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.
