THE ADVERTISER'S SEMI-WEEKLY
A Proclamation
MAN1 A itietiat4 contributed to create the
nettsfitjrof iore intensive effort on the
" ' ... part of otif people to ave food in order that we
may supfy our assot bates in the war with the sus
tenance vitally ihe&Ji.ry to them in these days of
privatiori and'. irYest. . The reduced productivity
of Europe because of the large diversion of man
power to the war, the partial failure of harvests,
and the elimination of the more distant markets
for foodstuffs through the destruction of shipping
places the burden of their subsistence very largely
on our shoulders.'
The Food Administration has formulated sug
gestions which, if followed, will enable us to meet
this great responsibility, without any real incon
venience on our part.
In order that we may reduce our consumption of
i' ' wheat and wheat products by thirty percent a
reduction imperatively necessary to provide the
,' " ' supply for overseas wholesales, jobbers and re
tailers should purchase and resell to their custom
ers only seventy percent of the amounts used in
1917. All manufacturers of alimentary pastes, bis
; cuits, crackers, pastry and breakfast cereals should
'';. reduce their purchases and consumption of wheat
and wheat Hour to seventy percent of their 1917
, requirements, and all bakers of bread and rolls to
- ' eighty percent of their current requirements. Con
'.v; sumers should reduce their purchases of wheat
products for home preparation to at most seventy
7 percent of those of last year, or, when buying
iread, should purchase mixed cereal breads from
, the bakers.
, To provide sufficient cereal food, homes, public
eating places, dealers and manufacturers should
substitute potatoes, vegetables, corn, barley, oats,
V and rice products, and the mixed cereal bread and
other products of the bakers which contain an
admixture of other cereals.
In order that consumption may be restricted to
.. . ' this extent, Mondays and Wednesdays should be
! observed as wheatless days each week, and one
meal each day should be observed as a wheatless
. V. meal.
In both homes and public eating places, in order
to reduce the consumption of beef, pork and sheep
products. Tuesday should be observed as meatless
day in each week, one meatless meal should be
observed in each day; while, in addition, Saturday
in each week should further be observed as a day
"..'' upon which there should be no consumption of
pork -products.
A continued economy in the use of sugar will
''' be necessary until later in the year.
, :v ' The maintenance of the health and strength of
.'. our fwn people, is vitally necessary at this time,
and there should be no dangerous restriction of
' the food supply; but the elimination of every sort
of waste and the substitution of other commodities
; ; . of which we have more abundant supplies for
those which we need to save, will in no way impair
the strength of our people and will enable us to
. ; meet one of the most pressing obligations of the
war.
I, therefore, in the national interest, take the
liberty of calling upon every loyal American to
take fully to heart the suggestions which are being
circulated by the Food Administration and of beg
A SVS tnat they be followed. I am confident that
the great body of our women who have labored
; ao loyally in cooperation with the Food Adminis
, , tration for the success of food conservation will
... strengthen their efforts and will take it as a part
of their burden in this period of national service
to see that the above suggestions are observed
; - throughout the land.

