VrVX1 V,r M.,,"! Year's Croo Rehulrider of
Provost Marshal General Crow
der To'Be Asked Whether Gov
ernment Wants Sugar Or Men
.i -
Plantations Already Seriously
Crippled By Shortage of Labor
Caused By Previous Calls
If there is to be ony furthei
tension of the draft calls in the
w i i H n Islands for army service
food (intiiit of the islands must noevs
snrily lie cut down, for thin rrawm
the selective draft service hero will put
the proposition siinrelv up to the
provost marshal general at ashington
to nsceitain whether the federal gov
eriinietit wants fno. or soldiers from
the Territory. Both can not he iven.
It oni"t lie either one or the other.
Thin was one of the most important
development of the conference yestcr
day of the men who ore handling tht
diflft work on nil the Islam!, the
statement 1 1 . 1 1 1 n made that if more of
the unskilled laborers re ,nH( jrn
serviie. the food production industries
will he materially affected, and only
by a substitute class of Inlmr imported
into the Islands can the island indus
trie and food production in that event
ht maintained.
There is an apparent conflict between
the desires of the gov ernment. one de
partment asking that men he supplied
for TIH) service and the other that
food production hp kept up in un
diminished quantities.
Hawaii, which has already given
nearly !KMI men for army and nnvv
service, of whom between 4500 anil
50IM1 were drawn from the plantations,
has heen crippled already in the avail
aide labor for sugar, pinenpple and
riee plantations, and according to state
menu made by the rhoirmen of each
of the local draft hoards of Oahu, Ha
waii, Maui and Kauai, the future food
production possibilities are endangered.
It is anticipated, according to state
meats made by C'apt. H. (Joinling Field,
selective draft officer, and C. H. Cooke,
chairman of local draft board No. 1
of Honolulu, thaf between .'!.r.O00 and
45,0(10 men will he registered under
the "Man Power Act," of men be
tween eight and twenty one and thirty
two and forty five years of ae. If
these are heavily drawn upon tear addi
tinnal quotas, the industrial life of
the Islands will be seriously menaced
this being the expressed opinion of
representatives of Mnui, Hawaii and
Kauai particularly.

New Figure Applies To Next
Year's Croo -- Remalrtder of
This Year's Continues "At 6.055
With the receipt by E. T). Tenney,
president of the Hawaiian Sugar Plan
ters' Association, yesterday morning, of
a cablegram frnir. J. W. Waldron,
chairman of the special 'committee
which went to Washington with the
data for the cost of sugar production
here, announcing the price of the 1919
sugar crop as 7.2S cents a pound, it
decisively sets nt rest anv uncertainty
as to next year's price for raw.
It i Mated that the balance of the
19IH crop will continue at the present
price of fl.0.15 cent a pound.
The new price for next rear's crop
is 7.2 cents per pound, an Increase of
1.225 cents per pound nr S4.!W a ton.
I'nder this new schedule Hawaii's 1919
crop will sell for fM.Vfifl a ton. as
"-s;nst the present price of $121.10,
which, based ou a 1919 production of
800,000 tons, represents in increase of
1 14,700,000 oyer this vear' total.
The following statistic compiled hy
A. M. Nowell, manager of the 8iifa
Factors' Company, give an iden of the
difference between present and new
prices for next year:
Ou the granulated sugar basis per
ton the new price to the refined will
he tlHO. while the old price was t!.0,
inl(in? a difference of fctO per ton: hy
the 100 pounds the tivrnres would be
9, t SO and I..10. The two iercent
discount for the growers will amount
to fiO on the new price, as com
nared to $'', on the old or present price,
leaviip; a difference of sixty cents:
while bv the 100 pounds the discount
figures would he eighteen cents, fifteen
cents and three cents.
This means that the refiners will re
ceive net cash $170.40 for 1919, in plnce
of the present prices of 1147 per ton.
an advance of $29.40. This gives the
refiners a maririn of ::(!. HO a ton, in
stead of the old price of $2.".9l, a dif
ference of 4.90.
The real basis as fixed by these
figures for the ijrower is 14.1. (ill per
ton for the 1919 crop, in place of
121 .141. the present rate, making an
advance in the price of sugar per ton
of 24..".0.

