HAftOLD RICE IS
OF FAIR DRIVE
Starts Whirlwind Of Enthusiasm
Among Stock Ranchers And
MAUI TO MARE FINE SHOWING
Harold W. Rice, fair commissioner,
since his return from Honolulu last
week has been busy stirring up en
thusiasm in the Territorial project
which will take place at Honolulu in
June. Being most largely interested
in live stock, he started out first
with the stock men and has met with
success at every hand. All of the
ranchers have agreed to go in big on
the proposition, with the result that
it is already next to certain that eith
er of the other islands will have to
"go some" to beat the showing of
Maul. Mr. Rice feels that the promi
nence given the , subject of meat by
the war gives stock-raising unusual
Importance now, and that now is the
time for developing interest in the
improvement of herd strains. This
Idea appeals with force to other
ranchers of Maul.
While most of the work thus far
has been among the stock men, Mr.

Aala Park Selected
For Fair Purposes
Committee Shies At Expense Of Pro
position On The Irwin Site
Closer In Town
Honolulu, February 20 The first
territorial fair will be hold at Aala
Park. The boad of supervisors on
Tuesday evening granted permission
for its use .after the fair commission
had found that the site originally con
templated, the federal building prop
erty on King street opposite the capi
tal grounds, would be impracticable
for the purpose.
The building committee, appointed
to plan and erect the . necessary
structures for exhibits, estimated
that a vast quantity of roofing and
flooring, costing fully 140,000, would
be required If the so-called Irwin site,
on which the old Hawaiian Opera
House formerly was located, were to
be used. This made the site lmpos-
lible, since the commission has a ter
ritorial appropriation of only $6000 to
cover all preliminary cost of the fair.
Though the Irwin site offered an ex
cellent central location, almost In the
heart of 'the city, with what seemed
ample apace for all exhibits, special
features, amusement concessions and
the like, the ground is bare and soft.
The livestock parades and the
thousands of people moving through
the ground would grind the earth
into a deep dust, which would be
come a quagmire in event of rain.
To obviate this objectionable con
dition the area would have to be
covered by plank flooring or treated
to a costly road-making process. The
building committee believed It would
be necessary to cover the entire area
