This tux must be paid by the whole saler for all such j;oods on hand on October 4, the date of the act's pass age, and tor all iu transit or invoiced shipment. 'it is difficult for this office to know just what persons are wholesalers at this time." says Collector Johnstone. "It is for all dealers who are under the terms of the act to come forward with their inventories. There la a penalty attached for failure to do so and we don't want to see anybody pen alized.'' It appears that if a dealer does a wholesale business in any of the goods listed below he must pay a tax on all the list. The list will especially con cern druggists who do a wholesale business, in addition some firms will be required to pay a manufacturer's tax. Most drug stores will be required to do so, as will jewelers and manu facturers of rice powder. The list follows: Affects Jewelers Upon any article commonly or com mercially known as jewelry, whether real or imitation, sold by the manu facturer, producer, or importer there of, a tax equivalent to three per cent um of the price for which so sold: and Upon all tennis racquets, golf clubs, baseball bats, lacrosse sticks, balls of all kinds, including baseballs, foot balls, golf, lacrosse, billiard and pool balls, fishing .rods and reels, billiard and pool tables, chess and checker boards and pieces, dice, games and parts of games, except -playing cards and children's toys and games, sold by the manufacturer, producer, or Im porter, a tax equivalent to three per centum of the price for which so sold Hair Dyes, Too Upon all perfumes, essences, ex tracts, toilet waters, cosmetics, petro leum jellies, ha.ir oils, pomades, hair dentifrices, tooth pastes, aromatic cachous, toilet soaps and powders, or any similar substance, article, or prep aration by whatsoever name known or distinguished, upon all the above which are used or applied or intended to be used or applied for toilet pur poses, and which are sold by the man ufactnrer, importer; of producer, a tax equivalent to two per centum of the price for which so sold.

M AVftM AM aYM ST CO., Ltd P0UNDSJNI9I7 Lafck of Pickers Compels Plant ers to Cut Down Shipments; No Advance in Price A difference of over a million pounds of Hawaiian coffee exported during the fiscal years of 1916 and 1917, is shown in the reports of tha United States customs department, compiled up to and including June. Complete reports . to date have not yet been tabulated. The exportation of island coffee to the United States during the year ending June. 1916, amounted to 2,2."2.364 pounds. The valuation was placed at $343,829. The exportation to the mainland for this year has amounted to only 1,987,035 pounds, with the valuation placed at $297,922. Persons closely in touch with the Kona industry declare that although the weather conditions have been ideal, a shortage of labor has cut down the output. The warm weather in Kona has permitted the planters to dry the coffee in the sun without re sorting to artificial means. Lack of pickers, however, has compelled the planters to cut down their exports. While the yearly reports show a big decrease, in exportation, the re port for June, 1917, as compared with June of last year, shows a large In crease in both production and valua tion.' Last year the total output lor mainland consumption reached 83,751 pounds, valued at $12,997. This year, the .. June figures reached 158,10') pounds, worth $24,571. Exports to foreign countries for the year ending June, 1917, amounted to 584,749 pounds, valued at $95,190. Moit of the foreign shipments of Kona cof fee go directly to Manila. Kona coffee is apparently the only food article that has not been affected by war prices. In 1915 island coffee was selling for" 13 to 14 cents a pound. Last year the San Francisco market quoted island coffee at 14 cents, while this year it is quoted at 14 or 14 cents. This steadiness in price is explained by the fact that mainland coffee buyers demand island coffee for blending purposes. Brazil ian coffee is flooding the mainland markets, but Kona still holds its own in the blending marts. There is apparently as steady a de mand for the island coffee from the Philippines as there was before the war. Kona planters have some large' stocks of higher grade coffee picked last year that they are holding for better prices. U. S. MUST RETAIN GOLD TO PAY OWN TRADE DEBTS The embargo on the exportation of gold which has puzzled Honolulu fi nanciers ever since it was announced by President Wilson on September 10, was explained by Clarence II. Cooke of the Bank of Hawaii this morning. "America's supply of gold, which had increased from something over two billions to $3,100,000,000 during the early years of the war, began a rather serious decrease," said Mr. Cooke. "This was due first because of our loan to the Allies, and also be cause foreign companies who are sell ing goods to the Allies now collect their trade bills in New York instead of Petrograd. Paris and London. It was necessary, therefore, to keep our gold in order to pay our own trade debts, hence the embargo." Extreme uncertainty marks Hawaii's immediate future in the matter of ocean transportation, comments .John Waterhouse of Alexander &. Baldwin, who was one of the passengers arriv ing this morning on the Maui, after a vacation trip to California. "The shipping board is up against a. very hard situation in the huge work of handling shipping and cargoes, said Mr. Waterhouse. "But the board is working patriotically and doing its best with the problems that arise. ' What will develop in the Hawaii shipping situation U is impossible to forecast. The situation changes so rapidly that orders one day may be changed the next, and changed again the following day." The shipping board now handles local cargoes on a definite and intric ately worked out system based on ton nage and knots. Businessmen familiar with the plan under which Hawaii steamers are operating point out that in case the shipping board finds it necessary to raise rates, Hawaii's sugar profits will be materially cut, in asmuch as the sugar prices are fixed. "But," say thj Hawaii men, "war is war and predictions on the future are impossible." 4?S 1 1) 1 n a m . . . . r mm 1 Buy a Liberty Bond We will gladly accept subscriptions for amounts from $50 upward. , Bishop Trust Co., Ltd.
