This is what Manager 15 . F. Dilling
ham efTers the the investors in the
OafaK Socar Company. Mr. Dilling
ham is enthusiastic over the outlook
tw hfe aew eaterprlse.and believes he
has sooad reasoss for o being. In
the first pteee he expresses himself as
highly gsstiSed at the terms at which
be hf pmriresed the land for the

pliatation, also the water privilege,
-vrhich is to prove one of the excellent
features of the plantation. Mr. Dil
lingham said to the representative of
xhe Advertiser yesterday, "I believe
;shat the property on which the mill
and pumping station are to be erected
"Hgg been put in for iess than one-half
the value the investors would he will
ing to pay rather than build improve
ments at a. cost of ?SOO,000 on leased
jlaad. 2ow there will be no reversion
of the laDd or the water privilege.
Thelanddoes not control the mill and
the water, but the owners of the
"nil II and the water control the
land. Hie water nrivihjre of
the Waipabu springs cost $50,000.
Beckoning a water rental of $10,000
a. year, fcimilar to that paid by
Wslbee, we have our water right paid
foriH five years. The company will
own luetr plant and plantation iu fee
"There is already a source of i ncome
on the plantation. The banana plan
tation is in good condition and in the
last four years has yielded a net an
neal income of $10,000- This planta
tion can be continued until it is seen
fit to put the land to sugar, if neces
.sarv "
What about the pumping plant?"
The pumping plant, which would
cost sot less than $15,000, has been
put in for $5,000. This can be put into
ase at once for raising our own seed
cane, therebv makingagreat saving."
"What is the plan of starting?"
"If we start in 1S95 we must lie
assured of the fact as soon as possible,
and not later than the middle of
March, f-o that200 acres can be planted
forsf-ed. This would attain sufficient
size for seed cane, commencing with
the first or middle of July,
when it should be planted. This
iSQ acres would yield enough setd to
plant 2,000 acres. A second crop could
be grown to furnish 2,000 more acres
Tfae plan in prospect is to plant not
less than 2000 acres each year so that
the harvest the third year will give
J0W acres of plant cane and ratoons
together which yield should be kept
p continuously. Furthermore, if the
company choses to pump water to
the highest elevation and occupy the
whole' 10,000 acres they can increase
the output so as to take off a crop of
5000 or 6000 acres yearly."
Will not the present low price of
sugar be somewhat of a barrier to the
access of the company?"
"It has been conclusively shown in
the special notice to intending inves
tor, printed in the prospectus, that
if sugar should fall so low as to net
not more than $40 a ton $12 to $15
per ton less than the average for the
sst three Years with sugar free In the
re ill am
for the
United States there will still
a profit of over 10 per cent,
"Do you think that plantations in
the islands generally expect to make
sBcarata profit at such figures?"
X believe it impossible for any
T&mtetion. with the possible excen-
tkvB of e-n-e or two, to make sugar as
cheap by $5 or $10 per ton as is pro-
Itv lhA oahii Nmur t Dmnanv
"Whv is this so?"
"The question is answered in the
tceepectas where the advantages are
yvcfi. Chief among these is the large
ana of remarkably fertile land land
which has a wonderful capacity for
jiwiooiiig sugar. The area of land

tmmuMSed in the trend toward con-

under more favorable terms owing to
fhem-oximitv to iionoiuiu anu me
delightful climate. Another favora
ble point is theepossibllity of natural
drainage. While the elevation of the
land will reauire an expense for
pumping, the natural facilities in con

