Potatoes Due For
Strong Slump Soon
Maui Beans Bring $12 In Honolulu
Market Eggs Continue To Ad
vance But Poultry Market Dull
Marketing Div ision Has Good Year
HONOLtLU, July 6, Island eggs
are potting very scarce and are selling
for 61 cents a dozen. 17 cents a
dozen more then at this time last
year. A great people have disposed
of their chickens and are buying eggs.
The demand for poultry has not
been very brisk during the past few
weeks although the market has been
A few bags of beans have been re
ceived from Maul and are being sold
at twelve cents a pound, the record
price. Four years ago, the same
beans were sold in Honolulu for as
low as $2.50 a bag. It should not be
necessary to export a single bag to
the mainland this year.
It is reported that the Maul corn
will begin to come In next week in
large quantities. This should relieve
the present conditions of the local
The new rice crop is beginning to
come on the market but with the in
creased freight rate on rice from Jap
an, it is more likely to advance.
Irish potatoes are much cheaper on
the Mainland but as yet' the local price
has not dropped very much. A big
drop in the price can be expected
shortly. Sweet potatoes nre coming
in more plentifully now and the price
will drop to normal before long.
There has been no change in the
meat prices during the week.
The books of the Division have just
been closed, proparatory to the trans
fer to the Board of Agriculture and
Forestry, and show the past year to
be the most successful since it was
put under the supervision of the U.
S. Experiment Station in 1913. Twenty
five hundred and thirty-eight consign
ments of 60 different kinds of island
produce were sold for 474 producers
for a total of $121,512.90, an increase
of $54,534.96 over 1915-1916. In addi
tion to consignment sales, seeds,
crates, and merchandise to the amount
of $18,006.15 were sold to producers
and others. The cost of handling the
business was 11-25 percent on the
dollar, or a decrease of 1-13 percent
from 1915-1916. A. T. LONGLEY,

beside the tracks.
Superindent William Walsh had the
shot prepared with unusual care. The
great face of the quarry had been un
dermined by Uinnelijig, and under it
was tamped nearly a ton of dynamite,
besides several hundred pounds of
black powder. Electric wires to ex
plode the charge had been led well
back on the bluff's above the quarry.
It had been Mr. Walsh's intention
to have the blast fired by Frank F.
Baldwin, president of the railroad
company, but Mr. Baldwin delegated
this honor to A. B. Babcock, of Chi
cago, who as his guest happen to be
on Maui at the time. Mr. Babcock
accordingly forced home the lever of
the generator, and with a dull roar
the whole face of the cliff seemed to
rise bodily and then to fall outward
and downward with a rumble like
thunder and the vibration of an earth
quake. The blast was at once one of the
largest as well as one of the most
successful ever carried out at the
quarry, and was the cause of much
gratification to everybody who had
any connection with the work, not
by any means excepting the Japanese
quarrymen who tunneled the cliff and
placed the explosive.
Mr. Babcock, who fired the big shot,
is head of the brokerage firm of Bab
cock & Rushton, of Chicago, one of
the largest financial firms of the mid
dle west. He was a class-mate of
Frank Baldwin in Yale, and stopped
'off last Friday on his way to the
Orient on a business trip to renew
old acquaintance. He has been Mr.
Baldwin's guest this week but will
leave tomorrow for a brief visit to
the Volcano before continuing his
journey. During his stay on Maui he
has been given the opportunity to see
some of the more important things of

The game between these teams had
the fano on their feet most of the
time as it was very exciting.
The score stood 7 to 4 in favor of
the A. A. C.'s. They are now tied with
the Portuguese and Hawaiians.
H. A. Cs Make Poor Showing
The Hawaiians showed up poorly in
the second game with the strong
Portuguese team. Eaton, their regular
pitcher, played centerfield. W. Bal

"Mr. McCubbln, who is mill engin

Maui, answered the call of the Council
for National Defense for marshalling
of the inventive genius of the nation
be setting to work immediately on the
problem of diver-destroying devices.
"Within a short time, he had design
ed a powerful weapon which the Unit
ed States Government has investigat
ed, accepted, tried out, adopted and
will put into operation.
"The nature of Mr. McCubbin's in
vention cannot, of course, be revealed
but naval experts have pronounced it
a weapon of immense value in the
warfare against submarine. Even, be
fore the device had been completed,
naval experts who inspected the de
signs assured the inventor that it
would be certain to prove practical.
"Announcement was made pome
time ago from Washington that effec
tive weapons against the submarine
had been Invented since the declara
tion of war on Germany and from sev
eral parts of the country have come
stories of men who have submitted
designs. It is known that Mr. McCubb
in's invention is one of the more im
portant Inventions, if not the most
important invention, of this nature.
"When the design of Mr. McCubb
in's diver-destroying device was sub
mitted to the proper authorities It was
immediately investigated and accept
ed. After a thorough trial of the
weapon by navy officials, Mr. McCubb
in was notified by the board of strat
egy of the general staff that his inven
tion had been adopted and would be
put into operation."
New Line Of Photo Plays
Making Hit On Maui
As yet people are not appreciating
the wonders of Triangle Photoplays.
This brand of pictures has been seen
for only about two months on Maui
and motion picture goers are just be
ginning to discover their worth. At
the Knickerbocker Theatre in New
York the Triangle Program was first
offered at the seemingly impossible
prices of fifty cents to two dollars.
The New York critics were unanimous
in their praise and with their coming
a new standard of motion picture pro
duction was set.
The Triangle Is formed by the three
greatest directors in the business to
day, David W. Griffith whose "Birth
of a Nation" or the "Clansman" stay
ed in New York City for over two
years, Thomas H. Ince whose master
piece "Civilization" has never been
equalled and may not be for many
years, and Mack Sennet who is the
King of Comedy Producers.
The scenario department of Thos.
Ince is in charge of C. Gardiner Sulli
van and his name on the theatrical
posters in the East means more the
public than many of our biggest stars.
The cost of production or many of
the Triangle pictures runs from one
to two hundred thousand dollars.Their
players are some of the highest paid
artists in the world. Among their
