A r.iiANi) chance for investment in

estate, one of the most centrally
situated nnd advantageous proper
ties in the city, is offered at auction,
nt upset prices, by Messrs. O. W.
Maefarlanc & Co. Doubtless there
will be many, in after years, to
regret either the want of means or
the neglect of the opportunity, to
have secured a portion of this pro
perty. A more extended reference
to the estate will be made later.

A HAND OFF.
A native named Win. Bull met
with a very distressing and severe
accident, this forenoon, by which
he will likely be deprived of his
left hand. He had been at work
attending a planing inachino in the
establishment of the Hawaiian Car
riage Manufacturing Company, his
pait of the work being to put a
hand on the end of every piece of
lumber passing over the planer, to
assist tho workman at the opposite
end of the table to steady tho piece,
and when planed to take it off the
table. The job is a perfectly safe
one, as theic is no necessity to touch
the lumber until it has passed the
planing knife ; but Bull had placed
his hand on the end of the piece of
wood just as it was up to tho knife,
when his hand slipped and was
caught by tho revolving blades of tho
machine. The fingers and the fore
part of tho hand were instantane
ously planed off. The sufferer was
removed to tho Queen's Hospital.
FIRE THIS MORNINC.
A lire started about seven o'clock
this morning on Merchant street,
eloso to the coiner of Fort street,
which, had it gained headway, would
undoubtedly have developed into dis
astious proportions. It occurred in
a heap of empty boxes, waste paper
and other shop lefuse, carelessly
left lying in a nanow space between
tho corner building, at present occu
pied by Mr. Geo. llolloway, harness
maker, and the next building, occu
pied by Mr. J. W. Lunlng, collector.
It is supposed that some smoker
caiclessly threw a lighted cigar
stump over the fence from the
stvoot, which caught in tho Inflatn.
niulilo material, and that binned up
briskly, setting fire to the buildings !
on both sides. An alarm was given, (
out ociorc cue ungade arrived wot le
mon from nn adjoining yard had
quenched tho flames with water
brought in buckets. Tho walls of
tho buildings arc charred half
through the clapboarding, and
blackened three-fourths of their
height. The buildings are tho pro
perty of Chief Justico Judd. It
appeals that the very susceptible
priming for the fire was comprised
of tho clearings of the O. P. M.
Bazar, lately closed out In bank
ruptcy, hastily pitched out to mako
room for the now tenant. The inci
dent indicates tho advisability of the
Fire Marshal taking a peep into
vacant lots occasionally to sec that
property is not subjected to un
WAIMANALO PLANTATION AND MILL.
It may interest some of your
numerous readers to see a descrip
tion of n sugar plantation and mill
by n non-expert, who simply viewed
tilings with an cyo to the pleasure
and instruction derived from them.
It is willi this viow that I present
tho following account of Waimanalo
Sugar Plantation and Mill to you.
Leaving tho foot of tho Pali the
road proceeds more and more south
erly over a succession of hills and
dales sulllciontly picturesque to
please the eye, but ratherjaggravat
ing to the traveller who desires to
speed ills horse and make good time
on his journey. Very soon the
peculiar peak of Olomana shows up
nnd gives the wayfarer something
to exercise his ingenuity in con
jecturing how it came there. Every
few yards the journey seems to bo
nearly at an end, but yet another
hill has to be surmounted and
another gulch crossed, till at last
you stand on the top of Kcaniani
(The glass), and the beautiful
panorama of Waimanalo bursts
suddenly upon the view. To the
right the most pcipcndicular moun
tain on this island ending in a group
of rock islands out to sea, and to
tho left the twin peaks of Olomana
terminated by the island of Moku
ieia, celebrated as the only breeding
place for plover in the group. To
the center, almost at the foot of the
observer, lies Pua Alii (the royal
flower), the residence of Mr. J. A.
Cummins and the scat of the sugar
mill, surrounded by a cluster of
neat houses, and acre on acre of
waving sugar cane, stretching down
to the white sandy beach on which
tho Pacific breaks with its never
Going gently down the pali which
lies at the spectator's feet one
reaches the old residence of Mr.
