HONOLULU, Oct. 20. One of

public, hinds of the Territory H the
lisposilinn to be made of leaseh lids

li ases are approaching th(ir termination.
The Organic Ac t provides that no
corporation shall acquire and hold
real estate in Hawaii in excess of one
thousand acres, also that no lease of
of any public land shail be granted for
i longer term than live years.
Applications for cam: lands on
which leases are running out are he
ing received in considerable numbers
by 1 lie Commissioner of Public Lauds.

that is raised so profitable as sugar
C(.ni, it is the policy of the govern

settled by people who can give as

the preseut state of cultivation i.i

that the corporations owning the
sugar mills now grinding thu cane
from such lands will pay the best
contract juice going on their own
holdings for the cane. 1
What is sought to bu guarded
against is letting people have the
lands who wi'l hold them only for
speculation or who will try to evade
the rcsidencH condition and merely
place Asiatic labor on their holdings
on shares with themselves. Actual
settlers who will cultivate as much

"This is u matter that effects the

Pratt said yesterday ss he outlined
the policy in substance as above.
"At least one settlimcnt associ

the cubital behind it to keep up the

''In trying to obtain actual culti

have the backing of the largest

St. Petersburg, Oct. 8-The arrival
of the body of Major General Kondra

East Siberian 1 titles, who was killed
last December at Port Arthur, and

marked by the most impressive mil!

here since t he early days of the war.
for once all classes of the population
of the capital awakened from that
apathy which was untouched by the
news of the battles of Mukden or the
Sea of Japan or the announcement of
the conclusion of peace.
Thousands of spectators, standing
silent and uncovered in a drizzling
rain, walked the beard Nevsky Pros
pect from the Moscow station to the
gates of the monastery, while Grand
Dukes, Ministers of State and the
highest officers of the army and navy,
many of whom had won distinction at
Port Arthur and in Manchuria follow
ed the coffin through the muddy
str ets as common mourners with the
widow and son of the dead general.
In the procession could be seen the
uniforms cf every order of the Russian
military. Each regiment of the St.
Petersburg garrison sent a detach
ment of veterans, many bearing the
thirty-year-service medals to form
the military escort.
Conspicuous among the clergy were
two militant priests fiom Port Ar
thur, wearing t.ie board yellow and
black ribbons of the order of St.
George awarded them Tor gallantry
during the siege.
Many cities were represented by
deputations. The Emperor had ex
pected to attend, but, as he was un
able to do so, ho was represented bj
Grand Duke Vladimir. Metropolitan
Antonius, assisted by the choristers,
celebrated the "Panich'eda" for re
