The Boys Industrial School, which
has been sending in a first class grade
of Creamery butter Is now unable to
supply the increased demand, and
there is room for other careful butter
makers to get a good price for their
product. Carelessly made butter, how
ever, is very hard to dispose of at any
All grades of chickens in good con
dition are meeting a ready sale at
good prices. The market Is over
stocked with MuBcovy ducks, however,
at the present time .
Maui Red beans have advanced as
well as the small white beans, due to
tho shortage of mainland stock.
Small yellow corn is selling as high
as $43.00 delivered on the wharf. All
producers who have corn to ship
should do so at once. Due to the ar
rival of Irish potatoes by the "Matson
la" the price of Island potatoes has
dropped, and is likely to go Btlll lower.
Alligator pears are still cheap and
the market is flooded with bananas
due to lack of transportation. Lunes
are scarce and bring good prices.
Recently there has been a great
number of undersized thin pigs sent
to the market from the other Inlands.
Producers who ship their pigs to the
market at less than 125 or 150 lbs. are
taking a chance of having them sold
for much less than the market price.
Butchers cannot buy small hogs to be
sold over the block. A hog must
weigh dressed at leapt 125 lbs. for
best results . Farmers who are rend
ing their hops to the market half
grown, should hold them on their
farms to get tl.ein in good condition
and up to standard weight.

getting shorter and shorter and prices
are soaring. It will p;iy farmers and
stock raisers to consider raising

GETTING ACTION ON THE
DEADLY WEAPON EVIL
Less hixity in the registration of
deadly weapons is promised by the
municipal authorities, since a cam
paign of publicity has drawn atten
tion to the chronic failure to observe
the law. But even the most careful
observance of the present law Is not
enough, for weapons now are not reg
istered until after they are purchased.
What is needed is a territory-wide
statute providing that before any per
son can buy a deadly weapon, he must
secure from tho police or sheriff's de
partment a permit to carry such wea
pon. After this, registration will be
easy. Tho only feasible way to keep
dangerous weapons out of irresposible
hands is to make the permit to carry
such weapons a prerequisite of the
The Star-Bulletin understands that
at the instance of Captain of Detect
ives McDuffie an ordinance is now
being prepared to cover these points.
This ordinance will answer the pur
pose until tho legislature meets next
spring, when a territorial statute
should be passed rigidly regulating
I he purchase and carrying of deadly
weapons in all countles.-Star-Bulletin.
Some big men that is, men who
are powers in finance and who are to
be reckoned among our leaders reas.
why is there so much antipathy
expressed towards the really benefic
ial legislation that the Government
has passed In the last four years?
We do not speak as Democrats, but
as Americans. We have the spectacle
of a Honolulu paper going into convul
sions over the currency reform bill
and the rural credits bill .not to men
tion a great many others . They cry
direfully that In another four years
of Wilson, even such a thing as a free
port for Honolulu is a possibility.
The Rural Credits Dill, which has
just been signed and made into a law
by President Wilson .passed both of
the houses of Congress almost over
whelmingly. There wero 295 for, to
10 against the bill in the lower house
and last year when a similar measure
was before the Senate It was passed
with but five dissenting votes . So
that It is not a Democratic measure,
excepting that Democrats were its
sponsors and will rightly reap the
This bill, which Is for the purpose
of lending money on agricultural lands
provides for the establishment of
twelve banks at given points In the
United States, that have not as yet
been designated. These banks will be
organized and capitalized by the gov
ernment. The money is not to be
loaned direct, but Farmers' Loan
Associations must be formed. Ten
persons can organize such an associa
tion, and they can then apply to the
bank of their district. Abundant
safeguards in the way of appraisal
for value and inspection of land are
provided. Of course these associa
tions must be formed of land owners
and not persons who have not a clear
title to the land on which they are
are settled. Only six percent interest
will be charged on these loans and
they can run for as long as 36 years.
Even so conservative an organ as
the Nation, a paper by no means
friendly to the administration, calls
this bill a wise attempt to adapt ap.
proved European practise to American
conditions. A few weeks ago the Ad
vertiser was puzzling its head over
the lack of assistance for small farm
ers in Hawaii. Why do they now con
demn this measure? O Luso.
Prof. Bryan of the College of Ha
waii says that he Is convinced that Ko
hala is as old geographically as Kauai.
In this he agrees with Prof. Hitchcock,
who maintains that Kohala was a sep
arate Island, built up by its own vol
canoes the Kohala Mountains ages
before Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa ev
er peeped. It's a separate island still
whenever it rains. Kohala Midget..

Once more has tho proposition of
establishing a chain of hotels through
out the group been suggested and this
time it would appear as if the people
behind the project mean business.
The proposition Is an excellent one
and one that would benefit the whole
community greatly, for there would
surely be Increased tourist travel to
these islands if the intending visitor
could secure a coupon ticket on the
mainland that would cover his trans
portation and hotel problem from
start to finish . The ownership of a
chain of hotels by one big company
would solve the inter-island travel pro
position, because then there would bo
no attempt made In Honolulu or else
where by any hotel keeper to make
people stay longer at his hostelry than
they really need to see the sights, for
the visitor would, when leaving, be
headed for another branch of the place
he was staying at. That fart would
help out a lot and there would be
very few tourists visiting Honolulu
who would not also come to Hilo and

Work Of The Civic Convention
Based upon the work of the Civic
Convention Committee of Hilo which
met last Friday, the indications for
the greatest convention of this kind
ever held in the Territory are exceed,
ingly strong in behalf of the conven
tion which will be held here from
September 21 to 25 next. The fine
preliminary work accomplished by tho
chairman and secretary of the commit
tee are a guarantee that no effort will
be spared to make this coming con
vention the most comprehensive In
every way for the good of the Terri
tory as a whole.
According to the tentative program
prepared it can be seen that while
the entertainment of the guests of the
city have been far from neglected,
the practical work of the convention
has been accentuated, and It is the in
tention of the city. to so arrange things
that concrete and practical results will
follow, other than the passage of res
olutions. We would suggest that tho work of
the Civic Convention which is to be
held here next September does not
end when It adjourns for another year
but that strong committees be ap
pointed by the convention to see that
whatever is determined upon at its
sessions relative to betterments in the
Territory is brought to fruition.
There has been too much self-congratulations,
high-flown resolutions and a
general patting of each other on the
backs heretofore . The Civic Conven
tion should be a weapon by which the
civic organizations of public spirited
men of this Territory shall be able to
accomplish some real reform or bet
terments, Industrially, socially, and
otherwise. Hilo Tribune.
Instructor-Inspector Of Guard Reslgna
After serving efficiently since Janu
ary 1 of this year. Col. Charles S. Lin
coln, U. S. A. inspector-instructor of
the National Guard of Hawaii, tender
ed his resignation as colonel of the 1st
Infantry, N. G. H., and has requested
the Hawaiian department that he be
relieved as inspector-instructor.
Both Col. Lincoln and Brig.-Gen.
Samuel I. Johnson, commanding the
National Guard of Hawaii, declare that
the only reason for the former's res.
ignatlon is that he is soon to bo pro
moted from captain to major of the
regular army, under the new National
Defense Act, but reports from outside
sources are persistent that the colon
el's action is the result of disagree
ment with General Johnson's alleged
political activities. O Luso.
