Antl-mimlclpallsts will probably op
pose park extension "because It will In
crease taxes." These opponents of
progress would prefer that Hawaii Jf
fer Its people and Its visitors the at
tractive landscapes furnished by Ian'"
na tangles and horse pastures,
Krom Its (The New York Even
Ing I'ost) attitude against the rule
of the black majority In the South,
and In favor of the political as
cendancy of the better class of
whites we can get a line upon Its
principles which warrants us In the
hypothesis wc hao drawn. Ad
vertiser. Yet this same Advertiser says the
native Hawaiian takes the Initiative In
drawing the color line.
The Chinese reform movement Is
suffering the set-back from cross pur
poses certain to result from reasonably
intelligent men leading Ignorant
hordes. Their prospects for bucccss vce
further complicated by the hesltanc
of the powctH to place full confidence
In the Reformers capacity to deal w It.i
the situation should they defeat 111
Imperial armies. The Indications a '
that the nrctcnt activities will rcsol.-c
into olio of the smaller historical dc
tails which played an unsuccessful part
In accomplishing Chinese reform In n
few months. And the selfish greed of
the powers will have not a little to do
with the failure.
PUBLIC PARK PROPOSALS.
Tho plan for a public park on Tan.
talus Is characteristic of the public
spirit shown by the Hon. Samuel D.i
mon and his constant regard for tu
Interests of the people. Certainly tho
first Legislature of the Territory can
do nothing that will make Us work
more memorable to present and fu
ture generations than the enactments
of laws and the appropriation of funds
that will give this city a public park
system appropriate to Its present prog
ress. Should this be secured Indirect
ly through tho granting of a municipal
charter, tho city can well afford to lend
Its credit to public park extension.
In connection with this proposal, thy
fait comes to the public mind thai the
defunct government of which Mr. Da
mon was a member was party to I n-.-
Ing over to private . citizens the one
particular spot on Mount Tantalus,
that had for years been carefully tend
td by the Uoaid of Agriculture for fu
ture use as a public park. What part
Mr. Damon had In the affair Is of little
Import at the present time. A proper
fulllllmt'tit of tho park scheme, lion
ever, should Includo a positive effort to
save this land to the people. This Is
one of the deals stopped by the I'resl
dent's land order. It Is n deal that miy
even now be sanctioned by the Presi
dent acting under the hypnotic niliience
of ofllclnls whose regard foi " peo
ple's Interests In this Instance -. woe
OPPOSITION TO CAU.r
The special correspondent of the So
attle Times outlines tho easy pathway
mapped out for the Pacific Cable bill
In tho present Congress. He adds,
"Notwithstanding this easy sailing,
however, for the cable bill, It will uu
tloubtedly experience a stormy passage
for the. Northwest coast Is prepared to
make a strong effort to have the Pa
cific coast terminus on I'ugot Sound In
stead of San Francisco."
This statement Is pleasant reading to
tho great telegraph combinations thi't
have been ever watchful to take ad
vantage of local Jealousies or any thing
elto that might servo to delay legisla
tion for Pacific cable construction. It
sucma hardly possible that Congress
men or Senators of tho Northwest will
offer anything beyond a perfunctory
opposition to tho San rranclsco-IIaw.ill
scheme. Neither Is it probable that op
position to thin route can head off
legislation much longi-r. Sectional
jealousy Is too apparent; the demands
of commcrco nnd eventualities of war
are too pressing for Congress to allo'v
Itself to be held up by the. specious
arguments of tho northern routo.
