easily see that this is a more serious
affair than the Panama scandal.
No wonder need be expressed at
the vote of censure resolved by the
Diet almost unanimously. Amid
these disturbances, there came a
tough problem the Manchuriau
meut is to be started at once upon
the Louisson place in Hamakua,
Hawaii, which, from tests so far
made, is the laud best suited for the
cultivation of tobacco in the islands.
It is proposed to cultivate wrap
per tobacco under cover at the
Louisson plantation. . Mr. Smith
was present at the meeting and
stated that he had been carrying on
experiments with tobacco at the
experiment station on I'unchbowl
under cloth, with the result that hei
had obtained from fifty to sixty
pounds of apparently high grade
tobacco. This had been forwarded
to Washington for analysis, but no
report had been received as yet.
At the Connecticut experiment,
station, Mr. Smith stated, on one
acre of ground under cheese cloth
cover there had been raised 1 ,400
pounds of commercial tobacco
which sold for ?i.ao per pound.
Mr. Smith had also caused experi
ments to be made of the various
soils of the islands, and with the I
result that he had found the soil at '
the Louisson place to be the best
adapted for tobacco culture of any
in the islands. Mr. Louisson has '
promised to allow the free use of '
the land for the purpose of experi
ments for three years, and longer if
desired. Mr. Smith stated that the
expenditure of $1,200 asked for
would cover the cost of 7,000 yards
of specially prepared cheese cloth
and the frame work on which to
erect it, also material, tools and
labor necessary for the experiment.
The experiment is to be con
ducted by L. K. Conter of the
United States Experiment Station
who has been in charge, and who
had made a special study of the
raising and curing of tobacco at the
station. Mr. Smith stated also that j
an analysis had been made of the
soil iu Porto Rico by the United I
States Agricultural Department. '
On the strength of this a New York
firm had already clothed iu and was
cultivating 115 acres of laud there (

that we could do as well here with 1
