Entered at the Postofliff at Honolulu
as second dass matter-
NO FAKE FARMERS.
Got the sottlcr liut bo absolutely
certain that ho Is a bona flilo Bottle.'.
This principle laid down by Gov- j
crnor Krear In his noon-day address
tn tho Commercial Club Is one that
every honest citizen of Hawaii will
buhserlbo to In every detail.
There Is no question that the Gov
ernor Is thoroughly and comdHtently
practical In his Americanization Ideas
and the whole force of his administra
tion will be brought against the fuk'o
fanner who under the various sttbtcr
fugcH of Americanization alms to pot
land for speedy sale and not for u
FREAR FOR SMALL HOLDINGS.'
Governor Krear Is quoted as dc-,
clarlng his approval of small hold
ings In the allotment of Hawaii's
public lands for settlement. He Is
represented as believing that a seek
er for public land should secure an
area large enough to support him
self and family by doing his own
work, rather than a large section to
be cultivated by cheap labor.
If this be a correct statement of
the Governor's views, It Is ample con
firmation of the guarantee of the
U u 1 1 o 1 1 n that the Territorial Ad
ministration will have nothing to do
with fake-farm propositions that
represent nothing more or less than
the feudal landlord and servile labor
applied to wlia land Ilawalf has re- i
ntalnlng. i- V,,i
The Governor evidently Intends to
carry out a practical policy that will
aid In the establishment of perma
nent""honics and Jtidepenaenfeitlzei-
rhlp. This may not be comforting" to
the fake farmer, but It Is the honest
method of dealing with Hawaii's pub
lic lands, and It will gain for the
'lerrltory a citizenship of sturdy
Americans, as opposed to the upbuild
ing of a new type of swollen cor
porations and absentee landlords.
The fnke-farm promoter gets little
consolation from the quotations from
Governor Frear, because the Govern
or's plans do not at any point play
Into the hands of fako farmers.
The fake-farm campaigner In tho
effort to discredit European Immigra
tion asks which Is to be preferred,
the recent Spanish immigrant or tho
This Is an Interesting Invention',
and shows how hard pressed tho fak
Hawaii should not do without olthor,
Those .who deal with tho situation
with any degree of honesty know
that tho number of Wnhlawa Ameri
can farmers remaining on the laud Is
not larger than tho number of Kttro-
pean Immigrants who navo found
lomfortnblo homes, nro doing tho
work, and actually manning the land.
The Wnhlawa cnterprlso In Its
present condition has furnished as
much opportunity for the American
laborer as for tho Asiatic, yet In tho
noma unu mo laciory mo Asiatic la
borer outnumbers tho American
twenty to one.
What Hawaii needs Is more citi
zen or ellglble-cltlzcn labor to till
the soil and establish homes. This
is not secured by a policy that In
creases tho number of overlords.
TAXATION FOR AUTOMOBILES.
Tho automobile-owner's volep was
especially heard throughout tho land
when the kind-hearted legislators
placed a flat-rato tax on automobiles
of twenty dollars for each car. Thu
principle on which this taxation rato
was established has never been fully
Tho fact Is that tho twenty-dollar
rate finally got through tho Legis
lature. Just why tho owner ot a $5,000.

that 'tho tax, rato on autos will, bo

RESTRICTION OF JAPANESE,
The declaration of Count IIu'nsiil
legardlng the probable restriction of J
emigration or Japanese subjects yj
Hawaii and Mexico Is not causo for
tho people of this Territory to become
hysterical or afraid.
It has, unfortunately, become n
legttlar yearly featuro Mr somo peo
ple of this Territory to take some In
cident of legislation or International
dealings as tho signal for the grn-js
to sprout In the streets of Honolulu.
Restriction of emigration to these
Islands Is not exclusion and never
can be. Tho Federal Govcrnmefit
I. as' shown no disposition to imjke
sudden International agreements that1

(Continued from Pace 11
H'he Governor opened his address
by stating that ho had consented to
speak only on th- condition tliut he
be permitted to speak on a very old
subject, ono which had becomo almost
threadbare, but also one which was
of tho greatest Importance and which
was over now, namely: tho question
of small farming and the diversified
industries whether, the ,-ountry was
r.alng to bo populated, .by a citizen
class or by i floating class of Orient
Ho would not speak of tho difficul
ties which wcro lu tho way or go Into,
a discussion ,. us to "whether .they
rhould ho considered as Insurmount
able; ho might go Into a description
of tho climate, tho soil and the man
ifold attractions of Hawaii, and pic
ture tho condition which would exist
when tho country was hold by n nittl
tjtudo of small farmers, and tho ad
vantages which the nicrchantH would
hnvo when thoro was a largo naval
station here, and tho small farmers
would do for Honolulu on a largo
scalo what tho Olaa settlors did for
Illlo on a small scalo; ho might
plcttiro Hawaii as tho center of tho
I'nclflc Ocean when tho Panama Ca
nal was opened and tho products of
the Bllddlo West were coming by tho
unproved Mississippi and otlior great
waterways through the cannl Instead
of tho present channels, but that was

Ho thou wont on to remind his

said that (lint! that Oahu might ho
pioducltig IB, 000 tons and Hwn !000
tons, while the piesctit showed how
far these estimates had been In tho
wrong. Sisal and pineapples had al
so shown how far predictions about
them had been wrong. Tho wisest
wns fooilslt when he was predicting
about tho future. There was a time
when It was thought that thoro was
no lumber here with the exception
ot lion, but the company which hnd
now tulion up tho Industry hnd found
that It'wntf doing Its largest business
with a wood which had been consid
ered good only lor firewood.
In the first place, lu regard to the
sugar Intlustry It was generally look-;
ed upon as ti question' which could
be solved only n,t a sacrifice. Still It
might prove to be economically
found to solve It. If Japanese Im
migration were stopped, as It had
been rcjiortcd would ho tho case,
though the speaker hoped that this
report might prove to be wrong, then
where would the sugar Industry bo?
It looked as If then- was not going
to he much more roinpctltloirfrom the
Coast for labor, but the other .Indus
tries nro going to compete with the
sugar plantors for the labor supply
It might bo Hint l he sugar Industry
must find Home w. to parcel out Its
lands to Email propilelnrs, and still
this might bo found to bo profitable
Tho stigarsiiIanterM had already taken
steps In this direction. Cane was be
ing planted on contracts, and somo
plantations won- giving land In fee
slmplo to their laborers lu order to
hold them. Thereby tho laborers
Were anchored to the plantations', not
only because they had homos of their
Own which they found It hard to leave,
but also because Ibcy wore enabled
to make inoro money, and money
which did not' come out or the phi nl a
