Increaaed Home Consumption '
The War baa brought abont increased
prosperity for a large element of the
community nad has added very greatly
to the purchajting power of the con-

increased in response to tbe increased
purchasing power. But sugar is used,

products that the demand is multiply-

Geographical Complications
An additional factor which compli
sates our sugar situation is the physical
fiii tor of the geographical extent or
our country. It is possible that there
amy be an oces of sugar in the couu

seeie shortages in particular localities
far away from centers of litribution.

brought from distant places if the ile

George II, Fairchild, formerly man
ager of thoyMakee Sugar Conrfiany, pn
Knunl, and for several years a factor
in the development of the sugar in
dustry in the . Phi)jppiue,s,, has just
been appoikteil a representative of the
Hugnr Cqaaliaatiea Board for the
Philippines, aad will have much to do
with the plans for the shipment of
PhJlppThes Sugars to the outsids mar
kets. He , as also congratulated by
the governor-general for the work he
has done to promote the interests of
the archipelago.
A despatch from Washington dated
Kept ember 7, relating te tbe plana for
the movement of sugars from the
Philippine archipelago, 'soys that ar-
raogsuicuts -have been made for the
assignment of "-tonnage to forward E5,
000 tons of muscovados at an early
date. .
. The price basis which la to po'vVrn
tbe sale of Philippine sugars until the
new. prircs established , for producers
become effective is understood to be
'6,5$ cents, for W test with a differ
eotial of 'one cent, for, 68 test and a
dad action of 310 cent for each degree
below R6. For each degree above 88
teet, 116 cent is; to be added. t This
basis has .Wan adopted, It . Is nnder
Stood in view of vhe bigh freiglrt
tates obtaining between Philippine and
Atlantic ports, .which made it. impossi
ble for producers to market? their au
gur at 'the price basis heretofore pre
vailing except a a, lieavy loss.
Arrasgoraerits for Movement
In this connection new arrangements
regulating the movement of Philippine
sugars have been worked out by the
food administration in cooperation
with the Insular Government. These
arrangements include the appointment
of a representative of the (Sugar F.quul-
Uatipn Bokrd for the Philippines, for
whirh poet Qeorge H. Fairchiid, of
Welch, Fnirohild and Company, Inc.,1
of Maaita, bas . ben designated.
Shipments of Philippine sugars will
proceed under the direction of the j
food controller, precedence being given I
to stocka in tbe' bands of producers 1
in the Philippines in arranging ship
ments. It is understood that after
producers' needs have bee,n provided 1
1 for, exporters' stocks will receive at-
j trntion, but these will tie turned back j
to the possession of producers before'
j fhey are sold, so that the producers!
I may receive the full benefit of the'
price basis now established, allowance
j being made to the exporters for their
, ex Dense in bandlinc and car'rvinu
stocks. Shipments are to proceed first
from the port of Iloilo iu onUr to
care for the accumulation of muscovado
sugars at that point.
The svstein thus worked out so'ves
the very serious problem confronting j
Philippine producers in view of the im- I
possibility prior to this time of set', I I
. ing their sugtir to this market under
the price basis heretofore in effect,
with the hi nil transportation rates that
prevail. ,
Crnit to Fairchiid
Great credit for working nut the
solution now arrived at is asxigued to .
M. Fairchiid, who has been in Wa -h
ington for several months as a repre
strata tive of Philippine producing iu- :
tirests iinri who haa hnd the HllDliort

to bring about the satisfactory adjust

receipt ot the following cablegram
from the Governor -General 'a office in
Manila indicating the satisfaction with
which Mr- 'airchi!d' oppointment bus
been received: "
''Referring to telegram from your
onfice of the 20th instant, Tairehild's
appointment as representative rluger

