GOOD HEWS FOR. PLANTERS
Prof. Koebele Says ' Cand Borer Has
Disappeared From Fiji.
la', FIJI About
Tret Seeds Sent.
David Haughs, Commissioner
o -Agrioulture, roooied by the
Mfowera yesterday a letter from
Prof. Kosbele, dated Sydney,
October 6, which will undoubted
ly prove very interesting to fruit
growers and eugtr men in the
Prof. Koebele prefaces his re
marks with the statement of the
fact that there- will arrive bore by
the Alameda three boxea of scale
bugs and a lot of valun'blo tree
Beeds. The scale bugs are sent
hero so that tbntr parasite may
be produced. The seeds are of
many varieties, including somo of
the most valuable of timber trees,
suitable for planting in auoh
places as Nananu' Valley.
Prof. Koebele states further
that, during the last two years a
Tory peculiar kind of fly has ap
peared in Australia and that it is
particularly dangerous because it
attaoks every kind of fruit to bo
found there, the limo and tig ex
cepted. On account of this discovery
Prof. Koebele warns Commission
er Haugbs to allow no more fruit
from Australia and the southern
islands to be imported into the
country until further information
is forthcoming. Should the fly
once enter the Islands it will
mean an immense lots 'to the fruit
growers, particularly since it is
known to have a special proceleri-
ry xor Bananas.
Prof. Koobele also states that
n short time before writing, ho
received a communication from
the Colonial Sugar Co. of Fiji, the
mon at the bead of affairs having
learned of bis intended visit there
for the purpose of studying (he
The communication tated that
the cane borer had entirely dis
appeared from the myiar cane
fields of Fiji and that "the-crops
were doing well.
As Fiji is tho homo of the cane
borer, Prof. Koobelo takes this as
a most satisfactory pieco nf infor
mation as it shows thai there must
needs have been somn cause for
the disappearance. Now, instead
of studying the borer itself and
casting about for some method of
ridding Hawaii of the pest, Prof.
Koebele will only to loolcfor the
canse of the disappearance.
Profj Koebele was in the woods
three wboje days looking for
various insects that might prove
of value to the Islands. Se found
some that were studied by him
some eight years ago but as those
did not turn out well then, he
wasted no further time with
The professor was to leave for
Now Caledonia the day after
writing the letter from which tho
above points were gleaned. It

to Fiji after spending'a few days
in this plaoe. About 'two months
will be spent in the latter place.

heaviest stockholders when asked
bis opinion said.
"I hear thero is a great deal of
talk on tho street regarding tbe
propDsition you refer to. Just
at prosent I do not know what
will be done. Mr. Dillingham
and Mr. Soper are now at work
trying to effeot a compromise of
their difficulty. This will prob
ably tike until late tonight. My
eelf and other largo holders who
are greatly interested in the suc
coss of the plantation will havo a
meeting before tbo meeting called
for all tbo shareholders and deoido
what aotion to take. Oar co ion
will bo based on tho decision ar

" If in our opinion it ia to tho
best interest of tho Waialua Agri
cultural Company to vote for the
inoreaso of the capital we shall do
so. If we doom it not to tho ad
vantage of tho company to in
crease tho stock wo will vote
against it. Tho interests of people
interested in tho stock from a
purely speculative standpoint will
not bo considered by us.
" If the people who are kicking
about tbo parpos of proposed
meeting on the street will como to
the moeting and register their
kioks it will the best thing. As
far as tho legality of the calling
tho meoting for the purpose stated
is concerned our bye-laws give
