Raymond Ranch Enters Local Market
With 22 Percent Cut On Beef
Gives 6 Year Contracts
NEXT MOVE IS UP TO RICE
Wailuku housekeepers are looking
forward with the greatest complac-
ency to what promises to he a long
and bloody fight. Moreover they are
anticipating It with much satisfaction
Indications of the pending-conflict
came first about 2 weeks ago when
the board of supervisors opened the
tenders for the meat contracts for the
Malulani Hospital and the county jail
and found that Manuel Dutro, the
Market street retail meat man, offer

cents for choice cuts and 15 cents
for stew. This being 1V6 per pound
lower than any other bidder, and 6
cents below the present retail prices,

But people began to really sit up
and take notice when the first of this

running an advertisement in the Daily

of commerce booster dinner at the
Maul Hotel, on Tuesday evening. It
was notable from the fact that for the

It is safe to say that it will be repeated
often In the future.
The other noteworthy feature was
that the dinner was entirely home
produced Maul produced from the
the papia cocktail to the "small
blacks" from the Honolua Ranch.
Moreover the dinner was good. In
fact Landlord Field, and the chamber
