Giant Ferns Are Placed Over Volcano Fire and When Taken Out Are Greedily Eaten by Hogs. HONQLUL.U, April 24.— (Special)— Feeding hogs on giant ferns which have been pr< viously cooked by the heat from a volcano, is a novelty in the agricultural field which it is to tay can be seen in but one place in the whole world. That place Is in Ha- Waii; and one man at hast is mak ing a profitable business out of his foresight and enterprise. Peter Lee. an American, has a ranch riirlit on tlie edge of tlie great crater Of Kilauea, on the Island of Hawaii, some 2u6 miles from Honolulu. All about the tremendous cauldron of na ture spreads dense forests for many miles down the easy slope of the mountain's sides. Very much of this tangle of vegetation is made up of great tree fern-, many of which tower BO feet or more in the air, like great feather dusters. The great trunk or st>m of this fern, frequently a foot or more In diameter, is composed of a pulpy, fibrous mass, enclosed in a. hairy hard* r covering. Peter Leo dis covered that this pulp contains a SALVATION OF TURKEY (Continued From Page One.) is needless to say that he received short shrift at their hands when captured." Tchorrigan is a comparatively young man. not over 3. r > years of age. Pur ine conversation his idiom sometimes became somewhat involved, as in what seemed to be an unemotional manner he recounted the things he had wit nessed. "Xo Turk may leave the country Without having first obtained special permission. This is seldom granted and the younger men resent it. For this reason as well as many others they are now revolting. They are business men. Armenians are employ ed by the younger Turks engaged in business, and that they may be suc cessful, their employers take measures to properly protect them. Armenians as a class are honest and willing to work, but the Turks which might be employed in their place will not. On this account the Young Turk party sees the necessity of putting an end to the rioting if they would make business conditions good. "It is among the common people that the riots first originate, and the Ar menians retaliate in kind. As there are more Armenians they drive back the mob. Then the soldiers come and kill the Armenians for doing this. The sultan and his pashas only protect them because they are well paid. Members of • the younger Turkish party desire to stop this bribery which is cursing the land. The pashas want bribery and are willing to pay for it. The soldiers who have not been near the pashas to be bribed are the ones who are now supporting the young Turks. These soldiers are being paid by the young Turks to fight for them against the government. Those soldiers in Con stantinople have been bribed by the party in power. "It may be that Abdul desires to protect the wild tribes, perhaps he Is ruled by his pashas.

It was same time before the pres int method of cooking the ferns sug gested itself, bat when it did the prob lem was solved. In many places about the volcano, sometimes several mile from the active c ntral pit. cracks have bt en formed in the hardened lava surface which covers the whole moun tain, doubtless through the contraction of the material in cooling, and from thes? fissures heat and steam in var ious degree-- of intensity perpetually escape. To construct a gridiron over one of these heat cracks, and to pile upon it the fern trunks, cut into cord wood lengths, was the acme of sim plicity, but for effectiveness could scarcely be improved upon. In the course of a few days, dependent on the amount of heat of any particular crack the steam has thoroughly softened and cooked the f« rns. and all that remains to do is to split each stem with an ax. when the swine will devour them vo raciously. Dr. E. V. Wilcox, director of the Ha waii experiment station, believes that Hawaii's ferns may come to be of con siderable economic importance as a stock food. Fern roots have had some value in this line in some parts of the northwest, where the growth is com paratively scanty, and if the food value of Hawaiian ferns prove as high, large tracts of forest land are likely to acouire a new val"e. from Turkey that for four months the sultan has had no power, but is made to do as the parliament tells him. Now however, the parliament has become corrupt and conditions have again gone back as before." Tchorrigan told how the riots were suggested from the Yildiz Kiosk. A dog is painted green and white, the Turkish national colors, and set free. "Then the people say the Armenians have done this. The sultan allows j them to kill and once more the trouble i is started. And back of it all is the I fact that the riots are all committed! merely to fill the purse of .some one | high in power, while we," with a dcs- j pairing gesture, "have to flee the coun- j try. Yes, of course good government is i promised, but it is never granted. Re- | member the young Turks are the i friends of the Armenians, because they I are necessary to them in the conduct! of their business, if they would prove j successful. When the Armenians can not work then trade stands still. "It may be that the sultan will abdi- j cate, but you will see that this will make no difference. Before good gov- j eminent can return the control must j be removed from the Kiosk. When | this is done all who have left the coun try will return because business will be 1 put on a sound basis. "It's a queer proposition, isn't it?" Commercial Convention LOUISVILLE. Ky.. April 24.—The Commercial State convention met here today with a large representation from all parts of the state.

No. 124 West Alder street, has this day been dissolved by mutual consent; that said Joe M. Hall will continue the business, and pay all debts contracted by said restaurant, and collect all bills due the same. Dated, April 24, 1909. JOE M. HALL Honolulu Recognized. HONOLULU, Hawaii, April 24.— Honolulu will be the third city in the United Staes to be equipped with one of the new weather bureau kiosks, or street observtion stands. The first was erected a short time ago in Washing ton, and a second in San Diego. Hono lulu heard of the California city's be ing favored, and went after one for herself, with the result that Weather Bureau Director Moore has advised the local weather bureau office that one is to be sent here, and asking that a site be selected for it. These kiosks are ornamental struc tures about four feet square and some seven or eight feet high, in which a full set of self recording meteorologi cal instruments are open to view, pro tected behind glass. They are designed to be placed on some public thorough fare. Insurance of Collateral. I NEW YORK, April 24.—Bank offi j cer s in this city are considering a I matter that has already attracted con siderable attention in Baltimore, name ly, the formal and official transfer of Prima Donna Who Believes in Motherhood as Well as Stage Mme. Louise Homer and her twit**. Mine. Homer believes it is quite pos sible for an opera singer to be a good artist and a good mother at the same time. The twins are now a year and a half old. Besides them Mine. Homer the insurance protection at the time of the transfer of title of merchan dise constituting the collateral for loans. Experience ha s shown, it is ad mitted, that tliL- companies have not attempted to take advantage of the le gal position they at times occupy in being permitted to avoid their con tracts where title to the property in sured has chang. d. without such change being noted on the actual poli cy covering the risk. But the ract re mains that such contracts can only be enforced by the grace of right. The situation, it is argued, should be cor rected and the underwriters amend their forms by permitting their local agents to issue such c rtificates to be binding legally upon their respective companies in the absence of the policy.

HMD IN EFFIGY BY AN ANGRY MOD Governor Wilson of Kentucky Arouses Indignation of Citizens When He Pardons Parties Convicted of Conspiracy. FRANKFORT, April 24.—Gov. A. E. ! Wilson was hanged in effigy here to j day following his action in pardoning former governor W. S. Taylor, former j Secretary of State Charles Finley, and others charged with complicity in the i murder of Williab Goebel, in 1900. Beating the effigy, a mob of several . hundred suspended it from the bridge I over the Kentucky riv< r. | Upon the breast of the figure was fastened a placard denouncing Wilson and announcing the determination "to show there is such a thing as mob law."
