Says Farmers' Loan Act and Fed

Should Be Extended To Hawaii
A talk outlining clearly nil attl- I
( tude, on public land in thin Territory I
were the features of an address by I
f' lr. .lames H. Raymond yesterday be- J
' fore the Ail Club. The Maui medico,
who in socking the nomination on the
-; Democratic ticket as delegate to eon-;
: preen, chose for hid subject "Can the
I Hawaiian be Placed upon the Public
Land of Hnwaiit" As this was the
first public seech that Doctor Kay- I
mond has made on Oahu during his
present campaign there was a large
number present at the meeting to heart
where he Mood on the laad question.
rl ' , Doctor Raymond said that at every
nook and corner on Hawaii, where he
addressed gatherings, he alwavs asked
his auditors whnt legislation they were
most interested in and what they want
ed their delegate to congress to get fpr
' them and invariably the answer came
back, "Land!" The Hawaiians, For
tuguese and all nationalities, eligible
to take np land, are vitally interested
in the land question, Doctor Raymond
said, and the national administration
at Washington is also vitally intercut
ad i this subject, which was evidenced
by the fact that Secretary of the In
terior l.ane was aent her from Wash
ington to carry this message to the
people, at a time when bis time and
services were of vital importance to
. s'i- the government at Washington.
Whaths Problem Is
Opening lands for homesteadiag was
a simple problem, the speaker said, but
.', ' the taking ear of the homesteader, the
financing of him and assisting him to
make a success as? his agricultural ven
ture. was the problem with which the
thinking people of Hawaii have to
. tleaL Whether this legislation should
be gotten from the Wat legialature or
by- a direct appeal to Washington was
V ' a matter of considerable importance to
. .' the leaders of both parties.
. "I have bees ashed by thinking men
.'v men who have studied this question
of publie lands if the Hawaiian would
go on these sugar lands if they were
oiened up tad get right down to the
the serious business of raising sugar
ease," said the speaker. "From a rest
denee of twenty-live years in these
Islands; a clone) study of the Hawaiian
race; active eiperienee as chairman
of the territorial land board, I main
taia that a large number of thrifty in
i dustrioua Hawaiians will go on these
land if they are given or are assured
' of any financial assistance when they

, United States but Hawaii are receiv

federal government through the Fed

Farmers' Loan Act. If these laws were
modified to fit the conditions here, I

( . wh4jji is to be opened up shortly would
have bona fide settlers upon it of both
t&e Hawaiian and Portuguese races, who
'would, within a very few years, make
then lands even more productive than
they sre.

criminal libel standing against Roderick

wa dropped in the circuit court yes-,
