Knortfl to Induce Jnpnnpso Laborers lo go o Snn Frnnclsco. It is reported that efforts arc being made by j. P. Ball, n lawyer formerly of Honolulu, now nt Victoria, It. C, to en tice Jnpnnesc laborers from Hawaii to migrate to the Const, with n view of sending litem to South America. A local representative Is said to be now on the ground making the arrangements. Japa nese have been going to Sail Francisco and the California const only to be disap pointed in securing higher wages, and some of them have returned to their for mer haunts in these Islands. Ballta plans nre surrounded with n secrecy nc- cording to Seattle dispatches, but that he is making nrrnngements fur n Inrge con signment of Jnpnnesc lnbor from the is- Innd plantations is certain. The Weekly Hawaii Shlnpo, published, at Honolulu, contains the following re ference to the matter: Honolulu and Hilo arc soon lo receive calls from some steamers from the coast coming after Japanese passengers to Sail Francisco and Seattle. At least two such steamers arc already announced and the companies owning or chartering them are advertising in the local Japa nese press. The S. N. Steamship Company is ad vertising the well known steamer Cen tennial, to come to Honolulu and Hilo about March 35, aud to make monthly trips thereafter, from San Francisco to llllo nnd Honolulu and back, with Hilo ns the principal port nt this cud. The steamer wants laborers as passengers, and she will go to the island where it is thought that the largest number can be had. Inducements arc being offered which the charterers hope wilt result in the steamers being crowded with Japa nese steerage passengers every tripr The Oriental Trading Company of Seattle is another concern which is about to send a steamer here. This company's vessel is the Olympla, and it is announced in the advertisements that she will be here about April iS. She is to carry Japanese passengers and freight to Seattle, and special inducements are being offered to passengers. Now L'nno Loader. W. II. Lambert, formerly of the llllo Railroad, has perfected a cane loader, which for simplicity of construction nnd operation ought to appeal to every plan ter. His principle is an endless cable running betweeu two towers, which con veys the caue for n distance of three hun dred feet iu the field to the car or flume, where bv a simple operation the bundles arc lowered Into the vehicle or flume. The loader is operated with a small three horse power gasolluc engine, and can be moved to any part of the field without difficulty. Mr. Lambert-went to Houo lull) Friday to present his invention to sc vt ral-agents of island plantations. The machines will be sold on a royalty basis. Prospects For July Races. . Already the members of the Hawaii Jockey Club are making arrangements for a splendid race meet on July 4th, (s will appear from the advertisement ap pearing in this issue. The horsemen are evincing great interest in the meeting aud since word comes from Honoluln that the nth of June races there have been abandoned, the management will endeavor to attract the string of fast run ners of the capital city. The public may be sure that under the supervision of the Hawaii Jockey Club they will be fur nished with a good day's sport. Combine- Against lluwnllnu Hnnauas. A local banana grower has received a letter from his agent iu San Francisco showing the methods adopted by com mission men on the coast which is the cause of such small returns. An extract from the letter is: "Its a pretty tough proposition this banana business now. The Eastern banana people are killing the price on Hawaiian fruit by simply unloading several carloads at the time the S. ih Enterprise arrives and selling their own fruit at very low figures. Their bunches arc twice the size of ours and sell at about $1.00 a bunch. This results iu knocking the price of Hawaiian , ba nanas dowu to nothing. The Hilo grower should organize nnd coma into this market solid. If they do not they are going to be beaten right along. You arc at the mercy of the commission men and things arc getting worse." Some shippers last month only realized thlrleon cents a bunch aud one man's net pro ceeds on a $300 shipment was $8.00. Hi6Af,L PLANTERS' MILL. W. It. Cnxtlo Proposes to Erect One In Month Konn. W. R. Cnsllc, Attorney 1). L. Wlthlng- ton, of Honolulu, and Prof, Geo. II, Mend, of Chicago University, accom panied by his small sou, were Hilo visi