THE CROWN LANDS.
Wo have more than once reverted to the subject
of utilizing the large tracts of land that are now
lying waste and almoet tenantless; but as the
Bulfjcct is one of such importance to the well
being of each individual as well as to the nation
at large, we have no apology to offer for reitera
ting our complaint against the narrowness of a
land policy that bears tbe impress of penny wis
dom and pound foolishness.
While pursuing the present policy of reserving
the ownership of ita lands and at the same time
professing to be in search of feasible schemes
whereby to induce the migration of people hither,
the government is presented in rather an anomal
ous aspect, and ono certainly not calculated to
invite tfiat class of people who, whilo they would
help to sustain the industries of. tbe country,
would detract nothing from the intellectual and
moral condition of its people, with whom they
would be destined to mix.
To satisfy the immediate needs of our planta
tions for labor, a few dollars premium per head
upon coolies, may suffice; but the class of people
thus induced to come among us, though supplying
temporarily what is needed, are destined even
tually to become rather a hinderance than other
wise to the ultimate object which should be kept
well in view by our government the augmenta
tion of a Fparse and still dwindling people by the
introduction of respectable settlers, physically and
morally the equals of the inhabitants for whose
benefit they would be introduced. .....
But while other countries are offering induce
ments in the way of land, and otherwise, to set
tlers, Low nre we to expect an influx of popula
tion when not only no substantial inducement
offered by our government, but actual barriers are'
set before the would-be immigrant, in the form of
a policy avowedly averse to the sale of lands, and
only limitedly in favor of leasing ? As wo have
eaid before, in regard to government and crown
lands, and especially the latter, the policy has
been to lease for short periods only, tbe limit
being generally understood to be, five years ; and;'
it is this question ot time in the leases that in
duces the lessee to increase his exertions to ex
haust as much as possible the resources of the
lands, so that they revert back at tbe end of each
lease in a depreciated condition, the ratio of
which will necessarily increase as the years roll
by, to eventuate in ultimate complote sterility.
lint the effect will not end with the ruin thus
being wrought upon tho iudividual lands, but
will be extended incidentally to adjacent lands
by the meteorological changes produced by the
denudation of forests, until the wholo. fertility of
the Islands will be materially impaired.
Shall we wait then until the land is unfitted
for the habitation of man before we offer it to the
settler, who might now be induced by liberal
offers, to come among us and lend bis material
aid to avert this condition that otherwise must
soon ensue? While there are so many countries
in the market for population and labor, to utilize
their waste lands, it seems certainly unreasonable
for us to hope to engage what we need, unless we
can come into a reasonable competition with
them ; and certainly when a prohibition is put
even upon sale by the present policy, it seems
only folly to consider ourselves competitors at all
with those who give lands and money to secure
Prior to the year 1865 it was optional with the
King whether or not he should dispose of the
crown lands as occasion offered, whether to sell
or lease ; but, in that year on the 3d of January,
an act of Legislature was' finally approved mak
ing them, as part of the Eoyal Domain, inalien
able, and that law has stood unaltered up to the
present time.' - The law also provides that no
leases of these lands shall be made for any period
exceeding thirty years. This Act, as is indicated J
by the preamble, was made to provide against the
further frittering away of these estates that had
been going on through the then two late reigns," i
the government at the same time assuming the
existing debt of the King, and issuing exchequer
bonds for the payment of the same. '. J -
Now, while accomplishing the desired object
to check the beggaring improvidence of certain
Kings, and to prevent it in subsequent reigns in
our minds it is far from fulfilling the indications of
an enlightened policy. How much better would
it have been and how much better it would be
now if the government, with an intention to
make use of the lands in a proper way, should
buy out the right and title of the Crown in them.1
As they are now inalienable, all that the Kiog
can secure from them is the rental ; and if tho
government would in exchange for them, guaran
tee the annual payment of a sum equal to tho
average yearly rents, we fail. to see that it woald
be otherwise than a fair, legitimate, and politic
action. . - ' ? . jl.
The old and ridiculous notions of primitive
times in regard to the effects of alienating terri
tory, should have long since been abandoned, and
certainly should not be entertained by a govern
ment professing to enlightenment, especially at
this time, when it is felt as an imperative necessity
that everything should be done that will in any
way tend to induce an influx of population. .
Tbe Crown lands comprise about one fifth of
he total area of the Islands, or about 700,000
crcs, most of which are under short leas s, and

they have never yet been surveyed, having (as was
n.n ;isliinn in tlm rnrlv davs of rrovernment i been
awarded by name. We understand however that
they aro now being surveyed, and that dehmte
information in regard to their extent will ere long
be acquired, when, it is to be hoped, that a defi
nite and different policy will be adopted in regard
to their disposal. Here alone are lands sufficient
in area Jo support a population many times ex
ceeding the number of our entire people, and now
hired out to proprietors who rui'U be cumbered
on a few nien'e finders.
