New Fiber Crop is
Possible For Hawaii
Experiments In Growing San Hemp
In Kuialia District Most Promis
ing. Government Interested.
The possibility of producing ti
burlap used in making sugar bags,
hero in Hawaii, instead of importing
It at a cost of about ?1,000,000 per
year, has attracted a good deal of at
tention among plantation men recent
ly. Tho matter has been brought to
tho front through tho apparently suc
cessful experiments lately made by
tho federal experiment station on
Maui, in cooperation with tho planters'
experiment station, in tho growing
of san hemp. The primary object in
tho growing of this crop was fol
green manuring purposes, but the fiber
utilization of tho plant is now being
given serious consideration. It is re
ported that tho UniVed .States de
partment of agriculture experts aro
much interested, and that several
plantations arc considering tho mat
ter of securing machinery for prepar
ing tho fiber.
Several acres of san hemp wore
grown In tho Kulaha district this past
summer, and tho results aro declared
to have been most satisfactory. The
crop is apparently perfectly adapted
to local conditions, and easily grown.
At tho present time the homesteaders
In tho Kulaha district aro chiefly in
terested in tho crop from tho seed
producing standpoint. A contract has
been obtained for next years output of
seed at $1G0 per ton, which It is belioV'
ed will produce a fair return. San
hemp is a legumon of tho crotalaria
family, and Is tho same plant from
which tho juto fiber Is obtained in

Maui Teachers Don't
Like Pension Law
Will Have Suggestions For Next Leg
islature. Lahaina Meeting a Big
Success And Well Attended.
Tho new teachers pension law of
tho territory is far from perfect or sat
isfactory, in the opinion of Maui tea
chers, as expressed at tho annuaj
meeting of the Maul Teachers' Asso
ciation, held nt Lahaina, on Friday ot
last week. Much of the tlmo of tho
meeting was devoted to a discussion
of tho matter, and n commltteo was
appointed to still further study the
BUbicct and to ascertain definitely tho
opinion of tho teachers of the county,
with a view to making somo con
structive recommendations to tho next
meeting. Tho committee consists of
J. Vincent, principal of Kealahou
school; II. M. Wells, principal of Paia
school; and F. W. Hardy, principal
of Makawao school.
It was stated at tho meeting that
about 250 teachers in tho territory
have indicated the desire to becomo
beneficiaries under the new pension
law, but it was declnred that the ap
propriation made by the legislature Is
totally inadequate. It was also re
commended by somo of tho speakers,
that the law bo changed so that the
amount of pension may bo governed
in part by the standing of tho teach
ers. The Idea is that the next meeting
of the association will pass resolutions
which will bo submitted to tho next
legislature, urging the necessary
amendments to the present law.
New Officers Chosen.
The meeting this year was probably
tho most interesting and successful
of any yet held by tho association.
Some ninety teachers wcro present,
and about thirty-five visitors. Tho
sessions were held in tho Kamcha
mcha III school. A delicious lunch
was served by the Lahaina teachers,
and during tho afternoon many of
the padagogues took advantage of the
opportunity for a plunge in the surf.
The officers of tho association
chosen for tho ensuing year aro B.
O. Wist, Kamehameha III school, pre
sident; Mrs. Louise Boyum, Hamakua
poko school, vice-president; anil
Moses Kauhlmahu, Kahulul school,
Inspector General George S. Ray
mond, who had just arrived in Hono
lulu from the mainland, was unable to
be present, as he had expected, but
School Commissioner D. C. Lindsay,
and Supervising Principal William L.
McCluskey took a prominent part in
the program of tho day.
Somo exceedingly creditable examp
les of school work, in way of map
drawing, penmanship, and sewing were
exhibited. Wailuku school had a good
display In this connection, as did tho
Lahaina school. Of particular inter
est was tho exhibit of girls' drosses
shown. These wore very neat, and
represented, including tho childrens'
labor, figured at 5 cents per hour, a
total cost of but $1.50.
Tho next meeting of tho association
will be held in Wailuku.

DEAD-LETTER LAW COMES TO
Tokumaru, a Kahulul Japancso ar
rested for hunting without a license,
was dismissed on this charge, but re
arrested on charge of possession of an
unregistered firearm. On this charge
ho was found guilty by Judge Mc
Kay, and fined $10. Although the fire
arm registration law has been In ef
fect for four years or more, this is one
of a very few cases that havo over
come up in this county. Tho law
makes It an offense to own any re
volver or gun, or ammunition, that Is

Territory Can't Help
On Haleakala Road
Opinion of Attorney General Holds
That Counties Must Attend To
All Such Work. Likely to Block
Notwithstanding the fact that Sup
erintendent Forbes, of the public
works department, Indicated his will
ingness to make the necessary survey,
of the proposed road to the summit
of Haleakala, the latest Indications
are that if tho survey is to bo made,
It will have to bo done without tho
territory's assistance. Hugh Howell,
former county engineer, who return
ed from Honolulu last Monday, learn
ed whilo there that Attorney General
Stainback has decided that the ter
ritory cannot legally undertako such
work. The opinion was not rendered
in connection with the Haleakala pro
ject, but was given in connection with
a request of the promotion committee
that a survey bo made of tho trail to
tho summit of Mauna Loa. In this
It is hold that since the matter of
roads has been turned over to tho
counties entirely, it would bo illegal
for the superintendent of public works
to spend any territorial money on
At tho last meeting of tho chamber
of commerce a resolution was adopted
urging the territory to mako a pre
liminary survey, witli the idea that,
if found practicable, tho territorial
convicts might be put to work on the
actual construction. In view of tho
fact that much work on county roads
is demanding attention, it Is rather
doubtful if tho county will bo ablo to
spend the money necessary to mako
tho survey at tho present time.
H. A. Baldwin Is Made
By a general order published this
week, H. A. Baldwin, of Hamakua
poko, is appointed lieutenant-colonel
of tho 3rd Infantry, National Guard
of Hawaii. Mr. Baldwin has agreed
to accept the place, which places him
in command of tho regiment. Ho will
probably later be promoted to rank
