than any other method. In future,
he said, he would take a deep and
personal interest in the Hawaiian
Islands. Having acquainted him
self with details by personal obser
vation, he expressed himself as be

follows: "Sheriff Baldwin, Wai

County Act Void, assume office and
duties immediately. Old commis

diately proceeded to the Sheriff's
office and presented Sheriff White

Honolulu, Jan. 18. Ralph S.
Hosmcr, the new Superintendent
of Forestry, who arrived on the
Siberia last week, takes active
charge of forestry matters in Ha
waii today, when he will leave for
an inspection of the Kohala and
Hamakua districts. Since his ar
rival Mr. Hosmcr has been in con
ference with various members of
the Board of Forestry and Agricul
ture over forestry matters, but he
does not intend to outline his policy
until after a general inspection tour,
although it will follow out on gen
eral lines that suggested by Forester
'W. H. Hall on his recent trip to
"I will leave in the Kinau to
morrow with A. W. Carter of the
Board of Agriculture and Forestry
for an inspection of the Kohala and
Hamakua forests," said Mr. Hos
mcr yesterday. The tour will
probably take from two to three
weeks and I shall make my bead
quarters at Waimea and other
ranches in the two districts.
"The forest plan in that portion
of the Island is perhaps the most
pressing ot any in the group. I
shall get in touch with conditions
there first and after ray return,
about the first of the month, will
be occupied in getting the organiz
ation of the forestry division per
fected. As soon as I can, it is my
intention to mrkc trips to all the
islands and to study conditions on
the ground, and then draw up a
general policy for the forest admin
istration of the Territory.
