HOMESTEAD SITUATION IS
NOT EXAGGERATED; BAILEY
Albert Horner, territorial sugar ex
pert, and O. T. Bailoy, commission
or of public lands, who returned
from Hilo Saturday, reported the
seriousness of tho Waiakea home
stead situation is not exaggerated,
says tho Advertiser. They are to -re

of the 1922 cano and the prospects

al homesteaders and other indebted

to secure that would shed light on
tne luture prospects of tho colony
"We cannot vet sav iust what tho
particular trouble is, nor what the
solution is," said Bailey, "but some
thing must be done, else many of
tlio Homesteaders will no broke and
head over heels in debt.
"The Waiakea mill has already ad
vanccd moro than $C0O)O0 to tho
Homesteaders and will probably ad
vanco still moro to tide them over
tho current season.
'Tho low price of sugar Is one
factor in the situation. The home
steaders, lacking cash, have been
unable to cultivate their fields nron

event It is easy to anticipate the

simply have to let go their home

overhead charges as it is.
"Some of tho homesteaders them

to take caro of their fields and har

Ing stury of a young man who coir
