HomesteadingToBe
Given Every Chance
Governor McCarthy Sees Hope For
Small Farmers In Hawaii Says
Plantations Are Helping Chit i
Exccutive'sVisitToMauiA Busy One
Governor Charles J. McCarthy, who
returned to Honolulu on Wednesday
night lifter .a week spent on Maui and
Molokai, carries back with him a
mass of Information which he expects
to find of value to him in the future,
according to his own statement short
ly before he left. The Governor visit
ed every section of this Island during
his trip except the liana district. He
had a personal view of practically
every piece of government land In the
county except some of the more in
accessable forest reserves, and has a
fair notion of its character.
With the Go-ernor on his trip were
Land Commissioner Rivenhurph, Ter
ritorial Forester C. S. Judd, Hydro
grapher Chas. S. Bailey, and a por
tion of the time Edgar Henrigues, of
the land commission.
Saw Molokai First
The party went to Molokai on Tues
day of last week by sampan, and spent
two days looking over the resources
of that Island. The Governor had bis
attention called to a stretch of beach
land near Kaunakakai which had been
suggested be cut up and opened as
homesteads. But he was not much
Impressed with the scheme.
"The land in question Is covered all
over with big bouiders, has no water,
and otherwise seems utterly unsuited
as a place for making a permanent
home," the Governor stated later.
"The only thing of value on it is a
heavy growth of algaraba, and I have
a strong suspicion that the only rea
son anyone wants that land is for the
wood that could be cut from it. But
that isn't homesteading, and to open
land on such a pretense would only
give real homesteading another black
eye."
To Give Homesteading Trial
Hawaii's new executive admits that
he did. not know a great deal about
homesteading when he took office, but
says he is learning a lot every day.
He will not say that homesteading
can be made a success in the Islands,
but he does impress his determina
tion to do his best for a few years
to make it so. The administration in
Washington is keen on Hawaii as a
place of homes for the man of small
means, and Governor McCarthy will
use the whole influence of both the
federal and the territorial administra
tions to giving it a thorough try-out.
"I saw some splendid examples of
homesteading success on Hawaii,"
said the Governor, who recently spent
two weeks looking into land matters
on the Big Island. "And I also saw
a good many that were anything but
promising.
"These homestead I have in mind
were on sugar lands for the most part.
One family, by hard work now has a
bank account of $3700 after only about
3 years. They are Hawaiians and are
growing cane for a plantation. But
they have done real work."
Plantations Helpful
According to Governor McCarthy
. the plantations are showing a sincere
desire to give the homestead idea a
thorough and fair chance. Whatever
may have been the attitude of the big
companies in the past, it is not in the
least antagonistic now, he finds. But
he is not pleased with the ability
thus far shown by the homesteaders

Kuhio And Link Hot
On Same Itinerary
Maui This Week Is Stumping Ground
For Both Parties Each Hold
tallies On Market Street Visited
Hana District First
The political storni-cenler of the
territory has been on Maui this week.
With bolh Link McCandless and Ku
hio on the Island at the same tim
there is plenty of entertainment for
the man with the ballot.
One of the interesting feature is
that Dr. Raymond, defeated in the
primaries for the democratic nomin
ation for delegate, took the platform
at the big demociatic rally on Market
street on Wednesday night and
preached the straight ticket doctrine
to his hearers. The democrats hav
ing selected Link Instead of himself
as their banner-bearer, was his argu
ment, it is now up to the democrats
to all get behind. McCandless and
boost him into office at the election
on November 5th. The Doctor partic
ularly boosted for Bi-n Lyons for
senator.
McCandless told the Maui voters
all about the quantity of potatoes he
is growing and eating, and compared
his purchases of Liberty Bonds and
other public bonds with purchases
made by the vigilance corps. His dis
course may have sounded very patri
oticto some of his hearers.
Charlie Kotley, of Hilo; Kekoowai,
of Molokai; and F. Bei.evides, of Ho
nolulu were among the other visiting
speakers at the meeting.
Kuhio's Rally Last Night
Delegate Kalanianaole nddressed a
good sized audience at the Valley Isle
Theater last night. He was the only
candidate who spoke, and he shared
his time with a lady speaker of the
United War Work campaign and with
a few, reels of moving pictures.
Both Kuhio and McCandless were in
the Hana district on Tuesday and
Wednesday, the former going over by
Harry Baldwin's yacht Albers, and the
latter by the Claudine. Kuhio got
back late last evening. He is in La
haina today and expects to be back
in Honolulu tomorrow. It is under
stood that he may visit Molokai later.
McCandless has been touring centr
al Maui yesterday and today, and will
be in Lahaina tomorrow. He will
visit the Settlement and other points.
v
War Work Campaign
Launched On Molokai
Rev. A. C. Bowdish of Paia, and
Rev. Rowland B. Dodge, left on Thurs
day for Molokai, where they are tour
ing the Island in the interests of the
United War Work Campaign.
The first day will be spent at the
leper settlement where it was arrang
ed through the kindness of H. A.
Baldwin to show "The Spy". Tly
will make addresses at Kalaupapa and
Kalawao. On Saturday, and until the
boat returns on next Wednesday
morning, they will speak in all the
villages of Molokai upon the War
work. This arrangement was made
by the territorial and Maui speakers'
comtaittee.
Bertram Aiken Now In
France In Tank Corps
Worth O. Aiken received a post
card from his son Bertram Aiken, by
Tuesday morning's mail, announcing
his safe arrival in France. It was the
first word his parents had had that he
had, or was about to sail.
Young Aiken joined the army some
months ago after working for a time
in a big munitions factory in the east.
He was stationed at Gettysburg, fa.,
where his company was strenuously
drilling and becoming familiar with
the intricacies of their ponderous of
fensive engine, at last advices from
him before this week.

how the women are standing behind
the men. Her address was forceful
and filled with illustrations from the
actual experience of women in muni

Y. W. C. A., work near the battle

The Pogue Service
Flag Has Six Stars
Mr. and Mrs. W. F. Pogue received
a letter from their youngest son Henry
just turned 18, to effect that he has
enlisted in the navy at the Mare Is
land navy rd, California. This
makes the 5th son that has entered
the service since the war began, be
sides which one of their daughters is
enlisted in the army nurses reserve.
Young Henry Pogue went to Hono
lulu some time ago to enter Punahou,
but he wanted to enter the navy in
stead. He tried, but as he was under
18 he couldn't get accepted. But he
managed to get a berth on a vessel
going to the Coast, so he got to Cal
ifornia and settled down with rela
tives in San Jose to wait till he
should grow old enough. This occurr
ed about 10 days ago and he evident
ly lost no time in getting to the re
cruiting office. His brother Charlie,
who is in the navy, and at present on
duty in Alaskan waters, has written
lately urging Henry to keep on with
his schooling for another year or two.

National Guard May
Have Maui Company
Plans To Enlist New Class 1-A Men
In 'Organization Distance Be
tween Residence Centers May Be
Determining Factor Here
It is possible that a company of the
new 5th Regiment, National Guard of
Hawaii, may be established on Maul
following the classification after the
new drart registration which takes
place tomorrow.
Governor McCarthy has advised the
local draft board that it is the policy
of the provost marshal general that
all men placed in Class 1-A shall re
ceive as much military instruction as
possible pending their induction, into
the army, which r.ay or may not oc
cur in H-uvaii. Wherever national
guard units are available the liraftees
are expected to join them for instruc
tion pendinn their call to the color.
The organization of a guard com
pany on Maui will depend probably
upon whether it is found possible to
get a sufficient number of men enlist
ed who live near enough to one center
to make training practicable.
