HILO NAN ANA TRADE.
I'rospectB for Capturing the Western
Peter Lee, who has put his
shoulder to the task of developing
the banana industry in the Hilo
district, feels that excellent pro
gress has been made during the
past few months. He estimates
that over 500 acres within the dis
trict are now being cleared for
bananas, and that within a year or
eighteen months 3,000 to 5,000
bunches per month will be furnish
ed for shipment to the San Fran
He also believes it will be an
easy job to capture tne western
market from Central America
which now dominates the trade.
He says that bananas from Hilo
laid down in Frisco at $1 per
bunch will do the work, and estab
lish the industry upon a permanent
paying basts to all who arc engaged
in it. Mr. Lee agrees with-Mr. D.
G. Camariuos, the Honolulu fruit
man, that we should grow the
Southern bar.ana here. It ships
without packing; has a tough, skin
that prevents bruising and blacken
ing. These arc qualities not pos
sessed by our more delicate Chinese
In his plans vAiich he believes
will ultimately capture the banana
trade of the Rocky Mountain
States. Mr. Lee insists that the
Hawaiian grower be paid living
profitable price for his fruit. He
believes that with bananas at a $1
a bunch in Frisco the grower here
should have 50 cents per bunch,
the transportation companies 35
cents per bunch and the commis
sion agents and other charges 15
cents per bunch. He claims these
figures will pay all the parties
reasonably and foster the expansion
of the business.
Mr. Lee figures that the planter
is entitled to not less than 50 cents
a bunch because ot the following
expenses and conditions connected
with the growing of the fruit. Land
suitable for growing bananas can
not be leased for less than $ioto
$20 per acre. Some Japanese
growers are paying as much as $25
per" acre for tracts of from three to
five acres. He figures that planting
and cultivation will cost 5 cents a
bunch. Then the fertilizer must
be used if the choicest bananas are
to be raised. The leaves and grass
for packing purposes must be cut
and stored in sheds to be kept dry.
Cutting and packing the bananas
figures another 5 or 10 cents, and
it will cost 10 cents a bunch to
transport them to the wharf. The
grower must receive 50 cents a
bunch to offset these charges if he
is to have any profit left.
Mr. Lee himself will import some
plants of the Southern banana and
advises others to do the same.

With this message in his hand,
Manager Dickenson stepped out
into the rotunda of the offices of
the cable company at 8:41 o'clock
last evening and announced that
the cable between Honolulu and
the Pacific Coast of the continent
was open and working successfully.
In the office were gathered a num
ber of the representative citizens of
the city, and with him was Secre
tary Cooper, and the announce
ment was greeted with cheers.
To be exact, this was eight min
utes after the recorder had shown
that the great task of bringing Ha
waii within a second of San Fran
cisco had been finished, as the
sensitive instrument which indicates
the passage of the electric impulse
began to vibrate about 8:30, and
the preliminary service calls occu
pied the first few minutes of the
action of the wire, and engrossed
the attention of the busy officials
who gathered about its end. It was
the culmination of a generation's
hopes and aspirations, and the peo
ple who saw the working of the
instrument could not restrain a
cheer. Advertiser, Jan. 2, 1903.

History of Co-operatlre itnnklng In

The first inception of the Build
ing and Loan system (as it is
popularly called) was in Germany
125 years ago; almost simultane
ously something of the same kind
started in England. Out of this
movement came the Birbeck of
London, 51 years ago, which is
today the seventh strongest financial
institution in the world. It has
handled over $1,259,000,000 in 51
Over two thousand years ago the
Chinese formed societies and each
paid monthly, and the money thus
collected was loaned to one of their
members who repaid it. in install
ments. The system of installment bank
ing, popularly called Building and
Loan associations, have increased
from one in 1837 in Frankfort, a
suburb of Philadelphia, to over'
10,000 in 1900, and stilt increasing.
Their assets increased from nothing
to over $950,000,000, considerably
more than the entire assets of the
National Banks .of the United
States. Their field of operation
extends from Portland, Maine, to
the Hawaiian Islands, and from St.
Paul to El Paso, Texas. Besides
this the investments in these com
panies are sought and held by
European capitalists. There must
be something good in this system
or they would not have gained
This system has been improved

and are proving it, that the

popular banking institution, giving
its stockholders an equitable divi

guaranteeing them absolutely
against loss by the permanent cash
capital (called Reserve Fund) paid
in by its management and other
prominent financiers on the Pacific
Coast, we will fitly describe this
Reserve Fund in one of our arti
cles. Watch out for it.
