C. A. Rice thought that before
the Chamber went on record as fa
voring only eight to ten acres, the
cannery company should be given a
chance to explain its need for nine
Mr. I3randt again declared him
self as in favor of giving the can
nery company enough land for can
nery purposes, but did not wish to
allow a foot upon which to quarter
labor, which it might seek to con
trol, or would control. The day of
business of that sort had passed in
C. A. Rice offered an amendment
to the effect that the government
(in addition to the ten acres pro
vided for in the resolutions) cut up
15 acres adjacent to the cannery
site into house lots, to be sold to la
borers. Mr. McBrydc. of the Lawai can
nery, said that five acres were suf
ficient for strictly cannery purposes.
He was not opposed, however, to
the amendment proposed by Mr.
Rice, realizing that buildings would
be necessary at Kapaa which would
not be required in many other
Mr. Spitz recited at length the
handicap under which the Kapaa
cannery would labor on account of
infrequent shipping facilities, ncces
sitating larger storage room, and
named other things which would
require an extraordinary amount of
The resolutions of Mr. Broad
bent, as amended by Mr. Rice, pass
ed unanimously, as follows :
"Whereas, Proceeding upon and
under the provisions of the laws of
the Territory of Hawaii, citizens of
the United States of America have
taken up and homcstcaded tracts of
land at Waipouli, near Kapaa, Is
land of Kauai, for the purpose of
growing pineapples and engaging
in other agricultural pursuits, with
a definite understanding and agree
ment that pineapple canning facih
tics would be supplied to them, an
effort to provide such canning fa
cilities was, and is being, made, but
has met with hostile treatment, of
ficially and otherwise, at Honolulu,
and privately at Kapaa, Kauai.
"Whereas, Owing to the said hos
tility and ooposition, the work of
establishing a cannery at or near
.-the said Waipouli homesteads, Ka
paa, Kauai, has been stopped; the
homesteaders there have been
thrown into a state of uncertainty,
discouragement and dismay, . many
of them thinking seriously of giv
ing up altogether their original pur
pose of growing pineapples and
even of abandoning their home
steads, upon which they have al
ready expended large sums of
money, their time and their ener
"And Whereas, Should these
homesteads be abandoned, or prove
unprofitable as a result of the non
fulfillment of the agreement in re
gard to a pineapple cannery, it
would give a black eye to the home
steading idea and program in the
Territory of Hawaii, and would be
a detriment and injury to the good
name and fame of the Island of
Kauai as a suitable diversified agri
cultural and homesteading district:
therefore, be it

the Makee Sugar Company, or its
representatives, to build a railroad

Mr. McMryde of Homcslca.

that the resolutions pass. He hit'

Port Allen for improvement in thi
way had withdrawn that support ii

FUTURE OF PINEAPPLES.
It is doubtful that, for some time
to come, perhaps, the dream of
fancy prices on the part of pine
apple growers in Hawaii will be
realized. In fact, the chances are
on the side'of very much lower fig
ures, and discouragement rather
than enthusiasm. This is not said
vvith a view to casting a damper
:j.on efforts now being put for
v.ud. and planned for the future,
n tlii.i i l.tiid; the intention merely
;.'i,is to draw attention tt) what k
lc'-Wiiiable possibility, however
For sometime 1 lie indication?
'mve been that the pineapple out
put is neck and neclc with the dc j
mand. There is a constant increase
in the supply, and that condition of
things will continue for a long time
to come. The area allotted to the
growth of pineapples is being stead
ily enlarged by the addition of new
tracts here and there throughout
he group from time to time. While
this is going on, nothing is being
done to enlarge the market, or in
crease the demand; as a matter of
fact, the demand has not been in
creased, except in a natural way, in
the past several years.
, Demand and supply must run to
gether. When the former weakens,
he latter' must suffer. It looks at
.the present that the supply will so
ar overrun tne demand that prices
will drop; and the indications are
that we are very close to that pe
riod now. In time, of course, the
production of pines will reach a
naximufu, at least in Hawaii, and
he market will again be given a
Imnce. It is then tint the local
ower will realize his hopes. Rut
for the next five years there is little
reason to assume that fortunes will
e made in pineapples by the grow
ers, and those who break even in
'hat period may consider them
elves fairly fortunate.
