It was charged at the meeting that,

Of Up-Country News
Sunday, April 21st., on the grounds
of Hip Makawao Catholic church Dep
uty Sheriff M. S. Deponte and Mr. Ta
checo of the Maui Dry Goods Co., of
Wailuku nufde addresses- in Portu
guese to Dispeople on war subjects,
Liberty Bonds, War Stamps and
food conservation. That these
peeches were timely and effective
may be judged by a question asked:
Couldn't a rich man buy more than
ix pounds of white flour per month?"
This, of course, gave the speakers
a fine opportunity to declare how
ruly democratic the present war was
in every particular.
Despite the inference that might n
drawn from the question about the
rich, Makawao people are patriotical-
y keeping the Hoover schedule and
buying war securities. One small
boy in the local school has recently
purchased a J100 Liberty Bond.
The Makawao as well as the Kula
community has been "hard hit" by
the recent heavy spring rain'i, all
he young crops with the exception of
com being destroyed.
Hamakuapoko, April 19'-h., 1918.
Last night an enthusiastic meeting
was held at Hamakuapoko, about 500
of the citizens there having gathered
to hear some local men headed by Dr.
Baldwin talk on conservation and
general war topics. Dr. Baldwin ar
rived a little before 7:30 and was
, greeted by a group of children who
sang Liberty for hime. Shortly after
the Hamakuapoko string orchestra
entertained the crowd with some fine
selections. At 7:30 the Paia band led
by Father Francis opened the meeting
proper with America which aroused
J he audience and a meeting was start
ed with such enthusiasm that carried
it all through the evening at the
highest pitch and finished with the
feeling that good would come from it
for some time.
Dr. Baldwin made the first speech
and told them about the war and its
needs, necessities, etc.
P. P. Rosccrana held the stage for
the next 15 minutes and gave them a
good clear talk on the store and what
they were doing tor them in keeping
prices down. He stated that many of
the goods that were selling were be
low the New York prices owing to the
fact that he had been able to make
purchases a year ago at the then rul
ing prices that were so low.
Mrs. J. J. Hair then had the stage
and for half an hour told about the
Red Cross work In Hamakuapoko
illustrating her work by showing
samples of the work that was being
done and making the claim that the
Hamakuapoko Circle was first in
quantity and quality of work turned
in at Maui headquarters. This especi
ally pleased the ladies in the audience
of whom there were many.
Harold Rice then took the foot
lights and told the people about the
plans for the May Red Cross drive
and urged the people to give even if
they gave only 5 cents each. Mr. Rice
in his usual smooth way prepared the
way for his next visit, as a millionaire
present promised the children that if
they were busted, that ho would see
that they had the money if they would
come and see him.
Mr. Tavares next told them in a
half hour talk how to help and made
it so plain that the people saw the
necessity of buying bonds and macte
plans to dig up their money and buy
a few bonds.
During the evening Mr. Nishimura
snoke very enthusiastically to the
Japanese on the war bond3 and many
were spoken for.
The evening closed with three
cheers for Dr. Baldwin, the other
sneakers and the Paia band wlilcn had
taken such a prominent part to give
pleasure to the people of Hamakua

