ORGANIZATION OF HILO
The business men of Hilo nnd L. A. Andrews have decided upon a
plan of organization of the company to engage in canning pineapples at
Hilo. Owing to objections being raised by some of the business men to
some cf the details of the plan as originally proposed, Mr. Andrews has
offered the following amended proposition which the leading business
men concerned state their approval of and which will be carried iiito
effect. Organization will be perfected at an early date.
The modifications consist mainly iu reducing the capitalization from
$100,000 to $25,000, and in eliminating the ownership of laud and
growing of pineapples from the business of the company. This latter
business will be carried on by individuals, and small companies which
arc already forming.
The capital slock of the company will be $25,000, with the authority
to increase to any amount desired, represented by 2500 shares, of the
par value of $10 each.
Six hundred and twenty-five shares are to be reserved as treasury
stock; 1875 shares, or 75 per cent., as required by law will be issued
immediately; of which 175 shares will be issued as paid-up-stock for
expenses incurred and services rendered iu organization, leaving 1700
shares on which will be realized $17,000, cash. As stated by Mr.
Andrews, the object of the company is:
OBJECT OF THIS COMPANY.
It is proposed to organize this Jolnt Stock Company for the purpose
of furnishing a market for the fruit produced by individuals.
The primary object is to bu'ld and 'establish in Hilo, Hawaii, a can
nery for pineapples produced by individual growers and to buy, can or
otherwise preserve and market, pineapples.
This company may have as a secondary object, the purchase of other
frUils that may be produced on Hawaii, such as bananas, guavas,
grapes, oranges, lemons, berries, etc.; also vegetables and other pro
ducts, such as taro, ginger, peppers, etc., and preserve or manufacture
them into jelly, jam, candied fruit, dried fruit, vinegar, wine, alcohol,
brandy, and such other manufactured articles as are marketable.
The profits of a business of this character depend much on the volume
of the business done, and there is every reason to believe that once
established, this business will rapidly grow to very large proportions,
yielding good returns to the investors.
It is estimated that there arc enqug. pineapples now growing in Hil
and vicinity to furnish from 300,000 to 500,000 plants durinc the next
jfew months, most of which will yield
many of the pineapples produced will
and the cannery may not have enough
1st year's pack, but there is no reason
of 20,000 cases in 1908.
The trial of Jailor J. H. Maby and John Kaili and Keeaumoku, assist
ants, indicted for assaulting a prisoiieijin the Hilo jail, resulted in a
verdict of not guilty being rettirno-i 5jiiVjurv. ne casu was Pro--cuted
by County Attorney Williams and the defendants were repres
ented by Attorneys W. S. Wise and. C. M. LeBlond. The charges
brought against the jailor and his assistants were investigated by High
Sheriff Henry and found not warranted soon after the indictments were
brought by the grand jury. The principal witness was Morito, the
Japanese, now convicted of murder.
two of the prisoners also testified. Ihe testimony though conflicting
made evident the fact that there had been no abuse of the prisoners as
charged. Both sides waived argument. Judge Parsons' charge to the
jury made plain the duties of jailors
ten minutes would be required to come to the decision which it took six
hours to reach.
"More encouraging for five-year
Such was the message received by Mr. Case, a member of the refund
committee, while at San Francisco, on his way home from Washington.
"That means 75 per cent, for five years instead of twenty years," said
Mr. Case, "or to shorten the term rather than the amount.
"I infer from this telegram from McClellan that Uncle Joe Cannon is
strongly blocking the measure on the twenty-year clause. He is con
scientious and he feels that we stand on the same footing as any other
Territory, or that we should not have any special privileges that could
not be extended to other Territories.
"However, I think Speaker Cannon in relenting. The committee
does not want to report, I infer, unless it sees some sign of success. It
doesn't want to report measures which may go by default and they are
feeling their way very carefully.
"I found among the senators and representatives that those who had
beeu here in the islands, even though for only a day, take a great deal
of interest in Hawaiian affairs."
Sugar Trust and Railroads. ..
Honolulu, March 22. The coast .files brought to The Star by the S.
S. Enterprise this morning contain the following relative to the Sugar
New York, March 8. Consternation verging upon panic reigned to
day in the offices of the American Sugar Refining Company and the
various railroad corporations which are defendants in an action brought
by the United States Government upon the complaint of William R.
Nearly every trunk line having a New York terminal, and the Amer
ican Sugar Refining Company, are
the Interstate Commerce law and the bherniau anti-trust law, in grant
ing and receiving rebates. The complaints filed by William R. Hearst
and the energetic action of the Government iu instituting proceedings
fell like a bombshell in the camp of the transportation lines and the
Attorney General Moody is repotted from Washington as saying that
some weeks ago a representative of the Hearst newspapers called on
him and said that information was iu the possession of those papers
tending to show that large rebates on the transportation of sugar had
been given to the American Sugar Refining Company by the trunk lines
jqf railroads running out of New York city, and asking if the Depart
1 ment of Justice desired to use the information in legal proceedings. An
I examination of the matter showed clearly that it was highly important
1 and tended to show the giving and receiving of large money rebates.
Mr. Moody said further: "In the Department at present the matter
I is in the stage of investigation. No determination as to who should be
, indicted has beeu arrived at, but full evidence will be laid before the
I Grand Jury, and they will determine against whom sufficient evidence
I exists to warrant indictments,"
