B. P. 11. K. SURGEON
Have just returned from a week's
stay at one of the big plantations,
sixty miles from Honolulu. The
train follows the otWn beach, and
often it jumps around the base of
towering rocks between waves, just
like a child playing on the shore.
It is very interesting and awe in
spiring when a wave dashes against
the car windows. Then the thou-1
sands of acres of green sugar cane
on lowlands and on the bills seem
to be challenging Old Pacific for
supremacy. Hundreds of acres ot
of rice being cultivated by aid of
the water buffalo. You pass through
many Japanese villages, miles of
cocoauuts, pine apples and all kinds
ot tropical fruits. The same varie
ty are never seen on the mainland,
as they will not ship Ihaveeaten
delicious fruits of which I had never
seen or heard until coming to VVaia
lua plantation. The names of the
stations euroute I never can remein
ber, for the pronunciation is beyond
me. The large Lua plantation and
mill is pronounced Kva. YVailulu
plantation, my destination, covers
1 0,000 acres. They employ 3,000
Japs, 1,000 mixed nationalities and
about 100 white men. There is
thirty miles of railroad on the plan
tation work night and day at the
mill. Often I wondered how lone
that handful of whites would last
if the Japs turned loose. Life on a
big plantation is not so bad. The
white tamilies have beautiful homes,
automobiles, carriages and riding
horses. Kveryone is healthy. They
are very sociable with one another
and time never drags. They get
good wages and live well.
Idid not seem so far away from
Williams, whom I was visiting, was
formerly Miss Florence Kllis, of
Marshfield. Another guest at her
home was Mrs. Sophia Mellis, the
widow of Alfred Mellis, formerly of
Portland. We three spent a day
on the same plantation with Mrs.
George Crookshank, a sister of
William Rettie of Fossil. Ore., and
on Sunday Rev. Edward Potwine,
for so mauy years pastor of the
Episcopal church at Pendleton,
preached at Wailulu. He has been
joy the bathing and surf canoeing,
which is a great sport here, espe
cially among the native. As for
myself, I enjoy the horse-back rid
ing over the hills, through deep
forest of lieautiful ferns, along the
beach "and among fields of waving
cane. The view from the hills is
beyond description. One great ad
vantage here in riding or tramping
is, there is no poisonous bug or
snakes of any kind. A showman
once brought a snake here, and the
authorities immediately purchased
and killled it.
I wish the Hillsboro school chil
dren could see the thousands ol
beautifully colored fish ol the most
wonderful shapes. To visit the
fish markets here in early morning
is one of the sights of Honolulu.
They have the flying fish here in
the tropics and are seen when you
are out 111 the steamer. They re
se ruble a flock of birds skipping
over the water.
Ou,Seplember 4 I leave Hono
lulu with the nine Hawaiian young
ladies w ho 'are on a pleasure trip
to the Pacific Coast. They are col
lege girls, good musicians and fine
singers Two of the girls are
teachers here. I will take them to
Hillsboro for a part of a day and
am sure my friends there will give
them a cordial welcome. One
young lady, Miss Todd, was born
and raised on the isle of Hawaii,
right near Capt. Cook's monument.
The older Hawawaiians never felt
kindly toward Capt. Cook because
he discovered the Islands. We
will go to Forest iGrove and visit
Pacific University. We expect to
reach Portland about September 22.
There is many interesting things
to tell concerning these Islands, In
my 'next letter I will tell ol my
visit to the greatest active volcano
in the world.

The Legislature of 1907 passed
an act appropriating $125,000 per
annum lor the University of Oregon.
On May 23, 1007, Eugene Pal

ed to the secretary of state petitions
demanding that this act be referred
to a vote of the people.
The secretary of state refused to
file the petition because the "warn

because it did not contain a full and
correct copy of the title of the act
Mandamus proceedings were
brought and Judge Galloway held
that the petition was fatally defec
tive and need not be filed.
The supreme court, in an opinion
by Justice Eakiu, has reversed this,

been substantially complied with.

