Hy n vote of 144,236 shares for
it, to 17.04H ngninst it out of n to
tal of voting slinrcs of 21 y, 237, the
stockholders of Ohin plantation de
cided to accept the offer of the
hdndholdcts of I'titia Plantation, to
sell the outstanding issue of $500,
000 of Puna Plantation bonds for
i.H,(f)6 "6 in insh, for $56,000 of
(lie bonds and. 22, 200 shares of paid
up slock of Olna for the leinaining
$440,000 of Puna bonds. Olaa
plantation already owns ninety per
cent of the stock of Puna plantation,
so that with the consummation of
the deal authorized, Olaa will own
all the bonds and praticnlly all the
stock of Puna, which is now in the
nanus ol a receiver.
The offer of sale came in the form
of a letter addiessed to the Olaa
Company by H. lf. Dillingham set
ting out his proposal. The letter
set out in full the ownership of the
bonds, and atgucd at .Mime length
the advantages of the proposal. It
set out that the receiver would on,
a caicful estimate receive $170,000
and his expenses would be $67,000
leaving $102,000 which would come
to Olna plantation as the result of
accepting the offer.
In addition, the $440,000 were
owned by San Francisco bankers,
whose aid was practically a neces-
miv In ftitlditlcr the debt nf fllnn.
o Mt ' ra
w J (5 J 1 nnd this plan if carried out would
tend to secure tueir good will, anil
if the Olaa debt could be funded,
Olaa could be very soon placed oil
a dividend paying basis.
In the course of the debate it was
insisted that the purchase of Puna
would not necessaiily involve Olaa
in any more advances, unless the
agent chose to make them.
S. M. Damon handed in a state
ment as from the agents of Olaa
which ran as follows:
"As shareholders we do not con
sider it in the interest of share hol
ders of Olaa that so large a portion
of the assets of the Olaa Sugar Co.
should be given to the bondholders
of Puna for their bonds.
"The debt of Olaa today to its
agents is $870,000, and under pre
sent circumstances, we are not prc
paied to make any advances to the
Olaa Sugar Co. Itd, for the purpose
of carrying on Puna Plantation."
S. M. Damon then gave an ac
count of the financial difficulties
that had so burdened it, and the
measures that had been taken to
meet them. When the present
ngents took hold of Olaa against
the advice of fridnds, it had been
their policy then to cut adiift from
Puna and to devote every dollar
we could get to Olaa. The lesults
have justified this policy. And to
day Olaa is second to no plantation
in the Islands in its future prospects.
Hy concentrating its efforts on Olaa
alone and not spending money on
Puna qr the Ililo railroad, we shall
develope a splendid property. It
has r 1, 000 acres, it has water faci
lities and everything else in re
source. If it had the $600,000
which it has advanced to Puna and
Ililo railroad it would not be in the
condition it is. That money is
gone and there is no use crying
over spilt milk. Hut the lesson is,
the point I want to make is, that if
we confine ourselves to Olaa and
don t divert our attention to Puna
or Ililo railway we arc all right.

While our own citizens continued
lo pay just as much for their coffee
and for their entire matutinal bill
of fare, in lact the Hi niliaii coffee
planters were enjoying an aiea of
unexpected prosperity. They, of
course, went to Paris in huge num
bers nnd spent there like princes
the proceeds of our generosity.
More anions still, our gift went in
to the pockets of men who were
supplying us with a product grown
by slave labor.
Now that the prices paid Hrn7.il
inn planters for the pioduct is so
low that any considerable 'eduction
would force many producers out of
the business, it may be that the
imposition of nn import duty by
this country would be looked upon
by them as an unfriendly act. This,
however should not influence our
action. Though we have curried
their coffee, rubber nnd hides on
our fiee list for so many years, they
they have not hesitated to oppose
all our efforts to secure reciprocal
traffic concessions. It has taken
years for us to get even a slight
concession 011 flour, mid that nt a
time when their market was nearly
lost to us. Their argument has
been that we abolished the duties
on their pioducts to serve our own
purposes, and therefore they were
under no obligation to reciprocate.
In my opinion it would be sound
policy for us to impose a duty on
coffee. It is not a necessity: in
fact, on excessive indulgence in its
use ery often proves injurious.
Wc can better afford to tax coffee,
oven at the risk of adding a fraclion
to the cost of our breakfast tables,
than weean to add the smallest frac
tion to the articles of real necessity.
How Brazil will meet the emergen
cy wc need not ask. Should it
lead to a corresponding reduction
in the export duties now levied by
the coffee-producing states (it is no
longer a national tax), it will be no
more than a reversal of what hap
pened when we abolished the duty.
By all means let us have a duty on
coffee, and at the same time let us
put coal, lumber and other necessi
ties on the free list.
l'roposi'il Duly On CoirVe.
With regard to your recent advo
cacy of an import duly on coffee,
which 1 am glad to note, says A.J.
Intnouieiix of Stanford Univcisity
in the San b'rancisco Chronicle,
there is one point that should not
be overlooked. When we took off
our import duty on coffee in 1872
lo provide a "free breakfast table"
for the confiding taxpayer the
price of the article in Brazil at once
went up. Instead of making n
present to American coiisum.-rs, our
legislators gave it to the Brazilian
producers. Iater on the Brazilian
Government took over the bonus
through the operation of an export
duty which continues to this day.
I went to Brazil a few years la
ter and was personally cognizant of
the effects of this curious miscar
riage of Congressional beneficence.
