PROPOSED RUSSIAN SETTLEMENT MAY FAIL
OF DELINQUENT SHARES OF THE
WAIPIO LIMALAU, LTD.
By order of the Board of Control of the
WAIPIO LIMALAU, LTD., for non
payment of assessments due, I will sell at
public auction at Honokaa, Hamakua,
County of Hawaii, on Saturday, Decem
ber 30th, 1905, at is o'clock noon, all of
the following numbered Certificates of
Shares issued by the above Company,
unless the amounts due are paid to the
undersigned on or before the above day:
The prospects of a speedy settlement of the Kapaa land question, ns
propliecied by the Honolulu papers, seems to have received a set back!
'owing to the disagreement between th; Makec Sugar Co. on Kauai1
mid the renresentntives of the Russian seiners. 1
Col Z. S. Spauldiug, tcpresentiug the plantation has not entered into
any contract with the prospective settlers for grinding of their cane and
until a satisfactory and unequivocal urjieemcut to that effect can he nr-
ranged, it seems likely that the proposition may fall through. A board
of appraisers appointed by the Commissioner of Publjc Lnnds has placed
a very low valuation upon the land, with a view of inducing the Russian
'settlers to locate permanently upon it. Their report has been given to
Commissioner Piatt, but ils contents will not be disclosed.
Governor Carter is heartily in sympathy with the movement and it is
1 claimed is doing all he can to further negotiations to an amicable settle
(incut. On the other hand it is conteulcd by Jas. B. Castle, who repre
isents the Russian settlers, that unless a contract can be drawn up secur
ing to the planters a market for their cane at a reasonable figure and at
I the time for harvesting, it is better that the land remain idle or in the
hands ot the present lessee, which ts the Makee Sugar Co.
Unless such a grinding contract be assured to the Molokaus, the
government cannot offer them an acceptable proposition for settling upon
the lands. Governor Carter disclaims iiiy power in the premises to
compel the plantation to enter into such a contract.
The Makee Sugar Company holds from the goveimcnt from 3,000 to
4,000 acres, under lease which expires in about eighteen mouths. In the
latter part of November, Captain Demons representing the Molokaus, a
Russian sect not unlika the Quakers, investigated the possibilities of
settlement of cane land by his countrymen. Providing the Makee Sugar
Co. would cancel a certain tract of govei.nent laud and to take the cane
grown by the settlers, Captain Demons proposed to bring to Kauai a
colony of about 130 families, or between Soo and 1000 people, who
would become permanent settlers.
It is stated that these people are the v cry best kind of settlers. They
will make their homes here and will spunl their money here. It will not
be sent back to Russia, as the Japanese send theirs to Japan. The idea
is to have them take up the laud ns a settlement association in tracts of
about 40 acres to each family. About half of it is suitable for cane cul
tivation and the rest can be used for ether agricultural purposes. It
will, if the plan is carried through, be opened on the purchase lease
system, so they will be able to spend the first money they make on im
provements and pay for the land later on. These men arc not paupers,
but have money with which they can make a good start.
Owing to the disagreement between the plantation and the Russians'
representatives the plan seems likely to fall through.

"This bill represents the sentiment of a large part of the population
on the Pacific Coast," replied a California!!. "It is introduced by the
Calirornia delegation, composed of Republicans. We understand that a
committee is coming here with the intention of having a similar bill
introduced by a Democrat, who will try to make it appear that the
regular delegation is opposed to the anti-Japanese sentiment in Cali

"Well, the committee is headed by Mr. Livemash, and other mem
"Send them to me! Send them to me!" exploded the President,
gritting his teeth and pounding the desk with his fist. "I'll veto the

The Califomians promised to suggest to I.ivemash and his associates
that they call at the White House.
"Send them to me!" shouted the President, as the Califomians de
parted, "I'll tell them what I think of Japanese exclusion."
It is said Senator Perkins intended to introduce a bill identical with
McKinlay's bill, excluding the Japanese and Koreans, but when he
heard of the President's threat to deport Liveruash he concluded to let
the House wrestle with the subject.

These incidents, taken with the comments of Eastern Senators and

and hard the fight will be before the exclusion of Japanese laborers is
accomplished. Several Southern Represeutrtives who formerly favored
Chinese exclusion are now nnxious to have the Chinese admitted in
order to meet the labor scarcity in the South.
