Hawaiian Tobacco Calls Forth Approval.
The Hawaiian Experimental Station on the Louisson plantation iu
Hamakua is producing some wonderful results iu the growth of tobacco.
In a conversation with Mr. C. R. Blacow, who is iu charge of the to
bacco culture, a Tkimjtk representative learned that he now has three
acres of laud under cultivation, and that he is growing from six to eight
varieties of tobacco on the place. Among those grown ate some from
Havana seedling, Connecticut seedling, Comstock Spanish, Dimmer
Spanish, Sumatra, Japan, Hawaiian and Vueltn Abajo Havana seed.
Some of thesevnrietics grow to the height of .six to ten feet with stalks
of two niches iu diameter. The leaves of the coarser quality measure
from thirty-six to forty inches in length mid from twelve to fifteen inches
in width, while the Vuelti Abajo being of a finer quality measures from
twelve to twenty-two inches in length and from eight to fourteen inches
iu width. On account of the larger leaves of the coarser quality, an
acre of laud will produce about from 1500 to 2000 pounds per acre, while
the Vuelta Abajo will produce only about 1000 pounds to the ncrc. It
takes about one mans attention for every acre during the maturing of
thecrop. In Hawaii we can obtain two crops in one year. At the Ex
perimental station they arc planting and takinc off crops every month
in the year. After the crop is off it has to be cured for about eight
months. Mr. Walter S. McLean, manager of the tobacco department
of the Hilo Mercantile Co., obtained about three pounds of the cured
tobacco grown on the Island and forwarded the same to the manufac
turers of the famous El Pelancia Clear Havana and the El Merito Cigars.
He has received a box of these Hawniian cigars, which he declares to be
excellent in their aroma and the fineness of their smoke. He also received
the following letter from the manufacturer, which indicates the' quality
of tobacco grown in Hawaiian soil:
Philadelphia, July 6, 1905.
Mr. W. S. McLean, Hilo, II. I.
Dear Sir: We mail you today under separate cover, a twenty-five
box of cigars made of your tobacco The writer, Mr. B., is smoking one
while dictating this letter, and is surprised to find such a sweet, clean
smoke produced from the Connecticut seed. The tobacco in itself h
what we would consider of a very good, sweet, domestic tobacco, having
a superior quality of this class, and would compete with tobacco raised
in this country sold to the manufacturer at from 10 to 15 cents a pound.
It will of course depend largely upon what a farmer could raise per acre
to ascertain whether it would become a profitable investment to grow a
We should like to have the pleasure of a further experiment if there
are any farmers in your locality who have raised any tobacco we would
like to have about 50 or 100 pounds of it, which would enable us to in
vestigate it more thoroughly than we have done with the small sample
we have had to experiment with.
As we are aware that your country produces a great deal of sugar, it
appeals to us that yuu should be able to grew a finer qtialUyUobncco
from Havana seed on your sugar soil, or soil similar to that of the sugar
land. Tobacco raised from the Vuelta Abajo Havana seed, of course
will not produce the same number of lbs. per acre as our domestic tobac
co, but if successful in the growing of it, and producing at least a part
of its character of the Cuban aroma, the farmer in your country should
be able to realize considerable more money lor his tobacco.
The burning quality of your sample is exceptionally good, and the
taste of it we take pleasure iu saying would be likely to grow upon a
man smoking a nickel cigar, and to be manipulated with a good Havana
tobacco, we believe it has the character aud features Hint it would bring
To give you an idea how to test the cigar with Havana tobacco, take
and light a cigar of your tobacco, and at the same time tnke a fine Ha
vana cigar draw the smoke from both the cigars at the same lime
this will give you an idea of how fine a smoke your tobacco would pro
duce if it was placed with, kiy half Havana tobacco. In our estimation
it makes a finer smoke to mix with Havana tobacco than any of our or
dinary domestic tobaccos today on the market, and by all means the
pleasure and taste of it, is very much superior to the tobacco grown iu
Florida, which is now so successfully used by numerous manufacturers
in Tampa and Key West posing as clear Havana manufacturers.
Auy further information that you desire from us we shall be pleased
to give you at any time that you may command us.
We hope that you will enjoy the cigars iu question, while we beg to

There May Have Been Foul Play.
The Cornor's jury in the murder that took place at Papaikou last
Tuesday have brought in a verdict, iu which they say that by reason of
the very conflicting testimony and the apparent perjury that was com
mitted before the itiquisitj6n board, there is reason to believe that tilts
dead man in the case may have been murdered, and they therefore say
that he came to his death by means of some unknown baud. Kiumii
was the Japanese man who came to the Ilononiu camp and after a pro
longed conversation with his wife Yoshinn set upon her and killed her.
He was found dead also with several wounds upon his body, and bis
throat cut across, and with signs that he had attempted to commit "ha
rikire." The investigation of the coronor's jury showed that there were a
couple of knife cuts on his wrist, also across his stomach and upon his
back, which might indicate that some third party may have done thu
deed. Yoshina, the woman in the case was living with Ogushi Taro
kichi with the consent of her husband. It seems that the husband was
in camp on the day iu question endeavoring to get from Ogushi $250,
the same being the price of his wife. On the day of the homicide, he
had received $40 from Ogushi, which, according to the receipt, was to
cover his expenses in going to Ilononiu. As a side issue resulting fioin
the investigation, three Japanese, named Shibao Kingoro, Shibao Mo
mokicht and Okubo are now under arrest for conspiracy to extort money
from Ogushi Tarokichi.
Lieutenant Slattery Meets Board of Trade.
The Ililo Board of Trade was fortunate in having quite a good sized
attendance last Thursday evening, when they gathered to meet Lieut.
Slattery of the U. S. Survey Department. lie informed those present
that he bad obtained practically all the information necessary to lay be
fore Congress relative to the building of the breakwater. He had ex
cellent maps of the harbor, showing the reef and the locality of the
shipping. He had also received tables giving the imports and exports
and the tonnage in and out of Ililo. What he desired to obtain was an
estimate of the increased cost to shipping by reason of the absence of n
breakwater. If a breakwater was built and wharves established, how
much would the shipping save by being able to unload upon wharves
instead of using lighters as at the present time? The matter was referred
to a committee consisting of John A. .Scott, Chairman, P. Peck, A.
Lindsay, E. F. Nichols and R. T. Guard. Their report will go dowti
to Honolulu by the next Kinau.
