Speaking of land matters, tho defi

immedl itu disposition of the much

Tho various lands have been ap
pralred nnd the propositions made,
Tho people want action, and Knpaa
lands for homesteaders, while satis
Jjing the land-hunger, will populate
one of tho most faored nreas of land

It homesteaders on these lands can
not obtain fatorable cane-plantlng

160 ACRES FOR "EVERYBODY."
Mr. Emmeluth makes such a happy
presentation of tho position ot the lo
cal Democracy on the land question
that he almost convinces one thai
tli'o party has been misunderstood.
Either that or It is so closely In sym
pathy with tho hopes and ambitions
of tho llepubilcans that there is real
ly no cause for difference.
We all want the spirit of American
Institutions to prevail in the Govern
ment of the Territory nnd the Admin
istration of tho Territory ot Hawaii,
nnd if tho Democrats, Instead of fol
lowing their usual plan ot hours for
deploring and not one minute for ac

credit that their acts, suited to their
Tho gist ot Mr. Emnieluth's state
ment is that tho Democrats are en
tirely honest and are not striving to
help out tho land-grabber and the
We are pleabed to havo this assur
nnco nnd we hopo that history will
liiovo It to bo entirely correct.
When ho winds up, lion ever, with
tho wily twist that the spirit of
American land laws in Hawaii
' means ono hundred and sixty acres
of land for everybody," ho brings In
ono ot the features of the campaign
that immediately casts a doubt on the
purity of purpose ot such leadership.
If ''one hundred and sixty acres for
everybody" epitomizes the Democratic
opinion of the spirit of American land
laws In Hawaii, It appears that the
patriots are not above a cry good
Miaro of misrepresentation in their
campaign of alternately deploring
what is, and haggling over the worlc
done by the men on the job.
Tho Democratic leaders know ;ery
well that neither their party In the
Tcirltory nor In the United States
Congress would so amend the Hawaii
land laws us to "give ono hundred
nnd sixty acres to everybody" j yet It
would seem from Drother Emmeluth's
letter that tho campaigners are eager
to put this phraso before the
idlers as their definition ot what the
spirit of American land laws In Ha
waii means. That Is why the 11 u 1 -1

presented to him a personal Inter

for submission by the committee, of n
concicto statement ot tho remedies
that could he applied. This latter was
presented to him on Friday, June 2G,
In the shape of a memorial which
was published In full In your Issue
of Juno 27th and which closed Its ref
erence to these, matters by urging:
'1. Tho Immediate suspension of
thnt portion of the Hawaiian land law
authorizing cither sale or exchango ot
"2. That the public lands granted
by way of homestead shall remain
subject to tho homestead quality.
3. That public agricultural lands,
ijs they can only be homesteadod or
leased by citizens, shall continue for
tho solo beneficial use ot cltlzon, nnd
be tillable onlj by citizens (or thoo
who havo declared their intontlon to
' Tho extension ot the Federal
homestead law hero (with such
amendments ns Congress shall mnke)
believing with Governor Frcnr that
nothing we can get can bo worse than
what wo have, and also believing
thcro Is greater probability ot wiso
amendment of the Federal homestead
laws than of our local laws (always
bearing in mind that our local land
laws cannot bo amended except by ac
tion of Congress).
"Wo have based these suggestions
as we believe on tho views nnd prin
ciples expressed by ourself In our
address nt tho conferenco of Govern
ors lately held In Washington as
quoted In the June number ot "For
estry nnd Irrigation," pago 341, be
lieving, ns no doubt sou do, that the
public lands arc a great "resource
owned by the people at largo . . .
and It Is for them to determine
whether the rcsourco shall bo used
for tho benefit of all, or bo turned
over . , . for the benent of who
ever may happen first to get a fool-
lly tho proposals made In theso re
citals tho Democratic Party of this
Territory believes it holds out n ra
tional, consistent, effectivo plan for
settlement of our public lands by
bona fide homesteaders, tho removal
of those lands from tho realms ot
speculation (since the" fmrchase of
same would qf necessity mean tho oc
cupation thereof) and (''incidentally
providing n. solution of our labor
problem on ryvosif leaiftrictlon with
or sacrlllc by established industries.
In short wo claim to present tp the
voters of this Territory!! nn honest,
comprehensive tmeans fort developing

Your (statement that reference to
"American Land Laws" "carries the
crowd", If interpreted into meaning
thnt the people of the Territory havo
finally risen to tho occasion and will
demand equality with their fellow
citizens on tho mainland, then tho
"cry" Is effective In Its best sense.
It distribution ot literature of the
kind herein quoted from, bearing on
tho subject Is "nursing the hopes of
speculators and misleading Ignorant
people," then we pleud guilty to the
charge made by jou.
If securing local application of
THE SPIRIT of the American land
lows means 100 acres for overybody,
then wo further plead guilty.
If, as we bclievo, you aro honest In
jour criticism, wo submit that tho
facts as presented fit every condition
that Is to be created in nny change of
our lund laws, and tho party is on-
titled to credit for patriotism and un
selfishness In presenting the same.
