There is some question as to the desirability of keeping up shipments of fresh pineapples to the Coast, par ticularly shipments intended for farther east points, as many of the pineapples upon being opened revealed a bad core. , Much of the fresh fruit arriving at coast points looked fine on the outside and appeared to be as good fruit as retailers would care to place before customers. But many retailers have had returned to them by customers' fruit which was unmistakably rotten. The sad part of such dealing is that that customer would probably never buy another Hawaiian pineapple. J. W. Higgins of the Federal Ex periment Station, took some shipments of Hawaiian pines to the Coast a yearf or so ago anu watcneu tne crates wnen landed at San Francisco. He had the fruit shipped to points further up the Coast and the fruit, when finally open ed, was found to be in excellent condi tion, and pronounced by those who par took. of it to be better than any other pines. Hawaiian canned pineapples have found more favor with the mainland public than any other brands, but much of the fresh fruit is said to be so poor when opened in the house of a cus tomer that it is destroying all the good advertising derived from the canned product. Representatives in San Francisco of a Hawaiian Pineapple Company at first did a fine business with fresh pines. The representatives went from Hono lulu to look after the shipments. But they were up against some hard propo sitions, particularly in the way the crates were handled. Many were broken and the fruit b'ruised. Much of the fruit was too ripe on arrival. After being sold it was found that the core had begun to rot and of course the re mainder of the jane- was fit only for the ' garbage barrel. It is said that the valuable experiments conducted by Mr. Higgins, who found the best meth ods of crating and shipping, have "not been properly followed, and the re sults have been disastrous to the shippers. KQliTisEflTS Ml FOB - AUGDST Jacob Kotinsky, Superintendent of Entomology, at the meeting of the Board of Agriculture and Forestry yes terday afternoon, presented the follow ing report for the month of August: I beg to report herewith on the work of the Division of Entomology during the month of August. Inspection. We boarded twenty-eight vessels and examined matter brought by twenty one of them. Our examination resulted as follows: Disposal With Principal Causes. Passed as free from pests: Lots, 661; parcels, 13,754. Refused landing: lot, 1; parcels, 3. Fumigated before relaps ing: Lots, 3; parcels, 6. Burned: Lots, 14; parcels. 61. Total examined: Lots, 679; parcels, 13,824. The most importan things held up were an unknown white fly (Aleyrodes) on potted clover from California; alli gator pear mealy bug (Pseudoeoccus mpae) on Kentia belmoreana from an Ohio greenhouse; finally, lepidopterous and other larvae in mango seeds from Manila. This is the season when many of the peaches imported are badly infested with the caterpillar of the peach twig jnoth (Anarsia lineatella), and To guard against their importation we either refused lauding to such fruit or Ticked it over, burning those infested. This saved merchants from total loss. In view of the terrible loss fruit flies inflict on fruits in Australia, your regulation prohibiting the im FOET AND HOTEL. Telephone 495.

Newell writes as follows: REPORT FOR AUGUST. Eight foreign vessels,' 125 lots, 1646 parcels. Wormy fruit was unusually rare. A few cases of fruit were thrown away, having arrived in bad condition. Some river spuds were again im ported, but being free from soil were allowed to pass. The importers were however reminded of the fact that it is a Tisky thing to import the article, and they will have to abide by the consequences. . That apples, pears, cherries, plums, etc., could be successfully grown on these islands, was a point of which I was never convinced. Last week, how ever, I changed my mind. At a plc.ee called Keanakolu, on the slope of Ma-1 una Kea, at an elevation of 6000 feet, i I saw an orchard of these fruits. The branches were actually bending to the ground under the loads they carried. Apples and pears were especially fine though not yet fully ripe. Cherries and some ther fruits were already out of season. It was a beautiful sight, wd reminded one of a California orchard. Considering' that the trees are left to take care of themselves it is surprising that there should be so much fruit. The trees were planted twenty years ago, I was told, but are still in healthy condition. The only care taken is, to have the place fenced. Though I have the fruit a careful examination, not a single wormy fruit could be found. The mynah bird seems to be the only enemy of the fruit up there, but this pest could be easily and effectually in oculated with a good shotgun. As previously reported, algaroba beans, if allowed to remain in storage any length of time, deteriorate owing to the activity of two rr three species of bean weevils. One of these, the larg est with very much thickened hind legs, was supposed to be a ew arrival. I am informed by a careful observer, Mr. G. A. Jordan, that it is not, that he has known it for years, though it may not yet have been distributed to all the islands. To help keep it confined to Oahu so long as possible we fumi gated 225 sacks of these beans with carbon bisulfide ("high life") before shipment to the Bishop Estate in Kona. We also fumigated a lot of ornamental and fruit plants shipped to Tahiti. It is my belief that the uniform practise of fumigating everything shipped from the government nursery would be a wise institution. Quite a series of in sects now known to be on Oahu only, would thus perhaps remain indefinitely confined to this island. I From Mr. Koebele we received a ; large lot of boxes with horn fly enemies, j Mr. Fullaway, entomologist at the Fed-1 eral Station, received a parcel of para- ' sitised bean weevils which that station is importing for the sake of the para sites. The senders of these do not apparently realize the great responsi bility involved when they do not take the utmost precaution against break age en route. i With the departure of Mr. Van Dine the inspection of imported bees de volved upon me. Fortunately the two lots that came under our observation were consigned to men that could be relied upon to carry out instructions. Accordingly, after consrlting Mr. Wa terhouse, they were turned over to them with instructions to burn all but the queen bee.- In one instance this was done under our direct observation. Miscellaneous. Much of my own time during the month was taken with the preparation of the MS. for and editing the current Forester. It is out now and promises to do much useful propaganda. Dr. Silvestri 's survey of economic entomol ogy as practised here and the rest of the Union occupies mst of the number, which is labeled "Entomological Num ber," and gives us full credit. In a recent letter Dr. Silvestri writes inter estingly as follows, "I have great ad miration for the work of the Hawai ian entomologists and I think that the best plan for controlling insects is that used there and I think also that no nation has done so much in very (gen nine?) economic entomology than (as) the Hawaiian Islands. I have no rea son at present to (ex) change my ex pressed opinion." do:n'T take the bisk.