tors over Thursday ns the guests of Mrs. E. G. Hitchcock on School street. The pnrty have been on Hawnii for the past ten days, visiting the two Konas, ascend ing Mnunn Ken and stopping nt KUmlea on the trip overland from Knilun. After leaving Humimlu Sheep station, the guide lost his way and led the party ten tulles past the Volcano House down into Knit. They arrived, however, at the crater hotel on Tuesday night about dark much fatigued by tliclr long journey, but descended into the crater to witness the lnva flow, which wns quite active. All were much pleased with the grandeur of the scenery, both of Kilatten and the higher elevations. They took the Kiuau Friday morning for Honolulu. Mr. Castle has formulated a scheme of building a cooperative mill near Nn poo poo, to grind the cane of small Individual planters iu that vicinity. Mr. Castle has sought lo encourage cane growing in the two Kona's, believing it means the up building of that side of the island. Hence his purpose to erect a central mill where the output of small planters for miles around could be ground. .' Some years ago, cane was grown be tween Napoopoo and Hookcna at Mr. Castle's solicitation, and while it was never harvested, Mr. Castle reimbursed nil of the owners of this cane, as he had asked them to grow it, thinking that by the time it would be ready to be harvested that there would be a mill ready. Mr. Castle has not given the Idea up and there are men like former Manager Hewitt of Naalehu, who think the plan a good one. He only wants to hear from his brother J. B. Castle, who is in the East negotiating for funds, machinery, etc. W. R. Castle's scheme is to build a sugar mill at Kealakekua bay, near Na poopoo, which would be able to grind all the caue that could be grown upon the land of the old Kona Sugar Co. and cer tain lands called Keel, Honnunau, Kco kea and Kalae, which lie between Napoo poo and Hookena, in South Kona. One of the chief causes of the failure of the .Kona Sugar Co. was the inability to get the cane to the mill at a reasonable cost, owing to the long distance that some of the caue had to be transported. Were a mill erected at Napoopoo the cane could be dry flumed at a low cost, because of the steep incline of the surrounding hills. Should this proposition go through the new plantation would be a large one, as there would be much new land planted to caue In South Kona, which was not available to the old Kona Sugar Co. Citizens of North and South Kona are taking keen ititerest in the project. To tho LuiIIor. Mrs. J. H. Lane will leave for the East within a few weeks. Ladies desiring millinery should seud In their order not later than March 30th, or they cannot be filled. L. TURNER CO., LTD. Tho Micks' Dnnco. Elaborate preparations arc In progress for the Emerald Dance to be given by the Hilo Cotillion Club next Friday night at Spreckcls Hall. The Decora tion Committee under 'the supervision of Miss Ivy Richardson, chairman, have under way n decoration scheme that will be both unique and original. The pre vailing colors of course will be green, commemorative of the laud of the Sham rock aud it has been suggested that the management erect a spacious "Blarney stone" where the loquacious lovers can renew their inspiration in the search for new worlds to conquer. The liquid re freshments will be entirely temperance drinks, so that the dance is not expected to end in a wake as somebody has prophesied. ltliouninllsm Can bo Cured. Many sufferers from this painful disease have been surprised and delighted at the prompt relief obtained by applying Cham berlain's Pain Balm. A permanent cure may be effected by continuing its use for a short time. It will cost you but a trifle to try it. Sold by the Hilo Drug Co. A HATTER OF HEALTH Kinuu Departures, March 10. Mrs. J. M.

The Olaa Sugar Company began grind ing last Tuesday, and on last Suuday night Manager Watt put on a night shift, so that the mill is now running night and day. Win. Weight has been em ployed as assistant to Sugar Boiler Fiucke, and Fred G. Snow is assistant engineer in charge of the night work. Engineer Harry Wicks has had the mill In readiness for several weeks past, but the delay was necessary 011 account of the lack of water to flume the cane. There is ample water now in the Kau maua flume and 110 apprehension is felt regarding a further shut down on account of dry weather. A Communication. Editor Tkiuunk: Today Rev. W. C.
