In couveraiiion with a Bulletin
roproBontatiretliis inoraiug, Com
missioucr Mnredeu of tho Bureau
o Agriculture, wlio lias just ro
turned irotn a tour of tho oollico
districts of Mivwnii, said:
"My tour o tho Jslaud of Ha
waii was almost entirely in tho
interest of 'tho coffee industry.
I visited all tbo coffeo districts on
tho island aad examined iuto tho
conditions of tho industry ovory
where, but especiallly in Iluma
kua, Ililo, Olaa and Kona.
"Tho Hamolcua district I found
especially adapted to tho cultiva
tion of tho ljrry in that portion
lying in tho holt of woods which
is protected from tho high
winds which prevail in that dis
trict. J. M. Horner's plantation
is a model of good cultivation and
intelligent pruning and from the
results so far obtained is an as
sured success, lie has 00 acres
of coffeo trops, a portion of which
is now bearing. Prom this y oar's
picking ho has obtained 25,500
pounds of berries, tlio proceeds of
which have paid two-thirds of his
entiro outlay on the plantation
from its inception to date, while
tho prospects are good for an
enormous yield next year from
the samo trees and others which
will come into bearing. Mr.
Horner finds that hU trees from
tG.uatomala seed have madoia.nioro
-.vigorous growth and given the
.heaviest yiold, which oomns to he
idua.to tho climatic change. His
jro9.uns nro also oorneout oy a,
tBimilar experience on another
(plantation owned by & native at
iKitfJcuihaele, 18 miles distant,
illho. ooff eo throughout Hauiakua
ali8trict is remarkably vigorous
taid ihoalthy and is froo from
Ulightof nuy nature, which as duo
tr itho good work of Professor
Eoobels's ladybirds. ThiB is
troie of every" district I visited
TLaro is an almost total ahsonco
of (iilight ovory whore. I visited
the Hocokaa homesteads whioh
are .laostly settled by
natir.es und Portuguese. Thoro
tho .coffoo treo thrives re
marbalily well, but owing to tho
5 perniiuious practio3 prevailing
witu uio irortugueso ot piaauug
other .oropc botwoen the coffee
trees Aliay don't do as well
as thtvy ought to. Thoro
was one .exception to this practice,
and the result wbb shown in the
superior girowth of tho coffee.
Tho settlors .havo plenty of laud
and I called ttliom together atid
explained to 4hem tho fotly of tho
courso they were pursuiug and
they promised to avoid it in
"I wont all -through tho Olaa
distriet on foot, visiting most ot
tho plantations. Coft'eo undoubt
edly does well n'H through tho
district, though in a few instancos
tho trees have noi boon woll
planted. Ilowevor, tho planters
aro gaining knowlodgo by ex
poiiouee and arourthar advanced
in tho methods of planting, culti
vation ami! gouoral euro of thoir
plantations than thoso of nny
other district. If they havo no
drawbacks, audi as a scarcity of
labor which is evnu now
hogiuiiiug to mako itfiolf felt, tho
industry in tliut district will he a
grand success. 1 found tho Olaa
coll'oo plantors . Hot of bright, in
telligent and hardworking mon,
ready and willing to recoivo and
act on suggestions. TJioy havo
promised to givo a fair and honest
trial of snvoral experiments, tho
rosults of which 1 think will go
far towards solving the problem
of furnishing employment for
thoir laborers during the huiihoji
of tlio year when thoro Is no colVoo

and tho cultivation of which will
go fur towards furnishing all-the
your round employment. Another
experiment "will be tho introduc
tion of the castor bean. This is a
prolific yioldor and 'requires little
cultivation, and tho inanulacture
of castor oil can easily ho made a
profitable industry in conjunction
with coffoe. The machinery
required is simple and inexpen
sive and tho product as one of tho
market sttples. Tho oilcako left
iu the prosoa after tho extraction
of tho oil will bo valuable as a
fertilizer for tho coffeo, and I hav
impressed lupou the planters every
where the necessity of commen
cing utilization at once, without
waiting for the virgin soil to bo
worked out, as many sugar plan
" Kona district (undoubtedly
possesses the soil and climatic
conditions requisite to tho rnis
iug of tLv? coffeo boau in
its perfection, but with tho
exception ot a few foroigu
corporations J il;o the Hawaiian
Tea and Coffeo Company, the
coffee in that district lias been al
most entirely uncultivated. I
visited man' plantations owned
by Portuguese, natives and Japa
nese and instructed them in tlio
correct methods of planting,
pruning and caring fur the trees.
Tho industry in Kona district is
kept bade by the exorbitant prices
at which suitable lauds aro hold.
If laud was mote easily available
and proper cultivation of tho
berry inoro generally understood
Kona district could produce an
inoxhaubtiblo supply of coffee.
It is a superb country.
1 taw figs, grapes and
peaches there of magnificent ap
pearance and Uavor. Tho Portu
guese understand tho cultivation
of the vine woll and manufacture
a considerable quantity of wiuo
every year, but the varieties of
grapes cultivated are not up to
date. I am going to got them somo
of the finer varieties, such as aro
found in the big California vino
yards and maybe after a while wo
cau stop importiug grapes from
California. Tho Kona settlors have
o1bo promised to give the mouu
'tajn rico and castor beans a fair
'trial, and I shall send sample
.packagen of seeds up thoro as
soon as I can get them ready.
Everywhere I went I hold
mootings when I could get a few
of tho plantors togothor and told
thorn what I could about tho cor
rect methods of raisiug coffee, but
I laid particular stress on tho ab
solute necessity of taking up somo
othor industry as. well, by which
the labor necessary in tho borry
picking season could be utilized
during tho balanco of the year.
Is conclusion tho Commissioner
said ho was glad to get home,
having been away from his oflico
nearly two months, during which
ho liRid been traveling almost con
stantly and much of tho time on
foot. Ho expects to make regular
trips to Hawaii ovory six months,
and will also visit tho other isl
ands for similar trips, leaving for
Maui in about two months.

