CONDITIONS AND OPPORTUNITIES
BY A CALIFONIAN.
One of the most valuable articles for the edition of the Bulletin Is
sued by the California editors was that on real estate by Mr. Watson. Un
fortunately, the article suffered the fate which all newspapermen acquaint.
, cd with the hurry of "make-up" understand. It was cut In two, decapitat
ed at bot hends and tho proof not corrected. A session of the Editorial
iCouridl will be held to determine the responsibility for the error and
dock the man's pay. Meanwhile the article, In proper shape, appear be.

City Business Property.
'' Opportunities In this lino nro like
wise scarce, llolileru of business
. property, well located, realize tho full
tujuo of their pobltlous, and such
' property Ib not on tho muiket. Ileal-
ly desirable business lots are none
too numerous In Honolulu, and no
one wants an undcsirablo location.
The city Is too old and local capital
loo nlcrt to let cholco holdings in tho
business section go begging. Tho
"for Kilo" sign Is conspicuous by its
Hero Is presented a splendid oppor
tunity, nnd It Is from this class of
purchasers that Honolulu aH a city
will noon bo reaping tho greatest ben
efit. Residence property today Is
cheaper than It will over bo again,
and when tho delights of this country
and climate hecouio better known
throughout tho States, Honolulu will
rco such an Inpoiirlug of permanent
residents as the has never dreamed
of. Thero is ovcry reason In tho
world why this should bo true, and
110 Insiirmnuntuhlo reasons why it
cannot come to pass. In addition, Ho
1 0I11I11 must iuovltably soon have a
Itrgo winter tourist travel, which will
create u demand for rental property.
Southern California has a larger win
ter tourist travel than Northern Cali
fornia for two reasons. First, sho
I as tho superior climate, and second
i-lio began somo joars since, whjlo
Northern California was sleeping, to
illBsemlnato tho knowlcdgo of her
climatic beauties through .alt tbe
Eastern States. Now tho people arc positive detriment to the Islands now,
rpmlng to Southern California In In that tho cusjom ties up the land

additional ones. Let this fact only
become sufficiently known, as you arc
now doing through tho splendid work
of your Promotion Committee, and
you will soon have all tho people hero
For these reasons, and others pure
ly local. It seems to me that residence
property Is now selling at too low a
llguro. It is worth. Intrinsically, moro
than Is being asked for It. Let mo
venturo tho prediction that tho man
who buys well-solectcd residence
iropcrty here at present prices, and
can afford to hold It two or thrco
cars, will be able to pocket a 50 to
0 per cent, profit.
Tho Small Truck Farmar.
Labor Is relatively cheap still In
there Islands, and tho grower of table,
truck should be able to do well hire.
It Is trup that this Industry Is now
almost exclusively In tho bands of the
Orientals, but it docs not at all follow
that an energetic American can not
mako good money In vcgctablo farm
ing, and poultry raising. There are
community, Tho man who comes
hero today with, money In his pocket
sutriclcnt to purchase and Improve
60 to loo acres of land, finds the most
desirable portions' under Icaso from
the Government with two to ten years
yet to run, or he may find 'it owned
by some cstato which either refuses
U4 sell, or Is prohibited from selling
under the terms of Its trust. Any ot
tneso estate lands can bo leased, but
the man with tho truo American spirit
wants to own his land.
Tho Government land upon which
leases aro expiring, Is being put Into
irarkct under purchase conditions
which aro In part fair and In part ra
I thcr prohibitive for tho poor man who
.may want to mako a homo here.
Uhcro seems to be much of Improve
ment possible in tho land laws, but
tho scopo of thl'artlcle will not per
mit their discussion. '
In spite of the difficulties thero aro
nt least two lines of Industry which
teem to offer splendid openings for in-
testment, and which do not ncccsaar

The Larger Farmer.
Under this classification must bo

fear that the demand will not keep
pace with the supply, but this fear
does not seem .to the writer well
Another industry, Bllll newer, has
great possibilities of profit. The
growing of sisal presents an opening
field that can be more easily entered
thnn many another. The Island prod
uct Is admittedly a superior article,
and the cost of the land Is small, and
the caro of the plant, and Its prepara
tion for market, comparatively Inex
pensive. Outside of Investments In

pineapples and sisal would seem at
this writing to present tho greatest
