"'' Universal military service, as Mr. Taft perceives,
would not create a htrge military establishment in
the United States, says the Chicago Tribune in
comment. Our opponents seek constantly to bury
I :: the universal service idea under the odium of
- armor. They beguile the nation with pictures of
a country groaning under its armament or belli

.,.. They inveigle the good judgement of the na
tion into the lielief that universal service will be a
, deliberate search for war; that a nation adopting
it will yield itself up to Moloch ; that it is a policy

and fear instead of open-mindedness and courage

THE ADVERTISER'S SU3-WEEKLY
War and Charity
"While each community is sacrificing men, -money
and food for the actuak work, of war
abroad in the interest of world "democracy,
they have a parallel duty to their country and
to the world to maintain those institutions
which are the concrete embodiment of world
democracy at home."
THIS sentiment is expressed in the prospectus
being circulated in furtherance of the cam
paign for funds of the new Interracial Y. M. C.
A., soon to be dedicated. It ia a sentiment that
applies to this new institution and to the great
majority of the already established institutions.
War demands are great and pressing and must be
responded to, but not at the expense of those in
stitutions doing their useful work in the commu
nity.! There is true patriotism in responding to the
call for funds from the Interracial Y. M. C. A.,
the object of which is to carry on and complete'
the elimination of race prejudice in this Paradise
of the Pacific, than which no work is more worthy
and no work of more vital importance, not only
to this directly affected community but to the en
tire Pacific Circle.
There is true patriotism in the support given to
Leahi Home. It is no less essential that we should
fight the spread of tuberculosis among ourselves
than among the French and" Belgians. We must
continue to safeguard our own future by caring
for the destitute among us, by providing homes,
clothing, food and education for the children whom
fate has cast upon the community. The Associ
ated Charities, the Salvation Army, the Palama
Settlement, the various Christian missions, all
must be supported as formerly. To abandon them
in order to turn over the cash saved tp the war
funds would be unpatriotic, unreasonable and un
profitable. We must meet the demands for money for Red
Cross, Liberty Loans, tobacco funds, relief work
abroad and war charities, but these must be IN
ADDITION to the support of otir own necessary
institutions. Otherwise our war giving will not
be in sacrifice for our country's need but only at
the expense of the helpless ones at our own door.

TJHAT the American war savings drive is al
ready running ahead of. the English cam
paign, in volume' of weekly treasury recerptsia
shown by comparative figures recently made pub
lic by the National War Savings Committee.
The treasury war chest in the four weeks of
February has been enriched by $40,000,000 from
sales of war saving certificate stamps, while the
latest four-week returns from England reach only
As the total American war savings are now
in e::cess of $70,000,000, and are running close to
$2,000,000 a day, it is anticipated that the first
$100,000,000 will be recorded in the third week in
March, or in a little more than three months after
the first offering of the stamps by the treasury.
It took England seven months to top the first hun
Comparison of the first three months' returns
in the two countries shows that our daily average
has been in excess of the weekly average in Eng
land at the beginning of the movement. The
figures are as follows:
First month England, $5,172,000; America,
Second month England, $2,719,000; America,
Third month England, $3,402,000; America,
Three months England. $11,293,000; America,
The National War Savings Committee, in com
menting on the rapid development of the savings
campaign, said :
The $2,000,000 a day now flowing into the treasury
from the small savings of the people indicate what a
great reserve the government has to draw on in a na
For the business of war the nation hus need eaeh
day for the labor products of millions of citizens en
gaged in agriculture, mining, manufacturing and trans
portation. Mosey alone will not command these ne
cessities of war.
But a the people reduce their expenditures for per
sonal comforts and luxuries, and put their surplus
earnings into government loans, tbey transfer their
buying power to the government. Two millions a
day saved and loaned to the nation means two millious
to lie spent by the government to win the war instead
of lv private citizens for iiersoual sutifactiou.
The $70,000,000 of spending power already put at the
service of the government by the buyers of war sav
ings securities has transferred from millions uf iwckct
books to the national treasury command of the lubor
ii ml materials to build fleet of ueurlv a hundred

