DREDGING DELAY8 WHARF.
Contrary to tho first expectations ot
Minister Young, tho Channel wharf
and warehouse will not bo completed
for about a month past tho contracted
tlmo ot February 28. This delay Is
from no fault of Cotton Brothers &
Co., the contractors. It has been found
that tho ledgo requiring to bo dredged
Is wider and contains moro coral than
was anticipated. To drlvo tho piles
through tho coral would havo taken
off tho copper, and then tho worms
would make a short Ufo for tho piles.
However, one-half of tho wharf
frontago and tho entlro warohouso aro
ready for commerce. Thcro Is 200 feet
of deep water along tho Inner end of
the wharf. To enable vessels to como
there right away tho dredge Is to be
taken In nt tho back of tho wharf to
work from tho outer end of tho ledgo
Inwardly. This will keep tho dredgo
out ot tho way ot shipping.
Superintendent Howell Is deputed by
Minister Young to ask tho Board of
Health this afternoon for permission
to use the warohouso nnd tho half ot
tho dock which Is available. Tho Gov
ernment will engage to maintain quar
antine between tho parts of tho wharf
occupied nnd not occupied.

RELIEF IN WHITE LABUK
Dr. Maxwell's Opinions Strengthened
by Queensland Trip.
Favorable Comments Hade Upon Bis Work
Immtnse Amounts ot Data- Much That
Is ot Value to Hawaii.
Dr. Walter Maxwell, director of the
Experimental Station and Laboratory
of the Hawaiian Planters' Association,
who Is also tho Hawaiian correspond
ent of the Department of Agriculture
of tho United States, shortly after his
return from his mission to Queensland
promised n Bulletin representative an
interview upon tho subject of that mis
sion. This morning, the opportunity
being favorable, Dr. Maxwell kept his
word. As a rulo the doctor is rather
averse to talking through the news
papers and never can bo Induced tncre
to unless ho thinks It may bo of somo
uso to this country.
"My business," Dr. Maxwell said In
answer to tbo first question asked him,
"was to Investigate the stato ot tho
sugar Industry of Queensland, and at
tho Instance of tho Queensland Gov
ernment. In other words, the Industry
was felt to bo in a very unsatisfactory
condition, tho causes of which wcro not
clear to them, and as a consequence tho
Government of tho colony atkcd mo
to visit tho country and examlno and
report upon tho matter.
"My report Is now In tho hands of
the Queensland Government and 1
sco by papers received from tho capi
tal In tho Mariposa that tho report Is
being most favorably considered by tho
leading journals. As a matter ot fact,
tho colony Is Intensely Interested In Its
sugar Industry, nnd it appears that any
Government In charge ot tho national
affalis must tako measures that may
bo considered necessary for tho main
tenance and expansion of tho Indus
try." QUEENSLAND'S ADVANTAGE.
Tbo Bulletin Is allowed by Dr. Max
well to quote from an editorial in tho
Briabano Courier written after ho left,
and which among other things has tho
"As shown by tho experts, wo havo
a magnificent estate In our whlto farm
ors. Dr. Maxwell cannot too strongly
Impress upon us tho advantage wo pos
sess over other cane-growing countries
in bnvlng our cane fields In tho hands
ot white men content to work small
areas, and who are full of energy and
grit Into tho bargain. He tells us
plainly that wo do not properly rcalizo
our special fortune in this matter. Ho
says also that tho conditions of pos
sible cultivation nre In our favor.
Given a thoroughly sound, that is to
say, a scientific and proper system ot
cane farming, and ho says that Queens
land need fear nobody."
"How docs their cllmato compare
with ours, Doctor; I mean regarding
tho labor of whlto men?"
"Part of their cllmato In ono district
Is not quito as favorablo to whlto men
ns that ot Hawaii. In that district tho
sugar area Is spread out between 27
and 16 degrees of south latitude. Two
other districts nro moro favorable to
whlto men than tho Hawaiian Islands.
Tho Introduction ot Australian trees
Into the swamps along tho banks ot

move tho miasma or malaria from tho
city ot Homo, nnd In this place 1 would
suggest to Hawaii that most excellent
work could be done In planting the cm

"With respect to tho colonics gen
erally, they possess enormous natural
resources. As you know, the wool in

tries of tho world, whilst tho mining
possibilities of tho country, aro by no
"Of courso you will see, from tho few
things I have said, what a political and
. economical strength It gives to an In
dustry like tho sugar In having a largo
' number of white farmers directly In-
terestcd In It.'
At this point Dr. Maxwell kindly
showed the reportor a statement that,
above everything else, Illustrates tho
extrcmo care and detail with which ho
went Into tho investigation of each
subject. In this statement Is seen a
long roll of names of whlto farmers,
tho number ot acres ot cano, Including
both plant and rntoon, grown by each
of theso farmers, tho total tons of cane
that each farmer sent to tho mills, and
oven tho analysis of the Juice from the
cano of each of theso men. This state-
men snown by tho Doctor wua merely
a sample, out of a ponderous mass of
data in notebooks and documents, Il
lustrating how his Investigations In
Queensland wcro conducted. Somo of
the results, Dr. Maxwell says ,ho In
tends for the uso and advantngo of Ha
waii. He has all tho data of each
Queensland sugar district carefully
classified as to soils, climate, small
farmers, labor and tho genornl results
of tho Industry.

Honolulu on a ouslness proposition. 1
was not 'shanghaied' but wmt at tno
earnest solicitations of Mr. Weaver,
'the proposition was the lloatlng of a
cocoa plantation In Samoa. I told Mr.
Weaver that 1 was willing to go into
any proposition that was equaro and

turally I do not wish any such thing to
"All went well on tho trip. I was
treated In a most hospttablo manner
and have absolutely nothing to com

ney Is concerned.
"We went to Apis, Samoa, and thcro
mado arrangements for tho turning
over by native chiefs of several thou
sand acres of land nbout nine miles out
from Apia. Weaver had a letter trom
a San Francisco friend to H. J. Moon,
a big cocoa planter ot Samoa welch
represented him as an American mll
onaiie and a yacht owner. Naturally
things went well and Weaver succeed
ed through this man's efforts, in get
ting an option on tho land for six
months, the .cases, It taken up, to b
for forty years. My namo did not ap

"Upon tho arrival ot tho yacht Nor
