Governor Frear Looks Like Winning
All About Wheeler Our Own
i Honolulu, October 4.
The Fisher hearings pcem to bo
.drawing to a close and without, as
far as the public is aware, much be
ing accomplished. To tho layman
it would appear that Kuhio has
made no visible impression on the
secretary. Up to this writinc not a

uovernor Hrear has been substanti
ated, and whether it is your wisl
- or not the fact remains Frear ha3
the best chance ever to bo reappoint

tho specific charges were being heard
on Monday, in response to a ques

, that tho charges against tho Govern

However, on Thursday Jast. as
Miss Pratt approached one of the
gates that are on the road, the horse
became scared at a pile of wood
chips, and suddenly swerved into
small ditch. Miss Pratt was
thrown out and, lighting on her
head, was at once rendered
unconscious. Miss Pratt remem
bers nothing else till she came to
her senses in her own home.
It was Mr. Hocking, of Paia. who
discovered Miss Pratt lying by the
way side. Hocking is an overseer
of tho Maui Agricultural Company.

Big Sale of
No Less Than Eight Hundred Million
Feet Of Timber Sold At One
From the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture, Chief Forester
Graves is on lus way to San Fran
cisco to make final arrangements
under which a California lumber
company will purchase 800 million
feet of timber on the Sinrra Nation
al Forest. Tho timber has already
been awarded, after public adver
tisement, to tho highest bidder, but
under tho teams of the advertise
ment the final signing of the con
tract will not take place until the
company has been shown on the
ground what timber the Government
will reservo from cutting in order to
proservo good forest conditions and
provide for reproduction.
Tho company will bo allowed its
full 800 million feet, but naturally
it will not bo allowed to cut clean.
As a rule the Forest Service reserves
something like one-third of the
forest stand in applying forestry on
Government holdings. A marking
board made up of one man sent from
Washington, one from the District
office in San Francisco, and the
local Forest Supervisor will carefully
mark a sample area, to show how
tho restrictions on cutting will be
applied. Representatives of the
company will then go over this area,
after which Chief Forester Graves
and his assistants will, it is expect
ed, make final arrangements with
tho company in San Francisoo, and
tho contract of sale will bo signed.
The Forest Service," said Mr.
Graves in sneakinc of this sale.
has received a number of inquiries
whether in selling so much timber
to a single purchases tho Govern
ment may not bo opening tho way
to a monopolistic control of local
lumber markets. Other correspond
ents are disturbed lost the sale
prove a bad bargain for tho Govern
ment through the rise in value of
tho timber in the twenty-two years
during which the company will cut.
Such largo and long time sales
of National Forest timber as that
to tho California company are a
new development in Forest Service.
Great bodies of mature but inacces
sible timber can bo put on tho
market only if sale contracts arc let
on terms which will justify a very
heavy initial investment in trans
portation facilities. In entering in
to such contracts, however, special
safeguards to protect tho public
against monopoly and to prevent an
undue speculative profit to tho pur
chaser aro employed.
"Tho National Forests contain,
in all, tho equivalent of nearly GOO
billion feet of timber now of mer
chantable size, besides young growth
for futuro harvest. Because of its
remoteness from market and the
wild, mountainous country, without
transportation facilities, in which
most of it lies, only a small percent
age can now bo sold on any terms.
Most of it would cost moro to got it
out than, it would bring. The sale
of less than one-fifth of one per cent
of our total supply to one company
leaves plenty of room for competi
tion by other companies.
Tho timber which has been sold
to tho California company lies well
back in tho Sierra Nevada Mountains
and will require tho construction of
70 miles of standard-gaugo railroad
to open up tho area. Since this
road will also open up other Nation-
