Studies Our- methods
Sugar growers and manufacturers
of Brazil seem to be awakening to
the necessity of making a careful
study of their chief industry, and
have sent a commission to study
the method of growing and manufac
turing sugar all over the world.
Last week one of the commission
ers arrived on Maui, and went at
once to Puunene, where he was ex
tended every courtesy and where
every thing of interest that he wished
to know wrsexplalnedto birr.
Mr. Samuel Pontual Jr. is the re
presentative of the Brazilian sugar
growers to visit the islands. To a
representative of the ,News,1io told of
the method of sugat growth and
manufacture in that country.
A method very different from that
employed here Is in vogue there.
Instead of one large plantation with
a complete system of railroads and a
modern mill, tho cane is grown by
the individual land owners, who work
their own land and sell their cane to
some mill near by. Such a thing as
irrigation is unknown there, and all
depend upon the natural rainfall for
the necessary water supplj. This of
course makes the methods there pos
sible. There are largo trucks of fer
tile land, easy of access to the many
railroads by which the cane may be
easily transported to any one of a
number of mills that are located all
over the country.
Another thing in their fpvor that
is in strking contrast to the condi
tions here, is the great difference
in wages paid. He says that at uo
time is It necessary to pay more
than tbirty-fivo cents pit day for
labor, and there is always all the
mer desired at that figure or lower.
So plentiful is the fertile land that
fertiliza'K.n is something entirely un
nou-i,, j' '1 om these statements one
ucqin'i.iea with the conditions here
inuct see that tho sugar industry
there i a very simple thing, nnd I
as y( t in its infancy, lie says the
average .ield of cane per aero is
about sixty tons or less.
Mr. IVii'ual snys that of idl the
i'Oui tries seen or read of, the Islands
are fur ttl etui, and says, that if they

According to tho sworn affidavit
of the plaintiff, A. Borba, one of
tho leading merchants of town and
ono of the oldest residents hero, he
;iad not authorized the bringing of
the suit, nor did he knoAV of the ex-
istancc of tho suit until told of it
after it was brought, and the one
to first toll him was tho defendant,
Dr. J. H. Raymond.
A copy of this affidavit was filed
ith the court, and one with tho
plaintiff's reputed attorney, J. M.
Vivas, before tho case was heard in
court. In open court the plaintiff
being sworn testified that he had
not authorized J. M. Vivas nor any
ono else to bring suit. In answer
to tho question, "Did you employ
M. Vivas or anyone else to bring
suit against the defendant, Dr. J.
H, Raymond?" Answer. "No, I
did not." "Did you send for Mr.
Vivas?" "No, he came to me and
advised mo to bring suit." "Did
you know that a suit was brought
in your name againBtDr. Raymond
on or about the 4th day of April?"
"Not until tho suit was brought."
"Who first told you of tho existence
of such a suit?" "Dr. Raymond
first told me."
The next witness called was Ah
Hoy, a Chinese butcher who some
months ago gave Dr. Raymond a
bill of sale of his personal property
as part payment on a debt that ho
owed Dr. Raymond for beef bought
and who later sold a horse to A
Borba that Dr. Raymond claimed
as ono of the animals included in
ine Dili ot sale, and the one in
question involved in tho suit. He
testified that he had gone to Borba
and asked him to bring suit to
which Borba replied, "I don't want
to sue. I don't want any oxponse."
On cross examination Ah Hoy
stated that ho had put up the costs
and that he had employed Mr
Attorney J. M. Vivas on tho
stand testified that Ah Hoy had
como to him. Ho had sold a horso
to Borba which Dr. Raymond
claimed. "I said Borbu was the ono
to bring suit. "I wont to sto Bor

bring any suit, I told him Ah Hoy
would pay all costs and all ox
