Vigorous Measures Heavy Ex
The following oMclil report sets
forth In detail tho serious character of
the foiest nres still rasing on Hawaii:
Honolulu. H. T., Aug. 27, 1901.
Wray Tuylor, Esq., Commissioner of
Agriculture and forestry.
Sir: I liac the honor to submit to
3011 the following report of my Investi
gations Into tho destruction of tlm
forest by fire and other matters con-
tiected with your department In the
district of Hamitkua, Hawaii. The Are,
which Is now' raging In tho forest and
doing an enormous amount of damage,
was started by a native, who In the act
of burning brush on his kuleana, allow
ed the fire to get be)ond his control
and It spread Into the forest adjoining
Jils land. This Are, I nm lold, started
iUhe 3d of July and hag continued
tlth'moro or less vigor according to
J&the rise and fall of the wind since thut
lime, and on the day I left the Island
(Aug. 2.1) It was burning fiercely. On
August 17th I visited the burned dis
trict along with Albert Horner of Ku
kalau plantation. We examined pait
of the tract destroyed but could not,
at that time, mako a thorough oxtml
natlun of the whole tract owing to tho
dangetous condition of sam. The
large roots of trees and decayed trunks
some of them entirely covered with 11
thin laver of soil and still smoulder
Ing. are to be found till over the tra
and without any warning, one l.i nut In

by the burning of the wood an J get
.li.ully burned by the red hot nahes
Several of Mr. Horner's men bnvo got
burned In this way. I will now lay
bcfoie vou a conservative cstltinto of
the damage done to the forest up to tho
time of our visit.
Tho trees on tho section JMtroyci
were prlnlcpally koa, kukul, ohla-liu
Owing to the great amount of dead
feins and underbrush which la the
food of flies and the Intcnso heat caus
ed by the burning of such, a very
small percentage of the trees will Bur
vle. in fait, the greater part of thin
are burned to ashes. We estimated that
about -000 acres had been cocred bj
the fire up to August 1'th, the day on
which we visited the burned district
Our estimate of the amount of timber
per acre was about seventy cords. This
Are could probably be headcM off but
It would reqtilro a great many men mid
It would cost a large amount of money
to do the work. The only way tho
fire louid be checked would be to ut
a space through the forest about fifty
yards broad, and carefully burn up all
brush and then bnck Are. This spicu
would probably base to be run tluough
the forest for flc or six miles and ion-

On the morning of August 20th, Al

'me story pf tho trouble Is rather
Interesting, John and Manuel havt
not spoken to each other for four or
the jears on account of a llttlo family
dllTereuce that now seems to havo
spread Itself among other members
of the family. Manuel Is the favored
one on account of his steady habits,
while John has his hands full keeping
out of trouble.
On SSunday last Manuel went t.u', l
his sister's houso and lound his niece
there. It appears that tho young lady
had run away from homo at about 2
o'clock In the morning because she
feared her father would do something
to her for staying out so late at nlgnt.
In the morning, her aunt told her she
bad better go home. Sho did not see
It that way, and remained until Man

tried to get her to go home, but she
would not. ,
Just about this time Jot." came
