TUESDAY OCT. 28
TWELVE CENT SUGAR
Sugar is now selling in Honda
lu at retail at 12 cents a pound,
in spite of the ruling of the U. 8
Food Administration which has
set 11 cents as the maximum
price. The wholesalers are charg
ing 10 cents, which means that the
retailers must, or think they must,
have 12 cents. Huber, the district
attorney, says that he has no auth
ority to prevent or reduce this
Locally the Lihue store and
other retailers arc selling at the
same price, which they claim is
a fair one since they have to pay
for an additional freight and
handling. This of course is for re
fined. Island washed sugar is be
ing sold for 8 cents and Island
washed is good enough for anyone.
In view of the fact that refined
costs ?0 per cent more than our
own washed home product, and
in view of the farther fact that the
latter has a flavor and a color
whieh make it a most delicious
sugar, we should all use it in
preference to refined and leave the
12 cent sugar on the hands of
those who think they must have
that price for it.
LEST WE BE CALLED
There seems to have been more
or less misunderstanding in re
gard to the contributions for the
Roosevelt Memorial, especially on
the part of the public schools.
The term "voluntary contribut
ion" has been interpreted by some
people to mean that no effort
should be made to insure such
reasonable contributions as would
make up our quota, on time, or
any other time.
The schools in many cases seem
ed to be all at sea, with no clear
understanding of what to do and
how to do it. and there were con
flicting instructions in regard to
the disposition of money collected.
The consequence is that we are
away behind in our collections,
and are in danger of being rated
The time has, however, been ex
tended to November 1st, in order
that we and some others may get
in by the skin of our teeth.
Voluntary of no voluntary, we
must raise our quota of $3,000,
even if some one has to get out

WHAT WE ARE EATIXO
The findings of Food Inspector
Bairos on his recent tour of in
spection, detailed elsewhere in
this issue, confirm what a great
mauy people have long suspected,
viz : that we are being fed a lot of
punk stuff by stores, restaurants
and other unscrupulous caterers.
And they know it and don't care.
We have no desire to injure any
man's legitimate business, but we
hope that the delinquents will be
blacklisted and boycotted good
and hard until they mend their
Goodness knows we are paying
enough for things to have them
good quality pure, clean, whole
some and sanitary.
It is somewhat of a surprise to
learn that we have nothing on the
isianu wortuy to De calleil ice
cream. And yet, for some time
back, not only here but in Hono
lulu also, the stuff has tasted like
ice-butter, and a poor quality of
butter at that.
We trust that these food in
spections may become a regular
thing, and that we may be kept in
formed as to the quality of the
food we are buying and eating,
and -may know what dealers to
avoid and what ones to patronize.
The resignation of Mr. and Mrj.
Lydgate from the charge of the Lihue
Union and Koloa Union churches
takes effect October 31, so that the
Sunday services were the last in the
At Lihue the serveices took the
form of a brief historical outline of
the organization and development of
the church, and of its more outstand
ing activities during the twenty
three and a half years of the pastor
ate, and included a great deal that
was of general community interest,
and which will be of increasing his
torical interest as time runs on and
the participators pass away. The
address should be preserved in the
archives of the Historical Society.
There was a large and appreciative
audience, and there were many ex
pressions of regret at the sundering
of the relations, coupled with satis
faction that Mr. and Mrs. Lydgate
were to remain in the community.
At Koloa the services took .some
what the same form with the added
feature of the communion service.
The relations at Koloa have been
particularly pleasant and amicable
and the support and backing very
loyal and there were many heartfelt
expressions of regret at the severance
of the tics.
The amount collected by the teach
ers and pupils of Koloa school for the
Roosevelt Memorial Fund was 126.20
(twenty-six dollars twenty cents) the
number of subscribers was 342.
