PROSPECTIVE RETURNS OF THE COLO
A communicated article in a con
temporary presents some of the
sources of profit to investors, and
advantages to settlers, held in pros
pect by the promoters of the "Ha
waiian Colonization, Laud and
Trust Company." For the inform
ation of our readers we summarize
the leading facts. The Honouliuli
territory, of which the company has
the refusal, contains 17,000 acres of
land suitable for growing sugar
cane. Of this amount 7,000 acres
are comprised in a plain requiring
artificial irrigation. To effect that
object artesian wells arc proposed
for the portion lying at an elevation
not exceeding thirty-live feet above
sea-level, and a series of dams, in a
natural gulch, for higher levels.
Both means arc proved feasible be
yond any reasonable doubt, by the
complete succe&s attending their
adoption, under similar conditions
and in contiguous areas. Their
estimated cost, for this company's
purpose, is $125,000. When the
land is furnished with watering
facilities, it is assumed that at least
.from 2,500 to 5,000 acres will be
occupied by responsible cultivators
of sugar cane. The cane would be
raised on shares, in the proportion
of, say, live-eighths to the planter
and three-eighths to the company.
Milling facilities, with transportation
of cane to mill and sugar to place of
shipment, should be provided by the
company, while the planters should
do the harvesting and loading. Four
tons to the acre is the very lowest
estimate of the soil's productive
ness, but experience dictates a
higher figure by two or three tons.
Taking the smallest amount of both
land and yield, however, we have
2,500 acres producing an aggregate
of 10,000 tons of sugar. Of this
the company's share would be 3,
750 tons, worth, at present valuo,
$375,000 net. As to the cost of
accomplishing the result just given,
the author of the article herein
drawn upon presents the following
Cost of 30-ton mill, say fcino.OOO
Cost water Mipply for mills and
Cost tramway and caiv for trans
porting cane ami Migar, ay.. 25,000
Total estimated outlay fcUOO.OOO
On this estimated outlay of 81100,-
000, which, he explains, is a liberal
one, the following reductions are
Interest at It percent $"27,000
Wear ami tear on mill and
tramway, and lepulns to dams,
Current expensed, taxes, Insur
Total annual expense $1110,000
Ultimate results are thus deduced
from these figures: "If this amount
for annual outlay under every legit
imate head of expenditure be de
ducted from 81575,000, the value of
a season's sugar crop, there is left
a balance of 215,000 and interest
of J) percent on investment. This
is calculated ou the bush of existing
prices. But suppose that tho price
of sugar should drop 10 per cent. ,
or 3 cents per pound, as an extreme
limit, which is very unlikely, there
would be $150,000 (o write off the
value of the sugar crop, reducing
the $375,000 estimate to 225,000.
Now, deducting from this sum of
$225,000 the estimated expenditure
of $130,000, there would remain a
net profit of $05,000 and interest nt
!l per cent, on the investment.
making a total income on the in
vestment of $122,000 per annum."
It is nsscrtcd that most, if not nil,
of the ten thousand acres to be de
voted to colonization is good rich
soil. Extending from Pearl harbor
to the foothills of the Waianac
mountains, the area gradually
reaches an elevation of about 1,000
feet. A large proportion of the land
may bo irrigated by storing water as
above mentioned, but, besides that
recourse and artesian wells, water is
obtainable at ninny points .from
springs and similar favors of nature.
Being in the most elevated region of
Oahu, the rainfall of the area is
very large, and it is anticipated,
upon the strength of wcllknown
natural law, that, once under culti
vation, more humid conditions still
would be induced.
Already over forty applications
for lands have been received by the
provisional company, the aggregate
amount applied for exceeding two
thousand acres. The applicants,
some of whom are long residents in
the country, are confident of being
able to make a fair living from pro
ducts they can raise for even the
local market. By raising sugar on
shares with the company, the owner
of live acres, it is estimated, is as
sured of a net income of from $ 1 ,
000 to $1,500 a year, besides minor
sources of living that an agricul
tural holding affords. This would,
indeed, be a princely existence to
many millions of ncoplc throughout
the globe, "who," as the corres
pondent says, "toil unceasingly six
months of the year to exist the re
Besides the foregoing inducements
to settlers, it is intimated that per
sons disposed to engage in stock
raising can be accommodated with
lands of the company, by purchase
or lease, with the opportunity of
buying a high class of stock now
subsisting on the property. The
company would even "cut up and
dispose ol the whole property on
very favorable terms to a desirable
class of bonafidc settlers."
AN OLD BEAVER.
The first steamer to plow Pacific
waters was advertised to be sold at
Victoria, B. C. , a few days ago. The
old craft was named the Beaver, and
was built in England in 1831 for the
Hudson Bay Company. She came
over under sail. She was built for
coast trade and carrying supplies to
trading posts on Vancouver Island
and Frazer river, and often did good
relieving service for both British
and Americans in the Indian wars.
