of the island j but, generally, the rainfall Is
sufficient to Insure average crops.
ITU CANE A-D JUOAR THA.NSrORTATION.
Three of the Kohala mills have most of
their cane brought to the grinding rolls in
flumes, supplied with water by the various
gulches. Hunting is Ihe best and most inex
pentlve method of cane transportation, not
withstanding the heavy expense of flume build
ing. It is an open question whether the thiee
mills whose cane It all carted to the rotifers
would be justified In bringing water from so
great a distance as would be required, and over
to broken n country at must be followed, In
order to flume all their upland cane. Hut
while opinion! differ at to the practicability of
tuch action, all with whom I converted agreed
at to the ailv.1nt.1gcj of fluming at a system.
On the Kohala plantation whit are called
"(ration." or "traction" engine! are used.
They are, In effect, locomotive wagons run
ning well on smooth roads, and fairly well on
dry .and comparatively level, roads) but of
little use on broken ground, sleep grades or
wet toil. Mule and bullock wagont carry
most of the cane not flumed.
The Kohala Hallway and the tteamer Klnau
carry most of the Kohala sugar 10 Honolulu.
One plantation sends its sugar to Honolulu
from ltt landing by schooner.
Although sugar is the great Kohala staple,
and though it seems so to be almott to the ex
clusion of other industries, the resources of the
community are extensive and varied. Pololu
valley produces rice and tato, Irrigated taro is
grown In many of the gulches and In a few
favored upland spots, and dry or upland taro
is grown in many places. The community
rides on horseback almost to a man exclusive
of the poorest among Ihe laliorers. Both
European and native women ride in visiting,
shopping and church going. As a result the
Kohala saddle horses, though small, if judged
by American or English standards, are good
looking, wiry, sprightly and well btoken
animals. The Kohala Chinese ride li.iWtually.
On one occasion I met a cavalcade numbering
fully twenty, riding like American school boys
homeward bound with just about as much
jollity and just about as much sense.
The plantation animals, numbering some
hundreds of mulct and of joke olen, look well
lited and well cared for. Compared with
animalt of like employment in Mexico the
Kohala stock it in alt respects superior; and
would compare not unfavorably with like tl5ck
in California. Some attention hat been paid
by Kohalans of late years to stock breeding,
including milch cows for private darying, and
twine and poultry. There it of course much
room for improvement; but the beginning is
Fruit culture Is in its infancy. It it quite
idle for a brief observer to speculate upon the
possibilities of the region in that line, because
what has so far been done is so contradictory.
Most of the best land has so far been too valu
able for cane to admit of fruit culture experi
ments, and most of the best land also is too
continuously windswept to make the experi
ment practicable, except at some expense and
time in planting trees as wind breaks. In one
or two situations orange trees no planted and
sheltered have yielded large quantities of good
fruit. In other situations similarly situated
orange trees have failed. Gulch planting has
yielded good fruit in oranges, mangoes, aligalor
pears, and other fruits, but has been unpro
fitable because, of the cost of picking and the
danger of that almost ever) where endemic
moral disease, fruit stealing.
The natural resources of the district (includ
ing imported plants now growing wild) are
many 1 Guaras, breadfruit, coffee, pine apples,
bananas, mangoes, papias, sumach (neneleau),
ti, awa, noni, pandanus, mamaki, pulu ferns,
pili grass and (though rare) olona.
Neneleau is so like the American sumach as
to be easily mistaken for it. Chemical tests
have shown that its leaves are rich in tannin.
Many American boys will remember ihe
sumach picking of their bo) hoods. The leaves
were picked with short tems just as the tree
came to flower. The leaves weredried, "cured,"
as hay is cured. Afterwards it was ground
and was then ready for use. It made good
leather, though not so good as the Sicily sum
ach which was worth in Uoston, ground,
from $50 to $60 per ton. Even granting that
the sumach of the Kohala hills (and it grows
in places all around the island) is as valuable
as the Mediteiranean variety, there would
have to be cheaper labor children's labor at
hand to make gathering it for export possible.
Uut if experiment shall prove that it makes
superior leather there is no reason (except
lack of cheap labor) why these Islands cannot
tan many of the hides they now export, and
at a profit.
Pandanus (puhala) used to be the native's
most valuable tree. The trunks uprights for
houses) the branches were used for rafters)
the twigs bound the frame work together ) the
leaves made matt and siding and thatch when
pili grass was not obtainable ; the ripening
fruit made orange colored lcis 1 and the ripened
nuts were eaten. Now the pandanus is neg
lected, and is an oddily picturesque but scarcely
beautiful feature of the KohIa landscape, in
gulches and along some parts of the bluffs,
particularity to near Niulii.
The ti plant (lai) is useful if not ornamental.
It is as every island reader know Ihe true
Hawaiian basket ; fruit, fish, pot and meat
being alike carried in (t every day of the year.
The root contains mucTt sugar, in a syrup
lornu Whether tf syrup could be granulated
has never been determined. Whether the
plant could be cultivated and the root made
to produce sugar in paving quantities, it worth
more than a pasting thought. It grow at
present on the rocky sides of gulches, for the
most part at least in Kohala. Of course the
labor of 'digging the roots would prevent profit
able sugar production from it, no matter how
rich in sugar. If the plant could be cultivated
in the deep rich soil of a lowland field, aston
ishing results mifkt be reached. At any rate
an experiment would not be cottly and some
of the money appropriated for the encourage
meat of agriculture "appropriately" might be
applied to the cultivation of a ti field dining

