The Japanese Laborers Shipped at Honolulu " Struck on Him-Altogether It's a Lonely Old Isle. Mostly everybody in Honolulu knows Frank Wilburion. Ho lian been a hustling overseer of work iug gnugs in town and country for about n dozon yours. A fow months ngo Frank was engaged horo to take a gang of laborers, ch'elly Japanese but sorao Ha waiinuB, to Clipperton Island to work gunno. The expedition went from San Francisco in a char tored steamer. Mr. Wilburton is not at Clip nnrton Islaud any more. His Iriond Ohas. lloojcb at Wilhelm's carpontor shop baa received a let ter from him dated at that island "on July 28, in which he speaks of holding out until tho spring but .uot any longer. However, Mrs. Wilburton has recaivod a letter of lat-r date, in which her husband says ho win about leaving for boms. To Mr. lloi'soh ho gives a lugubrious picture, of life on a guano island. Ho says in part: "I could no moro think of tak ing my wife to this island than of Jiving. You havo no idoa of what kind of a placo it i, ami I shall be glad whan I oau lenva it. "I nra protty well physically and I uuess I can staud it all riuht, but mentally it is terrible. Tho Japs shipped in Honolulu, wbou they saw tho placo and fouud out tho kind of work thoy had to do, wont on a strike and wo bad a devil of atirao to get thorn to work. Now jutt imauino, Gharloy, what my work must bo to take a lot of Japs like that and work them " When wo lauded thoro was not a house fit to live la a lot or. rot ton nld nhnntiuB loakiniz and some of thorn had to sleep in the gu'iuo warehouses. Y o nnvo noi tour men that had ever.soen a boat bo foro, aud wo bad to get rigbtuu and get this froight ashore in boats throuch n heavy surf. " Wo havo tho steamer Alioe Blanchard and Bhe will make thin trip to Ban Diego. I expect to got her loaded in a day or two, and sho will return with our winter supplies, ond take ono more load, and then no more ships can eorae here till next spring, when I will leave hero aud come home. " It is a small island of curious formation. Not a blade of grass or a tree or a shrub of any'kind. Tho placo is alivo with Bfabirdn nud lundorabs, but I think the general cliraato is uot bad. as tliro is plen ty of fresh wind nparly always and wo get plenty of rain water to drink." Olipperton Island is about 800 miles off tho ooast of Mexico. "A Church on Muul." Lono, formerly a hack driver, left for Maui in the Kinau this morning. JuRt beforo tho steamer haulod away from tho wharf, he went forward and, with bible iu hand and coat tails tluttoriug in tho wind, dolivored a sermon in questionable English. Ho pro claimed hirasolf all sorts of things and then walked astorn with the tread of a somnabutist. Lono has, during the past few days, collected over 5300 in Hono lulu for "a church on Maui." No one Booms to kuow whore the church is and some go far as say that it exists only in tho disorder ed mind of Lono. On Important limine". B. F. Dillingham and L. A. Thuraton were paesongers on tho Kinau to Maalaoa this morning From that plain tho two will go to Makawao whore they havo im portant business to transact.

Exploded a Cartridge Through Accident -Party In Walraea Saturday Night Weather Better-Sugar Left. Tho Noeau brought tho news this morning of a distressing ncci dout in tho mountains back of Waimoa. It was last Saturday when Frilz Knisor, a luua on Waimea plauti tiou, went into the mountains to shoot goats. Ho took his riilo aud asked a Portuguese to accompany him. Tho two had journoyod along well into tho mountains when, through some accidout ouo of tho enrtridgos exploded at tho breach. Tho rillo was boing carried over Kaiser's shoulder so that tho point of explosion was closo to bisjface. Tho result was disastrous. The face was out up, ouo of tho oyes all but put out and a pieco of tbe lip almost sovored. Tho Portuguese, thinking ho was doiug a roat fav r to K isor took out his knifo and sevorod tho hanging pieco of lip. Tho result lator on can bo imagined. Kaisor was carried back to W mea. Ho was getting on quito well when tho Noeau Bailed. On Saturduy night Mr. Blaok stad of Waimoa gavo a party in honor of his two daughters who are to comu to Honolulu to sch hi .

Colonel Gorton of New New Zealand to Hawaii. Decides That Hawaiian Government Issued Extravagant Information Pointers on Cultivation. Lieut. Col. E. Gorton of Ilangi tikoi, Now Zealand, and Mrs. Gorton, havo roturned to town from a visit of two or throe weeks to tho islaud of Hawaii. They aro at tho Arlington hotel. Mrs. Gorton is a sister of Hon. Percy Smith, chief of tho Govern ment Survey ot Now Zealand, who is i corresponding momber of tho Hawaiian Historical Socioty aud, while visiting theso islands about a yoar ogo, doliverod several ad drosses of great interest and valuo beforo that organization. Mr. Smith is tho most accomplished linguist of his country, as well as ono of tho vory highest living authorities in Polynesian lan guages aud lore. Colonel Gorton was waited on this morning by a Bulletin rep resentative, to whom he gavo an exceedingly interesting talk chiefly on tho Hawaiian cotloo industry. Substantially he spoke as follows: "Your country id at a ratfior critical stHgo just now. Nobody can toll oxnetly what your indus trial conditions aro going to bo, until it is known how and whero you are going to eecuro your futuro labor. "Tho romarkablo trausao ions in sugar plantation shares c n hardly bo regarded as investm u s. They partake rather of tho nature of speculation tho doubling up of capital, and shares running to 210 and upward. "True, as you say, the valua tions may be upon a proper bajis. Tho yields of sugar ton and oleven tons to tho acre, at Ewa and Pa hala are most extraordinary. Still, whon Cuba bogins to pro duce sugar again, aud tho Philip piuo Islands, tho prico of Bugar must come down. And even if tho bounty system of Europe be abandoned, thero is a great deal of beet sugar cultivation uow oven in tho United Statos. "Yet Bucar is. and must con tinue to bo, tho groat industry for Hawaii. To make it profitable you must have a large proportion of colored labor. Whito men simply cannot stand tho intense heat of tho cane fields. Tho strip, ping of tho cano is foarfully warm ami laborious. "Annexation will undoubtedly prove to bo a groat improveraont ovor your tormor conditions. But I bolievo a protectorato by tho United S ates i.onld havo boen far mor preferable. You could theu raako your own laus to suit the poouliai conditions of tho country. All you required was tho flag of a strong power to protect you, and with that you could hnvo an indo pendent govorumout similar to that of tho Colonies. Protection of a strong power was certainly essontial, for, without it. if two groat nations wure at war uny ono of them Duould bo euro to tak.- possossiou of tho inlands. Their geographical position makes them ono of the strongest points of ad vantage to whatever power may hold them. And the United States is strong enough to protect them against any nation. "While on Hawaii I miulo a caroful examination of tho coffee industry. My object was, if the climate was not too warm for Mrs Gortou, to go into tho business and havo two of my youngest sou epmo horo and engage in tho cul tivation of coffeo. I have boen all hrough tho districts of Olia and Puna, and bocoraa convinced that cotrVo grows and bears well in Hawaii. "Yot it is clear that tho stand inc of tho industiv is far from bemi' d tprrniti"d. The bonk j. Continued on eighth page.
