Honolulu, July 15. W. H. Pain
and II. W. S. Edmunds have issued
a prospectus of the Hawaiian Sisal
Co., Ltd., to be organized for the
development of n sisal plantation
on the lands of the Heeia Agricul
tural Company nt Heeia on this is
land. The company has over 12,
000 acres at its disposal under
favorable lease and in fee simple.
Conditions of the location are highly
advantageous for producing first
class fibre. Under the lenses all the
houses at Heeia nnd Kaueohc pass
to the control of the new company
and a good portion of the laud is
very well fenced, thus obviating
large initial expense 011 this score.
Arrangements have been made
for the importation of young plants
I required for seed nnd by buying in
large quantities very favorable
I terms can be made. There is al
ready growing 011 the laud a good
number of thrifty sisal plants, the
leaves from which have been tested
with the best results. The castor
oil bean is also being produced on
the land at a profitable figure.
During the first year it is proposed
to plant 3,120 acres in sisal and be
sides this the cultivation of hemp,
ramie, jute and abutilon fibre will
be undertaken. The water supply
from rainfall nnd water courses is
conservatively estimated at eight
million gallons a day, which is quite
sufficient for all purposes.
The management is to be in the
hands of II. V. S. Edmunds, who
undertakes to produce fibre at a
cost that will give a good profit
should the selling price fall as low
as three cents a pound. The pre
sent selling price in San Francisco
is 9 cents a pound. Kdmuuds has
had extensive experience in tropical
and semi-tropic.fl countries especial
ly in Mexico.
It is estimated that a profit of at
least 50 to 100 per cent on the capi
tal expended during the first four
years can be safely reckoned upon
in the case of the first crop, which
is obtained, as we have above stated
at end of three years or three and a
half years after planting, according
as "bulbils" (pole plants), or plants
of older growth, are planted, and
that a profit of at least 70 to 200
per cent on the annual capital ex
penditure can be reckoned upon
each year afterwards, during the
life of the plantation.
And it is confidently expected
that the income in the meantime
before the first crop of sisal is ob
tained, from the cultivation of jute
and hemp and ramie and abutilon
fiber and other fibers, and from the
cultivation of manioca, tobacco,
pineapples, castor oil beans, and
other quick-gro.ving crops, will
amount to at least $60 to $100 per
acre per crop, giving a net profit of
at least $40 to $50 per acre per crop.
Extensive tables are given in the
prospectus which deal with the
items of expense in most minute
detail, estimating the selling price
at the lowest figures and expenses
at the highest. This shows a cer
tain and well sustained profit on
Referring to the small farming
features the prospectus says:
"It is a mistake to imagine that
sisal is a small farmer's crop, at
least in the ordinary, proper Am
erican acceptation of the term, as the
length of time which must elapse
between planting and gathering
necessarily precludes its being so,
especially when, in addition to this,
the cost of necessary mill and bal
ing press, and the labor of gather
ing and milling and expense of car
tage to mill are taken into considera
tion. As only some 4 to 5 per cent
of the weight of leaves is returned
in fiber, the expense for cartage of
the leaves to the mill or factory is
a heavy item even with the portnble
mills we intend using, and neces
sarily involves considerable expen
diture in carts and stock or in es
tate tramways. Only under the
metayer ' system of cultivation,
under which the cultivator would
have a half-interest in the proceeds
of the crop, the overlord providing
laud aiul house nnd implimeuts,
and fertilizer it any De necessary,

ndvnnces would be repaid outofth
share of the crop accruing to them

tivators and milled at the joint cost
of the over-lord nnd the cultivators,

sidered in nny wny n cultivation
for small proprietors. Such nn ar
rangement as this, with proper pre
cautions, should, however, be found
both safe and practicable, and ad
vantageous to both cultivators and
"The advances. which should be
made the cultivators under this sys
tem should be something like as
1. On planting so many plants
to the acre supplied by the over
lord or patron company (1000 or
2000 as may as nt first planting,
$7.50 per ncrc.
"2. On completion of each clear
ing and weeding of the land, (there
should be one every four months),
say, $1.25 per acre.
"3. On delivery of crop at mill
in bundles of 50 properly sorted ac
cording to length, say, $16 per acre.
"4. On planting the young
plants at side of the old ones, pro
viding for continuance of the plan
tation: the same as at first planting,
$7.50 per acre.
"The milling and baling nnd sub
sequent hnudling, including ship
ping, would be at joint account of
both parties, nt actual cost, n fnir
percentnge only being chnrged ns
interest (or rent) for use of the mil
ling nnd baling machines, or, per
haps better still, the over-lord or
patron company might provide the
mill and the facilities for baling,
and the cultivators do the actual
work. The gross returns obtained
for the fiber, less freight nnd all
oilier expenses in disposing of the
crop, would be divided equally be
tween the over-lord or patron Com
pany, and the cultivator, there be
ing first deducted for the share ac
cruing to the latter nil advances
that have been made him on ac
count of his share, with say inter
est at bank rate added.
"Or, if this is considered too lib
eral, though' here it is well to point
out that, a policy of "live and let
live" will pay all parties best in the
end, the over-lord or patron com
pany might take delivery of the
leaves at the cultivator's land, the
milling and baling and other dis
position of the crop afterwards be
ing entirely his, or its, own busi
ness." Dealing with other fiber products
than sisal the prospectus says we
can grow jute here to a certainty
in any quantity and there will be a
ready market here for all that can
be raised for the manufacture of
gunny sacks for the export of sugar.
Hemp is a product which it is be
lieved will do exceedingly well in
the islands and be found extremely
profitable. Abutilion fiber, mainoca
tobacco and pineapples are also pro
ducts that can be grown with profit.

a company capitalized at $250,000,
divided into 25,000 of $10 each.
