Crops Are Compared
"The crop of 11)17 is the second Isrg
est lu the history of the industry,
fl owing a total of 644,574 short tons,
as aguiust the largest previous crop,

The crop would have been by far the
lurvext on record: bad not the excessive
drought so delayed operations as to

before the close or the atatistifat year
This record breaking drought haa dam
aged the l(ts crop to an estimated
total of from 7.1,000 to 100.000 tons.

1 Consideration of the pllikln and dif

tional Guurd held 'He, attention last
night of .the board of inquiry appoint
ed last week, but its deliberations'
will not be made public until the in
vestigation is completed. J t is said by
an .officer of the gniird 'that following
the conclusion' of the work full pub
licity would be given to the findings.
.The hoard . consists ef Col. W. R.
Blley, First Regiment, N. O. H., presi-
dent; Captain D, U Mackaye, adju-
tant, recorder; , Major J-awrence Juflil
and Major M. . M. Johnson. The board
sat for. three hours last night and will
hold meetings frequently during the
remainder of the. week,,;
Whatever allegations have been
made concerning the-. work of the
guard, leek of discipline at the Kawal
loa Camp, failure to keep to the origi
nal schedule, arid possibly the Filipino
phases, will be probed thoroughly. I)
is understood ' that this is not a
"whitewash "board," 'but one which
will Investigate and give complete at
tention to evfcry detail which has so
far beea made public concerning the
Alleged shortcomings of the guard as a
whole. ; , - - '
Aside f roW ' the board sessions, an
other matter haa been., worrying the
officers and enlisted men of the guard.
Some hate not yet been paid off, al
though the ramp was broken up, as
far as. the First Regiment is concerned,
a week agt last Sunday, The amount
of pay tinges upon the interpretation
of the requirements ' for guard
strength, as well as for length of in
dividual service and number of drills
attended. Originally, the pay wae de
cided on the, basis that whatever the
federal pay might be territorial, pay
weuld.be added sufficient to bring
each man's pay while in, camp up to
at leant two dollars a day. This, ap-
fiarentty, hns been changed, for the
isy haa qeetv very far short of this
amodnt., One of the .ligher ranking
non-commissioned ' offioera, instead of
receiving Hie ' psiy ' eonaidered proper
for Jhnt rknk, received pay at the. rate
of seventy cents per day. , .
. A number of officers are stilt wait-
ng for their pay, and with the pros
pect of receiving a very much lower
amount than they aatlclpated. their
enthusiasm has - undergone a decided
changs. Many Ilawaiiaas who expect
ed their pay about the, first ot the
month have been .. extremely . disap
pointed, as they had banked upon the
guard pay to aettia,mattj'.of their bills.
A. nambet of guardsmen- were paid
off last night at the) armory, among
these being many grnupsj of Filipinos.

Ia support of the plan, it is urged
that, the request to congress for' the

were held by private owners who
would be in ii position to reap huge
benefits from the improvement.

. Honolulu's long deferred federal
building came a step nesrer yesterday
when, at the opening of the new ses
sion of songTess, hn estimate was sub
mitted by the . treasury department
which iricinded an additionsl appropri
ation of L'.1(),000 for a public building
iO this City,. Advices were received by
Tbe Advertiser from its Washington
correspondent, Krnest Walker, to this.
No details as to the proposed appro
priution were received.. The contents
of the cab'e message were Imparted to
Collector of Customa Malcolm Frauk
lin, who is custodian for Hawaii bf
tbe publij buildings and lands for put)
lie' buildings of the- treasury depart
thehtL and he snld that he was not
certain whether the appropriation waa
intended .for the. federal building, or
partly for the proposed war department
Massage la Cleir . , t .-, '
The measagn, however, clearly stated
that .it was the treasury, department
which i submitted the estimate, there
fore It- was the . conclusion: of Av N.
Campbell, , of the WaterhoUse Trust
Company, which handled some matters'
eonneetcd. with the original purchase
of tbe Manuka site, .that the estimate
is entirely for the federal building,,
"1 cannot atate definitely what tie
amount: mentioned ia your cablegram'
refers . to, ' ' said Collector Franklin,
but I suppose, it is lor the jeaerai
building .to be erected oft the Irwin
sits. , I aaw the plana while I waa East
and tbey certainly propose a .beautiful
bailding, which will be a credit, to Ho
ftoluJu. The architects are York and
Sawyer, of New York, and that alone
is sufficient guarantee for, a. uuding
of architectural beauty. I have baa
no advices at all concerning these pro
posed estimates. , .,,,,.-''
. 'The original appropriation, ,tr. 1
remember it correctly, was 1,250,000,
and that still standa to th credit -of
the proposed building.. ' The Jrwin eitf
Is all paid foi The Mahuka aite was
disposed af sometime ago, so I presamel
this is to be applied to the cohstrue
tion expense necessary to carrying out
the- architects' plans." . y .
Mr. Campbell said that -an matters
connected with the sale .of tbe MnhukA
Site, the first one selected for tbe fed
eral building, until public oplnidn
aauaed its withdrawal in favor of the
Irwin -site, facing the Capitol building)
have .been settled . with, the exception
up tor the banding or tae extension
of Bishop Street from King1 to Queen
Street. Following, the transfer of the
federal building site, an agreement
was concluded for the return ot this
amount, pro rata,, to, tbe subscribe re.
Site for War Building'
. In the rear of the federal building
is the newly selected sits; for the wet
department building. It will face
partly on Richard Street.' It will be
a convenient location .for such a
building, being fairly close to the busi
ness section of town, and not far dis
tant from the army's new qtihrtermas
ter warehouses and. allied Offices.
Tho hoie of Honolulu for the, past
ten years that, it might hive a federal
building for the bousing -of the United
Stutos courts, marshala. department.
internal revenue, lighthouse. v bureau
costoms aud other federal offices may
now bn realized, for it appears that
cpngress msy be , in earnest this seseioa
to give tbe city a building that is bad
