Inter-Islniwl S. N. Co. Send Agent
For Latest and Host Ideas.
The Inter-Island S. N. Co. is
determined to place the service on
its vessels on a par with the best
running to ports on the American
continent and in order that infor
mation as to the ways on other
vessels and in other companies may
be obtained by the other company,
President Kennedy and the board
of directors have decided to send
C. L. Wight as a special agent with
instructions to go where he can
find the best, and report as he gets
what is worth finding out.
Mr. Wight has been connected
with the Island steamboat interests
for the past twelve years and the
company uas selected him as its
agent believing him to be the best
man in the service of the company
for that purpose.
HANDLING ISLAND FRUITS.
"I leave on Wednesday, in the
Alameda," said Mr. Wight and I
have carte blanche to go where I
think new features are to be found.
The commission is a roving one
and it is my intention to go direct
to Cuba. My stay there is inde
finite for I want to look into every
phase of steamer travel and manage
ment of the boat while curoute.
I want to learn, also, the methods
of handling bananas and pineapples
for I am of the opinion that we
will see the cultivation of pines
the second industry in the Territory;
I want to learn how the fresh fruit
is handled and I want to get on the
inside of the shipping of bananas.
It may that some of the troubles of
the growers on the big island will
be eliminated after we get our boat
m service, mom uuoa 1 win
probably proceed to the Mexican
ports and look into the steamer
management along that route and
then I will go through the United
States and Canada with the same
object in view.
" My investigations will include
the handling and the stowage of
freight; if there are new and more
mordern appliances for the more
rapid handling of cargo I will find
them and report upon them and
you can depend upon it if it will
be for the improvement of the
service of the Inter-Island Company
they will adopted. Some people
object at first glance to our way of
handling freight and passengers at
some of the ports on Hawaii.
Well, if I can find a better method
in any of the Mexican ports I
will report upon them. The com
pany wants to improve its service
in every particular and the man
agement is sending me off to find
the way. The majority of the
people who travel on our steamers
are of limited experience in this
respect and they hear people from
mainland drawing comparisons,
with lines over there. The com
pany wants to have its service so
that the comparisons, if they are
necessary, will be favorable and we
hope, too. that the favor will be
altogether on the side of our ser
vice. Do not understand that we are
chasing the tourist trade principally
for that is not the case; we want
first to please those with whom we
do nearly all of our business, the
island people. We want them to
feel that the company is going to
give them the best obtainable, we
want them to realize that it is wide
awake, enterprising and not afraid
to spend money in looking for what
will bring them the comfort they
hear other people talking about.
A ltomedy Unit Is Truly Mugleul lu
Its rower to Relieve Pain.
Nr. Lewis Rozario, Manager of
Madras Co-op. Stores, of Madras,
India, says: "I certainly think
Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and
Diarrhoea Remedy is one of the
best medicines made. I had been
suffering from an attack of colic and
after trying a couple of prescrip
tions without relief, a friend sug
gested that I take Chamberlain's
Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea
Remedy. I did so and the result
was truly magical for it gave me
immediate relief. About tbat
time several of my staff were
attacked in a like manner and out
of this same bottle I cured tbem
all." For sale by Hilo Drug Co,
ANOTHER ItUIMIKIt COMPANY.
A (Ironing Industry In the Islands.
Faith in the islands as a section
of the world for the producing of
rubber is growing and there is now
a second corporation to operate the
lands at Nahiku in the cultivation
of rubber trees. The Hawaiian
American Rubber Co., capital 80,-
000, filed its papers yest.'rday. The
company has 520 acres of land at
Nahiku, Maui, nnd contemplates
taking in some that has been drop
ped by the homesteaders in that
vicinity. Much of the land adjoins
that of Nahiku Company, but it is
all below the government road, at
an elevation of less than 900 feet.
The incorporators have taken over
a number of individual holdings
and now have 7000 trees growing.
They range from seedlings to a
height of twenty feet, and 4000 are
a year old. They have been stor
ing seeds until now they have 40,
000 already sprouted. It is believed
that for rapid growth the trees on
the lower elevation, where the
lands of this new company are
located, have advantages over the
upper lands. It is expected that
by January next there will be
150,000 trees in the ground.
Thielen and Williamson, who
have financed the proposition, have
already ordered 240,000 seeds of
the Hevca and Ceara trees, varieties
that have been highly recommended
by rubber experts for the soil in
this Territory. He says he believes
there is land in some of the gulches
on Hawaii that will produce the
finest grade of rubber with proper
attention. Dr. A. B. Clarke, who
returned from Hawaii a week or
two ago, showed a sample of rub
ber weighing four ounces which he
had secured from one of the old
trees In the Hilo Hotel grounds
Mr. Williamson shows a piece -of
rubber weighing several ounces that
was produced by a tree at Nahiku
less b.qn two years old. The pro
spectus of the Hawaiian-American
Co. will be issued at once and Mr.
Williamson says the stock will all
be taken up within thirty days.
