The bark had aboard over 4,000 at

the loads of sugar that some from Hawaii
are taken into consideration. to
This peculiar load has a history.
Away back in the SO's a man named
Dousett started the idea that the making
of salt by evaporation would pay.
He began work on the coral reefs of
Honolulu and in years had accumulated
thousands of tons of the saline product
Then came the reaction and
salt was a drug on the market as tho
Mount Eden salt marshes on the Alameda
shore had been discovered.
These proved a good investment to
tho holders and the Honolulu product

nolulu is largely a coasting port. Deep
water ships are not fitted up here.
Consequently sailors shipping from
this port do not receive advance wages
and have no guarantee to give to
the manager of the Home that their
bills will ever be paid.
Many sailors are paid eff at this
port with an average of $30 to $40
each. Captain Bray says that,
they are very well able to
pay ?5 or $10 board in advance, instead
of squandering their money
first and applying to the Home for
food and lodging afterwards.
