THIS OAK DEN ISLAND. TUESDAY, MAY 1, 1317.
H UHUHU HOME
If the rumor proves correct that
a bill has been introduced in the
senate to withdraw the Kaauhuhu
homesteads from settlement, and
the drawing of these homesteads
is stopped, it will be a great disap
pointment to those who have made
application for land.
Quite a number of young men
who are just starting in life have
anticipated getting homes here.
Thev are the kind of men the Ter
ritory needs, and would make good
citizens. Thev ought to be attach
ed to the soil, and this is the only
way possible, in a community
where practically all the land ex
cept government land is held in
the iron grip of corporation.
It would be a great pity if the
influence of monied interests in
the senate of Hawaii should defeat
this distribution of land to citizens
after it has all been arranged for
by the Land office, surveyed, ad
vertised and the day for the draw
ings set. It will be a great mis
carriage of justice and right if cer
tain influences at work in the sen
ate are allowed to prevent the bill
to pass, that would reduce the ap
praisement of this land from $100
an acre to $15 an acre, as the form
er price puts the land beyond the
reach of deserving young men who

An Antiquarian Discovery
Some distance makni of the Cath
olic church in the midst of the lava
fields and lantana, there is an in
teresting ecclesiastical ruin which
will strike one as a surprise in this
country. It is a rude but massive
shrine after the manner o f be
nighted Roman Catholic lands in
the Old World. It is sort of great
cairn of rough stone, lf or 18 feet
high, of a pyramidal shape, with
buttressing wings and spiral stair-:
ways, while on the lee side there
is an arched recess, six or seven
feet high, with a similar smaller
one flanking it on the right. These
recesses have evidently been in
tended to shelter images of saints.
The structure is said to have
been the work of one Mika and
his followers, who were ardent
Roman Catholics, built some 30
years ago or more. Kvidently the
builders exhausted their resources
on the rock-work and were unable
to finance the images.
We commend this bit of anti
quarian industry to the attention
of the Kauai Historical Society,
and warn them against being
gulled into the idea that it is a
piece of ancient Hawaiian temple
homesteading in the house will
rally for this cause and see to it
that a little clique in the senate,
who stand for the monopoly of
land by corporations, are not al
lowed to give a knockout blow to
a land-owning citizenship, Ko
Government Is Preparing to
Take Control of FocdstufFs
Washington, April 24 The pro
duction . conservation an,i distribu
tion (if food supplies is one of the
most important and deeply consid
ered matters now engaging the at
tention of the legislative and exe
cutive branches of the national
government, which are preparing
to take measures looking to gov
ernment control of such supplies.
The senate agric ultural commit
tee yesterday look up the question
of the rapid increase in food prices
and began an inquiry, by means
of a public hearing, into the
charges of manipulation and ex
tortion that have been freely
made. The idea of the senate is
to find out whether the present
high prices are justified by condi
tions or whether they are due to
arbitrary action by big dealers who
largely control supplies.
The federal trade commission
issued a call yesterday to the
Governors of all the States to
send representatives to Washing
ton to confer on April 30 on mea
sures looking to the co operation
of the several States with the na
tional government along the line
of increasing food production and
Secretary of Agriculture Hous
ton declared ycstci day tint five
big farmers' organizations have
promised their support to the gov
ernment in the steps it is taking
to meet the food situation. Thev
have gone so f;tr, lie said, as to
declare that thev would e'en en
dorse legislation giving the fed
eral government power to fix the
maximum prices at which food
stulfs shall be sold.
Another important movement
toward increasing the nation's
food supply was announced by
the department of hibnr, which, is
sued a statement to the effect
that it had undertaken to mobi
lize a million boys between the
ages of fifteen and nineteen as
William Jennings Bryan is to
add his voice to the widespread
appeal to the nation to devote
evejy energy toward meeting the
demand for food to feed not only
America but the world. It was
announced vesterday that the
former secretary of state would
tour the We'st to spread the ap
peal of the department of agricul
ture that million.? of additional
acres be sown to grains and other
food stuffs. -Advertiser.
