ANNUAL Mr.UTINO 01? Till:
The annual meeting of tlio Plant
er's Labor and Supply Company
opened a few minutes after 10
o'clock this morning in their rooms,
Campbell's block, President II. P.
Baldwin in the chair.
The roll was called by the Secre
tary Hon. W. 0. Smith, when it was
found that 12,440 shares were" repre
sented out of 15,195.
The minutes of the last annual
meeting having been published in
full in Abe Planter's Monthly, wcro
not read. The Secretary read the
minutes of two trustees' meetings :
one held Way 2d, 1888, to meet a
delegation of the Anti-Asiatic Union,
tho other on September 2th, to
make arrangements for tho annual
Col. Z. S. Spalding moved the
election of ofilcers be proceeded
with, and after that they adjourn to
some hour to discuss tho condition
of the company and take such action
as might be found necessary, in ac
cordance with a resolution adopted
one. year ago aud which was referred
to a committee. Tho latter lie
thought would be able to make a re
port. As this mutter was 'entirely
concerning the interests of the com
pany, he moved ihe session be an
executive one. The motion was
President Baldwin thought they
might just as well go on with busi
ness until noon, as no doubt there
were reports to be read.
Col. Z. R. Spalding said he had
put. on paper the result of experi
ments made by him since the last
meeting. It explained tho methods
employed in the manufacture of
sugar, the technical terms used, aud
would give non-professionals inte
rested in the manufacture a better
knowledge of the reports read at
these meetings. People had said to
him they would like to read the re
ports if they could understand
them. He would like to have as
many present of those interested in
the manufacture of sugar, when his
report was read.
President Baldwin thought it was
a very good idea to ask outsiders to
hear the report.
Col. Spalding said there was a
great many things, put into the
Planter's Monthly that non-professionals
did not understand. He
moved that the rules be suspended
and the Board of Trustees be re
elected for the, ensuing year.
Secretary Smith moved as an
amendment that Robt. Ilalstead be
appointed in place of J. M. Lidgate
who did not wish to serve.
Both motions were carried. The
Board of Trustees is as follows : II.
P. Baldwin, H. F. Glade, P. C.
Jones, J. B, Atherton, W. O. Smith,
C. M. Cooke, Z. S. Spalding, Robt.

Mr. B. F. Dillingham next read a
paper on live stock. It contained
interesting statistics showing the im-
. ports of live stock, hay, grain, etc.
The committee think that a great
deal of cash has been sent out of
the country for stock inferior to that
raised here. The imports of live
stock during the ten years, 1878 to
1887,'amounted td $83t,08G.G9. Of
this amount $1G8,928.9G, nearly
one-fifth of the whole, was for hogs.
An excellent substitute for imported
hay had been found in the grass
known under the common name of
millet. A cutting of millet lately
made on the premises of Judge Mc-
Cully, givcs about 2 tons to the
acre, a growth of two months. Five
crops can be taken off in the year.
It proves to bo an excellent article
of feed. Summing up the imports
of our live stock, hay, dairy pro
ducts, potatoes, etc., for 1887,
shows in the tables au aggregate of
8310,495.54. The expansion Of the

On motion of Mr. F. A. Schaeter
the report was received and ordered
to bo printed. Mr. Schaefer thought
the report a very elaborate one and
contained tho most reliable informa
tion. Considerable disoussion took
place on grasses in which Messrs.
Horner, T. It. "Walker, Spalding,

To the Stockholders of the Planters'

Your committee appointed to con
sider and report upon the subject
of tho re-organization of tho Com

