From the House of Choekhoo, Kawai iiae, Hawaii, June 30. Since I have een it, the wonder has grown upon me that more has not been made of the Kona country. What California is to the mainland, it seems to me that the Kona coast should be to these Islands It is a land of unsurpassed fertility, of rainfall enough to insure crops, of the most delightful climate in the world All nature smiles there, and anything Ahat grows under the sun will thrive, let i.ona has done little or man lias done little with Kona and one of the few sugar plantations that has bailed has been that of Kona. Why? .Ask the sugar men who have taken the plantation in hand, and who are pre paring now to build a railroad to go with it. They say that they will make a success of it and I'll warrant you that they will. Indeed, the whole de velopment of Kona is now more prom ising than at any time in its history, because it will be development along modern lines. Kona is going to take .advantage of the experience of other sections, profiting by their successes and by their failures, too. A LAND OF RICHNESS. But it is not in sugar alone that IKona will thrive. The Bruner pineap ple cannery, at Napoopoo, has begun -work for the season, and the crop pros pects are most promising. "I have sold the product of the can nery three times," said Mr. Bruner, when asked about his prosperity. s 0 0 0 0 0 4 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 hT"" 'r 1 t -V v1 yw' : t f b'AV ' - zyKytyi I: ' M'KENNA, "THE CABLE-HUT MAN," AT LEFT OF PICTURE, WHO WILL PASS THROUGH HONO LULU SHORTLY.

Mr. McKenna was in charge of the cable office at San IfTancisco at the I time of the earthquake. He sent out been ' a few .brief messages to Honolulu from the Market street office, until flames encroached upon the building and the was endeavoring to get communication with Honolulu from the cable-hut near the Cliff House.

Of course our party visited Captain book's monument, at Kealakekua Bay, and then it was to horse again for the long ride around through Kona to the homestead of Eben Low at Puuanahula. That was one of the most notable of all rides that we took on the Island of Hawaii. It was a gallop, for the most part, with freshened horses over the smooth road along the heights of Kona, overlooking the sea, and alter we had passed the Maguire place, and the sun was beginning to decline, we came out upon the old lava flow of 1801.

Also, but on the next day, we crossed he lava flow of ,1859, by a macadamized xoad, and that is an entirely different thing from crossing it by a trail that seems to lead out into the unknown.