Industrial Crisis Impends
While the morning session gave the
board members opportunity to learu
from racli other methods of handling
dependency rases, and strike a general
average iu the methods to be followed
in couueetion with the registrations t.)
' come, the afternoon session was by
far the more important, t'or it devel
oped the fact that if the government
calls additional draftees, and the strict
interpretation of the ruling with re
gard to unskilled laborers followed, the
i Territory will face an industrial crisis.
I The coafereace unanimously tackled
1 n.l ;.. ...! t.. u,iurliii
IUC lUUU-MI a"'l u m . m
exactly what the Washington govern
ment desires of the people of the Ter
ritory. Provost Marshal General Crowd
er's advice will he sought, iu advance
of the rejfiatratioa.
C. R. Hemenway, speaking on the
unskilled labor situation, said that on
July lit. 1917, bv actual count the la
bore on plantation in the Tarritutv
numbered 42.000. and on July ::i. 19'V
i'iiiiibe-e l appro-imatelv .'Hi, 400, and
that betweeu 4000 and 5000 plaiiftion
laborers are now iu the army, leaving
an acute shortage of labor.
The question, in his mind was, "un
skilled, or not, the laborers in cane,
pirraple and rice are necessary farm
t'iborers to ll'iwaii " He believed the
"otional in'ent is to maintain the pro
luctiou of food stuffs.
He referred to a proposed ileferrinif
of n draft call on the mainland until
after the harvest be cared for, but
his could not cover the situation in
Hawaii where harvests are being taken
off all the vear around. He read part
if an article appearing in a mainland
uhlicatiou announcing a proposal to
'eclniru skilled labor from the army
and place U back In the necessary in
dustries. I
Something Must Be Done !
W. H. Smith, of Hilo, said that as
things are now on Hawaii, somet hi ng I
must be done to preserve the labor sup
l, either within the regulations or
through securing some exceptions. The I
n In nt a t ions of Fast Hawaii are hard
hit by recent draft calls. It had been I
suggested that an extended furlough
''or laborers called to the Colors in fu
ture might be secured, but this would
not do much good. A majority, being
Fihpiiio, would nut work under those
onilit ions. Mreociy rnipinns w no
were uot drawn into the army in the
-eccnt draft are greatly dissatisfied
'iccaiisc thev were left beWind anil
Hive to be driven by the lunas. The
esult i that labor s already badly
lisoriiani.cd. The situation resolves
itself into a need for a change in the
regulations to exempt plantation labor. I fving theii ie
or an effort to secure some new lab.u i' ,.(.,., ,,) , i
supply possibly Chinese.
W. H. Rice, of Kauai, felt it was
up to the district board to communicate
with General Crowder on the laboi sit
uatiou. The people here were patriotic
enough and willing to serve, but thev
must also keep up s steady agricjilt in al
output, ami maintain the "mini he
hiud the army." It is Ins iinnna
seriuus proposition ou Kauai, he said,
and the island is running, short bv sev

General Blocksom, commander of the
Hawaiian depart aicnt, is seeking a
means to discharge from the First and
Second Hawaiian Regiments several
draftees a. .ens wuo were improperly
inducted into the army, but so far has
not arrived at just the method by
which this can be done.
It has been ascertained that in the
registration and classification of aliens,
put ticularly those of Japanese birth,
many were classified although the reg
istrants understood, in thejr own miu.is,
that they had claimed exemption or
stood upon their own rights as aliens,
which automatically gave them defer
led classification or exemption from
military service.
( olonel H. C. .Merriam, chief of staff
nf the Hawaiian Department, said that
since many of these men were brought
into service, complaints have reached
their comuiundeis, aud So oil to the de
partment headquarters, that they did
not understand the questions put to
them by registrars and members of
local draft boards, and found them
selves culled into military service,
which was uot in accord with their
" These men, of course, reached our
mobilization camp with their papers
api'tirentlv in proper order," said Col-
I Merriam yesterday. "After
reaching us, if we found they were
physically qualified, all we had to do ,
was to muster them into serviee.
Are Not Offenders
"Now, these men claim they are im
pmperly in service. If man com nuts
an offense in the army he ean he tried
by a court, and if the evidence war
rants, can be dismissed the service.
Hut here are men who have committed
no offenses, and yef have uo right to
be iu the army. There is no charge
ii"-iinst the draftees, who are thus
placed in a peculiar position, hut the
nrmy does not want to curry as sol
fliers any men who have been improp
crly brought into the servlse. '
The same matter was discussed yes
terday morning at the draft conference
at the capitol, and it is agreed sow
among the local board members that

of tha world series. Vaughn ' iDasd
proved too macn for tire Red. Soxat

Chicago's defense glittered with bril
liant plays. The most spectacular of
the dry was when Leftflelder Mann
ran up the far, steep embankment at
the ood of the left garden aftor Nailer's
long fly. As Mnn turned to get the

Mitchell sent his beet bet Into the
box to lay. Vaughn, the big southpaw,
wae at bit best. He never faltered and
he held the Bed Box saXe all the way
through the fast nine Innings the game
went, for it was one of the speediest
world series contests ever played.
Vaughn allowed Boston but live hits, I
no two coming in the same inning, so
well scattered did he keep them, and j
only one going for an extra base. He ;
walked but one man and struck out i
four, besides fielding ft perfect game, I
handling his three assists without I
trouble. Jones, the opposition pitcher, j
secured the only walk allowed by
Almftger Barrow depended on his ;
young star, Jones, to deliver the goods, I
but the young fellow failed him in this
particular. Chicago touched him fpr
even (lean hits, two of which were
doubles which scored Chicago's runs.
Jones was erratic at times, walking
five men, and at others he pitched per- j
feet ball, striking oat six hatters. He
also fielded his position well, getting
one putout and three assists. Like
Vaughn, he failed to recure a hit him
self. Jones fanned Vaughn three times
arid ri ck. Deal snd Merkle each fell
victim to his shoots once during the
Vaughn struck out fltrunk twice, snd
Hoooer snd Schann once each. Jones
walked Fleck twice, and Hoilccher,
Merkle and Pr.skert once each.

Tfre nana was errorless and Chicago
forced Pnt0T to do great fielding
work, aa shown by the six putout s in
te Red Sox ou1 field and their two as
sists, plus the eight infield assists, while
the Cubs got but two putouts in the
outfield rnd seven assists in the In
field, Hcllocher and Vaughn getting

for exemption he may be inducted into
