IS A FREE SUPPLY DEPOT'
Thousands of Young Trees Fruit
and Shade Grounds Should
Be Improved.
There is no more interesting place
in the city of Honolulu than the Gov
ernment Nursery. From the outside it
looks more like a forsaken homestead
than anything olse, but that fact gives
no index to the beauties contained in
side the whitewashed fence. To tell
the truth it is one of the prettiest
spots here and is much more Jit to be
called a park than any of the places
so-called in Honolulu. It contains
trees and shrubs that it would be well
for the people of Honolulu to get ac
quainted with. It is a place that
strangers from abroad woui'.d think of
visiting the very first 'thing if they
know anything at all about it. The
very best way to advertise one of the
best attractions of the place would be
to flv it un so that neonle would care
there. As it stands now only
to go
people interested in botany and all that
cces with it would visit tae place.
whereas it should be made a spot of
nnhlie. interest. Ask the majority of
neonle in the city about the Govern
ment Nursery and what wid be the
(.ntKPnnpnrp0 Thev will ask yon in
astonishment where the place is
ior the benefit of all it might be
said that the Government Nursery is
verv close to the turn to the Waikiki
road on King street and may be easily
found if one seeks out a large banyan
tree on the town corner and for an-
rvther nf the Chinese snecies a little
farther in.
Just at the present time a sidewalk
is being placed about the grounds and
?t i3 to He honed that this will soon
lead to a new fence and new gates and
new wa'lks. so that the stranger com-
intr tr Honolulu will know where the
o - -
Government nursery is.
A person has to enter the place from
the back. The front ipart is too unin
viting and. aside from that, it is dif
ficult to find an opening in the fence
large enough to admit a person, much
less ;a carriage. The forester's house
i- t thp rpnr and everything else of
important is to the rear.
About IS months ago, D. Haughs. a
Scotchman by birth, took charge of
the place and still remains at the
hc:m. Previous to the time stated he
in ehnrse nf the nursery cn Tanta
lus and nrevious to that, he was in
pVirw nf the nurserv un in Naalehu
V.1UII -y w - - " w ---- - - - ' -
to which place he had been sent b
w n trwin from the botanical gar
dens in Edinburgh, Scotland.
.-it-L- ma ivhnt mv irreatest work
has been since I connected myseir
with this nlace and I answer truthfully
that it is the raising of trees for dis
tribution to different .parts of the city,'
said 'Mr. I laugh. "When I first came
her a it wa impressed unoil my mina
...v, a o - - k
that the people cf the city wanted
trees and the more I got planted the
better. Of course, you know that Ave
do not raise any "flowers" here and
that anything besides trees fcr planting
cut. are out of order.
"To start with, I will give you a list
of what I consider to be the most im
portant trees on the place. I will men
tion first of all the ritonia saliquay.
the algaroba or cral bean, from which
is made the 'St. John's bread.' People
here think that they have the true
algaroba in the tree that grows so com
mon'Iy ;about the city and suburbs, but
they 'have not. The true algaroba as
it is found on the nursery grounds, is
a tree that has a rather prominent leaf,
very much like that of the acacia. It
is a beautiful foliage tree and if it
does well here, will prove one of the
most valuable of trees. The first bean
that has come to maturity in the Isl
ands is to be found here and nothing
is guarded with more care than is
this one bean. The beans are used in
the country from which the plant
comes, for both man and beast and
is said to be one of the most whole
some food stuffs known. In appear
ance, the fruit is very much like the
common algaroba ban found here, but
a little thicker, and if anything, a lit
tle shorter. To the taste, they are
sweet, like the ordinary algaroba beans.
If the tree is a success here it will be
planted extensively for distribution.
The tree now so commonly known as
algaroba, is a native of Mexico.
"Well, to digess from this a bit, I
might say that the palm trees have
the largest demand of any here. Not
a day passes but some one comes to
ask for palms. They seem to be satis
fied with any kind, just so they are
palms. Of course, you understand that
a'.l the palms are raised from seeds
and they grow in excellent shape too.
There is no need whatever for a pro
pagating house. The propagating is
all done cut in the open air. That
ihe advantage of this country.
'"I might mention the ironwood tree
next to the palms. Just lately, a large
number of seeds were collected from
the trees at Kapiolani park and. after
having been dried, were planted in
the boxes that you see here in abun
dance. They are a valuable tree and
are being planted extensively in Nuu
anu where they are considered as the
host wind breaks. They are very strong
at the same time, can be swayed here
and there without a damage. The
Government has ordered a great many
more for Nuuanu and I am being kept
very busy planting the seeds.
"Now. as we are passing ar;und the
grounds I might point -cut to yon the
taxodioum Mexicanum. the Montezema

