THE PACIFIC COMMERCIAL ADVERTISER: HONOLULU, 7 DECEMBER 15. 1900.
THE) PACIFIC (ittmtrcial Adveniser tXALTEB O. SMITH - - EDITOR. SATURDAY DECEMBER 15 Infantry, distinctively as such. Is likely to disappear from war. Military experts have at last found out that It Is wiser to have a soldier carried swift ly from point to point than to make him carry a load and go slow.' Bo the mounted Infantryman is looming up. He. will ride to where he is wanted and then fight on foot. The new departure will give the horse a new lease of life unless an Improved automobile comes Into use for military purposes which la able to travel, wherever a steed can go. The amusing Bulletin warns Agent Haywood that If he "puts his lingers in the political pie at Washington he can knock his own prospects and the large interests he represents Into a cocked hat." This sounds enough like ' the thunders of the First Circuit bench to scare a canary off its perch. As for Mr. Haywood, who Is an American citi zen with large influence at Washington, we do not doubt that his fingers will Ko into the political pie whenever he sees anything there that Hawaii ought to have and that he will do his duty with the same serene Indifference to the ' local Tooley street politicians that he always showed while taking tfart in public affairs here.- An evening paper, in trying to make howlae for. the Immediate aaopuou I i of a city charter,-has mtervieweq ousi M ness men with this significant result: For 0car White, J. M. Vivas, jFrank Brown. "'ti Against-Judge Wilcox, W. W. Di .r.on.1. Judge Kaii.ukou - q Sometime F. E. Nichols, C. S. Des ky. J. F. Soper. , Of those who are for the charter Mr. White confesses that he has. not given the matter much study; Jlr. Vivas .-Ant to make the "moneyed classes" ... nririitinnal exuense: Mr. Brown Is willing to have taxes raised so that ,h. can get "representation." which he YlHims Is now denied him. Those who think they would like a charter some time give the strongest kind of reasons why there should be no experiment with one until the peopl who pay the taxes can elct the men to spend them. At present the some-timers rationally belong In the adverse column. Judging from our contemporary's interviews it will be forced to go to the fishmarket to find enough pro-charter sentiment . to give the tax-lifting scheme any sem blance of popular good will. The eajrerness of the plumbers to re move Inspector Moore and put in an other Duffy appears In a published let ter of a master plumber and in the general sentiment of the lead pipe brotherhood. Anyone who has followed Moore's course will see at a glance that his fidelity to the public interests is what has made him persona non 'grata to the members of the bursted trust. He Is too strict to suit the men who do in ferior work at a superior price or who . want to be let alone In their tdcks of trade. While the writer of the puDiisn those who are without the restraining ) influence of local and traditional asso- I cations and are not interested In thJ social growth of the Hawaiian commu nity, this danger 'may become more threatening than heretofore. It should be settled beyond all ques- , tlon that no moneyed- Interest shall De j allowed to stand in the way f the SETTLEMENT OF T"K smalu PROPRIETOR. . We insist, therefore, that one. hundred white families would do Hawaii more good than a new plantation of five times that ' many acres, .-especially where the stock of the plantation had been mainly placed abroad. If the Territorial Government would act on .these lines, assuming tnai -i still has the right to administer its pub lic lands, there would be fewer threats from Washington of a transference of control to the United States Land Bu reau. All Washington wants Is to have vacant Island acres - settled up; and that is what the majority of the Hawaiian-Americans . want, i We prefer, however, to , have the 'land business done at short range and without any wasteful ouarter-sectlon methods such as usually obtain at the national capi tal. ' : . ; ; Here are the men Whom the Inde pendents want 'to enlist to act with as many more in the framing of a city charter: ' i .' ' A. S. Humphreys, Judge. ' . C. Bitting. Attorney. H. S. Townsend, School Teacher. . Allan Herbert, Capitalist John Cassidy, Electrician. E. C. Rowe. Painter. James C. Quinn, Hack Driver. J. Edwards,j Contractor. John H. Wilson, Contractor. Jas. K. Kaulia, Attorney. .,, Robert N. Boyd, Surveyor. Solomon Meheula, Printer. S. K. Pua, Farmer. George Kala. Printer. J. K. Nakookoo, Attorney. W. H. Kalltmai, Hack Driver. !. M. Kealoha, Farmer... . - J. K. Kaunamano, Attorney. In this list possibly three men are qualified for such a .task .as the erec tion of a system of organic law for a city where local government presents more vexatious'probTems than it does anywhere ' on -the Mainland, -r Viewing the probable result of rthe work, the frjends of Hawaii would do well to ap peal to Congress at its present session to so amend the Territorial Act as to make the assent of that body a pre requisite to the final adoption of any proposed form of county, and city ad ministration here. 1 ' U. 7.I!L''Prre Forth 1 Te rra VERSES ON HAWAII NEI (Continued from Page 1.)

