DULUGATtt KALANIANAOLK Slates,
ill a letter to the Honolulu Star,
that he has called upon Secretary
Root and presented to him the mat
ter proposed by the Promotion
Committee that the Secretary should
rnit n conference to be held in
Honolulu of all the American con
sular and commercial agents sta
tioned at posts in countries border
ing on the Pacific, and that he has
received the interested attention of
Secretary Root and his promise to
give the matter due consideration.
Iu-referqnce to the prospects of se
curing the expenditure in the Ter
ritory of 75 per cent of the federal
revenues, the delegate says: "Be
yond a doubt any measure of this
sort will meet with strong opposi
tion from certain influential mem
bers of Congress. I have, how
ever, received substantial encour
agement already in the direct prom
ise of help from Col. Hepburn and
Chairman Tawney of the committee
on appropriations. Our elation
over the promise of their help is
tempered by the fact that they feel
the percentage of revenue to be set
aside should be reduced from 75
per cent to 50 per cent. It was in
evitable that this suggestion should
be made during the course of the
bill, and it will simply have to be
overcome, if we are able to convince
them of the reasonableness of the
president's original recommenda
tions." With harbor improvement a
prospect, a new steamer being built
to be put on the San Francisco-Hilo
run, a new steamer about ready to
put on the Honolulu-Hilo run, a
semi-weekly mail service to be in
augurated, an extensive sewer sys
tem being constructed, an up-to-date
jail being built, and a commodious
and attractive appearing high school
building of brick or stone about to
be begun, also a modern business
block to be built by the Masons,
there is a list of items to show that
there is something doing in Hilo.
And this does not by any means ex
haust the list of enterprises on foot.
The list of minor projects might
be extended to considerable length;
and as to undeveloped resources and
future possibilities, the story would
be a long one. Time will work
many of these out, meanwhile Hilo
is making satisfactory progress
along many lines.
Driving stock through the streets
during the busy hours of the day,
as is occasionally done in Hilo, isj a
proceeding attended with some dan
ger to persons passing, and is the
cause of considerable alarm, espec
ially to women and children. The
requirement, usual in cities, that
cattle driving upon streets be done
at night, is a good one and ought
to be put into effect in Hilo.
Japanese Question on Kuunl.

Hook by Dr. Henry M. Lyiiuui.
Messrs. A. C. McClure & Co. of Chi
cago, U. S. A., have in preparation for
publication in the spring a volume that
should be of especial interest to people
resident in the islands, and of
Hilo, particularly. The work is
entitled "Hawaiian Yesterdays," and is
written by Dr. Henry M. Lyman, a dis
tinguished surgeon of Chicago, whose
father, David B. Lyman, was o well
known missionary in the Islands in the
early thirties. The txok is n straight
away account of what a boy saw oflife
here in this early days, and gives much
interesting material about prominent
personages he came in contract with.
The book will be crown octavo in size,
and will be profusely illustrated.
Now Street Lights.
Supervisor Desha, to whom the request
fur more street lights was referred, has
put in an order to the Electric Light
Company for 15 new 32-candle-power in
candesccnts, the order to take effect on
March 1. These lights will be so dis
tributed as to give the best possible ser
vice and it is believed the new arrange
ment of them will be better than the
former when the lights were discon
tinued. The present arc lights are to be
raised somewhat and an arc is to be in
stalled at government wharf when com
pleted. There are four new incandescents
for Puueo, and others will be placed
where needed throughout the city.

partment will put into effect a semi

intendent railway mail service, at the
head of the service in the Islands, was in
Hilo during the week and gave the in
formation. He has just returned from a
trip to Washington, D. C. This improve
ment is due to the work of the Board of
Trade. The Claudinc will probably be
put on the regular run at that time, to
handle the mail and other business, leav
ing Honolulu about 5 p, m. Fridays, and
arriving at Hilo early Sunday mornings.
Well-known Japnneso Dead.

