Big Coal Chute

According to nil Indications, a

Is the next big undertaking of tho
Inter-Island Steam Navigation Com
pany. When Manager Kennedy went

ago It was stated tnat he would com

extent of looking Into the coal chuto

While tho Oceanic boats have for
more than a year past been bringing
back from thconst great numbers of
Portuguese and Spaniards, It appears
that their arrival Is not fraught with
ns great Joy to tho sugar-planters as
was generally expected. As n matter
of fa(t. It nppaars that tho majority
of these people have been getting
trips to Hawaii at tho expense of tho
planters, but that they have no In
tention of making good In return by
i going to work on the plantations.
A little over n year ago the atten
tion of the I'lanters' Association was
called to tho fact that there were
many Portuguese and Spanish labor
eiB?in San Francisco, 'Oakland and
thuf vicinity who were dissatisfied
with the conditions provaillng there.
They had left tho bunny shores of
Hawaii attracted by hope of higher
wageB, but things did not turn out
as thoy had expected, und soon they
began to long for tho lleshpots of Ha
waii. Acting on this Information tho
Planters' Association decided to get
these laborers back to Hawaii, and
agreed to pay their steamer fares to
Honolulu. Since this was done a
largo number of Portuguese, Span
lards and even soma Porto Hlcans
iiavo availed themselves of this of
fer, and laige numbers of them havo
been coming on overy Oceanic boat
which has arrived hero ulnce then.
Thus tho Alameda on her last two
trips lias brougnt about n hundred of

this port. It Is nnturnlly of Impor
tance to the company that It adopt
modern methods in handling Its co.il,
which bids fair to be more in demand
as tho years go by.
Manager Kennedy stated this
morning that ho had not made any
leport to his directors nn his trip
abroad and would like to mako his
leport before talking for publication.
He neither nOlrmcd nor denied tho
stfiry of tho tonstiuctton of tho coal
and wcro plvcn tickets.
It was found, however, that tho
men who arrived wero not at all tho
V.fnd of people who had been oxpect
ed. They were, most of them, store,
keepers, clerks and such, and did de
sire nothing less thnn to Beek employ
ment on tho plantations. As a con
sequence only n very small percent
age of them over applied to tho plant
ers for work.
In the meantlmo tho suspicion of
the Planters' Association had been
nroubed, and an Investigation of the
matter was made. This revealed tho
fact that tho majority of tho arrivals
had come to Hawaii merely for a
trip, In many cases only to spond the
winter and to leturn to tho Coast
when tho weather thoro grow milder,
the trip being n very cheap affair, as
the planters were paying passago one
way. Furthermore, It was found
thnt In somo cases tho tickets given
by tho Association had been sold by
tho peoplo who had received them, to
other parties. Thus, for Instance, a
nf.in who, was satisfactory in overy
way, would present himself to tho
Coast agents of (he Association and
obtain his ticket. This ho would
then sell to a person wno was abso
lutely undeslrablo ns a laborer, who
wanted to go to Hawaii for any pur
pose, except that of working on the

Tho wlde-awako and energetic
qualities of the Chamber of Com
merce are thoroughly demonstrated
by the accomplishment of Its latest
Plan, namely: that to gain Important
Information with regard to condi
tions nnifUrndo opportunities in for
eign Asiatic ports through addresses
by tho American Consuls stationed
there, whenever they pass through
Honolulu. Knowledge of this kind
will, of course, be authentic and may ,
provo in many cases to bo of great
value to the local business conimu-.
Thnt this plan, on which tho otn
ccrs of the Chamber have been work
ing quietly for somo time, has been
thoroughly successful Is shown by
tho following extract from a letter
received recently from Secretary
Wood, In which ho describes n visit
which ho nnd Governor Frear paid to
Assistant Secretary of Stato llacon:
"Mr. Wood stated that owing to
her position at the crossroads of tho
Pacific, Honolulu expected to be
como a groat clearing-house for trnns
Pacific traffic and her merchants and
business mon generally were anxious
to get Into closer touch with the
.leading foreign ports of the Pocltlo
and -would thoroughly nppreclatu
meeting and consulting with the dif
ferent members of tho Consular ser
vlco of tho United States as they
might journey to nnd fro from their
stations via Hawaii.
"While wo were In his office, tho
Secretary called his stenographer ana
dictated n letter to bo sent to every
Consular ofllcor btatloned at points
tributary to the Pacific, requesting
them to notify tho Honolulu Cham
ber of Commerce, of any Intended trip
across the Pacific, giving probable
date of arrival at Honolulu, with tho
request that, If possible, so to nr
inngo mntters that they endeavor to
remain over ono steamer; otherwise
that, having notified tho Chamber,
thoy bo prepnre'd to address our bus
iness mon upon trade conditions and
business opportunities In tho district
represented by them during tho stay
of their steamer In "port."
Wood stated further In his letter
that tho action of tho Chamber In se
curing borings nt Pearl Harbor was
meeting with tho warmest apprecia
tion from the officials nt Washington.
Governor Frear was accomplishing
much good during his visit nt tho
Wood also stated that there was a
growing sentiment in favor of the
granting of a subsidy of $4 a ton for
never fail, now-a-days, to make out
Iheir wills; they know the value of
their wealth. But tho man of small
estate frequently does and he
should be more careful than the oth
er. After his heirs get through pay
ing attorney and court fees, there's
very little left for them.

Hon vhlch Is at present being looked
Into by tho Naval authorities, and It
lu probable that on this will havo
something to do with regard to the
decision as to whether tho entlro fleet
under tho command of Admiral Kvans
will bo sent to Honolulu.
It was learned today that Inquiry
had been madu with tho Metropolitan
Moat Co. vlth regard to how much It
would bo ablo to furnish In the way
of meat as well as other provisions.
Manager Wnller stated that ho did
not feel at liberty to glvo out tho lot'
tcr ho had received nor tho reply
which ho had made thereto. Ho stat
cd, however, that ho figured on being
ablo to furnish from forty to fifty
head of cattlo a day. This, It would
I'eem, would bo sufficient to feed a
fleet oven as largo as that which Is
now on Its way around South America.
That It Is probablo that tho entlro
sleet will bo sent to tho Islands Is ap
parent from the last letter of Secre
tory Wood to President Job. F. Mor
nan of tho Chamber of Commerce. In
this Wood,stntes that "all Indications
seem to point to tho entlro fleet pav