This great circle, northern ion o
proposition has about as much fore us
regards tho table a3 It has with captain
of sailing vessels and Btcamers, It can
be easily demonstrated on paper th. t
the shortest way to the Orient Is by
way of the great clrclo. It has also been
demonstrated by long practice that 'h
heavy weather encountered nullifies
nny advantages offered by tho shorter
distance. 'I he longest way mound Is
the shortest way home, especially when
favorable tiade winds are oncouiitcied
in place of tho dangers of a northern
sea. Until the north polo falls to man
ufacture Icobergs, tho prestige of Ha
wall as a mldocean center for ships of
commerce nnd cable lines cannot bo

WITH VALUABLE TREES
Over 500 Species All Forests Made
of Mixed Varieties-Previous Laws
Washington, Nov. 20. The divisions
of customs nnd Insular affalis of t'.o
War Depa.'.ment haj made puul'r a
summary of the first report of the
1'tilllpplne Uureau of Froestry, organ
lied In Its present form under an order
of the military Governor, dated April
H, 1900. Its first work was confined
to ascertaining the conditions of the
recoids received from the Span'sh fSitv
eminent, tinder which that bureau' had
nut only had the care of the forests, bat
also the survey of the public lands.
The laws In force nt the ttmo of Am
erican occupation arc said to bo In
line with the most advanced legist vtlon
of Europe, but were not fully enforced,
and licensed the cutting of nny and
everything. The result was that valu
able rubber, gutta percha, and ylang
ylang trees wcie taken, nnd even t.'io
most valuable used ns firewood.
The old regulations were translate.)
and revised, taking effect In their nev,
form on July 1st last. They provide to
a system of licensing by which per
mils to cut timber can be secured, .lie
fees being based upon the different
varieties, of which 308 arc named in the
order. After the regulations were pro
mulgated more than fifty additional
species of trees became Known, nnd
others nro being brought to the know
ledge of the bureau almost ever)' wck
The director, Captain Ahem, estlmat-'i
the total number of tree species In h"
nrchlpclago at nearly COO.
There arc no pure forests of nny on-1
sptcles, rnrely more than three or four
trees of one variety being found group
ed together, so that a lumberman look
ing for a shipload of one kind of tim
ber would And It practically Impossible
to cut that and no other nnd cargo"!
must be assembled from different
points. Captain Ahcrn states that from !
different sources of Information he Is
led to believe the public forest lands
comprise from one-fourth to possibly
onc-hnlf the area of the Philippines, or
from 20,000,000 to 40,000,000 ncrcs.
There are fully 5,000,000 ncres of virgin
foreBt owned by the Btate In the Isl
ands of Mlndoro and Parngua. The Isl
and of Mindanao, with nn area of some
20,000,000 ncrcs ,1s almost entirely cov
ered with timber, nnd even In the prov
ince of Cayagan. in Luzon, there nre
more than 2,000,000 acres of forest.
In mnny other provinces of Luzon.
especially In tho country close to Ma
nila, much timber has been cut, and to
fill largo contracts the lumber men are
obliged to go quite a distance from
the city In order to find a suitable
Captain- Ahem mentions tracts ..f
virgin forests to bo seen on the south
ern Islands, where from 10,000 to 20,000
cubic feet of magnificent tlmUci per
acre was standing, with trees more
than 130 feet In height, the trunks clear
of branches for blxty feet nnd moic
than four feet In diameter. He states
that, In these forests there nre millions
of cubic feet of timber which should
ho cut In order to thin this dome
growth, so that tho maximum annual
growth could he obtained.
There nre a largo vol lety of valuable
gum, rubber nnd gutta percha tree,
seventeen dye woods nnd the ylaug-
ylang. the oil from blossoms of which
latter tree Is tho base of so many per
fumes. There nro no forest roads or river
driveways In tho Islands considered
worthy of mention. At present tit"
tues urc felled far from any road ami
hauled out very slowly by ono or moic
carnbao, with the result that many
tracts nro left untouched.
An Englishman traveling In Mary
land hnd occasion to luvestlgato the
running time of tho trains that passed
through tho small place where he was
stopping. Carefully searching a time
table, ho found apparently that there
would bo an express train due nt t
o'clock that afternoon. The English
man was on time with his grin. etr..
nnd so was tho express train. Tho ln-
intenmng passenger watched It ap
proach and thunder by tho station n
top speed. The traveler wns annoyed,
and turning to a colored man who
stoop nenr, remarked: "That train
didn't stop!" "No, sir." replied tho
colored citizen, cheerfully, "dldn' cv'n
