Judge Stuart Starts
Fight On Governor
Wants Courts to Upset Administra
tion's Land Policy. Fight To Go
To Congress, It Is Said.
HONOLULU, November 10. Alleg
ing that Governor Flnkham and Land
Commissioner J. D. Tucker are un
lawfully withholding nubile lands in
the territory from settlement, and that
they have imposed impossible terms
as a condition upon which the small
tracts opened may be taken, Judge
Thomas B. Stuart, of the First Circuit
Court in Honolulu, has launched an
attack against the territorial admin
istration in the form of a petition for
mandamus filed on Monday in the
Honolulu courts. Judge Stuart's peti
tion, which is a lengthy one, would
compel the Land Commissioner to ac
cept his tender of cash for a certain
homestead lot which he holds, and to
remove a large number of the con
ditions under which the lot was taken
up. He would also have almost all
of the restrictions to homesteading
lands in the islands taken off, and
would compel the administration to
throw open the entire public lands
as fast as demand may be made for
Judge Stuart claims that under the
Organic Act, the Governor is required
to open any lands of the territory
upon petition of 25 or more eligible
homesteaders, and to in any event
have surveyed and opened a certain
amount of land each year, in tracts
of sufficient size to support an ordin
ary family. The Governor has done
none of these things, the petition as
serts, and on the contrary has im
posed so many obstacles and petty and
ridiculous conditions to homesteading
that the law is frustrated.
The Honolulu jurist says that the
administration's contention that pub
lic land in the island is very limited,
is untrue, in that there are over
1,631,818.27 acres of such land; but
he declares that the 15-acre lot that
he drew from the bag as a homestead
on the windward side of Oahu is too
rough for a goat to negotiate, and en
tirely inadequate to support a family.
He wants the courts to force the land
commissioner to accept his money
and give him title to thia homestead,
and also to cancel the condition by
which the water rights to a small
stream on the place is reserves, to
revoke the residence and tree plant
ing conditions, and in short all pro
visions except that prohibiting the
transfer of the land to a corporation
or to anyone owning over 80 acres of
Judge Steart says that the Gover
nor has made a dead letter of the acts
of congress, and prevented thousands
of American families, clamoring for
homes in Hawaii, the most salubrious
and productive of any land on earth,
from obtaining them; while "at the
same time are shipping in foreign
peon labor at heavy expense to the
tax payers; that in the last two years
over 18.000 Filipinos of the lower and
criminal class have been introduced
into Hawaii, though the personal ac
tivity of the defendants."
It is reported that this is the open
ing gun in the fight which will be car
ried to Washington during the coming
session of Congress, against Pinkham
and his policies. Judge Stuart will
be supported by the faction of demo
crats in the island, including Link
McCandless, who have been at outs
with the administration from the
start. , I
Mrs. J. X!. Foss, Jr. Dies
Of Typhoid in Illinois
The many friends of Mrs. J. C. Foss.
Jr., were grieved to learn through the
Dally Wireless of last Saturday of her
aeatn, which had occurred the day
before in Mendon, Illinois, as a re
sult of typhoid fever. The deceased
was the wife of Contractor Foss, of
Wailuku, who is at present in Hilo
engaged on a big wharf and road con
tract for the territory.
Mrs. Foss went to the coast a little
over a year ago in the hope that the
change would benefit her health. She
had planned to return to the islands
some time ago, but had later decided
to put off coming until spring when
Mr. Fobs' work in Hilo will be finished.
Besides her husband, Mrs. Foss is
survived by two children Alice, aged
6, and Calvin, aged 2 years. Mr. Foss
expects to bring them back to the Is
lands as soon as practicable to do so.

Cures Sorehead by
A Serum Treatment
Dr. Victor A. Norgaard Reports Inter
esting and Important Discovery
Would be Boon to Poultry Raisers.