The Y. M. C. A. hall at Portland
was crowded to the doors last Sun
day nik'ht by persons anxious to
hear Rev.f Hiram Vrooman's ad
dress on "Our Possible War With
Japan." Iu part the speaker said:
"The rumors of our possible war
with Japan are of such a character
as to challetiKe the serious attention
of every thoughtful citizen ot our
country, a'l especially every one
of the Pacific coast.
"The hour is at hand for us to
awaken to a realization ol our dan
ger and to begin at once upon pre
cautionary and defensive measures,
some of which it is the purpose of
this address to set forth.
"But before considering measures
of precaution and defense 'let us
take a look at the situation. The
situation presents, first, some things
that are plainly manifest; second,
some things that are highly proba
ble; third, some things that are al
together possible, and, fourth and
last, but not least, things whose
seeming impossibility cannot be
proved. These things whose seem
ing impossibility we cannot prove
must be in a measure portentious
until this proof is secured. We
will consider these things tn their
First The thing unmistakably
manifest is that Japan is concentra
ting the entirety of her powers as a
nation in carrying forward some
well-planned and far-reaching stra
tegic movement ujrAcu, probably,
is no less, ambitious than to secure
permanent military control of the
Pacific. The rapidity ol her pro
gress on the Pacific, si,iCe her vie
tory over Russia, i, in ratio with
the rapidity of her rise as a nation
since the time, but a few years ago
when it first occurred to her to be
come a world p.iwer. And her rise
as a nation stands out unprecedent
ed among all the nations during all
the ages. The pace of her progress
on the Pacific right now is far more
rapid than that of the United
"Second The highly probable
thing is that, for economic and com
mercial advantages and for secur
ing relief to her home congestion of
population and for the sake of pres
tige, Japan is seeking aggressively
to increase, as rapidly as possible,
the influx of her own people into
our Tacific coast states.
"Third An altogether possible
thing is that, in addition to secur
ing economic and commercial ad
vantages and relief to her home
congestion of population and great
er prestige as a nation, she is en
conragiag her own people to come
here as rapidly as possible for the
sake of military advantages.
"Japan is providing for invalua
ble assistance to her cause, in the
possible event of war with us, at
any time soon or in the distant fu
ture, by establishing her own peo
ple in our states. This is true be
cause we could never expect of any
Japanese, whether he became a nat
uralized citien of this country or
not, to sympathize with this coun
try or not, posed to Japan. But,
on the contrary, we would always
expect him to remler any service to
Japan that migbt le possible in
time of war.
"It there should ever be war be
tween the United States and Japan
there would be on our shores in ad
vance ot hostilities what would be
practically equivalent to as many
Japanese soldiers as there are Jap
anese in onr miJt.
"Fourth The thing which has
not yet been proved to be impossi
ble is the successlul carrying out o(
a particular stratagem on the part
of Japan by which she would be in
possession of the Pacific coast cities
of America, holding the people of
Portland, San I'micisco. Los Ange
les, Seattle and other lare cities as
hostages of war aud seizing, as the
prize of war, all property other than
real estate, btiore J.e American
fleet of war vessels arrives this side
of Cape Horn next spring. The
tact that we do not know that such
a strategic coup for them and cal
amity lor us is impossible is in it
sell portentious. Atul if it should
be among the possible thiugs we
may be sure that Japan knows it.
'The precautionary ami defen
sive measures which I present here
with, without hesitancy, as being
amply justified by the facts of the
situatiou, are three in number:
First A public opinion should
at once be created or such a virile
character as to prevent our own
people from giving employment of
any kind to any Japanese. This
would establish an economic condi
tion which would, by perfectly
peaceable methods, make it impos
sible for any large number of Jap
anese to remain in our midst. They
cannot remain where they canuot
find renumerative employment witlf-
out being supported by their own
government. And their govern
ment would support none who were
here for any other reasons than mil
itary. I should like to see public
opinion so strong in regard to this
matter that any man or woman giv
ing employment to a Japanese
would be considered as unfriendly
to the public good and boycotted
out of business and social standing.
"Second A private detective
agency snould ojerate under the
auspices of a citizens' organization
for the purpose of ascertaining the
number of Japanese in the different
cities and states, where they reside,
what they do and other desirable
'Third A rifle with plenty Of
ammunition should forthwith be in
every nouse where there is a man
capable of handling a gum This
alone would prevent any possible
sudden uprising on the part of the
Japanese in our midst, leca use the
success of any sudden attack would
depend upon their blowing up our
armories and powder magazines and
conironting an unarmed people.
"There is one other precaution
which should be taken to give ef
fectiveness to these three special
ones. It is that public opinion
should not tolerate even the slight
est unlawful acts of violence toward
any Japanese. Every personal in
sult or act of discourtesy on the
part of any one toward a Japanese
should be punished summarily and
to the full limit of the law. The
same rightequs and patriotic indig
nation which boycotts the man giv
ing employment to a Japanese
should punish without mercy the
man who without ample cause,
does personal harm to any Japan
ese. The relation between us as
individuals should be that of friend

Further Improvement of Conditions
Western Rsnges--Loss of
Washington, Sept. 11. Further
evidence of the government's con
cern over the improvement of range
conditions in the National Forests
is shown in the announcement just
made that rtock owners will be fur
nished free of charge supplies of
vaccine for the treatment of stock
afflicted with black leg, tuberculo
sis aud other animal diseases. This
arrangement has been made by the
Forest 'Service with Dr. A. D. Mel
vin, chief of the Bureau ot Animal
Stockmen holding permits for
grazing in the National Forests
will now be furnished with an ef
fective means of combatting with
out cost all of the most dangerous
diseases to which stock is subject.
The vaccine can be obtained simply
by applying to the supervisor of the
Forest upon which the stock is
grazed who will at once forward the
approved request to the Bureau of
Animal Industry where it will be
filled. Full directions will be fur
nished for its use.
The Forest Service and the Bur
eau of Animal Industry are work-
ing hard in an endeavor to eradi
cate or diminish the common forms
of stock disease found on the wes
tern ranges and their efforts are
meeting with much success. It is
anticipated that a large number of
stockmen will avail themselves of
this latest offer of assistance And as
a result the loss of stock will be
greatly reduced and tangs condi
