Tho most powerful tugboat In the

to bo stationed permanently.
Tho U. S. tugboat Iroquois arrived In
port qulto early on Saturday morning,
making tho run from San Francisco
In eight nnd one-half days. Had not
a serious gale been encountered sever
al hundred miles out from here, tho

on the evening before. She brought

ashore, diligently prosecuting an In
vestigation. The Manna Loa will prob
ably have news on her arrival tomor
row. That the wrecked schooner may turn
out to be the Emma Claudlna, Is feared
by some in the Kohala district. Tho
Emma Claudlna which is a three
masted schooner flying the American
flag, discharged a cargo of lumber ot
Honolpu, and loft that port for San
Francisco on December l(i. Sho sailed
Nothing has been heard or seen of
the Emma Claudlna since, although
she .had hardly time to reach her des
tination by January 19, which Is the
latest date of arrivals in San Fran
cisco, received in Honolulu. A corres
pondent in Kohala gavo this Informa
tion in a letter to a member of the
Commodoro George Beckley of the
Klnau stated yesterday that tho Ktnau
passed by tho wreck. Ho Inquired of
somo fishermen concerning It and
learned that tho trunk of a man had
washed ashore. An American flag had
also been taken from tho forecastle.
There was no freight in the schooner
or floating about tho wreck.
Purser Thomas C. White, of tlie
Noeau, handed this report Into the
Inter-Island Company yesterday:
"A largo wooden hull found ashore
at Apua, Hamakua, with an American
flag attacked to it. A body was found
on tho beach. Tho Sheriff has gone
over to Investigate tho matter."
The Kohala correspondent of the Ad
vertiser writes by tho Klnau, that tho
wrecked schooner has bcon ashoro at
Nlulll, for three, weeks at least. Somo
natives spread the news through tho
district at that time, but the story was

onco with Frank J. Hocl, eecrctary ot
McCord-Biady Company, the big cofteo
wholesalers for tho Trans-Mlsslsslppl
States, on tho future prices ot Hawaii
Mr. Wight is of the opinion that
prices will drop within tho next two
yenrs, In it letter to I-and Commis
sioner Brown, he aaid: "Thero Is a
largo over-production at present of tho
low gradca ot coffee. Rio is selllac
tor C vents, Santos for "! cents, whllo
Hawaiian coffees arc worth about 15
cents. In my opinion there is no over
production ot the high Grade coffee;,
such as we ralso hero. ! look, how
oter, for a further drop in prices with
in the next two jears. After that I
look for a sharp advance. 1 firmly be

Ill his conuultntlun with McCord
Brady Company') representative, Mr.
Wight took this same pun! tlon. Mr.
liocl's views did not coincide with Mr.
Wight's conclusions, he contending
that tho fall lu prices would be cun
llned entirely to tho lower grado cof
fcos. Mr. ltoel Hays that in his opin
ion, Hawaii can product) us flno a grade
of coffee as grows In Java or Mexico.
Tho only drawback In Hawaii is that
not all the conccx aro properly pre
imrcd for tho market. The defective
coffee- that H shipped to the markets
In tho Suites, Is obliged to wait for a
buyer at a low price. Mr. Hool assort
ed that it the Hawaiian planters would
only exercise care lit the picking, pulp
ing, fermenting and drying of their
coficcs, they could lest assured that
their coffees will command in tho fu
ture as good, if not better price, thou

Mr. Roht. W. Shingle, Hawaiian Com
missioner, Omaha, Nebraska.
Dear Sir: It Is with pleasure that
I titato that although 1 have been tak
ing ordovt- for coffee from consumers,
and demonstrating for the oast flvo
or hIx years, during which tlmo I havo
demonstrated for somo of tho most
popular brands of coffee. Including-high-priced
Juva and Mocha mixtures,
I havo never demonstrated a coffeo
that was as easy to introduce und take
orders for ns tho high grado Hawaiian
eoiTce that has lieen served lu connec
tion with tho Hawaiian Exhibit at
Omaha during tho past flte months.
llio strength of tho coffee Ih almost
marvellous when one stops to consider
that one xund ot Hawaiian coffee will
produce as much (ground) liuld coffee
as one and two-thirds pounds ot
ground, high-priced Java and Mocha
mixtures. Then again, the flavor and
arcm.i of tlsc coffee cquala o- surpiia
bps any coffee pioduced as fur as I have
been able to Irani. Tho thought has
occurred to mo that the largo eoftoo
growers in Hawaii should know an to
tho spcclcl merit ot their coffee as
compared with tho colfeo grown In oth
er countries, us Its great Htrength
should add very materially to it value
In addition to Its other flno qualities.
Tho high grado Hawaiian coffee
should command u npeclnl value also
for blending with coffees grown In
other coimtii'S. Should you doslro
