THE ADVERTISER'S M-WEEKLT
Univejsp fitrvide ,
WH tty nChicagp audience winch lias gather
ed to hear Billy Sunday indorses universal
military service in a resolution to be sent to III i
noi's members of congtess', a symptom of changing
aentiment is revealed.
Sunday is a fighting evangelist and with liis
,'- tmotional control over his auditors is a powerful
','. factor in shaping sentiment, but eveti he could not
'get cheers for universal Service xutt of people who
; were afraid of the very name of the thing.
"(, i We believe that there is more rationality in the
public mind on this subject than there is in pok
itics. The people, we are certain, have disposed of
great deal of altruistic rhetoric and realize that
- the United States is to fight in this war because
.the security of. the United States is involved in
j the war.'
; They also realize that we said in April that we
-. ' were at war and that in January we are not fight
v' Ing because we have nothing with which to fight.
They must realize that extraordinarily fortunate
conditions permit nearly a year's delay and that
.conditions may not be extraordinarily fortunate
again. They may be importunate, -cruel, desper
fcte, and destructive, '
' ' We believe that the people are hoping that this
'thing will never happen again and that they realize
that the events which may force the use of an
, army are largely beyond the power of any one
' nation to control. We believe that sentiment for
' a good protective system is growing more rapidly
r ' than congress thinks it is.
. , i Here we;a in a ramble for defenses in the
fourth year of a war which has warned us from
' the start and which has claimed us as a belligerent
: ' since .April. Th govieVhment which is trying to
fight the war asks the people to rest easy aftef
such an experience and take their chances again.
We do not believe they are willing to do it.
- How's This For
"Profiteering"
MR. HOOVER has declared that "profiteer
ing" is contrary to good morals and good
i manners, in these strenuous days when "each for
all and all for each," shouWbe the national slogan.
; Right you are, Mr. Hoover ! You have a big
- job on your hd&There are; plenty .'of cbstacks
in your path and many to find 'fault.'- Hawaii is
not going to join in any coyote howl, because you
U; have pulled the soft stop on the price of sugar;
". but it does leave rather a sour taste in our mouths
when we read in the papers that a steamship com
- pany is paying over 400 percent per annum in
dividends on a five million dollar capital, besides
i ' piling up- a sixteen million dollar cash surplus.
...It is the American public that is paying this
tribute. If it is not "profiteering," what is it?
.': Mr. Hoover's attention is called to the 1917
statement of American-Hawaiian Steamship Co.,
; 'as follows : t "
The Amei i an Hawaiian Steamahip Company ha
just made tu ita stockholders a special year-end die
.: bursement of $225 share. With the six other ape
' rial dividends ranging from $20 to 150 and tha reg
ular dividend of $10, the American Hawaiian actually
' . paid out to stockholders in 1917 a total of $405 a
share.
Tha company extraordinary prosperity ia another

.' " it operated a moderate buaineaa from tew York to
'' . San Francisco, thence out to the Hawaiian Islands."
'' Since then it haa been operating mainly on tram At

to all such carriers.

t' . lug 190,000 tonnage, have been commandeered by the
' : -.Federal Whipping Board. On the basis of $0 per ton,

$800,000 a month, or nearly $200 per share ou its

BREVITIES!
The Week Iji the War
MILITARY operations on the Western Front
"last week were considerably below the nor
mal in violence and in resultswhile on the Italian
front the fighting .was less sever than that;which
occurred prior to the setting i& of ' real winter
weather. In Palestine activities have not been
hampered or delayed by meteorological conditions
as has been the case in Europe." -
Despite the desire of all of the Allies for an early
and successful peace which can result only from
a complete victory, or perhaps, it should be sakl
because of those reasons, absence of reports of vio
ent hostilities on the Western ' Front does not
cause chafing at delay but is rather welcomed for
in it the AJlies can see defeat of the Teuton plans.
r.very nay oi tieiay, every aay oi comparative in
activity on the part of the enernjr is adding to the
preparedness of the Allies to meet any offensive
which may be launched aqd is putting just so
many more fighting men of the American contin
gent into the trenches.
Delay on the Western Front weakens the hopes
t.f the (lermans who had without doubt expected
to take advantage of their own-increased man
power to deliver heavy blows before the Allies
could be greatly strengthened by the arrival of
trained American soldiers j For several weeks
past those plans have been frustrated and when
ever, in an interval of less severe and stormy
weather, the Germans have started offensives such
attacks have met with little success, Thus mean
time the Allies are growing stronger while the
Germans, if there is any change, are weakened.
A month ago it was expected the Germans would
ere this have forced the fighting and the public
was warned that some reverses were to be ex
pected. These have not occurred and each day of
delay makes their occurrence a more remote pos
sibility. In Northern Italy the Italians andtheir Allies
have had. the "best of the recent fighting. On the
PjavcRive gains have been made by the Italians
and the counters of the enemy were all success
fully, repulsed. The hardships which the Austro
Germans are encountering on the Asiago front
and in the higher and more mountainous regions
are affecting them more seriously, it is evident,
than the similar hardships which beset the Allies.
Reports tell of the prisoners taken being lightly
clad and in rags and tattersX" -i y