the roots totBcrfcciIoru
Olona It a shrub with spreading lunches',
large enough lo be called (in this land of com
paratively dwarf aboreal growth) a small tree.
From it t bark is drawn a strong fibie, from
which ihe nets and fish lines of former da)t

years old, given me by Key, Elias Bond, It

tation, has finer strawberries growing in hit

In Honolulu far finer. There it a hint In
this for our Chinese cnllivators. Why?
Of course I do not pretend to have exhausted
the resource! of the Kohala region, I have
indicated a few of them only, llut the practl

of thinking that may have practical and pro

I came near forgetting to note that two at
lean among Kohala's many wide awake and
progtessive women have undettaken kitchen
gardening and hope (though their husbands
are asset sceptical) to produce better veget
ables and in greater variety than do Ihe Chinese
market gardeners j and at no greater expense.
And I must not forget to credit the district
with a laudable exhibition of public spirit in
tree planting, and in forest conservation
although much more ojght to be done in both
directions. Of the trees planted for wind
breaks, Ihe iron wood, the eucalyptus (globu
tut chiefly) and variout Australian wattles are
the favorites. The Iron wood stands the wind

Through the kindness of some unknown
friend the Press is enabled to give its readers the
following account ol our exhibit in the World's
Exposition which was printed in the New
Orleans Times-Democrat of the 21st ultimo:
The Hawaiian Islands, eight in number, are
a chain of islands in the Pacific Ocean, 2,100
miles south-west of San Francisco. The largest
island, Hawaii, is 4,210 square miles in area,
and the smallest, N'iihau, is 63 square miles in
area, the area of all the islands is 6,740 square
miles. The configuration of the land, as well
as the fact that they are In the trade-wind belt,
and have no other islands or continents nearer
than 200 miles, gives these islands a climate
unequaled for evenness and salubrity, and the
extremes of temperature are 54 dcg. and 90
deg., though these extremes are rarely reached.
In 1S7S the total population of the group was
57,oS5, and at the end of 1SS4 it was estimated
at So, 344, consisting of 49.039 natives, 17.
6S1 Chinese, 8,19s Portuguese and 7,603 other
foreigners. The city of 1 Ionolulu has 20,000
people. It is located on the Island of Oahu,
is the seat of government and the principal
port of the group. It is the commercial and
business centre, and is well and compactly
built, with several fine buildings. The princi
pal exports of the Hawaiian Islands, altogether
agricultural, for the year ending December 31,
18S4, were :
Sugar, 142,654,923 pounds ; molasses, 110,
530 gallons ; rice, 9, $39,224 pounds ; cpffee,
4,231 pourxlt ; bananas, 58,040 bunches ; goat
skins, 20,125, sheep skins, 8,030; hides, 21,.
006 ; tallow, 2,864 pounds ; wool, 407,623
pounds, etc. Total value of exports, $7,977,
90S. The imports consist of machinery, d(y
goods, groceries, hardware and manufactured
goods of all sorts ; lumber, feed, animals, etc.,
and valued In 1SS3 at $5,624,240.
The arrivals of merchant ships from foreign
potts and departures last year were 267, with a
tonnage of 185,316, and the arrival and de
parture of passengers was 14,522. The culli
vation of the sugar cane forms one of the chief
industries, and about 55,000 acres are planted
tlictc. Klce growing, cattle raising and fruit
growing are also prominent industries, and the
ramie, jute and other fibrous shrubs grow of
themselves on the islands.
The present reigning king is his Majesty,
Kalaukaua, who ascended the throne in 1S74,
and whose consort is Queen Kapiotani. Inter-
island communication is carried on by a fleet
of thirteen steamers and thirty-five schooners
and sloops. There is a railroad of twenty miles
