I WATCH WORD
Senators Working for
Reductions In' Proper
SENATOR BROWN'S SPEECH
ON COST OF LIVING
Believes in Giving a Man Enough
to Live Decently On Senator
Mr. Cecil Drown made a speech In
the Senate the other day that has evl'
silently been carefully considered by
every member of the .Senate for, In
place of the very rabid spirit that was
shown in the beginning there now
exists n moie temperate tone. Among
other things, Mr. Drown said:
"Living In Hawaii Is higher than In
California. Only sugar Is raised and
all lands possible are being secured for
tho carrying onof this Industry. Our
beef and mntjon Is coming from the
States by the ship load. Nothing but
sug.ii Is "raised here and the cost of
living It exorbitant. Until wo havo
. small farmeis here, living will continue
to cost as much and more; That J
why 1 do not bellcvo in cutting down
salaries? On the other hand, I do not
believe In raising salaries for the pres
ent state of our finances will not al
low It. .
"In ISjI 'S2 and '33 wo sent flour,
potatoes nnd the like to California by
the ship loads. Now, everything Is be
ing Imported into tho country. With
living as high ns this stat'o of affalis
has made It ,we would not be doing tho
fair thing to the employes of the gov
ernment by cutting their salaries down
to the ground. Such action will cripple
their livelihood and will not do tho
government a bit of good. I do not be
lieve In extravagance but I do believe
In giving our government 'ofllccrs
enough to live dccer.tly on."
Mr. Drown then went on to talk of
the government employes of Orcat
Britain. He said that the reason for
the efficiency and absolute trustworthi
ness of these men was due to the sala
ries attached to the oMces making It
possible to secure tho very best men
for tho work.
As has been said above, the Senate
has come down to a moro temperate
mode of procedure. A couplo of days
ago both Kalauokalanl and Kanuhai
wore for striking out altogether and
cutting down to a very low flguro but'
now, Knir.tioi;ninni nas cnangca anu is
out for n proportional reduction alt
along the line as may easily bo seen oy
tho work yesterday. In salaries bo
tween two and four thousand, a hun
dred dollars Is taken off and, In higher
salaries n little moro is dropped. The
Republicans as a body sided with this
net Ion on the part of Kalauokalanl nnd
the consequence was that a lot of work
was done yesterday forenoon.
It was rontended by many that somo
of the Senators would strike friends In
various government positions and that,
nt such times, there would be an effort
to allow salaries to remain lntnct.
However, during yesterday forenoon's
work, the natives ran across several
friends but. under the steady leader
ship of Kalauokalanl, their salaries
were also cut down, not a slnglo effort
being made to leavo them as In the
Another fact showing that temper
ate notion Is desired Is the rcforrlng of
various Important Items such as the
pay of police on tho various Islands,
to dlfi'eient committees. Early In the
consideration of the bill, there was no
such srl'lt shown.
This showing In tho Senate has eaus.
cd doubtless to look upon that August
body with greater respect than over be
fore. That tho Intention Is firm for
tho continuation of this good work
seems well proven by tho following

Prof. Koebele, the government ento
mologist, s Just now working on his
fungolds for the destruction of tho Ja
panese beetles, a step to which he has
been forced on account of the lack of
beetles from which to procure the nc-
cessary destructive agency of ono of
Hawaii s worst pests.
So far, the professor has not obtained
any results ns the proper time has not
yet elapsed. He expects to be able to
raise a lot of the fungoid In about a
week's time. When this Is forthcom
ing, he will make a solution to be giv
en out for the purpose of spraying

Speaking to a Bulletin reporter this
forenoon, Prof, Koebele said: "I ex
pected to see a great Increase in the
number of beetles this year but have
been agreeably disappointed. The rea
son for my expecting such a result Is
this. Last summer was very dry and
therefore, favorable to beetles, ths fun
golds bslng slow to develop under such
conditions. However, this very fact
that there was not the great Incrcaso
expected, goes to show that during the
previous year, the fungoid did Its work

a decrease in tho quantity of beetles,

the Australian beetle has not made Its
appearance In the country. If It ever
does, tho sugar man will surely trem

prevalent In Queensland, is a big Insect.

"The 'Australian beetle, when It has

"I sent some of the fungoid to the
government entomologist of Queens

from trying any of It on the Australian
beetles. Prof. Maxwell, who recently
left for that place, has determined to
experiment with It on account ot the
good results he has noticed In Hawaii
