The Honolulu Bulletin of Jau
uary 29th says:
"Governor Carter is still very
seriously ill, according to his at
tending physician, Dr. Judd, al
though it is at present not consid
ered that there is any particular
"Shortly after 8 o'clock last even
ing the temperature of the patient
registered 103J4. At 4 o'clock
this morning it was down to 101.
At 8:30 o'clock this morning the
Governor's temperature was 102.
"Dr. Judd was with the Gover
nor all last night, indeed he has at
tended him all night long for the
last four nights.
"When seen by a Bulletin re
porter at 1 1 o'clock this morning
Dr. Judd had the following to say:
" 'It is still impossible to make
any definite diagnosis of the Gov
ernor's condition. His tempera
ture was as high as 103 Saturday
evening about 8 o'clock. I staid
with him all night and at 4 o'clock
this morning the fever had gone
down to iox. When I saw- him
'last, at 8:30 o'clock this morning,
the temperature had risen again to
" 'The condition of a patient
whose temperature registers as high
as 102 for several days is naturally
serious, but I would not say at this
time that the indications arc those
of particular danger.
" 'The Governor is in a condi
tion oi collapse and indifference, as
is to be expected under the circum
stances. He is not worrying, nor
is he being worried about anything.
Mrs. Carter and the two nurses and
myself are the only persons ad
mitted to his room. We keep all
matters of business away from him
" 'At no time during his illness
has the Governor said anything
about resigning his office. Nor
does he talk about the circuit court
judgeship matter or anything else
of a public nature.
" 'Yes, I know there are rumors,
but there is no truth in the story
that the Governor is considering
resigning. He is too sick to bother
about such things. The matter of
an extended trip, when he is well
enough, is too far off to be consid
ered at this time. ,
" 'There is no indication of brain
fever or any such pomplication'in
the Governor's case.
"'An examination of the blood
is being made for possibly typhoid
fever though I think it unlikely
that the Governor is suffering from
that disease;, the symptoms are
more like those of severe case of the
"'It may be impossible for
several days to say just what is
troubling the Governor.' "
According to the Advertiser of
the 30th: -
"Symptoms indicating typhoid
persist in the case of Governor
Carter, and there are other symp
toms complicating the case of, a
somewhat mysterious nature, never
theless the Governor had a good

temperature baa fallen to 99 4-10

fever is the most favorable feature
that has yet attended the case.

To Destroy Japanese Hectics.
Brother Newell, of Hilo, has
given valuable assistance 10 me
Board of Agriculture and Forestry
by his study of the Japanese fungus
and its use in destroying the Jap
anese beetle. Following are extracts
from a bulletin prepared by Jacob
Kotiusky, assistant entomologist:
"Perhaps no one upon these
Islands has had more extensive ex
perience with the propagation and
distribution of this useful fungus
than Bro. Matthias Newell of Hilo.
With the assistance of the pupils at
tending his classes he has been able
to inoculate and distribute tens of
thousands of diseased beetles
through Hilo and vicinity,
besides a good many that
went to other localities and other
Islands. He asserts with authority
that fungus has been distributed to
all portions of the group. His
efforts in and about Hilo have been
rewarded with success which to the
writer's mind is due, first, to Bro.
Newell's preseverance; and second
ly, to the very favorable climaticcon-
ditions, namely, the abundance of
rain in Hilo."
"In course of the past several
years many people of these Islands
have acquired the habit of reposing
considerable confidence m the
effectiveness of this fungus to check
the ravages of the Japanese Beetle.
In point of fact, if the necessary
conditions for its propagation are
supplied, either naturally or arti
ficially, some degree of success is
inevitable. Fortunately fhe beetle
shows preference for plants about
door yards, where favorable condi
tions for the propagation of the
fungus can be created with com
paratively little effort. I therefore
take pleasure in inserting below the
instructions from the most expert
authority on the subject on
HOW TO INOCULATlt JAPANESE
By B. M. Newell.
"Take a box about six inches
deep, and fill about one-half with
damp soil. Keep this soil moist,
not muddy, by occasionally sprink
ling with water. Dry soil will not
work. Collect a lot of beetles and
place them in this box. Be sure
to feed the beetles for they must
not starve. The best time to place
the food in the box is during the
day, because then the beetles are
mostly hidden in the ground. If
the box be opened in the evening
they will try to escape.
"Valuable plants need not be
taxed for their food, for anyone
may have noticed that even certain
weeds are eaten by them. The so
called 'honohono' grass is found in
many places and beetles eat it
"Keep the lid of the box well
down. No special precaution need
be taken about air holes. Keep the
box in a dry, shady place.
"Beetles placed in such a box
and properly cared for will die of
the fungus, for the fungus which
destroys them is now found in all
"A whitish substance grows out
of the joints of the dead beetles,
which after a few days turns green.
Tba substance is the fungus.
When a number of beetles have
developed the green fungus, mix
them well with some dry or nearly
dry earth of fine sand, and scatter
this mixture over and around the
