CITUUH rilUll'S IS HAWAII.
l'rodnctfl That Should Not lie

Mr. J. K. Hlggins, HorlicuHu.
rist at the Hawaii Agricultural Ex
periment Station, contributes a va
luable article toon "Citrus Fruits
In Hawaii" to the March number
of tho-Hawaiian Forester And Agri
culturist. This is a subject of
special commercial and economic
importance in the Islands on ac
count os the fact that considerable
quantities of these fruits arc im
ported annually. The introductory
paragraphs of the bulletin arc here
"Citrus fruits were introduced
into Hawaii more than a century
ngo. In the record of Vancouver's
voyages it is recorded that in the
year 1792 that explorer gave to one
of the Hawaiian chiefs in Kona
"some vine and orange plants,"
besides other valuable plants and
seeds. A tew days later "some
orange and lemon plants that were
in a flourishing state," were landed
on the Island of Niihau. These
oranges were probably from Tahi-
tian seed, since Vancouver sailed
from Tahiti to these islands and re
cords having received large supplies
from the natives before his depar
ture, Even earlier attempts at the
introduction of the orange and lime
are reported, but it is difficult to
say which of the efforts was first
successful. Some of the oldest
orange trees in the islands are said
to have been in a flourishing con
dition a few years ago at the resi
dence of the late Thomas Brown,
Esq., on Kauai.
Oranges, lemons, limes and po
melos have all found a congenial
home in Hawaii, Indeed, the
orange is sometimes thought of by
the casual observer as being indige
nous, so eminently suitable have
the soil and climstc proved to be.
When properly cared for and fer
tilized some of the native orange
trees produce fruits unexcelled in
point of flavor and juiciness, bear
ing little resemblance to the very
indifferent specimens often found
in the markets, which have been
picked green, dumped into casks
without curing, and sent into the
These facts are in striking con
trast with the statistics, showing
that between $50,000 and $60,000
worth of citrus fruits were imported
into Honolulu alone in the year
ended January 27, 1905. Consider
able quantities have also arrived at
the ports of Hilo and Mahukoua
direct from San Francisco. These
circumstances have seemed 'to make
it desirable to give a statement of
common practices in culture, with
special reference to their applica
tion to Hawaiian conditions."
A comprehensive description of
the cultivation of the orange then
follows, special attention being
given to budding and grafting,
layering, planting, tillage, irriga
tion, fertilization and pruning. A
practical description of gathering,
packing and marketing the fruit is
also given, together with accounts
of insects and other diseases and
their approved remedies. After
treating of the orange, the lemon,
"Pomelos, Grapefruits and Shad
docks" and the lime are accorded
due notice. The article comprises
Bulletin No. 9 of the local experi

Washington Star Favors In licudlttft
The Washington Star hV a Idl
ing editorial voices approval of the
Refund measure, under the head
ing, "The United States and Ha
waii," as follows:
"There is now pending before the
House of Representatives a bill to
establish a fund for public works in
the territory of Hawaii, with a
favorable report from the committee
on territories. That bill should be
promptly passed by both House
and Senate and signed by President.
If passed its signature is assured,
for the measure was recommended
by the President in his annual
message. It is meritorious in every
aspect and it should have been passed
some years ago. ' The least Con
gress can do at this time is to make
baste to atone for the delay aud
the loss consequently entailed upon
the people of Hawaii.
The purpose of the pendingbill
is to set apart a certain percentage
of the federal revenues from Ha
waii, 75 per cent being nar'.ed by
the President and the committee as
a fair measure, for the purpose of
executing the works of a public
nature which every civilized com
The case of Hawaii appeals wjth
singular force to the sentiments ot
the American people. The con
duct of the citizens of the little-republic
during the war with Spain
was of a nature to make friends for
it on the mainland. Although in
the eye of the law of nations a strict
neutral, Hawaii responded to the
tics of blood and common interest
and offered its harbors and shores
as a hospitable refuge for the
American ships passing to and
from the far cast. In doing so Ha
waii placed herself in the keeping
of the United States. Annexation
followed as a natural result, and
with anncxrtion was morally con
veyed a pledge ofsupport and aid.
Thus far virtually nothing has been
done to give that pledge practical
effect. House bill 140 15 offers a
means of expressing the sentiments
of the United States toward the
territory, but its passage is demand
ed by higher considerations than
mere charity or benevolence. As
the committee suggests, it is the
duty of the United States to make
of Hawaii a thoroughly American
community, and the surest means
of doing so is to give the people
tangible evidence in works of the
interest which the United States
takes in the welfare of its distant
Correct Wrong Impression.
Secretary Wood of the Promotion
Committee has started to work
against whatever effects that the
reports about an earthquake here
may have had on the mainland.
In each letter and circular that
is being sent out Mr. Wood is in
serting a sentence to the effect that
there has never beeu so much as a
single brick displaced in Hawaii by
earthquake. This, it is thought,
will contradict whatever impression
people may have gained that
Hawaii is not safe.
Secretary Wood is of the opinion
that very little harm will revert to
Hawaii on account of the report
which was circulated on the coast
saying that Hawaii is sinking.
Such a report will of a necessity be
contradicted soon and with the cir
culars speaking of it in such a man
ner the report will not do much

The Molokan matter has the
right of way aenin this radrfiitig
with the Acting Governor. Mike
was on hand early alfd waited with
muni patience. A conference has
been arranged for 11 o'clock and at
that hour J. B. Castle, Land Com
missioner Pratt and Sam Johnson,
interpreter, arrived. Acting Gov
ernor Atkinson took all into the
executive chambers and began one
more powow over what terms
should be offered to the Russians:
The entire matter was thoroughly
gone into once more, the conference
lasting till nearly 1 o'clock.
A final proposition to be offered
to the Russians was agreed upon
and it will be worked out at once,
Actiug Governor Atkinson was
asked after the conference if it was
known that the rest of the Molo
kans would accept it and take
"Mike's" advice, in view of their

arranged this morning that Mike
and Manager Fairchild will go to

will meet Surveyor Hardey, who
will go over the land at once and

but so far none of these seem to

shows that the settlers still hold

from Japanese emigrants. A large

collect the money, as there was no
