Compulsory Rationing "
IN both houses of congress there i pending a
bill which when passed will practically put all
Americans on rations. The bill wu introduced in
tne house by Representative Lever of South Caro
tina and in the senate by Senatoi Porrterene of
Ohio. While aimed primarily; at restaurants',
hotels and eating places and retail dealers It
contains Jhe words "other persons' sa that it pro
vides, practically, that any one in thisicountry
may be limited as to food. ,'r . ,
One of the results of the -proposed bill will be
that money will not buy more ,; than a certain
amount of food. The meal of the man" who can
pay $10 for his dinner will be no larger than that
of he who tan pay only fifty cents to a dollar. His
food can be more expensive, but hot largr, in
quantities. On the mainland one may obtain ter
rapin, wood cock, canvassback duck, quail, par
tridge or other high priced foods but the quantity
served to the individual cannot exceed : a given
amount, no matter how much he is willing to pay
for a larger beef steak or another cut, of roast i
This provision of the bill will tend to make food
conservation far less. unpopular with the.masses.
The man of limited means may now complain and
assert it is useless for him to economize in food
when the man of wealth can buy, consume or
waste even, as much as he wishes. When Mr.
Average Man or Mr. Common' People knows Mr.
Magnate and his family are restricted in quanti
ty of food consumed just as he is, then will he
bear his war burdens with a cheerfulness he has
notrVet known.

Japanese fish dealers have agreed among them
selves to place, a maximum price for fish at twenty-five
cents a pound. -While this is better than
the robber prices charged on recent meatless days,
it is not good enough. By the elimination of the

in Honolulu at an average of fifteen cents a pound.

aero Hotel Street from .the' cepjtol,
it J learned from a letter seat by Jhe
chairman of the Fair' Commission to
James Henderson, the Hawaii commis
sioner, and by bim given to the Hilo
Tribune. Chairman James B. Dough
erty is planning to fekjee off the mauka
half or tne capitoi grounds, using me
Ewa side for the livestock and poul
try, and the Waikiki'aide for conces
sions. Miller Street would be closed
betweea Hotel and Beretama Streets
and this would enclose the Armory,
quartermaster's storehouse and signal
corps storeroom the latter faring on
Hotel Street togetner witn at mucn or
Miller Street and the government land
adjoining the University Club as can
be obtained or is needed.
The buildings could be used for agri
cultural, commercial, art, and other ex
hibits and the grounds as thought fit
bv the commissioners. It would be
impossible to clone Hotel Street, on ae
count of the car line, and the fair would
thus be divided into two parts.
It is understood a meeting is to be
held within the next few days which
will bo- attended by the ehairman of
the fair commission, the secretary and
all those from whom it will be neces
sary to obtain consent for the use of
the property desired and auch meeting
would have been held last week exeept
for the absence of the superintendent
ot public works. ,

Estimates As To Dredging
Cost Can Be Had
Preliminary soundings are being made
by the Bishop, Estate engineer to de
termine what, it would cost to make
additional fillings of land owned makai
of th Kakaako district.
The point where th Bounding are
being nade is adjacent to a iorty-acr
tract which waa filled in by' dredging
by the, Bishop Estste several year ago.
There are in all about eighty acres i a
tbia tract owned by the.estate, which.
extends out to to . recr, .or neany, a
half mile from where - the land waa
filled in' previously.
This tract of land . i located on th
Walkiki sics of. the municipal pump
ing station. The usual fill required is
about four feet above mean tide and
six feet from the sea bottom.
George Collins, the Bishop Estate en
gineer, saya th' Bounding now being
made are purely preliminary to ascer
tain what the coat of additioaal dredg
ing and filling would be. A to wheth

Wall Tell Story
From the walls there blazoned forth
the names of the great missionary lead
ers responsible for the gospel movement
in Hawaii, and the names of the former
pastors of Kawaiahao Church, while
above unbolt tered and koa-panelled se
parate pews gleamed in letters of gold
upon marble tablets the nsmes of sov
ereigns of Hawaii the Kamehamehas
and the Kalakaua's who had been mem
bers of the church- and who had listened
from Kamehameha IV to and including
Liliuokalani, to Rev. Mr. Parker give
worda of wisdom to their subjects.
Kings and queens were many who had
liatened to his sermons Kamehameha
IV, Queen Emma, Kamehameha V, King
i.unaiuo, i-nnceBS Kuth, King Kalakaua,
Queen Kapiojani, Queen Liliuokalani,
the Prince Contort and the array
of royally titled relutivea and notables
of the eourta. And here, alto diplomat
and representatives of foreign countries
gathered on great occsaiona, for Ka
waiahao Church in the older daya waa a
Hawaiian Westminster Abbey. The
roysl dead have lain there in stste and
over their bodies the benediction of
the church was given by Mr. Parker.
With the tablets all aglcam it seem
ed as though those whose names stood
out in rehef from them were there to
listen to the pastor's final worda in
Hawaiian, just aa they had been, and
among them were the names of Rev.
Hiram Bingham, Rev. B. W. Parker,
father of the retiring pastor; Rev. Eph

pastor iu l83 asd to whose position
Mr. Parker succeeded.
