Molokai Land May
Be Acquired For
Forest Reserve j
George FreelandAW. F. Pogue j
and Joaquin Garcia Named
Appraisers for. the Terri-j
tory. !
(ASSOCIATED rKKSS)
HONOLULU, Sept. 23 William F.
Pogue, Georee Freeland, and Joaquin
Garcia or Maui, were named a board
of appraisers today by Governor Wal
lace It. Farrington, looking to the ac
quirement for the government forest
reserve system of about 1601 acres,
more or less, of mountain land, run
ning up to the rim of the Kalaupapa
pali. Mr. Pogue was named by the
governor to act as chairman.
The Molokai land in question was
once heavily wooded but. by reason
of long continued use as pasture, has
now become almost denuded of trees.
The land is at present a part of the
Meyer estate.
On the map of Molokai it shows
as a part of that islands forest raj
serve, but has never been fenced and
no attempt has been made to keep
slock from the lands with the result
that cattle have had and still hrve free
run of it. The territory now pro
poses to acquire it, either by the
usual condemnation proceedings, that
is applicable to such instances, or, by
an equitable exchange. The latter
method would require a special act
of congress.
"Whichever choice is made," the
governor said, "it is first necessary
to determine what amount of money
would be involved.
Important Water Supply
In a report to the governor, C. S.
Judd, superintendent of forestry,
wvites that the lands are important
as a source of water supply, because
they lie at the edge of the cloud belt
and their water producing capacity
is manifested by the permanent body
of water called "Meyer's Lake" near
Puu Olelo and by numerous springs
further mauka.
"All of IIiprp lands were at one
limn heavily forested but, because of
continuous grazing, the forest on
. thcin has now almost entirely dis
appeared. It is important for water
conservation purposes that the forest
on this area be brought back. This
is particularly so because of the plans
of the Hawaiian Homes commission,
which contemplate the development
of reservoirs and ditches on these
lands. Every gallon of water that
can be saved here will be used to
advantage on the dry farming lands
at the lower elevations.
Potent Streams
"From a water supply standpoint
this is a highly important portion of
Molokai, because, while the area is
small, only about one mile" square,
it is Bubject to heavy rainfall, while
from its location the Waihanau is a
stream that could readily be diverted
and put to use. Speaking of this
stream, the Waihanau, Lindgren
says: "Swamps line the borders and
much water comes in from springs on
the sides of the abrupt canyon in
which it flows I conclude that the
Btreams can be relied on for 3,250,000
gallons per 24 hours from November
1 to June 1; for 1,000,000 gallons dur
ing June and July, and for at least
100,000 gallons from August to No
vember 1."
"When wajLer is as badly needed
and ns valuable as it is on Molokai,
it is not good policy to use such an
important catchment area as this for
grazing. On a good portion of upper
Kahanu the native forest would prob
ably come back naturally if cattle
were excluded. Lower down artifi
cial planting would be necessary. "
Herrin Grand Jury
In Special Session
Indict Two Hundred
(ASSOCIATED I'HESS)
MARION, 111., Sept. 23 Two hun
dred and fourteen indictments were
returned today by the special grin 1
jury, investigating the. Herrin mine
massacre.
'Jhe jury arraigned Adjutant Gen
eral lilack for his 'ailuie to Fend
troops to the Herrin district and
cr'ticized Sheriff Tha.Mon and tiie
lota' police for their alleged failuio
to protect life and property.
Oi the 214 indictmenrj returned, 41
charged murder, 593 chaigrl con
spiracy to commit murder, 54 charged
assault with the intent to commit
murder and 58 charged conspiracy
and rioting. Sheriff Tbaxton is a
member of the miners' union and a
candidate for the county treasurer
ship. The jury's report said that the at
tack on the mine which resulted in the
death of 22 persons, was planned in
advance and that .Sheriff Thaxton had
plenty of time in which to learn ol it.
Tiie report declares that hardware
stores in the town had been ransacked
for arms and munitions as the result
of a telegram from John L. Lewis,
"f-sident of the United Mine Workers
.t America, declaring that the non
union men working die mine were
strike breakers.
Propagator Of Rare j
Hibiscus Will Visit
Fifth Annual Fair'
John Walker, the Honolulu contract
or, and said to be the greatest ptopa
gator of the hibiscus flower that the
Territory lias known, has lent his ser
vices to the Fair committee on Moral
and cut plant exhibits and will act as
a judge on that committee, according
to a report fiom Giant Bailey, chair
man of the floral committee of the
Fifth Annual Maui County j-'air.
For the first day of the Fair David
I laughs, nurseryman for the territorial
hoard of forestry with headquarters in
Honolulu, will also act as judge of
lloral exhibits.
