THE MAUI NEWS, FRIDAY, MARCH 22, 1918.
The Experiment At Olaa
Nothing of more importance to the
cane growing industry of these Is
lands than the experiment at Olaa in
making paper from bagasse could
well be imagined. It bears much the
same relation to the production of
sugar that the manufacture of gaso
line, benzine, naphtha, kerosene and
distillate do to the marketing of fuel
oil; or the coke, gas, and chemical
industries do to coal mining. If good
paper can be made from waste bagas
st which represents to the mill noth
ing but its fuel value in equivalents,
it will be to the Territory as if an
inexhaustible mine of gold had been
discovered. There is a world wide
shortage of paper. Flippancy about
the Bureau of Public Information and
the Congressional Record aside, it is
a real and a serious shortage. All
the newspapers of New York City
have doubled their price. If the
shortage continues, they will have to
reduce the size of their issues and
raise their advertising rates. Hono
lulu papers already have raised their
rates. In England, Fance, and parti
cularly Germany, the shortage is even
more acute. Costs of publication in
Germany have appreciated between
four and five hundred per cent. Nor
is the paper famine one that is likely
to be relieved over night. News
print is made from spruce pulp, and
the world's supply of spruce pulp is
steadily diminishing. If a new supply
can be discovered in bagasse, the ef
fect will be felt wherever cane Is
grown and ink is used to blacken
paper. Hilo Daily Tribune.
The Future Of Hackfeld And Company
emy just what they propose to do to
him. Their grand strategy is simple,
McCandless and his co-belligerents
make no bones about telling the en
and anybody may read it for five
cents in The New Freedom, McCand
less, weekly organ. They want to
take the Hackfeld plantations away
from Hackfelds and distribute them
among the other agencies. "Once
there were five of them, now there
are but four," as the nursery rhyme
runs. This candor simplifies matters
for the custodian of. enemy alien
property. The property is now in
his hands and there are four things
he may do with it:
1 He may restore it to the con
trol of the present board of directors
which seems most unlikely. The
ownership being overwhelmingly alien
If there is any administration for the
benefit of the enemy to be done, the
Government is likely to have a hand
In' the doing. . .
2 He may divide the property
among the spoilers, as McCandless
advises which seems more unlikely
yet. It is doubtful, indeed, if such
an ingenuous suggestion could be
made outside this Territory. The
endleBS aftermath of squeals and
scandals which it invites is not an
investment to attract any prudent
' 3 He may put the property up at
aft'tion to the highest bidder. Legis
lation empowering him to do this Js
now pending in the Senate.
4 He may administer the property
for the owners until peace Is declared.
This newspaper does not propose
to instruct the custodian in his duties.
Not all the wisdom in the world is
confined to the offices of its editors.
The public at large had great inter
est la the future of Hackfeld and
Company, so long as " remained in
the hands of a few private indivi
duals. Now that the government is
in control, that interest is largely
satisfied. What may happen here
after is merely matter of lively curi
osity. The only persons now active
with advice and exhortation are those
who stand to profit or to lose. Daily
f number of horses and mules in ser-
the American army In France grows,
so will the number of animals. A
high military officer has stated that,
apart frooa man, the horse Is the most
important factor In the war, whilo
another authority has declared: If
we ha) a hundred guns for every
German gun, and a hundred shells
for every German shell, and our sup
ply of ln,nes nave out, the Allies
could not win the war.' The service
of the horse in this war Is beyond
compuU.l.cn; his value, worth and
usefulness would only be fully realiz
ed, if by any chance the supplies of
horses in America should fail. Our
own army will require an enormous
number of animals. If America
should send to Europe an army of
5,000,000 men, she will have to trans
port to France, and maintain there,
a force of 1,250,000 horses and mules
one animals for every four men.
Once within the zone of war, the
horse assumes a value he never pre
viously possessed. He is precious.
The army knows what a few hun
dred more or less mean in a tight
place, what a few thousand cavalry
may mean in a pursuit or rout. And
the horse is cared for at its value."
In each warring country these or
ganizations have rendered invaluable
service, and a high British officer, on
a visit to the War Department at
Washington, said: "Only when the
full history of this war comes to be
written will the world realize what
magnificent service has been render
ed to the British forces in France by
the Royal Society for the Prevention
of Cruelty to Animals." So It will
be seen that to do our full duty the
Red Star ,as well as the Red Cross,
must be fully supported. Therefore,
we particularly call the attention of
California stockmen to the former or
ganization, to support which is most
certainly a patriotic duty.
The intended increase in the force
of horses and mules with the Ameri
can army at the front in France can
be best understood by reading what
appeared in our Horse Market last
week: "The United States needs
horses and mules for its auxiliary re
mount depot at Camp Fremont, the
American Red Star Relief Society an
nounced yesterday for Captain
Charles L. Rogers, commanding offi
cer at the depot. Horses offered for
sale may be taken directly to the de
pot and will be cared for at the ex
pense of the Government, which will
pay $140 for each horse and $215 for
each mule which it accepts. Horses
must be from 15 to 16 hands high,
weight 1,000 to 1,200 pounds, and
must be from six to ten years old. No
white horses will be accepted. Mules
must stand 13 hands, 3 inches, to 16
hands, 1 inch, high, 1,200 to 1,400
pounds in weight, and 5 to 10 years
old. The Government will pay cash."
We believe that the above is only one
of the many notices now emanating
from the War Department, that many
of them include light drafters for
gunners, and that the total number
of animals required will exceed a
million. It will be seen, therefore,
that the care of those animals which
reach the front will prove just as im
portant to America as it has to her
allies and her enemies, and that the
services of the Red Star Relief Socie
ty will, indeed, help in winning the

The Horse In War
Mltni Moll! TJpWH!
I enclose a cutting from a mainland
Tinner that should prove interesting
readine to stock raisers, amongst
whom are many that believe horse
breeding for profit (especially of the
draught type) is a thing of the past.
I believe, notwithstanding the very
general and growing use of auto trucks,
caterpillars, etc., that good horses
can, and should be bred and the
type kept at its best; and those stock
raisers who keep along these Hues
will (even after the war is over)
reap a great benefit.
Your very sincerely,
L. von TEMPSKY.
The article is as follows:
Some time ago this Journal called
attention to the establishment of a
branch of the American Red Star Ani
mal Relief Society in this State. This
society was founded by William O.
Stillman, of Albany, New York state,
who is president of the Aemrican
Humane Association, at the sugges
tion of Secretary of War Baker, for
the purpose of rendering to horses
emploved in war the same services
that the Red Cross is rendering to
soldiers. In America, as in the case
ef Geat Britain, France, Germany,
' Italy and Austria, all of which na
tions have highly equipped veterinary
staffs engaged, the assistance of

They are shown parading through the streets of New York prior to embarking.
