A CREAT WASTE.
Millions of wealth have inn off
these Islands into the sea within the
past forty-eight hours. Water is
the great essential to any branch of
agriculture in this country, its want
when and where most needed being
the chief drawback to having the
land settled. Yet an ocean of water
has been distilled from the clouds
during the past two days, but only
a comparatively small portion of the
great volume will remain to bless
cither the just or the unjust. Not
only that, but in its courses to
Mother Ocean the rain has robbed
the mountain slopes of incalculable
wealth of soil, deposited some of it
ages ago to await seeding and plant
ing by man for his sustenance.
Does anyone doubt the statement as
to the great waste of wealth in the
water allowed to run unrestrained to
the sea? Let such an one ask
ranchmen or agriculturists, whose
lands depend directly upon the rains
for irrigation, of what value the
recent abundant watciing from the
clouds has boon to them, and their
answer will be a revelation. Ucgard
ing the loss of soil wealth, all who
use their eyes can sec in the deposits
along every freshet stream, and at
the mouths of every river and brook
entering the ocean, evidence enough
to set any reflecting mind consider
ing the question, "Wherefore this
waste?" Although in the economy
of nature, this process in lands of
mountain and vale is a great boou
to the tillers of the plains and the
valleys, yet the bencfil is often over
done, as in the case of destructive
land slides and the demolition of
homesteads wrested Ivy a daring
peasantry from wild nature on the
mountain sides. It is a robbing,
frequently, of Peter to pay Paul.
In this country, where one of the
problems of the future is to utilize
the large areas of mountain slopes
for agricultural purposes, and where
plains and bottom lands arc but a
comparatively small proportion of
the superficial area of the kingdom,
the wasting of the high lands by the
rains that should enrich them can
only be viewed witli dismay.
It would be idle to bewail this
combined waste of water and soil, if
there- was no possibility of prcrent
ing it. There is, however, a well
recognized remedy, ono that thought
ful people in almost every country at
the present day are applying to their
respective territories with annually
increasing vigor. They arc finding
by experience what scientific minds
have long and almost vainly been
preaching, namely, that, with tho
depiction and destruction of forests,
once good land is becoming an arid
and barren wilderness, rivers nnd
jl'u jla.,i' jLsmssssBsstasmfm
brooks aic drying up, nnd Injurious
climntic changes nre taking place.
They mc thcicfoic forming forestry
associations on every hand, for tliu
promotion of Irco culture nnd tho
pievciilion of llio wanton nnd care
less destruction of forests. One of
(lie most prominent anniversaries
now established in many States of
the Union, and in different Provinces
of Canada, is Arbor Day. Upon
that occasion largo numbers of peo
ple tut n oul nl many points to plant
liccs, sometimes with considerable
cei oniony nut always Willi enthu
siasm. Already, within a very few
years, a largo addition liny been
made to the. forest wealth of both
countries by the operations of Arbor
Day. It is a holiday than which no
more pleasant or profitable one
could be instituted in this Kingdom.
There is a good deal of interest here
at present in the subject of forest
culture, and the Legislature showed
an enlightened nppieciation of its
importance at the last session. Of
course, the first and probably greatest
dilliciilty to be encountered in the
institution of an Arbor Day in this
country, would be the lack of trees
to plant. Still, in the proper season,
enough young shoots of already
nourishing trees could probably be
obtained to make :i beginning.
When next trees aie set out on the
mountain slopes environing Hono
lulu, let the occasion be signalized
by a public holiday that shall be
perpetuated under the above designa
tion. EDITORIAL NOTES.

The Kussians were a month ago
busy sinking torpedoes in the harbor
of Cronstadt. For anything wc know,
Cronstadt, torpedoes, Kussians and
all may, by this time, be in ten thou
sand millions of little pieces, with
" the flag that braved a thousand
years the battle and the breeze" fly
ing over the ruins.
The Local Legislature is proceed
ing with business slowly and will not
probably prorogue much before the
end of the month. When consider
ing the Franchise Bill, introduced by
the Uovernnient, on Monday night,
the leader of the Opposition moved
an amendment providing for univer
sal suffrage, which was defeated by
a vote of 1!) to M, and the Govern
ment bill passed.
The above item from the proceed
ings of the Legislature of Nova Sco
tia is an indication of the progress of
the "manhood suffrage" doctrine.
The franclii.se has been tried in that
Province both ways: first, for about
a quarter of a century on property
qualification; next, for about twenty
years, " manhood suffrage" ruled;
again there was a return to a quali
fied electorate, ' and now the last
scene of all that ends this strange
evcntly story," is the defeat of a
motion to " return to second child
ishness." AN AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY'S OBJECTS.
Many years ago, I was, through
my special studies, although still
quite 3'oung, elected secretary of an
Agricultural Association, over which
I was afterwards called to the honor
of presiding. Our society was ac
tive, earnest and industrious; the
toll of membership was improving,
which gave us respectable financial
capabilities of our own, outside of
government support; our shows
were brilliant and well-attended,
our prizes eagerly sought for and
exciting great emulation and compe
tition, and really tho society did a
vast amount of good, and accom
plished solid work. And yet this
will perhaps prove a surprise to
many after years of the most suc
cessful and pleasing experience,
wo truly realized that the best re
sults, the most real good, worked
out and obtained by our society,
was io by our glittering and Matter
ing sIiowb and fairs, hut by our
monthly meetings and public dis
cussions of agricultural topics, and
still more by our monthly journal.
Hut special attention, special ener
gies were devoted to these two
-wrww.1 .i n ., n . iihiiwj-,1 wi wmmmmiimmmMiamBmsEm iimwinwi inmiiiimiwi , im mmmWMmmmmVit ,
branches. Our meetings were pre
pared before hand, Interesting time
ly subjects selected and submitted
to the study of all members by
printed circulars with all questions
necessary to elucidate tho mailer,
and members were expected to send
their answers in writing if not able
to attend personally to the debates ;
consequently our meetings were al
ways well-attended, and never failed
to bring out valuable practical in
formation, which went to give inter
est to our journal. In this we not only
published Hie information resulting
from our debates, but also condensed
all that was found suitable, from
other agricultural publications and
f i om the workings of similar ncigh
boi lug associations; also was this
journal read and hiuhlv prized, for
giving the result of truly practical
experiment, which gained it access
within the very class it was intended
for, small farmers and land owners.
But all this good would never have
been realized by yearly shows only,
with no other intercourse between
our members. Then the next feature
wc found of greater usefulness still,
was the institution of a special com
mission, secretary or agent, ade
quately salaried, whose whole busi
ness was to give gratuitously to our
members all the information they
might want on any agricultural sub
ject; he was their natural interme
diary for finding out and procuring
an v desirable seeds, books, imple
ments, instruments, and even labor
ers; and by having access to all
catalogues of producers and manu
facturers, and also to an extensive
aciicultural library, he was able to
11ml out easily any information which
would otherwise have cost any
isolated person years of searching
and often useless enquiries.
I do not pretend to say that any
thing approaching such a perfect
and successful organization could be
realized at once by an association in
this community; but certainly, a
good deal which has never been done
or tried here could be imitated, even
if only at iirst on a very small scale,
which eventually would prove emi
nently successful. As you said, the
Koyal Hawaiian Agricultural Society
is still " capable of rehabilitation,"
and could very soon do good work.
If necessary," 1 could enumerate
quite a score of residents who could
be applied to for valuable piactical
information and experience, and I
could give several points worthy of
the special attention of all, who, like
myself, wish to see a new start given
and a successful and useful future
life secured to our local Agricultural
Society. A. Mauquus.
