Alameda, Nov. 16. Professor
1 Albert Koebele, the noted entotnol-
I ogist, whose home is in this city,
recently returned from Ohio, where
he discovered a parasite, which, it
is belie wd. will prove very useful
in destioying insect pests which
prey upon the sugar cane in the
islands. The Professor is in the
employ of the Government on the
Hawaiian Islands, where he has
accomplished much in a few years
in ridding the plantations of nox
ious insects. He came to this
country from Honolulu some time
ago with the conviction that tie
would find some parasite which
would distroy the insects attacking
the sugar cane, and which have
been causing thousands of dollars
loss every year. He believes he
has found a remedy for the evil in
the tiny parasites from Ohio, and
has shipped 2000 to Honolulu where
they are now being bred for distri
bution. They have a fatal effect on the
kind of bug which is a plague on
the plantations, and it is believed
that in a short time their introduc
tion into the islands will prove effi
cacious. It was Professor Koebele
who introduced into this State from
Austialia the ladybug, known to
science as vidalia cardiualis, which
fed 011 the cottony cushion scale
and was the means of saving for
tunes in the orange-growing dis
tricts of California.

"Fifty-nine," the game that for
months past has been such a boon
to the winter resorts, promises to
take the place of "grand" this
summer. "Fifty-nine" may be
played by from two to six persons,
but four, playing pat triers, make
the best game. The entire fifty-two
cards are used, but only six are
dealt at a time. The value ol the
cards is as follows: Ace, 1; king,
261 jack, 1; ten, 1; nine, 9; five, 5;
tray, 15; deuce, 1 the sum of
which is 59. The player to the
right of the dealer has the first bid,
and, according to his hand, he may
wager all the way from 1 to 59.
He who makes the highest bid
names the trump, and, discarding
all his cards but trumps, calls for
whatever number fills out the hands
to six. The other players do the
same. He who makes it leads, and
he must lead trumps. Trumping
in is forbidden until a suit is ex
hausted. Gains are counted ac
cording to the value of the cards in
each player's tricks when a hand is
played out. In case of a "euchre"
the loser subtracts from his score
whatever ,he bet; the winners add
to their score whatever they have
made. Two hundred or more is
the game. Unlike most card games,
fifty-nine does not come from the
west. Its origin, indeed, is wrapped
in mystery. Hut it is a first class
game, and it is undoubtedly in for
a long lease of popularity. The
oftener you play it the better you
like it. There's more in it than
greets the ear. New York Sun.

Honolulu, Nov. 27. The matter
of the Hoard of Health presidency
still hangs iu the balance, nor is it
believed that Governor Carter will
make any appointment until the
question has been considered by
the Central Committee of the Re
The whole question rests on
whether there shall be a medical or
a purely business man at the head
of this most important department
of the government, and that is
probably what the committee will
have to give the greatest attention.
If it is to be a medical man, it is
very certain that Dr. C. B. Cooper
will be reappointed to the office
since his regime has been a most
successful one. If it is to be a bus
iness man, K. C. Winston, member
of the Hoard of Health and of the
Central Committee of the Republi
can party, is looked upon most
favorably. In fact, he is the only
one so far who has been announced
as a candidate.
Wants 0. K. of Congress.
Honolulu, Nov. 27. F. M.
Hatch, who left iu the China yes
terday, goes to Washington to se
cure the passage of the County law
as an act of Congress. The matter
was discussed at a recent confer
ence called by Governor Carter.
United States District Attorney
Breckons was asked to go, but the
great volume of work now iu his
hands prevented him from accept
ing. The object is to settle for all time
the continuous possibility of an at
tack on the County Act as passed
by the last legislature. There has
been much talk of late on the part
of enemies of the County Act of
having the law brought into the
courts. Once passed by Congress,
there will be no more threats of this
nature and county government will
be assured of stability. If Mr.
Hatch's mission is successful the
Hoard of Territorial Institutions
will be revived.
Insurgents In llnytl.
Cape Haytien, Nov. 25. The
city of San Domingo has surrend

surgents. President Gil and his
ministers have taken refuge on a
The rebels under the leadership
of Ex-President Jimiuez have been
bombarding the city of San Do
mingo for over a month. During
that time German marines have
been lauded iu the town and Presi
dent Wos Gil has lived most of the
time iu the residence of the German
Minister. The rebels recently stated
that they would refuse, iu case of
their success, to meet the claims of
the United States against San Do
mingo so interesting results may
follow their capture of the city and
the ousting of the Wos Gil govern
ment. Attack 011 Philippine Slavery.
Washington, Nov. 28. Repre
sentative Patterson has introduced
a bill iu the House to abolish slav
ery in the Philippines and abrogate
the Bates treaty with, the Sultan of
Sulu permitting slavery and polyg
amy. In 1899 while Governor of the
districts of Mindanao and Jolo,
General John C. Bates made n
treaty with the Sultan of Sulu
which called forth much criticism
because it recognized the existing
institutions of slavery and polyg
amy. This treaty is yet in force,
as the military authorities have con
sidered it wise to permit conditions
to remain as they were previously
rather than stir up more trouble
among the fierce Moro tribes.
Philadelphia, Nov. 28. The
Circuit Court today handed down n
decision sustaining the receivership
ot the United States Shipbuilding
Co., known as the Ship Trust.
Tokio, Nov. 28. Kx-Minister
Ossi gave out a statement today in
which he vigorously protests against
the increase of Russian forces iu
the Far East. Ossi believes that
Japan should not hesitate to go to
war unless the transportation of
Russian troops is stopped. Ossi
was formerly Minister of Commerce.
