s Biggest Monopoly and 1n Part
Responsible For High Prices;
Should Be "Busted"
"The 'Advertiser ia right when it
ays that the fishmarket ia the biggest
monopoly and responsible ia part for
fhs high coat of fish," aaid K. C. Win
ston, president of the Honolulu Fish
ing Company, one of the five companies
.-ngaged in the fishing business in Ho
loluln. "That is one trust which ought
to be busted by the food admlnistra
"Another monopoly which the food
administrator could and should regulate
n that of bait, which is now twelve
lollurs a basket when it used to be
three, and also He matter of the recent
rentala charged by the big land owner
f the Territory for the mullet pounds.
The bait monopolists and the pond own
cm ought to be brought back to the
pre war basis of profit."
Mr. Winston points out that The Ad
ertier included one ten percent eom-
nision against fish too manr in Its
utline of the eituation yesterday, but
tlierwise he had small fault, as the
head of one of the fishing companies,
o tha general review.
"I aee no practical reason why the
irheme for really stabilizing the fish
'itisinesa as outlined in The Advertiser
ould not be put into effect. It would
ower tha price of fish and would guar
'in tee every one legitimately in the
Su'innea a fair profit.
"The control, of course, would hove
'o be extended to the bait grounds and
he mullet ponds as well as' to the sea
Regarding the ten percent eommis
ion bow charged by the fishing com
mnies for the use of their credit in out
'itting the fishing boats. Mr. Winston'
is of the opinion that by the proper
onsoiKiating or tne companies tin
-Were could bo cut in half.
"T see no reason why the companies
ili ouiil not combine in this work, cut
nit the greater part of our office help
ind reduce out commission to five per
ent. I believe we could make more
ut of half the eommmxion undur n

German Ruthlessness Campaign
Faces Lack of Torpedoes
As Serious Menace
BASE OF AMERICAN FLOTILLA
IN BRITISH WATERS, February
(Associated Press) Shortage of tor
pedoes ta one of the most serious fkets
with which the directors of the ' Ger
man, Uboot war are now faced. It It
a well known and admitted fact that
German factories are at present 'abso
lutely unable to turn out first class tor
pedoea In anywhere near sufficient quae
titles for the needs of the submarines
In fact, the underwater rraff are bain fi
turned out faster thnn the torpedoei
with the result that recourse haa beer
had to various expedients to keep thr
submarines supplied with their chief
Gormany'a fleet of 1' I. oats must ear
ry thouaanda of torpedoes. Thousand
more must alwaya be ready in reserve
In fact tha reserye supply should b
larger, today than n -year ago to allov
for tha more freqoent rnlls made npor
it. The augmented destroyer paro'
la responsible for this. They bav(
made the submarines use up mora tor
pedoea and have reused them to re
turn to their base more frequently fir
reloading. . i.. ,'
Eight may be aaid to be the average
lumber of torpedoes carried in ono sub
marine. The number ranges from fou'
o twelve, according to the typo of sub
marine. The U-S3 which raided ship
r!ng off the Atlantic coast of the Unit
ed States carried ten. Mora reoea
types load aa many as twelve. -Mlae
layers can accommodate wo, fonr am
six, depending on their sixe.
In connection with this ahortaga a
tbo interesting fact that all U-boa'
eommaadera Dow ae strictly, ration
ed' as far aa tbelr upp!y, of, toraedocr
la coneeraed and are not permitted: tc
waste torpedoes ' on long . Mehanee
shots ", except aades elrcBmotaneof
which they moat explain ia detail at
justifying the expenditure of the proa
Ions underwater aniosiles. . . t i
Recently the German fnetoriea have
bona' turning but a smaller torpedr
which ia leaa aocnrately teated' br
which may be need- with a fair degree
of .'aertainty at chose range. Of late
very few German torpedoes have prov
ed effective unless at fairly close range
and it haa become nnusunl for a U-boat
commander to make any attempt at
merchant ship unless' he ran get wlthte
500 to 800 yards. "' . f(
The Germans , are now using ta-o
typea of torpedoes. ' They may be da
scribed as short-charge find full eharrr
torpedoes. The short charge is the bn
used mostly against merchant ohipplnr
and is flretl at 800 to 600 yatds. TV
full charge which has probably twice
the destructive . forfee and , ia better
made is. reserved. forWn-of-war. It if
flred sit a greater dialance nd is used
less frequently 'thdn he cheaper tor
podo. j ,. i.
But the comparative immunity of thr
American .destroyers' from torpeAo at
tnck despite the Ipsa of 4he Jacob
.Toues and the slighf disaV)emen,t of
the Casein ia noteworthy la this con
nectinn. The Get-raana hate the Ameri
can destroyers aa one of thc wor1''
enemies in their moHt?eTtlle field oi I',
action and there ia scarcely an Amorj
can destroyer but. has bad one or won
Herman torpedoes flred at her, yet on
ly twice have the torpedoes found their
mark. , .
The Amoricans and the British wltl
whom they are cooperating so sue
ceHHfiilly in this game of Vuuting "tin
fish. ' attribute their immunity to tb
moliilitr of the dentroyer. The alert
nefin of the Amerirrn Tiavnl men cou
pled with their well known keennes
for offensive tactics against th sub
marine have been reeponaible for thoi
alight losses. Sharp lookouts and skill
full maneuvering enable them to ekeat
the Germans so often.' '
MEMORY OF FAMOUS
BY FORMER PRESIDENT
HAMPTON, Virginia, January 27
William Howard Taft, president of the
Hampton Inxtitute board of trustees,
delivered today an address in memory
of (Jen. Samuel Chapman Armstrong
distinguished soldier-oducator who
founded the Hampton school in INtiN,.
and for twenty five yenra devoted nil
his power of body, mind, and heart to
the development of vocational edura
tion for colored and Indian youths and
the promotion of good will among all
cluKBC-i ami races.
"Armstrong luunehed the struggle of
a race to deserve freedom to vindicate
its citiacnidiip to justify eipjulity of op
portunity," Mr. Tuft said. "It h
given to few men by their efforts, un
uided by circumstances, opposed by
prejudice, injustice, and contemptuous
criticism, to win the victory which was
Armstrong '. His name will go down
in history with that of Lincoln as u
grcut benefactor of the negro race."

THREE-POUND FOWL BEST
Housewives ran help tba rfnrat situa
tion by buying f three-pound broilers
and friera and refusing to use "siuab
chickena" weighing a pound, one halt
or less. Dresaed-poultry specialists of
the United States Department o( Agri
culture urge thia, aa a conservation
measure. Serving under-developed or
"puab chickens" in hotels, restau
rants and honies is regarded as a waste,
tor if kept, four weeka longer, includ
ing two weeka of crate fleshing, such
fowls would weigh about three pounds.
Muroover, under proper feeding, a
chicken makes the extra flesh, largely
from such by-products not ordinarily
gsed for human food, auch as butter
milk, skim milk and low grade grains.
