Nothing but the very best
of wheat is bought by the
millers wlio put up ....
Every bushel used must be sweet and sound, and
kept so. Every grain of wheat is run through
four cleaning and four scouring machines, and is
thoroughly washed before grinding.
It is not enough that the dust is removed from the
wheat, but each grain must be cleaned, and the
r crevices and irregularities of each grain secured,
thus securing u CLEAN, PURE FLOUR.
Von caii always depend upon the HOLLY FLOUR
being all right. For sale by

The prospects ol n Hawaiian
I'ruit Gtowets Association are
coming 11 long apace. .Mr. A. U.
McKenny, who has been looking
into the subject to some extent on
the coast reports that an organiza
tion is absolutely essential at San
Francisco to properly look after
Hawaii's interests in the sale and
marketing of b:tnanas and other
fruits, from the islands. Hereto
fore, aside from perhaps a half
dozen or more growers, who have
joined in the shipment of bananas
in one consignment, there has been
no sort of organization or unified
effort, with a view of securing, the
best prices obtainable and of seem
ing protection from inroads of coiu
pititors front South America, and
uthsr tropical countries. At present
the banana market is almost entire
ly controlled by a trust or com
bination of fruit companies under
the name of the United Ifruit
Company, who luvo at their com
mand large resources in the way of
unlimited capital, large plantations
owned or leased, with an enormous
output of fruit and transportation
facilities unequalled for handling
Mieir own products, thereby getting
their fruit to market quickly and
Mr. McKenney states that as
against such opposition, nothing
can be done effectively unless the
planters in Hawaii unite in an as
sociation or organization which
will in time become a factor in the
San Francisco and other Pacific
To a representative of the Tribune,
Mr. McKenney said: "In unity
there is strength, and unless
bananas growers here get together,
they will never be able to get satis
factory returns from their consign
ments of fruit. The fruit growers
of southern California found that
they were at the mercy cf the com
mission agents, who refused or ac
cepted the growers' fruit as they
liked, fixing the price and the
planter either had to take what
was offered or have his fruit spoil
on his hands. Under the present
system of fruit growers' associations
which have sprung up all over the
fruit growing belt, every farmer or
member consign? his product to
theheadquartersof the organization,
either at can rraucisco or some
central shipping point, where the
individual shipments lose their
identity and become part and
parcel of the co-operative product.
Somereliable agent or representative
then takes charge of the fruit and
markets it at the best prices obtain
able. In this way, there is no
cutting of prices by individual
shippers since all are treated alike.
The fruit of the association is
known by a special label or trade
mark, and the fruit raised in this
locality is only obtainable from the
"I have seen a number of the
banana growers in Hilo and vicinity,
and have recommended that they
organize themselves into a Hawaii

With a duly accredited agent on
the coast, the planters will then be
in a position to demand a uniform
Matson of the Matson Navigation
Company has assured me that e cry
care would be taken by their agents
in handling fruit on the dock and
aboard the Hntcrprise. Already
he has fitted up the after deck of
this vessel with racks and put
ventilators in the forward hatch,
which will also now be used for
storing bananas. All deck sp.ic.
available will be utilized for stow
ing the fruit in such a manner as
not overheat or crush the bunches.
So far as the freight rate is con
cerned, we hava now a cheaper '
rate thin is obtained by shippers '
who have id bring their fruit into
San Francisco by rail from New
Orleans' or Mobile. The coit of
transportation by both rail and
water from South or Central Ameri
ca is So or1 9) cents, which as
against the rate of 50 cents from
Hilo latuhd at San Francisco, is a
pretty high figure All that is
needed to make the Hilo fruit a
factor in the coast markets is uni
formity of action as to shipment,
price and supply. This can be ac
complished only by organization
among the growers which I am en
couraged to believe will shortly ba
Mr. McKenny left on the F.uter
prise for Sail Francisco, where he
will look in the subject further and
make arragements for placing a
large consignment of bananas which
will be in readiness by the return
of the steamer. In the meantime,
arrangements are on foot to organ
ize the growers into a Fruit
Growers Association, as outlined
by Mr. McKenny.

Honolulu, May 28. The Amer

having the lightest cargo and
smallest passenger list ever carried
on any Oriental liner passinu
throtigh this port. She carries but
two cabin passengers besides a com

tons of freight, all for Japan. The
treight consists practically entirely
of caps, ammunition and other war
munitions. It is consigned to a
private firm in Japan as has been
all the other stuff which has been
shipped through here for the use of
the Japanese Government. The
steamship further carries $150,000
