Alexander Cookburn of Kailua,
Hawaii, jnado a flying trip to Ho
nolnln by tfieMateat trip of tho
etoamor Mauna L'pa. Ho Jfiw been
tho author and tho strong advo
cate, in the Hilo press, of a sys
torn of government inspectibn and
stamping of Hawaiian coflom
Upon this subject in particular
ho was, on tnis occasion, Bpoken
to by a Bulletin representative.
"It is tho'koystone of tho cofToo
industry in thoso islands, and you
cannot make too maoh of it," Mr.
"Government inspection is the
only thing that will save the small
producers, tho. owners of home
steads thoy weroiuduced to buy
from tho Government.
"Tho official brand, of tho Gov
ernment is absolutely necessary
to provont the degradation of Ha
waiian coffee in tho markets of tho
world. Thoro is a lot of trash
now being sold as Hawaiian
coileo. Broken and decayed beans
picked up at tho roots of tho
trees aro mixed with whole and
sound beans, both which boing
ground togothor make an inferior
artialo that will give Hawaiian
coffoo a bad namo whorovor it'is
"There is nothing to hinder the
mixing of burnt cofenls with our
genuine coffee and placing tho
adulterated stuff on tho market as
Hawaiian coffee. You may easily
imagino what results Bixoh prac-'
tisos would have upon tho reputo
tion of our coffee abroad. It
would simply bo destroyed.
"Hawaiian coffee is equal to tho
finest Mooha, and whorovor tho
real article is introduced adomand
is created. Once you allow trnBhy
stuff to go into such a place, how
over, tho good namo of our coffeo
"An official gunranteo would
koep tho market forus -wherever
it was gained. Say a housekeeper
or a hotel manager sont out for a
supply of coffee, and tho servant
brought bnck a bag without any
mark to guarantee it. If wo had
a system of inspection and brand
ing hero, ho would say: 'What is
this you have got ? I want Ha
waiian No. 1.'
"This is one of tho most import
ant matters in this country today.
If coffee inspection gained ono
cent a pound in tho prico for us,
it would well ropay tho oxponso of
the system. But tho probability
is that it would increase the prico
of our coffoo uy four or five cents."
'How would it savo tho small
farmors in distinction from largo
concorns f "
"Booauso the small farmors could
sell their produot at a good price,
ono in keeping, with the roputation
of Hawaiian coffeo in, tho world's
markets. Their stamped coffee
might lie? in tho Government ware
house paying internal taxes
whilo awaiting a rising market,
for perhaps two or throo years
and any banker would readily
advance 75 por cont of its value.
''Wholesale merchants, on tho
other hand, can doal profitably in
even an inferior articlo, because
thoy get their profit out of mer
chandise supplied to tho country
trade in exchange for the product
of tho small producers. Thoy can
thuB afford, also, to sacrifice good
coffoo at, a prico below its value,
and ono that would bo simply
ruinous to. tho small farmers. In
this way it is only a matter of
time,, as so'me predict without
knowing tho truo reason, when
the small coffeo farmers will havo
to capitulate to largo corpora
tions." Questioned as to tho number of
inspection and warehousing
stations that would bo needed,
Mr. Cockburn said that ono at
Hilo and anothor at IIouolulu
should be. sufficient. The fi
would pay nil the expenses of the
service. Ho pave many iiixiiinros
(if tins value of official jguarantoes
to various commodities of differ
ont countries, and besidos inspec
tion ho suggested var'ioty in pack
ing as being likely to prove of
great advantage to Hawaiian
coffee. Havo it put up not mere
ly bagged in the bean, but en
closed ju attractive and conveni
ent packages for. household consumption.

VfipA. Stone of Pennsylvania
