SSLVA SAYS RICE
TO SWEEP KAUA
"Charles A. Rice, Republican
candidate fcr Delegate to Congress
wiil sweep the island of Kauai,
Politically, at the routing primary
and those who ar supporting him
will be satisfied with the result of
their work now," says J. I. Silva,
a prominent business man and po
litician of Eleele, Kauai.
Silva knows the political situa
tion of Kauai so well that whatever
he says in matters political, will
be accepted as final.
Silva, while a member of the
house of representatives, of the
legislature of 1907, was called by
his colleagues the "red salt" re
presentative from Kauai. This was
due to his presentation to each
member of the house of a small
bag of red salt, brought from his
place at Eleele.
C W. Spitz of Nawiiiwili pre
dicts that Rice will leave Kauai
witn a clear majority over Kuhio
of 600 votes.

PROFESSOR T. A. JAGGAR
Director of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory
Professor Jaggar spent three months in Japan studying this
r eruption, February to April, 1914.
Following are' interesting ex
tracts from the las', Liter of the
Marketing Division. Honolulu:
The sa!s for tiie week totalled
S1242.'i9 from 62 consignments.
I.titiS AND POULTRY. Fresh
imi-ivvii eggs are getting scarcer
and scarcer and the price has ad
V.HII.V.U m me nignest ngure in
monius, with indications that It
will go still higher. Duck eggs are
scarce and price has advanced.
the price of chickens remains
about the same as last week. There
is a good demand for young chick
ens and the supply i s limited,
L,ast week a large shipment of
Muscovy ducks was received and
a good supply is still on hand. It
would be advisable not to ship any
during the week.
VEGETABLES. Irish Potatoes,
first grade are Selling for ?1.50 a
!UU ios. and small potatoes as low
as $1 .25 a 100 lbs. Sweet potatoes
are plentiful with the best grades
selling for as low a price as $1.00
a 100 lbs. A good many sweet po
tatoes received have been riddled
with worm holes. Before shipping
break open a iew and make sure
that they arc alright. Weevily
sweet potatoes are a total loss when
shipped to Honolulu. There are
no island onions in the market.
Cabbage is in demand at 2!?? a
pound stripped. A great deal of
the cabbage received is in very
poor condition, due to bagging
wnen wet. Make sure that cabbage
is dry before shipping. The mar
ket is bare of sweet corn and would
be a good seller at this time. Tur
nips are in demand at very good
prices. Now is the time to ship.
FRESH FRUITS. Chinese ban
nanas are exceedingly cheap and
plentiful. Cooking bananas are in
demand at the usual gcod prices.
Limes are fairly plentiful and the
price is a little lower than usual.
Strawberries are scarce and in de
DRIED BEANS AND GRAIN, I
Red Kula and Calico beans are
selling well at good prices. Small
whites are also in demand. No
dried peas have yet anived. Th-re
would be a good market for these
at . Small grain, yellow, is
selling at fair pr'ces, considering
the low price of Manchurian corn.
Large yellow corn is selling well
at good prices.
LIVE STOCK, MEATS AND
HIDES. The hog supply is short
and the price has advanced one
cent over last week, both for live
weight and dressed pork. The
dressed meat quotation remains
about the same.
During the week an attempt
was made to secure a revolving
fund from the Territorial govern
ment, to carry on the work of the
Division and insure prompt pay
ments for the farmers. This was
refused and nothing can be done
until the Legislature meets. It is
hoped, however, that a working
fund can be secured from some of
the commercial organizations o r
from some bank, in order to help
out the work of the Division. As
the 'impropriation for the market
ing v.-ork is very small and the
commissions and charges on con
signments do not amount to a
great deal, the Division is doing
away with its ware house and is
cutting down the office force.

Under the abne heading the Chic
edi'orial comments on the tariff situa
fen ing to sugar:
Occasionally v. have poin'td out
jverdone- and had hem overdone.
Talk about cheap Argentine beef and taking off thv d'.
When the taking ends, von find that you have discouraged the
American farmer and beef is dearer.
It is all vet v well to talk ."bout free sugar and the poor man's codec
cup, and to take the tariff off the sugar as this country has done.
But when the talking ends. y u find that the American growers of
sugar are discouraged, disheartened, with good cause.
Southern cane sugar plantations re abandoned.
Northern beet-sugar enterprises are "riven up in despair.
And now the poor man, with his coffee cuu and his tea cup. finds
that sugar has gone up from two to four cents a pound, and is Ki"H
higher because taking off that duty dis ouraged American sugar
growers and made the country dependent on the foreign sugr.r grower.
This need not be very serious vet. We learn something by the
shutting off of the supplies of Uet sugar from Germa.iv, and we can
perhaps learn some other things.
We ought to know, without the lesson of war or hardship, through
increased price, THAT IT PAYS TO ENCOURAGE YOUR OWN
FAMILY, keep work in the nation, to arrange for protection from high
prices, TO MAKE YOUR LAWS FOR ALL YOUR OWN CITIZENS,
whether they be fanners who raise cattle, plantation owners who pro
duce sugar, mechanics who turn out skilled work.
