The Portugese are the best labor for the islands ever brought

ALICE IN HONOLULU.
Miss Roosevelt made u most favor
able impression in Honolulu during
the few hours that ahe was there.
Landing in the morning, most of the
Taft party were driven directly to
tho Pali where photographs innum
erable were taken. A quick drive
iu was followed by a visit to Honolulu
Plantation where again the inevitable
camera was hard at work. Luncheon
to the whole party was served at the
Royal Hawaiian Hotel and after this
came a run to Waikikl where Miss
Roosevelt was taken surf boating by
A. M. Brown, Mrs. Brown nnd
Sec-etary Taft. This she admittedly
enjoyed better than any part of her
trip und it was only because there
was an informal reception to be dealt
with that she could be persuaded to
give up the sport.
Shf stayed ashore until the last
possible moment and left amid cheers
of those assembled on the wharves.
The question of the presents sent
to Miss Roosevelt and of their cos
tliness has already been discussed at
length. Those of great value run up
into the hundreds, the crowned heads
of Europe aud Asia have all sent
gifts, but in response to the parti
eularrequest ot the President him
self that no especially valuable pre
sents be sent, the diffcredt govern
ments it is understood acceded. In
the case of the French 'government
au exception had to be made. Some
time ago an order was given for the
manufacture of a piece of the famous
Gobelin tapestry. It is of the kind
made only for the French govern
ment on special occasions and is
priceless. It vas sent to Miss Roose
velt by Ambassador Jusserand and
under the circumstances was ac
cepted. The Emperor of German-
sent a magnificent bracelet but the
nature of King Eward's present has
not yet been made public. The Cuban
people have sent a splendid pearl
necklace as testimony of their re-gard.

' The land policy There seems tp be much dissatisfaction
nf Hawaii. with the present system of disposing of
government land and many just causes of complaint.
Hawaii leads the eroup in its condemnation of the attitude of the
policy and it seems to be now that Kauoi has grounds for feelin
about the same way about the matter.
The local conditions are such that it requires almost superhuman
grit for a person of average intelligence who is acquainted with
conditions to undertake the development of a small farm and it
6eems to us that all who will should be encouraged to try their
handd at the eame instead of throwing around the" struggling
home builder such stumbling blocks that it verges on Ihe impos
sible. Another item of no small importance is the injustice of giv
ing government lands to the Molokans in preference to those who
have toiled here for years and wish to take up lands and develop
them. In all fairness they should at least be given equal consider
ation if not the preference.
There are many Portugese who would gladly try the experiment
if civen ai opportunity and us they have proven themselves the
.most industrious and in every way tho best labor we have import
ed ther should he sriven the same oppoi tun ty to accquire land;
by Sfe accorded to strangers.
