llostnor. W. O. Smith, W. F. Dilling
ham, A. Hartley und .1. (1. Smith, sub
mltted their report to Uou'rnor Frear
sliorth before ho left for thu Coast.
This commission wns npioliited as a
result of tho meeting of tho Uoernors
In Washington In Mny last.
Tho report of tho Commission goes
Into tho work assigned to it lu full,
the following excerpts, how over, eo.
erlng the real work that was done
After speaking of tho fact that the
natural resources of Hawaii are water,
boll, und forests, tho Commission
speaks of each one as follows:
Waters For tho successful develop
ment of all these Industries water is
needed In larger or smalled quantities.
In many cases this necessitates a sup
ply artificially procured. There have
already been built, wholly by prhato
enterprise and nt private expetiko
amounting to oer $15,000,000, elahoi
uto irrigation s steins to supply water
for tho Itrlgatlon of the sugar planta
tions Hut as jet only a part of tho
water that could bo turned to account
Is utilized. In the harnessing of tho
streams to produco power much also
romiiliis to bo done.
Naturally the first stop In a moro
complete and rational ultlllzatlon of
this great source and producer of
wealth Is an accurate and oxhattstlvo
examination of tho water resources of
tho Territory. In the Judgment of this
Commission the need for such a sur
vey by competent water experts Is tho
most pressing necessity lu tho wit)
of conservation work, for on tho pos
sibility or bringing more water onto,
tho laud depends tho whole future de
velopment of tho Torrltory
Thero aro no navigable streams In
tho Territory of Hawaii. The value of
water centers In Its use for Irrigation
and power development.
Forests TJie primary value of tho
forests of Hawaii Is that they servo
as u protectlvo cover on tho steep,
short watersheds of tho streams need
ed for irrigation. This uso was vail)
recognized und has led to the setting
apart of forest reserves at first by
prlvnto owners und later, during the
last flvo years, nuclei tho dlroctlon of
the Turltorlal government. At the
present tlmo tho total area of existing
torest reserves Is 444,110 ucros, or
about nuc-teiith of the total arila of
tho Territory. Later It Is expected
considerably to Increase the area so

tion does not enter, the Hawaiian for

the application of water could unqiic-M

value. This class of laud Is now used
principally for cattle grazing. In the
aggregate it Includes many thousand
acres. It would appear that much of
It Is susceptible of reclamation for
some more Intensive form of ngricul-
turo. Here again the present need
is for a thorough and careful 'stud) li
experts. It bhould first bo ascertained
how much of this class of land can be
brought under Irrigation and second
for what purposes It Is best adapted
If an adequate water supply were once
assured. This Indicates that along
with a h)ilrographlc survey thero
should also be u soil survey und n s)R
tetnatlc classification of the land ac
cording to the uses to which it Is best
udapted. Such Investigations gave the
way for the Incoming of the man who

In addition to tho lands that can bo

In Hawaii largo tracts of wusto Und

of this class of land must slwajs re
main as vvasto land but jiortlons of It
are piobably susceptlblo of being
turned to useful account. A s)stem
atlc classification or all lands would
bo a long step In this direction.
As a result of tho study Uiat hns so
