Banana growing may be a highly
proAtable industry In the Hawaiian 11
uiids nnil its seoe may be largely in
e reused, an was said in the letter of W.
A. Anderson to The Advertiser. For
Iher, thin can he don when banana
sell for a cent a pound,' aa la ahowa by
Imm furnished by W. II. Hongs Sr.,
who linn leeo Riving the question eon
tiidenihlo stndy.
An were of land will grow and sup
rxirt I'MNl banana trees, the figures giv
en f.how. One bunch of fruit to each
tree. Die average bunch weighing forty
pounds, would give a production for the
aere of 40,000 pounds which at one rent
a Hiiind would yield $400 aa aere. It
in pointed out thai now the grower are
reeeivlng from the snippers left man a
eent a pound, the prevent price rang
ing from 4"H eenti to 05 eanta a bunch.
They do nut buy a the marketing divi
aioo. It in estimated that bananas eost to
grow and to market, oa an average, half
a cent a pound. Oost per aere ia thus
2(Hi and proflt is 3H) aa aere each
year.
In California the average yield of
grapea i 'five tons to the acre, the rout
of growing and marketing ia $10 a ton,
the grower reealvea $20 a ton at the
winery and hia proflt ia $10 a ton or
$40 aa acre an compared with a profit
of 3'M) an aere for bananaa in Ha
wall.
'Haying sixty Ave eent a bunch for
large bunehea of bananaa,. delivered at
the ider, the shipper muat alao pay
, 'frefght and as to what he reeoive at
present, delivered ia San aoeisoo, the
ngaraa have not baea secured. It ia to
be .presumed the price is well over orig
inal eoat and freight. ' Ob March 20
the quotation, on Hawaiian banana ia
tho San Franeisro market waa $2 to
$3 $ bunch. The d iff ere nee between
the price" paid here to the growers and
the market priee in San Francisco in
chide the profit of the shipper, freight

and the profit of the wholesaler there.

You have sett lei I the question of sup

patriotic drive of the "Bat a Banana

1. That they send a bunrh of ba
nanaa to each person that paid for their
banana and have not received them.

4. The Food CommiKsinu expects

Members of p -
"Assemblies of God"
Claim Exemption
Four Haoles and One Chinese
Say Their' Religious Principles
Forbid Them. To Kill But Their
Plea Is Turned Down Cold By
Exemption Board
Four haoles and on Chinese, all of
draft age, appealed to the selective
draft offerer of tha Territory to claim
exemption from military service on the
ground that they were members of a
religious organisation known a "The
At-sembllcH of flod," and could not
take up m urn to kill or he lulled, or
participate in any ruction where hu
man life a nt stake. Their request
turned down cold yesterdav hv
Cspt. II. Gooding Field, seletH veil raft
officer.
Accompanying their appeal, which
reached Captain Field, through Local
Board No. I of Honolulu, waa a pamph
let which set forth the aims and prin
ciples of the organisation, which has
its headquarters , at 2945 Madison
Street, St. Louis, Missouri, to which
was also attached a letter signed by
Htnnley Fredsham. secretary, and ion
pressed with the organisation's great
seal.
Affirm Loyalty
In nnking for exemption from mili
tary service, H. Johna, who heads the
list, nnd the four others, signed a let
ter stating that while they reeognired
"human government aa of divine or
dination. and affirming our unswerv
ing loyalty to the government of the
I'nited Ktatea," they, nevertheless,
were constrained to define their poni
tion with reference to taking human
life.
While purposing to fulfill all the ob
ligations of local eiticeaship, they felt,
nevertheless, they most declare that
they could not eonaistently participate
in war which, they said, involved the
actual destructioa- of life, on the
ground that such destruction waa con
trury to the teachings and the rule of
(lod. which was the nolo basis of their
faith.
It waa furthermore claimed by the
quintet that thin system of fundament
al truths, as they expressed it, waa not
intended as a creed, nor aa a passing
of fellowship among Christians, but
"only as a basis of unity of ministry
alone, towit, that wo all apeak the
nr thing," and then asked Captain
Field to look up, Corinthians lat and
Arts 11:42.
soma Big Words
The quintef entered into $ lengthy
argument, adding that the human
phraseology in auoh a statement a
they were making is not intended to
set forth the troth of auch phrases,
bur is held to be essential to the full
eon pel meaning. .
Captain Field was rather nonplussed
at the high aoundin phrases, but acted
promptly in denying the appeal, and
they will have to stand their chances
ia the lottery of the selection of
draftees to rioa the khaki of the army.
Tha question before the selective
.Ira ft officials was whether these per
sons came within the interpretation of
Section 79 of the Selective Service
regulations, rule i, which permits the
exemption of any registrant who is
found to be a member of any well
reoognixed religion sect or organixa
tion existing on May 9. 1917, and
whose existing creed or principles for
hid members from participating In war
in any form.

