OUR LAND POLICY IMMIGRATION.
Within tlic limits of a newpr-uper article it
woul-1 be imf-iMe to go into anj detailed state
ment3 rogaHing tiic benefits to be dorivci from
nn alteration in the existing land policy of tbe
government ; but as it requires no verj cloee ob
servation to mark the narrowness of thia policy,
it also requires but little intelligence to bee that
a change to one of more liberality would be
fraught with incalculable advantage to the coun
try. Heretofore the policy ha9 been only to lease
the Iandd belonging to government, and that for
short periods, five years being the usual limit.
uccaetonally however, leases have been made for
fifteen years, and sales have been made but the
policy is altogether in favor of short leases only.
Slt is scarcely necessary to remark, that land
leaded for so short a period as five years will not
be improved by the lessee.? His object will rather
be to denude it of everything of value during the
continuance of Lis term ; and this procesa being i
repeated from time to time as the land may be
relet, it must forever remain in its unimproved
state, its fertility decreasing in proportion as it
is used for agriculture, and its water-supply fall
ing proportionally shorter as the forests are
stripped from it, until finally it is reduced from
its primitive condition of fertility to a mere bar
ren, lit only for the scanty subsistence of browsing
animals. Contrast with this deterioration of
value the benefit to the treasury of the money
which might be obtained from its sale; the neces
Biry increase of its value by the improving pur
chaser ; the annual contribution to the exchequer
in the shape of taxes ; the increased product of
the soil, to swell the nggregate of national
wealth ; the encouragement to industrious settlers
that would thus be afforded ; and is there not a
sufficiency of reasons why we should adopt the
policy of selling instead of leasing the government
lands? The country is in need of both popula
tion and capital ; but with Euch a shortsighted
land policy as ours we have no encouragement to
expect a commensurate supply of cither.
The following extract from a letter from Maka
wao, (Maui) written by one who has farmed in
the Western States of America, we think worthy
of publication in this connection, as showing the
general impression of the short-sightedness of
government which strangers must receive when
here seeking for opportunities to settle :
u This, the kula iart of Makawao, is the best land 1 have
seen in this country on which to raise a winter crop. It is
fine, light, warm soil. Corn and potatoes will be ready to use
in three months from planting. The land belongs to govern
ment, and I am tokl that it will not be sold at any price, and
only rented for a term of not more than five years, at $1 per
acre per annum. If government would have it surveyed and
sell or give away each alternate lot, as they do in the United
States, it would soon be a source of profit in the way of taxes,
anj enhance the value ot what is left tenfold. Castor oil. cof-
A-e and ramie will grow there, and many other things that
ooght soon to be a source of revenue to the country."
i Only a small portion of the lands owned by the
government and the crown is at present under
lease, and, thia mostly to graziers and sugar
planters Many of the lands are leased solely for
the forests they possess, and are denuded in the
most relentless manner during the term of the
lease of all the value they contain, and often re
vert back to government in a state of desolation
The policy of holding on to lands originated in
the early days of the government, and waa adopt
ed in concession to the feeling of the chiefs, which
waa strongly averse to anything which seemed to
them to savor of foreign encroachment. This
imagined foothold of the foreigner was regarded
by them with a jealous eye, for they felt in their
ignorance that to sell the soil was to part with
the national independence. Under the circum
stances, thia was perhaps a natural conclusion ;
but time and increased intelligence should have
long since banished such sentiments as ground
less, and moreover as detrimental to that very in
dependence which the natives were and are so
anxious " to maintain. And now tho question
comes, are we to continue to be bound down by
thia narrow and detrimental policy, this relic of
semi-barbarous diplomacy, or is a more liberal
spirit hereafter to direct the political economy of
Hawaii nei ?
