THE GARDEN ISLAND, TUESDAY, NOV. 4. 1919
- From the Other Islands -
From Rubber to Bananas
A proposition to take over the lands
tOf tho Nahiku Rubber Company, Ltd.,
on the east coast of Maul for the pur
post of converting them into a banana
plantation was recently indorsed by
the directors of the company, and is
now up to the stockholders. In case
the action of the directors is approved,
the company will sell its property in
the Nahiku district to a banana grow
ing company to be organized by W. A.
Anderson, formerly manager of the
rubber company, but now a resident
Mr. Anderson, who has been engaged
In the banana shipping business for
several years, states that he has defi
nite assurance of the needed transpor
tation as well as ample backing of
mainland capital. He proposes trading
vto shareholders of the rubber company
stock, share for share, stock in his new
company at par value of $15. Or he
will agree to purchase back all shares
In the new company so issued, within
one year, at $10 per share.
The holdings of the rubber company
aggregate about 850 acres. Since the
company abandoned the attempt to
produce rubber on a paying basis,
some years ago, the lands have been
leased for ranch purposes, but have
not been returning sufficient to pay
Interest and taxes.
; There is little doubt that the lands
would produce bananas of high qual
ity, as wild bananas grow abundant
all .over that part of the island. Mr.
Anderson plans to Incorporate his
company at a capital of $500,000.
The Hawaii Bookkeepers' Associa
tion is an organization to which all
bookkeepers, or those who have been
bookkeepers and are interested in the
work, are entitled to join says the
Hilo Tribune of Oct. 26. It is not
confined solely to plantation em
ployees, although at the convention
closed yesterday all members pres
ent were attached to the various
plantations on this Island. In addi
tion, there were representatives from
Maui and Kauai, who took an active
part in the discussions, particularly
Aubrey Williams, of C. Brewer & Co.
The final committee to take up the
question of forming a Territorial
Association of Bookkeepers was ap
pointed by President James M. Mulr,
of Hakalau, just prior to the close
of yesterdays'c session. He appointed
Aubrey Williams, of Oahu, chairman;
F. M. Henderson, of Hawaii; G. N.
Weight, of Maui; H. N. Browne, of
Kauai, and It. Muller, of Oahu, as
All except, Browne, of "Makawcli,
were preuent, and had heard the dis
cussion on this topic. President Mulr
promised to get into communication
with Browne and explain to him the
aims and objects of the Association
The formation of this Territorial
Associaton is not calculated to de
stroy the Island Association, for the
local body plans to meet as usual
in Hilo in April and to have the an
nual meeting in Honolulu in conjun
tion with representatives of all the
other l3lnnds. By such an Associa
as planned it is calculated that the
interests of the bookkeepers will be
benefited, as well as the Interests of
the plantations, by tending towards

WHEN THE STRIKE IS ON
The Literary Digest Is the first mag
azine which has come to hand bearing
Berious marks of the type-setters'
strike In New York. All of the regular
reading matter, some 80 pages, is
type-written, not type-set. The orig
inal typewritten sheets are photo
graphed and reduced to the proper
size, then zinc etchings are made from
the photographic plates. It is perfect
ly legible and not unpleasant reading.
Anyhow It comes which is more than
can be said of some of the other magazines.
