Common Kula Peas
Not In Good Demand
Egg Prices Lower But Demand Good
Potatoes Very Scarce Wheat
At Record Price Of $70 Hides
Bringing Big Money
HONOLULU, April 2, 1917 The
price of eggs has fallen a little, but
they are moving satisfactorily. At
present, very little Island poultry is
on hand, and good fat ducks and chik
ens ate especially in demand at good
All green vegetables are still high
due to recent heavy rains and the
short crops. Farmers, particularly in
Kula, Bhould be careful not to plant
the common Kula pea for drying as it
is very poor for this purpose. The
division has on hand several . bags
which have turned dark and are not
wanted by the trade. Island corn
continues to be scarce and high priced.
All farmers who have corn for sale
can find a ready market for it.
During the past week rice has ad
vanced considerably. This is due to
the scarcity of imported Japanese rice
and the advance in the price of Califor
nia seed rice.
Island Irish potatoes are very scarce
and in great demand, as well as sweet
potatoes. All growers having sweet
potatoes should send them to the mar
ket while the price is high.
The price paid to the producers by
the poi factories for taro ranges from
75c to ?l.OU; but when a consumer
wants to buy a bag he has to pay $2.00
for It. Pumpkins are plentiful and
hard to sell. "The division still has
quite a quantity on hand.
The condition of the banana market
is much improved, and the division is
having no trouble in disposing of large
quantities of them locally. Pineapples
are scarce, as are papaias.
The price of dressed meats is the
same as last week. The price of hides
has advanced to 20c a pound for num
ber one hide in Honolulu. Prices in
San Francisco are 28c a pound. As the
div'sion receives only a small quantity
of hides, it has been unable to take ad'
vantage of the better prices on the
mainland by shipping direct to the
Nearly all of the feed prices have
advanced during the week. Wheat is
now selling for $70.00 a ton. This is
about the record.
Consignors to the division should
not let the recent reports regarding
the marketing division interfere with
the'r shipments. The division is in a
position to pay its consignors on the
tenth of the month following the date
of sale and no consignor stands to lose
a cent through shipping to the divi
sion. All consignors have been paid
in full to date for February sales.
Practically all of the questions raised
by the legislature have been satisfac
torily explained or can be when the
division is given an opportunity to do

Lahaina Man Buys La
Paloma For Game Fishing
Capt. Joe Paiko, well known along
the local waterfront, has purchased
the yacht La Paloma for Clarence Mac
farlane and will use the craft in the
gameflshlng business, with headquart
ers at Lahaina.
The La Paloma achieved fame by
crossing the Pacific Ocean in the
spring of 1906 for the purpose of tak
ing part in the first transpacific yacht
race, her commander on that memor
able cruise being Macfarlane, who was
a much astonished man on arriving
Inside the Golden Gate to find the city
The race was won by the Lurllne,
the Anemone being second and Mac
farlane's boat third. The latter made
the run from the Coast in 15 days, 11
hours, 20 minutes.
Not very long ago the yacht was
fitted with a fifty-horsepower engine.
Captain Paiko, who has resided In
these islands for the past forty-eight
years, put in eighteen years In the
whaling business. Latterly he has
made Lahaina his home, where he has
been engaged in small farming. He
nas again barkened to the call of the
sea, however, and will in future, to
gether with his newly-acquired craft,
be at the disposal of seekers after big
fish in Hawaiian waters.
The" La Paloma will leave for La
haina in a couple of weeks. Adver
tiser. Would Trap Goats For
Profit On Kahoolawe
To capture goats with steel straps
is the latest proposal received for get
ting rid of them on the Island of Ka
hoolawe. This unique method was suggested
Friday morning by William Gillies to
the board of commissioner of agricul
ture and forestry. Gillies informed
the board that he thought he could
make money by killing the goats and
selling their skins, meat and bones if
the board would permit him to go
there. When asked how he planned
to capture the goats he said he pro
posed placing the traps in the trails.
It is estimated that there is about
700 goats on the island and for years
the board has endeavored to extermin
ate them as they ruin the trees and
bushes and nothing can be done to
reforest the island as. planned by the
board, until all goats are killed.
The board told Gillies that it would
take the matter under consideration
and let him know its decision at a
later day. Star-Bulletin.
