,gp : Infmne ca.sesvat ot.ton, the nrst question which u tourist asks
on yisiting Maui is: "Why is there not more spmi-tropical fruit
raised on tho Island?'' ;-.
Heretofore tho answer might properly have been that there has
been no market for tho surplus, but thsit is true no longer. If ban
anas, pineapples and cocoa nuts, to say nothing of alligator pears,
were raised in sufficient quantities to make it an object to ship thorn
by the steamers that are now constantly leaving Maui for the Coast,
it would bo found profitable. But really there is hardly enough of
this class of. fruit raised to supply tho homo demand since- .travel
has increased so much.
There is much hind which might be devoted to the raisinii' of
"marketable fruit without interfering in the least with its present
use. Odd corners might bo doyotodo bamina.s. and other perish
able fruits which the people hero on the .Island would bp glad to buy.
It is to be lioped t h;it some of those who have small land .hold

cciviiig the paper, 1 went in search
ef Mr. lions, and visited the Slu riiT
n bis rompany. . Hy quoting, vor-
balim. certain portions of our con-
versation of Feb. 4th I endeavoured
i-,i-5ill to Ids mind the substance
of my slat oim nt, but in vain; and
I finally left him. with the impression
that the, Sheriff's memory concerning
our interview on the day in question
was somewhat impaired. During
,mr visit. Mr. Hons stated in presence
Lf the Sheriff, that he had interviewed
Mr. Hayselden. and that that gentle
man had fully corroborated the part
of mv statement which Imre reference
to him: a niece of informal ion for
which I herewith tender my thanks
to Mr. ; Hons. Certain portions of
Mr. Hons' letter are not quite clear
In criticising that part of my
.statement which refers to cases 4 and
5 u, apparentlv forgets that the
,n.0sent tense of tho verb "consider,"

any expression of opinion on my part

ment officials from performing an
autopsy on which they , were deter
mined, when my representations in
regard to case 1 had not induced them
to make a thorough post-mortem
examination of tho bodv. .
That Dr. Weddiek, as reported by
Mr. Hons, should trouble to emphal
iesdly contradict an s'.ssertio: which
did not refer to him. is another my
tery which is left unexplained by
Mr. Hons, since, as I have stated
111 mv account 01 tne events 01
February 4th in reference to case
1, Dr. v eddick did not sec me
about tho case; in fact the first
remark concerning the case made to
me by Dr. Weddiek was during our
meeting at the house of Sain Yeag
at Kahului on Feb. 7th. three days
subsequent to the autopsy
A large portion of Mr. Hons' letter
is tidcen by attempts to prove di
agnoscs made by me, which I have
never attempted to deny; and when
his letter is carefully compared with
the statement which appeared in the
Advertiser, it will bo seen that with
the exception of the sheriff's contra
diction, the truth of my statement
