UNDOUBTEDLY there ha been a vast
amount of criticism of the reorganization ef
the'firm of H. Hackfeld & Co. effected through the
efforts of Walter Dillingham, F. J. Lowrey and J.
'. F. C. Hagens, and in all probability there will be
some satbfactipn expressed today at the fact that
this reorganization has fallen through, but it re

able to buy. while the profits will remain in the
country, available for bonds, Red Cross or any
other patriotic object to which under the law the

There has been, naturally, a great deal in con
nection with the reorganization of Hackfelds not
made known to the public. The Advertiser has
been kept apprised of the greater number of the
moves, however, and it was with the knowledge
1 that a legitimate attempt was being made to secure

tioned that a majority of the critics voiced their
opinions in pcncci goou idiui.
The Advertiser cannot but feel regret that
things have developed as they have. We .can only
hope that the new plans soon to be put into effect
will prove as generally satisfactory and as profit
able for all Hawaii as we had reason to believe the
old plans would have been.

is now working it will be the
ship space conservation and food production so
far brought into play, while it will also be a
powerful incentive towards the formation in Ha
waii of a league for the preferential buying of
local products. These Islands can be very much
more self-supporting in the matter of a food sup
ply than they are, and can come closer to becoming
independent of outside sources for food than the
majority of people believe. It is to demonstrate
this that the fair commissioners are working, and
such a work is a war work of the very greatest
If the people of the Territory take advantage of
the opportunity the first territorial fair presents,
local producers and local cosumers can be brought

to make the fair a turning point in the history of

The idea entertained by sonic that the territorial
fair is to be a squandering of public funds or an
entertainment ought to l.c revised. The fair, in
conception and in the present planning, is strictly
Utilitarian. That there will be an entertainment

the fair ought to return to the territorial taxpay- paupers to bury at public expi-iii-

to. It is a war time, busines
should be supported
in that basis.
The police department appears to have done ex-
cellent work in the speedy capture of the self
confessed slaver of Fireman McCall. We trust
the city attorney's department will do as well with
it9 handling of the case. It is not so very long ago
that a self-confeVsed murderer was able to prove
bimself not guilty.
MARCH , Mlli-
SIR ERIC GEDDES, first lord of the admiralty,
announced his conviction Yesterday that the
cruisn ana American suomarine cnasers ana des
troyers are sinking submarine as fast as tjermany
can build them, which is satisfactory as far as it
goes. It shows that the pirate scourge has been,
as Sir Eric recently put it, "met. It does not
alter the fact, ' however, that the submarines are
eating into the vitals of Allied shipping, and the
continued news from the mainland of industrial
disputes holding up the American shipbuilding in
dustry makes the situation somewhat depressing.
We must either do much more than hold our own
with the submarines or we must provide many
This necessity makes important the American
naval cooperation with the British and adds to the
satisfaction that will accompany the announce
ment of the British admiralty head that the Brazil
ian fleet will soon be in European waters to add
its strength to that of the Allies. These war
ships are not needed so far as the German fleet is
concerned. The British have had that securely
buttled up for many months and are only hoping
for another smash at it, but the additions of the
American and Brazilian fleets will enable the Bri
tish shipyards to turn their attention from the
building of more warships to the building of the
much needed merchantmen. The British ship out
put ought to be very large from now on, and it is
with the merchant ship that Germany is to be de
feated on land.
Sir Eric'a speech in tlje commons yesterday ap
pears to be mainly a reaffirmation of an address
made three weeks ago, concerning which an Amer
ican commentator wrote:
Tne MOM of Sir Erie Gedilea'. recent confident
statement on the labmarine situation is .that the U
boat Is defeated in its effort to end the war, but not
defeated aa an instrument for prolonging it by crip
pling Allied and American effort. The Germans have
failed, but stern effort is neressarj to torn the balanc
ing seal towards a positive Allied triumph. Sub
marine ale Being sunt as fast as built, but are still
destroying Allied shipping somewhat faster than it
can b, replaced.
Acceptor about 5,000,000 tons as the figure of the
world tosa in .tonnage this last year, the United States
has supplied about 900,000 tons to meet it, Great Brit
ain probably about twice that amount, and some has
been obtained from other nations and from the tak
ing over of Teutonic, vessels. The deficit ought to
be made up.
In addition, not only must the anticipated losses
of this year be met, but provisions must be made for
the growing need of shipping as American troops in
France and the need of Allies for supplies increase.
Sir Eric promises that Great Britain will soon be
building ships at a rate double that of her previous
record year, which means at the rate of over four
million tons annually. The Dominions, Japan, Scandi
navia, and other countries can supply some tonnage.
But the brunt of the tsskwill Call upon this country,
which Geddes again states can help "in no way more
than is building ships."
We must strain every nerve to do better than the
- 3,000,000 tons which the vice-president of the Bethle
hem Shipbuilding Corporation sets aa our probable
limit this year if we are to show the Germans that
the submarine is not only a partial but an utter

