A Department Of Domestic Economy Intended To Serve A Patriotic
Purpoee In Conserving Food Needed By The Allied Armlet In Europe
Because it hag suddenly been dis
covered that a big grape crop is al

the Kaupakalua winery has suspend
ed business, the women of Maul have
been called upon to save the situation.

Will you, through your paper, let
the tax-payers of Molokal know, at

Court House, from main government
road. It is the only road that is need
ed, costs nothing for up-keep.
Any relocation must pass over
private property requiring consent of
owners, filling and a retaining wall,
an expensive piece of work for the
tax payers, and will only benefit one
There has never been any complaint
about the present road, and this "relo

Price Regulation Not Workable
Haiku, July 18th, 1917.
Editor Maul News,
At a recent meeting of the Haiku
Farmers' Association the main sub
ject of discussion was the work of the
Territorial Food Commission in its
relation to the farmers of the Terri
tory. Many interesting suggestions
were brought out in the course of the
meeting, and a copy of the minutes
of the meeting was forwarded to Dr.
Arthur L. Dean, executive officer of
the Territorial food commission, with
the request that Dr. Dean comment
upon the main suggestions advanced
by the Association members. Dr.
Dean has replied as follows: "I de
sire to call your attention to the fact
that in the testimony of Mr. Hoover
and Dr. Taylor, who have had wide
personal experience with food condi
tions in Europe during this war. it ap
pears clear that even under the most
stringent conditions of government
control, such as have existed in Ger
many during the war, the enforcement
of arbitrary regulations relative to
the production of food products has
been unsuccessful. Apparently the
only way in which the maximum pro
duction of the things which are de
sired can be brought about is by makd
lng this production profitable. The
fixing of maximum prices has been an
absolute failure. The fixing of mini
mum prices has been only a partial
success. This Commission has abso
lutely no power over Interstate com
merce and is not legally able to pro
hibit the importation of foods into
We are using and shall continue to
use every effort to make the produc
tion of food here successful. We can
not, however, hold up the consumers
for exorbitant prices in order artifici
ally to stimulate the production of the
things which cannot economically be
grown here. It would not be right,
the price of potatoes at 4 cents per
pound to the consumer, when the
price thereof on the mainland is 2
cents per pound.
If it is a general military necessity
that these Islands- become self sup
porting so that they will be independ
ent of the mainland source of supply,
the difference in price between the
prevailing price on the mainland of
any essential commodity and the price
at which It can be profitably of any es
sential commodity and the price at
which it can be profitably produced
by local growers, should be met from
the public treasury to the end that
the cost of living should not be unduly
hiKh to those who can leaBt- afford
the financial burden, it must be by the
consent of the people thereof, such
consent resulting from the conviction
that it is wise and necessary that we
should be Independent of the main
land of the United States for the es
sentials of life."
The above statement appeals to the
undersigned as making quite clear
some of the difficulties in the way of
establishing minimum and maximum
prices on farm produce, desirable as
such control may seem during the
present stress, if not at all times;
likewise the powerleBsness of our
Commission in restricting the impor
tation and exportation of food pro
ducts under the present laws.
The above discussion is in line
with the suggestion that we hold an
agricultural forum where all may ex
press ther views.
