Ban On White Flour
Results In Surplus
But 15 Percent As Much Used Now
As Year Ago Food Board Calls
On Merchants To Buy From Ka
The best eridence of the fact that
the campaign to save wheat flour has
been successful on Maul is perhaps
the fact that there is now a surplus
of white flower in some purls of the
territory at least. The food adminis
tration ofnce in Honolulu sent out
notices last week to merchants call
ins attention to the fact that the Ka
hulul Store and the McBryde and Ma
kaweli Stores on Kauai have sur
pluses on hand and asking that they
supply themselves through these
sources for the time being. Hono
lulu wholesalers were also notied not
to ship any flour to either Kauai or
Maul until the stocks on these islands
have been exhausted.
J. J. Walsh, manager, of the Kahu-
lul Store, in speaking or tne mauei
stated that the demand had dropped
bo fast that they had been caught rjVed from Honolulu on Tuesday on
with so much white flour on hand business connected with his associa
tiva unless they could dispose of it . tion. Mr. Durao sustained a broken

last year. Except for the fact tnai n,ght by ft Matson 8teampr from Ka.
there is so much flour on nana, r. anapali, and are attending the fair this
Walsh expressed the opinion that tne .pg
food administration would before this
have cut the proportion of white flour
that mav be bought with other cereals
from 50 percent to 25 percent. There

heretofore, but an error in calculation
has Tesulted in a greater supply ui
flour in the islands that was needed.
Chamber Of Commerce
To Study Kula Roads
What the attitude of the chamber
of commerce should be towards help
ing secure roads and other public im
provements throughout Maui, formed
the basis of a general debate at the
chamber meeting held yesterday af
ternoon. A resolution pledging the
chamber to stand ready to Investigate
all matters of public welfare, parti
cularly in connection with the public
roads," and to assist in presenting
such matters as are deemed important
to the board of supervisors for its
consideration, was finally laid on the
table to be taken up at next month's
There was some difference of opin
ion as to whether the chamber should
investigate any matters until they
had been brought before tho board
by an individual or individuals and
had been refused relief by the board.
Several members held that the
chamber would be "butting in" if it
liotonorl tn rnirmlftlnts before the
cmorviuniM had had a chance to hear
them. Others took the viewpoint that I
the chamber should act as a clearing
house between individuals ana me
board; to neip tnose wno migai uaciasi week by Judge Burr as court
reasonable claims to attention, ana to j
help the supervisors by bringing be
fore them only matters that were
worthy of taking their time to con
sider. The matter was finally laid over to
give more opportunity for considera
tion. Kula Roads To Be Investigated
A number of kicks about the condi
tion of Kula roads resulted in the ap
pointment of a committee consisting
of R. A. Wads worth, R. B. Dodge, J.
B. Thomson, R. A. Drummond, and
George Copp, to look into the matter
and report at the next meeting.

GERMANS MAKE SLIGHT IMPRESSION ON ALLIES
New York, June 11 Germans gained center in Noyon-Montdidier
drive, but wings are holding strongly. In no place were lines pierced.
On French front enemy was unusually reckless with lives. French
army reports that every foot advance brings Germans further into
territory prepared for defense and which is thoroughly familiar to the
Allies. Every moment becomes more difficult for enemy. Allied staff I
is fully prepared and thoroughly confident. Germans are attempting
to reach Oise to threaten Allies' salient extending to vicinity of Noyon.
Paris (Official), June 11 After 24 hours of new battle the impres
sion grows that German hope will be unrealized. Allied line is bent in
center but insignificantly and French opjxisition appears to be efficacious.
Extreme violence of attack is the dominant note of the battle. Des
perate attacks are made in huge masses. This seems likely to continue
tor Jome days. The real French line receded only at one point. At
Lessons Sur Matz, Germans occupied several small villages including
Mery; Belloi, and St. Maure by repeated assaults and at great sacrifices.
South of Ressons Sur Matz Germans gained foothold at Marqueglisc.