Announcement Uada That Brew
er & Co. Ii Flrsi To An
STATEMENT IS MADE'
- AT CHAMBER MEETING
Other Faclb; ' and 'plantations
ExpeCtCd,To Taki Slml- ."
General redoefioa in dividends paid
ont by sugar plantatloas aad agencies
to their stockholders' 1 presaged in thn
announcement made yesterday at a
meeting of the chamber "of eomaserc
that Brewer and Company .baa decided
to reduce the amount of it monthly
dividend and of any apeoial dividends
it baa beea in the habit for years of
piyinjf with regularity.
The statement wa made my Oeorge
R. Carter, who gave a his authority
E. Faxon Bishop, presideir. of Brewer
and Company. Uncertainty, as to sugar
shipment and returns therefrom, cou
pled with lnek of knowledge as to
amount of money that will be required
from Hawaii, by the federal govern
meat, was given as the reason for the
decision reached by the sugar factors.
' While the argument waa under way
tpeftfre the chamber concerning the
auestion of whether or not the chamber
should endorse the sale of 220,000
worth of territorial bonds for the build
ing of the belt road, and whether or
cot it was advisable to wait until the
federal government had made known its
specific plan a to the amount of funds
would be required from aHawail this
year for carrying nn the war, Mr. Car
ter said that-he, too, had enthusiasti
cally approved tho construction of the
road under the bond sale', but had been
surprised only a short time before to
learn that the Brewer and Company
dividends were to be reduced between
now and July 1.
Mr. Carter said he did not know
the views of the bankers concerning n
possible necessity for. retrenchment and
their views as to why it might not be
advisable at this time to undertake
the floating of -nearly $300,000 worth
ef bonds for road building, but he felt
that the decision of Brewer and Com
pany should be given to the chamber
at that time.
. The statement of Mr. Carter appear
ed to bo something of a surprise to
many sitting in the session, although
such ae tied 'has been predicted by The
Advertiser, and for a time it appeared
as IX it might eanse an adverse vote on
the, request' teJhab. ehaaaber en
i1;th. aC-tha UnUorlal-bonds
for tho belt road,
Mr. Carter nald tbat the situation as
explained by Mr. Bishop was this:
That the planters and agencies were
not certain just what amonat of sugar
or this year's crop, would go forward
to the mainland, owing to the uncer
tainty of the number ef bottoms that
the federal shipping board could fur
nish for Island necessities, and that nV
assurance had been received from the
government that the sugar situation
would be entirely taken care of. There
fore, he did not deem it wise, in view
Of the 1,700 ,000 taxes of all kinds
which Brewer and Company would be
railed upon to contribute to the govern
ment this yefcr, to pay out dividends
nnder the circumstances. These retain,
ed dividends would be held for contin
gencies -which might arise and which
nn adequate sum should be on hand to
Mr. Carter said that if island sujfnr
had to be placed in warehouses await
Ing convenience for shipment to tliii
refineries, receipts of money for sugar
would naturally be retarded, and an
much ready money aa was required for
the varied neeeasities of the commun
ity and its obligations would not be
"If it is certain that we have to
red uce dividenda, we are not so well
off as we supposed," said Mr. Carter.
It was also announced that had it not
been for a forceful appeal from the
Islands to the shipping board, the Mat
son steamship Lurline would have been
taken off the usual run between the Isl
ands aad San Francisco and placed in
the transport service, in the Atlantic,
particularly to carry war department
supplies. It was understood that the
I.urline waa a vessel admirably fitted
for thl work. Representations were
made that this steamer, owing to its
great freight tonnage was absolutely re
mured for Pacific trade, that of the
Hawaiian Islands in particular, and
the request for its withdrawal was res