men on the ship manifested a creditable
Btnpe of honor by making up the amount

HAWAIIAN' SUUAfl KEFINtiltY.
The following is a circular letter
issued by the California and Ha
waiian Sugar Refining Co., at San
Francisco, Jan. 1, igoG, to the
"It gives us great pleasure to be
able to state that on or before
April 1st, 1906, the California and
Hawaii Sugar Refining Company,
by beginning the work of refining
raw sugar, will cuter the field of
the Refined Sugar Business. This
Corporation, hereafter to be
familiarly knowu as the "Hawaiian
Refinery," has entered into strong
and intimate relation withJHawaii-
an Plantation Companies. Every
share of our stock is owned or
controlled by Hawaiian Planters,
or their close associates hi Cal
ifornia, and these Hawaiian share
holders arc, in turn, members of
the Sugar Factors Company,
Limited, of Honolulu, and consti
tute its shareholders.
"Interdependence between Island
Plantations, Planters and the
Sugar Factors Company, Limited,
on the one hand, and the California
and Hawaiian Sugar Refining
Company ou the other, not only
secures to us absolutely, under con
tracts for a long term of years,
a supply ot raw sugar whicu is
inexhaustible, and our control of
which is certain, but also gives to
our enterprise as a Sugar Refinery
(refining raw sugar in California)
a positiou which, we confidently
assert, is impregnable.
"Of the fifty-four companies op
erating on the Hawaiian Islands,
thirty-seven (comprising tnostfof
the largest) are members of the
Sugar Factors ' Company, Limited.
"The Sugar Factors Company",
Limited, was. organized in July of
1904, for the purpose of selling,
transporting, etc., the raw sugar
product of its members.
"The total capitalization of all
the Hawaiian Island plantations is
about $83,000,000; $66,000,000 of
which is represented by the Sugar
Factors Company, Limited; or 80
per cent of the total. For the crop
year ending September 30, 1905,
the total Island output of sugar was
426,248 tons, which was produced
on plantations now represented as
By Sugar Factors
Co., Limited 349,315 tons or 82
By all others(includ
tons) 76.933 tons or 18
426,248 tons or 100
"Last season the deliveries of
Hawaiian cane sugar for consump
tion in the District west of the
Mississippi River were in excess of
165,000 tons, so it will be obvious
that the Hawaiian Refinery is
splendidly equipped to take care of
a large share of your business prop
erly. "The Hawaiian Refinery is one
of the most modern and up-to-date
refineries in existence, and will
have installed therein the most
efficient machinery known to the
"Its administration is iu the
hands of the following directors:
R. P. Rithet, president, (Welch &
Co.); Wallace M. Alexander, vice
president, (Alexander & Baldwin,
Ltd.); Frank B. Anderson, treas
urer, (Bank of California); Warren
D. Clark, (Williams, Dimond &
Co.); Albert Meyer, (Bank , of
Daniel Meyer); James Rolph, Jr.,
(Hind, Rolph & Co.); George E.
"Mr. George M. Rolph, of San
Francisco, has been appointed
manager, with full power to attend
to the active business interests of
the corporation. He is well versed
in the needs of this market, and its
bearing upon the sugar industry of
the United States.
"The refining1 operations will be
under Mr. Max Lorenz, whose ex
perience in refining sugar in the
German refiueries, followed by his
very recent work in the production
of raw sugar in the Hawaiian Isl
ands, well fits him for his duties
"We have ventured,' In a general
way, to outline our position, and
now we respectfully bolicit a fair
share of your trade.
"With the above statement of
facts as to the strength of our posi
tion before you, we feel that we are
entitled to, and should receive,
your hearty co-operation.
"Ask your jobber for "Hawaiian
Refinery" sugar which is hereby
guaranteed cane sugar.

of Hawaii after an absence of eighteen
days. At the request of the managers he
visited Paauhau, Hoiiotnu and Pepcckeo
sugtr plantations, to lay out schemes of
tree-planting upon these plantations,
"They are planting trees chiefly for
firewood," Mr. Haughs said last night.
"At Paauhau, also at Houomu, a. strip
of woods is to be planted along the beach
to protect the cane from the salt spray.
Mostly Ironwood will be planted at the
beach. In other parts It will be black
wattle, If we can get it to grow.
"I was also in Waiuiea, ou the Parker
ranch, getting information for the board.
Twenty-five thousand trees have been
planted there within the past two years."