As aj r-.jjs to this subject, we would beg to
irurodtitc fvr the consideration of our readers and
fjr the coming Legislature, the following Fensibie
rem-trk of Dr. P.Joy :
" The quaathy of happiness in a given district,
although it is piet-ille it may be increased, the
number of inhabitants remaining the eame, is
chiefly and most nnturally affected by alteration
of the numbers : tijut consequently, the decay of
population is the greatest etil that a state can
suffer; and the improvement of it the object
which ought, in all countries, to be aimed at, in
preference to tvery other political purpose whatever
4 The importance of population, -and the supe
riority of it to every other national advantage,
are points necessary to be incnlcated and to be
understood; inc. much as false estimate, or
fantastic notions of national grandeur, are per
petually drawing the attention of statesmen and
legislators from the care of this, which is at all
times th true and absolute interest of a country.'
A certain -transaction between the Hawaiian
government and an individual has lately taken
place, which has excited considerable public inter
est; We propose to lay the facts before our
readers and then to comment upon them.
In the month of January last, a Mr. M. Pecce
nini arrived here, and announced his desire to
seek a home in these islands for certain Italians
his countrymen ; in fact to found here a con
siderable colony of any number or people up to
three thousand, should the conditions prove suita
ble. This gentleman unfortunately brought no
diplomatic recommendation, although he has ex
cellent testimonials as to his personal worth.
He has also impressed many of our citizen with
hi intelligence. The account of the people he
desires to bring here is exceedingly interesting,
for they are, he say3, descendants of the Yaudois
or Waldenses, who long suffered persecutions
for their religious ' belief. ' Jsow they are con
nected with the Republican party in Italy, which
is unfavorably regarded by the government of
Victor Emanuel. Hence the lack of diplomatic
recognition by Mr. Peccenini. They are stated
to be a hard-working, industrious and moral peo
ple, skilful in Bilk culture, and dairy farming and
other industries. Evidently if the statements of
Mr. P. be true, tbey are a moet desirable set of
people to have here ; and no ono would doubt
for a moment that our patriotic government,
anxious to repopulate these islands, would have
received Mr. Peccenini with civility, heard all he
had to Bay, and made inquiries on its own ac
count as to the yalue of his propositions. And
we now proceed to give an account of the treat
ment this gentleman has actually received. Mr.
P.'s first business with the government was to
submit to the Minister of the Interior a schecac
according to which the government should assign
to the Colonists a certain amount of land and
pay for each person a certain sum of passage
money. The following is the draft of the scheme
PROJECT TOE AN ITALIAN COLONY IN THE HAWAIIAN
i' . ISLANDS.
yThyGQvtrmtni of the Hawaiian Islands wit I
grant 12,000 acres of land for an Italian Colony
to be ettablished within two years from the day of
' the concession under the following conditions ;
A The Colony is represented by three principals
or managers, to be recognized by the Hawaiian Gov
ernment. Mr. Walter M. Gibson in the interest of
the Government. Messrs. Melchior Peccenini and
Johfl Apiani in the interest of the Colonists.
2 Mr. Peccenini is to be recognized as the local di
rector of the Colony, ahd he shall be responsible for
the payment of all dues upon the land. He will
supervise the cultivation of the land, and regulate
the order of the Colonists and. promote their instruc
tion. . .
3 The Government shall fix a mil. i mum maxi
mum value upon the land of fifty cents per acre, or
a rental say of two cents per acre, or $240 per annum.
4 Should the Colony not be formed within two
years, Mr. Peccenini shall pay double the estimated
rental, or $480 per annum, and may hold the land
for the term of thirty years always at the same rate.
Thirty persons arc to be deemed sufficient for the es
tablishment of this Colony.
5 Should the colony be permanently established, the
land shall be granted gratuitously in the following pro
portions. 2,000 acres to Mr. Peccenini as compen
sation for his outlay and personal service. 100 acres
to each immigrant, who shall cultivate one-half the
quantity in five years. 200 acres to any immigrant
who shall devote his attention to pastoral purposes,
and shall procure sufficient stock for the land. After
a residence of five years, each emigrant shall receive
a royal patent for tbe section of land which he has
6 The immigrants both male and female shall be
under 40 years. ' i
7 The Government shall grant an aid of 30 per 1
capita passage money for each adult, and 20 per
oapita for such as may be rated as children or minors. A
The answer is this : f
Department of I.nteeior, t
Honolulu, January 19th, 18
Mb. Melchior Peccenini Sib : I am directed
by flis Excellency the Minister of the Interior to1
inform you that he has had under consideration your
note dated the 11th instant and the projeot for an
Italian Colony in the Hawaiian Islands, aBd to state
in reply that His Majesty's Government would look
with favor upon tbe introduction of Italian Colonists,
and that the Minister of Finance is prepared to ad
vance money at once to responsible parties resident
here in the war. cf assisted passages to the extent
suggested in your project Namely $30 for adults,
S20 for children.