After consideration and consulta
tion we have arrived at the conclu
sion that we cannot recommend any
change in the organization of the

that the organization should be
maintained as at present established
under the charter of incoiporation ;
but in considering measures for fur
thering the objects of the associa
tion and promoting its eflloieney, we
have concluded to make recommend
ations upon several points.
The lirst relates to those stoek
holdcrs who are in arrcais in the
payment of assessments ;
Tho second to tho method of so
curing funds necessary for defray
ing current expenses ;
And third to tho extension of the
work with the object encouraging
the development of agriculttnal pio
ducts to which the Company has
not heretofore given special atten
tion. First We recommend that stock
holders in arrears for assessments
heretofore levied be restored to all
tho rights and privileges of stock
holders upon their again taking ac
tive part in tho affairs of the Com
pany, and hereafter paying their
proportionate shaie of tho curient
expenses. That all such stockhold
ers so engaging be discharged from
liability under past assessments.
And that greater efforts bo made
to encourage all the sugar planting
and manufacturing interests of tho
country to combine with tho com
pany in seeking tho common good.
These interests will not only bo thus
benefitted, but the welfare of the
whole country wilt be conserved.
We submit herewith an amend
ment to Article IV. of the By Laws,
providing for the restoration of de
linquent stockholders, in accordance
witli tho foregoing recommendation,
which we trust will bo. adopted.
Second Wo recommend that for
the coming year no assessments bo
levied upon the shares of stock, but

Each individual stockholder to
About 81,500 will bo required to

Company and to pay tho running ex
penses during tho year. And if nil
the plantations whom it is reason
able to expect will co-operate, and
the individual stockholders will bear
this light cxpenso tho financial needs
of thb Company will bo provided
If this plan is adopted the contri
butions will not be in the uaturo of
slock assessments, but merely us
Third Wo recommend that Unco
new standing committees of three
members each, be appointed from

gate aud report at the next annual
meeting upon tho following indus
1. Coffee and Tea.

Wo believe that attention should
bo given to every agricultural pro
duct which may tend to develop the
iesourccs of tho country. And wo
trust that careful research and
thought may bp bestowed upon each
of tU'e'ee subjects.
DAILY BULLETIN WEEKLY
Wo'ftuthcr recommend that tho
Board of Trustees resume tho prac
tice of holding stated quarterly
meetings. Wo bcliovo that such
regular mectincs produce good re
sults. And that tho Board of Trustees
take into consideration the advisa
bility ot holding an agricultural
fair at Honolulu, during the coming
spring or summer. And that they
be authorized to take such action in
the matter as they may deem best.
We would also recommend that
Article V. of the By Laws bo
amended so as to admit'of the annu
almcoling of the Company being
held dining some month other than
October in case it should seem ad
visable so to do.
In conclusion we desire to express
our appreciation of the beneficial
results which have been attained by
tho Planters' Company, and dur be
lief that with continued effort very
much more may be accomplished in
tho future for the permanent pros
perity of ilie country.