Cummins, in which ho spent over
30 years of his life, while managing
the estate as a cattle ranch. Here
no less than five of the Hawaiian
monarchs have been entertained
from time to time. Another stretch
of about half a mile brings us to the
mill and the homestead. After
partaking of refreshments and pro
viding for tho animals, we are in
vited to step through the mill and
see the process of sugar manufac
ture. First are to be seen leng lines
of cars laden with sugar cane,
standing on tho rails ready to be
run up to the feeder of tho mill as
fast as required. I he feeder of tho
mill is an endless band covered
horizontally with wooden slats and
passing between two wooden slats
so as to form an oblong box with
a continually traveling floor. Beside
it stand several hands, chopping the
cane so as to make it lie snugly and
feed evenly to the rollers, of which
there are three, tho upper a four
ton and the lower ones three tons
each. These rollers crush the stalks
of the cane so finely and thoroughly
that nothing is left but a fine stringy
substance in small lumps, technic
ally known us trash, and tho juice.
The trash passes up on another end
less band direct to the furnaces and
tho trash house; while the pale
green colored frothing liquid known
as tho juice passes on to a strainer
and then is pumped up to the clari
fiers, and then to the cleansing pan
whero it is constantly skimmed and
then through another strainer. AH
of these processes are needed to rc
movo such constituent parts and
foreign substances as would inter
fere with its conversion into tho
finest sugar. From tho strainer it
passes to the double effect, which is
the name given to two large boilers
having steam tubes nsido where the
juice is boiled a first time. From
these it passes down to the coolers
large tanks where it is cooled
off, and then again goes up to the
vacuum pan another largo boiler
having three steam coils inside, and
from thence to tho mixer. The
juice has now become dark, block,1
grainy nnd very adhesive. Here,
after being thoroughly turned over
by a revolving set of spokes in tho
mixer, it is run off into tho centri
fugals a set of four rapidly revolv
ing tubs having their axle in tho
centre and in a very short while
the beautiful pale amber No. 1
sugar is rim out into tho sugar
rooms and there put up in bags.
Kvery economy is practised in tho
manufacture, utid tho skimmings
from the cleaning pans, etc., are run
into two tanks, whero stenvn Is ad
mitted from Mow and presoes It
upwards. The dirt and refuse
forming a hard cake is run off into
the river, while the juice tints ex
tracted is urn off into the double
effect and 300 pounds of sugar is
thus gained per day.
The mill, though only a ten ton
mill, has averaged over 11 tons a
day for tho last year, and during
that time has only stopped working
for six days, turning out about
3,300 tons of sugar. The highest
number of claiifiers of 500 gallons
each of sugar cine juice in any ono
day has been 11, and tho lowest
has been 30. Thus somo days the
turn out has been about 18 tons.
There are tlueo grades of sugar
manufactured, and the remaining
juice, after grade number three has
been extracted, is run into n tank
and there lies for u year, from which
about 10 tons more of sugar is made
at the end of that time.
Kvery where throughout the mill
tho compactness of tho various pints,
and tho case with which every pait
can bo seen rapidly by one man
without leaving his post, shows that
great judgment must have been used
in its erection, and every caro lias
been taken to provide for all possi
ble accidents, a car over the machi
nery being provided to rapidly run
off any part which may break down
nnd have it placed on the cars out
side and i nn down to the steamer to
bo shipped to Honolulu. Every
thing throughout the mill is beauti
fully clean and neat, reminding one
of nothing so much as-a man-of-war
cleaned and prepared for visitors,
and yet this is its ordinary woiking
condition. Order and discipline
Outside are tho furnaces on the
leeward side. The Jarvis furnaco is
used here, and the green nnd dry
trash and cano tops mixed together
nro fed to the furnace, but in wet
weather coal has to be used. An
immenso brick chimney, 100 ft. 9
in. high, erected in 1871), carries off
the smoke, and a double flue has
been built so that in case of acci
dent work may be cairicdon without
delay. Trash houses and sheds
occupy considerable space on this
side, but at present arc rather
empty. Beside the sugar room is
the machine loom and the machine
shop, well-equipped with lathe, diill
press, vice, and the necessary tools
for working. Here also is a donkey
engine for pumping water to four
large water tanks, holding 3,000
gallons of water. The locomotive
house comes next, whciein are kept
tho two engines used for hauling
the cars, each being used week
about. Throughout the whole mill
and appurtenance the systematic
orderliness strikes one as a promi
nent feature in the management.