After War Business
ALRFRT HA l.l.I X. the greatest organizer and
financier in ( icrmany, wrote early last De
cember to Privy Councillor von Rathenau warning
hini that the entrance of America into the war
spells disaster to the cause of the Central Powers
rrespecti c of whether (icrmany wins or loses on
'.he held of battle.
In terse phrases Rallm recited that "our people
l.ave little or no knowledge of the American char
acter. The Americans are the most idealistic na
tion on 1 1 i - face ol the earth. They would not
haxc, entered the lists as our foes had they had
any doubt as to the justice of their cause. It is
nonse14.se to assert that they have been influenced
I y ( ireat I'ritain".
Before the w ar ( iermany depended largely on
Cireat Britain, especially on England's' tropical
colonies for her raw materials. Unless, when peace
comes, she can resume hex trade in these markets
it will take mure thau one generation to rehabili
tate her fallen fortunes. "I realize as never be
fore", says Ballin, "that all the increase is our
wealth, all the success which attended our enter
prises in the years before the war were owing to
our commercial intercourse with the British Ktn
i .ire. Iler home ports, her dominions and colonies
were freely opened to our shippers and traders.
"All I say is, that whether we beat her or she
beats us. the consequences will be the same dis
aster for our overseas trade if Cireat Britain so
wills it." And he further says that (ierman fright
tulness has sU alienated the respect of all mankind
that even the conditions imposed by a victor, as
suming that it is withm the grounds of possibility
that his own country may yet win the war. even
if the Huns secure free entry of their goods into
'he world markets, cannot compel that confidence
which is the basis of successful trade.
The chamber of commerce of the United States
has just passed resolutions which leave no doubt
as to what the attitude of our own businessmen
:s going to be. I he Kaiser has gone to great
lengths to impress it upon the world that there is
no honor in a Herman promise, and that "(lood
Faith''., in business, or in diplomacy, is a relative
term only, 4o be interpreted as the seeming "neces
sity" from the ( ierman angle demands.
The Teuton traders cannot go ahead, after war.
on the old basis of dealing with an unenlightened
business constituency. All the world has learned
:o distrust them and it is that universal distrust
'hat is going to undo whatever military success
the "mailed fist" of their ruler is able to wrest
from the allies.
:o:
Camouflage Trading
A significant phase of the war situation is that
practically all the (ierman traders and plant
ers who were driven out of India, Australia, the
Philippines, China, Japan and other Oriental lands
; s "alien enemies" have, in obedience to instruc
tions from Berlin, made no attempt to return to
Cerniany. By the hundreds these have retired to
'he Dutch Fast Indies, there to await the end of
the conflict and be ready to commence the cam
paign to again establish (ierman trade relation--liips
throughout the Orient.
1 1 the Huns were content, as other nations are,
to devote themselves to commerce pure and sim
ple there would be little cause to pay close atten
tion to their after-the-war (dans. However, every
one now knows that wherever the (ierman mer
chant Hag goes, legitimate trade is only camou
flage Scratch a Hun trader and one finds a Pan
(ieriuauic apostle whose true ideal is to extend
the rule of the Kaiser and his "super-men" over
;.ll the earth.
I he longer the war lasts the less likelihood will
ihete be of the Allies permitting unrestricted (ier
man trade with neutral nations. W ith that pur
pose in view the (iermans have bought control
ling interests in many Dutch, Spanish, Swedish
ami Norwegian industrial and shipping companies
-iui e August, 1914. Hence the longer the struggle
Lists the less probability is there of the Allied
nations looking with favor on the extension of
(ierman commerce through this medium, either.
Commercial (iermany seeks an early icace, almost
that "peace at any price" which was the slogan
of our own pacifists before the United States en
'ered the conflict.
It behooves the American people to keep an
"eve to windward", studying with care the com
position of corporate interests seeking American
trade alliances from the vantage ground of the
Orient. Xames do not signify. It may be quite
well to look deeper into the financial complexion
of alleged "Oriental" concerns, not taking them
. t the face value their titles and apparent owner
1 11 1 would imply.
It is well known that Duke John Albert of
M 11 Is 1 1 1 1 1 iii rg - Sch w cr i 11 , the wealthiest of (ier
in.inv's plutocrats, and Prince Henry of the Xeth-
1 I. ni' Is. the consort of Oueeu W ilhelmina, be
tween them own a controlling interest in the (ier
ui. in Dutih Fast India Company and the lines of
Diiii Ii -tcaniships which thev operate in Oriental
w.i'iis (iermany counts on the scores of similar
op. ii 1 in rsliips that have been formed throughout
1 In I ast for the reestablishment of her colonial
trade on about the same basis as before the war,
and it is in cases like this that America must keep
awake, lest the profits froni these quasi-neutral
01 ni, 1 1 urns flow directlv through the pockets
ol (ierman investors into the coffers of the (ier
man W .ir Lord.

That extraordinary rhangea are tak
ing place at the Volcano, is the state
ment made by I.. Wl Via Norton, who
returned from a visit to the crater on
Tuesday. The lake is now about thir
ty five feet be loss- the rim of the inner
pit, but rises and falls through a rndins
of from ten to fifteen feet with great
rapidity. Conditions on Sunday were
very unfavorable for sightseeing, and
the lake was comparatively quiet but
the weather was clear the following
morning, and a rapid rise was in
progress.
The bench Immediately beneath the
usual observation oint has been built
outward into the pit about five feet W
more during the past week, and a de
rent to this revealed the fact that it
waa red hot less than three feet from
the surface. The great craj on the ripht
hand aide of the main channel, which
was seventy feet high two weeks back,
haa now almost entirely disappeared,
while the bench close by, which, two
months ago was only two feet above
the surface of the lake, has now be
come a sharply uplifted ledge and has
risen to aOeh a height above the rim of
the pit, that from the east rest house
the view of the lake is now wholly
obscured.
las pressures continue extraordin
arily Jiigh and the quiet peri mis of ris
ing apear to have become shorter, and
alternate with wonderfully impressive
exhibitions of fountaining and bom
bardment in every portion of the lake.
The left hand crag of the main channel
is viaibly rising every day and ia devel
oping a sharp tilt which will bring
the whole mass crashing down within a
few days. There is no indication what
ever of any coming subsidence of the
lake as a Whole and the prevailing con
ditiona seem likely to continue for at
least another month.
The southwest pond, or subsidiary
lake ia exhibiting great activity and
has become elevated to a considerable
height above the main lake. A large
rythmic fountain waa playing from ita
center on Hunday afternoon, and there
was much noise of gas blowing from
many high cones and from under the
benches at the lake surface.
Large numbers of people from every
part. of Hawaii are visiting the crater
and agree that the lake is now more
spectacular than at any time within the
memory of living man. The fumes are
Uarv- thin a4.a fine sie-fttafforge),
during clear weather. The mountains
of Mauna J.oa and Mauna Kea are heav-
lly covered with snow and present a
magnificent sight.

