Mr. Haughs' Report
jSj The Advertiser clearly and fully dehnos its position as un
nltornblv onnosed to tho dominance of the carpet bacg-er and the
ignorant "aborigines. " Practically tho same light was fought out
in the South after the civil war, with tho same minority opposed
to the carpet baggers and in favor of white rule, bat down there
bulldozing and kuk'uxisin were invoked, which cannot be done
here. There was a palpable and rank injustice in putting the
ballot in the hands of the ignorant negroos of the South, but there
is a poetic justice in investing the Hawaiian with suffrage. The
News is still ready to support any movement which will tend to
unite the better elements of people without reference to race or
nartv. because sujh a move w.ll at least give- us a better legisla'
ture than our last one.
SSi No one is particularly surprised that the Schley investigation
is showing that Schley did his whole duty at Santiago, The
American people a; heart have never doubted that fact, and it has
all the time been transparently apparent that the investigation
was the result of narrow minded jealousy on the part of Admiral
Sampson and his friends. Schley is no saint, and is not perhaps
the ablest man in the navy, but ho did his duty, with results
which would have been the same, if Admiral Sampson, Capt. Bob.
Evans, Capt. Phillips, Capt. Sigsbee or any one of the half dozen
captains in the American fleet had happened to be in command,
and for that reason his complete exoneration would be eminently
satisfying to all fair minded Americans.
And so Governor Dole is to bo investigated. Well, let the
investigation begin at the time when the first active movement
for annexation began, and let it follow the steps of Chief Justice
Dole and President Dole, and the gallant little band of Ameri
cans at his back, through the parlous times which ended in giving
to the United States the Key of the Pacific. Then, if they be true
Americans who scan the glorious record, the chances are that their
eyes will so fill with tears that they will not bo able to see the
antics of Deputy Acting Assistant Governor Cooper, and the
weaknessses of Governor Katherine Bridget O'Kelly Dole.
The News ventured a safe guess some time since that the
steel strike and the teamster' strike would end in victories for the
employers. The teamsters'. strike has already so ended, and the
fact that the steel trust has declared a fifty million dollar divid
end for the past six months, during which the steel strike has
been in f nil blast, tells its own story. The disastrous results of
the recent strike in San Francisco tend to cause one to sym
pathize with the residents of Tampa, Florida, who threatened to
lynch striking Italian cigar makers of that city. (
a scarcely more man a century ago, ungiana was engagea m
the laudable task of "pacifying" colonies which afterwards be
came the United States. Today, both England and the United
States are engaged in a laudable task of "pacifying" people who
are fighting for tneir liberties, just as the thirteen colonies did, in
countries to which tney have no better right than England had to
the colonies, perhaps not so good. It is a matter of curious spec
ulation as to what future history will record concerning their
On Mnul Forests.
Tho following is the report sub
mitted to Wray Taylor, Commissioner
of Acriculturc by D. Haulis, Fores
ter concerning tho forests on Maui
recently inspected by Me. laughs:
Honolulu, T. H. Oct. 10, 1901.
Wray Trtylor, Commissioner of Agri
culture and Forestry.
Dear Sir: I herewith submit my
report of the condition of the forests
in the district of Makawao, Maui.
On September 0, along with Mr.
El. A. Baldwin Mr W. O. Aiken und
Mr. James Lindsay, we Inspected
the forest along the Haiku ditch, a
distance of about five miles. On both
sides of this ditch is Government
forest land. Tho trees on the tnauka
idc of the ditch, as far as could be
seen, are principally fcoa, oma ana
kukui. With the expection of a few
dead trees here and there, the
forest is in very good condition and,
in act, is a typical Hawaiian tores t.
the underbrush and tangle of vines
makes walking, should one wish to
leave the trail, a rather hard pro
position; in fact, it is hardly possible
to get far without hewing your way
The guardian of the ditch has strict
orders to guard againstj cattle get
ting across tho ditch from the lower
lands, and fences have been erected
where it might be possible for cattle
to go over. With his precaution, the
management of the Haiku plantation
has been able to preserve the natural
vegetation and this, in a great mca
sure, protected the water supply.
On the lower side of the ditch there
is a strip of forest adjoining the lands
of ihe Huelo Sugar Company. This
tract of forest is used by many people
for grazing their cattle; in fact,
may say that it is well stocked, and
cattle of many different brands are
to be found there. This may be very
convenient for people to graze their
cattle in this way, without paying
any rent, but I think it would be
more profitable to the communit at
large, and also to the Government
if this tract was fenced and made in
to the forest reserve. There' are
good many trees on the tract and if
fenced off and protected for a little
while I have no doubt that a numbe
of young ones might spring up.
think we ought to try to protect
as much as possible the remnants
left of tho natural forests, for the
time is surely coming when not only
fencing, but reforesting, which is
a great deal more expensive, will
The cable proposition of Mackay has struck a snag. The
first thing for the government to do is to call for a copy of the
charter w?hich Spain granted to the private cable company. If it
is absolute restrictive, and if tho company has complied with all
its provisions, there is but one thing for Mackay to do. and that is
to "see tho cable company, failing in which it is a safe bet
that a United States government cable from the Coast via Hono
lulu to the Philippines will materialize as soon as Congress can
arrange the details.
J Nothing except s very hollow and empty feeling of pride ar.d
vanity could follow, in a victory of either the Columbia or the
Shamrock. Both are freak boats, only fitted for racing and after
wards for the junk pile, and it is to be hoped that the present race

of usefulness beside that of being racers.
J "While the American Board of Missions is probably justified
iri refusing to ransom Miss Stone, even though death or worse
should result from such refusal, yet it must not for one moment
be supposed that the American people will tamely submit to any
indignity put upon Miss Stone, and if she suffers aught at the
hands of the brigands, there will be a whole lot of trouble before
the end is reached,
JjJS President Roosevelt says that he will appoint to federal offices
in the South, only prominent local men, though democrats. The
more one thinks about that proposition, the larger it and its
author become. A wiser or more politic move could not have been
devised to rub out the lines which bound the "solid south,"

be enough for the district. Such re
servation will, in time, I have no
dotbt, benefit these pasture lands
also. In planting such lands as may
bo reserved 1 thiuTt that new vario-
ies of trees ought to bo planted. I
ill mention a few of the kinds which
am sure will do well on this tract
and will also become very valuable
for their timber qualities.
Acacia Melanoxylon (Foreign Koa.)
Acacia Dccurrcns (Black Wattle.)
Casuuriua Ecjuistifolia (Irouwood.)
Grevillea Robusta (Australian Silk
Cupressus Macrocarpa (Monterey
Several of the most valuable species
of the eucalyptus and some ot tne
best of the cugenia family.
1 am sure the.e trees will do better
and grow faster than the native
ones and prove more valuable as
timber trees. After leaving the
forest belt we went along the Govern
ment road through the coi n fields.
The corn is looking very well, al
though in some parts it seemed to be
suffering from want of moisture. We
stayed and rested at Mrs. von Temp-
sky's beautiful home and were royal
ly iutertained by her.
I am indebted to the follwing gen
tlemen for information and courtesies
received at their hands, and would
take this opportunity of thanking
them: Mr. Harry Baldwin, Mr. -Aiken
and Mr. James Lindsay.
