The Kauai area of cultivated rice
land was 2443 acres on August 1st,
lfllS. It the labor were available to
put the K4r acres of idle rice land
under cultivation, we could increase
the rice ucreago of Kauai by 66 per
cent. Of the 1645 ncres of land that
could be put into rice only about 200
acres have been in lice before, so that
a great deal of labor would be neces
sary In order to put this land under
Although the addition of this idle
land to our present acreage of culti
vated rice land would increase our
rice area by approximately 66 percent
it is not fair to say that our rice yield
would be increased 66 percent with
the addition of the labor necessary to
cultivate all this idle land. As things
stand today, Kauai is short of the
necessary labor to cultivate the land
now uudcr rice, for its maximum yield.
That is. rice planters on many of the
plantations are raising only one crop
of rice per year because of the lack
of people to do the work necessary
for planting and harvesting two crops
of rice from the same land per year.
With sufficient lahoT to cultivate the
idle rice lands and to restore the old
system of raising two. crops of rice
on the same land, on all of the rice
plantations, our annual rice crop
could undoubtedly bo increased by 100
percent, instead of 66 percent.

The following somewhat close trans
lation of a hit of the "History of the
Koloa Church," by Rev. S. K. Kaulili,
ind Henry Make, will be of Interest
as a resume ot some 01 ine cnanges
of the laSt century hero as seen
through the eyes of an intelligent Hawaiian.
On profound consideration it Is evi
dent that there are three stages of
time on this earth, viz:
1. The time passed by.
2. The time now here.
3. The time coming on.
We all know that there has been a
great change from the time if the
coining of the Word of God up to this
'Ihis is some ninety-seven years,
during which the word of-tiod haa
spread abroad in this beloved land of
ours. Some of these changes are as
1. The change of dwellings: from
the grass house to the frame house
made of wood from America.
2. From the absolute lack of
schooling to the teaching of letters in
the mother tongue, Hawaiian, and
then from that to English, the lang
uage that is now filling the earth. And
now this language has been made the
official, language by the Legislature,
and has been adopted as the language
of the schools, so that the mother
tongue is dead and without authority.
3. From the time of no plantations,
to the time of the Koloa Sugar Com
pany, and a land full of plantations.
4. From the government of the
( lnels to that of a King, and then to
a provisional government, and then
to a Republic, and finally to a Terri
tory of America.
r. From narrow trails suitable only
for Indian file, and going straight up
the hills and down the valleys, to
ways wider and wider, up to those 01
today. From bare dirt roads up to
those of today, finished in oil and as
phalt. From the days when you went
right down into the water and waded
across, to the time of wooden bridges
anil scows wooden uoalg carrying
people across the wide rivers, to the
days of steel and cement bridges,
From going afoot to mounting a horse,
from the horse to the bullock cart,
from the bullock cart to the carriage
trom the carriage to the automobile
of this time.
6. From traveling by water in tiny
canoes to boats, from boats to schoon
ers with sails, from schooners with
sails to little steamers, and from these
to the big iriini steamers of our day
1. Wages: From cloth to tobacco.
from 12V2 cents a day to Fa) cents
then 7F cents and on to $1.1 Ml, $1.2"
?I.aO a day; or by the mouth, from
1.1.00 a month up to 100. or even
S. From the time when the coinage
of Hawaii was copper with the image
of Kauike-aouli or Kamehaineha 111.
issued in IS 17, to the more recent
silver coinage of King Kalakaua I, and
then the coinage of the great country
of these days.
!. From the time when these Is
lands were covered with a native for
est from the mountains to the ebbing
tides of the sea, to the days when
these were cut down and sold, leaving
the land bare far into the uplands,
until the planting of foreign trees
from America lias somewhat redeem
ed this condition as at present.
Numerous statements have been
made regarding tire number of acres
of idle rice land by advocates of the
importation of Chinese labor. For the
purpose of having a better under
standing of the matter, and fully In
forming itself .regarding the situation
th? Territorial Food Commission has
.rone into the matter, requesting tho
ounty agents to report on idle rice
land areas in their respective counties.