Mr. Walker has recently produced
by years of cross polleniza! ion the
double while hibiscus that has since
been pronounced one of the rarest
works of horticulture. A specimen of
this hibiscus has been sent to Grant
llailey and will be exhibited in the
floral booth at the coming fair. Some
idea of the knowledge in horticulture
obtained by Mr. Walker may be gained
in the fact that of 16 known varieties
of the hibiscus known, Mr. Walker lias
produced 10 of these. He is now at
work propagating a single and U:mbl3
blue hibiscus and though some horti
culturists, considered experts, have de
clared it impossible. Mr. Walker de
clares that in 10 or 12 years time cross
polleniation and budding will bring
forth Ihe variety he desires.
Mr. Walker will be on Maui for two
weeks after the Fair and during that
time will be very willing to communi
cate his knowledge of the hibiscus to
the people on Maui who so desire.
Some years ago he was guest of this
Island during a Knights of Pythias
convention and wishes to return the
cordiality shown him at that time. Im
mediately after the Fair and for the
following two weeks he will be the
guest of Mr. Grant llailey and Mr. J.
T. Fanlom.

Lion's Share; Campaign
Plans Changed.
WainiUu voters had a chance to
hoar two of the Republican candi
dates toi delegate to congress Ml
Market street, Saturday night, the
rally developing into one for those
candidates and the legislative candi
dates will have their hearing later in
the campaign from the same plat
form. Besides Lyman and King only
the house aspirants from the outside
(list rids and John Iloopale were heard
Plans Revised
Campaign plans shifted rapidly and
Without notice at last week end. On
the return from Kalaupapa it was de
cided to abandon the trip that was
to have been taken Sunday to Molo
kai and thence to the liana district
on the Makaivva. There were meet
ings held in West Maui Thursday
night instead of Friday and on the
latter night there was a hastily ar
ranged meeting at Taia. Saturday
night came the meeting at Wailuku
for which there had been little pub
licity so the crowd was nothing like
those that turned out in the Baldwin
campaign.
Lyman Speaks First
Norman Lyman was the first speak
er on Saturday night and spoke at
length both in English and Hawaiian,
the latter not being an interpretation
of his first remarks but differing quite
materially. In his English speech
Lyman told of his experience and his
qualifications for the office for which
he seeks the nomination. He pledg
ed himself to work for the best in
terests of all the people of Hawaii nei
especially in the matter of securing
appropriations for roads and for
reboots and funds adequately to
carry out the Hawaiian Homes pro
ject which he criticised as being too
small at present to achieve important
results immediately since only ran or
a dozen faniili. s were to be put on
the land.
John Hoopale followed and alter
him came Senator King, the othpr
candidate for delegate, John Wis. not
being represented at the meeting hy
proxy. '
King Pressnts Case
King also explained his qualifica
tions for the office, his knowledge of
the needs of the territory, his legis
lative experience, his acquaintance
with the mainland. He pledged him
self to work for the best good of all
to strive to get Hawaii its right of
inclusion in appropriation bills and
generally to have its needs met. He
went at some length into his record
as a senator answering some charges
which he says had been made by
lieutenants of Lyman. He urged all
voters to go to the polls.
By the time he closed it was late
and the audience drifted rapidly away
betore the other speakers had time
to address them.
Wise Has Able Proxy
At the Paia meeting Senator Rice
spoke for John Wise, answering
charges that a large campaign fund
was being raised for Wise in Honolu
lu. Rice said he saw Wise in Queen's
Hospital about three weeks before
and did not think ho would live un
til after election. He saw him again
about the middle of this week and he
was better so the speaker believed
he would recover, but he was unable
to speak for himself.
Every man in public life makes
friends and enemies and if there is
a large campaign fund being raised
huu s oent on vvise'a hohair it i i
ing done by Wise's friends. The fact
that he has such friends, men who
stand by him in time of sickness and
seek to conduct a campaign for him
at their own expense speaks volumes
for the man who has won such friend
ship. Today the party goes to Hana for
the campaign in that district, return
ing tomorrow on the Kilauea.
Speak At Puunene
On Monday night the candidates
held a meeting at Puunene. Jack
Walsh presided and introduced each
candidate that was present. As they
stepped on I lie platform Walsh intro
duced Goodness, Clink, Paschoal, lei
reira, Holstein, Hantina and Kahoo
kele. Four candidates addressed the hug.
gathering. Norman Lyman spoke of
his qualifications for filling the seat of
delegate at Washington. John 'ir'iwn,
vocational instructor at the I'liuneiie
school spoke on the behalf of John
Wise who, he said, was convule scin,i
from an operation in Honolulu and was
Iheieiore unable to speak for hiaistlf.
John Hoopale of Kauai spol;, urg
ing the nomination of Norman Lyman
and was followed by Jack Kaonohi
who seeks nomination to the Terri
torial house ol representatives.
