A Proud Record
HAWAlii has ItltitrV. h proud record in many
v.ivsV)f patriotic pntlntithnipy since tliat day
when tin- Kaiser loosed bis prent gray horde and
sent it on iu bloody .path through Hel'inm into
France, l.ut in no one particular have the people
of thee Isl.iiuK made ;i greater record than in
what ha lxcu done towards the Fatherless Chil
dren of Frame Fund. There are one hundred and
twenty si branches of the fund throughout the
I'nited State, and in this long lit the Honolulu
branch stands seventh. Only six other coninuini-
lirs iMc more than we did in the
work, while one hundred and nineteen came below

1 v the greatest cities, Mich as New York. Chicago.
Philadelphia and Sail Francisco, and each of these
places, with the exception of San Francisco, had
the inspiration of a visit from (leneral Joffre. in
whose honor the fund was greatly augmented.
Not only did Hawaii do well in the "adoption"
of so man) of these little, innocent ictmis ot I 'rus

necessities of their widowed mothers are just as
great nowj. as then, while throughout France the
number of grief stricken mothers and dependent
children grows with each day's battle along the
dead-strew n fighting front. Today the need is
greater, not less, a fact that has been recognized
by at least one of the military units which last
year adopted tie French orphans. This is Hat
tery " of the First Field Artillery, which, in re
newing its subscription, increased the amount and
added a sixth orphan to its list.
Hawaiian foster parents of these Trench chil

in which to 'send word to Santa Clans regarding

TERRITORIAL FOOD ADMINISTRATOR
CHILD has received for publication to the
people of Hawaii a request from Hoover that food
conservation be continued here as heretofore, with
those few alterations of the regulations as have
been permitted. It is a recpiest that Hawaii will
very willingly observe. Beyond the increasing
costs of provisions, the people of these Islands
have felt the food restrictions comparatively little.
We have saved much and suffered none.
Compared ith other Americans we have been
most fortunate in food as in all else. The fuel
shortage means nothing to the dwellers in these
June island-. The sugar shortage has not ailed
cd ii- h.oc had no "Worklcss Mondays", no
"l.ightless Nights'' bevond the ordinary, no actual
suffering of any kind Compared with the people
of the war one our little inconveniences are not
worth mentioning. 'Take the case ol I'elgium, lor
one. A recent government report shows that the
.price of meat has risen in that country from thirty
live tents to two dollars per pound A pound ol
butter which before the war cost thirty live tents
now costs So s( Ine egg costs twenty-five cents,
and so does a pound of potatoes, which four years
ago sold for one cent. The average cost ol the
dailv living of a I'.elgian family of two adults and
two children, which before the war was sivty two
cents a dav. is now $3.50, and the yearly budget
of $M0 for food expenses alone has risen to S1J40
The rich people of Helgiuin are spending their
capital, the people of the middle class are com
pletely ruined, and the laboring class, the majority
of whcuii are unemployed, .ire on the verge ot star
vation and entirely dependent on relief from out
side. Most people have lost twenty five percent of
,heir weight; the cast's of tuberculosis have iu
creased one hundred percent and the doctors in
spite of their untiring devotion, can no longer cope
with their task. The mortality has increased one
hundred percent, while the birth rate has decreas
ed by almost as much.
America, through neutral disti ibutoi. is at
tempting to feed I'.elgnnn, as well as making up
the food shortages in I'.ntain, France. Italy. Suit
erland and the Scandinavian countries e are
also pouring supplies into Northern Russia by way
of Archangel. The task, even with bumper crops,
is a great one, worthy of uur best efforts.
It is intimated that in Hawaii the time may
come when we will be restricted in our coiisunip
tion of sugar. Inasmuch a- sugar is a food o!
Which we produce largely and inasmuch as the
sugar we use profitably must necessarily reduce
the amount of food we would otherwise import,

FOC 1 1 and Hoov er have been (icrmany's most

stronger, fighting with a strengthened jnorale anil
with more and more determined and confident na

disintegrating, the peoples are growing; more and
more disheartened and the spirit of open mutiny
within the ranks of the fighting men is beginning

