SHERIFF RICE IN
Sheriff Rice met with an auto
accident last Friday near the turn
on the Lihue side of Koloa, which
has been the scene of so many road
He was driving along at a moder
ate speed, but on rounding a turn
in ths highway, came squarely up
a&i'hist a large truck. In endeav
oring to avoid a collision he ran
his machine into the grass at the
side of the road. There proved to
be a ditch beneath the grass and
shrubbery, however, and the ma
clue went down, breaking a fend
er and causing other minor injur
ies, No one was really to blame for
the accident, the fault lying prin
cipally with the road.

Salt Lake Citv The conditions under which Germany will allow
tne exportation ot beet seed tor American planting tor next year was
submitted at a meeting of United States sugar manufacturers today and
was received with a degree of consternation. It is plain that the terms
cannot be complied with.
Germany agrees to permit the export of the seed required but
only on condition that the United States arrange for the shipment of
$850,000 of foodstuffs to Germany in exchange,
Inasmuch as this condition will be impossible of accomplishment,
it seems likely that beet sowing in the United States will be reduced
by one half next year.

A SILL FARMER
The troubles of Hee Fat. tho
one-time wealthy Chinese rice
planter of Kauai, have resulted in
SherifT Rice becoming, temporarily
at least, a small farmet.
Hee Fat has been in the courts
many times.- Pending at present
against him is a suit of several
Chinamen for an accounting, the
case involving a large amount of
rice on lands near Kapaa. As is
generally known rice has the habit
of growing, maturing and rincn
ing, and applies itself dMigently to
that business, regardless of law
suits and coutts; and that is what
the rice of Hee Fat has been doinf
while the suit has wormed its wav
through legal channels and tangles.
The suit could not be settled in
lime to save the rice, nor was n
compromise possible whereby one
side or the other might harvest it.
It was, therefore, finally agreed
that the rice should be turned over
to the sheriff to harvest,
Sheriff Rice gathered together
the laborers of the estate and they
arc now engaged in harvesting and
milling the crop. The rice (that
is the grain not, the sheriff) will
eventually be turned over to the

KAUAI PINES TO
THE CANAL ZONE
The Honolulu Advertiser says:
A. T. Longley wrote to L. D.
Timmons of Kauai yesterday sug
gesting that a possible outlook for
the Kapaa homesteaders pineapples
might be found at the Canal Zone.
Some of the big sugar freighters
leave for New York via the canal
direct from Port Allen, making
journey to Balboa in about sixteen
There are plenty of pineapples
in the Canal Zone markets from
December to March but none at all
at this titne of the year, Also at
this season there is practically no
market whatever for homesteaders'
pines grown on Kauai. The can
nery has shut down, and the fruit
cannot be shipped to San Francis
co via Honolulu because Island
steamers 'would not land it here in
time to make close connections.
The fruit would have to be ware
housed here in transit and it is
doubtful whether the fruit would
stand it. Kauai has direct con
nection with Balboa, however, and
no one knows whether Hawaiian
pines can or cannot be sold in the
zone 1 lit- only wav to hurt out is
to tr it. And so Mr. Longlev
has written to Kauai to interest
the Kauai board of trade in the
venture and get them to help out
their ovn farmeis. who certainly
are m neen of help. The quanti
ty of i.ine.- to sell is not very hire
but the men. who ,ue growing them
canum afford to lose their crop.
