Yesterday, i" a .short note, t
mentioned that a large landholder
had expressed his willingness to
open some pretty extensive tracts to
settlement upon the most favorable
terms. The current Planters'
Monthly has :i letter from Mr. I.
'Rycroft, of Puna, Hawaii, telling of
lands upon that Island that could be
thrown open for settlement in small
holdings, with great advantage to all
concerned. Commenting upon the.
letter, the editor of that valuable
periodical give the following timely
"So far so good. What is wanted
is definite information as to where
land can be obtained ; but to be of
practical benefit, further information
is necessary as to terms of sale, the
price, amount of casli down required,
or length of time for which a mort
gage will be taken, and rate of in
terest. If Mr. Rycioft will make a
definite statement of what he is pre
pared to do, and Ills proposition is
any ways reasonable, there is no
doubt that lie will be able to make
speedy arrangements advantageous
both to himself and to settlers.
"In this connection we would
urge upon the attention of large
landholders the advantage to be de
rived from cutting upland into small
parcels. An example in point is the
land of Kapahulu, situated at Wai
kiki and back of Diamond Head,
which was lately sold by the Luna
lilo estate. The trustees would have
been glad to get ? 10,000 as a whole,
but finally divided it into lots and
sold them at auction, the sale realiz
ing some 22,000. Another instance
of a like nature is the recent division
of a large lot on the slope of Punch
bowl iu Honolulu. It found no
purchasers at $7,500, but divided
up and soul in lots, terms Doing
one-fourth cash and the balance in
one, two and three years, it brought
over 810,000 without any diillculty.
"If, then, some of our landholders
will but view this matter from a
financial point of view, they will find
that it will pay to divide up and
lease or sell iuany of their now
waste lands, which arc bringing in
but a meagre income. There arc
immense tracts of land lying in the
district of Kwa and Waianac on this
Island, now used as cattle ranches
or for nothing at all, which could
support a dense population; and
philanthropy and public spirit aside,
it would bo money in pocket for
those who own. or control them and
similar lands, lo open them for set
tlement." An argument such as that con
tained in the foregoing statements
ought not to be lost upon land
owners. Those who do not wish to
unload themselves of their entire
estates would, undoubtedly, by dis
posing of a portion in small hold
ings to settlers, increase the market
value of the remaindor. The suc
cess attending the examples above
given will probably lead other land
owners to go and do likewise. As
the Planters' Monthly advises,
those who have lands to dispose of
should take means to make the fact,
with'full particulars, known. It is
gratifying to find that the Minister
of the Interior is having the Govern
ment lands sot In ordei, in the Sur
vey Department, foi. apportionment
to Bctllers under the Homestead
Act of last session. A consideration
that must not be omitted, in deal
ing with this matter, is tin question
of obtaining good classes of settlers
for the land to be thrown open. It
is not to be presumed that thurc are
now in the country people enough,
of the kind desired, to take up all
the lands available for settlement.
It would be well if a register could
bo opened in the Interior Depart
ment, for recording all lands Hint
private holders are willing to dispose
of. Then, after nn estimate had
been made of the amount of land
required for present inhabitants
willing lo settle, an idea could bo
formed of the extent to which it
would be advisable lo invite agri
cultural immigrants from abroad.
Without any race prejudice, we
believe that it would be undesh-able
to -have all now settlers from the
ranks of contract laborers the
Oriental and the Latin races. The
genius of this country's progress is
Anglo-Saxon, and it is not too much
to say that to preserve the nation
from becoming a Balicl, and possi
bly a Bedlam, Anglo-Saxon speech
and ideas must predominate in its
future life. Therefore, if wc have
land for outsiders, this point should
be kept in .view. There are thou
sands of people in the British Is
lands face lo face with starvation,
from the unequal struggle for sub
sistence with a rigorous climate and
poor and scanty soil. An offer of
homesteads in this country and cli
mate, upon the easy conditions that
could be afforded, if properly made
to those people through the Ha
waiian consuls in .the United King
dom, might very soon bring a ship
load of then: lo our shores. They
would not be long in adapting them
selves to the different conditions of
agriculture to what they were ac
customed to. and His Majesty could
not desire a belter class of subjects,
or a more loyal when they had
changed their allegiance.
