F, Buchholtz on Prospects
IN KONA DISTRICT
After Railway is Built
Among tho business men from tho
other Islands who aro Bojournlng In
tbo city at tho present thno Is' F.
Uuchholtz, of Kona, who for tho past
six years has mado 1Mb homo In that
most delightful district.. Ho Is hero
for a short business trip and Is a guest
at tho Arlington. Llko all peoplo who
have lived in Kona for a time, Mr.
Uuchholtz Is very enthusiastic ovef
tho district's prospects nnd uellevcs
tho recent Incorporation of tho Kona
llallwny Company So bo tho starting
point of unbounded prosperity for tho
garden spot of tho Ulg Island. Tho
gentleman wns seen by a Hulletln re
porter Saturday afternoon, and this Is
what ho had to say:
Good Outlook for Railway.
"Th6 ICona Railway has as good
prospects as any other in tho country,
not excepting your own hero on this
Uland. Of course, It Is not expected
that tho railway will pay very largoly
during the first fow years, for thero
nro not enough people In the district
yet, and. besides that, the railway will
have to open up a largo nmouni or land
to settlers beforo it can worK on a
paying basis. However, alt this Is
bound to come, and I consider tho
Kona Hallway one of tho very safest
and oho of the very nest Investments
that has been nut beforo tho nconlo hi
u long time.
Trade Will Increase.
"Tho moment the road Is built, trado
will Increaso and this Increase will bo
without limit. Why do I say this?
Simply hecnusa from personal experi
ence In the district I know just what
can bo dono there. Any man can
make a living In Kona by farming. I
enn do It nnd havo done It under un
favorable circumstances nnd with
hired labor. It stands to reason, thou.
that a man working for lilmsclf nnd.
under favorable circumstances hns a
very rosy outlook.
"You ask mo what classes of people
will emigrate to Kona and I answer
that there will bo two, clasHcs. The
first will bo thu laboring class or farm
ers nnd tho second will bo mo million
aires. I have already dealt with tho
former. Let us turn our attention to
tho latter for a brief space.
Travel Made Easy.
"With tho railway comnloted. tho
bcadtlea of Kona will bo mado avail
able, a stato of altalrs which exists
only to a rcry limited extent nt tho
picscnt time. Kona will bo turned
Into a vcrltabln winter resort, to which
rich peoplo from all over the Mainland
will Hock In great numbers. There Is
certainly no bettor placo in creation
than Kona when It Is a case of some
one sullerlng from nervousness, weak
lungs, weak heart and tbo like. All
Konn has needed aro the facilities of
easy transportation, llrst from Hono
lulu to Konn, and then tnrough tho
district mentioned. Tho railway will
solve ono part of the problem. As to
transportation, that will como later.
"In connection with this, I might
glvo you n still broader view of tho
possibilities that havo been opened up
In Kona by tho building of the railway,
by pointing out that at somo time not
lar in tho future, tho Hllo nnd Kona
Railways will come together, making
It possible to take a trip between Hllo
nnd Katlua without stopping.
Hllo to Kallua.
"You can very well aeo what this
means. Hllo peoplo wishing to reach
Honolulu may rldo across the Island
on tho railway and tako a steamer ut
Kallua, thus avoiding tho'msagrccablo
till) that Is Invariably experienced
along tho Hnmakua coast. Then, too,
It will mako it possible for Kona to
send tons of fresh fruit -and vegetable
to Hllo dally! It Is a well-known Tact
that that placo has .been suffering for
years from tho lack of theso products,
You see, then, that tho people who cast
In their lot with Konn will havo the
Honolulu and Hllo markets open for
tl.elr products which, with tho quick
ti asportation by water and rail, will
Ir.euro a steady and over Increasing
"I want you to understand beforo I
proceed further thnt what I am saying
to you I know will como nhoirt. I have
been u closo student of the soils and
climatic conditions of Konn for tho
post six years and I Know from threo
yenrs" experience In tho planting of all
manner of useful plants and trees. Just
what thero Is iu It for tho settler.
Anything Will Grow.
"Without exaggeration, you can
ffi !lr? ' C WlitfM. from v'hkh' thc ld rcnowncd Cyrus i

Invented Is lu'iinouucoa, bj engineers to lie marvel.
rnUe anything with roots In the Dis
trict of Kona. The soil Is extraordi
narily rich and tho varying altitudes
mako It possiblo to grow the plants of
the temperate zono as welt as those of
tbo tropics. Tho climate Is Invariably
gcod and there aro three things which
we hnvo not wind, mud nnd dust.