Within easy distance of the mill
arc the quarters for the olllcers and
men employed. These arc kept
wonderfully clean and tidy, and
every care is taken to mako them
comfortable. On visiting the mess
room wo found it well-filled nnd
clean, and a splendid dinner of
fresh beef, soup, vegetables, bread,
butter, tea and coffee provided.
Regular meal hours arc established,
and the various classes of workmen
have each their own table.
A run was then taken round the
1,200 acres of cano that composes
the plantation, first in a break and
then on tho cars. There are nine
miles of track (English and German
steel) including the portable track,
solidly and well-laid on wooden
sleepers, and tho grades vary fiom
two and four feet in tho hundred to
nine feet. The speed attained is
greatest on tho line to tho wharf, a
distance of two and a quarter miles,
which is reached in six minutes witli
a load on, and tho lcturu journey
occupies seven minutes. Covered
cats are used for taking tho sugar
down to the wharf in case of rain.
The average yield from the fields is
3A to four tons of sugar per acre.
The mill buildings are of iron and
therefore there is no fear of fire.
One noticeable fcaturo around the
plantation was the uniform polite
ness nnd civility of tho men em
ployed. None of the hands arc
shipped. All are free to come and
go as they please, without having
rccourso to a court of law to noiu
them to tiieir engagements. Theio
are probably. 430 inhabitants all told
in Waimanalo, natives, foreigners
and Chinamen, and tho latter are in
tho majority. Tho place is well
watered, having four springs nnd a
running stream. There is also an
artesian well, which docs not flow
but requires to be pumped.
Every whero throughout the plan
tation and mill the same cleanliness,
neatness, orderliness and discipline
is observable, and reflects tho
greatest credit on the management.
Our thanks nro duo to Mr. J. A.
Cummins the manager, and to Mr.
Martin thu engineer, for their cour
tesy in explaining matters of detail

Valuable Real Estate

For Sale by Private Contract or at Pole Auction.
The undersigned havo received Instructions from Messrs. O. W. Mac
fnrlane fc Co. to oiler for sale at miction, at our salesrooms, on
MONDAY, JANUARY 25th,
At 1J3 O'clock, Noon,
Unless previously disposed of by private Sale,
The whole of th.it aluuble city property known as the BOOTH ESTATE,
o.rcptiiig only the corner lot, owned by Mr. James Olds, containing In nil
120,1)110 square feet, together with house?, stores and buildings thereto be
longing. This Is the most compact and desirable piece of property ever offered
for sale In Honolulu. Its main frontages are 75 feet 5 inches to Nuuanu
street, and Oil feet 0 Inches to Hotel street. The rear front of the property
extends from Ntiuanu street, back of Messrs. C.istle & Cooke's fine brick
fcarchoiro and store, 17ti feel 11 Inches to Hose Lane, the sldo frontage
along the line of the llobluson lot to Hotel street being 142 feet S Inches.
The value of this and the ndjolnlng property might bo grently en.
lianccd by carrying Hose Lane straight through to Hotel street. Access Is
hail to Hotel and Nuiiatm streets fiom the rear and center of the estate by
lanes long In use on the property Itself.
Situated in thu heart of the retail business quarter of the city, and
having a large area of mailable building space unoccupied, this property
holds out unusual Inducements to capitalists as a permanent investment.
The present annual Invcitiiienl is $1,600, or 10 per cent, on $45,000; but ns
the luiucs expire shortly, the rental might he increased to $0,000 a year
without expenditure for repairs or additions to buildings. If tl'u estato
were sold as a whole, however, by judicious and Inexpensive Improve
ments which a practleal eye would suggest, even this large prospective in
come might be very considerably added to.
Tho Nuiianu street frontage is occupied by a row of two-story build.
Ings, tho upper story being used as dwellings, nnd the first Moot ns stores,
which aro ulw ays In occupation. Restaurants and retail stores similarly
occupy the frontage on Hotel street.
Tho old International Hotel Is In the center of the property, and goes
with the lot. It is used as a lodging house and pays handsomely.
Another advantage of this lino property ns an investment is its excel
lent sanitary conditions. It is on tho highest part of the city, inaKai of
licretanla street, and is therefore easily drained.
The properly, if not disposed of before date of snle, will be first put up
ns a whole in one lot. Falling n satisfactory purchaser, we shall then put
it up in lots, for which purpose It has been subdivided into sixteen lots.
We shall oiler these lots at the following upset prices, viz:
