MAY BUY MILL SITE
Kekaha Plantation, of Kekaha Ka
uai, is occupying more of the land
board's time and attention now than
all others put together. The board
doesn't just know what to do with
the mill. It doesn't want to hold on
to it, and it is afraid to let go,
judging from the attitude shown thus
The Advertiser presents the pre
dicament of the board in this man
ner: Unless the territory sells outright
the mill site and labor camps of Ke
kaha plantation, it is unlikely that
capital would care to make more of
an investment iu repairs to the ex
isting mill than present necessity de
' With an antiquated mill giving
comparatively low extraction, the ter
ritory could expect a lower bid on
a lease of the plantation as a whole,
and a lesser tax return on the mill
itself. On the other hand, although
no former communication has bceu
received from the agents of the
plantation, its manager, while the
land board was on Kauai last week,
intimated that a modern mill, repre
senting an investment of approxi
mately half u million, probably
would lie made if the leaseholder
were able to buy the mill site and
labor camps outright.
At the same time, such possession
would be nine-tenths of the law and
so fur us competition from other
bidders in the future went, would
place the owners in a position am
ounting to pormanant und exclusive
occupancy. Without a mill nobody
would want the plantation.
No Decision Reached.
These were some of the considera
tions affecting the disposition of Ke
kaha lands discussed by the lii:d
board yesterday morning, without
arriving at any definite decision.
Other questions related to Irrii,-! on
and land development. The nu'iigi!
ment of Kekaha, by flooding the ma
kai lowlands of its holdings w ill sill
laden waters of the wintur storms
had built up 8(10 3cres of rich cune
yield, which yearly grows deeper and
more fertile. Tho process can uc
continued by flooding additional
lands now planted to rice, and ttatj
more land the government :aa got,
tho more it will receive In rentals.
Then there are the mauka lands of
Kekuha, of known fertility if thsy
can be irrigated, but now used f;r
grazing. By impounding the e'.'vm
waters of the upper ralnshed, it Is
believed sufficient supply can be ob
tained to piece out the dry months.
What the board is endeavoring to do
is to draw a lease fair to both par
ties liberal enough to encourage in
itiative and enterprise on the part
of the tenant and fast ' and broad
enough to safeguard all the Iniereuid
of the people.
Little Tommy Drown was always In
terested in his little baby sister. One
day he stood peering down upon it
while nurse wra singing it to sleep.
"Nurse,'' he whispered at last, "she's
nearly unconscious isn't she?"
"Yes," nodded the nurse, and con
tinued singing the lullaby.
Tommy whispered in alarm: "Then
dou't ' sing any more or you'll kill
her." livening News (London).
