THE PUBLIC LANDS.
A correspondent, whose letter ap
pears to-day, contends that public
lauds should not be set up at auc
tion. His position is sound, and in
harmony with the spirit, if not the
letter, of the Homestead Act. Al
though that measure does not pro
vide for the disposition of all public
lands, wc believe the intention of
the Legislature was that henceforth
. those lands were to be primarily
devoted to settlement. The first
section of the Act authorizes anil
instructs the Minister of the Interior
"to cause portions of the public
lands which arc suitable for the pur
pose and not ot the time held by any
person under lease from the Gov
ernment, to be surveyed and laid
out in lots not over twenty and not
less than two acies in extent in dry
or kula land, and not over two acres
in extent in wet or kalo land, with
convenient roads in connection
therewith." The second section
provides' for the valuation of the
lands so surveyed by three ap
praisers the surveyor and two resi
dents of the district where the lands
are situated and for advertising the
lots in the Hawaiian language", and,
if the Minister deems advisable, in
any other language in which news
papers arc published in the King
dom. As wc noticed the other day,
the Minister of the Interior lias
begun to carry out the law, by having
portions of the public domain sur
veyed. Therefore this is a good
time to inform the public of the con
ditions of obtaining homestead lots.
Any person of full age who desires
a lot must apply for it in writing to
the Minister of the luterior, giving
the number of the lot lie wishes to
possess after having seen the plan of
surveyed lands in the Interior De
partment. If his application is ac
cepted, he pays the Minister a fee of
ten dollars upon tho signing and
delivery of the papers. No one will
be allowed to acquire more than one
lot, provided that a person will be
allowed two lots if one is kula land
only and the other kalo land only,
The rule of " first come first served "
is .adopted in the Act whcie more
V than one application for a certain
lot is received ; but if the first ap
plicant doc3 not appear in person or
by attorney in the Department
within one week from the receipt of
his application, the next on the list
will have priority of churn on the
land, and so on. In addition to the
fee of ten dollars, above mentioned,
the applicant has to pay quarterly in
advance the interest on -the purchase
price at ten percent per annum. The
price is to be paid at the end of five,
years, or, if not forthcoming, a
mortgage on the premises for the
prlco, or any unpaid balance thereof,
sholl be given by the holder to tho
Minister of thu Interior, t'pon re
ceipt of tho money, or otherwise the
nioi Igngc, Ihc Minister shall deliver
to the holder of the lnnd a loyal
patent for it. The holder is ic
quircd to place n dwelling house on
the lot, and begin to use It us such,
within one year from the granting of
his application. lie may pay tho
whole or part of the purchase price
nt any timo in advance of its being
due, ami then be entitled to a cor
lcpondmg reduction in the interest:
but in no case will a royal patent be
granted until full five ycais have
elapsed from thu dale of agreement.
Assignments of land under the Act
arc not assignable. In case of the
death of the holder of a lot within H
the five years, his rights in the land
go to his heirs-al-law, subjeot to
their fulfilling his pait of the agree
ment. Such is the tenor of the Home
stead Act, and, although it docs not
specifically devote all public lands to
settlement, it would be undoubtedly
a breach of the intention of the
Legislature, if the Government were
now to dispose of large tracts of
land, suitable for settlement, for
purposes not contemplated in that
measure. The next step of the Min
ister, according to the Act, will be
the advertising of lots surveyed for
homesteads. It is, therefore, now
in order for all who have influence
with the working classes, native and
foreign, to use their best endeavors
to have a large list of applications
for homesteads filed in the Interior
Department whenever they arc called
for. "Wc should like to have had the
conditions of acquiring homesteads
made even easier than they arc. In
view of the great advantage to the
country of having the public lands
settled, the Treasury could well
afford dispensing with the ten per
cent interest upon the purchase
money. However, that requirement
cannot be modified before the next
meeting of the Legislature, and per
haps by that time events will have
proved that no easier conditions are
necessary to have the lands readily
taken up as offered.
