Mr. Dowling has traveled extensive

idea of bringing Korean labor here
by the shipload and is earnestly en
deavoringto interest Hawaiian plan
ters in the scheme. He believes it
will solve the labor problem here in
the most satisfactory way.
Should the planters not favor the
Korean proposition, Mr. Dowling has
another scheme up his sleeve, and
that is to bring some of the 71,000
Russian Drisoners now in Japan to
work on Hawaiian plantations. Or

Deadly enemy of leaf Hopper.
The members of the Hawaiian u

ordinary value at the experimental
Statioti this morning when they visit
ed the place in a body, headed by
President Baldwin', and were shown
everywhere by Prof. Perkins, Direc
tor Eckart, Dr. Cobb, Assistant
Director Lewton Brain and other
members of thi staff. W. M. Giffard,
chairman of the Committee on the
Station, was also a member of the
After registering, the planters
were escorted to the entomological
departmen t, they saw for the first
time the tiny insect which Prof.
Perkins went all the way to Australia
to obtain and which has already
saved many thousands of dollars by
its relentless warfare on the loaf
hopper. The minute insect has a name as
long as a German Prince's but he
does not look it, in fact he does not
look like anything more than a speck
of yellow dust until the microscope is
turned on him. Then it is seen that
it is a fully formed, living and breath
ing entity, head, body and every
other member well defined and per
fect. Under the microscope, an
ordinary ant looks enormous beside
this wee transparent yellow body
with its comparatively big eyes.
Every phase of the manner of its at
tacK on the leaf hopper was shown.
The hopper lays its eggs by the- my
riuds along the cane leaves and these
when hatched out attack the leaves
to their destruction. But it is to
destroy the eggs that the new para
site has for its one mission in life.
It lays its eggs inside the eggs of the
leat hopper. The parasite approaches
an egg cluster which some proud
leaf hopper parent has deposited,
feels them rapidly over with her an
tennae and then "stings" them, thus
depositing her own egg inside. It
has been observed by the scientists
at the station that the parasite,
after feelin? ovecan '.egg, knows at
"stung" or not and if it has, passes
In the next stage shown, the trans
parent egg of the leaf hopper be
comes a cloudy red and it can be
plainly seen that the infinitely minute
young parasite is making trouble
It is living on the contents of the egg
in which it h8s been deposited and
under the high power lenses used
the whole contents can be seen twist
ing and turning about.'
''Then In a comparatively short time
the egg breaks and there emerges
not a young leai nopper to prey on
the sugar cane, but a young parasite
to prey on more leaf hoppers, This
wonderful exposition of the way of
nature absorbed the planters and it
was with difficulty that they could
be persuaded to leave the depart
ment to admire the operations con
ducted in the fields.
Director Eckart showed them first
a field of seedlings planted last May
which had done remarkably well
Some of the cflne was of extraordin
ary growth and won the admiration
of all. An adjolniug lot of seedling
near by, from West India seed, wa

been propagated, from Hawaiian
seed and it had died.
X rom this the party went all ove
the fields remarking on the ccmpara
tive excellence of the differen
growths of cane.
