t OUR ISLAND CONTEMPORARIES 1
Co-operative sugar mills have been
in existence In Queensland, Australia,
for ninny years and Hip cane farmers
have thrived where before they were,
in the popular parlance of the day,
up against it good and hard. The
co-opterative mills caused many an
acre of cane land in the home of
sweat to be retained for the industry
which is about the only one that can
thrive in certain districts. There was
not enough inducement for large sug
ar corporations to erect mills where
the cane growers held small patches
of land that yielded, on an average,
but a poor return of sugar per acre.
It was in districts like these that co
operative mills did best and proved
to bo the meal tickets of the industri
ous white planter. In the districts
where there were very large areas
of cane land, the glnnt Colonial Sugar
Company had mills that took care of
nearly all the cane raised. Still, there
were nlso government controlled mills
erected In certain districts and many
planters patronized them.
The revived proposition to establish
a co-operative mill at. Laupahoehoe on
this island brings the subject up once
more as the promoters of that con
cern are reported to be very confident
as to the benfit. to be attained by the
homesteaders who join in the move
ment to have a mill of their own.
There is a difference, however, be
tween the Laupahoehoe scheme and
that of co-operative mills in Queens
land. In the local instance there are
mills that can take care of all the cane
raised in the districts near the prop
osed site of the new one. It remains
to be seen how the scheme will work
out and, while one may say that the
"more the merrier" is the best slogan,
there may be questions as to labor
that will not work out as well aa is
expected by the men behind the mill
Co-operative anything is an appeal
ing proposition and, to the man on
Ihe street, seems to be an ideal propo
sition. To be part and parcel of the
mill that grinds your own cane and
to be. represented on the board of
directors of the concern is most entic
ing, to be sure, but there are many
other things to be considered about
the whole question. Hawaii Herald.
The Hawaiian ukulele, or miniature
guitar, is all the rage on the main
land. The San Francisco Examiner
recently boosted it along in a Wheel
an cartoon, wherein "Pop" teases
"son" for sporting a ukulele, insinuat
ing that the otherwise virtuous youth
will be affecting a wristwatch next.
But soon "Pop" gets to fiddling with
the little instrument and falls for its
peculiar charm. If we could only in
troduce enough ukuleles among the
Mexicans, we would soon have their
cactusesque country pacified, for when
once a person becomes enamored of
the daffy little plaything, he or she
is good for little else. Somebody
should send one to the Kaiser. Nero
fiddling while Rome burned has noth
ing on Wilhclm ukulele-ing while Ver
dun hesitates. Music hath charms to
soothe the savage breaRt, but, verily,
the ukulele's perpetual plunka-plunk
would undermine the most militaristic
mind that ever tore up a scrap of
paper in the interests of kultur. The
THE MAUI "SWAP"
Speaking of the Raymond-Pall
"swap" if It was a swap on Maui
under which Dr. J. H. Raymond has
been appointed to the Maul board of
supervisors, the Advertiser this morn
The power of appointment of po
lice magistrates was voted to him
(the governor) by a Republican legis
lature because it had confidence in
his good faith," and also comments
that he was expected not to play
politics with the judiciary.
This Is not quite correct. The si
tuation that confronted the Republican
legislature was the possibility that
President Wilson mbf appoint
Democrat as chief justice who would
do nothing but play politics with the
judiciary. Hence Republican war
horses conceived the plan of remov
ing the appointment of district magis
trates from the jurisdiction of the
chief justice and putting it in the
jurisdiction of the governor. Had the
legislature known that Justice Robert
son would be reappointed, the action
would never have beejn -taken. t
was not that the legislature loved
Governor Pinkham the more, but trust
ed the future less. It might have
been conjenctured long ago that the
governor was rewarding the "deserv
ing Democrats" of his faction of the
party. The effect of the Maui swap
if it was a swap will be to get a
man on the board who, whatever the
fight against him by certain people of
Maul, ought to make a first-class
supervisor. As to playing patronage
politics, it is evident that the McCand-
less faction of the Democratic party
has no monopoly on this art. Star
Bulletin. The Chamber of Commerce is re
taining George McK. McClellan to do
Delegate Kuhio's work In Washington,
which will allow the delegate to at
tend the Republican national conven
tion and come home again to watch
the progress of the Liliuokalani Trust
suit. As a non-resident representative,
our delegate ranks with the best.
We heartily approve of the Portu
gucse plan of making war. All there
is to It is to declare war then sit
back and say mean things about the
other fellow. It is much cheaper in
money and munitions, to say nothing
of the saving in lives. Garden Island.
