OUR ISLAND CONTEMPORARIES
(Continued from Page Four)
Our Only Land Control
There has been considerable discus
sion during the past year tn regard to
the proposed change in the land laws
which will eliminate the only clause
in the law which gives the people of
this Territory any control over the
homesteading of the land. This clause
provides that whenever twenty-five
citizens join in a petition to the gover
nor ana lana commissioner to open
any certain tract of land eligible for
homesteadvng these officials must at
once take steps to open up this spe
cial tract designated and give all citi
zens, irrespective of whether they
signed the petition or not a chance to
secure one of the homesteads under
the rules and regulations provided,
With this clause eliminated the
opening of homestead tracts is left
entirely at the discretion of the Gover-
uior of the Territory and his land com
missioner, with the land board trail
ing on behind. The Hilo Tribune has
had occasion more than once to crit
icise our homestead laws, the manner
in which they have been carried out,
also at the manner in which certain
alleged homesteaders have speculated
in lands secured in this way, but we
are not in favor of the people of this
Territory being left absolutely help
less in this matter and at the mercy
of any one man, whether he be gover
nor or land commissioner or a mem
ber of the land board. ,
Accord''ng to dispatches in the Hilo
Daily Tribune this morning it appears
that Land Commissioner B. G. Riven
burg is now in Washington in the in
terest of Delegate Kalunianaole's bill
in Congress eliminating this compell
ing clause for homesteads. It is also
stated that Rivenburgh denies that
this action is in favor of the planta
tions some of which have lost land
because of this clause.
We are not particularly in favor of
this special clause, as we have held
that the same control might be secur
ed for homesteads in some more
parctical way. But we must confess
that there seems to be something
suspicious in the fact that so far as
we can discover no direct, open or
above board explanation has been
made by those seeking the elimination
of this clause as to the need for it.
The Hilo Daily Tribune would be glad
to publish such an explanation, which
possibly has been made, but escaped
We suppose that the Territory is
paying Mr. Rivenburgh to go to Wash
ington to assist in the death of this
clause; but we also feel pretty cer
tain that a referendum to the people
of this Territory would result in an
overwhelming vote against any such
action being taken by Congress.
What we need are more direct and
simple land laws, instead of making
a legal cocktail of them. Hilo Tri
bune. Be Prudent
Now that it is apparently definite
ly decided by the bureau of militia
affairs at Washington that the Nat
ional Guard of Hawaii will not be call
ed into the federal service immediate
ly, why cannot some of them be call
ed into the service of the Territory,
to guard our water supply?
We have the word of the President
for it that this nation is filled with
German spies and plotters, and we
know that someone is deliberately
scattering the germs of at least one
deadly disease in these islands. Un
der the circumstances, we believe
it to be only the 'act of ordinary prud
ence to Bee that the reservoirs are
guarded from contagion.
At the very first outbreak of war,
the regular army stationed guards over
the water supplies of Schoneld, Shatt
er and Kamehameha, and those guards
are on duty day and night. It ought
to be as important to guard the citi
zens' supply as ;hat of the soldiers.
Uncle Sam does not want ou light
ing men just now, why not ut t them
