The Week In the War
T REPARATIONS, extensive and

jen frrirtti Such NeiifrkWftrtf fata? hive incurred
have ml een ott tiiajor ' iiwpjrtanrj ' and have
V-': largely been local in their , nature. . These have
generally resulted t the advantage of the Allies.
V v.: -All tlieretwrts i)f'.tM AUie3 ohservers go to in-
; dicate thv j nemy has spent the, past week in vast
preparatory 'vork, in the massing of fresh re
serves, bri'nt.ng up new forces, rearranging the
, ": old, and is about ready to launch -fresh attacks on
f t scale commensurate with those of the earliest
"days of the drive. It was estimated on Saturday
; , that the German forces are ma'de up of 140 army
divisions. At the present time each army division
; is composed of from 12.000 to 14.000 whichwould
- make such force somewhere between 1.700,000
and 2,000,000. It is said that eighty-two divisions
... occupy the forward positions and fifty-eight are
supporting them, massed and ready to be thrown
- into the -engagement as occasion may require.
.. . What the reserve force of the Allies on the
Western front is at present has hot been told and
Is a subject of much .discussion. It was. in part.
for his criticism of the handling of this reserve
. army by. General Foch and the supreme war coun
cil that General Maurice was disciplined. Me
yotid doubt the force is large. Whether it will
balance that of the enemy remains to be seen.
",; It was the opinion of the Allied staffs on Friday
, that the enemy was taking full advantage of the
' opportunity that had presented" itself to strength
'. en its forces and the longer if was able to wait
- the nearer it approached a status like that at the
' . beginning of the drive but that it could not afford
' to waiflong because of the increasing number of
Americans who were gettingvithin a zone where
they can be effectually used.
In the Italian war theater the Italians appear to
have forestalled the Austrians and to have struck
a hard and successful blow. Since then they have
i' repulsed each and every" effort of the Austrians
to recover lost ground and inflicted heavy losses
; while doing this.
; To the American point of view interest centered
to a considerable extent around a despatch from
,' : Otawa and the subsequent denials of the correct
ness of its news. The telegram said the American
; ;i forces were not to be used until Americans were
over seas in more formidable numbers. It would
appear that the meaning of the despatch was that
be American force would not be used as a sepa
rate integer until that time. It seems that the
American forces are to be used, as they have been
w.JTcently in connection with .the .British and the
rench. They are to hold certain sectors, as they
, Tav been doing, and are to be given more and
V more sectors as they are ready to take them over.
'. This u substantiated by the report published this
.') morning -that '.the Americans are now holding a
Ionger(part of the. Western front than do the Bel
. gians and now are ranking third in that respect,
next to ht British and the French. New forces
are completing their training in new positions and
"l ft is evident that the hurry call of the Allies is be
ing heeded as much as possible. The United States
now appears to be getting to a stage where it will
, soon be able to "hit its pace." It is beginning to
play a fitting part in actual military participation,

Thrift and Investment
THIS morning begins Thrift Week in Hono
lulu, the obiect of the campaign being to se-
cpic pledges from as many as will promise to
' avoid "the purchase of. non-essentials, to exercise
a proper war econyihy and to turn over whatever
. , ; money he has saved to the government as a loan.
The loan, is secured by War Savings Stamps,
drawing interest at the rate of one cent a month
on every $4.12 invested.
V . The campaign is on a business proposition. It
is simply to urge the application of the ordinary
' rules of saving and investing, with the added in
ducement ahat the investment is in,.a highclass
government security and that the money so in
; . vested will be used to make not only the United
States more secure in its freedom but to extend
such freedom to the whole world.
The Wr Savings Stamp proposition has been
. SO devised that none is prevented from participat
: jng in this government loan, as investments of as
little as twenty-five cents may be made. It has
also' been made so that a total of one thousand
'. dollars may be put into these high interest bearing
' Baby Bonds by any individual. From the stand
, point of the small investor there are other most
attractive features. Subscriptions may be made
for any amount up to the thousand dollar maxi-
mum and the payments made at any time before
, the eiid of the year and in any amounts most con
venient, from twenty-five cents up. For each
v ; twenty-five cents a government Receipt in the
';.- form of a Thrift Stamp i given, exchangeable for
War Savings Stamps of an ultimate value of five
dollars each at the rate of sixteen Thrift Stamps
and accrued interest plus twelve cents.
' A five dollar W. S. S this month costs $4 Id.
..'It increases in value at the rate of one cent a
. month and can be cashed'at any time. From a
' ' strictly business point t view there is no invest
.: ment today so safe as one m War Savings Stamps
Hawaii is "over the top"" on every fund except
.. the W. S. S. fund. In that wc are far behind our
. . quota, probably because the general public has
mistaken the scheme as one exclusively for chil
dren. It is to be hoped that this error is now cor
:. rected and that the stamp purchases by those able
to tave and invest will materially jncrease.
Shingle's Homes tead Bill
W E believe that every fairminded person will
be able to endorse the principle of the pro
posed act introduced into the senate yesterday by
Senator Shingle and entitled "An Act to provide
for the cultivation of certain leased government
lands after the leases thereon shall have expired".
Whether the bill as drafted covers all the ground
is a matter for experts in phraseology to determine.
The bill, published in full elsewhere in this
issue, provides primarily for the continuity of cul
tivation of all sugar lands, permitting the plan
tations to continue with the planting of lands on
which the leases are expiring and guaranteeing the
planters the return of all inoheySadviahclrupon
the lands should they be homesteaded. Should the
lands not be homesteaded a rather remote con
tingency, under the circumstances the planters
and the government will share in the net profits
of the crop on a fifty-fifty basis. The bill safe
guards the right of the citizens to enter upon such
lands as homesteaders, the land so taken up being
subject to a lien to the amount of cash advanced
by the planter up to the date of the homestead
Where the bill seems to failSs that there is no
provision to bind the planter into entering upon a
cultivating agreement with the homesteader tak
ing up such cultivated land, should the homestead
er desire such. The bill might well provide that
in return for the right of the plantation to con
tinue the. cultivation of leased land subsequent to
the expiration of the lease the plantation shall be
obliged to enter into a fair planting agreement
with the homesteader. Otherwise it might be that
homesteaders would be held back from applying
ior such land through fear of plantation reprisal.
It would seem that some such a provision is rather
vital to the success of the measure if it becomes
Of course, the propriety of enacting any land
legislation at this time comes into question. There
is also to be considered the question of whether
the legislature has the legal right to provide for
liens on public land prior to its being homesteaded.
inasmuch as the public lands are in the hands of
the secretary of the interior and not the territorial
administration. This objection could be met, if it
.'hould prove a valid one, by providing for con
gressional action on the bill before it shall become
i perative. Then, when Secretary Lane has gone
into the matter personally, he could urge it before
congress, if he so saw fit, as an emergency meas-
This would take a little time, but in a matter
of this importance it is better to be a little slow
and be right than to be in a great rush and be

