Tlioro aro two things in Paradiso
that havo not boon inipairod hy for
eign legislation; tho climato ami tho
sconorv. Tlio McKinloy Bill may
havo fiad a cooling oiroct upon tho
ardor of tho sugar plnntor in Ha
waii, but it has not materially de
creased tho output of tho planta
tions. It lias made rich mon poor,
so far as rich and poor go in. Hawaii,
but if ono-fourth of Iho lucre laden
od capitalists, in tho United States,
those nion whoso anatomy around
tho thumb and index finger becomes
bunion marked through fronuont
contact with tho coupon shears
could retire to thoir boudoirs at
night with tho knowledge- that they
had a safe deposit vault filled with
sugar stock that paid a cocksuro
dividont of ton per cent., thoy would
bo willing to battle with such
poverty "twolvo months in tho yivir.
If it should ovor happen that
sugar growing potored out; that cof
fee planting bo irrevocably killed by
the blight or tho action of our Gov
ernment. Should it ovor happen
that Iho strawberry guava will not
"jol," Hawaii will havo her scenery to
farm out to tourists at vory reduced
Persons who havo never been away
from tho kingdom do not appreciate
it and foreigners cease to value
nature's grandeur once thoy sottlo
down to tho slow-going, tropical
gait of tho Hawaiian. Tho true ap
preciation is loft to tho tourists who
come from tho four quarters of tho
globo to help out tho Honolulu
hackman; to tho nowspapor attacho
who doles out his ideas at so much
per coluirfh and to tho mombors of
tho Bureau of Information.
Hawaii is substantially fixed for
scenery and may bo classed with
countries that aro considered above
want in thi3 respect. Wo hold out,
as an iuducomont' to foreigners to
visit us, tho Volcano as one of tho
grandest attractions in tho islands
and forgot, in q measure, that in
Oahu, nature has been so gonorous'
in hor allotment of things to please
tho 030 that tho traveler from tho
Gape of Good Hope would bo full'
compensated for his long voyago by
merely journoying around Oahu.
But if tho information bureau
man should confine himself to Oahu,
scenery and not include tho other
islands in his toot, there would bo
a huo and cry that thoy wore being
discriminated against in their
scenery qualifications just as thoy
are in tho appropriation bill. Tho
Hilo man would havo you romembor
that tho Volcano road is on tlm wav
to completion and, paranthotically
that tho hotels aro above reproach
just as thoy aro abovo the sea lovol
and that ovory room has a southern
exposure, Tho Wailuku man would
remind you that tho Crater of Ilnlo
akala still remains extinct, is tho
largest of its class in tho world, and
that horses nray be hired for tho
journey at reasonable rates. The
Kauainn would swell up with in
dignation and splutter at the slight
you had put ujiou his, the Ganlou
Isle, which is still tho oldest iu tho
group. Ho would prod j-ou iu tho
short ribs and tell you that tho
"gauds of Kauai are still willing to
bark and the caves of Hanaloi aro
open tho year round,
Start out from your hotel earl',
any clear morning, intent upon
doing the island and your horse, if
he be native- and (o tho manner
born, will probably take up Nuunuu
streot past tho beautiful homes of
Honolulu's solid men onto the Royal
Mausoleum whore you may lot your
oyos feast upon tho final resting
place of dead and gone nionarchs of
Hawaii, mon who ruled the nation
when to bo a king was considered
Iho best job in tho country. Tho
sovereign who roignod in tho days
when the Palaco was a grass houso
and his worldly possessions extend
ed as far as the eye could roach lios
by the sido of Kalakaua, whoso ac
cession to the throno was tho dawn
of prosperity to tho islands, whoso
death was tho pall that covered the
corpso of Hawaii's chief industry.
Everyone had a kind feeling for
JRox and tlioro wore many congenial
spirits who mado merry with him
around his festive board, and yot
among tho ninety thousand inhabi
tants of tho islands there cannot bo
raised suiuViont funds to erect i
monument to his memory.
With such thoughts in" your mind
you seek a brighter subject and
press onward up a gradual slopo
passing tho Government oloctric
light works. Further on you seo tho
ruins of an Hawaiian stone houso
which j-our guido book tolls you
was onco occupied by Kamohanioha
III. It is only a ruin now, and tall
weeds chase each othor in thoir ef
forts to hide it from view. A mo
ment suffices to fill you with sugges
tions of what may havo boon, in con
nection with this ruin when it was
frequented by a ruler such as wo aro
told Kamohanioha III. was.
But your inclination is to move
onward and upward, tho balmy air
of tho lower level has changed to
something more bracing; it seoms
strange to you after living in a tem
perature of 80 degrees and you aro
tempted to stop and inhale ozono
that is too refreshing to last. On
3'our right j-'ou look down through
ferns and shrubbory which make
tho spot tho Mocca of tho botanist.
Backward you see the blue wators
of tho Pacific ancl tho busy city you
loft an hour boforo almost buried in
foliago. You have formed tho same
opinion as havo ton thousand
others who preceded 3-ou ovor the
same boatou pathway you think
"Tills is tho spot you long have sought
And mourned because you found it not."
Nature, howovor, has prepared a
greater treat for you: in Oahu she
has done nothing bjr halves. Climb
higher and you stand upon tho brink
of a precipice two thousand feet to
I no n.isoj uouiuii yon is a.porpoiiuu'-
! thousand foot to tho top. Tho tour
ist who has "done" Cojorado will bo
reminded of tho lioyaf Gorge as to
I rocks and short turns.
j Thousands of feet bolow tho land
i is dotted with homos of tho rice
planter, tlio banana grower. A
range of moss-covered fonirclad
mountains blocks your vision at the
northwest, before you lies Kualoa
Tho scene is enchanting beyond
tho descriptive capabilities of tho
avorngo man. It is -inviting to anyone-
who visits tho Pali tho first
time, and you yield to the tempta
tion to go further into wonderland.
