THE DAILY BULLETIN
Tho lntost nowspapor tolographic
nows on tho Hawaiian question at
Washington is givon olsowhoro.
Nothing lator has boon hoard by tho
Govornmont, as a Bulletin ropro
sontntivo loarnod from Mr. V. 0.
Jonos, Ministor of Finance, in tho
Council chambor this afternoon.
His boliof was that Mr. Thurston
had reserved his tolographic advices
for tho stoamor Australia, which was
to leave San Francisco tho day aftor
tho stoamor China. Tho gist of tho
nows so far as rocoivod would indi
cate tho innninonco of an annexation
treaty being passed by tho Senate.
Mr. Hanison's reported eagerness
to have the acquisition of
tho islands consummated, as a
brilliant stroke of statesmanship bo
foro his retirement, is a confirmation
of tho report from Washington long
before the revolution that such is
just what ho was working for. If
tho indications aro not tho factitious
product of pooplo with whom tho
wish is father to the thought, those
Hawaiian Islands may at this mo
ment bo in fact American territory.
Thoro is just a ehauco that tho Ad
ministration might havo delayed
final action to hoar tho Queon's side
from her Commissioner. As to tho
form of government it is intimated
that tho rulo will bo in the hands of
Commissioners like the District of
Columbia in which Washington, tho
Fedoral capital, is situated. This
means that tho people of tho laud
will not havo any say in affairs. Such
a form would bo akin to tho system
of a British crown colony, and
cannot bo regarded as permanent.
It may be a necessary stage of
preparation for a matured S3'stem of
local self-government. At all events,
whatover the rosults of tho change
may be, a majority of tho people of
tho islands are relieved from any
responsibility in tho matter. It is a
case of tho strong taking charge of
tho weak, porhaps for tho good of
tho weak, porhaps otherwise. With
al, it is gratifying to learn that the
lato Sovereign and her heir are to
havo decent treatment, as to pro
vision for their personal comfort.
contrary to the desiro of a class of
tho revolutionists innocent of the
possession of any conscience.
COFFEE PLANTING IN ICON A.

tho last fow yoars. almost ontirely in
tho hands of natives. Tho patches
Pledged to neither Sect nor Party,
But Established for the Benefit of All.
MONDAY, FEB. 20, 1893.
A useful contribution to tho litera
ture of the coffee industry appears
to-day from tho pen of Mr. W. Mid
ler, who is engaged in planting
coffee in Kona. Wo should bo pleas
ed if other practical men made free
use of our columns in adding to tho
stock of general information on the
Tho amount of benevolent work
done annually by tho women of
California is something grand, ac
cording to the statement reprinted
in this paper from a Now York
journal. There at least woman has
emancipated herself from old fogy
manners that might have interfered
with her doing of good.
Official Vandalism Refuted.
Tho two sideshow sheets Liberal
and Holomua are exorcised over an
alleged chango of ownership in tho
Bulletin. They are both away off.
The Bulletin will continue as here
tofore to be devoted strictly to the
public interests, "pledged to neither
sect nor party," -with its columns
open to respectful discussion on any
side of politics.
If it is to be annexation, perhaps
tho idea of splicing tho group upon
California is the best. It is certainly
better than any schomo that would
admit of any situation horo such as
tho present one in Kansas, where
two factions have each sot up a
Legislature, and tho rival Legisla
tures are menacing one another with
In the evening Bulletin of tho 17th
iust. appears a letter from "Citizen,"
purporting to expose acts of official
vandalism perpetrated by me, in
cutting down trees near tho lvamoha
meha schools, and insinuating that
I am unlawfully disposing of the
firowood thus obtained. "Citizen"
would do well to make sure of facts
before launching out in accusations.
Tho facts are those:
By law. no sidewalks aro built out
side of the city limits. Said limit
ending where tho track to tho rice
plantation crosses the Palama road,
consequently no sidewalks are made
beyond that place. Tho trees cut
down were growing in a zigzag
manner along the road, tho gutter
for which lies two feet from tho Ka
mehameha school wall, and there
fore they interfered with the road.
Tho only tree not in the way is one
left standing near the school gate.
I always make a point of sparing
trees, if I possibly can; witness the
trees oil both sides of Borotania
street and other places. Tho trees
cut down in Palama yielded the im
mense amount of one and a half
cords of 'firewood, which was sold to
Messrs. Dodge and Fernandez for
ton dollars the Minister of the In
terior having ordered me to sell the
wood on tho spot at any price and
thus avoid tho expense' and trouble
of carting it to the Govorinnout
yard. I would invito "Citizen," be
fore ho again goes baud into a mat
ter regarding roads, to call at tho
office, where he will be courteously
received, anu obtain all inlormation
regarding tho cutting down of trees,
selling of firowood or whatever else
he may wish to inquire into pro
bono publico, or for his own privato
edification. Thanking you for tho
space kindly afforded mo.

