OF THE MOSQUITO
What a Rural Community Can do Means Employed
Throughout the United States An Experience Near
New York City An Address Given Before the
American Mosquito Extermination Society.
The increase in the number of
mosquitos in nnd nbotit Hilo during
the summer months, brings to mind
some of the methods employed
thtoughout the United States for
the extermination of this pest. It
is claimed that the first inosqttitos
were landed on Maui and wee
brought there by a sailing vessi I,
somewhere hack about thirty years
ago. Since then the little ringed
legged pest has propagated to such
an extent that there is now hardly
a place in the islands that is free
from them. For years the residents
ot Olaa enjoyed the privilege of
sleeping without nets, while now
the little tormentor has even en
croached upon the sacred precincts
of Madam Pele's chief hostelry.
Men of millions, men versed in
the scientific lore of the world, men
of machinery, railroad presidents,
doctors atid students of natural
history, have banded themselves
into one of the most formidable
.organizations known in the country
under the name of The American
Mosquito Extermination Society.
Its principal field of action is in
and about the City of New York
and in the State of New Jersey,
which has become world famous
for its prevalence of mosquitos.
Such men as President Saccatt of
tlie Pennsylvania Railroad, and
President Baldwin of the Long
Island Railroad, are enthusiastic
During one of their sessions an
interesting experiment was given.
Into a glass tank of captive
"wrigglers," as the young mos
quitoes are termed, a handful of
voracious little fishes were thrown.
There was a panic in the tank, and
in almost less time than it takes to
relate the incident the fishes were experience gained on this area that
prowling about the empty waters in , the true remedy lay in dyking the
search of other prey. One gold fish mouth of New Creek just above
is said to have gobbled up not fewer the beach line, and with flood
than ninety-two half-grown mos- gates lower the water level in the
quitos. Sticklebats, tomminows and marshes behind the beach to prac
tiny, glistening little sunfish had a tically the level of mean low tide,
part in the slaughter. Such dykes are, of course, common

I The conditions of this locality
favor the breeding of mosquitos;
the salt and brackish water varie

the lower lands approaching the
beach, while many fresh water
varieties breed in the highland
In the spring of 1898, a purse
was raised among the principal
residents and an oil wagon with
pumps aim nose .secured, wen
were trained to handle the oil
spraying outfit, while others were
' " '
employed to cut drains from the
hilltop ponds. The wot k was pro
secuted diligently during all of one
season and some 25 or more ponds
were treated with oil about once a
!' V 4Sf'
month. The ponds were finally
The oil treatment was successful
in killing the mosquito larvae, but
the prnctical limitation was found
there, as elsewhere, in getting the
oil onto some of the ponds, where
the mechanical operation was im
peded by boggy shores, bushes,
weeds, and undergrowth, while in
other cases it was difficult to keep
the oil on the surface of exposed
ponds where it could be blown
ashore by winds.
Altogether, the results on the
higher levels, both of oil treatment
and drainage, were eminently suc
cessful. In certain regions, which
were so infested with mosquitos
that oue could scarcely walk
through them, the pest was so
completely removed that scarcely a
mosquito could be found. The oil
was a temporary expedient, the
drainage a permanent one.
The great difficulty, however,
was found in the marsh areas
bordering New Creek behind the
beaches. There the areas were too
large for the proper application of
oil, and though it was industriously
applied the frequent tides carried it
away. There were also large areas
which could not be reached by any
appliances at hand.
The prevailing winds would blow
a sufficient supply of mosquitos
from these marshy areas to the
near-by residence districts to re
duce the apparent value of the
successful work done on the high
lauds. During the remainder of
the season in question, the only
mosquitos found in abundance were
those known to breed in brackish

On the highest point of the
westernmost ledge of the Mount
Tnmalpais range there are being
erected two wooden towers, each
300 feet high and 100 feet apart.
Between these two toners over
200,000 pounds of copper wire are
to he hung, from which millions of
volts of electricity can he discharged
into the atmosphere. When com
pleted it will be the most powerful
wireless station in the United States
and is to he utilized by the wireless
company as their receiving station
for all transpacific messages. On a
high hill near Diamond Head, in
Honolulu, the company has secured
a site for their Honolulu station.
Stations will also be built at Guam
and probably at Manila.
Messages will be sent to Hono
lulu within four mouths. Arrange
ments are now being made with the
managers of the Spreckels liners
running between Honolulu and
San Francisco to install a wireless
apparatus on their boats, and all
the necessary experimental work
previous to the installation of the
regular commercial service will be
done in connection with the re
ceivers ou the liners.
A receiving tower is now in pro
cess of construction and will he
erected on one of the lofty office
buildings in San Francisco shortly.
The Merchants' Exchange Build
ing will probably be the site of the
city tower. With the completion
of the Mount Tnmalpais station
and the local tower a commercial
service will be inaugurated between
San Francisco and the Nevada gold
