Knortfl to Induce Jnpnnpso Laborers
lo go o Snn Frnnclsco.
It is reported that efforts arc being
made by j. P. Ball, n lawyer formerly of
Honolulu, now nt Victoria, It. C, to en
tice Jnpnnesc laborers from Hawaii to
migrate to the Const, with n view of
sending litem to South America. A local
representative Is said to be now on the
ground making the arrangements. Japa
nese have been going to Sail Francisco
and the California const only to be disap
pointed in securing higher wages, and
some of them have returned to their for
mer haunts in these Islands. Ballta
plans nre surrounded with n secrecy nc-
cording to Seattle dispatches, but that he
is making nrrnngements fur n Inrge con
signment of Jnpnnesc lnbor from the is-
Innd plantations is certain.
The Weekly Hawaii Shlnpo, published,
at Honolulu, contains the following re
ference to the matter:
Honolulu and Hilo arc soon lo receive
calls from some steamers from the coast
coming after Japanese passengers to Sail
Francisco and Seattle. At least two
such steamers arc already announced
and the companies owning or chartering
them are advertising in the local Japa
The S. N. Steamship Company is ad
vertising the well known steamer Cen
tennial, to come to Honolulu and Hilo
about March 35, aud to make monthly
trips thereafter, from San Francisco to
llllo nnd Honolulu and back, with Hilo
ns the principal port nt this cud. The
steamer wants laborers as passengers,
and she will go to the island where it is
thought that the largest number can be
had. Inducements arc being offered
which the charterers hope wilt result in
the steamers being crowded with Japa
nese steerage passengers every tripr The
Oriental Trading Company of Seattle is
another concern which is about to send a
steamer here. This company's vessel is
the Olympla, and it is announced in the
advertisements that she will be here
about April iS. She is to carry Japanese
passengers and freight to Seattle, and
special inducements are being offered to
Now L'nno Loader.
W. II. Lambert, formerly of the llllo
Railroad, has perfected a cane loader,
which for simplicity of construction nnd
operation ought to appeal to every plan
ter. His principle is an endless cable
running betweeu two towers, which con
veys the caue for n distance of three hun
dred feet iu the field to the car or flume,
where bv a simple operation the bundles
arc lowered Into the vehicle or flume.
The loader is operated with a small three
horse power gasolluc engine, and can be
moved to any part of the field without
difficulty. Mr. Lambert-went to Houo
lull) Friday to present his invention to
sc vt ral-agents of island plantations. The
machines will be sold on a royalty basis.
Prospects For July Races. .
Already the members of the Hawaii
Jockey Club are making arrangements
for a splendid race meet on July 4th, (s
will appear from the advertisement ap
pearing in this issue. The horsemen are
evincing great interest in the meeting
aud since word comes from Honoluln
that the nth of June races there have
been abandoned, the management will
endeavor to attract the string of fast run
ners of the capital city. The public may
be sure that under the supervision of the
Hawaii Jockey Club they will be fur
nished with a good day's sport.
Combine- Against lluwnllnu Hnnauas.
A local banana grower has received a
letter from his agent iu San Francisco
showing the methods adopted by com
mission men on the coast which is the
cause of such small returns. An extract
from the letter is: "Its a pretty tough
proposition this banana business now.
The Eastern banana people are killing
the price on Hawaiian fruit by simply
unloading several carloads at the time
the S. ih Enterprise arrives and selling
their own fruit at very low figures. Their
bunches arc twice the size of ours and
sell at about $1.00 a bunch. This results
iu knocking the price of Hawaiian , ba
nanas dowu to nothing. The Hilo
grower should organize nnd coma into
this market solid. If they do not they
are going to be beaten right along. You
arc at the mercy of the commission men
and things arc getting worse." Some
shippers last month only realized thlrleon
cents a bunch aud one man's net pro
ceeds on a $300 shipment was $8.00.
Hi6Af,L PLANTERS' MILL.
W. It. Cnxtlo Proposes to Erect One
In Month Konn.
W. R. Cnsllc, Attorney 1). L. Wlthlng-
ton, of Honolulu, and Prof, Geo. II,
Mend, of Chicago University, accom
panied by his small sou, were Hilo visi
tors over Thursday ns the guests of Mrs.
E. G. Hitchcock on School street. The
pnrty have been on Hawnii for the past
ten days, visiting the two Konas, ascend
ing Mnunn Ken and stopping nt KUmlea
on the trip overland from Knilun. After
leaving Humimlu Sheep station, the
guide lost his way and led the party ten
tulles past the Volcano House down into
Knit. They arrived, however, at the
crater hotel on Tuesday night about dark
much fatigued by tliclr long journey, but
descended into the crater to witness the
lnva flow, which wns quite active. All
were much pleased with the grandeur of
the scenery, both of Kilatten and the
higher elevations. They took the Kiuau
Friday morning for Honolulu.
Mr. Castle has formulated a scheme of
building a cooperative mill near Nn poo
poo, to grind the cane of small Individual
planters iu that vicinity. Mr. Castle has
sought lo encourage cane growing in the
two Kona's, believing it means the up
building of that side of the island. Hence
his purpose to erect a central mill where
the output of small planters for miles
around could be ground. .'
Some years ago, cane was grown be
tween Napoopoo and Hookcna at Mr.
Castle's solicitation, and while it was
never harvested, Mr. Castle reimbursed
nil of the owners of this cane, as he had
asked them to grow it, thinking that by
the time it would be ready to be harvested
that there would be a mill ready. Mr.
Castle has not given the Idea up and
there are men like former Manager
Hewitt of Naalehu, who think the plan a
good one. He only wants to hear from
his brother J. B. Castle, who is in the
East negotiating for funds, machinery,
W. R. Castle's scheme is to build a
sugar mill at Kealakekua bay, near Na
poopoo, which would be able to grind all
the caue that could be grown upon the
land of the old Kona Sugar Co. and cer
tain lands called Keel, Honnunau, Kco
kea and Kalae, which lie between Napoo
poo and Hookena, in South Kona. One
of the chief causes of the failure of the
.Kona Sugar Co. was the inability to get
the cane to the mill at a reasonable cost,
owing to the long distance that some of
the caue had to be transported. Were a
mill erected at Napoopoo the cane could
be dry flumed at a low cost, because of
the steep incline of the surrounding hills.
Should this proposition go through the
new plantation would be a large one, as
there would be much new land planted
to caue In South Kona, which was not
available to the old Kona Sugar Co.
Citizens of North and South Kona are
taking keen ititerest in the project.
To tho LuiIIor.
Mrs. J. H. Lane will leave for the East
within a few weeks.

Elaborate preparations arc In progress
for the Emerald Dance to be given by
the Hilo Cotillion Club next Friday
night at Spreckcls Hall. The Decora
tion Committee under 'the supervision of
Miss Ivy Richardson, chairman, have
under way n decoration scheme that will
be both unique and original. The pre
vailing colors of course will be green,
commemorative of the laud of the Sham
rock aud it has been suggested that the
management erect a spacious "Blarney
stone" where the loquacious lovers can
renew their inspiration in the search for
new worlds to conquer. The liquid re
freshments will be entirely temperance
drinks, so that the dance is not expected
to end in a wake as somebody has prophesied.

Many sufferers from this painful disease
