Rough Went her Causes Laborers to
do Out in Covered Itusses.
Last Tuesday the Kaiulani brought
eighty-five Korean laborers for Kukaiau
and "Latipahoehoc plantations. The
weather was too rough to laud up the
coast, so they came on to Hilo. Here, at
the request of the Koreans, they were al
lowed to go ashore to sleep 011 the dock.
They then refused to go back on the
boat, saying they would die before they
would tackle another voyage.
The difficulty was settled by an appeal
to Mr. Wright "of the Volcano Stables.
He undertook to transport the outfit over
land. Wednesday morning the start was
made. The Laupahoehoe contingent
was lauded Wednesday night without
mishap, and the remainder started on
their way to Kukaiau next morning.
Seven wagons and twenty-eight head of
horses was the outfit required for the
work and tltese were thrown into com
mission nt a moments notice without in
terfering with the regular rouine orkintl,ieMpitll, ,,, lT
of the Stables in connec Ion with the dis- nmile 'd t, , escape. O

acres either planted or in course of plant
ing. The total number of plants in this
vicinity is estimated to be 223.734.
Mr. Higgins of the Hawaiian Kxperi.
mcut Stntiou was introduced to the. meet
ing, He tnlked on the blueficlds banana.
He stated that the blueficlds is n better
shipping variety than the Chinese be-'
cause ot the toughness ol the skin, en
abling it to withstand the bruises incident
to handling. The blucfields bunch is
larger than the Chinese and presents n
more attractive appearance to the buyer.
Mr. Higgius said that lime is a very good
fertilizer for soils that nre in usourcondi
tioti. The soils of the Islands arc high
in nitrogen but in such chemical com
pound that it is not available to the plant.
Cultivation liberates it for the use of the
plant. He said that ligumiuous plants
are very good agents in liberating nitro
gen. He' recommended cow peas and
Dr. Holland exhibited some specimens
of commercial ginger, and R. I. Llllie
