men who ninrciu-d in the big parade
under the iiiMgnia of the Honolulu
lodge. Their numbers were not
many but the distinctive feature of
the leis, poiuething that hundreds of
those who witnessed the Elks parade
had never seen before, was some
thing that helped to bring the re
presentatives of the Honolulu lodge
into prominence at every turn.
Elks now living in California

Honolulu branch of the order ex
erted every effort to ref.ch Los
Angeles and' swell the numbers
that acted as the representatives
of the order in the islands during
the week of festivities and joy

It was without donbt one of the
most successful affairs of the kind
ever held in the history of the or

festivity from the first day and
everyone entered into the spirit of
the occasion. There was an un
expected number of members who
formerly lived in Honolulu that
came to swdl the ranks. The pic

the parade shows a number of
familiar faces and all did their

Los Angeles is an ideal conven
tion city and the arrangements for
the gathering of the Elks and their
entertainment was left largely in
the hands of Motley Flint, who
has had large experience in work
of that kind. As a result nothing
in the way of entertainment was
The program of entertainment
included trips to all the nearby
beach towns of which Southern
California abounds and which
possess the most modern attrac
tions in the way of enjoyment.
That the gathering was one of
the largest that has ever been held
in the history of n fraternal order
id shown by the fact that approxi
mately 48,000 Elks were registered
at the Los Angeles hotels and that
it is estimated by the railroad com
panies that wer6 engaged in the
passenger traffic from out of .town
points that fully 100.000 visitors
came to Los Angeles during the
week of the session.
Incidental to the object of the
visit to Los Angeles the Elks who
represented the Territory of Ila
waii also did something in the line
of promotion work. If all of those
who stated they would come to the
islands during the course of the
next winter find it possible to keep
their intention there will be be

Strike leaders Recipients of
From the Hawaiian Star. Jap
anese strikers are returning. to Wni-
pahu and Aien plantation in large
numbers, but a few remaining out.
The city camps are leing abandoned.
The planters see the end of trouble,
and anonymous letters to proiflinent
prosecutors are about all that is em
phasizing the vanity of a hopeless
cause, though threats of assassination
are now not limited toward those
who are bringing Higher Wage As
sociation leaders to justice, but are
Ix-ing voiced toward the leaders
themselves, rumors of vengeance on
unsuccessful strike leaders, at the
hands of Japanese who have lost
heavily through the strike, now
alarming the already worried Mnki-
no and Negoro.
"The- strike situation is now un
dergoing the clarifying process,"
said E. Faxon Bishop, representing
the Planters' Association this morn
"Laliorers are returning to the
plantations, we are not worrying,
and the strikebreakers will le con
tinued for the present. The strike
breakers went to work this morning
and they will go to work Monday."
Agents for the Honolulu Planta
tion, Aiea, report their old Japanese
laborers returning to the fields to
day, and a thousand men arc back
to work on Wainahu, five hundred
leaving the .town camps yesterday
afternoon for the country, and Jap
anese who had In-en in camp at Wai
pahu returning to their duties yes
terday at noon.
The city strike camps are !cing
deserted and the orders- of the
Higher Wage Association, that all
men return to work, are for the
most part, being obeyed.
Little remains of the strike except
the soreness of a few anonymous
trouble-makers who are expressing
their fevered emotions and endeav
oring to terrify the community by
sending threatening letters to pro
minent men identified with the pro
secution of the leaders of the Higher
Wage Association for alleged con
E. Faxon Bishop, while he docs
not consider it a threatening missile,
was recently in receipt of an anony
mous communication, in English,
typewritten, asking him what he in
tended to do alxmt the situation, a
newspaper clipping being enclosed.
He paid no more attention to the
matter than to destroy the letter.
In stating that the strike situation
is now undergoing the clarifying
process, E. Faxon Bishop is of the
idea that what remains of the strike
will naturally settle itself without
further trouble, forces having been
set in motion that can result in
nothing but the wind-up of the
In regard to threatening letters,
to W. A. Kinney, Judge De Bolt
and others, the police are inclined
to lielicve that they are not "in the
nature of empty threats and they
are, therefore, doing all in their
power to ascertain the source or
sources of the unlawful epistles.
Y. Kimura, editor of the Ha
waiian Japanese .Chronicle, is tin
latest recipient of a threatening U t
ter, the writer of which declares he
came from Kauai to kill Sheba and
was disappointed when Mori got
ahead of him at the assault, but he
intimates that he will complete the
job that Mori began w hen Sheba
gets out of hospital. lhe writer
condemns Kimura for being a friend
to Sheba anil declares that he, Ki
mura, is in danger of his life for
condemning Mori for trying to kill
Among a certain element of the
Japanese eolonythcre is praise for
Mori and talk to the effect that
SheUi should have been killed, but
there is also talk of unotlier kind of

