fi Th-i citi;-.ins of Maui aro tt bi compliinuntetl on their choica
of u committee to represent Maui in the matter of securing exhib
its for I iio Louisiana Purchase Exposition. The chairman of the
oniinii'eo, Ihm. A. N. Kop.iik ii U quite competent to represent
a. interests of tlie planters, anil will be able to secure from thorn
ftbuiuLrit material and the necessary financial aid to properly
advei Use our sugar industry. The selection of Mr, D. D. Bald
win was a very happy one, and through him our educational ad
vancement and cognate matters Will be iriveu duo prominence.
As a representative of cur minor industries, Mr. Ii. C. Searle is
ju-t the nnin needed. On him will fall the heaviest task, however
ii lli'irmi'.'-ii and satisfactory performance of which will be of more
fitv.r.tie.l benefit U ManJ than any other feature of the exhibition.
Ait;.iA;yii the Exhibition does not take place till WO, still the
co'-nmitlee cannot began work too soon in tlie matter of formulat
es;' the outlines of their work.
4 All of the great railroad lines of the United States are more
than willing to aid any movement initiated on the Islands to attract
tourist travel, and they are in position to render valuable aid in
this direction But the tirst impulse toward organize! effort must
begin here. The meeting of tlie people of the Islands at the Hono
lulu fair in July would be a, most suitable time for a convention
of those interested to be held. Such a convention' could organ'ze a
permanent bureau for the purpose of taking all necessary and
proper steps to advertise the attractive features of the Islands,
Circulate printed mat;er, and work up a tide of tourist travel.
The good results of such a move would mean inestimable benefit to
ho Islands. The Honolulu newspapers and hotel men' should ar
fang for the convention.
Kfiin,-.' .Tnrvtnpsrj nrr." hpinrr rrnllod i nto le.'iviti!? the Islands for
6aliforuia, where they are promised work at frl.QQ per day in the
orchards and vineyards. To begin with the fruit season in Califor
nia is relatively a short one, and in the second place raw hands
cannot command ".00 per day. Labor always will be unsatis
factory in California, for the reason that labor there is too 'desul
tory. There is a rush to put ni crops in the winter, and another
rush to harvest the crops in the summer, with long vacatious of
enforced idleness in the spring and autumti. While some Japanese
may be fooled into going to California',' still the messages which t hey
send back .will put a sudden quietus to their further exodus, to the
f2 There is no minor question of s much importance to native
Hawaiians as a simple and wisely arranged system of land registry.
ICuleanis of taro land are generally very small tracts, but ex
tremely valuable, and the laws and methods of descent of titles to
these small tracts are at present so lax that much confusion will
eventually result, if ihe mattter is no wisely handled by thi legis-l'atui-e.
Administration of the estates of decedents, according Jo
English and American courts, is too expensive, and probate courts
should be given jurisdiction to settle the title of the land on the
proper heirs and' issue certificates therefor, in an' inexpensive
O 9 S
Another minor industry of much importance to the Islands is
Ltie proposed cultivation of vanilla bean. The cheapest grade of
t'hese sell for sfC!00, and the best grade for 20 per pound. Ex
perimental vines in Honolulu are loaded with fruit, and the indica
tions ar3 that many parts of tlie Islands are perfectly adapted to
the cultivation of the vanilla bean. An acre of theso beans, even
of medium quality, would be worth far more than an acre of catie
aud"th'?y will doubtless beci r.no on irftporrant article of export" in
the near future.

The disturbances in China are assuming a new and more dan;
gerous pliasj. The present reigning dynasty are regarded witu
sbuie cause by Southern China' as usurpers, and a general move
ment is organizing either to drive them from the throne, or to seg
regate Southern China completely and establish a kingdom of
China proper, exclusive of Chiua-Tartary. This is a movement in
which foreign troops need not be called for, but its seriously
thieutens tuj disruption of China.
The accident on the pa'i this week w hereby life was endangered,
is very suggestive of a serious need.' There should be a protective
veiling placed along the inakai side of the road at all the danger
ous p Lie os. Upright posts with a 2x1 rail on the top, say four feet
high, and pus.sibly a'lxb' board below weald not be expensive, and
woull m ike the road comparatively safe. At present the road is
very dauyorous for unruly teams.

(Continued from last week.)
In those days varshSps' calling at.
the Islands would drop anchor at
Makena, and alloflicers were invited
to Uiupalakua, where the Captain
would hold ''open- hotisfo" for a week
at a .time; invitations were sent
broadcast throughout the island to
attend a ball or series of bails given
in honor of the navid officers. It b
needless to say that he was many
times imposed upon. Yet at all times
his house was open and the entertain
r.ctit was lavish.
..'1 not her old pioneer and whaler
was Captain Hebron, whoso home
was at Grove ranch. The Captain
was a thorough seaman, ur.d it was
his (leet of inter-island schooners
which had the passenger traliie as
well as a large portion cf the tran
sporting of lreiyht.
In the fifties a flour mill was built
in Wailuku, opposite the native
church, and t lie re converted the
wheat grown in Eula and Mal.awao
into flour tp provide for l he gold
seekers of California. At this time
Maui provided as well as potatoes and
other vegetables a:ul beef tor the
"Golden West." The mill was con
tinued in active, profitable operation
up to it o time California was in a
position t.o raise her own . wheat,
when operations were suspended, r.s
the distance to compete was too great.
Messrs. Savers and Uoardaian,
two more ''old-times," the f inner a
yenei u: i'erehr.i.t and the latter a
capitalist, made their homes in Ma
kawao. Their lands adjoined each
oiher, and while both were heraVts
they found companionship in' each
oil until one fatal d:iy some dif
ference arose ever the dividing fence,
and for years they were stranngers,

considered one of the larger planta
tions! were turning out 300 tons of
sugar per year, and the total ci op
o the islands was 15, OIK) tons, which
in 1S73 was increased to 17,000V Re
ciprocity,' which occurred at this time,
helped the growing sugar industry,
but it was claimed by the planters
that the limit of production under
these favorable conditions would not
exceed 50,000 tons.
Wailuku, which is the principal
town of East ilaui, is admirably situ
ated on the East slope of West Maui
Mountains and unsurpassed view of
the sea and H'aleiikala on one niile,
and tho famous valley of Iao on the
other. Wailuku, on account oi its
situation', could well be called the
'Guardian of' lao." It practically
commenced to build aud assume the.'
proportions of a good sized town in
18GI 2, when, on account of a heavy
.drought throughout tho island, peo
ple moved from Makawtxvand Grove
Ranch to Waiiiee and Wailuku, where
water was plentiful. At this lime
Wailuku has three separate and dis
tinct plantations w'ahr.r' the town
boundaries: Waiiuk'n Plantation, .an
other conducted by Hall and Adams
and another by E. R-ailey. Later
they were submerged into Wailuku
Plantation, and Waiiiee and Waikapu
taken in still later.
Wailiiku's chief industry, aside from
fciiyar- was the production of taro
and it is fair to presume that Wai
luku and Waiiiee produce twieo the
amount of taro of any other uitiriet
cf'iike size, unless it is that of Wai
pio on Hawaii. It is hero that the
taro is rawed which makes the Ta
roeiia, or taro flour, used so exten
sively in the Hast in the uurseries
and hospitals. A !arge vanetv of