Tho path zigzags precipitously for a
mile and rather than risk broken
bones you weigh tho confidouco you
have in your pedal extremities and
compare it with that which you feel
m your horse and decide to dis
mount and foot it.

If j-ou happen along any dav bo
foro Friday you will find in" Mr.
Olds, tho owner of tho rose garden
and tho Aennotor, a typical yankeo
who, away back in the" forties, grow
ing weary under tho restraint put
upon him by his Puritan parents ill
Vermont, wrapped his Stradivarius
iu a rod bandana and journeyed to
Boston when he shipped on a whaler
bound for tho Pacific. What ho
lacked at a harpoonist ho made up
as a niusiciaiij and his captain used
to placo him in tho bow of tho small
boat and havo him charm the whales
with tho notes from his violin while
the moro experienced sailors wore
making mental calculations as to
whether it would bo a fin back or a
right. Mr. Olds retired from
whaling joars ago and sottled in
Honolulu whore ho fiddled himself
into prosperity ami subsequent afllu
ence. Fivo days in tho week ho
watches his roses grow and the
wheel of his windmill revolvo; dur
ing the other two days he visits his
friends in Honolulu and collects tho
revenue from his business which ho
leaves in charge or a manager.
Having hail a taste of tho
pilality of a resident of Oahu
soul thirsts for knowledge.
nave seen tho sugar cane growing;
you aro anxious to learn what be
comes of it after it ripens and is cut
down by t ho remorseless hand of the
Japanese laborer, lleoia affords an
excellent opportunity for a gratifica
tion of tho desires in this respect,
and Mr. Buchholtz, tho manager will
entertain you for an hour and show
you the method of transforming tho
succulent cano into A 1 sugar, from
the timo it is stripped in the field to
tho last stage when it is placed in
tho sack read for shipment to Ho
nolulu. Leaving Heoia, if you havo not
been satiated with kindness at the
hands of the people you havo mot,
if your thirst for tho beautiful in
nature or knowledgo in sugar grow
ing has iiot boon quonohed, follow
tho road as it trends along tho beach
past Kaalnca, an extensive rice plan
tation. If tho season is right you
will bo interested in tho Chinamen
sotting out rico plants. Thoro will
bo no lack of novelty for the strangor
no matter where no has traveled.
Tlio scenery along tho road will
fully compensate you for your
journey, tlio foliage .grows more
variegated in color, and tho rocks
At Kualoa, if your tastes run to
ward blood horses an hour with Mr.
Judd, tho owner of the ranch, and
his estimable wife will strengthen
your opinion of tho hospitality of
tho peoplo of tho island, as well as
give you an idea of thoir apprecia
tion of good horse flesh..
The road from Kualoa takes
you past one or two more
extensive rice plantations in which
the Chinese aro working liko
beavors. At Laio Mormons have
a small sugar plantation which
thoy work more to givo employment
to the native members of the organ
ization than for profit. They havo a
mill that was iu operation for years
but after tho completion of the Ka
huku mill throe miles further on,
they decided to abandon it rather
than go to the expense of putting in
modern machinery. Their ohureh
will soat upward of a thousand peo
ple and a dwolliui' iu course of erec
tion is of modern architecture and
You have now traveled upward of
thirty-five miles, but so over-changing
has been tho scenery, so warm
tho salutations of tho people you
have met on the road, that you fool
that your tour will not bo complete
without going to Kahuku, the second
largest and latest acquisition to the
sugar induhlry of tho island.
Hero you find twelve hundred
acres of laud planted iu cano that
shoots up to enormous heights, Last
year tho first crop passed through
tho mill and tweuty-threo hundred
tons of sugar was producod. This
season it is estimated that (lie out
put will reach thirty-two hundred
Uuder tho management of Mr.
James Cowan additional land is bo-
ing prepared for tho cultivation of
the cano. A year afjo thoro was
more or loss trouble with their Jap
anese laborers owing to sickness, but
this has gradually disappeared and
tho commodious hospital which tho
company erected for tho accommo
dation of their laborers has been
transformed into a billiard room.
Tho process of irrigation has been
successful! accomplished by Mr.
Cowan by pumping from artesian
wells and a subterranean river into
a ditch which rilus through tho
land. For tho purposo of watering
a thirty acre tract a lG-foot geared
Aennotor lias lately been added to
tho pumping outfit. This Aennotor
pumps from tho ditcli and dis
charges over tho thirty acres ton,,
thousand-gallons of water por hour.
The success of the Aennotor in this
instanco is a sourco of satisfaction
to the plantation mauagoras woll as
tho agents of tho Aorniolor Co. in
Honolulu, because it demonstrates
beyond a doubt that thoy will do
tho work heretofore done by steam
pumps at a vory much loss "expense.
This Aennotor runs a triple-acting
5-inch cylinder Krough lift and
force pump, which forces tho water
in a continual stream 500 foot
through a (i-inch pipo to an eleva
tion of fifty-five feet, pumping and
distributing what is termed on plan
tations "three men's water." At this
plantation the work could not havo
been accomplished by any othor
means, and it is understood that
other plantations will adopt this
mill for tho same purpose as it is
used at Kahuku.
After you havo been shown ovor
the plantation, inspected the mill
and seen tho wheels go around, Mr.
Cowan and his charming wife will
bestow such kind attention to on
that you will forgot your long jour
ney; tho surroundings will possess
such enchantments that you will bo
tempted to sottlo hero for life.
