The Wccfc In the
;, O PF.CX'LATION1 on the cause
' O Germany in resuming its offensive continues
rife. For more than a week the renewal has been
almost momentarily expected and days ao it was
reiirtc1 that the enemy's preparation (or the
launching of its next phase of offensive was com
plete. Yet the attack still hangs in abeyance.
The reason assigned by Germany for the lull in
hostilities is not the one which is offered by the
Allies and it is hardly likely that if the latter rea
son is the correct one that Germany would admit
it. Germany says the weather is inclement and
prevents extensive military operations. The Al
lies assert that they have the control of the air
and such control is a restraint upon the Teutons.
It is claimed by the Allies that their airmen are
preventing the enemy scouts from making the ob
servations necessary to conduct an important as
sault and at the same time are able o keep thor
oughly posted on Teuton movements and by
means of air raids are hampering the concentra
tion of forces. When the weather is inclement,
- when clouds are lowering and rain is falling, the
usefulness of the air scouts and air fighters is
minimized. It is here that one Rees the reasons
offered by the beltgcrents are not readily harmo
nized. Under these circumstances the German ex
planation would seem to be an excuse and not a
, It has been pointed out that while, up to a cer
tain point, the enemy a gaining strength
through delay, greatly increasing its man and gun
power, there was a point beyond which it could
' rot go without danger. While the enemy force
may strengthen with delay, so also do the Allies
.for United States forces are reported to be en
tering the fighting rone in quantities which would
offset Teuton increases and at the same time Ital
ian forces are being added to forces that prevent
advances upon the Channel points and other sa-
. , licnts.
W hile Germany has held back the Rritish and
the French have shown a more aggressive spirit
and the enemy positions have been weakened
lather than strengthened by such engagements as
', have occured in the past week. Military observers
. fay that the Germans are by no means so strong
' as they were last March.when they started their
great offensive. It is pointed out that at a number
of points'' their positions are Such as to lay them
V open to flanking movements. t
A few days .since despatches said that American
army observers expressed the greatest confidence
; in final results from the next phase of the great
tattle on the Western front. They believed that
in it the Teutons would expend
for an, offensive and some of them even went so
far as to forecast an end to the war within a year.
With such expressions from army Officers is
contrasted the tremendous increase in the plans
and preparations of the United States for partici
; iati6n. The budget which the war department
has presented in asking for an addition of seven
, and a quarter billions of dollars to its already
enormous estimates raises proposed expenditures
to a figure which the world has never before con
templated. And the United States is fighting the
( enemy not with men and guns on land alone but
on the sea as well, with its navy and with its mer
chant fleets. The expenditures contemplated for
" ship building run into figures that were beyond
conception in the days before the war.
If Germany can be held a little longer; if the
United States can be accorded the time and the
.opportunity to carry out its program, it would
.appear that the combination of the Allies and this
Country must prove irresistible.
Thus it is that the Allies are in a better position
..'to play the waiting game than are the Central
.'. powers and so the observers are certain that Ger
many cannot merely hold its ground, that it must
. advance and in case of a failure to achieve great
results, must fall back to new positions which
would be less open to the strong counter which, in
. time, the Allies will certainly make.

