feet, where the growth was thickest, as
an experiment, to show how much a
crop was capable of producing, cut and

believe that the average crop will go
over live tons per acre, which I consider

the course of the next two years will
have malty thousands of the plants to

in the gardens of Honolulu for many
years as an ornament With 'mt little
knowledge of its value. The cultivation
should be extended us much us possible,
and any person having a patch of San

be doing a public benefit by setting out

ently can. To propagate the plant the
leaves art, cut into ections about four
inches long and Inserted into boxes of
earth to the depth of two inches. The
soil must be moderately dry, as too
much moisture will cause the leaves to
rot. The boxes must be placed ill a
moderately sbsly place, and in a few

run the cable themselves Instead of sub

the line you will get first is an Ameri

EDITOR Stak: In your issue of the
14th instant, in an editorial article en
titled "Blount's Report," you report me
as having given Mr. Blount important
evidence (by inference from your arti
cle) verifying what you style Col. V. V.
Ashford's "scathing expose." Permit
me to state now, without betraying any
confidence which Mr. Hlount reposed in
me, to publicly deny that anything I
said corroborated the obscene subject
matter of that alleged Statement, and
further to state us publicly and openly
as I can, that I believe the latter to hp a
tissue of falsehood so far as you have
referred to it. A- R'WA.

The question of one falsehood Mr. !

As to the one attributed to the Stak, i
Mr. Hosa has been made aware that this

recently come lo the notice of the St.Mi
111 which the Hoard of Health was vic
timised and the public made to pay for
supplies v. hictl Wei never received.
During several years previous to May,
ISM, il had heen theOUStomof the Hoard
of Health, instead ol' asking for teiideri
for supplies, to distribute the orders for
them among the different linns. Em
instance, in the matter of furnishing
feed for Ihe team employed by tin

H. Reynolds, the then agent of the
Board, to distribute the Hoard's patron
age among the Minis engaged in sup
plying fei d lor Ihree months at a time,
until all had had their turn, Anion)
the dealers in this commodity at thai
time was one John F. Colburii, who, foi
reasons best known to the Hoard and
Mr. Reynolds, was studiously ignored in
the distribution "f patronage, probably
for good and suDicient reasons. Any
how, Mr. Oolburn got no patronage

taken to Ihe barn occupied as a stable jgarily brief reports furnished, at about
for the Health Office team. When the $4000, which is fully covered by ii.stir-
lirst lot of feed was delivered nt the
barn it was weighed by Mr. Reynolds in
tb presence of L. E. La Pierre and a
native named Kuili. The first item In
the bill was five bales of hay. The
actual weight of the five bales was
1081 pounds, but Mr. Colburn had
charged in his bill 1111!") pounds, or more
than 10(1 pounds per bale over the cor
rect weight. Five bags of bran were
next put on the scales and weighed.
The result showed 880 pounds, but
Mr. Oolbttrn's bill called for 860 pounds.
Three bags of oats weigbod (NM pounds,
but were charged for ut 1100 pounds.
Before using the scales Mr. Reynolds
had taken the precaution to have them
examined and tested by the Marshal.
They were ftMttld to be correct.
Mr. Reynolds communicated the re
sult of the weighing to Mr. Dayton, the
president of the board, mid usUed lijin
to personally attend the weighing of
the next bill from Colburn. This be
consented to do, A direct request was
made to Colburn on this occusion to
send his bill with the feed, in order
t tut t there might be no mistake. This
was done. At this weighing David
Dayton. V. Ii. Reynolds. L. L. I.uPierre
and Kuili were present. Six bales ol
hay were first put on the scales. They
tipped the beam at 1804 pounds, but
Mr. Colburii had charged for H8o
pounds. Five bags of bran, which j
weighed according to the bill 880 pounds, I
actually weighed only 814. and two bugs
of oats charged at 880 pounds weighed
only 'Mil. The prices have not been
mentioned as they cut. no figure iri the
matter and were not disputed, although
they vera high, a was usual for any-1
thing furnished the government,
When the bills oamS in t., be audited
and allowed Mr. Reynolds refused to
approve them on the ground that the
weights were false, and continued to do
so until the time of his resignation in
After that time and
while Mr. Dayton was acting not only
as President of the Hoard but also as its
agent in Mr. Reynold's place, the latter
approved the bills and they were paid.
The above is a simple statement of
facts which can be proven at any time.
They are known to ninny now.

Judge Cooper this afternoon bled lu
opinion on Ihe plea in bar raised by
counsel in the lour eutbesslemenl
charges against Henry P The Court
says: After n review of the evidence
I am or the opinion that it would sup
port but ii simple charge of embeasle
ment from the Hawaiian Government,
and the records show that the defend
ant w ns aoquttted on thai charge In a
court of eon, pen ul, juris. lictii n. As lo
the indictment charging the cnibez.b
inent of money from V. T. Ashford. I
do not see how 1 can entertain the plea,
us the evidence tends to show tluil this
was a separate transaction, and further,
the parties are not the same as in the
Indictment under which the defendant
WB8 acquitted, 1 am, therefore, of the
opinion that the plea of the defendant
is good so funis the three indictments
charging him with embezzlement of
money belonging to the Hawaiian Gov-
eminent, and to those Indictments the
plea is sustained, hut as lo the indict
ment charging him with the embesale
ment of money from v. v. Ashford the
plea is overruled.
A Loyal American.
Minister Willis made some Inquiries
of a caller the other evening about the
recent history of Hawaii, and finally
said: "Iain here to carry out the policy
of my Government, and I can say to you
that no more loyal American could
found for the purpose."
