IS A BENEFICIAL COPARTNERSHIP Public Has Protection An Inspec tor Is Wanted Interesting De tails of the Business. The Dairymen's Association of this city is a concern upon the basis of many quite new, but entirely success ful enterprises of similar nature in the United States and other countries. It is a copartnership rather than a co operative plan. There is neither sen timent nor theory about the affair. It is the application of practical business methods and it may be said fairly and honestly that in banding themselves together the producers of milk for the public market benefit, largely and very decidedljr, the consumers. So long as individuals have operated here in fur nishing milk supply complaint cast as persion upon but one house or firm or persons or company, under the new arrangement the Association as a busi ness concern and all of its members and financial' supporters are touched -when one of the customers presents a griev ance, it Is therefore extremely desir able on the port of the Assocation that patrons should be satisfied. To this end the closest check is kept upon the supply from every source. The plan of action of the Association and the benefits the members derive may be explained jn a very few words. The milk from the establishments of those in the company is brought to and dis tributed from one common center. There are now eight dairies in the Association. These under the separate managements used ten delivery outfits in the service of routes. Four wagons are used now. The expenses are. reduced in a number of directions. The own ers of the cows deliver the milk to the Association manager and receive a stipulated price for the same. The profits of the Association, if money is made, are divided amongst the milk furnishers, who guard their interests as producers by holding stock in the Association. This is a nutshell state ment of the scheme of the concern that was first started in the Lincoln block on King street, but now in Love Build ing on Fort. A. E. Weirick, who was for several years manager of the Vvoodlawn Dairy in Punahou, is the superinten dent for the Dairyman's Association and is a capable and alert director of the various matters entrusted to his care in the responsible position he oc cupies. Mr. Weirick said yesterday that as the representative of the Asso ciation he was pleased to receive in terested callers at any time and show them over the establishment. There is much more to the plant, both in system and operation, than one would suppose and there are abroad some impressions or opinions about the place that are entirely erroneous. It is gen erally thought, in the first place, that all the milk received is thrown to gether and that a mixture from the various dairies in the Association goes out to the customers. The fact is that the greatest care is taken to see that the product from any dairy can be traced in order to lay blame properly or to investigate impartially when there is lodged any sort of criticism. If a customer on any route in any part of the city or in the suburbs makes the statement that the milk soured too soon or that it appeared to be weak or impure, it is known at once from just what dairy of the Associa tion this particular milk came. Then the inquest is held. For the protec tion of the public and in the interest of the business methods adopted by the Association, samples of milk are tak en from the deliveries so soon as the lots are brought from the dairies. It can thus be learned at once if the trou ble is with the milk as it came from the dairy or if the fluid has been tamp ered with elsewhere. Endless dispute is avoided by this method. The sam ples are tested in the course of the ordinary conduct of the headquarters and if there is fault discerned the pro ducer is notified at once. Since the Association started the dairymen members have been advan taged by having the use of knowledge gained by the expriences and readings of all connected with the enterprise. On account of, or as a natural result of this comparison of notes, there has been much improvements in the meth ods of several of the dairies. The workmen have been taught how to wash the cans. Hints have been given en feeding and on the care of stock and milk in a score of directions. There his been noted at the Association plant and with the buyers a marked improvement in the quality of the railk. There is a fixed determination t keep up and improve the standard. The Association is keen for a milk inspector. There are numerous rea sons .why the combination urges the authorities to provide such an official. ThTe, is forever hanging over the re putation of the Association and threat ening its standing and efficiency the digger of dishonest and unscrupulous practice by some individual or group of men. Any of the members will say this. It is perhaps best to omit publi cation of the details, but the Associa tion members want for an inspector a fe;riess and honest man with full auth ority and with instructions to stop wagons and inspect milk with all the persistency and shrewdness that a skilled detective would bring to the hunt for a criminal. iMilk'is brought to the establishment cf the Association from the dairies twice a day. There is quite a lot of woik in making the tests, making the transfers to the cans of the Association and loading up the wagons. There is used every endeavor to keep the most careful check on every pint of milk brought to the place. The plan, adopt ed is something like the scheme of the railways in handling their cars. In the basement at the Association plaN? there is a separator driven by an electric motor. This apparatus is a centrifugal tool. There is a steel tube into which holes have been bored. This tube makes 7,000 revolutions to the minute and the cream drops in a tiny stream from one outlet as the "skiimmed"milk rushes in a little white torrent from another. After a look at the impoverished milk as it comes from the separator, one can readily accept the statement that it would be difficult to palm "skimmed" milk on a. customer who was able to distinguish any two of the cardinal colors one from the other. The milk from the separa tor goes back to the dairies as food for calves and pigs. There ia a sharp de mand for cream that often cannot be met. When there is a surplus of cream, butter is made right on the premises and has ready sale. T - ErCtrythmg about the Association place is neat and clean. It is a model establishment in every way. It is be lieved that the partnership will hold together indefinitely. One of the mem bers is to leave in a few days. The Association agrees that his contract shall terminate. Others are applying for membership. There is but one con cern of any size on the Island a;; thisi time that is not associated with the partnership. M According to Mr. Weirick, there is not a great deal of money in the milk business in this country. The very best cows imported fail to keep up anything like their records here. Some of the local