THE SMALL FARMER.
The one great domestic need of Ha
waii is the small farm of the industrious
white man. The frugal agriculturist of
France is the mainstay of his country
in thrift and virtue; and the same may
be said of the yeomanry of England in
his relation to the wealth of the British
Isles and to the high moral character
of their inhabitants. Wherever the
small farmer abounds in America there
is the citadel of cojnfort, prosperity,
religion, thrift and patriotism; and con
versely, where the small farmer has
been crowded out or kept away from
the soil by great land monopolists, pop
ulation is divided between master and
serf, wealth is in the hands of the few,
resources are comparatively unimproved
and tha common welfare is harmed
instead of helped.
Once upon a time the State of Ill
inois permitted a principality of its
most fertile soil to fall into the hands
of one Scully, an absentee landlord.
He applied the rack-rent princ pie to
his tenantry and employed the cheapest
of cheap labor upon his lands. As a
result, the most impoverished district
of the East is the Scully estate,
although its borders teem with popula
tion and industrial enterprise. The same
is true of a large part of California. It is
undeniable that the Golden State could
support a population of 20,000,00c ;
yet it has a population of but little over
a million, and some of its greatest areas
of agricultural land are owned by '.ittle.
sheen ind grain In' s. Alien labor

Vlerc ii Hawaii, if Spreckels had his
way, the same condition would be
repeated. Fortunately the inability of
any land baron to get the crown prop
erty in fee simple has left these Islands
a wide margin of productive soil upon
which the small farmer may yet be
established for his own good and for
the purpose of adding to the safeguards
of civil liberty and to the means
of revenue and self-support.
It is the wise policy of the Hawaiian
Government to make these lands avail
able and to induce immigration to them.
As the leases expire they could be put
on the market at a low price with an
improvement proviso, whereat, we have
no doubt, a large new population could
be gathered from the States. That
Hawaii would be the gainer by such a
stroke of enterprise there can be no
The ex Princess Kauilani has to day
reached the age of eighteen, whereat
the Star proffers her the assurance of
its distinguished consideration. May
she have many happy returns of the day,
and may she come to the knowledge
that, ir. these times, when thrones totter
and the people of the world are girding
themselves for home rule, the post
of honor is the private station. It
would be a wise thine, in view of
her future happiness, to give her
a few years of study in the United
States. That would acquaint her with
many of the liberal ideas and principles
which will sway these Islands in time
to come and prepare her for a philoso
phic acceptance of her destiny.
Our Royalist friends proclaim that
"all will be well" when Ministtr Willis
arrives. Meantime the few natives and
half whites who have an interest in
politics begin to show impatience at
prophecies that are all sail and no
anchor. It cannot be a Rreat while
before they will refuse to listen to pre
dictions tht never predict and will
press upon their mendacious leaders
for an explanation of past fakes.
1 1 may be that Minister Willis will
arrive on the Oceanic to morrow and
hat some news will then be had of
Mr. Blount's report. The vessel ought
to get in at a rather early hour. In
that event the reading public will find
a remarkably complete epitome in to
morrow's Star of all the happenings
which have special interest to the Ha
The appearance of the uniformed
forces of the Hawaiian Government
upon dress parade last Saturday was all
that could have been desired by the
peace-loving and property-owning peo
pie of Honolulu. Aside from the
achievements of the drill the personnel
of the force drew compliments from
.citizens and foreigners and (rom naval
men present, and was an assurance cf
good soldiership in time of need. Men
of the most responsible class wire
numerous in the ranks, content to cany
muskets and obey orders. The lesson
of the spectacle could not have been
tnrown away upon the acute Royalist
observers who were present.
The Australia should arrive at San
Francisco to morrow with a solution of
what the papers have doubtless been
calling the "Miowera Mystery."
The sight of a blue uniform Satur
day gave our cotiscience-smitten friends
of the Hohmua a touch of the rabies.
MORE TROUBLE AT EWA.
Attempted Rescue of Prisoners From
Marshal Hitchcock and others under
his department have had an eye on the
Chinese and Japanese located at Ewa
since the recent murder there, and it
was determined long since to clean out
the gang of Asiatic thieves, gamblers
and cut-throats which have invested
that vicinity. Detectives Larsen and
Hoyle were detailed on the job, and on
Saturday made a raid on a gambling
den near the Ewa Pump Works. They
were accompanied hytwo native officers,
and succeeded in capturing four
Chinese and a lot of implements used
in Chinese gambling games.
When the officers were about to start
with their prisoners, the big bell on the
plantation was rung and in two or three
minutes nearly every Chinese on the
not was on the scene, armed with
stones, pick-handles, sticks and clubs of
everv description. 1 here were some
two hundred of them in the gang, ana
thev demanded the instant release of the
prisoners. Larsen and rJ.yle at once
drew their pistols, and advancing on
ihe mob, threatened to shoot the first
one who moved. The sight of the
weapons and the determined attitude of
the i fficers cowed the Chinese and thej
finally withdrew. In the meantime the
native officers had got the prisoners out
of sight and they were soon jointd by
the two detectives, and the wnoie p.irty
then made their way to town.
