It is announced that Dr. J. Holland, of Hilo, will make a test case of
the ruling of the Land Office regarding a two years' residence ns a con
dition precedent to the acquirement of title under the Right of Purchase
and Cash Freehold plans.
Dr. Holland took up 40 acres of government land at Pahoa, Puna,
about three years ago. After clearing half of it and putting up a sub
stantial two-story house and other improvements aggregating $3,000,
the Land Department refuses to issue a deed to him, unless he can make
affidavit that he has slept 011 the land 365 nights in the year for two
years. This, Holland says, he cannot do, as he doesn't know. He in
insists, however, that he has maintained his home upon the place and
demands his patent.
Under the recent ruling of the Department, which is being rigid en
forced by the local office, nearly every member of the Curtis Settlement
Association, Kaihcnui Settlement Association, Jas. D. Lewis Settlement
Association, Win. Nailima Settlement Association and J. A. M. Osorio
Settlement Association, will be affected.
The first three associations' have taken up land at 12-miles, Olaa,
while the latter organization is seelchg government lauds located in
the Kaiwiki-Wailea tract, consisting of 'about 5590 acres. The lease on
this tract to the Hakalau Plantation Co. expires June 15, 1906. There
arc about 1S00 acres cleared aud under cultivation aud is regarded as a
very valuable tract in the very heart of the plantation, for which it has
been paying an annual rental of $300. In response to the application of
the Association, Commissioner Pratt has replied stating that it is not his
intention to open up under the right of purchase plan for settlement
associations "first class agricultural land now under cultivation near a
city and a shipping point as are the Hakalau lauds." Applicants must
satisfy the Department of their ability to maintain the present high state
of cultivation of the laud in question, which will be divided into small
holdings and sold at public auction, u "reasonable market rate" being
fixed as an upset valuation. Each cast will be acted upon separately.
It is alleged that the purpose of these (Venditions is to insure proper cul
tivation, prompt building of roads, a fair return for the land, an equal
chance to all and no favoritism. The Osorio Association, which contains
thirty-six members, maintain their bona fide intention of complying with
the provisions of the Land Act, but Liy the right of the Public Lands
Office to impose conditions which make settlement associations valueless
aud their fulfillment impossible.

Says Carter Violates the Law.
It is stated that a protest has been sent to Washington Ijy Senator
McCandlcss against Governor Carter's reduction of the loan authorized
by the Legislature. The Governor says he has expected hostility from
McCandlcss since he turned the Senator down in the matter of land and
water rites, Foiled at one turn, McCandlcss always gets up a fight and
carries it into other questions. During the Legislature, the Governor
says, Senator McCandlcss was fighting to keep loan expenditures down;
now he wants it to go to an extreme because the executive doesn't
Because of these statements, Senator McCandlcss has given out the
correspondence between himself and the Governor as follows:
Executive Chamber, Honolulu, Hawaii, Sept. 14, 1905.
Senator L. L. McCandlcss, Honolulu.
My Dear Senator; Yesterday I was informed that you had made the
statement in a .semi-public place, in regard to the Loan Fund, that I.
was contemplating cutting it down, defying the instructions of the Leg
islature and ignoring the law, or rather taking it into my hands.
May I suggest that the prominent position you hold and the highest
interests of this Territory can best be conserved by your making a slight
investigation of the Acts passed before giving out any such state
ment as the above. I shall be very pleased to have you show me the
language of any statute making the carrying out of appropriations un
der the Loan Fund mandatory upon the administration.
Very sincerely yours,
G. R. CARTER,
Honolulu, T. II., Sept. 18, 1905.
His Ex. George R. Carter, Governor of the Territory of Hawaii, Ho
Dear Sir: I beg to acknowledge the receipt of your communication
ol the 14th inst., in which you refer to my having made certain remarks
in a semi-public place concerning appropriations under the Loan Fund,
and suggesting that I make slight investigation of the Acts passed by
the Legislature before giving out any such statement.
In reply thereto, I will admit that I did make a statement concerning
appropriations under the Loan Act to Mr. L. A. Thurston, stating that
I believed there was only one thing for you to do and that was for you
to carry out the Loan Act as passed by the Legislature, and I further
stated to Mr. Thurston that I considered you were ignoring the wishes
of the Legislature, who represent the people, and asked him to call up
on you and urge you to carry out the wishes of the Legislature in the
Regarding your asking me to investigate the Acts passed and being
mandatory upon you to carry out the same, I would refer you to Section
48 of the Organic Act.
Section 48 requires the signature of the Governor in order to make
valid any Act passed by the Legislature, and I believe your signature
has been attached to the Loan Act (Act 6, Extra Session, 1905).
Section 49 provides that if the Governor approves an Act, he shall
sign it, and it shall become a law. The records show that, after this
bill passed both houses of the Legislature and was presented to you, you
had the right to veto the same, or any specific item or items therein.
Your failing to exercise your right of veto, aud your signing the Act,
made it a law of the Territory of Hawaii.
Section 55 gives the Legislature the power to pass a Loan Bill, under
certain restrictions. The Legislature of 1905, having conformed with
these requirements, passed a Loan Bill amounting to One Million,
Three Hundred aud Seventy-seven Thousand Dollars, which was signed
by you, the Governor, thus making it a law of the Territory of Hawaii.
As to the duties of the Governor. Has not he taken an oath to carry
out the laws to the best of his ability? And is there any reason today
why we are not able to borrow the amount appropriated by the Legis
lature at a very low rate of interest (say 2XA 'er cent.)? These facts, in
my opinion, make it mandatory upon the Governor to carry out the
Loan Act. If not, what is the use of having a constitution, given us by
the United States, giving the right to make appropriations? And what
is the use of the Legislature making appropriations if the wishes of the
people are not to be considered?
Under the above conditions, in my judgement, there is only one
course to pursue, and that is to carry out the law as passed by the Legis
lature. There is no discretionary power left to the Governor, unless the
the Legislature should have passed a law which was impossible .for thj
Governor to carry out. Such a condition is not applicant in this pai
ticular case, because our credit is good. You will acknowledge
therefore that we would have no difficulty in getting this money. Be
sides, in the Regular Session, you recommended in one of your
messages that the Legislature pass a Loan Bill amounting to One Mil
lion One Hundred Thousand Dallars.' The Legislature made some
changes in your recommendations, but not to any great extent, and on
ly increased the Bill Two Hundred and Seventy-seven Thousand Dol
lars. In my judgment you surely should give the Legislature a little
credit tor knowing the needs of the several islands of this Territory.
This bill carries appropriations for belt roads and a great many o
branch roads lor the benefit of homesteaders on the Island of Hawaii,
the Islands of Maui, Molokai and Lanai, the Island of Kauai, and the
Island of Oahu, which are necessary and should be carried out. The
appropriations in the old bill of 1903 were , in many instances, not used,
and this new bill has re-appropriated money for those improvements
which are most urgent.
You arejnot to infer that I necessarily approve of every item in the
Act, but what you may consider most important another, equally in
terested, might deem of small importance, in coinparieon. But that is
not the question; the Act stands as law.
In conclusion, I trust that my ideas in the matter will be thoroughly
looked into by you, and that you will carry out the Loan Act as passed
by the Legislature, which will probably not exceed One Million One,
Hundred Thousand Dollars because some of the improvements will pro
bably not require the full amount appropriated, and if this should be
uie case, men tue appropriation would be within your recommendation.
Yours very truly,
I. 1. M.CCANDI.ESS.
