L. T. 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.

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."

Anyone can put a lot of pipes together and run them off
