Kula Farmers Will
Not GiyeUp Store
See Benefits of Co-operation Kihei
Homesteaders Form Organization
and Elect Officers.
On Monday of this week the Kula
Farmers' Cooperative Association sent
their second monthly load of produce
to Haiku, conflating of potatoes, beans
and onions. The produce sold at the
following prices: Potatoes, $1.60;
white beans, dried, 5 cents a pound,
and onions, 75 cents per crate of 60
pounds. The customers seem satis
fled and the association is well pleas
ed with this feature of Its work, for
it has enabled It to accomplish Its
aim of enabling the consumer to get
his supplies at a fair price, and yet
returning to the farmer a preater
share of the consumer's dollar than lie
would otherwise receive.
The affairs of the association have
been In a rather trying shape during
the past few months owing to a lack
of working capital, and the question
of discontinuing its store feature on
this account has been under considera
tion. At a meeting held last Sunday
the question came up for final set
tlement, either the members must
put in more capital or the store feat
ure be abandoned. The spirit Bhown
at this meeting would have been an
ispiration to any man interested in the
welfare of real farmers. Almost with
out exception the men who actually
work the soil with their own hands
were ready to put in more money
rather than see the association die,
They spoke of the fact that the asso
ciation had not only sold them their
supplies at reasonable prices, but had
Lbenefited all the other farmers by
forcing the other stores to be more
moderate In their charges for the
same goods which the association
handled, and they expressed the be-
lief that were the association's store
to be dropped the other stores would
return to the old scale of high prices
They spoke, too, of the fact that be-
fore the association had been formed
th.-j- could not obtain 'air prlcen for
their produce, but that now the other
buyers were obliged to payy all the
farmers a fair price, knowing that if
they did not do so the farmers would
send it through the association. There
is no doubt in their minds as to what
the association had done for them and
for all the Kula farmers, and they had
no intention of allowing it to die.
At the previous meeting the pres
ident. George Copp, had resigned, and
at this meeting Edwin C. Moore, who
has been secretary-treasurer from the
start and acting agent for the past
six months, announced that his new
position under the Extension Division
of the Experiment Station would pre
vent him from continuing as an offl
cer of the association so that he, also,
must resign. He explained that he did
so with the keenest regret, but that
his resignation would make very little
difference as far as his ability to help
the association was concerned, for his
new work required him to assist In
forming cooperative associations and
to encourage and assist those already
formed. It was voted to hold an elec
tion of new officers at the next meet
ing to be held September 5.
Kihel Homesteaders Organize.
Two meetings were held at Kihel
during the past week, looking to the
formation of a cooperative associa
tion among the Kihei homesteaders.
Edwin C. Moore, of the Extension
Division was present at both meet
ings to talk with the homesteaders of
the advantages to be derived from
working together and to assist in the
organizing. Practically the only crop
at Kihei is the algaroba, both the
beans and the wood for firewood. At
these meetings the question was dis
cussed of whether the homesteaders,
by organizing, could put out their pro
duct in a more valuable form and
thereby get more for it. It was sug
gested that the purchase of an engine,
wood saw. wood splitter ana bean cut
ter would enable the homesteaders to
offer wood sawed to stove length and
split, which would bring them more
than by selling all their wood as cord-
wood; and would also enable them to
sell their beans in a form much less
bulky and more desired by the small
feeders on the islands who find the
bulky, whole beans very inconvenient
to handle. Such an outfit would not
cost more than the homesteaders
could raise among themselves, and
should they find themselves able to
work together, and their business
prosper, they might eventually be
able to gettthe machinery to make
At the meeting on Saturday the
homesteaders decided to form an or
ganization, and elected the following
officers: President, Joseph Welch;
vice-president, Mrs. Chatles Wilcox;
secretary, J. P. Cockett; treasurer,
Chaa. Wilcox; and agent J. P. Cock
ett. These ofiicers, with three addi
tional members, were appointed a
committee to draft a constitution, and
report at the next meeting of the as
sociation to be held August 7th at the
Japanese school house at Kihei.

problems now confronting the Terri

units. It is difficult for those not ex

to realize the necessity for careful sys
To BuildSugar Mill
Company Organized to Handle Cane
of Small Growers Bank Also to
be Organised to Finance Farmers
An independent sugar mill for the
district of Hilo is no longer a dream.
A company which will finance the
proposition was organized Sunday and
already more than the minimum paid
in capital required is in the hands of
the temporary treasurer.
The company will be known as the
Kaiwikl Milling Company and the mill
will be erected on the old Correa lot
in Kaiwiki, a few miles back of the
town. The promoters expect the niill
to begin operations early in March of
next year, the first crop to be har
vested from 500 acres of cane, which
Is now being cultivated.
The mill, which will have a capa
city of twelve tons of sugar a day, or
100 tons of cane, will be built by the
Honolulu Iron Works. Landed on the
pier in Hilo, it will cost the company
about $32,000. Its total cost, when
completed, will approximate $50,000.
The company is organized with a cap
ital stock of $60,000, divided into 3000
shares of twenty dollars par value
each. Provision will be made to in
crease the capital to a quarter of a
million dollars, whenever such in
crease shall be deemed advisable.
About 150 persons, 'all Portuguese,
have subscribed for stock, the major
portion of the Initial capitalization al
ready having been taken. Nearly all
the stock subscribed for has been paid
The organization meeting held In
Kaiwiki last Sunday was a most en
thusiastic one, among those present
being Senhor Agnello Pessoa, Portu
guese consul-general, who subscribed
for stock in the company, thus setting
an example that was most salutary
among his countrymen. . The follow
ing were selected as the temporary
officers of the Kaiwiki Milling Com
pany: Peter Sllva, president; Manuel Pe
reira, Jr., vice-president; Ezekiel Vie
lra, secretary; Michael de F. Spin
ola, treasurer, and Antonio M. Cabri
nha, auditor. With these officers, the
following will compose the board of
directors: Joseph da Rocha, John Per-
eira, jose Francisco Ferreira, M. T.
Ferreira, J. S. Coelho, Mariano Dlnlz,
and Mariano Cabral.
As soon as the Kaiwiki Milling Com
pany is well under way another in
dependent mill will be promoted for
another section of the district of Hilo.
A bank, which will shortly be organ
ized, will likely attend to the financial
end of the new concerns. Hilo Portu
guese claim that the salvation of the
small farmers in this district can only
be brought about through the exist
ence of one or more independent mills.
The experiment will be watched with
much interest throughout Hawaii, it is
claimed, as on the success of the Kai
wiki Milling Company much of the
future of the small farmer w'.ll depend.

thereby earning a $700 bonus over pnd
above the $50,000 contract price. Threo
new cells designed by thin engineering
lirra have been connected with the
two old cehs yolied up na one. The
contract called for delivery of the new
apparatus August 15.
The quadruple effect has a total
heating surface of 26,150 square feet.
Its guaranteed capacity is ninety-three
tons of water evaporated per hour.
The exhaust steam from the boilers
enters the first cell at a pressure of
five pounds and enters the fourth cell
at twenty-three pounds vacuum.
The Maui Agricultural mill with its
increased evaporator capacity will
never have to slow down grinding to
allow the boiling house to catch up.