stride "in ship building and if .'these" report Wall
that they imply there is much , cause for gratifi
cation. It is none the less evident that ships are the
paramount need of the nation', hot" only ships' t6
carry our men overseas and to keep them supplied
with food and munitions and .''other supplies, but
ships to move food for the citizens of this country
and for their allies, food that is necessary to supply
their absolute needs, ships to keep going he im
portant and the essential industries of the nation
Here in Hawaii this is being brought home to
us clearly and strikingly as the sugar that is
ground in the mills of the Territory piles up in
store houses faster than it can he? moved. Mean
time there is need of this sugar elsewhere and that
need will grow more acute as the canning season
cn the mainland progresses. ", ..;
On this need of shipping Facts About Sugar in
a recent issue observes :
Attention has been called frequently to the facf
that the distribution of sugar Supplies, has become;
mainly a question of ships.. As the demands for
men and material to maintain the battle line in
creases nd they will continue" to 'grow' until 'a
decisive issue of the conflict is in sight it becomes
evident that more and more stringent restrictions
must be imposed upon the movement of materials
that are" hot absolutely war essentials.
Thus it appears probable that Americans may
again be called upon to restrict their use of sugar.
not because sugar is unnecessary, nor; because of
any lack of supplies in the hands of producers, but
solely in order to provide every possible cubic foot
of cargo space for the requirements of our grow
ing army in France. What applies to sugar will
spply equally to many other useful and important
To every careful student of conditions it is plain
that the successful prosecution of the war itself
has become a question of ships. There is no lack
of man-power in the United States, but since every
soldier in France requires four to five deadweight
tons of shipping to keep him in. supplies the extent
to which man-power can be made available is
limited directly by the amount of shipping that
can be put into operation.
It is unfortunate that the impression should
have been created that the elaborate ptogram of
shipbuilding adopted by the Government has made
private effort along this line unnecessary and even
unwelcome. - Even though -the, pjans of the emer
gency., fleet corporation' ajfc'fkViil'ihcgh, with
out delay; the resulting jtcwoage will hot be -sufficient
to provide for both" military and commercial
requirements. Every national industry should
study methods by which it can quickly aid in in
creasing the size of our merchant marine.
Such assistance can be rendered in various ways
aside from the undertaking of actual construction.
The investment of funds in construction plants,
the training of recruits for the army of sailors re
quired to man the growing fleet, the supply of ma
terials for the housing and feeding of ship workers,
that will contribute to the desired
result. A conference to determine ways "and means
industries can aid in furthering
lhe progress of ship construction and operation is
to be held in New York. Similar meetings should
be held in every part of the country, at inland

Every industry that contributes capital, labor,
material, or facilities to the expansion of American

The sinking of the Moldavia is an incident for
which the public should be prepared and it must
be prepared to receive similar news at any time.
Thus far, considering the great number of troops
that have been moved from America to Europe
we have been most fortunate. The losses on the
i wo troopships that have been sunk by enemy f or
pedoes of the Huns have not been large in pro
I ortion to the number of men that were on those
vessels and in proportion to the hundreds of thou
sands who haye been successfully moved they

volumes of praise for the navies of this country

WATER TENDER ASKS
Former Engine Room Man On Ki
lauea Alleges He Was Badly
Injured In Explosion
A suit in admiralty for $10,000 dam
ages was filed in the federaleourt yes
terday againHt the steamer 'Kf lauea
br James Kinir, formerly a watertend-
er on the vessel, who alleges he was
badly burned hv an explosion in the
boiler tubes which he .was learning
while the steamer was lyifig off the port
of 'Honaapo, Kona, AlaNh Z4.
' Tart of the claim for damages is
based on the assertion that the water
tender did not have proper medical at
tendanee after the aeeldent and that
instead of being transferred to the
nearest hospital at Hilo, he was kept
aboard the Kilauea and not takea to a
hospital until she returned here aev
era! daya later.
The libel writ asserts that King was
instructed to blow out the tubes of the
boiler with the steam bose and while
obeying the orders of the first assistant
engineer of the steamer the explo
sion took place. He alleges that he
waa badly burned by the flames wnen
the doors encircling the boilers were
blown open, anil from the names caused
br the gas in the tubes Igniting.
The libellant avs he was struck with
great force and violence In and about
his face, head, ears, eyes, neek, arms
and bands, and that he became uneon
scioue, Be savs no physician was rail
ed to attend him until two and a half
hours . efier the accident, - and (then
nothing effective was done to sere him
from the (Treat pain which he suffered.
For expense and loss it time caused
by his injuries he asks to be given $500
in addition to the $10,000 damages.

