NO EXCUSE FOR
LACK OF SUGAR
! Representative Martin VVants
Congress to Probe Situation;
Cars Only Needed
(By C. S. ALBERT.)
(Special Mir-Bsllt1r. Co7Tsp&JeBc.)
WASHINGTON, U. C. Dec. 13
nnnftntatiTe Whitmell P. Martin.
j ProgressiTe-Protectionist. of Louisi
j ana. will urge congress to appoint a
: committee at once to investigate the
sugar shortage. He believes the
chances are good ior tne commmee
to be named, and Is prepared to lay
before it information showing to the
country that the sugar shortage is in
excusable. He has Just returned from
Louisiana where the producers of
sugar are wrought up because they
are unable to get their product to the
market. Mr. Martin declared that not
only Is there no excuse for Louisiana
sugar being held up. but for sugat
from the western part of the country
being withheld.
This country has plenty of sugat
to supply all its needs." he declared.
The only difficulty is about getting
the cars to deliver It and they could
be secured by a proper distribution
of freight.
We are told that car shortage is
the main reason It cannot be carried.
I want to know why it Is that 25 car
loads shipped over a month ago to
Washington have not been allowed to
arrive. The .Interstate Commerce
Commission informed me that it had
sent tracers after them, that appar
ently they were lost .somewhere be
tween Louisiana and their Washing
ton destination.
"In Louisiana there are hundreds of
Ions of sugar awaiting shipment. The
people there have a supply sufficient
to run the country for a long time.
Then there Is sugar in the West that
Is being held up In the same way. If
It . all could he distributed this coun
try would not ltnow any shortage.
The trouble could be remedied by
the shipment of more ocean going
freight to New Orleans or some other
southern point. That would make a
lot of 'emntles available returning to
the north and west, and the problem
would he solved. I understand this
plan Is being considered. It would
hold good if put In practise also to
and from the West
i The sugar is accumulating in
Louisiana. It is discouraging to have
It there and not be able to get it to
the market. The people ought to know
what the facts are, and I propose to
bring them out If an investigation is
allowed.;

HILO. Dec. 24. With tne beginning
of the new year, or rather about the
middle of January, a firm new to Hiio
will open up for business. Fred L
Waldron, Ltd., the well-known Hono
lulu firm of commission agents, ship
ping, men and Importers, will start
business in this city.
-The firm has been established for
many years in Honolulu and Mr. Wal
dron is one of the best known men in
tho territory. He originally was with
T. H. Davles & Co., and then started
in business for himself. Some years
ago he formed the present company,
and since then has forged ahead.
The exact location of the new busi
ness house in Hllo cannot be at pres
ent mentioned, but enough is known
to be able to say that the office and
warehouse will be in a central posi
tion. The Hllo office will be in charge ol
F. Lamb, who has been for a long
time with the firm. R. B. Booth, tho
manager of the company, will arrive in
Hllo on Jan. 3 in order to open up the
business and arrange other matters.
The rapid development and .Im
provement of the Engels Copper pro
perties proved a big surprise to John
L. Fleming of the James F. Morgan
Co., Ltd., who has recently returned
Trom the mainland where he paid a
special visit to the Engels mine.
"I had expected to see & great de
velopment of the property over what
it was on my last visit but I was not
prepared to. see such tremendous -development
as has taken place; on
every hand were to be seen evidences
of the work accomplished and every
where was that ceaseless activity of a
great undertaking in operation," de
clared Mr. Fleming.
The mill was not in operation when
he left but It was expected that it
would start about , Christmas time;
there having been some delay In se
curing transformers for the tramway.
Complimenting the manager of the
mine for his efficient work, Mr. Fleni
lug said:
"Mr. Paxton expects that by th
end of January. 1918, the mill will
handle at least S00 tons of ore per
day and by the end of March at least
1200 tons a day. and by October at
feast 2000 tons a day, which last fig
are means a production of . approxi
mately 80.000 tons of copper a day.
As to dividends Mr. Paxton confident
ly expects that the present dividend
will be double just as soon as the mill
handles a total of, 1200 tons a day

OIL AGAINST
ELIMINATION OF
NAVAL RESERVES
Navy Department Opposed to
Giving Company Anything,
Says Senator Swanson
WASHINGTON. D. C. Dec. 17.
Amendments eliminating from the oil
i.ni laninir hill all references tn the
ii.auii w
.opening of California naval reserves.
I . . . . . V 1 1 1
were introduced today wnen me vui
came u in the senate. Senator Pitt
man, fh charge of the measure, agreed
to accept them.
Speeches in support of the bill were,
made by Senator Kendrick and Sen
ator Borah. Senator Borah said the
people in the Western states are op
posed to the leasing plan, but, owing
to war conditions, realized that some
action was necessary.
Senator Phelan read a message
from the Honolulu Consolidated Oil
Company, protesting against the
elimination of the naval reserve sec
tion from the bill as "unjust and un
fair." He explained the company
controlled about 3000 acres in the re
serve, and that in the legal proceed
ings in progress for years between
the government and the claimants the
company had won nearly all of it3
claims and the others are pending.
Senator Shafroth urged the Cali
fornia senator not to oppose the
Swanson amendment, declaring he
believed it better to leave the ques
tion involved to a separate bill.
King Flays Bill
Charges that the navy department
"coerced with a bludgeon," the nava
committee into reporting a "bill thai
would permit the confiscation of
property without the process of law,"
were made by Senator King.
Senator Swanson replied that the
head of the department was satisfied
with the existing law, but was op
posed to "giving the Standard Oil
Company and the Honolulu Com
pany" anything.
"All the navy department wants Is
to keep the present law and let the
claimants go into the courts with
their claims." he added. "This bill
proposes to turn oyer $100,000,000 to
a few private corporations."
Senator Swanson also denied that
Secretary Daniels had coerced Secre
tary Lane, aid said that a bill now
being prepared regulating the open
ing of the naval reserves provides
that the final title to all claims are.
to be passed on by the secretary of
the Interior.
Senator Gallinger, minority leader,
announced he was opposed to the
leasing system, and would vott?
against the bill.
The action of government officials
In attempting to get control of ail
the naval reserve land was attacked
by Senator King, who declared the
whole policy has been illegal because
the claimants have rights of which
they cannot be divested.
Calls It Cruel
"It was a cruel and unwarranted
act on the part of. the government
officials," he asserted. "I don't care
who they are or the motives that
warranted their action. It eem tn
me that if we did the right thing as
10 inoee claims wnich have been
tested in the courts, we would pass
an act confirming the claim, which
would be a rebuke to tBe officials for
their ffic!ousness.,
The Utah senator criticized whar
he called the "bureaucratic methods'
employed in Dandling the public do
main, and declared the rainina' hnci
ness in the West hag been retarded.
If the mineral lands -are to be de
veloped, he argued, they will have to
he opened to the public.
Senator King asked Senator Pitt
man if any executive onnositinn tn
the bill had been expressed.
"I don't know if there has been
any executive opposition, but I do 1
know that some of the most lnfTnenMai !
members in the house are opposed,"'
ue replied.
It might as well he known
