SETTLING THE LAND.
This question cannot lie discussed
too much. It claims the best thought
of the nation. The life of the King
dom depends upon its solution. Un
less this is to he a country of lords
and serfs, it must have freeholders
for the bulk of its citizens. Before
adverting to a point suggested by
our correspondent. "Fanner," we
wish to emphatically repent the
opinion expressed by us in discuss
ing the Homestead Act some time
That is. that the native race
should have the first consideration
in the apportionment of public lands
for settlement. ThN is the land of
the Hawaiian race. The interests
of that race should lik made para
mpunt to those of all ulasscs and
conditions of foreigners in the set
tlement of the country. Not only
give the Ilawaiians the first chance
and the first choice in taking up the
lands at disposal, but let everything
possible be done by both the Gov
ernment and the professedly benevo
lent foreigner to induce the natives
to engage in independent farming.
As to the statements made by our,
correspondent, regarding the con
duct of large landholders, we need
only say that he is well-informed in
the matter, and nothing need at
present be added to his reflections.
A great deal might, however, be
said upon the sentiment of the clos
ing words of his letter: "It should
not be a question of how much can
be got from the salestir leases, but
how to settle a permanent population.
Never mind the revenue. Get the
population, and then the revenue
will come." A large population of
independent farmers would be the
best security against such a deplet
ed state of the treasury as is now
producing great embarrassment to
the Government that is, provided
affair were administered at the
Mime time with prudence and f-oiind
economy. With n very moderate
customs taxation, the duties upon
agricultural implements alone would
lie u prolific source of revenue. The
consumption of foreign dutiablo
goods would lie vastly developed by
the addition of few hundred inde
pendent producers lo the population.
Also the burden of internal taxa
tion would bo .subdivided so as to
make it lighter upon individual tax
payer.s, without a necessarily corres
ponding increase in public expenditures.
THE CANADIAN FISHERIES,
Noxt July, nuclei notice frnin tlir
AmcricHU Government, the Fishery
Clauses of the Treaty of Washing- ,
ton. concluded in 1871 between
Great Brilain and the United State,
will bo abrogated. That will leave ,
tlio mattor of the fisheries of Canada '
subject to the provisions of the Lon
don convention of 1818. Those for
bid American iishcrmcu from prose
cuting llieir occupation within three
miles from the shores of Canada and
Newfoundland, with certain limited '
exceptions. They permit. American '
fishermen lo enter bays or harbors
for the purpose of lepniring damages
or laying, in stores. Sir. Joseph
Dontre, Queen's Counsel, of Mon
treal, who was the senior counsel for
Canada in the Halifax Fishery Com
mission of 1875 an international
board of arbitration which decreed
that tho United Stales should pay
Canada $5,500,000 as indemnity for
the unauthorized use of her fisheries
while the Fishery Clauses of the
above Treaty were pending is re
ported as saying that " if the condi
tions of tlic convention of 1818 arc
insisted on without any modification,
there is sure to be trouble, because
the conditions imposed arc .so very
strict, and the temptation to infringe
unon them offered to American
fishermen so great, that it will be
next to impossible to avoid the fre
quent occurrence of the most dan
gerous collisions." Under tho differ
ent international treaties the Ameri
cans were granted equal rights with
the Canadians in tho fisheries of the
latter, and, although the Canadians
had corresponding privileges on the
American fishing grounds, the ad
vantages were mainly on the side of
tho Americans, for their fisheries
were not worth seeking by the Cana
dians. The latter, however, had
free access to the American markets
for their fish and fish oil, which per
haps made the advantages even. Mr.
Doutrc," above mentioned, described
the Canadian fisheries as being inex
haustible, and more valuable to
Canada than gold was lo California.
When the Halifax fishery award,
abpvc referred to, was made, there
was a great outcry, led by the Now
England fishermen who were engaged
in Canadian waters, that the amount
was most exorbitant and (limply a
present lo Canada. The same influ
ence kept up a persistent agitation
against the Fishery Clauses of the
Tieaty until the American Govern
ment was induced lo give notice of
the abrogation of the Fishery Clauses
as above slated. Perhaps the Glou
cester fishermen will have lcason lo
regret their course, which looks Tery
much like biting off their noses to
bpitc their faces.
So it appears the JWcxican-IIawa-iian
steamship line, so confidently
promised a while ago, was only a
speculative hchemc, and has "gone
up the Hume." What aiiout the
treaty with iMcxico that our es
teemed Attorney-General got the
" promise of, from the party of the
other part?" There could have Lccn
nothing speculative in it.
The Advertiser say.s, respecting
samples of ramie fibre produced by
n French invention, that, "The dif
ference between the most highly
finished French samples and the
Coleman is about that to bo observed
between No. I brown sugars Hint wo
send to San Francisco and Hie white
granulated which we receive back
from there." This ! a gratifying
tribute to local genius, and ought
to go far toward inspiring confidence
in the block of the Hawaiian Ramie
PEOPLE THE COUNTRY.
Emrou Hti.i.uTix; I am I'lad
you do not weary of advocating the
throwing open of the public lauds
for .settlement of small farmers. You
arc doing a service which some, at
least, approciate. I am also glad to
hcc that other papers are .beginning
to follow your lead. In my hum
ble opinion, as well as in tho opinion
of n few others whom I know, it
would bu wisdom on lhe part of the
papers to givo a little more, promi
nence to this and nimilnr questions
instead of occupying their columns
with an endless repetition of matters
of which the public have long been
sick. To say that tho settlement of
theso islands by an industrious nea-
J santry is indispensable to their p,er-

mnnant prosperity, Is only a 1-oUorn
Hon of what hrn been Mild a thou
sand lime, mftl what every intelli
gent mid reflective man admits to bo
true. It is gratifying to learn that
one "large landholder" is ready and
willing to "throw open somo large
and valuable Iracls to settlement
upon the most fiivornulo terms," and
it is to be hoped that others will be
induced to do the same. Hitherto
the large landholders have mostly
locked up their lands from settle
ment 'or offered them at a price that
none but a Chinainiin could pay and
live. If they would have Ihnir lauds
occupied by people who would
ghully.sclllc on thonitpcrinancntly,
they must put them in the market at
considerably less than thirty or forty
dollars an aero rent per year. No
land is worth so much for agricultu
ral purposes, and no man with a con
science would ever ask so much.
But large land owners, the world
over, arc mostly u lot of selfish,
avaricious, grinding despots, and to
expect much from them is to boulis-
appoinlcd. Wc arc justified, how
ever, in looking for more considera
tion from enlightened and liberal
government. While private persons
may be allowed to seek first, last,
and always their own gain, such a
thing is not to lie tolerated in the
policy of representative government.
Its first concern is, or should be,
the good of tho stale of which it is
constituted, and 1 hold the belief
that Hie Hawaiian Government would
best serve the good of this little
state by throwing open the lands
under its; control for settlement by
people who will occupy and culti
vate them. It shoqld not be a ques
tion of how much can bevgot from
the sales, or leases, but how to settle
a permanent population. Never
mind the revenue. Get the popula
tion, and then the revenue will