Western or the Italian front and the possibility of
the trnce on the Russian fronts becoming an actual
peace is less menacing to the Allies than it was a
week ago, when it had already somewhat dimin
ished. In Palestine General Alhjnby is conducting his
campaign in a businesslike fashion which is most
disheartening' to the Turks. He is proceeding to
cut them to pieces and disintegrate their forces
"piece meal," reports say. There at least the
campaign has been progressing to the satisfaction
of the Allies and the Ottoman power is being
driven out for all time to come.
Indications of how the submarine campaign is
viewed by the cold eye of business is found in the
reports of reductions in mariue insurance rates by
Lloyds, which considers the danger to merchant
craft as diminished and has constjently reduced
rates. Last reports on merchant -Joshes to the
Allied shipping showed considerable decrease over
the preceding week in the case of Great Britain

War Bread
AN incidental benefit from war may be the dis
covery of wheat by Americans. Their knowl
edge of this grain has been limited by experience
with a Hour which came from wheat. War regu
lations will give them a flour which is a wheat
Hour, a flour not derived from wheat but consist
ing of wheat.
They have been told that the refining processes
which millers found necessary in satisfying public
demand produced a flour which made" a les palat
able loaf than the whole wheat loaf. Their own
tastes denied that or ignored it. They have been
told that the refining resulted in a loaf from which
wholesome qualities of wheat were eliminated.
That made no impression. They have been told
that there was a great deal of waste in the refining.
That made no impression. The American wanted
refined flour and a white loaf and got it. Now
war necessity requires that more of the wheat be
kept in the flour and necessity may develop a new
national habit.
It is estimated that the new regulations for mill
ing will save 16,000,000 bushels of the next crop.
In addition it will make Americans acquainted
with good bread. Chicago Tribune.

STILLHAS HOPES
Returns From Washington With
Belief That His- Chances For Be
coming Governor Are "Bright"
Professor William A.- Bryan of the
College of Hawaii, one.of those in the
race for appointment as Governor, re
tnrned from the mainland yesterday.
He said be was in Washington just
before he left for the Pacific (Joast
and that the political situation as far
as the appointment of a Governor for
Hawaii is concerned "remains un
changed ' '.
Just before he left Washington Pro
feasor Bryan said he had had a "sat
isfactory interview" with Secretary of
the Interior Lane. lie. intimated that
be believed after interviewing mem
bera of the cabinet and members of
the house and senate that his chances
of receiving the appointment are
bright.
Professor Bryan saul that all the
departments at the national rapitol
are working at top speed with war
measures ind lie expressed the view
that the delay in making appointments
here, both tat of Governor and lor
the vacancy in the supreme court, is
due to the great press of important
work with which the President is en
gaged.
Professor Bryan left Honolulu last
July on aabhatical leave. He took with
him a collection of Hawaiian molHiaks
to the Philadelphia Academy of Natu
ral Science and in work done there

ciation for the Advancement of Sci
ence at Pittsbugrh, the American Geo

Cooperation Asked

Capt. William Foster, harbormaster, de
clares he is satisfied that he has not
yet seen tha and of thia duty which fell
to him when the harbor commissioners
deeided to make the approaches to all
territorial wharves restricted territory.
It haa been a full week 's work for
Captain Foster, as the guard was first
established last Monday morning. At
tha end of the first six days he aays he
has 'only one request to make of the
publie "cooperation."
"The guarding of the waterfront is
for the publie aafety and I would like
to ask that everyone cooperate in every
manner possible," he explains.
Csptsin Foster says that as a rule the
public haa been very indulgent of the
hew rqstrictions put upon its liberty
and has given the guards very little
trouble in enforcing tha rules. How
ever, he asserts, there are few who have
been troublesome. .('.But taerej flvraTs

Normaa Watkins. Member of the har
bor commission, believes that with the
addition of the military guard it will
now be possible to reduce the number
of men acting as territorial guarda.
How many he has not yet estimated.
"But there will have to be quite a
number of the private guards retained
as the military authorities will Insist
on Identification being made through
these guards at all entrances to
wharves,'.' he says.

