W. G. IRWIN ON COFFEE
TWO MILLION nOM.IIIM now in

The Uiillnl Mules Lnnklnir l llnnnll
for Cheap Coffee-;. L.
People who bavo mado a care
ful Btudy of tba ooffeo question
are now looking toward tbo Ha
waiian Islands for tbo solution of
the problem of cheap coffee for
tbo United States in the next fifty
years or more.
It is not generally known that
there will soon be a big annual
supply of coffee from the islands
for the markets of the world and
that when tho product begins to
bo shipped it will grow in a geo
metrical ratio as the now trees
come to maturity and as tho old
ones increase in productiveness.
Inquiries at the GuBtom-houso
in San Francisco a few days ago
revealed the fact that nearly all
tho coffee used in California
comes from Guatemala and Salva
dor. Aside irom that wuicu is
imported from those two countries
a little fancy Arabian and some
Java gets to this market, but the
quantity is almost inappreciable.
Mocha is so scarce as to hardly
deservo mention as being iu the
One of tbo best-informed men
in tho islam s on the coffee ques
(ion is W. G. Irwin, who is now
spending a few months iu this
City on a vacation. Speaking on
the subject a few days ago to a
Call reportor.be said:
"It is wonderful how the crown
lands fit for coffee have been tak
en np all "along tho road from
Hilo to the Volcano House np in
the lava districts. It has been
found that the open spaces or
open lands are even better than
the dense forests that were at first
cleared for the coffee plantations,
and thero must be fully 5000
good acres for the industry still
available. It in not a rood thine
for men with no money to embark
in, for they aro sure to fail. A
man who goes to the islands to go
into the coffee business ought to
have enough money to pay for
clearing his lands, and this will
cost about $10 an acre. The
planter then wants enough to live
on for five years until bis crop
bears, and enough to pay the in
terest on bis investment, for if he
comes with only a few hundred
dollars he is almost sure to fail in
"Soveral hundred thrifty young
men from all parts of the world
have settled in the rich districts
in the past four or five years, and
they will soon realize handsome
incomes from their investments.
This is true in a large measure of
tho Hamakua district rb well as
of the regions about the volcano.
"Hundreds of letters of inquiry
aro coming to the various business
houses of Honolulu from all parts
of tho world. Wo try to impress
on all who inquire that tho lauds
will bear the most thorough in
vestigation, but we tell people not
tq como without raonoy. ,1, sup-,
pose thero is fully S2,C00,00O now
invested in coffee on all tho isl
ands and a great deal more capital
is seeking investment. Thero is a
two-story mill in Honolulu for
cloaning tho borries and sorting
them into pearl, extra primo.piimu
and cullings. Things of this char
actor will develop more and more
as time runs on It will uot bo
long uutil more pooplo aro en
gaged in coffeo than in any other
enterprise in the islands. The
business is paitioularly attractive
to men uf small moans, for nearly
all the gorges and little valleys
aro snscoptiblo of cultivation for
coffee, whereas it requires u Im'v
tract of land to bo at any sorvico
in tho sugar business. In tho
islands thero nro a great many
mon in the ooffeo business with
ouly ton or twenty acres, and tho
returns from u small uroa are en
couraging enough to justify tho
man of family to undortako tho
vouture, with a pretty good hope
that ho will como out all right In
a few years.
"I do not want to give out too
much hopo or to induce pooplo to
come to tho islands and embark
in business they do not under
stand, but I am of the belief that
there is not a more encouraging
business anywhere now than the
coffee industry if it is undertaken
in a business-like way by an in
dustrious man with a fair amount
It is said that there will v be a
great deal ot coffee shipped 'from
the islands this year, and that
these shipments will be followed
by a great deal more next year,
for many trees come to maturity
in 1898. It is interesting to study
some of the characteristics of the
new industry with reference to
tho adaptability of the soils of
thn various districts to its success
Mono of the commercial features
of the Hawaiian .Islands are more
promising than the "development
of the coffee industry, which is
barely in its infanoy. With a
vast extent of rich and varied soil
the possibilities of coffee culture
are almost unlimited.
'While tha output for the entire
group of Hawaiian Islands is as
yet so small that few people away
irom wauu ana nawan nave over
lasted the beverage mado from
nativo berries, it is a fact that
niauy visitors at Hilo and Hono
lulu huve gone into ecstacies over
the delicious coffee made from
berries grown in the famous l'uua
and Koua districts.
President Wight of tho Wilder
Steamship Company has lately
been doing all in bis power to aid
Robert Bycroft and other pioneers
in the coffee industry to get
capital interested in raising the
berries, and ho has succeeded
fairly well. He and others who
have carefully- studied' the ques
tion believe it will not be many
years until coffee will be one of
the most important industries
probably the most important in
the islands. There are many
reasons why the vast tracts of
luxuriant acres adjacent to mighty
Eilauoa and the great lava beds
of Hawaii should be cleared and
onltivated for coffee.
The chief reason for tho great
promise of the Hawaiian coffeo is
that it requires less care in its
growing than in other parts of
the world where it is growing
with success. The soil is deep
and rich and tho seasons favor
both man and the coffee plant.
Tho great Hawaiian coffee bolts
are found, not amid swamps and
regions that terrify man by the
obstaolcs naturo throws in his
way, but in picturesque portions
of the island near the marvels of
Mauna Kea and not far from the
shadows of mighty Mauna Loa.
The climato is healthful and
thoroughly invigorating, and, as
there are no snakes or poisonous
insects in tho dense forests man
has nothing to fear oven amid the
fastnesses of tho somber tropical
forests that abound. Those for
ests, particularly iu the Hilo dis
trict about the Puna aud Kona
rogious, aro tho most picturesque
and wonderful in tho world. Ah
rich as the valleyB of tho Nile, as
luxuriant iu the riotous profusion
of growth aB Ceylon, they havo no
torrors of fevor uud malaria, veno
mous snukos aud deadly centi
pedes. It is well known to connois
seurs that such products as pass
for Mocha and Java in the Araori
can maikets aro not such at all,
and that thoso grades havo almoit
vanished from tho faco of tho
earth. Tho exports aro looking
toward Hawaii for tho great bulk
of superior grades of coffoo for
tho futuro, and it is tho thought
ful student of tho Hawaiian situa
tion who bpcs the possibilities in
coffeo culturo for tho next onera
tion. The piopor development of tho
coffeo tree requires frequent and
intelligent cultivation, ond for
this reason the industry affords a
good field for people of intelli
gence and systomatio habits.

