Dr. Maxwell responded to tho
call for tho roport of tho commit-
too ou xortilizors. Tho uooumout
gavo oxhaustivo data of tho com
position of soils in plantations on
Hawaii, Oahu and Kauai. A foot
depth of an aoro of ground form
ed tho basis of calculations, that
quantity of soil having a weight of
8,500,000 pounds. Thoro was
groat variation in the soils. For
instance, tho amount of limo to
tho aero ran god from 105 .to 983
pounds, that of potash from 30 to
588 pounds, and of nhosphoric
acid 10 to 96 pounds, Tho uso of
nitrato of soda in oxoess was con
demned as extracting too muoh of
tho vital elomonts from tho soil,
This was so woll uudorstood iu
Germany that tho condition was
insortod in leases forbidding tho
use of nitrates for the Ust threo
years of tho term. Dr. Maxwell
had found it hard to convinco
somo plantors that, instead of
using nitrates, they should givo
tho soil othor mattor that it ncod-
od. Tho roport dealt with vari
eties of cano. One conclusion was
that Roso Bamboo took as much
material out of tho soil in
oight yoars as tho Lahaina did in
nine. Hawaiian soil has an
abundanco of silict, having 15
percent to G or 7, und sometimes
only 2 percent, in American soil.
The waste of nitrogen in tho air
from tho burning of trash on tho
ground was describod. It was
simply enormous, as waa tho
wasto of fertilizers from washing
out. Uplands had five and a half
times as much acid as lowlands.
Dr. Maxwoll declared that ho had
givon up oxpressing opinions and
only stated hard facts. As ho
concluded, having only .givon a
summary of his roport, tho moot
ing applauded him.