were nearly on a level the enormous
amount of water needed for cane
growing would flood the land In a few
years, and without good drainage it
would become neavy anu sour.
"Finally, cheaper transportation is
one of our great advantages. The cost
of placing a large amount of the sugar
from the various islands of tne group
alongside the deep-water vessels in
Honolulu for transportation to tne
refineries is from S2 to ?3.ou per
ton. "With the same rates both
ways this means a cost of from
$4 to $7 per ton for all inter-island
freight handled. The Oahu sugar
company can nave ireigut uaumcu,
including both ways, for $2.80 per
ton, a difference on the average of
$2.70 per ton. On a quantity of
say 50,000 tons to be handled our plan
tation makes a saving of $135,000 or
more conservatively, say $120,000
which is equal to a profit of. 6 per
cent, on the total capital stock of the
"Aside from the benefit to the Gov
ernment in taxes, I believe this plan
tation offers much for an improved
class of laborers. Opportunities come
to nations as well as individuals, and
at this time I believe the conditions
in the United States and all over-the
world are ripe for a large influx of in
telligent, thrifty and Industrious set
tlers in this country. INo more desir
able nlace to live can be found than
Pearl Harbor, with its charming cli
mate and magnmcenc scenery, acis
cooler than Honolulu, and on the
unuer nortion the water for domestic
purposes is unsurpassed for purity and
sweetness. We are informed that
those interested in the welfare or
American farmers have been very
favorably impressed with the co-oper
ative plan formulated by James u.
Castle, Esq., Collector-General of Cus
toms, and put into successful opera
tion at Ewa plantation by its progres
sive manager, Mr.W. J Ijowrie. Un
der the scheme which Manager Low
rie proposed to Mr. Henry, of Port
land, Ore., a small colony of farmers
can make four times the profit per
acre realized in growing wheat in the
United States.
"In the labor question this planta
tion will offer a wide field to carry out
the views and wishes of President
Dole and Cabinet, and what I believe
to be the sentiment of the majority of
the people of the country."
Benjamin Franklin Dillingham is a
native of West Brewster, Massachu
setts, having been born there Septem
ber 4th, 1844. His father was master
of a ship sailing out of the port of
Boston for many years. Young Dil
lingham's parents moved with him to
Southboro, where he enjoyed all the
educational advantages the place af
forded until he was thirteen years of
age, after which time he spent one
year in school at Worcester, Mass.
The age of fourteen found him shipped
before the mast on the Southern Cross
for a voyage around the Horn to San
Francisco, which place he reached in
3S59. He returned in the Southern
Cross to Boston, the entire trip occu
pying thirteen months. Mr. Dilling
ham remainea in tne aouinern tjross
until she was captured and burned
June 6th, 1S63, in the Atlantic by the
rebel cruiser Jjionua. He soon,
although but nineteen years of age,
secured the billet of second officer
aboard the ship Aureola, and sailed
again for San Francisco. Here he left
the Aureola and shipped under Cap-
taiu Paty in the bark Whistler,
bound for Honolulu. Three trips
were made by him between these
norts when, in 1865, to Mr. Dilling
ham's inconvenience, though not per
haps in the long run to his detriment,
he broke his leg while here, and was
unable to return when his ship sailed
one of those incidents wnicn ire-
quently have so important a bearing
upon tne atiairs oi a nation, upon
his recovery, and without any inten
tion of remaining at Honolulu, he en
tered the employ of Henry Dimond,
as a clerk, and, liking the position,
remained for three years. He then,
iu 1S69, had an established reputation
for business ability and integrity, and
with these as his only capital, to
gether with Mr. Alfred Castle, son of
S. N. Castle, of the firm of Castle &
Cooke, bought the business for $28,000
He nrst enterea upon nis coioniza
tion and railroad scheme for these Isl
ands iu 1SS5. Finally in the face of
strenuous opposition, Mr. Dillingham
obtained from the Legislature a fran
chise to build the road. This was on
September 4, 1SSS, which happened to
Uli uis -lu uinuuay. j.u lue uioviuua
year, 1SS7, Mr. iJiuinguam, uaving
obtained an option on tms iana, went
to England to endeavor to incorporate
a company to buy tne land auu inau
curate the project.
When, failure seemed imminent,
and defeat was almost staring him in
the face, Hon. Mark P. Bobiuson
came forward and rendered material
assistance. As will be seen, Mr. Dil
lingham thus wrested victory, so to
apeaK, from the very jawsol defeat.

Good health you cannot have without
pure blood; therefore, to keep well, puri
fy your blood by taking Hood's Sarsa
parilla. This medicine is peculiarly de
signed to act upon the blood, and through
that upon all the organs and tissues of the
body. It has a specific action also, and as
sists nature to expel from the system all
humors, impure particles and effete matter
through the lungs, liver, bowels, kidneys
and skin. It effectually .aids weak, im
paired and debilitated organs, invigorates
the nervous system, tones the digestion
and imparts new life and energy to all thd
functions of the body.-, A peculiarity of
Hood's Sarsaparilla is that it strengthens
and builds up the system whiles it eradi
cates disease Thus it U that nervous
ness, loss of sleep, loss of appetite and
general debility all disappear when Hood's
Sarsaparilla is- persistently taken, and
strong nerves, sweet sleep,- strong 'body,
sharp appetite, and in a -vrord, haalth and
happiness, follow tiie use of Hood's Sarsa
parilkt. " .

cheering information that with care I
might be on the top of the ground for a
number of months longer. Both doctors,
by the way, are considered here to be 'A
No. 1.' In January, 1893, 1 had dyspepsia
and a poor appetite, could eat little or
nothing but what caused great distress,
felt as though I had eaten small blocks or
stones, and also had headaches and dizzi
ness. In February I was no, better, and
in March commenced taking Hood's Sar
baparilla. The first bottle used
Cleared My Head
and before the second bottle was used np
the dyspepsia had followed thehead trou
ble. Altogether I have taken seven bot
tles and they voried wonders. I have not
taken any since last July. The dropsy in
my feet and leg3 has all disappeared. On
the 223 of last October I went to work
again, after being laid up for sixteen
months, and now I feel better in every
way than I have for ths past eight yeara.
i Honestly Believe
'it- is Hood's Sarsaparilla that has helped
me to get about again.. I either did not
have the kidney disease the doctors said
it wns, or Hood's Sarsaparilla has knocked
the spots out o! it. It is the best me'di-
tioned II. T. Donnell of Honolulu, H. I.,
whose interesting letter follows:
"Honolulu, H. I., March 3, 1824.
"C. I. Hood & Co., Lowell, Mass.:
"Dear Sirs: I have been intending to
write you a few lines in regard to Hood's
Sarsaparilla. For the past sis or seven
years I have been troubled with a lame

Jane 12, 1S92, 1 had to call in a doctor, and
atteran examination he pronounced the
case to be Bright's disease of he kidneys.
Well, after a month's doctoring I went to
the country, and took several bottles ot
medicine. I came back to town in Decem

Looking Bad and Feeling Worse.
I called in another doctor, who, after an
examination, also pronounced it Bright's

almost everything that people have told
me of or what I thought might help me.
