produced from the lands of Hawaii.
The Federal Government has Inaug
urated a program of development
from which there Is no turning aside.
The "good times" Is Just around
the corner, according to the conserv

already here. Only an act of God

that the greatest legislative body of

We assume that the readiness ot
tho House to pass the Delegate's
.hipping bill for tho relief ot Hawaii
ji.ay be Intcrpictcd as a decision to
Mil the niall-sub.ldy bill. A, decent
logiird for America's future in tills
ocenn thould cause tho passago ot
the mall-subsidy bill and also tho
luspenilon of the coastwlsa laws so
far as'passongcrs between our Island
ports and tho mainland are concern-
oil. Hut this tccai3 too much to ex
pect. Tho Interior statesmen and
foii'len-iblp lobby are too strong.
To remove the penalty for tho
qrlmo of tuivollng on a steamor Hy
ing a foiolgu flag Is an act of com
mon Justice. A people marooned In
their own country prosent a ridicu
lous spectacle, in addition to tlio oth
er dUcouiforts ot such a condition.
Common Justice, for tho people of
Hawaii Is appreciated. It would ho
more gratifying If Congress could
eco Its way clear to deal similarly
with tho merchant murine ot the
United States of America.

Tho last edition of Mr. Jural G.
Smith's pamphlet, "Agriculture In Ha
waii," Just issued by tho Promotlun
Committee, which wo have sent for
lovicw to overy agricultural paper
published In tho United States and
Canada, is ccitaln to crcatu a greatly
Increased interest In the opportunities
offered by Hawaii for tips growing of
pineapples, bananas, mangoes, citrus
fruits, grapes, alligator pears, cocoa
nuts, ruhbet, tobacco, etc.
Now whnt Is tho best way to Infill
unco homo of these desirable home
builders to como to Hawaii? After
carefully considering the matter, 1
would recommend that a special com
mlttec bo nppolntcil to confer with
th'o Territorial Uoard of Immigration
In regard to tho matter. Tho plan I
would suggest Is to piovldo first a
fund of say live thousand ($5000.00)
dollars, and then to enter Into corres
pomloiico with Hon. James Wilson,
Secretary of Agriculture, who, I feel
ussuied, will bo In hearty sympathy
with the movement, asking him to re
quest each of tlio Statu Kurmcis' In
stitutes of Oregon, Kansas, Minneso
ta, Ohio, Massachusetts, Nebraska,
Iowa, Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin,
to select u practical, successliil farmer
to maku a trip to Hawaii for tho pur
pose ot Investigating opportunities In
agriculture at our expense. Tho ton
men so selected to meet at San Kran
clsro, at a given date, leaving for Ho
nolitlu by tho samo steamer and to bo
uccompnuled by two or thieu rcjio
scntutlvcs of tho Agricultural IHii.u
ment specialists In viticulture, horti
At least two niontliH should bo spent
In Hawaii by this party of Investiga
tion In order that the opportunities of
overy Island nnd every district may be
noted and studied, tho result of tho
Investigations to bo published In u
special bulletin by tho Agricultural
Department, which, I believe, would
gladly wolcomo tho opportunity of
placing beforo tho public tho conclu
sions of such a representative body
of men. Wo havo nothing to conceal
and everything to gain from such pub
licity. Our cnterprlso In arranging for such
a trip would attract general uttentlon
and tho published reports of tho con
clusions of the ten practical farmers,
men of standing and Intluer.co In their
respective communities, could not hut
piovo of distinct advantage and would
undoubtedly result In our receiving
visits In tlio near futuro from hun
dreds of moderately well-to-do people.
A smaller party of Investigation
would, of course, bo less expensive
and would accomplish much good but
would not servo to ndveitlso tho ad
vantages and attractions of HieWulI an
effectually as tho number 11 rut sug
gested. In fact, If tho funds wcro
available, I would rather Incrcaso tho
number of States directly represented
to fifteen or twenty rather than cut
down the number.
Many other Ideas In connection with
tho matter will suggest themselves to
you but I Mil not, nt this tlmo, at
tempt anything moio than presenting
tho plan, Imping that It may rcccivo
your careful consideration.
