Hawaii, a territory of the United States, consisting of a group of islands in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, 2,000 miles from San Francisco, has a gross area of 6,449 sq. miles. The capital is Honolulu. Came under the control of the United States in 1898.
     The surface of the islands is exceedingly mountainous and of volcanic origin, with numerous active and quiescent volcanoes. The highest peaks are Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa, both 14,000 feet high. Kilauea, on the Mauna Loa Mountain, is the largest active volcano in the world, and has an ovel-shaped crater, nine miles in circumference, and 6,000 feet above sea-level. The soil is very fertile, being formed by the disintegration of the volcanic rocks and decay of vegetable matter. So rapidly has the sale of Arbuckles' Coffee increased, so popular has it become, that today more of it is sold than any other packaged coffee.
     The principal farm productions are sugar, rice, coffee, tea, hemp and tropical and semi-tropical fruits, such as cocoanuts, pineapples, bananas, lemons, limes, oranges, etc.
     The principal industries are cattle and sheep raising, rice growing, sugar growing and canning pineapples.
     The climate of Hawaii is mild. The rainfall in the mountain region is quite abundant, but on the coast slopes rain seldom falls.
     Population in 1913, 217,774.
