. ' NOTICE. !
They might have noticed, Dr. Lyon
i;aid in opening, the dead patches in
the Tanlalus forest. "These tree
are. dead from the recent drought,"
they might have said on first sight.
But there was no drought in Iwanoa,
where irrigated trees on the Ixng es
tate : were also dying. Besides tbo
eucalyptus, the black wattle: and ce
dar trees on Tantalus were dying. As
to the black wattle, old ase might ac
count for ifl " Cockroaches attacking
the bark and twigs of -some of the
trees had killed them. A great many
yoang trees at the experiment sta
l ion had died from 1 his cause.
-The eucalyptus trees on Tantalus
were not dying from cither of these
caures, but front a fungus and mor
of the eucalyptus globulus, tnan the
eucalyptus robusta were being at
tacked. As the robusta, or swamp
gum, favors moist land this fact indi
cates that another cause than drought
is the cause. T)ie disease usually be
gins at the extremities sometimes
isolated brances, and . sometimes one
side of a tree will be infected and
not the other. Dr. Lyon showed a
withered branch from a Manoa tree.
If the disease starts at the top it
will work its way down until it enters
the trunk. - '
"Folly. To Co On Planting."
Dr. Lyon could not say it would be
felly to go on planting eucalyptus
trees-. . If they were going to plant I
lhat it had leen found on Maui, but
investigation had not been jnade on
?ny of the other islands. He hoped it
would not prove so destructive as the
chestnut tree disease on the mainland,
for which neither federal nor state
authorities had been able to find a
remedy. It looked as if the chestnut
groves were doomed.

speaker said the disease was not the
BJme as the dying back disease- of
rubber and cacao trees, a disease that
was causing a great deal of damage in
the West Indies. - ,
"What is the remedy?" asked W. O.
Dr; Lyon sild the only remedy -was
to clean out the dead trees as fast as
possible. If they wished to save a
ftw trees they might do it by pruning
bck the branches and painting over
the wound. In a large foreit Such
treatment was impracticable.
In reply to a question by Mr. Smith
if the disease spread from centers of
irfection,iDr. Lyon said the infection
was rather scattered. One tree may
be attacked at the top, another at the
lettom. It the vital pa&s were first
affected the tree 'would die quickly.
- Mr. Bishop asked If the disease had
appeared on the other islands also, if it
was, anything like the cnesjnut tree

ernment officials here is to tho effect
that there has been and still is a
great deal of opposition to the re
appointment of Governor Frear in
Washington. This opposition, Tt is
reported, is headed by . such men, as
Senator Dixon and Senator Warren,
backed up by a number of Demotfrata.
The fight on the Governor I3 not a
personal one at all, say these men,
but is. based largely on the, political
aspects of 'the case. The Democrats
hold that it would be a mistake to
confirm the appointment of an official
for a term of four years, most of
which would have to be served, under
a Democratic administration, and
they contend that it. is only fair to
the incoming President to let him
make his own appointments.
.This, added to what is reported to
be strenuous objections to the re
appointment of Mr. Frear from cer
tain quarters in this Territory, it is
believed will exercise a deterrent ef
fect upon the" senate in considering
the nomination, and may result in
the holding up of the Governor's
name in committee during the entire i
shprt session, say the political wise
ones here. There . are others, how
ever, who feel certain the appoint
ment will be confirmed.

LOCAL AND GENERAL
basis of requests for appropriations
from the coming legislature, is given
below in full:
Your committee appointed to re
port on the programme of work for
the development of wharf facilities
in Honolulu, Kahului and Ililo har
bors beg to recommend that the first
work in Honolulu harbor to press to
completion is the Fort Street Bulk
Head' 'Wharf; this project involves
after the dredging contract is com
pleted, the construction of a wharf in
the slip adjoining the Alakea Street
Wharf, the construction of a whirf at
the foot of Fort Street, the extension
seventy-fire 'feet makai of .the
Oceanic Wharf, and the extension
niauka of the Oceanic Wharf -to
Queen street. ' ?
We recommend that this con
struction be of concrete and of the
most permanent character possible;
freight sheds for the accommodation
9 incoming and out-going cargoes
must be provided, and we would urge
that a comprehensive shed plan be
arranged for the whole land area in
volved 4n this scheme of the Fort
Street Bulk Head Wharf.-
To complete this work it will - be
necessary, to ' secure property from
the Federal Government, and the
Robinson and S. C. Allen Estates, and
we would urge that the necessary
legal, steps be. taken to . secure the
condemnation of these, two lant men
tioned properties. ; - t ; w
We. further recommend that on the
acquisition or the Fee of the Marine
Railroad property, a slip be dredged
through the .center, constructing tolid
open wharves on each side of the
rl:p, which will afford accommodation
tor the discharge of lumber and coal
cargoes. "1 .
. We also urge the necessity of re
constructing the "Kinau , wharf and
vharf hed, the extensions the Brew
e -wharf shed - to ihe. sea-walL the
dredging of the slip WaikikI of the
Brewer wharf t the sea-wall line, and
the dradging of the Inter-It land slips
to the sea-wall. ' l
We would also nrg urge the need of
securing a large appropriation from
the Legislature for 4the rtpair and
maintenance of ivharves In Honolulu
Harbor. With the increasing volume
of traffic over the wharves In this Har
bor It is an absolute necessity to main
tain these structures In the best pos
sible condition to preserve their work
We would recommend thit a speciat
appropriation be requested from the
Legislature to construct the necessary
freight .sheds on the Ililo wharf, so
that this important work can be press
ed to completion with ua little delay
hs possible. .
Kahlur Harbor is badly in need of a
wharf for the accommodation of large
steamships' and we would urge that
plans be prepared for a hulk-head
wharf tp be built parallel with the
breakwater sufficiently long - to berth
two ocean going steamers and with
sufficient ' thed accommodation for
their incoming and but-going cargoes.

Cathcart Enters Denial iri
Court to 'Public Be Damned' -Story
; .With more than a scorn of promiii
ent men ami women of Honolulu at
tending the proceedings, Edwajd Mc
Corrlston, a well-known young man
of this city, pleaded guilty : in Judge
tloblnson's court this morning to a
charge of fornication and was given
the limit sentence, a fine of fifty dol
lars and costs.,? - '.'.:
The other charge against McCorris
ton, that of trespas, was 'dropped, the
prosecuting attorney, John W. Cath
cart, declaring- that under tho circum
stances surrounding the case no jury
in the world would find the prisoner
guilty of trespass. : Evidence In ' the
case previously taken ' had brotht
out statements that the Hawaiian
girl with whom McCorrlston Was
guilty of misconduct had communi
cated with him prior to his coming
to the home where she was staying
while out on probation from: the re
form school. . .
The case this morning was marked
not only by thev attendance of prom
inent people and the deep interest
taken in the case,' but by sharp ex
changes of personalities between At
torney Cathcart and Attorney Wade
Warren Thayer. An article in tho
morning paper, stating that Cathcart
yesterday had declared, "The public
be damned!" in discussing the agree
ment for McCorriston to plead guljty,
was asserted by Cathcart to have
been inspired by Thayer. The article
in question said that Thayer had
asked Cathcart whv he. the prosecut
