first place the land lias been used main
ly for tlio raising of sheep and the re
(.ourcca of nntuie hnvo been exhausted
and no attempt has been made to re
plenish them. In many places the for
ests arc all gone and even the grass
which formerly held the soil in place
has been looted up and the wind sweeps
the faith down to the sea. The value
of this Island for nearly every purpose
lias completely gone. '
"There nro 'places on Lanal where
slsnl could be raised very successfully,
but who wishes to lease the land for
this purpose when n lease for only live
j ears ran be obtained T The sisal crop
takes four years to grow and no one
would wish lo expend money In rais
ing one crop nnd then be compelled to
bid for tho land acalnsl an outsider
who hud not expended any money on
the work. It Is unreasonable In fact lo
expect anything of-thls kind.
"Thero Is another matter which Ij
not clear to thn committees, which I
will try to explain by tho maps now
being prepared. That Is tbo amount ot
land which In owned by the govern
ment which cannot bo used by anyone.
Tuko In Ilnwnll for Instance. The
three mountains thorn tako up a largo
part of tbo Island and cannot be used
for anything whntovcr. Still this In
nil (.nvrrnincnt land. In tlio samo way
this occurs on the other Islands. The
maps will show Just what land will
he of uso nnd what cannot bn used.
"I remember when Judge Dole wai
before ii committee In Washington and ,
was being quectloncil on tho subject of'
leases of public lands he was asked
how much land' was under lease, lie
gave the number of acres. Then he
wns asked tho average amount received
per, norn from Iheso leases nnd If I re
member right It was about $07. To
Iho members of the committee this
lieemed ridiculously low and I have no
doubt that fcomn of them, being abso
lutely unfamiliar wllh tho conditions,
thought that thero might be some graft
nut lieio. They thought of the land as
Ihey would of the plains In Kansad.

ognize that almost all the really rich
land hern lias been taken up long ago.
"There Is nnothcr matter which will
bo of thn greatest benefit to Hawaii If
It can bo Huccecsfully ncrompllshfd.
That Is n survey of the water resource
of all tho Islands,. I bcllnvo tbat till

have taken up the matter wllh Eugl
Survey and hope that something may
be accomplished. In this way we may
be able (o find out Just what our water
supplies, both on the surface and uub-terrnm-an,
"1 remember In tlio city of Denver
Iho object lesson which was taught the
peopln In this regard. About twenty
enrs ago nearly everyone thero sunk
an nrtesl.in well and used the wntcrl
Suddenly Iho supply gave out. An ex
pert was sent out fruin the fjeologlcul
Survey, who, after Boinn time spent in
obtaining data, showed that if all tbo
wells which had 'been sunk should- be
rapped It would bo forty years before
tho supply would be the same 03 be
fore thn wells wero sunk. Of course
this meant that there would be no more

great expense had been undergone wllh
"Mr. Nowell's appropriation for this
