Gentlemen: Your Commltteo on For
rstry havo received from Mr. It. S.
Hosmer, Superintendent of Forestry, a
report upon a proposed forest reservo
along tho west slopo of tho KooUu
Range, extending from tho boundary
of tho Honolulu district to and Including
tho land of Wnhiawa, on tho la-land
The proposed reservo lies entirely
within tho Ewa district oxecot ono
land, which Is In tho
district of Walanne, and Wnhiawa,
which Is In tho district of Waialua.
Tho mauka boundary Is tho crest of
the Koolau Range of mountains and
the makal boundary Is a line drawn
along approximately tho present lower
edge of tho forest and ranging from
an approximate elevation abovo sea.
level of from 800 to 1000 feet.
Tho total area of tho proposed reserve
Is approximately 28,650 acres of
which approximately 4769 acroi Is government
land not now under lease nnd
available for Immediate segregation
as a forest reserve.
With very limited exceptions tho land
lying above tho forest line Is so broken
with deep gulches with almost precipitous
sides, that tho land Is unavailable
for agricultural purposes and of
but little value for pasturage purposes.
Even If the land proposed to be reserved
were much better suited for cul.
tlvatlon and pasturage than it Is your
committee are of opinion that it would
be wise economy to reserve it for for
est purposes as the lands lying in tho
Ewa basin nre of value almost solely
by reason of the water which origin
ates In the area proposed to bo reserved.
The present annual output of sugar
from tho district which depends upon
this watershed for almost Its entire
water supply Is approximately $6,000,-000.
The sugar cano Is raised In tho
district referred to only up to an elevation
of GOO feet abovo sea level. Tho
area between this level nnd tho proposed
forest reservo Is pineapple land
of the highest quality. There Is now
under cultivation In pineapples upwards
of 1000 acres with every Indication
that that area will be very rapidly
A very largo proportion of tho bana
rain waters nnd to protect nas and rlco produced In the Territory
uiko comes iruin liiu Hauiu uiairiui..
Tour commltteo consider tho proposed
reservo to bo the most Important
watershed of Its sire In tho Territory.
They are further of opinion
that not only should the reservo bo
mado but that an earnest attempt
should bo made, at as early a date aa
practicable, to reforest tho Blopes below
tho present forest lino In order to,
ns far as possible conservn tho rainfall
and prevent tho rapid flow to tho
sea of tho storm water so as to make
the Bamo nvnllablo for longer periods
It is the belief of the commltteo that
tho heartiest may be ex
peeled from the owners and lessees of
private lands lying within tho proposed
reserve not only In connection with
establlshlni? tho reservo but In con
nection with tho proposed
Mr. Low, manager of tho Honolulu
Plantation, has already volunteered to
enrry out n tree planting program on
tho lands back of his plantation, not
only within but below the proposed for
est lines. Such tree planting program
should recelvo overy possible asslstanco
from this board.
Tour committee nro of opinion that
tho reserve recommended by Forester
Hosmer should bo recommended by
tho board to the Governor for format

I van notified about 3 o'clock

that assistance wn required, Taking
threo laborers from the nurrery I nt
once Marled for Tantalus, walking t.p
by the Hound Top trail with two men,
while tho third with the buggy containing
nddltlonnl tools went around
by the road.
"Arriving at tho nre a few minutes

laborers, had got It under control,

In a number of Btandlng trees and old

would have been sources of danger to
the adjoining forest. Senator Dickey
Informed me that his man was burning
brush near his new house, that the

although he had tried hard to stop It.
It had still spread. A back nro had
been started, but the namea got
around it and rendered it useless.
"Hequestlng Senator Dickey to Isikt

In the other direction extinguishing the

side toward the mountain, where ther
was more danger of the nre again getting
away. About five o'clock the Japanese,
thinking that with our coming
there was no further need for them,
knocked off nnd returned home. The
laborers from the nursery continued to
work until half-past six, when It became
too dark to Bee any longer, we
then returned to the city. Early on
Tuesday morning two of the laborers
went back to the nre and worked all
the forenoon In putting out the nre "nt
IKiInts where It wns still smouldering.
From Senator Dickey's account the
nre started about noon, though I did
not Btop long enough to discuss details
with him. After leaving Senator
Dickey at about half-past four o'clock
I did not see him again. The men sent
up on Tuesday morning report that no
one beside themselves was nghting tho

did all that was possible to stop the
lire while It was actually burning by
getting all the available men to work
"In this, connection I wish to ngoln
point out that the danger of a forest
fire does not ceaso when Its active
progress has been stopped. As long as
ihere remain spots where the Are continues
to smoulder In stumps, old logs
or In the humus, there Ih danger, for
If a wind springs up sparka from such
Rpots may be carried considerable distances
to start new nres in adjoining
sections. Heally, the critical part of
forest fire nghting comes when the tire

many persons, thinking it is out. go

never s.ifo to say that a forest nre

"The area burned over Is altogether
In tho Manoa watershed. As the nre
was mainly In dry grass and weeds,
and was Htopped before getting Info
the forest, comparatively little dam-ago
was done, only a few small koa
trees being burned."
The report wns ordered nied.
FOREST FIRES TOO PREVALENT.
Mr. Olffard thought ihere were too
many fires near Honolulu. There hod
been a law passed forbidding carelessness
In setting out fires In the last session,
but no one had been prosecuted
under It. Senator Dickey had done
what ho could after this fire had got
away, but It should have been watch
ed at first. There had been gross
carelessness. He (Mr. Glffnrd) had
warned the Senator's man about fires,
but the man only heeded tho warning
until he hnd got out of Bight. The man
ucted under the Senator's orders. Tho
credit for putting out the fire belonged
to the men employed at the various
Tantalus residences. Unless somo notion
were taken regarding these fires
people would think the board a lot of
Mr. Thurston thought Mr. Dickey
guilty of exceedingly reprehensible
Mr. Glffard reported having stopped
a Jap last week who was firing a brush
heap us big as a small house. The
Japs were In the habit of setting out
fires to smoke out wild bees nnd were
careless about It. He suggested writing
a warning letter to Senator
Mr. Thurston thought the printed
warnings posted up should be sufficient,
but did not oppose the letter mo.
In the discussion It was brought out
that the law empowered the hiring of
men for fighting forest fires, but there
was no appropriation to pay them.
Another Item was thnt there was no
fire warden for the Tantalus district.
On motion of Mr. Carter, seconded
by Mr. Holloway, Mr. Glffard was
as the Tantalus fire warden,
und It wns furthVr resolved thnt nn
firs should be allowed In the Tantalus
heights, without the warden's written
permission, for a period of 12 months.
