Demcrat Rule Proving
Success In Philippines
That two years trial of the Demo

W. H. Babbitt of the Hawaiian Sugar
Planters Association, who arrived
Monday on the Tenyo Maru from a
twenty-three months stay in the Is

of the Islands that a Filipno has dared

STRONGER SHIPPING BOXES
FROM LESS MATERIAL
That a much stronger box than the
type ordinarily used can be made with
less material by increasing the num
ber of nails and by properly propor
tioning the thickness of the sides and
ends has been demonstrated by engi
neers of the Forest Products Labora
tory, at Madison, Wis. A loss that
reached many millions of dollars an
nually is, it is stated, caused by dam
age to goods in transit, largely be
cause of faulty containers. The wood
experts of the Forest Service believe
that this loss can be decidedly de
creased by better construction of the
boxes in which goods are shipped.
Changes in the design of boxes
which were recommended as a re
sult of the tests at the Laboratory
have been adopted by several associa
tions at a recent meeting of the Can
ners' Association of what has been
done by the Forest Service along
these lines arouBed considerable In

Double Reward Out For Hllo't Fire
Two rewards of $luO each have been
offered for the arrest and conviction
of the miscreant who attempted to
lntrn down the social hall of the First
Foreign Church of Hilo during the
early morning hours of Sunday, March
18. The First Trust Company of Hilo,
through its manager, H. B. Mariner,
acting for the Hawaiian Insurance
Company, offers one $100 and W. H.
Smith, attorney, also offers $100 rew

This is the second time that an ef
fort has been made to destroy the
First Foreign Church by Are.
Dr. A. H. Sayce, a famous authority
on Assyriology and Egyptology, who
is spending some time in the Islands,
states that there is no evidence that
the drawings on rocks in various
parts of the territory are anything
more than crude attempts of artistry
of some prehistoric peoples. He Is
certain that they were produced in
much the same spirit, probably, that
a child draws pictures upon a slate,
and that they were in no sense an at

Has Geared Turbines
The Maui is of special interest in
shipping circles from the reason that
she is the first large passenger vessel
to be built in this country equipped
with geared turbines. Heretofore such
craft have been single screw and of
from 2000 to 3000 h. p., whereas the
Maul has twin-screw equipment and
will develop 10,000 h. p. at full speed.
This speed Is guaranteed 16V6 knots,
and according to published statements
in technical journals, the schedule de
termined upon calls for the run be
tween San Francisco and Honolulu to
be made in 5.8 days.
The dimensions of the ship are
length all over, 501 feet; beam, 58
feet; draft (loaded) 29 feet, 11 inches.
Will Get Big Reception
The Maui will be accorded a big
reception on her arrival in Honolulu
on April 10. It is understood that the
Honolulu chamber of commerce, Ad
Club, and other organizations are plan

fitting ceremonies. The ship has been
booked to capacity for months, and

caused cancellations, she will bring a

Hana Slayer Guilty
Of Common Assault
(Continued from Page One.)
the taking of testimony began at 10
o'clock yesterday morning. Argu
ments had been completed before 3:30
o'clock, and the jury had been charg
ed and sent to its room by 3:45 p. m.
The half dozen witness put on the
stand by the prosecution told much
the same story. There had been a
3-or 4-day drunk at Hu's house in the
edge of Hana in which a dozen or
more had taken part. This was at
Chr'stmas time, the tragedy occurring
about midnight of December 27. Hu
and Puhiliale had been engaged in a
"hands-down" test of strength. Hu
was defeated, and in a rage he com
mitted the assault which resulted in
his opponent's death.
The principal liquor drunk was a
wine costing 75 cents per gallon.
Several gallons of this were consum
ed during the carrousal.
Hu Takes Stand
The defendant took the stand in his
own behalf and was examined by his
attorney, Enos Vincent, who had been
appointed by the court to defend the
case. He understands but little Eng
lish, and gave bis testimony through
an interpreter. He claimed that his
mind was a blank as to what had oc
curred on the fatal night. On cross
examination by County Attorney E.
R. Bevins, he admitted writing a full
confession for SheriffCrowellJn which
he detailed the crime and the inci
dents leading up it, but he explained
that this had been written from infor
mation given him by his wife and
others and not from actual knowledge
of events that had taken place.
The defendant's appearance was
probably in his favor, lie is a decent
appearing Hawalan about 48 years of
age iand has borne a good reputation
except when drinking. It is said that
he had been keeping away from booze
for som? time prior to the Christmas
revel. The death of his son is said
to have been a severe blow to him,

