An tampering with tho tariff will
of course be serious to our ojitcrprls

It Is tho opinion of tho medical
mon here that tho Investigation bIh

nlthough It has been recommended to
Congress thnt such n station should
be established Doctor McCoy has
been to tho Settlement for the ex
prcRS purpoRC of looking Into tho
question of a station there and will
mnko n further plea for tho establish
ment of one there, but It Is thought
that tho powers In Washington will
mnko no move In tho mutter nt this
lntrret In the "Fourth".
Interest In the coming fourth nf
Jul) celebration Is on the Inrrense,
nnd through the untiring efforts of
those who hnvo tnken tho matter up
with both hands the city will enjoy
another of the good old-style celebra

Harbor ('oiiwiIhsIoii i'cnicn.
There Is every prospect that tho
next legislature of the Territory will
bo nsked to extend the powers of tho
local Harbor Commission to tho ex
tent thnt it will bo self-sustaining,
and In such event It will bo In n posi
tion to hnndlo all the finances that
rlghjly belong to thnt department. Tho
businessmen thnt have been on tho
Hoard nro under the Impression that
much mora nnd efficient work can bo
dono for tho betterment of the city if
tho handling of tho funds derived from
tho charges to commerce, pilotage,
dockage, etc , Is centered with tho
Commission as well as tho present
power of making contracts for Im
provements nnd now work. Clearly
Bpeaklng, with a closo check on tho
funds tho Commission thinks thnt It
can get better work nt moro reason
able llgurcs than Is dono under tho
present law.
Tho principal piece of work that
tho Commission has In band at pres
ent is the construction of tho big
bulkhead wharf at tho foot or Fort
street. It Is orpectcd that this wharf
will cost In tho neighborhood of $300,
000. Tho noxt legislature will bo
asked for a sufficient sum to com
plete tho structure. Tho plans for
the now wharf are nil made and as
soon as the money from the new bond
Issue Is available tho bids will bo call

On tho opening of tho bids for fur

that tho mainland wns not only mak

captured It with u hid that was below

The Consular Trudo Hoport has tho
following to say concerning rubber
that muy bo of Interest to tho local
growers nnd to local capital interest
ed in foreign plantations:
The Delglan Kongo lias become, al
most overnight, ono of tho chief rubber-
producing countries, Antwerp hns
naturally also become one of tho
rubber markets of tho world Tho
Importations of rubber Into Antwerp
amounted to 4336 tons in 1911, ns
against 4058 tons In 1910. Of theso
Imports, 3176 tons camo from tho Ilel
glan Kongo In 1911 and 3105 tons In
Kxporlnicnta In tapping, recently
mado at the Uotnnlcnl Gardens of 1 la
la, on Ilevcu trees 6 1-2 years old,
gnvo 516 grams of dry rubber per
tree. Other experiments In tapping
mnderclsi'W'huTU nhw gave satisfactory
results, for Instunco nt Homn, Kltoho
la, Coqullhatvlllc, Unmblll, and Nlan
gara. It was round that coagulating
the rubber sap by plunging It In hot
wntcr still gavo the best results and
Is mucli more effective than tho slow
process of allowing It to settle. j
The cultivation of Bcveml other spo
clcs of rubber trees Is bolng experi
mented with, but none equals the
"llcvea hraslllcnsls" In point of pro
duction, growth, und quality It may
therefore bo taken us settled thut tho
"Hevca hraslllcnsls" Is tho best adap

full Is sulllclent for its growth.
illgh-Grado Kongo In Demand.
With regard to Kongo rubber, there
is n constant demand for tho highest,
grades, which, however, are becoming
vory rare, and one of tho first cffcctB
of frco competition would seem to ho
a notable lessening In the enre given
to harvesting and coagulating the
rubbor. Tho grcutcr piirt of tbo Kon
go rubber imported into tho Antwerp
market comes from districts given up
to private cultivation.
It is feared hy rubbor men here
that incessant harvesting of rubbor In
tho Kongo forests will Impoverish tho
growth, lubber oxperta therefore
strongly advocate tho systematic and
well-organized planting of rubber
treos, not only by tho public authori
ties, hut also by prlvuto Individuals,
As yet tho trudo hns not decided
upon tho best form In which tho cnu'o
plantation rubber should bo present
