Tom C. Ridgway, who returned with

trip through the Orient, has mnuyjutcr
cstiug tales to tell of the trip and coun

Manila, were in Hongkong leu days and

were ut Shanghai, the Paris of the Hast,
and spent two months in Japan,
Mr. Ridgway was in Japan when the
war fever was at its height. The people
in Japan, he says, were eager to be called
to fight Russia. All elements alike were
imbued with the war spirit, and the min
istry found it necessary to adopt stern
measures to stem the tide of popular feel
ing. The press was nut under u strict
censorship and every diplomilic art was
used by the government to maintain
peace between the people of Japan on the
one li.iud-alid the Russian Bear on the
other. In fact it was only the financial
embarnssuteiit confronting the ministry,
that prevented its giving way to the pop
Mr. Ridgway .says: "Shanghai is the
best place in the Orient. There are 10,
000 Europeans anil Americans In the city
and business Is good. From this city as
a b.ise some of the inoit extensive enter
prises nre being prosecuted.
"Manila," said Tom, "is n beastly
place. It is not Americanized to the
fraction of a degree. Hawaii is a Yankee
hotbed in comparison. I even had to
talk Spanish to the, policemen."

The crater of Kilnuea Is now n dead
hole. The bottom is covered with thous
nuds of tons of rock and pulverized lava.
The dense clouds of smoke and steam
rise no mote from the bottomless throat
A big rock slide from the l'una side Inst
Saturday did the work. For a distance
of 500 feel along the rim nt the surface n '
section six or eight feet thick caved in
nud tumbled down the 1000 foot walls,
with n roar that wns heard three miles
away. The throat of the volcano was
choked with the debris. The depths of
the big crater are now as visible as the
dead bottom of Kilattca.Icl. The lava
house, which was n shelter to visitors on
the Puna side now stands sheer 011 the
edge of the great hole. One comer pro
jects over the chasm nud the edifice Is
ready to crumble.
Almost coincident with the rock slide,
there were seen 011 the summit of Mnuiin
I, on, over the envcrns of Muknwcowco,
three or four funnel shaped columns of
smoke or steam. Th's nt once gave rise
to the theory that, with Kilauca dammed
1 up, the volcanic forces were seeking an
KitiUcl further tin. This theory has not
1 been borne out however, for the reason
I that 110 smoke has been seen oil Matiua

1 other men of the stntiou were up on
I Manna Loa Friday night. They slept nt
, the 9000 foot Hue and in the morning
i saw Uie steam or smoke going up from
I Manna Loa across the valley. They at
tributed the sight to the fact that a heavy
snow had fallen, nud as is usual at such
times, the heated lava in the old craters
caused the columns of vapor to rise.

IIIOW MOS0.UITOKS MIJl.Tll'IiV. I
llensliim Oh os Itcsiill
After numerous cxcritucnts I have
discovered that neither of our two species
of mosquitoes will deposit eggs in fresh
clean water. When, however, wnter has
been exposed long enough to smell, and
be covered by a nasty scum, then it is in the
proper condition to tecieve the mosquito
eggs; ami it Is surprising how soon the
feinule mosquito will discover the pre
ciicc of such wnter, even though it be
no more than enough to fill n blacking 1
So long therefore ns water Is in n sniii-
tnry condition, mosqiiitos will not breed
hi it. The discovery of wrigglers in n
pond or contniner of wnter Is proof posi
tive that it is in an unsanitary condition
nud Is inimical to health from every point
In one of my experiment vessels, some
eight inches ill diameter, sixteen lots of
the day mosquito eggs have been laid in
less than twenty-four hours. These lots
or rafts uvdrngc above 300 eggs each So
this one container held 3200 eggs, practi
cally all of which were 'sure to hatch
within 34 hours after deposition. Within
an nrca of 100 feet in n yard in Hilo, I
have found sixteen containers, pots,
boxes, bottles nud the like, nil having
wrigglers and eggs in varying numbers.
Docs any one wonder that mosquitoes
arc 011 the increase in Hilo?
If every yard in Hilo averages one
such container ami while some premises
contain none others contain many the
daily output of mosquito eggs per home
is somewhere near 3,000, It needs no
imagination to see what Hilo is coming
to unless a remedy is found for this state
of things. The principal remedy is n
littlacarc on the part of householders in
the future and n little lnbor nt the pre
sent time to destroy the now existing
breeding places of the pest nbout the

THE MOSIHJITO F1UHT.
Tho Pest Dors Xot Hreotl In Wnlo
Prof. Hciishaw has explored the Wnlo
lama swamps and holds that the stream
and the pond:i through which it runs are
not mosquito breeding grounds. "This
stream is full of gold fish ami other fish
and the mosquito has 1111 up hill business
iu these waters. The larvae of the mos
quito and the wrigglers arc favorite foods
of the fish. Besides the mosquito avoids
clean or fresh water preferring the stale
and dirty water of stagnant pools. With
in a few feet of the edge of Waiolama
swamp I found a stagnant pool of very
filthy water. This was literally nlive
with mosquito larvae.
"As soon as Mr. Bowman, the sanitary
officer, recovers from the dengue, he will
give special attention to mosquito breed
ing pools. It is believed that the Board
of Health could authorize its sanitary
officers to proceed against the mosquitoes
on regular Hues. That is to say, tackle
It as a sanitary measure, drawing 011 the
regular appropriation, Sir. Bowman is
quite willing to undertake the additional
duties nnd will enrry out the work faith
fully. "I found mi interesting thing in the
Courthouse yard Wednesday," continued
Prof. Hciishnw. "A cuplike crevice near
the base of one of the palm trees had been
filled by the rain and the wnter hnd be
come stngnnut. There wns less thnu a
pint of wnter, but in it wore fully n
thousand embryonic mosquitoes. This
one little cup was sufficient to furnish
mosquitoes enough to drive a neighbor
hood frantic. The fight against mosqui
toes must be n matter of detail."

Letter From One Who Knons the
Editor Trihunk; As nu Amerlc.wi nud
n voter I feel it my duty to let you know
that in my opinion, nud Hint of n good
many others up here in Olaa, you are do
ing what is right when you cnll attention
to Andrews' .past record for inefficiency.
Why, what has he ever done to merit the
confidence of the people? He breaks
into men's houses without legal warrant,
and hangs up some, poor Porto Ricait by
the thumbs so as to force Irom him con
fession for a fancied crime. Why, there
never was such 11 meddlesome official,
whethei to recommend some saloon
license against the wishes of the people
nud for reasons which the public may
guess, or else works his prisoners on pri
vate graft in hauling dirt for his own use,
or using his policemen ns flunkies nud
coachmen for his mules ami horses, us I
saw when I was in Hilo the other day.
Why, only 0 few months ngo it was re
ported that one of his subordinates was
guilty of embezzling license money, and
the man was retired, but I sec lie is back
there again, and working tooth nud toe
nail for Andrews' election, And n Home
Ruler, too, nt that.
This may be btroug talk, but it is the
truth. Of course, unless one is a planta
tion manager his views do not carry much
weight, und you may prefer to ncccpt ns
gospel truth views of McStoekerClay
and the rest of the plantation outfit up
here. But you will find they nre false
alarms, for they cannot deliver the goods,
any more than they did nt the Inst elec
tion. They can go it pretty strong, for
talk is cheap, but see what Peter Lee did
to them last time, and this time it will be
