THE MAUI NEWS, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 12, 1917.
Where Is The Food Commission?
What has become of the Territorial
Food Commission? Two or three
months ago It was continually In evi
dence with all kinds of information,
lnstructon, and advice, columns of It
In every journal and In almost every
It was all immediate and urgent, and
insistent, like the cries of a drowning
man. Then all of a sudden it ceased,
and now for some time, there are
only a few bubbles coming up from
where the Food Commission used to
be. Is it dead, or is it only dumb?
With bo much to tell us at the begin
ning, and so frantic to tell It, why
this sudden collapse? Try us again
with some of that interesting and use
ful information that you used to give
us; we need It just as much now as
we did then. The Garden Island.
Sweden's air of Injured innocence
in the matter of the Luxburg dis
patches from Argentina, looks too
much like the surprise of a few near
opium smugglers, who not so many
years ago, were so nearly caught with
the goods on them, and who, were
they to be forced to acknowledge facts
would hardly be gracing the streets
of Ililo today Hawaii Post.

RED CROSS ITEMS
The ladies of the Kahului Unit who
commenced their regular meetings

The Lanai Policeman
In Need Of A Jail
Robert Cockett, lone police officer
on the island of Lanai, needs a jail,
and that badly, from all accounts.
It used to be that an arrest on Lanai
was a rare occurrence, so there was
seldom, if ever, use for a lock-up.
But Lanai has evidently fallen from
grace, or, to be more exact, the water
wagon for Cockett complains that
there is much drinking over there.
There being no jail, when an ar
rest is made it ie necessary for
the police officer to stand guard,
over his prisoner at night, or un
til he can find a way to
send him to Lahaina for trial. Lately
there have been so many arrests that
the job of "keeping wake" over the
drunks has become quite irksome.
In answer to the appeal, SherifT
Crowell went to Lanai Monday, re
turning again on Wednesday. He
found 4he situation just about as bud
as Cockett had stated, and wijl recom
mend to the supervisors the erection
of a small jail over there.
