Sheriff' ot Kauai Ha. Adopted n Good
The Sheriff of Kauai has adopt
ed a plan by which ho hopes to
rid tho Lihue district of the both
eraomo Jopanoao beetles. Becent
ly, letlets woro sent to tbo resi
dents of tho district offering teu
cents for every hundred live
booties handed in to him.
His plan is to take these beetles
as they como and communicate to
them tho parasito discovered by
Prof. Koobelo, froeing them as
soon as thoy have become infest
od. There is no doubt that the offer
will attract the attention of tho
ahildron of tbo Lihue district and
that beotles will be forthcoming in
thousands every day.

Over 2600 Tons of Sugar for the Company This

Senator. Henry Watorhouse ro
turued'froui Hawaii Sunday with
a thirty years leaso on tho Hala
wa plantation in his inside pockt.
This leaso includes all of Dr.
Wight's lands and leases which
will bo turned over to tho Niulii
Sugar Company on tho first of
May. It alito includes GOO tons of
sugar yot to como off, the proceeds
from which will pass into tho
treasury of tho Niulii corporation.
Thus tho Niulii plantation
scLorao develops and tho people
who have been crying it down are
beginning to look around for tbo
stock that they wont delinquent
Halawa has an abundanco of
water, having two reservoirs on
tho top of tho mountain, contain
ing three million and four million
gallons respeoliyoly. Another
largo reservoir is in course of con
struction. Niulii, which was purchased
outright, has four streams of water
and water is being developed in the
mountains by tunuolingthun assur
ing abundanco of water for fluraing
cano to tho mill and supplying
power for electrical work.
Betweon 20 10 aud 2300 tons of
sugar havo yet to bo taken from
Niulii thus making over 2G00 tons
of sugar that will pass into tho
corporation as an asset May 1st.
Un this daro tho two properties
Niulii and Halawa will pa-s
into tho hands of tbn corpomtiou
free 'from 'debt, and with all the
working machinery, stock, labor,
etc., etc. in full running order.
Tho Niulii sugar polarizes at 98
porceutand there is already on the
plantation machinery for rofiniug
the raw sugar produot. Thomas
Kay, one of the ablest maniigrs
of the islands will doubtless buthe
managor of the combined proper

a large surplus on hand which to
gether with the incomo from the
crop to como off will probably bo
paid baok to tbo stockholders iu
tho form of a dividend. This
matter will bo submittod to the
directors and stockholders. Seua
tor Waterbouso is now working
on a prospectus to submit to the
directors and it will bo published

"Regards with favor" is not a

midin this case it moans tbat the

many and Great Britain in tho

Tho Bishop related tho proceed
ings of the general convoution of
tho Ainfricau ohurch in tbo mat
tcr, whiub ondod in postponement
autil utter uouferenco oould be
had with tbo authorities of the
Church in England. At first tho
Bishop waB disposed to wait for
somo communication indicating
what steps should be takon. "No
advices, however, having been re
ceived," ho says iu tho address,
"there appoared on mature consi
deration no valid reason why I
should not tako tho initiatory stop
towards handing over to tbo
church in tho United Statos a re
sponsibility which that churoh is
ready and desirous to assume.
"Under these ciroumstanceB the
courso that 1 have adopted has
beon to forward to tho Archbishop
of (Jautorhury (under whom so
fur as tho Church of England is
concerned, tho final authority
rehts) a recommondatton that tho
spiritual jurisdiction of these Isl
ands be transferred to the Church
in the United States, as soon as
that Churoh is in a position to
receive it, and to raako provision
for its support."
