DANIEL. LOGAN. Editor.
Refrigeration in ocean steam
ships is revolutionizing ttio fruit
trndo of the world. Lately about
thirty caseB of maugoes an ox
tromoly perrelmble fruit nud
pineapples from Qticoiislaud woro
landed in London in perfect con
dition. Tho fruit was sent as
presents to porsous of uoto, and
some of it was sent to Queen Vic
toria at Oituioz, in the South of
Franco. Queonslaud is quito
nlivo to the fruit trado. Our towns
folk who visited tho steamer
Aoran(i at tho wharf horo tho
othor day had their olfactories
tickled with n dolicious aroma of
apples, which, on following their
noses, they found to proceed from
cases stamped in Queensland. It
could be seen through the inter
stices that great care had beon
used in packing the fruit, oach
applo being enclosed in papor as
lomous and oranges aro treated in
countries that know what's what
in marketing fruit. Hawaii will
hae to wake up if she is going to
do anything particular in fruit
exports. SnuFraucisco will shortly
be supplied with fruit in the
freshest condition from Panama,
as the Pacific Mail Steamship
Company have decided to place
refrigerator plants in all their
boats, beginning with those on
the Panama route. This will give
fcnu Francisco in galore fruits and
vegetables grown in the tropics
when thoy are out of season on
the Pacific Coast. There ought to
bp a Fruit Growers' Association
hore which would look after tho
rights of Hawaii in the matter of
transportation and refrigerating
protection upon all ocean steamers
that receive concessions from this
It would not bo suiprising if
the case ot tho steamer Zealandia
should prove to the British cable
people tho necessity of securing
connection with Honolulu. An
editorial in tho New Zealand Her
ald urging, by that example, that
Pacific steamship trafho had more
than roachod a degree of develop
ment requiting the services of a
cable, has beon reprinted with
comments in English papers and
periodicals. The Zealandia was
six days behind schedule timo in
reaching Auckland from San
Fraucisco via Honolulu, and the
public anxiety becamo so great at
Auckland regarding the steamer
that a government steamer was
sout out on a cruise of search.
The fact that the British naval
ship Penguin, now on a
Pacific cable survey, has
'Honolulu for her ultimate
destination is also siguiBcant. In
all probability the near future
will Bee a cable from North Ame
rica to Japan under American
and Japanese auspices, and an
other from the same continent to
Australia under British auspices,
with both tapping Hawaii as a
necessary station on account of
its maritime position.
Cocoa is a produot that has
often boon advocated as feasible
for raising in these islands. Cad
bury Brothers of Birmingham,
England, have bought three cocoa
estates in Trinidad, W. I., and aro
negotiating for a fourth. The
estates aro at an elevation of 1000
feet, in tho middle of tho district
whoroin the finest cocoa is grown.
It is surprising that some of the
large grocery firms in San Fran
cisco do not look into the possibi
lities of Hawaii for furnishing
them with such staples as cocoa,
coffee, etc., at first band.
In Japan there aro apple-trees
-growing four inches in height,
which freely bear fruit about tho
Bize of currants.

BIRD CAGES, TROPICAL
Everyone knows that a bird
in the hand is worth two in
the bush and this is particu
larly the case when the bird is
a pet canary and a good singer.
Nice birds should be kept in
nice cages and then they will
have no desire to take to the
bushes. We have just opened
up a variety of Bird Cages in
painted wire at $1.50 to 2.0;
and in brass $.0 to $4.50; in

The mango season is now
on in all its force and the small
boy is engaged in his yearly
tussle with that luscious fruit.
In former years for every
mango fit to eat the boy
knocked down with a rock he
destroyed eight or ten unripe
ones besides half ruining the
tree. All this is changed now
since the introduction of our
Wire Fruit Pickers. With one
of these attached to a long pole
any particular mango can be
plucked without hurting the
tree or knocking off the unripe
fruit. By using one of these
handy pickers one gets several
times" more fruit in better con
dition than by the old way of
firing rocks at the tree. They
cost only 50 cents each and a
child can use them.
