PLANTERS' L. AND S. CO.
Annual Meeting of I lie &hareholler.
Tuesday, October 10th.
The shareholders of the Planter.-)' Labor
and .Supply Company resumed their an
nual fitting at 10 a. in. Tuesday, Mr. II.
I. Baldwin presiding.
Mr. J. M. Horner, Chairman of the
committee appointed yesterday to revise
the Constitution, reported that he was
sorry the committee had not been able to
doVery much, a.s the time was so short.
They had arrived at the conclusion that
there was not much to be done unless a
radical change were to be made, and that
would take a long time. They recommended
that by-law 11 be amended to read as fol
The Board of Trustees may levy assess
ments on the capital stock of the company
as provided in article 8, and may fix the
date (not less than thirty daj's from the
time of passing the resolution) at which
said assessment, if unpaid, shall have be
come delinquent, and any stock upon
which any assessment may become delin
quent shall be advertised by the Secretary
in some one newspaper published in Hono
lulu for the period of thirty days, and if
the said assessment .shall still remain un
paid, the Board of Trustees shall declare
the same forfeited to the corporation, and
the holder or holders shall be debarred
from any rights or privileges based upon
the possession of such shares of stock pro
vided that any member may at any time
surrender any part of his stock to the
Treasurer of the company upon his pay
ment of all assessments that may have be
come due and payable on such stock so sur
rendered up to the time of such surrender.
And the Board of Trustees may then issue
new certificates of stock in place of shares
so forfeited or surrendered, the same as
if the forfeited or surrendered shares had
never been issued.
The words in brackets constitute the
Mr. Homer said the object of the com
mittee had been to allow those who have
more shares than they thought they ought
to pay assessment lor to surrender, so as
to bring them more on an equality.
Further, he said, the committee recom
mended and urged upon all parties inter
ested in the sugar industry throughout the
Islands to help to carry out more vigor
ously the objects of this company by sub
scribing for one share approximately for
every three tons of their yearly average
production. They urged the adoption
of this recommendation as a reso
lution. If this could be carried out the
assessment would probably not be more
than 10 cents per share, and the associa
tion would be held together as an organ
ized body ready for action whenever it
might be needed. That was all the com
mittee had been able to accomplish, and
on these points they were unanimous, ex
cepting Mr. Dole, who had not yet seen the
form in which the recommendations had
been drawn up.
Mr. A. II. Smith considered delinquent
shareholders should pay all assessments
for the previous twelve months, being en
titled to the privilege provided in section
11, as amended, and moved an amendment
to that effect.
Mr. J. M. Horner seconded the amend
ment. The President said this amendment in
section 11 was intended to meet the case of
those who were friendly towards the com
pany and who had not actually severed
their connection with it.
Mr. J. Austin wished for further infor
mation. How many shares are there
which would come under this provision at.
say, 23 cents? It should be so arranged
that the delinquent shares pay a reasona
ble amount of the expenses.
The Seeretary said that those who went
out with, the Spreekels Sugar Company
were no longer on the books. There were
3,825 delinquent shares, the assessment
amounting to $2,015.
Mr. A. H. Smith asked whether delin
quents would invariably have to pay up
their assessments for the year, or whether
this could be arranged1 by a simple' resolu
tion. The Secretary said if the idea is to let in
all delinquents, including such a the
Spreckels Company, why not say so in the
Mr. Austin moved that it be left to the
discretion of the Trustees, and that the
bylaws be passed without prescribing the
Colonel Spalding said he did not feel
like talking much "this morning. A gen
tleman, after reading the report of yester
day's proceedings in that morning's Ad
vertiser, wanted to know whether it was
the planters' meeting or Colonel Spalding's
meeting. He would like the Advertiser
to change its headings. In relation to this
amendment, undoubtedly any num
ber can give up his stock at any time.
They had allowed their members to give
up their stock by .giving r otice to the Sec
retary. Some have not done so, and they
stood as delinquents; others were not
treated so. Therefore, fhere was a sort of
anomaly. Many had notified the Secre
tary that they were no longer members;
others had not. This amendment simply
made it more explicit. At the same time
it is the intention of the by-laws that other
certificates may be issued. In reality it is
just the same in either case, only without
the amendment the Trustees have to sell
the stock of delinquents. . That is where
the amendment comes in. It does not
say they shall issue to every man who ap
plies, but if the Board see fit they may.
