dog-goned thing about land laws,
but when it comes to appointing
Territorial officials he delivers the

Washington is satisfied with the
manner in which the Territorial ex
ecutive has administered the affairs
of the Territory. Aside from the
sorry land laws for which he is said
to be chiefly, responsible and the
charges that he is too closely allied
with the corporation interests,
Governor Frear has conducted
the affairs of the government in a
highly satisfactory manner. He is
one of the most capable men in the
Territory and Taft evidently could
not have done better than to have
An ingenious investigator has
been looking into the cost of books
by the word, which is a sensible
point of view. A really small book
may be very heavy, or very big
and so may seem to be worth a
considerable price, thereby deceiv
ing the unwary reader. The said
ingenious investigator finds that
fiction is the cheapest of all book
fodder on the market viz: 12 cents
per thousand words. Religion runs
to 26 cents in spite of the tracts
that are given away. Travel, is 3
cents largely on account of illus
tration. Poetry is the most expen
sive, ranging from 4 to 15 cents, a
figure which is seldom justified by

To Fittingly Ob
serve Arbor Day
To the Teacher and Pupils,
Public Schools of Hawaii.
As the tree planting season is
approaching, this Department
wishes to call to the attention of
teachers and pupils the importance
of tree planting on school grounds.
Not only are well developed trees
great benefit for shade and orna
mental purposes, but their plant-
ng and culture affords one of the
best opportunities for lessons on
the care and development of
plants. It is hoped that you will
bear in mind that it is far better to
plant but a very few trees and
take proper care of them than it is
to make a display of planting
many trees and then become care-
ess and neglect them.
The Department of Agriculture
and Forestry will furnish the trees
free of charge and the Department
of Public Instruction will pay
reight charges. It is hoped that
the teachers and pupils will take
interest in Arbor Day planting
and that they will order, plant and
care for such trees as will be best
suited for their school premises.
Principals of schools on Hawaii
in the Puna District and from
Olaa to Laupahoehoe should apply
directly to Brother Matthias Ne
well, Hilo, Hawaii, for their trees.
Those o n the leward side of
Kauai, from Manato Koloa, should
apply to Mr. Walter McBryde,
Homestead, Kauai, and applica
tions from all ether schools should
be addressed to Division of For
estry. Board of Agriculture and
Forestry, Box 331, Honolulu, T. II.
The Governor has proclaimed
Friday, November 8th, as Arbor
Day and we trust that all schools
will observe the day appropriately.
Enclosed herewith is a circular
prepared by the Division of For
estry of this Territory, which we
trust you will read and follow
carefully in your tree planting
work. The list of trees that can
be furnished by the Division of
Forestry, from which you may
select in ordering, is to be found
on pages 2 and 3 of the circular.
Very truly yours,
