A week is not too long a timo in

been done wo fill in our original

we always have a fun' lesson
finding out that we can prove every
point by the text.
The study of vegetation follows
most naturally and easily in the
wake of climato. Taking our com
pleted outline for climate I place it
on the board and draw another ex
actly the same as to the division
lines. Then we discuss vegetation.

The class will reason a hot, moist

not know of an instance in which
tho cluss has not been able to fill
out tho outline without tho help of
the book. They will put the forests
on the windward sides of the inoun
tains, tropical forestB in the hot
zone, temperate forests in tho tem
perate region. Of course, we stop
and talk over tropical and temper
ate varieties of trees and products
derived from them.

Meets and Inaugurates Crusade Against
The Board of Directors of the
Maui Chamber of Commerce held a
meeting Wednesday afternoon, in
which the matter of guarding
against tho deadly fruit fly was the
chief topic of discussion. A com
munication was read from the
Board of Agriculturo and Forestry
stating that the police would be
given commissions from that body
soon as the law was changed
giving them tho necessary authority
Mr. Poguo urged the necessity of
immediate action being taken by
the1 Chamber to guard against the
introduction of tho fly on Maui.
Ho declared that on the other isl
ands all soft skinned fruit was be
ing attacked and destroyed by the
fly, and that if precautions were
not immediately taken to prevent
the introduction of the fly here, we
should have no fruit hero either.
He urged that a committee be ap
pointed by tho Chamber to seo that
tho police used diligence in inspect
ing the baggage of incoming passen
gers for infected fruit.
Mr. Williams was in favor of tho
crusade against tho fly, but was of
tho opinion that any inspection of
baggage by othors than police would
meet with popular disapproval.
Mr. Williams moved that tho
secretary inform the Board of Agri
culture that tho Chamber of Com
merce would cooperate in every way
possiblo as soon as the police are
given the necessary power to act.
On motion of Mr. Pogue a com
mittee of four wero appointed to
take charge of the campaign against
the fruit fly on behalf of the Cham
ber. Tho committee consists of
Messrs. J. N. S. Williams, Judge
McKay, L. Weinzeimer and H. B.
A communication from E. A
Berntlt of the harbor commission
was laid on tho table by the direct
ors ana will be taken up oy tne
Chamber lator, when a complete
discussion of tho matter will be in
order, and a reply forwarded to the
Wailuku Hotel Sold.
The Wailuku Hotel which has
been run for some years by Mrs
Schrader, has been sold to Mr
George Trimble, engineer of the
Island Electric Company. Mrs
Schrader has conducted tho hotel
along very popular lines, and it has
become a favorito family hotel, but
sho has felt for some time that the
work is too strenuous for one of her
age, anu hence tho ca so 01 selling

Men on Strike.
The union men at Hana thought
they saw a chanco to demand an
increase of pay last week, when the
schooner Defender arrived, and
they wero put to work unloading
her. Tho plantation refused to
stand for tho raiso and and put
their own men to work on the job
and tho work of unloading went
along as usual.
It is a pity that tho union men
should get into this habit of refusing
to work at a minutes notico, as this
is not the principle of true union
ism, and they can never expect to
receive the support of union men
elsewhere when they act so hastily.

Extension of Lease.
Editor Sheba, went over to Kula
this week and succeeded in getting
the consent of the Haleakala Ranch
people to extend the lease of a por
tion of their lands now being work
ed by Japanese for another year.
This lease had previously been ox
tended in order to allow the Japan
eso to secure other land, but as the
Ranch peoplo needed tho land, they
did not feel inclined- to make a fur
ther extension. Tho Japanese ap
pealed to Mr. Sheba to plead to their
cause, and his mission has been suc
cessful. The Maui Loan l'uud Commission held
a meeting 1'riday evening at the county
clerk's office for the passing of bills and
opening of bids ou the Kula pipe line
