According to statements in the
Honolulu press, Kauai is to have
one of the largest pineapple can
ning factories in the Territory. And
it is to be located at Kapaa, right
near the beach. According to Mr.
Starrett, the government will allow
a homesteader to take laud to the
amount of forty acres. According
to promoter Lutted, the invisable
but enormously rich pineapple Co. ,
then steps in and plows, plants and
cultivates the pines until the
harvesting of tin- first crop, before
asking the homesteader for a single
cent's return. To make it plainer,
Mr. Lutted's Co., will advance
money to the extent of one hundred
dollars per acre to the pine grower,
this sum being a fair estimate on
the cost of producing the first crop,
which he claims will be sufficiently
large to repay the hundred dollars,
which would give the planter two
to three rattoon crops on the velvet.
Another "cinch" which is offer
ed by the government, is wherein
a number of would-be homestead
ers form an association, and apply
in a lump for so many acres, and
to whom exclusive rights arc given
for certain lots. This disposes of
all possibility of any one getting a
look in on any of the lots applied
for by the ' ' association ' ' and nt once
places the homesteader in a position
where he can simply sit by and
conjure a picture of his golden in
come when the factory once gets
If the establishing of a pineapple
cannery in Kapaa is the bonanza
which it is said to be, there seems
little doubt but that sufficient capi
tal could be raised right here in Li
hue within five minutes to provide
a factory to accomodate all the
pines that could be grown in Ka
paa within the next decade. There
is no denying the fact that there is
money to be made out of pines,
and that a canning factory in Ka
paa would be a genuine good in
vestment, but under the present
scheme, that of soliciting funds
from outsiders for the erection of
such a plant, indicates one of two
things, either our local capitalists
areasleep to the advantages of a
lucrative business, or they are too
wide awake to be dragged into a
thing which they have reasons for
believing not as represented. At
any rate, capital for the construc
tion of the biggest canning factory
in the Territory is being secured
from outside parties, which to say
the least, doesn't savor of being
just the right ctunt.

KEKAHA ROAD TO THE BAD
Special to The GurJen Island,
Kkkaha, March 17. A mud
hole which is causing many auto
owners and drivers no little an
noyance, is that which is the result
of evident carelessness on the part
of the plantation in allowing the
surplus flume water to flood the
road. Several machines have been
hung up at this point, and com
plaints concerning this state of af
fairs, are allowed to go unheeded.
There is considerable traffic over
this stretch of road, and the peo
ple have a right to expect better
oouditions than at present exist.