In the first place, an increase of population is
necessary to an increase of the national prosper
ity ; but the quality and manner of introducing
population may very materially affect for better
or worse our condition. The kind of population
introduced aa mere laborers on our plantations,
being placed in circumstances rather adverse to
nature in regard to marital relations and the
other tica of family, beyond the actual money
value of their services are rather a barrier than
otherwise to the ecneral welfare. Families of
ecttlcra are wanted, rather than the lone cooliea
who only tend to augment the already existing
disparity between the sexes in our population ,
and who, with a natural tendency to traffic and
barter are agriculturists only so long aa their first
contracts to labor compel them to be so. At the
end of these they become peddlers, arti3ana and
shop-keepers, pursuits which are already over
crowded. But still, without more inducements
than are now offered, it ia useless to entertain
hopes that a better clasa of population will ever
migrate to our islands. When we consider that
there is land sufficient to maintain more than half
a million of people, where a population of 6carcc
fifty thousand exists, there ia ample evidence of
the waste of our policy.
The large tracts of crown lands are subject to
still greater restraints, for the policy in regard to
them is a fixture by law, they cannot be 6old
except by an Act of the Legislature. Vastly bet
ter would it be if these landa, a great part of
which are literally wasted as far aa value ia con
cerned, could be surveyed, plotted out into lota
and sold to actual settlers, the government agree
ing in the meantime to assume the annual pay
ment to the crown of a sum equal in amount to
that at present raised from their rental. A poli
cy of thia sort, while it would subtract nothing
"that rightfully belongs io tho royal purse, would
be putting into the best of circulation the value
these landa represent.
The natioual prosperity has for some time been
almost wholly supported by the production of
sugar; but as this interest is in danger of being
seriously straitened by the growing dearth of
labor, and the difficulty of replenishment from
former sources of supply, it would behoove the
government at this particular juncture to enter
with a will on the task of devising some plan
whereby the emergency may be met. Various
suggestions have been made as to the best source
from whence to draw our needed supply of popu
lation. India, Europe and Polynesia have in
turn been mentioned ; but the mere supply of
present pressing needs for labor has been the
principal object of all these schemes. There has
been no inducement offered or planned for the
immigration of families. A provision for fami
lies, or at lca6t for a large if not an equal propor
tion of females, would be an inducement to the
male laborer and agriculturist to come hither ;
and families and females are certainly what a na
tion needs where the preponderance of males is
so large as ia shown by our last census.

TESTIMONY IN COURTS OF JUSTICE.
The aui-junt of falc testimony in cufc tried in
or CourU ncems startling enough now, and when
we corridor the various natiounlitici? and religi
ons of witncf.sc?, there i not much rran to hope
that it will Iktcgbcc lees a the intereeta of such
people increase. Attempts have been made to
introduce modifications of the law which prohi
bits parties from testifying for themselves, but
thus far unpucccfully. Such modifications have
generally been introduced into the laws of the
several states of the American Union and Eng
land. The objection urged against them is, that
they are likely to induce more perjury. We are
of the opinion that the party w ho wishes false
testimony usually finds it; and that if he were
allowed to testify himself; there would be a better
chance to detect him in the falsehood than when
he acts through others, while none can deny that
an innocent party is often unjustly punished for
no other cause than that his own testimony can
not be allowed. We hope the next Legislature
will look into this matter, and keep up with
modern reform on the subject.
TnE statement is made by our cotemporary,
that very little interest is shown in the election
by the foreigners generally, and very few of them
will vote;" and then the effort is made to dis
courage any interest that might exist by adding,
" an election (as Representative) reflects no honor
to any man who values his reputation," fee. A
very hasty and ill-considered remark; one that,
on second thoughts, the editor would not have
printed. If the character of the representative
body generally has not of late years been such as
to reflect honor on the nation, and legislation has
been crude and careless, the reason is found in
the fact that foreigners, short-6ighted as to their
own interests, have neither gone to the polls
nor endeavored to exercise a legitimate influence
for the election of suitable men for the office.
However true it may be that this apathy is to be
traced to the abrogation of the Constitution of
1852, it is not however true that in the Assembly
as now constituted the popular voice is practically
suppressed. The Gazette, by its sneering, dis
paraging tone, ia apparently encouraging this
injurious apathy of foreigners which, if con
tinued, can have but one result the handing
over of the business of law. making and the
management of government to native Hawaiians
entirely. And this we all know .would hasten
the catastrophe for which some few in our miJr-t
are ardently hoping the loss of Hawaiian inde
pendence. Is ia however encouraging to observe
that, contrary to the assertion of the Gazette,
foreigners are this year taking more than usual
interest in the elections, and that many of them
Among the many instances of careless legisla
tion (to give it no worse name) afforded by the
history of the session of 1874, is the " Act to
abolish the office of Secretary of War and of the
Navy. 'J Thero waa certainly nothing objectiona
i?le trrtho astensiblo intention ot the Act, which
was to relieve tho Department of Foreign Affairs
of the burden of a tail-piece that was neither
useful nor ornamental; but there is one remarka
ble provision that ia worthy of especial attention.
