A PROMISING BUSINESS.
The arrangeinent made by Peter
Lee to pay cash nt the wharf for
bananas is an important .step for the
people of the Hilo district. For
merly there was no transportation
facilities and banana growing was a
neglected industry. With the
coming of the Knterprise it was
discovered that means of transpor
tation alone would' not awaken a
sleeping business. There was
trouble nt the market. The com
mission men could not be depended
on to give the attention to their
small consignments necessary to se
cure satisfactory results to the ship
per. Untrained in the science of
packing bananas for long voyages,
the growers sent their fruit over
ripe and improperly packed. As a
result they received disappointing
returns. Rotten Hilo fruit is no
better than any other rotten fruit.
But Mr. Lee has effected an ar
rangement with Porter Bros., one
of the strongest firms in San Fran
cisco whereby the fruit of the Ha
waiian grower is accepted on his
own premises and cash paid for it
on the spot. Mr. L,ce will see to it
that every proper precaution is
taken in the selection and packing
of the fruit. Captain Matson will
further equip the Knterprise as a
banana carrier and Hilo's choicest
fruit will arrive in San Francisco,
the property of Porter Bros. Their
own interests will demand that they
bestow all diligence in distributing
these shipments promptly.
The scheme gives every promise
that the "Hilo banana" will be
come as famous as "Yakima spuds"
or "Missouri pippins."
There is reason to believe that
banana growing will extensively
increase under this stimulus. Mr.
Lee says the market cannot be
overstocked, because inferior fruit
will be displaced by our superior
shipments. Captain Matson says
he will provide the carrying capa
city for all that can be grown.
Last Friday night the lava lake
jn the bottom of Kilauea crater dis
appeared and the big cavern was in
darkness. Visitors Wednesday
this week say the bottom of Kilauea
looks as dry as an extinct crater.
At night there are seen feeble
glimpses of light along cracks and
jets of steam and smoke emerge
from fissures in the black crust of
the recent lake of fire. The sudden
termination of the brilliant show
disappointed many people. But
old timers say that this is one of
Madam Pele's tricks and that the
activity may be renewed at any
time witli increased power.

Land Commissioner K. S. Boyd
has reserved land for the delegation
of Dakota farmers which is coming
to Hawaii to settle. Mr. Boyd has
received letters to the effect that
the farmers will be here within less
than a mouth. All arrangements
arc being made through Franz
.Hucholtz of Konn, Hawaii, whose
own splendid" farm on Hawaii was
the means of inducing the Dakota
men to settle in the Islands.
Commissioner Boyd has set apart
a tract of land in the South Kona
district, Hawaii, and each of the
new settlers will be allowed to take
up from five hundred to a thousand
acres as range land. Later, if they
demonstrate that the soil in that
district is of a quality suited for
small farms, adjoining land will be
classified for homesteads. Alto
gether, only six or seven farmers
with their families will come in the
first delegation, but if they prove
successful in their undertaking
others will speedily follow. The
new settlers have about $150,00010
invest in their farms, .which should
be amply sufficient to provide for
their necessities until such time as
the land begins to produce an in

The Chinese of this city will publish a weekly paper
called the WORLD NEWS. The object of the journal is
to spread wisdom, practical knowledge and the news of the
day among the Chinese people. In China there are few
newspapers, which is largely the reason why the Chinese
people are so far behind the times compared with Eu
ropeans and Americans.
For this reason the leading Chinese merchants of the
Hawaiian Islands have formed a company for the publi
cation of a Chinese paper at Hilo.
Mr. H.Jackson, a gentleman of superior talents and
education has beeen employed as editor. He has had seven
year's editorial experience at Honolulu.
The offices of the newspaper are on Front Street, I3ow
Wong hall. Advertisers will communicate with either W.
K. Akana or Hop Warn Co.
