Damago done by tho "Maul
Ullglit" niul what could bo dono to
overcome It was tlia principal
topic of discussion at ttie regular
meeting ot tho Hoard ot Agriculture
nnd Forestry yesterday afternoon.
The "Maul Ullglit," or orthesla In
slgnls. Is especially notlcenblo on the
Island of Maul, where It uttacks the
lantana. The matter was brought to
tho notlco of the Hoard by tho Hono
lulu Improvement Advisory Hoard,
which urged that In view of the dev
astating spread of tho blight of late,
come measures bo taken as soon as
possible to tntroduco tho natural en
emies of the orthesla, that they may
multiply and be distributed In the
various Islands of tho Territory,
l'rof. Koebele, who Is now and haB
been for tho past two years In Mex
ico, doing work for tho Hoard, will
probably leavo thero In the nonr fu
turo for Hawaii. It was through
nlm that V. M. Glffard was able to
make, tho authorltatlvo statement
that natural enemies of tho blight ex
isted In Mexico, and that It would
not bo nny trouble to securo them
when they wcru needed. Hut It wm
again bIiowii that It might not be
possible to reach Prof. Koebelo by
cable before he left Mexico, as he
was due already to depart. Kfforts
to do so, however, will probably be
Captain Kldwell, who had Intro
duced the resolution first that the
enemies of the blight bo secured, ac
cording to Forester Hosmcr, was quo
ted as stating that tho orthesla had
already Bpread to a number of plants
besides lantnna. AlthougU the dan
ger from this blight was nlroady as
suming largo proportions, Forester
Hosmcr was of the opinion that the
cattlemen of Hawaii would object to
ony eradicating efforts on tho part
of the Hoard. These men. It was said,
believed tho blight to be tho only
agent that would limit tho growth ol
A minute description of how the
orthesla affected tho lantana as com
pared with what the natural Insect
enemies of tho plant would do, wat
given by Mr. Glffard. In his opinion
tho blight did not provent the spread
of lantana, on account of tho fact
that it did not touch embryonic
fccods. However, tho insects would
so clog up the plant that tho forma
tion of seeds was prevented. The
matter was finally referred to the
Committee on Entomology. It will
also bo brought to tho notlco of Dr.
Two forest reserves wero created,
one to bo known as the West Mau
Forest Reserve and tho other as the
Walaha Spring Forest Reserve, b
icsolutlons to that effect introduced
by Geo. II. Carter.
After considerable discussion on
various matters, tho following report
from Forester Hosmor was read and
approved by the Hoard:
Honolulu, Hawaii, Jan. 1G, 100S.
Hoard of Commissioners of Agricul
ture nnd Forestry, Honolulu,
Gentlemen: Ono of tho forest re
esrve projects that for some time has
been before mo Is tho question of cre
ating a reserve, in the District ot
South Konu, Island nnd County of
Hawaii. During the early autumn of
1907 I mado an oxtended Investiga
tion ot tho forest lands In that dis
trict, seeing as much of tho forest ns
posslhlo from existing trulls, and In
goneral getting In touch with tho
South from Hookena tho district Is
practically undeveloped. Except for
a narrow belt along tho government
road, that hardly anywhoro reaches
above the 2000-foot contour line, the1
higher land Is heavily forested; and
even tho cultivated area Is not con
tinuous, for ancient lava fields and
more rccont, well-defined Hows con
fine tho good soil to pockets and ko
pukas of varying bIzo. In many of
these tho soil Is rich and of high
productive capacity, but their loca
tion Is known to but few persons and
what llttlo accurato information
there Is Is not generally available
At Irregular Intervals lava Hows,
mainly of tho "n-a" type, extend to
nnd bolow tho govcrnmont road.
Many of theso nro covered with obla
lehua trees of large size and excel
lent quality, giving to what would
P. E. R. Strauch
otherwise be barren stretches a val
uable crop. On the flows the oil la
tends to form n pure stand, but else
where It Is found a mixture with tho
other trees characteristic of tho low
er forest zone. At about 4000 feet
r.ll through South Kona Is an abrupt
Una of demarcation between the ohla
forest below and tho kna belt, which
extends on up lo about 0500 feet.
Higher than this ohla again appeal 3
but nt this elevation It Is scrubby In
type, ns Is also such scattering koa
as Is found In mixture with it. This
formation runs up into tho great pi I
vatcly owned land of Kahuku.
Owing tu tho absence of perma
nently running streams and tho scar
city oven of springs, the chief vnluo
of tho forest In South Kona rests In
its commercial importance, and be
cause of the growing demands for
ohla railroad tics, ohla as well ns
oa becomes n factor to bo reckoned
with, I am confident that rightly
lumbered tho forest on tho govern
ment land In South Kona can bo
made to yield n considerable revenue
to the Territory nnd nt the samo time
bo brought under n system of forest
management that will lead to an Im
provement In the condition of tho
forest and Insure future returns ns
well. While this statement applies
particularly to tho area abovo an ele
vation ot 2500 or 3000 feet I bo
llevo It would be to the advantage or
tho Government to include in nny
plan ot forest utilization nil tho gov
ernment forest In South Kona that
has commercial value. In this way
tho Btands ot ohla on tho lava Hows
that como down to and across the
lovcrnmont road would bo Included
is well as tho ohla and koa maukn.
It is recognized that this depart
ment Is tho appropriate branch of
tho Government to tnko charge ot its
forest, work. The disposition of tho
timber on theso lands is essentially a
forest problem. Therefore, In my
judgment nil ot tho government
lands In South Kona on which thorc
is now a commercial forest should bo
set apart at nny rate, for tho pro3
mt as a forest reserve. To accom
plish this It will bo necessary that
tho boundaries of a number of tho
lands bo run, that certain points be
ocated and thnt some other survoy
.ng work be done, such as the loca
tion of tho principal topographic
features. I have taken up tho mattct
In a tentative way with Mr. Wall,
ho Government Surveyor, and tlnd
that woro an official request made it
vould probably be possible for ono of
nls assistants to start almost nt onco
to do such work as may be required,
In order that no tlmo muy bo lost 1
therofore recommend thnt tho Hoard
tuthorizo this request.
Thero Is an additional reason why
luch n Burvey as Is hero proposed
.hould be mado now. As has been
jointed out there is much good land
iclongtng to tho Government In
touth Kona but at present thero Is
cry little accurato Information
ivnllable In regard to Its character
and condition. With tho dovclop
nent of tho district through the
ipening up of better nioanB of trann
nortatlon of which there now seems
jronilsc will como n demand for
'his land. A comprehenslvo survey,
including the location of the bound
irles and of tho main topographic
eatures is Imperatively neoded bc
toro any appraisal or allotment can
bo mado. The proposed survey will
mako available thebo data as well as
Oioso In regard to t!iu forest.
If tho Hoard approves this recom
mendation I shall, uftcr the survey Is
made submit a more detailed report
a tho forest situation In South Ko
na. Until raoro Information 1b
tvallablo than at present It Is im
possible to recommend accurately
what boundaries should bo chosen ns
tho limits of tho projected reserve.
