Box 41 "D THE ADVEETTSES WORLD'S NEWS DAILY CHOICE OF 100D IS Chamber of Commerce Agree With Special Com mittee. The choice of II. P. Wood as the special representative of the Honolulu Chamber of Commerce to press for the passing of an appropriation bill in Congress for the improvement of Pearl Harbor was officially confirmed yes terday at the regular meeting of he trustees of that body. In the report of the special committee naming Mr. Wood especial pains were taken to point out that the sending of a special rep resentative on the Pearl Harbor mat ter was not to be taken to mean any reflection on either the Delegate or his secretary, George B. McClellan. The report went fully into the neces sity of sending someone to Washington able to devote his entire time to the especial object in view and gave a number of excellent reasons why the choice of Mr. Wood had been decided upon. The report was adopted unani mously. TEXT OF THE REPORT. "The undersigned, constituting youi Committee appointed for the purpose of considering the question of send ing a special representative to aid and afcsist the Territorial Delegate in en deavoring to secure an appropriation for the improvement of Pearl Harbor, begs to report as follows: "The consideration of this question Involved three points: "The advisaDllity of sending any spe cial representative; "Who to send on the mission; "How to raise the necessary fund for defraying expenses. "We realize that this Territory If well represented by its Congressional Delegate, who is in turn ably assisted 6y Mr. Geo. B. McClellan, supplement ed with such further aid as Mr. Hatch may be able to render aside from his duties as special representative of th Hawaiian Sugar Planters' Association. We, therefore, wish it distinctly under stood that any recommendations herein made are not to be construed in any sense as a reflection upon the honor able gentlemen referred to. We feel sure that with their numerous duties, they will welcome any additional help in so important a matter, which may be given by a special representative devoting his time. to the study of It. "We are also aware that the fortifi cation of -Pearl Harbor and Its devel opment as a naval base 1 a matter o4 national concern, and any action taken by the United States Government re lating thereto will be for the purpose of national defense. It is not at all necessary to send any one to Wash ington to- tell the authorities that Pearl Harbor should be fortified; that is their business, and fortunately for us. the executive departments ar strongly in favor of such policy. The tremendous advantages to accrue In a commercial way to this Territory will be a secondary consideration and would not in any sense justify the great expenditure involved in the con templated Improvements. "With these facts in mind, your Committee called on Admiral Very and also upon Captain Otwell, and discuss ed with these gentlemen at length thw status of the -proposition. As a result of these conferences, your Committee was fully convinced of the importance of appointing a representative, who will makea special study of the reports and surveys that have hitherto been made, and also acquaint himself with the preliminary steps now being taken; and thus equipped to proceed to Wash ington at the earliest possible date and be there ready to Impart any addition al information respecting local condi tions, etc., that may be of value to the Departments having this great un dertaking in charge. "In this connection we would remind you that no River and Harbor Bill will' be presented at the coming session. However, as an exhaustive survey was made of Pearl Harbor by the Benning ton in 1897 and a full report was made by the Naval Department in 1900, youv Committee is strongly of the opinion that sufficient additional dita may be secured on which to base a .reliable estimate of the total cost of the im provements in the harbor, including the necessary straightening and widen ing of the channel. In order to avoid any further delay in beginning actual operations, we earnestly recommend that all possible data and information l.; securt'd on these poincs and lo pro. sented to the proper authorities and committees at the earliest possible op portunity. We believe that the pres ent is the "psychological moment' for pushing forward this great work, and no stone should be left unturned which will have any weight or influence on the proposition. "The next and most difficult problem was to find a party with such expe rience and familiarity in handling matters of this kind at Washington as would justify our recommending his being sent as an addition to the able staff now representing the interests of the Territory. We found that it was a question, in a large measure, ot availability. Several gentlemen who have heretofore represented political and commercial interests of this com munity at the national capital, are for business and private reason? unable to go. We are, however, pleastd to report that we have secured the services ot Mr. H. P. Wood, your honorable sec retary, who. of