Anderson writes of Campbell:
"He baa '. been acting for himself
alone,' ind I think haa never claimed to"
represent anyone else. ' '
If wus through the efforts and aid of
Anderson that Love's Bakery hit been
aide daring the past few days to secure
suitable fruit' for bannna broad at one
cent a pound, says MvKenzie.
McKepxie ' aays Anderson, through
Chans; HoOo and other Chinese, has in
formed tha growers of the kind of fruit
which is" acceptable to the bakeries
which the Chinese growers are glad
ml nximia to sell at the old tjriee. '
The nualitv of the fruit is what U
known in the trade as "crippled
bunches," says MrKenzie. For baking
tin r noses the' bananas are as good a
nv. for the "erimded bunches" ate
klmnrv small bnnrhea Which do net
come np to the fifteen and twenty hand
.bunches required for export. Other
than being small bunches the fruit is
as good as thoVe rrom the nig uuncne,
but 6d account 01 the size are not mar.

is explained by the bakery manager,
upp T I Regular '
MeKenxie savs that another ad van
taire trained from buying this fruit, 1
sides the reasonableness of the price
ts tha regularity of the Bupply.
When be was buying the other
kind there would be days whAa
ha would have a demand for 1200 loav.r-t
of banana bread and no bananas On the
market, or sometimes plenty of bartrt
nsuTOad no orders for banana bread, be-
eauao patrons had beeu disappointed
when ordering neiore anu n was unpm
albU te fill the orders.
He points out that the use of the
small bunches is not only economical
for bread making, but also does not
lessen the export supply.
Inquiry made at the Young Bakery
brought the information that all the
bananas used which did not come from
the Young farm were still purchasec

ket, and ihat it was uot known good
fruit could be aecureu ior one ceni

Editor Advertiser Your article on
the banana situation published in the
Sunday Advertiser was of great inter
eat to me, as has been the entire move
ment tOfincrcnso the local consumption
of bananas as a war ineuHiire, and as
an effort to preserve to the Territory lib
industry which has possibilities that
have, uover beeri adequately realized
The creation of Bannna Hreud as a re
suit Of the camiMiign must have heoh
especially gratifying to every loya.1
American interested in the eonvervutioii
of cereals.
The article mentioned was of partictt
lar interest for two reasons. It in. II
rated that the continued making of ha
nana bread was throateued by a report
ed effort at profiteering through doub
ling the price of bananas to be used for
the pun e, afer the, bakers hail es
lied a .ii B for the bread based on
the price quoted thorn 'for tho banana?
during the campaign; and stated that
the banana shippers had doubled thh
price, also claiming that the publicity
given this unpatriotic move had Te
suited in the shippers modifying their
demands in an offer made by Mr
Caroj i be 1 1 to supply tHa fruit at au id
crease of fifty percent instead of one
huudred percent over the price original
ly agreed upon.
Shipper Not Guilty
This last is an error. The banana
shippers did uot fix the original price
uor dLI they raise the price. The quot
ed staremeut of the Banana Committee
to the effect that the bananas obtained
for this purKsH were purchnsod from
lift CautplHdl is correct. The price
was also made by Mr, Campbell, on' his
own behalf, and not as a representative
of the banana shippers. The increasi
demanded was also made by Mr. Cnmp
bell individually, and uot by the ba
mini shippers. The apparent assump
inn tlia' Mr. Cumjibell represented the

The results, obtained by the eomailt
e were all they claim to have achlev
id, and a splendid evidence of the pub
ic spirit ef tha community. The ear-
dees of the press, both at the time of L
na campaign, ami taier in placing mc
lew development before the public jua
U'y all Um claims the press can make
for them. Giving due credit to both
hean agencies,, let us not be unjust to
he banana shlpiers as a class, four
tfths of whom are Chinese, They
vera1 not active paties in the campaign
it in any promises made during, tha
ampalgn, and have now come forward
ind assured the bannna bread industry
if its sopply at the price with tha. orig
nal making of which they had nothing
e do, end with the raising of. which
hey had toothing to do. They have
lone this because it appesred necessarr
o a continuance' of the makinir of be
nana brel, end because, from the in-
onnatlon given in tbe press, they be
ieved the bakers had not had tha
tquare deal they were entitled to os

riven assurance, they will keep their
word to the limit of their ability. .
Your article quotes two "haole"
shippers. I consulted two ' ' aka ' '
ihippers. The results speak for them
elvasv I bopa the injustice dona to
our fifths of the banana shippers will
bo corrected, and that credit will be
riven where it is due to the shipper
hat agree to faruisb the needed sup

lay other shipper who agrees to do so
ind does it, also gets the credit due
him, and that each individual shoulder