The stock, having no intrinsic value, but
; ov.ly certain privileges and liabilities, then
J the Board may iv-ue to anyone whom tht y
deem a proper person.
j Mr. Horner said the committee did not
j have exa ly that view before them. That
: feature .-eemed letter than what the com
mittee looked at. But they had the fur
ther object of removing as far as possible
these hardships iion planters who own a
large amount of stock to ease them a lit
tle so that they could resign a part.
The Treasurer moved the adoption of
Mr. Austin seconds! the motion, which
wa-j carried unanimously.
The other recommendation of tLe com
mittee was then considered.
The Chairman said the basis on which
shares were originally taken upwa two
tons to the share. No one, of rourse,
could coin pel a member of the soc iety to
take more shares than he wanted to, but
nearly all did so in about that proportion.
The amount of production was about
doubled since then. There was no neces
sity to take up shares in that proportion
now. For this reason the proportion had
been changed from two to three tons.
Mr. Horner said that the committee, in
looking over the matter, saw the necessity
of this society keeping its charter legal.
The charter requires two-thirds of the ,
shares to be out. If the people can be ;
persuaded to take up shares in this ratio, j
there would be some 2'J,000 shares. Then
the assessment will be very light not
more than 10 or 15 cents per share. Mr.
Jones had said yesterday that they would
require $1,000, irrespecti ve of the maga
zine, to run the society; it would there
fore greatly benefit the society to have
The Treasurer presumed it did not make
it obligatory on planters to take that pro
portion of shares.. For instance, suppos
ing the yield of the Spreekels Sugar Com
pany to be 15,000 tons, their proportion
would be 5,000 shares. If they wanted to
take .n0 could thev do so?
Mr. Horner said that if he voted for the
amendment he should consider that he
pledged himself to take about that pro
portion of shares.
The President said it would not be ob
ligatory; it was simply recommended.
Mr. Horner said the committee based
their conclusions on what the Treasurer
had said the day before, and on the proba
ble cost of "The Planters' Monthly."
The Treasurer moved the adoption of
Mr. Horner seconded the motion.
Mr.Schaefer moved an amendment that
the last part of the resolution be omitted,
viz., that giving the proportion of shares
to the tonnage.
Colonel Spalding seconded the amend
ment, which was carried.
Mr. J. M. Horner moved that the
same Trustees be elected that served last
Colonel Spalding said that could not be
done without changing the by-laws. It
would be better to name the hour at which
the election would take place. He moved
that it be considered as special business at
in. Agreed to.
Colonel Spalding said he would like to
get the sense of the meeting as to (hang
ing the by-law relating to the number of
Trustees. The old rule said what was
everybody's business was nobody's busi
ness. It was also said that there is wis
dom in a multiplicity of counsellors, but it
was sometimes found to be the reverse.
He doubted whether thirteen members of
a Board of Trustees would take as much
interest in the affairs of the company as a
smaller number. It would be more clearly
seen perhaps if there were thirty members.
The more men we have to attend to cer
tain work, the more w e have to leave that
work for others to do. Seven men would
give more individual attention to business
than thirteen, and perhaps five would give
Mr. Horner How about three?
Colonel Spalding replied that if one man
had the management of affairs in this
country he w ould probably give them more
attention than the got now.
The Treasurer said only one man is run
ning this thing now. Colonel Spalding in
ferred him to mean that only one was do
ing the talking. The Treasurer said he
referred to the country.
Colonel Spaulding said they had tried
having men on the Board of Trustees who
lived in Honolulu in order to get a quorum
more easily, and they had seen the result
of that. Mr. Macfie said yesterday that
work had been done by the Board of Trus
tees that he knew nothing about. He was
under the impression the Board had rec
ommended the dissolution of the company.
If they had a Board thoroughly represen
tative of the planting interests these men
would take it to heart and go to Honolulu
whenever there was anything of real im
portance to take them there. They would
then get better results from a meeting once
a year than from half a dozen meetings of
men who were unable to adequately express
the views of the planters, such as those
resident in Honolulu. There were very
seldom more than five present out of the
thirteen. The cithers did not know when
they met. He moved that article (J of the
by-laws be amended so as to read as origin
The Treasurer seconded the motion.
