Crocker- Hoffman Land and Water
Company's ditch so that most of the
land around Amsterdam can he irri
gated as long as the water lasts thro
out this system which I understand Is
only until some time in June. They
expect to charge these people six per
cent interest on the amount they are
expecting to receive for the land. This
would make six dollars per year inter,
est and the water tax runs somewhere
between two and three dollars, so it
would make a total of about $9.00 per
year per acre that these people would
have to pay upon this land.
Looking at this matter purely from
an agricultural point of view, this land
is not. worth this money nor could one
afford to pay $9.00 per acre per year
for this land with the view of making
the land pay this amount. The land,
in general is rather rolling and all of
it cannot be irrigated owing to the
fact t hat some of it is higher than the
canal. It is very sandy and underlaid
with a hardpan from two to four feet,
sometimes probably a little deeper.
It is the type of soil that a person who
knew California agriculture would not
pick for general farming. It might be
adapted to almonds or some crop of
this nature, but not to raising of gen
eral farm and truck crops.
In talking this matter over with Mr.
Lace, Ioeal General Manager of the
Crocker- Hoffman Land Company, he
explains it by saying that, they are not
selling these people this land with
the idea that they make a living from
the land, but they are simply selling it
to them as a homestead and at the
same time so that the women and
children will be able to raise a little
garden material and cut down living
expenses somewhat. It is Mr. Lage's
plan that the men and boys shall se
cure labor in the nearby country. I
think he figures that the Yosemlte
Valley Railroad can use 100 or so of
the men; that the Crocker-Hoffman
Company can probably use somewhere
near the same number and that the
Yosemite Valley Lumber Company
can use almost an unlimited number
and it Is his plan that the men and
hoys shall work out as suggested a
hove and gradually pay out on the
The land around Rotterdam Is of
reddish clay type, containing some
gravel and in places underlaid with
hardpan two to four feet. It is of the
typo of soil that we consider fairly
well adapted to olives and will grow
figs and almonds fairly successfully
where the climatic conditions are fav
orable for these crops. However, It is
not adapted for general farming and
could not be recommended for grow
ing general farm crops or truck crops.
If you should have any further In
quiries regarding the matter, I will be
glad to consider them with you.
Yours very sincerelv,
(Signed) V. C. BRYANT.
Maui Representative Back
About 15 Portuguese of Puunene
who have paid Steven the first pay
ment, of $25, and in some instances a
second $25, on the land, took the ad
vice of the Portuguese vice-consul for
Maui, Enos Vincent, and engaged a
representative in California to look at
the land, and into the conditions
under which it had been sold. This
representative, whose name is Solda
do dos Santos, arrived on Maui about
a week ago and his report is said to
be entire accord with the opinion of
the California expert, except that it
is more denunciatory. It will be im
possible, he declares, for a Portuguese
family from Hawaii to make a living
on the 10 acres of land which it would
Want Their Money Back
An effort may be made to recover
from Steven or the company he repre
sented, the money which has been ad
vanced as a result of Steven's mis
representation, and there is some talk
of trying to prosecute him for fraud.
Whether or not this can be done suc
cessfully is perhaps doubtful. Steven
is said to have given receipts for the
money taken by him, signed by an of
ficial of the company In California.
He gave them nothing else, however,
except a letter of introduction to the
Coast company, which stAted that the
bearer would be conducted to the land
in question upon arrival in San Fran
cisco. Steven is said to have dropped his
Portuguese colonization propaganda,
having secured what he could in ad
vance payments, and to be now engag
ed in a plan to recruit Filipinos In the
Territory for work in the Imperial Val
ley, Southern California. The Cali
fornia papers have recently credited
the busy Steven with statements to
the effect that he purposes in conjunc
tion with General Harrison Gray
Otis, testing the Territorial anti-labor
recruiting law, following whidji he
will bring to California hundreds of
the "peon" Filipinos of Hawaii, who
are now in virtual bondage to the
