Considerable work has already
been done in terracing and laying out

of idem for hnprovi meats, with both

and 'oi l in the work of beautifying.
Many improvements may lie looked
for in the near future. Several sug
gestions have been made verbally to
Mr. MacDonnld and Mr. Flack in re

of the grounds. These will be acted
on as soon as time and plants are

the tract, commences at an elevation
of about 700 feet above sea level and
runs up to the top of the mountain.
This tract, esin ee.ily the lower part,
without irrigation, is of iit'.le or no
use for agrice.ltut al purposes. The
soil is rich, being of the red loam

be valuable for various crops.

For the mountain triict the follow

Wattle (Acacia decurrens), planted

foot, level, and up to tha top of
the mountain: Eucalyptus robusta,
Acacia melanoxyion for the most ex
posd places. For the more sheltered
places: Cryptomeria japonica, Grc
illea robusta and Acacia Koa.
The Black- Wattle will produce tan
bark, firewotd and fence posts, while
the others collectively when mature
can be used for almost every purpose
from the richest furniture to the
heaviest brains and t ile.s or any other
purpose, where strength and dura
bility are required.
In conclusion I would respectfully
suggest that, in addition to the leach
ing of agriculture and horticulture,
etc., which Mr. Flack is so ably con
ducting, the llawuiian youths who
are so inclined be given an appor
tunity to learn the principal branches
of practical forestry.
In the opinion of the writer this
sihool with over 10U0 acres of hind,
the greater part of which is only
suitable for forest purposes, is in a
position through the cooperation of
the Board of Public Instruction and
the Board of Agriculture and Fores
try to set an examp'e and show the
private land owner and others that
the government is m earnst in its
forest policy. The spreading of the
knowledge ami benelits of forestry in
this way among the Bawaiians may
be of value to the Territory in yeard

Captain Josselyu of the bark Nuu
aim, wh'uh ariived yesterday from
New Voil:, reports most remarkable
phenomena in Loth the Atlantic and
Pacific all the more interesting to
the master of the Nuuanu for the
reason that he has been going to sea
for DO years and lias never before had
dose ,.t quaii.t.oice with iceberg?,
licit to Veil the story briefl; , in the
eaptrin' owe words;
"We sio'e l from New Yoik, Tu"S

"In latitude -H sooth, longit ude
west, we, veiy unexpectedly, es you
may imagine, fell in witn a lo' of huge
icebergs. It was on September 13
and before daylight V" observed a
great .vl.ile eloml to windward and a
littie later we saw another cloud ofT
the weather quarter. If was 2.")0
miii's north of where icebergs are us
ually seen and we had no idea at the
time that, we were running into it
hunch t f icebergs. As it. grew light
we sighted an island to leeward;
knowing there was no land there
abouts 1 came to t'i conclusion that
we were among ice. We were com
pletely surroundel, there were i!2
bergs on one side of us. All day we
sa;3d at the mte of 7 or 8 knots but
it was nearly dark before we left the
army of icebergs. The bergs aver
ng'-il from 200 to lUtlU feet- in height.
They were temptingly white, like
ice cream and were shaped like huge
blocks ,,f granite, nud some were

pointed roofs. I never saw anything

shape of a big arm chair, 21)0 feet
"What male us so anxious was
that we saw a quantity of Oregon
pine lumber floating among tin; bergs
and we came to the conclusion that
some vessel carrying thin lumber had
either ttiro-vn over her d'ck-Io d or
had gone ashore on one of the bergs.
V" kept a -harp lookout but su w no
other s'gns of j wreck. A few whales
were sporting among the ice moun
tains, but very few birds.
Another peculiar thing: On th-e
line m the Pacific I found the tem
pera t n i e of the wal"r only 70 degrees,
cooler than the Waters of Hawaii. In
a!l my experience, and I've been ail
over the world, I never knew the
water at, the equator any wnere to be
less than 80 degrees.
"From this and from the icebergs
in the Athletic so far north it would
appear to me that there is in process
a wonderful migration of ice from the
antartic ocean northward, and, as it
moves it is cooling thc-ci an right to
"All this, of course, will be of great
interest to scientists who are closely
observing seismic and other phenom
ena of the past few years, tremen

The Nuuanu came to port looking
like, a new shin She is as clean and
tempting as the marvelous icebergs
of which lie master speaks.

