of Eccentric Character of
At the advanced age of seventy.two,
Peter Lewis, the Charon of Cocoanut Isl
and died of old age and physical exhaus
tion nt his cabin last Wednesday morning.
Lewis was a Russian Fin, who came to
the islands in 1880 iu n codfish schooner.
He followed the sea from early boyhood
along the California coast, but has made
a living of late years with a small batteau
in which he ferried pleasure seekers
across the channel to and from Cocoauut
Island. At one time he was in the U. S.
Navy, and served as quartermaster of the
Revenue Cutter Lincoln, exploring Alas
kan wnters iu 1867-8, when that Territory
was purchased from Russia. Lewis was
unmarried and left no trace of any rela
tives, although he had a ucat little bank
account when he died, the result of his
hard earned savings.
Our new line for the spring of 1905 has

A MATTER OF HEALTH
HAS HO SUBSTITUTE
Hlto, Hawaii, aoth April, 1905.
Editor Tkiuunk I rend with much
interest, the article iu your issue of the
4th. inst. exposing some of the methods
of High Finance iu connection with the
Olaa Sugar Co., and have been waiting
to see some public refutation of the char
ges made therein, or nt least some ex
planation of the transactions, but so far
have seen nothing, so I suppose, as silence
is said to give consent, we may conider
the charges made to be true, and since
there are no explanations from the Dil
lingham Co. I would like to ask your
correspondent if he knows how this in
debtedness of the Dillinchnm Co. to till-
Olaa Sugar Co. was incurred, he mentions
several ways iu which it could have been
lucurrcd, but I with other stockholders
of the Olaa Sugar Co. would like to know
just how it was done.
In the animal report of the Olaa Sugar
Co. of the 31st of December 190a, the
Treasurer of the Co. says "the Assessable
Stock is now nil paid up, with the excep
tion of a 1, 676.00, so this debt could not
have been incurred through non-payment
of assessments on stock, held by Dilling
In this same report the Treasurer tells
us that "the Company starts the second
crop with the credit balance in oeeuts
hands of a little over f 94,000.00 over and
above nil accounts outstanding, except
those covered by the Houd Issue of $ 1,140,
ooo.oo, nnd he accounts for nil the Bonds.
So ns far as I can see, there Is only one
other wnv In which this debt could have
been incurred, nud that is the proccedsof
the sugar, the product of the Olaa Sugar
Co. and the property of the Stockholders
of the Olaa Sugar Co. nud not of Dilling
ham Co. although to all nppearances they
have considered nnd treated it as their
Another question. Can your corres
pondent tell us what this f301.ooo.oo
written off on the books of the Olaa
Sugar Co. au account of the Puna Sugar
Co., is made up? Is it for advances made
to the Puna Plantation Co.? If so. whv
was it written off, when the Directors of
the Olaa Sugar Co., iu opposition to the
Auditor, insisted that the aqj.8oo.oo of
stock iu the Puna Plantation held by the
Olaa Sugar Co. and tnken over from the
Dillingham Co. should be retained ns nu
asset of the Olaa Sugar Co., If the stock
was considered n good asset, is the advan
ces made, not ns good an asset.
Now Mr. Editor, if your correspondent
will kindly nnswer these questions, he
will confer n favor 011 some of the Stock
holders of the Olaa Sugar Co.. and I mav
have n few other questions of the same
nature to ask him again.
