At tlio afternoon session of tho
Planters' Labor and Supply Com
pany yesterday tho committoo on
tho resolution regarding tho
olmrgos for nnulysos of fertilizers
reported in favor of each planter
paying to tbo association the cost
of each analysis ordored, accord
ing to a scalo of charges to be de
termined by Director Maxwell.
Tho report was adopted.
Professor Maxwell then road u
long and exhaustive roport on
the soils of tbo islands which was
ordered printed for distribution.
F. M. Swanzy, chairman of tho
Committeo on Labor, read tho ro
port of bis committeo, the im
portant parts of which show that
the area of sugar lands now un
dor cultivation is lurger than evor
beforo and that tho crop of the
present year will bo the largest
over known. Tho ostimato is
190,000 tons. Thero wus a pros
pect of the supply of labor falling
short of tho requirements in
spito of tho efforts of the trustees.
The proposed importation of 600
Portuguese had only brought
342, with littln bopo of any moro
coming. Tho expenses connocted
with importing this lot of labor
ers had cost the planters $65,000,
which wus more than they could
afford. A project was now under
consideration looking to tho
bringing of Portuguese in small
lots by way of tho United States,
and tho plantoru burf agreed to
take a number equal to 20 per
cent of tho Chineso und Japanrso
laborers providing the expense
does not exceed 1100 per man.
The mattor of obtaining Chinoso
from Hongkong was gono into,
but the roport statod that out of
1576 applied for only 942 had
boen received. So far these ar
rivals have given satibfactiou, us
have the Japanese. Tho question
of obtaining Gorman laborers for
tbo plantations was being consid
ered. The report also give statistics
of laborers employed on the sugar,
rice, and coiloe plantations, and
shows thero are 5,042 Portuguese,
22,864 Japaneso aim 15,702 Chi
noso in all, but those uro not all
engaged in field work. There are
20,484 field luborers distributed
about tho plantations, viz: Ha
waiians 1606, Portuguese 2578,
Chinese 4080, Japanese 11,841,
others 879, about hxlf of whom
uro under contract. These figures
show tho total number of mulo lu
borers on tho plantations to be
129 more than in October, 1894
Tho coffee industry employs 446
laborers, dividod us follows: Hu
wuiiaus 25, Jajmuese 399, Chineso
11, Portnguoso 7, others 4. The
report calls attention to tho largo
number of Japanese who ure ap
parently unemployed but cannot
account for them. Desertions

THIS MOKNINO'8 SESSION.
Promptly nt 10 o'clock this
morning President Sc'mefer called
tho ineot'ng to order, the atloud-
anco of mombors being uo.irly as
largo as yesterday.
The first busituss was th road
ing of the constitutinii aud bylaws
of the new association whioh is
proposed to bo formed, owing to
changed conditions which have
taken placo in the past few years'
in the sugar industry.
Prosidont Sohaofor stated that
tho present organization was a
corporation having shares of stock
but liuTing no property of any
description which thej- wore sup
posed to represent. As a matter
of fnot the corporation hud never
complied with the laws of tho
country regarding corporations.
It was now proposed to substitute
the prehont corporation by a pri
vate oganizatiou to ho known us
tho Hawaiian Planters' Associa
tion. Tho preamblo was then road
and carried. It statos that the
object of tho Association is to
further the interests of tho ttugir
industry, to provido the neces
sary labor for tho plantations and
otherwise encourngo ugriculturo
throughout tho islands.
Tho by laws wore then read and
voted on separately. They do
not differ materially from those of
tho old corporation. An annual
assessment of $25 Is lovicd on
oach plantation represented in
tho Association and $5 on each
member. Diroct assessments may
be levied at aunual raeotiugs of a
pro rata of caoh ton of sugar pro
duced. The by laws as presented by tho
trustees were adopted.
Tho oloction of trusteos for tho
ensuing yoar wus next in order,
and the old trustdos woro unani
Mr. Morrison of the Makawoli
plantation rend an interesting ro
port on fertilizers. It showed the
beneficial results of a combination
of stable manures aud artificial
fertilizers and gdvu tho results of a
series of experiments conducted at
Makawoli by which tho yield of
sugar por aero was more than
doubled. Tho report was on gx
haustivo one and treated the sub
ject both from a practical and
scientific standpoint. At its
closo tho speakor was greeted
with applauso and the roport was
ordered r ut-d ;.t length in tho
Dr. Muxivuli th"ii road his ro

ono hour in the reading.
After tho reading of Professor

At tho afternoon session Pro
fessor Maxwell will road an addi
tional paper on the vo-fermentation
of sugar and Joseph Mursdun
