RICE VS. SUGAR
UNK'S ISSUE IF
HE ENTERS RACE
But McCandless Is Beginning To
Wonder If Maybe Some Other
Democrat Mightn't Be Better
TO RUN OR NOTTTO RUN:
THAT'S THE QUESTION
Accuses Plantation Interests of
. Trying To Throttle Rice Indus
try To Get Chinese Laborers
"Link" McCandless, who ha the
habit Of running for dolegate to eon
(re on the Democratic ticket, will
reason a rice jilRtform thin year if
ha rana at all. A statement to thin of-
feet Was made by Mr. McCandless yes- J
But "Link" may not run. Whether
or not be will he says he hns not yet
decided. He is beginning to wonder
it it ia not just barely posishle that
then ia nome other man in the Demo
cratic party who might mnke a pns
aible, eaadidato, who might even run
faster and farther than himself, not
withtsanding all hi riperience. Truly,
"tha world do move."
Mr. McCandless was asked yester
day wbether or not he was ready yet
to announce hi candidacy. He wasn 't.
Ho waa still waiting, with one ear
creased closely to the ground, he inti
mated, to uncertain from tha leaders '
of tha Democratic precinct clubs
whether or not there is a loud and in- '
aiatent demand that he once more enter
fba lists. '
1 But even if such a demand should be
voiced in stentorian tones, the hitherto
perpetual candidate, whose aspirations ;
have, up to this year bloomed biennielly
with all their pristine freshness, said
ha wasn't at all sure he wonld heed the
Macedonian call. He might, and then
gain he might not.
Not Scared, Anyway i
, But if he doesn't run, It will not be
because he is afraid to go before the
people on his rice record. He wanted I
that made perfectly plain. I
' Indeed, he intimated that should he
laaneh an offensive once more on the
oft fought over political battle field,
soma .of the shots he would fire at his
eneaaiea would be in the nature of rice
. Bice versus sugar will be the cam
paign issue npon which the veteran
enndidate will make the race if he ,
makes it. I
Aaked if it was fear of attack be-
eanae of hia difference with the food
commission over the question of rice '
prieee that might keep him out of the j
race, "Link" waxed eloquent. A rice .
platform, he asserted, migth be just
as good ia Hawaii aa one sweetened
Referring to the suggestion by "By
ataader" in The Advertiser yesterday
that a loeal aongsmith was grinding
ont a campaign song for McCandless
entitled "1 didn't raisp my rice to feed
the soldiers," "Link" said that was
ot entierly correct. He didn't raise
hia .rice, he said, to fatten plantation
laborers at three dollars a bag less
than they are willing to pay for Japan
"I am not afraid to go before the
people and explain my stand on the rice
question," said the Land Locked ono.
BUtDM Sugar Men
All the trouble over rice is blamed
by '.'Link" under the " iniquitous sugar
men''.. And ho drugs tho skeleton
right -ont of the eleset and rnttlcs its
dry bones in the full light of noonday.
The sugar men. he say, always have
tried to kill the rice industry in Ha
waii. Now they are trying to do it
legally while they have the opportunity.
This ia the way Link states the
problem and works out the answer:
"The best cane cutters in the Is
lands are Chinese.
"Nearly all the Chinese latmrers arc
engaged in cultivating rice.
"Therefore, if the rice industry were
killed off, the Chinese would have to
work on the sugar plant it inns, thereby
alleviating the present llor shortage.
"y. K. D."
Defend His Actions
McCandless defends his act urn in
selling Hawaiian rice nbovc the price
filed by the food administration w ith
ronniderH lile heat. lie says he was
complying with the request "I the food
commission and Belling Ins rice for
eight dollars a bug. three dollars less
than the price Japanese rice as bring
ing ;n the open market. I hen, he
says, California rice was imported and
sold on the market for $I0.U5 a bag.
It was after this that he began
marketing Hawaiian rice for the same
figure, regardless of the food com
mission rules, which eventually led to
his arrest on a charge of profiteering,
and the question of the constitutional
ity of the food commission 's powers
carried up to the supreme court, where
it now awaits a decision.
He says it was "Hunnish" for tha
food commission to try to dictate the
price of Hawaiian rice, when no con
trol was assumed of the price of im
ported rice. McCandless nsks the ques
tion, "What would the sugar men have
done!" if they had been ordered by
Hoover to sell their sugar at several
dollars less a ton than the sugar of
the Philippines, because of the differ
enae' in ,thfl; freight rates between Ho
nolulu and the mainland, and those
between" Manila and the mainland.
McCandless says the principle in the
same and that Hawaiian rice growers
sltoilM be allowed to take advaiitni;--of
the open market price in compcti
tion with Japanese rire, the same n
the Hawaii sugar men are given Hi
ad vantage over the Philippine sugar

Already surmises as to the probable

Before the contest it ws learned Ptr

Official of the station asserted Ferry
had not agreed fo meet Xahanamoku
In the aentury, although the Hawaiian
conceded a point by swimming McGH

open, and any contestant could swim
or withdraw, as he ehoae.

Kahanamoku therefore attempted to
break bis own world 's record of :5.t
for 100 yards ' and continue to 100
meters in an effort to lower his world's
mark oY 1:01 1-5.
The other starters were Clarence
Lane of Hawaii, Walter Earle and Her
bert Topp of the C. A. A. After the
Hawaiian had gone through their
usual limbering up they were sent
twenty yards. The foul compelled
Duke to break his stroke, and before
he could get nnder way again Lane

Scenting the danger of defeat, Duke
bent to his task. By nse of long,
powerful strokes and strong kicks he
again went to the front, but waa im
, medially .hallenged by his teammate,
Lane. In the meantime Topp and Earle
had been outdistanced by three yards.
As Duke and Lane neared the fin
ish Kahanamoku gained and went un
der the line winner by a scant yard.
He held this lead by the same margin
when he passed under the wire which
denoted the finish of the 100 meters.
The five timers gave his intermediate
time for the lfX) yards at tS0 2-5, and
for the 1000 meters, 1:03 4 8. Neither

The other race of particular Interest
to the lsrge gathering was the 440
yard event, in which Buddy Wallen
of Great Lakes, who established a new
world's straights way record of 6:25

against Harold Kruger of Hawaii. ,
The field of sevon starters hit the
