The Waiakea Homestead Lots,
says the Hawaii Herald, nave
been appraised by the valuators,
.1. U. Andrews and J. M. (iouvea,
who have been engaged on the
work for sometime past. The two
appraisers have been over the
land in question and they have
amped for miles through cane
fields, carrying blueprints and
maps with them so that they
could mark down accurately what
they thought each lot of land
would be worth to a homesteader.
The result of the labor of the
appraisers is that they have de
cided that the Waiakea lands
vary greatly in- value and that
wniie some 101s are worm as
inucii as .--i.i.) an acre, other nils
are only valued at .fl.Vau acre.
That some of the cane land
classed as world !. an acre is
well worth the money, is the opin
ion of the two appraisers and they
have so reported .to Ihe (iovernor
and the Land Commissioner. That
a good deal ol the laud that is

EVERY ISLAND HAS
ITS PRICE FOR COTTAGES
Why should a cottage cost only $1000
on the Island of Kauai, yet cost ap
proximately $2000 on the Island of Ha
waii? This is' a questjon which some
of the school commissioners would
like to have solved. The idea that
lumber costs more in Hilo is a poor
excuse, according to Honolulu con
But then it is reported that the cot-
tage which would cost about $1000 on
Kauai will cost about $1300 on Oahu
and practically S1750 on Maui; so
there appears to be a progression in
price the further away one gets from
Kauai. What is the answer?
