CARTER'S MAPS AHE PRAISED. Local Survey Department Congratu lated r'n)it Largo Amount ' of Data. 'Th New Mf.ps of Hawah ' l3lho title of the following editorial In the New York Sun of April 21. In the llrst part It repeats a Joke of an. lint local flavor, relating a condition ot things many jars antedating an'.tx- atlon, also gives credit ostensibly to the Federal authorities for tho work of a puroly local government depart ment: "Tho King ot tho Hawaiian Islands began the Eulvov of parts of Ms do main in 1871. His survey department consisted of two men, two boys and a few laborers, and tho work they did vas slipshod and often ludicrous. The head of the department, an old sur veyor in the United States, objected to tho Hawaiian jungle and never entered it except along well beaten paths if he could help it. He was accus tomed to send an assistant ahead out of sight and nlmost out of hearing and then the fellow who had beaten his way through the vegetation would yell at the top of his voice. The surveyor would forthwith sight his Instrument at that yell. The chainmen would then measure the distance in a go as you please fashion; they took tho easiest route theycould find to the spot where the advance guard still stood emitting supplementary yelps for their guidance. This Is one illustration of the pio neer methods of island surveying, and the results of course were very crude and Imperfect. Tho disputes over property lines were endless, and con fusion was worse confounded In many of tho regions which had been sur veyed when our flag was raised over the Islands. As soon as the authority of the United States was established It set about bringing order out of the chaos. The primary purpose was to ascertain the exact areas and location of the Government lauds, but the public need was so great that the work was ex tended to Include the making of all maps and all the exact measurements and records needed for public pur poses. The general result Is now pro duced on nine fine maps in colors show ing each of the nine counties ot the Territory and appended to the govern nois annual report recently printed in Washington. "To make these maps the Islands were covered by a triangulatloii scheme after the method of the Coast and Geodetic Survey. The coast lines were surveyed and maps were made of all the Islands excepting a few rocks and islets that are of no practical Im portance. Judged by the most rcflred standards tho wcrk is not abovo criti cism but It is the greatest geographical work yet accomplished In Hawaii, u proving to be of the highest utility and Is receiving rlio warmest com mendation from the ueiuiiallc map staff at Washington. "It Is a pleasure to look at these maps because they give so much and such varied Information. There are plenty ot areas In our homo domain of which maps as good as these cannot yet be made because detailed surveys havo not been run. "The position of every school house and post office in the Island Is given. Wo see In green tho distribution, the shape and the extent of the areas of public land, In yellow tho homestead settlement tracts, in white bordered with yellow the areas of grazing lands and In white bordered with blue the forest reserves. Other colors and sym bols show the location and extent or the sisal and sugar plantations, the unreserved forest lands, the Federal reservations and the wot lands adapt ed for rice and taro. From these Bheets wo get a good Idea of tho dis tribution and extent of the agricultural industries, the great resources ot tho territory; and we are impressed with the fact, which the maps clearly reveal, that an Important part of the total area Is not adapted for any kind of cul tivation. "The Governor's report says that the land still embraced In tho public do main Is about 1,700,000 acres, most or which Is not adapted for tillage, and this only when roads, costly to (con struct, make the good lauds accessible. The cream of tho Island areVs and the most easily reached public lands became private property long ago. "The survey department of Hawaii Is to be congratulated upon the large amount ot accurate Information It has collected. If the mechanical produc tion of these data on tho map sheets does not represent the best ot carto graphy It Is at least well done; and tho study of this product is recom mended to all who would like to see for themselves that a really good map Is an admirable short cut to tho ac quirement of geographical information." E TO DEVELOP RICE Vice President Fairbanks nt Chicago Denounces Socialistic Teaching. DYNAMITE SUSPECT RELEASED. Disarming Hostile Filipinos Typhoid In Russian Prison Kills Hundreds. MANILA, May 11. The Philippine government Is being urged to niako the necessary arrangements for a government loan to extend the Irriga tion systems throughout tho islands In "aid of the local rico Industry. It Is estimated that ten million pesos will be required to Irrigate enough addi tional lands to render the Islands In dependent of foreign rice.

When Nelson R. Riley of New York went to Honolulu last fall, he bought a new Studebaker "30" car from the Studebaker branch In San Francisco and took It with him to the Islands. The machine attracted a good deal of attention in Hawaii, especially as it was the first car ever seen there em ploying the make-and-break system ot Ignition. Mr. Riley writes that the quiet running qualities of his car have been particularly commented upon and its noiselessness has earned for it the name of "Tho Gliding Car." Mo tor Field, Denver, Col. CONNECT CUT E Under tho heading "The House Not Awake to Dangers," the Bridgeport. Conn., Farmer says: "Magazines havo for several months published many notable articles by ex port writers, all tending to show how unprepared our nrmy Is for war. how Insufficient our navy would bo found, and how quite possible a contest with Japan Is under present conditions. Mr. Reuterdahl mentioned certain delects in our battleships, which would make them Inefficient, and the practice cruise of tho lleet has tended to prove the criticism well-founded. Another writer has shown by pictures the skeleton-like character of our army, and Indicted tho ease with which an invading army could make a landing on our shores, particularly on the Pa cific coast. Who has forgotten the "scare" in this country when four Spanish cruisers, during our war over Cuba, sailed this way from Spain? "Yet, tho House, on Wednesday, vot ed down a proposition to build four oattleships, as recommended by the President, by 199 to S3, and provided for the construction of but two, and that grudgingly. Congress evidently does not realize the actual situation, and Is as clearly devoted principally to a thwarting of the President's wishes. "The Farmer is not habitually an alarmist, but It does believe that thero Is grave danger of a war with Japan over our Philippine and Hawaiian pos sessions so soon as that nation recov ers from "tho effects of Its war with Russia and has succeeded In construct ing a navy ot adequate power, In which labor It Is now very strenuously en gaged. There Bhould bo somo prepara tion here for this eminently probable event. It Is as true now as In Wash ington's time that adequate prepara tion for war is a surety of peace.'' STOMACH TROUBLE.
