I'm getting bowed and I've long
O friend from our Southern land,
Bui a voice from the past thrills
my soul today, .
At the clasp of your strong,
Many years have passed since you
and I met,
Though it seems scarce a day
Since we buried our dead, with the
battle rain wet,
On that hill by the Tennessee.
A bugler in gray came down to the
And signaled a truce to the blue;
Two captains rode out, 'mid the
wrack and the gore,
I was one, and the other was you;
We met 'neath a tree, where two
young soldiers lay;
We shouted, but they gave no
The one was your brother, .who'd
fall'n m the fray,
The other was brother of mine.
There, under the oak, we made
them one grave,
And your eyes and my eyes were
As we cut in the bark: "They'w'ere
foemen and brave!"
Then each turned and rode back
to his camp.
Like a true man "you fought, till
fighting was vain,
Fr those who drew sword on
But I've prayed since that day to
meet you again,
And to talk of our brothers who
To talk of the hunger, the march,
and the strife,
Of the snows and the summers'
And to sav: 'We aie stronger for
knowing that life,
Though mine was success yours
But a truce, a truce we forever
Has come for you and for me;
We are brothers at heart, through
the brothers who ileep
On that hill bv the Tennessee.
Petty Thieves Around
Cases of petty thievery have been
reported as occurring at various
places around Lihue in the past
week or two. The police have been
on constant watch for the culprits,
but as vtt nave not secured evi

Filipinos are suspected, and one
case seems to support this theory
A iMUpino was seen to leave cer
tain premises near Lihue, and a
short time later it was discovered
that a valuable chicken was miss
ing. Filipinos have been noticed
prowling around other places.

Philippine Islands, recently pub
lished t h e following concerning
the visit to that locality ot Mana
ger C. Hedeman, of the Honolulu
Iron Works, and George Fairchild,
formerly of Kealia, Kauai:
"General Manager C. E. Hede
mannof the Honolulu Iron Works,
who returned yesterday from Neg
ros, where he visited the San Fran
cisco Central, which was manufac
tured by his company, has express
ed himself, in an interview with a
representative of the Enterprise
Press as being delighted with what
he saw of the Negros section and
expected t o be equally as well
pleased with the Panay when he
completes his visit on this island
Mr. Hedemann was accompanied
by Senator Fairchild, Mr..T. S.
Holt and Mr. James Sco'.t during
his Negros visit.
WHAT THE PLANTERS GET
-Mr. lieaemann said tnat one
man in San Carlos, who has a con
tract with the San Carlos Milling
Company, told him that after pay
ing the San Carlos Company forty
er cent of the sugar extracted
from his cane, he now received
thirteen per cent more sugar than
he ever did before from the cane
aud also received $1.30, gold, more
per picul, in New York than-he for
merly did for the sugar made.
Another planter under contract
said that he now got one ton of su
gar from eight tons of cane hauled
to the mill, where formerly he got
one ton of sugar tc fifteen tons of
Mr. Hedemann said that nothing
but the bagasse is used for fuel
at the mill, and that 94 per cent of
the sucrose is secured from the
cane, which is a little in r.dvance
of what was contracted for by the
company and that the large mill is
handling 750 tons of cane a day
although it was built to handle on
ly 450 tons a day, meaning a day
of twenty-four hours.
The prominent visitor expressed
himself as highly pleased with the
services of Manager Bell of the San
Carlos plant, and with the excellen
work of Mt Scott, the sugar ma
chinery expert of the company, as
well as very grateful to Manager
T. S. Holt of the Pacific Comnier
cial Company, for his material assis'
Asked regarding his opinion of
what is needed for the assistance of
the sugar industry , Mr. Hedemann
said that his idea of what is requir

by leaps and bounds is the install-

POLICE FORCES OF
The Maui News contained the
following item of particular in
terest on Kauai:
"According to Sheriff Crowell the
county is now getting along with
17 fewer policemen than before the
retrenchment policy struck the
board of supervisors, about two
months ago. The men on the force
are getting less salaries and doing
more for it than they ever did be
fore."' An examination of the records
of County Sheriff W. H. Rice dis
closes the tact that there are only
eighteen policemen on the entire
island of Kauai, or just one less
than the number the sheriff of
Maui finds he can dispense with.
ation of modern .machinery in the
form of up to date mills. He said
that while his firm is not the only
concern putting out good mills, he
believes that they are in a better
position io furnish the best kind of j
factories for the Philippines now
than any other company.
The visitors will go out to Tig
hanan to visit the Tia Eugenia fac
tory on the rroperty of Sr. Jose
Zuleta, which plant was built by
the Honolulu Iron Works also, to
day, and sail for Manila ou the
"Rubi" this afternoon,
Messrs. Fairchild and Scott will
accompany Mr. Hedemann on the
return trip to the capital.
Mr. Fairchild said that he consid
ered . that one o t the principal
drawbacks to the coming of capital
here was the limiting of holding of
land by any one corporation to
2,500 acres. He said that if the lim
it should be raised to 10,000 cap
italists would jump at the chance
to come here and develop the coun
try. He said that those who made
the law should consider that there
are 7,000,000 acres of undeveloped
land" here, and that the 2,500 limit
is too small entirely.
