THE PACIFIC COMMERCIAL ADVERTISER: HONOLULU, 7 DECEMBER 15. 1900.

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 of a city charter,-has mtervieweq ousi
M ness men with this significant result:

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.

tlon that no moneyed- Interest shall De j

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. ' : .

pendents want 'to enlist to act with as
many more in the framing of a city

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

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.
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
The pressing demands of agricultur
al corporations for cheap Held labor

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