There was a great deal of truth in what
Colonel Spalding had said. There were
often four" present and they had to wait
half an hour for the fifth. They had some
times had to carry matters through to get
the apitroval of the full Board afterwards.
He believed it would be easier to get a full
meeting with a small Board.
Mr. Austin said he originally had the im
pression that it was best to have a large
Board composed of planters all over the
group. He was now thoroughly cured
of that impression. He thought it advisa
ble to reduce the Board to seven, or even
below it, and that it should consist of men
re-iding in Honolulu.
Mr. Macfie expressed dissent from the
opinions of the previous speakers. He was
opposed to the motion. The number of
Trustees w as originally seven and it had
been increased to thirteen after a good
deal of discussion at a very much larger
meeting than the present one. The Trus
tees were then chiefly residents of Hono
lulu. A good deal of dissatisfaction was
expressed by the planters because there
were only a small number, and the impres
sion got abroad that the company was be
ing run by a clique. There were no
grounds for it, but they got that idea into
their heads. It was represented that the
planters had not a sufficient voice in the
affairs of the company, In order to remove
that impression the number was increased.
In regard to the non-attendance of the
easilv explained. The
rest utxn them. . He bimrli had
been at one meeting, although he had been
! frequently in Honolulu, and could have
; arranged to attend. Others, too, had
! actually been in Honolulu without kiur.v
' ing there was a meeting. If the Trustees
were not notified, they could not be
blamed for non-attendance. He had
; spoken of it, and had been informed that
i no matters of importance were likely to
i come up. That was a very poor excuse,
j because any Trustee might bring a matter
j not thought of by any one ele. The idea
! had certainly got abroad that the Trustees
I were desirous of the company being dis
solved, lie thought it would be a great
i mi-take to reduce the number unless there
' were some real disadvantage in the larger
numlKT. There should be members at the
meeting- to represent all phases of thought
! among planters. The Honolulu residents
cannot properly represent country feeling.
They look at things in a different light.
Hon. C. li. Bishop asked if there was no
provision in the constitution for members
of the Board to be notified.
The President replied there was a pro
vision that all important business should
come on at quarterly meetings, and that
the members be notified.
The Secretary said that was contained in
The President said the idea of that was
that all important business should be noti
fied. It was calculated that there were
enough in Honolulu to do any business
that might come up incidentally. People
had the idea that the Trustees should be
thoroughly representative, and therefore
the number was increa-ed. He consid
ered a Board of seven v"buld be too small.
Mr. Horner considered there would be
as much difficulty in getting a quorum of
four out of seven as five out of thirteen,
perhaps more. There were alwaj'S five of
the Trustees in Honolulu. He had been
notified a time or two, but it had not been
convenient to attend. He knew the others
The Secretary said that the reason noti
fications had not been sent out was be
cause the resolution said all important
business should be attended to at quar
terly meetings, to give the Trustees in the
other islands an opportunity to attend.
There were important matters at the time
that resolution was passed which had not
come up since getting laborers, for ex
ample. Almost the only business during
the year was the passing of bills. The
question outside this was whether the
company should bear the expense of the
book by Mr. Whitney. If it were stated
definitely that there should be a meeting
every quarter, whether there was any
business or not, the Trustees would then
be summoned, but it was not worth while
to take planters away from their work to
Colonel Spalding was satisfied there had
been too many meetings at which the
business was not important. The Board
should not be obliged to run around to get
a quorum to audit bills. If a member
conies up and finds that his time has been
frittered away, he is going to be very care
fid the second time. When he was Presi
dent of the company they frequently had
meetings when he happened to be in Hono
lulu, but they could not have them regu
larly, because they could not tell when
they would be here. The idea of reducing
the number was not to make it easier to
get a quorum; they might even delegate
unimportant business to an agent for the
year. Mr. Jones could have clone it just
as well alone. But it is a stock company,
and the' are obliged to have the meetings
in accordance with the charter. But sup
posing a question of some new experiment
came up, the members would be there to a
man if it were anything important. They
would not, however, come simply because
it was the quarterly meeting. Now that
"The Planters' Monthly" had been separ
ated from the Board ot Trustees, he hoped
there would be no occasion for meeting
more than once a year. If anything of
real importance comes up, by all means
bring them to Honolulu, first inquiring of
them whether it was of sufficient interest.
