Superintendent of Public Works
Ch.irles R, Forbes And Lnnd Com
missioner R. G. Rivenburgh also
spoke for a few minutes to the
homesteaders. Ail of the talks were
made from the tipper lanai of the
schoolhouse, the crowd listening
from the yard below.
Though the meeting had been
set for 10.30, the governor's party
did not arrive until an hour later
Through some mistake it had been
thought that the meeting was to
be at the Kapahi school, and it
was to this place that the pany
went first before arriving at Ka
p.ia. Until late in the afternoon the
homes-leaders met the governor,
one bv ore or in groups, answer
ing the questions which he put to
them regarding their lands, and
questioning him in turn. The
party did not arrive in Lihue un
til nearly 6 o'clock that night.
The following are the questions
which the Governor asked the
homesteaders of Kapaa-Waipouli

19. Would an agreement cover
ing money and laboi advances for
a term of five years be satisfactory
to you ?
20. Are you aware the Govern
ment has never approved agree
ments covering a period exceeding
five years and that the great major
ity cover but two to four years?
Sunday morning Governor Pink
ham accompanied by Mr. Larrison
went to the Kealia neighborhood
to look over water matters, Laud
Commissioner Rivenburgh follow
ing in another machine, with Mr
Wishard. The journey was con
tinned on beyond Kilauea and
finally down almost to Hanalei,
the investigators returning in time
for luncheon at Hotel Lihue.
Karlv in the afternoon Colonel
Broadbent called for the Governor
and took him and several of his
parly to Wuimea where the two
.-local companies of the National
Guard were inspected. The in
spection took place in front of
Hofgaard's store, after which the
Governor made a speech in which
he complimented the men on the
fine showing made by them.
From Waimea the party return
ed to Eleele where a football game
between National Guard teams
was in progress, arriving back in
Lihue in time for dinner.
The Governor and most of the
party spent Sunday evening quiet
ly at the hotel.
Yesterday morning bright and
early the executive headed for
Kealia to look over the forest re

He also visited the Kapaa and
Kapahi homesteads and met Col

While the engineer of the Makee
Sugar Company, and others have
ognizance of the efforts to make a

publicity because Mr. Larrison has
not Ik'cii able to reach his final de
termination. He has consulted Mr.

waii, who is a recognized authority

The conservation of water and
its economic and just distribution
requires capital. The Territorial
government has no capital for this
On several visits of Col. Spald
ng this phase of the subject has
been discussed. I stated by my
self that turning the conservation
and distribntion of water to any
one single private interest would
be bad public policy, and that I
thought a company should b e
formed to supply the capital to
conserve and distribute the water,
and that the company should in
clude local representative, unbias
ed capitalists with a representation
from the homesteaders.
This is the position in which
the matter stands today. There is
money enough belonging to Kauai
to carry out these problems equit
