tary of the Homesteaders" association,
explained that the settlement of the
contract question now hinged on
three things and called upon Senator
Chas. Rice who was present at the
meeting of the homesteaders, to ex
plain what was now expected of the
homesteaders of the first, second and
third series, who have for some years
past been having their cane milled at
the Makee Sugar Company's mill un
der an old contract.
Senator Rice then explained that a
three cornered agreement existed be
tween the Makee Sugar Company, the
Homesteaders' Committee and the
Government by which (1st) the con
tracts already in effect rhould con
tinue for four crops until the 1923
crop had been harvested at which
time the new contract drawn up In
Honolulu last week would become
valid and go into effect for six years
affer 1923. (2) the plantation must
make certain promised extensions of
railroad over lands now controlled by
the homesteaders, which extensions
are to faciliate harvesting, and (3)
the homesteaders holding land desired
for right of way for these extensions
must agree to deed back to the Terri
tory of Hawaii rights of way for rail
roads thus contemplated. Senator
Rice also explained further that if the
homesteaders would get together on
this mafter the government would
build a bridge across the Kapahi
stream to facilitate the extension of
the Mimina spur of the present rail
road system, which Mr. Rice said was
or.e of the four proposed extensions
that were to be constructed by the
Makee Sugar Company at a cost of
When Senator Rice had completed
his explanation of matters, the home
steaders went on record in favor of
deciding to deed back to the govern
ment any rights of way that were de
sired for the proposed extensions and
for perminent track already laid.
Also all those present who already
had contracts with the mill, expressed
themselves In favor of accepting the
old contract until 193 crops had been
harvested and then adopting the new
contract Just drawn up.
Near the close of the meeting
Senator Rice explained to the
homesteaders the plans that were
being formulated for the new water
company. A great deal of interest
was displayed by those present in this
explanation as there wbh much of
news in his statements. He said that
more than a million dollars were
needed for this scheme which would
bring all the government water be
tween Moloaa and Hanamaulu onto
the land for irrigation purposes. The
purpose of the company was to pre
vent the waste of water much of
which was flowing to the sea at pres
ent and to put the now idle govern
ment lands under cultivation.
The amount of water to be so
brought into use would amount to about
95 million gallons daily minimum
now, and the lands upon which
would be used a total area of over
10,000 acres of government land,
three thousand acres of which was
now in homesteads at Kapaa.
The homesteaders in order to as
sure the company organizing a re
turn for the capital invested would
have to pay about $24.00 per acre for
every crop of cane harvested. This
would be the toll for the use of the
water, and would include distribution,
and maintenance of ditches and rese
voirs. The actual cost to the home
steaders would be about $3.50 per mil
lion gallons provided all who could
make use of the irrigation water
would join the company and agree to
take the water for 30 years. Mr. Rice
also explained that water at the above
rate was very low priced, and that
water experts in the territory had not
previously heard of water being sold
at such a low figure.
Upon hearing the report and ex
planation of the Senator the Associa
tion upon the advice of Mr. Meheula
and- Mr. Aguiar appointed a commit
tee of seven to work nmong the home
steaders to get the homesteaders'
opinions regarding the new water
project and to work for further de
velopment of the project.
The members of the committee ap
pjointed were Joe Correira, J. P. I5et
tencourt, Sam K. Kaahu, Donat Sta
son, Carl Jensen, M. R. Aguiar and
A. S. Bush.

The Coming Census:
What It Will Record
Scope of .the Fourteenth Census
Washington. Nov. 2. That the Four
teenth Decennial Census, on which
the actual enumeration work will be
gin January 2. 1920, is to be the most
important ever taken is shown by the
fact that the Act of Congress provid
ing for this census expressly increased
the scope of the inquiries so as to in
clude forestry and forest products,
two subjects never covered specifical
ly by any preceding census, etc.
The inquiries to be made relating
to population, manufactures, mine3,
quarries and agriculture were also ex
tended in their scope by Congrc38, the
keenest interest over the forthcoming
census having been shown by the
members of the census committees of
both the House and Senate while the
law was under consideration.
The statistics gathered on mining
will include all oil and gas wells.
Many startling developments in this
important branch of the Nation's re
sources are looked for by census oftV
cials. The figures gathered in Texas.
Oklahoma and Kansas will no doubt
prove to be those most eagerly sought
for, as shown by inquiries already re
ceived by the Census Bureau.
The compilation and gathering of
forestry and forest products statistics
will be in charge of a special force of
experts. The accurate and compre
hensive figures gathered concerning
these vital natural resources will be
much in demand, and the comparisons
made with conditions existing before
the war will be of great interest.
Agricultural statistics will likewise
be the subject of special effort on the
part of the Census Bureau as the im
portance of farming is being realized
by the average citizen far more than
