Committee Report to the
At the meeting of the Hilo Agri
cultural Society last Saturday, the
committee appointed to report on a
pine apple cannery tor Hilo sub
mitted the following:
Your committee appointed for the
purpose, prepared and to a certain
extent circulated the following
paper, to wit:
"We the undersigned, pineapple
planters and others, desiring to
make the pineapple industry a suc
cess in Hilo, and feeling that united
action is necessary to accomplish
it, do hereby signify our willingness
to unite, and form a company to
establish and operate a pineapple
cannery at Hilo, Hawaii."
Though uot many signatures
were obtained it was clearly demon
strated that capital far the purpose
is ready when a sufficient supply of
pities is at hand. But we found
it to be the opinion of wise business
men that establishing a plant to can
the few pines now grown, would be
The only Hawaiian cannery that
has paid a profit, has 8 .0,000 plants,
and no profit has been realized un
til this year. The Tropic Fruit
Co. has 440 acres available for pines,
and 37 acres planted, but they have
not yet erected a cannery We
do uot know the area of the Ha
waiian Pineapple Co., whose can
nery was erected ths past season,
but it is probably larger than that
of the Tropic Fruit Co. Their lease
hold is 580 acres.
It is estimated by a man of ex
perience now in the business on
Oahu, that a cannery can be run on
the product of 100 to 200 acres. We
doubt if the product of 25 acres
would be available in Hilo this sea
son. We therefore recommend de
lay iu the establishment of a cannery
until at least 100 acres in pines
shall be available. We have abund
aut evidence that pineapple raising
and canning will both be very profit
able as soon as enough are raised
to supply a cannery of reasonably
large size. The advantages possessed
by these islands for the raising of
this fruit are superlative. No sheds
are required, whereas in Florida,
where over 7,500,000 pines are
raised annually, (sec report of Com.
of Agriculture for 1901-2) hundreds
of acres have been covered with pro
tecting sheds at an expense of from
$325.00 to $600.00 per acTe. From
$20.00 to $150.00 per acre is le
quired for fertilizer, (see Farmers'
Bulletin No. 140). Cultivation is
expensive on account of the price
of labor, ($200 to $250 per day of 6
hours) and the myriads of mos
quitoes that infest that pineapple
region. And yet, Jared Smith re
marked to this society, "these pines
which are canned extensively iu the
vicinity of Baltimore, have a greatly
inferior flavor as compared with
ours." The flavor of our pines is
unexcelkd in the world. The
canned pines from Oahu are ad
mitted to be the finest in flavor of
any on the market. Mr. Bentley,
representing the largest canning
combine iu the world, admitted this
fact in the presence of this society.
What then is there to prevent Ha
waii from becoming paramount iu
this industry? It tin promised that
the Tropical Fruit Packing Com
pany at Waiakea, which already
has a building erected adjoining
the railroad shops, will use lor jam,
etc., the surplus pines of this year
and next, therefore not even pres
ent loss will be occasioned growers
while prepariug support for a cau
nery. As this industry is destined to
become great at Hilo growers should
be awake to the danger of placing
themselves at the mercy of an out
side corporation. They should con
trol the cannery when established
and should now make every effort
to extend the pineapple area near

Honolulu, Feb. 23. Sheriff An
drews of Hawaii has notified High
Sheriff Brown of his desire to resign
his office and accept a private posi
tion. The Sheriff is reported to
have tired of the constant complaints
and bickerings of the people of Hilo
and to have made up his mind some
time ago to retire. When the
count government change was
made on the first of the year An
drews was offered a very good pri
vate position and only took over
the Sheriff's office a second time at
the earnest desire of the High
Sheriff. As soon as the people of
Hilo arrange for some way of tak
ing over the garbage service An
drews will retire, and it is said that
the board of Health is now arrang
ing to take over the bureau.
"Andrews has been desirous of
resigning for some time," said High
Sheriff Brown yesterday. "When
Kcolanui was elected county Sheriff,
Andrews was offered a very good
private position which he had de
cided to accept, when he was com
pelled to, take over his old office
again. He is anxious to retire now
and will do so as soon as he can
find some means of disposing of the
garbage service in Hilo. Mr. An
drews invested a considerable a
mount of money iu the enterprise
and does not want to lose it. The
prisoners are being used iu taking
care of the garbage and Andrews
when he went out of office on the
first of the year arranged for the
Supervisors to take it over. I un
derstand now that the Board of
Health is trying to make arrange
ments to take over the department
and in that case Mr Andrews will
probably insist on having his re
"Paul Jarret has been offered the
position of sheriff but has declined.
He has already arranged to go to
Maui to take charge of the Raymond
ranch and does not want to give it
up. Nothing has been done about
the appointment of a deputy Sheriff
for Hilo. Andrews was an honest,
conscientious officer and it will be
a great loss to the department when
he leaves. He has been doing good
work on Hawaii, which is a difficult
island to handle, and whatevci the
people of Hilo may say he is a good
officer It will be difficult to find a
man to replace him."
