A GREAT CALM.
For some time past thcic has been
a lull in matters political of this
kingdom. Peace and quietness arc
good things, but in politics they ai c
not always symptomatic of a healthy
state. Storms clear the air, and
calms biccil foulness. Some people
talk as if political contention was
always vile, not to be appioachcd
by high-minded persons who would
picberre their garments unspotted.
Such lofty idealists foigct, if they
ever knew, bow they came to have
any political liberties at1 all. A con
dition of quiescence cannot long be
maintained with safety in the politics
of any nation that has not attained
to perfection in all the affairs of
government. Good administiations
must dctciior.ilc, and bad ones glow
woise, unless subjected to constant
ciiticism and systematic ccnsoiship.
l'icbiiining that these propositions
will be goncially accepted as axioma
tic, we hold that the picsent stag
nancy in Hawaiian politics involves
eilandnol good Tor the future cf
Thcic are nuinbciless questions
ital to the n.itiou ciying loudly for
definite bctllcmcnt, which have
hitheito been only dealt with in
desultory fashion, and thut'accoul
ing to expediency lather than prin
ciple. Among such questions aic
those of tho currency, of municipal
reform for the capital, ofimmigiation,
of colonization, of public improve
ments including the toads, of the in
dependence of the legiblatuic, and of
constitutional l cfoi in. Probably the
Government of the day will never
entuic to grapple in earnest with
such momentous questions until a
strong opposition party is formed
upon a definite platform to contest
the issues with it. Such a paity to
effect what is rcquiied of it must not
make nominal powei Us immediate
object, but will have to insist upon
the principles involved, no matter in
whose hands the administiatiou of
affaiis may be placed. The liuc
National l'.uty must icfusc ollicc
until it is offered w ith a satisfactory
guarantee that the pi inciplcs adopted
by the people fehall dominate the
1.U1 UK FllOM MISS UObStTlUl.
Miss Nellie Lincoln Kossiter, the
enthusiastic apostle of silk cultuic in
the United States, who has done bo
much and is doing to much for the
industry in that country, writes in
With an abundant Mipply of tjie
mulbeiry (and it would not jie

As regards the trees, Mj. Mar
ques is wrong in stating that "tho
leaves of N mulberry ticc cannot bo
depended on in less than from J) to
10 years growth." 1 claim, what
is well known here, that "the leaves
of any of the varieties of the mul
berry will produce halablo silk in
their third and fourth years." He
is right in saying that "tho young
trees will bo injured by denuding
them of their leaves."
sale Blrlpplua would
trees," mm should novcr w prac
tised. It is not supposed that the sllk
laiscr has liccs to supply the "exact
amount or quantity" of leaves to
furnish n certain quantity of silk,
thus compelling him to injure the
tiees by completely shipping off the
leaves, but, that tho trees are sulll
cicnt In number to take off enough
foliage to feed the worms raised,
and yet not cause an injury to thorn.
And here is where the Osago orange
hedges come in play, whcicor while
the mulbeiry is scaicc.
With a plentiful supply of theso
hciljrcs, as arc to bo found nil
through our Western States, it has
been found that the silk worms fed
for four weeks on the leaves of the
Osage orange, and balance of lime,
till the spinning period, on the
leives of the mulberry, produce an
excellent quality of silk. It must
be remembered, however, that the
Hi st feeding must be on the Osage,
and the last feeding on the mul
bcriy. This rule must never be ic
vcrscd. Silk worms, fed first on
mulbcriy, and transferred from it
to Osage, will not thrive; while, on
the contrary, if fed Hist on Osage,
and then on mulbeiry, they thrive
well. I do not advise this plan
wheie mulbeiry is plenty, but in
cases where the latter is scarce."
The silk produced on the Osage
leaves alone sells for as much as
that produced on the mulbeiry.
The choice of the two is, of course,
in favor of the mulbeiry, " tho
natural food of the silk worm,"
there being objections to the thorns
of the Osage (which will disappear
in a season or two, with proper
pruning and cultivation), and be
cause the terminal leaves, becoming
succulent or milky just about the
spinning time for the worms, induce
disease if fed to them. This latter,
observe, is avoided by feeding the
leaves to the worms only for the
first four weeks. '
Perhaps the Osage feeding is new
to Mr. Marques. 1 cannot pretend
to enter into any argument' with
those lesiding on your islands, they
understanding the climate, temper
ature, soil, etc., which I do not.
But Mr. Marques being a practical
sciiculturist, and being there, has a
grand opportunity to prove whether
silk cultuic can be made a success
on the islands or not.
I am not an advocate of the "old
style rules for propagating the mul
berry tree for silk 'food, because I
think them unnecessary. I do not
belicc in such severe "cutting
down" year after year, but;advocate
.cutting sufllcicntly to iinpart vigor
to the tices, the lower branches in
pailicular. Feeding to .he worms
as wc do, by using the leaves "on'
twig and branch," culj from the
trees judiciously, not only benefits
the worm, but the pruning, conse
quent upon such feeding, will be
found to benefit the trees and be
btifilcient "cutting down'' to improve
them, while utilizing them from the
2nd or 3rd year.
Mr. Marques speaks truly asJ to
the great fruit producer, tho Russian,
being the leabt profitable mulberry
tiee for silk raising, yet the leaves
arc not "loo coarso" to produce
good silk. The white mulberry will
bo the best to commence with, and
if desired tho improved and grafted
varieties may be got afterwards.
Wc advocate the Russian variety
here, because in some sections our
winters arc very severe, and that
tree is very hardy. This last wintpr
in Wisconsin where a nursery man
had the young Kussian mulberry
trees planted out, twice the temper
ature was at -10 below zero, and
the only injury done to the trees
was a little "nipping with frost" of
sonic of the tip ends of the branches,
not injuring the trees.
The mulberry silk worm (Bornbyx
Mori) is the only one in this country
'producing marketable silk, and I
believe the experimenting with other
species, in your country,' would only
end as it did hcie, in waste of time
and failuie. Still perhaps it might
be worth a Irial.
