THE KUIMEIt TREE.
Another Indsstry Thnt Promises
Well For tho Island.
Among the industries on which
experimentation is, bring success
fully made In the islands is that of
the production of rubber". That
the rubber tree will flourish here is
evidenced by the large and thrifty
specimen on the Hilo hotel grounds.
It is further made apparent by ex
periments made on the island of
Oahu. A year ago the Nahlku
Rubber Co. was organized on that
island, and the first annual meeting'
of the stockholders of the company
was held recently, according to the
From the reports received at the
meeting of the Nahiku Rubber
Company, the industry promises to
be a flourishing one in Hawaii as
soon as things get fairly started.
Everything looks well and as soon
as the trees have reached sufficient
growth and can stand the tapping
for sap a just estimate of what can
be done will be formed. The meet
ing was held at the offices of E.O.
Hall & Son, W.W. Hall presiding.
W. W. Hall was reelected president
and the other officers are Dr. E. C.
Waterhouse, vice-president, Fred
Waterhouse, secretary-treasurer, D.
C. Lindsay, C. D. Ivckin, T. M.
Church and W. W. Thayer, direc
tors. The Nahiku rubber plantation is
at the eastern end of Maui, some
six miles from Hana. During the
period since the 900 acres which
constitute the plantation were ac
quired, 52,000 trees have been
planted and there are 10,000 odd
in the nursery. These will be set
out very soon. The trees are of
two Varieties, one of which can be
tapped after three years' growth
and the other being available only
after five years. Some of the trees
planted first have already been tap
ped for experimental purposes and
a splendid grade of rubber,, samples
of which were shown by W.
W. Hall has been produced.
The plantation is under the man
agement of Robert Anderson who
is at present in Honolulu.
The manager's report shows that
both the Para (Hevca Brazilliensis)
and Ceara trees grow well on their
land. They have experienced the
worst weather kuowu at Nahiku
for several years so that the plan
tation has had a thorough test of
what can be done under the most
unfavorable conditions. The only
question now is 'the quantity of
rubber the trees will produce. That
they will produce rubber equal to
the estimate of their prospectus is
demonstrated by the fact that sev
eral of the seven year old trees that
are growing at Nahiku have been
tapped and they have produced a
yield of a little over a pound of
rubber a year per tree.
The result already obtained and
the treasurer's report are so satis
factory that the policy of the com
pany has been modified so that
they will plant their eutire 900
acres this year instead of taking
two years to do it, so that after this
year tbe expanse will be merely a
matter of caring for the trees and
erecting such buildings as will be
necessary for curing and storing
Asked For Agricultural College.
E. H. Paris, secretary of the Mer
chants' Association, has received a
letter from Delegate Kalanianaole,
regarding the request of the Asso
ciation that he use his influence to
assist the proposition of securing a
Federal appropriation for an agri
cultural college in Hawaii. The
delegate says that he has seen Sec
retary Wilson of the Department of
Agriculture, on the proposition,
but that the chances are not very
good for the appropriation.
Kalanianaole says that while
Wilson is disposed to favor giving
assistance, the refunding proposi
tion is in the way and that if Ha
waii gets the refunding bill, it is
not likely that there will be any
more assistance for Hawaii in an
agricultural way than the regular
appropriation for the experiment
The Tffo-Mlle tl Mlnuto Motor.
The goal of the autordflbllistsi h
record of two miles a minute has
at last bccti reached, with a margin
to space. Yesterday at Ormond
beach two cars were sent over a
two-mile course, with flying starts,
in less than a minute, one car mak
ing the distance in 59 3-5 seconds,
and the other in 58 4-5 seconds.
This is undeniably phenomenal
speed and represents a great stride
in the planning, building and
operation of high-power motors.
It .remains to be seen whether it
will ever make for any practical
benefit. There is the possibility
that the perfection of power-producing
devices employed in these
motors may be applied in the
evolution of higher speeds on rail
roads. Already, however, it is to
be remembered, an electric car has
been driven over a test track in
Germany at the rate of 120 miles
an uour, approximately tue same
as the speed developed at Ormond
yesterday. So that the motor car
has no advantage thus far over the
electric traction car.
The main problem of transporta
tion today is not the attainment
of great speed, but the making
safer of the cars and train that are
now running at from sixty to J
ninety miles an hour in service. It
has been lately demonstrated to be
possible to send a train from New
York to Chicago in sixteen hours,
Involving running speeds as high
as ninety miles an hour at times.
This is an exceptional speed, and
the conditions are made perfect for
it. It would be utterly impossible
to maintain an entire railroad ser
vice on the same scale. Indeed,
the fastest regular express trains
now operated are sent between
those two cities in eighteen hours,
the sixteen-hour train having been
merely put to that pace for test
The two 'mile motor without
tracks is of course a toy, dangerous
to a deadly degree and incapable of
practical use on tbe roads. It is
positively impossible that a car
should be driven at a two-mile. rate
over the best of country roads,
with its turns and grades. Disaster
would surely meet it. The condi
tions must be perfect to permit a
speed of even a mile a minute.
Indeed at thirty miles an hour road
cars are frequently overturned or
swerved into obstructions because
of the roughness of the path or the
inequalities of rade. A pebble the
size of a rifle ball may serve to
puncture a tire and cause a fatal
Notwithstanding the positive
limitations to tbe practical use to
which these enormously powerful
and speedy cars may be put they
will continue to be developed to
higher and still higher stages of
perfection, and many, of their oper
ators will be maimed and killed.
The game is a dangerous one, and
probably its attractiveness to its
devotees comes mainly from that
fact. Washington Star.
'in Cool Altitudes.
Of his trip up into the mountains
while on the island of Hawaii two
weeks ago, Judge Dole said ou his
return to Honolulu:
"Residents of Honolulu, as a
general rule, have no idea of the
positive changes of climate which
can be had in these islands. Where
1 spent last week there is a steady
temperature at this season even
cooler than that of San Frausisco.
Actual frost occurs and water
freezes over night.
"The weather was delightfully
fine during my stay, with no rain
worth speaking about.
"Few Honolulu people realize
what a bracing climate can be en
joyed without leaving the islands."