for Race Settlement.
Ililo, August !. As an iiftermath
of the race fiasco in llilo O'Uourkc
and Brughelli have written the
Fourth of July committee ns follows:
llilo, Hawaii, July 81, 190l.
To the Fourth of July Committee,
Sirs: We desire to have the dif
ferences of the meeting at lloolulu
park on July Ord and oth adjusted
by arbitration, and ask that you
cooperate with us.
We to appoint one man, you to
appoint one, and the two to select
tin- third, then all matters to be ad
justed by them, all parties agreeing
to abide by the decision of the com
The above is the text of a letter
which has been sent to Chairman
Moir of the Fourth of July Com
mittee. It is self-explanatory.
Mr. Moir, when reached on the
telephone yeste rday forenoon, stated
that he hail not as yet received t he
etter, and when the contents there
of were made known to him, he
stated that he could not say as yet
what attitude he would take in re
gard to the matter. He thought that
this would depend to a great extent
on whom Brughelli and O'Rmirke
selected as their arbitrator. In this
connection he mentioned the fact
that he had heard that they intend
ed to put up a certain man (whom
he named), who had been quoted as
saying that the entire race affair was
the outcome of a scheme on the part
of the judges to do up O'Roiirke.
Mr. Moir did not know if this were
true, it lieing only hearsay as far as
he was concerned, but he did not
think that such a man would make
a very good arbitrator.
Manager Wright of the Volcano
Stables, who is a member of the
committee, stated that he was much
in favor of the arbitration idea, as
outlined, as he thought that this
was the best way in which to get
all the questions which have arisen,
settled. Wm. McKay, the third
member of the committee, said
when seen yesterday afternoon, that
be did not wish to express his
opinion until after the proixisition
had been regularly laid lie fore him.
assassination and that is the assas
sination of Higher Wage Association
leaders by men who consider them
selves the victims of a system that
was not so much determined to win
higher wages for the laborers as it
was in gathering in good salaries for
the leaders. There are two sides to
the standing of the Higher Wage'
Association leaders, one lot of Jap
anese is regarding Negoro, Makino,
Soga and others as martyrs for that
they are suffering prosecution in an
alleged attempt to lietter the con
ditions of the laboring Japanese,
while another lot is considering the
leaders, particularly Negoro and
Makino, as adventurers who have
taken advantage of the laboring class
merely to better their own conditions
financially and otherwise.
There are among those affected by
the strike, many men with families
who gave up more than a mere daily
wage to follow the standard of the
strike scheme and who have lost
hundreds of dollars and, erhaps,
the chance to recuperate their losses,
in the many weeks that the strike
has endured. Homes have been
broken up and thoughts of injustice
arc rankling and, therefore, it is not
to lx- wondered at that there an
rumors of the ossible' assassination
of Makino and Negoro. And Makino
and Negoro are well aware of this
condition of affairs and it is not mi
proving there rest, nor bettering
their health. It is not government
prosecution, alone, that they fear,
but it is the possibility of attack
from among their own countrymen
when least expected.
To Prevent Introduction of
The following has been sent out
by the 1 lepartiiM iit of Ajrrieult un .
Dr. L. O. Howard, Chief uf th,-
Bureau of Kntotnnliur.v of the 1'. S.
De partment of Agriculture, h.i re
turned to Washington from 1 Jinpe,
win re lie has been engaged during
the jxist month in interviewing paid
and volunteer agents of the Depart
ment of Agriculture and the State
of Massachusetts who are assisting
in the importation into the United
States of the parasites and other
natural enemies of the gipsy moth
and brown-tail moth. In the course
of this work, Doctor Howard visited
France, Holland, (iermany, Russia,
Austria, Hungary, Switzerland, and
England, and the results of the trip
ire already evidenced by the receipt
at the parasite laboratory, Melrose
Highlands, Mass., of a greatly in
creased amount of parasitized ma
terial, which is being handled at
that jMjint by expert assistants and
will subsequently be liberated in
woodlands ravaged by the gipsy and
brown-tail moths. A great interest
is shown in the different Eurojican
countries in this very large-scale ex
perimental work, and the. oflicial
entomologists and others are anxious
to do everything in their power to
help the United States.
' The brown-tail moth, it will be
rcmcmlicrcd, was accidentally in
troduced into this country upon
plants imported from Europe. Many
other injurious insects have been
brought in in the same way, and
the danger still exists in the absence
of any national quarantine and in
spection law. Such quarantine and
inspection laws are in force in nearly
all the civilized countries of the
world, and the United States is al
most unique in its indifference to
this great danger. The amount of
money that has been spent by the
different States in New England and
by the General Government in light
ing the gipsy and the brown-tail
moths alone would supjxtrt a na
tional insertion service for many
years. Last winter there wire
brought into the United States,
mainly at the iirt of New York,
thousands of apple and pear seed
lings from France which carried the
winter nests of the brown-tail moth.
These seedlings were distributed all
over the country. An effort was
made, through the assistance of tl.e
custom-house authorities and the
railroads, to trace all of these ship
ments to their destination and to
secure insertion and destruction of
the injurious insects before the open
ing of spring It is probable that
these efforts were successful, but t In
experience emphasizes the necessity
for a national law.
Doctor Howard was instructed by
Secretary Wilson to visit the leading
exiMirting nurseries in Holland,
France, and England in order to
determine the ellieiency of any in
spection service that might exist 'in
those countries. He found that the
inspection service in Holland is ex
cellent, as conducted by J. Ritsema
Bos, of Wageningen, and his assis
tants. Nursery stock bearing the
inspection cert itieate of these oflicials
can Ik- accepted in this country
without any danger.
In France it was found that no
governmental insicction service ex
ists and that the certificates which
have hitherto accompanied nursery
stock from that country can not be
relied uon. After consultation
with the leading nurserymen and
the authorities of the Ministry of
Agriculture of France, Doctor Ho
ward was assured by the Director of
Agriculture, M. Yassillii re, that the
French Government w ill immediate
ly establish an otlicial insertion
service, under the direction of Dr.
Paul Marehal, a thoroughly com
jx-tent man well known for his work
on injurious insects, so that in the
future nursery stock coming from
will l- sweetened by netting into a pair of

