Rioters Loot and Burn Capital;
Kill Government
(Associated Press Cable.)
BATAVIA, Java, Feb. 4 Breaking out suddenly in an apparently con
certed plan of action, Chinese laborers and others have created a reign of
terror on the Island of Billiton, a Dutch possession, between Borneo and
Sumatra. The rioting Chinese looted and burned the capital, killed the chiof
administrator, an official of the Du'.ch government, and several other orfi- .
cials and traders. They are in possession of the islands. This part of the
Malay archipelago is infested with Chinese pirates, and the Dutch govern
ment, it is expected, will be forced to ssnd war vessels to the scene to put
down the uprising. '

JUAREZ, Mex., Feb. 4. The revolu

the city. The streets have been ordered
cleared of all orowds, and the business
houses to keep closed until a settle

money shall bo spent will be met with

selves. The spending of the appropri

Important Experiments' Point
to Forward Steps in
Two remarkable series of experi
ments In progress by Director Charier,
F. Eekart, of the Hawaiian Sugar
Planters' Association experiment sta
tion, and Ills capable staff of assis'
ants, are now apparently coming to
a no less; remarkable conclusion. The
conclusion, unless signs fail, is to he
successful, in which case the- sugar
industry pot only of Hawaii but of
other countries as well will be direct
ly benefited.
One of these is a series of expert
tnents with, ,u parasitic enemy of the
cane-borer. The other is a test of
growing cane from seed and by the
processes of selection and elimina
tion producing cane superior to the
present varieties of the islands.
Both of the experiments have been
years in the process. It has-been
more than four years since Mr. Fred
erick Mulr, assistant entomologist at
the station, was sent to New Zea
land to find a parasite for tho des
tructive ca:ie-borer. In the natural
home of the cane-borer, it was ar
gued, a parasite that would destroy
It was sure to he found. This Is a
law of nature, and it held good.
The problem' was not to find the
parasite, but to bring it to Hawaii.
Tho insect was hard to propagate and
even harder to send from its home
In the Antipodes (.o titis Territory. But
by tho patient establishment of relay
stations nt various points, this diffi
culty was filially solved. , To he
solving, however ' Mr.' Mulr devotod
the most enthusiastic and Intense en
deavor, and his labor,, It seems, was
not to be fruitless. '
Up at the experiment station the
parasite has been propagated. That
success Is coming may be argued from
tho fact that the more nearly the arti
ficial condition!) have approached the
natural ones, the more effectively
have the parasites worked, and re
cently they provod deadly enemies of
the cane-borer.

Secretary of Interior Thinks
Well of Plan for Na
tional Park.
(By John E. Monk.)
Following Is a statement given out by
the Interior Department. 'concerning a
bill forwarded by Governor 1-Year to
establish the Kilauea National Park on
the Island of Hawaii:
"Governor W. !'. Freur of Hawaii has
forwarded to the Secretary of tho ln-j
terlor a draft of a bill to establish the
I Kilauea National Park on the Island of
Hawaii. It Is understood the measure
will be Introduced in Congress short
ly by Delegate Kulanlunaole. It is
drafted along lines of similar acts pass
ed by Congress, more particularly those
relating to the Yellowstone National
"It is proposed to create a park to
Include the two large active volcanoes
of Kilauea and Mokuuweovveo, the lat
ter being at the summit uf the high
mountain Maunu I.ou. The greater por
tion of the area, which aggregates
about iti.OOO acres, already Is public
laud. It will be necessary to purchase
some small privately-owned holdings,
and the bill carries for this an appro-,
prlatlon of $50,000.
"These active volcanoes are perhaps
the most notable scenic wonder of tho
Island Territory, and annually ure vls-
Ited by thousands of tourists. The
proposed park would tuke In not mere-j
ly the two volcanoes, but numerous in
teresting deep pit-craters; also sulphur
banks, lava tree moulds and other vol-j
canle forms, In addition to tree-fern1
forests, forests of trees, both large and
small, of many varieties, somo of which
are very rare; and also the haunts of
an unusually large number und variety
of Hawaiian birds.
"The people of Hawaii have discuss
ed the matter for some time and are
heartily In favor of making this a na
tional park. Under the proposed meas
ure, It would be part of the park sys
tem under the Jurisdiction of the Sec
retary of the Interior."

WASHINGTON, Jan. 22. The
whole subject of the disposal of the
waters of the military reservation of
Walauae-Uka will probably go over
until the next session of Congress as
the result of the report of the Sec
retary of War on tho Clarke bill
granting these waters to John T. Mc
Crosson and his associates. The
Secretary In his report, first, holds
that as between the ofTers made to
the government and by the Wahkiwa
Water Company, that made by the
MeCrosson people Is the most advan-t-igueoiis
to the government; and sec
ond, that the rights of the government
to waters there are extremely' valu
able and that he does not know just
how valuable they tire. He therefore
recommends thai action be deferred
so that he may ascertain what the
value Is, and he" asks that action on
the Clarke bill bo deferred until he
is in receipt of tull Information. '
The Wahlawa Water Company subr
niltted brief to the Secretary mak
ing a claim to water rights, clalmln
certain contractiiral rights were ac
quired by the law passed in February
109. The Secretary cited authorities
to show that no water rights were
acquired under that bill.
The Secretary gave an extended
hearing on the - subject at . Attorneys

his office for not less than one year,
unless removed for cause. The resolu
tion was virtually framed by Austin,
but was introduced by Koomon, the
Home P.nle member from Knna.
A strenuous debate followed the In
troduction of the resolution. Koomoa
argued, while moving that it be adopt
ed, that the roads were going from
bad to worse, and the roads In Koua,
for Instance, needed the supervision of
a competent engineer. ,
Heck ley also spoke In favor of the
proposition. All the other counties had
them, and the time hail come when Ha
waii should have one also. In the past,
large amounts of money had been wast
ed, sufficient to have paid for an en
gineer twice over.
