Lands, governments offer of the Kapaa lands by Fairchild and
state that the government is much disappointed at tho result ol
the negotiations. Why the government olliciuls should feel so if
they do we fail to see.
No policy of the present administration is more narrow or short
sighted than is its land policy and if continued it will be fatal to
the immedate development of the couutry along Aineric m lines.
The land policy of the Territory is and has been to get the
greatest monetary returns from the lands that is possible at the
expenses of sacrificing home life in the territory. No policy could
be more blind or narrow than this.
The greatness of the United States is due more to its policy of
giving free of charge its. lands to actual settlers than to any one
policy that that great country has persued. With untold thousands
of land lords through out the length and breadth of the country
the nation has a foundation of untold strength.
The territory must have more homes. It must have more people
with a deeper personal interef-t in the country than that which
comes from a salary that may bo taken away from them ut any
From a personal knowledge of the conditions at Kapaa we be

our unqualified position that in all cases where government lauds

should be to encourage the settling of the lands rather tnan selling
or leasing tho lands on long terms to wealthy corporations
Tbe selling of free holds or of leases to the highest bidder is do
ing more to keep back the advancement of the territory than any
one thing that could be done.
We believe in giving the lands free of charge to act all settlers
under such conditions of residence and development that will en
