Wheat And Meat
To The Editors Of All Newspapers:
July 15, 1918.
The Food Administ ration takes this
opportunity to thnnk the editors of
the newspapers in Hawaii for the ex
cellent cooperation and support they
have Riven the Food Administration
in getting the message of conserva
tion and production to the people. It
is certainly wonderful what has been
done, and without the aid of
the newspapers it would have
been impossible to have accomplish
ed the same results. While much has
been done, (1p job is not yet finished
and wo take this opportunity to draw
your attention to some of the most
Important problems before us now.
Mr. Hoover is expected to hold a
conference in Kurope with the differ
ent food controllers of those associat
ed with us in the war and after this
conference there will be announced
the Food Conservation Trogram for
the 1918 crop of wheat. This pro
gram will be announced only after
the European conference but it seems
to this ofllce to be good policy to con
tinue in a large measure the' present
program of wheatless days and meals
In order that a surplus of wheat may
bo acquired at central shipping points
in the United States as an insurance
policy against any eventuality, and
we ask that you so prepare the minds
of your readers in your editorial to
accept whatever wheat conservation
plan the Administration announces
after the European conference.
Owing to the perishable nature of
meat, it has been necessary to use
different localities in order to effect
the great conservation on this article.
With our present "meatless" and
"porkless" days and meals, it is esti
mated by the best authorities that
Hawaii's meat supply and demand
will nearly balance each other. For
this reason our program in the Is
lands on meat is quite clear that we
should continue as we are until such
a time as our meat supply exceeds
This article Is linked up like every
other nrticle of food which is scarce
on account of transportation and pro
duction. We are pleased to say that
the land owners and rice planters of
Hawaii have responded splendidly to
the request of the Food Administra
tion to increase production in Hawaii
by putting under cultivation nearly
every available acre of rice land.
Oui normal production in Hawaii of
rice !s about 20 percent of our con-sump-Jon
from which you can see
how i dependent we are upon steam
ship transportation for the bulk of
our line supply, but this is not the
only thing which makes rice hard to
obtain. There is practically no avail
able rice at the present time to be
had in California due to the large
quantities taken by the government
for oversea shipment. The supply of
rice in Japan is also very short, so
much so, that the Japanese govern
ment have found it necessary to im
port rice from Siam and other count
ries to relieve their shortage; and al
so to curtail the exportations to
countries that were not entirely or
largely dependent upon Japan for
their supply of rice as is Hawaii.
Everything possible is done to main
tain f.n adequate supply of rice in
Hawaii, and while the situation at
the present time is not as good as
we would like to see it, there is no
cause for immediate worry and the
situation will be very materially im
proved with the coming in of the new
crop in September and October both
in California and Japan.
Gardens Very Important
Careful consideration of these facts
will impress upon you the necessity
of stopping the waste, and we ask
that you drive this message home to
your readers whenever it is possible
to do so. This brings us to the ques
tion of home production, school gar
dens, war gardens, and camp gardens.
This cannot be dwelled upon too
strongly and the encouragement of
this work is good business for the
Territory, whether it be peace time
or war time, because every pound of
food produced by the individual in
creases his earning capacity by way
of the store merchandise which the
home grown article replaces. The
wonderful work that has been done
in this direction in the past year is
very difficult to estimate in the total
value in dollars or the total quantity
in pounds, bushels or barrels, but re
ports which we have had from store
keepers indicate that their sales of
many articles imported food pro
ducts have decreased as high as BO
percent and that they have been re
placed by foods grown in school,
home, and camp gardens. We ask
that you encourage this work editori
ally and in your newspaper columns.
We are working on lists 6g import
We are working on lists of import
figures are available we will make
, comparisons which will show more
definitely what the work of conserv
ation and home production has done
for the Territory of Hawaii in dol
lars and cents, and quantities of food
The manner in which the public
responded to the request of the Food
Administration shows" that they are
behind the government in the fight
to make the world a place fit to live
in of free people.

Irish Women Try To
Take Pledge To Do All In Power To
Make Difficult England's Plans-
Have New Patron Saint On Matter
The collapse of Russia was partly
due to the lack of food supply for the
army and the people.
Deri in, July 6 (Correspondence of
The Associated Tress) Irish women
wore organized for participation in
the anti-conscription campaign in Ire-
land us never before in the history
of political Rgitation in Ireland.
Much is now heard of the "Women's
riodge", which was the leading fea
ture of the women's side of the anti
conscription campaign. The pledge
reads as follows:
"Because the enforcement of con
scription on any people without their
cons-ont is tyranny, wo are resolved to
resist the conscription of Irishmen.
We will not fill the places of men
deprived of their work through refus
ing enforced military service. We will
do all in our power to help the famil
ies of men yho suffer through enforc
ed military' service."
The occasion chosen for the univer
sal signing of this pledge by the wo
men of Ireland was the festival of
St. Colunibeille, a national saint much
talked nbout at the present time on
account of some war prophecies at
tributed to him, including one in
which he is said to have predicted
The woman's pledge was part of a
scheme with which conscription was
resisted. Wherever possible, the sign
ing was accomplished by floral de
monstration and organizations taking
part carried wreaths, crosses and oth
er symbols to decorate the place of
signing. The ceremony also was ac
companied by pilgrimages and proces
sions to some place of veneration
such as a church, holy well, site of
altar kx penal days, or some local
memorial of national history.

crop this year and for several seasons

best in Haiku, good pigeon pea yield

The mill is now in working order and

Mr. Fleming reports very good gen

fine crop of pineapples just coming
off. His alfalfa is giving promise of
heavy yield and compares well with
the splendid crop of the Pioneer Mill
At Camp 1 alfalfa has been cut and
baled. This cured and baled alfalfa
will be used in stock feeding rations.
Is better than some of the imported
hay which Is. often badly broken up.
