Make Gets Water Rights
The Makee Sugar Co., after a
fight covering a period of more than
ten years, has succeeded in its
attempt t o secure water rights
from the government for a period
of seven years.
For the use of several hundred
acres of cane land for the above
length of time, the Makee Sugar
Company agrees to construct a
water system wrich will include
immense water ditches and reser
voirs, all of which will revert to
the government at the expiration
of the seven years. The improve
ments will cost in the neighbor
hood of $25,000 and in the opinion
of those who seem to know the
situation, unless the price of sugar
remains up, the proposition does
utl seem so very promising for the

By Henry Waiau
Prince Kuhio a Republican Can-'
date to Congress made an appear
ance before a mass of Lihueites
and made very interesting remarks
concerning the future -interest of
the Territory last Thursday. t
Kuhio based his remarks chiefly
upon Americanizing Hawaii. -To
Americanize Hawaii is to im
port European people, for they
will produce better American
Citizen than the Asiatics.
The allowing o f the aliens t o
work on the plantations will allow
the ounger generations of whom
h e stated that in ten years
hence will control two thirds of
the majority of voters o f . the
Territory. To depend on younger
generation o f Jaliens it o work
on the plantation ' in the future
will be a theory of doubt, for
Hawaii is educating them and to
go back irjto the plantation and
work will onlv be a menace to
their' proper education. W.h a t
shall they do? They will leav.

The failure of introducing classi
fied people to this Territory was
due to . p o o r administration.
Ten years since annexation, the
administration o f today is just
the ( same of ten years ago. No
improvement has been made there
upon. We are to fight for
better administration that will
treat the rich and the poor alike.
Administration that will encouFi
aged homesteaders. We are t6
fight for better administration to
place this little Territory in a rec
ord that they can rule themselves.
Now we are certainly net to be
blamed by Congress for thia poor
administration, because they have
appointed the man where we have
no right to do it. We are to fight
for the protection of the sugar in
dustry that makes this little Terri
tory. The administration of today
gives poorjresults to homesteaders
the distributing of the three, four,
five, more or less acres to home
steaders of today is considered a
failure. How canany man or men
make a living on three acres of
land. Why isn't the full adminis
tration of the Territory enforced
Notice to Parents
I will be at the Lihue Public

law requires each .homesteader to
acquire 85 acres of land doesn't it.
The law is a vefy good one but
what . 'about the" administration,
Docs it enforce the law? Its a won
der that to introduce good class of
people in this Territory proved to
be a serious problem, whose facts
was wholly due to poor adminis
tration. . . ' -
Tile latest, pitiful event
that occurred witli tlie Portuguese
at Punchbowl, proves to be a very
mean piece of woik, that was per
formed bv the governor. Instead
of giving time to homesteaders he
cut them up and sold Ihem to those
who can afford t o pay for them.
To protect thejnterest of the home
steaders, it is absolutely necessary
to constitute a body of commission
that will make definite charges, to
equally share the profit between
the homtsteader and the mill owner
or plantation. The sugar tariff that
was endorsed by., the Democratic
party is very bad for it will hinder
the progress of our sugar industry.

A question concerning the con
structing o f Nawiiiwili Harbor
was answered by" Kuhio. The in
troducing of the bill for Nawiiiwili
Harbor four years ago was a fail
u r e in e a c 1 and every
time the bill was presented. The
troubje was due to the Kauaites.
They kept on nagging and chew
ing for two place s and
consequently the work was delay
ed. The allowing- of an appro
priation permits engineers to in
vestigate the Nawiiiwili suppose
harbor a few months ago. It is
this one thing that Kauai ought to
do, get together, pull together and
by have a unanimous approval on
one certain port, you will get it
very quick. But to keep on fight
ng for a place to build your har
bor it will take a long rnn for; it.

A Paper For The People, On
The world is buckling on the
fine armor -of modem research
and knowledge and is sending its
combined strength into the field
against ttilierculosis. Tuberculosis,
an ancient enemy o f mankind,
which for thousands of years has
ruled master over the fate of
thousands of lives has been an in
exorable task-maker with the
power o f the high justice, the
middle and the low, and there
has been no appeal. Armed insur
rection against it is an incident of
modernity, a. matter of only a few
I wish to impress you with the
fact that in Hawaii, the board of
h e a 1 t h,' the Anti-Tuberculosis
League, private institutions and
private philanthropy have combin
ed to muster their forces against
tuberculosis. Fet-hlp n e nft. tVu-'
amis Hawaii has : to offer against
tuberculosis the invasion of the .
white plague, these, bodies ' have
hopes of attaining a moderate sue- ,
cess, of checking the invasion, of
saving many lives and ot prevent
ing the searing of many others,
eventually.' to place the people 'of
Hawaii in a position where tuber-,
culosis. will find scant welcome
and bad fare.
The work against this disease
in the Territory has been growing
for several years. A number of
valuable points have been gained
and advances 'have been made
that help assure to Hawaii an Ul
timate' complete success. 4 Briefly
the , stage ti o w. reached is that
where responsibility s hTTt s '
If X iay term the ardor with
Which certain individua's have de
voted themselves to this work as a
fanaticism of philanthropy, I will
say that fanaticism has taken the
Territory as far as it can. Enthu
siasm is the force that must move
it hereafter and enthusiasm is a
weapon ot tue masses, just as
tulerculosis i s a disease of the
So the responsibility rests now
upon tnose who constitude the
mass of the people in this Terri
tory. It is a cosmopolitan popu
lace to which the anti-tuberculosis
workers now appeal, a mass of
many alien component, but w e
hope that the enthusiasm that
must come to the assistance of the
now active workers will be the
stronger and more direct because
it will be shared by numbers who
have little other ground in com
mon. Tuberculosis, it may be re
marked, considers all grounds
common to its activity.
The point is this. All nations
of the globe which amount to any
thing are joining in what may be
the greatest popular crusade since
that limited Christian one which
had for its purpose the attaining
of the Holy Sepulchre. Is Hawaii
to share this spirit, which is the
spirit o f generosity and human
feeling, or will it wait until the
other independent states straighten
up trom their tasks and after a
moment's rest point the finger ot
housewifery at us and say, "Now
we must clean that place?". I do
not think that Hawaii will wait
once the people here become out
wardly educated a n d inwardly
conscious o f what the crusade
against tuberculosis means to all
of us.
Tuberculosis is a peculiarly in
timate thing. Is resides at our
doorsteps and when it is not kill
ing our neighbor's children it is
killing our own. It does not prevent
that terrible form which like
plague or cholera casts its black
shadow across human minds,
striking terror into the hearts of
men and moving them to frantic
endeavors to rid themselves of the
awful burden. Tuberculosis comes
as silently and as inviduously as
unconsciousness to an injured
man, remains quietly and goes
away as noiseless and as sure as a
hearse. The Great White Plague
is a terrible thing It offers no
grip to the struggler. It took great
minds and the essense of human
patience of bent through its ghost
