GLORIOUSLY rallying to tho country'! call, Hawaii put the eapsheaf on
her second' Liberty Lotto campaign yesterday at noon with a total bond
subscription of more than eight million dollars, Of this aura nearly one
fifth was taken by the officers and inert of 'the -United States army lu Hawaii,
who iu numbers are less than one sixteenth of the population1. '
SPLENDID CAMPAIGN THROUGHOUT
All thone who have taken, part in the campaign may now look back over it
with' the satisfaction of work well done. There have been handicap., but they
have been overcome or unheeded by the workers, who have 'orged ahead with
Unremitting enthusiasm. Credit is due to each an it every one who has hud any
part in the campaign, from the executive committee down to the. Boy Scouts and
oilice boys who ran the multitudinous errands about town. -
Few indeed, if any, will be the States ou the mainland which will be able
to point to an over-subscription as great as that made by Hawaii. The original
figure net for Hawaii's quota by the executive committee Was $3,000,000. When
this sum was reached early In the'second week they set $5,000,000 as the goal to
be rencheL That amount came during the first days of the last week, and each
day since has piled up a steady growth, which sent 'the final figure for the Terri
tory at almost six and three-quarters millions.
The per capita subscription for every civilian resident of Hawaii is $26.24.
That amounts to a little over half a bond apieco for every man, woman, aud
child
in the Territory outsiue or ma
Armv and Navy. For the actual sub-
sc.ribers the per' cftdta 'auto'" works-out
at $831)8.47. ThisArure I rather mis
leading, as a largelproportlon Of the
sum was corporation ' purchases ia
figures la excess of $100,000. The aver
age value of the bond taken- by in
dividual subscriptions would work out
to a few hundreds apiece. By far the
larger number of subscribers took $50
or $100. bonds.
AQ Islands Represented

this ' column - invTudea Oahu, Kauai,
Maul and Hawaii. The -subscriptions
from the outside islands were small

all the plantations and 'island corpora
tions took their beud ! through the
Honolulu banks. Their stockholders
and bondholders are represented
throughout the Territory, and -each on
of those stockholder' or bondholder
has a share ia the subscription made
by his company or plantation.' Oahu

The largest single subscription yes
terday was that of the Hugar Factor's
Company! which took out -a block of
bouds of the value of $5(0,000 as anon
as the bauks were ' opened. v The last
subscriber was H. O. Da vies, one of the
men now in (raining sf the reserve

Composite Campaign
'"''"ft- was a .composite campaign,"
said 1,, Tenney l'eck, chairman of the
executive committee yesterday, aa he
drew a long breath after sending in the
last figures to A. F. Judd at noon.
"Everybody took'' part, and everyone 'a
efforts ' counted in the success of the
whole. Hardly any firm, bank, or In
dividual can be singled out for special
praise, for everyone did his level best,
and the results were due to the efforts
of. each any every one. The army, per
haps, Is more deserving of special men
tion than any other body. They have
done 'wonders and have shown the mar
velous advantage of organization and
competition in a campaign of this
sort,"
The executive committee will hold a
final meeting Monday morning at nine
o'clock. The committeemen will sum
marise the activities and results of the
campaign arid pas formal resolutions
of' thank to various individuals, com
mittees and organizations whose work
in the campaign has been instrumental
in its success. Among the individuals
sure to be mentioned is Charles R.
Fraxier, who has hail much to do with
the excellent publicity work in putting
the loaa before the public.

INTEREST CHAMBER
IN SEATTLE SERVICE
Believing that the transportation
business of the country will be in need
of complete readjustment at the close
of the war, George MvClellan, an old
time resident of Hawaii' and bow of
Heat tie, told tho members of the cham
ber of commerce Friday afternoon that
he had been asked by tho Heattle
Chamber of Commerce to serve aa a
special representative during his stay
here, and take up the question of a pos
sible Puget Hound-Hawaii service with
the business men of the Territory.
Although ho thought nothing definite
roiild- be accomplished until after the
close of the war, he left the time apro
pos to agitate the establishment of such
a service. He told the chamber mem
bers that the trade of the Islands was
far. too important to tie it up with any
one port.
He cited figures in substantiation of
his claims that the port of Seattle had
had a much larger volume of business
than Han' Francisco, : both rom the
standpoint of tonnage and wealth dur
ing the last fiscal year. Not only did
he claim every 'advantage for Seattle
that Han Francisco has, but said that
the great Northwest was the mom logi
cal port for Hawaii to deal With, ia
considering the establishment of a sec
ond line, by reason ef its railroad fa
cilities, it being tho terminal for five
transcontinental roads. He said Heat
tle sought to take nothing' from Kan.
Francisco but to add service for Ha
waii. '' - - . ill .J ' K ' ,
Mr. McClellan said he would take
the. matter ap with the commerce body
at a later date, o would not attempt
at that time to discuss the many phases
of the question.' He' thought that up'
on proper Investigation by all interest
ed in better' transportation facilities
for Hawaii,' the -feasibility of commun
ication with Seattle would be readily
seea. ' -..'. $ 1 ,-. .