authorities assert that a blooded cow wilL not give half so much milk in the Islands as in the States. Of course the cost of feeding and oare is greater. Just now the feed is poor in all the pastures. This is on account of the heavy rains. One of the pioneer dairymen in speaking of the Association yesterday, said he was with it to remain because it was run on strictly business prin ciples. "Our losses under the old sys tem," said he, "were incredibly heavy. Dishonest people would run up ac counts and then shift to another dairy. Now they must pay or they have pili- kia without end." On Appropriations. During the session of the Cabinet yesterday, various sections of the bud get were under consideraition. Outside the salary act, the appropriations come under three heads. Money will be used from current receipts, from the loan fund and now there is to be a supple mental or contingency appropriation list. This provision last mentioned, is to be for work that is perhaps not so pressing as improvements provided for in other measures, but that will be un dertaken if funds are available. Investigating. A meeting of the special committee to whom was referred the matter or roads in the district of Kona particu larly, was held in tha private dining room of the hotel last night. There was present a man who knows a great deal about the transactions that have been going on in the matter of roads on Hawaii since the last session of the Legislature and a great deal of valua ble information was gained. A special stenographer was present to take down what was said. The committee is do ing very hard work. Standard Patterns. L. B. Kerr has been appointed agent for the Islands for the Standard paper patterns, known the world over, and the Designer, a publication for ladies. Mr. Kerr is ready to supply orders for either. NDMENT LOST Votes It to Increase Its Owa MemuersMp. SPEAKER CAST DECIDING VOTE Senate Postpones Action On Re gistry ipill to Await An Amendment. SENATE. Thirty-first Day, March 28. Communications were received from the Hcuse announcing the passage of and transmitting House bills relating to the release of dower, in relation to bicycles and encouraging the culti vation: of grapes. The House Com mittee on Passed Bills stated' that they were dissatisfied with the report relating to bills rejected by the Senate. The matter had been referred to a special committee. Senator Rice presented a petition from 59 of his constituents from the Kawaihau district of Kauai asking for appropriations of $29,600 for various road and bridge improvements. The petition was referred to the Committee on Public Lands. The Senate "Act. to extend the time for the construction of the Oahu Rail road! passed1 third reading and was sent to the Committee on Passed Bills. On motion of Senator Waterhouse, the third reading of the registry of vessels bill was deferred to Thursday. The Senator said in making his mo tion th?.t he had an important amend ment to make. He believed it was time for Hawai to consider her own in terests, that is the reciprocity treaty. He said1 his amendment would cover some points not before mentioned. Minister Cooper, under suspension of the rules, introduced the loan act, amounting to $731,500, and the sundry improvement bill,-amounting to $2f3,- 800. Both bills passed first reading and were sent to the Printing Com mittee. The Senate bill relating to the elec tion of Senators passed third reading without discussion and went to the Committee on Passed Bills. The substitute bill brought in by thg Judiciary Committee to exempt only the Sailors' Home Society from tax ation and omitting the, Y. M. C. A. called from Senator MoCandless an earnest protest. He said that if it was a church it was exempt as the Consti tution made provision for them, if it was a ischool it would be consistent with the tax act of 1896 to exempt it. Senator Baldwin stated his position in opposing the bill. It was not that j he objected to the Y. M. C. A. Quite the contrary. Its work he fully appre ciated, as did everyone else in the community. He subscribed to ' its funds, but he believed it should not be exempted from taxation, nor should any other sectarian institution. The churches were exempted by the laws already. He believed that such exempt ions encouraged the sending to the Legislature of men pledged to secure legislation favoring some religious body. The total disunion of church and state was to be desired. The ex perience of other nations had proved this. He classed an exemption some what in the nature of a grant. Senator Brown opposed the bill. To his mind there were strong arguments in favor of refusing to exempt even church property and all other that re ceived its protection from the Govern ment. They should be made to pay their proportionate share to support and maintain the finances of the Gov ernment. The amended bill was then rejected and the original passed second read ing. Senator Holstein moved the indefin ite postponed of the bill to provide a park in Aala. He said that the land which it was proposed converting into a park was valued at from $60,000 to $75,000. For the Government to make such a disposition of valuable property he considered a piece of extravagance and the countrj' districts ought not to be called upon to pay for such insti tutions at that rate which would bene fit the city of Honolulu alone. Minister Cooper supported the Ha waii Senator. He said the Executive Council had discussed the matter thoroughly and, while they favored a park for that section of the city, were now opposed to giving up such a valu able site, a site which might bring large revenues into the Government. The President, he said, also op- Alt posed the giving up this tract of land. The Council did favor converting a piece of land, mauka of the proposed site, into a park amL would entertaii such a proposltioa.tr-" Senator Brown Supported the motley i on the consideration of. the value. 61 the property. v'f j.V-""-1' Senators Waterhousa.aua McCand less spoke strongly ia favor of the bill. They made a, plea, for the health of the residents of ;th' districts. Senator McCandless mentioned the fact that It cost the Palama 'people 15 cents to reach Kapiolani parkl and as much to ' return, a sum uttetlyheyond the means of the residents "to make; frequent ex cursions in search of; fresh air. Senator BadT?in salcl he was jiot opposed to the "park; Ho believed in having breathing spaces for all classes of people. At the same, tlines the value of the land was certainly ?woTthy of corisf deration. '';l;jv PC:. The motion of Senator Hockingto refer the bill back to the Public Lands Committee for consideration,. with in structions to consult with theExecu- tive was entertained favorably, and the bill was so referred. .., Under suspension of the rules, an- . swers to Senator Schmidt's questions were presented by the Printing Com mittee. . - The bill to exempt coffee and ramie trees and plants andl&achinery. tfor manufacture passed second reading.
