It is refreshing to noto that
It'V. Kiueaid takes up tho cudgtd

quiring a man to havo a cortain
amount ofcnBhbeforo he is allowed
a voico in affairs, ib contrary to all
tenets of American justice. Every
possiblo forco should be com
Lined to prevent the oxtenRion of
such a tbeory to this corner of
American territory. Rev. Kin

that tho property qualification
idea is now getting its strongest
support from the theorizers who

THIS WAIIIA1VA LANDS.
Tho disposition of theso lands
to a colony of sol tiers promoted
by Byron O. Clark has called forth
diverse and sundry comment that
is iutretting to eiiy the least. At
first the Bulletin was in receipt
of considerable criticism directed
at Mr. Clark for bringing men
down here and trying to make the
"new comers" believe that a living
could Im made from tho land.
Later came the correspondence
critcising the Qovernmout for
letting out this land to "new
comers" and intimating thoro were
plenty of local peoplo who would
have been glad to take up the laud
hnd they known it was opeu to the
Taking tho history of tho dispo
sition of this tract as a wholo,there
is nt) reason for seriously criticis
ing tho action of the Government,
the land having been bandied in a
manner strictly within tho letter
nul appa-ent iritout of the law.
The Land Aot of 1895 provides
th it fix or more persons who are
quilified to apply for Cash Free
holds may apply for holdings in
one blodk of land, and the Lind
Commissioners, with the approval
of thn Oa'iinqt, may ctme a tract
to be survoyed. Provisions of the
Act relative to cash fron holds
shall b followed "provided that
the notico by the Agent of Public
Lands doalaripg such land open
for settlement shall be directed to
suoh settlement association and
eh ill bo in one language only."
It appears fiat tho Wabiawa
land was tiaosforred from the
Coramis-iiono'-a of Public Instruc
tion to die general government
April 8, 1897. Laud Agent Brown
states, "From fiat time on, the
land was r ointed o it as govern
ment Ian I, available under tho
laud act." Wo are not disposed
to doubt Mr. Brown's word, and
conmquent'y cannot agree that

Clark for himself and
others male application for
that portion of Wahiawn
bolow the fdto.it to be sot nsido for
purpose! of a settlement associa
tion. Tho Commissioners of Pub
lie Landu, with tin approval of
tho Exocutivo Couioil, grunted
tho applicit'on, and reserved the
laud for 12 months for such pur
pose. Tho laud was appraised by
0. P.JIaukea and M. D. Monsar
rat; it was survfyed; and tho set
tlement asfosiation was installed.
It is worthy of note that this
land was "on tho market," opon
for application for over a year bo
foro nuyono took it up. It mBy
also be noticed Hint the law doos
not require tho land of settlement
associations to bo put up at auc
tion as in the caso of the cash free
holds, nor is tho government re
quired to givo notice to others
than the membors of tho associa
tion that tho land is open. It is
matter left to tho discretion of the
Land O.immiasionera and the
Executivo Council whother 'land
shall granted settlement associa
tions or held fo1 cash freeholders.
Generally sppakim; it Booms to
havo been a case of first como
It is apparent that the law gives
a dietinct advantago to those set
tlomout associations. Onco they
get the approval of the Laud Com
missioners and the Executive,
possible individual purchasers aro
shut out and thoro is no possibility
of increasing tho return to tho gov
ornmout through the competition
of an auction. The appraisers sot
tho price and if tho association of
settlor is satisfied with tho figure,
tho land is theirs.
Tho best thing and the only
thing our oomplaining correspon
dents can do is to socuro a chaugo
in tho law.
ANOTHER FATAL COLLISION
Private A. Herrington of Co M,
10th Infantry, who came ip tho
Soandia, died aboard that vobboI
at about 10 o'clock Sunday morn
ing, death resulting from an inju
ry to tho abdomen, recoivod in a
colli-ion with Joe Kalana's hack
on Pauahi stroot at about 2:15 p.
Decoasod bad been riding about
tho city on a wheel and was about
to return his bicycle to the shop
from which he had obtained it,
when tho accident montioned oc
curred. Kulaua's hack turned in
to Pauahi street from Smith. .De
ceased was going the other way.
Before either ono could got out of
the WAy, there was a collision and
deceased fell, ouo of tho shafts of
tho back having ponotrnted his
abdomon. He was taken to the
Hcaudia and placod in charge of
Surgeon Van Tyle but nothing
could bo done for him. Death re
sulted as rotated above. ,
A coroner's jury was'j called.
Deleberatious were begun nud
then postponed until Tuesday
afternoon at 10 o'clock. Kalana
claims ho oried out to Horrincton
several times but that tho soldier
had his head turned and kept ad
vancing at great speed straight
toward the hack.
Mrs. J. Kaao, who was in the
hack at the timo of tho accident
has been arrested on tho ohargo
of obstruotiug and perverting jus
tice. Police oftinor Akakani, a
Samoan, who mado tho arrest,
tolls the following story:
"As soon as I saw a soldier had
been hurt, I rushod into tho crowd
and tried to get all tho
information I could regarding
tho case. I noticed sevoral sol
diers had hold of Kalana's horse
and, questioning the driver, found
his was tho hack that had caused
tho injury to the man stretched
out on the ground.
"I saw the immediate necessity
of getting the injurod soldier to a
dootor and asked Mra. Kaao to get
out' of the carriage bo that I mjght
put him in and take ,him away.
This she .refused persistently to
do, saying simothiqg about the
'robbers of our country.' Kalana
tried his best to got hor out, but
still she refused.
"Soldiers then gathered around
act of turning it over whon I in
terfered and, with the assistance
of some Boldiors, cot Mrs. Kaao
out of tho carriage. Naturally,
tin forco with which she camo out
was groat, as she held to tho hack
like grim death, Sho was thrown
to the ground and her clothes
torn. Tho injured man was placod
in tl u hack and takon to tho
Scatidia by bis friends.
"Mrs. Kaae rofused to go
along to tho polico station.
Some of tho soldiers helped me
and we finally got bor to tho police
station. Sheplaims I treated her
brutally but I know I did my
duty. Sho would not como out of
tho hack nud a man whoso life
was in danger, had to got to a
physician as soon as possible. I
used force, not brutality, as anyone
whowus around at tho time, will
M. Aona was anothor arrested
on tho charge of obstructing and
pervorting justice. Officer Aka

Kaao to remain in tho carriage
while ho was doing his best to get

and Aona will come up in tho

Mrs. Kaao could not bo seen by
a Bulletin reporter this foronoon

It has been docrood by tho Com
missioners of Kapiolani Park to
cut down tho fino grove of .iron
wood trees at tho townBido ontrnnco

and Park Bangor McCoHum's
cottage. Tho (roes aro tbo growth
of twenty yeais aud havo attained
the stately height of a hundred feet.
They form ono side to each of two
beautiful vistas ono on- tho main
avouue leadiDg to Diamond Head,
tho other on the driveway past
Mflkee island, which continues
arntiud tho park.
For the grovo thus doomed it is
intended to substituto n lawn.
Somo of tho peoplo who havo been
apprised of this contemplated ac
tion of the Commissioners do not
like tho idea a bit. It is known
that even some the Commissioners
do uot approve of tho scheme. Tho
objectors Bny that another placo
could bo selected for a lawn in
the domain of 2G0 acres forming
tho park. Also that it will not
