that everybody might to ,be yiven
enough laud so that tho owner can
earn a good, comfortable living for
himself and family out of it, and forty

lits this requirement.
"Probably Mr. Pratt believed that
such is the case, but if he looked a
li tie intft the matter he would prob
ably modify his opinnn somewhat.
"Mr. Pratt pooh pouhs the remark
that only ten or twelve acres of cane
can bo harvested yearly from a '10
acre lot after house lot, truck garden,
pasture for animals and road is taken
off. llicrc aro a few men here in the
Territory, some fifty odd in all, who
are the heads of largo sugar phnta
lions and rave- earned their right to
hold such positions by long experi
ence and intelligent experiments in
cane culture, and sugai manufactur
ing. These men have found that with
all the appliances that are at tho com
tnnnd of largo corporations they can
only manage to profitably crop about
a third of their field acres each year,
which experience applied to tha
Kapaa homesteader would mean
that they could harvest" tho cane on
about twelve acres a year provided
everything went smooth.
The Kapaa lands have given an
average yield of three and threequar
ter tons of sigar to the acre during
a period of ten years. The cost of
bringing the product from seed to
shipabh; goods vary somewhat at the
different plantations, but it is safe to
say that a small planter could never
hope lo produce his sugar at the same
cost that corporations with an output
of thousands of tons succeed in doing.
Putting the average cost of the sugar
at. $50, which is probably very low,
and the average net price at $60,
which is certainly high, it would leave
him 11 profit ot $11) per ton ol sugar
or $37.50 per acre, or $150 for his
yearly crop. Out of this amount he
has lo pay his taxes, his water rate",
the upkeep and fences.and a few other
outlays that do not go into the cost
of prt duotior. The balance may pos
sibly support a family but not in

a cent over to bo put aside for a- rainy
lay, as American farmers generally
This calculation could have been
done by most of the boys who have
graduated from the Kapaa school
and probably also by the help in the
land office. Mr. Pratt should have
asked his clerks for some figures be-
fine he acted in the matter of fixing
the size of the homes I ends, then ho
would possibly have offered some

Jimes E. Dever, arriving yester
day on the Campania, finishing a
circuit of the globe, told how Rouse .
velt has "cleaned up Shanghai," says
the New York World of July 10T
When Secretary Taff. returned two
years ago from his celebrated trip
to the eastward he reported to the
President that in that treaty port,
famous throughout the world, the
namo "American" -was synonymous
with "crook." "disorderly" and,
"dive keeper." The President bel
came exc; edingly -angry over the re
cital and immediately determined to
change tin order of things and adopt
the most drastic measures to purge
not only the American concession
but also the whole city of Shanghai
of i's "undesirable" citizens, whether
a strict interpretation of interna
tional law or extra territorial rights
would bear him out or not.
"I will change 1 II this," the Pt esii
dent is alleged to have declared, "so
that the name of American instead
of being a reproach and a by word
throughout the treaty ports shall be
a synonym of honor."
For the purpose of conducting his
moral crusade President Roosevelt
selected Judge Wilfley, who had per
formed a similar work in Manila, for
the post.of Extra-Terrilorlal Judge
at Shanghai. A complete court was
given to Judge Wilfley. His clerk is
a graduate of Columbia, who has
written several books on interna
tiot.al law, and his prosecuting at
torney is a bright young man, not
yet forty. He has also a staff of
bailiffs, who gather in the dlsreput
able Americans wherever they find
them, within or without the Ameri
can concession. Mr. Rogers, the
American Consul, is an ablH second
to Judge Willley.
"To Shanghai had floated," said
Mr. Dover, "the dregs and lowest
outcasts of the Pacific Coast and the
interior states. Many of them had
been cast out of Manila. The men
outcasts were swindlers, thieve and
cheap confidence men, living by their
wits from hand to mouth. They
