I'rncticiil Aid Offered by the (3or
Circular No. i of the Division of
Forestry is issued. It contains
valuable information concerning
the value of timber, and offers assist
ance to those -desirous of engaging
in the growing of trees.
Among the imports into Hawaii
for the fiscal year ending June 30,
1 9051 wood products ranked seventh
in value, the total for timber, lum
ber, door and window fittings, etc.,
and for furniture, being $528, 1 10.
In a price list recently issued by
one of the leading lumber dealers
in Honolulu ordinary rough lum
ber, Northwest (Red or Douglas
Fir) and Redwood, is quoted at
from $30 to $35 per M., while Red
wood fence posts are listed at 24
cents each. No stronger commen
tary is needed on the desirability of
a local supply.
To assist in meeting the demand,
the Division of Forestry stands
ready, so far as its limited appro
priation will permit, to render prac
tical and personal assistance to in
dividuals or corporations desiring
to establish forest plantations,
wood lots or windbreaks, or to do
other forest work.
This assistance is given in two
First By keeping constantly on
hand fresh seed of the more impor
tant native and introduced trees
and also a limited number of nur
sery grown seedlings of the kinds
most in demand; the seed and
plants being sold at prices just cov
ering the cost of collection or grow
ing. Second By advice and sugges
tion as to the kinds of trees best
adapted for the purpose, locality
and situation of the person desiring
to plant, and the methods to be
pursued to secure the best results
in the planting. ,
Tree planting on a large scale in
this country is necessarily a some
what expensive operation and when
undertaken should be done advis
edly atid in accordance with a sys
tematic plan. The purpose of the
Division of Forestry in ottering to
cooperate with the individual plan
ter is to stimulate interest in tree
planting, and by the introduction
of good methods to secure the best
results in the work done.
There are many areas of waste
land in the Territory where forest
trees could, with advantage, be
planted. On almost every sugar
plantation are unproductive coners
and strips of land, where it is not
advisable to plant cane, which
could well be devoted to trees.
The proper kinds being set out
would in time yield good returns
for bridge timbers, fence posts,
railroad ties or fuel, besides in the
meantime improving the appear
ance of the coutltry-side. But tree
planting is not restricted to the
corporation or to the larger owner
alone. To the homesteader it is
equally, perhaps even more impor
tant, to have a wood lot from which
he can obtain supplies of wood or
fuel. And further, it should uot
be forgotten that the sale value of
a place is increased by the presence
of trees about the house, the whole
protected if need be by a wind
break on the exposed side.
The Division of Forestry stands
ready to give advice as to tlte kinds
of trees best adapted for particular
needs and as to the methods which
should be followed to insure suc
cess, in all classes of forest-tree
planting. It will also undertake
for a time" to' give advice on road
side and street tree planting, al
though this is not strictly within
the province of forest work.
The services of the agent of the
Division of Forestry are without
cost tn the applicant, but his ex
penses for traveling from Honolulu
to the locality visited and return,
and his subsistence, must be borne
by the applicant, When tevcral
persons on a single island are
visited on one trip, the cost of the
trip will be divided among them.
HOW TO MAKK APPLICATION
Applications for th6 assistance
offered in this circular must be
made in writing to the Superinten
to publish the statement. Perhaps
one reason for confidential treat

Tlilo or Tourist Travel.
Honolulu, March 16. 'This
Asiatic tourist is just beginning."
J. A. Kennedy, president of the
Inter-Island Steam Navigation Co.,
made the foregoing remark with
emphasis yesterday. As he had
returned from San Francisco the
previous day, no doubt the dictum
quoted reflects a Coast opinion.
Tuhltlan Tidal Ware and Murrlcauo.
Tahiti and all the islands of
the Society group were swept by
a tremendous tidal wave on the
Boxj night of February 7th, and the
tidal wave was followed by one of
the most disastrous hurricanes ever
known in the South Seas.
More than one hundred islands
were devastated, the principal
island, Tahiti, probably suffering
less in proportion to its importance
than any of the others, and about
28,000 persons were affected by
the great disaster.
There has been no such other
tragedy in the South Seas during
modern times, aiu it is improbable
that the historic devastation, sinii-

"The amount of money tourists
leave in a place is something of

directly expended in hotels and
stores does not show' completely.
The bank exchanges must be
known to convey an adequate
impression of truth. An enormous
amount of money changes hands
through the banks in every Coast
city frequented by tourists."
Mr. Kennedy imparted some
exact statistical information regard

in one particular city, but had
