MORE BONE LESS FAT
Thirsty Men Before Thirsty Cattle
The above heading summarizes the
basic principle of law on which Judge
Mathewman's decision in the Wnimea
water-right race, between Parker
Ranch and the Territory of Hawaii,
was founded. Human beings, t ho sett
lers on the land, have the first rights
I in a water supply necessary to home
life. It. is a victory for the "common
people," ns against a corporation.
Probably the purpose of the suit was
I not to grab all the water for live
stock and let human beings perish:
I but to have a question of law settled
for all time to come. In such case
the Parker Ranch has dune a public
service; for it clears up the title of
the homesteaders to water to quench
their thirst, from heaven's supply.
The Way To Make Homestead'; Fail
The decision has a bearing, also, in
relation to the much mooted question
of the alleged failure of (Joy. Pink
ham to put through the Kauai home
stead railway connection. If the
Governor is correctly quoted as say
ing: "I am against the government
lands being taken up by homesteaders.
Homsteading is not a success, and
Dever will be a success all the
cane lands of the government should
remain in the hands of the govern
ment and be leased to the sugar plant
ation," it puts him in a most pitiable
light. But, whether or no it is true
that the man whom the United States
Government expects to further in eve
ry way in his power the work of get
ting the people on the soil, as the
only preparation for statehood and for
stability in this Territory swarming
with aliens (and we do not say it is
true that he is a traitor to that trust,
and is playing into the hands of the
"Old Fox") this is undoubtedly true.
An Ill-Stared Star
The only way to make Hawaii fit to
bespangle the "star-spangled banner,
with another star is to dot her hill
slopes with homes, owned by the oc
Vegetables Are Now
High Price Paid For Red Cabbage-
Eggs Still Under 35c Banana
WEEKLY MARKET LETTER.
For one or two days in the early
part of the week the Division tried
to hold eggs at 35 c a dozen whole
sale but due to the large quantities
being received, the price had to be re
duced to 32 c the same as quoted last
week. The word "Oahu" in the egg
quotations is incorrect. It. should
simply read "Select" eggs. In order
to get the price quoted for select
eggs, producers must deliver strictly
fresh, uniform eggs of standard
weight and each egg must be stamped
with the guarantee of the producer.
At the present time with Island eggs
so plentiful it is impossible to get 5 c
a dozen more for stamped eggs than
for ordinary No, 1 Island eggs. Con
sumers are beginning to realize, how
ever, the difference between the two
grades of eggs and are asking for the
stamped eggs. As soon as eggs get
a little scarce it will be possible to
get a few cents more a dozen for
stamped eggs in large quantities.
The Division does not candle eggs
that are stamped and guaranteed by
the producer, which saves him lea
dozen. This saving would amount to
enough in a short time to pay for a
stamp and pad. All eggs not stamped
have to be candled before being sent
out to customers, as it often happens
that producers are not as careful as
they should be to see that only strict
ly fresh eggs are sent to the market.
The man who puts his mime and guar
antee on eggs is going to be more
careful to see that none but the best
are sent to the market, and will natur
ally reap the benefit in dollars and
cents which will come through a rep
utation for supplying a first grade
article, and the advertising which
his stamp will give his product.
The poultry market is in first class
condition and good stock sells readily
at high prices.
Vegetables are getting more plen
tiful and prices are falling. A string
less green pod bean which is being
grown at Waliiawa is making a name
for itself in the Honolulu market,
and it should in time displace all oili
er varieties grown It is absolutely
stringless, free from blight, and has
a very good flavor. These beans
bring a little better price than any
others coming into the market at the
present time. Last week a small
shipment of red cabbage was received
from Honokaa. This was thn best
red cabbage received in the Honolulu
market for several years and brought
6 e a pound.
Alligator pears are getting more
plentiful. Several crates were re
ceived by the last Mauua Loa from
The banana situation is probably
the most serious of any of the mar
keting troubles of the producer at
the present time. Then; is no room
on the boats for carrying a large part
of the present crop and hundreds of
bunches a week will cilher have to
be sold in the local market or allow
ed to rot. Every house holder should
help along as much as he can by buy-
cupants, and producing food supplies
for the whole territory.
Let a foreign Meet blockade us for
a week, and we would have not much
left but empty food tins bearing main
laud brands. We should have bread
riots within the month. The nation
cannot afford to have a state (or even
a territory) as helpless as a young
robin that opens its mouth for the
mother bird to feed it. It would be
an element of lamentable weakness.
It's would be an "ill-starred" flag, if
Hawaii star represented mostly rich
This question of getting the com
mon people of Hawaii on the soil, as
producers of the vital necessities, is
linked together with the Wnimea
question of supplying the homesteads
with water not only for drinking, but
for irrigation and the Kauai question
of transportation facilities.
More Bone Lest Fat
It's by far the biggest question in
Hawaii, in which the whole nation la
concerned. It's a heap bigger issue
'ban a sugar tariff, or war prices of
suar. No stable state can ever be
built (i p here on sugar plantations
alone. The size of plantation divid
ends is a piffling matter compared
wiih a number of prosperous small
landholders; they are the bone and
sinew of a land. The sugar dividends
are only the fat. To make a strong,
self-supporting slale, Hawaii must
have more bono and sinew and less
adipose tissue. Kohala Midget.
Not long ago political reformers
predicted that doing away with the
party conventions would end the era
of deals and trades and double-crosses
and factional brass-knuckling. The
Democrats did away with their con
ventions and their party elections last
Saturday were by the direct primary
roule, villi tlie surprising conse
quence that charges of fraud, trickery
and machine control now till the air.
It is evident that political human na
ture isn't changed with the facility of
new law-making. Star-Bulletin.
POULTRY RAISERS ORGANIZE
In response to the notice in last
weeks' Maui News, a number of poult
ry raisers met Thursday morning at
the office of the Hugh Howell Eng
ineering Company, Wailuku.
Sir. W. J. Pogue, temporary chair
man was authorized to appoint a corn
mil tee of three to draw up articles of
. The foundation of this association Is
of value, in that the members may
co-operate in bettering the class and
conditions of their stock and the sale
of their products, perhaps receiving
more satisfactory treatment at the
hands of tradesmen than they have
in the past ns individuals. Another
meeting will bo held soon.
A special appropriation of $G."i0 was
made by the board of supervisors last
Saturday to the Kula Sanitarium,
$."ii)0 to be used for the construction
of an addition to the nurses' cottage,
and $150 for farming Implements.
The employment of an additional
nurse at the institution has made the
building addition necessary, and the
fact that agriculture is to play an
important part in the sanitarium
work, accounts for the need of farm
LUMBER PRODUCTS REFUSED
Notice has been sent out by the
Matson Navigation Company, the
only concern at present maintaining
any steamers in I lie. Puget Sound
Hawaii service, that until further
notice no consignments of lumber
or furniture will be received from the
Sound for Island ports. The com
pany explains that demand for snaee
for food products and more urgent
ueigius, makes this step necessary.
