Only within the last two da)s have wo been nblo to get nny copy otsuch measures and then only through tho Iccnl papers. There Is much need for n uniform homestead law for Hawaii, much Hko the Philippine Islarid homestead law, but there Is very strong opposi tion to tho continuation1 of the old Hawaiian land laws such as Govern or Krear seeks to amend, taase, sale, and exchange of public lands In this Territory should be stopped with out delay It Justice Is Intended to be done to the people and the best In terests of the Territory subserved.

"We are doing this as a matter ot principle, and are merely following out the principles laid down In the Democratic platform," said Kmmol uth this morning. "We claim that It Is unjust that the Oovornor should, on his way to Washington, framo Im portant legislation, As If It were a personal matter, and not ono in which tho entlro community Is Inter ested. One ot his proposed amend ments eliminates the only feature of safety In the prctcnt land law, and that Is certainly unjust enough, by doing away with appeals to the courts, and takes all tho power to himself."

The total death roll in the city of Messina from yesterday's earthquake is estimated at 50,000 persons. The total m all districts will probably be double that number. Many citirs and towns are in ruins and it is impossible to obtain ex act figures of the extent of the deaths and disaster. Reggio is isolated and the city is believed to be destroyed. The Straits of Messina have been altered by the seismic disturb ance and navigation is therefore mtidc extremely hazardous. Great los has been suffered by shipping. Messina is being looted and fir? adds to the horror of the situation. ' Mount Etna it particularly act he. The King and Queen of Italy w'll co to the scene of the disaster. Pope Pius has started a relief hi rl wit'' n subscription of one mil lion lire. The world is responding to the call for assistance. Many for eigners are among the victims of the disaster. The -prison at Messina collapse a with the first shake, and the pris oners readily escaping aided in'sacking the city. The Chief of Police is dead and the barracks are demolished. The commander was killed in the rains. All "of the Province of Calabria is devastated. The tidal wave did frightful damage along the coast and scores arc reported to be alive but penned beneath the ruins. A thousand arc dead. At Palmi hundreds were killed. Bagnara has a thousand victims. Cassemza reports Ave hundred dead. The tourist hotel at Palermo was destroyed. ' All the pnests and nuns at Messina perished. Relief is being organized as ranidly as possible. The Red Cross is doing splendid work. i SPRECKELS WILL SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., Dec. 23. The will of the late Claus Sprcck els was filed today.
