At tho nftornoon session of tho
Hawaiian Plnntors' Association,
tho disoussion of fertilizers was
resumed from tho morning.
Mr. Baldwin did not profess to
bo a ohomist nt all, but of course
was intorestod as a planter. Ho
would liko to ask Dr. Maxwell
about minorals in tho trash,
whother thoy wore in a soluble
condition or not. Or, if not solu
ble in water, wero thoy in condi
tion to bo avnilablo foi tho plant ?
Dr. Maxwell answered thoro
was no doubt the elomonts drop
ping down on the ground would
bo available but not for tho pre
sently growiug crop. As soon as
tho trash had rotted down, the
eloments would bo capablo of be
ing absorbed by tho plant. That
is, tho lime, tho phosphoric acid,
the nitre silica need not bo con
sidered, as thore was enough of it
in Hawaiian soil for 500 years.
In answer to anotlior question, he
should say elements from decom
posed plants wero not moro valua
ble, pound for pound, than com
Mr. Baldwin bolievod, from his
oxporionce, that decomposed vege
tation gavo hotter results than
Dr. Maxwell ropliod that much
dopouded on the situation. Some
uplands had too much nitrogen
and acid already. Ho gave in
stances from Hilo and Hnraakniv.
If wo could supply fertilizers in
natural form to tho soil it would
bo much bettor for us. In plow
ing in green matter to acid soil
you are simply adding Bournoss.
Mr. Lowrio gavo an inBtnuca of
good results at Ewa from plowing
land opon and air-slaking it for a
few months. Ho could not under
stand why plantors as roported
should ovordoso their soil with
saltpotro, as thoy should know
that if tho requisite quantities of
lime, potash and phosphoric acid
woro not supplied at tho samo
timo, thoy wero Bimply impover
ishing, ruining, tho soil.
Dr. Maxwell reminded Mr.
Lowrio of a conversation ho had
with him a year and a half ago,
whon tho speaker (old him that
while 'lis was taking eight to ton
toDS of Fugar an acre from tho
ground, he was taking just so

Mr. At'iorloa had replied to
strangers, when thoy a6kod if tho
hoavy yields of Ewa woro not des
troying tho soil, tolling them that
this danger was avoided by thoir
restoring to tho soil tho olomonts
takou out of it.
Mr. Ewart gavo his oxporionco

A roport by John M. Hornor
for tho committoo on forostry was
road by Mr. Athcrton. It spoke
of tho "unproved theory of in
creasing tho rainfall." Had forest
reservation boon carnod into effect
when first advocated, Hamakoa
would novor havo bocomo a dis
trict ot pomonaB. A thousand
havo found homos in tho upper
forests and thousands mora can
find homcB thoro. Bain produces
tho forest, and not forest tho rain.4
All forests of tho earth aro in
rain bolts. Forests no doubt con-
sorvo tho rainfall to a cortnin ex
tent. Tho Hawaiian Islands would
bo badly off for water if they had
doponded on forests. If tho ques
tion was between man and forest,
tho writor would give tho pre
ference to man. Tho presont
forestsof Hawaii havo littlo value
fortimbor. -KbaMatho-only treo
that stock injures, and that only
when tho treo is young. Thore is
a young koa forest growing on a
firo-swept area of Hamakua
whereon stock is allowed to run.
Firo is ono of tho most destructive
enemies of Hawaiian forests.
Worms are moro dostructivo than
any otuor ogonoy oxcopt man.
Thoy aro tho worst onomy of cof-
foo trees. It is tho old, civilized,
cutworm familiar in Amorica.
Mr. Hornor then writos on an-
othor tack. Ho approves of tho
reservation mado by tho Govorn
mont of tho 150-foot strip of forest
to windward of coffee lands. Tho
cultivation of forests on desort
lands is commended. For this
work ho suggests as most dosira
blo such arid mountain slopes as
those in tho vicinity of Mahukona
and Kawaihao on Maui. Alroady
a flourishing young forest of algo
roba exists noar Mahukona,, whioh
was plantod by a younc eirl. The
Government should oxtond tho
work. If tho forests thus croated
increaso tho rainfall, what a bless
ing it would be to tho country 1
They would modify tho climate,
Stock will not injure tho algeroba.

paper on forostry, in whioh it was
said littlo or nothing had been
done. Tho omploymont of nu ex
port forester from tho United
States or olsewhoro was rocom
Mr. Baldwin took exception to
Mr. Giffnrd's aweoping statement.
Llis company bad planted oU.UUO
trees on Maui tho past year, and
would plant 100,000 this year.
Thoy ondoavored to plant trees
that would bo uaoful and propa
gato thomsolvoB with tho aid of
birds. At last soBsion of tho
Legislature an appropriation was
made for a forestry experimont
station on. tho Punchbowl foot
hills. Tho Government was not
moving in tho mattor, probably
believing the United Statos will
tako Bomo action.
Mr. Sobaefer found that cattlo
had dono the barm and novor
hoard about tho worm as being so
destructive. Tho Paoitlo Sugar
Mill had shut cattlo out of a for
est reservation with barbod wiro
fencing. It omployed a speoial
forco of men in this work. His
hoarors would bo gratified to seo
tho difference wboro tho cattlo
woro kopt out. Ho boliovod tho
preservation of forosts to bo more
important than Mr. Hornor
thought. That gontloman hardly
gavo onough importanco to the
conservation of moisturo and tho
modification of tomporaturo from
Mr. Baldwin said tho worms
had dono much damage to koa
forests. .Later ho told of a koa

whoro thoro had not boon a koa

Tho seod would keop in tho
ground for that time, as it con
