Washington, Kov. 2. In his annual
report, Commissioner Hermann, or me
(leneral Land Olllcc, makes tho fol
lowing references anil comments upon
the public lands of the Hawaiian Isl
ands: Prior to the year 1S46 tho InndB In
Hawaii belonged In legal contempla
tion to the King, and tho chiefs and
tho people as tenants, by a system
closely resembling tho former feudal
system of England. In that year,
however, tho King granted to his.
chiefs and people certain other por
tions of the land, to government pur
poses certain other portions, and re
tained for himself the remainder, and
this act was ratified by his legislature
on June 7, 1818. Tho lands thus passed
to the King and his heirs were thence
known as Crown lands.
In 1850, one-twcntlcth of all pub
lic lands were set apart for tho sup
port of schools, which tho school board
was cmpoweicd to sell and lease. Un
der tho homestead act of 1881 landless
, applicants were permitted to acquire
title to two acres of taro, or wet lands,
and 'not moro than twenty acres of dry
In 18D1 a part of the Crown lands
was divided-Into small tracts, and tho
method of leasing them to homestead
applicants on easy terms was Instltut
In tho year 1895, after the Republic
of Hawaii had been established, tho
Legislature passed an Act. designated
rb tho "Land Act. 1595," which now
remains in force, and which provides a
comprehensive tj-stom for tho cure anil
disposition of the public domain. By
this act Crown lands aro treated as
having vested In tho Republic, and
they, together with the public lands
before mentioned, now constitute th
public lands of tho Territory.
The absolute feo nnd ownership of
all public. Government, or Crown lands
situated In Hawaii wero absolutely
ceded t5, und became tbo property of,
tho United States upon the annexation
of tho Hawaiian Islands.
In Hawaii a better syBtcm of sur
veys appears to havo been followed
than In tho Philippines.
From the data received at this ofllco
from Honolulu the following facts are

These districts are divided Into suh

REPORT OF GOVERNOR
FOR THE TERRITORY
WAS MADE BY COOPE!
Washington, November 3. Authority for the conversion of all Hawaiian silver coins Into corresponding
cclnc of the United States, and for the Immigration of a limited number of Chines; laborers, conditioned upon
their engaging In agricultural pursuits only during their residence In the Territory and tholr return to their own
country upon ceasing to be farmers, are the recommendations of H. E. Coo. er, Acting Governor of Hawaii, in
hla annual report.
Other recommendations are for the maintenance of an expert forester In the Islands, to Investigate and
report on forest conditions and forestry conservation and extension; the d.-tall of a special agent of the Floli
Ccmmlcslon at Honolulu, and the adoption of restrictive measures to prevent wanton destruction of tho food
fishes of the Territory; tho granting licenses to divert water from lards, where It lo of no avail, to arid sec
tions that owners arc adapting to agricultural pursuits; the erection of a Fcdcial building at Honolulu for tho
accommodation of the Federal Court, Pcstofflce, Custom house and Federal officials; tho retention from the
customs receipts of a sufficient oum to pay Judgments of the Commission or Fire Clalrr.c: the gathering of statis
tics to'chow the shipments between the Mainland and the islands, ard the appointment of a deputy secretary -to
act during the disability of the Secretary of the Treasury for Territorial pui poses only.
Tho prosperity of the Islands, a-cordlng to the Acting Governor, depends upon the successful and econom
ical production of sugar. "I he employment of Chinese and Japanese by t..e planters," he says, "never has Inter
fered and never will interfere with either American skilled or unskilled labor; but If an amplo supply of desir
able labor can be obtained It means mlllont of dollars spent for machinery, buildings, tolls, steel and Iron and
other supplies of American make.
"Since the annexation the Immigration of unskilled laborers has practically ceased, while many of the Chi
nese and Japanese have returned to their native countries. Between June 14, 1900, and August 31, 1901, 4079
Japanese have left the Territory, whllo only 589 have arrived. All sugar plantation stocks consequently have
fallen far below their former value, and this has had the effect of producing a stringency in the money market,
from which many have .suffered lots.
"If no relief It forthcoming the most disastrous results surely will follow. It Is a physleal Impossibility for
the Anglo-8axon race to satisfactorily perform the severe labor required In the sugar fields. Hawaii, therefore,
it entitled 'to legislation favorable to Ita greatest Industry." .... .

leadluess to undertnko at unco the
conclusion of tho now Hay-Pauncefole

half an hour. Many topics were touch

not given particular consideration to

ing rather picllmlnary to tno begin
ning ot tho treaty drafting.
Lord Pnuncefoto did not bring with

although tho principal points of the

BRIGHT FROSPECTS FOR REPUBLICAN PARTY
New York, November 6. A special to the Brooklyn Eanla from Washington says: The general result of
yesterday's election Is regarded by political leaders hero as meaning that tha tide tnat c:t toward tne Republican
patty ard Its policies seven years aga still flows in that direction, though wltn lessened foice. They arguo
that as no sign of an ebbing of the tide Is visible this year, nono will be th-co years her.ee, and that therelore
President Roosevelt's successor, whet ,er hlrr.sslf or another, will be a Republican. Already they are attempting
to forecast tne effect of yesterday's results upon his fortunes and wondeiinj wnether It mcars tnat, he will be the
tit st Vice President succeeding to ths Presidency by the death of his chief ta be nominated by his party as his
own successor a nomination that thty assert will be equivalent to elcctbn.
A powerful factor in tho situation is the evident Inaollity of the Democratic party to find an Issue upon
which they can unite or a man who can unite them, regardless of issues. Or course, this condition continues
In the Democratic party it will work to the advantage of whomsoever the R publicans may rame.
The party leaders of both sides at this time, viewing the situation In the light of tne late elections as they
appear to them here at the national caiital, assume, as practical politicians, that the conditions under wnlch the
next Presidential campalon will be contested, will be substantially those trut now prevail, and tnr.- tnlt ueing the
case inc ncpuoucans win win.
