"What did you boo in Olaa?"
was asked of Mr. T. F. Lansing,
who litis lately returned from a
three weeks' visit to theGro -"in
coffee plantation at Olaa disinut,
"Well, I visited most of tho pio
miuent plantations in the 'i titt
during my stay.' Tho weather was
fine nnd thoro was vory littlo rain,
so I was able to got around a good
deal. I was only kept in tho house
ouo dny on account of rain. That
day tho gauge registered 1.30
inches, but on other days wo only
had a few light showers which
registuied moro thnn a qu A
an inch, and that's pretty dry
weather for Olaa.
"About coffee! Oh, coff" it
all light and so is Olaa. Mo9t of
tho pioneer plantors havo taken
off good crops this season, that is
good for the third year. While
tho yield has not come up to what
the books say has been pi oil need
in Java, Ceylon and other phicQ3,
still it has been vorv satisfactory.
especially to thosoMvho did not
look lor any crop at all. At
Roiuhardt's placo at thn 15 ntilo
post, a good crop was tuiM off
20 acres of 3 year-old tree, and
Ziinmonimnn, higher up the
road, also did very well.
At tho 11 mile pott Peter
Leo of tho Volcano Houso has got
an oxcellout lot of trees nnd they
mako a splendid showing.
"Pcau't remombocall the places
I visited but nearly all tho early
plantings in tho district havo pro
duced coffee this season, homto
moro and sorao loss. Of C-....J
tho acreago to produce a bearing
crop this year is quito limitod.
Next yoar it will bo moro ;I au
doubled and the year after that
doubled again, whilo tho trooa
that havo borno the proaont crop
should yield twice bb much this
yoar aud thrso times as zl.v'j
noxt. From now on Olaa corToa
will commonco to mako a sui in
tho market. While Mr. Homor's
iifty-ucro plantation at Kukaiau
has undoubtedly borno tho lnrgost
crop this yoar of nny plan
tation in tho islands, still I
havo ovory reason to boliove
tho Olaa plantations will do just
pb well when thoy aro old ouough.
"What is tho feeling as to the
future of tho industry?" was noxt
"In Olaa the gonoral foolin" is
that coffeo oulturo is no lougi .u
experiment. It has got bp-Ttl
that nnd tho coffeo produced has
boon marketed and sold at a re
munerative figure. What bettor
argument do you want? Thev
Uwtiit nono bettor in Olaa, and on
the strength of this years rot "'tis
tho planters are laying their plans
to put in an incroasod acreago
this yoar. Thoro is no d 'Ms
about tho futuro of Olaa in tho
minds of any of those living,
"What about tho plaa.oid
thomselves?" nskod tho roportor.
"Well, I will say thoy de-.,o
all they aro gottiug. Thoy
aro a fino lot of citizens, good
hard-working men. Thoy work
liko beavers and thoy havo th, Mp
potites of horses. Why, I aio as
much as, a horso would myself
after being out among tho t' IV"o
for a few days. It is a healthy
climate up thoro and mon on-do
plenty of work. Thero is no liner
sot of mon to bo found any wLe.o
thau in Olaa. Thoy aro social,
hospitable ond woll informed, in
spito of occasional reports to thj
contrary. I know thoy troatfd mo
vory well nud I oujoyod my viuit
"If I wero to venture n predic
tion," concluded Mr. Lansing, "I
should say that two years from
now, or say tho fall of 1809, tho
oxports of coffeo from Hilo will
bo of such magnitude ns to attract
world-wide attention and bHng
coffeo buyers hero from all tho
principal marts of tho world."
