HAWAII'S VOTE FOR PRESIDENT.

Tills In n f.vlr iiuestlon for tho citi
zens' of Hawaii to consider at tills
tlmo. Within the next few months
they will exercise tho only prlvilego
thuy h.no In connection with nahi
iug tho Nation's chief executive.
Ono of the men to he name J by tho
Republican ntnl Democratic con ca
tions will be tho next 1'reslilent ot
tho t'nlted States. Hawaii's two or
six voles will count this jear, as tho
personnel- of tho candidates Is by
no mcniis n foregone conclusion u
What, then. Is the first qualifica
tion Hawaii's delegates to tho Na
tional party conventions should seek
In picking their (nndldato?
Personal Khowlcdgo ot and Inti
mate acquaintance with tho West
onil particularly tho Pacific Is of first
Importance to Hawaii.
Cltlzous of this part of tho coun
try Know that this qualification Is of
no less moment to tliu Nation.
To put It another way, Hawaii's
Mites should bo cast so as to put In
, tho Presidential chair n man who
kiipiueclatcs and knows from personal
. contact tho slio mid tho varied Intel-cats
ot thu nation over which ho
Tho Nntlon, no Ic83 than Hawaii
mid tho Wcslorn States, needs a
l'rc-sldciit who, besides possejslnfi tho
loiiilrud caliber of citizenship mid
lutilotlc purpose, understands tho
londltlons of tho country by a closer
observation than can bo obtained
through a study of geography or
talks with visitors.
Haw-all wants u man In the Whlto
Housu whoso horizon Is wider than
that very populous. Intelligent, and
wealthy section of tho country that
lhul.es Huston the eastern limit, New
lurk tho center, mid can't believe
thcro Is much ot anything worth
whllo west of tho Mississippi river.
Hawaii should prefer a Presiden
tial cundidato who docs not wait till
ho Is President beforo ho tours tho
Western States and tho Territories of
McKinley, under whoko ndmlnls
t Kit Ion Hawaii was annexed, and
ltoosovolt did not visit tho furthest
West till the llgurcd in tho Presi
dential llfo of tho country. Their
ndnilnlsti.itlnns nro not to bo classed
as failures so far as this p.itt ot tho
(ouutry Is concerned. Thero Is no
ilouht thnt It would have been bettor
lor them and for tho country had
they personal!) visited Hawaii, the
Philippines, Alaska, and Incidentally
touched at tho leading ports of tho
Tho II u 1 1 o 1 1 n believes that not
r. single man has been mentioned In
tho Cnndldato lists vho Is below
tho proper standard of Piesldcntlnl
timber. The Democrats aro tho more
dangerous, of course, but the count! y
has we.itheicd oven that calamity.
Consequently all things being
equal as regards the personal char
acter of tho men, ho Is the bettor
President who has rounded out his
education by 11 complete acquaint
unco with his own country.
l-'nr this reason Tnft appeals to
tho Republicans of tho West nnd
llryau to. tho Democrats.
Tuft Is genoially admitted to hnvo
u rather bad namo In Hawaii
because of his overwhelming frlend
ihtp for his wards, tho Philippines.
His freo-sugar doctrlnu Is the most
distasteful feature about tho man as
n fuvorlto for Hawaii. Hut when
ono stops to think, Tuft as President
ninnol bo n moro enthusiastic sup
poller or moro lgorous promoter ot
Philippine free trndo than President
Itoosevolt himself nnd wo all lovo
Thcro Is this to be. said ot Tuft: Ho
knows better than any other cnndl
dato for tho Presidency In either par
ly tho needs of America In tho Pa
(lllc. Ho has personally tackled tho
problems. Wlion questions of tho
Purine aro under discussion It Is not
necessary for him to draw upon his
Imagination to 1111 In the Impres
sions gained from tho loprcsonln
tlons of others.
Next to Tnft, Bryan 1111a tho quali
fication Hawaii must naturally Beck.

Tho bill reported ns amended seeks
to extend tho tlmo for which leases
may bo made to fifteen sears, instead

"In every such caso tho land, or any

A vciy 1 'o part of tho land In

To bring tno land to a stute of prof
itable cultivation Involves tho re
moval of 'rock and denso vegetation,
nnd requires an expenditure which
can not bo borne by tho averngo
Only a man or corporation with
Inrgo means can undertake the prop
nrntlon of the1 land for crops, or can
undertake to provide the very expen-
rive facilities for Irrigation which
pro required In many cases.
Owing to tho expenso nnd dlfllcul
ty attending tho preparation of tho
Mill and tho furnishing of these lrrl
gallon facilities, It Is Impossible In
nny case to get much return from
tho enterprise within tho term ot a
lease limited by the organic act to
live years, and In the caso of somo
ciops, such as rubber, nonreturn
whatovcr can ho hnd Insldo of ilvo
or six years. The result, of course,
Is that extension of agriculture has
been discouraged, and there Is llltlo
land upon which it would pay a
homesteader to settle.
When tho naturally fcrtllo solliof
tho Islands hns onco been cleared, a
comparatively small tract will alTord
a good return, hut n homesteader
can not bring about that condition.
It Is believed thnt If the term ot
tho lenso which tho Government may
make Is extended to llftcen )cars tho
public domain will ho rapidly Im
proved nnd brought to n condition
which will cncouingo settlement tin
Tho bill provides Hint any tlmo
during tho term of n lease, tho land
covered by the lenso or any part of

entry or public purposes, and the
lent reserved under thu lease bo re
duced In proportion to tho vnluc of
the part so withdrawn for homestead
cr public purposes. Under tho bill
each Icaso will contain n piovlslon