If man power is to be the deciding factor in the

are ten million men in America ready to throw
themselves into the struggle. There are also India

Kapiolani Park Looks Like New
City Subdivision of Huge

Usual Sunday' erowffs Vho visited
Kapiolani Park yesterday found that
recreation ground beginning to look
like a new city subdivision of war
factories in the building. Huge
keletonlike structures of frame have
sprung up almost over night there,
covering asost of the ground in the
vieinity of the grandstand and extend
ing from that point down to the lower
end of the track. ,
In fact, it ia to bo a city, the
Territorial Fair city, and when com
pleted Will include several structures
in additfon to those which are nearly
finished bow. Nine edifices now await
the flooring and roofing, and this work
will be undertaken this morning.
These are forty feet in width and vary
in length from fifty to three hundred
and t?enty feet. Four, on the Diamond
Head side of the grandstand are to
accommodate the mercantile diaplays
which will be exhibited by Island
business liouseM. v
A croup of five on the townward
aide of the Park ' public tennis court
will shelter, the agricultural, flower, art,
Hawaiian crafts, food conservation,
public schools and Army and Navy ex
hibits. Another building will be erect
ed here to increase the capacity of the
group. This huM been found necessary
by the demands of the exhibitors for
more room, an indication that the Fair
ia going to assume tremendous proportions.
In all, it is estimutod, there will bo
nearly SO.OOtl square feet under cover
not including the automobile show or
the pena and paddocks which will be
built for the iivestock, poultry, dogs,
oats and uiniiHCmont oncesjiions.
Most of the structures now. erected
probably will be ready for exhibits
by next 8aturdav, though it ia unlikely
any except the conuneYeial exhibitors
will need to undertake installation of
dixplays quite so early. The Territorial
Fair ' will open its gates three weeks
from tomorrow noon.
Most of the Fair structures are to
be skeletonized edifices, with roofs of
tarpaulin. There will be many tents,
but the main show will bo in the big
buildings, which will give wonderful
opportunities fur display.
The interest taken in the June
demonstration by merchants is indi
cated by the fuct tlmt practically the
entire space in the four huge buildings
of that Hcctjim Iium been spoken for.
Most of these arc larger than was

Kvldently the Chinese, the enstoms
men sav, believed they were (being
shadowed and they are charged -with
attempting to take the twelve tins of
opium from the fish market to a point
near a joss hoiiso on Kukui fUreet. In
their alleged attempt to do so, , the
Chinese are said to have wrapped the
opium in old rtewspnpers, with two' or
three pieces of ti leaves Rtickiflg out,
so it loolied very much like all the
packages carried by' early morning vis

The customs men ndmit the Chinese
were correct in their guess that they
were being watched, and wort they
started to leave the flshmnrket with
the big package. Inspector Oilbert Mc
Nieoll was notified. He overtook the
Chinese and had them booked for in

had a bag containing flfiM when ap

LONDON, May 7 (Associated
Press) In London horses are oying al
most aa fast aa flies. The principal
causes are overwork and semi-starvation,
but cruelty helps a great real. The
whole problem of poor Dobbin has ex
cited so much pity that the government
is being asked to increase the ration
for the horse and bIho to help improve
his living conditions.
"The treatment and conditions of
the wretched and inferior horses now
left in this country make one of the
most territue phases of the war, says j
Francis A. Cox, secretary of the Nation
al Equine Defence league. Those left
were handed over to the control of ir
reaponaible boys entirely nestitute of
any knowledge of horses. The remedy
is simple. If horses' food must be ra
tioned, their output of work should
similarly be rationed, and by the same
authority the police."
The government is planning to ration
horsijs used for farming purposes at ten
pounds of feeding stuffs a day.
