to give the fair board every assist
As a result Colonel Schofield prom

of Aala "Park contemplated a neces
sarr expenditure of at least $6,000
for "buildings alone, and a consequent
charge of 25 cents a square foot,
with verv limited space permitted, to
mercantile and business exhibitors
It is estimated the new plans will re
quire a charge of not more than 10 or
12 cents a square foot against busi
ness exhibits, and that they may have
all the space they desire.
Colonel Schofield offers 6S tents,
e-ich 20 bv 60 feet in size and eigin
others that are about 60 feet square
These are known as hospital wall
tents, ideal for housing displays or
sheltering crowds of people. He
takes complete charge of the erection

will give a tent pitching demonstra

of four or five hours.
The soldiers, under the direction of
Colonel Schofield, Major James D.
Dougherty and a special committee
of six army officers from the differ
ent posts, will also arrange a big pro
gram of sport features that should at
tract thousands of people to the fair
ground every day. These will include
ten-team relay races, foot races,
bareback riding, tugs-of-war, Wile

MR. BRECHT'S SILVER CUPS
Honolulu, March 20 One of the
two silver cups which Ernest Brecht,
of Hahnina, Maui, has offered to the
territorial fair as special prizes in the
coming livestock show, will lie hung
up for the best Hawaiian-bred saddle
animal displayed in the horse class.
The other cup will go to the grand
champion aged boar, irrespective of
breed. This was decided upon by the
livestock committee, which expressed
r its gratituda to Mr. Brecht for the
donation and adds that it is prepared
to accept similar contributions from
business firms or individual livestock
breeders who are interested in the
big June show.
It is believed a number of special
premiums will be given by breeders'
associations in the states. Mr.
Brecht's are the first to be received
and within the week wiil be placed in
a window of one of the prominent
Honolulu stores, forming the nucleus
of a large, attractive display of ter
ritorial lair prizes.
The livestock committee has added
a new entry in thp horse show especi
ally for thoroughbreds. At the same
time it ruled that Class A., under
which thoroughbreds are entered,

class, rather than "Light-Draft Ani

130. H. M. von Holt is expected to

PRESIDENT AND THE FAIR
Honolulu, March 20 President Wil
son's approval of the territorial fair,
to be held here June 10 to 15, as a
worthy war-time cnterpri.se, will be
asked by Delegate Kuhio. Acting on
a request from the fair commission,
the lioilulu Chamber of Commerce
is sending word to Hawaii's Delegate
at Washington, to interview the Presi
dent or a member of his Cabinet with
a view to obtaining his written en
dorsement of the forthcoming live
stock and agricultural exhibition.
If the Delegate finds it difficult to
gain an audience with the Chief
Executive, upon whom the burdens of
the Nation at war are bearing so
heavily, he will endeavor to see Her
bert Hoover, Food Administrator, Mr.
Houston, Secretary of Agriculture,
William G. McAdoo, Director of Rail
ways or Mr. Hurley, head of the V.
S. Kb nnir.g Iioaru.
In its letter seeking the Honolulu
Chamber's cooperation in this matter
the fair commission expresses the lie
lief that the exhibition will prove the
biccest factor in nhip space conser
vation and food production so far
brought into play in the Islands.
"The greatest proportion of the
consuming public in Hawaii is center
ed in Honolulu, with its civilian popu
lation of more than 80,000 and mili
tary population of approximately 10,
000, the latter practically non-producing
and ready to buy all its foodstuffs
from the Island growers. Foodstuff
importations last-year amounted to
a million tons, and diminution of im-.
ports is not ns li.rge as it is should
be. Growers must be educated to
the home-market opportunity if pro
duction is to be stimulated material
ly," declared Chairman Angus.
To cooperate actively with the fair
board in preparations for the big cele
bration the Honolulu Chamber of
Commerce authorized Its president
Walter F. Dillingham, to name a
special committee on fair participa
tion. The president has accordingly
appointed the following members of
the Chamber to serve on the commit
tee: F. D. Lowrey, chairman; Ed.
Towse, C. G. Heiser, Jr., It. B. Booth
and B. E. Noble..

