THE MAUI NEWS, ! RID AY, OCTOBER 12, 1917.
SAID ABOUT US
Governor rinkhiim returned to Ho
nolulu Saturday morning from Maul
and there had a few things to say to
the papers about conditions here. He
is quoted by a city paper as follows:
"My visit to Maui was a very busy
one," said the governor. "At the sug
gestion of Mr. Harold Hice we covered
from 100 to 123 miles daily by auto
mobile, visiting thoroughly the home
steads opened and to be opened, and
examined the cane fields so seriously
and extensively affected by the
drought. We drove over quite exten
sive government and private lands
that have rarely, some never, been
inspected. Neither hills or rocks
stopped us in our rough cross-country
"The Kula district up on the side of
mountain Haleakala has had suffi
cient rain. The homesteads look well
and crops excellent. Below and on
the Makawno and Haiku side the lack
of rain is distressing, and the lack
of water for irrigation will result in
the loss of SO per cent of the cane in
large fields and serious diminution
The governor believes that in the
production of food and fodder staples
success now, as ever, depends on the
destruction of pests, proper curing
and their preservation.
"The financial returns depend on
marketing economics," he says. "Here
tofore men of large means have
thought exclusively in terms of sugar
from which their fortunes have been
derived, and might still so think,
could a reliable water supply be found
for the 8000 to 10,000 acres of good
cane land unappropriated.
"Fortunately, the five male mem
bers of the Baldwin family, including
Mr. Rice, live on their lands and, as
aggressively as sound prudence and
nature permits, are developing their
lands, improving the breeds of their
stock, and raising the necessary sub
sistence for them and to spare.
"To their Maui properties they
have added Lanal, the development of
which will require comparatively
"The homesteader needs also to
breed up his stock and feed his pro
duce so as to be able to market a
large proportion in a concentrated
"In the limited way our small coun
try competes, I hope, relatively, our
homesteaders may find a dealers' mar
ket near their own doors as Is the
case on the mainland, for a small
farmer cannot be producer and dis
tributor. "It will become practical, now men
of great means are determined to
solve the problems not only for them
selves but their neighbors.
"The ladies of this progressive fam
ily are demonstrators of the fact we
can live well on what we locally pro
duce, as I can testify, having been
a guest in their homes.
"With the combination of land, fi
nancial means, aggressive intelligence
and experiment and entire unity, I

A part of the proceedings of the
meeting of the Maui County Fair and
Haein Association, held last Friday
afternoon, appeared in the paper of
the same day.
In addition, there wa9 rend a let
ter from Mr. Crockett to the Maul
County Fair & Racing Association and
a statement of account of the old Maui
Racing Association due to the Kahu
lul Store in the sum of $282.01. The
President appointed Mr. Wadsworth a
committee of one to interview the
manager of tiie store with a view to
having the account "forgotten." Mr.
Case was appointed a committee, and
given like instructions, in regard to
an account of S17.07 due by the old

Mr. Case called attention to the ad
visability of the Fair Association and

the premises lately vacated by the
Hugh Howell Engineering Co., for
permanent headquarters for these or
ganizations, and a place wherein
members, directors and committees
could meet from time to
time. On motion of Mr. Lindsay,
seconded by Mr. Wadsworth, the As
sociation went on record as favoring
the rental of rooms in Wailuku as
permanent headquarters, provided the
Chamber of Commerce would join In
and share the expense.
The committee appointed at the
last meeting to consider the question
of paying the secretary reported in
favor of the proposition. Secretary
Case expressed it as his wish, how
ever, that he be not paid, preferring
to give his time in public work of
this character sans remuneration. In
view of this request of Mr. Case, no

UK country prosperous can pay our war costs,
as they conic, and have enough left over to aid
Our country unprosperous, with business halting,
money hoarded, through fear or false economy, will
he hard pressed to keep food on the table and clothing
on the back.
KEEP BUSINESS GOING
is a patriotic slogan. Keep money in circulation. Keep
employment for everybody. Keep wages good. Keep
on making money that we may have money to spend
for war sacrifices.
The worst thing that could happen to the world
these days would be a business depression in our Unit
War in itself does not cause business depression.
The billions of dollars of money to be expended
in war preparations will be put into circulation in our
own country and this in itself will create new wealth
for use in the world-struggle for humanity.
The one thing that might halt business now is
an unpatriotic psychological feeling of panic and a
false idea of patriotic economy.
Patriotic economy means the elimination of waste
and extravagance. It means the conservation of our
food products, our natural wealth, our health, our
energies, our labor, our very lives.
Cities and communities must go on with their
civic improvements. Road building and public works
must proceed. Factories must be kept going to their
full capacity. Labor must be employed. Merchandise
must be produced, distributed and used. War duties
and tear expenditures must be in addition to peace
duties and peace expenditures. The more we do the
more zve can do.
In a word : the natural sane life of the country
must proceed as though we were not at war, in order
that we may have the necessary prosperity to promote
the war to a quick and successful conclusion.
