BATTLESHIPS IN THE PACIFIC.
Tho movement to secure a largo
nnc permanent naval fleet for the
waters of tho I'aclllc Is thoroughly
American, particularly In the Inter
' cstg!.of peace, and one that should
anneal to tho patriotism and common
EfA sense of every American citizen.
Tho complaint that Is raided
ngalnst tho great expenditures for
naval protection call to mind the fa
ther who whines because his son Is
growing and his clothes arc there
fore more expensive.
ll would bo interesting to know
how1 theso people who shout about
tho growing wealth and Importance
y. of tho country expect to protect till?
splendid commonwealth. We doubt
that thoy have any plan. Their Ideal
is that trade should Increase and the
art's of pcaco alono occupy tho minds
of jjie civilized world. This is a
splendid Ideal, but It is criminal fol
ly Jo neglect or underestimate tho
necessity of permanent maintenance
of tin armed forco that will threaten
onljr tho'nutlou that might presume
to break in upon tho peaceful prog
ress of tho world.
' Somo claim that America's present
naval force Is largo enough. It Is
secqijd to tho greatest naval power
of tho world, and can bo sent from
onuj ocean to another as clicurn
stauces may require.
Tills view would bo harmless If
j1' other, nations of tho world would be
good onough to stand still, allow
America to hold second place without
n struggle and be so kind, In
caso a car should arise, as to arrange
for the naval battle to take place as
America wishes and at a time that
best' suits our convenience.
It seems Impossible that any per
son of mature years, who has watched
'tho progress of tho world during his
. Ilfotlmo and read history for n few
, i years back, can honestly delicto that
there Is national danger involved in
a na,vy of sufficient size to present an
overwhelming forco ready, for lmrne
(Half nctlon, should friends, of either

The plan for a navy In keeping
with the vaIuedrnf6uniUj)roperty
our country has to protect Is tho
basis of the mnguidceiitly patriotic
policy of the National Admlnlstru
Hon at the present time.

Editor Evening I) ill lot In:
Your excellent suggestion In yester
days Ilulletlii Is noted. Hawaii,
this outpost of America, In the Pa
clfle, should keep ahead. It would
ue a fine thing If Hawaii could lead
the United Stales In various reform
movements. Hut as you remark, wr
must begin on tho Attorney Oenernl,
Ilonaparte, and before noting jour
suggestion, a reply had been written
to him, giving some lows that do not
perhaps coincide with his own. It
cannot hurt him, and will certainly clu
no harm. As to his letter, It was
shown to four or five able lawyers In
Honolulu, and I expressed to them
surprise at the view that Federal law
nhoiild not apply to local cat-es, they
went fuither and expressed unitize
inent. The Attorney Oenoral states: "The
Dcbartmcnt Is of tho opinion that the
'Edmunds Act' ought not to be used
In connection with a matter of purely
local concern.' Tho l'ederal law
known as tho "Edmunds Act," which
applies to Terrltorlos, forbids fornica
tion and adultery, with heavy lines, oi
Imprisonment or both, for such of
fences. All such cases must bo first
of local concern, if tho law Is not to
apply to local cases, for all cases
must be local somewhere, It practical
ly makes tho "Edmunds Act" of no
effect, or places tho enforcement or
non-enforcement ot tho law at tho
pleasure of tho local ofllclals. That
tho Department of Justice at Wash
ington will support a dellnlte stand
igulnst the enforcement of United
States laws, conn h as a shock to
winie American cltlzenr. Especially
so when the Department Is full) In
formed that a lcproHcntatltc body of
citizens, representing all religious de
nominations, have signed n written
request, that the laws bo enforced.
Some of the peoplo In cortaln local
ities may prefer that tho Federal laws
be not enforced. Hut shall tho repre
sentative of tho United States Gov
ernment, who has sworn to enforce
the law, yield to tho deslio of some.
and allow tho laws to be openly brok
en? Fortunately for Honolulu, the
local authorities have at lust taken
tho matter up, and tho local laws
igalnst tho evil ute to bo eufoteed.

the hu.ver litis to have (If teen per cent
under cultivation and an additional
fifteen per cent has to be cleared and
planted each year until at the end or
the sixth seventy-nvo per rent of the
total area Is propeily cultivated
This condition will work bciutlfullv
where former plantation leases are
oiTei'd for salo ond tho land ilioiough
l cleared by tho former oceup.ini
Hut how about other paits ol tin- conn
try. Land such ns that of Oku. Kal
vvlkl. Kallmann, etc. Is heavllv wooded
and It has In the past cost settlers nil
the way from sixty to thtee hundred
dollars an ncro to clear It Let tin
take a fifty acres Bale In smb. a coun

ibllgntlou for tho piirchasci to clear
and plant seven nntl inn h ilf acres
per year tit an average cost of su.v
one hundred dollars per ncie and can
vas for n bujer. Tho Idea Is not one
to attract tho Bottler we absolutely
need In this country, but one that
will Incline him to look else where for
a location. It will tnke a good, long
puise, of n size that not one In a thou
sand of thoso who have t-eltled the
mainland states' have commanded, to
pay for tho clearing of such land, es
tablishing a homo nnd pnv for living
expenses for himself nnd family until
such time as his purchase shrill bring
him leturns large enough for IiIb sup
The residence clause, which linn
caused many a bona fide s-ttler his
homo, has been strengMieiied and
made more unicnsonable than, ever
It stipulates thftt the purchaser shall
reside upon tho land at least three
and one-half years out of the (list six.
and that on period less than six
months' continuous residence shall be
counted us part of these 3 '4 years
Here again Is a condition that will
run up against tho finances of the
o,verago settler. Most of the crops
adnptablo to this country take quite
a long period beforo they bring re
turns, coffee, rubber, sisal etc. will
not show entihw on the tight side of
the ledger untll the six year period Is
over, altho such quick crops as cine,
pineapples and bananas may bring In
money nt the end of eighteen months.
In tho early part of tho game, after
tho crops are well planted the piln
clpal work of theso crops consists In
weeding, n Job that In ninny Instan
ces could bo attended to by tho sett
ler's family vvhllo ho might help out
his flnnnces by work on ntlshboilng
plantations. Now, this condition Is
worse than the ono Included In the
old ilght-of-puithasu lcat.es, In which
the residence clauo stipulated a two
year's maintenance of a home on the
premises. Tho settler cannot do a
week'n work away fiom his lot under
penalty of breaking up his "continue
sea residence" nnd thereby extend his
time of bondage. If tho Intent of the
clauso Is to stop tho prnctlca now in
voguo among tho plantations of hav
ing some of their employees buy de
sirable land to be turned, over when
tho title to It is obtained, It will be
found to work the other way. Men
supported by ticli corporations will
watt a long time and with no pilva
tlons nt all for a patent while a man
with a small capital to Invest will tuko
another think beforo ho undertakes to
comply with such terms.
Conditions such ns theso two may
not bo Intended ns obstacles to Intend
ing settlers, but they certainly are,
Just as they are levors for corpora
tions who desire to pry open tho cask
that holds our land treasures.