Late Details of Proposed Scrap
Between Jess Willard and
Fred Fulton
CHICAGO, March 25 Final articles
to close all the details of a heavy
weight match between Jess Willard
and Fred Fulton of Rochester, Minne
sota, challenger, were signed her to
day. .'
Willard, it was revealed in tha new
t of articles, is to receive seventy-five-
percent of the net proflt made by
Colonel J. C. Miller, promoter, while
Fulton is to be paid a flat sum of 20(-
000 for his work, win or lose.
The agreement stipulates that Mil
er shall have the right to sell or trans
fer the bout to such person or persons
a he may see fit.
"If I am successful in selling the
match for 100,000 or more In faet,
aay amount I will have to pay Fulton
2u.tmo and .give Willard 78 per eent
of the balance," Miller explained. "I
,nay not be able to sell the match. If
1 don't, 1 shall promote it myself.
There' one thing certain Willard and
ulton will fight some place for the
championship next Fourth of July."
According to this arrangement, if
rhe unlit should draw 100,000, the
ighters aud promoter would share aa
follows:
Willard $80,000 .
Promoter 80,000
Fulton 20,000
Of course, the higher the puree, goes
or the receipts, for that matter
'he bigger percentage for the cham
pion and Miller, who is handling the
ontcst. It virtually amounts to thia,
th.it Willard is practically tha pro
moter, paying Miller u percentage for
lis work in connection with the bout.
The articles stipulate that Willard
(ml Fulton shall establish training
.iiarters in the vicinity of the city in
which the contest is to be staged .for
,t leust three weeks prior to th bout.
The number of rounds to be fought
i ill depend entirely on the laws of the
state.

ROMAN
CIIA1IST0
BE SEEN NEXT JUNE
Ancient Race Will Be Revived At
Territorial Fair At Ka-
piolan! Park
On of the big sensations at the Ter
ritorial Fair in Jane will be a real Ro
man chariot race, staged by horsemen
from on of the organisations of the
army. The military athletic committee
has definitely determined to include
this spectacular event in the program
of sports. It will be the first time it
ever has been seen in Hawaii, and, in
the form they promise to present it,
I tne cnartot race will be oue of the
tiig hit of .the entire program nt the
1 Kspiolani Park track.
Clad in flowing, bright rolled, Roman
costumes aad standing np in their pre
Icarions, swaying, two-wheeled vehicles,
I the charioteers will drive their horse
I like mad around the course, each hand
j ling three or four animals. The race
' wilt tn (or a Distance or hair a mite
! Nerve Needed By Drivers
It takes a horseman to handle four
animals, and particularly so when the
I steeds are driven four abreast. Add to
l this the frenry of excitement aroused
.by the race, the terrific speed attained,
.and the danger nnd diffleultv of stand
jlng upright in the careening chariots
as they whirl along behind the running
i horses, and one conceives thai the driv
j ers must posses race knack and nerve
ns well as driving ability.
As the big circus stage Koman chnr
lot races on the mainland, within the
lose confines of a three-ring tent, it
is perhaps the most thrilling feature of
the circus program. As the Army pro
poses to give it, with a real track tc
run on, where the horses enn attain fol
speed and with a good prize awaiting
th fastest ream and cleverest chariot
eer, it should be a apeetnele worth go
ing a long wav to see.
Will Train at Once !
The men and horses are being select
ed now and they will start training at
once. .The fleetest -footed horse in the
army will lie used and the question of
selection and training is a serious one.
for the reason that at present there is
hardly a real running animal in the en
tire lot that has been broken to driving.
In the race they must not. only be
driven, but must be so well trained
that practically no harness will be re
