WHERE EUROPEAN-IMMIGRANT HOMESTEADERS ARE MAKING GOOD

" n trip through the Knlaheo
homesteads ot Knual.
Thcso homesteads on the upper l
lands ot a public area recently under
lease to the McUrydo sugar planta
tion represent the practical working
cut ot the land-settlement policy In
which tho actual tiller of the soil fig
ures ns an honest factor. There Is
no largo tract of land "settled" by
persons who live on It long enough
tn "prove up" and then hlro others
to do tho work.
' I'lvo acres and a house furnish the
nucleus of the Kalaheo homestead.
Tno father, sons and sometimes the
dnughtes work on tho adjoining mi
ca r plantations. The five-acre home
furnishes vegetables for the house
hold and pineapples for tho cannery.
' Tho scheme Is especially attractive to
the European Immigrant who comes
to Hawnll to work, rather than to get
control of n lot of land and pcrhnps

When the survoy was completed
there were 118 homestead plots
available. Theso wcro opened V up
nbout a year nnd a halt ago. The
district now has fifty-one houses on
It and seventy of the plots aro taken.
llcing on high land the houses can
be seen from qulto a'dlstanco on tho
road, and the most casual observer Is
Impressed with tho fact that some
thing Is being done.

Water In the mountains nnd laid tho
plpo to supply tho homesteader with
a wator tap In the front yard. Tho
first part of this water system cost
from 17.000 to $8,000. The men

homesteader S2G. a ton for the pine

They aro doing nil 'this to bo better

from the excellent opportunities pre-
rcntcd to tho homesteader, who sat-
Isfiles his selfish Instinct by grasping
nil these good things by the nld ot
which ho may establish for himself
an independent home.
The proposition which tho men ot
money make to the homesteader at
Kalaheo Is something like this:
You take the flve-acro homo
Btead which tho Government will
turn over to you nt $B. nn ncro.
Wo will put up your house, fence

you S2G. per ton. If you work on
the plantation we will supply you
with" firewood, As security for our
expenditures you give us d mort

transaction must bo subject to
