THE COMING KING
Trip of the U. S. Consul-General. Visiting More Important Districts. Parker Lands Kamalle Section. Yields Promised. Mr. C. L. Wight, of the Wilder Steamship company, is very well pleased over his latest trip through coffee districts of Hawaii. The special purpose of this journey was to show to Mr. Haywood, the Consul-General for tne United States, the condition of this newer industry of the Islands. That gentleman returns much impressed with what he saw and with the very apparent possibilities of the field. Leaving per the S. S. Kinau, the first stop was made at Kawaihae, where the members of the party were the guests of Mr. and Mrs. Paul Jarret, Here a look was taken over the extensive lands of Samuel Parker. Quite an experiment farm is maintained. The corn was the best noticed on the trip. The coffee, yet quite young, is flourishing. The adaptability of the land for these two and other crops is satisfactorily demonstrated. The party was next entertained by Mr. W. H. Rickard. Considerable time was spent in that vicinity viewing closely the holdings of the Portuguese homesteaders. Mr. Wight declares he is more satisfied that ever before that any man of ordinary intelligence and industry can do exceedingly well on one of these homesteads. A settler named De Mello is one of the many proving that one man or family can farm even more successfully and profitably here than in the states. All of these people grow and sell coff eee. corn and potatoes. There are about forty families in the district and not a single one is running behind. The extent of a farm is from 17 to 20 acres. From Honokaa the travelers proceeded to Paauhau and there went over the Paauilo district thoroughly. These holdings are 70 acres each and the owners of the places visited are as follows: H. Louisson, Sheriff L. A. Andrews, Chas. Notley, the three G. P. and J. A. Wilder, R. H. Davis and Mr. Lydgate. The soil here is very fertile. All the places are comparatively new, but the success of both coffee and corn is assured. At J. M. Horner's place in Hamakua picking has started in and a yield of 32 tons of cleaned coffee is confidently counted upon. This plantation is 100 acres in extent and the trees are from 1 to 5 years old. Mr. Horner has show that coffee on Hawaii pays and pays well. All of the plantations on the Olaa road, between Hilo and the Volcano house were inspected. They invariably look better than ever and all of the owners are more sanguine than before. The crop -n ill be larger than, last year. Work at gathering has already commenced and shipments will soon be made. Puna was next visited. After viewing the established plantations of Peter Lee and Goudie Bros, the party went into the Kamalle district, which might be called new, but which has prospects that are most alluring. The holders are: H. Rycroft, Miss Lita Wilder, Arthur Wilder, C. L. Wight, W. F. Thrum, Judge A. W. Carter, Geo. R. Cartel, O. Sorenson, Geo. Angus, A. Callahan, Chas. Hyde. Two California gentlemen at Hilo will purchase land in Kamaile so soon as the appraisement is made. They are waiting. At least two crops will be taken off here this season. There will be from 700 to 1,000 pounds of coffee each from the holdings of Miss Lita Wilder and Arthur Wilder. This is considered remarkable and most encouraging in view of the fact that the trees are but 25 months old. So much is thought of the Kamaile tract by what is shown and by what the experts anticipate that a landing for the section will be established at once by the Wilder Steamship company. Mr. Wight selected the place, Kehana, and has given the orders for construction. The Consul-General for the United States was struck with the fertility of the soil, the readiness of cultivation, the fine results from labor and capital. He speaks highly of the roads and enthusiastically of the hospitality of the people everywhere. Mr. Haywood will not deal in details at present, but will send from his office an extended report. Mr. Wight is happy in finding confirmed to the letter all that he has ever claimed for the various districts in which he has taken an interest and for which he has labored. The Hotel Scheme. MR. EDITOR: An item In your issue of Saturday, regarding a proposed hotel for Honolulu, has attracted the attention of a great many people interested in the progress and development of the Island. It is quite evident that we are in need of better hotel accommodations for the people who will come to Honolulu after annexation takes place. To me it seems that the accommodations are inadequate, and hardly fit when the Board of Education declined to take over the leading hotel for a school building, on account of the bad sanitary condition. $ Honolulu has wanted a new hotel for several years, but never worse than now, because age has detracted from the beauties of the Hawaiian and the building will continue to grow older and less fit for the entertainment of guests, even though an excellent manager be In nharge. New paint and new furniture will not make a new and modern building out of an old one. SB I do not consider that any plan for a hotel flush with the sidewalk should be considered at this time; people who come to our Paradise wish to be in a place where the surroundings art pleasant and where they may admire nature from a lanai rather than to be cooped up in a room. I believe there are locations available for such a hotel as Honolulu needs and I know there are enough public-spirited men in Honolulu willing to risk their money in the venture, believing that a first HAWAIIAN GAZETTE: TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 1897. SEMI-WEEKLY. class hotel will do more to induce tourists to come here, than all the photo- l-graphs and magazine articles combin ed. I stand ready to subscribe $o,000 when the right location is found. MERCHANT. Honolulu, November 1, 1S97. PREMIUM ON BONDS. Ready Sale at Good Advance of Hawaiian Securities.

