ERS DARE NOT
TAKE ALL FRUIT
Statement By James D. Dole
To Pineapple Growers
THE LOWER HOUSE
James D. Dole, the "Pineapple
King", went to Maui n few day
igo and told the pineapple growers
over there what they are up against.
rhe Maui News gives the following
account of his visit:
Declaring that the pineapple
packers of Hawaii are earning
every ounce of load they dare carry
for the present season, and that
even with the exceedingly low price
of fruit prevailing they will not
know whether or not thev are to
get out whole before late next fall,
James D. Dole, president of the
Hawaiian Pineapple Company, of
Oahu and of the Haiku Company,
presented the packers' side of the
present situation to a large gather
ing of homesteaders and other
pineapple growers at the Kuiaha
school house, on Thursday night.
Mr. Dole stated that at the pre
sent time there are at least 6000 or
8000 tons of fruit ripening on
Oahu which no canner will accept
at any price, for the reason that he
dare not spend the additional $40
to $50 per ton required to put it in
to cases. This fruit, he states,
has been offered as low as $5 per
ton, but that the price has nothing
to do with the matter. Hundreds
of thousands of dollars, he said,
which has been borrowed to put
up the pack, must.be repaid
whether the goods are marketed or
not, else the companies must go to
To give an idea of the tremen
dous growth of the pineapple busi
ness, Mi. Dole stated that this
year's pack of 2,250,000 or more
cases equals half as much as that
of all the varieties of trait put in
cans in the state of California; this
development being reached in but
11 years, against the many years of
growth of the Coast canning in
dustry. Thesurprising thing to Mr. Dole
is not that difficulty has been ex
perienced in moving the pack, but
th.it the crisis did not come long
ago. The fact that Hawaiian pine
apple is the queen of all fruit put
in tins is the only explanation for
Mr. Dole admitted that the cost
of growing pines is about $15 pet
Ion, and that the homesteaders
with contracts, who get this year
$11.25 per ton, and those without
contracts, still less, if they sell
their fruit at all, have a heavy loss
to tace. He stated that he had
been a homesteader himself and
that he wished to see the Haiku
settlers succeed, and that the Hai
ku Fruit & Packing Company will
do everything it can to help them
Mr. Dole went at length into the
history of the pineapple develop
ment in these islands. He claimed
that every effort is being made to
extend the market, and declared
from personal observation, made
during his recent trip to the main
land, that Hawaiian pineapple i3
being sold ior less in retail stores
all over the United States, than
almost any other fruit, and that
unquestionably this fact, together
with the quality of the product, is
creating a greater demand than
Hon. J. II. Conev has definitely
announced his candidacy to suc
ceed himself in the House of Re
presentatives (his card appearing
elsewhere in this issue), and he
will in all probability be elected in
the primary. In order to be elected
in the primary, any candidate will
have to receive a majority of all
the votes cast, and some of the po
liticians are figuring that Mr. Co
ney will be able to do that.
James K. Kula, the second can
didate to appear1 in the field for
the House, is new in the arena. At
the same time he is well known,
is competent and popular. That he
wi!i be able to land the nomina
tion is quite probable, but whether
or not he may be elected in No
vember will depend largely upon1.
who is up against him.
J. K. Lota, formerly of Hanalei,
wants to run again, He has been
away from the island about a year,
studying- for the ministry, or some
thing of that sort. Il is also stated
that ha is so busy studying that,
at best, he will be able to give
little time to campaigning at home.
Whether the voters will be willing
to stuff the ballot box for Lota with
out again sizing him up on the
platform remains to be seen. How
ever, Lota is a smart man, and
now that he is following in the
footiteps of Stephen Desha, lie
should know how to work the
Mr. Th. Brandt, of Waimea,
will not run for the House of Re
presentatives This will be a dis
appointment to many friends, but
this conclusion is probably final
It-will be a satisfaction to know,
however, that Mr. Brandt has pro
mised that, if conditions remain the
same as now, he will be a candi
date for supervisor of Kauai coun
ty next Spring.
Up to date there is only one sen
atorial vacancy, the seat of Sena
tor Knudsen, and Senator Knud-
sen is the only candidate yet in the
fit Id to succeed himself.
It is difficult to get a line on
what the Democrats intend doing,
but it is reported that they will
have a full ticket in the field. As
near as can be learned, however,
nothing definite will be done un
til Link McCandless comes over
here early in August. .
Strict Quarantine On Account
Of Strange Scourge Among
An infectious disease of swine
the exact nature of w hich is as yet
undetermined has played frightful
havoc with the hog ranches in the
vicinity of Honololu during the
last three months.
Judge Andrade has lost 150 fine
swine. The Bellina Ranch has lost
heavily and many Japanese who
made a good living from their
small herds have lost practically
their entire investment.
Besides this unidentified scourge,
a very virulent tvpc of hog-cholera
has exacted heavier toll from the
Oahu herds during the last six
months than for years before.
The territorial veterinarians have
been very busily engaged trying to
check the spread of both of these
diseases but thus far without mak
ing much headway. The board of
agriculture and forestry has order-
d a quarantine of the entire island
and no live swine can be shipped
out of Honolulu.
Ashford And Edings
President Wilson last Wednes
day sent to the senate the names
of C. W. Ashford to be first judge
of the Circuit Court at Honolulu
and Judge W. S Edings to suc
ceed Judge Kingsbury at Wailuku,
Maui. The Bur Association had
endorsed Edings for. the Maui bil
let and had given a sort of half
endoisenient to the candidacy of
Ashford, Edings was formerly a
judge in west Hawaii.
Mr. and Mrs. Francis Gay, ac
companied bv their party of friends,
will be expected home tomorrow.

A sporadic case of diptheria ap

boy, about 10 years of age, who
had just arrived home from attend
ing the Kaiulani school, Palania.
Honolulu, anda Japanese school in
the same neighborhood. Pie was
sick when he left Honolulu and
brought the disease with him.
The patient was removed
promptly to an isolated building,
and the house in which he had
been staying for two days was thor
oughly fumigated, white - wash
ed. etc., and quarantined.
This is the second time in the
past few months that diptheria has
been brought to Kauai from the
other islands. In the first instance,
the disease was quickly stamped
out, and it is believed that equal
succiss will be realized at Camp 4
