GOVT. 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section is going out of date.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.
