LAND POLICY QUERIES.
r -Jbst what has canst il an appar
ently Inspired artlclo to como from
ihe capltol about withholding .tho
correspondence In the so-called Ka
paa land transaction, the Hullo-
, 1 1 n Is unable to guess. ,
It is and always has been n mys
tery why tho dovcriior has refused
every .request made to him by this
paper for the correspondence with
Col. Spalding or his representative
regarding tho so-called Kapaa land
denls. And tho mystery does not
become any less now .that the mat
ter has been brought out once morn
by tho paper controlled by tho at
tornoy for tho MaUco Sugar Com
pany Interests. .
Tho real point at Issue Is that' a
splendid tract of very desirable pub
lic land Is being handled by the pub
lie officers of this Territory, and It
would appear reasonable, that the
public should bo .given access to all
the letters that havo been written.
That seems very reasonable.
In addition to tho public lands to
bo disposed of, thero are In the same
section some of the most valuable
water privileges In the Territory.
It ,1s fitting nnd proper that tho
Territorial policy In dealing with
this land and tlioso water privileges
should; be clearly defined and out-
dined In advance, bo that the public
with all correspondence at hand
might discuss It untl fully under
stand ono feature of tho Territorial
lann policy that will ha such an nil
important factor In tho noxt olcr
tlon, In the Legislature, and posilbly
The lease of some three hundred
acres of the Olehenn lands, adjoin

Hon nt the capltol would state
whether this is to bo followed by
the sale of the lease of other parcels
In that' vicinity, and If, after tho
land sales are all disposed of, tho
question of tho water privileges Is
to be taken up.
This is very important. Water
controls tho land.
At present this paper knows of no
policy announced for hnmlllng tho
water that might bo developed to
supply the enne nnd other lands of
Olehenn, Kapaa and Anahola, No
one, under bucIi conditions, could be
expected to bid for the land leaso In
three hundred acre blocks except tho
Mnkcc Sugar Company, or somo ono
with enough money to start n new
and relatively small sugar planta
tion. Then, with these cano area leases
bought up, It Is reasonable to sup
pose that further development of the
water resources will bo necessary to
bring the cane land up to tho high
est state of 'efficiency. Presumably
this will call for n lease of tho wa
ter privileges of the public land In
the higher forest areas. Naturally
no one is likely to spend iiiucb mon
ey to develop water privileges for a
period of fifteen cars, and If water
Is leased for a longer period It would
appear that tho land would be prac
tically controlled for as long a time
ns tho water control runs.
Meanwhile, what becomes of tltn
small settler, for whom there Is cor
tain opportunity on tho splendid
tracts above that named as . cano
Is an attempt to be made to settle
people on those upper lands on ,the
basis of tho Knlnhco homesteads?
Aro homesteaders to find . homes
on the upper lands and employment
on a kindly plantation, and Is the
Mnkee Sugar Company the kindly
What Is known as the Kapaa
question Is n big one, nnd Its solu
tion will provo how well tho present
administration can succeed In giv
ing the people tlic benefit of ono of
the most attractive pieces of public
property In tho Territory. Thcio
Is laud, water ami a near-by ship
The proposition Is big enough nnd
Important enough to justify the
declaration of a deflnlto policy and
giving the people all tho correspond
ence ever written about tho subject

This is particularly true of tile Na

we were successful. The resolutions
