Appointed in expectations several times.
How About Lane
What action will be taken by the
secretary of interior when he reaches
Washington cannot be forecast. The j
need for fertilizer to keep up produc
tion waa clearly set forth to him.
HhaTtage of fertilizer would not be
aeverelv felt in next year's crop but,
unless it be speedily relieved, the 1'20
crop will be serimisly reduced. The
1919 crop ia in good shape, so far as
fertiliration has gone, for the reason
that it had been pretty well cared for
before the supply gave out. With the i
2920 crop it would be different. That
requires the use of fertihrer during th
present summer and autumn.
Figures, gained by comparison of the
yields of fertilized and unfertilized
fields, have been recently prepared by;
the Planters' Experiment Station and
these show that the loss through inabil
ity to fertilize the soil would be even
greater than haa been published. The
Kxperiment Htation finds that the dif
ference in the yield is not far from
fifty percent, and proortionate where
the supply is inadequate,
largest Hit Hardest
In ease of a continuance of the fail
ure of the supply of nitrates, it would
be the larger producers, plantation
like Hawaiian Commercial, Oaho, Ewa,
Waialua, Maui Agricultural and Wai
luku that would be the hardest hit, aot
the plantations whose yields are small
er in total or per acre, and this ia evi
dent by merely rutting yield figure in
Not only would a failure to secure
fertilizer mean a smaller supply of
sugar to the oimumer ; it would mean
inability to produce at a profit for many
of the plantations. If the yield per
acre in cane is reduced bv halt' and the
cost of cultivation remains the same,
less cunt of fertilizer, it is evident tie
profit on the half production would
cost nearly as muck as would a full
crop. One agent said that without a
supply of fertilizers some of the plan
tations would not earn enough to pay
their taxes.
Drought Still Felt
1'nder best conditions the 1919 crop
will not be ho large as it might have
been but for the drought of last year.
Toung cane was killed and much had to
lrt planted again. While the shortage
will Hot be so serious as that which
resulted to this year's crop from the
drought, it will be appreciable. Fer
tilizer is absolutely necessary to bring
a profitable crop for the following crop.
How the drpartuwnt of agriculture
is making out uith its effort to uptly
the farmers of the country with nitrates
is told in the Weekly News letter re
reived here on the la.it mail.
Government Efforts
The work of transporting and dis
tributing to farniori the nitrate pur
chased by the government for ferti
lizer use is proceeding us rapidly as
possible, despite unavoidable transKr
tut ion difficulties due tit unexpected
v.ar demands for shipping, according to
a statement issued by the I'nited
states department of agriculture.
It was originally cointcmptnted that
the 1UUMM) tons of pounds esi h
of nitrate purchased under the prow
hions of the food control act would be
delivered at Atlautic i.orts at the rate
of something over i!t,000 tons per
mouth, beginning in January At that ,
time it appeared that deliveries coald
be timed in such a way that all appli
cants would receive, w lieu needed, prac
tically the full amount of their orders,.
1'nfortanately, on account of unexpect
ed war demands for shipping, it wus
impossible for the shipping board to
assign vessels at the rate contemplated
la the circumstances it became news
sary for the department to modify its
plans cf distribution.
Stnargaucx Dlatrlbators Appointed
lu order to meet the changed situs
tioa, emergency distributors were up

w-n given because of the higher in

presence of raider divers off the Atfan-

It hardly appeared likely that if the '
international sugar committee were to

itig sugar production, which will be the
ra&iuui for the increase in orice when
it dees come, it would maka the to- '

for the early needs. To date 21,530
tons have been unloaded at Havanuall,
Charleston, and Wilmington, and of
this amount, mure than 17,000 tons
have actually been shipped to farmers.
On account of port conditions the rail
roads liu v not yet been able to move
approximately L'L'5 tons for which ship
ping instructions have been given. The
200(1 tons remaining on hand will he
moved out in the very near future.
Two ships carrying approximately 1(1,
000 "tons will be discharged this week
at Mobile and Norfolk, and five addi
tional ships, with a total tonnage of
2i,.ri00, are on their way to Chile for
loading, and will discharge the greater
part of their cargoes during May. A
sixth skip of 70(MI tons uet weight has
been tentatively assigned for carrying
nitrate, making a total of approxi
mately '-,0011 tons which have actual
ly been delivered in this country or
or which transportation arraiigeui.'Uta
have bcu made. The Uepartm.-'it haa
assurauee that the reJuaiuder of the
(SKI tou contracted for will cue
forward us speedily aa possible. I'u
fortunstrly the Keutra, soe of the
ships assigned to move agricultural ui
trate, was wrecked off the coast oi
Chile just prior to loadiuf.
Steps Taken To XxpedlU Shipment
The unavoidable difficulties encount
ered, due, as indicated, to unexpected
war demands "for shipping, have beu
, very great. It is believed, however,
tkat the arrangements which have been
made will enable the department sub
Maiitiallv to meet the onlers receive!
from farmers up to February 4, the
date upon which the receipt of appli
cations was closed. Ju the absence of
absolutely unavoidable developments,
it is believed that all the nitrate con
trailed for will be secured. Mujue of
it mav not be received in time to be of
use this spring, but it is contemplated
that the greater portion of it will be
delivered to farmers iu time to serve
their purposes Any reprcses tations to
the contrary are au arras ted aud mi
leading. The department has taken
every possible step to hasten deliveries
from Chile and to expedite the ship-
iient to farmers of nitrate from ports
of distribution in the I'uited Htate.

and the higher price would prevail for
Western beet and Louisiana -eaue in
the Western and Southern states, while
present prices would remain undis

known that very atrong protests will
be raised in trade circles against the
adoption of any such plan as this, on
account Of the confusion that it would
involve and the claim of discrimination
to which it inevitably would give rise.
It Is believed, therefore, that when Mr.

Call of Draft Will Increase and

Physical Defects and Gambling
Proclivities Do Not Hurt For
Work In Fields
One thousand men nre needed on the
sugar plantations of the Territory. This
Tho present need grows from the tak
ing of the national guardsmen and their
induction into the service of the I'ni
ted States.
Although the worker in the enno field
is regarded ns a man engaged in nn es
sential industry and as such is entitled
to a deferred classification, he has been
so classified only when he claimed ex
emption and not placed in' such clas
as n matter of course by the draft
boards. This fact explains the largo
number Of plantation laborers whose.
i names nre nppenring in lists of draftees
published in The AJvertiser.
Few are Exempted
It would appear that this matter
may have been in iso nderst ood by the
planters for iimong the agents here the
opinion has prevailed that the draft
would not "hit" tin- plantations pro
portionately hard with the calling of
the guard. Had the plantations desir
ed to hold their workers nnd taken the
necessary steps they miyht have done
I so by claiming exemption for their
held workers. Now
