THE BIG LAWAI CANNERY.
The cannery of the Kauai Fruit & Land Company is situated in
the Lawai valley, and is on the belt road between 'Koloa ;md the
Kalaheo homesteads. During the year a very large addition was made
to the storehouse section of the cannery, and important improvements
in the equipment completed. The "f.awai Cannery." as it is famil
iarly called, lias "made good" i-i a business way. and its future is quite
promising. Following are principal, general facts concerning this cor
poration, and its business: '

PRINGEVILLE PLANTATION CO
To the unitiated, the above name
would probably suggest a sugar es
tate. Princeville Plantation was
once famous for its cane, but it is
now a great cattle ranch. It is near
the village of Ilanalei, and is
managed by Mr. W. F. Sanborn.
The first plantation near Ilana
lei was a cofTee proposition, start
ed along about 1840 by Messrs. G.
Rhodes & Company. 1 his was sold
out to R. C. Wyliie.in 1856. and in
1858 he began planting cane there.
This would make Piinceville real
