A HOPEFUL SCHEME.
It is not always that the public
advocates of a cause designed for
the welfare of a country, particularly
if the object is a novel one, have
the satisfaction of seeing the fruits.
of their endeavors appealing Until
after many yctus of ;Trsevcring
labor. When locojrli) can be got
even to listen tjou'inytliiiig new, there
is occasiojj-fsr much gratification on
the pait of those who propound it.
A little over a year ago this paper
presented a series ot in tides, advo
cating the peopling of all available
lands in the kingdom with independ
ent producers. The cue was taken
from the Act promoted by Mr. Dole,
passed by the last Legislature, " to
facilitate the acquirement and settle
ment of homesteads." From the
immediate effects of those articles it
was evident that they struck a res
ponsive chord in the minds of many
of the most substantial and thought
ful residents of the country. An
objection, it was true, was urged,
that the public domains of the king
dom would scarcely yield sufficient
land fit for settlement to bear up
any extensive movement in the way
of colonization. This drawback
was, however, speedily offset by the
voluntary offer, by a heavy land
owner, tlnough these columns, of a
large, cultivable and fertile aiea on
this island, to be divided into small
farm holdings for any suitable class
of settlers that could be obtained.
Another old lcsident, one of out
most prominent capitalists, followed
with the suggestion of a scheme
for obtaining possession, in the
interest of colonization, of a por
tion of the crown lands. This
, proposition was duly put forwatd,
but it cannot be acted upon except
by the Legislature, and we hope
the next Assembly may take it up.
These results of agitating the
question of colonization were in
themselves hopefully indicative of a
bioad national policy in the mntter
reaching f i uition within a measur
able period. But a more definite
and practical undei taking was des
tined to come at once to the front.
It was no, less than a scheme for
throwing open, and procming set
tlers for, large arable tiacls of land
on the western end of this island,
chiclly owned by Mr. James Camp
bell, a leading capitalist. These lands
aro capable of being utilized in
various bfnlichcs of husbandly, but
have hitfu'ito, with the exception of
n few small sugar plantations, been
productive only as glazing grounds.
Largo herds of cattlo nrc maintained
in different parts of the territory,
which would still have room and
feed enough after many thousands
of people v ere settled in comfort
able homesteads. An admirable
method was adopted for bringing
these lands to the notice of the king
dom and of tho v orld at the incep
tion of the bchcmc. Mr. B. F.
Dillingham, the leading promoter,
organized un expedition of members
of tho press ami others, to explore
Jllpwiioje region. This resulted iu
the lauds being thoroughly described
In all the English papers of Hono
lulu, through which the Information
was scaltcicd far and wide wheic it
was calculated to have due effect.
Next n piovisional company was
foimed, under the name of "The
Hawaiian Colonization, Land and
Ti ust Company," and a preliminary
prospectus issued, which has been
given enormous circulation through
the newspapers, the Planters'
jftlotitrfy, and detached pamphlets
by the thousand. These cffoits to
present the scheme to the public at
home and abroad have already
yielded good promise of ultimate
success. Lcttcis of enquiry have
crossed continents and oceans to
reach the piomotcis. Fiiendi and
agents of the kingdom in foiuign
lands aic eiicomaging the piojcct,
and looking about them for capital
to start it, and for settlers to occupy
the available territory and build up
the nation. Applications in large
number have already been received
for apportionments of land. That
all these gratifying lcsults should
have been obtained within so shoit a
pctiod speaks well for the intelligent
devotion of the gentlemen who have
assumed the undertaking, besides
justifying sanguine anticipations that
one of the most important enter
prises ever mooted in this kingdom
one designed to have the most far
reaching, beneficial influences upon
national prosperity will before many
months be successfully put into
In a succeeding article some pro
minent features of the project will
be presented, showing what promise
ittyffoids capitalists of returns, and
advantages to settlers regauling a
choice of homes.
The San Fnincisciki' article,
piintcd yesterday, on thclU'oposed
sale of the Hawaiian Islands, sltOVfS
the usual amount of knowledge
characteristic of the effusions of
writers of sensational aiticlcs on
foieign politics. Part of the scheme
foreshadowed in that article is to
pay the Dowager Queen Emma a
million dollars. When the writer of
the Post's atticlc learns that the
Dowager Queen Emma was interred
with royal and state honors on the
17th of last May, he will have ac
quired probably his first item of
circumstantial knowledge of the
Kingdom whose destinies he assumes
to fix with the prescience of a Del
