Camp Perry, Aug. 21, 1920.
This will be the last regular letter
that I will write, for I will be on my
way home In a few duys, and I won't
have time to do much more writing
I got a telegram from the Palmers,
who use to live at LIhue, on Thurs
day saying that they were Coming to
Port Clinton, a little town a few miles
from here, on Saturday afternoon. 1
thought that inasmuch as they had
come so far I had better go over and
meet the train. So I got excused
from the afternoon drill and went.
And I waited there at the station from
3 o'clock to 9, but no Palmers. I be
gan to get disgusted, for here I had
reserved a tent at the clubhouse for
them, and gone into town to meet
them, and spent in all nearly ten dol
lars all for nothing.
I came home in a blue funk, and
marched into the tent ready to swear,
and to my surprise there the Palmers
were. They had missed the train and
had taken the inter-urban, and had
forgotten that I would be at the rail
They took me into town, and wo
had a dandy supper, the Unit real
honest-to-goodness meal since we left
home. We started off with tomato
soup and crackers, then had salad and
fish, which was followed by porter
house steak and French fried potatoes,
and we ended up with cake and coffee.
It makes my mouth water yet just to
thinlc of it. After that we went to a
first class hotel and I had my first
sleep between sheets for two months.
The Palmers were certainly wonder
fully good to me; they bought me
candy and cookies, while Mrs. Palmer
brought with her a big box of cookies
of her own make, and you know how
unequalled they are! 1 remembered
them of old and am enjoying them
When they left Mr. Palmer wanted
to give me $25.00, when I wouldn't take
it, I found a $10 bill in my pocket when
I woke up the next morning. They
wanted me to visit them, and say that
when I come to college I must come
and spend the Christmas vacation with
them. They are quite well-to-do now,
and own a car. Mr. Palmer owns a
big wax paper industry in Columbus,
which is doing very well. They want
you to remember them to all of their
friends, and they hope to visit the Is
lands in the course of a few years.
Latest crop estimates for the cur
rent year indicate the total output for
the Islands will be 566.233 tons, which
is a falling off of about 1300 tons
from original estimates.
The output according to Islands will
be as follows: 130,594 tons, Maui
128,283, Oahu 117,905, Kauai 92,648.
There is an exodus of Japanese
cane growers from Hawaii to Japan.
Many of them are leaving with for
tunes sufficient to keep them in easy
circumstances in their native country.
Many of them take from $10,000 to
All the sugar mills on Oahu are now
running 24 hours a day. They are
late with their crops, and are now
making up lost time due to the strike.
Recently Maui Agricultural dis
charged 18 agitators. They were try
ing to stir up trouble between the men
and the plantation.
Action is to be taken on behalf of
the Waiakea Homesteaders against
the Waiakea Mill Co. for alleged
damages sustained by them because
of neglect of their cane. The amount
may run to four million dollars.
Catton Neill & Co. have secured an
advantagious site and are erecting
Bhops and warehouses at Iloilo, in the
Philippines, for the construction and
repair of sugar mill machinery.
Peru has ueeu a sugar growing
country from time immemorial, but
hasn't cut much figure, at least to the
Now however it is beginning to loom
up larger on the sugar horizon. The
estimate for this crop is 325,000 tons
which is more that half the output of
Land is cheap there, $5 to $25, an
cre, not rent but purchase price.
The cane is all irrigation grown.
Labor is cheap, 70 cts a day and no
bonus. The cane appears to be of
good quality as it (akes only six to
eight tons of cane to a ton of sugar.
Most of the mills are old fashioned
