Honolulu, July 28. A.. II. Tur
ner, formerly manager of the Ha
waiian Pibre Co., will leave on the
Aorangi tomorrow for n two or
1 three month's trip to Mexico and
, the Bahamas for a study of the sisal
industry. Upon his return Mr.
Turner will again go into the culti
vation of the fibre and with the ex
perience gained in the places where
'sisal has been grown for many
years, he expects to make the in
tdustry even more of a success than
! attended his efforts on the planta-
tion at Sisal, and which he con
sidcrs still is in an experimental
"The knowledge of the sisal in
dustry is rather limited in Hawaii,"
said Mr. Turner yesterday. "What
knowledge I have I gained in the
five years I was in charge of the
Hawaiian Fibre Co. plantation
which I started, aided by local cap
ital. While sisal growing was a
success here still I consider that so
far it has only been in the experi
mental stage. My object in visiting
the Bahamas and Mexico is to
study the details in a" country where
the cultivation has been long a suc
cess. While it has been successful
here, in the future Hawaii is going
to meet competition from other
countries, and in order to do this
more economical methods of culti
vation must be introduced.
"I intend to spend enough time
itr the fibre districts to study all
phases of the industry. Sisal must
be grown on a larger scale in these
islands in order to be really a suc
cess and I intend to gain the
knowledge which will be required
once the capabilities of the Terri
tory in this direction are fully
"I believe fully in the sisal busi
ness here and I expect to return
after a study of the industry in
other countries. Some day this in
formation I will get may save the
sisal industry of Hawaii for it
doesn't take long to discourage an
industry ot this kind. Though I
have been in the business here five
yenis, It was always experimental
and now I intend to learn some
thing definite. I might also get
some ideas of more economical ma
chinery. "New York is the centre of the
fibre industry and I intend to look
into the machinery for cleaning the
fibre there. I am also going to
look into the transportation ques
tion. It has been claimed that the
difference in freights is in favor of
other countries, and I want to find
out why this is so.
"As to labor I believe the Japa
nese we have here are better than
the Southern negroes of other count
ries. At least they do more work
my own experience proves that.
"I am going to look into the
question of making rope here right
from the fibre. That would save
something in transportation, for the
bulk of the rope is much less than
of simply the cleaned fibre. The
time will come when there will be
a general cordage factory in the
islands for the manufacture of all
sisal grown here. There is a good
market for the rope right here and
then the cost of manufacture should
not be so great, now that oil can be
delivered in Honolulu at almost the
same price as in California. There
is no reason why we shouldn't sell
our home manufactured rope on the
Scientist Dlscovcrst 1'nnisltc
Washington, D. C, July 12. Dr.
Charles Wardeli Stiles of the Pub
lic Health and Marine Hospital
Service, the discoverer of the para
site Uncinaria Americana, generally
known as the bookworm, or "germ
of laziness," and who in his address
last December before the Sanitary
Conference of American Republics,
told of the effects of the ravages of
the bookworm disease upon the so
cial, industrial and economic condi
tions in the Southern States, has
made another discovery in the para
site world. It is considered by
Government scientists as of the
greatest importance and its effects
may be far-reaching.
Dr. Stiles' new achievement is
the discovery and isolation of what
he has named the Agamomcrmis
culicis, otherwise known as "the
mosquito destroyer," a parasite
which kills millions of mosquitoes
each year, and which, it is believed,
under artificial preparation, will
prove far superior to any means
now known for ridding infested
communities of these pests.
Scientists in Washington who
have been made acquainted with
the discovery say its importance
cannot be overestimated, and that
the mosquito is doomed to extermi
nation. May Ho N'nvnl District.
Honolulu, July 23. News has
been received at the Naval Station
to the effect that Lieutenant Com
mander A. P. Niblack has been or
dered to the local Naval Station on
shore duty. He is expected to ar
rive here in the Siberia, August 14.
On his arrival here, Lieutenant
Commander Niblack will succeed
Captain Rodman in the command
of the Naval Station. Captain
Rodman will still retain the com
mand of the Iroquois. Lieutenant
Commander Niblack will be in
command of the Station until Ad
miral Ferry arrives.
Admiral Ferry is expected.. to ar
rive in September or October, when
the command of the whole station
will bo turned over to him. This,
seems to indicate that it is within
the range of possibilities that the
Naval Station may be turned into a
Naval District, which will vastly
increase its importance

taut strategic point and

Three days were consumed in the
work on the different branches and
then the young man took his physi

Nothing now remains to be done.

Nciv Zealand Tourists.
Honolulu, July 22. New Zea
land papers give glowing accounts
of the great .tourist traffic that is
expected there during the next
year. They state that the Agent
General of the country in Loudon
has received enquiries from thous
ands of wealthy Britishers who will
make the round-the-world tour
from England, going direct to New
Zealand from English ports and re
turning home by way of the Untted
States and Canada. The govern
ment is making special preparations
to handle the traffic in New Zealand
over the railways and is making
many improvements at the hot
springs and tourist objective points
in New Zealand. As these tourists
will probably pass through Hono
lulu in great numbers it is likely
that many of them can be induced
to make short stays in Hawaii
while euroute home.

Confessions of Applicants.
Among the regular questions to
be answered by applicants lor ad
mission to the examinations in the
city of New York is the following:
"Do you use intoxicating bever
ages, and if so, to what extent?"
It was a Yankee who replied, "No,
but I take a drink," and it was a
Swede who carefully estimated the
extent of his indulgence at "one
glass of beer in ten days." The
birthplaceof a man who wrote that
he did use intoxicating beverages
"but not as an occupation" is ti'f
recorded, and the nationality of the '3
mournful applicant who also drank,
"but not to success," may well be
a matter of doubt. One applicant
of simple vocabulary was content to
respond, "yes mild," while an
other added the assurance that he
drank in a "gentlemanly way."
Still another sought to remove all
prejudice from the minds of the ex
aminers by stating that he never
used any "beverages" at all, and
one of his companions admitted
using them, though "not effec
tively." The commonest answer to the
question consists either of the single
word "moderately" or of some
equivalent phrase, which, on the
whole, seems to the examiners the
most suitable response. Perhaps
the honest soul who reported him
self "almost temperate" was a fair
representative. Sometimes by a
slip the applicant will write the re
verse of what he obviously intended,
as when recently one said "immod
eration," and another replied "Yes,
to no extent." McClure's Magazine.