DOCTOR GOODHUE HAS !
TALK WITH f f JSIDENT
Also Sees Secretary Baker and
Strongly Urges That Liquor
Be Banished From Hawaii
(By ERNEST O. WALKER)
WASHINGTON, January L'O (Moil
Special to The Advertiser) Hawaiian
activities at the Cnwital are gTowio'gin' '
volume and interest of late. An tin
usual number of more or less notable
visitors from the Islands have been
coming to Washington this season.
Several of .them have been here regard
ing the governprMhip, which remains un
determined. But quite a precesaion of
influential people have been coming
here and bearing n hand on business
of importance.
One of these is Mr. Oeorge MiK.
MrClellan, who has taken up his sta
tion in Washington bs representative
of the chamber of commerce. As is
well known in Hawaii, Mr. McClellan
has a very large acquaintance among
officials nt the Federal Capital and he
knows the ways of getting around aftd
achieving results. He came here from
Seattle and his family will follow him
(ere in the spring, when n son is out
of school.
The question of prohibition for Hn
waii is receiving considerable attention
here. Mr. McClellan took the matter
up some dnys ago with Secretary of
War Baker, being accompanied on bis
visit by Representative William C.
Houston, of Tennessee, chairman of the
house Territories committee. Secretary
Baker seemed disinclined to issue any
order to put prohibition into operation.
The point over which he sticks is with
reference to the civilinn population.
Goodhue Sees President
Following Mr. McClellnn's visit to
the war department, Dr. K. 8. Ooodbne,
of Honolulu, hal a talk with Secretary
Baker about it ami also an interview
with President Wilson. The President
was much interested in what Doctor
fioodhurt bad to say on this subject as
well as on other Hawaiian matters.
Doctor (looilhue had come to Washing
ton by way of . San Antonio, Tcxa.
where he visited the great aviation
camp there and studied vice and liquor
problems. Doctor (ioodhue was told at
San Antonio tin t sixty five percent of
the patronage of questionable houses
is from soldiers under the influence
of liquor. The President promised Doc
tor Goodhue that he would make in
lv of Secretary Baker regarding the
status in'Hawaii and ascertain wtiat 1
could be done, la the meantime, Sen
ator Shafroth is preparing a bill to put
prohibition in form in Hawaii, but
the provisions of this bill do not al
together meet with Doctor (ioodhue's
npprovnt. lie has conferred with Sen
ator Sliafroth about amendments but
has received little assurance that Sen
ator Shafroth will assent.
Plnkham's Hopes Shrink
Opinion here seems to increase that
Governor Pinkham will not be reiinmin
ated. Doctor (ioodhue, although a Re
publican, was given opportunity to talk
frnnklv with Secretary of the Interior
.Lane and Prescient Wilson on the sub
ject of the governorship. His exten
sive informal ion and his frankness
seemed to make an impression. But
there is no assurance that action will
be taken i iniiiediately. One can simply
uaske no prediction on that score. The
President is very busy with war affairs.
He may take up the Hawaiian govern
orslnp any day or he may not consider
it for a month or two. However, there
is little warrant fur believing that he
will make no numiniition a-t all, simply
ullowing tio ernor Pinkham to serve on
under his old i-ouimiHsiou. It is a safe
statement the President will not do
that.
Hutchins and Raymond
The contest seems to have narrowed
down to two aspirants Raymond and
Hutchins. Whether Raymond has a
hIiii.1.' the belter of it is largely a mat
ter of opinion but Huti'hins has the
stronger endorsement tin file. Doctor
RnYtnoihl, of course, has not busied
himself personally in furthering his
candidacy at Washington. That may or
iiiuv not count in In:, t'uvor. Mr. Hut
chins, on the other huml, is right on
the ground here, looking after his in
terestx and advancing his candidacy.
Whether his vigorous activity iu this
regard stands as a matter of strength
for him, is also a question. Some would
say "yes" and iu certain quarters
there is doubt about it.
Doctor (ioodhue is understood to have
assumed antagonism to no candidate,
but discussed the qualifications of the
several men freely. He likewise spoke
his opinions fully with regard to Gov
ci nor Pinkham. declaring that he count
red himself as a good friend of the
Governor. But he told officials that
he thought the time was at hand for
a change in the Oovcnrwa'r office, as
(lover nor Pinkham had now passed the
days of usefulness to the Territory and
to the federal government at Washing
I on.
Goodhue Busy Man

of prominent uien during his sojourn

members of tin cabinet already men
tinned, ii ti I K.v President 'Theodore
