In part. Mr. Smith s statement to the oa" Plant Bnd deliver milk, me mar

"The Honolulu Dair) men's Associ. increased. ' V .
atan I not dividend nivln? nn.
cern. ' iTlor to June su, 1914, a divi
dend of one-half of one per cent was
paid yearly. The association is main
tained for the benefit of thcr producer.
By co-operating and maintaining a
single, central plant the cost of treat
ing and distributing the milk is cut
to the minimum, but of course rising
and falling according to the market
conditions or things that enter into
operating the plant and distributing
the milk. The association ; has al
ways aimed to furnish the consumer
with, pure milk and cream, delivered
to almost all parts of Honolulu twice
daily, at as low- a figure as possible.
The cooperation of the dairymen in
operating, a single central plant has
been a benefit to. the consumer as well
as the producer.
Met Public Demands -
fi 'The association has more. than kept
I apace with the demands of, the public
and of the City Board, of Health by
complying; with their requirements and
installing machinery for treating milk
which fcould safeguard the consumer.
This .has been done with considerable
expense to the association. . Prior to
iDtiT milk was' delivered in cans only.
As modern'methods were Introduced
on the mainland the same were taken
up' hefe. V" Bottle delivery took tne
place' of can tieuvery,' the Board ' of
Health and Food Commissioner notify
ing us that even the filling of bottles
from cans, on the wagons- would not
be allowed. The shipment of bottles
to this'ditsant part of . the world and
the constant loss; and breakage is a
tremeodoua ..item of expense to the
association. We do not believe the
consuming public would care to go
back to jthtf old system of can de
livery, yet this is one of the most vex
ing problems that confronts distribu
tors Of milk. : - v ' v -' ;' :;
"The association installed the Gou
cher electric system Xor treating milk
seven years ago at an expense of
about $6000. Also a sanitary bottle
tilr and capper was installed and. we
were able to give the people of Hono
lulu' milk with very low bacteria count.
The electric system was Yery expen
sive lif.operate. At that time we had
the most improved equipment obtain
able In the United States. Later the
New York Board of Healtli after care
ful test and close study decided to
adopt the holding system of pasteuri
zation a system which is being adop
ted all over tue, trnited States, and is
the one thoroughly effective system
for rendering milk safe from possible
disease germs. The association de
cided to install this system after; be
ing informed by Mr. A. W. Hansen.
Food Commissioner, that the system
would meet the requirements. - The
association now has that system in
operation, having; two 400-gallon white
enameled holding vats and automatic
filling and capping machine installed!
at an expense of about $3000. ; We have
recently installed an automatic bottle
washer which enables U3 to wash bot
tles in a stronger and hotter soda
solution than was possible with hand
washins machines. - c-.
; "Now we " would consider the most
serious C'estion that has ; confronted
the '.association and that . confronts
most every nllk company in the states
which, looks out for a city milk sup
ply. "The problem Is even more acute
here than on the. mainland ; because
we are entirely cut off from the mar
kets of the world. That problem is
the over-supply of milk which must be
carried at times. We must carry this
over-supply due to the fact that we
must , look out for the demands . for
extra milk which are made upon us
and due to the - fact r that milk r ia
flush at certain seasons and we must
take it. in. order to be able to com
mahd the mils at other seasons when
the milk supply is short 1 due: also
to the fact that at certain times, of
the year, a considerable number of
milk, cow's are removed suddenly when
the Territory condemns them for tu
berculosls. Such Is the case now since
within, the last month more than one
hundred,' cows have been condemned
for,, tuberculosis. Now it has ; been
necessary to make this extra sup
ply of milk into butter at a distinct
loss to : the ' association. It takes 12
quarts of milk with butter fat of 3.6 ft
to make one pound of butter. Figur
ing the milk at 8c per, quart It 1 costs
us 96c to make a pound of butter.
which we must sell in competition with
California butter which sells from 40
to 50c per pound. Figuring Califor
nia butter at .40c a pound we lose $."6
on every one hundred pounds; figur
ing California brtter at 50c a pound,
we lose 46 oa every hundred pounds
of butter, not considering the cost: of
churning and delivery. At times dur
ing the last few years we have made
over; 2000 pounds of butter monthly
with a loss of about $1000 per month.
You will see thac the extra milk that
the association must carry to provide
for the consuming public It carries at
a loss. '.::r"! P-u r . "
The Cream Business V11
?Now - this leads us up to ar ques
tion , which we, have 'frequently been
asked: Is it! possible that- the-' lee-
cream business sbould be running at
the-expense - of ? the' milk business?
Cuits tte contrary. Is true u t (if
words in explanation win show. " Our
purpose in going into the production
of ice cream was mainly for the pur
pose of providing an outlet for our
over supply of milk, which up to that
time as already mentioned had to be
churned at a consiuerable loss. This
veniure has been successful and the

milk, we are operating our plant and

V Federal Judge Horace W. Vaoghn
today took under advisement ine mo
tion or the public utilities commission ;
to remand from federal to circuit
court the motion of the Inter-Island
Steam Navigation Co. to dissolve Lie
temporary Injunction brought against
it by the commission. The court an-1
nounced that he would try and ae-j
clde the matter this week. J
Attorney E. M. Watsou and Attor-

AID RED CROSS
Not all clever people are able to put
their talents to such worthy advantage
as Mrs. Roger Burnham. who has or
ganized the Lanal Players (may they
be long with us) and who Is skilfully
directing a series of plays to be pro-
auced auring tne year ior tne material
welfare of the Red Cross. We cannot
always do "our bit" under pleasant
circumstances, but we can enjoy the
Lanal Players as much as we like.
knowing that the price of our ticket:
swells the funds of the Red Cross. The
work of Mrs. Burnham is a truly patri-J
otic work, for In these trying times
she furnishes us with most refreshing
laughs, while at the same time we
feel we are patriotic in giving our
money to this wonderful work. Mrs.
Burnham receives no compensation
for her work, and she truly gives most
of her days to drilling the cast, be
sides the. hundred other things to be
thought of incidental to theatrical
work. None of the pjayers receive a
salary, and Mrs. Burnham has used
great discretion In her choice of plays
so that the scenery and costumes do
not run into money. The players
have been furnishing their own cos
tumes, as the management has been
jealously guarding Its hoard, endeav
oring to give all possible to the Red
Cross. With so many willing helpers.
Mrs. Burnham promises to be very
successful, and. aj.1 Honolulu lovers of
the drama can go to enjoy the playa
with a free conscience, knowing that
the money is well spent.
The second appearance' of the Lanal
Players will be on Thursday evening.
