Weekly Market Letter
December 29, 1917.
Practically no change has been
made in the market prices during the
past week. The most important sales
were in turkeys, chickens, and ducks
used for the holidays. The shipments
of turkeys received before Christmas
were greatly in excess of the ship
ments received at Thanksgiving.
Large shipments of beans are still
being received from Maui and unless
the sales increase, it will take three
to four months to dispose of the crop,
And rather than have their beans held
here that long, in all probability the
farmers will demand that their beans
be shipped to the Coast. In this
event a shortage in the bean market
will soon follow and with a lack of
bottoms and the increased freight
rates, the people of Honolulu will
find themselves paying a great deal
more for imported beans than they
are now able to buy the local product
The division is trying to induce the
restaurants of the city to use local
beans entirely and so far have been
We are receiving small shipments
or wnite sweet potatoes which are
very good and selling as low as $1.15
a hundred. These same potatoes are
being sold in Honolulu from that
price up to $1.50 a hundred wholesale.
Eggs and poultry have remained
the same with the exception of hens
which dropped two cents a pound.

No Restrictions On
The recent declaration of war on
Austria-Hungary, and proclamation by
the President relating to the . status
of subjects of the dual monarchy re
siding in the United States, Indicates
that no restrictions whatever are to
bo placed on Austrlans, at leaat Xor
the present; so, if there are any un
naturalized Austrlans in the Hawaii
an Islands, they may rest easy, so
long as they obey the laws of this
country. The attorney-general of the
united States has Issued an exDlana-
tlon of the President's order, which
contains the following, bearing unon
"Many subjects of Austria-Hunirarv
have already demonstrated their
strong loyalty to this country by their
launiutness in industrial work, their
organization of recruiting committees,
and in service with our armies. For
the present, therefore, no restrictions
will be placed upon the movements of
subjects of Austria-Hungary. They
are not subject to the restrictions of
the previous proclamations relating
to German enemy aliens; they will
be permitted to reside and labor In
prohibited areas and to travel freely
without molestation. Only those who
are dangerous or disloyal are subject
WOMEN NOT RESTRICTED
United States Attorney S. C. Huber
says that restrictions governing the
movements of aliens in the United
States in traveling do not apply to
women and children. Although a
woman in marrying assumes the na
tionality of her husband, permits to
travel from one place to another In
the United States are not required in
the cases of women and children.
The statement was made yesterday
when an American woman, married
to a German, was told that she might
travel to the mainland without ob
taining a permit. Advertiser.
