JULY IS, 1014
AWAIIAX pineapple is beginning to attract some attention in
England, where npparentlv the field has not been anywhere
near covered, despite the cry of the packers of over production
The Rev. J. Charles Yilliers, of Wailuku has just received from a
friend in England a copv of a mimeographed circular which has been
distributed by a leading grocer among his customers. It is as follows
SLICED HAWAIIAN" PIXKAPPLK.
For a long time we have been urgingwrr custom
ers to try the above article. Wherever it'snried it is
These Pines are, perhaps, the most lucious and de
lightful in flavour of any of the fruits growing in the
tropics. The care with which they are selected and
packed in tins in pure sugar syrup ensures only the
finest fruit in its ripest condition. It is not woody
in flavour but is sufficiently firm to be appetising.
Grown as they are in the rich soil of the Hawaiian,
in the most charming and romantic districts around
Honolulu, they are quite different from the fruit
grown in the vicinity of Singapore and much richer
and more luscious in flavour. The rind and the core
re completely removed and only the lucious rings of
juicy fruit remains.
The price for a heavy tin is only 1 shilling.
They are superior to the-fresh article as we get in
Grocer & High Class Provision Merchant,
This is good advertising, but exceedingly limited in scope. It
would certainly seem to be good business for our pineapple men to get
busy and help such merchants out with a liberal advertising campaign
in their districts.
Another suggestion in connection with advertising pineapples, is the
use of country newspapers of the United States as a medium. There
is no better means of reaching the people effectively than through
country press printers ink and it is one of the cheapest ways as well
Tiikrk isn't a newspaper man in Hawaii who doubts for a moment
that Will Wayne, city editor of the Star-Bulletin, would have gone to
jail, had it been necessary, before he would have broken confidence
with the man who furnished him with the information concerning the
doings of the Federal grand jury. Grand juries may investigate and
judges may rule, but its a safe bet that there isn't a reputable news
paper man in this Territory, or anywhere else who would not willingly
accept a jail sentence for contempt rather than violate one of the first
ethics of the newspaper profession. A newspaper assumes full respon
sibility when it publishes an article, unless it is signed. If it is libel
ous there is ample remedy in law. It does not seem any more reason
able to expect to compel a newspaper man to divulge the source of his
information than it would be to compel an attorney for a prisoner to
appear before a grand jury and tell all he might have learned of his
client's case. Opinions may differ on this point, but there is no differ
ence of opinion among reporters and editors. Not until honor loses its
meaning in the newspapers world can a contempt sentence in such a
ease accomplish more than to possible assuage the pique of a man or of
men who have failed.
Tmc art of being informal is a great thing. It comes largely through
practice. Formal affairs are generally stiff and uncomfortable. Maui's
get-together dinner next Thursday should be of the informal type. It
has a serious purpose, of course, but this shouldn't be allowed to ob
trude. If we can hold these dinners frequently they should be of un
told benefit. We shall become really acquainted and learn to pull to
gether and to enjoy it. There will not be anybody at the dinner who
docs not believe in Maui and in Maui's future. That's a ground upon
which we all stand. And just remember that the other fellow is just as
good a citizen as you, even if he doesn't see things just as you do. But
don't let's be too serious about it.
Thkrk are people here on Maui who look bored at the mention of
tourists in connection with this island. Is is very safe to say that these
persons have never given the matter very much thought. But the fact
is, there isn't a man who has taxes to pay who can afford to be indif
ferent. It isn't simply a matter of concern for hotel keepers and livery
men. The money the tourist spends stays here. The people that get
it put it in circulation right here on Maui, and ultimately it goes into
some form of permanent improvement. And permanent improvements
are taxable improvements. There is nothing like general prosperity to
lighten the tax burden.
Ik you are good citizen you have probably already registered and
will most certainly cast your ballot both in the primaries and in the
flection to follow. But you might go just a step further. Do you know
anyone who hasn't registered? Then spur him up a bit, and help him
to lte a good citizen too.
The interest which the teachers in attendance at the summer school
in Honolulu are manifesting in the agricultural courses provided this
year, spells well for the future of Hawaii.
