THE GARDEN ISLAND TUESDAY. FEBRUARY 1. 1916
CROILL TALKS OF
KAUAI ON COAST
A Seattle paper credits Deputy
Sli eriff W. O. Crowell with saying'
Tourist visitors to the Hawaii
an islands next year who are f
the impression that the only at
tractions of the Rreup exist on the
island of Oahu and in Honolulu
will find Kauai, a smaller butverv
beautiful island, making; a strong
bid for their patronage, accord
ing. W. O. Crowell. Crowell is de
puty sheriff of Kauai. He is a
guest at the Frye.
"Because of its mountainous
character and abundant vegeta
ion," said Crowell last evening,
"the island of Kauai has been de
clared the most beautiful of the Ha
waiian group. It is on that island
that the miniature 'Colorado can
on' is to be found, a deep cut in
the earth where the scenic efforts
closely rival those of the noted
American wonder. Numerous sil
very streams and waterfalls add to
the beauty of the island.
"Heretofore the resident? of
Kauai, nearly 40.000 in number,
have relied on the beauty of the
place a s its own advertisement
and have consequently been neg
lected b y the 'seeing Hawaii
tourists. This year an effort will
be made to present to Americans
both in this country and in Hono
lulu, the port of entry to the Ha
waiian group, the scenic advanta
ges of Kauai. That the tourist
travel to that island next year will
be nearly double its former pro
portions, i? the general belief."
The joint resolution which
'would suspend the free sugar
clause of the Underwood tariff law.
introduced bv Senate Broussard in
the upper house of Congress on
January 5, and which has occas-
sioned so much discussion, was as

WEEKLY LETTER OF
It is hoped that the following
etter from the Marketing Division,
Honolulu, may prove of interest
to enterprising small farmers :
There is very little Island butter
n the market at the present time.
All of the butter produced in Olaa
and vicinity is being sold in Hilo.
Island eggs have been more
plentiful during the past week,
with the exception of two or three
days when they were rather scarce
and in some cases brought as high
as 70 a dozen for select eggs. The
prospects for the coming week are
that eggs will not go above 50 a
dozen for the No. 1 grade, and
they are likely to drop even below
this betore long.
Young chickens in good condi
tion are in demand, as well as
Muscovy ducks. Turkeys are not
much in demand and it is likelv
that the wholesale price will have
to be dropped to 35? in order to
The recent stormy weather has
been bad for all kinds of green
vegetables, and with only a few
exceptions, the prices are higher
and the produce in poorer condi
tion than originally. Oahu cab
bage is coming in in larger quanti
ties, and from now. on very little
cabbage will be imported from the
coast. On Monday there will be a
arge shipment of sweet corn from
Molokai which should sell well.
Green peppers are bringing the
exceedingly high price of 109 a
pound due to small supply. There
is good demand for Island Irish
potatoes but ver.v few in the mar
ket. A large shipment of toma
toes from Kona bv the last Mauna
Loa brought verv good prices due
to short crop on Oahu. Cucum
bers are selling as high as 75? a
dozen, a record price.
Hawaiian oranges are selling
fairly well but should be graded
better for best results. The poha
market is uncertain. Very few
strawberries were received during
the past week due to excessive
This has been a good year for
the marketing of beans, and ac
cording to reports fiom the main
land good prices will continue
well into this year. All those who
have available land that will grow
beans would do well to put in a
few acres of Maui red or navy
beans. The soldiers on Oahu are
using a great many of the Maui
reds, and there is a good market
for any surplus on the mainland
at the present time. The Quarter
masters Department of the army
will use Island grown beans of
either the red or white varieties if
offeted in the quantities desired,
and at mainland prices. There is
only a limited local sale for calico
beans and no sale on the coast.
Those intending to plant beans
should do so as soon as possible.
Heir To Fortune.
The following from a Honolulu
paper concerns a travelling sales
man of Theo. H. Davies & Co
who is well known on Kauai:

Mr. Gorman has not yet complied
with the legal formalties of taking
over the property, but has placed
the matter in the hands of solici
tors. Mr. Gorman left on one of
his regular business trips to the
islands last night.