The Use Of Candy
In These War-Times
Bulletin No. 35, of the food adminis
tration, relative to the use of candy,
had the attention of the Maui conser
vation committee at Its last meeting,
and as it contains data of general In
terest is published, being as follows:
Is it wrong to make and eat candy
in war time? Can we find in this
clans of food, substitutes for sugar
just as we are finding substitutes for
food that are being needed abroad?
With every desire to be patriotic
those who eat candy are uncertain
whether it is wrong or right, because
this part of the food program has not
received as much emphasis as that
part touching grains and meats.
The Food Administration says it is.
possible to eat candy and satisfy
your sweet tooth, and still be patriot
ic if you use care in selecting the
kinds of candy that contain a mini
mum rather than a maximum amount
We are asked to share our sugar
with the Allies, yet the American
sweet tooth craves candy. - It not
alone has food value but a reasonable
amount of it is desirable in the diet.
There are at least four groups of
candy that contain a minimum in
stead of a maximum amount of su
gar ,and which also contain other
pure and wholesome ingredients,
which are plentiful.
The first group includes chocolate
coated candies with nut and fruit
centers, especially the old fashioned
chocolate creams with the bitter-or-
sweet coating and uncoated candies
such as noul-atines, Turkish pastes
and similar varieties. There is an
alnindance of chocolate; it is pure
and wholesome and has high food
value. You are cooperating in the
conservation program if you eat choc
olate confectionery containing such
The second group includes "hard
boiled caniies" such as lemon drops,
stick candy, fruit tablets, peanuts
bars, peanut brittle, glace nuts and
the like. In this group may also be
placed molasses candies Buch as
taffice and kisses.
Marshmallows and similar candy
comprises the third group. They may
be eaten plain, toasted, dipped in
chocolate, rolled in cocoanut and In
many other palatable forms, also pop
In the fourth group are included
gum drops, jellies, pelly beans and
the like, giving a wide variety of can
dy made from pure and wholesome
ingredients and containing a minimum
amount of sugar.
In eating candy in any of these
four groups the consuming public is
doing two definite things to aiu con
servation. First, it is saving sugar
without neglecting the great Ameri
can sweet tooth; second, it Is ena
bling the confectioners to continue
their industry and employ their labor
Baseball Is now at hand, and the
athletic committee of the Maui Coun
ty Fair and Racing Association have
called for a meeting to be held at
the Grand Hotel reading room on
Wednesday, March 27th. , at 7 P. m.
It is hoped that there will be a large
attendance of baseball fans, so as to
get the 1918 season started right.
TAKEN CARE OF
The following Interesting an
nouncement appeared In the Hono
lulu Star-Bulletin last Monday after
noon: Recommendations On Oil
Priorities For Pacific
1. Hawaiian Islands.
2. Columbia river and Coos bay.
3. Tuget Sound and Grays Harbor.
5. Eureka, Cal.
6. Panama Canal.
7. Santa Rosalia.
8. British Columbia.
10. San Diego.
11. Chill and Peru; Corinto, Nica

Hawaii's fuel oil requirements will
come first in the list of priority or
ders of the Pacific coast district if
the recommendations on oil distribu
tion, submitted by Mr. Fitzsimmons,
vice president of the Standard Oil
Company of Cfilifornia, in charge of
the fuel oil department, are accepted
by the federal fuel oil board and the
federal shipping board. This Is the
word brought back from the coast by
L. M. Judd, who has every reason to
believe that Mr. Fitzsimmons' recom
mendations will prevail. Mr. Judd as
a member of the committee of the
chamber of commerce having the mat
ter of fuel oil requirements for Ha
waii in charge was Instructed by the
chamber to take up the problem with
the proper authorities In San, Fran
cisco. Mr. Judd says he is confident that
Hawaii's oil needs will be fully pro
vided for. The oil men of the coast
realize that Hawaii's sugar is essen
tial and that the sugar manufacturing
interests of the islands must have oil.
As all oil companies producing in
excess of 100,000 barrels of oil a year
are required to take out a federal li
cense, control of the industry rests
with the shipping board and with the
fuel oil board so that shipments ana
Solo Distributors for the Territory
distribution can be made where the
need Is greatPRt.
The above list Is Mr. Filzsimmons'
recommendation as to priorities and
shows that Hawaii has been placed
ahead of all other districts requiring
fuel oil distribution from the Pacific
coast, numbering 12.
Mr. Fitzsimmons has also given an
opinion ns to priorities in the islands,
distribution to be made according to
the appended position. The sugar In
dustry comes under Classification D.
The list follows:
A Railroads (excluding electric
Bunker fuel for boats engaged
in inter-Island service.
U. S. Government transport
U. S. Navy.
Boats calling at Hawaiian Is
lands. Public water works.
Bureau of lighthouses, includ
ing coast guards.
C Manufacture, production nnd
storage of food.
D U. S. quartermaster corps for
engineers, ordnance nnd cantonments.
Agriculture which Includes the
pumping of water for irrigation.
E Ftiblic utilities, light, heat and
F Prisons, npartment bouses, ho
tels, restaurants, laundries, court
G All other consumers.
The foregoing priorities will apply
to distribution of oil in the islands. It
is now before the fuel oil committee
which will agree on recommendations
and submit them to Washington.
In his report to President W. F.
Dillingham of the chnmber of com
merce Mr. Judd says:
"I certainly think that 'they are
giving Hawaii all that is coming to
us so far as their view of priority is
Why We Have Meatless
And Porkless Days
Bulletin No. 27, Issued by the food
administration on March 13, contains
the following interesting statements:
The meatless and porkless days on
the mainland have been temporarily
ewafl Meet Co
reduced to 'Torkless Tuesday."
This action was taken by the Food
Administration to take care of the
surplus stock of these products which
have accumulated in storage and on
farms because of lack of transporta
tion to carry them to the Allies and
to prevent a decline In the price paid
to the producer. It in desired to keep
the price of cattle, hogs and sheep
! at such a price which will encourage
production nnd which will pay the
producer to produce more cattle,
hogs nnd sheep.
Hawaii has no surplus, therefore
will continue the meatless and pork
less days as heretofore until further
The price paid our producers is
sufficiently high to encourage produc
tion so that we will have a supply for
