1 Representative JuluiH Knhn, of
nl., ranking minority member of
le House Military Affairs Comniit-
e, in a statement Riven out lierc
"In 1912 the Democratic , iarty
romiscd tlio people of the United
tates to reduce the hi eh cost of
ving," said Mr. Kalm. "They
ulminated against the protective
nrifT and blamed the latter for con
.rihutinp to the increase of prices
fur food products of all kinds. This
,s the plank of that platform:
" 'The high cost of living is a scri
mis problem in every American
home, The Republican Tarty, in
its platform, attempts tot-scape from
esponsibility for present conditions
by denying that they aie due to a
protective tariff. We take issue with
them on this subject, and charge
that excessive pricVs result in a
large measure from the high tariff
laws enacted and maintained by the
Republican 1'arly and from trusts
and commercial conspiracies foster
ed and encouraged by such laws,
and we assert that no substantial
relief can be secured for the people
without import duties on the neces
saries of life are materially reduced
and those criminal conspiracies
"Like many another plank it
seems to have been inserted in the
platform in the nature of 'molasses
to catch flies.'
"instead of reducing the price of
living under this Democratic ad
ministration the cost of food pro
ducts has constantly increased. Un
cle Sam himself feels the pinch. He
is the greatest purchaser of commod
ities in the United States. lie can
buy cheaper than anybody else be
cause he buys in such large ouanti
ties. In 1913 at the time the Demo
crats took p'osession of the country
and promised to reduce the cost of
living he was paying twenty-three
cents a day per ration for every en
listed man in the United States Ar
my. That was the cos-t of the army
ration at that time. The ration it
self has not been changed for about
eight years. The same articles of
food that were given the soldiers in
1909 are supplied to them today.
Acting quartermaster (ieneral H. tS.
Sharpe, who testified before the
Committee on Military Affairs last
March, said that for the year 1917
the cost of each ration would be
thirty cents. Its cost has increased
steadilv since 1913. Every year saw
an increase until now the ration
' amounts to thirty cents per -day.
There are approximately 2."0,(X)0
men in the regular 'army and the
National (iuard at the present time.
An increase of seven cents per ra
tion means that the taxpayers of
Uncle Sam have to pay !?17,.00 a
day more than they would have had
to pay in 1913 to feed Uncle Sam's
soldiers. At that rate the increased
cost to feed the army amounts each
month to 8 "''."), (K)() or (, 300,000
per year more than when the Re
publicans were in control. The tax
payers are called upon to meet this
heavy increase. Rut it is not only
the fond for the army that has in
creased in cost. The cost of cloth
ing, shoes and equipment generally
has gone up in proportion.
"The records of the government
discloses the fact that under the
Underwood tarilThill, which is prob
ably the lowest tarilf this country
has ever had, prices have advanced
steadily ami the end is not yet.
' "The Democratic 1'arty proclaim
ed in 1912 that the protective tarilT
was responsible for the high cost of
living. It was a beautiful theory
with which they fooled many of the
voters of this country. The people
are wiser today. I'nder Democratic
free trade prices have arisen to the
highest point in American history.
"Will the vofcrs again be fooled
by Democratic sophistry in Novem-ler?"
BE BONUS MONTH
The following appeared in the
commercial page of the Advertiser:
Last March the Hawaiian Sugar
Planters' Association recommended
the adoption of a new Ixmus system
by the individual plantations of
which the association is composed.
As a result of . calculations by the
bureau of lalwr and statistics a
schedule was devised which, on the
basis of five and a half and six cent
sugar, would return to all those en
gaged in the actual production of
this staple a proportionate share of
the greatly augmented profits.
This schedule generally adopted
by the plantations throughout Ha
waii, increased the monthly wage of
fill those whose employment ivas
constant from forty to sixty per.
cent, but it did not specifically pro
vide when the balance of the bonus
due to employes upon October 31,
the end of the Ixjnus year, should
Patt Paid Before
A part of the war profit was to
Ik; paid at the end of each month
or at the regular payday. The re
mainder was to be disbursed as it
formerly had been, some time in
November or December after the
averages had all been made up.
This year, owing to the increased
bonus rate and its "application to
da j' men and contractors alike, it is
estimated that approximately four
million dollars will be due and pay
able upon the bonus alone to plan
tation employes upon October 31.
In addition to this amount, the re
gular monthly pay rolls have to be
To Pay By Islands
It has therefore leen definitely
decided by the trustees of the Ha
waiian Sugar Planters' Association,
in order to relieve the burden upon
the local banks, that all plantations
located upon the islands of Oahu
and Hawaii will, where practicable,
pay the balance of the bonus due
upon Octolier 31 during the - month
of November, while those plantations
located upon Maui and Kauai will
pay the bonus during December,
Resides bonuses paid to the plan
tation men practically all" the agen
cies, transportation companies and
what might be called the subsidiary
or dependent companies engaged in
the sale and handling of the crop
will also pay gratuities at the end
of the year. Hawaii in this way
shares it prosperity with all who
have any part in the big industry
When prices and profits are abnor
mal all benefit just as when the
price goes down to the 870 basis or
below, all suffer.
PLANNING A PARK
FOR WAIMEA LANDS
(iovernor Pinkham is taking up
for consideration the plan proposed
to him by (Jeorge K. Larrison for
converting a large portion of the
upper Waimea lands, Kauai, into a
In brief they propose the setting
aside of land at an elevation of
some 40(X) feet on the. Kauai high
lands and turning it into a territori
al or even national resort for tour
ists and island people as a campsite.
The governor said that he is much
interested in the scheme which Lar
rison proposed to him as a citizen

"I have talked with several Ka

governor today, "and thev are all
enthusiastic over it. They say it
would be a great place for recupera

Cyrus (irecn, carpenter of Hono

week. He constructed several build

the Hanamaiilu school house. '

There is no smoke nor odor. Fried foods are free from
the taste of grease. They now are tasty and crisp. They
are made more digestible, for Crisco is all vegetable.
The same Crisco ran be used to fry fish, onions, dough
nuts, etc. , merely by straining out the food particles
after each frying.
. Crisco gives pastry a new flakiness and digestibility.
Crisco always is of the same freshness and consistency.
'It's uniform quality makes for uniform results.
Crisco gives richness at smaller cost, It brings cake
making back to popularly. Butter bills are reduced and
cakes stay fresh and moist longer.
