Coancil, tho request being considered with favor
The view was taken that while at some time the gov
ernment might undertake the business of carrying
water for public purposes and for the benefit ef our
agricultural interests, yet at present it is not pre
pared so to do; and that till such time, a wise and
liberal policy ought to be pursued and private enter
prise promoted in every manner consistent with the
public good. The government look upon the propo
sal of the above named persons as experimental.
The result of that experiment will benefit the whole
country, iy showing what can be done in that behalf
and what the cost of such a work will be. While the
enterprise is not new, as many plantations are now
supplied by ditches, yet none so extensive and com
prehensive has been attempted. Upon this view the
request was granted, and I as law officer of the gov
ernment, was directed to attend to the preparation
of the deed and to see that the rights of the govern
ment were protected. The Minister of the Interior
at once Bent the application to my office for examina
tion, and for the imposition of terms to be proposed
to the applicants. On the 7th of September an
opibion was sent to the Minister of the Interior,
(which be will probably be happy to show to any
one) in which the law upon th? matter was reviewed
and explained, and terms proposed which it is be
lieved, fully protect the government rights in the
premises. A letter was sent to the applicants grant
ing to them the privilege requested, upon the terms
proposed in the eaid opinion to the Minister. These
terms were substantially as follows :
"The government will grant to" (the parties
U named in the application) " the license to take wa
ter from the streams named In the application, and
to carry the same over all government lands inter
vening between the said streams and the remotest
, , , : , .7. ,
,Jnd to Which It IS DOW d
for the period of twenty
ance of be9e terms, at
desired to carry said water,
years irom date 01 aoccpt
an annual rent of one hun
dred dollars. Upon condition, 1st, that a sufficient
aitcn, canal or other water-course shall be at once
commenced and finished in a reasonable time; 2d,
that this grant shall not interfere with the rights of
tenants upon said lands or streams; 3d, that it shall
not, in any way, affect the right of the government
4o grant to any person or persons, the right to take
water (not to interfere with the water hereby grant
ed) from the same or other streams, to be carried
over the same land or lands for any purpose whatso
ever, and if need be, to be carried through the ditch,
canal or other water-way to be constructed by these
grantees; provided however, that daring the said
period of twenty years the supply of water, a right
to take which is hereby granted, shall not be dimin
ished by act of the government) and 4tb, that at any
time during said period, the government may pur
chase the said canal, ditch or other water-way upon
payment of the actual cost thereof only, and in case
of eo.cE purchase will continue to furnish water to
these grantees at a just and reasonable rate, not to
exceed that paid by other parties tsking water from
such ditch or water-way."
These terms were dnly accepted by the applicants,
although they were desirons of additional assurances
on the part of the government that tbey might be as
sured of water for five or six years at least, in view
of tbeir expected large expense for an experiment to
benefit sot only their own hods, lut indirectly the
Of course the consideration named is a nominal
one, jet when we consider that for twenty years it
will be two thousand dollars, besides interest more
than the government would otherwise receive it is
something. It has been argued that the water ia
worth twenty thousand dollars and has been let out
for one hundred dollars, to small a turn as to be
practically thrown away, and as inch, a fraud on
the government True, Mr. Editor. I go even far
ther on part of that proposition. Taken where the
water can be used, its value will Le far greater than
twenty thousand dollars; but where it is to-day, it is
of no use indeed is absolutely oo Talae for it flows
unused into the sea. Those who outcry so loudly
about the matter might well consider whether the
fact that before this water can become of any use
many thousands of dollars must be expended, either
by the government or by private parties; and if pri
vate parties will do it, it is no wrong or hardship
thajt the government allows the water to be taken cn
the above terms.
But I have already taken too much of your valu
able space and time.
Yours, very truly, W.m. R. Catle.

But enough of the slams. Wt Introduced tbt tnljtct
to give an earnest and well meant warning, well
worth notice, not so much ia reference to tht dis
grace of Honolulu to Inolose sack slams, tut espe
cially to point ont a volcano more dangerous to Ho

house built oa the hardened crust cf the south or

steps be taken by tho Legislature bow In session by
appointing a committee of men of property cut of tbt
preaent Assembly, such ss Messrs. Clegborn, Water -hoove,
Wilder or Green, to pay a visit to these ilums
ander the guidance of Mr. Daytcn.and then let them
judge for themselves and their fellow citizens.
Now cirues foremost, " What are the causes that
have created this home of the fire-fiend, this powder
magazine within a' cast of matchtt, this sword rj
Damocles hanging on a tiny hair shots the property,
the all of Honolala?" And the answer must be,
the negligence of the government to offer sad tbt
negligence cf the "citizens cf Ilooolala to demand a
munloipal government, and the Insufficient and crip
pled state cf the police force of Honolulu, by an ap.
proprlation thst Is InsaSolent to enlist a number cf
police to guard such dangerous places. Had Hono
lulu been governed by a municipal government each
slams would have long ago disappeared from tho ia
terior cf the city.
Let tho reader just wonder that one of these
places joining Maunakea street Is 280 yards long
by 190 yarda wide, without any entrance by which
a Orc-eglne could reach any one cf the hundreds $4
bouses. Any city goTernment would long ago
have continued Hotel atreet towards the river and
opened another street from tie isjddle of Nunanu

anatttV ttraet dividing 'the slums 1ft their whole

guatd against 'conflagration, and by thus letting
the open snaUght In upon the homos of. bats and
nlghthawks, tbeo cvfl blfda would soon eracnate
tbeir roosting places. ". 'V
Theu ugaln, what makes ibca alums ao danger
ous to the city is the crippled Mate of the police.
W can talk about f 70,000 for a Standing, or sleep
lug, or tiscles army, or squad, but not appropri
ate money sufficient to guard the city of Honolulu
against Are, and would aooner lose a million and
more of property than furnish mesas sufficient lo
guard sgairvat the greatest mlsfortHne that can
befall the country. The whole force cn police
duty, by night or day, I only ten men, and goner
ally but tight, or nine, aa frequently one or two
men are aent away with warrants, summon-, etc.,
lo far off villages. People will wonder at the
smallnes- of the police force on duty, but wore
than half cf the force that hhoul 1 lie on duty in
he ci'y is employed otherwise, although paid out
of the appropiialion for police f Honolulu. At
the prison there is a standing force of twelve men.
and others .are tamp-lighter, watching lepers,
powder magazine, battery, etc., etc. No policemen
sire, stationed ia the alums, where bad gin create
nightly brawls" and fights, and the shrill cry of
'J haul ia " often disturbs the quiet of the Light.
A solitary policeman la such a place would be aa
mnch at his life is worth, without hi.dp near at
hand, ond these are the very places that ahould be
guarded, but for want of sufficient force are left tn
take car ot themselves. An addition of 11,000 '
to f 1.600 to tht present appropriation would add
twenty men to the present force of the police, and
citizens might go ta their homes after their Uj'
Ityhr with their rotnd. more at ese.
