TIIK MAUI NEWS, SATURDAY, JANUARY 10, 1914.
(Continued from page I)
chartered church organization, per
mission to put banners oij the cars
on Sunday announcing a free lecture
to bo given at the opera house that
night. I was met with an immediate
and prompt refusal from the man
ager, who volunteered the informa
tion that signs were never allowed
on the cars on Sunday, no matter
what the occasion might be. Inas
much as all roads lead to Itotne, I
am still of the opinion that there
was no excuse for the refusal.
Though Time has wrought changes
in others it' may have done so in
the manager of the tramways com
pany. It is either Time or the
effect of advertising, and I lean to
ward the latter for constant drip
ping will soften even the heart of
the Rapid Transit Co.
Sometimes I ask inyscif if this
government lias a land policy that
sticks beyond an appraisement of a
tract of land to be open to home
steaders. After a let of legislating
and backfiring, lands at Kapaa be
longing to the territory, but under
lease to the Makce Sugar Company,
were to be opened for homesteading.
After the executive had signed the
bill, or an order, or something of
the kind, the appraisers were set to
work and they fixed the upset price
at fourteen dollars an acre, which
was really an encouragement to
men who wanted to get back to the
land. 'IHicn came Aica, on this
island and near to town. Home
steaders got theirs at an upset price
of thirty seven dollars and fifty
cents and acre. Now 'see what
happens over night. The appraisers
were called upon to set a price on
the lands at Kaneohe, Oahu there
were three appraisers and three
prices. One of them said three
hundred dollars; another said two
hundred, and the third, who had a
keen eye to the admission of people
who were not among the near-rich
or the real rich, set the price at
fifty dollars an acre and the rest
held up their hands in horror. But
when their attention was called to
the prices named for the Kapaa and
the Aiea lands they came down to
earth. One of the appraisers want
ed to first call on the governor and
talk that matter over with him in
spite of the fact that the three had
been appointed by J03I1 Tucker and
a visit to the executive would mean
a slam at the commissioner. That
was brought forcioly to. the atten
tion of the one who had suggested
it, and the matter stopped right
there. To the man up a tree it
would seem the appraisers, or at
least two thirds of them, did not
want homesteaders as 1 understand
them. The prices suggested by
two would indicate that the poor
man would not be welcome in the
field. Pineapple lands aVo valuable,
but poor men cannot be expected to
pay as much for it as a sugar plan
tation would be willing to, even
though it had to be cleared and
fertilized. .The policy of the United
States is tn'givc the popr man a
chance. with government land, not
en wd bipi to the wall.
(joA-emor Pinkham. has issued a
' statementjtelling the patriots, what
. ho will do and how. Indirectly he
intimates a keen desire to be let
alone and not to be bothered by
recommendations for this and that
odice. The great mass of those who
claim to be real democrats, dyed in
the wool and a yard wide, that
hound the governor's chambers day
after day, and often twice a day,
must be very dense or very hard to
please. A man witli one eye can
see thai the governor is going to do
what he believes is right, and what
ho believes the administration at
Washington would approve of, re
gardless of what the democratic
party, real and imaginary, in Hono
lulu wish. 1 believe the onslaught
is wearing on the governor; he
shows it and should take a rest be
fore he actually begins on his labors.
You can gee the clans gather al
most daily and begin their measured
stride out King street to the capital
there to wait their turn, and their
demeanor is so earnest all the way
along that it is laughable. Ray
mond Brown had a communication
in the Star-Bulletin on Monday
calling upon the people to give the
governor and President Wilson a
show, referring at the same time to
a speech by Harry Irwin at the
banquet the other night, and an
interview with McCandless publish
ed in the Advertiser. Both men
say Wilson will be all right to
Walter Novell, the young man
whose facile pen filled many checks
on a bank where he had no account,
is now safe in Oahu Jail having been
seiit there by Judge Robinson for
a period of six months, on his plea
of guilty to six indictments for
gross cheat, five of which were held
back until lie could be given a
suspended sentence on agreement
of his accusers.
