PAPER MILL IN SIGHT.
OxcK let it be demonstrated that
enough bagasse is available to jus
tify the erection of a mill for the
manufacture of paper at Hilo, then
all interests should pull 'together
and aid in the establishment of the
enterprise. The promoters of the
paper mill must first show that
tliey can pay enough for bagasse to
warrant stitrar mills now using it
for fuel, to substitute coal or oil in
stead. If this can be done they can
no doubt find all the bagasse they
When this question is settled,
the American Talc-Asbestos Com
pany should find it easy sailing in
Hilo. There is not a western or
eastern city in America that would
not jump at the chance ot securing
an industry of the magnitude of the
one proposed for Hilo. A committee
of citizens would be appointed at a
town meeting to confer with the
promoters and render what assis
tance might be necessary to carry
the project to fruition. Usually
in such cases some owner of real
estate comes foward with a site
which he either donates to the en
terprise or with the co-operation of
his fellow townsmen offers at a
It is.not known that the projec
tors of this paper mill in Hawaii
ask or expect any favors. They
are figuring on paying the planta
tions goodjmoney for their bagasse
or on not getting it. That there
are other .points where the mill
could be located should not
forgotten by Hilo
If the proposed
enterprise proves as substantial as
it does at first appearance the inter
ests of Hilo should not be neglect
ed. Merchants in this city, who
have done business in towns where
extensive payrolls were distributed
each week, knowwhat that means.
WHAT THE COMMISSION FOUND.
ThejMembcrs of the Senatorial
Commission, while in Hilo awak
ened to several important facts.
Shown the need of a break
water for the Hilo harbor they ad
mitted that it should be built. It
was demonstrated that a bounty on
Hawaiian coffee would result in the
building up of a new industry giv
ing employment to many and open
ing up to cultivation on this Island
large tracts of virgin land.
They had exposed to their view an
antiouated svstem of
government and saw for themselves I The Philippines will make an enor

up Mr. Richley's lead and gave the
gentlemen a rousing reception iu
her own bay.
The Chamber of Commerce at
Stockton, Cal., recently gave a cele
bration over the fact that it had
secured for the city a ladder factory.
If Hilo works in the same spirit, a
paper mill may be located here.
It is not unreasonable to expect,
ns the result of the showing of the
coffee men before the Senatorial
Commission, that something will
be done by Congress to put this
important Hawaiian industry upon
it feet. As suggested by both Mr.
Louisson and Mr. Horner, a bounty
of 4 or 5 cents a pound for a term
of years would give the coffee men
a chance for their lives. It will
give them an opportunity to culti
vate the best market as well as the
best coffee. Once introduced to the
right class of buyers in America,
the demand for Hawaiian coffee
will be perpetual. A bounty will
enable its superior qualities to be
come known. And a coffee drinker
once wedded to the aroma of the
Hawaiian cup will never permit
himself to be divorced.
NOT TO IMPEACH.
It must be remembered that
Secretary Cooper as an official of
the Territory, is on trial and the
Senators are his judges. Hawaii
This is the first inkling the pub
lic has had intimating that the Sen
atorial inquiry is an impeachment
proceedings against Governor Dole
and his cabinet. As a matter of
fact the Herald is wrong. The in
quiry is for the purpose of ascer
taining the truth about general
conditions in Hawaii. It is in no
sense a proceeding against the Ter
A RAY OF LIGHT.
Tin fact that a profitable trade
in bananas has been established be
tween Hilo and San Francisco is
one ray of light from the early
dawn of the new era in Island ex
ports. It is perfectly true that the
Islands will produce many things
which cannot be crown in the
United States, but which are in
great demand there and it is but a
question of time until the export
trade from the Islands to the States
will amount to millions annually.
Tiik members of the Commission
appointed by chairman Holstein to
draw up a Republican charter for
county and municipal government
are named in a notice published in
this issue. The Commission should
I have included at least two gentle-
! "e" "'bo had spent their lives in
actual contact with county and mu
nicipal problems. As it is consti
tuted there is no question that the
commission will not produce a
charter, theoretically perfect.
Does the fact that S. B. Dole
was subpoenaed to appear before
the . Senatorial Commission last
Monday, indicate that he was not
in sympathy with their labors?
Should the first officer of the Terri
tory not have been the first to offer
himself for examination?
Secretary II. E. Cooper is au
thority for the statement that the
Senatorial Commission fixed up a
set of stereotyped questions and
answers with Judge Little. This,
itself, is an eye-opener on Hawaiian
conditions deserving a place in the
record of the Inquiry.

of laws, bills, newspaper clippings,
! letters, opinions, etc. During the
Senator Burton asked if this bill
met the approval of the Land Com
missioner. Mr. Ryan said it had not met
with such approval. This disap
proval was based on the charge
that it was not Hawaiian and did
not "fit peculiar conditions existing
in this country," a phrase which
Territorial officials have learned by
0. T. Sliipman was called. He
I risented a memorial giving his ac
tual experience in cane raising.

While Senator Russel was on tl.e
stand, Mr. De Knight, counsel f r
the Queen, asked him some ques
tions. The Senator said the de
thronement of the Queen would not
have been possible without the
lauding of the U. S. troops from
the Boston. He believed an in

When asked whether white labor
could endure the Hawaiian climate,
Senator Russel said that all the
men who testified before the Com
mission at Mountain View worked
in the fields from ten to thirteen
hours a day and none were sick.
After the session the Commission
took luncheon at Senator Russcl's
home. Mrs. Russel was assisted
in the serving by Miss Whitney
and Miss Sarah Robertson of Hono
lulu. The train with the Senatorial
party arrived in Hilo at 2:30 p. in.,
Saturday. The Senators at once
took carriages and drove out the
Hamakua road to the residence of
J. T. Moir at Ouomca, where they
absorbed more information. In the
evening at 7 o'clock they embarked
on the Heleue for Honolulu.