has just been completed. It is the
new soasido cottage of Alexander
Young, Esq" which for beauty,
elegance and general convenience
is not equalled on tho beach. It
is' a two stoiy cottage, built close
to the wutor, possessing ovory
modern couveuieuco conducing to
ease and comfort.
The ground plan shows the ox
tremo dimensions of tho building
to be 70x70 feet, tho structure
resting on solid piers, extending
on the water side 8 feet into the

Dickey, the well-known architects,
from suggestions made by Mr.

selves. No particular style of
architecture is apparent, the
pans being drawn more to suit
the owner's idea and tho locality
rather than with any idea to ar
chitectural beauty. Tho result has
been more than satisfactory to all
Eutering Mr. Young's premises
situated at tho end of the lane
which marks the terminus of the
old Beach Road and traversing a
winding carriage way, one finds
himself at a side verandah of the
house, 8x21 feet. Thid opens into
the main reception room, 20x21

which a handsome stairway as
cends to the upper floor. This
hallway is 9x28 feet in size, and
leads on to the lauai. Tim room
is 35x45 feet iu size, tho largest
and prettiest lauai iu tho islands.
It is provided with eight windows,
each 5 feet wide, or double the 1
ordinary width, and fronts on the
ocean', being only separated from
the water by a verandah, lUx28
