HE HAS NO AUTHORITY
TO VISIT THE ISLANDS
Disposed to Favor Modification of
American Homestead Law-Not
in Love With Our Former
N Washington, May 23, 1001. Commis
sion r Hermann, of the General I.nnd
Ofllce. continues to receive letters from
Delegate Wilcox nnil other prominent
llawalians, asking lilm to visit the
lslnmlf , and make n thorough cxnmLna
tlon of their public lands and' land
laws, so that he may comprehensively
deal withstand problems arising In the
Islands-, .should Congress extend to
them bi- United States land Inws, or
give tl;- General Land Office supcr
siiin -ender some other system. To
theft, a to pievlous requests, the
Commissioner has made teply that un
der the circumstances lie does not feel
justice-' In undei taking the trip, al
though he recognizes that considerable
benefit might arise therefrom.
The Commissioner thinks such a
trip ihould not bo mado without nu
thorltallon by Congrcis. If' the Ha
waiian people Interested In securing a
more ictlsfactory system of public
land administration, bring sufficient
Influence to bear upon Congress to se
cure an authorization of such a tour
nf Inspection, the Commissioner would
then be alad to undertake the Jour
ney, upon specific lines laid down,
mitklng investigation of such points as
were nflj'idgcd worthy of Inspection.
"The old Hawaiian land laws nie
still in vogue In the Islands," explained
the CnmUIon;rs. "Under that system,
there are many ways whereby the pub
lic domain Is disposed cf. There is the
homesteatl. the cash sale, leasehold dis
posal, disposal of yfhat are known as
grazing lands, etc. There Is a senti
ment ic Congress in favor of extending
the public land laws of the United
States to asMo Include Hawaii. Dele
gate Wlii'ox vlgoiously objects, and so,
I am informed, does the State Land
Board. Yet at the same time they do
not approve of the present system. It
Is on thlf account that it Is desired that
there shall ho a careful Investigation
made in the field, as to the local condi
tions thtve as will Justify a report In
favor cf such legislation ns would be
adapted to the specific condition" which
can u observed and reported upon. In
other voids, they are of the opinion-
that In order to get favorable and satis
factory legislation from Congress, It is
necessary that some recognized official
of this Government should mnko a per
sonal investigation and report upon his
"I.ait winter I expressed my views on
this matter." continued the Commis
sioner, "and I found that my views
very largely met with the approval of
Delecafe Wilcox. I think that tho
broad provisions of the general land
laws of the United States would ho In
applicable to Hawaii In various pattlc
ulars, especially as regards the most
Important law, the homestead act. I
would object to the extension of the
homeeUad law as a whole, without
qualification because of tho very limit
ed supply of what might bo termed
homeU'ail lands; that Is to sny, such
lands at are agricultural In quality.
Moreover, the great valuo of Hawaiian
lands, together with their enormous
productiveness render It necessary that
homesteads should bo very limited In
area. The maximum could be fixed at
twenty ceres instead of ICO acres, as Is
now allowed In the United States.
These lands which I refer to as home
stead tarts are now occupied under

leases, many of which are about to ex
pire, and If some form of a homestead
law were now In torce In Hawaii these
Unds could be Anally disposed of by the
government under such a law". As it Is,
however, these expiring leases will
have to be renewed.
"The classification nf lands In the
Hawaiian Islands Is very Improperly
made. There should ho a new and dif
ferent classification than that which
now exists In tho public system. Then
again there Is a defect apparent In the
method of surveys, which have been
practiced In the Islands. I further
recognize that for tho purposes of ad
judication between contestants, that
the system which has been so long em
ployed In the government service In
the United States, and wfilch has been
so successful and so popular, to wit,
the local land office, with Its register
and receiver, should be adopted.
"In this connection t would suggest
one local land office for the entire Isl
ands, with tho register and receiver at
Honolulu, to meet the people, and de
cide all contests In the original Instance
with right of appeal to the gcncrnl land
office and further appeil to the Secre
tary of the Interior."
The Commissioner explained that
under tho present law all mnttcrs per
taining to the disposal of public lands
In Ilnwall shall be addressed to tho
President of the United States. Under
this law the disposal of these public
lands Is practically suspended, as the
President Is only authorized to renew
leases. New legislation will bo neces
sary before theso lands enn bo tnl.rn
up under the homestead or any other

such was not only tho power of tho

When tho T. K. K. America Maru sailed nway yesterday, she car-
rled as one of her passengers, n man on whose shoulders may rest,
In part, tho fate of the Chinese Emplie. He was nouo other than Dr.
Y, S. Sun, the young Chinaman who, fired with tho overpowering
ambition of freeing his countrymo from the power of the mandarins
nnd the Control of au arbitrary monarch, has decided to tear asunder
the chains of slavery and set his people free freo as the people iiu-
dcr tho Stars nnd Stripes, to whom bo owes the first thoughts of this
scheme of emancipation.
V llcfore leaving for China, Dr. Sun, In a talk with a Ilullctln repor-
tcr, told something of his plans which will undoubtedly be Interest-
. Ing to the many Chinese of Hawaii who are In sympathy with tho
objects of the revolutionists. Naturally, the first question that oc-
curred to the reporter was this: "Are you not afraid of losing jour
head?' ' This started the revolutionist, who spoke as follows:
"No, I am not nfrald of losing my bend. I shall, upon setting
foot In China, communicate with tthe men nearest ine who have
sworn to uphold the tnuso of tho revolution. Tho government police
officers or soldiers will not touch mo for they nro nfrald. I do not
mind saying that tho defection In theso two bodies Is so widespread

to begin wnrk.
"Will there bo bloodshed? I am tho last ono who would wish to
see human life taken but I fear that such a state of affairs cannot bo
avoided. Tho Queen Dowager and tbo mandarins will not surrender
the power which has comedown to, them from centuries past and
will undoubtedly dtsput with a show of arms, every encroachment
made by the revolutionists. ,
"There will be bloodshed and plenty of It. An amicable settlement
Is out of tbo question a compromise, a result not to be tolerated by
cither sldo In this fight for a cessation of oppression."