Decided on Merita

cultural employe for risferred classifica
tion -following the registration of men
under the V Man Power. Act" on Octo
ber wil be decided upoji Its merits;
and the local boards and the district
board will act as rapidly as possible to
give,ha, classification, to be rag intra at
and is. hja status Without n necessary
delay. This will be of extreme value
to the sugavr plantations as it will give
them all an opportunity to determine
just how tley stand with refereace to
future labor supply for the cultivating
of their next crops.,.
. It must be shown, however, as already
outlined In The Advertiser, that the
claimant la especially fitted for the
work .ho is engaged in, and also tbat he
is Irbsolutely necessary to the enterprise
with which he is associated.
Maj. H., Gooding Field is to receive
the cooperation, of tha labor burtxtq of
the Hawaiian Sugar Planters' Associa
tion to facilitate tbe handling of such
questions. The bureau will send cards
to plantation agencies containing the
questions that each registrant Is re
quired, to answer, to give, the workers i

know just what questions he is to an

so that upon presenting himself at a

for himself and the registrar.
KosponalblUty of Employers
tThe Washington correspondent of
Facts About Sugar, writing from Wash
ington September 24, gives a granhie
sumqtafy of the uow drafXjxgulations
concerning sugar employes anil de
ferred classifications us follows:.
Kxaminatiou of the revised selcctivo
service regulations which will govern
the classification of men registered un
der the aew eighteen to forty five" ago
limits shows that they ' present so
mr.ny features important to the vuri
ous branches of the sugar industry that
a presentation of the principal changes
made should be of interest to those
who may not have followed them iu
That acquaintance with at least the
bioud outliues of the regulations, ou
the part of employers especially, is
cou.Hidered important by the war de
partment authorities is indicated by
the notice seut out by Provost Mar
shal General Crowder calling upon them
In cooperate with the draft authorities
in tbe inntter of deferred classified
tions for Industrial reasons, and sug
gesting tbat thev charge themselves
mora systematically than hitherto with
the responsibility of making deferment
claims for their employers. Iu order
to carry out this resprusibility intel
ligently it is nncessary that employers

factor. With regard t,o ihe question
of what classes of .employes are, to

defirjjtion of tbe term "necessary",
the most important change affecting
the industVy is that stated as follows

Attention Is called by the fact that
as to necessary laborers or
workers in necessary industries, occu
pations or employments, Including agri
culture, the element of skill has been
eliminated from tbe revised regula
Old and Itew Wording
This is appareut from a comparison
of sectious 83 and 87 of tbe old and the
new regulations. The word "skilled"
which appeared in these sections in the
old regulations, has been omitted and
replaced by the phrase " especially fit
ted fur ths work in which be is eu
gaged." The new wording of these
sectious is as folloWs:

eeeasary" Is elaborately denned in
t Th -clim.n.tio, of tbe' elemcit of
skill in farm and indiistruil laborers is
apt to be overlooked for the. reason
that tha questionnaire still uses ' tha
word , 'aklllod" in describing Class TI.
This expUlned by a memorandum
appearing oa page 208 of the revised
regulations, which ytates that the ques
tionnaires waa , printed before ...the
amendment by congress which led to
the revision 0 .this particular regula
tion. This explanatory memorandum
particularly directs that the claim
that a registrant ia engaged In a
"necessary" agricultural enterprise
and Is 'necessary" thereto ia the ca
pacity of. a farm laborer especially
fitted for the work in whirh he la en
gaged, should be made in Division 0,
Class II, on page one of the question
naire. This is where the- word
"skilled" stilt appears 00 ths face of
the questionnaire. A similar direction
Is given for the claim that the reg
istrant engaged In a necessary indus
try, or oce.upatiou, or employment, is
"necessary" ia the capacity of a la
borer, worker or emploYe, especially
fitted for .the work in which he is en-
gKKll- "
Provisions Tot AjWlsors ',
Another important (cature of the
new regulations is the provision for
the aiMwiintroent of three. advisors for
rh 'Utrit lard, one to be nominat-,
cl bv the dopartujent of, labor: one by

by the district boa,rd. It is particular- '

er or not individuals engaged in some
particular industry, occupation, or era. .
ployment are so necessary thereto a ,
to 'outweigh the benefit of tbe nation -'
should thev be drafted in the army, J t.
The advjsors are further directed
