tates on Hawaii.
At eight o'clock, the hour ap
pointed for the feast, a hungry lot
of men sat down to a sumptuous
dinner served under the direction of

seen fit to call on mo to say a few
words. I am glad he did. so and I

full justice to a good dinner, butas
-a speaker, I am afraid I am a
failure. Wc are gathered hefy to

Plantation. We all admit that you

I have been commissioned to pre

It is a handsome' gift and Mr.
Wells prizes it highly.
The retirement of Mr. Wells from
Wailuku marks an epoch in the his
tory of the plantation.
In 1S90 Mr. Wells became the
manager of the Waihee Plantation
At-that time Waihee was a separate
plantation, Wailuku was another,
and Waikapu was another. The
combined output of sugar for tlie
three plantations was then four
thousand ono hundred tons. In
1S93 Mr. Wells came to Wailuku as
the manager of the Wailuku planta
tion. He had for some time been
planning the consolidation of the
three estates and the following year
the consolidation was effected and
Mr. Wells became the manager
which position ho held until his re
tirement on the first day of this
Under the management of Mr.
Wells the water system has bo(jn
perfected and thousands of acres of
land added to the estate. The es

Mr. Wells is ono of the oldest
plantation men in the territory. He
has been in plantation work twenty
eight years and has been manager
for twenty-live years. He leaves

During twenty-three years of his
management Mr. H. Streubeek lias
been with him as chief engineer.
Mr. II. 15. Penbnllow is tlie new
manager of the plantation. He lias
worked himself up to bis present
position by rapid strides and will
doubtless keep the plantation up to
its past dividened paying mark.
Land For Homes
Over in Ka-u, Hawaii, near the
Wniohinu district, there are a lot
of old Hawaiians who are not
afraid to settle down on govern
nient land with tho prospect of
losing it if "they do not abide by 1
live or ten-year residence agree
niout. A number of Jhese- have
made application to' Land Commis
sioner Pratt for small tracts of land
on which they can build tlieir
homes and live for the rest of their
lives. There arc about twenty ap
plicants for land hure, and from
calculations prepared in tho Land
Commissioner's oHice, they will ho

Cowboys at Wainioa, Hawaii,
have also made application for
small tracts of lands on which they
can build homes and keen a small
garden. There are twenty or thirty
wild horseback riders who want a
small plot of ground of from three
to live acres, and this matter will
be taken up immediately by tho
Land-Commissioner. Mr. Pratt
thinks that this Hawaii mountain
land contains some of the finest
spots in the Territory.
