The Coming Territorial Fair
Honolulu, March 11 Complete pre
liminary Information concerning prizes
that will be given and rules that will
govern In the agricultural show at the
territorial fair, June 10 to 15, has
been printed In pamphlet form and is
ready for free distribution throughout
All persons Interested In this divis
ion of the fair may obtain copies by
applying to the fair commissioners on
their respective Islands, to the rep
resentatives of the territorial food
commission, or by sending direct to
C. R. Willard, secretary, P. O. Box
The size of the printed pamphlet
20 pages indicates the importance
the agricultural show will assume. In
fact, the committee has asked for an
amount of floor space equal that re
quired by any two other departments
of the fair. Everything edible grown
In Hawaii for man or beast is to be
shown here, in Its very best specimens.
Of the more common foods there will
be a vast number of varieties. Bana
nas for Instance, will be represented
by at least twenty different kinds.
For every one of such varieties,
prizes will be awarded in the form of
ribbons, where specimens are up to
the high standard which the judges
think they should maintain.
All formers, gardeners and growers
of foodstuffs of any kind are invited
to enter the competitions. No fee
will be charged for exhibits, but own
ers are asked to donate them to the
Red Cross. On the final day of the
fair all agricultural displaya, except
where owners specify otherwise, will
be sold at public auction and the pro
ceeds donated to the Red Cro39.
Owners may dispose of exhibits at
private sale, but exhibits sold thus
must be marked plainly with the upset
prices, and If sales are made, five per
cent will be deducted by the fair for
the use of the display space as ad
vertising and marketing medium.
This five percent will go into the fair
fund, which belongs to the territorial
Not least among the spectacular
features of the poultry show at the
territorial fair will be an exhibit of
game cocks, shown largely by Japan
ese and Filipino fanciers who in form
er years entertained sport-loving
crowds and won their own livelihood
by the prowess of their feathered
fighters in the game pit.
Of course the law no longer permits
Cock fighting but there tre still many
small flocks of these warrior birds in
different parts of the Islands, cherish
ed by their owners for the fame of
past deeds of the valor of their an
cestors. All these fanciers are invit
ed to exhibit their finest and noblest
cock-fighting strains at the forthcom
ing show. There will be no oppor
tunity to win game-pit championships
there, but judges who know well the
championship marks of the breed will
be selected to pick the finest and
award premiums on points.
It, is probable no entrance fee will
be charged for any exhibit in the poul
try show. All fanciers of birds are
invited to enter, but the committee
announces that only pure-bred strains
will be admitted.
The general exhibition will be di
vided into five classes: Mediterranean,
American, English, game and bantam.
Included under certain of these will
come capons, and in all classes im
ported fowls are to be distinguished
from Biland-bred. Besides the gen
enal classes a number of special
awards will be made, and premiums
given in the exxhibitlon of pigeons,
ducks, geese, turkeys and rabbits.
Blue ribbons will go the heaviest
Tom turkey, heaviest buck and doe
rabbit, heaviest male and female
ducks and geese. In all displays the
exhibit must be the bona fide property
of the exhibitor.
Prizes are to be awarded for the
finest colection of eggs, and for the
best poultry collection of an individ
ual owner a silver cup may be given
as a special prize.
AH owners interested in tfie forth
coming show should notify C. R. Wil
lard, secretary,. P. O. Box 253, Hono

sent them as plans develope for the

ing food conservation in the hotels,
restaurants, and dining cars of Hawaii,