This issue of the Daily 15ui.lt.iix
is valuable for reference, and should
be preserved. Besides the census
tables, Mr. Whitney's instructive ar
ticle. " Population and Labor," is
well worth keeping.
It is reported that the Chinese
companies are going to send about
two thousand of their people away
to Mexico. The primary object is
to keep up the price of labor, and
the motive is partially one of jeal
ousy toward the Japanese. This
movement will make it more than
ever incumbent upon planters to
leave nothing reasonable undone to
make the Japanese satisfied with
their lot in this country. If Japan
can supply the labor, market, there
will probably be few to regret the
departure of the Chinese in much
greater number than that now an
nounced. It must be regarded as
fortunate that the Planters' Conven
tion was not gratified in its desire
for more Chinese.
(1'iom tho PlunteiV Monthly.)
POPULATION AND LABOR.
The enumeration of the nopula-
lion of this Kingdom, which has re
cently been taken, furnishes food
for thought to all who-arc interested
in the prosperity of our country,
but especially to those engaged in
cane and rice culture, in which in
dustries alone not less than 20,000
persons are constantly employed.
Although some of the statistics
given in the census tables are evi
dently defective especially those
which state the number who can read
and write as only il!),01G of tho total
80,578 I consider tho tables on tho
whole quite as reliable ns those of
any previous census. The totals
correspond very closely to the esti
mates made by myself and others ;
and those who have had charge of
the work deserve credit for the man
ner in which it has been done.
The male population is put down
at 51,53!), of which 11,700 arc under
fifteen years of age, leaving DO, 83!)
as available, iu one way or another,
for industiial pursuits. The columns
under the head of "occupations," in
the census returns, show a total of
U'J,fi-ll employed as mechanics, agri
culturists, contract laborers, and in
other occupations. This includes
eomo females, but how many we
linvc no menus of ascertaining. Tliu
fact, however, remains demonstrated
that about one-half of our popula
tion is permanently employed in
various kinds of maiiunl labor, and
consequently industriously occupied,
which is more than can be said of
tho male population of some other
countries. This is ntlribulnule in n
groat measure to the leeiprocity
treaty with America, which has given
an impetus, not only to sugar and
rice, but lo every other industry.
Another encouraging feature
brought out by the census is the
iiicicaso in the number of fcmnlcs,
ns compared with the returns for
1878. Those gave a total of 23,882
females, with 1G,2GG children under
15 years. The new census reports
29,00!) females, with 22,51!) children.
It also shows that there arc 10,240
females of wholly or part foreign
extract, among whom arc -1 , 1!J8
Portuguese and 2,0!)!) half-caste
females, who as a rulo arc more
prolific, and bear more and healthier
children than Hawaiian women.
Taking these facts into considera
tion, it is not improbable that the
next census (1890) will show a very
large increase in life number of
children under 15 years. The half
caste population lias already become
an impoitant and valuable element
in our'laboi calculations, as it sup
plies some of our most reliable me
chanics, teamsters, overseers and
The labor question is therefore
rapidly assuming a changed aspect
for the better, and if the Japanese
immigration, now happily inaugu
rated after ten years' efforts to se
cure it, can be continued for a year
or two, to counteract and cheek the
excessive influx' of male Chinese,
the prospect bids fair that the de
mand for imported labor will soon
decrease from year to year, till
eventually wc shall be fully supplied
from our own population with labor
ers of a more desirable class, because
of domestic growth and habits,
speaking the same language, and
"to the manor born."
The following table, which has
been carefully compiled, shows the
changes which have taken place in
the population of this Kingdom
during the past 155 years, and will
prove valuable for preservation and
reference. Prior to 1S72 no statis
tics were taken to show the national
ities of the foreign residents, and in
the enumerations of 1850 and 18G0
none were taken showing the half
caste and Chinese separately. The
data given for those years, showing
the number of half-caste and
Chinese, arc estimates, but are be
lieved to be as correct as it is possi
ble now to give tliem. They have
been inserted to make the summary
