Increasing tho prollt to the producer, and lints encourag
ing the co ft co Industry, Is to form an association, as al
ready mentioned, nnd thus secure tho retail price of
coffee, rather than tho wholesale price. Greater dlftlcul-
tics than would bo experienced In tho formation of such
an association, have already been ovcrcomo by groups of
producers on tho mainland.
Tho quality of our coffco Is excellent, tho flavor and
aroma being mild. It requires slightly different treat
ment In roasting from that recommended for tho coffee
of I'orto Illco, Central America nnd South America.
If n buBlncss-ilke coffee association wero formed, the
market for our coffco could be carefully studied and
developed In n progressive manner. At present, Hawaiian
coffco Is not well enough known on tho mainland, and
this Is duo to n lack of aggressiveness on tho part of tho
producers. With tho market difficulties solved, so as to
render tho profits from coffco still moro attractive, It

A speclcn of smooth seeded cotton was observed by
Captain Conk on his first voyage to the Hawaiian Islands.
In addition to this species, which is qlosoly related to
Sea Island, two native species of cotton, with short,
brown lint, wero, nt ono time, quite abundant; but have
gradually been exterminated by cattle, until at present,
thoro nrd only n fow plants In existence. Ono of theso
species Is being propagated nt tho Hawaii Experiment
Station nnd will bo hybridized with Sen Island cotton.
More or less nttontlon has been given to cotton nt various
Intervnls In tho past by natlvo Hawnllans and others. In
1837 there was a cotton mill on Hawaii, which produced
a good quality of cotton cloth. Following tho Civil War,
'an Interest was awakened In cotton on account of Us
high price, nnd Sea Island cotton of flno quality was
raised for flvo or six years on nearly all of tho Islands.