POND MULLET SUPPLY
Fish Being Hoarded, Says Eben
The probability that the poud mullet
supply of the Territory will be com
nandeered by the food administration
unless the pond men bring the fish to
market at the present prices it Immi
neat, according to a statement made
yesterday by Kben Low of the fish com
mittee of the Vigilance Corps.
Mr. Low made the atsertion last
night that he had absolute proof that
the pond mullet men were hoarding
The revelation of rases where 150
percent profit is made in the handling
of mullet is one of the complaints on
waica Mr. Low will insist on a show
down with the mullet men in order that
they shall be forced to abandon their
attempt to dictate to the government
the price of the fish that they bring
la, Mr. Low believes that the eon
tention that they are waiting for a
promised grading of mullet prices is
only a Cloak, to eover the real purpose
Of the pond men in withholding their
supply from the public.
Mr. Low sayt that an investigation
Of the eost of producing the fish has
shown that the price of twenty eentt
per pound act by the administration
is a just price to all concerned. In the
face of this statement, however, Mayor
Fern visited the market yesterday and
insisted that the priee is too low and
that the fish men are entitled to twen
ty five eentt for this variety.

nual Territorial Fair which it to be

a wa tftne enterprise and, we believe,
WiU prove tne biggest factor In ship
space conservation and food production
so far brought into play In these Is
land, and that it is entitled to support
on that bati.
Practical TOar "Work '
"The people of Hawaii can be made
much more eelf-tupporting in the mat
ter of food supply than they are, and
can become nearer Independent of out
tide sources for food than the' major
ity of people ace aware. The purpose
of the Fair Is to' demonstrate this;
henee it will accomplish a war work
Of greatest practical benefit to the Na
tion. "Thia Fair, the first of its kind
ever. held In the Territory, will bring
together consumer and producer, show
ing the consumer the great variety and
good,., quality of . foodstuff , and manu
f aetured niateTiani produced' locally;
inaucinir aim xo out taese in nrerer-
eaee t'o imported goods; expanding the
home market for the Island grower,
henee encouraging him to strive for
"The greatest proportion of the con
suming nubile in Hawaii is centered
in Honolulu, with its civilian popula
tion of more than 80,000 and military
population of approximately 10,000, the
tatter practically non-producers and
ready to ' any all its foodstuffs from
Island growers jFoodituff-importation
last year amounted to many million
tons, and 'diminution of imports is not
at large at it should he. Growers must
be educated to the home-market oppor
tunity if production ia to be stimulated
Our Livestock Inferior
"Wleat aubetitutee and meat-aub-stltutet
such as corn, rice, potatoes and
a variety of vegetables. In which we
should be self-sufficient, are imported
today in large tonnage from the main
land. Improved agriculture and knowl
edge of the market should correct this
condition.. The ..fertility of Hawaii's
soil is second to none. Our livestock
is free of the diseases that prey on that
induatry elsewhere, yet in general our
horses, hogs and cattle are stunted in
comparison 'witti those raised in the
state. Lacking the educational fea
ture and healthy stimulus of open
competition which livestock fairs would
have given, our grower in the main
have been content to travel in an ever
deepening rut, breeding scrawny stock
and weakening their strain instead of
"W!e havbeen informed that Great
Britain and France, in stress of war,
place sueh value on the practical bene
fits of agricultural, livestock and com
mercial fairs that they officially encour
age them, even to the extent of grant
ing subsidies to guarantee the expense
of the exhibitions.
"Our Fair waa authorized by the
territorial legislature of 1917 and will
be self supporting.
"We do not seejc financial assistance
of the United States' government but
do need its moral support, to allay
doubts of some loyal citizens here who
ia all sincerity are inclined to think
that en agricultural and livestock ex
hibition will not Serve a practical war
time purpose. We believe the Presi
dent, or any of his advisors to whom
the subject is presented, will give the
f roject unqualified endorsement when
he situation and our purposes are made
thoroughly plain to them."
