The opening of Hawaii's season
of acqnatic sports finds no big

of tropical climes, tho croakers
can find little to strengthen their

the people of Hawaii.
A correspondent asks what is to
become of the S50.000 worth of
public lauds sold by the local gov
ornruptit since Autjust 12th, 1898.
Tho Bulletin has previously
stated that every title to public

President McKinley's latest

from "rng bng brains." Such an
educational policy in tho now pos
sessions of the United Statrs
make glad tho hearts of Godkin
and Atkinson. It adds to thoir
list of American traitors.
After having made twenty-five
millions of dollars and contribut
ed one dollar toward tho improve
ment of tho cemetery in which his
mother is buriod, Russell Sage
said, on tho occasion of his eighty
third birthday, "I have realized
most of tuy idoals and am satis

Let tho Pauuhi street nnmo

the name of one of the noblest wo
men of the land. Whethor Pauuhi
street was named for tho late
Princess or not, tho government
ought to have sufficient respect for
tho uiidio, in its association with
an ideal womanly character, to

LANDS THAT WERE SOLD
Euixon Evening Bulletin:
The digost of the Land Act of
Hawaii of 181)5 says: "Applicants
for laud under systems named
above I, Homestead Lease: II,
Right of Purchase Lease; III,
Cash Freehold; must bo ovtfr
eighteen years of age, must be
citizens by birth, or naturalization
or have received letters of deniza
tion or special rights of citizen
ship, be under no civil disability
for any offenso, nor delinquent in
the payment of taxes.
Since the rnisiog of the flag
governmei)t officials state it in
sufficient that an applicant for
laud be a citizen of tho United
State and make sworn declara
tion of such fact.
By tho Newlands resolution all
tho publio property aud public
lauds of Hawaii vested in tho
government at Washington, but
since tuo ratification ot tho An
nexation resolution by tho Hn
waiiau government on Aug. 12,
1898 over 7000 acros of public land
of uu aggregate valuo of $50,000
has been disposed of undor the
oriuiua! laws of Hawaii of 1895
with the exception that an Ameri

A looal government official baa
made tho statement that when tho
Olaa aquattors protested to Wash
iugton against the ealo by the
local covornmeut, of the land they
claimed to have preempted, their
protest was referred back to the
local government without any
iuHttuctiouB. Then it was that
the government here wrote to
Washington to find out "whore it
was at" and what it had to do.
Two sales advertised havo been
lio'itpnued, one till Nov. 4th and
tho other indotlnately.
Why, if tho local government
has had tho right to proceod with
the soiling of 7000 acres of publio
lnnd sinco Annexation are thoy at
this lute day looking to Washing
ton for instructions as to how to
proceed. Have the laud laws of
Hawaii been construed as "muni
cipal legislation" or aro thoy
Ionization directly contrary to tho
land laws of tho United 8totes ?
Hpre we have a government
which is not even tenitorial as
yet, , taking upon itself tho dis
posal of publio land. This is a
power over which a full fledged
state has no control. By virtuo of
the United States Constitution all
publio lands are vested in the
Eideral government excepting
such land as the Federal govern
ment has given to tho state gov
ernments for stato purposes. In
case of a ruling by the govern
ment at "Washington in favor of
the stnnd taken by tho Olaa
