Eleven Hundred Acres to bo Plant ed This Season Many Contracts for Clearing- Made. Will Leave on the Australia to Hurry Up MattersTestimonial from Hilo People. it is nard to conceive of the changes made during the past month in the lower sections of the Olaa Sn gar Company's lands, says the Hawaii Herald. The several thousand acres of lauKx incu iias in me past oeen en tireiy given over to the growth of ferns and tropical growth of similar nature is rapidly being cleared and the entire section is quickly approaching a well-tilled garden in appearance. beverai Hundred Japanese coolies are busily engaged in the work nf clearing the ground and getting it in a condition ready for the plow, while the planting of the seed cane is being forwarded just as fast as the ground is prepared. A tract of 1,100 acres is now already-cleared fit for plowing and a considerable part of this is at pres ent both cleared and planted. As the J , 1 ,1 Si. i -. iciuu is tieaieu il is proving 10 oe a much more fertile and ,productive country than the most sanguine of the hopeful ones had looked for, and the . 1 a cr eruici 01 experienced cane men is that they have never seen land better adapted for the growth of cane than is the land now being planted by the company.

Grant of Hilo was one of the Claudine's passengers yesterday morn ing. Mr. Grant has severed his con neetion with the Hilo Electric Com pany, whose plant he installed and for which ever since its inception he has acted as manager. He resigned in or der to accept the position of manager for the Honolulu Automobile Com pany, which intends to conduct a horseless carriage service in this city. That Mr. Grant's services were ap preciated by the Hilo Electric Com pany was shown by the token of es teem presented to him prior to his de parture by the stockholders and pub lic generally. The gift was a hand some gold watch, accompanied by the following letter: "Dear Sir: Before severing our con nection with each other the officers of this company desire to express their high appreciation of the services ren dered by yourself during the past four years in the laying out of the original plans, the selection of the machinery, both ice and electrical, and the erec tion and management of the plant in all its departments. That thn soiol.. non 01 macninery was good and the was but a stone quarry of a-a and pa- erection workmanlike is shown by the company's hoehoe has been dispelled, and as far as the clearing has now progressed no a-a land has been encountered that can not be plowed. The first planting will be Jone with out fertilizing and by the time this crop has matured, experience will have demonstrated the most desirable sys tern for the future use of fertilizer. The work pursued so far has not been con lined to the lower section of the dis trict, but in the forest lands mauka the clearing and planting of cane for seed is being pushed in a most energetic way. Already over 300 acres of land in the forest have been cleared, plowed and planted, and the work of clearing 00 acres of virgin forest has com menced at eighteen and a half miles on the Volcano road. Several contracts for clearing large areas of this land are now being figured on and will pro bably be awarded in the near future, while sufficient contracts for the clear- ng of land ready for the plot now as sure the planting of at least 1,000 acres of the wood lands by the first day of March. It is expected that 500 acres of seed will be in the ground near nine miles by the end of September. The shortage of labor is being rapidly ov ercome and the recent arrival of about 200 contract coolies has now increased the field help to nearly five hundred hands. Arrangements have been made or a large number of Japanese to be shipped, and contracts for fifteen hun dred are now made, to be here by No vember 30. The work of investigating and hunting for water to be used for fluming is meeting with success and is progressing very satisfactorily. Streams and water heads with a capac- ty of fluming 4,000 tons of cane have been discovered and but little of the territory where Water is most expect ed to be found has. been thoroughly in vestigated. So far the streams discov ered have been near enough together so that the work of bringing them in one will be of but little labor or ex pense, and the manager of the com- pany expresses nimseir as ueing per fectly satisfied and confident as to hav ing an abundance of water for all plantation purposes and uses. Large stables and laborers quarters have been built at nine miles and the Puna road corner is becoming a village of no mean size, while all along the Vol cano road new buildings are being rapidly built for the accommodation of the different gangs of field laborers and plantation lunas. A building to be used for hospital purposes has been put up at seventeen miles and labor ers suffering from accident or illness will be taken care of by the regular plantation physician. The site for the mill has virtually been decided on and the Work of construction will be started in time to have it completed when the first cane for grinding is ma tured. The mill will be located makai of the Volcano road and probably well toward the Keaau beach. It is to be of the most modern type and in capac ity will be sufficient to grind ail the cane produced on the larger part of the entire plantation. The work so far has certainly been pushed in a most energetic way and to the kamaai na or malihini who has not been through the Olaa district for the past two months, changes will be seen which for the short lime work has been in progress seem well nigh incredible. Vineyard tre;t. EDITOR ADVERTISER: The con junction of River street, with that of Lower Vineyard street, while unques tionably a great convenience, has prov ed a not altogether unmixed blessing to the residents of the last named street. Apart from the very large traf fic of hacks and private conveyances which take this route to make a short cut, it is constantly being traversed by heavy drays, mostly Chinese, which will soon cut up the roadway so as to make it boggy in wet weather, unless the. Supervisor has it macadamized and rolled before long. The sidewalks are. also in a deplorable co'ndition. CHRONIC KICKER. general satisfaction of the customers. iine levelling me loss ot your services, we desire to congratulate you on hatving secured a position in a field where the pecuniary rewards will be greater and the opportunities of coming to the front much better than they would be in Hilo, and also to as sure you or our highest consideration for yourself as a man and our appre ciation of your abilities as an electri cian. May we ask that "you will ac cept the accompanying slight token of our esteem, as a slight remembrance of the very pleasant relations that have existed between us." Mr. Grant leaves by the Australia for the States in order to complete all final arrangements and hurry along the shipment of the automobiles. "We expect to be in full running or der and carrying people about the streets of Honolulu by the middle of January. Our first shipment of about twenty vehicles should be here in the early part of December. At about that time, also, the material for the con struction of the storage plant should arrive, lhe site tor the power-house has not yet been selected. Several points are under -consideration, and a choice will be made some time in the near future. Yes, I understand that Mr. Desky ha gone to the Coast and intends to have the honor of bringing the first automobile to Honolulu. m It is a diffi cult matter, however, to get the ma chines now, the demand being so much greater than the supply. Why, only the other day an order was placed in New York for 2,000 cabs. The fac tories are working night and day. New ones are being established by the recently formed gigantic trust, and yet the demand cannot be met. Our or ders were placed in good season and there is no doubt of our machines-arriving on time. "In the States -the automobiles are charging the same rate for public serv ice as the horse-vehicles. We shall not raise the rates now in vogue in this city. Japanese and Chinese drivers? I guess not; not while I am manager. The delicate mechanism of a high priced automobile is not to be entrust ed to an ignorant Celestial who does not know enough to fteep on the right side of the street. In New York the examinations for drivers are extreme ly rigid, and ours will not differ much." The Human Knot World's Contortionist.