It ia declared that " His Majesty may, by special
commission, confer the dutiea of said office on a
Commander-in-Chief;" who, however, ia to re
ceive no pay for hia services as euch; and it is
further provided that no part of any appropri
ation which may be made for military purposes
shall be drawn from the Treasury except by order
of such Commander-in-Chief, whose duty it shall
be to account for the particulars of such dis
bursements biennially to the Legislature." We
are not aware that any euch appointment as is
here contemplated has been gazetted; but just
look at the lax and unguarded nature of the law!
Ministerial responsibility, as contemplated by the
Constitution, is quite ignored in the matter of
expenditures nominally for the military, but
which might be for many other purposes. " Sup
port of military," figured in the last appropria
tion bill at 47,470. Under the Act of which
we arc speaking thia large sum could be drawn
from the Treasury in one entire lump, by the
Commander-in-Chief, and used at hia sole discre
tion, and no Minister would be responsible.
To the Editor of the Tacific Commercial Advertiser :
Sir : I perceive that you have in your valuable
paper reverted again to the important topic of immi
gration. As it appears to be conceded on all sides
that the East Indian race is the only one which can
be introduced into this country with any degree of
present satisfaction and ultimate benefit, I would
urge that application be made, through the proper
channel, to the British Government for assistance in
this all important matter. If a refusal be given,
then attention must be turned elsewhere.
I am afraid that our chances of getting this kind
of labor are small indeed, knowing as I do the strong
feeling existing in England against importing labor
even to British Colonies. The machinery each colony
is compelled by law to employ in order to avail them
selves of this labor is at once complicated and expen
sive. An agency in Calcutta which, by the way,
is the district from which most of the coolies come,
and not Madras is one costing a deal of money.
Chartering ships with a proper medical staff on
board, good medical attendance and hospitals on each
plantation, schools for the children and a free pas
sage back to India at the end of five years should
any desire it, are a few of the conditions imposed
upon a British colony employing the India coolie.
It will be expected that, if immigration of this kind
be allowed into what may be termed a foreign coun
try, these laws will be tightened rather than relaxed.
Such being the cose, it is a matter of legitimate'
enquiry whether this kingdom will be prepared to
expend so great a sum of money as the introduction
of this system will undoubtedly cost. In the British
Colonics the first outlay is easily met by means of a
I notice that a correspondent speaks of obtaining
as many women 'ad children as men. This is of
course most desirable, but it is found to be an im
possibility. Iaihae early days of immigration so few
females came with the men that the evil became in
tolerable, and now the law is for SO per cent. (I
think it is) of the number on each ship to be ferur'es.
I am not very certain that I am quite exact as to
this per centage, as I am writing from memory, but
it is not very far out. "Would it not be well for the
question to be asked of the British Government
whether an application for labor woald be entertain
ed, and if answered in the affirmative, then a care
fully prepared scheme could be submitted.
I am still of opinion that European labor can be
obtained, if only some arrangement could be made
whereby a certain portion of land could be given to
each family for the purpose of cultivation. As I said
in a former letter, there would be no difficulty in ob
taining a supply of labor from England could a fair
inducement be held oat to the agricultural class.
P. S. I noticed that you have fallen into the very
common error of calling Demerara an island. It it

Iii j?, (said ay Utjc'e.) a si.i'i t time, lu: a (v
dijs in fjet after reLttitg to j'.u my !ir-t ,ttry about
indiA-ruLtcr, I was returcing Loitie ty the sa:i.o
road that led by the little Court hru-c n pictur
esquely lsicatcl in the IVi le cf India trees As I
approached that little Court house an J the jail thit
stood by it, for I arrroache J that jail ; I saw skele-
! tens cf horses and mules tied to the fence and trees,
) patiently waiting, I should saj froats ! Oa their
! tender backs were all the different shapes, styles and
! conditions of saddles, from the time of ' saddle ye
I an ass," down to the very latest fashion cf " Cap
j tain Jinks cf the horse marines."
