PUBLICITY AND LANDS.
Publicity Is tho keynote of the
only resolution that haB thus far
come out of the Hoard of Public
Lands ' Just organized under tho
.nmendniciit of the Organic Act.
This Is a mighty good beginning;
Secrecy linn, been the. source" 'of
ninc-lonthu of the suspicion that nils
existed In tho handling, of the pub,

. s ut tho bottom of tho suspicion
that exists in connection with the
Knpaa' lands to which much atten
tion was devoted at tho first meet
ing af'flto board, without nnythlng
cIeo very 'definite being developed.
Although the Knpa deal has been
on thd! boards for moro than five
years, tho fact remains that the
t"moral obligation of thoTerfltqry,"
,to why:h Land Commissioner Mar
Bton Campbell referred, Is very much
tangled up with the memory that tho
llnal negotiations In connection with
thoso Kapaa lands nnd leases were
carried. on almost ns quietly as the
Intlmatp affalrg of a secret society,
and Instead of .striving to get public
.opinion on what was beng done by
Announcing what was Intended, the
officers -of the Territory kept, every
thing as quiet as possible until the
whole deal was framed up previous
to tho passago of the umendmeut to
the Organic Act.
No better endorsement of the
Jl u 1 1 e't I n'p r.epcatcd demands for
tho facts of tho negotiations In con
nection with, tho Kapaa land deals
and other deals could possibly be
secured than this first resolution
adopted by tho new board that must
pass upon all transactions having lo

public protest has been lodged
against tho action taken, it Is lnv
possible to discuss the merits or de
merits of what tho board hag done
In this particular.
So far as the board lias aided In
guaranteeing liquors dispensed to
the people, under the pure, food law,
In a manner that will furnish eac.i
purchaser with a clear statement of
what he Is buying, Its efforts will
most certainly gain favor.
On the other principal Item pre
sented by the board the removal of
screens In saloons tho. II u 1 1 e 1 1 n

as observation lias proved in cities
of tho mainland that tho regulation
Is a good ono. AVc do not, believe,
however, that tho regulation Should
ho shaped In such a manner as to
force a change. In tho location of sa

removal o jicr.cens and clearing the

now stand would carry outjho spirit
of the plan and accomplish the de

not Involvo extraordinary nnd bur
densome expenditures upon those
conducting the places of sale.

WOOLLEYISM AND OUR OWN
The last stand of tho liquor

this Is typical of Prohibition and
that Is one of the reasons wny an
