The Kihei Homesteaders.
The homesteaders who recently
took up beach lot homesteads near
Kihei nre busy putting up fencing
and shacks on their little, plots of
arid land besides gathering the Ki
awe beans nrd selling it at $15 per
Agents for Honolulu wood dealers
are around offering to buy kiawe
wood from them at $1.60 per cord,
but no one is willing to sell at that
figure. They say they would rather
let the trees die of old age than sell
at $1.50 per cord. As enough trees
to make a cord of wood will produce
a dollar's worth of kiawe beans a
year during the season, the home
steaders will lose nothing by holding
on to the'r kiawe trees until a more
tempting offer is made.
Since bo much talk has come from
the government land department
that the Kihei homesteaders intend
to strip the land of the wood and
then abandon the arid sand plots,
several land hungry people have
come over and are squatting on the
' atrip of land left outlying between
high water mark and the lower edge
of the lots ready to seize the first
claim that might be abandoned. So
if one set of homesteaders really
abandon the lots another set of
squatters are at hand to get the land
which will save the land depart
ment the worry of not knowing what
to do with abandoned homestead lots.
These homestead lots are valued
principally for the kiawe growth on
them estimated at from one hundred
cords to six hundred cords at the
most on each lot.
Oku, a Japanese charcoal burner
on the Island of Lanai, met with a
tragic fate sometimes Inst Monday.

eaten away by crabs. It is sup
posed that he committed suicide as

The Pioneer Mill is equipped with
Cooper Hewitt electric lights of 600
candle power each. The light emit
ted from these lamps is so bright
that it makes the ordinary incende
sent lamps look like twinkling can
dles. When lighted up the interior
of the mill looks like day time, be
sides being very easy on the eyes.
The current consumption is very
low requiring only .52 watts per
candle power per hour, as against
its nearest competitor the Sungsten,
which consumes 1.20 watts per
candle power, hour.
