Territorial Market Management
The Territorial Market comes un
der the head of "those things that
ought to bo but ain't." A good num
ber of people in this town are more
than favorably disposed toward the
Territorial Market. They have gone
out of their way to patronize this
market beeause it is looked upon as
an outlet for the product of the small
farmer. And many people wish to do
what they can to help the so-called
Hut the market lacks management:
It is practically speaking in about the
same position as the municipal govern
ment of Honolulu; It has the same
faulty management, and although
great effort may be put forth to over
come this dilllculty, the desired re
sults are not in evidence.
To bo entirely fair one should real
ize that this market has many excep
tional problems to face. It is not
popular with interests whose profits
might possibly bo reduced by a suc
cessful public market. It is working
in a new field. It may not have the
amount of money necessary to do the
All sorts of boulders could be dis
covered in the pathway of this insti
tution, but everyone of them is an
other point in proof of the fact that
the market needs management. No
privately controlled business has ever
been built up without a Btruggle;
government controlled business can
not expect an easier pathway.
The quickest means of killing off a
private business is to put a depart
ment in charge of a man or boy who
doesn't know his business, and to all
appearances has never been schooled
in the work to be done. The persons
in control are responsible if the ignor
ance and poor service continues.
Between the board of agriculture
and the food commission it should be
possible to develop a line of action,
business management, that will put
the Territorial Market in the list of
places where the people can secure
service. That will bring the trade and
small farmer will get his share. Star
Bulletin. What It Would Take
To Furnish Cottages
In reference to furnishing teachers'
cottages for the Island of Hawaii, a
dealer has presented figures to indi
cate the cost. This estimate appear
ing on the face of it, would tend to
make it seem rather an expensive un
dertaking, but since the county of
Maui has found it possible to do so,
there can be no sane reason advanced
as to why this county should not do
There is little doubt that if prac
tical economy could be put into effect
here, there is many an improvement
'could be added to those that we al
ready have, and that the cost of
furnishing teachers' cottages is one
of these, is also a certainty. What
Maul has done, we could and should
do in this respect, instead of bicker
ing over what it will cost. Hawaii
Portuguese To Make
A Red Cross Drive

WHY INDIVIDUALISM IS AS DEAD AS A SMELT
By George W. Perkins.
"Individualism" is as dead as a smelt.
that is my contention.
In this country we have been living
in an age of the utmost freedom to the
individual. It hus been the individual
Iu the early days, when instantaneous
inliivoiiiniiink'iition did not exist, when
education was meagre and science un-
di'velojied,B wliut the individual did was
of comparatively small consequence, for
his deeds did not reach very far and did
not affect many people.

Weekly Market Letter
Honolulu, October 20 The price of
Island eggs has remained the same for
the past three weeks. Island poultry
is scarce and the retailers are offer
ing good prices.
Muscovy ducks are scarcer than
they have been for some time past and
the price has advanced two cents.
The first of the new crop of Maui
beans was received last week. Calico
beans selling for $11.00, small whites
for $13.00 and red beans for $9.00 a
h-undred. The Maui farmers expect to
be able to market a large crop of
beans this year.
Large shipments of dried corn are
being received from Maui and Hawaii.
Corn is not sellng very fast. Most of
the people having a small number of
chickens have disposed of them on ac
count of the high price of feed and
the high prices otered for poultry.
This has helped to reduce the demand
for feed and also helped to raise the
price of fresh island eggs. O. B.
