The liners President and dorernor,
placed under charter last tail to the
Matson Navigation Company, by the
Federal Shipping Board, have been
commandeered by the United States
Government for war service, and will
be taken off the Honolulu run when
each vessell has completed one more
trip to the islands. That means that
the Governor will be taken over March
1st, and the President on March 8th,
the respective dates upon which they
will reach San Francisco. Both will
be used as troop ships In the Atlantic.
In the place of the two big steamers
will be sent the steamer Sachem, a
vessel of only thousand tons, with pass
senger accommodations for only forty
persons. Two additional freight
steamers will be placed on the route
from the islands to San Francisco. The
Lurline and the Manoa will continue
to carry coastwise passengers, as will
the SOnoma, Sierra and Ventura.
So;ne of these will undoubtedly be
withdrawn later, as it is now stated
that the remainder of the Inter-Island
steamers will also be taken over.
Honolulu shipping men believe that
by the first of March there will be
calling at that port no American own
ed steamers, now engaged In the coast
wise trade either along the Pacific
Coast, between the mainland and Ha
waii, or in the Pacific Coast and South
American trade, of over 2500 tons dead
weight carrying capacity.
As Hawaii is mostly served by coast
wise shipping, it is almost certain that
all the larger steamers now In this
trade will be taken over by the gov
ernment and diverted to the govern
ment use In the Atlantic.
If this is done Honolulu, Kahulul
and Hilo will lose the remainder of the
Matson Navigation Company fleet In
cluding the two Pacific Coast steamers
President and Governor, which were
turned over to this steamship company
after the Matsonia, Wilhelmina and
Maui, the biggest ships of the fleet,'

Is America Saying?
On all sides one hears talk of house
hold economy, and thrift in every
aspect of dally life. It is interesting
to learn just what is being accomplish
ed along these lines, and an article by
Lucy Oppen in the February Good
Housekeeping Is particularly illumi
nating. She says:
'The first factor which would lead
us to expect an increase is the fact
that home gardens, the increased use
of perishable foodstuffs, and the in
creased amount of home canning con
tributed very materially to the kitchen
refuse of 1917. The second factor,
which would lead us to expect an in
crease Instead of a decrease this year
Is the fact that In practically every
butcher shop in the country, the scraps
of fat and bones, which were formerly
thrown under the counter to be sold
to rendering companies, are now
pushed off to the customer. Figures
from the rendering companies which
used to buy these scraps show that
the housewife is now doing her own
'Under these conditions, the report
that the quantity of garbage collected
during the first nine months of 1917
In eighty-one cities showed a decrease
of twelve to fifteen per cent, over the
collections of 1916 is nothing short of
marvelous. Translated, this means
that the housekeeper who used to put
seven, or eight pounds of material into
her garbage pail every week has riot
added a pound or two, as might be ex
pected, on account of her larger use
of perishable foodstuffs and butcher's
scraps. Instead she has actually with
held one pound out of every seven or
eight which use to go into the can,
and has exercised her culinary skill
to put It into the soup kettle or baking-

The Government has taken control
of the manufacture of all by-products
of the sugar business. This includes
the production and distribution of mo
lasses and beet pulp. It will result in
the suspension of the use of waste mo
lassess tor the manufacture of alcohol
other than the denatured product.
Food Conservation Notes
Substitutes for Wheat Flour.
The Flour Regulations of the United
States Food Commission, as they affect
the consumer, rule that In purchasing
wheat flour the consumer must at the
same time buy an equal weight of
other cereals. For instance, when you
buy ten pounds or flour you must at
the same time buy ten pounds of sub
stitutes for flour.
President Wilson In his proclama
tion has named the following substi
tutes: Barley Flour, Corn Flour, Rice
Flour, Corn Starch Flour, Corn Meal,
Hominy, Corn Grits, Rice, Oatmeal,
Rolled Oats, Buckwheat Flour, Potato
Flour, Sweet Potato Flour, Soy Bean
Flour, and Feterlta Flours and Meals.
Graham and whole wheat flours are
wheat products and must be bought as
such, but substitutes of only 30 percent
are necessary. In other words, seven
pounds of graham or whole wheat
flour requires only three pounds of
other cereal substitutes.'
Rye flour and meal are classed as
wheat' products but can be bought
straight without substitutes.
In ordering substitutes for wheat
flour, the local Food AdminiBtrutlon
would like everyone as much as pos
sible to order other substitutes than
rice, such as Corn Meal and Corn
Flour, which encourages the use of
home-grown products, and moreover
these articles are cheaper.
On wheatless days you are allowed
the so-called Quick or Baking-powder
breads, which are made without wheat
flour or merely a trace of wheat flour
is a binder to hold the bread together.
Corn should be widely used. Barley
flour may be used. Rye is no longer

ery, Macaroni, Wheat Breakfast Foods.
