The Hilo Tribune of March 14,th. has the following relative
shipping of bananas to the coast.
The Eastern bananas p?"ple art Killing the price on
Hawaiian fruit by sim ily unloading several carloa-is
at the time the b. 8. Enterprise arrives and selling
their own fruit at very low lisrures. Their bunches
are twice the size of ours and sell at about 1.00 n
bunch. This results iu knocking the price f Hawaii
an bananas down to nothing. The Hilo grower should
organize and come into this market solid. If they do
not they are going to be beaten right along You are
at the mercy of the commisssion men and things are
are getting worse." Some shippers last month only
realized thirteen cents a bunch and one man's net pro
ceeds on a 300 shipment was 3.00.
While there has beeuonly spasmodic attempts by Maui growers
to ship this luscious fruit to the San Francisco market, the time is
not far off when facilities may warrant growers following the lead
ot tne small xarmers oi tne oig isianu ana tnis note or warning
is sounaea ia advance mat Maui growers may prom irora tne ex
perience of others. The Hawaiian grown banana is much sought
alter oy tne consumer oi tne i-acinc coast, as its navor is tar sup
erior to that of the Bluefields variety . Asa large percentage of
the California commission men are in a combine w tie re by they
agree notto com pete against each other so far as Hawaiian bananasa re
concerned the iucependent grower in Hawaii who has to business
affiliation is up against a hard proposition. Again, the California
commission men are more or less financially interested in the Ni
caragua crops and as a result make proat at botb ends. Hilo has
established a very lucrative business from bananas shipments,
some of these shipments running as high as 8000 bunches a steam
er, but as that particular district is1 noted for its wise men, they
would not listen to Captain Miller the former captain of the S. S.
Enterprise, who was for many years engaged in the banaua trade
with Boston Tropic Fruit Co. Captain Miller in a meeting of the
Hilo Agricultural Society, something like two years, counseled the
Hilo growers on the advisablity of shipping as a unit with a paid
representative at San Francisco who would be in touch with the
commission men. At one time the Hilo people realized as high as
eighty seven and a half cents per bunch net and as this fruit can
be grown by white labor at forty-five cents per bunch and cover
all costs landed at the wharf, they were in a way to make a profit
JQfc Sportmen are beginning to talk racing for the coming year
mi t !- ; A i .. .
ids Maui racing- Association nas oeen very active in tne past in
putting up liberal purses to induce outside horsemen to enter their
trotters and runners, and as a result the Racing Association's
cash account is depleted and they are in debt for a small sum
The News would suggest that for this years sports the purses be
of fairly good size; sufficient to warrant putting the horses in con
dition, but limit the entries to horses owned by Maui horsemen
and that this ownship must date not later then April or May 1st
which would do away with the possibility of a racing ownership
being negotiated a day or so before the meet and the entering of a
"ringer." Maui has always had the reputation of producing
the cleanest races and there is no reason why, with the horses now
on the island racing should not be held up to the former standard.
Ss Speaking about sports, if this years events place the Associa
tion on the "velvet' side, why not make it an inducement to the
Association to till iu the land inside the race course and survey
it for baseball, cricket, and polo grounds. Witn the uew Sundav law
in vogue it should be an easy matter to hold successful sports a
