NEW WHEAT REGULATION.
The fact thnt the wheat restrictions
are to be materially lightnetl In Haw
aii in the very near future does not
mean that we are to have all the
wheat that we can use without sub
stitutes, far from It.
It simply means that we will be re
leived from the DO-50 proposition and
that we will only have have to buy
substitutes In the ratio of four to one
that is 80 per cent wheat flour lind
20 per cent substitutes.
But the quickest way for us to get
back to the 50-50 basis is to use up all
the wheat that we can and wo will' be
back to this standard as quick as a
wink. The Allies have plenty of
wheat now, and we are just harvest
ing a bumper crop, but wo must not
forget for one little minute that we
will have to continue to send wheat
over to our Allies and to some of the
Neutrals who have had a short crop,
or no crop at all this year.
So lets get in and save Just as
though we were still on the 50-50 bas
is even after this now ruling goes in
to effect, and we will find that we will
get along just as well.
HE IS GUILTY.
In a letter which Mr. Child received
from the Food Administration at
Washington in regard to the "Link
AlcCandless Rice Deal" it is extremely
gratifying to learn that Link has been
guilty of profiteering and that he may
be punished for the same.
It is to be hoped that the Supreme
Court, before whom the case will be
tried will take immediate and drastic
action on the case and that it will
inflict the maximum penalty on him.
There is nothing so despisable as a
man, who has an article of food value,
and when there happens to be a short
age on this same article, deliberately
charges more than the article is worth
just because there are persons who
are willing to pay the price.
Hut we do not think that it was for
the few dollars that Mr. McCandlcss
gained in the deal, that he sold this
rice at this price, but that it was
simply that he thought that he could
do it and get away with it, that made
him do this mean little piece of bus
iness. This was shown afterwards by
his actions in the matter. And now
this kind of a man desires to repre
sent us in the Congress of the United
States. No chance. Link, no chance.
THE FOURTH LOAN IS COMING.
Are you ready for the Fourth Lib
erty Loan which is scheduled to be
gin here this month?
Our quota, figuring that the quota
for the Islands, has been nearly doub
led, will be twice as much as last time.
We have a reputation that was
made in the last loan, two "honor
flags" und we must and will live up to
this reputation in this new loan that
The only way that we can do it is
to buy and buy till we haven't any
thing left to buy with, and then to
do a little figuring and buy some
It is an assured fact, from past per
formances, that Kauai will go "way
over the top" in this Fourth Loan, so
the'best thing to do now is to start
saving and figuring.
ALLOTMENT AND ALLOWANCE
There has been a change in the sys
tem of the Ilureau of War Risk In
surance of the Treasury in the matter
of allotment and allowance checks.
This results in some of the checks sent
out by (he bureau being for smaller
sums than heretofore, but the amounts
omitted from the checks sent out by
the bureau will be included in checks
sent out from other sources.
The new system will simplify the
work of the bureau and is expected to
accelerate the payment of allotments
Prior to July last the War Risk In
surance Bureau took Hie compulsory
allotment or $15 a month and what
ever additional sum the enlisted man
chose to allot to his family, and the
whole amount, together with the Gov
ernment allowance for dependents was
included in one check and sent out by
the bureau. Iieglnning with the July
pay the bureau will collect and send
out only the complsory allotment of
$15 a month and the Government fam
The excess allot merits over the com
pulsory $15 allotment and the allot
ments to persons not entitled by law
to allowances will not be handled by
the Ilureau of War Risk Insurance.
but by the War or Navy Department
and Marine Corps, or Coast Guard, ac
cording to the branch of service to
which the enlisted man belongs.
VOICE OF THE PEOPLE
To the Interest of the Public of Kauai:
In reading the Garden Island Paper
of Aug. 27th, 1918, 1 saw that Mr.
Rice had a conference with the Ass't
Attorney General, Harry Irwin in re
gard to the Homesteaders Cane Con
tracts and agreed that a Flvo-Per-cent
deduction for trash was a fair
one except, when the cane was burn
ed. Mr. Rice also told the Ass't At
torney General that he would supply
him with some specific figures that he
has gathered regarding trash deduc
tions and other statistics.
The Homesteaders of Kapaa have
been in business with Makeo Sugar
Co. for the last eight years and the
said Makee Sugar Company has been
in the custom of deducting only 2
per cent for trash cane and 1 per cent
for burnt cane, all of this has been
proven and tested by the officials of
Makee Sugar Co. which I believe have
the best system of the County of
Mr. Rice, I believe is also in busin
ess with cane at Lihuo but it he has
the habit of loading more trash than
cane on the cars the Lihue Planta
tion Co. should charge Mr. Rice with
10 per cent trash and not 5 per cent
as he suggested for the poor home
steaders of Kauai.
A man of such good character and
business should always give a square
deal to the public and not try to kill
the small farmers known as home
steaders. This Centlemen Is seeking for the
nomination of Senator of Kauai and if
he is trying to get such little things
like this to kill the poor homesteaders
what will he do for us it he gets el
Now is the time to get down to
business and vote for Candidates that
will make some good to the Home
steaders and not for any other that
will harm the poor.

SOMEWHERE IN FRANCE,
June 29th, 1918.
You will have to excuse me for not
thanking yeu before this, for the
Trench Kit I received through "Jud
ges" from you. But it is better late
than never, so I am taking this oppor
tunity of thanking you.
When I received the kit we were
getting rady to go into the trenches
and by mistake I packed your address
In my barrack bag, and I have just
unearthed it, so I will do my best to
tell you what has happened since the
last time I saw your address.
We had been training over here for
about four months with the French
before we started in, but it is hard
training with men who you can't un
derstand or talk to. Well we lived
through it and tried to make old Mass
achusetts (the state my regiment hails
from) proud of us.
We went into one sector for about
a month and a half. This front was
tame, but has seen some hard fighting
since we were with the French still
in training. We lived in largo caves,
electric lighted and holding a couple
of thousand men. We were perfectly
safe here, so we thought war was a
joke, and the only kick we had was
against the million:? of rata, some as
large as cats, that would eat all of the
rations that the Government could is
sue, and climb all over you when you
were trying to get a wink of sleep.
Well we stood this for a while, then
we were ordered back for a re:;t.
We were to have a month or two,
of rest, but things started, so wo had
only two days of rest when our divis
ion was ordered to the front, there
to start something so as to relieve the
pressure that IJosche was using in
this drive, well we did but it cost a
The first place we were in, in this
sector was different than the last. Wo
lived in small dugouts with about a
foot of water on the floor, with no
light only at the door, and tho rats
still with us.
The first few days wero great, it
was kind of warm, and we could sit
out in front of our dugouts and sun
ourselves, but one night the Dosche
thought they would like to look our
barbed wire over, well some of them
did. but never got back to tell what
it looked like.
They got kind of sore and thought
that we needed a licking, so they sent
for what is known as the "Storm
Struppers" or storming troops. They
came down and were going to lake our