Scrap Iron Lying
At Kailna
Is Scrapped Over
Harbor Board Wants To Collect
Fees For Long Use of Wharf
As Junk Pile and Debate
Grows Animated On Ways and
Means
There wa almost a scrap over scrap
iron at the meeting of the hnrhor com
mision yeaterdny, hut the controversy
waa finally settled by "negotiation"
when Chairman Lyman H. Bigelow wa
authorized to try and find the owner
of thi aernp iron and notify him that
he will either have to remove it from
the dock at Kailua or pay demurrage.
The trouble came up on consideration
of a letter from the wharfinger at Kni
lua, Hawaii, in which he stated thnt he
hnd notified the Japanese who own the
aernp iron to remove it, but thnt in
tead of doing o lie had gone to Ho
noluln and the twenty tons of old iron
was still on the pier at Kailua and in
everybody's way. (
Sugar Is Blamed
Commissioner Wntkins stated thnt it
was supposed thiit the Inter Island
st,enmer would take this scrap iron
away, but that there was such a rapid
movement of sugar lately, due to the
many ships calling here, that evidently
there had been no opportunity to re
move the iron.
But it was explained that this iron
had Iiee'n there a long time, in spite of
orders for its removal. 'ommissioner
Wakefield moved that demurrage be
charged 011 the iron from September 1,
at tlie same rate as charged iu llono
lulu and Hilo, namely twenty five cents
a day per ton.
"How collect it I" asked Coininis
sioner Metzger.
"Attach the iron," remarked Wat
kin.
"Well, you can't make a rule retro
active," answered Metger, "and we
only have demurrage rule for llono
lulu and Hilo and none for other ports
of the Islands. ' '
"Still, I think we could make a de
murrage ehnrge stick," suggested Com
missioner McClellau.
"If we do it won't be long before
we own that iron," answered Judge
Metger.
"Wouldn't this be a good time to
amend the rules so as to cover su h
cases and enable us to charge demur
rage I" asked Chairman Bigelow.
Kailua Busy Wharf
Commissioner Wakefield submitted a
motion to charge the owner of the
scrap iron demurrage, stating that ii
was an outrage for twenty toua of
iron to he left for months on the Kai
bin wharf, which, he said, was n busy
wharf. Commissioner Metger held that the
hoard euubl onforoe payment fur re
moving the iron, hut was dubious about
recovering for demurrage. The board
could remove the iron at its own ex
peuse and then bring suit against the
owner to recover and attach the iron.
"How much would that tost i ' ' asked
Wntkins suspiciously.
"Not very much," replied Metzger.
"except for the attorney fee," he add
ed, and everybody smiled. "You would
have to give notice to charge demur
rage, ' ' he continued.
Near Solution
Commissioner McClellau nearly solved
the problem of the scrap by suggesting
that the hoard give notice to the owner
of the iron that he would be charged
ilmurrage hereafter.
Then came up the question as to how
much demurrage to ehafge Commission
er Metger thought it would not be
fair to enforce the same rates on out
side ports as paid on the busy piers of
Honolulu or Hilo.
Finally Commissioner Wakefield sug
gested that Met.ger draw up a new
regulation and amendment to tlw rules,
to be submitted to the (lovernor, wdiich
would solve the problem of demurrage
rates for the outside ports of the Ter
ritorv .
This suggestion was finally adopted,
but meanwhile Chairman Bigelow was
instructed to try and find the owner of
that scrap iron in Honolulu and
"scrap" it out with him about re
moving the Htuff right away.

Violated Food Administration
Regulations
Failure to comply with the I'nited
IStates food regulations has brought Vo
hIi iila Brothers, Japanese importers iu
this city, into trouble with J. F. Child,
the federal food administrator for Ha
wuii. The Japanese firm has been or
dered by Child to suspend at once for
doing business without first securing a
I'nited State food licence from the
food administrator.
Yoshi.ln Brothers is a branch of a
big Osaka, Japan, firm of the same
name, he local branch being estublish
ed here only a few months ago. Since
theu the Japanese concern continued iu
dealing iu rice and other foodstuffs and
prov isions without a federal licence
which is contrary to the food regula
tions. When Child's attention has been
called to this case, he acted promptly
and or.lcie.l suspension of its business.