along the north coast Of Hawaii, and another
on the south coast of Maui.
The Hawaiian exhibit is located in the Main
Building, at LL 10. It is under the charge of
the Hawaiian commissioner-, Hon. Samuel
Patkcr, now in Washington, D. C, preparatory
to returning home, and Hon. J. Molt Smith,
and it is under the immediate attendance of
Mr. George Allen. It is intended merely as
illustrative of the resources and Industrial con
dition ol the group rather lhan as a full display
of all their natural of commercial products.
There arc shown many specimens of the
handiwotk of Hawaiian women, mostly article
of fancy work, made from fibres and seeds,
shells and feathers, found on the Island, and
are specimens of feminine taste and In do
mestic wear, rather than articles of domestic
value. There are exhibited hats braided of the
fibres of palms, ferns, sugar-cane leaves, sugar
cane blossoms, maiden-hair ferns, etc.; neck
laces made of the seeds of various trees ) wall
ornaments, charms, slippers, fans, etc., all from
native wood and plants.
A small "Kahili" of peacock feather it
worthy cf attention, The kahili it used at an
insignia of rank and it made of rare and cottly
feathers, and descend as heir-loom in the
families of the chief. The Hate Kahilis are
very large and beautiful, and are mounted on
elaborate staffs ten or twelve lect In length.
They are borne aloft on state occasions by men
coveted with short cap of woven feathers.
Se7rl varieties of fibre, Including wauke
hau, olona, ramie, etc., all of which grow
luxuriously without cultivation, are exhibited.
Specimen! of Hawaiian woods, school books,
newtpapers, salts, lugar-canct, tilver coins,
necklaces, melodies, tongt, etc, are all shown.
Mr. C. C. Coleman, of Honolulu, shows a
sugar-cane planting machine mode), lately in
vented and constructed by himself. It it made
to furrow, drop Ihe teed and cover it in one
operation. The cane it cut Into lengths of
about six Inches and placed in the hopper,
whence it falls mo the furrow as tin machine
moves along. Il is drawn over the field by
two pairs of hnites, and require two men. a
driver and a feeder. Il will plant six or more
acres per day. The cost of forty-five acres
planted with the machine wa $2.50 per acre.
There are thown a Urge pumbcr of photo
graphs of the royal family and connection, and
of tiewt of the island scenery.
Altogether the exhibit it one of uncommon
Interest, and calculated to attract more than a
casual atliaction to the Sandwich Islet.

Thursday last, of the sudden death of Mr.
Augutt Unnaof liana, Maul, on the night of
April 6th. The news cannot be said to have
been unexpected to many In the community,
yet It was a severe blow to a large circle of
friends and acquaintances, whose sympathies
are extended to the suddenly bereaved widow
Mr. August Unna was well known through
out these Islands, having rttlded here since
1852, first being engaged as salesman with
Louis Anlhon in the building on Merchant
street lately remoett to make place for the
new Police Station. On the retirement of Mr.
Anlhon from business Mr. Unna moved to
Lahalna, and was for a time engaged with Mr.
Iloffmeyer, and the late 11. K, Holies, subse
quently entering into business for himself.
From Lahaina he moved to liana, hating
bought the liana Plantation, to the faithful
management of which he devoted his untiring
energies and brought it out of a struggling
concern to a fine pajing estate.
For nearly eight) can past Mr. Unna has
been the Danish Consul for these Islands. He
visited his native land a few years after his
appointment, and brought back with him a
bride, since which time liana has been their
home In the fullest sense ol the term. To
gether they made It a charming spot for their
own comfort and the pleasure of entertaining
