The most destructive fire in the history of this island occurred Satur
day night, February 3, in the burning of the big mill of the Onomea
Sugar Company at Papaikou
Disastrous as the hre was, part ot the mill was saved irom tue liatnes,
and in the part of the building burned, most of the machinery appears
not injured beyond utility, and the management hopes to be able to have
the mill in operation in time to sava.thc crop which they had but recent
ly begun milling. ,, ,
The cause of the fire is unknown. It originated somewhere in the
trash room near the entrance to the mill, possibly in the fine dust from
the megass, so dry that when ignited it burned like powder, and spread
with the suddenness almost of an explosion.
It was several hours before shutting down time and the mill was run
ning as usual, Mr. Cant, the head engineer, at his post, and all em
ployes busy in their positions. To fight the fire was impossible; it was
enough to escape from it. Fortunately the wind was blowing up the
gulch, and by the efforts of the army of Japs, who worked like heioes,
the rolling and crushing part of the mill, with the machine1 shop and
dynamos, was saved intact.
The damage cannot be fully estimated until the wreck is cleared
away. Tue molasses tanks, also tue juice scales, settling tanks, all tue
filter presses, the molasses feed plant. and lavatory were all destroyed
with the building.
Most of the machinery appears to be bnt little damaged. The boilers
and brick work look uninjured; the megasse furnaces, or feeders, are
out of place but can be replaced, and, apparently, little will need to be
done in the boiler room; the mills, engine and shredder are all right.
While the boiling house is u mass of ruins, it looks as though the
vacuum pans were none the worse; the 1 7-ton vacuurn pan stands on its
iron frame, also the 8-ton pan, and they appear not damaged; a smaller
nue supported on a wooden frame went down, but its loss is not im
portant. The two triple-eflecls, awo the crystallizers and the pumps
.ppear to be all right. The centrifugals will be in the worst shape,
being of delicate raachanism and exposed to the intense heat of the
stored sugar, which burned fiercely.! The centrifugals, however, may
be most easily replaced as extra ones are usually kept on hand by all
mills. The electric light plant is probably ruined.
It is not expected that a long time will be required to clear away the
debris, put up a new building and get machinery started again; and it is
hoped that within two months the mill can resume, and that once more
sugar will come rolling out at the rate ot from 60 to 100 tons a day, as
The cut cane will be a total loss unless taken to some of the other
mills, but on account of the cost of transportation, it is doubtful if this
will be found profitable. ,
About 15,000 bags of sugar were destroyed and 250 tons in process of
manufacture, lost. Seven thousand bags, the balance of the season's
output to date, was stored across the gulch at the wharf.
The fire made a brilliant illumination that was watched by thousands
from points along the coast from Hakalau to Olaa. The following day
crowds visited the scene.
John T. Moir, thctmanagerf was at Hamakua on business at the time
and arrived early the following morning
The fire was of a character that could not have been prevented, and
no blame attaches to anyone.
The sacked sugar was fully covered by insurance. The total loss is
estimated at between $90,000 and $100,000, not fully covered by insurance.
Arrivals by Enterprise.
The Enterprise arrived at 4 p. m. Monday from San Francisco bring

More Molokaris May Come.
"There are 130 families of Molokans coming here to settle the Kapaa
lands," said Land Commissioner Pratt, according to the Honolulu Bul
letin of Friday, January 31. MBut this by no means cleans out the
number available. As a matter of fact we can get all the Molokans we
want, and we will probably have some mote pretty soon.
"The Hakalau directors have voted to pay the expenses of a couple of
Molokans, so that tuey can come here to investigate the lands at Haka
lau. That shows how the Hakalau plantation stands in the matter. I
expect the Molokan representatives to come by the next steamer.
"The price which was fixed by the Board of appraisers for the Kapaa
tract was $29,587, which is at the rate of $5.69 an acre.
"There are 5200 acres altogether. Of this 2000 acres are cane laud,
240 acres rice land and the rest pasture land."
Mr. Thurston stated that: "The first consignment of those who are
coming for Kapaa will leave in about two weeks. There are about 550
coming altogether, but there may not be more than three or four hun
