about his trusteeship of the Williams

tho United States.
"I know what I am talking about,'
said tho veteran Honolulu lawyer on

an owner of this very land."
Mr. Dunne, observing that the wit

Mr. Castle went on to say that tho
Williams estate held tnc land Jointly
with James I. Dow sett and sold Its In

Washington, Februar) 18, 1902.
Tho Secretary of tho luteilor.
Sir. Tho Commissioner of Public
Lands for the Territory of Hawaii, In
a written communication, dated Feb
ruary T, 1902. states that the Mcllryde
Sugar Company, a Hawaiian corpora
tion, has made application to oxchango
about 2040 acres of land, owned by It in
fee, situate on the Island of Knual for
about 0000 acres ot public land sltuato
on tho same Island, and that Governor
Dole desires to obtain a ruling.
On tho question, whether such ex
change of land, It In othcr.uspccts ad
visable would be precluded by reason
of the piovlso In section G3 of the Or
ganic Act of the Territory, which re
quires that no association hold nnd
acquire over one thousand (1000) octcs
The question has been refered to me,
with a request for an opinion.
It appears, from the papers submit

tho general laws of Hawaii relative to Sugar Company, noted elsewhere In

KONA'S PROSPECTS ARE NOW
THAT GIVES GREAT PROMISE
There Is great activity of lato In
matters pertaining to tho District of
Kona on tho Island ot Hawaii, and
from tho looks ot things thoru Is eoon
to bo a very much brighter prospect
offered to those Inteicstcd. It was
Btatcd oxcluslvcly In the Uullctln yes

In the morning at which tnero was a
proposition that Dillingham
should take hold ot tho Kona
rvimnnnv nrralrH which for weeks nast'that on tho steamer arriving here on
havo been In a muddled state. It was
alBo stated that thero would bo nnoth-!
cr meeting In the afternoon nt which
somo action would bo taken.
As a result ot these meetings and
other conferences that havo been held
sinco Hrewer &. Co. refused to havo
an) thing to do with the proposition, a
petition Is being passed around among
the stockholders ot tho Kona Sugar
Company today for their signatures.
This petition Is addressed to S. M.
Damon, head of tho banking house of
Dishop & Co , for him to accept an as
signment or tho receivership as a trus
tee, of tho Kona Sugar Company. The
stockholders represent that their In
terests nio In great Jeopardy on ac
count of tho action of tho present re
ceiver, Fred. Wundenbcrg, and thnt
tmmedinto action Is necessary It they
aro to bo saved from a rollnpso. rhay
nro willing to make a complete trans
fer of all tho property Included In the
ivona Sugar Company to Mr. Damon
or any agent ho may name, upon tho
advancement of the money to relievo
the present situation, as a protection
for this advance.
Thero Is no question about this prop
osition being generally taken up by
tho stockholders for, although tho peti
tion wob only started on its way this
moinlng, theie have been names sign
ed thereto which tepresent 3B00 shares
out of tho total ot 5000.

applicable lo the present Inquiry, Is as
Provided, That no corporation, do

it Is plainly evident, from the word

hold, to 1000 acres. The pow er of Con

letter of the Governor of the Territory
Whether, In cases of exchange ot
lands authorized by the laws of Ha
waii, private parties should convey the
lands to the United States or the Ter
ritory of Hawaii.
The Governor's letter was written In
answer to jour letter of March 8, 1901,
requesting Information respecting pub'
lie land transactions in Hawaii, and
the ocaslon for the question propound
ed by the Governor sufficiently appears
from tho following part of his letter
Governor Dole's Query.
In regard to tho fourth paragraph of
the said letter, to wit "That "Infor
mation Is ulso desired ns to whom In
cases of oxchangc of lands authorized
by statute, private parties convey their
lands, whether to the United Stnte
or national government or to the Ter
ritory of Hawaii," such conveyances so
far have been made to the Territory of
Hawaii, Nearly all exchanges have
been made for street and road widen
ing It am not sure that the Territorial
act provides that "all moneys In the
Hawaiian Treasury and nil the reve
nues and other property acquired by
the Republic of Hawaii since said ses
sion (Joint resolution of annexation)
shall bo nnd remain the property of
the Tirrltory of Hawaii," It would ap
