THURSDAY, JUNE 29, 1882.
High rents do not help a country's
advancement, especially when put
on Hb cnltivatahlo soil. To the
contrary, they arc a clog to progress.
This is one of the existing obstacles
to J I awnii's prosperity. Wo speak
move particularly for the districts
surrounding Honolulu. Consider
able of the auible laud here is under
the control of men who aro willing
to lease, but at such a high figure as
to make it unprofitable to tho lessee"
In some instances an annual rent of
sixty and seventy dollars per aero is
asked for a short lease of unfenccd
and uncleared land. The cost of
clearing, fencing, and preparing for
cultivation would probably exceed
the gross proceeds of the first two
crops. To a native Hawaiian or a
white man such routs aro simply pro
hibitive. The consequence is that
the bulk of tho tillable land in and
around Honolulu is cithor being cul
tivated by Chinamen or remains
wasto and unproductive. Of the
latter 'unoccupied and uncultivated
land there is a large aggregate area,
much larger than may be generally
supposed. We aro awwo that in
places want of water for irrigation
prevents cultivation; but we also
know that the high rent demanded is
tho sole cause of non-occupancy and
non-productiveness in many other
places. 'Acre nrc hundreds of
acres of excellent taro laud, with an
abundant supply of water, now lying
idle, within a radius of three or four
miles of Honolulu. Wc have been
repeatedly told by natives that they
woidd gladly till much of this land
if it could bo secured at a reasonable
rental, but that the present rate is so
high that after paying rent and other
expenses nothing would remain of
tho proceeds of their crops. The
owners of land and administrators of
estates do not benefit thomselvcs,
tho estates they administer, nor the
people, by thus placing rents unap
proachably high-. On tho other hand,
a fair rental would probably bring a
steady profit to tho lessor, improve
tho condition of tho lessee, nnd con
tribute to the general prosperity of
tho nation. Let thoso who aro con'
ccrned thoughtfully weigh these con

Yesterday, while discussing lho
items of pay of tho Sheriffs of Ha
wail and Maul, a warm debate en'
sued among tho Hon. members of
the Houso, during which some very
sharp remarks wcro made, criticising
the way things have been carried on
under tho supervision of said Gov
ernment oHleials, as also their own
personal actions regarding their
duties. His Ex. tho Attorney-Gen
oral however nut a stop to this
feeling, by Btating in substance that
tho probabilities were, a thorough
cleansing and reconstruction would
bo mado in the Police system of tho
Kingdom, and that as far as ho was
concerned, ho was prepared to say
that things will be conducted in a
more satisfactory manner heretofore.
Mr. Brown from spocial com
mittee to whom was referred the
subject of Artesian Wells, reported
recommending 1st, That tho sums
of $5,000 caoh bo inserted in the
Appropriation Bill for artesian wells
at North Kona, Hawaii, on tho Isl
and of Molokai, nnd at Mnkua,
Oahu; and secondly, the sum of
$20,000 bo also appropriated for
boring artesian wells throughout the
Kingdom, to bo under tho control of
tho Minister of the Interior. "Which
report was adopted.
Mr. Kauiukou, from Koolaupoko,
presented a resolution that the sum
of $1,000 be inserted in the Appro
priation Bill for improving tho har
bor of Waimanalo, Koolau, which
was laid on the table to be consider
ed with tho Appropriation Bill.
Mr. Rice gave notice of intention
to introduco ' tho following bills :
let To amend law relating to the
service of summons and process in
Police nnd District Courts ; 2d To
provide for a more efficient registra
tion of marriages ; 3rd To provide
a penalty for false acknowledgment
to instruments ; '4th To provide a
punishment for trespass on the pre
misses of Female Boarding Schools.
Rules being suspended, Mr. Na
wahi presented n petition from llilo,
with over 500 signatures, praying
that $500,000 be appropriated for
laying a railroad from Hilo to "VVai
pio; which was laid on tabic for
consideration with tho Appropriation
The House then resolved itself into
committee of tho whole, Mr. Kapena
in the chair.
Tho eonsideration of the Appro
priation Bill was then taken up, and
the following items under the head of
Department of Attorney-General
were rcspoctivoly considered and

and Kauai, were on motion of His

The House adjourned to 1 p.m.
At 1J r.M. tho committee again
resumed the consideration of the
Tlic item 'of $20,000 for Criminal
Exponscs was on motion referred to
a special committee.
Tho item of $C0,000 for an
"Armed force, contingent fund to
be expended by advice of the King
m Cnbinot Council," was the last
item in this Department brought forth
considcrablo discussion, wldch lasted
until 3 ;30 r.M., when tho motion to
indefinitely postpone was lost by a
vory large majority. Tho item then
piissed'with an amendment providing
that said sum Bhall bo used only 'for
armed forces for the Islands of Ha
waii, Maui nnd Kauai.
, Tho Committee then rose and re
ported progress, which was adopted ;
and the Houso adjourned to meet
again this day, -at 10 a.m.
Mn. EniTon : Now that the, town
is divided into -thirteen fircwards,
thcro Is considerable confusion and
uncertainty when an alarm of fire is
given, nmong tho members of the
various Fire Companies as" well as
tho public' generally, to know tho
exact location of tho conflagration.
This confusion was noticeable on
Monday night lost during the alarm
of firo at tho houso of ,Mr. "Wood,
when tho cnirines were taken in
different directions. This is not an
exceptional case, but an-occurrenco
every time an alarm of fire is given.
Now, Mr. Editor, to remedy this
confusion in future, I would sug
gest, that in every fireward a bell be
ercoted. i A firo occurs we will say
in No. 12 ward, when tho nell be
longing to that ward and the Alarm
Bejl at the Bell Tower is Tang only.
Invthis case only these two bells
would bo heard, and the location of
the firo would be a certainty. This
method would do away with the
bells attached to the. various engine
houses, for if used they would only
cause confusion. The largest ex
penditure, would bo tho purchaso of
bells, as poles with a smallcross-bar
would bo sufficient to hang tho bells,
with a rope attached, reaching with
in six or eight feet from tho ground,
or high enough to bo out of reach of
boys. ' Yours, 2
