Bpectcd tho work and accepted it in
the following words:

Rev. E. G. Beckwith then deliver
ed a brief but eloquent address .full of
reminiscence and rich with sugges
tive thoughts, oe of the most strik
ing of1 which was t'nat "the man who
provides honest labor for a thousand
men, whereby tha can win a sup

benefactor to hunanity than he who
supports a thousand paupers." After

a short address, premising his, re
marks by stating that the new mill
had been christened tho "Punene
Mill" and that hereafter the planta
tion would be known as "Punene
Plantation. He then gave a short
sketch of tho sugar industry on Maui
during his early boyhood, statiug
that many years since, Mr. Beck
with, a brother of Rev. E. G. Beck
with, was sent by a syndicate of Ho
nolulu people to look up Haiku as a
sugar plantation. Mr. Beckwith car
ried back to Honolulu a glowing re
port of the pobibilities of Haiku, but
with some hesitation, stated to the
directors that his estimate for a mill
of tho proper size might bo deemed
by them as rather large, and when
asked what capacity of mill would be
required, ho replied that nothing less
than a mill of at least three ana a
half tons a day would answer, at
which the hair of the directors rose
in horror, In less than one man's
life" continued the speaker, "we see
here today a mill which xvhen finish
ed will be the largest sugar mill on
on earth, with a capacity of 500 tons
per day, when fully completed.',
At tho conclusion of the exercises,
the . entire party 'were were
invited to a feast of ice cream anrl
other delicacies, after which the
train whirled them back through
fields of waving cane, to Kahului
