HERE TO STAY
Governor Frear Declares the
Chance of Extermination
There Is little or no prospect of a
campaign against tho Mediterranean
fruit fly being successful on Oahu ac
cording to a statement mndo this
morning by Governor Frear and ho
declaied that nil of tho efforts will
now be directed toward preventing
tho pest from reaching tho other Isl
nnds of the group.
The embargo placed upon Island
fruit by the California authorities bo-
rauso of tho fly's presence on Oahu
is admitted by Governor Frear to be
1 severo blow to tho small producer.
Ho states that tho only possible me
thod to combat the ravages of tho fly
or to exterminate it would bo to des
troy nil of tho rlpo fruit upon which
It could feed. This Is now an impos
sibility because tho fly has spread
to tho guavas.
Tho California authorities did not
learn about tho fly's presence In !!
wait by finding it on fruit shipped
from the islands but were Informed
of Its presence hero by the entomo
logist of the Bureau of Agriculture anj

Islands will now bo combattcd vigor
