The Hotiso Commlttco on OO

receded from Its former post-
tlon, adopted tlio leport of tlie
O Huli-i'ommUtee, and lecom-
mends that Congress appro-
prlnto nearly three million dol-

harbor entrance, tho construe- 4
' tlon of a dry-dock, and tho he-
ginning of work which Is des-
tlncd to make Pearl Harbor

up In "committee, tho attitude
, of tho members was unfavor-
nhlo and tho appropriation for
Pearl Harbor was cut out. Hut
It 13 evident that Btrong Inllu-
enco has been brought to bear
to change the attitude, with
tho result that the committee
has completely turned around
und now recommends practl-
cully all that was asked.
It is not hnrd to guess tho
reason for tho change. Hn-
wail has strong friends In

-r lluentlal of them ail is tho
President. Perhaps Roosevelt
Is not animated by any feel-
lng of personnl friendship for

derstand the necessity of

HAS CHEERING NEWS
Rain Partially Damaged
Like most of the plautntlqns which
liavu so fur held their uununl meet
ings, Klhcl, at its annual meeting
this forenoon, reported that the 1807
crop had fallen below the estimate
awing.. to the heavy rains last year.
Mnnnger McLeod's report read In part
Tho weather throughout tho year
has been fnvornble for growing
crops; during tho earlier months of
tho year wo had good rains and a
plentiful supply of fresh water In our
ditches. No pumping was required
until tho 1st of May, when we had
to start up all of our pumps at botl.
Crop of 1907. Tho harvesting or
this crop was begun Feb. lDth, and
finished July 22nd. Tho estimate of
this crop was 4,200 tons and tho act
ual output for the year was 3,917.
G46 tons sugar. The shortage was
undoubtedly caused by tho very
1 eavy rains in January starting a
vigorous growth in the-cane then bo
lng milled, and consequently render
ing a very low purity of Juice.
Crop of 1908. Wo commenced har
vesting this crop on Jan. 20th, 1908.
Wo have 204 ncres of plant cane, 254
acres of first ratoons nnd 2G2 acres
of third rntoons, making the total
nrea to be milled for this crop 710
acres. I estimate this crop 4.400
tons of commercial sugar.
Crop of 1909. l-'or this wo have
planted 24.1,80 acres nnd have now
under cultivation 314.35 acres of
first ratoons, 101.35 of second ra
toons, and 92.75 acres of third ra
toons. The planting of this crop
was completed July 22d, 1907, and
nil of tho ratoon cane taken under
cultivation nt tho proper season.
All of tho enno for the 1909 crop

tilizer not later than Nov. 20th and
tho becand application will be com
pleted not Inter than March 20th,
1908, leavjng only the addition of ni
trates to the fields of this crop to be
attended to during the harvest sea-
son of 1908.