cypress.
Now then as to the eucalyptus.
There i.a n rrre.ir df-mand f:r these, but
the people who come for them, only
two or three. They know that the
euc:ilyr:i:.s is a tree t h :i t takes all the
iichness out of the soil. I have been
up on Tantalus for a long while and I
know that if people want to plant coffee
there, they wi l first have to cut down
the eucalyptus trees.
'Allicator pears? Well. yes. we
have a few, hut thes? like the others are
gone as soon as they have begun to
peep above the soil. You have no idea
what a demand there is for .them. I
it
might mention the papaia tree along
in this line. Of course the common
tree would not be asked for at all, but
recentlv it got abroad that we had
some t:ees here from India and the
consequence was that all the plants
i - t rr-u
we had on nana nave uisappeareu. me
trees are slighter shorter than the pa-
paias that are commonly found here
and the fruits are long and thick.
Thov are muca sweeter than tne com
mon papaias.
"As to alligator pears I have not
much to say. We (have planted a great
manv f:r distribution and the demand
for them still grows. We have now a
pear irom .Mexico tnat promises to out
shine the one known so commonly
here.
'Now over here in the corner you
win find the allsnice tree. You see that
it is not very large, but I am sure that,
with the proper cultivation, it will do
very well. It is a tree that would be
of the utmost value here. Near by is
the green and white striped bamboo
that a great many people would like
to have, while back of you is the man-
go&Leen, supposed to bear the finest
fruit that grows. I have great hopes
that the tree will do well here. As
vou see, tne nine years oi growtn rutve
not sent i; up very high yet. Over
there is the Macadamia nut tree of
Queensland and near by is the pecan
nut tree that you hear so many people
say will not grow here. You can see
for yourself that it not only grows but
has fruit cn it just as in its native
clime. Just there is the Jamaica
mango, the finest of the kind tihat
grows. Its fruit is finer and sweeter
than any of the mangoes we have here.
You will notice that the branches
hang very close to the ground and that
the tree is simply laden with fruit.
There you see the teak tree of which
you hear so much. As in its native
"country it takes a long time to grow
Hnr wVipn nncp crown, eives one of
the most valuable woods known. Over
there is the large sapotilla plum that
ic ,.n mvitv here, and iust bv. on the
side of it, is the cotton tree, so well
known in the South. It will grow
well here if some one will only go into
the work in earnest. There is no bet
ter country than this for cotton.
"Just there you see the star apple
tree Avh irh henrs the finest kind of
fruit. It is a favorite and, several
times in a month we have the honor
cf a call from Chief Justice Judd who
ha; tnt-pn fi narticulai' fancy to the

tree. The leaves, as you see, are brown

:pp n nnrr I'onelv kou tree. It does not
do well down here in town but we
have brought it down on account of
its scarcity. Even in its native haunts
it is scarce. The wood is much in de
mand.
"Now that I have given you a slight
understanding as to what we have here
I will give vou a list cf the most im
portant tree-s in my mind that we have
been successful in growing, dlere they
are:
Ceritcnia Saliquay, Algaroba, cral
bean. ("St. John's bread"), Manihot
glaniom (clara rubber), bombax (silk
cotton tree), camphor tree, eugenia
pimenta (allspice tree), oinnamonum
fezlanicum (cinnamon tree), bohmeria
rarau or ramies, macadamia teniifciia
(nut tree), garcinia mangosteen, mam
mea apple, urania speciosa (traveller's
tree), dammara kauri pine (varnish
tree), -bauhinia, jacaranda mimosaefo
lia (Indian rose wood), sectonia grandis
(yeak tree), anacardium (casheu nut),
haemtcxylon campchianum (logwood
tree), Ioquat or Japan medlar, Sapota
sapotilla plum, chrysophyllurn star
apple, species of best mangoes, also
species of the most noted palms and
shrubs and trees of many kinds.
After giving this list, Mr. Haugh
wandered to the other side of the
grounds to attend to an order for five
hundred trees that had just come in.
He took the matter calmly, called all
his Japanese assistants to his aid and
in a very short time, had filled the
order.
While the gardener was so engaged
the visitor had a chance to look; about
and observe a few things. In the first
place, the grounds will have to be ar
ranged so that the water wi'll run off
easily. At the present time the trees
are "being killed by the Water which
goes in. settles and remains until the
sun can evaporate it. Two valuable
trees were found dead.
There are a great many trees of no
value at all. on the grounds. These
should be cut down and others of ini-
is port-ance put in their places. Then
there should be labels on or near the
trees that are to be found on the
grounds. As it is now. the visitor gains
no information whatever, unless he
happens to rind the gardener at leisure.
At that time he is fortunate, for the
gardener is a most pleasant man. ever
willing to give all the information he
can. and always ready with a "come
again." A sign on the front gate is
also necessary.
Perhaps the greatest need of all is
that the present fence be torn down
or straightenend up a bit. and iha: de
cent gates be put at prominent places
where people can go in without having
to think of climbing the fence. Cer
tainly the gardens would make one of
the best parks in the city.
