PORTUGUESE ARE AFTER
PA A LAND.
Honolulu, November 20. Gov
ernor Carter stated this morning
that applications for the Kapaa
lands were being received irom
Portuguese. This is the first time
that such applications havo been
received, for up to within a Bhort
time ngo,thcrc has been an absolute
silence on the part of the Portu
guese to secure any of those lands.
'I do not believe said the Gov
ernor " that there is anybody in
this territory who would havo tak
en up the lands under conditions
similiar to those under which the
Molokans went to Kapaa. We
havo not yet arranged about the
details of the terms to the Portu
guese. J '

Who can say that a pretty rom-
nncn wasn tbrought to a sudden
termination by tho slight turning
tho wrist, and tho consequent
upsetting of an automobile on High
street last Saturday afternoon.
Rumor has it that Cyrus Green
has been most attentive to a fair
damsel and announced to his
friends that he would take her out
for a ride in his automobile that ho
had just had repaired and repaint
ed. After taking lessons for nn
hour or so in the art of handling
the machine he and tho wahino
started on High street at full
peed. He seemed to bo in the
hoighth of his glory and evidently
thinking tho machino would follow
the road as his old horse, "Bottlo
Greon" is wont to do, he appeared
to pay more attention to tho object
of his admiration than to tho ma
chine, when suddenly tlio antomo-
bile turned about and as one of the
wheels gave way, turned turtle and
threw tho happy couple sprawling
in the dust.
His fair companion escaped se
rious bodily injury, but her feel
ings seemed to bo badly wounded,
and she is said to havo berated
Grsen in language that wo refrain
from quoting. Seeing others rush
ing to the assistance she cut across
ots and was soon out of sight.
Cyrus sustained injuries that
will compel him to remain in the
lospital for a few days. t

PORTUGUESE AND AN OPEN
It is difficult to see why Portu
guese settlers, who liko Hawaii and
would ho glad to stay in it if
they could get self-supporting
lomee, should ignore tho chances
which the land office offers, to ac
quire small farms. borne mtie
time ago, this paper announced, on
the authority of Land Commission
er Pratt, that tho Molokan oppor
tunity, in better form, would bo
civon to any bona fide Settlement
Association that might seek it.
Yet, so far as wo can learn, thero
are no applicants in sight. In
stead, frugal, industrial Portuguese
long resident here, are going away
to seek homes in California, and
other white farmors arc not coming
This neglect of a good chance in
lifo is perhaps duo to lack of knowl
edge of what tho government offers
Not many of the middle-'aged Port'
uguese read English papers nor is
it certain that many of them read
Porutugueso local journals, or that,
if tho do, the vernacular press telle
them much about land condi
tions. It should be a labor of lovo
to some of the leading Portuguese
to take up this important matter,
