The Kalihiwai wharf proposition
is in the same class with the Ha
napepe School affair. The Hono
lulu officials have a way of neglect

likely to be appreciated by those
who do not happen to le among
the "favored few." The Hanalci
wharf, too, at which a big bluff
was recently made, is as far aloiur
as it was a year ago. What we
want is "Action" and less "hotj

is just enough curiousity iu us, to!
find out why. :
The College of Hawaii when es
tablished, was considered all that
was necessary to create efficient
agriculturists in sufficient numbers
to supply our needs. A list of such
"efficient" men from this college
would be interesting. The exami
nation entrance t o this colles,
Ibastd on a state school stand-rdj
is one which prevents many of our
bright country lads from getting a
show which they have every right
to demand. How many of our pa
rents are able, financially, to'send
their boys t o the High School?
Again, by the time a boy who has
been reared among rural surround
ings spends two years or more in
High School, he is weaned away
from his former environments and
adopts a desire for "city life," with
the result that he seeks clerical em
ployment. Lower the standard of
entrance, if necessary, and give our
boys a chance to show the stuff thats
in them instead of supporting a col
lege which may be- and very like-
is doing excellent work in its
line, but that line is certainly not
along lines conducive to the best
interests of our young rurahtes.
Editor Garden Island,
Being an old kamaina I am
naturally interested in the progress
of our islands.
The sugar industry has progress
ed wonderfully during the last
thirty or forty years, both in the
manufacture of sugar and the culti
vation of cane. The improvement
in the machinery for the boiling-
house has great advantages over
that of thirty or more years ago.
Equally the same with agricultural
I saw a mould-board plow at the
Lihue Plantation, built by Mr. H.
Sheldon, the plantation blachsmith,
which took my eye. It is the best
tool of the kind I ever saw, though
it was just completed and had not
yet been tried, I would go my all
on it. It should make the finest
kind of a furrow for cane planting.
The mould-boards are curved so
they will slide through the soil.
Another feature of it is, it has no
wheel in the front of the beam like
the old style plow. Sheldon has a
rod attached to the standard, run
ning under the beam, and about 4
in. from the end of the beam is an
adjustable rod with hand nuts. It is
attached to this pulling rod which
pulls directly from the standard.
By this adjusting rod the plow is
adjusted to plow deep or shallow as
the case may require.- The great dif
ficulty in plowing has been, to be
able to adjust the plow properly, un
less an experienced man is em
ployed to assist in adjusting the
plow. The devioe Sheldon has, is
a simple one. I have been told the
said mould-board or furrow plow,
is doing just as I said it wouid,
(splendid work) runs easy, and
makes a perfect furrow.
Thanking you for the space i n
your up-to-date little paper, I am
Very truly yours.
Los Angeles Papers

The Los Angeles Grand Jury has

years and the interment of the bat
tle ax, would be a wholesome treat
to their readers.

Dock Hands Strike
Tying Up Vessels
The dock hands in London have
gone on a strike, which has assum
ed such proportions as to tie up one
hundred and fifty vessels. Shipping
is suffering greatly, and it is feared
in many quarters that a sympathetic
strike among general trades organi
zations will follow unless an early
settlement of the prevailing condi
tions is made.