! I could easily surmise there was more business in
Court than usual ; there could not haTe teen a bel
! ter outside show (of tones) if tbe great Mcgul him
! self were present. As I gazed cn this lean crowd of
quadrupeds, (for many of them were leaning against
; the fence to hold themselves up.) I thought there
roust be the settling up tf some drunken spree in
j Court ; and besides, if the great Mogul was there I
j wanted to see him and make his acquaintance
i which I afterwards did. And as I wanted to learu
i all I could in relation to the vegetable kingdom, so
I that I would be able to tell you all the facts in regard
! to inJi v-rubber, I conclude 1 to go ia and see what
; had caused this great commotion, in the midst of
! this Sober, sectarian, law-abiding, liberty-loving,
j high-state-of-niorality viciuiiy
j On entering the Court house, (said my Uncle,) I
! thought I was duly sober, (although I had been
locking at some persons drinking) but it cccurred
to me the Court was double, that be was not himself
at all that is, he WjS not all the Court himself.
By his side appeared another, an elderly gentleman
of portly mein he looked like a statue hewn out of
human llesh in that beautiful, graceful, symmetrical
style generally attributed to, aud known as a Lager
Beer keg ! This person, 9 I afterward learned, was
really the leading and controlling spirit of the Court.
And, (said my Uucle.) I shall designate him as
Court Xo. 1, numbering him according to size, as a
farmer does his squashes. The cause before their
honors the Court was a preliminary examination
of the King vs. James Whistlegood, charged with
attempt (it is a hard word to spell, said my Uucle,
and I will not mention it.)
The testimony was fully ventilated pro and con,
Court No. 1 apparently having his own way, and
his own say in everything. He was morose, intoler
ent, extravagant in his zeal to crush the poor trem
bling culprit, who stood cowering beneath his frown.
And wheu failing in his expectation to find evidence
leading to conviction, he consoled himself, and
strengthened his spirit of persecution, by saying
" It made no difference anyhow, there had been men
murdered right here in this district for two dollars
and a half." Drawing his inference, that if ever
there had been a man murdered for two dollars and
a half, cf course this prisoner and every one else
against whom a criminal charge is laid, must be
guilty. But perhaps, (said my Uncle) we would be
doing him injustice to believe this idea originated in
his gigantic mind He had some noble precedents
to lead him to this conclusion. Old Tomposity said,
Somebody did it, and if this fellow can not prove
himself innocent, he must be presumed to be guilty."
And the Pennsylvania Judge in his charge to the
jury said : " This person is charged with a serious
crime, and inasmuch as he ha9 failed to prove him
self not guilty, you will do well to bear in mind the
old maxim, that it is better to hang nine innocent
men than let one guilty one go free." However,
the evidence and the argument closed, aud the case
was submitted to the Court. Court No. 2 remarked,
" There was a good deal of evidence in both sides of
this case, and he wanted half an hour to collect the
facts." Upon which the room was cleared, the
prisoner in the mean time was placed in charge of
two deputy sheriffs and two constables for safekeep
ing. At the expiration of half an hour, with some
whistling, and rapping on the window, and some
calling out " all aboard," it was understood that
Court was called. It oppcard to me, (said my
Uncle,) that, as there was not the least cause for
prosecution, and seeing the smile that was " childlike
and bland " upon the countenance of Court No. 2,
I congratulated myself that I had guessed him rightly
this time. His honor pensively aud mildly remarked,
Mr. Whistlegood, there is no evidence to convict
Court No. 1 " Oh ! I thiuk we had better send
him to Hangtown ; there he can have all the judges
of the Supreme Court to consult."
Court No. 2 I think it is better for me and for
you, that I commit you to the Coort, so that you
will be discharged by a jury of twelve men and leave
no stain on your character."
Then, (said my Uncle,) I thought how pleasant it
