IT is encouraging to learn tlint
the powers thnt be in Washington
nrc-alive to Hawaii's interests; tint
they recognize that annexation to
date has not operated for the finan
cial or industrial benefit of Hawaii,
but the contrary, and has not met
the expectations of the people of
the islands. The committee setit to
Wasbineton has put before inter
ested and serious listeners desired
information on all these points, and
we now have assurance that past
mistakes will be corrected and
errors righted, so that old time, and
greater, prosperity, by nature their
due, may return to the islands.
Tni pineapple cannery is now
auspiciously organized and ready
for business. The best men in the
community arc at its head, insuring
wise management which is the key
to its success. In view of the ex
periments made iu pineapple can
ning on this, and the other islands,
there can be no doubt but that it
will be a great benefit to this local
ity, a benefit in which the numerous
smaller growers can fully share.
What the establishment may do for
Hilo is suggested by the estimated
value the cannery now building iu
Honolulu will.be to that city. The
latter will employ 150 persons, and
forty additional in the can factory.
It will can 75,000 cases this season,
and double the amount next season.
The accompany has over 400 acres
of fruit planted, and next year will
plant about 650 acres. The field
for the industry here is unlimited.
The Advbktisbr suggests the
the possibility that the banana in
dustry in the Islands may be the
recipient of benefits from an unex
pected source iu the mainland
demand for a tariff on bananas:
"More people," it says, "are
going into tobacco on the Hama
kua uplands and the outlook for
a fine industry is most promising.
There, is also a better chance for
bananas since the agitation began
to put a duty on them. Oddly
enough the Eastern apple, peach
and pear-growers, an enormous
body of voters, are behind the tariff
scheme. Thny find that the people
arc eating bananas to the neglect of
home-grown fruit and naturally
enough they ask for protection
from the competing fruit of foreign
lands. Of course they could not
e'xclude Hawaiian bananas nor
l'orto Rican and ,if their proposed
bill is enacted, Hawaii can easily
control the entire trade west of the
Rocky mountains at a living price."
Tiih production of commercial
alcohol from bananas has been con
sidered at various times in the
Islands. A bill is now before Con
gress to remove the revenue tariff
from alcohol. As this tariff is high,
its removal will greatly lessen the
price at which alcohol may be sold,
and will result in the great increase
in its use. The motor car alone,
should the price become low enough
to permit of its use, would consume
immense quantities, so superior is
it to benzine for the purpose, and
so wide spread is becoming the use
of the auto. The prospects for a
greatly increased demand for alcohol
suggests the advantages offered here
for its manufacture. An alcohol
manufactory might best be operated
in conjunction with the banana
shipping business; all fruit not up
to highest standard, and fruit
maturing between steamers, beg
ing turned into alcohol, thereby
eliminating waste. Molasses from
the sugar mills, also would be more
valuable for production of alcohol
than for feed for animals. The
banana, it is suggested also, would
furnish here an unlimited and con
stant all-the-year-round supply,
affording thereby an advantage over arrived In port from Honolulu Saturday

