This talk doesn't help anyone or any
Many of our readers will remember
that some jeurs ago there was iiilte
a heated sclentlllc discussion between
Dr. .hired 0 Smith, then director of
lie United States Agricultural exper
iment station, and Dr I'erklns, of the
'lantern' experiment station, on the
.'dative meiits of sprujlng or pnra
iltes fur the destruction of plant
If at that time the Planters' Asso
latlun had allowed Itself to have
een sidetracked from the pursuit of
he leaf hopper according to the cam
mlgu methods outlined by the Held
nen of the planters station, It would
uie been In danger of being brought
o u standstill, the leaf hopper con
equently Increasing In numberB and
lestructle force, and an Industry
vutiltl have languished. Wo would
lot Btiggest that the spraying method
vould have been a failure, but It Is
ertuln that the dllllcultlcs would huvu
teen doubled by u division of forces
n the fuce of a common enemy, ami
ho planters had hesitated to follow
he advice of their "Held men." Ar
iument could not fall, at that point,
o do moro harm than good.
In Honolulu's sanitation campaign
ho sanitarians of the United StateB
.overnment have given their opinions
in the best course tb pursue und ord
)rs have been issued accordingly.
Neither Dr. Scudder, the specialist on
norats and chic virtue, nor others
nore or less expert in science, can
iclp the situation by criticising und
piestlonlng the necessity of the mens
ires ndopted by those In charge. Ho
sn't adding anything to tho fund of
luman Information, lie Is hindering
'the men on the Job."
Considerable sympnthy can bo felt
'or the Ignorant because they don't
Inovv any better, but one cannot fall
if a sense of pity for a man like Dr.
Scudder, who ought to know, and from
lis wide experience unquestionably
loes know, that his Influence in this
naiter on the thoughtless und ignor
ing Is evil, and his attitude will bo
Itioted us an excuse for the perpetu
itlon of evils against which he
reaches and declares himself nt all
in3 us opposed. The tlmo will not
ie fur distant when lie will find his
views used us a bolster by the man
responsible for Insanitary and gencr
illy unhcalthful tenements. Of course
Mr. Scudder will strenuously deny the
-hnrgo that he Is helping or In sym
pathy with this man. Hut the dam-
igo Is done, und denials won't count
is ugnlnst a general example.
We must follow the orders of tho
sunltutlon leaders If we are to get
anywhere in making of Honolulu the
Model Town of the Pacific.
AVARICE IS "MIDDLE CUSS."
Avarice is a vice of the middle
classes. This will bo especially pleas
ing to the men of great wealth who
uro so "near" that they mako dollars
shout und eagles scream; also equally
displeasing to the "average men" gen
erally rated as "middle class."
A French nerve specialist, Dr. Ito
guez do Fursac, has written a psycho
logical study of avarlco, which he de