THE PANAMA CANAL.
Perhaps it is an innate disposition
to admire pluck and enterprise which
makes us slow to entertain doubts
of M. de Lesscps' ultimate success
in his devoted perseverance in the
Panama Canal project. Our faith
in the remarkable Frenchman has,
however, to sustain severe strains
from the persistent 'attempts being
made to write the enterprise down,
by professed experts and special
investigating commissioners. There
is just one consideration that prevents
such evidence as follows from over
throwing our confidence in the result
at Panama of the same enterprise
and energy that gave the world the
Suez Canal. That consideration is
that it is in the interest of the capi
talists promoting rival schemes of
interoccan transportation to disparage
the Panama project at the present
time. The New York Times of
Feb. 23rd says:
A clear, full statement of what
has been done by tho Panama Canal
Company is given by a thoroughly
informed correspondent this morn
ing. The most conspicuous fact is
the disparity between the outlay re
quired to complete the canal and the
money in the hands of the company.
It is within bounds to cstimato that
700,000,000 francs arc necessary in
addition to tho 730,000,000 already
secured, in order to complete the
oxcavation and pay the current in
terest charges. The correspondent's
conclusion is that at the present rate
of construction it will bo impossible
to finish tho canal for years beyond
the time fixed for its completion.
The problem of pioviding against
tho freshets of the Charges river is
one of the most difllcult with which
the company has to deal. The pre
sent plan is to construct an immense
dam costing 100,000,000 francs.
Tho chances seem very much against
the completion of the cannl in the
lifetime of De Lcsseps.
The Han Francisco Merchant has
a very sarcastio article upon the
action of the House of Representa
tives in throwing out tho Pacific
Mail subsidy. It says: "Congress
is constituted in a great measure of
men who possess no qualifications
whatever for their position. The
accidental discovery, in the majority
of cases, of some local 'boss' who
runs a saloon or corner grocery,
they go to Congress to carry out the
Instructions of thejr Inventor, nnd
therefore) it Is not to bo wondcicd
that they should inaKo a prclcnco of
political honesty by voting against
a proposition which would benefit
the commercial uiul Inuliug interests
of the country, but which contained
nothing conducive to their own per
Thu Chamber of Commerce, at Its
meeting to-day, took no further ac
tion upon thu currency question, be
yond formally approving the action
of its committee lately in conference
with tlii' Minister of Finance. It is
difficult to ay what action the body
could have taken without incurring
thankless and unduu responsibilities.
If thu Privy Council can afford to
ignore the most crying public ques
tion of the day, probably the Cham
ber of Commerce can also do so.

PLEASE take notice tbat the UNIT
ED CARRIAGE CO. (Telephone
2!KI), having been re-organized, wish
lcspcctfully to inform Tourists and the
public generally, that in order to com.
pete with another firm they have
found it necessary to unite more strong,
ly, and have selected fiom about 250
backs now running in Honolulu, a num.
ber of lirst-class teams, which in addi.
tion to tlie teams wc already have make
the UNITED CARRIAGE CO. the
strongest in Honolulu. Most of the
drivers in this company, who by bard
work and pcrsocianeo have become
owneib of the teams they drive, have
agreed to conform to certain rules
deemed ncccssaiy by the managers for
tho protection of Tourits and tlie pub
lic against overchaiging, incivility, &c.
Two very important rules governing the
driveis of the UNITED CARRIAGE
CO., are Rule No 1, that" expels any
driver fiom the company who wilfully
chaiges more than the legitimate rates
of fare ; Rule No. 2 compels any of our
drivers to respond to a Telephone call
whether it be a Ten Cent or a Ten Do!,
lar faie. Thus it can bu seen that the
object of the company is to supply the
public, with good teams driven by good,
reliable men, who will do their bct.1 to
give satisfaction, and hope by so doing
to merit a share of public patronage.
All complaints left at our olllcc, in the
shape of a note directed to the managers
of the UNITED CARRIAGE CO., will
iccclve piompt attention.