course, is well and fav orably known to you. and who, we are informed, has had much experience in Washington in representing the intej ests of Southern California, particu larly the cityTof S;in Diesro. We are further informed that his presentation of reliable facts and figures in connec tion with these matters was much ap predated by the Departments and committees having charge of the same. CO HED THE I G. H. IS ITSJROIMES Same Troubles Have Broken Out in California and Elsewhere. In regard to the controversy raging in the National Guard of Hawaii, Act ing Governor Mott-Smith said yester day: "There Is, and has been for some time, in the course of preparation, rules and regulations by which it will be attempted to bring the organiza tion, equipment, and discipline of the National Guard of Hawaii to that of the Volunteer and Regular armies of the United States under Section 131 of the Revised Laws of Hawaii, and in accordance with the suggestion of Acting Secretary of War, Robert Shaw Oliver. "In order to entitled the National Guard of Hawaii to its pro rata of the $2,000,000, Federal appropriation, the National Guard must 'conform by January 21, 1908. ' Several carefully considered orders have been issued by the Governor of the Territory, among them an order, to wit G. O. 26, dated June Sth, 1907, relating to the organ ization of the National Guard, in com pliance with which Col. Jones, the Ad jutant General, has since been, acting. The form of this order is almost an exact copy of a similar order govern ing the National Guard of the State of California and is very nearly in the exact language of the regulations re quested by the Acting Secretary of War, Oliver. "The National Guards of the several States and Territories, being volunteer organizations, considerable difficulty is being experienced elsewhere, as well as in Hawaii, in ascertaining how far the rules and regulations of the Regu lar Army of the United States should apply in order to bring such organiza tions into conformity by the time stat ed. The matter is receiving the at tention of the entire National Guard of Hawaii and of the Governor. In the consideration of this subject there Is no question of assumption of author ity by any one but rather of neces sity, on the one hand, to bring about conformity and, on the other hand, of applicability. , "With the common object of con formity, as well as the local laws and customs of National Guard, In view it appears that the entire personnel of the National Guard, including the Gov ernor, are working harmoniously along the same lines.' Under these condi tions, and where the subject 13 an im portant one, there is no necessity of any suggestion that one department of the guard is trying to steal a match on another department, or that there is or has been, dissatisfaction or lack of common understanding, since such suggestion would probably tend to provoke misunderstanding and to ham per and interfere with an honest effort by all directly concerned to treat fair ly and intelligently the subject matter now before the National Guard. "As to .the shooting gallery, that matter is still unsettled. Several sites have been undericonsideration, but no site has as yet been definitely decided upon. This matter is at present under consideration between the Governor and the Federal authorities. No deci sion has been reached by the Govern or, the Adjutant General, or by any of the officers of the National Guard, that the new shooting gallery should be on Beretania avenue. It is desired by all of the above-named, that the shooting gallery shall be so located as to be easily available for its purposes, and for use by the National Guard and so as not to interfere with or dis turb other persons or organizations." J J4 V - -a We therefore recommend that Mr. H. P. Wood be formally appointed a spe cial "representative of the Honolulu Chamber of Commerce for the pui poses above stated. "In the matter of raising sufficient funds to defray the expenses of the special representative, we recommend that the same be provided by subscrip tion, by parties directly integrated in the improvement of Pearl Harbor. We are pleased to state that several of these parties have signified their will ingness to contribute a fair share of the necessary amount, and your Com mittee is prepared if these suggestion meet with your approval, to securo sufficient funds to. defray the expenses of the mission. "Respectfully submitted. "ELMER E. PAXTON, "F. B. M'STOCKER, "E. H. WODE HOUSE," KILOnAXA SCHEME APPEOVED. A resolution expressing approval of the plan for the utilization of the old fishniarket as a McKinley Memorial hall, as outlined by the committee of the Kilohana Art League, was passed on motion of B. F. Dillingham, second ed by A. X. Campbell. The nature of the motion was that the Kilohana plan suggested a desirable method of utiliz ing tiy building and improving the ap pearance of the waterfront. REVENUE CUTTER WANTED. The matter of the necessity of hav ing a revenue cutter stationed perma nently at Honolulu was reintroduced by T. Clive