Acquire The agreement between the governnient and the
Homesteads, settler on public lands has ut last been decided
upon and is n vast improvement over t tie old agreement as il will
make the taking up of public lands for speculative purposes less
desirable and will be less irksome to the homesteader who is really
in earnest in his desire to secure a home.
The following clauses are the most striking features of the new
'Five per cent, of the purchase price is to be paid at
date of agreement, the land having been sold at auction.
"In addition to the five per cent, paid as aforesaid, the
purchaser shall pay to the commissioner five per cent, of
the purchase price two years after the date of sale, and
five per cent, of the purchase price at the end of each
year thereafter until the entire purchase price shall have
been paid; provided, however, that the purchaser may, if
all covenants and conditions have been observed and per
formed up to that time, pay to the commissioner on any
pay date not less than ten years after the date of sale any
or all instalments then remaining unpaid.
"Unpaid instalments of the purchase price shall bear
interest at the rate of six per cent, per annum from ten
years after date of sale, payable annually by the purchaser
to the commissioner on said pay dates;
"Ten years after the date of sale or at any time there
after, if all the covenants and conditions have been observ
ed and performed, of which observance and performance
the purchaser shall make affirmative proof, the purchaser
shall be entitled to a patent conveying said land in fee
"The purchaser shall maintain his home and reside upon
said land at least five years during the first ten years after
the date. of said sale and no period of less than six months
of continuous residence at said home shall be held to be
part of said five years.
From this it will be seen that so far the work is a decided im
provement and the next step will be to provide for the Burvey and
the appraisement of the lands and throw them open to settlement.
The land laws of the mainland provide that anyone may settle on
unsurveyed land and improve the same and when the land is sur
veyed the settler has a certain number of years in which to file his
homestead and will hold the same in spite of any subsequent claim
This can hardly be permitted hero as it is in the interest of pub
lic policy to have a reasonable valuation of the land paid to the gov
ernuent for the same and if the prospective settler would make
his home on land he sought previous to the survey and appraise
ment he might find the valuation beyond what he would be willing
to give for the same and would lose his time and labor.
Under these circumstances wo would suggest a speedy survey
and appraisemeut that the many who are clamoring for homes may
get them nnd the work of home building begun as soon as possible
Would Restrict Recent advices from the Philippines announce
Immigration. the request of the Filipino Chamber of Com
merce for law forbidding immigration to Hawaii of the laborers
there for fear of a complete ruin of the chief souice of wealth to
The petition of the Chamber of Commerce must strike the aver
age American as one of the strangest requests ever made of a
legislative body in American territory. Every man' is supposed
to be a free agent who may go where ever he wishes. As the plan
tations here offer a much better field for the laborer than the
Philippines it seems to us but natural that the laborer should come
and as those who have come are most satisfactory laborers others
should follow their example and if the government of the Far East
is just it should be glad of an improved condition of her people.
The efforts of the Chamber of Commerce to have a law enacted
to prevent the free migration of her people is so unjust and is so
opposed to the rights of every human being that it can hardly be
believed that it is true that that request came from a body of bus
mess men in an American city.
To better his condition is the inalienable right of every person
and as the conditions are far better here for the laborer than they
are in the Philippines more of the laboring class should be encour
aged to come.
Sunday In spite of the determined efforts of many good peo
Baseball, pie to prevent the playing of baseball on Sundays the
game on that day is becoming more popular and the attendance
This paper has repeatedly pointed out that the playing of the
national game has done a great deal of good in this community and
there are few here to dispute the statement.
The game is thoroughly enjoyed by a great many persons. It
brings the peopje together and gives opportunity for a better un.
derstanding and closer ties of friendship and offers opportunity
for a diversion from the routine of life that is irksome.
It diverts from places of drink persons who formerly imbibed
too heavily and it is the cause of almost the entire breaking up
of gambling among the whites and leading Ilawaiians.
If baseball could be attended on week days as it is on Sundays
it would be all the better but there are many who cannot get away
from their work on those days and there are others who are coo
tired to do so after their work is done.
The game at Kahului last Saturday proves, however, that there
are many who can spare the time and thoroughly enjoy the game
The more clean sport we have of t his nature the better and those
who can see the games on both days will be benefited and assist in
bringing about a better understanding and closer ties of friendship
than have hitherto existed.
In an editorial in a recent issue of the Evening Bulletin that
paper has the following to say of the results of Sunday baseball in
"Mr. Dickey's iiekiiowledunicnt of conversion to the Sunday-baseball
idea should have, a good effect on some of the citizens of Honolulu who
are very much disposed to scorn the lilwral"' ideas of the Average Citi
"When Sunday baseball was first proposed the advocates of this health
ful pastime on the Sabbath were put down by many of Mr, Dickey's as
sociates as dangerous jxrsaiis. They wi re considered HAD indeed, for
they were promising to desecrate the Sabbath day, and disturb the quiet
of their fellow citizens.
"Now these Average Citizens were not bad; they were not intending to
disturb anyone; they were not sinners.
"They were exercising their common sense nnd knowledge of human
nature in dealing with exact conditions. They wen- just as honest, just
as sincere ns nny of those by whom they were so hastily criticised. They
ire ns good, pi rhnps better, citizens that some of their critics.
"We make reference to this, and call especial attention to the experi
ence of Mr. Dickey, liceau.se there are other matters of public morals on
which the Average Citizen of the city of Honolulu has been most bitterly
assailed by the strict constructionists and high-tension or fanatical mora
lists. "The Average Citizen is as certainly UKillT in his attitude toward
the more recent moral problems as he was on Sunday baseball.
'It is sometimes hard to determine which is the more deserving of
criticism the two or three fanatics and their scheming satellites who set
out to reform everything and everybody in seven days, or the Averagi
Citizens who know that the fanatics are wrong injuring themselves and
injuring the town but still let them go on with their program of intoler
mice and outrageous conduct.
"The Average Citizen, assisted by the Bulletin, put the Sunday base
baseball project through, and those who cursed the combination fur its
evil work have conic to praise it.
"Taking this for a text, let us remember that then- is no set of persons
that possesses monopoly of righteousness or community decency. .
"The safest level for nny city to follow is the sentiment of the Averagi
Citizen, or, as San Francisco has put it,, the Second-Best Citizen the
man who is respectable and self-respecting, who doesn't assume to sit in
judgment on his fellow-men, but loves his home, his family, nnd wants
to sec them properly protected, who is liberal and decent.
If the Average Citizen will take command of this town, as he should
do, the conditions will be much more satisfactory to those who live hen
and those who may come. Today the fanatics hold very complete sway
"Fanaticism is ruinous, and Honolulu has enjoyed a surfeit."

the kahului and Puunene teams. A
fine game is expected as both teams
have been in good form for weeks
It is said that W. Espinda, the

do the tossing for the Kahului and
with their present lineup, the Puu

they want to win the game.

this week to attend the wild west show
to be given there. He was greatly dis
appointed in not being able to persuade
me steamer people to take Maua but as
the fame of Maud of Kahikinui bids fair
to equal the fame of Maud of the comic
paper9they demurred. The Hawaiians
here call Maud the "Kahikinui Devil

she has not been misnamed.