nage of cane ground was less than in

cold weather during 1916. The crop

acres, of which 2100 arres, yielding
15,100 tons of sugar, have been har

Further Plans For The
Big Territorial Fair
(Continued from Page One.)
A NIPPONESE ENTERTAINMENT
As a finale to the big amusement
program of the week at the Territorial
Fair, Japanese Night will be celebrat
ed with a Nipponese entertainment.
The best amateur and professional
talent in the Islands is to be obtained
by the Japanese committee, of which
K. Yamamoto, president of the Jap
anese Chamber of Commerce, is chair
man. A rapid fire series of spectac
ular features will be staged in front
of the grand stand the evening of
Saturday, June 15. This will bring
the Fair to a fitting climax and end.
While the program has not been
prepared, it seems fairly certain that
it will Include at least the better
known and most favored events, such
as jiu jitsu wrestling, Japanese fenc
ing, geisha dancing, etc. There is a
wealth of excellent talent among the
Nipponese of Hawaii, and with this to
select from the men in charge un
doubtedly will stage one of the most
brilliant programs of the kind ever
Mr. Yamamoto has agreed to see
what can be done toward arranging
for Japanese Night. Whether he will
issume personal direction of prepar
ations or assign a special committee
to take active control is not yet deter
mined. This probably will be announc
ed within the next few days.
SUBSTITUTES FOR BEEF
Since poultry and rabbits are the
most valuable beef and pork substi
tutes known, the bird and bunny
show at the Territorial Fair in June
will be one of the most important and
practical features of the big demon
Rabbits and chickens can be raised
and fattened by almost every house
holder in the Islands. The Honolulu
market stands ready to absorb all
surplus production of such meat. This
industry produces edible flesh more
rapidly than any other, and with less
trouble. The Food Administration en
dorses it and urges greater prdduc-
tion, as one of the sure methods of
solving the beef and pork-saving
problem for the nation.
Foultry and rabbit fanciers through
out the territory are urged to help
make this feature of the Fair a dis
tinct success, for it will teach graph
ically and simply the practical lessons
of breeding and raising that amateurs
need. It should arouse greater Inter
est in the business, as a patriotic war
time activity and result in production
of thousands of chickens and rabbits
during the next year by people not
now engaged in that work.
The premium list and rules for this
section of the Fair have ju3t been
printed and are ready for free distrl
bution. They show that a great num
ber of prizes are to be awarded in the
many classes and that many special
premiums will be given. No fee is re
quired of owners who exhibit. They
must pay transportation to and from
Honolulu, but free transportation will
be provided between shipping points
in the city and the fairgrounds. Cash
guarantees against loss by fire or theft
also are given. The sole requirement
for entry is that exhibits be purebred
stock and the bona fide property of
those exxhibiting the animals or
Tersons desiring copies of the
rules, premium lists and entry forms
should notify C. R. Willard, P. O. Box
News Budget From
The following items are sent to the
editor of the Maui News from Frince
Kuhio, Hawaii's delegate in Congress:
Washington, April 4 The pressing
demands for important war legislation
is delaying action in congress on Del
egate Kalanianaole's measure for war
time prohibition in the Territory. Fol
lowing a conference between the Del
egate, Chairman Houston, of the Ter
ritories Committee and Rep. Hamlin,
of Mo., also a member of the commit
tee, it was decided to seek a rule to
have the measure considered.
The passage of this measure by con
gress at this session is assured, but
Chairman Houston believes that
while the measure is a big thing so
far as Hawaii is concerned, it must
wait action of congress which has
many matters of great importance in
the conduct of the war that need im
mediate attention, such as ship-building,
aero construction, war finance,
It was hoped by the Delegate to
have the bill passed by the House on
April 1. That day was, however,
given up to the consideration of war
emergency matters. Chairman Hous
ton has been instructed by the Ter
ritories Committee to take every pos
sible legislative procedure to have
the Kalanianaole bill receive early
consideration. The only safe thing to
do, the Chairman and Delegate have
decided, is to seek a rule with the
understanding that the rule would not
be pressed until the legislative calen
dar was cleared of many of the big
war measures that are vitally con
nected with the vigorous prosecution
of the war.
It may be the end of the month, or
perhaps early in May before the
measure Is, acted upon by the House.
Meanwhile the Delegate, Dr. Wad
man and those associated with them
in their efforts to banish drink from
theTcrritory for the period of the war
are lining up their friends for the fight
against the "wets" when the measure
is finally called up for consideration.

Delegate Kalanianaole is hearing
from many of the boys in the service
of the nation. Hawaiian sailors and
soldiers have matters that are vital to
them to be straightened out here in
the departments, such as their war in
surance and allotments to their moth
ers or wives. The Delegate is taking
a keen interest in this work and said:
"It is a real pleasure to be able to do
these little tasks for the Hawaiians
now in the service and the requests
for assistance cannot come too strong
in numbers to lessen the pleasure of
Many of the Hawaiian boys now on
the mainland seeking active service
are having trouble in getting into the
aviation service, which seems to be
the favorite corps for volunteers. Just
at present, owing to the great number
of students and the few machines
available for training, the signal ser
vice has temporarily stopped accept
ing recruit students.
To aid the Board of Health at Ho
nolulu in its campaign to exterminate
rats and mice, Delegate Kalanianaole
has sent to Dr. Pratt, of the Board of
Health several thousand copies of a
government publication dealing with
this subject. He has also sent to Mr.
Eben how some publications which
should be of value In the food con
servation movement in the Territory.
