3lc l'i-nOMK To Do J'or tho
Ralph S. Hosmer, who is accom
panying Governor Carter mid Sec
retary Atkinson in their tour of
this Island, came to the Territory
but a short time ago mid is here to
take charge of one of the most im
portant bureaus created since an
nexation. He is superintendent of
the Forestry under the Board of
Forestry and Agriculture. Mr.
Hosmer came to Hawaii from Wash- j
ington D. C. He has been with
the U. S. Department of Agricul-
ture for seven years, five of which 1
were devoted to work in the bureau
of Forestry. Mr. Hosmer wasi
sent to the Islands upon the rccom-1
mendation of Gifford Piuchot and j
is now a Territorial official still
maintaining close connection with '
the Department at Washington. I
The first duty confronting Mr. I
nosraer 111 me isianils was to ac
quaint himself with the conditions
in various districts by personal in
vestigation. His original plan was
to go to Kohala where the situa
tion is most acute, but this plan
was changed when Governor Car
ter invited him to join the present
Island tour. He is now making a
general survey of the problems and
early in'thc spring will return to
take the matter up in detail in the
Speaking to a Tridunk repre
sentative Mr. Hosmer said: "I am
not prepared to say that forests in
crease rainfall, but we do know
that forests conserve the moisture
in the ground. What we call a
"forest floor" is the agency that
does the work. This is the accuma-
lotion of years from falling leaves, j
ferns and shrubbery making a lay- j
cr of vegetable mould' which will
not form without the protection of
the larger forest growth. This
floor absorbs the rainfall and gives
it out gradually through springs
and rivulets, when it would other
wise pass from the slopes in dam
aging torrents. This is the largest
benefit to be derived from the con
servation of the forests.
''The Uoaid o! Koioiry p.opo.sen
to establisn n numoer ot reserves. ,
Each of these will be surrounded '
by different conditions and will re-'
ceive separate and different treat-1
raent. It is not the intention of!
the Board to establish these
serves to the exclusion or detri
ment of other industries. It is pro
posed to locate these reserves where
they will do the greatest good to
the greatest number. I have found
so far, a wide awake and favorable
sentiment among the cattle men,
coffee men and sugar men, and it I
is the cooperation of these men that 1
we seek. The main' question isi
that of fixing the lines. There
will be some conflict of the differ-!
ent interests in fixing these lines. ,
fw first l'mnnrlnnt ivnrlr will hi in
".'. .-; ;-- -
study eacu aisinct anu wtiatare n
the proper limits, and to this end I
wish to get in close touch with the
men interested. There will have
to be a give and take spirit shown
by all sides. I have every reason
to believe that all will come togeth
er 011 Hues of mutual agreement
and no hardship result to anyone in
the end. We shall not foster any
class at the expense of others, but
will seek to attain results best for
the community in the long run."

Hon to Stop a Cough.
A simple but effective remedy
the following: 1
Breathing through the nostrils, I
inhale a full breath as slowly as is
possible without causing fatigue.
Expel the breath in the same manner
and repeat the operation ten times.
This will stop the coughing for1
about a quarter of an hour. Take
a dose of Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy during this lull and the
medicine will have a better oppor
tunity to act and will speedily effect '
a complete euro. It always cures
and cures quickly. The Ililo Drug
Store sells it. 1
