On Saturday, the 18tb, they had a conference with the sugar planter of the district regarding the present condition of the labor market, and the relations existing between the planters and laborers. The planters are strongly opposed to the settlement of disputed by an arbi tration board, because In the Hilo district the Police Magistrate Js honest, and gives satisfaction to all parties. Difference between the em ployers and laborers rarely occur, be cause the planters take care that jus tice is done to the latter. The Hilo planters are inclined to believe that labor troubles usually arise from in competent lunae or from incompetent native magistrates. The Commissioners have had several conferences with the coffee planters in the Olaa district. Tiie.e planters have recently formed the 41 Hawaiian Coffee Planters' Association," and unite for common benefit. These planters bpgin to see that in the rapid development of the cotl'ee Industry there will soon be serious labor questions. Additional land is cleared for coffee every day, and the Jabor ued draws more or leas on the sugar industry. Mr. Severance returns to Honolulu today by the Kiuau, and Mr. Arm strong remains over until the 2Sth in 'order to make furthvr investigations. All Hilo has ceased praying for rain Mnce the copious falls of the past few days have so amply supplied the de mauds. It has been very rough in the bay, with no possibility of using the wharf in town; in fact there has not been much comfort in rowing be tween tho vessels and the landing at Waiakea, Friday evening of last week was the scene of a merry gathering or dancers- at the Union tcboolhouse. Mesdames G. 1C. Wilder and W. a. Hardy were the prime movers in the affair. The music, which was fur- jiiahed by an orchestra of six native boys, encouraged me oancing to con tinue for about two hours, when re freb.nrut were at-rveI And the danc ing continued a while longer. On Monday evening the moonlight lured pome eight or ten couples of Jroung ladies and gentlemen for a ioneback ride. The regular monthly church social was held at the parlors of the First Foreign Church on Tuesday evening lat. It was largely attended and the time pafsed with its usual pleasan tries. It was intended that the ques tion of opening a free reading room in Hilo should be discussed at this meeting, but owing to the absence of some of the promoters of thispiopo eition the matter was not brought up. It is to be hoped that in the near fu ture some provision will be made for better care of the valuable little libra ry owned by the Hilo Book Associa tion and at the present being kept in the ofQce of the telephone company. The members of this association are the oues most interested in the establishment of a reading-room, where tome one shall be hired to give especial attention to the care of the books and where visitors and subscribers to the library can sit down and quietly enjoy reading their favorite authors. As it Is now sub scribers call for and return books, but the telephone office affords no place for those who might wish to remain among the books. Minister J. A. King Is in town and has been manifesting considerable in terest in the condition of the roads, both Rood and bad. OnThui8day Minister King with Mr. Chae. A. Wright of Honolulu, and Messrs. C. C. Kennedy, W. W. Good ale, J. A. Scott, H. Deacon, and E. K. Richards Inspected the workings of the new hoist employed at Pepeekeo landing for loading sugar and dis charging freight. This hoist, recently introduced by Capt. William Matson of San Francisco, consists of a wire cable running from the sugar-bouse out over the deck of a vessel to an anchor lying outside the vessel, so that the cages, or wooden plat forms, running on the cable, carry tho tugar directly from the ware house to the hold of the vessel without further hauling. Each plat form carries about twenty bags of su gar, and at present they are loading 750 bags an hour. With a little addi tional experience iu handling the ca ble, it is expected to be able to load 1000 bags an hour. A similar construc tion Is under way at Hakalau. Minister King, Mr. Wight and Mr. Bruuer, accompanied by Mr. R. A. Lyman, took occasdou to make a trip into Puna this week. Mr. Wight went with a view to looking up a de sirable tract on which to establish a summer home. The Kinau made her regular month ly trip to Pohoiki Saturday. An ex cursion party had planned to go on her, but the weather did not oflVr any Inducements so they postponed the trip until next mouth. Very rouh weather was encountered by the Ki nau alonr the Puna coast, and she was five hours in making the trip which usually requires but three. In dis charging