Little Portugal at War
Charged with the using of vulgar
and obscono language, Rosa Gonsalves
I'errolra,.of Hanamaulu was haled into
court on Saturday last.
Rose objected to seeing her husband
in tho' company of Mary Freitas, tho
complaining witness, and-when the

shot, proceeded to flro a volley of hair
raising epithets. Mary blushed and
promptly objected, and sworo out a
warrant for Rosas arrest.
In court on Saturday M. S. Hen
rlques appeared for Mary, and A. G.
Kaulukou for Rosa. A galaxy of
witnesses were produced by tho prose
cution and all glibly swore to having
heard bad language used, and all seem
ed to point to Rosa being convicted
of tho charge.
When the prosecuting attorney had
finished, "attorney Kaulukou calmly
asked that tho defendant be dlscharg
cd on tho ground that It had not been
shown by tho prosecution, that tho
bad language used had- been uttered
on or, near a public highway as re
quired by tho statute. Tho Court up
held tills view and ordered Rosa dis

C. Wilcox Cassava Feed
Mr. Wilcox explained his process of
preparing cassava feed as follows:
"Tho roots brought in direct from

through a slicer and chopper which
consists of a centrifugal disc with

cuts tho root Into small chunks no lar
ger than a half dollar, which aro then
put through the drynlg process for
about threo days. The weather must
bo fair to insure eood drying, and as
showers are frcijuent here, they have
experienced difficulty In this process.
The drying and curing in tho sun

has an offensive odor in cassava when
green. Ths odor is entirely, absent
in the cured product. When the chips
arc thoroughly curVid they aro ground
into moal in a regular grinding ma

Mr. Wilcox intends to raiso.olvet

Chamber of Commerce
Messrs. Crawford and Cheatham,
the members of tho Chamber of Com
merce Committee who wont to Hono
lulu to discuss tho proposed form of
cane growing contracts, which tho
plantations and homesteaders wero
asked to enter Into in planting lease
expired lands, wore courteously re
ceived by the Governor nnd Deputy
Attorney General Irwin. They pre
sented their arguments for bettor con
tract from tho homesteaders' stand
point and were told that many of their
points wero well taken.
Owing to tho absonce of Mr. Rich
ard Cooko from tho city, they were
unablo to discuss the matter with tho
Planters' representatives direct, but
wore told that tho Government would
place their arguments before tho
Planters and a reply would bo for
warded. Tho point which scored heavily was
that under tho proposed contract,
with sugar as at present (six cents),
tho grower would get only $48.00 out
of tho $120.00 gross which tho mill
wouhf receive for a ton of sugar.
Tills the Administration admits is not
a fair division.
Tho committco will hold, another
meeting soon, when the Planters' re
ply Is received, and discuss the matter
KAUAI PLANTERS TO BE ASKED
TO GIVE COST DATA
Local representatives of plantations
on Kauai, says the Star-Bulletin, with
bo requested by Deputy Attorney Gen
eral Harry Irwin to furnish him with
cost data regarding the Garden Island
interests, so that he may compare
them with figures submitted by Elmer
Cheatham, the Kapaa homesteader,
who has voiced objection to tho ten
tative agreement botweon plantation
and homesteader for the purchase of
tho lattor's cane.
Mr. Cheatham holds that the. home
steader on Kauai, under the tentative
ngrcement, would be getting too
small a profit and Deputy Attorney
General Irwin is desirous of ascertain
ing whero the dividing line should be.
The final comparison may lead to a
modification of tho contract to allot
greater profits to the Kauai home
steaders. Thus far, says Mr. Irwin, no
other complaints from homesteaders
regarding profits havo boon received
by tills office.

Kauai planters, says tho Advertiser
of Aug. 23rd, aro going to win out in
tholr contention that tho basis between
small planters and plantation mills for
tho purchase of cano on that island
should be nlno tons of cane to a ton of
sugar it appears as a result of con
ferences which Elmer Cheatham and
Frank Crawford, a special committco
of the Kauai Chamber of Commerce,
are holding with the administration
officials and representatives of planta
In tho agreemont proviously reached
between administration officials and
the plantation representatives eight
tons of cano was fixed as the purchaso
basis, but conditions on Kauai are
such that this works to a marked dis
advantage of tho small planter, it is
I This objection, raised by tho Kauai
homesteaders, is admitted as a Just
one by some ol tho Kauai plantation
men, says Assistant Attorney General
Harry Irwin, who Is representing th
Governor at the conference, anothor
of which is to be held today.
Tho assistant attorney general says
ho was told by Charles Rico, a director
of the Makce Sugar Company, but also
an Individual planter, that he believed
tho eight ton baBls was unfair to the
small planter and that nine tons was
tho proper basis for the Island of
Rico agreed that a five-percent de
duction for trash was a fair one except
when the cano was burned. Rice told
tho assistant attorney general ho
would supply him with some spoclflc
figures ho has gathered regarding
trash deductions and other cano sta
tistics. Another reason- tho assistant at
torney general is inclined to think tho
Kauai homesteaders are right in their
contention that cano should bo bought
on a nine-ton basis is that this is tho
amount formerly specified In tho Ma-
keo Plantation Company contracts.
Irwin Confident of Settlement
Attorney Irwin expressed confidence
yesterday afternoon that a satisfactory
agreement was going to bo reached
by the government between the Kauai
homesteaders and tho plantations. Ho
said there was no disposition on tho
part of either the plantation represen
tatives or the planters to make de
mauds that the others could not con
cede, and that probably both would
make some concessions.
In figures mado public yesterday by
Elmer Cheatham he asserted that un
der tho terms of tho present contract
tho homesteader could clear annually
nineteen dollars an acre, with a profit
of sixty dollars for the plantation mill.
The assistant attorney gcnoral has
requested tho. submission of other cost
estimates for tho raising and milling
of a ton of sugar for uso at tho con
ferences, which will bo compared with
those of Cheatham's.
