The Second Liberty Loan
It is contemplated that the Second Liberty Ixan campaign will
clone on the 1st of NovetnU'r, next, and that the active campaign will
begin not later than OcIoIht 1st. .
The details of the loan cannot be given out until the Congress has
acted uion the Kind bill now pending. As soon as the new law has
been passed announcement of the details of the loan will lx? made.
Obviously no wibseriptums will be received or can be received to the
new loan until the Congress has acted upon the pending measure
and Announcement of the issue made.
I earnestly hope that nil Liberty Loan committees already existing
will pcTTed their organizations immediately and get themselves in
readiness for the next Liberty Ian campaign, and that new organiza-
tions will le effected wherever iossible throughout the country for
furthering this great service to the Nation.
As in tlie previous loan, the general direction of the campaign in
each Federal Reserve District will be under the supervision of the
Federal Reserve Rank of that District as the fiscal agent of the Govern
ment, and all LiUrty Loan committees are urged to get in touch
with the Federal Reserve Rank of their District and actively engage
in the preliminary work of preparing for the next campaign. Wil
liam G. MdAdoo, Secretary of the Treasury.

A few weeks ago a cedar tree ,
that has been lying prostrate in
the forests of Washington for ct
least fourteen centuries was sawed
into perfectly sound shingles. The I
time that has elapsed since it fell
was shown by a tree that had grown
uu astride the fallen cedar and that
had 1380 annual rings. That is
one of the longest known periods
in which timber exposed to the
weather has remained free from
decav; but there are records ol
woo'd that, having been kept dry
or continuously covered with water
or ice, has lasted even longer than
that. Youths Companion.
The Status Of The Enemy Stockholder
The Trading with the Enemy Rill which is now under discussion in
Congress raises questions which will lx of vital interest to many alien
enemv stockholders of enterprises in these Islands.
According to the provisions of this bill Alien Enemy stockholders
in American corporations will not Ikj entitled to receive their income
from these corporations during the continuance of the war. This in
come instead will pass into the hands of a Federal Alien Property
Custodian, under the Secretary of the Treasury, who will administer the
same during the continuance of the war, and make proper accounting at
the close of it. This will mean doubtless that this income will bo in
vested in Liberty Ixian Eonds and other like securities, and wMl thus
assist the Federal Government in the conduct of the war.
The proposed law provides that the names of these Alien Enemy
stockholders shall be stricken from the list. This would mean, ap
parently that such stockholders will not lc entitled to vote in stock
holders meetings; and may mean that the Alien Property custodian
may represent such stockholder in meetings of the corporation.
All this will have a verv real interest and application in these Islands
in the case of such German controlled corporations as Hackfield and Co,
and the various corporations controlled by them. Jt would look as
though, for the time being the Federal Government might become the
largest factor in the control of them.

For Frying" -For Shortening'
For Cake Making
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 vege
table, The same Crisco can be used to fry fish, onions,
doughnuts, etc., merely by straining out the food
particles after each trving.
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'popularity. Butter bills are reduced and
cakes stay fresh and moist longer.
Nothing To Be Proud Of
In Hawaii, according to the figures given in his convention address
yesterday by George II. Carter, only sixty individuals and corporations
have obligated themselves to contribute regulaily to the Red Cross.
Think of that the next time you see a crowd waving Hags and cheering
a resolution of loyalty 1
There are five times sixty persons blowing money on an average
Saturday night at lieinie s.
It is a mighty poor Sunday when there are not sixty around-thc-is
land pleasure cars calling at Ilaleiwa.
A Country Club hop brings out always from a hundred and fifty to
three hundred well-dressed, money-spemling Honolulans.
Of course, plenty of people are contributing to war funds in addi
tion to the Red Cross and giving time and energy to various good work,
but it is likewise a certainty that prominent among these workers and
contributors will be found the same sixty persons and firms who figure
on the Red Cross pledge list.
A census of the ones supporting the hospitals, the endowed schools,
the various charity homes, the instiutions, the Y. M. C. A. and Y. W.
C. A., the Salvation Army in all its branches, and every other big com
munity work will include practically all the one on the Red Cross list,
and very few others.
Isn't it about time for some of the "good fellows," the "spends-like-a-prince"
class, the joyriders and the "sports" to join the regular
Red Cross contributors? We knew of many men who profess to scorn
the "tight wads" who spent a good many hours a month decrying the
"grasping missionaries" and who are fond of jingling their money and
"setting them up for the crowd." who as yet have contributed not a
nickel to any war cause, except when held up on the street on a tag day.
It is time for these to get down on the Red Cross and the War Orphan
Don't leave all the giving to the same three score people and firms
who are constantly giving. One does not have to be a millionarie tu help
and a pledge of a dollar a month will be cordially received. Cut out one
round of cocktails, one joyride, one new golf stick, one pair of silk
stockings, and get the giving habit. Advertiser

it seems that Porto Rico has discovered, even as we have, that New
England Text Books with oak trees, and robins, and runcible spoons are
not just suited to the requirements and capacities of the little Porto Ric
ans; so they are going to get up their own books that will suit their own
If a single small island like Porto Rico, an island just cutting its
eye tooth, in matters of education, has the intelligence and initiative to
do that, surely we here in Hawaii might at any rate consider similar
It might be interesting for us to' keep in touch with their efforts in
this line and see what they turn out. It might al be well for us to
familiarize ourselves with the efforts that have been made in the Philip
pines, where we understand, they have felt the same need and have tak
en measures to meet it.
Excess Profits Tax: Finally Fixed
After much discussion Congress has finally passed the bill which
fixes the excess profits tax as follows:
The basis will be the normal average net profits of the years 1911,
1912. and 19l;5, The excess of present profits above this average will
be taxed af follows:
12 per cent on the first 15 per tent profits.
Hi per cent on the next 10 per cent profits to 25 per cent.
20 per cent on the next 25 per cent profits to 50 per cent.
25 per cent on the next 25 per cent profits to 75 per cent.
30 per cent on the next 25 per ct nt profits to 100 per cent.
And from this running up by an increasing sliding wale to (iO per
cent on everything from 300 per cent up.
This tax is expected to yield a revenue of over a billion dollars.
