The nrticle appearing recetttly in the
TkiiuJ.nk gixing mi account of Ilrother
Matthias' method of killing the Jipiuese
beetle was not without its beneficent re
sults. Ilrother Matthias regularly re
ceives requests from parties front xarious
parts of the islands nskiug for samplis of
the fungus with xvhich to inoculate the
insect pest. To all of these he has courte-
ously replied, forwarding by mail a num
ber of beetles bearing the disease germs,
xvhich luxe been found sufiicient to con
tinue the endless chain of extermination.
On the last mail the Tkihunh receixed a
communication from Mrs. II. 1). Ilaldwin,
wife of Manager Ilaldwin ofMnkaweli
Plantation, Kauai, stating that the beetles
were xery bid at Makaweli, making it
impossible to raise exen cannns or Indian
shot, geraniums and roses. In response
to her request a number of the inoculated
bugs wereobtaiued from Chas. Hitchcock,
who is a hot 1nic.1l enthusiast, and for
warded to Mrs. Ilaldwin. Hither o,f the
gentlemen refeneil to or the Tkiiiu.nu
will be pleased to render such assistance

the Hoard ol Trade rooms:
Whereas: The entire comiir.ittUv has
lioaid with profound sorrow and indigna
tion of the wanton murder of Mr. S. F,d

an evidence of the eternal unrf-ir.. !..
tween depraxity and lawlessness, on one
side, and decency and order 011 the other;
Whereas, We recognize and ncknowl-
edge the sterling qualities of the late Mr.
U.1111011; his ability and inteirritv ns a
business man, his dexotion as a son. hus
band and father, and his worth as a citi
7eu, mid that in his whole life he was mi
example of good and true manhood :
therefore be it
Resolxed by the Hoard ofTrade of Hilo
that we protest against the further tole
rance in Hawaii of a clnss of shiftless mid
xtcious people, who, refusing to work,
prey upon the community nnd mike life
and propertx insecuie; and we recom
mend more strictness anil sexerity on the
part of the authorities in dealing with
Resolxed that the Iloird of Trade of
Hilo extend to the stricken family, our
heartfelt sjinpathy and condolence; ami