The Union Steamship Compa
ny's Monowni will call hero on
Iier way to tho Colonics on No
vember 19th, probably for tho lust
time. Tho vessel is too slow to
suit tho increasing domauds for
faster passages. Tho company ex
pects to put a now vessel on tho
San Francisco routo about the ond
of the year and she will bo a fast
ouo. Under tho tonus of tho con
tract with her builders sho is to
bo an eighteen knot boat, and
mako a trial trip ovor tho routo,
and if she cannot average seven
teen knots nn hour on a twouty
ono days' run sho will not bo ac
cepted. Sho will be -1500 tons bur
don and will, therefore, bo ono of
the largest vessels coming to this
Captain Carey, Purser Uendoll
nnd Chief Engineer McKaig of
tho Monowai expect to bo assign
ed to tho now vessel and all Ho
nolulu people will hope their ex
pectations will be realized, for
they aro desorvedly popular hero.
They will probably tnko most of
their subordinates with thoin.
"Tho Union Steamship Com
pany is branching out," said
Chief Engineer McKaig on his last
trip. "It has bought a cargo-boat
and has a now ono on tho Blocks.
A twenty-knot boat is boing built
to run between Ouelmnga aud
Wellington, to carry our mails,
and nnothor fast boat is boing
constructed to run between Auck
land nnd Sydnoy. Thou thoro is
tho eighteen-knot boat for tho San
Francisco trade, so, you bco, tho
concern is holding its own. Tho
Monowni is a sploudod ship, un
fortunately (with a sigh), wo
can't mako time with her."
Among tho many Australian
skippers who como to Honolulu !
Uaptain M. Cnroy easily ranks as
ouo of tho most popular. He was
born in Killarnoy, but in 1835 he
wns sailing out of New Bedford
in a whaler. Ho did not liko tho
life, nnd when tho vessol put in
at tho Pay of Islands for water
ho managed to miss hor when sho
again put to sea. Ho thon tried
farming, but could not make a
success of it, and in 1859 ho wns
third ollicer of one of tho Inter
colonial Itoyal Mail Company's
Btonmors. A year lator ho hoisted
tho Union Stenmship Company's
Hag on tho steamor Wellington,
and has stayed with that concern
until it is now tho biggest aud
most poworful corporation in tho
?lnjir l'liiiKboru n KumiiII.
Interviewed on his arrival in
San Francisco from Honolulu,
Major Z. K. Pangborn said to a
reporter of Tho Call:
" Before I say anything about
homo affairs, allow mo to say a
little of that beautiful islaud ro
public, Hawaii. I was thoro for
several weeks and I can say with
asiuraueo that it presents a mag
nificent hold for busbies that is,
an increasing and prolitnblo busi
ness. This is particularly true of
coffeo, mi gar and fruits ot all
kinds. Thoro aro vast tracts of

London, August 1. Several
most important discoveries havo
just boon mado in Cairo bearing
upon the history of tho Christian
church in the first two centuries
of tho Christian era. Among
them is a manuscript from tlio
fifth contury which is a Coptic
translation of tho thrco original
gnostic writings of tho second
contury. Its vnluo consists not
only in the fact that it hands
down old gnostic writings that
hitherto have boon unknown ex
copt by name, but, above all, in
the circumstanco that one of'
them was known to Ircnneus aud
epitomized by him without any
statement of tho source from
which ho had derived it.
Tho discovery of this manu
script enables us for the first timo
to test tho accounts of the gnostic
system as given by tho church
fathers in tho light of tho original
It contains threo independent
treatises entitled "Gospel Accord
ing to Mary or Apocryphon ot
John;" second, "Wisdom of Jesus
ChriBt"; third,"Practico of Peter."
Tho "Gospel of Mary" is a docu
ment used by Ironaeus, and con
Bists mainly of tho rovolation of
John. Tho- "Wisdom ot Jesus
Christ" consists of questions ad
dressed to him by tho disciples -and
his answers. Tho "Practice
of Petor" is tho narrative of ono
of Peter's miracles of hoaliug.
