LITTLE LAND LEAGHJE.FARMS.
Hawaii la not the first section ot
tho country to take up the Idea that
n man can make a comfortable home
on n u aero or two of land.
Tho Christian Sclciito Monitor
rails attention to the "Little Laud
League" that was organized with tho
purpose of getting small homos for
tlio people and to which organization
such men as J. I'lerpont Morgan,
Hamlin (i.irlniid, Hooker T. Washing
ton, Albert Shaw, and lloltnu Hall
lent their names, lutluenc-e, and
Fomcwhat of llnanclnl assistance. Tho
Monitor fears tluit the work Is droop

quiet Is being occupied with the pre

thnti&ht'-nnd a tine purpose. It Is
based primarily on the contention
that a family ot three can be main
tained on n farm of two acres, and
In sections of tho country whero tho

iloued. Thoso who Investigated tho
matter before tho movement was or

HAWAII AND MR. TAFT.
Mr. Tnft Is known us the "peace
maker" In Washington;"
What Is his position rcgnidlng tho
Territory or Hawaii?
One of tho curiosities of the pres
ent situation In this Territory Is tho
largo amount ot doubt that exists
concerning the attltuda ot the Presi
dent and tho heads ot Federal de
partments toward this Territory.
Possibly no one need worry and
possibly It makes no dlffcrcnco with
the progress of tho Territory whether
Mr. Taft Is In sympathy with Ihe
policies over which his predecessor
enthused or not. No doubt it will
nil work out In time, hut there are
tome things regarding which tho nt'
tltudc ot tho Administration should
be learned as boon as possible.
Within the chnrmed circle of the
i.oct, tho (list tiling wanted to
now concerning .ur. i
,''. ,,', ,
: now concerning Mr. Tnft Is, wheth-
mcu to office
.a Hawaii whom tho elect propose.
Lot the elect settle this subject.
There Is much of moment outside the
Jobs, although It Is hard for the elect
to undci stand this if they nro not
In possession of tho jobs.
Mr. Tuft's position on tho tariff
and Btig.ir Is pretty well understood,
If the dispatches from Washington
state tho truth, and wo think they
do. The sugar tariff will remain nt
tho present rate, the only change be
ing tho admission of the 300,000
tons annually from the Philippines.
This Is entirely satisfactory to Ha
Juit nt the present moment there
Is nothing of more Importance to the
future of this Tenitory than Hie at
titude of the Administration on Eu
The assumption Is that Mr T.ift Is
as enthusiastic mer Kuropean Immi
gration as wiib Mr. Roosevelt. The
ussumptlon Is that Mr. Sargent's suc
cessor knows nil about- the situation
hero and will do all that Mr. Sar
gent would ilo.
Hut how much do the officials nnd
large Interests of the Territory know
of the opinions nnd purposes of theso
Have any steps been taken to learn
the exact situation?
Is there anyone In tho Cabinet to
tako up tho cnuso of Hawaii with
tho nggresvlvo entlraslasnv sny, of
And It there Is hot, what steps If
uny have been taken to enlist tho
personnl Intel est of tho now Cabinet'
officers In securing exact and first
hand Information ot the situation In
the Islands? i
Aro tho people of Hawaii being si
lenced Into n passlvo position by as
suming that Piesldent Tnft Is "all
wrapped up" In tho Philippines anil
therefore does not caro for Hawaii?
Have tho reports of President
Taft's one-tlmo antagonism for Ml".
F. M.MIntch made our people uncon
sciously tako u defensive position,
nnd, Instead ot asking iiucsttous In
Washington, wnlt fur someone theio
to throw .a brickbat?
Whother the- people hero aro nfrnld
of Mr. Taft and his advisers or aro
simply asleep, there Is not tho Blight
est doubt that t Is about tlmo for U
move to bo imulo to got nt tho fuels!.
To leain, for Instance, whether In
sosklng the Immigrants under thb
new Territorial law, tho Territory Is
mfo to piocccd under the rulings ot
tho former Administration.
This Territory Is so subjoct to tho
Hxccutlvo opinions nnd sometimes ot
Executive whims that It Is qrto nec
essary to know tho opinions mid the
whims hcfoio proceeding.

