Do They .Maintain Their Supcri- v ority Over Native Trees? MR. EDITOR: March 22, 1S0S, our commissioner, J. Marsden, has a com munication in your paper giving advice to ceffee planters which it will be wel for all of us to heed. In said commun ication he has propounded a question to me and no doubt he and others expect me to answer it. Question. "Do the Guatemala coffee trees maintain their superiority over the native as the trees become older?" It is too early to satis factory answer this question. I can only state a few facts that have de veloped in the growing of the two kind of trees side by side the past four years. The oldest Guatemala trees that I have are 400 in number, set in a square and surrounded on all sides by native trees of the same age and the two va rieties have had the same care. The native tree on three sides of the Guate mala, and the Guatemalas are all plan ted on the eastern side of a hill and exposed to the wind. The Guatemalas are duoble the size of the native trees growing by their sides on the. east, north and south and have yielded as near seven pounds of clean coffee per tree the past two years, as the natives under the same treatment have two pounds. On the west side the native trees are in a rich valley, and sheltered from the winds by the Guatemala trees and the hill side of the valley. Until this year they have not equalled the Guatemala in yield of coffe by 50 per cent. This year their yield of coffee promises to equal the Guatemala and the threes are equaaly creditable. We know approximately what the native trees would have done had they been exposed to the wind as the Guate malas were; but I feel a great desire to know what would have been the condi tion of the Guatemalas had they occu pied the rich valley as the natives did, out of the wake of the wind. Their heavy bearing, dry weather and strong wind of last year seemed to stun all coffee trees so exposed, hut they are recovering. I have not set any native trees since becoming acquainted with the Guate malas for the reason they bore earlier with me, and appearently without in juring themselves, besides they grew more thrifty, handsomer to loog at, with their smooth, shining, darker green foliage than the native, which seemed to show their superiority as though they were the thoroughbreds among the common coffee. I don't wish to be understood as re flecting against creditable yields of the native tree, as when .well sheltered, their yield is all right, but with me they were one year longer getting at it. JOHN M. HORNER. Hoard of Inquiry. It is likely that President Dale will detail a military board or Court of In quiry on the petition or application of Cap:. John Good through Attorneys Hartwell and Robertson. Captain Good claims that he can present some new evidence in the matter of the ' missing sight" which was sent through the mail to the President. From this inci dent arose the trial of Captain Good by court martial and his dismissal from the service. It is supposed that the function of the proposed body of in quiry will be to weigh carefully what is presented as new evidence and to pass upon the question of whether or no the case should be reopened. Capt. W. A. Kinney of the President's staff, may be called in as judge advocate. Wharf Repairing. The repairs to the Pacific Mail wharf will be completed by the end of next week. The longest part of the'time has been taken up with the pulling up of old and the placing in position of new piles. This is now about done and the cross pieces and floor will soon be started. Mr. Jarrett has done a good job and has been very speedy in the work, considering what it was neces sary to do. 'omorrow An Uncertainty ! Today we experience; Tomorrow never comes.

A goodly number of Honolulu men who have always been' valuable sup porters of baseball are not a little wor ried over the present prospects. It does not seem probable that the Union people will be able, at the present rate Of progress, to enlist a team that can make the season with the Honolulus and Regiments. In view of this fact one of the men who helps the sport ma terially suggests a league meeting for the purpose of attempting to work out of the difficulty. His idea is that the Honolulus and Regiments should each relinquish a couple of men to the Un ions. This step would give the new nine a team that could make a good showing against all comers. Acetylene and Insurance. The Board of Underwriters has not yet announced a decision in the matter of rates where the new acetylene gas might be used for illumination. It is not likely that a decision will he made for some weeks. From a member of the 'board it is learned that the organiza tion is awaiting advices from abroad. In. the meantime the new lighting com pany is exhibiting its commodity and by the time the question of fire rate is settled will be in a position to install plants. . Tin Wedding Celebration.
