LANDS Commissioner Brown Tells of His Recent .tatiiatioas, SUGAR AND COFFEE INDUSTRIES The Effect of the Proposed Plan tationMany Applications for Land Volcano Road. Land Commissioner J. F. Brown re turned by the Kinau yesterday morn ing. He has been ia Hawaii for sev eral weeks during which time he has made a thorough investigation of the Government lands soon to be thrown open. The following account of his investi gations and ideas is taken, from the Hilo Herald: Olaa is in the throes of reorganiza tion and coffee as an industry in that section is going out of date. In other words, sugar is king and will continue to rule the .Islands. Reports which reach Hilo from different sources in dicate that coffee plantations are being absorbed by the promoters of the sugar plantations to such an extent that, ex cept upon the new lands to be opened by the Government, coffee will be prac tically an unknown quantity in tha section of the countrj Land Com missioner Brown, accompanied by Land Agent Baldwin, returned on Tuesday from a visit to the Ola district and was asked by a reporter for the Herald his views on the subject of transforma tion. "I was sorry to see it," he said, '"be cause the Government has gone to a great expense in providing for settlers and individual holders of land rather than corporations. The land was given to them at a low price because it was thought they would develop a big in dustry in coffee. It is not pleasant to contemplate the swallowing up of the land by a corporation. When, the proposition to "establish a mill in Olaa was first mentioned I approved of it, because I knew that a number of the coffee men had gone into debt in clear ing and planting a portion of their land, ar.d as they had not made a big thing out of coffee, I saw for them ample returns in the cultivation or cane on the balance of their lands. But the affair has taken on a different shape, and I am disappointed. When I saw Mr. Thurston, who is really the father of the Olaa coffee industry, going into a planter's home the other day with the view of making a bargain with him for the purchase of his land for sugar cane cultivation I could ' not help telling him that he was the last man I would expect - to see taking the step. But it will be a big scheme and it will put a great seal of money into circula tion when the lands are paid for." Asked about the allotmen-ts of lands to persons who hold crown land leases and who, under their contracts, are en titled to additional holdings, Mr. Brown said: . "That is a matter which will require careful consideration. These men, in some instances, secured only a fourth, or fifty acres, of the land to w;hich they were entitled. At the price given it was supposed they would take up land in the original Olaa reservation, but they did not, they delayed selecting until there was finally none to select and now they want it. The question is, will they be allowed to select land in the new section soon to be opened up? I believe they will, but whether at the price charged for their original hold ing is a matter to be determined by the Cabinet. Just here this matter is made more complicated by the recent action of the Olaa Coffee Planters' Associa tion in fixing the price of inside coffee lands at $140 per acre. The Govern ment knows that much of the land which was sold to coffee men at three, four and six dollars per acre a very few years ago, has recently been sold by them at $100 per acre to the sugar men. This, backed by tne action of the Coffee Planters' Association, will be a factor in determining the price to be charged for the new lands. The Government has shown a disposition to help the people in the past by giv ing them land at a low price, but I do not know how it will be in the future. This special right of purchase lease has features which makes it easy for men to take up the land at a cheap rate, do little or nothirg to it and sell at a big profit. For instance: there is the mat ter of improvements. Now, what con stitutes improvements? The lease does not specify and you know there are as many different opinions as to the prop er method of growing coffee as there are settlers in the district. John Doe takes up a hundred acre?, which he is expected to improve. He finds he has a forest of ferns and ohia and decides that coffee must have plentjr of shade. He will clear off a few of the big trees, plant eight or ten coffee trees to the acre, and presto, his land has a market value of $100 per acre with the men who want it for sugar. "Another thing to contend with is the so-called settlement association," continued Mr. 'Brown. "The Govern ment has the right to set apart land for an association who wish to settle for the purpose of being together with their families and maintaining pleas anter social relations than, if their nearest friend was three or four miles down the tract. I guess I have enough applications from such associations to cover the entire tract in Olaa and it ia a question what is to be done with them. I have, also, applications for this Olaa land from men ia the United States who came here looking up land ast year and who will return when the and is ready for the public. If this new land is apportioned out, the cream of it, I mean, to men who hold claims under crown land leases and to settle ment associations, those men in the States had better remain- where they are, they would be as well off, for there would be nothing left for them. "As to the appearance of the Volcano road, in so far as the forest is con cerned, I can only say that the law pro vides that the forest for loO feet back of the road must not be destroyed. That is the law, and before that land can be cultivated the law must be re pealed or amended. The sugar com pany will probably fence on the inside so as to keep stock out of the cane, but something should be done to keep them from entering from the road During my visit there I saw cows graz ing in the forest and found evidence of their destroying the shrubbery. It seems only a question of time when these animals will do what the holders of land are prohibited from doing." From another source it was learned that the promoters are still securing land and that a maximum price has been fixed, above which they will not go. On Monday they went over the Keaau tract and on Tuesday, the Ship man lands were investigated. The lat ter has some favorable points, but the matter of taking in Keaau still remains in doubt. That the railway will go through there is no doubt at this time and it will go through Hamakua, Olaa and Puna, provided a plantation at the latter place is established, and there is every reason to helieve it will be.
