ING'HORSB SHOEING, g
Frear Visits Nuuanu Dam.
Honolulu, September 17. Gover
nor Frear and Secretary Mutt Smith
went up to the Nuuanu dam yester
day afternoon to in. ike an inspection
mid investigate the loss occasioned
by the heavy rains the other night.
The downpour filled the basin into
which the soil is being sluiced, higher
than the temporary retaining walls
that form the upper side of the basin
would stand, there being no spillway
for safety, and washed out about
twenty feet of this temporary retain
ing wall. The result was that the
water lore out of the basin, not over
the face of the dam, but in fact the
other way, carrying', as it igestimat
ed, 800 or !HI0 cubic yards of material
that had been Muiced into place,
down to the toe of the dam and out
through the drain pipe and the safe
ty tunnel into the Nuuanu stream
and thence into the harbor, coloring
the waters of the harbor with the
ted mud" swept down, as far out as
There was no damage to the dam
itself, though the part of the core
made of redwood was sprung consul
erably out of plumb. The damage
was in the loss of material which has
been once sluiced in at, much expense
and being swept out had to be sluiced
By the time the Governor and the
Secretary arrived there, most of the
exterior evidences of the break and
overflow had been repaired. How-
land told the Governor that there
had been no loss or damage. But
Contractor Wiiilehouse pointed to
the red dirt still left near the valve
of the drain pi pe an:, to the discolor

Winers in me nai oor as evidence
that material had been swept out
and lost. Whitehouse told the Gov
ernor also that there was likely to be
a repetition of the same thing with
the nej t heavy rain.
.Secretary Mott Smith said after
returning from the dam that there
are about six men at work there now
A report has been received from
Engineer Charles E. Smith who was
sent to lay out the "Atkinson" road
into the crater of Kilauea. Tie has
surveyed lines both ways into the
crater, but reports that the line by
way of Kilauea-iki, and the other
ancient volcanoes along that route,
is incomparably better both from a
scenic and an engineering standpoint.
He says that from a scenic stanpoint
there is nothing to compare with it
in the islands.
The trustees of the Bishop Estate,
at thoir meeting on Friday, took for
mal action to give a right of way for
the road over this line. This action
of theirs was formally conveyed to
Governor Frear on Saturday.
A number of convicts were sent up
to Kiluuea Ust week to prepare
camps for themselves during their
work on litis road, and to make other
necessary provision lor a period of
It has now been decided that the
road will follow the line from the Vol
cano House by w ay of Kilauea iki
and the ancient Hilo-Kau trail.
When this road is completed nc.

easier than it is now. Instead of
having to walk or ride horseback,

Value to Land.
Honolulu, September 20. The
nlgaroba tree which Father Bachelot
introduced into the islands seventy
years ago, is working changes evea
in our land matters. Lund Commis
sioner Pratt in about to open some
lands on Maui on application of a
number of native Huwaiians, which
have almost all the value they
have by the development on them
during late years of a heavy growth
of algaroba trees.
The Iot3 proposed to be opened are
twelve lots in the land of Kamaole,
between Kihei and Maalica Bay
They will contain about twenty-four
acres each and will be disposed of on
the 000-year lease plan.
They were surveyed a number of
years ago, but no one would take
them tbeu asthe laud is arid uad
barren. The growth Jof algaroba
trees ha1? made the land good pas
turage for cattle and gigs. The na
tives who have applied for them are
mostly fishermen, and with this land
near the sea, on which they can raise
a few cattle and pig and perhaps
sell some firewood, they expect to be
pretty well fixed m a materia' way.
Commissioner Pratt with the Ap
proval of Governor Frear will also
shortly open nineteen lots in the
'.and of Kaunamano, in the District
of Kau, 1-land of Hawaii. This land
adjoins the land recently taken up by
the Thorn psrn Settlement Associa
tion. It will be! opened at appraised
value in five or six weeks, on right of
purchase leases, open to any citizens
of the United States. The lots will
vary in size from 24.7 acres to 88
acres, the land being partly agricul
tural nnd partly pastoral. The ave
rage amount of cane land on the lots
is forty-one acres. The stimllest
umounl on any lot is fifteen acres
and the largest amount is 52.!) acres.
An application has been received
from a settlement association for the
lands of Hakalauiki near the Haka
lau lands recently opened to a settle
tnent association. The application,
however, has been declined principal
ly on the ground that the lease under
which the land ore now held by the
Hakalau plantation does not expire
for thirteen months yet. In addition
it is very probabale that when the
lands are opened to settlement it
will be on right of purchase leases
open to any citizen of the United
Slates, and not to a settlement asso
It has been claimed that the Unit
ed States is large enough to hold
(100,0(10,000 inhabitants, and that the
time will come when its population
will reach that gigantic figure.
There is no reasonable doubt that
the United States will gain this enor
mous population when we consider
that out of the total population of
433,000,000, in Europe, 1(JU,(IOO,000
are m the Eastern part of that con
tinent, occupying 2, Oil."), 610 square
miles, at the average densityof 51 to
the square mile, and the rest of the
European population which is 5527 ,-
000,000, are living in countries con
taining on'y 1 ,204,084 square miles.
This shows that the more thicky
populated part of Europe has 272 in
habitants to the square mile, proving
amply the possibility of America
holding (100,000,000 in the 55,000,000
square miles which is the area of the
land in the United States, without
counting Alaska and the insular pos
sessions. It is entirely problematical how
long the wonderful rate of increase
of population in the past will be con
tinued hereafter, but if the increase
of population i : the future is to be
estimated in proportion to that of the
last thirty years, during which period
the population of this country has
been almost doubled, it is reasonable
to expect that it will grow to 1(10.
000,000 in 1035, and to :52O,O0O,(IO0 in
llt('i5, and at last to just about GOO,
000,000 at, (he end, of the century. It
is doubtful, of course, if imniigration
which swelled the increase of popuki'
t.ior. in the past will continue to How
hereafter in the same proportion,
and to maintain the same proportion,
and to maintain the same importance
as a faetoi in that regard; but it can
be sareiy said mat me natural in
crease of population in the future
will be enormous even if there should
be restrictions placed upon immigra
tion from foreign countries.
THE LAWYER'S NEED.

Brown a cigar, take a drink with
