Kallua, Hawaii. July 30. A meeting
was held today by the Kona, Japanese
Coffee Planters' Association at (heir
complete coffee cleaning plant In the
town of Kallua, for the purpose of dis
cussing the' present and future status
of the Industry,
On account of the present low price
of coffee the planters of Olaa, Puna,
and other coffee belts of the Island of
Hawaii have plowed up the coffee trees
and turned tho fields Into growing su
gar cane. Notwithstanding all this
the Japanese 'coffee planters of the
Kona district have an abiding faith
and have been expecting that the reso
lution of Senator Paris would take
effect before long and that several ob
stacles which have bad a tendency to
lower the price of that useful bever
age, would soon be removed, and that
their wprk of many years would al
last be rewarded.
In 1899 th'e Japanese planters of Ko
na built their, cleaning mill at Kallua
whclh is supplied with the very latest
mechanical appliances, and which wlll
commence operations again In the near

ADVOCATES KILLING CATTLE
TO PRESERVE THE TIMBER
Herd of 1003 Head on Maui Plan
tation Will be Extermi
nated for Thi3
11. A. Isenberg, acting manager fori
Hackfcld & Co., believes that radical;
steps should be taken 'n the nutter of ,
tho preservation and propagation of
fOl'ests In the Hawaiian Islands. This
belief has taken practical form In the
policy of tho management of the Plo-j
neer Mill Company on Maul, llellev
ing that pasturing cattle in the forests'
Is one of the chief causes of the ex-'
termination of trees, L. Ilarkhnusen '
tho manager of that plantation advo
cates exterminating the cattle. Ills j
view Is upheld by the management and
as a consequence tho 1000 head of cat
tle on the lands of this company ulll
be gradually butchered and fed to plan
tation laborers. Tho herd will not bo
replenished, but will be wiped off tho
faco of the earth hoof nnd horn.
'Mr. Isenberg says that any one who
has lived here even ten years cannot
fail to notice the devastation that has
gone on In the forests with tbs con
sequent ilaniagn from decreased rain
fall. "The chief cause of the damage
to tho forests Is cattle.' hn continued.
nnd the herds should cither be killed
off or fenced in.
"The first thing necessary Is the
appointment of a forcs'er by the Fed
eral government, under the I'nltcd
States Forestry Iliireuu. There is ns
much need of a forester lu these Isl
ands as there Is for n ph)slclan In any
community. If we had such nn offi
cial ho would bo of Inestimable, ser
vice In preventing further destruction
of forests and in the ci eat Ion of new
stretches of timber laud. Thero are
large areas In all parts of tho Islands,
which can bo set out to arlous kinds
of valuable trees. Tho Influence of
forests upon the rainfall Is well un
derstood nnd the Importance of the
subject to these Islands cannot be over
estimated. Tho Kinross will go up to tin. Navy
slip No. 2 this afternoon. The i:it-u

Kallua, Hawaii, July 30. A fow days

The shark was hauled alongside of
