URGING UNFAIR REAPPORTIONMENT AGAIN
The Advertiser doesn't say so, but by implication it might be in
terred that it will support the democratic ticket if the democrats will
promise to insert a plank in their platform pledging the reapportion
ment of representation in the legislature on the basis provided by the
The reason this reapportionment has never been made is because
,'t would place absolutely the control of the whole territory in the hands
of the Oahu delegation. This is so manifestly unfair, that even though
the Organic Act may require such reapportionment it will never be
c n forced if the people outside of Oahu can prevent it. The outside
islands should not be ruled by a bunch of Honolulu politicians. On the
other hand there should be no valid objection to having the Organic
Act so amended that Honolulu might handle her own local affairs, in
cluding public work and taxation, on the same basis as mainland Am
In view of the scarcity and high price of fish in the Islands, and
the constant row between the food commission and the fishermen, which
further complicates the situation, the report that San Francisco is turn
intr the finest kind of table fish into fertilizer because it cannot be sold
comes as something of a shock. Yet this is exactly what happened
when the California food commission recently undertook to increase
the supply of sea food.
The following report explains the situation:
, "San Francisco. The Food Administration in its efforts to pro-
vme tne puonc witn an adequate supply oi nsn ai a iow pine, hlihhj
organized for this purpose a pool of the fishing industry to increase
"This pool has exceeded beyond all expectation in landing large
quantities of fish. It was immediately found, however, that the ordinary
channels of trade were .unable to absorb more than one-third or one-half
a', the most, of the amount of flat fish caught. Even this excess supply
does not represent the full producing capacity of the pool.
"On July 10 the pool produced six tons of excess fish and despite
active efforts in advertising them for sale the next day at half the market
price, only one-sixth were bought and the remainder had to be turned
into. fertilizer as the only possible method ot utilization as they could
not be kept in good condition more than 48 hours.
"It is not possible to successfully preserve these flat fish, which
include sanddabs, sole, flounders and other varieties, for consumption
in seasons of scarcity. Salmon and halibut, however, can be preserved
perfectly and will be available during the winter when the flat fish are
scarce and expensive.
"Unless the voluntary response to this food conservation measure
' is prompt and effective, the food administration may deem it advisable
to eliminate salmon and halibut from the fresh fish market during the
present over-production of cheap flat fish in order to conserve for use
,; this winter the easily preserved varieties." ' . ' .

in Mil-' ant "!ita",-'d a ew intake basin, sonic 2 years ago, it was
niii,.i',that Wailuku's water troubles were a thine of the past. But
.i the dry weather of the past week or two the condition seems to be
' .flust as bad as ever. During certain hours of the day residents of the
upper part of town are unable to draw of water from the lines, the flow
Leing so much diminished that only the lower levels secure any.
Kahului is also experiencing its normal water shortage, only per
haps more so.
' The water-works department states tnat the trouble is due simply
10 the fact that the 6-inch line is not large enough to carry the quantity
V of water needed during dry weather. TJi'ere is no lack of water at the
Unless the pipe is obstructed in smc way, it seems probable that
the engineer who laid out the work made a mistake in his figures. But
whatever the cause the only thing to do now is to find a remedy. Wai
liiku and Kahului cannot continue indefinitely in this highly dangerous
condition. The menace of fireis perhaps the most disquieting, but the
danger to health is not to be overlooked.
Unless the county cansee its way clear to put in another or a bigger
line, the matter will' perhaps have to be brought to the attention of the
legislature next February. If this last is the case, there jsjljaity but
none, too Ynuch time, to have the matter carefully. lookrfTmto by com

- ' I THE BALANCE SHEET '
. lduding 291 lost at -sea, our -forces, iu -Europe had lost up to the
.ludldof this week, a total of 15,191 men. This includes killed, wound
:cj, prisoners and r.-.issing. During the month of July alone we sent
,500,000 across to France, and now hare more than, 1,300,000 in the
' expeditionary force..
The shipping board announced this week that we are now not
simply1 launching ships faster than the Germans can sink them, but that
we art substantially building up the tonnage that has heretofore been
lost. ;On this showing there should be not less than 2,000,000 American
, fighting men in Europe before the end of the year, and another million
-by next spring. I )
American troops appear to have borne the brunt of the ttrrjfic
fighting of the past three weeks on the Manic, and have fully proven
themselves as fighters. Although our losses may seem heavy, they are
f really extremely light, being but 12.3 per thousand, 'or less than the
t.ormal mortality of most states. For example Hawaii's death rate is
&3. per thousand of population, while New York state has a death
late of 15.6 per thousand.
HOLD YOUR LIBERTY BONDS
To successfully finance the war it is necessary that owners of Lib
erty bonds hold their bonds if possible. Where for any good reason
it is necessary for them to turn their bonds into cash they should seek
the advice of their bankers.
Liberty loan bonds arc very desirable investments, and crafty in
dividuals are using various means to secure them from owners not
familiar with stock values and like matters. One method is to offer
to exchange for Liberty bonds stocks or bonds of doubtful organiza
tions represented as returning a much higher income than the bonds.
There arc various other methods used and likely to be used, some
of the gold-brick variety and others less crude and probably within the
limits of the law. All offers for Liberty bonds except for money and
at market value should be scrutinized carefully. The bonds are the
safest of investments and have nontaxable and other valuable features.
To hold your Liberty loan bonds, if possible, is patriotic. To con
sult your bankers before selling them is wise.

FOREIGN LANGUAGES IN PRIMARY SCHOOLS
Accoruiiig to the Honolulu papers Governor McCarthy has corn
led the Japanese fcmguage schools of the territory, and expressed
-oval of the custom of teaching the Japanese language to the ehil
' "t rao;. A the Governor expressed these sentiments, he
s moved by an appreciation of the very natural and human
the part of parents of whatever race that makes them
'"en to retain the customs of their own fatherland,
stales now forbid the teaching of any foreign language
,-ade schools, whether in public or private institutions.

L . to the older children, but America should insit that these
are kept out of the lower grades. This is of course a sellish attitude,
but it is one that any nation is justified in imposing upon foreigners.
1 iad we recognized the fact sooner and acted upon it the American
nation would be the stronger for it today.

some of our people at horn beside over doing theirs, the victory would
It is a sort of financial cowardice to hesitate to put your money in
United States Government jecurities, and to deliberate over the wisdom
and patriotism of the investment is to hesitate in supporting our soldiers.
