( n Tuesday (ieneral Mangin won a brilliant
ictorv on tin- ( )isc-Aisiie front between Rttbi
eoitrt ami Soissons taking a number of towns and
several thousand prisoners and putting a sharp
e'bow into the line. At the same time General
llaig forced a further retirement in the l.vs sector
and further south, on the Arras sector, he forced
another i et ireinent.
Wednesday saw the launching of a British at
tack on a ri'vv front of ten miles from the An ere
Kiv'er to just north of Moyenville, taking consid
erable tetrain and a large number of prisoners be
sides gutis, munitions and supplies. Northwest
of Soissmis tbe French under General Humbert
scored gains of considerable importance and in the
vicinitv of Hray the . Mlies made other progress.
Thursday marked one of the most important
gains of the week, the taking of Albert, the key
stone of the German defenses to the north of the
Soiume and high ground east of there was taken
which resulted ultimately, .on Saturday in the fall
of lirav. htfom Lassignv, on the southwestern
curve of, the battle front. GeneraT Humbert had
driven a vM'cfe 1 set ween the artuies of the crown

the i-'orest of St. (iobain, an advance that indi

Reaping the Whirlwind
WHF.N' one considers the crimes, the attroei
ties, the barbarities and the nameless bru
talities that have been committed by the land and
the sea forces of Germany against the Allies and
their peoples a recognition comes that the nature,
the instincts and the characteristics that have
tolerated, permitted, .'oimtenanced and encourag
ed such courses are such that, once aroused, they
pass bevond control. They are bound to react
against the nation itself, against the people at
home, and such is the fact. A recognition of this
is even now beginning to seep into the slow Ger
man mind.
War has caused an increase of crime and de
pravity among the German people, according to
an analysis published by the Berlin Vorw'aerts.
The paper recalls that at the beginning of the war,
prophets spoke of a "steel bath" ir the waters of
w hich the morals of the German people would re
cuperate. "Since August 4. 1914," says the Yorwaerts.
"we ltave allowed the blessings of this bath to act
on us with steadily increasing vigor and the re
sult is a moral condition of health of the German
people of which the compilations of criminal sta
tistics give convincing reports. These tell us of
the steadily increasing number of crimes of bru
tality, and serious crimes against property and a
glance at any newspaper confirms the horribly in
creasing number of robberies and burglaries in
tht cities and as well as in rural districts. Sys
tematically organized and methodically operating
bands of robbers menace continually life and prop
erty of 'respectable' citizens.
"Also honesty of the latter has suffered a per
ceptible "crack" and here the influence of the steel
bath s directly proved. We do not fear that at
present there probably are few German subjects
left who have not in some more or less serious
manner . iolated the existing government decrees
and laws and made themselves liable to punish
ment." The Yorwaerts. then cites the instances of the
citizen, who on Sundays goe to the country to buy
food for hoarding purposes, of the proud wife of
the owner of a large estate, whose chickens "lay"
eggs only for a mark apiece, of the wife of the first
lieutenant who sells the food articles received from
her husband at the front at fancy prices and the
army of usurers, secret traders and forgers.
The Yorwaerts then dwells on the effects of
the steel bath on the growing generation and cites
complaints by the clergy and teachers to show that
depravity i one of its results.
The paper calls attention to what it describes
a the "fruits of the best education as shown dur
ing the Kadek Heriistnrff libel case." It adds:
"When refined cavaliers of the most prominent
society apply the most common names to each
other and box each other's ears, then no one has
the right to claim for one certain class, decency
and well behavior.
"The steel bath exerts its effects on everyone
and splashes over the home of the proletariat as
well as over the playroom in the family of the
count." concludes the Berlin publication.

Keep Up Production
TIIM decision which must shortly be reached
as to the price to be established for sugar
during the coming year is of momentous import
ance not only to the sugar industry itself, but to
the welfare of the nation as a whole. Kvidence
steadily accumulates that the production, of sugar
in the I'nited States will continue to decline un
less a wholesale price is set that will cov er 'the
rapid increase in costs of production and stimu
late the industry to overcome the many other diffi
culties by which it is faced. The labor shortage,
the lack of fertilizer, and the aggressive campaign
being waged to extend other crops which are less
severely restricted in the matter of price, as well
as the mounting cost of materials and labor, are
handicaps against which the domestic sugar in
dustry must contend.
1'ndcr existing conditions, with the sugar ra
tion limited to less than halt the normal rate of
consumption, no argument is necessary to prove
the importance of maintaining the home produc
tion ol sugar. It would be a poor service to con
sumers lo throttle the progress of American sugar
production and to decrease still further the avail
able supply jn order to effect a possible saving
winch at the most can amount to onlv a few cents
a year m the case of each individual. It is safe to
say that every consumer would prefer a situation
m which he could obtain three or four pounds of
sugar at twelve cents a pound to one in which he
was limited to two pounds at nine cents - Facts

Sergeant At Shafter Reprimand
ed, But Charge of Maltreat
ment Is Not Sustained
Maltreatment of a Japanese draftee
af Honnmu, Hawaii, now a member of J
the First Hawaiian Regiment at Fort j
Hhafter, ia complained of in the Japa ;
nese newspapers, which allege that .
Sergeant S. Onaki of Company D, ex 1
reeded his authority, but an invextiga- j
tion held by Colonel W. R. Riley, com
tnaader of the regiment, developed
that there wns no assault, but n simple
case of ejection of the draftee from
the company kitchen.
Inasmuch as the case aroused so
much interest, and the publication of
the matter in the Japanese press caused
eonaldernhle adverse coih'inent to jbC
made in the Japanese colony, an in
vestigatinn followed, resulting in the
reprimand of Ozaki by the battalion
It developed however, that there wns
nn maltreatment and nn brutality, such
as was intimated nor did the sergeant
exhibit any qualities which would serve
to cause his demotion. On the other
hand, it was found that the sergeant
was in the exen ise of his dutv in or
dering the ninn from the kitcfien, hut
possibly did exceed his powers when
he caused the Hnnouin drnftee to move
along faster by shnvhig him. The
shoving did not stop until the drnftee
found himself outside of the kitchen.
Higaki is the drnftee from the Big
Island. As snnn n the incident wns
over and he had opportunity to come
to town he complnimd to the Hawaii
"hinpo, which carried n story of nn
"unwarranted assault "

As soon as Colonel Riley's attention
wns directed to the incident he caused
the inv est igntinu to be held, and savs
that he wns informed there was no
astaiilt whatever and the publicity
given the matter was unwarranted.
Sergeant O.aki is declared by the
lending officers of the regiment to be
an able man, and was one of the first
of the young Japanese in Honolulu
to join the Japanese compnny when it
was enlisted in the Hnwaiinn National
Guard last year. He was also a mem
ber of the Second Reserve Officers'
Training Camp at Schofield Barracks,
but did not qualify for appointment
ns a commissioned officer.
In reporta received here from variou
sections of Oahu it ia stated, that thero
is more tarn being planted thia year
than at any one time for n long period.

Over in Kalihi quite a numheV of ri
patches hiwe been replanted with tanj.
According to the report of the terri
torial marketing division there ia now
a regular fever of planting taro and
the hulis are very scarce and expensive.
The report says that whea taro ia pull

the side of the tuber which are thrown