Raise In Freight
By Rail May
Hit Sugar Industry
Receipts of Heavy Goods From
Eastern States Or Middle West
Will Also Be More Costly To
Consumers, Autos Especially
Announcement of an increase of twenty-five
percent la railroad freight rates
by the director geaeral of the railroads,
which was told in Associated Preas des
patches received yesterday, will be of
special interest to the sugar industry of
Hawaii if much of this year 's crop goes
testae Efcstera refiners. Where the
angar will go la still ft - matter " or
much uncertainty. '
Ordinarily about a fourth of the su
gar crop tgoes to the Atlantic Coast
refineries. According to reports that
were received here a short time since,
the bulk of the sugar from the Islands
was to be refined on the I aeiflo Coast,
part in the States and a much smaller
part in Canada. Then' came a flivert-
jug vi sugar iniiu noai ,u jcbb iiiu
celculatiops were upset. The only ad
vices on this subject that local shippers
of sugar have is that the Coast refin
eries will handle as large a part of
the Hawaiian output as is possible.
If the usual percentage of the erop
went -East it would mean that about
100,000 tons would still have to move
across the continent. Owing to the ship
shortnge all sugar that does go East
moves by train and already the freight
rates from here to New York and Phil
adelphia reduced profits materially so
that the further increase will be, if ship
ments are made, a hardship on the .in
dustry. All goods emanating from other points
in the States than the Pacific Coast and
coming to Honolulu will feel the effect
of this increases With automobiles and
machinery, construction steel and other
heavy goods the additional freight
charges will undoubtedly go on the
prices charged here. With clothing,
shoes, canned goods and foodstuffs the
matter of freight is not so important
for a single article is not heavy and
the increased cost will be only fraction
al of a cent usually. It is not improb
able, however, that the general buying
public in this Territory will feel some
effect from the freight raises.

NOT GO TO COAST
Matson Agent Says Those Who
Leave For Mainland Likely
To Have Trouble Returning
Recommendation hart been made by.
ChArles Drew, tlw . Matson shipping
agent, in a communication- addressed
to IL W. Kinney, superintendent of
public instruction, that all school teach
ers be urged to remain in Hawaii this
summer and forego vacation trips to
the mainland,; which many- of them
I(ylaeyueup& aoorrae ui panntuignr rr-
rirs m tub j noinc j iu rrnj u given
for the ! recommendation by the ship
ping agent. Not only will there be
difficulty i the teachers securing pas
sage to the Coast, but very likely sinii
Ur or greater trouble will be experi
enced in arranging for the. return voy
age of those who are to come back for
U next term of school, it is pointed
y Superintendent Kinney is asked to
impress upon the teachers that patriot
ism should induce them to not leave
the Islands at all, considering the fact
that all the accommodations on the
steamers are needed for urgent pur
poses. Shortage Is Explained'
Keferent-e is made to the fact that
many steamers have been taker! over
by the United States j;ovcrnn'cnt and
that more still may be commandeered.
An explanation ia included in the letter
to the school superintendent of h(tw
it was first thought that tlio suspension
of the coastwise Hhipping law would
help out a (reat ileal on account of
p:uuengdr being alliweil to travel on
the vessels of the Toyo Kisen Kaiahn
whieh touch at Honolulu.
The writer states that this has prov
ed too sanguiiie a hope ns it is found
that the Japanese steamers are nearly
always crowded because the big liners
of the Knipress Company which ply
between the American mainland and
Japan, following the Oreat Circle route,
have been taken by the government.
This throws the burden of carrying
passengers for the Orient onto the
Toyo Kisen Kaisba vessels, ami cuts
down the berths available for pasHen
gers wishing to leave on theae ships
at Honolulu, it is said. Iu fact it is
stated nt times there are no vacant
berths on the Japanese boats which
are making their way to the Orient,
via Honolulu, and that nt all times
there ia room for but few passengers
for this port.
