Peter Lee came back from San Prau
cisco ntt enthusiast over the possibilities
of the banana trade. He has formed the
best of connections in San Praucisco and
will devote his whole energies to up
building of the baliaun growing industry
in the District of Hilo.
Mr. Lee is prepared to pay better
prices for bananas than have ever been
offered here before. It is n "cash at the
wharf" system. The planter takes no
risk of fruit spoiling in transit. The
bunches must be big ones. They must
be cut two weeks before ripening bsgitts,
and the bunches must be packed properly
with dry leaves. Por such bananas Mr,
Lcc will pay 50 cents per bunch weighing
40 pounds and ovcry pound additional
weight he will pay V, cents. This rale
gives the grower 75 cenjs for u 60 pound
bunch. Mr. Lee will nt once put in
thirty or forty acres of bananas in Olaa
and from his investigations in tl.c San
Praucisco market, he has 110 fear that
overproduction in tlie Hilo district is
"In San Praucisco." savs Mr. Lcc. "I
found that the Hilo banana was rated bv
all dealers, from the commission firms
anil wliolesale houses to the dagos on the
street, as superior to those from Panama,
New urleaus, Honolulu or any other
s'ource. The Hilo banana has n flavor
that gives it the right of way in tlie mar
ket at higher prices than will lie paid for
other bananas. I have none into this
banana business because it opens up for
the majority of tlte laud owners in our
district such a sure road to prosperity.
I went through the commission houses at
San Praucisco in the interest of the Ha-
wniiatt banana growers. I found them nil
willing to handle our stuff on the old
basis of 10 per cent. I told them we
must have n better arrangement. When
I called nt tlte House ol Porter Hros.. I
found a firm that will lead us out of the
wilderness. I told them wc wanted cash
on the wharf nt Hilo and we wanted n
good stiff price. They had a talk with
Captain Win. Maisou nbout me nud when
I saw tlieiti tlte next day thev were readv
to make Hilo most flattering terms. I
mil authorized by Porter Hros, to pav
cash for good well packed bananas. Por
ter Hros. allow me to nay whatiiiyjudge
meiit approves. They know I'm a planter
and intend working for the planters.
They believe however that this arrange
ment will lie tlie beginning ol a great
industry here and a fine shipping trade
between Hilo and San Praucisco. Porter
Hros., run all the risks in the shipping
and I propose to see that only first class
fruit is sent. I can care for 2000 bunches
nt once. Captain Win. Matsou will help
the industry along in every way in his
power. He proposes to put on the Enter
prise additional facilities for handling
banana shipments,
"I believe in one year, if the people
will take advantage of this opportunity,
that Hilo bananas will be famous
throughout the Pacific Coast and that
our productive capacity will not begin
to equal the demand. Everybody should
remember that already in Sail Praucisco
Hilo bananas arc counted the best in tlie
market, but when they nrc badly packed
they arc considered the worst.
"I do not want any small bunches. I
recommend that people through the dis
trict go into banana raising. The proper
connections have been made to insure a
certain market at good prices.
'I propose also," said Mr. Lee, "to
make shipments of pineapples and nlli
gator pears. Alligator pears retail in the
market nt 50 cents each. I know they
can be shipped for I received a box that
came in good condition nud the fruit
kept nicely for 12 days in San Francisco."
Mr. Lee would be glad to hear by
letter from nuy who are interested in ba
nana growing".