Davies, who asked that the Chamber take the matter up as;ain and nrge action. The value of having some such a vessel as the Manning perma nently on the berth was rcf cried to at length, especial prominence being given to the incalculable value that vessel had been during the wreck cycle of last summer. The matter was referred to the proper committee and another attempt will be made to show the proper authorities the needs of Hawaii in that line. 1 PLANTERS FINISH (Continued from Page One.) The report, which will be published in full in a subsequent number of the Advertiser, concluded as follows: "Altogether 1907 has been a memor able year in the history of forestry and forest products in Hawaii. Wheth er the events of the year shall be taken to heart and made available for the beneficial progress of the Territory, either through the medium of public or private enterprise, depends largely upon the intelligence and energy of the members of this association. "In the past the subject of forestry has been largely treated by this as sociation as an interesting Incident, but not as one of direct concern or of possible immediate benefit or profit to Ite members. Within two years I have heard of trees bounding fields being cut out because the shade In jured the adjoining cane. "In all earnestness I urge upon the association that the time for this view of forestry and its possibilities In Ha waii has past, and that the preserva tion, propagation and utilizing of for ests and forest products should from this time forth be made one of the leading features of the efforts of the Planters Association, both by it as an organization, and through the in dividuals and corporations which give it its strength." FORESTRY SUPERINTENDENT ? REPORT, R. S. Hosmer, superintendent of for estry in the Bureau of Agriculture and Forestry, presented a paper on the work accomplished and planned by his department during the past year, deal ing particularly with the establishing of forest reserves and the necessity-of extending this work. Since the last meeting of the Asso ciation three forest reserves, one each on Oahu, Maui and Kauai, have been set aside, having a combined areA of 58,160 acres. It is now proposed to form additional reserves in West Maui, Makawao, Honouliuli and at Kohala. "Each of the forest reserves set apart during the past year," said Mr. Hos mer, "is made with the idea of pro tecting the forest on the watersheds of streams important for irrigation, pow er development or other use. They are all essentially 'protection forests' and as such it is desirable that the forests within their boundaries be kept strictly Intact. The same statement holds true of the projected reserves on Maui and on the Kohala mountain. TWO CLASSES OF FOREST. "It is perhaps pertinent at this Junc ture to consider certain essential dif ferences between the two main classes of forest In Hawaii. As I have pointed out in previous reports the primary importance of the Hawaiian forests lies in their value as a protective cover on the watersheds of the streams of the Territory, of which the water is needed for irrigation, power develop ment, domestic supply and other uses. In practically all of the forest reserves on the windward side of the islands, or in districts where the reserve pro tects permanently running streams or springs, the forest cover should be kepE . intact, in order that the forest as a j whole, including both the trees of the ; main stand and the shrubs and smaller : plants of the undergrowth, may exer- ' cise to the full their function of re-; tarding the run-off and thus helping to maintain a moderately even flow in the streams. For this reason I re ported adversely, last July, on a prop osition to lumber the forest on the government land of Piihonua, Hawaii, t in the Hilo forest reserve, on the ground that the opening up of the forest on that land would be detri mental to the favorable conditions ex isting on the drainage basin of one of, the most valuable streams in the Ter-rltory-the Wailuku river. THE "COMMERCIAL FOREST. "On the leeward side of the islands, however, and In districts where be cause of topography and other factors there is no permanently running water, a quite different condition obtains. Here the commercial value of the for est takes first place in an estimate of its worth. Especially Is this true of Hawaii and particularly of the Kona district, although it also holds good of sections of Kau and Puna. It Is hereby' necessary to remark that in the utilization of the forests in these dis tricts the work ought to be done with due regard to the future. Except in localities where it Is obvious that the land can be used to better advantage for other purposes than growing trees, the indication is for methods of con servative lumbering, whereby the mature trees of merchantable value now on the land may be removed in such a way that the forest will be left in good producing condition, which will Smoking Our full holiday line is now here and many ladies have already made reservations tor their husbands' Christmas gift.

