8ISAL MAY MEAN
MINE OF WEALTH
Tuesday, Aug. 25.
William Welnrlcb. nt the tariff
meeting, stated last night: "In a few
months we will know whether we can
grow Manila hemp hero with a strong
fiber, nnd I believe we can."
This was his view of ono of the
most Interesting topics which came
up through the whole evening. Ha
waii, producing the best sisal In the
world and with possibilities of sup
plying tho whole market of tho Unit
ed States with an amount which wilt
mean millions, may also become a
producer of Manila hemp, tho finest
After It had been pointed out that
there are thousands of acres through
windward Hawaii and In tho north of
Maul which mny jot be devoted to
this Manila hemp, something of n
damper was put on tho Idea by one
speaker, who mentioned that tho
raising of Manila homp has been
tried In the East Indies without suc
cess, as It Is found that the peculiar
soil conditions of the Philippines are
necessary for the development of tho
Hut W. C. Weedon. in a Bpcccll
supplementing tho statement of Mr.
Welnrlch, went on to show the pos
sibilities of fiber-producing In Ha
waii. "The Imports of fiber Into the
United States within 10 months
amounts to $33,000,000," ho said,
' of which approximately 40 per cent.
Is sisal. This would make the value
of sisal Imported flC, 000,000 for the
5 ear, counting $35,000,000 as tho
valuo of fiber Imports for a year.
"At the lowest rato which has been
paid here, 0 cents per pound, Hawaii
could supply In time the full demand
of tho United States for this product.
There nro 500,000 acres of land In
the Territory on which It could be
raised. And this would produce, tho
requlslto amount. With prices at
tho average, tho Income from the
sisal which might he disposed of In
tho markets of the United States In a
j car would probably bo $18,000,000.
"Sisal can be raised In almost any
boII here whore there Is not too much
precipitation. It can be raised whero
other products will grow, and, what
Is more, it can be produced In soil
where no qthor product will grow. On
these, coral reefs, where there Is not
six sheor Inches of soil, it prospers."
He supplemented the statement of
Mr. Welnrlch that the sisal Industry
now, while It Is not In the experi
mental stage, la still too small to need
tariff revision to protect it.
Geo. Da La Vergno. n well known
citizen, was among tho arrivals from