of coffee disporsed all through tho
district are, with Uio exception oi
tho plantation at Napoopoo, merely
tho romains of humlrods of acres
planted some fifty yoars ago. These i
patches having survivod tho blight I
and yoars of drought may bo pro-)
sumod to stand in soil and under
conditions most suitablo for coffee.
As thoso ancient trees are found in
pahoohoo land as well as in aa land,
the thoory that aa is a sine qua won
for coffeo is exploded. Yet it is a
fact that by far the greater portion
is found on aa lands, and tho surviv
ing patches horo are larger and more
From tho foregoing it must bo in
ferred that the superiority of tho aa
over tho pahoohoo is to bo attribut
ed not to a chemical difforenco in
thoir composition, but rat her to some
other nocossari' proportios found
more lanrolv in tho former than in
in tho latter. What thoso properties
are mav bo readily soon in tin differ
ence of tho naturo of theso two dis
trict lava flows.
The pahoohoo is of a more solid
substance and sheds tho wator; it be
gins to disintegrate at the surface, tho
soil thus formed accumulates in the
lower places, winch accounts for tho
fact that the depth of soil on these
lands is not at all uniform. It is in
theso so-called pockets that some
healthy old coffeo trees aro found.
Tho a-a is of a light and porous
substanco, and owing to its groat
rapidity in cooling has a tondoncy
to pile up in greatly brokon-up
masses. Most aa flows aro therefore
of great depth. It also allows tho
wator freely to enter and hence be
gins to disintegrate at the bottom, thus
forming in time a soil of groat and
In pahoohoo land you dig through
soil and find rock in aa land you
dig through rock and find soil. This
soil boinir of a gravelly charac
ter allows tho water to sink through
and retains moisture through
mouths of dry weather.
Tho rocks or stones invariably
found on tho surface of such lands
aid in keeping it clean of grass and
also retain tho warmth so necessary
to 3'oung trees. Some of our most
uninvitingly rough lands will, I be
lieve, prove our best coffee lands.
Different opinions havo been hold
by various planters as to tho kind of
plants preferred for planting. Tho
old stylo of merely digging up half-
grown trees ola spontaneous growtn
aud transplanting them is, I beliove,
practiced at present by natives only.
The other fnodes aro, transplanting
from nurseries, stump planting, and
transplanting very young (two
leaved) plants of a spontaneous
Equally good results seonied to bo
achieved by these throe modes of
planting; but as practical men seem
to learn more toward stump-planting,
I shall explain it further.
Young trees of about half an inch
diameter are carefully dug up, tho
steins cut off a couple of inches from
the roots, and these stumps, that is
tho roots with the short stems, aro
then planted a trille deopor than
they stood before. Of tho several
shoots that will sprout from tho
stoms only one is left to develop into
Theso trees should bear within
two years. I cannot refrain from
saying hero that tho success of a
coffee plantation depends not so
much on the inodo of planting as on
tho all-important matter, tho right
kind of soil.

Women be they

thoy may, however gifted with intellect or
genius, or enuowcu witn awiui oemity, nave
always some little handiwork ready to fill
the tiny gap of ovory vacant moment. A
needle is familiar to the fingers of them all.
A ijneen, uo doubt, plies It on occasion; tlio
woman poet can uh6 it us adroitly as her
pen; tin. woman's oyo, that has discovered
a new star, tuins from Its glory to send tho
polished little instrument gleaming along
tho bom of hor kerchief, or to darn a casual
fray in her dress. And thoy have greatly
tho advuntugo of us in this respect. Tho
slender thread of silk or cotton keeps them
united with tho small, familiar, gentle in
terests of life, tho continually operating in
JIueneoH of which do bo much for tho health
of tlio character, ami carry oil' what would
otherwise he a dangerous accumulation of
morbid bunsihility. A vast deal of human
sympathy runs along this electric Hue,
stretching from tho throne to tlio wicker
chair of the humblest seamstress, uud
keeping high and low in a species of com
munion with their kindred beings."
