The Wilhelmlna can carry a little more than 4000 bunches, and the Ma noa about 3500. Owing to the coastwise shipping laws the Japanese liners can take no cargo, from Honolulu to the coast and the three Pacific Mail boats are barred by the fact that they are of foreign build and hence cannot en gage in coastwise trade.
