Weekly Market Letter
Honolulu, October 12, A shipment
of Island peanuts was received from
Kualoa this week. This Is the first
large shipment of Island peanuts that
has been received for some time.
Tomatoes are quite plentiful and
are much larger and better than the
tomatoes that have been shipped to
the market for a long time.
Island Irish potatoes are scarce but
we expect that in about a month we
will be receiving shipments from Maul.
Maul farmers are planting better seed
this year and are paying more atten
tion to spraying their fields so we ex
pect the Maui potatoes to be great
deal better this year than they have
Sweet potatoes are plentiful and
are selling well as the potatoes that
are being shipped to the market are
very good and are of the red and
Madeira varieties, which sell a good
deal faster than the large white
Shipments of cooking bananas are
being received from Hawaii every
ten day by the steamer Kilauea. O.

OUR ISLAND CONTEMPORARIES
No Time For Booze Bills
The various committees of the vari
ous islands are fast shaping up the
plans for the entertainment and tlm
edification of the senators and repre
sentatives to arrive within the next
tliree weeks and one of the points
under discussion is whether or not,
under the circumstances of the war
and oilier circumstances of the times,
any part of the entertainment should
include the serving of intoxicants.
Inasmuch as the Governor has ofli-
cially placed the ban upon cocktails
and wines at public functions and in-
istnuch as the chamber of commerce
and the civic convention have decided
hat this is not the time to spend
money upon intoxicants. The Adver
tiser sees no reason whatever for de
bating the question In connection with
tlie forthcoming congressional visit.
It ought to be made plain, and the
rule strictly adhered to, that no public
money should be spent upon booze,
whether for congressmen or anyone
This vis'.t of the senators and repre
sentatives is strictly official and strict
ly for business. In no sense is it a
The visitors coming are members
of the congress which made It illegal
to sell intoxicants to a member of
the army and navy. They are mem
bers of tlie congress which passed a
number of other prohibition measures,
including one making the District of
Columbia dry. They would be among
the first to see the impropriety at
this time of spending public funds for
intoxicants and certainly will find no
grounds for criticism ijt our logical
position toward war-time economy.
During the stay of the party in the
Islands it will be accompanied, un
doubtedly, by officers of the Army and
Navy, detailed for the purpose, and
it would be bad taste, to say the least,
to serve wine to civilian members
of the party at a time when other
members would be under orders not
It would also be disconcerting, to
say the least, should waiters refuse
to serve intoxicants to members of
the party unless the officers detailed
with it withdrew themselves.
There is no good reason why booze
should mix itself up in the plans for
the congressional visit, and there are
any number of good reasons why it
should 'not. P. C. Advertiser.
Conditions Unique In Hawaii
Hawaii, is, in some ways, a law unto
itself. Or at least it should be so.
Conditions here are vastly different
from those which prevail on the main
land. This feature is not understood

by those at a distance, and least of
all, perhaps by the government. The
government, for instance, attempts to
adopt bard and fast rules in the
management of the postal department.
Postollice employes are paid accord
ing to the grade of work, without re
gard to qualifying conditions. Tlie
result is that a clerk in a certain
grade receives no more pay in the
Hilo poslofllce than a clerk in the
same grade receives in the manufac
turing centers of New England. Yet
the cost of living here is far greater
than in many sections of the East,
and salaries correspondingly larger.
That is, in commercial lines. The
postollice department, however, offers
no greater pay in Hilo than it does
in the East. The result is that em
ployees are soon offered more tempt
ing salaries in other lines, and the
postmaster finds i.t necessary to ac
cept .recruits from the civil service
list, and must train such employees
to do ..ho work which devolves upon
them. Aoout the time they be'isnie
proficien';, they are lured away by an
offer of far greater salaries t.im tbe
government wiil pay, and the weary
round o" change goes on as of yoro.
This naturally results in decreased
service, and tends to increase the
difficulties attendant upon postollice
work. U is a matter which ought to
be adjusted in tlie interest of better
service Kilo Tribune.
Old Glory Good Enough
A contemporary recently suggested
that w-e in Hilo, fly the flags of our
Allies as well as the Star and Stripes.
V:e would lik-i to remind that content
potciiy, thac there are too darned
liiav.y flags of foreign nations to be
seen here as it is, without making a
further display. This is America.t
te;riory, and absolutely nothing else.
The American flag is big enough to
lover tlie Islands yet for awhile, and
if the foreigners here are so doggone
wistful of seeing the flag of their
country afloat, a good place to see It,
would be somewhere in the immedi
ate vicinity of the firing line. This
is not said with the least disrespect
towards the flag of any other country,
but rather to emphasize the fact that
Uncle Sam's colors are about all
there is to the question as concerns
this territory, which fact should be
gotten under the hat of everybody,
and kept there. Hawaii Post.
