Peck went into the moral and eco
nomical phases of conditions here.
' He thought on the whole, that con-
' dltlons here are better than the ' air
erage on the mainland, and he de
.Clared that the moral conscience is
very busy in helping to uplift HawalL
Mr. Peck went into the school con-
. editions for a moment and during that
moment declared that the Bishop es.
tate ought not restrict its benevolence
to children of Hawaiian blood, : but
should extend its good work to chil
dren of all nationalities. ' -His
general conclusions. on the land
system were that the territory should
be slow to lease the lands, - that It
should exact the maximum amount of
- revenue from them, and that as .the
value of the lands here have come
from the efforts' and industry of all
- the people, it Is hardly fair to admin
ister them hereafter for any one class,
even for fa homesteading class. Mr.
" Peck wept into transportation condi
tions somewhat' having no fault to
find with any' of the transportation
companies,' but sayingHhat he would
, have . no - objection to the supervision
of a public utilities commission.
