SMITH - EDITOR. TUESDAY FEBRUARY 10 FARMS AND THEIR PESTS. The everyday criticism of small farm ing in Hawaii is that, while the land yields well and market prices are high. It does not pay to fight destructive bugs and insect. Precisely the same thing was said of pioneer farming on the mainland. The early New Englander h.t hard time battlinfr with the marauders of the air and forest. When he planted corn, myriads of crows de scended upon the tender young shoots by day and the deer came to feed by night. The wheat suffered from the wild goose, wild turkey and the weevil. As the remnant of the crops matured, the ripening corn became the prey of coons she y. . ittle court whjrh Y e unforgettable Tulius Palmer figured and squirrels as well as larger quauru- rnflor, cV. ir, 3 flot Unatorc o-n tr. W ,t of curiosity, say smooth nothings about her claim and pass on to the next curio. Session after session has waxed and waned and nothing: has been done for the former soyereign. But hope springs eter nal in the human breast and something always happens to convince Liliuokalani that her chance will come next time. Of late years she has been the prey of lobbyists and shysters who were read.M to encourage the poor woman for a fee. She is in such hands now ; and without knowing it she has armed her enemies with an invincible weapon against her. 'Congress, which lets just claims go bv default, often wishes it had a plausible excuse. None answers that purpose better than the assertion that the claimant has agreed to divide whatever Congress gives with contingent-fee lawyers and lobbyists. It is true that the Senatorial sub-committee which visited Hawaii last summer recommended that something be done for Liliuokalani but every righteous claimant before Congress whose bill remains unsettled has had .the same experience, many of them more than once. It is one thing and a comparatively easy one, to get a favorable word from a sub-committee; it is quite another to pass the chairman of the appropria tions committee, the speaker and the professional watchdogs of the Treasury on the floor. But for the course of the President, in making mention of the matter in his message, even the fire claims bill would have had a second defeat. The good words of the Mitchell com mission for the former Queen of Hawaii will go with very little force to the minds of men whose business in Congress is to keep appropria tions down. Mitchell and his colleagues admit that Liliuokalani has no legal claim upon Federal bounty. They say that her claim must rest solely upon "considerations of national grace, public and private justic political policy and fair, equitable dealing." If the argument of politi cal policy could be made to stand, all might be well ; but every practi cal man at Washington knows that it does not make an iota of dif ference to the national party how elections go in Hawaii. As for sen timental reasons they are never able to impress the watchdogs. It some times takes a good while to get the widow of a President or a great General on the pension list, so what of a long dethroned duskv Queen main, the growths of staple or general Gf a distant insular possession whose friends do not cast a single vote in agriculture, which are not the crops natinna1 Wtinnc ? From the beginning the Queen has had the worst of political advi rr a 1 1 1 sers. 1 hose she uses here, who are wen-meaning, nave no Knowieage of practical American politics and legislation ; those who are not sincere are out after fees. In Washington, as we say, the Queen is the victim of lobbyists. Meanwhile she is incurring a great expense. Before long if she does not stop looking for the pot of gold at the end of a rainbow she will find herself compelled to borrow more money. It is a pitiable outlook for the old lady, who ought to be at home, living within her means and accepting fate with fortitude. She is on the Territorial pen sion list and she will be wise if she satisfies herself with the good the gods provide and ceases to yearn for the unattainable o LILIUOKALANi'S CLAIM. gsn CVo T7 mWJL 11 U L LA, I I Z U.

Uncle Sam will pension his soldiers ache, impairs the taste, smell and and pay indemnity to foreigners whose governments make out a case, ! hearing, pollutes the breath, de but his own private creditors die of old age without getting a penny. The story of the McGarrahan claim and of sundry others is one which Queen Liliuokalani might study with profit as showing that a just debt does not always ensure collection. To see the play called "The Sena tor," which is based upon the unhappy career of the McGarrahan claimant, would be a liberal education for her in the inner workings of the appropriations committee. This is the fourth or fifth year in which Liliuokalani has be sieged Congress for indemnity. Perhaps it is the sixth ; we are not sure of a year more or less. She began there by taking up her residence at a hotel ; later she had a house, or at least sumptuous apartments where Pacific Hardware Co , Ltd. HOUSEHOLD DEPT.

Fruit and vegetables were fair game for a host of feathered and four-footed thieves and insect depredators, from robins and jays to rabbits and grass hoppers. Even chicken raising was no pastime, with hawks circling above the fowls by day and foxes and wild cats prowling by night. Getting a living was an everlasting fight in pioneer days; hut the time came when, by the SET TLEMENT OF THE COUNTRY, some of the pests disappeared and the rest became easy to keep down. That is the keynote of the fight against agricultural pests everywhere the settlement of the country. Today a man goes out Into the middle of a thou sand acres of wild land and plants a little garden. At once the pests of the Jungle rally on the fresh vegetables and the farmer fights against odds. But let a few score more farmers come in, cul tivating the whole thousand acres and each tract has no more destructive in sects than its owner can handle. Ob serve the Chinese market-gardeners whose vegetable farms are within city limits or in long settled suburbs. Don't they succeed? Don't they manage to feed themselves and the town besides? There is no necromancy about it all; It is simply the result of good judg ment in picking out a place to culti vate and industry in pushing the work. "What the Chinamen do in these respects is possible for the superior Caucasian. In any part of the islands white farm ers, if they cultivate a large enough contiguous area, can handle the pest question as easily as they do in Ohio or California or Mississippi.

The farmer here must not expect to get rich in growing the things of which California yields an overplus. If he does he will have nothing to ex port; and in the home market he will meet the rivalry of Asiatics. His great opportunity lies in special agriculture, the pests to threaten which either have not developed or are easily controlled. Let him avoid wheat, corn and garden truck, except for his own private use, and either go into dairy products, for which the whole country is adapted or the raising of sisal, pineapples, tobacco, peanuts, bananas, poultry, small fruits, vanilla beans, etc. In these Dursuits the pests count for little and the profits for much.
