AN IMPORTANT INDUSTRY
Ramie
Growing in the
Hawaiian
TelnTtnt
Editou Gazette About twenty years ago
Dr Hillebrand Bent to California and China
after ramie roots and seed and after the
roots arrived here he sent about a pound to
Kona Hawaii and half a Bound to Wail oka
Maui The roots sent to Kona were planted
by on old native long since dead and those
sent to Maui were planted in Iao Volley by
Capt WiltonR The roots planted in both
places wore almost entirely neglected ana in
Wailuku the cattle havo nearly destroyed it
but in Kona no cattle ranced on the mound
where the ramie was planted and so it has
continued to grow and spread ctst since not
withstanding the dense growth of Lantana
and Hilo grass surrounding it on every side
and the ramie now covers about thirteen
acres from the original planting of one
pound of seed besides the native first plant
ing sold some roots to a Chinaman who
planted them about three miles from tho
first planting by tho native and this patch
which is about twelve years growth covers
seven or eight acres and from these two
patches of ramie the natives and Chinamen
in Kona have for years mode iheir fishing
lines and some nets
Something like nine years ago a small
machine was imported by the Hitchcock
Brothers in Hilo at that time Messrs
Hitchcock planted some ramie but as the
machine was a failure they gave up the
ramie business so they were the first men in
this country to invest and loso money in the
ramie indestrr
After that Mr C C Coleman thought that
he could improve on the machine imported
by Messrs Hitchcock and Messrs S N
Castle and B F Dillingham furnished the
money needed for his experiments to the
sum of 7000 After bis machine was fin
ished Mr Coleman secured patents in sev
eral countries but as Messrs Castle and
Dillingham stopped the supply of money
Mr Coleman allowed the whole affair to drop
into the background and nothing was done
to revive the ramie industry until three or
four years ago when the textile people all
over the world became interested in ramie
through the untiring zeal of such men
as Professors F Fremery Le Franc and
Berthet llewards were offered by several
governments for a machine that would pre
pare the fibre of ramie for market bo that it
would be profitable at from 5 to 15 cents per
lb These offers have so stimulated in
ventors that no less than eighteen machines
of more or less merit have been patented for
cleaning ramie but very few of the patents
are of value
The H C Smith Death Ellwood ma
chine took the reward offered in British
India 14000 but as it only cleans from GO
to 100 pounds per day and requires three
men two horse power engine and 400 gallons
uf wnter per hour the machine Is only good
for small growers and will not prove of
much value even to them A machine in
vented by George Gibson from the reports
of the New Orleans Exposition seems to
have a goodly amount of merit but is of
small capacity 400 pounds per day Two
men two boys and a three horse power en
gine are required to run it so report says
A machine that is said to do a large amount
of work has been invented by a gentleman in
Guatemala but as hb has no patents yet and
one gentleman who went to see it operate
for me says that it can only handle a small
amount of ramie stalks per day it requires
four minutes for a lot of statics to pass
throngh the machine and as it cannot pro
perly treat over 25 stalks at a time and it
only produces 3 per cent of fibre it is
very easy to see that the claim of 4000 pounds
per day is very far from being correct One
hundred stalks per minute is for ten hours
63000 twenty green stalks weigh about one
pound 3000 pounds of green stalks at 3
percent 105 pounds of clean fibre But
hope that the machine will prove better than
the above showing I show the above figures
because several have become much inter
ested in this new machine but without the
least knowledge of facts in regard to work
ing ramie
About three years ago after endeavoring
to get Mr Coleman to set up his machine
without success Messrs Dillingham Castle
and myself bought out his patents and ma
chines and immediately had the machine
set up and tried but it waj so complicated
that it was practically useless so I began
modifying it and at last so perfected it that
we could only secure a patent as a now in
vention and not as an improvement This
machine was decided by the Commissioner
Col Jonathan Austin appointed by the Gov
ernment to be entitled to the bonus 10000
voted by the Legislature but as the reason
given for not paying it by the then Minister
of the Interior no money in the Treasury
has not to my knowledge been removed we
have not received the money up to the pres
ent time As the fibre cleaned by that ma
chine for which we were offered five cents
per pound for all that we could make in five
years was often cut by the fluted rollers
and was delivered from the machine some
what tangled f have since perfected a ma
chine that never cuts the fibre nor can the
fibre by any possibility be tangled while
being cleaned The proved capacity of the
new machine is at least one ton 2000
pounds per day It needs two men two boys
and one-horse-power engine to operate The
product is a clean ramie bark and at present
is worth from 10 to 15 cents per pound
The Hawaiian Kamie Company Limited
owns the two Colman machines and the two
invented by me has thirty six acres of ramie
growing on the plantation in Fana 400
acres where over 12000 has been spent in
improvements and we can now confidently
say that at last the ramie industry here is an
assured fact and that tb a business will
prove at least as profitable as sugar
I will give you few figures For perfec
tion in growing ramie we want rich soil
little wind warm climate and plenty of rain
but as the ramie plant does fairly well or
a3 well as sugarcane does wherever the cane
grows ramie will grow Bo there is no lack
of plenty of room for ramie and as ramie
needs no cultivation except to keep the grass
and weeds out the first year there are hun
dreds of places where ramie can be suceess
fullv grown where it would not pay to plant
sugarcane
The cost to us for the first year is about
100 per acre This includes cost of seed
and as one planting is all that is needed the
expense after the first year is only for catting
and stripping pO the leaves After the first
