THB NUW PLANTATIONS.
Extended space Is given In this Issue
to a riport on tho Mclltvdo plantation,
cne of the new properties of Hawaii's
ixpandltiK sugar ludustry. Aside from
the local peculiarities, special prob
lems thnt have to bo met In each dis
trict given over to sugar production
Jkllrjilo Is tvplcal of the plantations
brought Into existence tlncc the estab
lishment of stable government war
ranted expansion bejond the old time
All these properties are tafc In
vestments. While It is impossible to
guai anteo enormous specific returns
lor these plantations, t.ny more thnn
auj other new Industry, the character
of the soli, water supplj, capable man
ngemint, nnd the outlook of the sugar
n'arkit so far as capable business men
can forecast, all givo i remise, that Ha
waii's new plantations will keep well
up to the standards, .'or good returns,

properties Man) a dollar v. Ill be lost
In enterprises of the Mainland which
If placed In Hawaiian sugar securities
would become n source of a splendid
Hawaii nt tho present time Is labor
ing under a financial und Industrial
scare as depressing as the boom of '03
was Inflating;. The pendulum lias
swung to an opposite extreme. Any
failure to obtain water In tho exact
spot selected when work wns begun has
been spread broadcast as threatening
the success of the property. Any fail
ure to take off the exact number of
tons estimated has been exaggerated
Into a promise of failure. Every derog
atory statement to shake confidence
has been caught up with ns much
avidity as was a chance favorable word
of former dns that sent the stock up
live points at every sale of Ave shares.
Having allowed themselves to run wild
In speculation ninny ire now going as
wildly In the opposite direction urged
b foolish flnnnclnl fear. These nrc .ill
details that experience has taught to
to necessary for humanity to adjust
Itself to salm consideration. The his
tory of Ewa, the banner plantation of
the Islands was not without Its period
of depression when men hurried to get
rid of their holdings on hearing tho
report that tho water found In certain
wells was brackish.
The new plantations are going ahead,
however, overcoming dllHcultles, meet
ing new problems promptly, steadily
advancing in valuo and proving the
certainty of satisfactory returns on tho
Investment. Investors who alio them
selves to he frightened by bear move
ments In the stock market which often
have no connection with conditions on
the plantation or plantations Involved
are likely to find themselves In a mora
distressing position than those ITTey
contemplate when listening to deroga
In tho office of tho Collector of In
ternal Kcvenuc, the force of deputies
Is busy footing up tho totals bf busi
ness as required by the department at
tho closo of tho fiscal year. Phil It.
Whclnn, cashier of the office is 111 at
bis home. A, M, Webster, the ganger,
has been called in to atslst In working
off tho pile of accumulated duties.
Chief Deputy II, D. Couzens, a public
official who never Bleeps, Is a trltle
busier than usual,
While tho regulations of the depart
ment prohibits tho giving out of
figures by subordinated, tho Informa
tion is vouched, that tho Revenue
office for Hawaii has taken In a lot of
coin the past jear. One thing of
which all the hojs are pioud, Is a let
ter from tho Treasury Department,
which informs them that tho Hawaiian
office has been entered In tho records
as belonging to Grade, No. 1. This
means thnt Us affairs and accounts; and
business ha3 been udmlnlstcred with
such accuracy and merit that tho office
Is placed In the first 'grade. This re
flects credit upon Collector Chamber
lain and each and every deputy In tho
Wooley's Address at
Central Union Church
Ono of tho most effective temperance
discourses nnd n wholesome sermon as
well, was the address of John OtWool
ley at the Cential Union church Sun
day afternoon. The speaker was fa
vored with a largo audience which ap
predated the dignified, logical and wit
ty speaker, as proved o) frequent out
bursts of applause.
The text was from the paittblo of tho
sower Tho discouragements which
beset the piolilliltlon cause wcro com
pared to thoso wlhch surrounded tho
1 sower who went foith to sow," Ho
charged the slow progress ot me cause
to the Inferior tltlzensnlp among Chris
tian people. Their courage falls when
It comes to tho ballot. Ho urged all to
he bold In standing up for convictions
nnd. voto for the suppression of the
evil of Intcmpoiauco, even though this
might bo sowing seed a hundred )cars
iilicad of time.
1 f I
Comlmtsloner Taylor received in the
Kinau mall the following letter giving
full details of the Havvill forest, Dro:1
Mr. Wroy Tailor, Honolulu.
My Dear Sir: 1 have ourg of tho
10th Inst., regarding the lire nt Kukal
au " I have been during tho week,
twice, at the scene, lust came from
there vesterday, The lire on lower
section, after a great de.il of hard work,
is I may say, under control, although,
cause, to be settled todis by "Coroner's
smouldering lire all ovlr ho place?lho
soil burning down to a depth of twelve
or fourteen Inches, and requires a gang
constantly watching, as a second (Ire
mny now take place over the ground of
the first. The green cane tops and
grass which did not get entirely de
molished by the first lire, nrc now dry
and In condition for burning again.
The fire which wenf towards the forest
is still raging nnd some eighty men
wcro nt work trjlng to head it off the
coffee patches, considerable of which
has got burned up. It Is very hard in
form any approximately correct idea,
although In quoting A Horner's re
marks I believe I am near the present
area which has become denuded.
The fire was started on the south
west side of Ookala plantation, through
Inqust. A fierce wind blowing nt the
Inquest. A fierce wind blowing nt the
time fanned the flames which passed
through a narrow belt of wild forest
nnd caught the Ookala cane of fifteen
months growth inside of one and u
half hours. This field of some eight
to clghty-flvo aeics was demolished.
The fire increasing In sperti traveled
southwest to a small ncin of Horner's,
cleaned it up, forty notes of fine cane
over virgin soil. Every effort was
made to keep the (Ire on the Hllo side
of n large gulch there, but of no avail,
It Jumped over 200 feet nnd caught
more Cane, In short, It destroed ubout
slxtv-flvo acres of Horner's cane, con
siderable coffee, etc. Besides a cost of
12000 for extra labor used during the
paBt week In suppressing the fire, the
loss Ih estimated at (.'3,100 to the Hor
ners. It Is rather serious, nnd thnt
more particularly from n "tramp fire."
There were up to jesterday approxi
mately about $00 acres, of forest burn
eil, chiefly Ohea nnd Ko.V, w Ith n slight
mixture of sumach. I lo not think that
nil of tho trees on this area will die, n
man) of them me onlj scroched, but
there arc n great number of them, so
sick and sore headed, h.tIng been
heated to their tips, that the planta
tions have eordnood for years to come
Should rain not come on at an early
date nnd dampen down tho grass, etc.
In forest, I would hesitate to say when
or where the fire may stop, and do not
feel surprised if it finally gets through
to Walmca, if no change takes place
In the weather, righting a fire on
top Is nil right but when It gets under
ncath It's pretty hot, nnd this Is tho
roughest Arc I have seen on Hawuli,
It Is hard to estimate tho damage on
forest, COO acres or trees suitable for
railroad tics or fence posts or beams of
any kind, trees running from ono to
two and a half diameter at ten feet
from tho ground Is to make the least
of it, valuable timber nnd a growth of
many jenrs. Thoso values apart from
the climatic Influence on surrounding
country are considerable, and will foot
up a nice round sum. Trusting you
can gather from above a fair Idea o'
Yours very truly.
