NEW DRUG STORE.
To be Immediately Established
Mr. W. H. Field,' former, manager
of the Home Bakery, Honolulu, but
for several months past a resident of
Wailuku, has this week taken a
twenty year lease on the property
on the coiner of Main and High
street, opposite Hoffman it Vetle
sen's store, now occupied by Ching
Hou's bakery, and will at once erect
a large and elegant drug store.
This is not to be done because
there is a boom In Wailuku, for as a
matter of fact there isn't any boom
here. Neither is because the News
has advocated a drug store. The
real reason is that there Is not at
present a drug store on the Island
of Maui. Mr. Field lu,s been here
long enough to ascertain tho real
needs of the town and of the Island.
md Is going to work In a business
like way to supply the need.
The store will have a frontage of
30 feet on Main street, by 100 feet
depth on High street. Plans for the
building are being completed, and
work will be commenced as soon as
the present buildings arc removed.
Mr. Field goes to Honolulu today to
complete details, and will return on
Mr. Chas. P. Faulkner, a regis
tered druggist of over 25 years ex
perience in San Francisco, and
former manager of the Grant Drug
Co., will probably be the manager of
the new Wailuku drug store. Mr.
Faulkner, who has spent several
weeks in Wailuku, leaves today for
the Coast via Honolulu, to lay In a
tx k of drugs aud supplies for the
new establishment, among which will
bo a circulating library, a toda
fountain and a plant for an icecrerni
parlor in the rear of the drugstore.
He expects to retuiM in time to
cater to tho Christmas trade in
Wailuku, and it is hoped that the
building will be ready by his retui n
which will bo within two months.
To Be at Once Constructed in
Manager W. J. Lowrie, to whose
foresight and indominable pluck
Spreckelsville is indebted for Its re
cent big ditch, has inaugurated
anothor great enterprise, no less
important to the plantation, that of
cuislructing an electric power plant
in Iao Valley for the purpose of
bringing power to the Spreckelsville
Messrs Grimwood & Richardson,
of Honolulu, have been given charge
of the construction of the plant, and
have already put their men to work.
Preliminary surveys are to be made,
on which to base estimotes for plans,
cost, etc. As soon as these are com
pleted, the inachincr' will bo ordered
and tho work of construction com
It will be sime ihonths yet, pos
sibly a year, before the plant is com
pleted and the power ready for ue
at the plantation pumps. But tlioir
construction is definitely determined
upon, and it Is Mr, Lowrie's inten
tion to pusli the work to completion
The proposition of bringing elec
tric power from Iao Valley to
Spreckelsville plantation hai been
under coijsideratiou for some time
and now It Is ftn assured, fact
A Plantation of the Past.
Tills Is a time of plantation making
In these Islands. New jHantations
are springing up liko magic, and
everybody is looking forward with
enthusiasm to a busy and prosperous
future under tho reign of King
Sugar. There seems little time to
think of anything In the past,-- the
present claims all the activity,
energy and virile force of tho people.
But there is a place on the Island
of Maul where tho visitor gets a
glimpse into the past. This is the
old McKee plantation, sometimes
spoken of as Ulupalakua. but now
called Rose Ranch. Hero one can
not but indulge in day dreams as he
wanders about and looks upon the
evidences of a past opulence which
it would be hard to duplicate in any
of the plantations of today. Ulupala
kua was at the height of its beauty
and prosperity forty years ago,
when the great central plain of Maui
was still a desert of whirling red
dust, before it had been made to
blossom Into tlie green and fertile
plantations of Paia and Spreckels
ville, by tlie magic touch of capital,
labor, energy and irrigation.
High up on tlie shoulder of old
Haleakala was built the beautiful
McKee mansion, surrounded by large
grounds, set out with choice and
beautiful shrubbery and intersected
with cement walks in every direction.
Below, stood the sugar mill, and
surrounding it were the cottages for
the laborers and for guests, one
cottage having been specially built
to entertain royalty. There were
miles of beautiful carriage drives
bordered with rows of tine trees,
winding in and out, up and down
those enchanting hills,-- one drive
winding to the very top of Prospect
Hill, a spur of the mountain as high
At tho extreme summit of this hill
the drive ended at a little park with
a tiny summernouse. from tins
point a gloriously enchant'ng view is
spread out before the eyes. Tin
Islands of Kahoolawe and Molokini lie
at one's feet like gems in the bosom
of the ocean. Far away is Lahaiua,
and nearer is Maalaea Bay, while
across the narrow isthmus is the
sweep of Kahulul Bay with its little
seaport and a cluster of feathery
masts of shipping. On the summit
of this hill are still blooming beauti
ful jasmines and lilies, but the ter
raced driveway has fallen into decay.
From this hill one can look out
over a broad expanse of acres where
once grew fields of sugar cane. The
old mill Is now a crumbling ruin. The
roads are overgrown with roots and
washed out by the rains of mai y
years. The cottages are gone, and
the persistent lantana Is fast en
croaching upon tlie grassy pusture
lands. Far down tho slope on a
prominent point of land in a grove of
cypress trees which ever whisper
mournfully of tho past, is an imposing
mausoleum in which lie the bodies
of James McKee and his wife.
This man of unbound ed energy lies
at rest, but all about him are the
evidences of his labors. Time, which
has brought ruin to many tilings a-
bout the plac.1, has brought to per
fection the thousands of massive, trees
which he grouped in artistic clusters
all over the plantation.
Numerous immense reservoirs still
stand as monuments to his far sighted
plans. In the old house are still
some relics of bygone elegance. A-
mong these aro some fine old . koa
tablet and other furniture on which
collectors ore casting longing eyes.
On the grounds, there stands a curi
ous old Hawaiian rain god on which
the notives still hattg leis during dry
seasons, it is indeed a delightful
place hi which to rest and dream.
Tho owners are now beginning
operations toward making Rose
Ranche a fine cattle ranche. There
are already some thousands of choice
cattle roaming over those fertile
pastures, the beef from which com
mands a premium of two or three
cents in tho Honolulu market. The
number of stock cattle is to bo in
creased, and soon again Rose Ranche
will take its place as one of the great
ranclies of the Island.
At present, Ulupalakua presents
an object lesson as to tho value and
importance of treo . planting. No
Other such exhibit of trees can be
found on the Islands. To plant a tree
is to do something for posterity.
When one looks upon tho thickets of
figs or upon tho groves of mungocs
and other fruit-bearing trees at
Ulupalakua, he realizes that hero
upon this island home of ours, there
