Island eggs have advanced 5 cents
during the week and are scarce at 60
cents. Young poultry in good condit
ion with the exception of Muscovy
ducks are in good demand. Producers
would make money by penning up
their poultry and putting on a little
extra weight before sending it to
market. It Is difficult to Se'.l poor
poultry even at half the price of good
Tomatoes are now a little more ple
ntiful and green peppers have dropped
one cent during the week. There is
a good demand for island corn and
beans. Island potatoes are also want
ed in large quantities at about $1.60 a

Hawaii but it is difficult to get the
dealers to pay what it is worth. A

Grapes are bringing good prices
now. The last few shipments which
the Division has received have been

to be Rhipped a long distance. Grapes
should bo shipped in fruit basket hold-

Causes Bad Affray
Children Fight, Then Mothers, After
Which Heads Of Family Try To
Settle Dispute With Knife And
Razor Both Men In Hospital
To the mischievous prank of a small
boy is attributed the cause of a serious
cutting affray which landed two fath
ers at the hospital with near-fatal
cuts and gashes last Sunday evening.
The boy is the son of Julio Santos, a
Spaniard, who lives near the Mormon
church across Happy Valley.
Late last Sunday afternoon the boy
was sent up the slope from his home
after some water. On his way he am
used himself by tossing stones upon
the roof of a neighbor Antone Garcia.a
One of the stones struck a small
Garcia baby and an older sister climb
ed the hill to repulHe the attack. The
boy and the girl were soon mixed in
a fight, which called forth the mothers
of (lie children.
When the women met on the hill
they immediately began berating each
other and each others children. In
another moment they were pulling
hair and scratching in the most ap
proved feminine fashion. After a ten
minute round the scrap was called a
draw and the two families dispersed to
About 7 o'c'oek the same evening
the heads of the two families returned
home and heard of the trouble. Santos
went at once to the home of Garcia
and in a few moments both men were
fighting. When neighbors finally part
ed them ft was found that Garcia had
been stabbed three times, in the face,
back and stomach. His wife had also
received a slash on the back. Santo's
wounds, caused by a razor, consisted
of an eight inch gash on his right side.
Both men were removed to the
hospUal, where Dr. St. Sure found It
necessary to perform an operation to
save the life of Santos. The men will
recover, after which each will be
charged with assault with a deadly

BRITISH BOYCOTT IN HAWAII
A very interesting Btory comes from
Honolulu of the application of the
British boycott to enterprises in these
Islands. An American owned sugar
plantation negotiated a deal with an
other plantation which is principally
owned by Americans of German par
entage. .The British consul at Honolu
lu, hearing of this matter, addressed a
letter to the owners of the former in
which he stated that inasmuch as they
had chosen to do business with the
enemies of Great Britain (or words
to that effect), a shipment of sugar
bags about to be made from India
would be stopped and that they (the
American owned Bugar plantation)
had been placed on the British black
list. It is understood that the matter
will be taken up with the government
at Washington without delay.
Views may-differ, according to na
tional prejudices, as to the right of
Great Britain to enforce a boycott on
citizens Qf neutral countries having
business dealings with subjects of
enemy nations; but in app'.ying the
boycott on account of a deal between
American citizens, merely because
some of them happen to be of German
parentage, all legitimate or even reas
onable bounds have been overstepped.
We do not believe that, if the facts
aro fully understood at Washington,
the United Stales government will
stand for this interference for a
minute. Garden Island.
Polo Team Leaves
For Oahu Game
The Maul nn1r nlnvprn loft hv iho
Claudine Wednesday evening for Ho
nolulu where they are to play the
Oahu team tomorrow. The polo ponies
had been sent to Honolulu a week
Speculation among the Maul play
ers as to the outcome of the Maui
Oahu contest is not wholly optimistic.
The Maui players admit that the Oahu
team has fully as good horses this
year as have the local men and they
oeueve mere is very little difference
in the skill of the two sets of players.
With the two teams admittedly about
equally matched, it is believed that
tomorrow's game will bo one of the
exciting matches of the series.
On the following Saturday the Maui
players'' will meet the Kauai team
and the week afterward the Army
four. The Maul-Army match Is ex
pected to be the star polo exhibition
of the series. The Army team it is
said has managed to get some of the
best polo players in the whole United
States Army transferred to Oahu, and
it Is these experts whom the Maui
boys will have to attempt to defeat.
The Maui team consists of the fol
lowing players: A. W. Collins 1;
Harold Rice, 2; David Fleming, 3: and
Frank Baldwin, 4. Sam Balding will
be the Maul substitute player.
Make Maui Trip
G. H. Barnhart and H. M. Blowers,
two young Honolulu men, concluded
an eight-day walk over Eastern Maui
on Thursday. With as many days
growth or whiskers they attracted
much attention as they came in to
Waiiuku with their packs. They left
Central Maui last week, and climbed
to the summit of Haleakala where
they spent two days, then hiked to
Kaupo from where they spent anoth
er day in going to liana. From Hana
to Huelo they put in two more days
and the day following reached Waiiu
ku. Without any apparent weariness
from their long walk, they started
out the next morning for a sight-seeing
trip through . Iao Valley. From
Waiiuku they walked to Lshaina,
where they ended their long Maui
hike. During the trip over Maul they
carried 30-pound packs.
HOLD HAWAIIAN BOYS
ON A SERIOUS CHARGE
Two Hawa'ian youths are being held
by the police for investigation on a
complaint lodged by an aged Hawaiian
woman, who claims that they made
her the victim of a criminal assault
last Saturday evening. The woman is
between 50 and GO years of age. She
alleges that she asked one of the boys,
who Is in the rent automobile business
to take her to the home of some
friends near Puunene. When she ar
rived there she found her friends a
way and had no money to pay her fare.
The boys suggested that she return
to Waiiuku and secure the money.
This she agreed to do, she says, but
instead of coming to Waiiuku the au
to turned up the Pala road. It was
near the junction where she alleges
the assault was committed. The boys
will be given a preliminary hearing in
a few days.
MAUI VISITORS AT RACES
Among the Maui residents who went
to Honolulu last Saturday to take in
the races and polo match at Kapio-

MAUI COUNTY FAIR
Maui is going to have a real old
fashioned County Fair, at Waiiuku,
the last day in November. That its
success is already assured goes with
out saying because F. G. Krauss, the
best larmer in Hawaii, is at the head
of the agricultural section. There
used to be agricultural fairs devoted
to .the products of the soil back in the
50s and the 'COs, before .the Reciproci
ty Treaty of 1876 made the sugar in
dusiry possible. From time to time
since that date there have been ex-hibilions-of
diversified products, here
and on each of the other Islands, but
Maui is the only one of the four larger
isles where diversified farming has
kept its toehold, through thick and
thin, through prosperous years and
If a reason must be supplied it is
probably to be found in the circum
stance that the Maui plantations, or
at least the largest one is owned by a
group of men who live on Maul by
preference, and aie interested in any
tiling that is good for their community.
They have been friendly to small
farming Itnd the small farmer, and
have helped the latter succeed.
The Haiku experiment station has
had the active support of the sugar
lv'ant' is, and has in turn been help
ful to them, how helpful may be judg
ed from the high esteem in which the
accomplished agriculturist at its head
is held. With Professor Krauss in
charge of the farm exhibit the Maui
County Fuir is bound to be a marked
