President Taft appears, to hao
made no sensational declarations in
his first luessage to Congress deal

of the government.
He has been standing pat on the

by the special session of Congress.
The people will ogrce with him

Can Grow The Tree
With Profit In
I'orcstry experts In theso Islands
have admitted that thu growing or
(ileal) plus treis hero for purel) lo
cal' consumption, such us: llrevvood,
posts and poles, will pa) thoso hav
ing suitable lands. Where llicto
exists largo tracts of level land and
where tho Mill Is deep and wliete
thete Is a continuous natural sub-
irrlgatiun, eucnl)ptus trees should
do well In theso Islands.
Contrary to tho popular supposi
tion, these trees require enormous
quantities of water, If what Callfor-
nlans term a "maximum growth" Is
to bo secured. Years ago, cucul)ptus
trees were planted on tho Pall and
other parts of the Island, but their
giuwth has been slow.
Some icmarkahlc tests have been
made with eucal)ptus which have
proven some ot tho species to be tho
strongest woods In tho world. Tho
strength of tho weakest of tho West
Australian eucaljpttiR has been
proven by tho government tests to bo
equal to that of hickory and 20 per
cent greater than that ot tho best
oak. Piles driven In seaside wharves
have, utter sevent) years' service,
been withdrawn and found to be
perfectly sound. Telegraph and tele
phone poles tested after twenty
)ears service gavo results only S
per cent below' the averugo ot un
used seasoned Umbels.
Experiment has plovcn that It Is
necessary to plant eucalyptus In
lands which abound In humus, or
whero rank herbaceous weeds pre
dominate. All theso featuies are
lound right here in Oaliu and neigh
boring Islands, so that there Is room
