To Portuguese Immigrants
'" INTERPRETATION OF WORD " ALQUEIRES"
According 1" Portuguese Consul Cannvnrrn there Is no cause for
iHnMntlHfnclUm among Hie newly arrived 1'ortiisueae on the score of
their not roccUIng nil Unit wiib promised In the clrculnrR sent out hy
Him ngents of the Territorial Hoard of Immigration.
Tin- Htiitcrui-nt has been niatlu that the circulars Issued offered the
IriimlKrntitH two litres of land,
Thin Is based on the lutvrprctatlon of the word "nhiuelres" t
which appears In the circulars. 'I he circular read that Iho Imml-
grants would ho given "two iilqtteiies" of land. Some of the younger
Portuguese of tho city have Interpreted this word "nlquelrcs" as
"acre." and ronspiiiciitly claim that tho new comers weie promised
two acres of I.1111I. "f
In speaking f the matter this morning Consul Cnnavarro said
that the local Interpretation Is wrong. This word It one used to des- t
Iguate it small division of land and under a pioper Interpretation -f
"two nlquelics" Is less than one iicie of land.
"II is unfortunate that any misunderstanding should arise," said
Mr. Cnnavarro l a llullctln man. 'hut It Is certain that 'atiuclres
f the word Hied In tho circular, Is not properly Interpreted 11s 1111 acre.
Two nliiuelies Is le-is than 0110 aero of land uud I am iitu sure that
the representatives of the Hoard 'if Immigration have not mlsrepro-
4- rented things to the people contemplating home tiulhllug here. I mil -t-
ipille clear on the Interpretation of the word III question."
