FfitTIT OKOWING AND PEE
BEliVINO. Some few weeks since, the Bclix
tiv had some thoughts, editorially
expressed, mi the advisability of our
Making some effort for tlio develop
ment of the agricultural resources of
the country, other limn production
simply of sugar mid rice, aud
pointed generally to the fact that
tlieie are very many articles that
ore easily grown here Mid which
yield abundantly, but to the utilizing
of which scarcely any attention is
now paid. We now nolo with pleas
ure that the lion. Mr. 1'ilipo, Re
presentative from North Kona, lias
apparently adopted similar views) ou
this subject, and has brought in a
bill entitled " An Act for the en
couragement of Agriculture." It
appropriates the modest sum of
three thousand dollars for the bien
nial period, with which tho Minister
of the Interior is to import for gra
tuitous distribution, new and valuable
varieties of fruits, cither the seeds
or growing plants. Hut a more
business-like feature of the bill, is
the authority given the Minister to
financially aid individuals or corpo
rations in the establishment of
factories for the preservation mid
preparation of fruits for export, nud
for the packing and pressing of
tobacco. It is well-known that the
district, which Mr. Pilipo represents
is quite unfit for sugar growing on u
large scale, owing to the rocky
nature of the soil, but that what coil
there, is, being decomposed lava, is
remarkably rich, and all kinds of
tropical fruits grow there with extra
ordinary luxuriance. The delicious
pine-apple is found growing wild all
over, the district, Mid scarcely a
fraction of the fruit is ever used,
but rots on the ground. We under
stand however, that recently a com
pany of foreigners has commenced
the canning of pine-apples in Kona,
and in fact we have tasted some of
their productions and find them ex
cellent. (Messrs. Holies & Co. of
this city have, the Agency of the
Company.) There is the mountain
wild strawberry; a species of rasp
berry; tho gooseberry (puhn), aud
the ohclo. The chirimoya also
grows freely in Kona, but it will
baldly bear canning, except pciliaps
as a jelly. In short, there arc very
many articles of produce that may
yet become available,, to supplement
Rings sugar and rice.
By an oversight, wo omitted to
mention in Saturday's issue, that on
the previous evening, (the Bastille
Anniversary) Mons. Feer, the
French Commissioner and Madame
Feer, entertained a party of invited
guests at their residence on Bere
tania street. His Majesty the King
.honored the party with hie presence,
as did Her Majesty the Queen
Dowager Kimnn, and II. Jl. H. the
Princess Likclike. Tho front of the
mansion was beautifully ornamented
with colored lanterns, the red, white
aud blue, and presented a brilliant

Xr, !- mer Triumph left for San
Saturday, July lf. This was ap
parently an off day, for no business
of importance was done. A few
pointless resolutions and inconclu
sive reports of committees took up
the first hour. Then there was u re
port of a committee upon the peti
tion of one Ilaalou, for balance due
as a mail carrier on Oalnt. This
Ilaalou may be termed " the irre
pressible," for he has now been
with his petition before four conse
cutive Legislatures, from each of
which ho has met with a tebuff, but
ho won't stuy rebuffed. Mr. Kaulu
kou, chairman of the committee,
stated that they had thoroughly ex
amined into thu man's case, aud
were convinced, from his own state
ment, that he had received from the
Postmaster-General all he had bar
gained for, and tharefore they re
commended to indefinitely postpone
consideration of his petition. Thcte
upon arose n lengthy debate, some
of the members arguing that the
fact that Holou was sojvery persis
tent in coming before successive
Legislatures was presumptive evi
dence of the justice of his claim
which amounts to only $45. It was
therefore moved to insert the
amount in the. bill, despite tho com
mittee's icport. After an hour spent
in discussion, the motion to imlcii
nitoly postpone was carried, and so
exit Mr. Ilaalou for another two
Among the novelties, Mr. Kaulu
kou gave notice of his intention to
bring in a bill requiring plantation
owners to have the photographs tak
en of all Chinese employees, in order
to their identification in caBe they
desert. Not a bad idea ; although it
must be remembered that any ordi
nary two Chinamen are in general
appearance, " as like as two peas."
