TAPIOCA INDUSTRY IS
PROMISING FOR HAWAII
Profitable Business in Florida Thought

Castava culture In these Islands baa
been looked upon by a few people a
one of tlie profitable Industries to

Jfcoih the cassava root comes tapioca!
and Iirtefcnt years, tiio manufacture
of etarcrTfrom this plant has become a
flourishing Industry In Florida. V. H.
Harris ot Wahlawa and a Mr, Hlce on
Kauai have Interested themselves In
cassava. At tho request of the former,
Jaicd Smith wrote to the director of
the Florida Experiment Station, sub
mlttlng several qucstlonc to which he
received the following reply:
The demand for cassava starch
luring the past year lias
much exceeded the supply and the
market teems to be unlimited Inas
much as the consumer find that cas
tava starch Is much more economical
than either corn, wheat or potato
March and therefore, the cassava pro
duct displaces other starches as fast at
ll becomes available. Second, potato,
vheat and corn starches are Us com
petitors. The market conditions of
these thrc e different raw materials will
determine as to which becomes at any
Riven time the most active competitor.
Slilni, starch used In cotton manufac
ture mid laundry starches are the chief
Third: There arc four steam cas
sava March factories at present In
opciatlon In Florida with plans for one
mote inrge one perfected for erection
the coming season. No two are alike
In machinery or methods. The Indus
try and technical process Is now some
what experimental and each company
engaged In the same has developed ltt
own methods and form of machinery.
The general principle Involved, how
ever. Is the same with all and Is essen
tially Identical with that used for po
tato starch manufacture, the difference
being chiefly In the grater and dryer
uted. The original grating machinery
' was Imported from Germany and Is the
form used In that country for potato
grating. This form, has, however, been
discarded in all but one of the factories
and supplanted by machines of original
design, which cannot be duplicated out
aide, this change having been necessi
tated from a difference in tho cellular
btructuie of the cassava root as com
pared with tho potato tuber whereby
greater difficulty In destroying the cell
wall 'and liberating the starch grains
was experienced. Results from this
improvement show an increase In the
factory yield of commercial starch this
j car of from 10 to 20 per cent.
Fourth. The matter of varieties Is
still unsettled In Florida. Practically.
however, from a commercial stand
point, but one variety, and that the
white sweet cassava of Jamaica, Is
grown. There Is no other variety
grown as an actual source of raw ma
terial for the factories. Here at the
station we arc experimenting with
come dozen different varieties, but n
yet with Indefinite results.

ON MERCHANT STREET
Full Line of Fine Vehicles of
Every, Kind and Large f

The new carriage repository of the
Charles F. Herrlck Company, Limited'
on Merchant street, next to the Stan
aenwald bulldlnc was a busy nlace voa-
Irerday and today It '.was thrawa.opcn
to tho public yesterday nnd tho num
ber of callers Indicates that the place
will do n thriving business from the
word "go." High class vehicles of nil
kinds will be the slogan of the new
firm. Not only fine buggies, carriages,
surreys and road wagons, but the best
heavy carts, dra)g nnd wagons will be
carried in stock.
The stock of tho company Ik all new.
hnvlng licen purchased by Mr. derrick
who made a special trip to the east re
cently for that purpose. Ever since his
return, each boat has brought u con
signment of buggies. He hail sold a
large number before the crntrs were
rcmocd nnd before he looted his
business rooms. One cause of the
popularity of Mr, Derrick's line of
buggies Is the fact that he had them
made to order with especial attention
to details adapted to this country. The
store room Is full of file buggies.
The headquarters on Merchant street
have been fitted up In lino stle. A
glass front gives a good view of the
elegant stock from the street. Along

The brand of buggies Is that of the
manufacture of the Columlms lluggy
Company, popular the world over.

