IV! by the Australia a fine as SHOP JllVi To the Editor of the Pacific Com mercial Advertiser Dear Sir: Hav ing recently discharged a cargo of lum ber for the American Sugar Company in the port of Kaunakakai, I would beg leave to say a few words about the place for the information of any who may be interested therein. Within the 3-fathom line the har bor is about oOO yards in length in the direction of north northeast and south southwest, and its narrowest place within the C-fathom curve is over 200 yards; at the entrance it is fully 300 yards. Sailing vessels from the eastward should come through the Pailolo channel between Maui and Mo lokai, following the edge of the out lying reef, which is an average dis tance of nearly a mile from the shore. The new wharf recently constructed will serve to indicate the position of the harbor. There is a fair-way buoy lying about T00 yards south southwest erly compass from the center of the entrance, and on the end of the reef on each side of the entrance is placed a buoy. The edge of the reef inside of the harbor is also well marked by buoys, two of which may be used for hauling v ssels in or out or for moor ings. These buoys have been placed by Mr. Center, the manager of the American Sugar Company's planta tion, and are a great convenience. But for still greater convenience to sailing vessels a buoy should be placed fur ther out than the present out mooring buoy, for vessels to hang on to get under way from. There should also be two buoys with light moorings on jthe western side ot the harbor tor ves sels to steady themselves hauling in or out of the harbor, and to prevent ! being drifted onto the eastern side of (the harbor by ithe constantly varying i winds of the early morning. And for the safety of large vessels there should be some strong stern mooring laid down, to prevent them from sheering all around the har bor in the case of being caught inside during a southwest gale. I A sailing vessel bound to this place should reduce sail before coming close to the harbor, as the trade winds blow here generally with the force of half a gale. The fair-way buoy can be passed on either side, but a sailing ves sel should preferably pass close to windward of it and between it and a buoy marking the end of the reef on the eastern side of the harbor. The vessel should be hauled up heading north northeast, passing the line of buoys on the eastern side of the harbor within twenty-five yards, and when the vessel is about 100 yards from the out er end of the new wharf, the port anchor should be dropped with a range of fifteen fathomsallowing the vessel to swing head to wind. Then run a strong line from the stern of the ves sel to the inner end of the wharf and haul the vessel alongside. But be fore hauling the vessel alongside, or i giving her more chain on the port an chor, it will be found that by hauling the vessel stern to the wharf and broadside to the wind her head will fall off into a favorable position for drop ping the should be starboard done. Then anchor, haul the which vessel Harness Trimmings; also Whips, Dusters, Brushes, etc. Special attention given to plantation orders at Rock Bottom Prices. 659 KING STREET, BELOW ARLINGTON HOTEL.

The vessel .will then have sixty fathoms on anchor, bearing south, and about fathoms on starboard anchor southwest. The wharf is imperiled, but it is my opinion that a vessel with good ground tackle would safely ride out a strong southwest gale in the harbor of Kaunakakai and there no other wind that would hurt a vessel if properly moored.

Inspector uf Immigrants Finds Fever on Some Plantations. Dr. Peterson speaks highly of the ar rangements made at Paauilo by Man ager Lydgate, and believes that if his original plan was adopted by the man agers throughout the country there would be less langer of sickness. On some of the sugar estates Dr. Peterson has found a goodly number of fever cases due to improper sanitary ar rangements. He has recommended changes which will have to be made. At Wainaku plantation the quantity and direction of the waste waiter flow is such that it is considered by him a healthy locality. Hawaii Herald. A MOTHER TELLS HOW SHE SAVED HER LITTLE DAUGH TER'S LIFE. I am the mother of eight children and have had a great dea or expen ence with medicines. Last summer my little daughter had the dysentery in its worst form. We thought she would die. I tried everything I could think of. but nothing seemed to do her any good. I saw by an advertise ment in our paper that Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and .Diarrhoea Remedy was highly recomm'ended and sent and got a bottle at once. It proved to be one of the very best medicines we ever had in the house. It saved my little daughter s life. I am anxious for every mother to know wnat an excel lent medicine it is. 'Had I known it at first it would have saved me a great deal of anxiety and my little daughter much suffering. Yours truly, MRS. GEO. F. BURDICK, Liberty, R. I. For sale by all dealers.

There is nineteen feet alongside at ilow tide, and the bottom is soft mud. (This wharf is continued towards the ! shore by a narrower one, which is 'about twenty feet wide for a distance jof about 150 feet and there is about sixteen feet alongside this part of the i wharf. This is very suitable for the ! Island steamers when a sailing vessel j I may be lying at the larger wharf. This ; wharf is still further continued towards 'the shore by a line of three-pile trestle- work, which is connected to the shore by a very substantial stone embank ment. This forms the roadbed of the American Sugar Company's plantation 'railroad, and when all the connections are inivde, it will be possible to do better work in discharging vessels than can be done under present condi tions in Honolulu. It is intended to (run the cars right alongside the ves Isels at the wharf. There are no pilots the place, doubting his ability to get his vessel into the harbor, should lay off and on, when the manager of the plantation may send his boatman out to assist the vessel into the harbor. My opinion about the safety of the har bor is that during the months from April to October inclusive it is as safe as the harbor of Honolulu; the months from November to March inclusive, when the trade winds are sometimes interrupted for two or three weeks at 'a time, are not so favorable for the ll'.'ll T ..ITIME HERE the Excruciatingly Fun- I I I V i " .; ' tt n .1 bearing ny J"" VU1UCU a substantial ,i!
