For the convenience of its Hawaiian readers, the Nk.ws will

of Supervisors printed In Hawaiian. In doing this the NewS is
only taking- another step forward to meet the wishes of those who

'japan's ''The capture" of the island of Baghalien off the east
Foothold ern coast of Russia is an important one in that it
gives to the Japanese a foothold in Russian Territory, and a possi
ble base for supplies, as well as a significant bearing in the peace
negotiations. The' Washington Star remarks:
"Japan's occupation of the island of Saehalien anticipates' in
""" 'striking manner the demand which the' Mikado's ' envoys at the
i f peace conference are expected to make for the return of that is
..land, the Japanese sovereignty. Possession is a powerful factor
' 4 lu ttief shaping of peace terms. ' Thus there is tb-day no 'doubt
"whatever i& the mind of the 'world, that Japan' wilt emerge1 from
( he conference undisputed possessor of fort Arthur, chiefly be
cause that, point was captured by Japan after a terrific contest
' " Just so it is the average expectation that by the peace' terms Rus
afe wilt be excluded from practically all of Manchuria, because of
the fact that her armies have been driven out of the greater part
of that province. And it has been the belief of many that the Jap
anese armies would have ere now effected the isoUtion and perhaps
the capture of Vladivostok, so that Japan Could go into the peace
conference with the claim that Russia has been ousted from all the
Asiatic sea-ports and can not- be granted permanent sovereignty
over any sucu naval outlets in the final' adjustment

Mangostcena A Success.
UP COUNTRY NOTES.
Mr. Gen-it P. Wilder, who is one'of Ha
waii's enthuassita on tropical agriculture
Is paying one of his periodical visits to
Maui. N .
Last February Mr.' Wilder"' made a
special trip from Honolulu to Xahaina to
see what could be done towards develop
ing a mango'steen tree which isoiieof two
to survive transplanting.
Mr. Wilder took four slfps and grafted
them to a Kamana stump, ' and on thia
trip 6n examination found the new shots
doing admirably. Mr. Wilder is1 more
than satisfied that his experiment in
grafting to the' Kamana Is' a success and
will make the Warlgo4teeri a 'haVdier tree.
I The mahgostetnVasa favorite fmit with
Kalakdtta Rex arid after his return from
his trip around the world expressed a de
sire to have mangosteens in the islands.
Seeds were sent for and 'distributed-in
tlie Various 'district 6f thel group, but
btftytthe at Cabaina 'and' one - on Kauai
seemed 'to' thrive. The- Kauai tree has
perhaps made a better showing bearing
frtrit than the- Lahaina tree, ' as more
enre was taken in planting. 1 ;'.
Several attempts have been triads to
graft the1 'mangosteen with 'a Hardier
tree,'' but 'up to' the time 1 of thei experi
ment by Mrj Wilder, the efforts were un
successful. ' . t: d
The mangosteen is not in any way re
lated to the mango family as' many
tiiigut'presume, but resembles so'raewhat
in coldr the Water lemon! ' It it about the
siie of a tennis ball and "Very hisdous.
Mr.' Wilder has madecarefaTesearch
fbr drita pertaining to 'the madgosteea
and is in hopes in time of raising many
trees and the supplying of the'tableof his
island home with this delicious fruit.