FAIR FORTUNE TELLER
ftM)M WAILUKU TOWN
Walluku, July 13. There Is nt present In Walluku a half-Chinese
girl by tho poetic name Of Llllnoe, who claims relationship to .Ma-
dame Pclc. " ' J " ' '' ' ' "
She assumes tho role of a big kahuna and Is wry much sought
after by natives and some baolcs, so rumor su;s.
According tu current report I.IIIuoe claims that It was due to her
Incantations that tho waters of Kahului bcuch rose high enough to al-
low the schooner Alice Kimball tu slide off tho corn! reef as easily as
she did a fortnight ago. Llut whether she got any of tho $300 paid to
Pilot Hob English for bis services In floating the schooner, no one
knows, and fair Llllnoe does not even state that she was paid for
That she Is believed to be a ble kahuna by the Ignorant natives of
Walluku and vicinity goes without saying, and Llllnoo hirself feels
that she lias tho entire confidence, ot her people. Even the so-called
upper society Hawalians havo Bought her services In matters eternal.
On the Fourth of July Llllnoo was at the race track to personally see
that the horses she had declared would ba the winners would bo vie-
torlous, so that her followers would not lokc. She even approached
one of the Federal officers nnd drew his attention to tho fact that all
tlioso who had consulted her the night before were coining money
and why was be so foolish as not to consult her and make bis fnm-
Ily prosperous and happy, besides leaving enough to support poster-
Ity. Walluku Is a lino field for kahunas and Llllnoe Is aware of that
fact, for sho looks with envy at tho lino homo surrounded by big
taro patches, owned by a retired knbunn who It Is claimed used to
be paid high figures by leading politicians to bnvo their political
fortunes told them before election day. And It is most astonishing
to find many of tho so-called educated Hawalians putting tiny faith
In such a thing as a kahuna, or sorcerer,
him and he recommended that the Sen-
late adjourn over until Thursday. At
that time he would communicate with
the Legislature nnd stato to tho Sen
ate and House just whit course he In
tended to take."
When the Senate adjourned, Mr.
Kalauokalanl made the following state
ment to a Uulletln reporter "The Act
ing Governor wishes to examine care
fully In the two bills presented to him
and, from the way he spoke, I should
Judge that there Is a possibility of .111
extension of six days of the present
session, In order that the bills may re
ceive the careful examination devilled
necessary, tes, there Is some danger
ot the Acting Governor vetoing the
bill. If he does this, there Is no doubt
whatever that we will pass It over hli
The fact that several of tho Senators
are, leaving Honolulu makes Mr. Ku
laiiokals'lil's piedlctlon In cate of a
veto Iifck rnther dubious. Dr. IUtssel
Is already In Illlo and docs not liliputl
returning. Messrs. J. T. Urown Kaohl
nnd 1'arls left today und Mr. Ilaldwln
leaves by this afternoon s steamer for
Maul. This leaves In Honolulu Just n
bare quorum so that, if all members
are present, ecry vote will have to bn

Very rcspectfullj ,
JAS. H. UOYD.
Superintendent ot Public Works,
Theie was much discussion on this
point. Mr. Achl was the first to speak.
He said that the government should
pay Its Just debts and, It It was as Mr
Boyd said, that the credit of the Ter
ritory was at stake, ho would be will
ing to sit six days longer and pass an
extra appropriation for the payment of
the debt. Mr. Achl then branched off
Into tho Irregular way in which the
appropriation bills had been presented
to the Governor. He said that tho
House bad not received any notifica
tion from the Senate giving notlro of
the action taken. However, vi top of
this fact, the enrollment committee of
the conference committee had tnken
the bills to the Acting Governor. Ho
would be In farur of recalling the Ap
propriation bills. The chairman of the
enrollment committee ot tbe House
had been Ignored In the matter.
Mr, Kalauokalanl, ihalrnian of the
conference committee stated that the
House committee on enrollment ot the
House had been consulted but that the
members had refused to net together
with the sub-committee or the enroll
ment committee. The next best thine
had then been done.
Mr. Achl Interposed that the House
enrollment comm!ttno had been per
fectly right In refusing to act, since the
House bad not received any notifica
tion from the Senate.
Mr. Ilaldwln ndmittcd that there had
been some Irregularity but said that
there was no doubt the bills were In
the bands of the Acting Governor
Both houses hail paiwtl the bills und
he did not believe that n slight techni
cality like that pointed out by Mr, At 111
would annul the bills.
Mr. Achl accepted the situation and
thru moed to lay on the table, the
(hmmunk-atlon from thu Superinten
dent of Public Works. This cnrrl?d
At this point, the Senate adjourned
over until Thursday at 10 o'clock.

At the conference between commit
tees from each branch of the Legisla

occasion to express his views upon the
