C'ommerciaJ wireless operations in the Islands who have beenfon the tnxious scat on account of the Fed eral examination which they.raust take under the new international wireless law, -which roes into effect i December 13, have no immediate cause to worry. True, every operator J not in the government service, either r commercial or amateur, must 'take out a licen.se under the new :aw,but, i so far as Hawaii is concerned, there is no one with authority to pounce on them at the Track o dawn Friday next, provided that they can no: pro duce such license. Eventually Uncle Sam will see to it that everyone, who pounds - brass is duly licensed, but the operators here will have a eason able time to bone for their exams and go through the required practical and theoretical tests. The United States and insular pos? sessions has been, divided into radio districts, each being governed by a chief radia inspector, and a corps of deputy inspectors. 'Hawaii is in the sixth district, which also includes California, Nevada, Utah and Arizona. It. G. Cabaniss is the inspector, wtth headquarters at San' Francisco. Lieutent I M. Stevens, captain of the local naval yard, has been ap pointed an examining officer, and is authorized to put applicants through their paces, and, if successful, furnish them with proper licenses, These are of four kinds : 4 commercial,: first and second c!ass; and amateur, first end second class. It is not part ol Lieutenant Stevens duties, however, to raid radio stations for evidence of Illicit operations. The newt law puts inta effect the provisions of the Berlin international' radio-telegraphic convention, which drew up uniform wireless regulations tor all nations. One Important fea ture of the new law Is that govern ment stations are permitted to take commercial messages, . when mere is no commercial station open or. avail able. -o"-v,. - '. .

Still, there : might be a more unfitting Christmas : gift than - a doughty mule -it all depends on the objeei of re gard. Then, again, in Hawaii the mule would be a more appropriate pack-bearer for, Santa Ciaus than the reindeer." ; Ve can hardly eay that the holi days; make much difference to the eutomobile trade," C.

We also handle the Studebaker, the Stutz and the Velie. Just now the Stutz eppears to be making more impres sion than any other, judging by the inquiries about it. Ed. Lord and A. W.

If hard times are not reflected in the jewelry stores, then hard times can scarcely be said to exist. When the record - is being smashed in costly jewels, as is hap Denine at Wichman's, it is evidence that there is a lot of loose money be ing shed in the land. "Business far exceeds our expec tations so far," said. MerU? M. John son, vice-president and treasurer -of H. F. Wichman & Co., today, when asked about the holiday trade. "Dia mond and pearl goods are selling very well this year. Diamond and platinum bar pins are a great attraction. Our stock is very strong in gold and silver novelties.

In 1910 this state had a surplus crop of 5.728,000 bushels of wheat, after providing for roc. ! tior. within the state and for grain re quired for peed purposes by the farm ers. Jn 1911 the surplus available for export had increased to 40,377,00.") and j this year the surplus wa3 io,060.000. Oregon's surplus wheat crop increased from 10,2.jO.OOO in 1910 to 14.92S.0O0 ythis year. California Is Short. The figures presented in the roort enable some interesting comparisons to be made.

Figures presented in the report on the apple production of the United Ftates show that the danger of over production, of which much has been heard of late, is a faction. Ten years pgo tiej apple crop or the United States was 51.3 as compared with Go.9 in 1912, an increase which might well be cared for by the increase in popu lation. In Washington this year there were 100 boxes of apples produced lor every j 7 boxes produced ten years ago.
