Confer of Experiment Station Talks of 1'oskIIiIIIIIor In llnmukiin. Frank K. Contcr, Expert Agri culturist nud Assistant nt the Ha waii Experiment Station has been on this Island two weeks studying the soil nnd climntic conditions with reference to their bearing on crops not now grown. Mr. Contcr landed at Kawaihae two weeks ago and has made a thorough investigation of Wnitnea and Hamakua districts. He arrived in Hilo Monday accom panied by Abe I.ouisson the coffee man, and when seen by a Trihune representative, Mr. Couter had many interesting things to say of the prospects of coffee, tobacco, va niln and cocoa on this Island. "I have taken s6il samples from many places in Waitnea and Ha makua," said Mr. Confer, "for analysis at the Station with special reference to their suitability for the growth of tobacco. I am satisfied that the mechanical properties of the soil examined are good for to bacco. It remains to be seen what the chemical properties indicate. If tobacco can be grown success fully here a great field will' be opened up, and the districts of Wai- J niea and Hamakua will advance in wealth and population. Tobacco yields from 1000 to 1500 pounds to the acre, 10 to 50 per cent of which may be first quality, which sells at from $2.25 to $4.00 per pound. The balance sells at from 15 cents to $2.00 per pound. Tobacco should be planted iu January or February, but if our soil analysis is satisfactory in results, we will probably experi ment with one acre iu Hamakua this year. We already have the seed and the experiment now de pends only upon the results shown by the soil analysis. "The coffee industry is in a de plorable state. Many of the home steaders who were formerly raising coffee have left their farms to seek work on the sugar plantations. I have seen nearly all the coffee estates in Hamakua, and nothing is being done to speak of any of them except the Louisson estate, where they are still planting trees. Here I went through ten different fields and found coffee growing luxuriantly. The future of coffee depends on the price. Yes, if a 4 cent bounty were given to coffee, the districts out Hamakua way would settle up and be very pros perous. As it is now, homesteaders cannot make a living. "I am not an advocate of small farming which means the raising of cabbage and tomatoes for the cut worms; and potatoes for fungi and fruit trees to be ravaged by scale. But staple export products, such ai coffee, tobacco, castor beans etc, which grow above the sugar belt, are what we must depend upon to increase our prosperity." Mr. Conter is preparing a bul letin on vanila which will soon be issued. He said: "both vanila and cocoa will thrive in hot moist and sheltered places. Cocoa needs good soil and good drainage, while vanila will grow amongst rocks where there is an accumulation of decayed vegetable matter. Vanila is gener ally raised in an open forest, one third or one half shade and bears a full crop three years after planting If vines four and a half to five feet are planted a yield may be secured within 18 mouths. I recently visited Edwards' plantation in Ko na, where I saw vanila vines grow ing splendidly. Mr. Edwards thoroughly understands the plant ing and management of this crop." Mr. Conter, while in Hilo visited Mountain View and the surround ing homesteads. He is here for the first time and looks upon the Is land of Hawaii as the most re sourceful part of the group.

NKW FARMING COLONY. Iljrron 0. Clark Working With Laud ' Commissioners to (let Solders. ! 1 Small farming may be given another trial on this Island, Land Commissioner Boyd is said to be . working with Byron O Clark, who ' made Wahiawa n success, to bring j colonists from California to take up 1 4,363 acres of good land at Pupti-' kea, Oahu. The land is now un der lease to the Oahu Railroad Company, but the lease expires next month and Mr. Clarke be lieves that he can induce settlers to come here from Southern California or from the Northwest. The scheme is yet iu an embryonic state, but the land is to be set aside by Commissioner Boyd for colonization purposes and will not be put on the market again. "The soil is very similar to that of Wahiawa," said Commissioner Boyd yesterday. "The tract at Pupukea consists of 4,363 acres of rolling laud and is now covered with rank grass, and has been used only for grazing purposes. The idea is to plant it with good fodder grass, and Byron Clark believes that one acre can be made to sup port from two to four cattle. ' The laud is right on the railroad and the only difficulty is as to the water supply. There is plenty ol water along the sea shore, however, and this can be forced back to the Pu pukea lands, which are "but slightly higher. The government may it self attempt to show how the water can be carried to the laud. Then there is some suggestion that the government take ten acres and de monstrate what can be grown there. The land is like that at Wahiawa, and has the advantage of being more accessible to the railroad. Mr. Clark believes that settleis can be induced to come here from Cali fornia or the Northwest, and the government will hold the land and see what can be done with it." AN'TONI OAK AUAIN. lias Another Word to Say About That Howard. Antone Oak does not like to let the matter of a reward for captur ing a prisoner go by the board on an arbitrary ruling of the police de partment. Sometime ago Mr. Oak addressed the following note to Sheriff -Andrews: Kaumana, Hilo, ,H. T. Mr. L. A. Andrews: Dear Sir In reply to my com munication in the Tribune I saw in the Herald that I am not to have a share in the reward offered for the capture of Torres., I wish you would inform me about the matter. I have waited patiently from that time for word from you. Yours very truly, A. OAK. To this letter the Sheriff vouch safed no reply until one day re cently he was personally accosted by Mr. Oak. Mr. Oak reports the Sheriff as saying: "I received your letter and I spoke to the boys about your share. They say you do not have any because you complained of the department in the papers." The query Mr. Oak wishes to make is; "Who is the boss in the Sheriff's office?" SMALL INCOMES. Only 284 Incomes of More Thau $:t,000 a Year. There are few people in the Ter ritory receiving larger incomes than $3,000 a year, according to the in come tax returns. There are but three planters who confess to so large a yearly return, while doctors and lawyers with large incomes are not much more iu evideuce. The following is the communica tion to which Senator Dickey re ferred iu the Senate yesterday: Honolulu, May 6, 1903. Hon. C. II. Dickey, Honolulu: My Dear Senator: In reply to your request of this a.m. iu re In come Tax I beg to state that the assessment returns for 1902 show the following having incomes of $3,000 and over without the deduc tion of $1,000 exemption, viz: Lawyers, 24; doctors, 9; mer chants, 74; planters, 3; capitalists, etc., 49; corporations, 125. The above estimate is as nearly correct as time allowed has per mitted us to make. , Respectfully yours, J. M. RIGGS, Deputy Assessor Income Taxes. FOURTH 1 at HILO!
