HONOLULU, Oct. 10. The
establishment of a jute bag factory
in Honolulu is a proposition which
has been laid before various plan
ters during tho past three or four
The first time tho matter was
broached was just before the slump
in sugar cane, and the matter was
dropped. In the past six months
it has been reconsidered and laid
before E. E. Paxton, general mana
ger of tho Sugar Factors' Assoccia
tion, among others, but owing to
work on hand which has kept that
official busy in connection with
sugar shipments, etc., Mr. Paxton
has been able to take the matter
At present, with over 400,000
tons of sugar going out of Hawaii
annually, and with an average of
sixteen bags being used to the ton,
there has been required over 6,000,
000 bags yearly to sack the output.
Before annexation the bags cost
only half they do at present.
Those who havo looked into tho
matter are of the opinion that very
little capital will be required to
install the machinery for such a
plant in Honolulu. The raw ma
terial could bo brought here from
India, and employment could be
nd for about 600 persons, al
though this number would not be
rom the philanthropic stand
point it is believed that tho esta
blishment of a jute bag manufact
ory would relievo the pressure from
those who aro continually called
upon for funds to aid persons out
of work. There aro many men in
the community, out of work with
no funds to go to tho plantations
or other islands to seek it. A jute
bag manufactory would supply
them with a few days' labor, ut
least, giving them funds on which
to live until they could cot regular
or better employment.
HONOLULU, Oct. 7. In his
report to tho President of tho
Board of Health on his recont
visit to Maui, Dr. Pratt says tho
sanitary condition of tho camps on
tho H. C. & S. Co.'s plantation is
excellent. Of methods thero he
''If Dr. Dinegar or the planta
tion policoman find any one who
has not cleaned up or has been
throwing out wash water, the
man's number is taken and ho is
fined $2 for the first offenso and $5
for tho second, and this is deduct
ed from his wages at the end of the
month. This rule might well be
followed by other plantations."
Dr. Pratt makes the following
recomendations for Wailuku and
"If tho threo buildings, Bpolcen
of in tho report as boloncinK to
Mrs. Aluli, aro not removed, I
would advise that they bo condem
ed and ordered vacated until tho
place is made sanitary. That those
buildings which can be raised, be
raised above tho level of the street.
That lean-tos bo torn down and
buildings in the back yards be re
modeled bo to got sufficient air
space. ''That tho privies be re
built, and, if Managor Wells can
be persuaded to take the contents
of the dry earth boxes, that the
dry earth system bo installed.
That sanitary sinks and wash
floors bo put in and connected by
proper drains to be cesspools. That
all wooden drains be removed.
"That the open ditch, covered
with boards on tho upper side of
Market street, be abandoned as a
sower, unless a cement sower is
laid. That horses be not allowed
to bo stabled in back yards.
" That the Wailuku plantation
appoint at least two sanitary police
to look after their camps. That tho
plantation bo required to put in
sinks and wash-floors in each
camp, aleo collect all the refuse
and garbage from the camps. If
possiblo, the dry earth system
should be inaugurated on all the
That the removal of garbage and
refuse in Wailuku be continued,
and that collections be made at
least two or threo times a week,
instead of onco a week, as is beinc
"The sanitary conditions there
are such that nothing short of con
demning the greater part of the
Chinese and Japanese quarters
would bo effective.
"The H. C. & Co. have bought
tho land, subject to leases, which
have' about a year and a half to
run. It is their intention, when
they come into possession, to tear
down all tho buildings and build
a new Kahului camp further in
land. Plans have been drawn on
modern sanitary lines. Under the
circumstances, it will bo hard to
got tho Chineso and Japanese to
do any extensive sanitary work.
"My recommendation would bo
that tho H. C. & S. Co. bo commu
nicated with and see if they can
not arrango with tho different par
ties to surrender their leases at
once and that they start on build
tho new Kahului camp. Several of
the parties I spoke to signified
thier willingness to movo at once.
"A pig regulation should bo
passed and tho" pigs removed fur

HAWAII'S ARMY POST.
HONOLULU, Oct. 10. Excava
tions for tho foundations of tho
buildings to bo constructed for the