to do his duty as America expects of
him, 'and 'when proven otherwise, let -

Pupils Drill) Despite Heavy Rains
In Hi 10 District
There has been a paper famine at the
t'apnikou School, near Hilo, to judge
by the following from the Papaikou
Vhool News:
"There was no regular Issue of the
News lust week only three typewrit
en copies- ami all on account of paper.
)ur stock is very low, so instead of
he weekly paper, the News will prob
blv appear only 'now and then.' We
rish some one could think of a plan
v which we could get a quantity of
heap paier. "
From the last issue of tha News the
ollowing interesting items are cullod:
"The pupils are again engaged in
nother activity to help the Red Cross
They are now collecting tin foil which
vill be turned over to the Red Cross
leven pounds and fourteen ounces was
lie amount collected last week. The
hird grade and intermediate made the
'argent collection, twenty-nine onuses
vhlla the eighth grade pupils came next
vith twenty six ounces, A weekly re
ort is to be kept for each grade. Bet
'cr this record next week. Conduct a
tin foil campaign,' just aa the Bed
"ross drive waa conducted, and visit
ivery home to ask for thia article.
"There has been a steady and per
(intent downfall of rain all weak. The
wet weather has prevented the usual
ranleuiug and tha .sewing claasea have
uffered arcordiagly for when the boys
o out gardening the girls sew. As s
lample of thf amount of rainfall, on
Monday thero were eleven inches of
ain iu twelve hours, add the rest of
he week was not better.
"(iovernment surveyors were busy
Friday getting the exact boundaries
of the school premises. Wbat a nice
thing it would ba if the county super
visors would think of us with an appro
printion for a fence.
"The boys have a new military in
ttruatur, Mr, Mac Donald of the Gun
'lompany, N. O. H. They received
their first drill under him on Friday in
the drluzling rain at that, too. But
'he boys did not mind it. We -hope,
however, for better weather next week

?'If it ie true that there is a seriona

the consumption of meat Dr eanita

Inst reports on the supply of eattle to
meet the eoming needs of the popnlt
tion are those which were gathered by
tha aommittea of tha territorial food

situation, and we need to know what

Mr. Horner suggests that the brew,

plan of securing this information, which
waa approved by Mr. Child, but that i

matter; -Mr Border ban taken the
stand that tha eattle ' problem of Ha
wait, ia one that involves a greater use
of. the land oi the Territory for cattle
raising and more efficient methods of
marketing. Ia - connection with this
Mr. Horner recommends a huge cold
storage plant as the solution of several
vital needs in the eattle industry of
That this matter should be annVoach
ed from tha standpoint of public ne
laeatit - r, hOwwref Itf bie belief, arid ht
therefore thinks that something .should
be done In the' matter, ' either by th
federal food administration or by the
territorial body, based opon faota and
figures of supply and demand that are
compiled rrom a survey of meat condi
tions over the entire Territory.
Mr. Horner believes that the eattle1
men would welcome such an institution
and probably would asree to finance it
if the necessity of It wea brought to
their attention In the manner he has
suggested. He believes that the rat
tlcmen 'a association baa done ranch for
the organisation of the eattle industry
but grim necessity hai heretofore play
en very muo pan.
Rangee Understocked
The storage facljitioe which thev
now have ore, sufficient only to care for
curreut consumptiori of beef, and have
not uaen at vised as a means of col
le.tive eflieiency. The ranges pf each
ranch are understocked during the good
grass months fn Order that there may
be no loss of cattle when the Door sum
mer conditions eoine. Tbe convenience
of slaughter of eowa aa a means of Dre
veutinj- their death through insufficient
fodder in the summer is denied them
on account of laek of storage facilities.
For tha same reason, many eattle are
enmeq jjasi me, lime when tbey sbouM
ic BiHugntereo. and these eattle cod
nuino tue lead that could ba devoted tb
younger cattle until they once more
reuch their maximum weight. The time
wucn tne irame of a bullock is at it
maximum and when it is no longer h
paying proposition to continue feeding
it, is between three and four years, a
fact known to cattlemen. This lis the
time, therefore,, when an animal, should
hi killed for feed, provided there arte
luttivieut storage fasilities. After
bullock haa passed this time It must
be narried along to the following Jun,
wnun us siauunier win once more de
tend upon available space for stpfage
ind market demand. Meanwhile the
ced it consumes is not expended
irolltnbly to the meat that it will takfe
n duriug that year and H also denied,
inder limited graxing conditions! to an
tner yonng cow.
Gsseotlsi 'Points
The two things that mainly inlluenee
election in tha slaughter of cows are
he need of culling out poor specimens
ind the necessity for killing in ordur
'o muke room on the rapge. The latter
.hould not, Mr. H(,rPef believes, be at
he mercy of small storage facilities.
'ow should ba killed when the proper
time arrives as apples are picked at a
ertain time. At the same time', the
market should not be given poor meat
'uttle whose condition may hava been
.taused by ill adjusted rajige condition.
It would not be meeeSaary to keep
'his href in storage for a great length
if time, he believes, but if is sstablisli
'd Unit this meat would be kept mech
longer in storage than is at pteseijt
case in Honolulu without deteriors
Mr. Horner believes that the. cotupl
tion of this data, as suggested by hiai
more than a month ago, would not take
more than ten days, and thst the cat
tlcmen will have no reason fot with

The Agsssix. a vassal of thirty two
tons net, a not large enough to.be
used extensively as a raider. Federal
officials inv. however, according to a
Han Diegn fcirhnnse. that It was the
intention of the Oe-man crew to rup
ture a Pacific mail boat running to
Panama, outfit it with heavier uune
than could be mounted on the A "it

Tbe Agassis, while lying at a berth
near the Mexican customs wharf it
Maxatlan, was suddenly changed from
American to Mexican registry. How
this could hnva been dene without tha
knowledge of the Mexican customs of

The Agnssix was than fitted np as
a German raider and allowed to sail
from Mar.atlan. flying the German flag.
At ftalina Cms a nnmber of pro
(lermans have cached a Cjiiantitv of
war munitions. Among these mnnHlons
