SDeclal Correspondence) -The figh for nation-wide prohibition, now is ta full swine. The slocah L has been adopted Tass'a constitutional amend xnene before Christmas. Hawaii wouid Vbe alfected by this action,' if approved by three-fourths o the States. It would -mean the com plete and permanent abolition of Jthe liauor traffic. - r In the meantime "efforts will: be made to close the saloons In Ilawal 7 long before the time required for the approval of an amendment to the con stitution. Several measures are now before congress, Intended to make the territory " dry. These ; will be urged for , cassace-immediately after con zress assembles for the long session. , December 3. : " v Judgins from previous record votes, tho next showdown will place Hawaii in the prohibition column. It is doubt ful whether a referendum vote wall be accorded, although that plan Is favor ed in the bouse. The District of Co lumbia goes dry November 1,- and the residents vero given no fhoice in the matter. Congress ' simply decreed an Icewater vdiet without a referendum vote.1 - ,; 7 ' 7 ' 7 "Dry" Force Active The Anti-Saloon League and other prohibition societies are organisingta formidable movement to put through a' "bone dry' amendment to the con stitution at the next session of con cress. The forces -led by Rev. E. .C. Din .. viddie, Iiev. James E. Cannon and others of the Anti-Saloon League are . preparing for a great campaign against open saloons. " At the sessicfn of congress just . closed the prohibitionists were hand! capped by; tho promise of the Demo .cratsx the house not to take up'any general legislation against intoxicat ing; liquors.; They had to content themselves .with securing legislation through " riders to important , war . measures. They will be free at the coming, session to fight for tho tcso-, lition providing ' for ah . amendment for; national prohibition. . The senate "adopted the JSheppard resolution at the last-session, but the ".house pigeon-holed It in the judiciary committee. Immediately upon .the convening of the regular session in 1 December, Chairman Webb : of ; tho Judiciary committee will ask that the : resolution be reported, Mr. ,webbj. is ' one of the activo prohibition leaders of congress ami believes that a dry nation can' fight better than a wet ne. .;: " v, : 7 Free for; Action Now ; . ; ' " 7 At the beginnings of the last session before the house was organized, when there was' doubt as to whether'; the . democrats would be able to reelect $ Speaker Clarkv of not; New .York and Massachusetts t democratic members from wet districts ; threatened serious" trouble unless the leaders of the house promised to .call oft; the prohibition . ists and defer action. on the proposed amendment fop national prohibition. : The democratic leaders gave their pledge, but .- next session conditions will be quite different and but little . trouble " will- be had in placing this legislation -on the program: . Prohibition leaders ;in the house and senate are more confident of Tic ; tory at the next session than they ', were in the session just ended. While the resolution went through the senate with but weak opposition, it was ad mitted - that the necessary two-thirds In the .house could be secured with difficulty. Among several of the ar dent prohibitionists a delay was re- garded 'as of the utmost valued It ould give them time to build the - fires back home and make victory a certainty later on. Estimates of the 'number who would vote.forTthe Shep- pard resolution in the house were so closo to two-thirds that It was not - thought wise to "make a fight. Plans for December . Ever since the resolution was pass ed by the senate the Anti-Saloon League and allied " forces have been laying careful plans fo the work of tho second session of congress. Every pressure has been; brought to bear on members in the"; doubtful list- in their home districts. w v 7-7 The prohibitionists hopo to get the . question settled" by Christmas. Ten - tativd plans, are .to rcport'the resolu lion as soon as congress convenes so it can be debated w hile committees are making up the big supply bills for the war and ordinary expenses of gov ernment A final vote will , probably be taken just before adjournment for the holidays.

