disintegration ntul subdivision of
the huge sugar plniitntions into
small holding!!. Jared Smith sees
the downfall of the plantation inter
ests and the substitution of the
small farmer, as occurred in the
South immediately after the Civil
War. The conditions of the South
were far different than prevails to
day in the Hawaiian Islands. Cot
ton growing before the war was not
carried on in as scientific and inten
sive 11 manner as the methods pur
sued by the large sugar planters.
The specialized small farmer may
be reasonably successful, but with
out a radical amendment to the
land laws and special inducements
offered to settlers, Hawaii cannot
expect to become an agricultural

Ip as suggested by United States
Commissioner of Immigration
Sargent, Italian immigrants are
available for plantation laborers in
large numbers, this may solve the
labor problem in Hawaii. The
question arises whether the dagoes
are any more desirable than the
recent importation of Porto Ricans.
In Southern California, the Italians
are of a domestic and agricultural
turn of mind, and have built up an
Italian-Swiss colony whose reputa
tion for fine wines and grapes is
becoming world renowned.
Tin? Board of Trade are adopting
the proper course in the matter of
federal legislation, and instead of
seeking too much- without success,
are bending every effort to secure
the passage of the ten thousand
dollar appropriation for a survey
and estimate of cost of the Hilo
.breakwater. This is a, step in the
right direction and with a favor
able report of the project, means a
far stride toward securing the
million dollar appropriation for the
much needed public improvement.
Instrad of attempting to dis
credit the Territory's representative
in Congress, the citizens of Hawaii
who have the best interests of the
country at hesrt, would appear in a
better light at home giving such co
operation as lies within their own
sphere of influence, through the
proper channels. The Delegate's
protest is timely and to the point,
and should appeal to every business
man interested ifi the success of the
Thu Tribune throws" up the
sponge oi) the proposition of small
farming on Hawaii, but the News
certainly has no intention at pres
ent of abandoning the fight on
Maui. True, ideal New England,
down-south or western farm homes
may not be established on Maui,
but for all that, there arc many
minor industries yet to be estab
lished including pineapples, sisal,
rubber and other semi-tropic pro
ductions, and there is laud on Maui
for that purpose. Maui News.
January 33, 1905,
P. ItrilKliclll, IJsri.,
Sir: Your letter of January 19th is nt
1 do not know what nationality you are,
mid I cannot understand your letter.
You must cither be a fool or a knave
the former if you think I am going to
recommend payment of $175,00 for any
animal in the condition in which your
driver left that mule when Secretary
Atkinson and I found it.
The only other possible excuse for your
request is that you must be a knave to
expect the Government, or anyone else,
to pay you.
If you knew of thnt accident by tele
phone ns soon ns your driver urrived in
Knu, and failed to notify hint to at once
disp itch n until to examine the nninml
and see if it was necessary to kill it, you
deserve to be prosecuted for cruelty to
Your driver claimed he did not know
your name, and 1 could not find out to
whom that mule belonged. He gave us
to understand that he would be held per
sonally responsible by "his boss" if he
killed the mule, and claimed that he was
waiting for instructions as to what to do.
On his return to Hilo he expected to lead
the animal back, in order to prove to his
heartless, cruel employer the condition
of the animal, and I presume you will
deny any such instructions and claim
thnt the Ignorant Japanese driver had
told you that the accident was only
slight, and between the two of you escape
the consequences of the law.
In all my experience in these Islands,
I have never seen a case of greater cruelty
to animals, the moral responsibility for
which you cannot escape, in that you
employ a driver whom you evidently
could not trust and who would commit
such an outrage. How lout; the poor
brute had been there, exposed by day to
the hot tropical sun and by night to the
cold fogs from off the mountains, which
are sure to creep down in that locality,
with its hind leg broken and the bone
protruding, I do not know. But when
we found it, the broken leg was swollen
to three or four times the natural size,
the wound taken possession of by the
flics, the leg twisted clear under its body,
and in its agony the animal had unfortu
nately put its fore leg over the halter
rope, so that in order to stand on three
legs its head had to be down near the
ground, or if it raised its head it had to
stand on two legs. Its death was only n
question of hours, and to remove it would
have been impossible.
To my mind, it is most unfortunate the
law provides no way, under the circum
stances, to penalize both you and your
driver. If such an incident had occurred
in the town of Hilo, I am sure the hu
manity and public spirit of your fcllow-
towusuieii would have raised a storm of
indignation, and public opinion would
have held you responsible.
(Signed) G. It. CARTER, '
Hilo, Hawaii, Jan. 26, 1905.
Mr. G. R. Carter,
My dear Governor: Yours of Jan. 33rd
at hand, contents noted. You do nut
know my Rationality. I suppose you
wish to know it. I am American by joice
not by compulsion, uatif of 'Switzerland
Sory you cannot understand my letter
If so, wy do you answer? As to being a
fool or knave, I say not guilty-
I expect every one to pay their bills
even if the bill is iucured for simpaty of
mules. The first iuforuiclion I ad of any
pillkin was from Arioli at night saing
thnt tlie Governor killed one of my
mules. So I again say not guilty to be
prosecuted for cruelty to animals,
My driver is stil in my employ and he
law to punish me and my driver, wicli
Indicates to tuc more humanity for the
mule than the men in the tropical sun
nud fogs from the mountains.
Now, my Dear Governor, I do not be
lieve this little note wil please 5 on any
mute than my Inst, but I remember sonny
time during the ycr to hnvc rend in the
newspaper that the Governor would dis
charge the Government cuplolcs that did
not pay thnir bills. I can suply 11 lot in
Hilo nud Honolulu that disobeys your
order nud I would be very sory to include
your own. The Advertiser the 22 con
tains 11 sad tale ol it mule. I did not
swing thnt talc in the press, but I have
no objection if it is agreeable to yon thnt
my first note, this one and your mis. tuny
go in it, errors and nil.
In conclusion I say that mule was tied
and not abandoned all the locality ncom
ndatlon can suply. If the accident ml
been in Hilo or Honolulu, ns you say,
my Fellow Townsmen would not found
me dilatory in attending to my duty and
Public opinion would have noting to
complain. Wy to-day one of my beasc
in going to pasture got itr the government
swamp, it required n dozen men and a
lentil to get him out and no one made
any complaint. We are having accidents
at all times, not myielf alone but others
also, and I certainly believe thnt it is out
of wince for the Governor to tnke part in
our misfortune unless he is willing to pay
for is mistakes. The Hill is still $175.
