Famous Astronomer Visits Craters.
On last Tuesday, Prof. W. II. Pickering and his son made the ascent
of Mauna Loa with a party of nine from the Humuulu Sheep Station.
The caravan was headed by Eben Low and a mountain guide familiar
with the lava flows and trails. Those who composed the party were
Prof. W. H. Pickering, W. T. Pickering, Eben Low, C. S. Holloway,
G. II. Gere, K. S. Gjerdrum, Paymaster Brown, J. W. Waldrou, D.
Forbes, R. Persey aud Ashley.
They first made the ascent of Mauna Kea on Friday preceding, tak
ing lunch at the edge of the lake, aud returning to the Sheep Station on
the same day. On Sunday the start was made for Mauna Loa and the
ascent, which was more difficult aud rugged, was made without serious
accident. The party lost their wav on the slopes oj Mauna Loa, but a
horse belonging to Mr. Eben Low was turned loose and led the party
safely to their starting point.
Prof. Pickering is an astronomer of Harvard University who has
studied the moon for twenty years and asserts that many of the so-called
distinct volcanoes there are still active. Prof. Pickering holds his
theory against the belief of most of his astronomical colleagues and be
lieves the moon shows unmistakable signs of atmosphere, water aud
vegetation. Prof. Pickering was much impressed with the character
and formation of the craters of Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea, as well as
the Kilauea, which is now iutermittently active

Keolanui Faces Seven Damage Suits.
Sheriff Keolanui is up to his neck in hot water, if the damage suits
filed against him in the Circuit Court count for anything. There have
been seven complaints filed, all by Japanese, alleging damages aggregat
"E $55o for false imprisonment, malicious prosecution and trespass.
Sibao Momokichi, Sibao Kingoro and Okubo Kagiro file separate suits
for $5000 each for having been wrongfully imprisoned iu the county jail
for two days from July 29th to 31st upon the charge of conspiracy to
extort money from a fellow countryman, a nolle prosequi being entered
by Sheriff Keolanui when the case came on for hearing before the Dis
Ito Yohei, Shibao Kitaro and Yano Tomekichi likewise bring legal
proceedings for $10,000 each for false imprisonment. The complaints
which are all alike allege that they wore arrested at Honomu without
right or authority, brought to Hilo and there imprisoned in the Hilo jail
from the 28th to the 29th day of July, in company "with low and de
graded felons," and that during their imprisonment they were compelled
to go without proper and customary food and were deprived of their
ordinary comforts of life, suffering great pain and distress of both mind
and body, to the extent of $10,000 apiece.
The seventh case is that of Okuso Tarakichi, for tresspass growing
out of the same circumstances as the three latter cases, for which the
aggrieved Japanese sues for $10,000. Attorney Carl S. Smith brines
suit for each of the Japanese gentlemen, whose feelings have bceu
wounded in the aggregate of $55,000 worth.
Banana Planters Are Discouraged.
A report comes from Olaa that all of the banana planters in the vicinity
of ii miles mid Buffalo Station are discouraged and are clearing their
lanu ior planting cane.
It is stated by an Olaa planter that very few bananas will be shipped
from Olaa district on this trip of the S. S. Enterprise as a result of the
very poor returns received from former shipments of fruit. Large, beau
tiful bunches of fruit are rotting in the fields and are being given away
to whoever will remove them. Bunches, none of which are under eight,
nine and ten hands each, are permitted to go to waste because of the in
difference on the part of the planters.
The only people, it is claimed, who are making any money out of the
banana business are the commission men at San Francisco and the
steatnsliip,company. The banana men state that one fruit steamer
every five weeks is wholly inadequate for carrying the fruit now planted
and ready for market. The agreement ol Captain Matson to take ship
ments up to 10,000 a month has caused a large number of persons to
engage in the banana industry to a loss to themselves. If there were a
semi-monthly steamer service to the Coast, there would be 14,000 to
15,000 bunches a month now ready for shipment, with the output
steadily increasing. But as is stated, many of the growers have lost all
interest iu the business and are putting in cane, where formerly they
Inquiry at the office of the Matson Navigation Company discloses the
fact that out of the space for 7,000 bunches of bananas reserved, applica
tion had been made for space for 6,200 bunches. While this shows a
falling off from previous shipments it is known that there has been a
marked improvement in the size and quality of bananas offered. The
loss which the banana planters have suffered, it is stated by the steam
ship people, is a matter for which they are not responsible.
In the past no attempt has been made to examine the wrapped bundles
of fruit shipped, it being taken for granted that only one bunch of
bananas was contained in a bundle. As the reports and returns from
San Francisco have shown, two and sometimes more bunches of inferior
bananas have been discovered in a single bundle.
The agreement of Capt. Matson to accept 10,000 bunches of bananas
a month, which has been such a bone of contention, appears to have
been one sided, it is alleged. At the time Capt. Matson said he would
be able to carry this amount of fruit per month he wanted the banana
growers to contract for 10,000 bunches per month for ten years, but that
individually or collectively, they would not accept the proposition.
However, as an evidence of good faith on his part, Capt. Matson reim
bursed the growers who claimed to have lost by bananas being left on
the dock, at the rate of twenty-five cents a bunch.
While matters have not been definitely outlined, it is rumored that
arrangements are now being negotiated for placing another steamer 011
the Ililo-San Francisco route iu the fruit carrying trade.
This will tend to relieve the congested condition of the fruit market at
Hilo and soon put the Hilo banana on a substantial footing iu San Fran
cisco where it will be able to compete with the Bluefields and other
boutu American mm.
The departure of the S. S. Enterprise will be delayed iu sailing from
Hilo and Agent Guard suggests that banana shippers do not begin
cutting too soon. The Enterprise will sail about Wednesdny noon
August 30th, and the banana train will probably go out early on the
morning of Tuesday, August 29th,