for the effort which he made to hang
himself in the Hana jail, shortly after

in the color scheme.
The table was very handsome.
Quantities of yellow blossoms adorred
it and were suspended from the elec
trolier by means of ribbon. Fluffy
bows of yellow tulle added to the at
tractiveness of the table. The place
cards were very unique and original.
They were in dainty scroll form, de
corated with yellow violets and bear
ing apt little skits by which each
found her appointed place.
A dainty seven course luncheon
was served, the decorative scheme of
white and yellow being carried in
minutest detail in each course. The
crowning glory was the birthday cake,
coming in on a large tray decorated
with dainty yellow blossoms and
Mrs. MacDonald were cleverly served
a wish with each slice of cake.
The hours after the luncheon were
very happily spent in guessing games.
The most popular one was the "art

prize an artistically framed picture.

Timely Farm Hints
By F. G. KRAUSS, 8upt.
Haiku Extension Division,
Hawaii Experiment Station
Keep A Family Milch Cow
A practical means of securing more,
better and cheaper milk.
One of the most wholesome and
nutritious foods for family use is pure,
fresh, rich milk.
Every family living on the farm and
most town's people having a house
lot 100x150 feet or larger, can keep a
family cow profitably.
Choose an animal of the dairy breed
or a high grade thereof that appeals
to you most. At time of purchase she
should preferably be in her second,
period of lactation and in the height
of her milk flow to Insure the greatest
benefit to her owner. Choose rather
a moderate and persistent milker than
one yielding heavily on freshening
and then subsiding rapidly in her
A ten to fifteen quart cow of good
grade can usually be bought at from
$100 to $125.v Such a cow with good
cure should produce not less than
2500 quart during a lactation period
of from nine to eleven months, or an
average of about seven quarts a day ,
per annum. At ten cents per quart (
the cross value of her annual product
as mil!- would be $250. The butter
equivalent, assuming the milk to be
of four percent butter fat content,
would be about 175 pounds for the
year. An equal amount of milk from
a high grade Jersey would produce at
least a fifth more butter.
If a cream separater Is used the
fresh skim milk can be used for many
household purposes, where formerly
the whole milk was used. Its food
value is at least fifty percent of the
The cost of feed bought during a
vear, even at present high prices,
need not exceed $75. A lot 100x100
feet (approximately one-fourth acre)
'f under irrigation, will provide ample
forage (alfalfa, sorghum, sudan grass,
etc., etc.) to maintain a cow in rough
age throughout the year, and likewise
space for exercising and a shed, say
8x12 feet for housing.
Feeding and milking should be done
with greatest regularity. Thirty
minutes twice daily should suffice for
feeding and milking. Gentle treat
ment should at all times prevail if the
greatest profit and pleasure is to be
derived from the family cow.
The following grain ration have
been found among the most efficient
and economical of a large number test
ed out at the Haiku Sub-station. For
cows weighing about 1000 pounds, 2
to 3 pounds algerobe meal, 2 to 3
pounds wheat or rice middlings, 2 to
3 pounds alfalfa meal, 1 to 2 pounds
oil cake or cocoanut meal. The total
grain ration need rarely exceed 10
pounds per day for highest milk pro
duction if ample good green feeu
such as alfalfa, sorghum, etc. are pro
vided. Of these latter ,the average
cow will consume 30 to 50 pounds
daily. When' convenient it is well to
cut up the green feed and mix the
grain with the roughage slightly
moistened. A fresh supply of water
should at all times be accesable, like
wise provide a lump of rock salt.

To Get Busy Soon
It is hoped that the association may
be in shape to get to work in prepara
tion for the fair to be held in 1918 Im
mediately after the meeting next
week. The plan now is to take over
the race track grounds and buildings
of the present racing association and
to begin the necessary work of filling
in and enlarging the grounds, which
will take considerable time. Plans
must also be undertaken, at once (or
holding the annual race meet which
haa been a feature of Maul for about
30 years. In merging itself with the
fair association, the racing association
does so with the understanding that
these races be perpetuated. It is usu
al to hold the races on the Fourth of

will of course be held at whatever
time the fair is held, it is probable
that this year they will take place oa