That chickens may be rendered im
mune to sorehead or chicken pox by
means of a serum treatment, is the
announcement Just made by Dr. Victor
A. Norgaard, territorial veterinarian,
In a report to the board of agriculture
and forestry. If the plan proves as
practicable in practice as would seem
to be Indicated from Dr. Norgaard's
experiments, one of the chief diffi
culties in the matter of raising poul
try in Hawaii would eeem to have
been removed. Inasmuch as the great
est havoc from sorehead occurs in
flocks of young chickens, from a few
weeks to a few months old, it will re
main to be seen whether or not such
young birds may be successfully treat
ed, since the report on the subject
would seem to indicate that experi
ments made were with mature fowls.
The following detailed outline of the
new method of treatment is contain
ed in Dr. Norgaard's report:
"Sore Head, Roup or Chicken Pox.
"This disease, familiar to every
poultry raiser in the territory, has
for years been held responsible for
the lack of interest taken in the egg
and poultry business here. While it
must be admitted that the disease,
once it gains entrance into the yards
and runs of a successful chicken farm
er, is likely to cause him some loss
and a great deal of inconvenience, if
he makes an earnest effort at curing
the affected birds and prevent the
healthy ones from taking it, still it is
curable in 90 per cent of cases. The
old method 6f treatment, however, is
tedious as each bird must be caught
and handled a number of times, and
the disease frequently gets out of
hand, and in Bpite of every effort ap
pears again and again among the seg
regated healthy birds.
"It is therefore a pleasure to an
nounce that a new cure and preven
tative has been found whb.'h not alone
reduces to a minimum the number of
times the affected birds must be han
dled, but th? appiicalion of vhich to
the healthy birds acts as a vaccine
which immunizes them for at least a
year and perhaps for life. The method
is simple but requires some care in
the preparation of the vaccine.
"The latter is made by scraping the
crusts off the tumors and cores which
appear on the comb, wattles and skin
of the head. These crusts are care
fully weighed, then ground in a mor
tar with a sterile salt solution, strain
ed through cheese cloth, and the re
sulting fluid is then heated for an
hour over a water bath at a tempera
ture of 55 degree C. and the vaccine
Is ready for use. With a hypodermic
syringe, a dose of 2 cc. is injected
under the skin of the abdomen near
the-thigh where the skin is free of
feathers. This treatment has no detri
mental effect upon the healthy birds,
but actually prevents them from be
coming affected even when left among
the sick ones. The latter should oe
treated as usual at the same' time
they are injected, that is by painting
the tumors and sores from which the
crusts have first been removed with
tincture of iodine. The number of
affected birds cured is at least twice
as large as without vaccination.
"In order to Introduce this treai-
men there it is desired that owners
of birds suffering from sore head, roup
or chicken pox at once communicate
with this office and at the same time
forward scrapings from which to pre
pare the vaccine. Only crusts taken
from the comb, wattles and head
should be used, not the exudate from
the nostrils nor the diphtheritic mem
branes from the mouth. The quantity
required is about a teaspoonful but
less can used (minimum 15 grains).
Place the crusts in a wide-mouth bot
tle, seal and forward in a mailing case
by special delivery to the undersigned.
If possible the vaccine will be sent
by return mail. When removing the
crusts wipe off the blood with ab
sorbent cotton and paint the sores
with tincture of iodine."
In Order to Marry
Homesteading on a Kuiaha lot
didn't look good to Miss Danielson,
when she had a chance to get married
and go to the coast, which accounts
for the fact that the territorial land
commissioner last week declared for
feited one of the newer lots in the
Kuiaha-Kaupakalua tract. Miss Dan
ielson, it is said, had made no im
provements on her property, and to
all intents had abandoned it when
she left the territory. The forfeiture
was approved by Governor Pinkham
The Governor also approved of
mortgages made between Edward Her
rick Brown and the First National
Bank of Paia; and between Thurston
n. Hinckley and the First National
Bank of Pala. Both of these mort
gagors are homesteaders in the Kui
ACTION ON WELLS AVENUE
EXTENSION IS DEFERRED
The matter of making the extension
of Wells avenue to connect with High
street, was yesterday deferred by the
board of supervisors until after the
new appropriations are made. The
county engineer submitted a report
on the matter together with plana
for the nronoeed warW. Including
an estimate of $250 damages to Diego
Monlz, the work is estimated to cost
something over $600, to which must
be added the amount required for con
demning a strip of the W. T. Robin
son property, amounting to 2471