offering a method of converting tt
product now largely going to waste,
into profit. The manufacture of
liqueurs, also, suggests itself in this
connection. It is believed superior
articles could be manufactured from
our island fruits on account of the
delicacy of their flavor, that, a re
putation once established, would
find a wide sale.
Item oral of n Hotly In Thotr
Tom Pay Kin, president of the Chinese
Cemetery association, was nrrestcd for the
removal of the body of Lee Wn Fu from
one part of the burial ground to another,
without obtaining the permission of the
health board. The case came up before
Judge Ilapni Monday morning aud was
set for trial on Friday. The removal ap
pears to nave been without ceremony or
approval of friends aud calculated, as It
did, to arouse a protest, particularly from
Chinamen, according to whose ideas it
is the highest possible indignity. The
See Vep faction, to which Lee Wn Fu be
longed, arc up In arms, so to speak, and
have employed special counsel to fight
the case. About two hundred of them
came into town Monday morning, as
many as could get away from the planta
tions from Hoonhiua to Olaa. They
asked their attorney to prepare legal
papers looking to the division of the
cemetery in their own interest and as.
opposed to the Ullo Chinese. The fac
tions are composed of individuals from
different Chinese states and great animo
sity appears to exist between them.
For Worthy Object.
The vaudeville entertainment cud ball
to be given Saturday night at Spreckels'
Hall under the auspices of the Board of
Trade, promises to be one of the most
enjoyable affairs ever given in Hilo. A
varied and interesting program has been
arrranged, and all those taking part in the
different uumlers are bending all their
energies to make tbe aflair a success. A
dance will follow the entertain meat, the
one ticket admitting to both. It is doubt
ful whether so much in the way of e nter
tainment has ever been given before in
The purpose for which the entertain
ment is being given is one that should
appeal to every one who has the improve
ment and beautification of the town at
heart. Honolulu has followed the ex
ample set by other cities, and is getting
together for the beautification of the city.
Hilo should do the same, and the success
of this entertainment will demonstrate
whether or not thr people wilt back up
an effort to improve the city.

The investigation of Road Supervisor
N. K. Lyman by Supervisors Molr and
Deshn, occurred according to schedule
Saturday. Deputy County Atlofiiey Aluli
assisted in the case and Attorney Carl
Smith was on hand iu the interests of
Mr. Cabrinha, who had been drawn into
the controversy by Mr. Lyman in his re
ply to the charges. Mr. Ryan, who asked
the Board to investigate was on hand, full
to the brim with suspicion and, as he
claimed, evidence. The charges were
read to Mr. Lyman. Asked by Chairman
Molr if they were true, he staled that bo
far as having received the assignments
was concerned, they were true; but as to
the rest, they were not true. Mr. Ryan
was asked if he had been defrauded by
the means claimed. Not having been,
he was advised that if he or any of his
friends had been, and would bring in de
finite charges the case would Ik: investi
gated. It was ruled that there was noth
ing before the meeting that cotdd be
considered, nud strongly Intimated that
the time of the Board was being foolishly
wasted. In reply to nn inquiry, Attorney
Carl Smith was informed that the Cabri
nha matter would not be considered by
the Suporvisors, as the courts were open
for the disposal ol liquor selling cases.

Chance For Tobacco Company.
A tobacco company composed of Hono

months ago to cultivate tobacco on a
commercial basis, being satisfied with the
showing made at Hamakua in the cul
tivation of tobacco at the experiment
station there under the supervision of
Jared G. Smith, special agent in charge-
of the Honolulu Experiment Station.
Such lands suitable for the cultivation of
tobacco, coffee and other agricultural
products are advertised for sale by the
Territorial Land office at ia o'clock, noon,

Attempted to Escape.
A Korean, Ungec Talk Su, who had
served out to days of a four months' term,
escaped from the road gnug at work
inauka of the Volcano road, on Friday.
Deputy Sheriff Fetter, who happened to
be in the vicinity, learning of the escape,
notified Jailer Maby, and, while it is
Territorial and not police business, men
from the Sheriff's office were sent in pur
suit. The fugitive made his way through
the cane to camp No. 5, Walaken, com
posed of Koreans, where he was harbored
for tbe night nud given clothing. He
was captured by Captain Coleman, who
was lying in wait for him, up iu Olaa,
Saturday morning, on the Volcano road.
Warrants were promptly issued for the
arrest of the Koreans who harbored him.
To Kvcn the Score.
Two Japanese were arrested Friday
charged with larceny, the same having
been found removlug goods from
Hamada's store. One of the men justified
himself iu so doing from the fact that
Hamada had "skipped" owing him; and
the other, from the fact that Hamada
owed every body else. They were help
ing themselves to the best the store
afforded, which articles arc now iu the
sheriff's possession. On Saturday Jos.
Vierra punched a harness Hamada had
borrowed of him a few weeks ago and
sold to another ap, a day before he
sailed for Seattle.