If the present cost of milk delivery was reduced, the prico now paid for the product by the consumer could be materially lessened. This is the con clusion reached by the territorial food commission f ollbwihg an Investigation yesterday afternoon of the rise in the price of milk; which went into effect today. -Tor nearly three hours yester day the Honolulu Dairymen's Associa tion was on the grill, and Its side of tho controversy. was heard, as well as the side cf the producer. v ; - V At the close of tho meeting, A. h. Castle, executive officer of the food board, declared that the Increase 'to 15, cents a quart for milk is. unreason able, and that he intends to uso every means within the power of the com mission to prevent it. - -.:-V'.:'. -It is possible." he said, "that all cent . rate may be called for by. the increased price demanded by the pro ducers,: but: even that has' Jiot: been proved, and the commission does not go on record as approving even a one-cent raise until it knows all. there is to know about milk conditions at the present time." : i ' AccQraing to-; S. - W. Smith, whose statement to the commission was pub lished in the Star-Bulletin yesterday, it is now costing the dairymen's asso ciation 6 cents to deliver a quart of milk, this including pasteurization and the coat of : maintaining the associa tion. - ; r'f-'i'1- -:-- ' ' " Producers Ask 9 Cents - - Producers present declared that they wanted 9 cents a quart for their milk. Both Mr. Smith and D. P. R4vlsenberg, the heaviest stockholder in the asso ciation, declared it Would bo impossi ble ' to pay the producers 9 cents a quart and maintain the rate to the consumer which prevailed before' the low rates went into: effect today. . lit the opinion -of the commission lhe cost of between-5 and cents for de livery is unreasonably high, and, X if the producer demands 9 cents a quart, the delivery, cost should be lessened to meet this, added expense instead of forcing the consumers to foot the bill. Chairman Castic. . in ' calling - the meeting to order, declared the com mission preferred not to take drastio action unless necessary, but he point ed out : that the commission ; would subpoena witnesses If necessary,' as it has this power under the law. . r Mr. Isenberg, representing the dairy association, was the first speaker. He said, in part: ; ;:; -' : ; ; r . v, , Personally, I am opposed to a raise in the price of milk to the public But the producer has to be protected. If the' publics-thinks, the producer has been making money, then it is mis taken. A great many of them have to produce their feed.i I'm. perhaps; the only one here who raises all the feed needed at a dairy. It Is true that I gather: ; between ; 15,0(J0 'and . 20,000 sacks of alfraroba beans each .year. and they are good feed for, the cows. As . far as feed is, concerned,' St is ex pensive tj raise it But I'm not un der the terrible expense the '. small producer Is in feeding "bis stock;. . Loses Cows in Test ' ; "In the. last tuberculin.test last week I lost .107 " cows. ;' I have only tested once In 13 months. : I' used to test every month, but' by the yearly test I am able to raise nearly all the calves and so bring up . my herd to its usual standard in numbers. "While I am In control In the dairy men's association, I have refused to take part in any of the activities of the directors " as regards raising the price of milk. . I'm not going to; use my control. If the producer feels that he must get 9 cents for his milk, then the directors can do nothing but raise the price. . I hope that no attack will be ; made , on the association as i the directors have been very fair. Of course, I couia step in ana assume control and put ray foot down on cer tain things, but I'm not going to do It.' In response to a question, Mr. Isen berg said he ? believed 9 cents was a fair price' to pay : the producer for. his milk, But he added that the associa tioh could riot pay 9 cents and still maintain the present price to the con-. sumer. v-v r :-Z'-- Following Mr. . Smith's statement. Chairman Castle expressed the opin Ion that the herds in Hawaii are, not being reduced. 'Mr. Smith declared 111(3 1, UICHUUVIIUIIU IVDIO UO IbU UVIUf the supply of milk. One day this week, he. added, he refused the Alexander Young hotel' SO quarts of extra milk and Oahu College 24 quarts. He said that ice cream was made with milk only if there was a surplus, and that at times milk powder was so Dsutu ted. The price now paid the producer is 8 cents, and milk' Is 'Sold at wholesale for 11 cents, he continued. o Secrets," He Says "There are no secrets at the dairy association," he said. . . The dairy association has two de liveries daily, the morning sdelivery being about double that of the .after noon. Mr. Smith said that the con suming public demanded ; two ; deliv cries. : ; '-' ' itVlr . -He declared that if there "was only one delivery expenses could be Educ ed and the price of milk to the con sumer lessened.. ;": - V'...-: -- One of the .members of the commis sion made I the point that the; stock in the association was being held by the big producers in order to control the price of milk. -V' " 0 r .7 ; Attorney -Frank Andrade pointed out that, because of the high' cost 'of feed and labor, lie has had to prac- rtically abandon" the dairj" business. His herd has been reduced fronulSO o CO cows and his output from 806 to 200 quarts of milk daily. ; - - Price of Feed High ; "High price of feed And.wagcs prac ically forced 'me out,"he declared. T have never met a man yet who ever made a cent in the dairy business.; - One producer said he had. to borrow money In order : to. pay the feed man. f'Do you sell , to; the dairy, associa ion?" he was asked. ; : ; ' . "N6.". he "answered. "I sell to Raw- eybut I guess they're both the same. believe that the producer should bt paid for his milk at least what it costs him." -4 . BolK the Portuguese Japanese and Chinese 'producers present declared they wanted 9 ccnU a quart for their milk. J. F Child, federal' food com missioner, declared that,; in his opin ion, the -cost of delivering milk could be, reduced. Julius Bayer, private sec retary, and business agent for Mr. Isenberg," said that the books of th? dairy men's association were conduct ed In a slipshod manner, and were not to be relied on. ; j ;. :'- : - Further investigation - of the milk question is to j be conducted by the commission. ; No date has . been set for the next hearing. ; . .
