Land for the Station.
On examination of the records of tht
Hawaiian Government before the an
nexatlon of this Territory to the Unit
cd States, It wns found that while
there weie evidences of tho Intention
of that Gov eminent to reservo tho Ke-walo-uka
tract for experimental pur
poses, the reservation had never actu
ally been completed. Soon after the
annexation of the Territory, on recom
mendation of the Rccretaiy of tho
Navy the President Issued a

Importance of Taro.
Plantings of taro hnvo already been
begun, with the special object of study
Ing a uiseasc which plays havoc with
that crop. This Is a cry Important
matter, since tho taro is a principal
food plant of the Islands. Every part
of the plant Is enten at some stage of
Its growth. The root is large. Hearty
nnd lull of starch, and Is exceedingly
wholesome and palatable. It grows In
marshy lands In the valleys, but there
nre also varieties suited to upland cul
tivation. Piobably 50 per cent of the
working population In these Islands
depend on taro for their dally food
The fungous disease above referred to
cuts down the yield to one-fourth or
one-thlnt of the normal average, and
Is nil to prevalent. U'lthtn the last
decade the price of taro has Incrcnsed
600 per cem because of the losses by
this disease nnd the attendant deteri
oration in quality and jleld. There
arc many other fungous diseases of
Irults and vegetables prevalent on the
Islands in Hawaii which should be
Poultries and Pigs.
Some poultry expcrffticnts have also
teen Inaugurated. These could be
undertaken immediately without great
expense, and It is hoped that the) ma
lead to ic8tilts of Immcdiaio practical
usefulness. Largely because ot thu
gteat number of diseases with which
barnvnrd towls arc afflicted in the Ha

does not meet the demand. LIvh

tests or vailetles. To show the Impor
tance of such Investigations, Mr Smith
makes the following statements;
The Hawaiian Islands market de

from the Mainland nt nil seasons of

It Is hoped that experiments In coffee

Jett Mi Smith lepoitH ns follows'
Piolmhlv $1011110,0110 has been sunk
In unprofitable to..eo cultivation in
these Islands during tho last ten
years. An Intelligent Investigation of
all phases of the coitco industry will
well repay, Coffee, Is a white man's
crop. It Is grown at elevations tin-
suited to cano nnd whero tho climate,
Is admirably adapted to a comfoitablo
and healthful existence.
The coffee lands of Hawaii can bo
made ns productive as nny In tho
world. Experiments In the selection
and crossing of varieties to produco
niore prolific or hardier trees, and es
'wallan coffee una already made for lt
self an enviable reputation for quality
and flavor of berry. If it could bo
sold on Its merits Instead of In compe
tition with tho low-grade coffees of
lirazll and Central America, it would
In time prove nn Immensely profltablo
crop. Au effort should bo made to
save this Industry from totnl cxtlnc-
.Hon. It Is a crop especially suited to
'the small Investor the man who can
i '"'"'l up a homo and caro for his crop
himself. Tho establishment of tho
.conee industry on a successful basis
would make the i-awallan Islands a
land of smnlt farmers more quickly
than the transformation could bo ac
complished In any other way or
through the medium of nny other crop
or Industry, llcsldcs coffee, varlouH
spices nnd drugs could be grown, such
ns pepper, allspice, ginger, caruamom,
cloves, various tannins, .nos, and oils.
Hut with n 01 theso the experiment
station must lead luo way and show
tho possibility of profitable culture bo
fore the farmers are advised to under,
take me cultivation.
Fertilizers and Drainage.
Investigations on methods of culti
vation and tho uso of fertilizers and
drainage and Irrigation are also much
needed. On this point Mr. Smith
Very little has been done to demon
strate the valuo of thorough cultiva
tion and tho use of commercial for
tlllzcrs except In connection with su
gar cane. There Is a wldo field for
work In these two lines. It Is n recog
nized prlnclplo wiu a cane field must
be well prepared and a cano crop well
culttvnted and fertilized to secure tlio
best nnd largest ylc.-s. but with al
mott nil other crops 11 ib tnken for

Forest Reserves Recommended.
Investigations In forestry are much
to be desired, but theso can not bo un
dertaken by tho station without con
siderable Increase In Its resources;
nnd In nny case, whatever Investiga
tions the station might undertake in
this direction should oe done In coop
eration with the Durcait of Forestry.
Hegar. Ing this subject, Mr. Smith
makes the following statements -
Many of the natlvo woods of this
" ."". cnac"'niion may be carried
out. The sugar plantations nil depend
iiueciiy err indirectly on tho wooded
mountain slopes ror their water sup
pl). and It Is duo to tnclr owners that
something bo done to check the furth
er destruction of tho native forests,
nnd also to replant largo areas with
trees (native nnd foreign) which shall
In the future become commercially
Larger Appropriation Needed.
Considering tho varfety of subjects
for Investigation, tho annual appioprl
atlon for the maintenance or tho Ha
waii experiment station should be not
less than $13,000. 'lo properly equip
It with buildings, apparatus, imple
ments, ilvo stock, etc., a special np.
pi epilation ot $lo,00 Is very much
needed. It wns hoped that the Legis
lature or tho Territory would rollow
tho example of tho other States and
Tenltorles In supplementing tho na
tional funds for the maintenance and
equipment of the station, but though
measures looking to this end were In
(induced they railed to pass.
Later on In tho report the subject
(it the Inlgatlon laws and custouiH
now prevailing hero Is mentioned, ns
"In lesponso to numerous requests
from those engaged In Irrigation In the
Hawaiian Islands, plans nre being
made ror a bulletin tleullng with tho
Itrlgutlon laws and customs which now
control tho ownership and distribution
of streams In those Islands. Tho lm

Is manifest that the samo problems
which havo arisen In California anu
other arid Stntos where streams havo
boenfully utilized will havo to bo
dealt wltli In theso Islands, and It is
the belief of those most directly con
cerned thnt this Investigation can
greatly promoto tho enactment ot
