THE COMING KING
Trip of the U. S. Consul-General.
Visiting More Important Districts.
Parker Lands Kamalle Section.
Mr. C. L. Wight, of the Wilder
Steamship company, is very well
pleased over his latest trip through
coffee districts of Hawaii. The special
purpose of this journey was to
show to Mr. Haywood, the Consul-General
for tne United States, the condition
of this newer industry of the
Islands. That gentleman returns much
impressed with what he saw and with
the very apparent possibilities of the
Leaving per the S. S. Kinau, the first
stop was made at Kawaihae, where the
members of the party were the guests
of Mr. and Mrs. Paul Jarret, Here a
look was taken over the extensive
lands of Samuel Parker. Quite an experiment
farm is maintained. The
corn was the best noticed on the trip.
The coffee, yet quite young, is flourishing.
The adaptability of the land for
these two and other crops is satisfactorily
The party was next entertained by
Mr. W. H. Rickard. Considerable time
was spent in that vicinity viewing
closely the holdings of the Portuguese
homesteaders. Mr. Wight declares he
is more satisfied that ever before that
any man of ordinary intelligence and
industry can do exceedingly well on
one of these homesteads. A settler
named De Mello is one of the many
proving that one man or family can
farm even more successfully and profitably
here than in the states. All of
these people grow and sell coff eee. corn
and potatoes. There are about forty
families in the district and not a single
one is running behind. The extent of
a farm is from 17 to 20 acres.
From Honokaa the travelers proceeded
to Paauhau and there went
over the Paauilo district thoroughly.
These holdings are 70 acres each and
the owners of the places visited are as
follows: H. Louisson, Sheriff L. A.
Andrews, Chas. Notley, the three
G. P. and J. A. Wilder, R. H.
Davis and Mr. Lydgate. The soil here
is very fertile. All the places are comparatively
new, but the success of both
coffee and corn is assured.
At J. M. Horner's place in Hamakua
picking has started in and a yield of
32 tons of cleaned coffee is confidently
counted upon. This plantation is 100
acres in extent and the trees are from
1 to 5 years old. Mr. Horner has
show that coffee on Hawaii pays and
All of the plantations on the Olaa
road, between Hilo and the Volcano
house were inspected. They invariably
look better than ever and all of the
owners are more sanguine than before.
The crop -n ill be larger than, last year.
Work at gathering has already commenced
and shipments will soon be
Puna was next visited. After viewing
the established plantations of Peter
Lee and Goudie Bros, the party went
into the Kamalle district, which might
be called new, but which has prospects
that are most alluring. The holders
are: H. Rycroft, Miss Lita Wilder,
Arthur Wilder, C. L. Wight, W. F.
Thrum, Judge A. W. Carter, Geo. R.
Cartel, O. Sorenson, Geo. Angus, A.
Callahan, Chas. Hyde. Two California
gentlemen at Hilo will purchase land
in Kamaile so soon as the appraisement
is made. They are waiting. At
least two crops will be taken off here
this season. There will be from 700
to 1,000 pounds of coffee each from the
holdings of Miss Lita Wilder and
Arthur Wilder. This is considered remarkable
and most encouraging in
view of the fact that the trees are but
25 months old. So much is thought
of the Kamaile tract by what is shown
and by what the experts anticipate
that a landing for the section will be
established at once by the Wilder
Steamship company. Mr. Wight selected
the place, Kehana, and has
given the orders for construction.
The Consul-General for the United
States was struck with the fertility of
the soil, the readiness of cultivation,
the fine results from labor and capital.
He speaks highly of the roads and enthusiastically
of the hospitality of the
people everywhere. Mr. Haywood will
not deal in details at present, but will
send from his office an extended report.
Mr. Wight is happy in finding
confirmed to the letter all that he has
ever claimed for the various districts
in which he has taken an interest and
for which he has labored.
The Hotel Scheme.
MR. EDITOR: An item In your issue
of Saturday, regarding a proposed
hotel for Honolulu, has attracted the
attention of a great many people interested
in the progress and development
of the Island. It is quite evident
that we are in need of better hotel accommodations
for the people who will
come to Honolulu after annexation
takes place. To me it seems that the
accommodations are inadequate, and
hardly fit when the Board of Education
declined to take over the leading hotel
for a school building, on account of
the bad sanitary condition. $
Honolulu has wanted a new hotel
for several years, but never worse than
now, because age has detracted from
the beauties of the Hawaiian and the
building will continue to grow older
and less fit for the entertainment of
guests, even though an excellent manager
be In nharge. New paint and new
furniture will not make a new and
modern building out of an old one.
SB I do not consider that any plan for a
hotel flush with the sidewalk should
be considered at this time; people who
come to our Paradise wish to be in a
place where the surroundings art
pleasant and where they may admire
nature from a lanai rather than to be
cooped up in a room. I believe there
are locations available for such a
hotel as Honolulu needs and I know
there are enough public-spirited men
in Honolulu willing to risk their money
in the venture, believing that a first

Sorrow Over Demise of
Sad Funeral The Services.
Many Floral Offerings At
One of the saddest and one of the
largest funerals Honolulu has ever had
was that of the late John Grace. The
attendance included a great crowd of
friends of the family and strong and
representative delegations from Excelsior
and Harmony Lodges of Odd
Fellows, besides the First Company of
Sharpshooters. Many prominent citizens
were at Harmony hall and followed
the remains to Nuuanu cemetery.
From the earlier hours of the forenoon
till the cortege left the place of
the services, flowers were brought and
deposited upon or near the coffin. The
offerings were in large number and of
great and beautiful variety. There
were bunches of the rarest and sweetest
of island flowers and many kinds of
set pieces. There were crosses, an
chors, wreaths and leis. From the
men in the same business as Mr. Grace
had been engaged, came a broken
The hall could not contain one-fourth
of those who came to pay their last
respects to the man who had gained
their friendship and held the confidence

Alex Mackintosh conducted the Episcopal
service and Wray Taylor was organist
The hymn chosen was "Blest
Be the Tie That Binds."

of the family were so affected at the

mon school education in Dublin be began
the preliminary study of law in
Trinity College, but had not advanced
far when he decided to come to Hawaii
with Sir Robert Herron and family,
arriving here in May, 1893.
Almost immediately on arrival he
entered the law office of Ex-Judge A.
S. Hartwell and renewed his studies.
In March, 1895, he passed a very creditable
examination and was admitted
to the bar with a certificate to practice
in all the Courts of the Islands
In the November following a copartJ
nership was formed between
Hartwell, L. A. Thurston and Mr.
Stanley. This continued until April,
1896, when Messrs. Thurston and Stanley
withdrew and they have continued
their business relations since then.
During Mr. Thurston's absence in the
United States the large practice of the
firm has been attended to by Mr. Stanley.
He has been a successful practitioner
at the bar and is a man of high
moral worth and integrity. Though a
young man his ability as a lawyer is
acknowledged by his associates at the
bar. In October, 189G, he was married
to Miss Danford, daughter of Lady

Saturday morning for the purpose of
declining the appointment but older
heads prevailed upon him and he ac

Cabinet favored tho appointment of
