A Nev Fruit.
Professor Hugh M. Coke of the
Waihee School who is an enthusiastic
horticulturist, has introduced a new
food product on Maui, a delicious
fruit tree known as the Solanum
Batacea. This tree is a native of
India, but is extensively grown in
Ceylon and Brazil. For some years
past, Mr. Robinson, of Gay & Robiu
son, Kauai, has cultivated this fruit,
but Mr. Coke just introduced it on

The Citizens Must Act.
The News has persistently urged
tho nppoiutment of a Sanitary In
spector for Maui, and in furtherance
of this matter a largely signed pe
tition was forwarded to the Board
of Ileallh asking the appointment of
J. L. Benoit to the position, to which
petition the following reply way re
ceived: Feb. G, 10(12
J. L. Bonoit,
Your petition ot January 22nd, 1o
be appointed Sanitary Inspector for
the Island of Maui, had not been act
ed upon before as there has been no
meeting of the Board since it has
been received up to yesterday.
The matter came up for discussirm
at yesterday's Board meeting and
the Executive Officer was instructed
to write you the situation o! the
Board in the matter.
At the last session of the Legisla
ture the Board nsked the members of
that body for an appropriation for
two Inspectors for Maui and three
for Hawaii but we were unable to ob
tain the appropriation.
The only appropriation which could
be drawn from for an inspector for
Maui would bo the General Expense
Appropriation. This appropriation
is very small and has already, on
account of , circumstances, been
heavily drawn nn.
The Board (oels that it will be
impossible, to incur this additional
expense at the present time and
therefore have had to deny your pe
tition. Your application will be placed
on file and should it at any future
tirne be possible to make an appoint
ment your name will be considered.
Yours very truly,
J. S. B. PRATT
In addition to the office of Sanitary
Inspector, other officers are need
ed badly on Maui, namely a Hack
Inspector and a Humane Officer, for
both of whioh appropriations have
been made. Hoaolulu and Hiloeach
have these officers and it is equally
necessar'"' tnat Maui should have
them, espt a"y a comPetent Hack
Inspector, as the records of the
District Court Wailuku this week

sufficient to pay him, especially if he
were placed on the Maui police force
at a small salary. Dr. Pratt, 'the
executive Officer of the Board of
Health is expected on Maui next
week, and in the mean time the citi
zens of Wailuku should take the in
itiative by agreeing on a competent
man, and be prepared to make prop
er representations to Dr. Prattj
when he arrives.
There were fires in the cane fields
at Kaulu gulch, lust Saturday after-

An amusing feature of the pro
gram arranged for the West Maui
Teachers' Association which was held
last evening, (Feb. H) was a Passing
farty. Each one was requested to
1 bring some article which it would be
p satisfaction to get rid of, and yet
winch was almost too good to be
thrown away. The owner was requi
red to wrap up his package as dain
tily and alluringly as possible, and
He packages were not to be opened

ihig began, each one trading off his
Mrcel for some other package which
sl'tmed attractive, and trading his
i w t reasure for any other that seem-
etl more inviting. At the tan of a
