HHo People to Petition for a Wharf and

Th following inlnroMiiiR eorron
pomlenco from tlio island of Hawaii
camo to hnuil by tlio lrnt Bttnnr:
Most of tlio pupulnliou of Hawaii

tiers who muaii business and aro

in this district is boiug taken up

and a tree four years old will yield
2J pounds; a vory little figuring will
show the cause of the (settlers' en
thusiasm. Thd Puna district ia also being
rapidly settled. Although there is
plenty of good land left, it is thought
that it will not be disposed of till
better laud laws are made aud oue
or two roads built. Auother large
tract of land altogether suitable for
coffeo lies directly back of Hiln,
Most of this land has been sold at
auction at from SI to 12 per aero.
There are some thirty-five claims

acres nearly ready for planting, D.
H. Hitchcock has twenty-eight

and bearing nicely. Sheriff Williams
has ten a: res planted and E. G. Hitch

Dr. Williams of Hilo has ten aeros

with many thousands ol eolleo plants

M. Wakefield, one of HUo'h young
lawyers, is a settler in this district
and has probably tho finest nursery.
It covers oue antl one-fourth acros of

If cnffVo prove a succtss (and
there is not much doubt ot it) Ha
waii will shortly bo tho most import
ant island of tho group. Hor area of
120 square, miles or more than twieo
the area of Oahu, Kauai and Maui
combined, is ono among the many
points of vantage. Muny thousand
acres of good agricultural lnd
capable of growiug all the grains
aud fiuits of tho temperate zone lie
at an altitude of from 1200 to 5000
fet. Lower down is tho coffro belt
and still nearer tho coast Hawaii's
many sugar plantations; in fact all
the productions of the Temperate
and Torrid Zon'o can be grown on
Hawaii within 25 miliH of the const.
Her geographical poiitiou give Ha
waii another advantage over her
shier island', being nearly a day's
run nearer to San Fraucisco. This
in tlio near future make i
first port of call and
probably the (IrM coaling station for
ships that emerge from the Nicara
gua Canal bound for tho Orient.
The natural advantages of Hilo's
harbor aro far ahead of any of the
group, but it is necessary that money
should bo spent for wharves aud
other harbor improtements.
Hut Hawaii's great howl at the
pr-3nt time in for roads. The gov
ernment has leaded and Hold lands
adjacent to Hilo aud in eomo parts
roads havo been surveyed, but the
citizens aud settlers claim that it
goes uo further. Even on tlio
Homestead tract only four miles from
Hilo the road is ouly built part of the
way, and the expeiibeof transporting
lumber over the last two or three
miles is more than the original cost,
and the government provides that a
man oliull build n house before he
prove up ami got a title
to his laud. It is tho same of
tho district lying directly back
of Hilo, Hotno thirty-five men
aro improving their claims as rapid
ly as possible, but every stick of
lumber has to bo packed ou horses'
back-). There is not a foot of road
way built outride of Hilo in this di
rection. This Mate of affairs got
monotonous a short time since and
an effort was made to obtain a rea
sonable appropriation for the con
struction of roads from Hilo to sev
eral outlying districts. After much
hard work a sum was secured aud
work began on two roads, the oue
toward the Homestead Tract aud
tho other to the L'una district. Tho
Homestead road, although survoyed,
has not beeu finished and it is posi
tively daugoroiH to traverse the
country, oven on horseback. A road
through this stretch of fertile coun
try to Uamakua would bo the meaus
of improviug the homesteads in
short order. Another road tho gov
ernment has consented to build is
known as the Puna road. It starts
on tho Volcauo road nine miles from
Hilo. There are about 25,000 acres ( is an old wooden building aud a dis

ditlhultios of transportation neces-1

some forty-five were detailed on the

highway has been finished in less
than three months. NevorthelesB

J 0 u,s road to their only shipping
and supply depot. An eiiort, was
made to stop work on tho Hilo end
of this road aud start afresh at Polio
iki, the present proposed terminus.
This raised a howl from Hilo and a
petition signed by nearly ovory rep
resentative mail iu the district pro
testing against tho notv move was
sont to Honolulu. As yet no change
has boon made and the prisoners are
still workiui; on tho Hilo end of tho
Heretofore the pooplo ot Hawaii
havo boon satisfied to get the scraps
as far as appropriations for improve
ments aro concerned, but now they
propose to carry war to tho enemy's
camp and aro going to begin by lay
ing a list of grievances before the
groat oues at Honolulu, letting the
fiorco whito light rest upon them so
plainly that legislator ran see tham
plainly. In the first place, they are
going to ak for a break-water and
wharf at Hilo. Several times money
has beon appropriated for the im
provement of Hilo bay, but tho ap
propriation, however, was always
placed at the end of tln list. Con
sequently Hilo bay is still unimprov
ed. Commerce is continually in-
creasing, and more and more of tho
sugar produced aloiiK the Hilo coast
is finding its way here, its natural
port for shipment. The need of a
breakwater aud wharf becomes tnoro
aud more apparent.
It seems peculiar to tho people of
Hawaii that thousands of tons of
freight from the immediate viciuity
of Hilo should first have to go to
Honolulu, there to bo shipped to
America, wheu it could bo takon di
rect much cheaper, and save stock
holders of sugar companies nitcy
thousands of dollars each year that
tliey now pay at Honolulu fuf
freight, commissions, storage, etc.
Private capital was forthcoming n
short time since for the purpose ot
bulldiug a wharf, but the promoters
wore informed by tho Government
that it was tho policy of the Gov
ernment to o-vu aud control all
wharves built on Government pro
perly, and now tho people of Hilo
and vicinity aro wondering how soon
these things will be given them.
Somt? new blood has rocoutly been
infused into tin' Hilo district and it
is cow piopoed to kick, aud kick
vigjrously for internal improve
ments. The settlors will soon ox
port a lot of co (Toe aud will demand
j proper facilities for sbippiog the
' same. The production of green
fruits for foreign consumption is re
ceiving tho attention of residents
who aro spending $7i,000 a year in
Stu Francisco for feed for stock.
A road to the grain and pasture
lauds of tho upland slopes of
Mauua Kea aud Mauua Loa would
in a few years obviate tho necessity
of sending so much money abroad.
Butter and cheese would not havo

lands were tapped with proper high
ways. Tho streets of Hilo aro un

tive fashion (coal oil lamps). Its

The feasibility of local self
govornmotit is being discussed by
tho thinking men of tho island, and
unless the government brings out
and perfects a plan for internal im
provements, there is scarcely a man
on tho island who will not petition
to cut looso locally. Tho majority
of the people of Hawaii are slauuoh
supporters of tho Kepublic, but
they will soon demand that the
largor part of her taxes be spent ou
the Island of Hawaii, instead of
going to beautify other parts of
tho Republic. Nothing disgruntles
a community so much as to discover
that it is not receiving its share of
public monies aud Hawaii is firmly
convinced that sho is being dis
criminated agaiuit iu the matter
of publio improvements.
