Leasehold Hill favorably re-
ported: alio (Fish Hatchery
Bill. I KUHIO.
The above cablegram was
received from thn Delegate to
Congress this morning, and
Indicates that Hawaii Is com
ing In for her share of good
things fiom Congress, oven If
tho Pearl Harbor proposition
has been hard hit.
The Leasehold Hill Is one ot
th matters taken up by Gov
ernor Kre.ir during his recent
visit to the National Capitol.
The Organic Act as It now
stands provides that tho Ter
ritorial Government may not
leaso agricultural land for n
longer term than (Uo cara.
The disadvantages ot this are.
oblous Lessees do not wish
to tako land for so short n
term when in somo casos It
takes a good share of tho time
to get the land under cultiva
tion and icady to yield crops.
An effort was Ilrst mado to
get the time for which agri
cultural land might be leased
Increased to 20 years, and the
bill as introduced provided for
this change. The Committee
on Territories, however, to
which tho measure was refer
red, has, as thq message shows,
reduced the tlmo to IS years.
Hut ccn this change will
greatly benefit Hawaii.
Tho Klsh Hatchery Hill,
which Is favorably reported by
tho Committee on Fisheries,
provides for the establishment
In Hawaii of a Government
fish hatchery, where joung fish
may be raised with which to

Hawaiian Fruits To Be
Used In Manufacture
The first brandy still ever made In
the Hawaiian Islands has Just been
completed In tho Bhop of John Km-
meluth. It was made by Kmmeluth
under the direction of Managor Ja
cob Coerper of tho Kona Vineyards
Co., for which concern It was order
ed. It Is tho Intention of the company
to engage in the manufacture of var
ious kinds of brandies from Hawaiian

largo affair, will be shipped to the
company's plnce of business at Kcatn
l.okua, Kona, In tho Mauna Loa noxt
week, and after It has been set up
and started, which work Is oxpected
to consume nboflt four weeks, tho
manufacture ot brandy will be becun
Immediately, In about three or four
months the first product will be plac
ed on tho market. The still has n
capacity ot sixty gallons a day.
In the beginning brandy will be
manufactured only from pineapples,
grapes, figs, and berries, as the use ot
these fruits only Is allowed under the
permit at present hold by tho com
pany. Permission Is, however, at
present being .sought from tho au
thorities at Washington to use other
fruits na woll, and as soon as this has
been grnntcd the company will begin
to manufacture brandies from ba
nanas, mangoes, papains and other
fruits. Tho fruits will bo obtained
from tho numorous smnll farmers In
the district, and It Is oxpected that
ns soon as they realize that they havo
a steady market for their products
