For trade to come along
Isn't worth the breath that one would I
To tell him he Is wrong.
For wealth Isn't flowing 'round this ,
For every lazy man to sup;

And go and hunt It up.

APPARENTLY EVADING LAND ISSUE
The Doard of Immigration hold rath
er a lively meeting In the Magoon build
ing at- 8 o'clock this morning and the
burden of the song there sung wns that
the plantations bad been extremely
backward In coming forward to sup
port the Hoard In the matter of secur
ing from the Azores or elsewhere the
1000 agricultural families which tho
Secretary of tho Territory and tho
chairman of the Hoard, A. U C. Atkln
von. Is about to go after.
Tho opinion was expressed by Com
missioner J. 1'. Cooke that some of the
sugar planters had been taking advant
age of the Hoard and that It was high
time that plantations, other than the
few which had made promises In re
gard to giving land to the prospective
rctllers. came forward and gave somo
kind of a guarantee of willingness to
tlo the right thing.
There was much talk of this kind
and the meeting ended with no definite
Idea except that the plantation should
bo aroused to tho necessity and Im
portance of getting Into line.
Present at the meeting were Com
missioners J. 1'. Cooke. K. D. Tenner,
John Cardcn and J. P. Craig and As
sistant Secretary Clarence Crabbe and
representatives of tho press.
Crabbe read the minutes of the last
meeting, after which Cooko announced
that ho had received a couplo of letters
I from Mr. Atkinson. The letters were
1 handed to Mr. Crabbe to be read to
tho Hoard. There were somo things
contained therein that members of the
Hoard requested tho members of the
press not to publish at this time, not
that the mattora amounted to anything
as far as Importance went but that they
were embryonic and publicity might
Inlerfero with successful consumma
tion of detail.
Atkinson In his letters started In by
confirming cablegrams ho had sent the
Hoard hero and which uavo already ap
peared In substance In tho local news
papers. Referring to tho fact that
Ilutehlngson, for whom Atkinson
cabled to go on and help him, had snld
that ho could not go at this tlmo nnd
that he, Ilutehlngson, considered It un
necessary that a man should go on at
this time, Atkinson declared that ho
