Rubber The visit of Mr. F. T. P. YVaterhouse of Honolulu to
Report- the rubber districts of thTT tropical districts furtlior
south and including Ce.tlon and the Straits Sottlemonts whore tho
finest rubber plantations of tho world are to be found should, be of
great value to the rubber nx n of the islancs who have many
thousands invested in the industry hero in the Territory.
Rubber has proven to bo a great financial success in tho islands
where Mr. Watcrhou.se has visited and every indication points to
successful rubber -grow ing in the islands hero.
Mr. Waterhouse went to tho rubber districts of Ceylon and near
by islands as a special representative of the Territorial Govern
ment and also as a representative of the Rubber l! rowers Associ
ation of Hawaii.
Before he irakes any report of his observations ho will visit the
rubber districts of Hawaii and will then mine to Maui and make
observations here and be in a better position to compare conditions
and results in the different places he has visited.
It may he well to note the fact that he found the rubber planta
tions in Ceylon and other islands growing the same kind of rubber
that is extensively grown on this island.
It may be that tho rubber here will not come into bearing as
early as it does in the more tropical countries which he has visited
but the results should be about the same.
Diversified industries for the territory are easential to the pro
per development of the islands and rubber bids fair to be one of
the greatest industries of the group.
Exchange The present administration seems to be more in
ol Lands, favor of exchanging lands unsuitable for home
steads for those held in fee that are suitable for that purpose than
any previous administration and in order to guard against any
unbusinesslike exchange whereby the government would get the
worst of the bargain a number of the heads of t he depart merits are
making personal inspection of the lands both of the government
and those lands that are offered for exchange.
We have never been very enthusiastic over the proposed small
farm scheme except on a very limited scale. Diversified industries
offer a possibility for further development.
The pineapple industry is a.geat success but it can hardly be
called a small farm proposition as is understood on the cost for the
reason that it requires too much to start tho industry.
Rubber requires many years and great expense before the party
who goes into it can hope for remuneration.
There are small tracts of lands however that are suitable for
homes and where one may hope for good returns on his invest
ment and labor within a short time. Most of these tracts of lands
are held by private concerns but some at least are willing to make
an exchange for larger tracts thatare unsuitable for homes but
are valuable for the purpose for which they are wanted. The gov
ernment is. making a wise move in this direction and we hope to
see good results from the plan within a short time.
A Strange The trial of the Hana Japanese for the murder of
Custom. tho girl with whom he was in love has brought
out the existence of a strHiige custom mm. tig the Japanese who are
followers of the teachings of Buddha.
One of these customs is t he taking of ones life for what is con
sidered by them as a holy purpose in order to reach the greatest
gloiy in the future world.
A prominent Japanese here has explained that the agreement to
commit suicide by the lovers of liana was in keeping with the
teachings and customs practiced in Japan nud that it is believed
there that in such cases the two lovers would he united in marriage
in the world to come and dwell forever together on a lotus flower
of everlasting existence.
As this is a custom and practice among many of the followers of
Buddha it will be seen that it is a part of their religion and takes
from the crime some of its horror even if that custom is not coun
tenanced by our laws or customs. y.'if

Office, Circuit Court, 2nd Circu'
a Large Sum.
On Thursday of this week tlir
a nitration of a claim olVarl Wal
ilf.vcr against the Wuiluku Sng.ir
Co. was begun.
There have bet n endless chargt s
of failure to carry out the terms i f
the contract on the part of the Sugar
Coitipan.v by Mr. Vnlilt,vir, while
the Company claims that Mr. AVal
tleyer has been derelict in his tint its
in rushing the work of cmir-tructing
the tunnels for the development ol
water for the Conrpany.
Mr. W'aldeycr has the reputation
of being a shrewd business man and
a hard worker ami g rusher, which
is not the reputation that the litters
of the plantation manager would
set m(to give him. His work for the
past ti n years on Maui is too well
known not to count in his favor.
The one side claims gross neglect
on tho part of tho other which the
other sitle strenuously denies an 1
lmints to the fact that if the plan
tation hail caused the failure of Mr.
Waldcycr it would have been gaimr
to a large extent, as the plant which
Mr. Waldcycr had established was
worth many thousands of dollars f . r
the purpose of completing the work
hut could not have been sold foroiie
tcnth of its value to any one else as
the cost of removing it would have
been too great. On the other hand
the plantation claims that it wanted
water and especially desired to have
the work completed as soon as pos
sible. Mr. Waldcycr has kept accurate
records of everything pertaining to
his work and a copy of each letter
and of each requisition lnj made on
the plantation for supplies to he
delivered by the plantation.
A part of the original contract
called for tho free delivery by the
plantation of all track equipment
and all camp and food supplies.
One of the letters to the Sugar
Company, that caused everyone to
laugh, was from Mr. Waldcyer in
which he acknowledged the receipt
of rails for the track into the tun
nels. The rails were to be furnished
by the Company for this purpose
hut no specific dimensions were given
in the contract. Mr. Waldcycr wrote:
"I have felt at all times that I am
competent to checkmate any move
on the part of your manager to hind
er the progress of the work but 1
take oil my hat to your manager
and acknowledge that lain int. The
rails sent me I flint are thirty feet
long wliich makes it impossible for
me to pack thcni over the narrow
and tortuous trial nor could I use
them even if they were delivered to
the tunnels. 1 presume the reason
that you did not send longer rails
was the fact that you did not have
any longer ones on the plantation."-
Mr. Waldcycr was on the witness
stand all diiy 'Thursday and will
take more time for his statement Ijc
fore the Imard. lie appears to he
making an excellent witness and has
every transaction and every conver
sation down in writing ami his luniks
ready to prove the truth of his con
tentions. . It is of course out of the qustion
to make any forecast of what the
result of the finding will be until
the testimony is heard on both sides.
The lioaril consists of J. l. (ialt
of Honolulu, L. ISarkhausen and
W. F. I'ogue.
The contestants have .stipulated'
that they will abide by the decision
of the hoard and their finding will
therefore he binding.
W. A. Kinney represents the.
company and A. (i. M. IttiU-rtson
represents Mr. Waldcycr.