It will be noticed that President
Taft Is making many ihuii';os In tlio
diplomatic scrvlre of the roimti.y Ow
ing to his rloso connection with tho

dent is In a position to know who will

HARMOtY DINNER THAT
MaY GET'SOM RESULTS
Democrats Making Friends Hard
To Reach President But He
Is Very Cordial Our
WASHINGTON, D. C, April 1.
President Taft's nttompts to keep all
tho official folks around Washington
on amicable terms are becoming tho
topic of tho city nnd ot the country.
Lately they havo been reviving hla
old-time title of "Sccrctnry of Peace."
Ho has been giving n dinner nt which
warring political notables were bid
den to break bread around tho samo
festive board. He has been making
up to Senators of, all parties and
Licuuup, uuiou iu iiicNiiun
of till factions nnd parties. Hn has
made tho members of tho old Ananias
Club feel ut homo when they came
around tho- Whlto House offices. Ho
hns been making n real chum of tho'
Vlco President a very unusual thing
for n President to do; and he has
been getting on Bwlmmlpgly with
tho members of his Cabinet . Peace
nnd harmony nro everywhere.
Some say the harmony dinner nt
the Whlto Houso tho other evening
did not avail anything, that Floor
Leader Payne nnd Representative
0ti8slo" Gardner of Massachusetts,
tho latter tho leader of tho Republi
can insurgents, shook hands only In
n most formal wny ns they cntcicil
the President's presenco ns fellow-
guests. Sumo say as much of Repre-
i-ontntivo Chnmp Clnrk, tho mlnoilly
leader, and tho leader of the Demo
cratic Insurgents, Representative
John Joseph Fitzgerald, of Brooklyn.
Hut then, there Is no doubt those
gentlemen nil felt better hocauso tho
President hnd Invited them nnd tholr
wives around to tbe first of tho for
mal White House banquets. It will
bo easier now for them one of theso
dnys to ngreo to lot bygones bo by-

nnd Vice Presidents In tho days past

many such Institutes. President
Roosevelt, ot course, never had but

nnd It Is a matter Of common knowl
edge In Washington tlpit President
Roosevelt did not like Vlco President
Fairbanks nnd nllowed no opportuni

banks a good, stiff dig. President
McKinley used to bo real friendly
with Vlco President Hobnrt and folks
here nro recalling that ns a parallel
between tho friendly relations ot
Piesldent Tnft and Vlco President
Sherman. It Is well known that
President Cleveland hnd llttlo uso for
Vlco President Stevenson. Hnrrlson
and Morton used to drlvo their horses
together pretty well, but Mr. Hnril
son was not very coraMal In nny of
his official relations. His great worth
as a President, however, has como to

many think they seo that President

haps, but It Is very noticeable thai
tlio era of good-will which has been
growing tins brought a great many
people thcro whir hnd not been going
theretofore. A great many visitors
of prominence used to come to Wash
ington nnd depart therefrom, with
out going near tho White House;
now nearly nil of them find time to
go up tho Avenue nnd nt least call In
to pay their respects. The difficulty
In seeing Mr, Tnft is duo solely to
tho pressure upon his Unit. Once ono
gets within, he Is sure of a cordial
Tho Democrats swarm the ante
room almost dally. They have er
rands there and are mirtlo to feel that
Mr. Taft is tho President of nil par
ties. And much as they may declaim
politically against the Administra
tion thero Is n very kindly feeling
among tho Democrats of Senato and
House for President Taft. That Is a
very notable evidence of the era of
peaco which tho President is personi
fying In his administration.
Ho i has gotten upon especially
friendly terms with tho Judiciary In
nnd about Washington. Tho Jus
tice of the-. Supreme Court, tho
judges of tho District ot Columbia
....... .,,, ,i. imle, , tho Court of
Clnlms "havo nearly all been around
to the White Houso offices to call up
on tho new president, in former
tjmes quite a number ot these Judges
wefo rtt outs for one cause or nnother
with the Kxccutlve. President Tnft
used to bo a Untied States Circuit
Judge himself nnd know something
of the w'ay Judges are accustomed to
looking nt affairs. Ho tells his best
stories when tho brethren ot tho
bcrtth come to see him.
The members of tho new Cabinet
are growing In fuvor In Washington
even ns the now President Is grow
ing in favor. They aro nil' develop
ing like big, brainy men nnd Wash
ington Is Inferring that tho now
President Is to provo himself a good
Judgo of his fellow citizens. Thcro
Is n great difference In Presidents In
thnt regard. The town Is talking
much about the big things that Knox
nnd Wlckershtvm nnd Meyer and
Dickinson and MncVeagh aro doing.
They nro the kind of Coblnot officers
who "tnko" with tho discriminating
Washington public and largo things
nro expected of them as the Admin
istration progresses. Nowhere else
In the country Is so llttlo attention
paid to mere office ns In Washington,
but probably nowhere else In tho
country' Is thero so much real appre
ciation of official greatness and ot tho