Fortunately for the Territory the owners of the large private estates are alive to the importance of handling their forest properties in accordance with, the methods of practical forestry, so that there is every reason to ex pect that the major part of the lum bering done will be carried on in a systematic and carefully planned man ner. This being the case the advent of this new industry is to be welcomed as a development of much importance to the Territory. TREE PLANTING ON WASTE LANDS. "Outside of the work in connection with forest reserves the energies of the Division of Forestry during the past year have been mainly directed (1) to ward cooperative assistance to indivi duals and corporations desiring to plant trees and (2) to the introduction of exotic trees and shrubs of value to the Territory Under- its offer of as sistance to private owners the Divi sion of Forestry stands ready at all times to prepare planting plans for Dersons desiring to establish groves or plantations of forest trees, or who wish to do other forest work. This matter should be of peculiar interest to the members of this Association for there is hardlv a sugar plantation on the Islands but that has some areas of waste land that might well be devoted to the growing of trees. With the in creasing scarcity of fuel that is being felt in many districts and with the steady rise in price of the lumber needed for various uses on the planta tion, it needs no argument to show the advantage of a local supply, even though it meets only a part of the demand. "A number of the sugar plantations on each of the islands have undertak en and are carrying on tree planting work, but there are many areas of waste land that still await to be made productive. The offer of the Division of Forestry to assist in this work, is a standing one; the members of the staff are ready at all times to under take the work. "To sum up: the past year may well be considered one of progress in for estry in Hawaii, for while the things actually accomplished may not in themselves be striking they neverthe less play an important part as units in the building up of the structure on which we are all at work, the develop ment of the general- prosperity of the Territory." PLANTERS TO INVESTIGATE. The forestry reports were discussed with a great deal of interest, H. P. Baldwin, H. L. Lyon, R. S. Hosmer and W. O. Smith taking part. The sug gestion in Mr. Thurston's report that the association appropriate for the purpose of promoting the work of scientific forestry was agreed to, Mr. Smith moving that the trustees be empowered to take up and deal with the matter. LABOR DISCUSSION SHORT. Immediately after lunch the associa tion went into executive session for the hearing and the discussion of the report on labor. The report was a short one, the entire executive session taking less than an hour. Following this the members adjourn ed to the room of the Chamber of Com merce, where two illustrated lectures were given. The windows had been covered with black paper In order that stereopticon slides might be used, the lectures proving to be decidedly in Jackets and f fllMF Model Block, MmSWM rort Street. teresting and followed with the closest attention. CANE BORERS. F. W. Terry, assistant entomologist, spoke briefly on the cane borer, illus trating by slides the various periods in the life cycle of the pest, from the time of the depositing of the egg In the cane to the graduation of the In sect as an adult beetle.

CANE LEAF ROLLERS. Cane leaf rollers and the parasites that prey upon them were dealt with by Otto Swezey, assistant entomologist. With this pest the work of extermina tion was going on merrily, a score of flying creatures of various styles of grotesqueness, native and imported, seeking their sustenance for themselves and progeny on the bodies of the pupae and larvae of the rollers, with ! the result that on Maui, at least, the pest had been almost exterminated. FUNGICIDE FOR CUTTINGS. The treatment of cane cuttings to prevent fungoid diseases affecting tha cutting until the young cane had root- ! ed was spoken on by L. Lewton-Braln, who recommended bordeaux mixture as a dip easy to apply, permanent in effect, harmless to the cane, cheap and effective. At the conclusion of these addresses a vote of .thanks was moved by H. P. Baldwin and carried. LEAVE EARLY THIS MORNING.
