For some time reports have come
n to the sheriff that the fruit fly
was in different places on Maui, but
on investigation, no sign of the pest
could be found Last Saturday
morning, however, James Cornwell
handed a bag of Chinese oranges to
the sheriff, in which he claimed the
fruit fly magots would bo found.
On opening the oranges they were
found to be alive inside, and on
close examination thoy appeared to
have all the identifying marks of
the embryo fruit fly. The fruit was
shown to the different members of
the Chamber of Commerce commit
tee, and it was decided by the she
riff that the best thing to do was to
Bend the samples to Honolulu to
the experts in order that there
might be no mistake made. In the
meantime orders were issued and
all the fruit in the orchard of Pia
Cockett at Waikapu, where the sup
posed fruit fly was found, has been
destroyed, and a close watch is be
ing kept on all fruit in the vicinity,
and just as soon as there are any
signs elsewhere, the fruit will be
destroyed also. Up to the present
time, no word has been received
from Honolulu, as to what has been
the result of the examination of the
fruit sent there.

Ad Wolgast, the champion of to
day, is too' much of a business man
to hazard his money in speculations.
Ad doesn't care for the glare of the
night life and you will rarely sec
him in the haunts where the sports
are supposed, to congregate. He has
a penchant for diamonds, the bigger
the batter, and also spends much of
his time in figuring out real estate
deals, having bought considerable
property in the southern part of the
time who knows the value of a dol
lar, Ad Wolgast is the man.
Battling Nelson, generally con
sidered thrifty, has been labeled as
one of the unluckfest investors
among the fighters. The Dane has
always listened with a kindly ear to
real estate propositions and never
more so than when it was a farm at
stake. Stocks, mining and other
wise, 'have attracted his attention,
and that is why he has less to show
for his investments than one might
expect. His buy of Ilegewisch city
property was a disappointment, ho
has a lot of stocks that will never
bring what he paid for them and
his farming purposes are said to
have been less, than fair business
ventures. For all that, I doubt if
there is a busier fighter In thu game
than Battling. Nelson, for he can
generally occupy himself with one
thing or another. ft
One couldn't say that Jimmy
Britt is a chap with any particular

Terry McGovcrn used to bo a great
fellow Jo spend lots of time with
his babies. Young Corbett, on the
contrary, liked always to be up and
doing. There was no greater gam
bler than tho Denvcrite, which is
why he camo to the end with so lit
tle money. To this day, race track
followers tell of tho afternoon when
Young Corbett lost $9000, all tho
money he had in tho world, and
never turned a hair.
John L. Sullivan liked to drink
beer and hobnob with his friends in
the barrooms, but it must bo re
membered that Sullivan was of a

prime amusement for fistic cham
pions. Bob Fitzsimmons had ono fad.
Whenever there was an idle moment.
Fitz could bo found in some black
smith shop and all over the country

by Ruby Robert.
James J. Corbett was a fancy
dresser, but by way of recreation ho
was very much of a card player.
Corbett, when in his prime as a
ringstcr, never played for anything
more than nominal stakes, but whist j
and tho liko whiled away many an
hour for him.

The bill for the removal -of all
duties on imported sugar, which
has passed the IIouso of Representa
tives might well bo called a. bill' to
promote tho election ,of a Republi
can President, for it Is a concrcto
illustration of what the Democrats
mean when they avow the intention
of sweeping every vestige of protec
tion from our statutes.
The bill will not become a law
until after the 4th of next March.
Whether that or any similar bill
a stalwart Republican liko President-,
Taft or a free-trade Democrat like l.j
Champ Clark, Woodrow Wilson o'rV
Governor Harmon. J
Whether tho bill will pass tjiej,
Senate is uncertain. It depends on!' -the
attitude of such Senators as
Works, who is not known to have ,
any views of his own on the tariff,
but is associated with other namby- ;
pambys who profess to be Republi
cans but who usually join withJ.be
Democrats in assaults on the funda
mental Republican doctrine. '
In tho meantime those interested
in beet-sugar culture are organizing
to resist tho threatened destruction
of their industry, but they may as
well understand that they will have
no influenco if they do not avow
themselves equally ready to oppose
tho destruction of other industries.
The consumption of sugar by tho
average family is about 300 pounds
a year, and with tho "saving" of
Vz cents per pound promised by
Mr. Underwood, each family would
"savo" less than 1 cents a day
by free sugar.
But if our workingmen and clerks
take the bait and assist in destroy
ing our beet-sugar industry, they
should know without our telling
them that a good many millions of
farmers will vote to tako the duty!
from products by tho manufacture
of which they live and reduce tho
wages which industry and commerce
in this country can pay.
The sugar-beet industry', is 110
more danger than all other American
industries. If one is put on a f ree
trado basis, the rest will probably
go there also. Instead of organiz
ing to savo tho sugar industry tho
sugar-beet growers must organize to
save protection to American indust
ries bar nono that is worthy of
And that means to send stalwart
Republicans to Congress and not yj
such wobblers as Senator Work's ;
who is likely to get universal con
tempt by voting for protection to
his own immediate constituents
whilo voting to rcmovo it from
Tho danger to protection comes
solely from tho so-called- insurgent
Republicans. To elect ono of them
or any Ono in avowed sympathy
with them is to vote for free trade
and tho European scalo of wages.
