Austria Out Of War
Citizen Of Hungary Believes Revolu
tion Will Complete Dual Monarchy's
Downfall Large Element Not In
Sympathy With Germany
That Austria is to all practical pur
poses out of the war for good, is the
expressed belief of George A. Faik;
of Walluku, a native of Hungary, who
came to America Just before the
great war broke out in Europe. Mr.
Faik came to the Islands as soldier
in the United States Army, and for
over two years past has been in the
employ of the Maul Publishing Com
pany, in capacity of foreman of the
Faik was a printer in Budapest. He
also served a term of enforced service
in the Austrian army, and following
that a prison sentence for writing a
criticism of conditions as he had
found them in the army. He was in
a position up to the time he left of
knowing pretty thoroughly the senti
ment of the people towards theli
rulers, and basing his present opinions
on this knowledge he believes that re
ports of dissatisfaction in the Aus
trian army have in no sense been
"The army that Austria has been
driving against the Italians has had
no heart in the struggle", Faik de
clares. "For the greater part it is
composed of people heretofore not
unfriendly to the Italians, and these
have been fighting unwillingly. Now
that they have been thrown back they
can never be whipped into shape for
any more real fighting. I do not be
lieve Austria will be able hereafter
to play any important part in the
People In Distress
"I am also sure that conditions
among the people of Austria and
Hungary are even more desperate
than have been reported. I have read
in a Magyar paper that the people of
Budapest are going barefooted in
great numbers, a thing that had never
been known before the war. And yet
while I was still in Hungary big
strikes and riots were very frequent
as protests against various forms of
oppression. The socialists are very
strong fn Hungary, and well organiz
ed in spite of all the government
was able to do to prevent. The
socialist organization in Budapest was
so perfect that a force of 100,000 men
could be mobilized in two or three
hours, and this without the police
having any previous knowledge. There
is no doubt in my mind that strikes
and food riots are making the Aus
trians much trouble at the present
Revolution May End War
In fact Faik believes that the war
will not last over the coming winter.
He looks for a tremendous revolution
first in Austria-Hungary and then in
Germany itself. The reports of the
past week of rebellion among the
troops in Hungary he thinks is but
the fore-runner of the great upheaval
soon to come.
Faik, who made his declaration of
intention to be come an American
citizen shortly after he came to Am
erica, has been prevented from com
pleting his naturalization on account
of America's entry into the war.
Through a recent act of congress re
lative to naturalization of enemy alien
subjects who have served in the U.
S. Army, he hopes, however, to be
permitted soon to take his oath of
allegiance to this country.
HUN POLICY OF VIOLENCE
HAVING BIG BACK KICK
Zurich, May 27 In the opinion of
the Vienna Arbeiter Zeitung, "the
Prussian faith in violence has once
more been proved a vain supersti
tion." "The Prussian Junker class," the
paper continues," and the German coal
and iron magnates, accustomed to
rule their own people with a brutal
violence, have inoculated a great part
of the German nation with a supersti
tious faith in voilence. They know
of no other source of strength except
"The peace by violence concluded
in the East was also to have captured
the enemies in the West; the blows
of the German arms were to compel
the western foe to negotiate. The
change of sentiment in England shows
how false was this calculation. It is
precisely the victories at the eastern
front that have strengthened the will
for war In England."

Two Good Ball Games
Played Last Sunday
In a high-grade game of ball at the
Wailuku park, last Sunday, the Wal
luku team sustained its reputation by
defeating the Puunene's by the neat
score of 5 to 2. Baldwin, pitching for
the Wailukus, fanned 9; while Wicke
struck out 7. The latter allowed but
2 bases on balls, to Baldwin's 1. The
game was interesting all through and
showed some pretty team work on
the part of both teams.
In the junior league the Orientals
put It over the Cubs by a score of 9
to 6. The game was somewhat loose,
but made up in excitement what It
may have lacked in science.
Next Sunday's Ganes
The games for next Sunday will be
between the Wailukus and the Paias,
and the Paia' Juniors and Cubs. Both
games promise to be good ones.
The teams have been somewhat
benefitted by the home coming of a
number of school boys from Honolulu.
Amonk these are Henry Pogue, Clar
ence Baldwin, Ruben Cockett and
Eddie Rodrigues. These four are all
with the Wailuku team.
The games still suffer from small
it tendance, possibly due to so many
men being away in the national
suard and through the draft. The
quality of the playing deserves much
better support than it has been get

1918 Pineapple Pack
Will Break Record
A record summer pineapple pack of
approximately 3,500,000 cases, of
which probably 500,000 cases will be
taken by the United States for the
use of its soldiers, sailors and other
military and naval attaches, is indi
cated by figures now in the hands of
A. H. Tarleton, secretary of the Ha
waiian Pineapple Packers' Associa
tion. The island of Oahu is expected
to produce approximately 2,7000,000
cases, Maui 375,000 cases and Kauai
The best previous record for the
pineapple industry in the Hawaiian
Islands was made in 1915, when 2,-
6G9.616 cases were packed. The crop
of 1916 yielded 2,609,483 cases, and
that of last year 2,607,031 cases. The
1918 crop, it is estimated, will make
a difference of approximately $14,-
000,000 in the trade balance of Ha
waii. The price for pineapples is expect
ed to touch record figures this year,
especially if the United States gov
ernment decides to Increase its initial
requisition of 475,000 cases, as will
probably be done. The packers, who
desire in every way to aid the suc
cessful prosecution of the war and
the efforts to preserve the health and
good spirits of our fighting men, have
welcomed the decree that the govern
ment shall have first call on their
products, and will cheerfully accept
the price which may be set by the
federal food ' dictators, feeling sure
that, the latter will aflow affair work
ing profit to be made.
The vast majority of the pines com
posing this year's crop, which has al
ready begun to move to the mainland,
will be of the Smooth Cayenne va
riety, with hereand there a shipment
of Hilos, whlcR are now being culti
vated in considerable quantities on
Maui and 'Kauai. Arrangements are
now being made for the transporta
tion of the crop and the packers an