year we can cat three or four crops every
year depending on conditions of soil etcl
and will get from a ton and a half to two
tons and a half of fibre tothe acre for each
crop and at five cents per pound taking
three crops and a ton and a half to the acre
we have as a result gross receipts 450 per
acre per annum and say that cleaning and
marketing etc a very high estimate costs
three quarters we have as net result 112 50
for every acre planted in ramie
I will gladly answer any questions within
my knowledge concerning ramie Itespect

Hope for tho Nation
In one line at least the Hawaiian Govern
ment shows great vitality It may bo bank
rupt in its finances incompetent for tho re
sponsibility of keeping in order the roads
and hridoca of tho Kincdom and nneaual to
a proper selection of the rank and file of the
official brigade it may bungle in the man
agement of its minute bundle of foreign
affairs may bo unable to keep its accounts
correctly and fail to keep its expenditures
within the limitations of the appropriation
bill or within the revenues yet it shows gen
uine ability la creating royal orders and for
this let us ba truly thankful Tho lata crea
tion of the Order of Oceania renews the
waning confidence of the community in a
which is capable of accomplUh
SiTernment
g so much upon so small resouroee Hence
forth if things get down to a lov ebb and
tne times aro out or joint ana anairs seem
to be on the point of going to pieces letns
not give up the ship but remember that
there is a hand at tho helm which when nil
seema lost will save the state by launching
new royal order upon tho community to
which many a poor devil wrecked in fortune
or reputation or both may cling and float
through the storm to some haven of content
Let us not forget the Hole Nana Society and
remember that the genius that could con
ceive and carry out so naive and phenomenal
a creation may bo relied on for yet greater
things in the same direction An Interesting
and praiseworthy feature of the new order
of Oceania is that tho members are required
to wear clothes this is definite advance
from the Hale Nuan Society whose mem
bers are indeed required to wear certain
thino8 but which are of so archaic a charac
ter that the uninitiated ore at a loss whether
they represent garments or decorations
The members of the Oceania order are how
ever to be rewarded for obedience tothe
onerous requirement of wearing clothes by
the gorgeousness of the costume and the
exalted privilege of fastening a jewelled gar
tar to the sinister leg just below the knee
and in order that the gaping crowd may
know that the garter is in place and so give
due honor to the wearer he is to wear knick
erbockers instead of pantaloons For these
high honors and the privilege of wearing
the jewelled garter and paying for it the
knight is allowed nay generously compelled
to the farther privilege of contributing to the
royal pin money the truly insignificant Bum
of from 50 to 150 Ilie illat lacrymat
This is but a beginning greater things
ore in store for loyal subjects now And more
glorious orders will shortly rise in the Ha
waiian firmament not only stars but full
moons and new moons and suns and clus
ters and nebuko and meteors and comets
The Empire of the Calabash will expand and
become great upon tho firm foundations
built of these royally hewn supports Wo
may expect in the near future the Order of
the Tattooed Drinking Gourd the Order of
the Gilded Malo the Order of the Royal Cus
pidor the Order of the Iwikuamoo or Back
scratcher the Order of the Feather Cloak
the Order of the Genealogical Fie and most
glorious and popular of all the Order of lhn
Hoopilimeaais Then will be fully ushered
in the golden age of moral forces in the
Pacific when such base instruments as even
theKaimiloa alias Coffee Mill alias Con
undrum late Explorer now floating Re
formatory School on the high seas will bo
no longer necessary I IVioa

Another GrowrL
Laoabu March 1st 1877
Eduob Gazette Ote of the constitu
tional grumblers of Lahuina has again taken
in hand filled with regret and perhaps
should say indignation at some of the
past weeks proceedings
It seems almost as if we are doomed to sit
with folded hands and have our houses
broken into and plundered our brothers
husbands sons yes and wives and daugh
ters too become drunkards and given over
to vice in every form and powerless to re
sist the waves of destruction that threaten
to engulf them at every turn
Something like thirty gin shops gambling
and opium dens with several places whero
swipes and okulehau are furnished
children gambling on the street corners and
running at large nearly all night thus ren
dering them unfit for school duties boys of
the tender age of six years beastly drunk
women reeling on horseback or staggering
along the streets men spending their hard
earned dollars for swipes and gin and their
wives andchildren without proper clothing
and food drunken policemen a such i
and has been the condition of Lahalna for
some time past Gnowueu
New Scenery for the Theatre
The drop scene at the theatre is to be
touched up and renovated by Mr Jules
Tavermer who is also going to paint a
leal back ground for the stage While Mr
5 avernier fi employed there it might be as
well if the proprietors were to get him to
paint a couple more interiors The present
bine chamber Is a very unsatisfactory one
for a drawing room scene such as is often
required in society comedies of the modern
style We are well aware that the theatre Is
not a paying property but we Cto cot think
that the additions suggested would be very
expensive and they would add ranch to tho
completeness of the theatre
The Roads
Recently Kuuanu street and a portion of
King street received a supply of broken stone
to fill up the ruts and on top of all a liberal
quantity of black sand was spread after
which the steam roller was called into requi
sition and the whole smoothed down into a
passable looking roadbed but jott wait
until the first heavy rain falls and see where
the sand will be If it bad not been for the
funeral on Sunday there would bare been no
temporary repairs made unless soma of the
big Injlns broke their necks in the hole j
the common trash can always take cara of
themselves and no money needs to be laid
out on their account for roads At least this
appears to be the programme
The Honolula Boat and Yacht Clmiel
