CERTAIIITY SINCE JULY 4, 1894 Internal Improvements The Railways-Coming of Coffee Sugar the Industry. TELEPHONE 92. To the Editor of Bradstreet's. Sir: The history of the business, as distinct from the political side, of the Hawaiian Islands for the past three or four years has been one of quiet, peace ful and orderly material progress, along lines having for their object the devel opment of the many natural advantages possessed by those islands, tempered, of course, by their necessarily isolated geographical position. While the situ ation in 1893 and early in 1894 was un favorably affected by the uncertainties growing out of the anomalous position held by the Islands, the course of events since July 4, 1S94, when the Re publican form of government was pro claimed, has given comfort to those who, confident of the richness of the Islands, have looked for safe conserva tive development of those riches along lines already marked out. The present government has carried on considerable internal improvements in the shape of road building, opening up new lands to settlers, building school houses, and In a number of oth er ways preparing for the enlargement and improvement of the opportunities so freely offered to residents of those "fortunate islands." Among the more immediate results of material progress have been the expansion of the sugar industry, due to the application- of scientific cultivating methods and im proved machinery. A large Increase in production is confidently anticipated in this particular industry. Coffee, a comparatively new product of the islands, though tried years ago with out success, owing chiefly to lack of knowledge of its culture, is now com ing rapidly to the front, and is expect ed to become the main product of the Islands after sugar. While the sugar culture is almost monopolized by the large corporations of the Islands, cof fee offers an inducement to the moder ately well-to-do, and a fair amount of capital invested in good coffee lands promises good returns in from six to seven years. Immigrants interested in this culture are sought after for the Islands, the possession of capital and some knowledge of coffee culture be ing desiderata. Owing to his remote ness from centers of supply, and the long-credit system in vogue, the whole saler in these Islands requires ab normal capital for the volume of busi ness done. Retail business is also con ducted on long-time credits, and is largely controlled by the Chinese. Bus iness morality is exceptionally high, comparatively few failures occur, and debts carried to profit and loss are gen erally small. . Sugar naturally cuts an important figure in the trade of the Islands. Of the total exports in 1897, valued at $16,021,775, sugar contributed $15,390, 442, rice, coffee, -hides, bananas, wool and pineapples coming next, in the ord er named, but at a considerable dis tance from the staple export, as may be gathered from the fact that the total value of the rice exports was only $225. 575. The principal imports in 1897 were groceries and provisions, the total value of which was $609,682; machin ery, $595,421, and hardware imple ments and tools, $405,567. Fertilizers, clothing, grain, cotton goods, lumber, flour and tobacco also constituted fair ly important imports, the aggregate of which is in the neighborhood of $5,710, 000. The past two cr three years have seen many improvements in Honolulu, the principal city of the Islands, a number of handsome buildings having been erected, and many are contemplated. Excellent building stone is found con venient to the city. Arrangements have been made for an electric system of street railways, the present horse- car lines being inadequate to the re quirements of the progressive popula tion of 30,000. A system of sewers for the city is also under contemplation. There are three public railroads on the Islands one on Maui, one on Hawaii and one on Oahu. The latter is the principal one, running from Honolulu along the coast around Pearl Harbor, the proposed location of the United States government coaling station and navy yard, to Kahuku, a distance of seventy miles. The recent extension from Waialua to Kahuku will open up an immense tract of new land, upon which one of the largest sugar planta tions is now being begun. The next largest city of the Islands Is Hilo, sit uated on the northeast coast of Hawaii. 3 K:AALAXSai e .1. 7 V O A H U 33 05 3 31920 1 2 oft.
