business by practical in

a considerable acreage has been al
lowed for this reason to grow 10

Canners Want Fruit.
In nrrl or in Kllmnlnte nlantinc. the
canning companies are now advanc
ing money to homesteaders and
others, a thing that has not been done
for several years. This Is true on
Oahu, and on Maui ttie HaiKU rrun

to finance small growers willing to
plant. A hui composed or a pari 01
the homesteaders in the Kulaha tract
has undertaken to plant GO acres, and
has been allowed advances to the
amount of $100 per acre for the pur-
r,rn with whnt nlantinc is
being done, however, the outlook for
the Maui pack for tne next, two m
three vears is that it will be smaller
than in the past Much of the old
lands have deteriorateu so mucu ui
no attempt is being made to grow
pineapples on them.
The price paid the growers last sea
son in the Haiku section was $11.25
ffat flnco fruit. This is
probably several dollars below the
average cost 01 prouueuuu, uuu
counts for the indiiference of growers
to extend their acreage. The new
prices will be announced in May, out
at present the packers are unwilling
inHioto what thpse mav be. The
price of canned truit nas auvan.reu
somewhat during the year, and con
sequently many believe that prices for
fruit will be better.
The low prices of various Califor
nia fruits at the canneries, during the
past year, has been the subject of
much discutsion among coast grow
ers, and the following taken from the
Doi Pros, hnn enniioh in common

Ten Dollars Less Per Ton.
Ten dollars less per ton to tne
grower for fruit does not make an
iota of difference In price to the con
sumer, so does not increase consump
tion. This was emphasized at the
rmit r.rmunr' Convention bv both
Vernon Campbell and Jas. Madison.
Mr. Campbell shows that tne -regular

canned fruit passes to the consumer,

that they could undeiiako this move
ment with every assurance or suc
cess. These depots could be estab
lished throughout a certain selected
district which coui'l be extended as
rapidly as desired. The California
producer would ship direct to these
lepots, eliminating estra ireigm nam

California producer to obtain tne
greatest possible distribution at the

the various associations would re
duce the cost or this oistriouting sys

which now contronis us.
Another Job. "If you can increase

OUR ISLAND CONTEMPORARIES
Too Many Firearms.
The report of the county clerk to
thp governor shows that in the
period between July 20 and Decem
ber 31 firearms to the extraordinary
number of 600 were sold on the is
land ot Kauai. A very large num
ber of the weapons were revolvers.
This is an alarming state of affairs,
and calls for rigid investigation by

were so many pistols purchased by
private parties of this small com
munity in so short a time?

six months they have been acquired
by wholesale here.
We hope that the police department
will call for the list of purchasers of
all these firearms, go over it careful

Dr. Doremu8 Scudder to Wed.
Announcement was made last Fri
day of the engagement of Dr. Dore
mus Scudder, pastor of the Central
Union Church, of Honolulu, and Mis
Mabel Ethelyn Bosher, principal of
Kawaiahao Seminary. The marriage
will take place January 25th.
The Christmas Paradise.
The holiday number of the Paradise
of the Pacific is a gem of the printer's
art. It is probable that the Paradise
company has excelled its own best
efforts in this number, which is
another way of saying that it is the
finest thing In the way of a magazine
that has ever been produced in the
Islands. The cover design in colors,
is a magnifleient red hibiscus on a
black background, with border of gold.
It is rich and elegant. The many
color cuts in the book are also all
works of real art.
Nurses' Training School.
The Queen's hospital is to have a
nurses' training department and the
new branch will begin its work about
the middle of this month. There will
probably be a class of about 50 pro
bationers within a short time. The
school will be in charge of Miss A. H.
Collins, as superintendent.
Timekeeper Short $20,000
Hans Eeichelt, assistant bookkeeper
and time clerk for the Llhue planta
tion, on Kauai, who was arrested last
week on a charge of embezzlement,
Is said to be short in the neighbor
hood of $20,000. The amount had
been obtained by padding the pay
rolls during the last six years. It is
claimed that nearly $7,000 of the
amount was taken during the past

"Oh, Bill," she said to the young

He then cites tho national adver
tising campaign of the Associated
Raisin Co. who are spending $150,
000 per year or $1.50 per ton. Dur
ing the 10 months ending Nov. 1,
1914, they sold 53,000 25-pound
boxes of bulk seeded raisins. Dur
ing the corresponding ten months of
1915 they sold 350.80G boxes. If
by spending $150,000 we can in
crease the value of our raisins V
cent per pound, we will have our
money back with an extra dollar per
ton for interest on it, besides having
started bakeries to using raisins and
people to eating them, who had never
used them before.
Now if you increase consumption
so you can increase the price per
pound one cent, you bring to the
growers 2V4 million dollars but you
don't change the retail price one
"The very first man you want to
eliminate Is tho speculator, we
have absolutely eliminated him out
of the raisin business. He is the
biggest enemy of both producer and
consumer, as ho serves no purpose
but his own."
On the Other. Islands
From today, nineteen States will be
classed in the Prohibition column, the
last eight named in the list having
closed up their saloons and breweries

Virginia, Washington, Oregon, Colo

and South Carolina.
Seven other Slates and one Terri
tory will vote on the Prohibition Is
sue this year. These are: Vermont
in March, and South Dakota. Califor
nia, Nebraska, Montana, Michigan,
Idaho and Alaska at the regular elec

havoc with the nerves of timid pas

a scantily clad man hurried from his
stateroom and dashed toward the up
