The only salvation for the Ililo
banana growers is to organize.
This is being demonstrated by every
shipment of Ililo fruit to the Coast.
While a shipper may secure better
returns on one occasion, the rule is
that most consignments of fruit to
San Francisco commission men
have been at a loss to the shippers.
The Ililo fruit men are going
through the same experience that
confronted the fruit growers of
Southern California ten years ago.
The latter saw the folly of shipping
fruit on consignment and tried sell
ing f. o. b. San Francisco. In both
cases, the commission men robbed
the grower by making unjust claims
for rebates on the alleged delivery
of damaged fruit, so that as a final
resort the growers organized them
selves into numerous stock com
panies, having a given area of juris
diction. By joining forces, they
were able to meet the trust of com
mission men on common ground at
a nominal cost to themselves and
incalculable benefit in returns. The
various growers' associations subse
quently organized a joint Fruit Ex
change, which acts for the indi
vidual growers in the handling and
marketing of fruit. The plan is
entirely cooperative in the division
of expense and the sharing of
profits. The success of the South
ern California Fruit Exchange has
proved its usefulness and, since its
organization, the fmit growers of
the lower half of the State have
been recognized as equals by the
commission men in the disposition
of their fruit. The organization of
a similar association ought not to
be a difficult task in Hilo and vicin
ity, especially when the experience
of nearly every individual grower
to market his own fruit has been a
A MEASURE OF PRAISE.
No higher compliment could be
paid to Hilo's public spirit and
sense of civic duty, thau the volun
tary words of praise from Dr. L. E.
Cofer, of the United States Marine
Hospital Service and President Iy.
E. Pinkham of the Board of Health.
These gentlemen know what it is to
face conditions and the dangers
that beset a community from lack
of public interest. Both were sur
prised with the improvements made
in the sanitation of the city and
vicinity, and were unstinted in their
approval of the work being carried
on by the health authorities through
the assistance of the Shippers'
Wharf Committee. The systematic
oiling of the streets of Hilo was a'
matter which especially commended
itself to their attention, and which as
a preventative measure against the
spread of epidemics and disease,
they praised most highly. The
crusade against the obnoxious mos
quito was another important matter
now being undertaken with the aid
of the Shippers' Wharf Committee.
This is a matter, however, which
cannot be carried on spasmodically
or irregularly, but requires constant
attention and the cooperation of the
public to make the work effective.
No let up or cessation of the cam
paign should be permitted until the
ponds, marshes and other breeding
places of the mosquito arc wiped
out, and with them, the pest itself.
Scientific sanitary investiga
tion has proved that infections of
the human body are spread through
the medium of insects, such as flies,
fleas and mosquitos. To destroy
these disease carriers it is necessary
to destroy their breeding places.
Mosquitos breed in marshes,
.swamps, old rain barrels, eaves
troughs and wherever there is stag
nant water impregnated with de
caying organic matter. Flies breed
in stables and barnyards, wherever
there is a mass of filth, and by
keeping these places clean of all
decayed organic matter, the dan
gers of infection are greatly minimized.

The Tkiiiunk, reporter called on L. It.
I'inkhnni, President of the Territorial
Hoard of Health, to inquire concerning
the object of the visit of Dr. L. K. Cofer
of the U. S. Marine Hospital Service and
himself to Hilo.
Mr. Pinkham remarked: "We came
to Hilo on our annual inspection trip,
and to look over the sanitary condition
of Hilo and vicinity. We have been very
much gratified at the good condition in
which we have found the town generally
and in detail. Waiakea nlong the river
was found, with hardly an exception,
provided with sanitary conveniences and
drainage and to he cleanly. The town is
in very good shape throughout. The
oiling of your streets is making a great
improvement. The points that dp not
impress us favorably arc such as take
time to bring into condition. As usual
the swamps between town and Waiakea
arc a source of danger. Clticns should
use every effort by the combination of
public and private iutercsts to have a
suitable water course laid through the
swamp and the balance of the land filled
in. There is an abundance of filling on
the ncarlly beach.

"Some of your present buildings, and
undoubtedly those to be built would be
made far more creditable, permanent and
reliable for keeping the alignment of
sanitary fixtures and plumbing if more
attention was paid to clear and high air
space under the buildings, and to more
immovable and sure foundations and par

"We most sincerely thank these gentle

Your reporter further inquired as to
what appeared to Mr. Pinkhnm to be the
most vital topic of interest to the Inlands.
He replied, "The Labor problem and the
protection of the citizens of the Territory

a copy of "The Enterprise Courier"