Blue 8331. i ,..a i 10c peryardaaji w per pan mj ed letter may have, for all we know, a right to complain of some hasty ruling, his contention that Moore should be put out merely represents the desire of the plumbers to get an Inspector who will stand In with them. Petting a plumber to watch a rlumber may have some traditionary merit but the idea was coined before. trades-unionism came In with Its binding pledge upon craftsmen to support each other against thei field. Under such circumstances It is the duty of the Health Board, no matter whst the protests of the plumbers may be, to give Inspector Moore, so long ns h maintains his present policy, a unit ed and cordial support. 1 OUR LAND POUCY. Thi? land policy which ' ourM to be pursued In these Islands was correctly described by Governor Dole it; his In augural address, as follows: .. The land policy of the Republic of Han ail, whereby public lands are open ed for settlement In small holdings, should be continued by the Territory with such changes as experience has shown to bo necessary and carried on with vigor and earnestness in the hop that many Americans may be led to transfer their homes from the Main land to Hawaii. . , There are several charges which ex perience has shown to be at least' ad visable. One Is the abandonment of the long lease system by. which land suitable for small homesteads Is kept In the hands of large estates. We know of several thousand acres on the Island of Oahu, the. lease of which will expire In a few months, that have been held byne estate for fifty year at a rental f THREE CENTS an'acre.bnd used for grazing and dairying purposes. The ' land-would sustain about five hundred white families on the Wahiawa plan: yet if the public does not watch out the estate now controlling the vast tract may get it again for another half cen tury. Better use can be made of this Jand and the rest of the 90.000 public acres on Oahu by peopling It with In dustrious Americans and thus prepar ing the-way for that Statehood which will never come until this Territory, In the quality of Its electorate, equals other Territories which have become States. There, would be . no trouble about getting such Americans now if the land resources of yie Islands were not so sedulously concealed from the public eye. and the operations of the Land, office kept so dark. Publicity as a first' requisite would Settle the land question In the way to secure the greatest good to the greatest number, which should be the object sought by II Governments. , - We hold that in cases where there Is a 'choice between giving water rights to colonies of white farmers or to land which might attract them, and giving such rights to new and perhaps specu- . w VV "Uar Bcheme!. the farmers should have the preference. V'e agree with all that Governor Dole said in these paragraphs: The pressing demands of agricultur al corporations for cheap Held labor toge her with their great Influence. wU J f.V!LBUC,h.? dve,pment of such a tli ,?PU,la!,0n a9 "h1" safeguard the political future of Hawaii.

Very pretty indeed is the sentiment and metre of Miss Felker's Hawaiian "New Year's Greeting": Hawaii nel, Hawaii nei, Dear tropic land of song and lei, Farewell to thee." the Old Y-ar sings, A greeting glad the New Year brings. And message fraught with kinalv ' cheer " I For parents, friends and children dear. I bnng." he says, "in plenty, rain, . And taro, rice, and sugar cane. I bring you hope; I bring you peace; Away with care! Let sorrow cease. I bring to you, Hawaii nel, Akua's smiles to light the way." All through the little book will b found thoughts, fancies and pleasant conceits for Christmas and the New Year. One sentiment is worth treasur ing: "From rough outsides serene and gentle Influences often proceed." It is the kind of book that should be added to every young girl's library, and one wnicn would be hiehlv nrized bv the recipient. It adds another leaf tj Miss Felker's laurel wreath.
