of these hao not been successful ow

Crowded Out Dy Orientals.
The development of nn acrlctiltural
citizen i lass Intermediate between
the coiporntlons owning largo misar
liliintntlons nnd the landless migratory
laborer In fnwired b natural condi
tions ami by popular Kcutlmeut. The
chief obstacles arise from the oei
fcliuilowliiK Interests of the great su
par ltuliuitr nnd the resulting pres
ence of Oriental or other low grade
labor which teuds continually to
crowd out or tnko the place of the
citizen engaged In IndlWdunl enter

gradually rephiceil the small farmer
nnd the local trades-man and mi

Obstacles for Newcomers.
It must bo admitted that as matters
now stand the newcomer tlttdt ilifll
tulty In getting locnted. Ho Is wcl
coined and treated with hospltnlltj
and If he Is a laboring mail or mechan
ic may find woik but the demand for
such men Is not Inrgo. If he Is a
farmer he will be more than welcom
ed In sentiment, hut fiom a business
standpoint he will find It difficult to
learn of a piece of land which cm hi
secured on reasonable terms. It Is
probable that ho wll full In with sov

sienit their time In telling othets of
the illKnilvnnmgoi. This is u common
condition throughout nil countries
which hnut t cached u ccitnln Rtngo of
development nnd whole new men at
tempt to secure a foothold. In Initiat
ing n number of the reclamation pto
Jeets on the mainland which lmv
since pioteil successful, one of the
first obstacles eticmintercil lay in the
old Inhabitants who seemed to make
It u business of scon at tho efforts of
the new'eoiners mid lo nstitri) them
that the conditions were such that
they could nut make n living. The
fact that thev had failed was to them
proof that no one elfe could succeed.

in this fact. The MAYFLOWER that I a -idvertisinp; is the Mayflower Quart & Channel Mining Company
of Nevada City, California. The price of the stock is 25 cents per share, and you cajinot buy it for a cent
less in Honolulu, or anywhere else on earth. If you think you can, just try it, and if you succeed in get
ting a single share I wjjl confess that you are smart. Some people who have intelligence enough to read
everything else right, except a stock quotation, have noticed a certain Mayflower stock quoted on the San
Francisco Stock Exchange for 9 cents, more or less. And without looking to see that this "Mayflower" is
located in Nevada State, over a thousand miles from our mine in Nevada County, California, they have
joined the crowd of knockers and told people not to buy Mayflower of me at 25 cents, when it could be
bought for 0 to 10 cents in San Francisco. If some of these smart kno:kers will just get busy and buy some-,
of this stock and bring it to my oflloe, I will sell it for them and double their money. That is, if they bring
me the genuine thing and not the counterfeit. On the other hand, it behooves you people who think that I
am presenting to you a square proposition, to get busy and take on a block of the genuine "Mayflower" at
once,. BUY MAYFLOWER STOCK. BUY if NOW! "A rose by any other name would smell as sweet," but
please remember that another Mine with the name "Mayflower" tacked on to it will not bring as much
money as my Mine. When my Mayflower is listed on the Stock Exchange it will be for just one dollar, one
silver plunk per share. Then you will feel like going out behind the barn and kicking yourself beoause you
did not load up with some at 25 cents per share. It's just like finding money. You don't believe it, do you?
Well, please drop into my office this week and show me where I am wrong, or let me prove to you that I am
right. My latch-string is out. You arc welcome. Come in and see me. Get busy, BUY MAYFLOWER
STOCK. BUY IT NOW.

tesults come slowly
THE GREAT OBSTACLES.
The chief obstacles In more rapid
tubillvlslon of lands nnd settlement of
the Islands lie, Urst. In the prevailing
Ignorance concerning the country nnd
its possll lllllcs: second, In the pres
ent character of the land ownership;
third. In the presence of n great body
of Orientals, fourth. In transportation
problems, and llfth In the absence of
local or agricultural hanks.
1st. Although the Islands have
been part of the (lulled States for
moie than ten ycar. It Is probnblo
that iclatlvely few persons on tho
main land seeking new homes or larg
er opportunities, me nware of the nt-
Iumuii-v iiknil'iullli rtuIIJbu, uiftT

