A railroad and a plantation company have been incorporated for Konn.
The capital stock of the railroad is $100,000, with authority to increase
to $1,000,000, and F. 1). McStocker is the principal stockholder. The
Development Company is capitalized at $250,000, with $500,000 as limit
The Advertiser says of them, editdrially:
"The first public step was taken yesterday for the rehabilitation of the
Kona Plantation in the filing of articles of incorporation of the Kona
Development Company. It is a reorganization that has beet; in progress,
iu fact, for months past, although the gentlemen promoting it have not
heretofore been ready to nmk definite public announcement of their
I plans. Coincideutally with the filing of articles for the Kona Improve
raent Company, application is tnaae tor a cuartcr tor tne West Hawaii
railway, whose present purpose is to built a railroad through North and
South Kona, with a sea outlet at Kailua, Napoopoo or Kaawaloa, and
with the- reserved right, if that should later be found advisable, to ex
tend its lines into Kohala or Kau, orboth.
"With the coming of these enterprises, the prediction may be ventured
that thitigs will soon begin to hum in Kona, The Kona country is one
of the richest regions in the Hawaiian islands. That it has not been
earlier and more thoroughly exploited is, perhaps, referable to the fact
that a sugar enterprise once went to disaster there, and a failure of the
kind that was made on Kona plantations calculated to give the region
a black eye, ns it did albeit the region be not at all to blame.
"By mistakes we learn, however, and the new Kona Development
Company will be managed upon safer lines, and iu the light of more
recent experience, with modern methods. And there is no reason, iu
the nature of things, why the enterprise should not be abundantly
New Inter-Island Steamer.
Honolulu, April 5. A meeting of the board of directors of the Inter
Island Steam Navigation Company will bejcalled for tomorrow morning
to pass upon the plans and to finally determine whether the contract for
the construction of the new stBamer will be authorized. The construc
tion of the vessel has, it js understood tupon excellent authority, been
practically decided by the company, and'the meeting tomorrow will no
doubt result in the vessel being ordered .VThe new vessel will replace
the steamer Kinatt which is now inadequate to the demands of the tourist
travel between Honolulu and Hilo.
Land Associations Satisfied.
Messrs Ferry and Fernandez returned by Tuesday's Kihau from an
interview with Land Commissioner Pratt and Acting Governor Atkin
son relative to the allotment of Hakalau lands to the members of the
Portuguese land associations. The result was an increase in the amount
of land each applicant would be permitted to file upon, by. the addition
of from five to eight acres each of pjstyrc laud, not cultivable. This
makes a total allotment of nearly 35 gfireVpf land for each applicant and
the representatives express themselves as entirely satisfied, though their
application was made for 50 acres each. As soon as possession can be
obtained, after the present leases expire iu June, the new possessors will
set about the cultivation of the same, raisiug cane, pineapples or what
ever product promises the most of prout. Mr. Ailonso states that he
has no doubt cane will be most profitable and that no difficulty will be
experienced in making terms with the mill people, ns it will be for the
mutual interest of manufacturer and planter to do so.
As the Advertiser states it: "Iwenty-five acres of cane land, and
approximately two acres for a house.lot, the Portuguese Settlement Asso
ciation formed to take up the Hakalau lands, on Hawaii, have agreed to
accept at the bauds of the Territorial authorities, with the reserved right
to apply for a lease of lands above the cane belt and below the forest line
for pasture lands.
"This agreement was reached at a conference held yesterday afternoon
in the Governo's office, and lasting several hours."
"The amount of cane land in the Territory is limited, and while the
lands now under lease will be thrown open for settlement as fast as the
leases expire, it is, not and will not be the policy of the government to
permit anybody to get more than his share of the lands his fair share.
"And settlers must be bona fide dwellers on and tillers of the soil. If
they get cane land there must be a likelihood that they will keep it in
cane, and not lessen the productive area. If they do lessen it, the terri
torial income will be cut down by that much, and realizations from taxt s
will be decreased.
"The Hakalau lands will be thrown open as soon as can be after the
leases expire in June and July. The Portuguese settlers will be taken
care of, will have pasture for the stock needed to work their lands, will
have a crop of sugar from their lauds the first year, and will build up a
thriving community of American citizens on a part of one of the great
plantations. And the plantation property will not be confiscated."
The trains of this Company between
Hilo and Puna will be run as follows:
Leave Hilo Station, by way of Rail
road Wharf, for Olaa and Puna, upon the
arrival of the Steamship Klnau, running
through to Puna and stopping at I'aliot.

May Transfer Philippines.
Washington, March 26. Although Secretary Taft of the War De
partment saw fit recently to deny the report that Japan had made certain
overtures to the United States for the acquisition of the Philippines, cor
roborative evidence is at hand that the Japanese government has been
desirous of opening negotiations to that end.
President Roosevelt, nccordiug to report, desired to dispose of the
Philippine problem before the end of his present term in the White
House. He is represented as being convinced that our ownership of the
islands as "possessions, not parts" of the United States is not acceptable
to the people of the United States, and will eventually mean much larger
expenditures on the part of our home government than have been made
even thus far.
The Banana Trust for Islands.
The Hilo Board of Trade has the following communication from
Washington from Jared D. Smith, director of the U. S. Agticultural
Experiment Station at Honolulu. It was read at the last meeting of thu
executive committee of the Board of Trade.
"I am entering mto negotiations, unofficially, and on my own initia
tion, with the United Fruit Co., the corporation controlling the banana
business of the United States, to .see if T ran intoi-oat Mmm ,n ,i,n .......
of putting some of their fruit steamers into the trade between the islands
and the coast. This company owns and onerates about r en nronn
fruit steamers, mainly iu the Atlantic and Caribbean region. It has
seemed to me that it would be much better for our growers to work with
rather than in conipetion with these powerful interests. The matter
of passenger traffic from the coast to Hawaii will undoubtedly be dis
cussed. "I WOUld advise VOtt to lintifv linnnun irrmvprc ii.l.r. T t..i:n..
quite generally discouraged with the outlook, that powerful interests in
this couutry, namely the citrus nml dec'duoi!." fruit Growers' nssnrinttn,,
throughout the land, are working for a duty 011 bananas. The idea of
these interests is to shut out the banana, now grown about almost ex
clusively in foreign countries, from disastrous competition with main
land grown fruits, especially the apple and pear. If these American
fruit growers are successful in their fight, then Hawaii and Porto Rico
are absolutely the only American territories where the banana can be
grown, and banana growers still engaged iu production should profit
greitly from such legislation.
"I am not iu a position to make any promises, but am honing that if
this company decides to enter the Hawaiian banana field there will be
co-operation with them.V
