2 While it is a dubious proposition as to the establishing of a
sugar refinery cn tho Islands, still it is one of the possibilities of
the future that every sugar mill on the Islands will eventually re
fine its own sugar. No method for du'".ig this cheaply and success
fully has yet been discovered, but it is an inviting field for invest
igation and experiment. Nor should it bo left, for outsiders to
make the discovery. At present the planters tax themselves
twentv-fivo cents per ton on tho sucur nroduct'on of the Islands
for the purpose of maintaining an experiment station at Honolulu,
to investigate varieties of cane and cognate subjects. Thev should
go a step further and tax sugar another twenty-live cents per ton,
tho proceeds to bo used to pay the salary of an expert who could
devote his whole time and talent to discovering a method of refin
mg sugar cheaply, at the time and place of its manufacture.
? Too much stress cannot be laid on the importance of totally
eradicating the Belgian hare from the Islands, for they would be
come an ineradicable plague here. In California, in Australia, and
in other level regions, the pest can be handled by means of rabbit
derives at which immense numbers of tho bunnies are corralled
and slain, but such a thing would not work here, for the reason
that there is too little level ground. The bulk of the hares would
live and burrow in the sides of the impassable palis, from which
would be sent forth continually hordes of leporine goths and van
dals to destroy not only young cane, but all other tender vegeta
tion as well.

and when needed another mill will be
put in which will give a total capaci
ty of 500 tons per day.
Tho economy of the new mill will
be apparent in many ways. In the
first place, cane can be cut and
ground as soon as ready, thus saving
a considerable percentage of loss
which occurs on many plantations at
present, by not being able to handle
the cane as soon as ready to grind.
Then the economy of handling the out
put of three mills with one set of re
ducing machinery will mean a caving
