AITIOE TO COFFEE (MOWERS.
Or(rn,nlatlon ami AitrprtlMurc Ho
Jnred G. Smith, who recently re
turned from Washington, D. C,
said in reference to the prospects of
getting aid for the coffee industry,
which was the object of his trip:
" A good deal ol interest is mani
fested over Hawaiian matters. Any
measures that are proposed which
would be liable to improve th.e
farming population of Hawaii or
that would be liable to send more
white voters here is sure of con
sideration by Congress and the Pre
sident. I believe the best way to
obtain what we want in the way of
a tariff ou coffee is the starting of
the coffee industry on a large scale
then demanding a tariff. Many of
the Congressmen now do not know
that Hawaii raises coffee.
"I think that a good beginning
has been made. The President is
interested. Many reports have bceu
made on the conditions here on the
islands but very few recommenda
tions have been made. Any legis
lation that will improve economic
conditions here must of a necessity
be constructive in nature and must
be given time.
" A tariff on coffee would un
doubtedly bring great improve
ments here. The largest argument
against the plan is that both Porto
Rico and Hnwaii combined produce
only a small amount of the coffee
consumed in the United States.
Each year there is something like
1,000,000,000 pounds of coffee con
sumed in the States. Of this Ha
waii and Porto Rico only furnish
20,000,000 pounds. People know
very little about Hawaiian and
Porto Rican coffee on the mainland.
It would be foolish to look for radi
cal legislation that would affect any
of the established interests. Im
provements here must be gradual.
"I think that the coffee growers
here could not do better than to
form an association and collect
evidence and then whenever Con
gress does take up the subject of
tariff revision they can send a dele
gation to Washington to make the
fight for what they want. They
should also try and interest people
on the mainland in Hawaiian coffee.
It is little known beyond t,he Pacific
coast. They should follow the ex
ample the Porto Ricans. Those
growers keep the White House sup
plied with their coffee. They dis
tribute over a ton of reading matter
there ea,ch year in regard to their
industry. Why, the chairmau of
the committee on agriculture did
not know that Hawaii raised coffee
at all. The Porto Ricans are dif
ferent altogether. They at least
let the congressmen and the men at
(he head of the government know
that they raise coffee."
Found Idol Uurlod lu Siuttl.
A stone image of the Hawaiian
god Kane, in a remarkably good
State of preservation, was dug up
a short distauce from the beach at
Cawaihae last week by a native
who was engaged in remodeling
his house. There are a number of
stone houses there, some of them
qf great antiquity, and it seems
probable that there has also been a
temple there at sp,me time or other.

The committee on cooperative
matketing of the Partners' Institute
lifts been continued in office, with
instructions to effect a combination
atnonc the pineapple growers of
Hawaii in particular, which shall
agree not to ship any island fruit
on consignment, and shall keep the
prices at which the product shall
be sold in the control of the pro
'duccr. This action was atken at a
meeting of the Institute held in
Honolulu on May 12 called especial
ly to consider the subject of co
operative marketing. The com
mittee that is to effect the organi
zation consists of Byron O. Clark,
John Eminelntb, James D. Dole,
R. H. Trent and Mr. Eames.

ing, which was held at the rooms

General discussion, approving
co-operation and the reaching out
for a market, was participated in, a
potion was carried that a committee
of five be retained with orders to go
ahead and effect a combination to
control the market of the next
year's crop of pineapples. The
organization of these is expected to
be follpwcd by organization and co
operation along broader lines, so
that in time the island growers of
tropical and sub-tropical products
will reach and regulate the immense
Mainland markets which, as yet,
have hardly been touched for both
fresh and prepared fruit products.
It was brought out, after the dis
cussion, tuatj. ii. niggins win go
to the Mainland within the next
two wqeks to study market condi
tions with reference to pineapples
and bananas particularly, to find
out why fruit shipped does not ai-
rive in good order, to see whether
prices cannot b: improved, and to
make the experiment of shipping a
carload of bananas, pineapples, alli-
gatpr pears and mangoes from San
Francisco straight through to New