PIRACY AHU HIDDEN TREASURE.
S.i.mi "Littoll's Living Ago" of
Oct. 13, 1888 : The "Japan Weekly
Mail" contains a report of tho nb
rupt termination of a voyngo from
the port of Yokohama in search of
hidden treasure. The British
schooner Nereid had got from Japan
as far in Guam, a small island be
longing to the Marianne .'roup, in
tho Pacific Ocean. Hero the Cap
lain went on shore, intending to sail
for Yap, in the Carolines, but. on re
turning to where he had loft his ves
sel he found it had been carried
off either by his mate or two Japa
nese, or by all three. These wore
Ihe only persons on board, and as
no trace of the vessel has been found
there is still some mystery about the
affair. The voyage which was
brought to a premature end by this
act of piracy was a curious one.
The caplain had sailed in search of
a treasure which is alleged to have
been lost under these circumstances:
"In 1823, during a revolution in
Porn, a number of wealthy residents
of Lima combined to charter a brig
of three hundred tons, on which
they placed their pioperty in money
and jewelry, a large quantity of
monastic plate being also scut olf
for satety. The intention was to
convey this treasure to Spain. It
is said that there were doubloons to
tho value of 2,000,000, and a vast
sum in plate. But after the treasuie
was on board, and when its owners
came down to the beach, they found
the vessel gone. An Englishman,
a lieutenant in the Peruvian navy,
hearing of the intended flight, had
gone on board with a chosen band,
and had cut out the brig within hail
of a Peruvian man-of-war. He
steered right across the Pacific, and
in course of time reached the Mari
anne Islands, where the treasure
was buried, and a course was made
for Honolulu. Before-reaching this
port (plan els broke out among the
pirates, and the lieutenant, with his
two ofilcers, and a cabin boy, got
into a boat and left the crcw,'l:aving
first set lire to the vessel. One of
tho officers was murdered and
thrown overboard, before the boat
reached Honolulu, where the party
represented themselves as survivors
of a shipping disaster. The lieu
tenant, before leaving Lima, had
been in love with a lady, the wife of
a Peruvian officer who w as slain in
the revolution, and before Inking
any further steps with regard to the
treasure, decided to send for her.
The cabin-boy was despatched as
his emissary to Lima; but on his ar
rival there lie was seized and im
prisoned, and the lady icfused to
have anything further to do with a
man whom she styled a detestable
pirate. The lieutenant aud his sole
remaining companion accordingly
chartered u small fore-and-aft
schooner, the Swallow, commanded
by one Capt. Thompson, aud pro
ceeded to the Mariannes for his
treasure. Thompson tried hard to
get a charter for a specified poit or
ports, but the lieutenant insisted on
a broad charter, including any or all
tho Mariannes. One evening, when
they were in sight of the islands,
the lieutenant, who was sitting on
the lee-rail chatting with his com
panion, was, it is conjectured, tip
ped overboard by the latter and dis
appeared, the usual alarm being
raised ; but the lieutenant's body
was r.ever recovered. Thompson,
from sundry scraps of conversation
which he had overheard, suspected
the object of tho voyage, overhauled
the dead lieutenant's effects, and
among them found a chart of tho
island on which the treasure was
hidden, but with the name omitted.
Soon afterward he sighted another
brig, with the master of which he
was acquainted, and proposed to
him to search for the treasure and
divide it between them, giving the
surviving piriito a share on condition
that ho consented to point out
the spot, but with a threat that if
he did not do so he would forthwith
be handed over to the Spanish
authorities. At a concerted moment
tha-piratc was seized by both cap
tains, and tho, conditions named.
He nodded. They asked him if
he would indicate tho situation of
the treasure. Ho nodded. They
asked him if thin was the island,
pointing to the nearest of Iho group.
He again nodded. They invited him
to btep Into a boat which had been
lowered and guide them to Hip
treasure. He nodded once more,
went below, filled his pockets with
lead and iron, and then going down
tho bidder, pushed off thu boat with
nuu foot trom the side of tho
schooner, and dropped feet first into
tho sea." This put un end to the
treasure hunting; tho chart went
into the possession of tho Spanish
authorities. Mcunwhilo the captain
of the Nereid, who holds or believes
ho holds the clue to the secret of all
this wealth, has lost everything.
Whatever may be thought of this
extraordinary story, what Is boyond
any question is, that an English
shipmaster in Yokohama, at thu
commencement of the proseut year,
set out In a schooner, built under
his own supervision and belonging
to himself, to soared for thu treas
ure supposed to bo hidden more
than sixty years ago among tho
coral Islands of the north Pacific,
and that his crew ran away with his
vessel and have not since been
heard of. Possibly they, too, hav
ing some suspicion of tho object of
tho voyage, dctci mined to recover
Iho treasure on their own. Recount,
The aiory which is hero sumuiarlxed
was taken down from tho mouth of
the captain himself.

A young mini who figures in a.
Merchant stieet More every day,
believes that "cleanliness is next to
godliness." Last evening in com
pany with one of the Government
employees, he went to have
a sea bath near the Myillo Boat
Club house. They enjoyed it muchly
for about half au hour. Both look
groat pains in dressing as it was
their intention to appear on tho ver

their toilet they started for their des

tho Merchant street young man that
he felt like having a pipe of tobacco.
Out came tho pipe and at the same
time n match. The young man had
lit his pipe and after throwing away
the burned match was about to

to miss his step with the rcsultabovc
stated. Under the circumstances
he wisely postponed his visit to tiio
hotel until nnother occasion. -Nov..).
