FROM tliq mainland,, through official sources,
come words that should put Honolulu up on
its toes in anticipation of the developments to fol
low the signing of the peace treaty, while we are
given every assurance from Mr. Kossetter and
Others that the federal government is prepared to
help us get ready even before the conclusion of
; the war.
, . There arc indications in every official report
dealing with the trade and commerce oi the Pacific,
that Honolulu is to come into ner own and be I
made one of the great '-hipping centers of the
World's greatest ocean.
There are indications that this is to be, after
; the war. an even greater naval station and a
gTcatcr garrison city than the most sanguine had
hoped for.
Things that every other city will be forced to
fight fur in tierce competition are going to be
.-handed to us. if we only show our inclination and
' desi" get them and evidence our ability prop-
erly utilize and develop our opportunities.
Ain! .iw are we moving to show that we appre
. ciate even a small degree the great promises
' of the near future ?
Within a few days the lists of nominations for
the party primaries for the choosing of candidates
for our local legislature will close. The legisla
ture to be elected will be, in all probability, the
"peace legislature", the territorial governing body
at the most crucial time in all Hawaii's history,
the law-making assembly and the appropriating
power at a time when Hawaii must be efficiently
prepared to grasp great things.
' At this time, when the present calls for the
quality of sane retrenchment in our legislators,
with businesslike competency in our administra-
tion, and when the immediate future demands also
that our representatives and senators be men of
" broad vision, capable of planning for big things,
we look in vain through the suggested lists of can
didates for names of men that measure up either
-to the present need or the future possibilities. A
' few good names loom prominently out of the muck
i of third-rate politicians.
In this period of dollar-a-day men in the federal
6ervice we had hoped to see the trained business
; men of Hawaii, the keen professional men, the
, broadly-educated, wide-visioned veterahs of the
community, rise to meet the territorial require-;
ments and offer themselves for the legislature as
a matter of partiotic duty. So far the lists for
both parties together fail to furnish one even par
tially satisfactory ticket.
Why should the voters of Hawaii be forced to
choose its law-makers from that class of men
' whose names are never seen as among the leaders
, in commerce or the professions? Why is it that men
who will serve Hawaii on the unpaid commis
sions, in the organizations that do constant com
munity work on the volunteer basis, who lead in
the Red Cross and Liberty Loan drives, who hon
estly regret their inability to don a uniform and
get into active service overseas, who are the ones
to whom the community instinctively turns in an
emergent-v. are not well represented in the list
tf legislative candidates?
It is just as patriotic to serve this part of the
Union at this time as it is to lead a battalion in
France ; it is just as necessary for the general
' . good of the United States to have trained, honest,
.. disinterested men at the Capitol on King Street
as at the Capitol on Pennsylvania Avenue.; it is
relatively as important to have the war measures
and the peace preparations of the Territory of Ha
"r waii well considered and honestly framed as it is
to have the war and peace legislation in W'ash-
ingtoii so considered and framed.
This is a time when we should not have to pick
our lawmakers from the taro patch, the fishmar
' ket, the police court legal ring or the pool room
' fringe. Let us forget the fool things that have
'. heretofore passed in these Islands as "politics" and
reach out for those things that mean something
in this momentous period of the history of the
Islands.
Just at present the primary outlook is greatly
discouraging, but there is time yet for some of

An Eye Witness
T1IL story unfolded recently by Major Fox, a
liritish prisoner of war escaped from ier--.
many, in which he told with simple directness of
his experiences during three years in Cierman
hands, and of the things which he saw with his
own ees in the Cierman prison camps and else
where, demands attention, sa s the Christian
Science Monitor. A normal human being natural
ly shrinks from hearing of the things which Major
I'ox related to his audience at Newport, England,
because ouch tilings are not normal to humanity.
He shrinks still more perhaps front discussing
them. And vet just because they are not normal,
the fact that these outrages are being committed
and all that this fact means is apt to be lost
sight of.
With a vividness all the more remarkable be
cause so largely unconscious, Major Fox showed,
first of all, the terrible shock with which the Bri
tish soldier, who would "gladly have called his
foe noble", found him out utterly ignoble. The
major tells how. in the course of the first battle
; C yrco, he. and Ilia Hl-fl captured some 200 pris
oners together with officers; how he sympathized
with the officers, offered them refreshment, told
them it was "jolly hard luck" for them, and did
all he could for them and their men; how, a few
hours afterwards he was in German hands, and
when he was brought to the officer who was to
have charge of him, this officer "turned and spat
at him full in the face". That was the beginning
of three years of insults, suffering and degrada
tion, days at a time in crowded filthy cattle trucks,
w ithout food or water, with interludes at "wayside
stations where women offered them food, and
snatched it away again on learning they were
English.
Then once in the camp, they were destined to
be the daily helpless witnesses of outrages on
common humanity the like of which the world has
few records outside the annals of the Inquisition.
Let one 'case be taken, and its significance appre
ciated. Three clerks from Paris were forced to
work in the coal mines. Utterly inexperienced
and unfitted for the work, at the end of a day of
toil, their output was tt small and they were
condemned to twenty-four hours in the steam cell,
and now let Major Fox complete the story. "The
steam cell", he said, "is small, and when the men
arc inside and the door closed, hot steam is turned
on, and there is no release for twelve hours. At
the end of twelve hours, the door was opened, and
the strongest of the three was able to walk out.
and pull a half conscious brother after him. The
third was dead. Soup was given to the survivors,
and then they were ordered back, the stonger of
the two being ordered to carry the other one. He
refused. 'One brother,' he said, 'died last night;
I will not carry another one in to die.' The l.er
man sergeant in charge, for a reply, took his rifle
and shot the half-stupefied Frenchman dead be
fore the eyes of his comrade."
Now this was not an isolated case' of barbarity,
the depraved device of some German soldier. The
steam cell is apparently a recognized German in
stitution. It is one of many such institutions, all of
which have, so far as any known protest to the con
trary goes to show, the full approval and recogni
tion of the German people. This, indeed, is the very
essence of all those enormities which have passed
into common parlace under the name of German
outrages. They have the sanction of the German
people. There is no use in railing against them,
still less is to be gained by protests. They should,
however, be noted, not because they are outrageous

Sugar After the War
NEW YORK TIMES The Brussels Sugar
Convention survived the war, and nations
which were slaying each other's subjects observ
ed its rules. But England gives notice that she
resumes complete liberty of action for the future.
It had been known that England intended to do
this, and also that she intended to follow France
in denouncing all commercial treaties with favor
ed nation clauses, but now a step further is taken,
disclosing the tendency in England toward trade
policy after the war. The resumption ot Eng
land's complete liberty of action means that she
will give preference to British sugar in Rritish
markets. Much West Indian sugar will be di
verted from this market, and there is no prospect
that any beet sugar can come lure from the Brus
sels signatories. Germany has been compelled
to raise cereals on her beet acreage, and in Bel
gium, Franc, Austria, and Russia nine!, of the
beet land has been fought over so destructively
that the world supply will be short long after
peace.
It is not to be supposed that the Brussels signa
tories can act together after England's withdraw
al. The object of the convention was to enable
the other countries to "dump" their excess pro
duction in British free trade markets. Canada
promptly enacted an anti-dumping law, and we
decided that a bounty on exports was detrimental
to our interests. Now England determines to
abandon the supply of too cheap sugar which she
had accepted in the interest of her jam trade, and
embarks on a policy of imperial preference.
Here is the seed at once of the destruction of
unfair international competition and the start to
ward something like a British protective policy.
More trades than the sugar trade will be made
over after the war, and the beginnings of the proc
ess are worth attention even amid the rush of
affairs of greater present importance.

PLENTYOF BEANS
Next Season's Crop Will Be Be
tween 10000 and 15-000
Bags, Reports Lightfoot
Farmers in the Kula district, Maui
will produce between 10,000 and 15,000
bags of beans next season, according
to a report made to the market com
mission at its meeting yesterday by
Manager O. B. Lightfoot. This supply
is more than sufficient for local eon-
sumption and will result in a new ex
port being added to tne list or agri
cultural products of Hawaii.
Mr. Lightfoot made an extended visit
to the farming district of Maui with
the view of instructing the farmers of
that community in the proper ship
ping and grading of their products for
-the market. Owing to the slip
shod method followed in the past
by farmers of the Kula district, beans,
particularly, did not bring the market
price that tney anouiu iiere. Tney
were not properly graded and did not
compare iu quality with the imported
bean.
The remainder -of the bean crop for
this year will amount to between 2500
and 1500 bags. Jack Walsh of Ka
hului is handling this output for the
Kula farmers and is willing to market
itheir products through the territorial
market if the commission will reduce
their selling commission from five per
cent to two and one-half percent. The
commission could not agree io mis re
duction owing to the fact that no
storage charges were made for hauling
products and that the haulage charges
fwere light.

in liist'OV which has been fought on

In all pirvioin iMirn the nations en
a ed have supplied their fighters more
or less generously with food, equipment
and munitions, but rarely with luxuries.
In the present war public and private,
agencies have boon working from the
outset in all the belligerent countries
to provide the soldiers with little "ex
tras," niid the chief of theso has been
tobacco.
To Htitish soldiers almost uncount
able millions of cigarettes and hundreds
of tons of pipe tobacco have been
sent, duly free. Rut despite those emir
minis shipments, the consumption of to
bneco in the British Isles has steadily
increased. The cost of tobacco has
climbed from twelve cents to forty eight
cents a ponnd for the low grade dark
American product, and a light China
tobacco used for blending purposes has
jumped from twelve cents to ninety-six
vents a pound.
Anxiety and nervous strain inseparable
from a greBt wnr are held responsible
for the increase in smoking at home.
Testimony from the front is that with
out generous supplies 'of tobacco the
men could not withsand the strain of
continuous conflict.

