If it is what it purports to be.
a strike pure and simple for high
er wage and better living condi
tions, it is a matter of adjustment
between the strikers and the em
ployers. To the unprejudiced gen
eral public it would seem as
though radical demands'on top of
what labor is already receiving in
these days of phenominal bonus
remuneration, are unreasonable
and unjustifiable. However, that
is a matter of business adjustment
between the parties thereto.
Tint if it is, what many intelli
gent persons see in it, a deliberate
and determined attempt 1o ruin
the simar business in these Is
lands, or to wrest it from the
the American interests and con
trol, that by long years of patient
industry, intelligence and enter
prise, have built up. that is a
very different matter and merits
very different treatment, of the
sharpest and most drastic kind. If
it comes to self-defense and the
protection of the industry, anil the
Islands, to Americanism, we are
all involved, whether we have any
direct sugar interests or not. We
would not. "stand for" Herman
domination of the industry and
Ihe Islands. we will not "stand
for" Oriental domination.
If anything will precipitate
Government by Commission from
Washington; and if anything will
make us welcome it with open
arms, if will be. the menace of for
eign domination, even though it be
thinly veneered in some measure
by a simulated Americanism, from
the mouth out.

IS L S1) POLICY1
According to latest advices Sec. I
Lane has recommended to the
House Committee on Territories
that leases of highly productive
cultivated lands in these Islands.!
be sold to the highest bidder on 11 i
leasehold basis for a term of say
!." years, and that other and pre
sumably less productive lands be
opened up for hoinesteading.
This will very materially
change the aspect of the home
steading business in the future,
dependent, of course, largely upon
Ihe att itude of the Administration
and the Land Department. If
second-class lands only are to be
opened for hoinesteading, it means
good-bye, under ordinary condit
ions, and probable prices, to the
dreams of prosperity of the indus
trious homesteader; and it means
eventually the decline of the home
We can hardly believe that any
such radical change is contemplat
ed. Probably the report, of the
Lane recommendation is incorrect.
