Extensive ilntii in the hands of the
administration tends to show that the
present alignment of ranchers -and
butchers is such that grazing land Can
not be had by small cuttle raiser who
have made efforts to extend their eat
tie business and that these would, havt
diffirulty in placing their stock on the
niBrket in quantities ahirh would hvc
any appreciable effect on meat prices.
The points made are that the land
that is controlled by cattle ranches is
nbt'atillxed to the fullest extent; nc
influence ran he exerted which f will
oavert this controlled pasture land In
'oX Usefulness; and the reeomroenda
Hons of a special committee of the Ter
Itorial Food Commission which were
designed to overcome this sate nf a
fairs have been pigeonholed ever aincr
the facts were gathered almost a year
ago. 0,
. These are the contentions of Eber
Low, live member of th present fed
eral food administration and also one
of, the committee of three who made
the report to the Territorial Food
Commission.
Rocommendqtion Disregarded
: The recommendation of the commit
e was that some action he secured
whereby hundreds of seres of foreat
-eserve land suitnble for cattle raising
might be made available for this par
nose, but no move of this kind ha
been made in spite, Mr. Ixw say, of
meat situation in the Territory which
invites and encouraces war profiteer
Ing of a most menacing rhnmeter.
A cattleman ' association of eight
member controls ninety percent of th
grazing land on the Island of Haw!1
nd their a foliated and ,.,eontUed
butchers and aiarkfts effectively, ex
end this monopoly to every island of
the group, resulting In a practical a r
bitrary fixing of meat prices, and the
exclusion of non member whose activ
ities might disrupt the organization..
These are assertions . made, by M?
Uir based uion the findings .of the
committee which made a thorough tab
'ilntion of the facts with result whieh
they considered, alarming enough to
justify drastic action in throwing op
-n new land for pasture.
According to. Mr. Low, oalv one
-hinipg example of a Maui, rancher bar
revealed nny success en the part of an
independent outfit in combattiug these
conditions to the extent of placing
beef on the market in considerable
quantities. Another MaAii rancher has
refused to join the cattlemen's asso
eintion but has virtually aligied him
nelf with them to the extenhaof gain
ing access to their market, the commit
tee discovered. One rancher on I.anai
operates independently- and hae sue
ceeded jn placing stock in the hands
of a Chinese butcher in Honolulu, who
en n not obtain rattle from any of the
other rattle men.
Small farmers who have made at
tempts to enter the catlc business have
been frustrated at the outset by their
inability to secure grazing land si
though there i much of this land lvinp
idle tinder the control of tho aaaocin
lion, the committee reported. The
TerriturMil Marketing Division f Ho
nololu ia unable to invade the Honolulu
beef market to any extent because of
the fact that it secures no supply from
the hi.. rnuchers,
'T understand that this alarmist
situation is soon to be taken in hand
with a view of bringing- the government
tiowers to bear, on it." said Mr., l,pw
vesterday. "Mr. Child' visit to
Washington produced murh data and
nformstion relative to the powers of
'he food administration in coping with
this evil along, line that are beinp
idopted in virion section of the
tininland. and I believe it is true tltat
he plan to proceed at once in the
matter."
Clement of Danger
One of the principle points made is
he report by th committee, which eon
isted . of Albert Horner, chairmen;
vrunk Cooke and Mr. Low. wa. that
he meat situation in Hawaii demand
d that cows and heifers he conserved
for breeding purpose. Mr. low said
esterday that no attempt to heed this
taming has been mad by the eight
'urge cnttle raisers, who have harried
owa and heifers to slaughter at the
'iigh war price without regard, to wht
nay follow. The result 1 that the
herds have been depleted to a extent
'list has an element of danger in it
"I am in the eatt'e businesa jnvself
in a small way and I havewo brothers
in law who are also cattle raiser," said
Mr. Low. "Of course we hae al1
orofitcd by the unprecedented prices
for beef but we are all more interested
u the future provisioning of the Tor
ritory and in the justice of tho thing
than we are in what we are getting
out of the peculiar situation that ex
ists. ' '
Mr. I.ow asserts that in addition to
einvs, an absolute control of the sheep
industry exists which has not even a
pretense of competition. He Hns thBt
the opportunity to extrnet top prices
for meat ha been seized here to an
extent that come tinder the severest
tu.ldvuiiiutiou of Mr. VYilsou.
