It. veteran who holdB third place and may yet gain second. ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo roar has come up from great Kauai. This morning's mall brought a deluge of vehement protests from the Garden Island candidates against clos ing the contest to them four days ahead of the Oahu hustlers. They In sist that they should be allowed to work up till Saturday's mail closes, by which their votes would reach Hono lulu early Sunday morning. Some protests have also come down from Hawaii, where contestants claim they should be allowed to send their last results in by the Wilhelmlna's mail, also reaching Honolulu on Sun day morning. In view of the obvidus justice of tho complaints, and the disadvantages which the outside island workers aro subject owing to handicap of distance, the contest department has conceded their claim to consideration and will permit their votes arriving by Sunday morning's mails to bo counted. A wireless to this effect was this morn ing sent to these outside candidates. This change in the first announced plans will make it impossible to an xounco the results of tho big $300(1 prize contest on next Saturday even ing, as had been intended, and instead the prfzes will bo awarded by tho judges at 9 o'clock on Monday morn- Ling. at the contest, office. Local Votes Pau After 5 O'clock. There will be no subscriptions 01 ballots received from Honolulu candi dates after 5 o'clock Saturday even ing, at which time the contest office will close. This puts all tho contest ants on practically the same footing as regards time, for the mall from Kauai closes about G o'clock on Satur day evening. Announcement of Count Monday, For the reason also that the candi dates of the outside islands will not be ablo to receive today's paper be fore tho contest is practically at an end, it has been decided not to niak any further announcement of tho standing of contestants until next Monday morning. The Star does not wish the suspicion of oven the sligh est unfairness to be held by any con testant after the big race is over, and inasmuch as Honolulu candidates Would have the advantage of knowin how their standing compared with their competitors, while the workers on the other Islands would not ha this advantage it has seemed best not to publish the list and standing of con testants today, as has been the cu torn. Double Count Week Closed. At 8 o'clock this morning the doubt count of credit ended. There was a lively rush of candidates yesterd afternoon to take advantage of this extra count, and- a number of sub scriptlons were over turned in befor 8 o'clock this morning by early risln workers. Interest in the final results is reach ing the Intense stage, and It seems evl dent that the hard work will be kept up by most of the contestants right up to the last minute. which is desired. Honolulu has such i la book store, it is not meant uy tins that Honolulu hns a bookstore which as on hnnd all of the hooks which aro In print today that is something Impossible. But Honolulu does have bookBtoro that Is allv6 to the wants of the book buying public, and goes to no end of trouble and expense to have tho best and the most deslrablo books on all subjects In their store. Tho Crossroads Bookshop has mndo soino great strides In tho past year In tho big problem of giving the book buyers of tho world Just what they want. Tho term book buyers of the1 orld Is used because tho trade of this establishment Is, greatly augment ed by the tourists that pour Into this lty continually.

Ultimately, on the understanding that his name should not be published, the citizen related the facts of his In terview with the governor. Tho main advice he tendered the chief executive was that correspondence with United States consuls In certain parts of South America, whose addresses wore given, which would cost only a few cents for Btationory and postage, might very likely elicit information of the availability of fruit fly parasites in those countries for Importation to fight the pest In Hawaii. "There is a railway over the Andes from Buenos Ayres to Valparaiso," ho said In repeating the matter to tha reporter, "and communications would not take more than fivo week' be tween Honolulu and the places men tloned. . "When comparatively a young man," tho citizen said, "I traveled oxtensive- Iv in South America and bncamo la- miliar with tho conditions in southern Brazil, at Montevideo (Uruguay), in Paraguay and In Argentina. "The temperature tn ' southern Brazil, from 23 degrees to 30 degrees south latitude, is practically tho same as in these islands. Tho country abounds in many varieties of fruit, and undoubtedly the scores of steam ers plying between the Mediterranean and that coast must have brought the fruit Hy there. Yet that country Is, I believe, freer from fruit and plant pests than any other part of tho world. T should not except even Africa In this statement.
