How It is Working In Honolulu
With a view of aiding the establish
in;: of the work on Maui, the Rod
Cross of Honolulu has sent the follow
ing outline of how the enterprise Is
organized and managed in that city:
"The Red Cross Shop opened in, Ho
nolulu on October the 1st, and like
all the lied Cross Shops on the main
land, is proving a great success, the
proceeds for the first two days being
iiono. Every day so far has seen the
! -.hop full of buyers and busy sales
women. "The woman in charge of all the
work. Mrs. Ferdinand lledemann, Is
called the director and holds the posi
tion for the islands. In each branch
a shop s-upi tintendent is head of the
saleswomen. She is responsible for
their promptness in attendance and
for the supply as as many extra stiles
women as may be necessary from
time to time. She must arrange to
have every article coming into the
shop placed in the stock room, which
is set aside for the purpose, and all
articles must be properly valued and
priced by the committee which she
will appoint for this work. She ar
ranges to have all donations recorded
with the name of the donors and will
have proper acknowledgment and
thanks sent to the giver. She sees
that demands or orders by customers
for ppecial articles not in stock are
put on file so that the buyer superin
tendent may fill out these orders.
"So that a steady stock will be on
hand, the "buyer's" duty is to secure
merchandise through individual effort,
through treasure drives, or through
the publicity route. She marks out
districts, appoints a head for each,
and arranges for her committee mem
bers to call for offered donations. The
buyer also keeps in touch with the
superintendent of the Red Cross Shop
and supplies, as far as possible, all
Fpecitil demands made by customers.
"A publicity manager is in close
touch with I he daily press, and will
reach the public at all times, serving
as a medium between them and the
"The Cashier-Treasurer receives
and banks all moneys received. She
or her assistant is seated at the cash
register during the working hours of
the shop and received and files all
The sales ciiecks and gives out the
chance. At the end of each morning
she tabulates the sales, noting them
in a simple ledger and sees that the
amount on hand balances with tfie
"In this shop the rules of all busi
ness houses are comformed with, as
each saleswoman signs her initials
on all stiles checks, also the price of
the article sold and the amount of
money given by the customer.
"As till things are renovated, re
paired and put in good condition for
sale, a renovating manager is respon
sible for the making over of old into
"In connection with Red Cross
Shops is a salvage department where
such things as old newspapers, beer,
soda water, and ginger ale bottles,
rice, grain and cement bags, jelly
glasses, rope, copper, brass and zinc,
kerosene, cracker and salad oil tinn,
and clean old rags are accepted, as a
market has been found for such things.
"The Inter-Island Steamship Com
pany will carry free of charge mer
chandise between Honolulu and the
"Such has been the interest taken
in the shop in Honolulu that on the
first day two shops instead of one
were opened. Almost everything has
been donated, rooms, painting of
rooms, labor, dodgers for advertising,
slides for the movies, electricity stock
and the services of all the people
working at the shop.
"All proceeds are turned into the
Red Cro-s, and as the money comes
from articles that might otherwise
not have been put to use the Govern
ment's request to conserve is com

Much Farm Work Now
In Makawao District
In the farming region of upper Ma
kawao much plowing is being done
this autumn. Haleakala Ranch will
plow up 300 acres; Harold Rice, 300
acres; W. F. Rogue, 50 acres; and
there are numerous others who are
planning extensive plantings.
The preparing and baling of corn
stalks for feed is a new industry in
thi's vicinity. It is sold at $60 per
ton to the plantations.
The new- marniinmizprt Paln-M.-ikii

The Ccmnty or the Contractor, or j
perhaps both should be congratulat- j

Eight Maui Cases Now

Searby Leaves H.C.&S.
Joins American Factors
The news from Honolulu to the
Daily Wireless on Monday, to effect
that William Searby, mill superinten
dent of thp Hawaiian Commercial &
Sugar Company, had accepted a posi
tion as head of the engineering de
partment of the American Factors Co.
Ltd., came as a big surprise to his
friends and associates, none of whom
seem to have had any inkling of his
intentions in this regard. Mr. Searby
has been in Honolulu since list week.
In connection with the matter the
Honolulu Star-Bulletin has the flolow
ing: "William Searby, superintendent of
Puunene mill of the Hawaiian Com
mercial Sugar Co., one of the most
able sugar engineers In the territory
and an inventor of note, has joined
the staff of the American Factors,
Ltd., as superintendent of the mill
manufacturing and engineering de
partment. This department Is a
development on a wider scope of the
position of consulting engineer held
by R. Renton Hind, who departed re
cently for the Philippines.
"He joined the Hawaiian Commer
cial in 1900 as head sugar boiler and
has been with the company ever since.
His inventions of a multiple effect eva
porator, cane shredding machine and
cane leveling machine have been im
portant contributions to the develop
ment of the industry In the islands.
In addition he conducted the first de
monstration in Hawaii, proving that
commercial white sugar could be made
by use of small quantities of vegeta
ble charcoal without conventional
"Searby is a native of England, but
came to the Pacific coast In his teens
and began his career with the Alame
da Sugar Co., in 1890."