Thero wns a big windstorm In Kona
not long ago and a great deal of dam
ago was dono, but bucIi a storm conies
about once In fifty yenrs, as tho old
natives win ten you.
Land In Abundance.
"Outside of tho two sugar estates in
Konn, thero aro about 25,000 acres suit
ablo for tho cultivation of sugar. With
tho railway established, small farmers
can easily make a living at planting
sugar cano it they feel so Inclined.
They can mako n living nnywncro Iu
Agents To Buy Products.
i "I have dwelt quite extensively on
the field In Kona for settlers. The
' raising of vegetables, fruits and the
llko for tho market taken ns a fore
gone conclusion, how nro theso prod
ucts to he disposed of? In n talk with
ono of tho promoters on the'Malnland,
I learned Hint It was the Intention of
the Incorporators of tho railway to
send agents to Kona to buy, from
.time to time, the pioducts of the va
rious farmers. If n man has a half
dozen eggs tho agent will buy them.
If tllcre Is a half-bushel of potatoes the
agent will liny this too. livery farm
er who has anything for Sale, no mat
ter how small the quantity, will bo
visited, and when this collecting tour
has been completed the products will
bo bunched together nnd sent to the
various commission houses for dispo
sal. In this wny the farmer will be
saved nil the trouble of getting what
he has ready for shipment nnd tho va
rious transactions that must b- gone
iimuiiKii in cuiinccuou incrowiin. nil
Sides this, ho will be pnld n good prlca
and n unlfurm ono and he will always
have a market,
i Experiment Station.
! "Among theso many benellts tho
railway people arc calculating on Is
.the establishment of a private exper
iment station In Kona and the employ
i ment of men who know the conditions
' if tho district. Thus settle will bo
able to learn Immediately upon arrival
what they can do nnd what rules they
must follow in order to obtain the best
tesults, instead of wasting a couple or
threo years in tho making of experi
ments ulong different lines, Is It not
worth tho whllo for people who mako
their living by farming to givo Konn a
trial, particularly when tho Konn Itnll
wny Company, backed up by men of
undoubted business Bagaclty and fore-
signi, oners such inducements?
An Ideal Home.
"The development of Kona as an
Ideal -homo lor small farmers and a
resting place for tourists, Is what they
nro niter, and the men behind the rail
, way proposition know just what they
arc doing, for, to uso a slang phrase,
, 'they have all been there before,
;mnny's tho time.' They Intend to glvo
the Islands In general and Kona In
particular such an advertising as has
never beforo been attempted. People
on mo .Mainland win surely bo charm
ed by what Is promised, for tho plain
truth about Kona Is biiilUleiit to charm
"You ask mo for something about
my own experience In Kona. I will
glvo you Just u fow points, not to show
what I hnvo accomplished, but by wny
o," Illustrating what a prospect the dkv
Fine Celery Raised.
"Perhaps you will bo surprUcd If I
tell you I can rulso tho very finest of
celery at my place, which la situated
above Huopiilon nnd about 1630 foot
nbove thy lovel of the sen. Such, how
ever, Is the fact. I havo kept celery
In tho ground for n year and It has
never spoiled. This Is another point
In fnvor of tho soil of tho district.
Grains and Nut.
"Not long ago, I thought I would try
tome of tho grains, and so planted a
few pounds of wheat, barley and oats.
Theso not oul grew but nourished
and boro wonderfully. Thero was no
cultivation whatever. I simply throw
tho seeds carelessly upon n rather
rocky unused part of my place.
"My pecan, walnut nnd swtjet almond
trees are growing, nnd tho last has
already borne fruit. Tho other nut
trees nro growing to bo preat big trees
and will, I havo no doubt, bear fruit.
Olive Trees Thrive.
"You havo heard a great deal said
about olive trees and'the unsuccessful
attempts that have been made nt grow
ing them. Well, I have found no trou
ble. I now bavo twenty 3-year-old
Irnna nli.,,,1 Inn l. I.li. .. ..

Figs of Fine Flavor.
"When Paul Isenberg visited my
place In Konn not long ago, I showed
film a native fig tree which was grow
ing In nluong other plauts, and he, nil
eXtellSll'n tl-livntnt hmnminnml I. .1...
finest specimen ho had ever seen In
any country. Tho tree was simply la
den with fruit, the Havoc of which Is
unequaled by auy tig In tho world.
Protessor Koebele has also visited my
place nnd has seen the fig nud all other
irult trees that grow there. Professor
Koebele pronounced my place as being
tho finest fruit estato In the Islands.
