What We Missed
appears that nil one hnd 1o do
was to walk Into a German consulate
and whisper the niaRlc words "King
George," and money would be forked
out with no questions asked. Quite a
few people around here think they
have been overlooking a mighty good
Tabuing Liquor Wise Step
Congress toook one wise step In re
gard to the liquor question when it
passed a law, prohibiting the manu
facture of whiskey, brandy and gin
during the duration of the war. The
big interests accepted it with the
best grace possible and immediately
bought large stocks of liquor. But
the wisdom of banishing the liquor
evil Is understood by all nations, and
one by one they have adopted laws
looking to the end. And not one
nation who has passed such a law
has bad any reason te desire the re

Give Fish A Rest
With meatless days, wheatless days
and so forth, why not have a Ashless
day? According to the statement
furnished the food commission the
local fishermen claim that it is not
so easy to catch fish as It used to be
on account of the fishing banks be
coming exhausted. Why not under
those circumstances give the poor
fish a chance to catch up? Hawaii
Helping At Home
The interest which Is being display
ed by local retailers of meat supplies
in the conservation of food, as is evi
denced by the agreement to refrain
from the sale of meat on Fridays, is
yet another proof of the general feel
ing which prevails with regard to the
war. Everybody seems desirous of
aid'ng as best they can, but in some
instances it is rather difficult. As
an instance, it might be quoted that
there was considerable difficulty on
Wednesday last in obta'jiing corn
meal or Graham flour for the mak
ing of wheatless bread to comply
with the request of the Food Con
servation Committee to observe Wed
nesday as a wheatless day. Dealer's
stocks have' been wiped out owing to
the heavy demand made, but this has
not prevented all from observing the
regulations for some have utilized
rice in place of white bread. The
local committee, Mesdames Holmes
and Vicars, speak highly of the spirit
shown regard!ng the conservation
of meat. Hawaii Herald.
Blaming The Filipinos
More than a few people think that
the Filipinos are getting the worst of
it in the national guard controversy.
One set of rumors and complaints
seems to be directed almost solely to
berating the Filipinos because there
are so many of them In the guard and
bcrausc a large number are unable
to speak or understand English. An
other set of complats has to do with
the alleged insubordination of the
Filipinos their purported near-t'ofng
at camp and their action in leaving
the Inter-Island wharf to search for
food on the afternoon they were to
take a steamer for Kauai.
General Johnson has named an in
vestigating board, and this- board
ought to and presumably will go
thoroughly into the complaints against
the Filvpinos. There is plenty of
good evidence available that the Fili
pinos are not to blame. On good
authority it is declared that they d'd
not start the camp-quarrels. Who
did start the quarrels ought to be de
termined by the testimony of eye wit
nesses. Already there seems to be a tend
ency on the part of some people to
make the Filipino "the goat" for all
the troubles of the Kawailoa camp.
That little ruse ought to be nipped in
the bud. Star-Bulletin.
Embargo On Hawaiian Products
In order to force the people of the
Islands to buy Hawaii grown beans,
the people of Maui are proposing that
an embargo be placed on them, there
by makng a market for one of their
very important products. It is the
contention of many people here, and
it must be admitted there is consider
able truth in it, that the claim that
the island grown vegetables, such as
beans and potatoes, etc., do not have
as good a flavor as those sh'pped
from the mainland, is due to a great
extent to the people's imagination.
It they are not told, it is quite possi
ble they could not tell the d'Xference
and quite likely they often buy what
they think is coast articles, which
are not, and enthuse about how much
better they are than the ones grown
Again wHh some people they feel
it is a little more genteel, or aristo
cratic, or something, to use articles
that have been Imported. The far
ther they have come, and the harder
they are to get, of course, the better
they are to their notion. This idea
of putting an embargo on beans looks
good. It should not, however, be on
beans alone but on every product
grown on the Islands, that the farm
ers are having trouble in selling. The
people should be compelled to buy
Hawaiian grown products as long as.
they cost no more than those import
ed, t-ven if they are not quite so good.
Have not the majority of people been
trying to give the impression they
are glad to make sacrifice to help con
serve food? Here's your chance.
When you go to market always ask
for an Hawaiian, grown article and
give the tradesmen to understand
you prefer such, and it will not be
long until they will make it a point
to keep them in stock. Daily Hawaii

Weekly Market Letter
Honolulu Dec. 1, 1917 There has
been very few changes in the market
prices during the week. Large is
land corn has advanced two dollars
per Ion and there is very little island
corn for sale, as most of the Hawaii
and Maud crops have been sold.
Large quantities of Maul beans have
been received and are not selling
very fast. We have made a trial
shipment to the Coast. I do not
think it will be necessary to make
more shipments to the Coast, as the
grocers of Honolulu have promised
to push the island beans and we hope
that all the house wives of the islands
will insist on having island beans.
Large shipments of island oranges
are being received from Hawaii.
Beginning Saturday December 1,
the retail departments of the Terri
torial Marketing Division will be d'
continued by order of the Board of
Commiss'pners of Agriculture and
Forestry, due to the lack of equip
ment and a steady supply of a su'rl
cient variety of island product The
Division will continue to sell at whole
sale only, all island products that are
received O. B. LIGHTFOOT, Act
