Grove Farm Alfalfa One of tho alfalfa fields Js badly in fested with a disease which gives the plants a defoliated appearance. It was found that tho stems wero cover ed with rust spots, slightly elongated, running up and down tho stem. Healthy plants do not have those rust spots. Tho matter will be called to tho attention of a plant pathologist. C. Wilcox Cassava Feed Mr. Wilcox explained his process of preparing cassava feed as follows: "Tho roots brought in direct from tho field aro washod and passed through a slicer and chopper which consists of a centrifugal disc with protruding kulfc edges. This machine cuts tho root Into small chunks no lar ger than a half dollar, which aro then put through the drynlg process for about threo days. The weather must bo fair to insure eood drying, and as showers are frcijuent here, they have experienced difficulty In this process. The drying and curing in tho sun secni3 to expel the prussic acid which has an offensive odor in cassava when green. Ths odor is entirely, absent in the cured product. When the chips arc thoroughly curVid they aro ground into moal in a regular grinding ma chine. Tho finished article is white and particles aro about as largo a cracked corn." Rations For a mule feed this meal is mixed as follows: Cassava, 100 lbs., mixed mule feed of oats, barley and bran, 200 lbs., corn and cob meal, 200 lbs. This makes tho ration one-fifth cassava. Ten pounds of this mixed feed is fed per mulo daily with other .things contain ing protein. Deans Mr. Wilcox intends to raiso.olvet beans for meal to mix with his feed and will make an excellent addition to tho ration above d03crlbed. Tho County Agent is getting 500 pounds of velvet beans from Pioneer Mill Co. for Mr. Wilcox to use for this purpose. Pig Club Kauai is soon to have a Pig Club for tho children.

Crawford and Cheatham, the members of tho Chamber of Com merce Committee who wont to Hono lulu to discuss tho proposed form of cane growing contracts, which tho plantations and homesteaders wero asked to enter Into in planting lease expired lands, wore courteously re ceived by the Governor nnd Deputy Attorney General Irwin. They pre sented their arguments for bettor con tract from tho homesteaders' stand point and were told that many of their points wero well taken. Owing to tho absonce of Mr. Rich ard Cooko from tho city, they were unablo to discuss the matter with tho Planters' representatives direct, but wore told that tho Government would place their arguments before tho Planters and a reply would bo for warded. Tho point which scored heavily was that under tho proposed contract, with sugar as at present (six cents), tho grower would get only $48.00 out of tho $120.00 gross which tho mill wouhf receive for a ton of sugar. Tills the Administration admits is not a fair division. Tho committco will hold, another meeting soon, when the Planters' re ply Is received, and discuss the matter further. :: KAUAI PLANTERS TO BE ASKED TO GIVE COST DATA Local representatives of plantations on Kauai, says the Star-Bulletin, with bo requested by Deputy Attorney Gen eral Harry Irwin to furnish him with cost data regarding the Garden Island interests, so that he may compare them with figures submitted by Elmer Cheatham, the Kapaa homesteader, who has voiced objection to tho ten tative agreement botweon plantation and homesteader for the purchase of tho lattor's cane. Mr. Cheatham holds that the. home steader on Kauai, under the tentative ngrcement, would be getting too small a profit and Deputy Attorney General Irwin is desirous of ascertain ing whero the dividing line should be. The final comparison may lead to a modification of tho contract to allot greater profits to the Kauai home steaders. Thus far, says Mr. Irwin, no other complaints from homesteaders regarding profits havo boon received by tills office. :o: The Hawaiian Canneries Company closed their canning season last week with a total pack of about eighty thousand cases.

In tho agreemont proviously reached between administration officials and the plantation representatives eight tons of cano was fixed as the purchaso basis, but conditions on Kauai are such that this works to a marked dis advantage of tho small planter, it is asserted. I This objection, raised by tho Kauai homesteaders, is admitted as a Just one by some ol tho Kauai plantation men, says Assistant Attorney General Harry Irwin, who Is representing th Governor at the conference, anothor of which is to be held today. Tho assistant attorney general says ho was told by Charles Rico, a director of the Makce Sugar Company, but also an Individual planter, that he believed tho eight ton baBls was unfair to the small planter and that nine tons was tho proper basis for the Island of Kauai. Rico agreed that a five-percent de duction for trash was a fair one except when the cano was burned. Rice told tho assistant attorney general ho would supply him with some spoclflc figures ho has gathered regarding trash deductions and other cano sta tistics. Another reason- tho assistant at torney general is inclined to think tho Kauai homesteaders are right in their contention that cano should bo bought on a nine-ton basis is that this is tho amount formerly specified In tho Ma- keo Plantation Company contracts. Irwin Confident of Settlement Attorney Irwin expressed confidence yesterday afternoon that a satisfactory agreement was going to bo reached by the government between the Kauai homesteaders and tho plantations. Ho said there was no disposition on tho part of either the plantation represen tatives or the planters to make de mauds that the others could not con cede, and that probably both would make some concessions. In figures mado public yesterday by Elmer Cheatham he asserted that un der tho terms of tho present contract tho homesteader could clear annually nineteen dollars an acre, with a profit of sixty dollars for the plantation mill. The assistant attorney gcnoral has requested tho. submission of other cost estimates for tho raising and milling of a ton of sugar for uso at tho con ferences, which will bo compared with those of Cheatham's. :0: Kawaihau Notes As in all other Instances, Kawaihau docs not lack Interest in public affairs. This time It Is politics, and candidates for tho Houso aro almost anNthlck ns bullets at tho front. From Indica tions tho Republicans will havo no less than five In tho field, against ono lono Democrat, whoso chances would appoar to bo as much as tho story of the celulold dog In the hot regions. At a cattle-drlvo last wcok three aspirants for tho Houso wcro noticed to be engaged. Thoy will soon bo de voting their efforts In "roundlng up" votora. Tho Republican candidate who en dorsed tho nomination paper of a Democrat would seem to jopordlzo his popularity by so doing. It Is not usual for such expressions of brother ly lovo to bo displayed In the great game of politics. Stick to your party and remember no man can servo two parties.
