MRS. G. B. ROBERTSON, Bus. Mgr.
jQj Many years s inca a gentleman prominent in educational eli
des in California ctAme to the Islands and became a prominem
educator here. SonA seventeen years ago he was assigned to th.
Wailuku chol, and realizing; the Impostancse of planting f rui;
trees on Maui, he planted, a, number of mango, orange and alligato:
pear trees in tha schoolhonsa yard. Tod,ay ho sleeps his last
long peaceful sleep in the Wailuku cemetery, and the grore c o
trees, loaded with fruit, stands as a beautiful monument to hi
memory, and in commemoration of his kindly thought! ulness
This is a silent but eloquent appeal to the people of Wailuku t.
emulate his example for the henefit'of those -who are to come here
after. Had others emulated his example at the time, Wailuki
would today be rich in fruits for home consumption, with plentj
to ship to the Honolulu market.
Social life in Wailu ku and on Maui crystallizes slowly, for tin
reason that there is so lit'tle homogeniety among those who ar.
adapted to constitute society. From all parts of the world peopl.
have come here to carve fo rtunes
early intimate association wth eachother prevents that feeling o
harmony and brotherhood wh ich exists in old established commi
nities.. But for all that, there is a fine class" of newcomers on Maui
and they are beginning to get together and assimilate eachother'
methods,, habits and lines of thought. A few years more will sei
a charming society on Maui, with Wailuku as its center and ii,
ifi? A word of warning is needed for mothers who employ Japan
ese women as nurses for iheir children. During earlier infancy ii
makes no difference, but when a child reaches the formative perioc;
ofiits mind and disposition, which
the harm is done. The Japanese
their minds are negatie, and the
to dominate its nurse and becomes
well as impudent to its nurs
"Mommer ' of the south was different, ior she could check anu
control the child, a power not possessed by Japanese women.
O The generous support which
on Maui has met, is a sufficient; demonstation of the need for i;
bank here. The investors however must not imagine that the
are opening up a rich gold mine, or even a big dividend paying
plantation which will double and treble the original value of theif
capital stock. But they are investing their money in a gilt edgt
security which will not fluctuate in value, and which will pay o
steady andjsatisfactory rate of interest, and which will further
more always be convertible into gold coin at its original
cost, if not more. ' v
; It is with a feeling of pardonable pride that attention is invit
ed to the advertising columns of the News this week, not so mucl,
for the healthy condition of the paper as the healthy condition oJ
business on the Islands. This paper would have presented its
present appearance a year ago, b at for the outbreak of the plague
in Honolulu, supplemented by a like outbreak in Kahuiui. The
.faith of the publisher in the ultimate success of a paper on Maui,
founded on the general successful handling of business on the
Islands, is just beginning to be vindicated.
3Q Real estate values in Honolulu have apparently had a slump,
but this does not argue that the price of real estate is on a decline
in Honolulu. The difficulty is that ficticious values have been at
tached to real estate which auction sales tend to correct. As i.
matter of fact, actual values of real estate in Honolulu are steadily
advancing, as a comparison of bad rock prices now and three yeai-b
ago will demonstrate, and the real estate of "Honolulu will year
by year become worth more.
J Three years ago, there was only one place in Wailuku where
liquor could legally be bought and 'sold, and today there are si
such places, and yet as a matter of fact there is not any more
drunkenness if as much now as there was then. The only difference
is that there is not so much illicit liquor made or sold now as
then, and the government gets the benefit of the changed con
dition of affairs, in the bargain.
Q Wailuku merchants will have to wake up and do business ii
they want to successfully meet competition from the outside. By
means of travelling men and through the advertising columns ol
the Maui press, the Honolulu merchants are trying to corral al.
the trade and the Wailuku merchants will havo to rustle and ad
vertise, even if they have to do the latter with a sandwich man.
