There is one lot of pasture lands
amounting to two bundled and
seventy six acres. Two hundred
and seventy einht acres will be
planted to pines.
The dairy is already a paying
business while the pino lands are
partly planted. The industry
should be a successful one as the
men who are at the head of the en
terprise are successful business
men and the "pineapple industry is
ono of the best paying enterprises
in tho islands.
STEAM LAUNDIIY TO START.
The directors of the Maui Steam
Laundry Company bavo Fccured a
long lease on a suitable lot of land
near the Wailuku Depot and will
call for bids for tho erection of the
plant soon. A manager has been
employed and is expected to arrive
about tho first of April .
Tho enterprise should be patro
nized by all of the people on the
island as the insanitary condition
of the Uhineso laundries is such
tlfat they are out of tho question.
The erection of the building near
tho depot will facilitate tho delivery
of clothing to people living away
from Wailuku while it is yet so
near town that it can bo readily
reached from tho remotest locali

of the barkentine Fullerton filed a
heavy libel last week in the U. S.
District Court upon that vessel on

in tow of tho S. S. Lansing was en
route to Kihei from Harford, the
anchor chain on the Fullerton
slipped along the "wild cat," an
apparatus over which the chain
slides, and caught the right arm of
the libolhuit, and bruised and in
jured it to a shocking extent. Al
though the vessels were then less
than 500 miles from Port Harford,
tho mastor of the Fullerton refused
his duty to the injured man, and
persisted in continuing the voyigo
to Kihei, a distance of over 1500
He claims that bis ability to
earn his living as a mate at the
scale of $100 a month and his