Judgef Takes Occasion To Tell of
;tees' Secured When Ha Pro
v vides Maintenance For; Heir Jo
a' Parker Ranchi khii-
. In rendering a decision granting s
yearly allowance of 413,650 .for the
maintenance ': of little fouf yer-old
Riekird Smart,' son of tha lata.Thelma
Parker 8mar, and heir to all the vast
Parker ranch and to other estates on
Hawaii, Circuit Judge Ashford yester
day took occasion to flay lawyers ,who,
he aaid, had. raided'! the Parker Ea:
tate during litigation sometime- aga
and were gives fees amounting to $90,-
' Haddled with tha payment of these
vast feee from his income, the little fel
low 'a maintenance waa set at $2000,
despite tha desire of his grandmother,
Mrs. Elizabeth Knight to bring the boy
np on the-mainland and give him tha
education which his wealth, at it seem
ed to her, should be had.
"The author of an incomparable
poem speaka of the 'short and simple
annals or tne poor' ", said judge Ash
ford in his opening paragraph, . "I
would heartily wish that the 'annals'
of this 'poor little rich boy' were equal
ly short and simple."
Auto Purchase Included
; In his decisloa the Judge deoided that
tha maintenance should be 112,650,
which Is 12,550 mora than Mrs. Knight
asked for, and about 1500 more than
the special master, Attorney .Carl R
Carlsmith, recommended. This is to
Include the purchase of an automobile
at 12500. There will be. for the com
ing twelve months 10,050 for the use
ef the boy and those in charge of him.
When the father and mother of the
boy died a few years ago,, the courts
placed Kiehard rtmart in tne'tontrol
of his grandmother, formal Judge' W. L.
Whitney issning ait order establishing
2000 a year as the annual expense for
bis bringing np. Mrs. Knight ; last
ver asked that thia be increased and
in order to arrive at a basia for thia
request Attorney Carlsmith, appointed
as special msater, -went to haa Fran
cisco and examined minutely into the
reasons, and recommended, 111,000 in
stead of the former 2000. It was de
clared that the boy was 1eierg brought
up in aa atmosphere of the best home
influences and. naturally, owing to the
wealth of the Parker Estate, his grand
mother had rented a suite of apart
ments: whlrh the ' atUrnev - considered
was Justified under all circumstances.
The Judge deeided also that of the
Annual amount allowed, 250 a' month
should be given to Mrs. Knight as eon
tributory to- tha -upkeep of the borne,
ss ayiOO a year for a governess, this
fsjflSifil o cease when the boy reaches
Hie" 'age of six yeafs.' Thereis,-Hwed
150 a month for auto- upkeep, includ
ing chauffeur, or 1800 a year.
Allowance Tot Charities
Following a custom of years the Judge
allows 100 a year for charities and
donations, to be used largely in gifts
to employes or the i'arker Kanch, In
cluding pensioners too old for active
service in roping the steers whieh have
made the ranch , the most famous in
toe entire Pacific region.
The judge calls attention to the fact
that the Smart baby has an income of
90,000 a year and aays also that the
annual income of the grandmother is
about 40,000.
The Judge is strong in the belief
that the child should be raised in Ha
waii, although Mrs. Knight "has assert'
ed many times that the boy's health
is better in Ran Francisco than any
where else, and this is said to be be
cause of the frail health of the boy's
parents. Commenting on this phase
Judge Ashferd ssys:
"I could heartily wish that the de
votion referred to might be manifest
ed by a greater degree of unselfish
ness with respect to the plaee and r.li
matie conditions of the 'child 's resi
denee. It must not be supposed that
she '(Mrs. Knight) is the only person
alive to whom the welfare and rearing
of the child can be safely or advan
tageouslv entrusted." The judge be
lieves that ten rooms for apartments
are a lot for a woman and a bov. He
also believes that 500 is altogether too
much for clothes for a four year old
boy, figuring this down to 1.36 a day.
jTsreus upon "Kaias"
Switching then to the "raids" on
the estate, he 'says these were about as
beneficial to the interests of Richard
Smart as "is the Hun invasion of Bel
gium to the liberty, art and architee
ture of that unfortunate country."
The "raids" he refers to included
the litigation following Mrs. Knight's
contest of the will of her daughter, the
late Mrs. Thelma Parker Smart.
"With his death (ot the father f
Richard Smart1!", adds Judge Ashford
"the comparatively small Income pro
vlded for this baby boy through the
medium of the father's trust flpe'd to
the Trent Trust Co., and which lv the
'compromise' mentioned, and as order
of the court based thereon, had been
saddled with the greater part of these
fees also went by the board. There
waa consternation in the ramp nf the
attorneva whose claims were at yet un
paid."'