The question of immigration might have
to be considered. No one could tell what
was of interest except a practical planter.
If men accepted the office of Trustees, let
them do so with the idea of carrying out
the duties pertaining to the office, not
leave them to others.
Mr. Macfie coincided with what had been
said about the multiplicity of meetings.
He would suggest quarterly or half-yearly
meetings, as the case might be, at a known
mate. With regard to this matter of con
tracts, it had been spoken of at nearly
every meeting. One of the greate.-t ad
vantages of the company is that it has
great infiueiice in obtaining for the plan
ters contracts which are really satisfactory.
All Government contracts were more or
less unsatisfactory, and last year it was in
tended to draw up a model contract and
submit it with the expressed desire that it
be adopted. He was not aware whether
anything of the kind had been done.
The Secretary said nothing had been
Hon. C. It. Bishop said people had come
here with different contracts, and planters
were glad to take them. It was "Hub
son's choice." But when important mat
ters such as labor contracts came up," there
should be considerable representation.
The whole thirteen Trustees should be
notified, though there would of course
always be some unable to attend.
The President said that at the time this
rule was made there was more business
than now. Of course, it may not be neees
sary to call the Trustees to Honolulu for
a whole year. With regard to what had
been said about it not being necessary to
have a quorum residing in Honolulu, there i
was manv a time when some item of busi
ness would come up which needed attend-
ing to immediately, ana mere wouiu oe no i
time to send to the other islands to get
Mr. T. K. Walker said that.au agent likes
to act as nearly as he can from the stand-"
point of a planter. 3Iost of them, he be
lieved, were anxious to do this. During
the time that there had been thirteen
Trustees they had been represented by
three, who formed a majority of five.
The motion was then put and lost.
At 12:15 p. m. the jneeting adjourned
until 2 o'clock.
On reassembling, the President, who rep
resented the Committee on Fertilizers and
Seed Cane, read his report, which related
to technical matters. It was received and
ordered to be printed in "The Planters'

Mr. Horner asked if there was no other
objection beyond the trouble of getting a
The Treasurer No; but w never had a
Trustees' meeting with thirteen present.
Mr. Horner Why not take three or four
as a quorum ?
The Treasurer said it w as not so much
on account of the quorum, but it v.a? better
to have nine and all present than thirteen
and only some present.
Mr. Macrie If there is a difficulty in get
ting five out of thirteen, in what way will it
be easier to get five out of nine ?
The Treasurer said he never made that
statement, but nine was a better body to
work with than thirteen.
Mr. Horner moved an amendment that
the quorum be four, with the full number
nine, according to Mr. Jones' motion.
The Treasurer accepted the amendment.
Mr. Ail-tin seconded it. Carried.
The bu-.iness of electing Trustees wa
next entered upon; a ballot was taken and
the Secretary and Treasurer were ap
pointed scrutineers. Whilst the result of
the voting was being ascertained an im

Atherton, (i. II. Dole and Charles Notley
were also nominated.
Mr. P. C. Jones, representing the Reci
procity Committee, said the committee had
not been called together, nor had he written
out any report. He had thought a good
deal about it, and there were some things
he would not like to put on paper. He
spoke of Mr. Carter as being a hard and
faithful worker on behalf of the Treaty at
Washington. He had the confidence of the
Senators there, and great credit was due to
him. Two years ago, when Colonel Spald
ing returned, he made use of the expression
that there was more danger of the Treaty
being broken from this end than that.
He must not say all that he could say, for
he was terribly afraid of printers' ink.
Mr. R. A. Macfie, Jr., representing the
Transportation Committee, presented his
report, which was of a purely technical
character. It was received, and ordered
to be printed in "The Planters' Monthly."
Mr. J. M. Lidgate, of the Committee on
the Manufacture of Sugar, had forwarded
his report to the Secretary, by whom it
was read. The report was of a similar
character to the other, and was dealt with
in a like manner.

