Women Of Hawaii .
To Be Registered
(Continued from Tnpe One.)
The women's registration in the isl
ands probably will not begin for three
or four weeks. because detailed in
structions must be obtained from
Washington, but much remains to be
done meintime. The 1ob promises to
be as hard and exacting as the regis
tration of the young men for military
service, sine- the attempt must be
made to obtain the name and address
of practically every housewife, of
every nationality and race, in the ter
ritory. To all of these the registration cards
must be sent.
The women's committee now desires
to enlist the rooperai'on of all clubs
societies and organizations in the isl
amis, of every kind, creed or race,
which have feminine memberships,
auxiliaries or other affiliations. The
organizations either will be asked to
to supply lists of women, or to tinder-
take the distribution of the piedge
cards among I heir members and
friends. Such organizations will not
be expected to confine their activities
to their own circles of members, but
to help spread the campaign among
all their friends and acqua'n'ance.
All organizations, on the oilier isl
ands as well as Oahu, who are willing
to cooperate with the women's com
mittee are requested to notify thai

been looking for.
The instructions which accompany
the applications are most specific, cov
ering all possible details.
Special emphasis is laid upon the
fact that in this, the second of these
training camps to be held by Uncle
Sam, the chief objective is to obtain
men who have had experience in lead
ing and directing other men. The in
structions point out that preference
will be given to men above thirty-one
years of age, and who have been suc
cessful in their own particular calling
in civil life, irrespective of whether
they have had previous military train
ing. However, military training will
count heavily in the selection of ,aj);
plicants. The instructions aJsA- point
out that these men ae to be utilized
for the training of t.ue second five hun
dred thousand mp& selected under the
draft law and0 fill vacancies that
may occur in. the commissioned per
sonnel of thfe first hundred thousand.
The camp - win open August 27, with
Vte defirfite mission of producing a

field sand coast artillery) capable of
filling all places in the grades above
lieutenant, and many places in the
grade of lieutenant in the second

the Fourth of July he anticipated any
future grape juice industry by making
from his own grapes and selling to
the thirsty patriots fifty dollars worth
of the product.
Mr. Thomas says there is no trick
about the manufacture of grape juice;
it is a case purely of sterilizing the
juice in the bottles, and he believes
that the bottles and other adjuncts
can be secured here.

Not For Sugar Men
(Continued from Page One.)
that the Commissioner of Public
Lands, Hon. B. G. Rivenburgh. has
appeared before the Committee to ad
vocate the passage of the bill.
"No Information concerning the bill
has, before this time, been given In
the papers here, and I wish to ask
your committee not to take favorable
action on it until copies can be gotten
here and some expression of opinion
be sent you from the plain farmers
of the Islands who are most vitally
interested In this matter.
"From the newspaper reports the
provisions of this bill seem to be much
the same as those of Senate Concur
rent Resolution No. 14 of the 1917
Session of the Legislature of Hawaii,
which was defeated by the House of
Representatives. This resolution we
plain farmers believed to be thoroly
bad, and a subterfuge on the part of
the sugar interests here to defeat legi
timate homesteading. The same
Senate that passed it defeated every
measure advanced by the farmers and
passed by the House looking to the
furthering of legitimate homesteading
and small farming in the Territory.
I refer particularly to our legislature's
H. B. 24, The Farm Loan Act for Ha
waii, and H. B. 128, providing for
Homestead Lease with Rental.
"In our last legislature the House
represented the people, the Senate
was sugar controlled. The House re
fused to concur in the Senate Resolu
tion referred to. and the appearances
are that the sugar people have car
ried their efforts to the national capi
tol very quietly hoping to gain their
point there before we realized what
they were about.
"We realize the evils that have
taken place in homesteading here.
There may be some need for a change
in the law, tho a strict enforcement
of the law as it exists would go a long
way towards discouraging "fake"
homesteading. We thought a change
was needed and advocated H. B. 128,
referred to above, which the Senate
killed. Under this bill the govern
ment would always retain title, the
homesteader must continuously reside
on the homestead, and the government
woud receive a perpetual rental of
4 per cent of the value of the land.
Such a method of homesteading would
protect the government fully from
both the sugar interests and the fake
homesteader, and would give the legit
imate homesteader every possible
chance. The method used in New
Zealand is very similar to this, and
has been successful there. But any
change in the law which would take
the power to require the opening up
of the land out of the hands of the
people, where it now is under that
clause of the Organic Act which be
gins, 'Whenever twenty-five or more
persons,' would be a calamity to the
Americanization of the islands, for
one of the greatest aids to that Am
ericanization will be the establishment
of a contented and prosperous rural
