Pn"6"MPT3 ACTION SAVED A POSSIBLE DISASTER IN ONE OF THE
MOST BEAUTIFUL OF THE RxIDENTIAL DISTRICTS OF HONO-
' 1 tULU BURNING OF A RUBBISH PILE MIGHT HAVE BROUGHT
DISASTER IN ITS TRAIN.
The ,flre out at Pacific Heights this
afternoon, though Its first appearance
was of a most nlM-mlng nature, did
not prove as serious as It looked. It
started In the Watson cottage prem
ises where ti quantity of rubbish had
to be destroyed, but the high wind car
ried the fire beyond the control of tho
servants there and in a short time tho
flames were creeping npldly down tho
heights. Emll Berndt was early ap
praised of the trouble and he sent a
couple of wagon loads of men with
buckets and apparatus flor the purpose
o fighting the flames. On their arrival
at the Heights they found that C. W.
Booth's people had already taken the
situation in hand and had the fire well
in hand. In a short time It was thor
oughly beaten, but the thanks of the
Pacific Heights people are due to those
who took such prompt action In so seri
ous an emergency.
WATERHOUSE TRUST COMPANY HAS BEEN ASKED TO TAKE UP
THE. MATTER OF ARRANGING WITH THE MATSON NAVIGA
1 TION COMPANY THE QUESTION OF ARRANGING THE TRADE
ON A NEW AND SATISFACTORY BASIS.
The whole banana .business of- pa-4
wall Is on the brink of a revolution,
and the next, few days will show,
whether It Is to last at all or whether
it is to die an unnatural d.eath. Ci'i
taln'Malson In a recent Interview wtu
a Hllo Herald representative was pluin
In 'his :anguage regarding this bad
manner In which Hllo bananas woro
shipped to the San Francisco market
and he incidentally mentioned tfie fact
that Robert Shingle, manager of thf
Waterhouse Trust Company had seen
him about the banana shipping b'usl
ness while In San Francisco recently.
"The fact Is that the extremely b.i'l
handling of the Hllo bananas has rut
the business In poor shape," said Mr.
Shingle this mornlKg. "The Inspection,
if it has been done at all, has been
very bad Indeed and the result has
been that bunches have been landed In
San Francisco In wretched condition.
The product has been killed by the In
ferior manner In which the people
most interested have allowed It to be
run. Fruit that is undersized, unrips
or overripe has been shipped and the
result has been that the Hllo banana
has got a bad name. Diseased fruit,
too has been sent away and the result
has beerf that bunches of bananns have
been dumped overboard right at the
wharves.
"Of course we know here In Hawaii
that the Hawaiian banana Is all right,
equal to tho best anywhere, but It only
takes a bunch or two of bad ones to
make the dealers sore. That Is natural
enough. The conditions are such now,
however, that the Waterhouso Trust
Ccmpany's representative in Hllo, Mr.
Vlckers, has been approached by the
banana growers with a view to finan
cing an arrangement with tho com
pany fhr the proper handling of the
fruit and a meeting1 with Captain Mat
son of the Matson Navigation Line has
been arranged with the end in view of
putting on proper banana steamers.
"Nothing has been done so far how
ever. I went into matters pretty thor
oughly when I was In San FrancMco
and It Is possible that wo may reach
some agreement. For my own 1 a'-t 1
"an 01 ly any that there is no doubt
about the excellence of the Hawaiian
'.'.mriiui but It has boon a suicidal pol
I( on tho part of some persons who
have been shipping Ill-condltlone.l fruit
instead of the good product."

IMMIGRATION COMMISSION HAS THE JAPANESE CONSUL OFFERS

INO HERE OF ITALIANS. I SIST HIS WORK.
The different plantation owners and
managers, it is claimed, are entering
loyally Into tho spirit which prompted
tho founding of the Immigration Bu
reau, and ns a result it Is extremely
probablo that it will not be long before
a colony of white workers from Europe
will bo shown the wisdom of diverting
their steps to tho far Isles of the Pa
cific. ' I
As a primal condition it has become
the duty of the Immigration Commis
sion to find out Just what the planta
tions were willing to do for prospective
white Immigrants and with a view to
securing nccurate Information a clrcu- j
lar letter was sent out to the different
plantations asking for Information. Up
to tho present, while only a few an- j
swers have been received, an earnest
attempt is obviously being made to
gather the requisite Information. It Is,
certain that some sort of a plan Intend
ed to provide white plantation workors
with homesteads will soon bo worked
out. E. E. Paxton hat been commis
sioned to proceed In New York for the
purpose of seeing what can be done tn i
the way ot getting northern Italians
and Spaniards to come this way, and It j
Is said that a scheme for making I
arrangements satisfactory to them Willi
shortly be evolved.
Japaneso Consul Mlki Salto had a
meeting this afternoon with the Rev.
Yoon, tho Korean minister who Is go
ing to Washington on tho Alameda to
speak for Korean independence, as the
reprosentat'vo of Koreans here. On
hearing of tho plan to send a repr;
sontatlve, Consul Salto expressed a de
sire to meet him, and a meeting was
arranged for this aftornoon at th.
home of the Hov. J. W. Wadman of
tho Methodist Church who Is In chargo
of Koronn missionary work here.
Consul Salto stated that he desired
to offer Yoon lotters of introduction to
the Japanese plenipotentiaries t
Washington, and give him assistance
In obtaining a hearing. Yoon will al
so bo supplied with statements show
ing the excellont character generally
borno by Koreans in Hawaii.
