DAXIBL II. CASE
Who Sever Lacked A Sensible Pair Suggestion.
Prepare For War
(Continued from Page One.)
eently faced a distressing lark of food,
if not actual starvation.
'the territorial government feels
that It is incumbent upon it to invest
igate and ascertain to what degree
and by what.measures oxtremest want
can be averted in case of actual war or
a labor war that may suspend trans
portation. To get a little nearer home, as this
Fair is essentially an Agricultural
Fair and Maui has possibly more land
adapted to temperate' zone products
than any other island of the group, I
will recall my advice to the Haiku
homesteaders, in which I urged them
to produce a substantial part of their
subsistence from their lands and then
attend to their cash income crops. I
fear my advice was not particularly
The Territory has found it advise
able to establish a Territorial Market
I am not so sure but the Government
will be obliged to go much further and
see to it that the public is not depriv
ed of the local sources of food from
land and sea.
A number of times during this year,
the stock of flour in this Territory
has been less than a two weeks' sup
ply, and other staples were entirely
exhausted or nearly so.
Maui is looked upon as a potential
source of possible supply and its safe
transportation to Oahu in case of war.
War is not expected, but we should
have a well considered, pre-arranged
plan to preserve ourselves in case war
is thrust upon us. This Territory must
study and demonstrate its self-contained
means of producing its own sub
sistence. How imperative this preparation is,
is emphasized when the Chairman of
the Appropriations Committee of the
United States House of Represent
atives proposes an embargo on the ex
portation of food stuffs.
You have no right to lightly throw
aside the solution of this problem.
If I am correctly informed, home
steaders on Maui are rap'dly becom
ing absentee landlords. If so, it is an
indication the Government had better
cease homest fading for the present,
or until a different spirit prevails.
You farmers must learn how to farm,
and refrain from being lessors. You
must learn how, and have the means
to compete. It machinery is needed
to compete, the Government must see
that it is provided. If transportation
charges stand between you and your
market, the Government must see
such charges are equitable.
Your market will undoubtedly be
greatly enlarged for the relatively
enormous expansion of the Army and
Navy, together with consequent civil
accessions, is liable to material's be
fore you are r. arty, to say nothing of
other phases of increased population.
I am aware of the drawbacks agri
culture has to contend with in a
climate where pests and parasites are
never frozen and where vegetation
pever gets a rest. I am not sure of a
substitute for frost, but nature can be
inexpensively compelled to rest wheie
traders can be used to turn vegeta
tion under for rest and fertilization.
I arprehend when we are possibly
blockaded, if ever we are, we will not
ba as particular as to what we mi :ht
eat, or its variety, as we would that

moderate variety of proserveable foodn

Let us have some plain talk about
plain articles this Territory can pro
duce with a reasonable degree of de
pendence. Lima beans are said to be very
reliable as a local crop, yet a few days
ago none were to be had in the Ho
nolulu market, although the price
were twenty cents per pound. Small
white beans have been successful on
Maul and the growers endeavored to
sell to the U. S. Army Quartermaster,
who was not then in the market. They
left a sample in a tightly closed bottle.
Later they called and that official
remarked, "There Is your sample, un
touched; but your beans are full of
weevil." There, is a problem of preven
tion for your Agricultural College and
its chemists; It has been placed be
Many of us consume breakfast foods.
A large percentage Is manufactured
of corn In various forms. A large per
centage of their cost to you is absorb
ed in expensive packing, advertising
and transportation. Maui on its up
lands is a good corn producer. Our
chemists, food experts, and mechan
ics ought to be able to tell us how to
prepare, . preserve, conserve and com
ptet in quite a variety of foods.
You are able to raise tubers and
root crops, but their preservation ia

that country owes her present exist
ence. One of our troubles has been the
lack of a sufficiently broad market to
encourage farming. The planned ex
pansion of the United States Army and
Navy, and leisure visiting class, prom
ise to broaden your market. It is not
improbable their expenditures will
annually exceed the combined normal
value of both sugar and pineapples
along ship's side at our ports. Such
a state of affairs would not reduce the
volume produced of our two staples,
but it would enable us to get our
minds to some degree off sugar and at
tend to other interests and progress.
I close the agricultural part of this
address by urging you to get busy,
and quoting my "Forword" placed be
fore you by the Star-Bulletin. As an
indication of our situation a clipping
of this foreword was sent by the com
mander of the Naval Station to the
Secretary of the Navy.
The United Slates will not contrib
ute one dollar to purchasing the sites.
The reason is obvious. There would
be no end of National Parks, and
drains on the National Treasuary at
phenominal valuations should the
Government consent to purchase sites.
I am hoping, as the rim and crater
of Huleakala control one of the most
wonderful sights in the world, the peo
ple of Maui may benefit greatly.
The coun'y possesses trails and
roads that are a revelation of distinc
tive scenery. I hope they may be
developed and cared for so they may
be safe and good without destroying
the naturalness of the scenery.
Your island is not forgetting to
provide attractive accommodations for
visitors. I hope your visitors may not
"come, see and go," but "come, see
and stay awhile."
Maui should bo the happiest of our
islands, tor the Almighty has done
his very best for you, and if the same
spirit prevails among you, only the
His and indiscretions to which human
ilesh is inevitably subject can militate

The progress of civilization has not
loosed his fetters but has thrust him,

Legal entities or associations end

absolution impossible for the indiv

Few individuals in either class und
erstand the intricacies of finance or

them, for the ever-changing investor

Andrew Carneeie. About thirty years
ago that gentleman, In an article ir
the North American Review, urged
that certain individuals and the'r busi

that they might acquire vast wealth
and later distribute, at their own will,
this wealth in pub!:e benevolences
It was granted, with Mr. Carneeie th
chief beneficiary. Swelled with the
potency of his wealth his impending
projects caused other men of great

You all know that after establish
ing the great enterprise in which he
risked health and wealth, the ambition
of the late H. P. Baldwin was to de
velop and increase the independent
homes supported by diversified pro
ducts from comparatively small areas
of land. You also know the money
and energy that managers of the su
gar enterprises of this County have
devoted to improving conditions so
that the workers in this industry shall
be more contented, more prosperous,
more independently permanent, and by
that I mean permanent because they
wish to be and not on account of a
a lack of money to get out.
Education, far from taking people
away from agriculture is making the
agricultural industry productive,
prosperous, attractive, liveable. It is
civilizing an industry which not so
many years ago was set aside as the
final haven of dullards and clodhop
pers who incidentally turned out the
greatest men and leaders of the nation.
