For Const Markets, shipping to the const the opportunity
is afforded for the growing and profitable shipping of tropical
fruits to the mainland that heretofore was not possible.
There are many varieties of fruits that can be grown here that
must now reach the consumers on the costs from far distant
climes, if at all, and at a cost that is now prohibitive except to a
There are varieties of the mango that far surpawe the varieties
now growing in the islands that can be shipped and should find a
ready market. Among these is the Mulgoba Maugo a fruit that has
a small seed, is entirely free from fibre and is far superior to the
eedhners now rrrowiner and in
when full grown weighs twenty
teen to twenty days after it is ripe.
sirable as a shipper and as it commands a figure of five shillings
each in the London markets its excellence of flavor must- be con
ceded. The Cambodia, the Tolapai, the Amiri, the Paheri and
tha Fernandez, the favorite of Bombay, India, are other varieties
that are all shippers and are of excellent quality.
All of these fruit trees are now being grown by Gerrit P.Wilder
of Honolulu who is grafting them on native stock and they will soon
be on the market, Mr. Wilder is an enthusiastic horticulturist and
while he follows this hobby as a past time he is shipping the
young trees to persons, who wish to buy them.
If some of the many thousands of acres of land that is now
practically idle were pat to the growing of this class of fruit for
the Coast market, the enterprise should be a moso profitable one
for the facilities for shipping from Kahului is now equal to that of
Honolulu, while the value of land suitable for the growing of the
trees is very much less on this island than it is on the island of
r Another fruit that should be a winner is the growing of the
Trapp-Avocado. This fruit is the best in flavor of any avocado
and has a great advantage over the ordinary variety in t,hat it is as
round as an orange and therefore much better adapted to shipping.
The pursers of the steamers calling in at Kahului make a ' point
of buying all the avocados they can get at each trip uid they say
they find a ready market for them in the city at twenty-five cents
If a price anywhere near this figure can be had for the fruit a
good profit should be made in growing the better variety at even
one-fifth of this figure.
The mangostine, probably the most delicious tropical f,ruit
grown, has not so far proven a success in the islands, but there
are many varieties of tropical fruits that should be made a great
The San Francisco That such a tempest should have been
School Affair. raised over the efforts of grown Japan,
ese persons to enter the schools of San Francisco seems strange
to those who are at aU familiar with the workings of the school
system of the islands. The same conditions have come up here
repeatedly in a very great many of our public schools and have
been met in every case without the slightest friction.
Those who are at all acquainted with the character of the Japan
ese children make not the shghest objection to rheui as pupils in
the schools as they are cleanly in person, obedient to their teach
ers and are less inclined to chuss trouble among the other children
than some other nationalities.
From the Coast papers the objection to the Japanese seems to be
caused entirely by the efforts of the grown men to enter the prim
ary rooms and learn the language, and our customs while necessa
rily occupying seats with little children and consequently keeping
our own children back through their lack of knowledge of our
That they are objectionable on this goound must be conceded by
all fair minded persons as would grown persons of our own
No grown person, regardles of color or race can be tolerated in
a class of small children. The course pursued in the public
schools here which applies to all nationolities alike is to refuse ad
mission of anyone over fifteen years of age to any but the high
school courses and as the seats in the primary rooms are made
especially for the small children the large pupils are so uncom
fortable in the small seats that they prefer to att-d private
schools to being cramped up in the seats suitable fo 'le chil
dren. This rule has been applied here for years wit' thought
to the Japauese and applied to all classes alike.
It seems that in the controversy in San Francisco i lack of a
little tact has caused the Japanese to feel that they are being
singled out as an object of ill-feeling and are being discriminated
against when a different course would put them on the same basis
that all persons should be treated.
While it is unquestionably the right and privilege of the San
Franciscans to confer favor upon whom they please and refuse to
confer the same on others the exercise of little diplomacy would
injure no one and would be to the best interest of all.
Those Suggestions to At the last meeting of the County
the Legislature. Board of Supervisors suggestions
were made by Senator-elect W. J. Coelho and others to the Board
that they might present them to their constituents for their study
and such of them as were thought worthy of approval to be pre
sented to the Legislature through roccommendations of the Board
The reporters of the Honolulu papers seem to have gotten the
matter twisted and many people seem to think the Board was
responsible for the suggestions which was not the case except as
to the change of date of their meeting and one or two other sug
gestions of like tenor.
From expressions from members of the Wailuku Improvement
Association and many other prominent citizens it is evident that
some of the suggestions will meet with the bitterest opposition.
One of those is the effort to have the District Magistrates appointed
by any other power thau the Chief Justice or the Supreme Court.

prospective bidders to this list. They
were at liberty to submit tenders of
other lands but thesej are the lands
that have been especially desired by
the government and we have had in
view in making this Lanai exchange.
It was thought that we might effect
an exchange with the Bishop Estate
whereby we could sesure the Bishop
wharves on the water front but they
are held at from $125,000 to $130,

$107,000 put on the Lanai lands by
the government so I do not think that
the deal will be effected."
