trees In particular, and he was
pained to sco the Chinese banyan on
tho ground. He stopped his ma
chtiio and Inquired of tho park luna
ns to who had given the orders for
tho cutting. The luna referred tho
Superintendent uf Public Works to
Supervisor Qulnn. Up to tho noon
hour tho Interview had not occurred.
"I am acting as a. citizen In this
matter," said Mr. Campbell. "It
was a beautiful tree and there was
not the slightest reason for Its de
struction, It was a shame, and I
mean to And out about It."

"This Territory Is accustomed to
agricultural success, which Is the
tsamo thing as saying that you havo
linil sugar prosperity. Therefore,
when I Bay that ou lack knowledge
concerning water supplies, jou may
ho Justified In pointing to your su
gar crop returns nnd announcing
that you are getting along pretty
well without such knowledge. So
j on are, but can you tell mo how
much sugar faituro you havo had be
cause of jour lack of that knowl
edge? How many acres have been
nbandoncd because ot lack ot wa
ter? How many more acres would
bo planted If water were available?
How much greater would have been
jour annual crops had all the lands
n sulnclcnt water supply? You
cannot tell; the Planters' Associa
tion does not know; no one knows.
Of this I urn sure, because this ques
tion Is ono o tho first that I asked
when 1 came to tho Territory. The
statistician of tho Planters' Associa
tion informed me that no attempt
had ever been mado to gather such
information. Tho fact Illustrates
nnn peculiarity that 1 havo noted re
peatedly during my visit lieio. It Is
that tho pcoplo here aro so accus
, turned to success that they fall to
jiipprcelato tho vnluo ot failure and
ot negative results. So it Is that no
iiiiu knows what tho Bugar failure
has licon In Hawaii, or at least that
portion of it duq to Ignorance con
turnlng water resources, Yit, In
traveling over tho Territory, signifi
cant cases occasionally appear, 1
know, for example, a place, where
ono million dollars was expended In
a sugur plantation before thoy found

year, becuuso of lack of water, was
8,000 tons of sugar, and teh pros
pective shortage for this year will
he 10,000 tons, I know anothor
plantation where last year's short'
igo w.is 3,000 tons. I have not Ma
iled all tho plantations. My Inquir

"I have Introduced my subject In
thl way because It was Important!
that your first Impressions of tho
wntcr resources Investigations now
being started should be those of a
straight-forward, rock-bottom, busi
ness transaction, worthy of your In-
tercst and support as business mcn.l
'Even, ima not the need for Infor
ro&tien concerning water supplies n.-l
Tcady been felt In tho Territory, the
future alono would render an In-,
vcstlgatlon essential. In tho de-l
velopment ot the agricultural Indus-1
try here, there has been a fairly
large amount ot elbow room. Only
now and then havo you clashed Into
dlsputo over water supplies. If ono
man has not had sufficient Water tor
his crops, the reason has not usually
been that some other man Is tapping
his so'urce of supply. Hut tho Ter
ritory Is growing. You all expect
It to Incrcaso manifold In' product
ivity. Every new field Imposes a
now demand on tho available water
ot tho Territory. Questions as to
the most beneficial use ot water will
wav acute. Information concerning
the capacity of sources ot supply
will bo worth a mflllonfold more
than tho cost ot procuring It. Tho
point Is, however, tint It takes time
to procure, this Information, and It
tho Territory Is caught without It
on the day that it becomes essential
to Industrial progress, then will the
pcoplo look back with regret on n
"The Invest Igatlon of water re
sources now. being organized will
consist of two brond divisions. First,
the measurement of river flow; sec
ond, the Investigation of under
ground water supplies. River flow
measurement means tho dally ob
servation ot the amount ot water
flowing In a stream for a period of
years sufficient to determlno tho
habits ot the stream and its capacity
for service. You know thnt a river
will flow sometimes high' and some
times low, but unless you havo mado
an Investigation, you havo no idea
how many acres It will Irrigate dur
ing low stages, or how great a vol
ume Is wasted Into tho sea during
Good Ditch Systems.
In this Territory you have some
unusually good 'ditch systems. I
have rarely seen better, but they do
not In any "nso uso their sources of
supply with maximum efficiency.
Sometimes they run short of water,
and some ot tho fields lying under
the ditch must go dry. Again, the
ditches are full and water Is run
ning to waste in1 floods. A flood Is
essentially a waste of water. In or
der to intelligently deal with such
a situation, It is necessary to know
how much water Is wasted In floods.
how much can be saved by storago
and how many more acres could be
Irrigated from bucIi storage Final
ly all tho facts must bo assembled to
determine If It is practicable to un
dertake conservation, and if so to
what extent. The significance of
tho. underground water Investiga
tions is equally great.
"Tho Investigation o'f water re-
sources here Involves consideration
of many Important public problems,
some of which 'are peculiar to this
Torrltory. For example, I hear on
every hand the desire expressed for
n great andcstable population that
may bo depended upon for labor,
production and defense. To this end
you have been trying to secure xa:
migration ot people that would 4s
slmllato and become a part ot tho
bod politic. A vory good plan, but
upon what aro you going to base
that citizenship? There Is no socio
logy prlnclplo more completely dem
onstrated than that which requirei
ownership of land In the making of
a citizen. Ilrtng out your social
remedies; thoy will fall, they will
all fall, until each man has his feet

by the stout hearts nf Americans
whoso humestcads stand out nil over

ritory or that which Is best suited
for homestead entry Is aro arid part.
In fact there is very llttlo agricul
tural land hero that would not be.
benefitted by Irrigation. Now, If
yo uaro going to dot this arid coun
try over with homesteads, which
jou MUST DO If you succeed In jour
ambition for a stable population,
you must know where tho water Is
coming from, that will support those,
Up to a very recent time, our
ngrloultural dcvoIopncnt has been

heard It said that.ilnwall carries all
Its eggs In one basket. After look
ing over the situation, I belicvo It
Incumhont on al devout citizens nf
the Territory to thank the Lord for
that ono basket. It Js a ptrong,
capable basket. Long may It wave.
Nevertheless, wc muBt all recognize
tho economic necessity of develop
ing other Industries that will act ns
a counter weight. In my opinion..
It has been proved that tho sugar
Industry Is a plantation industry,
ono thnt must be run on a largo
scale, and that it the homesteader
succeeds In cane planting ho docs
bo by renson of the altruism of tho
neighboring plantation. in other
words ho becomes a plantation ad

with his .chin out. Therefore In
homcstcndlng tills country thcro Is
furnished tho opportunity to build
up diversified agricultural Industry.
Hang on to sour sugar, encourngo
It, do 'your' jest tor It, becnus'S It has
carried you through many grlevnui
years. Even If wo nro so Inconvolv
hbly 'foolish ns to belicvo thnt tho
sugar industry should bo dethroned,
it ought to be apparent thnt this de
thronement should not occur until
soiiicthlng has been provided to tnka
Its "place. The best way to help
sugar is to fill your Territory up with
homesteaders who are producing
other things. There is no room for
conflict. Sugar lands aro sugar
lands. Thoy will prouco more vuP
ua In this commodity than In any'
thing olso. The homestead lands
nro not the sugnr lands, and you
will bo right in themaJorlty of
cases It you suspect tho motives ot
