IN PHY VISIT
Joquin Balmori, a member of the
Philippine Assembly leader of the
progressive party, and chairman of
committee on Labor and Immigra
tion, accompanied b y assistant
IJ rector W. H. Babbith of the
Planters Association spent the bet
ter part of last week in looking in
to conditions concering the Filipino
plantation labor. A third party in
the person of Mr. M. B. Carbonoll
accompanied them in the capacity
of secretary and interpreter.
Mr. Balmori spoke in the highest
praise o f conditions as he found
them and was very desirous of see
ing more of his countrymen equal
ly as well situated.
Mr. Balmori, as assemblyman,
occupies the same relation to the
pioneers of his government as do
our representatives,' and the fact
that he is the leader of the progres
sive party as well as the chairman
of the Labor and Immigration com
mittee is sufficient evidence of his
importance and consequently Ins
influence. Kauai feels honored by
the first visit of such a distinguish
ed person from her sister island and
looks forward with undisguised
pleaseure to his possible return.
Mr. Carbonell is a graduata of the
Illinois State Nnrm.il at Dekalb,
having Ijeen one of the Student
whom his government selected to
be sent to a state educational insti
tution shortely after the Spanish
ar. He is a thorough linguist and
m every way a brilliant scholar.

"Cow" Police Officer
To Patrol Kapaa Land
(Special to the Garden Island)
Kapaa, April 30. MissBernice
Hundley, agent for .government
lands, has been authorized to ap
point a policeman whose duty will
be to impound evety cow or horse
found browsing on government
This will be . welcome news to
various property owners here who
try to beautify their property
by planting trees only to have them
eaten down by cattle and horse
which have (according to law) no
business on the domain.
Should Plant Trees
The time has come when we
should adorn our highways with
trees. The old objection that trees
prevented the mud roads from
drying up has been removed since
the roads have been macadamized.
The roadside tree not only fur
nishes grateful shade during the
summer months, but at all times it
modifies the intensity of the wind,
protecting the traveler and the ad
joining crops, and also i n no
small way protecting the adjoin
ing fields from the drying action
of the wind. It attracts and
affords a shelter for birds, the
farmer's friends. Since timber is
getting scarce the value of the
tree itself will almost pay for its
growing. Then, too, trees add
much to the appearance of a farm
and owners who have a nice row
of trees along the road would not
hne them removed for any price.
The beauty or appearance of the
farm home and environment should
not be neglected, and it is always
worth more than it coits unless
carried to extremes. The real es
state dealer will tell you that the
appearance of a farm adds much tq
With our industrial advance
ment we should not neglect the
beauty o f highways. Beautiful
highways not only give pleasure
to the eye, but elevate the tide of
life, while the absence of beauty
has a depressing influence.
The tree selected for planting
should be 4-6 feut long, with a
good root system. It is a mistake
to plant large trees and to cut off
the top when planting. After the
tree is well planted it should be
protected by some kind of a guard.
A book on the selection and plant
ing of roadside trees may be ob
tained fiee by writing to the For