tractions nfforded by the climate nnd
lertlle soli. This condition Is being (
renicitieu uy active cuoris m u icr
tltory nnd of various seml-ofllclal or
ganizations, such ns tlio Promotion
Committee, which Is circulating, lit
erature and calling attention to the
2nd. Tho chief dlmciilty met by a
prospective settler upon reaching the
Islands Is to find any piece of land
available for his use, It Is true that
tho Territorial government Is subdi
viding lands and offering these from
tlmo to tlmo, but most or Uie attrac
tive places nro Immediately taken by
men resident on tho Islands, some of
whom may already have a homo else
where. There Is practically no prlvnlo
land for cute, but there Is some offered
for lenso at what appear to bo very
high prices. ,
3rd. Tho presence of tho Oriental
laborer, forming the great mass of
population, produces an artificial con
dition of social and business life not
conductlvo to settlement by whites.
In the arid states of the mainland
where men tnko up land and make It
vnlitnhlo by their own labor, every
man Is on the same soclnl piano Willi
his neighbor nnd Viet with him In phy
bleat ns well as mental energies ex
pended In dnlly labor. In tho Island,
however, where practically nit tho
physical labor Is performed by Orient
als tho tendency Is for the white set
tlor to endeavor to hitvc his work dono
by Orientals he tries to securo a
larger piece of land than ho could
ciiltlvnto himself nnd to work It by
cheap labor rather than take tho email
area and Intelligently till It by his per
sonal efforts. It Is not that tho cli
matic conditions aro unfavorable to
physical exertion, but largely because
it Is not customary for the white man
to do work which can ho performed
Another unfavorable condition grow
ing out of tho prosecco of tho Orient
als is that they are willing to pay
largo rent for a pleca of land Instead
of trying to own It nnd are content
with relatively small earnings. Tho
white man cannot compete "with them
In their own lines. Ills standard of
living Is so different that although ho
muy postcss superior intelligence ho
cannot profitably utilize tho ground to
tho same degree as his Oriental neigh
4th. The problem of transportation
Is one which Is ever present In a gtow.
tug community. The present facilities
of communication between the Islands
nro In their way excellent nnd nro con
btantly Improving. These nro also on
some of tho Islands the beginning of
railroads more or less cnclicllng them
and bringing tho products to con
venient ports. There aro only three
of those, however, where steamers can
lie tiLn dock, namely, at Honolulu, on
Onhti, at llllo on Hawaii and at Ka
huliil on Maul, At nil other ports on
the threo Islands named and at all
points on the other Islands tho prod
ucts must bo. lightered usually In
small boats, resulting In considerable
cxpenso and some uncertainty and
danger In transfer.
There aro on most of the Islands ex
cellent wagon roads nnd others pro
jected Co reach the productive land.
These roads originally built by the
Provisional Government nnd contin
ued by tho Territory, nro now In the
hands of county officials. Sumo arc
well maintained, on others tho funds
have not been effectively expended.
Tho cost of transporting products,
therefore, to tho main lines of trade Is
frequently high, hut with Increase) of
production It Is proper to expect that
the facilities will he Improved nnd tho
cost notably lowered
0th. There aro practically no banks
or Institutions advancing money to
farmers. The suga" Industry Is fin
nnccil by n few largo ngcncles who
have little or no Interest outside of
this particular line. Tho fruit raiser
or packci or tho small farmer docs
not have tho facilities of obtaining
money possessed In most agricul
tural communities on tho main land.
The Japancso have already appreciat
ed this fuct and by while nsslstanco
nre starting a hank to help their fel
low countrymen flnanco sugar plant
ing contracts, and similar enterprises.
J. Lennox, who has been stoio
manager at Mclirydo Sugar Co.'s
store, Klecle, for the last six years,
hns tendered his resignation to tnko
effect March 31 next. Mr. Lennox
'will take up his home In llllo and
ho connected with Turner & Co. Ho
will be succeeded here by Mr. Elliott
from Hawaii. The Oaden Island
wishes both Mr. Lennox and Mr. Kl
Ilot success In their chnnges.
