THE GARDEN ISLAND, TUESDAY, MARCH 19, 1912,
To be Incorporated under the laws of the Territory of Hawaii.
PURPOSE OF ORGANIZATION.
This Company is to be organized for the purpose of con
structing ami operating a central sugar mill, railroad &c. in the
District of North San Carlos, Philippine Islands, where con
tracts have been secured with the principal planters, who are at
present grinding theit cane with primitive three-roller mills.
By the terms of the contracts, which run for thirty years from
1914, the Mill Company is to receive 40 of all the sugar pro
duced in payment for hauling cane, manufacturing sugar and
providing containers for same.
LOCATION OF PLANTATIONS.
San Carlos lies on the Northeastern coast of the island of
Negros, which island produces approximately 40 of all the
sugar raised in the Philippines. I' it. i- il.ted from the rest of
th: island by mountain chains and m.-. little community by
itself, a factor which contributes to the favorable labor condi
tions that it enjoys. It produces cane of an excellent quality.
It is favored with a natural harbor, safe at all seasons, near
which the mill is to be located.
PRODUCTION OF SUGAR.
The planter signing the contracts produced sufficient cane
during the 1910-11 season to yield about 7,500 tons of sugar,
with modern methods. They have already increased their areas
in cane, and will continue to do so until all is under cultivation.
The yield for 1913-14 should be 12,000 tons of sugar, the min
imum required under the terms of the contract being approx
imately 9,500 tons. As the planters will realize more from
their 60 of 96 sugar turned out by the mill than they at pre
sent receive from the sale of all their low grade sugar,, and be
saved from the milling expense as well, those not already par
ties to the contract will be eager to sign, as some of them have
already signified, and the Mill should have no difficulty in se
curing sufficient cane to turn out the 12,000 tons, its initial ca
pacity. Ultimately it is pl.umed to include the entire district
which will produce cane sufficient for a 20,000 ton crop.
MILL AND BUILDING: To fulfill the requirements of the
Company's contracts, it will be necessary to erect a mill
having a daily capacity of 600 tons of cane, with provisions
made to increase to 1,000 tons. This, erected at San
Carlos, will cost about $400,000.00

II BAYVIEW HOTEL
I The Bav View Hotel, Waimea's
' popular commercial hostlery, i s
undergoing a reconstruction which,
, when completed, will be one of the
! finest in the Territory. An extra
story with eight additional rooms
will be added, which will provide
ample accomodation for any num
ber of tourists which might be ex
pected. Provisions are made for
a hrgc, airy, open air dining
room, to extend the entire length
of the building. An alcove ar
rangement will permit the large
lounging room adjoining the din
ing room, to be used for the pur
pose in case of wind or sloruiv
weather. A large lobby is provid
ed for the guests, being so ar-
ranged as to secure privacy in
writing, etc. The sleeping rooms'
will all be upstairs, with the ex
ception of one. A total of nearly '
five thousand dollars will be spent
in the reconstruction, while a large
sum will be spent in refurnishing .
the hotel from top to bottom. ;
The Bav View Annex, which!
was recently built near the beach,
has become so extremely popular,
that the management is thinking
seriously of putting up another
building. The Hay View Hotel,
with its popular annex, will afford
accomodations equal to those ob
tainable any wheje in the Twrri

reserve near Henry ville are reap

from the rabbits of that neighbor
hood, according to informa.ion
brought to the office of Charles C.
Dean, secretary of the state beard
of forestry. Thousands of ra .
bits, it is declared, have I. ecu
trapped and sent to the Indfr.ua-

cold weather. The rabbits became
so numerous on the reserve that
permission was given to trap them,
though no shooting was allowed.
Several persous living near the re
serve have made a living trapi ing
the animals this weather, it is said.
Rows of trees at the reserve, wl ich
