Were Russia still a factor in the great war the
Teutons would never have been able to draw
from Mother fronts the forces that were necessary
for the tremendous offensives that were launched
against, the British about Cambrai on the Western

' f Press despatches from the Italian fronts' agree
in characterizing the assaults in that , war; theater
. as the greatest effort which the Central Towers
have, exerted during any period of the war. Heavi
ly outnumbering the Allies' and with a. far greater
gun power the Austro-Germans sought to exert
those efforts to the utmost. : In sheer desperation
the Italians, at last reinforced by 'British and
French troops and guns, held their -ground and
hurled back the onrushing, grey "clad hordes'. :

Freight Rates and Retail
ZPrices '. ' ' ' "'

long list of commodities and articles. " ' '
'Let the consumer remember that the added
freight cost oivten pounds of any goods, where
the rate has been increased five dollars, is only
two and a half cent on a single pound is only one

for the agitation for higher plantation wages was
conducted through the press though evidently
started ky tctail merchants w ho wanted "business
as usual" in war times. In those editorials a num
ber of specious arguments arc advanced and some
of the arguments show a lack of full understand
made that Hawaiian sugar prices
York prices arc made the basis,
this is that prices from now on are
one price on the Atlantic; the Paci
fic and at Gulf ports. The sugar commissions' fix
one price for all.
So far as jdirect wages go the laborer will have
no reduction,"! . Those who participate in the bo
nuses will receive, as this year, their regular wage
with one-third of that amount added. The reduc
tion for them comes only in the final payment at
the end of the year. They would have as. much
reason to protest because the price of sugar had
been five cents a pound during the coming year
as they have to object to the raising of the mini
mum, to meet added costs. . V
One of the main points that has been raised by
the Japanese association and newspapers has been
that those who do not work the required number
of days do not participate in the bonus system.
No cut in their wages is made and they still have
the same opportunity, by working twenty. djys a
month, to secure an increase of a third in'tncir
It is to be expected that there will be disap

satisfaction that the wage and bonus received each
month, the money on which the laborer and his
family live, has not been decreased. . ..
The usual fairness of the Japanese must be look

TOBACCO MEN HAD
TO RAISE PRICES
Such Is Statement of Julius Un
Oer, Who Says Several Reasons
Made Increase Necessary
For several yeara the tobacco man"
ufacturera have been absorbing the in
creased cost of ' production without
raising tha prices of their produrtsbut
tbe entry of the United Statea into the
war with increased taxes, or war taxes
above' the' former taxes, the rapid in
crease in costs for material And labor,
was one ot tne causes for the raise in
man prices to consumers for rigara
and cigarettes' said Julius Ungcr,
nannger or itunsi m VO, yesterday.
"Take our own great manufacture
concern, for instance. We have ha
strikes and labor troubles, as other
concerns in and out of the eisar trade
nave naa. these nave caused an in
crease in tbe cost of production. Bigirer
wagea have had to be paid, and yet the
old standardized prices were retained,
and were retained as-long as possible.
. "Even when the cost of production
ana me price or retailers began to get
perilously clone, our firm decided to re
tain the rate, for the five-cent cigar,
aad prepared an advertisement But
there we ran .up against other' manufac
turers who found it absolutely neces
sary to raise. Our ad was not run as
an- ad but severely commented on in
the' trade journals. That cigar ' was
raised to six cents, and no more profit
ia obtained from it than before, for the
costa have had plus items added, con
sisting rf Increased taxation aud cost
of labor. ' '.'
'Here's another feature. Tbe to
bacco crops of Cuba are not being
maintained. Vast acreages are being
developed into sugar caue plautations,
for sugar grows easilv in Cuba and the
profits are greater. That once wonder
ful source of supply is becoming leas
and less a factor. Only the other day
two buyers for one of the biggest man
ufactories of cigars passed through Ho
nolulu on their way to Manila to get
hold of tobacco. Imagine going eight
thousand miles to secure crops, when
in former times they had to go but a
few hundred miles.
"Of course, when cougress an
nounced . its war tax .bill and every
vlnsa of business began to be anxious
as to its provisions, aluar firms aa well
as other kinds of firms begin to recnt
alog their wares. Then when the taxes
were announced, and the knowledge
was at hand of the Smaller amount of
tobacco to be obtained from Cuba, and
increased cost of production, and IKrge
numbers of our men being drafted for
military service, some of the dealers
became a bit hvsterieal and in read
justing prices to meet new conditions,
raised their prices a bit too high, aud
these have since been lowered.