France and Italy, with leas extensive

what they want next
Assertion that politics Is back of I lie
grand jury investigation in Hilo which
resulted in the the indictment of all
the members of the Hawaii board of
supervisors and the mauagers of sev
eral of the big Crescent City business
establishments, is a far-fetched con
elusion if based on the published state
ment that this is shown because the
date for the arraignment or the de
fendants has been ket fan a 'day ti two
after the October primaries.
Much in effect is the wiy Assistant
Attorney (ieueral Harry Irwin an
swers in part the charge that politics
has led to the investigation and the
findings of the Hilo grand jury. He
points out first that supervisors, the
only political umcials under indict
ment, will not be before the voters
for nomination or election in the fall
elections, because the county officers
are elected in the spriug elections in
odd years.
Personally, he says, he believes the
attorney general's office would not
have given any assitanrc to the Hilo
grand jury investigation if there had
been any indication that politics was
tbe motive back of the request re
reived for aid in making the probe of
the Hawaii country affair.
The request for this aid to the at
torney general's office came from Judge
Clement K. Quiun of the Hilo circuit
court and the special investigation
committee appointed by the grand jury.
Hpecificsilly Attorney Irwin says:
"I do not believe that politics had
or has anything to do with the grand
jury iuvestigatiuu and its findings "
He adds that the only place where a
charge to this effect has bean brought
to bia attention was through the press.

Moon was arrested at Fort Hhafter yes

furring to the Hilo indictments, the
assistant attorney general says:
"It's the customary thing to draw
a red herring across the trail after
such investigations bv crying 'pall
tics'. If kept up long enough the cry
would make prosecutions in all such
cases almost impossible of success, for
in time people get to believe it 11
true. ' '
Assistant Attorney General Irwin
left it plainly to inference he believed
that something of this kind was the
hope of certain Hilo interests in start
ing the defensive charge of "poll
tics", as an explanation for the in
ilictiiicuts returned by the grand Jury
The indictments of the Hawaii su
pur visors is based on the allegation
that llicv exceeded available county
appropriations in buying supplies of
the Hilo business men who have been
implicated.
The charges preferred by the grand
jury at Hilo against nil the members
of the Hawaii board of supervisors,
and several prominent Hilo business
men, us published iu The Advertiser
yesterday, include allegations that the
supervisors sold public property to non
official residents of the city last year,
such as autos und trucks, to be re
purchased out of this yinrs ajipiupria
tions. Deputy Attorney General Hairy Ir
win, who has been furnished with iu
formation of I he indictments, mivm that
toward the end of 11)17 the board of
supervisors found it was exceeding its
estimates and had uv crappropriuted the
year's funds, and then made arrange
ments with privute individuals and
corporations to receive cash from them
iu exchange for various public utilities,
such as nutos, trucks, stone crushers
and mac In nil rv for road building.
A part of the agreement under which
this cash was received was that t.lie
new owners should hold the property
until HUM when it would be bought
back by the county, out of IMS funds. I
This ileal, it is repiutrd by Mr. Ir
win, was contraiv to law, in tout the'
supervisors are not permit ted to agree
to pay out of funds for l'.U tor debts I
contracted during the preceding yeur. I
1'he attorney general's department I
specifically Match that there is no pull
Ural end to the investigation.
That the supervisors were wuriwd in
making this agreement they were do
ing so illegally, is evident from the
fact that Supervisor A. M. Calirinhu
some tune ago int'oiineil his fellow
members that tlnty were proceedmg
contrary to law. ,
An injunction suit was brought a
few months ago by W. J. West, man
ager of the Kilo branch of the von
Hainm Young company, against the
iSchuman Carriage Co. branch, and S.
M. Hpencer, the Hawaii auditor, in
which it was alleged that on Januaiv
1(1 the supervisors had "unlawfully ami
wilfully" attempted to appropriate
t21,57tt.Hl out 'of a so called "inachin
ery fund" for the purchase of three
auto trucks and one touring car from
H human Carriage Co., and further that
A. Akina, a .supervisor, was then and
is now uu employe of the Schuman
Company. The complaint alleged that
a "conspiracy" existed between the
supervisors and the Siliumun company
to "defraud the county." The super
visors are accused of having awarded
thu cuiiliai-t without culling tor bills.
The injunction suit una dismissed in
the Hilo circuit court. The Mipreme
court recently reveised the decision and
remanded the case.