Washington, December M. The
House of Representatives was
brought face to face today with the
proposition to increase the salaries
of its own members, Senators, the
Vice-President, the speaker of the
House and members of the'President's
Cabinet, and while it passed favor
ably cm the proposition as applied to
other officials, refused to make the
order for members cf either house of
Littauer of New York, who had
given notice that he would oiler the
amendments to the legislative bill
necessary to accomplish the propos
ed increase immediately, secured the
floor after the previous question had
been ordered on the bill, and present
ed an amendment raising the salaries
of the Vice-President and the Speak
er of the House to j 12,1100 per annum
Underwood of Alabama, said that
he was o posed to an- further in
crease of s alaries along the line of
legislative and executive officers. He
further sa'd he believed the salaries
of the minor clerks of the Govern,
merit should be increased on account
of the increased coot of living. Be
sr.id he would not contend that a
Congressman could live in Washing
ton and keel) pace with modern society.
Fitzgerald of New York said ho
would vote for the increase, even it
the price he paid was political oblivi
After other speeches the amend
ment wis adopted by a vote of 211
to 51, the opposition failing Insecure
votes enougii to call the aves and
Littauer then introduced another
amendment, fixing the salaries "f
Cabinet, ollieers ut 12,000 per annum
after March 4, 1007. The amend
ment was adopted by a vole of 204
Littauer, who retires to private
life with the close of the present Con.
gresj, then offered ti provision rais
ing the salaries of Senator! and
members of Coinress, delegates and
the resident Commissioner from
Porto Rico to $7."i00, and on agree
ment the time for the increase to
begin was fixed on March 4, 1900.
Representative Clark of Florida
was accorded an ovation when he
announced that he desired to discms
the question from the standpoint of a
poor num. He called attention to
the fact that men are leaving the
service of the country and returning
to pri.ate life, solely because the
salary which they receive in official
positions wa inadequate.
"I believe," he said, '"there are
not ten men on this floor who in
private conversation will not say:
The Salary is inadequate; the in
crease is right, but some will say,- 'I
cannot afford to vote for it.' ".
The amendment was defeated by a
vote of lot! ayes, 188 noes.
The legislative, executive and
judicial appropriation bill was then
passed without fu.-ther change.
City of Mexico, December 14,- The
details of the railway merger, by
which the Mexican Government takes
control of all the important lines iin
the republic, are now known. Bv the
terms of the contract the Govern
ment secures absolute control of the
Mexican Central, the Notional, the
International, the Interoceanic, and
the Hida'go and Northeastern, all of
which will be merged into one great
railroad system." The Government
also comes into co.itrol of the Texas
Mexican, a railroad at Laredo, Tex.,
which is owned by the National. Thi
mileage of the system, with exten
sions which a re. rapidly nearing com
pletion will aggregate approximate
ly 10,000 miles. The Tehuantepec
National and Vera Cnu and Pacific,
two other railroads controlled by the
Government, will continue to be
operated as independent companies.
A Mexican com pan', of which a
majority of the stock will be held by
the Mexican Government, will be
organized, with headquarters in
Mexico City. The company will is
sue its securities in exchange for the
securities outstanding of the two
companies, and the new company will
acquire all the property and conces
si cms held by the old companies. It
is proposed to create a board of
twentyone directors, to be divided
into a general board, which will re
side iu Mexico, and a local board,
with headquarters in New York.
The board in Mexico will consist of
twelve members and the New York
board of nine.
The new company will make a lim
ited issue ot prior lien bonds at 41
per cent, and general mortgage
bonds at 4 per cent, the principal
and interest of the later btg guar
anteed by the Mexican Govtrnmeut.
Iu addition to the , bond issues the
company will issue first aud second
preferred and common stock. It is
proposed to leave an ample reserve
iu each and securities for future im
provement, development and exten
sion of the lines of the company and
for the acquisition of additional roll
ing stock aud motive power.
It is expected that by a reduction
of the general charges, the elimin
ation of competition, the economical
routing of freight and by the increas
ed development of the properties the
uew company will not only be able to
meet Its fixed charges, but will earn
at an early date dividends on its first
and second preferred stock.