France and bearing the inspection
certificate of the Ministry of Agri
culture can be relied upon.
In England, it was found that no
governmental inspection service for
home nurseries exists. Officials of
the Board of Agriculture assured
Doctor Howard that it is the disirc
of the lxiard to establish such a ser
vice, but that the demand must
come from the English nursery men.
Members of the (!ouncil of the Na
tional Association of Nurserymen,
of England, were then interviewed,
and it seems reasonably certain that
this influential organization will re
quest the Board of Agriculture to
establish such a service under the
direction of some competent ..en
tomologist like Mr. Cecil Warbur
ton, at Cambridge, or Mr. F. V.
Theobald, of Wye.
Caught In Squall And Do Not
llilo, Hawaii, August 10. Kaili
anu and Nakahina, two well known
Hawaiian from Waiakea, have been
missing ever since July 2-3. When
last seen they were drifting in a
boat in the teeth of a squall along
the Puna coast, and there is every
reason to believe that tlu-v have ln-cn
The two men were members of a
party of four who went fishing near
Kiioho. Kailianu and Nakahina
were in a Whitehall boat, and the
others in a sampan. On Sunday!
they were fishing near Kaiolio, and
during the afternoon the two Ha
waiian) who are missing, transfer
red all the contents of their boat,
with the exception of a lmttle of
water, to the sampan which was the
larger of the two crafts. During
the night the men in the sampan
saw the light used by them while
fishing until a squall sprang up
which endangered both the Wit
and the sampan. In order to seek
safety on the open sea the men in
the sampan cut both their anchor
ropes, but their steering oar broke,
and they bad a hard time to get
out, but finally managed to do so
by means of the jib. In the mean
time the boat was drifting Hilo
wards, while the sampan was drift

unfortunate men they were having
a very hard time of it, the squall
being a very heavy one, and it is
the firm belief of the men in the
sampan that the Whitehall boat
could not possibly ride out the gale.
As a matter of fact, the sampan al
most foundered, and the occupants
were unable to make a landing un

The survivors immediatefy made
a report of the matter to the rela

and a search went on during the
rest of the wi-ck, but with no suc
cess. Yesterday it was reported that
a fishing party of women from Pa
hoa had found wreckage from a boat
and fishing tackle on the beach, and
it is Ix-licved that this is a sure in
dication of the unfortunate fate
which overtook the two fishermen.
