Editoh Bulletin: Having
boon present at tho discus
sion over the soctions of tho
Lend Bill referring to the Olaa
district in both Houses of tho
Legislature, and haviug noticed a
wo fill want of information among
our legislators of tbo character and
probable Yuluo of lands und tho
condition of tbo so-called govern
ment roads which are supposed to
traverse tho district and load to
tho lands proposed to bo eottlod.I
may he pardoned for asking somo
of your space to give a littlo infor
mation on tbe subject which has
been dorirod from actual experi
ence. Boforo going further I may
state that I am an interested par
ty, having leased two sections, or
about 85 acres, of land at tho 15
mile point which lio on the second
tier or about 15U0 feot hack from
tho Volcano road. Last Soutom
bor I visited tho Olaa district and
spent three weeks there, putting
in most of my time visiting tho
diflorent plantations and studying
the coifeo business Ah I walked
every foot of tho road from.Hilo
to tbe Volcano and back and visit
ed nearly every clearing on too
way, both on tho main Volcano
road and in the buck settlements
I may bo presumed to know where
of I spoak.
Tbe lands bordering on tbo Vol
cano nmd on oither s.do are known
as the first tior of lots in tho Olaa
survey, oach lot containing from
40 to 45 acres. Thoso directly
back of thorn are known as tho
second tier und again those back
of tho eocond are the third tier
and so on.
Tho House Land Bill provides
that tbe valuo of tho lands in tho
first, second and third tiors for
the purposes of obtaining the land
patents shall be fixodut $8, H and
$2 per aoro respectively. This
would soom to bo much more
equitable than tho valuation
adopted by the Sonato which was
.$8, $6 and $3, and I will endmivor
to show why. Both branohes of
tho Legislature aro agreed thut $8
is right for the first tier of lots,
hence that figuro may bo adoi ted
as the standard. Tho loeseea of
theso lota have tho advantngo of a
well-macadamized road oxtond
ing along tho entire front
of their lots with tho
privilege of cutting an oponiug
of 400 foot through tbo strip re
served on tho odgo of tho road for
tbo purpose of erecting houses,
barns, fco. It is needless to stato
that ovory ownor of these lots hns
availed himself of this privilego
and hns or will tako tho full ex
tout of tho '100 feot allowed him.
Tbo road fronting bis lots is
maintained nud kept in good
order at govornmont exponso. As
to whether $8 an aero is a roason
ablo figure for thoso lots is not in
question. It has boon adopted
by both Housos and tho sottlors
soom to bo satisfied.
How is it with tbo second .and
third tiors? What is theactual con
dition of affairs regarding thom?Go
into tho Land Oflico and vou will
bo informed that at every half
rnilo thoro is a government road
whioh starts at right angles to
the Volcano road and goes past
tho second and third tiers. So
thoro is, Mr. Editor, but tho
road is principally on pnpor or
oxists in the minds of tho govorn
mont and tbo land department.
"Whoa tho Olaa survoy was
made these by - roads were
laid out and an attompt at
road building made. The donso
undor growth was cleared out and
many of tbo tree forns and obias
out down, but nothing was dono
towards grading the roads or
macadamizing them. Tho work
dono will nil havo to be dono
ovor again boforo any sottlers on
tho socond or third tiors of lots
can comVnonce work ovon. It is
1500 foet from tho Volcano road
to tho" corner of my first lot, apd
although I am a fair walker it
took lne all of half an hour on
tho tbreo oaoasions I visited the
placo to got over that distance.
If I build a bouse ovory stick of
lumber must be carried from tho
main road to my lot on a man's
back, for nothing with whoelB
oven us wide as Senator McCaud
less would havo them can get
ovor those so-called cross roads.
About 150 feot from tho corner of
my lot in tho contor of whore the
road is supposod to bestands ono
of the largest trees in the islands
und right at its roots is a gully
somo 15 feot deep and 50 foot
wido. This must bo filled up
and the tree cut down before I
could think of hauling lumbor to
my lot. The road-builders forgot
that portion of their work, My
condition is that of every other
settlor on tho second and third
tiers, only some of them aro much
worse ofF. Wo havo one nnd all
given up any hopo of tho Govern
ment ever doing anything, al
though porsonal representations
were made both to President Dolo
and Curtis Iaukea on their visit
last fall, and tho condition of the
oross roads pointed out to them.
But, of course, that is tho last of it.
Now I maintain, Mr. Editor,
that as wo have to build our own
roads to tho second and third
tiers of lots ive should not be ex
pected to pay anything liko what
thoso do who have a first-clubs
road ready made for thorn. Eight
dollars boing tho prico on tho
main road, ono half that is all
that could bp reasonably expect
ed for those lots in tbo roar. J t
will cost mo tho difleronco be
tween S8 und $4 to build a road
to my pluco, and then lam farther
from civilization and markets.
Sountor McCandloss told a
s't'-ry in the Senate about a settler
who claimed that ho could only
get his wife out to tho road once a
month, and then bo had to lose a
wholo day nnd burrow a horse to
do it with. I know that to be a
fact, Air. Editor, for 1 havo beon
over the road, seen tho lady and
tbo horse too.
It is 3,000 feot from tho Volcano
road to that lady's houso and tho
first thing you havo to do is to go
through about fifty foet of swamp
with running water in tho middle.
Ovor this u bridge must be built
boforo a team could pass. This is
only a so-callod govornmont road,
through most of whioh you havo
to out your way with a oano knife.
1 submit that under tbeso cir
cumstances and othera which oonld
bo mentioned, tho Houso valua
tion on these socond and third tior
lots is high enough.