HOW THE DRAFT

BEflOUCTED
Fateful Lottery On Thursday So
' " Arranged That It Will Be :
' ' 'Absolutely Fair
NUMBER WANTED FOR
' 1 .SERVICE HOT SET YET
Every Registered .Man In Islands
To Be Drawn and Uncertain -'
ty Done Away With
Official word of the number of men
the Islands are expected to furnish for
the National Army, when the second
Chll comes in December or January, ha
not yet been received. ; It is taken for
granted that the notification will come
before Thursday, the. day set for the
draft drawing, when the twenty-nine
thousand and more men registered will
know just where they get off.
It is expected by Major Green that
the plan now being advocated for the
second drawing on the mainland will
be' the plaa here and that Hawaii's
first drawing will differ from the first
drawlng-on the mainland. Under this
new plan, which was the one desired
originally by Provost Marshal Crowder
the. number, of 'every registered man
will be drawn and every registered man
will know r definitely . just where he
stands. .,- .
Third and Last Number
After the draft oVThursdiiv, every
registered man 'of Hawaii will receive
his new number, which will be the third
since he entered the registration booth.
There he got a number which was writ
ten on his registration card. Recently
ne was given a second number, the reg
istratton cards having been all shufflel
and renumbered. This second number
is his "serial number.' Now, in the.
arawing, ae wtli get nis a raft number,
and that's the number that counts.'
If his draft number j below 1500 he
will know that he ha a good chane
indeed of being among the first called
to the Colore. If it should be a num
ber above 5000, he may; rest assured
that he will not be called unless the
national safety becomes seriously im
perilled. , '.' r
Only Look Complicated
' The method, for the drawing appears
complicated but is, in reality, very
simple. There are six registration dis
tricts and in each there Is some one
with Serial Number One. This makes
six men in Hawaii with Herial Number
One, six with erial Number Two and
so on up to the highest 'number on
Kanni, where the registration is. the
smallest. There are five each of each
number higher until the Maui registra-
tion Is exhausted. The higher numbers
still are held by four, then three, then
two, nntil the. very last and highest
numbers are reached, held onlv bv a
few in' the Fourth District, Oabu. Thus
the smaller numbers drawn will each
call out six men, one from each district
with that number. The higher number
will call from five down to one. '
Numbers from one to 7000 have been
written each on "a scrap of paper"
and each tucked away in a gelatine
capsule. These capsules are to-be
placed in a glass container and thor
oughly stirred up. On Thursday they
wiu oe arawn out, one by one.
The Fateful Lottery
The -first sapsule drawn will deter
mine who is to have . Number One is
the list of those to be called to the
Colors from each of the six districts.
The first capsule may. contain, the
slip on which No. 540 is written, for
cxamplo. ' Then the one in each district
who has Hcriul Number 545 becomes
Number One in hi district, -'And so
on, until the entire 7000 capsules, have
been drawn urn) each registered man
has his new und final draft number!
When the cull to the Colore eomes it
will bo for all men from Number One
to whatever other number be set, and
from each district the registered men
with these nu in hers will respond. Those
who claim exemption will be heard and
their cases punseil on. Then will come
the physicul examinations, until all
ineligible hate been weeded out or ex
empted und the tin exempted, physic
ally fit left to o into training as Na
tional Army men. r
Later, if more men are needed, an
other batch of numbers, on from those
called in the first quota, will bo sum
moned, ami so on. ,
Drawing In Public
The eereniouy next Thursday morn
ing will be open to the public, aud the
first number will be-drawn at niue
o'clock. '
..The draft office yesterday received
approval of the names of four men for
exemption board service as' 'follows:

Recent Reports Show That Gar
""den Isle 'Roads ' Are Splen-"
' didly HJaintained ''
Realizing that gooil roads are the
most valuable asset' of a ' community,
and especially to a country that has an
array of sc-euic points to otter the tour
ist, the island of Kauai stande fore
most In the securing of good roads and
their maintenance. .
From Waimea to Nawiliwili the mo
torist travels over a stretch of drive
way w(tich 4s simiUr to a boulevard.
One feature of the drive which is al
ways a joy to the motorist ta the pleas
ant garding of hills. Oa the whole run
between the two named points there la
not a climb that cannot be made easily
with the ordinary motor ear iu high
gear. ' ' - ' .
The steepest of the climbs is the Wai
mea hill, which is met eomiug from Li
hue at '23.5 miles. Traveling at ordi
nary epecd and with n 'rnnninir start
this hill can be negotiated easily on the
btgo gear, thus making the wholo trip
without shifting iroar. '
Credit Due Moragn
Joseph H; Moragne, countv enirineer.
is the man of the hour on Kauai, and
under his pernonal supervision the many
road improvements have 'been made. At
the present time Mr. Morague ea busy
completing a tine pieoe of road con
struction from Kealia, teu miles to
wards Hanaiei, With this stretch com
plcted, Kauai will be able to boast of
roads iu perfect condition to all points
of interest en the main, highwayav
The trip up the aide of Olekele can
von, considering that -the read is sub
ject to the ravage of tain torrents and
Ntreama sweeping down' the" 'mountain
sides is a revelation;--vs-"
Although the road along the canyon
is very narrow and 'just sufficiently
wide enough for one machine to navi
gate, there is absolutely bo danger, to
either ear or driver if the niotorist
watches the road vjueely and take ao
chances. : ... . ., x-,.'.
At Waimea the tourist will find
guides who are .thoroughly familiar
with every mile of the road aud If the
weather conditions will' not permit the
driving of an automobile over the
whole stretch of the.road arrangements
ran be made t procure horse, for the
trip farther up the' canyon. . , .
Puu Ka Pole Boad Is Good
The road to Puu Ka Pale, which bor
ders the fauious Waimea cauyou, can
be safely navigated by motor car when
weather rondltiona permit. - This 1 also
a plantation, road which branches off
the main highway at three and four
fifths mile from Waimoa toward Ke
kahu. This is a steady up-grade climb
which will have to be navigated In in
termediate gear iu many places.
Although rough Inkpots, it must be
remembered that this is also' a road
that the county does not keen up and
is searltied ud maintained by thu
plantation. The end of the route to
thu base of Puu Ka I'ele Is thirteen and
four fifths miles. This road' when iu
Kood eomlition is a beautiful drive.
Oue feature of the maintenance of
Kauai 's roads is that very little heavy
tratlie uses the roads. - Plantation rail
roads have connectioua with practically
every landing of importance, and ail
heavy freight is transported by tho
railioads.'

TARO SEEDS
Method Is Worked Out By Local
Man 'Who Makes the Improve
ment of the Kalo His Hobby
(By OEKRIT P. WILDER) V ,
The early Hawaiiana recognized .,
some 250 varieties of the kalo (arum :
esculeotum) more commonly known a '
taro. Of this number, some were in-
digenoos, while others were Introdneed
from the various: island of Polynesia,-.
although nowhere does it attain it .
perfection found here, where it he al
ways been the chief article of the
native -diet. The- Hawaiian posses
great skill in the cultivation of the
kalo: a skill which in fact, has never
been excelled, for it Is ntill cultivated
in the enclent manner.
The halo ha always beeM propnoated
by slanting the tops of the corma, tall-..
ed the hulis. These are planted wben '.
?uite green or fresh as they are cut
rom the tuber, and quickly strike
root, -either in the soft mud of .the ',
tare patch, or in the dry earth In lo
calities where there ia sufficient mois-
tere. ',
The question has often occurred to -
me as to jnst ia what manner the many
varieties of the kalo were produced, aa,
so far aa. I have been able to ascer
tain they seem Incapable ef self polle- -nation
- i ' r . . ;
Tare) Collected
For. a number of years I have made
eloee study of the kalo and have en- '
deavored to collect and preserve the
different varieties as they ocenr on the
various Islands of our group. It baa
been nn interesting work, in which . I ''
have bees greatly assisted by the many
eld-time. Hawaiians whom I have -met
in (he--out-of-the-way eountry districts.
1 have now a valuable eoliectioa of
some sixty varieties, together with
eonsidenable data in regard ' to their
aative-names -and habits.-.-- ,',
"Fronveloae observation of these spec
imens in- my collection, I became eon-
vlneed that by means of artificial cross- '
pollenation, seedling taroa could be
raieed: aud by so doing, doubtless elim
inate, ia a measure, the diseaeee which
areaow constantly perpetuated through
tbe planting of- iafected bulis. ftly x
periment alosg- this line have -proven
eueoescfal, aad at thia time of writing,
I- have about 100 seedling kalo plants .
whch I have produced by means of
arviflcial erose-pellenation. . , ' r

Kalo matures all the way from 8 to

I hope to produee some strong, vigor
ous plants, that will' prove to be re
sistant to the kalo rot' diseases ' nhd
also to help to iaoreas' the production
of one of ou most palatable and uour-'
