HackfeW Agencies Being Trans
ferred Rapidly As Meetings
To Vote Changes Are Held
I.lhiie plantation stockholders met at
the offices of the American Factors Co.,
Ltd., yesterday morning and voted to
authorise the directors to transfer their
agency from Haekfeld A Co. to the new
corporation. It developed that Lihue
had no contract with Haefield at all,
but, owing to the eloae relationship ex
lating between the two corporations in
the glorious "used to be," had rocked
along merrily with only a verbal under
standing. There will be a elgned con
tract with the American Factors
Stockholder, of Koloa Sugar ComPa
ny held a meeting shortly afterward
and took identically the same course,
the directors being authorised and in
strueted to make a contract with the
American Factors.
In the afternoon Kekaha JRugar Com
pany stockholders met and followed
suit. Waiaea Hugar Company, which
merely had a selling agency agreement
with Haekfeld, took the name course,
voting that its directora aign np with
the new corporation,
Today a meeting of Makee Sugar
Company will be held. This corporation
alao had only a selling ageaey under
standing with Haekfeld, and this will
in all likelihood, be transferred to the
new corporation. Haekfeld A Co. were
supposed to own one share over a con
trol in Makee, but under the terms
of agreement at the time of the trans
fer of the stock that control has never
amounted to much.
Oeorne Wilcox, owner of Grove Farm,
waa aaked to aign up with the new cor
oration but refused. H,e explained af
terward that he waa thoroughly in ac
cord with the reorganisation of Hack
felds, but that neither Hackfelds nor
anybody else had ever required him to
aign an agency contract, and he was
too old to start in now. It waa evident
that he preferred working with the new
corporation on the old linea which he
had followed for many yeara. The mat
ter waa paaed over to today.

Water Ooiztg Ta Waste
There is an immense amount of wa
ter in the great swamp of the high ta
ble land of the island which the Gov
ernor believea can be made available
for irrigation. The main queation ia
that of expense. Nothing ran be done,
however, he says, until complete data
is available as to quantity. Governor
McCarthy thinks that the water from
thia great swamp ami from the many
streams that flow out of it and run
to waate in the wi could easily be
drawn into a great ditrh that could
be constructed, ami carried either to
government lands on the north and
east side of HahHlei or to those on the
other side, as might seem more ilesir
able and practicable. Thousands of
acres of laml could thin be made avail
able for homenteHding. lie says.

Board of Trade Wants Quick
Action To Prevent Suffering
Among Families of Soldiers
Hilo's plan for looking after depend
ent relativea of guardamen called into
the nation 's service, aome report of which
haa been published in The Advertiser,
is a fairly ambitious one. Tha Tribune,
of the Crescent City, gives tha follow
ing, detaila of the meeting of tha Hilo
board of trade at which the matter
waa considered. Tha Tribune 'a report
"By unanimous vote of thoaa pres
ent at the board of trade meeting held
yesterday, (Friday) it waa decided
aomething must be done at onoe to take
rare of the wives aad children of
drafted men. A resolution introduced
by H. B. Mariner was adopted to the
following effect:
"The Board of Trade of Hilo re
quests Senator 8. L. Desha and Mr.
Joha T. Moir, both aow in Honolulu,
to interview Governor McCarthy and
ask him to assist ia setting aside a
piece of land at Waiakea npon which
a temporary home for wives and de
pendent children of men in the United
States service, both Army and Navy,
can be takea care of. Also the Govern
or ia requested to utilise some portion
of his contingent fund of 75,000 to aid
in the establishment of the home. That
Messrs Moir and Desha should be au
thorised te solicit subscriptions was also
embodied ia the resolution.
H. L. Rosa Outlines Flan
"The whole matter was brought to
the attention of the board by G. H.
Vicars, president. The preaident point
ed out that Homer L. Rosa, at a prev
ious meeting, had outlined briefly a
scheme whereby be thought something
might be done to establish a home of
some sort for orphans and others left
destitute, or at leaat ia precarious cir
cumstances, with the departure of the
bread winners for the front.
"Mr. Vice re called upon Mr. Ross to
outline hia scheme and the well known
attorney did ao in a very clear fashion.
He said that the Home Service Corps
had discovered some eases of hardship,
where a draftee had been the sole sup
port of orphan children and where the
youngsters were deprived of their
brother who had kept them for some
years. He declared that there would
be many other cases and that his idea
waa to have some kind of an institution
in which the wives and children of the
men now with the colors should feel
safe. Mr. Ross did not go into details,
but he hinted at circumstances that
might arise where women were left
alone ia the homes they have been oc
cupying with their husbands up till the
time of the draft.
Delays Iue Itabte
"The speaker pointed out that al
though the government would pay sal
aries to the men in the army and
allowances to the women and children
left behind, it would take time to get
things running smoothly and that it
might mean from two to three months
until the families could get the money.
"So far, the Home Service Commit
tee in Kast Hawaii knows of seven
wivea who are left behind. There are
eighty-six children who must be classed
as dependents through the fact that
their fathers, brothers, unclea and oth
er male relatives, who have been sup
porting them for years past, have been
taken by the draft.
"Mr. Ross said that he had talked
with C. H. Will, the well known con
tractor and builder, and that the latter
had offered to draw up specifications
nd plana, do all the figuring, purchase
the neceasary materials and construct
a building where needed at actual cost
with ten percent allowed for overhead
chargea. A rough estimate made bv
Will showed that he thought the build
ing required could be erected for about
"Mr. Will spoke to the meeting anil
said that he would not be looking for
anv profit whatsoever and added, priv
atnlv afterwards, that he f"lt sure
that be could come down a lot in the
orice, aa he was certain that lie could I
obtain the necessary materials at cost i
from the firm that handle the things
Waiakea Settlement
"Mra. W. H Smith spoke briefly nn
the subiect of having the Wniakea
Social Settlement take up the task
of caring for the dependents in tern
porary houses near the head'iuarters
of the hall. Hlie said that the children
rould attend the kindergarten while
the mothers did their home work.
" D. McH. Forbes spoke on the Waia
kea Settlement idea and said that the
Aaaoclation might be able to do some
thing. Personally, Mr. Forbes declared
that he would do all possible to help,
but he pointed out that the Social Set
tlement exchequer was empty and that
assistance would be needed.
"Mr. Forbes also pointed nut Ihst
the plantations were doing all possible
for the families of the drafted men. He
declared that the wives could walk into
the dentation stores nnd there obtain
creilit in the av of food and clothing
to a reasonable amount each mouth.
"It was after i. me discuKsiiin th'
the motion of II B. Mariner whs put
and carried. President Vicars will ge
into communication with Senator Deshn
nnd Mr. John T Moir and will advise
the two Hilo men of the action taken
by the board of I rade. "
