Honolulu, Sept. 10. The Cham
ber of Commerce at n meeting
yesterday agreed upon n memorial

to take separate action looking to
wards having Honolulu made a
regular port of call for trasports.
The new by-laws of the Chamber
were also adopted.
V. II. Hoogs presented the me
morial of the coffee committee. It
j begun with an enumeration of the
1 principal industries of Hawaii, ns
sugar, rice, fruit and coffee grow
ing. The memorial also advanced
the proposition that Congress had
always been willing to enact legis
lation to create conditions favorable
to the settling of small tracts of
land. Sugar cane, it was set forth.
1 can only be successfully grown by
I large corporations because of the
I great outlay of money at the outset
cultivation of rice, it was stated is
entirely in the hands of Asiatics,
because only hand labor is possible.
Only the raising of coffee and of
citrus fruits, it was argued, is left
for American farmers. Land had
been divided by the government
into small tracts and given to Ha
waiiaus and Americans and put
under coffee cultivation. The de
cline in price and competition had
caused these settlers to suffer a
severe loss and as a result coffee
growing was stopped, and the plan
tations are now covered with rank
It was further set out that 400,
000 acres of land ti Hawaii are
available for co. oe growing, of
which 50,000 are under cultivation.
The annual output now is 1,000
tons, but with protection it is set
out that in ten years the produc
tion will equal 150,000 tons. An
advance of four or five cents per
pound will make the cultivation
profitable and will cause a demand
for land from citizen farmers. It
was lurther put forth, that there, is
at present necessity for creating a
better understanding of citizenship,
social and industrial conditions,
will be bettered by bringing in
more American settlers. Atten
tion is also called to the report of
the Mitchell Commission upon
coffee, and Congress is asked to
assist the industry either by an
amendment to the stafflaw, placing
a duty on coffee, as on sugar and
rice, or by giving a bounty.
Mr. Cooke called attention to the
fact that the statistics given might
alarm Congress, as 150,000 tons of
coffee at a bounty of five cents
wduld mean $15,000,000. These
figures were omitted and the me
morial then adopted.
A letter was read by Secretary
Spencer from Wm. Haywood, trans
mitting a communication from
Quartermaster General Humphreys
in regard to the transports. It wa"s
similar to the one received by the
Merchants' Association some time
ago, stating the coal must be pro
vided before Honolulu can be made
a port of call. C. M. Cooke stated
that he had taken the matter up
and thought he could get a lower
bid for coal than the one transmit
ted by the Merchants' Association,
but would first confer with the
bod). Mr. Cooke and IS. D.
Tenney were appointed on a com
mittee with full power to act.
A letter was read from Delegate
Kuhio acknowledging the receipt

Presence of .tinny (lueils.
Captain R. V. Mcl.cod and Lieu
tennnt Catherine Hutchinson of the
Salvation Army were married last
Saturday evening in the presence
of a large audience iu Seirao's hall,
the ceremony being performed by
Major Harris of the Honolulu Sal
vation Army corps. The Hilo
public had been invited to the wed
ding, an admission fee being charg
ed. The hall was well filled by
good uatured spectators who were
there not so much through curiosity
as through a desire to give testi
monial to the esteem iu which the I
bride is held among all classes.
The hall was magnificently dec-'
orated with palm branches and)
bamboo. Over the platform on '
which the ceremony wasjierformed,
hung a floral bell and here and
there were draped flags of the Army '
and of the United States. While !
the guests were assembling the time
was spent iu the singing of hymns. ;
When the house was well filled .
Major Harris took charge and turn-
ed the attention of those present to
the subject of matrimony. Hei
called for the views of single folks 1
and married folks upon the subject.
The responses were entertaining.
The ceremony was from the Sal
vation Army ritual and was very
impressive. At the close the
doughty Captain gracefully kissed
the bride and then came congratu
lations. The bridal party left the hall
and with a number of guests went
to the home of the Misses Hutchin
son on Volcano street where a
splendid wedding dinner was in
readiness. The guests here were
pleasantly entertained for an hour
Mr. and Mrs. McLeod received
many beautiful presents from far
and near, being testimonials of
friendship formed at the different
places they have been engaged in
Army work. Mr. nud Mrs. Mc
Leod will have charge of the Sal
vation Army work in Hilo.
Mike Loft Suddenly.
Two Irish soldiers stationed in
the West Indies were accustomed
to bathe in a little bay which was
generally supposed to be free from
sharks. Though on good terms
with each other, they were not what
might be called fast friends. One
day, as they were swimming about
a hundred yards from the shore,
Pat observed Mike suddenly mak
ing for the land as hard as he could,
without saying a word.
Wondering what was the matter,
Pat struck out vigorously after him
and lauded at his companions heels. !
"Is there anything wrong wid ye?"
inquired Pat feelingly. "Nothin'
nothin' at all," replied the other.
"Thin why did you make such a
suddiut rctrate for an' lave me?
continued Pat. "Bedad," answered
Mike coolly, "I spied the fin av a
big shark about twenty feet ahead,
an' I thought while he was playin'
wid you it would give me time to
reach the shore!"