Water Supply fr Ilanoluln
KoadVrs of the Apw.rtiser havo V-ceft
kept informed from time to time of the
progress made- in laving the main for
an ineroa-soil supply of pure and whole--somc
water for the city of Honolulu.
This work was started in July lat on
lehalfof the Government, for the pur
pose of utilizing the imported iron pipes,
thereby providing an adequate water
supply for our steadily increasing popu
lation. Details showing the progress of
the work have appeared from time to
time in our columns. Yesterday a repre
sentative of the Advertiser, accom
panied by Mr. Charles B. Wilson, Super
intendent of Water Works, paid a visit
of iiiioction to the grounds, and found
marked progress towards an early com
plction of the work. Unless the charac
ter olthe country to be passed through
is much more diiiieult than is appre
hended, the water will be running
through ten thousand feet of mains
within three weeks from date. This
water will le taken from the stream as
it passes over its rocky bed, sparkling
and cool, away up the Valley, not very
far from the known source of supply.
The main has been laid to the brink of
the jstreani, and when the through con
nection has been made the water will be
diverted into the pipes, thus, to a very
great extent, avoiding the necessity for a
reservoir. It would le impossible to
select a spot more favorably placed than
this one for such a purpose, and Colonel
Spreekels' enthusiasm, after in-qecting
the source of water supply, was quite
within modi-rate bounds. The late Min
ister of the Interior, acting upon the idea
of Colonel Spreekels, and the suggestions
of the Superintendent of Water Works,
authorized the employment of free and
contract labor to lay the mains. This
has been done under the active super
vision of Mr. Wilson, who promises fair,
at no distant date, to prevent the possi
bility of a water famine under any pro
bable combination of drouth and waste.
The cost at which the work has been
done is a mere bagatelle, and its pay
ment need not annoy anybody.

How Tiook Kevlewa Are AVrirti-
It would be hard to say how many con
scienceless words are written about books
every year in the daily newspapers of the
United States. Certainly more book-reviews
are written without conscience than
without intelligence. If you have ever
chanced to see a half-dozen out of the 200
or 300 "notices" which every book of im
portance receives, have you not sometimes
wondered (if you have yourself read the
book and formed an opinion upon it) how
any one exercising the responsible func
tion of critic could permit himself to
write as you find three out of the bIx do
around, above and be'ow a book, in
every fashion save stiaightforwardly, as
if he had read it, and had some notions
I say that more reviews are written
without conscience than without intelli
gence; and if you will take pains to fol
low a new book only a little way on ivs
journey through the hands of the review
ers you will agree with me. The hurried,
driven, over-busy newspaper writer often
does not read the books he writes about:
and what he tays regarding them when
he comes to cook up the "notice," which is
necessary to keep the good-will of the pub
Usher sending the book, is not inlre
quently the result either of an lmprea
sion caught from a hasty glance through
the volume, from the opinion of a friend
who has read it, or, least honest of ah.
from the criticism of some more faithfu.

The Cheerfulness ot Crippled Men.
"The cheerfulness of crippled men take.
me off my feet. The omer night I at
tended a little reception at which ther
were present a dozen or twenty old soi
diers. Some of them had wooden legs
others had crooked legs or maimed legs
and there was in fact scarcely a whoie
bodied man among them, and yet whei
the music took a martial turn all those olo
fellows insist .-d on dancing. It was the
most remarkable performance I have evei
seen, and fur ten minutes a good many oi
us could not tell whether we were laugh
ing or crying. But the boys seemed to
enjoy it, and when their blood was up they
were as reckless as a lot of romping lads
and girls in attempting all the extraor
dinary capers incidental to a frolic-tome
dance." Inter Ocean "Curbstone" Cray

It is a pity that the princess of Wales,
who has for so many years borne, and
deservedly so, the reputation of being the
best dressed woman in London, should be
stow so little attention and taste on the
dressing of her daughters. Anything
more sombre and out of keeping with
place and season than their costumes the
other afternoon at the Greek theatre I
have seldom seen; and the same remark
would as aptly apply to their appearance
at the opening of the colonial exhibition.
