HAWAII A! I CAZr.TTi:," 1R1DAY. JANUARY 11,. 1918. .-'
T T ONOtULtTS, leading men were right there
A .1 at the icrttcK when the test (iW on Mon
day, when thecnamber "of commerce considered
the ' resolution kfcrng' j the president ? to ' use the
power, vested mliim &y' congress . to 'declare Oahn
dry territory')if,the duration of the war, ..' Nearly
a hundred representative -men' of the community,
representing-many i ideas, many interests, many
views at conflict' under normal conditions, voted as
cne'man to banish booze from Honolulu as a war
Tiicasure, Tlieiyote wid the enthusiasm. with which
it wav(Tecof4edj pveri i inspiring and increase the
pride- the Ivcrage Honolulan has in-his city, its
commercial leaders -and the patriotism it has de
monstrated,; -;.''. '-rN' iV; - '
We eBeve: that !this vote, of the chamber of
commerce should go 4 long way towards convinc
ing the men of the army and navy that the citizens
of Honolulu are sincerely desirous of doing what
lies within -their., power to. assist 'the fighting men
, in the stern tasks ahead of them.'.
There'could be no camouflage in Monday's vote,
llie unanimous decision of the business men
meant what k indicated, the willingness of the citi
xen to enter upon the same conditions as to intoxi
cants as the law enforces upon the man in uniform.'1
' If being deprived of the right to drink is a depriva
tion, it is one we ifhow we are . willing to share in
order to make that deprivation: absolute and equit
able; if the' right to' get drunk is a privilege, it is
one. we are willing, tq , forego, if Var. time prohibi
tion' is good- for "tat .Soldier,' Ware willing to as
sume that jtjs, good for all citizens.
. We iiave reasbn to believe that the petition ol
the chamber of commerce will be favorably receiv
ed at the AVhitt House and acted upon promptly.

THE national guard has stood Wore buffetting
and 'survived It tjiari. atiyon!. would have con
sidered possible; a year ago, and the very fact that
it has come Up smiling after the latest crack in its
direction frbm;,Vashirtgton ,ha inspired more res
ect for the organization than it haa .been given at
almost any! timerin'hs checkered career: '
; Right' on. jtoq( th notification from Provost
Marshal Crbwder that the guardsmen of. registra
tion age had tq put themselves, down for the draft,
irrespective of the guard membership or, the torn
missions they might hold, ' the men and officers
have started off. oft an intensive, training .course
punching dummies with their bayonets, attending
, c HkcrsV school and, turning out for regular drills.
This is 'spirit that begets confidence and it
is safe to ;say that the National Guard of Hawaii
stands ' better", with ! the man in the street today
than it didfa month 'ago, despite ,the ,fact. that it
has roasted itself severely since that time and lost
the right eff the members to stand exempt from
conscription.,, ,- :,'.T':,'.' '; vJ;,-
If the guard feels satisfied to keep, on going and
the only effect of knockdowns is to add vim to its
training, the jeist the' community pin do is to
r.tand baclc.-stop, criticising and give it a chance.
What we should do "is to applaud the grit that
officers and men are showing under exceptionally
trying conditions"'. and despite a series of slams,
some deserved and some undeserved.
7 police eourt'note the other day reported a de-
Z i mind for a fury trial on
charged with a violation of the
nances; the demand being granted by Judge lrwin.
The demand and its granting were strictly accord
ing to law and precedent, but they, work as an in
justice noon : the community, nevertheless. The
case, aa such cases go, was a comparatively unim
portant one, an ordinary, routine, one of alleged
peedine.x ' '7 , ,;
Under ordinary 'circumstances, if the man be
guilty, his fine would be around
lars; if lie were found to be not guilty, the cost of
his trial in 'the police court would be very small
Now, however; it will cost a hundred times more
to move' 'the ponderous machinery of the circuit
court for his case, whether he be guilty or not, and
he, will get no juster verdict.
We believe it-would be an excellent thing for
ili concerned-if j the circuit court judges were to
fix penalties idr 'convicted 4 misdemeanants who
have insisted .upon jury trials to include the ex
pense to which the dcfendanU have placed the gov
ernment1 In this 'Way guilty defendants would
not seek a jury trial in a minor offense, lest the
fine be what he would pay in the poh'ce court plus
ihe cxtx' amounts "hU case will have cost the tax
payers, v.vtnnoc'ent; 'defendant would suffer none
from such a practise and the public would be better-served'.','.

