THERE IS ROOM FOR A SUGAR
MILL IN HONOLULU.
The non-success of past attempts
to establish a sugar mill in the dis
trict of Honolulu, alluded to in oui
last issue, cannot bo lightly icgard
cd as evidence of the impractic
ability of the scheme. Wo arc of
opinion that the idea was a good one
"when first originated, and that it is
jCqually good now; that the piojcct
was perfectly feasible at that time,
and that it is none the less ho now ;
"that tlicro was then opening for an
enterprise of the kind, and that the
opening lias never einco been closed
in fact. 1ms gradually cnlaigcd,
so that now theic is a better chance
of success than at any previous
In the first place, land is abund
'lint. In a radius of two miles fiom
the centre of Honolulu theic aic
hundreds of acres of unoccupied and
unculthatcd lands, owned by all
.classes and nationalities of our
mixed community. Many of these
lands arc not suitable for banana
raising, and otheis have not a 'sufll
ciency of water for tato planting ;
(but most of them are well adapted
to cane culture, and have a sufficient
.water supply for that purpose. On
(the authority of a practical and in
telligent farmer, -who has gone
around the distiict in order to pro
cure the information, we aic able to
'Btato that more than five hundred
acres of suitable and available land
lies within the limits above named.
- We also have good icason for
saying that there is now bettor pros
pect of seeming tho co-operation of
Bmall farmers than formerly. TUmiy,
if not nil, of those who so ignomini
ously backed out of tho last move
have long been convinced of their
mistake and continuo to bewail their
Bhort-sightedncss. Beside these,
many others have fallen itito the
same line of thought, and would be
too glad to plant their small plots
with cane, if they saw any chance of
getting it convci ted into sugar.
' The superior "advantages which
the district of Honolulu has of trans
porting cane to tho mill is an im
portant fact in favor of the venture.
Had as our roads aic, and they aic
admitted to be shamefully bad for
tho metropolis of a Kingdom, they
are far ahead of those of a majoiity
of tho plantations in the countiy.
IIcrc we would require no cosily
illumes nor expensive w it o tramways.
The matte. of hauling the cane a
mile or two in wagons would bo easy
and the cost comparatively light.
" Another and considerable advan
tage is the saving of freight charges.
All the plantations in the country
districts of this island, and most of
'those on the other islands, get their
machinery, coal, lumber, and other
.supplies from Honolulu. Then the'y
have to send their sugar hero to be
transhipped for export abroad. fTlie
freight botli'ways forms a big item
6f expense. All this would be saved
?to a mill in this distiict, thus making
tho profits propoitionably greater.
, n Next comes the question, in what
way could tho cntcipilsc bostaitcd
with the best chances of success?
yfja suggest the formation of a
co-operntivo joint-stock coinnnfly,
With a nominal capital, say, of fifty
thousand dollars, divided into one
thousand shaves of fifty dollars
each. Every cultivator, or intend-1
ing 'cultivator, should have an op
poitunity of purchasing shares. Tho
,milb company, as a company, should
not bo planters; bti individual
members of tho company would
plant tho ' cane and furnish it'to the
mill; to bo ground on equitable
terms. Will somo man of energy
step forwaid and take the matter in
Wo read) n shoit timo ago, in ono
of our local papers, something about
sensational journalism being on the'
decline in Amoiica. Woll, if it is
"on the decline" there, it is "on
tho revival" hcic. Or if "sensa
tional" journalism is not reviving iii
this countiy, wo have recently been
heated to a class of journalism that
Can only be piopcily qualified by
somo strong adjective. One editor
lefening to another editor, calls him
" a disappointed, conceited, scurvy
politician." An honorable man may
be " disappointed," or "conceited,"
or botli ; but " tcui vy " is a loath
some epithet to apply to any man.
It may hardly be coricct to desig
nate this "sensational" journalism,
but no ono will deny that it is
" blackguaul " journalism. And if
we .110 allowed our choice, we picfer
" tcnsalionalisin " to " blnckguaid
ism" an' day .and every day.