her freight at Pohoiki, one of her boats capsized and lost its load J of freight. lhe boat was ilasheu again-t the rocks and badly damaged. On Friday morning a prty f six gentlemen escorted Minister King to Kaiwiki for the purpose of impres BUSY OWN sing upon him the gnat Heredity for new rofd throughout this district. llur h ;i x -lh nt piec of road, it bout two iijile long, extending from the main loail at Wainaku unthiougli Wainaku Plantation as fur as the Kai wiki lionre-teadH, but there is nothing like a road running fiom this point to ilit- various hoine-teadH.. Minister King saw at once the need of this im provement and will do what he ran toward having the road built. The woods at Kaiwiki are most teautiful and picturesque, the view of Hilo antJ the bay is grand, and the soil is per fectly adapted to the raitdng of coffee. The Hawaiian Land aud Improve ment Company, Limit', has sub-divided its land on the Volcano road, eleven miles from Hilo, into 10, 20, 40 and 50-acre lots and will place the same upon the market at once. Mr. L. Aungst spent a few days In Hilo laut week on bis way to Kona. He was accompanied from Honokaa to Kau by Mr. D. Williams, of the Chicago Link Belt Company, who Is combining businef-s with a pleasure trip around this side of the island. Mr. W. S. Barnes, father of Mrs. G. K. Wildtr, who has been confined to his room for the past two week, is feeling much better, though not ablo to be out yat. Deputy-Sheriff Hardy ha gone to Kohala on a two weeks' business trip. Mr. Forbes, manager of Kukuibaele Plantation, spent a few days in town last week. UAUl'3 BIGGBST ROUND-UP. Trial f Yoiug lie for Bribery Htorm Sims; a Fiercely. Maui, March 10.-The most inter esting incident of the week on Maul was the trial of YoHng Ilea for brib ery before the Police Court at Wai luku. 8heriff Andrews, as prosecut ing officer for the Government, con sumed ail of Friday, the 8th lust., in presenting what was thought to be almost conclusive evidence against the defeudant. Duriug the present week, Messrs. Chillingswortb, Ixng, Kekoikai and Kalama, attorneys for Young Hee, have consumed three days, Wednesday, Thursday and Fri day, in conducting the defense. Young Long was their chief witness and he was on the st:iud a whole day. The pith of his evideuce was that the de fendant was a tort of agent of his (Young Long's). This morning Judge Helekunihi di elded that the evidence against Young Hee was not sufficient to warrant a committal.- There are seven more counts entered and the Government will bring up the second one next Wednesday, the 20th in9t. Young Long will then act the role of defendant both he and Young Hee. Hamakuapoko and Paia Mills start ed to grinding again last week. During Wednesday and Thursday the largest cattle drive in the annals of Maui took place on the sandy pl-tlns extending to Maalaea Bay. The Haleakala Ranch Company was holding au annual drive, and vaqueros and stock-owners from Kula, Maka wao, Wailuku and Waikapu came to assist and rescue any estrays. One hundred and twenty men by actual count took part In the rouna up ana scoured the country from Spreckels viJle to Maala-af Tweut.cigni nnnj dred cattle were gathered iu during Wednesday, and the number was In creased to 4000 by Thursday night.

Scott, Manager of the Hilo Sugar Company gives the following wonderful record of tho working of the NATIONAL CANE SHRED DER, which was erected by their works at the commence ment of the crop just har vested: "During the past week the Hilo Sugar Company's mill ex ceeded any of its former records by closing the 125 hours grinding with an output of300Jtons. This is fully 10 per cent, more than the best work of former years. "The three roller mill being 26 in. by 54 in. and the two roller mill 30 in. by 60 in. The first mill doing this amount of work in an efficient manner and with great ease, compared with work on whole cane, owing to thorough preparation of the cane by the National Cane Shredder, recently erec ted by the . Company. And by its use the extrac tion has been increased from 3 per cent, to 5 per cent, on all kinds of cane, and in some cases 80 per cent, has been reached; the average being 75 to 78 per cent., according to quality. "I continue to find the megass from shredded cane better fuel than from whole cane. "The shredder has been working day and night for seven months and has given me entire satisfaction, having shredded during that time about seventy thousand tons of cane, and a large part of it being hard ratoons. "The shredder and engine require very little care or attention." tSPlans and specifications of these shredders may be seen at the office of Wffl. G. Irwin I Co.
