A Few Things Concerning
The famous "Kapaa Lands" are
at last before the public and will
actually be opened. However,
there seems to be a nigger 111 the
woodpile in tact a whole family
of them. It may appear to the
reader, that in dealing with this
land question, I am always on
dress parade with a chip on my
shoulder that I am a "knocker."
But I am not. I simply want to
see fairplay. In the advertisement
appearing in this paper, ic states
pretty plainly that no settlement
association can be formed. Well,
just the same, there is a settle- 4,

grow out of an attempt to Have
justice done. It certainly does
seem strange that the land depart
ment can't get down to bed-rock
and do things in a manner above
criticism, In this instance, it de
clares against hoinesteadiug by a
certain agreement, and virtually
cuts out a proposition of this , kind
when our local men are concerned,
but apparently grants special
privileges to outsiders. The pub
lic is anxious to gef on the inside
o f the w o r k s and i f I am
seeing things in their true light,
there is this consolation I have
plenty of company.
Then, too, the site for the new
pineapple factory for Kapaa is
attracting atteniou. The company
wants no "less than 25 acres. I
know that the factory is to be one
of immense size but it is not likely
to ever spread over that area of
and. It is barely possible, How-
ever, mat as tne pineapple minis
try grows, there will be other
factories spring up, and in case
the land is all owned by the pres
ent concern, the new business
would have no room for wharfage
and would therefore be subjected
to terms of the original company,
etc. I cannot see where more
than five acres of beach should be
sold to any one firm. If 25 acres
they must have, let it run back
from the beach. 1 he beach be
