Senator So Busy Defending

WASHINGTON, XX. C, July 19.
The elimination of William Lorimer
from the senate has proven a tem
porary disadvantage to Hawaii, but in
the end will be vastly beneficial. He
was chairman of the Committee . on
Pacific Islands and Porto Rico, which
handles, all matters pertaining to Ha
waii. The trouble was that Mr. Lori

in Chicago, or was busy defending
himself when In this city. It became
almost impossible to secure a quor
um of the committee and all bills in
which the Territory wj interested
became mildewed in pionholes.
As illustrative of this point, the bill
passed by the House, granting a

W. M. Giffard, director of the fruit
fly v campaign, is pleased to report to
the commissioners of agriculture and
forestry "that during the past two
months there has been a gradual' but
marked improvement' in the, condition
of infestation throughout the area of
Honolulu. covered by existing regula
tions. - The same may be said, . in a
measure, of portions of outside,-but
adjacent territory. In the latter" in
stance the apparently improved con'
dition may to some extent' be dud to
the few wild ' guava at present in
fruit, although the mountain' apples
in the valleys, which', are 'now' in. sea
son, show very ? little, if any, inf esta
tion-at- all; The Improvement in Ho
nolulu' gardens is undoubtedly due-id
part to a better and more general co
operation on- the part of householders;
who are now taking more : interest in
the work' of the campaign and: partic
ularly i in the . proper f disposition of
theirs fallen fruit V.
Daily Clean Up Needed.
"Very much better results would
be obtained if the whole community
combined in an every-day 'clean up'
and thecity and county; government
uuuiu, in) prevtuiea upon io aaopi me
daily free garbage system throughout
thecity and suburbs, which 1 have
'strenuously advocated: since the be
ginning - of ' .the campaign. Credit
however, should be iven ;the county
supervisors for having cooperated W
our campaign work to the extent that
the Incinerator was again placed in
commission at -the service of the Dub
lie after having been closed, down durt
ing a Jong period. Had it not been
for the ; effective 'destruction of the
large quantities 'of . fruits taken to the
incinerator by the garbage depart
ment, and ; the additional , service ? of
special outside transportation arrang-i
ed for by the board of -agriculture
the outcome of the campaign at this"
time-would have been obviously dif4
Xetent . As It is, there is, as already!
stated, room for much .improvement-
in the garbage transportation system
wy h, however,; can. hardly by reme
dlea- until this is made free to all." -
Spraying Fruit Trees.
Mr. Giffard' states; that since his
previous report a special corps of In-i
spectoro under the immediate supert
vision of Mr. Weinland has continued
spraying with; Mally's arsenate of lead
solution areas of fruit trees in local
gardens He' mentions the day of ap
propriation bills in Washington, sayi
ing it was- expected - they would- have
favorable attention before adjourn
ment of Congress - this month; . and
adds: "In the meantime the depar
ture from Washington of the repre1
sentative (Dr. Back); of the U. S. Bal
reau of Entomology has been indent
nitely postponed. Advices received
by me from the chief of the bureau
state that Dr. Back will leave just as
soon as Congress finally passes , the
appropriation bills referred to."
Mention is made of manv com
plaints regarding a peculiar condition
affecting a very large percentage of
mango fruits ' this season. In' the
earlier parts of the season It was sup
posed that a decay of the fruit on
the trees .was caused by the fly. Ex
periments in the laboratory, however;
bhowed that the fly had nothing to do
with it, nor was the particular form
of rottenness caused by a fungus dis
ease as originally suspected. In every
case "it has been found that the seed
was attacked by the mango weevil.
This diagnosis has been corroborated
by the U. S. experiment station."
Insular conditions of infestation re
main the same, Hilo, Puna and Kau
being the only districts in which the
fruit fly has not been observed. In
spections on the other islands Mr. Gif
fard regrets are not what they should
be, but there are reasonable excuses,
among the principal ones being a lack
of funds and the absence of law mak
ing is legally possible to search the
passenger and his baggage when em
barking on or disembarking from in-
terisland steamers without a search
"Even at this moment," Mr. Giffard
says, "the district of Hilo has prac
tically thrown up its hands and the
inspection work at its main port is
not now being carried out as effi
ciently as it should be because of the
alleged impossibility of controlling
the thoroughfares leading into that
means of either the Kohala belt road
or through one of the Hamakua ports.
It is, therefore, quite naturah to sup
pose that in ;a very Bhort time; the
Trult fly"' will ' be found ? throughout
Hilo and it will then only be a mat
ter of a few months before' It passes
through Puna- into- the Kau districts
: Mr. -Giffard argues that' the .only
thoroughly "effective Inspection would
be one' conducted' by Federal officers
under U. S.-laws. "For; reasons pre
viously explained," he says' later, "it
has i become - necessary to modify, the
existing- regulations of quarantine on
certain- fruits and vegetables which
it may be necessary to transport from
one Infested island or district' to an
other." The Governor has been , re
quested to amend. the. three' regula
tions on the subject, rand the matter j
is' now delayed owing to Ihe desire
of the administration to embody the
three into one. - ?

"As far as the meaning of the
phrase Dementia' Americana goes,; it
is all right," declared, the preacher,
"meaning the' chivalry or the Ameri

this instance1 it ? was all wrong.-, ,
"Dementia 'Americana, "in the in-"

mous San Francisco' attorney, meant
lack of parental training, contempt of
school discipline, .and, violation' of all
moral and physical laws. It was used
to excuse the crime of a degenerate,

SHOW PROSPEROUS YEAR
That the last year has been a pros
perous one for the citizens of Oahu
generally is indicated by the figures
now being compiled in the tax asses
sor's office preliminary to sending out
notices to tax delinquents. While
definite figures are not available, As
sessor Wilder says he believes there
will be fewer delinquents than last
year, which was an exceptional per
iod in the small number of delin
quents. Generally the delinquents are the
small property holders, the laborers
and builders of small homes. An In
creasingly large number of small cot
tages has been constructed in the
last twelve months on this island, yet
the" number of those who have failed
to pay up within the prescribed time
is less than before.
Notices to delinquents will be sent
out withni the next few days, and
those failing to pay Heed wmill later
lie summoned into court as defend
ants in tax suits.

N0RGAARD TELLS OF
Veterinarian Norgaard, in his re
lorts for June and July, has consid
erable to say on the dog quarantine.
In June there arrived ten dogs, twoj
beine transients belonging to theatri
cal shows. Twenty-two dogs were' in
quarantine, practically filling Up the
station. Another man was needed to
help the animal quarantine station
keeper, as besides the canines there
were more than a hundred large ani
mals there. The dogs quarantined at
Schofield Darracks had been visited
regularly once a week and all ap
peared to be doing well. Under the
subhead of rabies. Dr. Norgaard says
in his July report:
"A totai of 191 ownerless and stray
dogs have been caught and destroyed
in the gas chamber in the jail yard.
"From reports received from the
health authorities of California and
Oregon, it appears that rabies is'
spreading steadily and the Board's ac
tion in enforcing a strict quarantine
against all dogs coming from or
through infected countries would
.iherofer seem fully justified."