Now that the Kahuiui Railroad Company has gone to the:
trouble and expense of running a special Saturday night train
from all points on the road to Wailuku, the people of Wailuku
' should rise to the situation and provide means for the entertain
ments of our country cousins when they come to town. And
there is no doubt but that this will be done in the near future.
jf Do not complain of lack of local news from your own vicinity
in the Maui paper until you have won that privilege by sending
. in. at least one local item y oursclX.

The RIcker Cane L'oader.
Mr. W. W. Ricker, formerly of G regg
A, Co.. has devised, a cane loader
which seems to be a practical suc
cess. 1 1 is simpiy a noising macnine,
somewhat resembling the steam
hoists used in gravel mining, bdtiwas
specially devised and built for the
purpose Of loading cane.
It consists of a donkey engine set
on a car with wheels of 36 inoh guagc,
On the car platform is placed a
large drum and a forty foot fron
crane which stands nearly upi ight,
but which can be lowered when
working, to cover a radius of forty
feet. A steel wire Is wound round
the drum, one end of which runs
through a pully at the top of the
crane, xne piauorn. on wntcn me
engine, drum and crane stands is
movable, and can be turned complete
ly round by power from the engine.
When at work, the loader stands
forty feet from the traok on which
the cane cars stand. The cane with
in a radius of ' 150 feet from the
loader is tied in bundles of 1000 to
1200 lbs. and the platform and crane
is turned automatically till the crane
points toward 'the desired pile of
came and (tops. Then the wire is
unwound from the drum till the end
of it, on which there is a grab hook,
is caught in the rope with which the
cane is tied. Them the motion of
the drum is reversed and the wire
rope wound up till the cane swings
clear of the ground and at a suffi
cient height to load into the car, and
crane is swung round till it is di-rct-ly
over the car to be leaded, when
the drum is reversed and the cane is
lowered into the car, and the engine
drum and crane are swung round
again till the crane points to the plie
of cane, when to wire rope is again
paid out till it reaches the cane.
By this Is will be seen the saving
consists in the carrying of the cane
to the cane cars. It would bo prac
tic ally impossible to devise a machine
which would pick up the cane.
The cane loader carries its own
track with it, in sections, ana as
it moves forward in the field, it
simply swings its crane behind it,
picks up a twelve foot section ol
track, and then swings round again
with the track danelinar to the end
of the crane and lower it in the da
'ed place in front. By this means
it is readily and quickly moved for
ward by its own power. The entire
adius of the reach of the loader is
300 feet, being 150 feet on either
side. A force of ten men are
required to operate the loader which
includes the piling of the cane and
placing it on the1 oane cars. A
cane car with slanting sides is pre
ferable to one with perpendicular
The motive power of the engine is
crude petroleum of which it con
sumes about 12 gallons in twelve
hours. This is the only cva oil en
gine on the Islands. The loader is
all iron and indestructible by fire, as
was demonstrated Eome days ago,
the loader having passed through
the Paia cane lire without a particle
of damage. This machine was
manufactured by the Brown Hoist
ing Machinery Co. of Cleveland, and
can be delivered on the Islands for
The Ricker cane loader is peculiar
ly well adapted for clearing the
ground of rocks, and in the off sea
son could be very profitably employ
ed for that purpose.
On Tuesday of this week, the Wai
luku Plantation finished its season's
run with a total output of 8,100 tons,
the largest season's yield on record
for this plantation. The yield would
have been larger still, had labor been
available for stripping cane.
The Spreckelsville Mill is still run
ning, and it will probably take two
months longer to finish grinding this
year's crop. The output to date is
about 18,000 tons, and there is yet
about 9,000 tons to be run, making
the total output of tha Spreckelsville
for the season 27,000 tons. The yield
would havo been larger, but for the
heavy kona storms of the past win
ter which destroyed or injured qiiite
an area of cane. There is now no
scarcity of labor on Spreckelsville
Plantation, and planting for the new
crop is well under headway. Assist
ant Manager B. H. Baldwin has taken
charge of the plantation during the
absence of Manager Lowrie, and
Senator H. P. Baldwin will make his
home at Spreckelsville during Man
ager Lowrie's absence and generally
supervise the management of the
