President Issues Appeal To

.Carry Selection To Logical End

Under the proposed provisions of
the next draft many whose physi
cal condition . will perhaps not
warrant their acceptance for ser
vice in th? army will still he call
ed upon to do their"part in the
Service of the country. If they
are not fitted for military service
but can be ttied for agricultural
or industrial " purposes and are
needed for such purposes ' they
mayibc passed and accepted. for
such 'service. ' If the' man be un-
fit, to carry a. rifle lie may still
work with a hoe and be art active
producer for the support b( those
who are able to go to France and
fight their country's battles there.
President Wilson yesterday "is
sued an appeal to call citizens for
assistance in; carrying. QUtj,, the
new military drift classifications.
The regulations for such" draft
were sent to the local boards but
were not given out . for publica
tion. The process will be com
pleted in al)out sixty days, it is
believed by officfall hi 'he' office
of the provost marshal.
President. Wilson in hisppeal
. , A i. r . . . r
said : i
"The selective draft principle
must be carried ;.throug1v to' Jts
logical conclusion and this is the
purpose of the! neV regulations
which'" have ..been , formulated.
Each-Registrant will be assigned
to his proper place in the service
of his country; to the place for
' winch' he Mound to' be best fit-.
tell. ' Those bet.firted, physically
able and otherwise of the requir
ed ability, other things being
equal, will serve", iii the army.
Others will be assigned ,t6 agri
cultural work, and still others to
industrial pursuits in which their
service may be required.'. The as
signments of tlie various men will
be to such service as through
physical ability, experience, train
ing and fitness each may W found
best qualified and thus be made
to serve the country for the com
mon good"
In the first draft many escaped
service through only slight im
pcfectinns and it is now proposed
to draft them from stme pursuit
in whiclv they may not be essen
tially needed into other pursuits
where their services may be as
useful to the nation as if they
were serving in the ranks of the
army or on the decks of the ships
of the navy. :

There Is No Shortage of Funds

"There i no ahortage of fnnds for

which ha not reached its destination.
This aon arrival due either to the

Publication of the wholeale prices

of prices ill be made daily in The Ad

Practised On Mainland
This li irt line with the pnlic.iea prac
tised on the mainland, where the food
commissioners in several tatea havf
already started o publish a duily bulls
tin of prices in the newpaper. Cali
fornia ia doing this tinder the direction
of Ralph P. Merritt, federnl food eon.
troller for, that state. The California
authorities publish the wholesale price
only, as they believe that a knowledge
of. the price paid by the retailer will
bid the consumer In refusing to pay an
unjust priee for hia commodities.
In Chicago, where the publication
system la already in force, wholesale
prices, are publihed with the aelling
( rices following them for the guidance
of the .buyere. A scale of prices is giv
en for the consumer, with the state
ment that be ahould not pay less than
the loweat or mora than the .high
est. 'Thia-ia done ia the effort to be
fair to all. , Rome retailers have higher
overhead ehargea through rendering
more elaborate service and those whose
overhead la less can sell goods at the
lower priee. .
Mar Publish Retail Pricea
If it is found feasible after more
thorough investigation, Child will pub
lish both wholesale and retail price
in hia daily bulletin. He may publish
the actual prices paid bv merchant for
the commodity in question and follow
it with the price asked by loenl mer
chants instead of endeavoring to pub
lish the prices which should be asked
in fairness to the public and the mjar
chatif. In this scay the public can bf
the judge as to whether too fnrh i
Mug asked for food materials. It will
then me in their own hands to decide
whether -tn buy . at that price -or to
lait that the merchant tower his price
until in their judgement it approximate
a rair prtre for the article in question
in comparison with the wholesale value.

Refusal of Administration To
Open Up Lands Under Law Is
Vital Question On Kauai and
Hawaii At This Time '
While the visiting eoagfeaaiona
party Is in the Hawaiian Islands it, ia
likely that member will have theif
attention called to the homeateading
laws as they nffi'. t the Territory and the
policy ,of the .reent Territorial gov
ernment in the handling of the question-Inability
on the part of would
be homeatendcr to get the government
to 0ien land nhich it la claimed
should be rt once made available fot
entry is practicnllv certain to be called
to the attention of the visitor. Ua
the ither hand it in equally probable
that government officials will take the
opportunity to ct before the senator
and representative their -side of the
Kauai Deeply Interested
Recently" the matter' of homeatead
ing public land Inn come, in for much
attention . on Kauai. A public maas
meeting was held under the auspices
of the chamber of commerce and the
question . was further discussed and
resolutions were paiwed. The conten
tion there is that homeateading has
been proved to be not only possible
of sueeesa but a coniderable success
even in the face of the difficulties
whic-h the. territorial government has
placed in the way of settlers. " There,
if not before, the chances are, the na
tional legislator will bear something
of the homestead laws as they'pply
to the Territory and the policies of the
present territorial government in deal
ing with the problem. :
Officials Disapprove Laws
. The present administration of ter
ritorial affair has made it clear that
it doe not approve of the regulations
of the present homesteading law.
Even within the last few month the
commissioner Of public land went to
Washington' tn get changes in ,he law
such as the administration desires, not
withstanding that the legislature re
fused to approve of such change. Not
approving of the law the local gov
ernment has seen fit. so far aa it ha
been able, to ignore provision of that
law so far as it could and land for the
opening of which petition were filed
in accord inre with the law are still
closed to , homeateading. Not only
re there instance of this on Kauai
but the Big Islander can point to ev
eral. All of the Islands are. m or or
less affected : by the stand-pat, do-
nothing policy that ha been continued
Lands are Valuable
It ia estimated that the. public lands
af the Territory are worth more than
9,000,000, The administration claim
that . under ; the present homeateading
law the Territory will not realise what
it should and that homeateading ha
been a failure anyway. The would-be
homesteader point to the fact that
the lands opened have not been of the
best and moat desirable tvpe for agri
culture, that d epite this, homeateading
' a proved occes, that if opened and
hometended the improvements and
the increased value will bring to the
Territory in increased valuations and
higher tnxea more than is secured
through leasing and that even if the
idministratinn does not approve of the
law, it is written on the statute liook
ind is to be followed until it has been
akauged, even if leasing be considered
y official more profitable.
Homest ending came - in for consid
eration at the last session of the legis
lature iu the form of a resolution which
tsked eongre to amend the Organic
Act so as to provide for a land eom
oiision and otherwise.' This resolution
mssed the senate and waa killed in
he house. It was after this that
t.and Commissioner Kivanburgh took
ne matter up in the national capital.
As the leases on public land are ex
iring each year, the. problem grows
nore ana more pressing so long a pre
ut policies are continued. - ,.
