RUBBER GROYVBttS ASSOCIA
Last week at the Baldwin Nat
ional Bank of Kaliulni, was held a
meeting of a number of persons in
terested in the rubber industry of
the Hawaiian Islands, and the re
sult of this meeting wns the for
mation of the Hawaiian Rubber
This is probably the lirst organ

and H. A. Bald.vin and .las. L.
D. C. Lindsay, Jas. L. Coke and
V. F. Poguo were appointed a com
mittee to draft a constitution and
by-laws for the association.
Mr. Jared G. Smith of the Unit
ed States Experiment Station in
Honolulu made a'special trip from
Honolulu to be present at this
meeting and took an active in
terest in tho purpose of the meet
ing. He made a number of valu
able suggestions, and his report
upon the experimental tapping of
a small grove of rubber trees of tho
Ceara variety near Lihuo, Kauai,
was most instructive and encourag
ing. Another meeting of the asoeia
tion will bo held within a short
RUtiBBR PROSPECTS GOOD.
The prospects for profitable rub
ber growing in the Territory grow
brighter as trees now growing on
the various rubber plantations de
velop and furhor expo riments
are made with tho trees, of greater
ngo. Probably tho most satisfac
tory report made of tho possibility
of profitable rubber growing was
recently made by Jared G. Smith

Station in Honolulu. Even after
some of the plantations had been
started here on the island Mr.
Smith stated that he considered
the undertaking but an experiment.
While ho hoped for the best he
was not satisfied that rubber could
be profitably grown in the Terri
tory. Recently he conducted care
ful experiments with a grove of
trees that are growing on the is
land of Kauai and tapped them re
gularly for some time. After he
had mado the experiments he un
hesitatingly pronounces rubber the
greatest agricultural goldo mine in
the world to day.
It would be hard to put language
in any stronger terms than this.
Certainly the outlook at NaJiiku
justifies the belief that tho planta
tions there will justify the predic
tion of Director Smith.
The Supremo Court Monday
morning refused to grant the writ
of mandamus against Judge Kepo
ikai, asked for by the Attorney
General'd Department. Deputy
Attornoy Fred. Milvcrton wanted
a transcript of tho testimony in
the case of Worth O. Aiken, Land
Agent, versus II. It. Hitchcock
and Otto Meyers, in which case
Milvcrton appeared for tho Terri
tory before Judge Kepoikai. As
has been previously related, Judge
Kepoikai refused to order the
transcript unless tho Attorney
General's Department would guar
antee tho cost of it. This Peters
and Milvcrton refused to do, hav
ing in mind a similar casein which
then Attorney General Andrews
guaranteed such a payment, and
the Supreme Court sustained the
refusal ot tho Auditor to allow tho
warrant. Action was brought for
a writ'of mandamus toobligo Judge
Kapoikai to order the transcript,
and the case camo up before the
Milvcrton appeared in support
of his petition" County Attorney
D. II. Case for tho defendant.
Milvcrton argued that, although
the Judge's stenographer was not
a regularly employed court officer
and not on a salary, yet the Leg
islature had appropriated money
for tho payment of such expenses.
The defendant's answer to the
petition was that the stenographer
was not employed under Section
1C92 of the Revised Laws. He
never had an ofliicial stenographer
and no salary was appropriated
by the Legislature for such a
position. The- stenographer em
ployed for tho trial of this case
was paid.only for services actually
rendered at ?5 per day.
Tho Supremo Court hold that
this caso differed from the Andrjws
caso in Eome material ways, and
rctuscd to grant tho writ asked for,
instructing tho Attornoy Goneral
to pay for tho transcript out of his
incidental fund. 4
The position of the Attorney
Gonoral if it had be en found correct
would have jesultod in the deplet

At tho banquet? given to the
visiting congressmen at the Moana
Hotel on Mny 27 many 31'gnificant
speeches wore made by the Con
gressmen, Of tho speeches made by
local men no one spoke so much to
tho point as did Judge Sanford B.
His speech in part was as follows:
"The Territory is a very young
baby at present but it has a great
inheritance behind it. More than
three-quarters of a century ago a
few men arrived to inculate Chris
tianity. These men were Ameri
cans, and soon found themselves
confronted with ths task of furnish
ing to a feudal, barbaric people
new ideas, not only in regard to
religion but also in relation to gov
ernment and education as well.
With some opposition, mainly from
settlers of their own race, with
sonio reactions from tho Ilawaiians,
the new departure initiated by
these men gathered force, drawing
into its sphere of infiuenco chiefs
and people and men of high charac
ter from tho small American colony
located here, and representatives
of all other religious denomina
tions, until it became tho public
sentiment of the Hawaiian Is
lands, a moral forco in favor of
justice, order, the institution of
marriage, honest administration,
equality, before the law, and the
supremacy of law.
"Annexation found us an estab
lished and civilized community.
Theso men woro Amciicans, the
business colony was made up main
ly of Americans and this public
sentiment was imbued with Ameri
can sentiment for many years.
Under tho monarchy tho Fourth of
July was second to no "other as a
national holiday though never an
official one. This sentiment I
speak of became the paramount
influence hero, the strongest force,
and though assailed sometimes
proved always stronger than any
opposition. This public sentiment
the Territory has inherited from
the Republic of Hawaii and the
monarchy. For this reason,
among others, it starts with good
prospects and like almost all babies
somewhat hungry for certain
things necessary for its growth.
"Among these are tho refunding
of tho customs revenues. There is
a strong sentiment in favor of it,
and thcro nre some who, like
Speaker Cannon, doubt its policy
as the assistance wo may expect
from tho' United States might be
limited to such revenues and after
the period expires it bo difficult to
got further aid, and also as making
a trouble somo precedent. So tho
question 'appears to have two sides.
We certainly could use the money
to advantage for schoolhouses,
courthouses nnd other public build
ings. "Another want Is harbor Improve
inents. Tho proposed Ililo break
water will, If constructed, chango
the Industrial and produdtivo sltua
on the Island of Hawaii. It will sti
mulate tho building of a now railroad
which will icvolutioniisc a la rye part
ot tho island, and glvo a stimulus to
the demand for farms.
"Protection to cotlee is a. need
which if gratified will yive certainty
of profit to thu cultivation of colTeo
and make it an enterprise that wi'l
be most attractive to farmhij,' men.
I need not pursue this subject as one
of our visitors will discuss the tariff
in its relation to us.