-With respect to the proposal 3 of the project, by
which this Government is to fix a minimum value
upon the land of fifty cents per acre, or say a rental
of two cents per acre per annum. I am directed to
state, that the Minister of the Interior does sot quite
understand why you should require minimum value
fixed perhaps the maximum value is what was in-,
The Minister would remark ' however, that the
price to be paid for the land would depend upon its
locality and quality. Fifty cents an acre being too
much for some lands and too little for others. This
point however had better remain open until you can
ascertain whert the lands are that may be suitable
to your proposed colonists, and for information as to
the locality of the different Government lands, I beg
to refer you to Professor Alexander and Mr. C. J.
Lyons of the Surveyor's Department.
I have the honor to be your obdt. servt.
Cuas. T. Gclick, Chief Clerk.
Hereupon Mr. P. was informed that the gov
ernment lands were not under conditions favora
ble to trausference to immigrants ; but he de
termined to take land on his own account, and
on the strength cf the above letter, be accord
ingly leased a land, and wrote to the Minister ex
pressing his satisfaction that " I am assured that
the government regards with favor my projeet of
an Italian Colony, and that His Ex. the Minister
of Finance is prepared to ray advances as agreed.
I beg to say that 1 accept the proposi
tion and that I have ugreed with Messrs. Brewer
&. Co., for the shipment of a number, about 30
persons of the proposed Italian Colonists from
San Francisco and the government
will (i. e. when the Colonists are here) pay to
those gentlemen the subsidjr as agreed."
It will be noted that Mr. P. asks the govern
ment for no responsibility, no land, no advance,
nothing but that they will pay for the passage of
the ColdniEts when these are on our shores.
We quote the next letter received by Mr. P.

Now comes a letter thoroughly characteristic
of our Minister of Foreign AfEiira :
Depabtmest of Foreign Affaibj,
Honolulu, March 25ih, 187C. ) -Mklchioe
Peccexixi Esq. Sia : The Minister
of .Foreign Affairs has received your note of March
1 24th, and desires me to state, that you hve again
misunderstood what was said to you, and begs to
refer you to Mr, Glade of Messrs Hackfeld & Co..
who came with you, and with whom alone this Gov
ernment desires to correspond on this subject, unless
some other equally respectable party resident here
desires to place yrour views before His Majesty's
I remain sir, your obdt. servt
; - . - -. ffn.- Jabbett,
Secretary Foreign Office.
What a touch of the old hand! Who of us
who signed the memorial will not recognize the
same stern schoolmaster who scolded the naughty
boys that dared sign that paper ? No considera
tion here for tbe stranger, who very imperfectly
understands our language. No desire to meet In
a friendly way the man who comes forward to aid
in the noble work of repopulation. The tone of
the Minister's letter is worse than rude it is
savage and suggests the question, where can tho
man have been brought up? So much for tbe
truculeuce now for the imbecility, which equally
characterizes our Foreign Minister. We give the
last (thus far) letter of the scries :
Honolulu, March 27. 187C.
Sib : We beg leave to inform you that we have
received, on Saturday last, a letter from His Excel
lency the Minister of Foreign Affairs, from which
we copy as follows :
" With reference to tbe subject of the interview
on the 23d inst. betwixt your Mr. Glade and Mr.
Peccenini on the one part and the Minister of Finance
and myself on the other part, I have now to inform
you that II. M's. Government have taken the-last
proposition of Mr. Peccenini into consideration.
namely, of bringing ten Itsliau families from. Cal
ifornia, on condition that this Government pay $30
towards the passage of the men and women and
$20 towards the passage of tbe children ; and after
laying the matter before the Board of Immigration
they have decided not to entertain it."
We are dear sir, yours very trulv ,
II. Hackfelu & Co.
A most lame and impotent conclusion. Italians
are welcome if they come all the way from Italy,
but if they have got as far on their journey as
California, the government will have nothing to
do with them. We can but conclude that the
Minister is determined to do nothing to repopu
late the country. We refrain from further com
ment except this one that the Minister shows no
sign of returning from his downward couree, but
persists in one that is daily setting him in more
aud more direct .opposition jo the intelligence of
the country. It is an interesting experiment how
lone a Minister who acts in such a manner can
retain his place: " ' -