It is pointed out by the treasury department that
Thrift Stamps are not, made redeemable in cash
f 4; - the-'reason that these stamps ar simply in
tended as a convenient method for the small sav
er i accumulate chough to purchase War Sav
ins Stamps,. which bear interest and are redeem
able in cash.-' In addition, to provide for redemp
tion of these Thrift Stamps would involve such
an amount of detailed accounting and labor and
expense as to impair the practicability of their use.
In fact; they wou)d be more trouble and expense to
the government possibly than they are worth.

Lower Sugar Prices : J f: :
T'HE ability to produce staple' "crops year after
' year and market them at a low average price,
with moderate profits to both the labor and capi
tal employed, islheJbasis on which all great indus
tries have leeri lilejcl. H Igh, jrommod jt J- prjcei

the success and continuity of an 1 Industry, al
though irrj$tked1y profitable to transient Investors
ever on the' lookout for abnormakretuns Whether-the
particular business is.-!tne production of
sugar, cotton, steel, shoe leather, ot woolen goods,,
if profits are rq high that all the world has to pay
tribute, amounting to double or treble the normal
cost of producing the commodity, an impulse is
lorn in the minds of all consumers ottrjese stapjes
which, carried to its' logical tonclus'iofljAvould r
ray against them combinations of intelligence and
population and soil and climate which would be
irresistable. - . "v, ' ';
And so, in planning for the future of the sugar
industry, stress must be put on the importance of
getting sugar prices back down to a four cent level.
The longer-we delay., the greater the cupidity and
animosity aroused by pur unusuat fortunes, 'and
when normal times reappear great areas 6f unused
lands and vast accumulations Jof capital will be
throvyn into sugar production in other lands: Other
nations will be spurred to a supreme effort to com
pete 'with American" sugar growers.' , -
The producers of any commodity can control
prices downward more easily than on an ascend
ing 6cale, and this is the direction most often .tak
en by powerful combinations, of -producers al
though, in the average, non-analytical mind, credit
is seldom given monopolistic combinations for
.Nevertheless, for the preservation of the sugar
industry, and to protect it against the bitter com
petition that must ensue, if we are to believe the
half df what the warring nations say each as to the
part they and their people intend to bear in b6si
ness readjustments after the War; the American
sugar producers owe it to themselves, and to their
industr, to restore the period of low prices and
normal profits in time to fend off such destructive
Time was when Hawaii boa'stea of its scientific
method j of. production but Hawaii no longer en
joys! a jiHperior position in the sugar producing
world.' "ifcrienlific methods of production, labor
saving jijfachinery, advanced processes ; of manu
facture '4nd skill in distribution are no longer ad
junct tof Hawaiian sugar production, in greater de
gree than in other sugar lands. Our methods are
no less perfect, but the rest of the. world has caught
up in-the lines where, we formerly excelled. .The
possession of. superior methods of production is
no longer one of the - tangible Assets of our. in
dustry... "I ,.v:' .-; :;;-; . '. .
.A long continued era of high prices is therefore
fraught with-possibilities that may lead to ultK
mate disaster and it is well to begin to make plans
to put the industry back on a more conservative
basis. This is the -idea that is at the bottom of
price - fixing, for the elimination of
abnormal profits is one of the best methods of in
surance against destructive and aggressive com
petition after the war,
How many, spies, plotters and enemy agents in
the United States have been jerked before the fir
ing squad since this war started for America? So
far as is known, not one. And people wonder,
says the Los Angeles Times, why plots increase,
why the German agents grow more active, every
day, why arsenals are blown up, Governors' man
sions dynamited, forests-are fired, and the lawlesss
I W. W.'s openly join hands with the Kaiser's
men. The plotters art- daily apprehended and
sent 16 detention camps for the duration of the
war. And we are raising a tremendous army and
billions of dollars to kill off the Germans who are
rt least honorable enough to go into battle in uni
form, openly hostile, while these miserable rep
tiles lurking in our midst arecarefully fed and
clothed in comfortable prisons even when caught
at the most dastardly crimes. No shoot them!
America alone of all the embattled nations has not
be in the garb of pusillanimous
plain damnable intrigue, we cannot,
allow the soldier hero of America to
the back by traitors at home", says
Los Angeles. Unfortunately the
residential clause of the Organic Act prevent this
he-man being sent to Hawaii as Governor, where
we need a Governor able to say something patrio
tic. But we have, some men of Hawaii just as
forcible and just as American ana probably one of
them will be on the job in the Capitol shortly.
The Red Cross has mobilized an army of mil
lions of American women ior work on surgical
dressings, hospital garments, refugee clothing,
knitting garments and com tort kits. It is esti
mated .that the value of their work during the next
will be at least $40,000,000. The
Red Cross ,has promised to send three million
surgical dressings a month to France during the
first half of 1918.

beef will be more plentiful after thia
