Former soldiers on Oahu take kind
ly to the plan of organizing a force
of United States reserves here, and
the circulars recently sent out as a
feeler by the adjutant general have
met with ready responses in most
casts. Of some e.Vty men who have
answered to date, only two have come
out with flat-footed statements that
they would never join any military or
ganization again. Nearly all the men
heard from are willing to join a U.
S. reserve, and about half of tuem ex

white companies of the national guard
that may- be organized.

"A chromoRen isolated from the

yam has been named rhodochlorogen.'
It has possible chemical and physiolo
gical relationships with the ammonia-greening
anthocyanin of that
plant in that it forms green salts and
oxidizes to a red compound which
would itself pass from an anthocyanin
if i; were not insoluble in water,
Many investigators have supposed
that the anthocyanins were closely al
lied to the tannins. In this connec-
t;on it is especially interesting that
during the process of purification rho
dochlorogen was separated from tan
nin by the use of lead acetate and fer
rous sulphate. Lead acetate did not
precipitate rhodochlorogen, but did
precipitate its red oxidation deriva
tive. "There is reason to believe that rho

MEASURE FOR LEGISLATURE
A. L. Castle has been having legis
lation troubles lately, though unhappi
ly he was one of the many Republi
cans who were defeated in the deluge
of Democratic votes last fall that
overwhelmed candidates for the bouse I
of representatives. Mr. Castle's,
troubles have arisen over the "suf
fragette bill" as the cynical have!
The republican party having form
ally' Indorsed woman's suffrage, It be
came the duty of Republican states
men to draw up some kind of a meas
ure getting the sentiment of the party
in action. Mr. Castle was picked a
a statesman highly qualified to handle
this difficult and dangerous subject
and to do it justice. Consequently Re
has been laboring earnestly to put th,?
measure into shape
Castle's researches have ;
brought him to the conclusion that the
proper form of measure is a con
current resolution to be acted upon by
each house of the territorial legisla-
ture and then entrusted to Delegate
Kuhio and the United States con-
gress, the resolution asking that con-
gress amend th organic act to pro-
