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. !
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
"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
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
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,
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
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.