Minister Damon and his associates are very much pleased over this trans action. HADMANYFRIENDS Sorrow Over Demise of John Grace. Sad Funeral The Services. Many Floral Offerings At the Grave. One of the saddest and one of the largest funerals Honolulu has ever had was that of the late John Grace. The attendance included a great crowd of friends of the family and strong and representative delegations from Excelsior and Harmony Lodges of Odd Fellows, besides the First Company of Sharpshooters. Many prominent citizens were at Harmony hall and followed the remains to Nuuanu cemetery. From the earlier hours of the forenoon till the cortege left the place of the services, flowers were brought and deposited upon or near the coffin. The offerings were in large number and of great and beautiful variety. There were bunches of the rarest and sweetest of island flowers and many kinds of set pieces. There were crosses, an chors, wreaths and leis. From the men in the same business as Mr. Grace had been engaged, came a broken whejel. The hall could not contain one-fourth of those who came to pay their last respects to the man who had gained their friendship and held the confidence of the entire community. Dr. C. T. Rodgers, as head of the Harmony Lodge of Odd Fellows, presided. Rev. Alex Mackintosh conducted the Episcopal service and Wray Taylor was organist The hymn chosen was "Blest Be the Tie That Binds." Several of the immediate members of the family were so affected at the last, that they required the attention of friends. Many who had known the man in life, shed tears of sorrow over his loss and the distress of his loved ones. Rev. Alex Mackintosh read from the ritual of the Odd Fellows at the grave and then each of the lodge brothers dropped a spring of mrytle. upon the casket. CIRCUIT COURT NOTES.

Stanley Appoint-, ed Circuit Judge. Action of Cabinet Saturday. Choice Practically Unanimous. W. F. L. Stanley was appointed second Judge of the. First Circuit Court Saturday to succeed Judge A. Perry, promoted to be first judge, vice A. W. Carter, resigned. The appointment was made in a special session of the Cabinet called for the purpose. Judge Stanley is at present the youngest man on the bench, having been born in Dublin, Ireland, in March, 1872. After receiving a com- WlPllllIlt JUDGE W. F. L. STANLEY. (Photo by Davey.) mon school education in Dublin be began the preliminary study of law in Trinity College, but had not advanced far when he decided to come to Hawaii with Sir Robert Herron and family, arriving here in May, 1893. Almost immediately on arrival he entered the law office of Ex-Judge A. S. Hartwell and renewed his studies. In March, 1895, he passed a very creditable examination and was admitted to the bar with a certificate to practice in all the Courts of the Islands In the November following a copartJ nership was formed between Hartwell, L. A. Thurston and Mr. Stanley. This continued until April, 1896, when Messrs. Thurston and Stanley withdrew and they have continued their business relations since then. During Mr. Thurston's absence in the United States the large practice of the firm has been attended to by Mr. Stanley. He has been a successful practitioner at the bar and is a man of high moral worth and integrity. Though a young man his ability as a lawyer is acknowledged by his associates at the bar. In October, 189G, he was married to Miss Danford, daughter of Lady Herron. The appointment of Mr. Stanley was rather a surprise as he was at no tim considered a candidate. When spoken to by the President and urged to ac cept the place he declined on the score of age and lack of experience. It is known that he called on the President Saturday morning for the purpose of declining the appointment but older heads prevailed upon him and he ac cepted. At least one member of thp Cabinet favored tho appointment of Paul Neumann, but the majority fav ored Mr. Stanley. Judge Carter retires from the bench with a fine record and with the best wishes of all. He will engage in prac tice here and will probably secure the Thurston-Stanley offices on Merchant street.
