considered as ultra conservative and

w rt uwri m ui ft position; to prove
them at any time: . .
- If a market were establiahed under
the control of the Territory, and such
country, ten men, preferably Chinese,
eould be hired as clerks for 2.80 a day
or a total of 750 a month. A market
superintendent would reroive l!AO a
month, and rental, depreciation, inter
cut and insurance could be estimated
at about $360 a month, the 'aggregato
expense amounting t,o about $1260 a
month. . -; ,

It la estimated that 23,000 pounds of
fish enter the market daily, 9000 pound
' other than , aku and 13,000 pounds of
1 fni a a
mna. inis wouui mat BoiyHHJ pounds
entering the market each month. At a
monthly expense of $1250 for the pro
posed territorial market, it would cost
one -fifth of a eent a pound for over
head. A eanyass of the Japanese Ash
men In port yesterday afternoon re
sulted in every one of them, whom it
was possible to see, voicing his approv
al of the plan. At ten cents a pound
they would derive more for their time
and labor than they do at the present
time, and, as some stated, their families
would benefit by it when they were oa
. ablo to got out to se.
It is aaid that the Pacific Fiah Com
pany leases tb Walkiki market and sub
lets to stallmen who, In turn, sublease
to others. It is also said they lease
stalls ia the Ewa market, and eub
lcase to stallmen there who, as in thci
case of the Waikiki market, sublease
to whom they wUh. This subleasing i
added to the price of fiah and the pub
lic ultimately pays the bill.
Public Pays B1U
The Pacific Fish Company has seven
employes and its payroll is estimated
at about $460 a month. Yamasbirp,
manager of the market and the Paeiflc
Fish Company, his son and Fukumoto
are said to receive the largest salaries;
Again, it is said that each one of the
vast swarm of Chinese vendor pays
ten' dollars for his stall,' and in sorde
cases where this stall has been sub-
. leased several times, twenty or thirty
dolft&r would be nearer the amounts
paid, all of which ia borne by the publie
when they buy fish over the counter.
' It ia reported that 'the' Hawaiian
Fisheries leases the mnkai market from
an individual and sublet to its stall

ing $100 a month for its stand. Thf

trolled by. E C Winston, leases paee,
it is said, from the Pacific Fish Com
pany and employs three men, J. F.'Ku
rod a manager and bookkeeper, re
ceiving in the neighborhood of $150. a
month, and tb two floornfen about $00
As the situation now : stands, the
three fish onipaniea are receiving in
the neighborhood of $120 a day for
their auctioneering commission, ' This
statement will b supported by the food
inxpeetora who know the amount of fish
entering the market each day. This
com mission i charged for aku a well
as tb other edible fish.
Were this auctioneering commission,

companies, the exorbitant rents now
paid for tall, all of which runs up to
thousand of dollar a month, elimi

ence between the present aggregate cost
of operation auf the $1250 which would

will supply hi cannery. If part of thi
were placed ou tb market it would
greatly tend to lower prices. However,
with the Territory iu control of the
fish industry, this would all be regu
lated to suit the needs of the market.
More Aku for Canneries
Were aku to be sold at a public mar
ket for three and one-quarter cents a
pound and other fish at eleven cents a
pound, ther would be a diminution iu
the consumption of aku, because the
Japanese and Hawaiian who now bay
aku because of its .cheapness would
purchase the choicer varieties which
would then be within the reach of all.
This would give a greater upply to
the canneries, for there would be little
demand for it.
