It wns n representative gather

brokers nt the .stockholder!' meet

Company tliin morning. Tho vice
president ot the company, B. F.
Dillingham, was in tho chair.
The roll call u n tedious tifTair
nnd took about lifno i luiimtos.
L. A. Tluui-ton win tin first
spanker, lie spjka in favor of tbo
increase of the capital Htock flay
ing that nt tbo present time about
one-half the holders of it-sesjable
stock were paying n't-essmonts
this ou account of tho lujunctiou
issued ngniuBt tho "Dillingham
stock." Of tbo assessable fctook
out at present only ubout s-100,000
remained to bo called in. It is no
cessary for tho compiuiv to he
ablo to place its bands on a largtj
amount of money to continue tbo
work of tbo plantation. Ic would
bo necessary for tbo company to
increaeo its capital now or next
vear to raiBO more money and
li 3 del not seo why it should not bo
dono uow. If tho case were takun
to tbo Supremo Court it might
bo a year before tbo dilliuulty was
settled and the plantation would
bo losing greatly by the delay.
Tbo inoreaso of tbo capital would
iucreaso the credit of tho cornpa
ny. In tho ca39 of the leversal of
Judgo Perry's dooftio'u by the
Supremo Court tboro were thirty
two other cases yet to ha beard
before the caso whs tioully eoitled
and it might take years and tbo
company bo greatly hampered and
embarrassed in tbo meauwbilo.
Tbo compromise would immo
diately sottlo tho trouble 13v the
iucroaso of the stock the prcsont
holders would have one tjiird loss
to pay in assessments aud this in
itsolf would raoau a great deal.
Castla & Cooke as hgeuts are
about gotting to the end of their
ropo as theio is but flOU.OOO at
presont under tbo prevailing con
ditions to draw fioai. All this
need of money would be obviated
by tho issuo.
W. It. Castle askd the man
nger of the plantation what the
immediato ueeds for money would
W. W. Goodale, manager, stated
that tho payment for tho mill
would bo 8oU0,000 and fi r pump
250,000 with no inomo from
crop until Uhll.
E, D. Tenney stated that bo
bad beard of mauv protests
against tba proposed action on the
street and bo would like to have
the kickers get up in tho mooting
nud express their views. Castle
it Cooke would not foicotho issuo,
rather would they wait until tho
interested parties were oouvorted
to tho firm's way ofthinkiug.
li. F. Dillingham stated that bo
wanted the situation discussed
and settled in tbo beet way for the
tbo greatest number and that
nuinbnr was not "number ono."
J, A. Maroon spoke against tho
issuance of tho stock.
John Ena said bo disogreed

Opinions of Some of Prominent Men In
Regard to It.
Win. G. Irwin Says Contract Labor Is Pau
T, R. Walker Thinks Minister of
Finance Is Needed Here.
Tboro has been much talk of
Into among tbo planters as to tho
present statm nf Minister Damon
in respect to bis mission to Italy.
Tbo alternative offered him by tho
government at Washington has
placed a rather knotty problem in
his way. So mo of the planters
were seen today and this i whnt
they have to say:
Wm. ,G. Irwiu If it is a ques
tion of free labor I am in favor of
Mr. Damon going over to Italy.
As you kuow, tho days ot con
tinot labor iu tbeso Islands aro
numbered and it would bb U3 well
to try Italian labor as any otlier.
You see it is reall" only an ex
periment. 1 might eay hern that
lam very, much in favor of Por
tuguoio Hilar. This bis already
pro veu most effectual horn. Of
course, Mr. Damon has already
grasped tbo situation nud will
know best what to do from tbo
instruction Iih bns nlready re
Oriralfron Washington. Ho will
know just what to do.
T. It Walker "From the pro
sent position I would Ray that the
best thing Mr. Damon can do is
to come home. I feel that wo
need him more bore ns Minister of
Financo than as au agent to Italy
to secure Italian labor. When it
corner, to tbo matter of labor 1
would say that, sine it is now a
matter of froe labor, by nil means
procure such labor of pissibb'.
Sotneono olso cou'd take Mr. D i
mon's placo and be could come
back here to attend to his duties
P. C Joues L am no longer
connected with tbo Planters As
sociation but, of course, I am in-turt-hted
in what iutorests them.
When Mr. Damon went to Italy
1 supposed it was to prncuro freo
labor. I did not thiuk ho intend
to try for coutrnct labor. 1 sup
posed further that bo was going
ns a private citizen. Freo labor
Us tho only thing we can have
hero in tbo futuro.
E. D. Tonnoy I have not
thought much of the mattor. I
suppose if Mr. Damon wauts to
go on to Italy in an official capa
city bo cau. He is paying his owu
expenses. I have not studied the
situation carefully yet aud cannot
thoroforo oxpreBS much of au
Special Agent Sewall when ask
ed concorning Minister Damon's
mission said, "I bavo always folt
that if contract labor wero to bo
continued, it would bo much bet
tor to bavo wbito labor than Asia
tic. If Americans cannot be ob
tained, Europeans uro tbo next
best. I was sorry to lobr.ii of tho
decision on Minister Damon's
F. A. Sohaefer I think it is
tho best thing for Mr. Daraou to
continuo right on bis mission to
Italy. It would bo foolish to have
him como baok now. Lot him
find out tbo present attitude of
tbo Italian Government and then
lot him sond back communications
to Honolulu. It will bo timo
onough thon to como to somo de
cision in tbo matter. It makos
no difforonco what Mr. Damon's
orders aro from tho United States
Govornment. It will certainly do
no barm to find out tbo stato of
affairs in Italy in regard to labor.
Mr. Damon need onter into no ne
gotiations until bo boars from

Tomorrow night in the Inst up

Critic i-ays of Clay Clement's
drain at it) power.
"Mr. Clay Clomnt came to tho
Lyceum last Tuesday evening, un
heralded by loud mouthed press
agents and Hiring potters, eutiro
ly unknown to tho theater loving
people of the city. Ho opened his
ouKitgomeut in "Tbo Balls' ton
t-mnlt audience, mauy of whom
woro thon on p-tssi's. Wednes
day morning tho young tragedian
awoke to find hiiiinulf ruinous in z
night. Detroit is one of the first
large cities in which ho has ap
peared a a star, aud his recep
tion should bo a source of much
satisfaction to himself and his
managers, proving as it does, tho
fact, that his bucC"S hs a player
with legitimate aspirations is as
sured by th warm widoom given
him hero. Mr. Clomont, although
a young man, gives evident' by
liis work, of suporior ability,
coupled with much lwd study.
Tbo crudilio often doleoted in tho
work ot so joung an actor in
Shakopnarean rop, are not lound

tions Tho man is a student, sub

but is always the character ho
would portray. Tbero is room on
tho stago today for a man who
would follow in the footsteps of
