was harvested during the summer of 1934. Due to an 8-month drought the returns from this block were materially reduced—yet the net returns were better than expected. The reduction in cost to mature a crop of pineapples made it possible for such a creditable showing.

Kuhio settlement at Keaukaha, Waiakea, South Hilo, on the island of Hawaii, consists of 231 lots of 1 acre each, of which 211 have been leased to Hawaiians, 6 have been set aside for the use of the Keaukaha school, 6 have been set aside as a park site, and 5 have been set aside as church sites.

The county of Hawaii has completed the macadamizing of Todd, Desha, Kauhane, and Andrews Avenues at no cost to the commission. Practically all of the homes are now furnished with electricity. The improvement and growth of this project within financial assistance from the commission are very gratifying, demonstrating that Hawaiians are capable of building homes out of their own earnings when opportunities are afforded them to settle upon the land.

Nanakuli project on the island of Oahu consists of 341 lots of onehalf acre each of which 240 are under lease to Hawaiians and 3 set aside as church sites.

The commission is still confronted with the problem of insufficient water supply for the domestic use of these homesteaders. The city and county of Honolulu is at the present time developing additional water sources in order to relieve the needs of this community.

The population of all Hawaiian home-developed projects is:

Palaau-Hoolehua 1,011

Kalanianaole 251

Kapaakea-Kamiloloa 6

Keaukaha 1, 336

Waimanu 3

Seven banks, with 23 branches, were in operation in the Territory at the close of the fiscal year June 30, 1935. These seven, with main offices in Honolulu, were Bank of Hawaii, Bishop National Bank of Hawaii, American Security Bank, Liberty Bank, Pacific Bank, Sumitomo Bank, and Yokohama Specie Bank. Of these 7, 3, namely, Bank of Hawaii, Bishop National Bank of Hawaii, and American Security Bank, maintain branches in various parts of the Territory, to wit: On the island of Oahu, Bank of Hawaii at Pearl Harbor, Waipahu and Waialua, Bishop National Bank of Hawaii at Schofield and Waialua; on the island of Maui, Bank of Hawaii at Wailuku, Lahaina and Paia, Bishop National Bank of Hawaii at Kahului and Wailuku; on the island'of Hawaii, Bank of Hawaii at Hilo, Honokaa, Kohala, Kealakekua and Pahala, Bishop National Bank of Hawaii at Hilo and Kealakekua; on the island of Kauai, Bank of Hawaii at Lihue and Kapaa, Bishop National Bank of Hawaii at Waimea and Koloa, American Security Bank at Kapaa; on the island of Lanai, Bishop National Bank of Hawaii at Lanai City. All of said banks and their branches have both commercial and savings departments.

The new bank, the American Security Bank, was chartered to do a banking business by the treasurer, Territory of Hawaii, on March 27, 1935, with main offices in Honolulu and a branch at Kapaa, island of Kauai. This bank was financed by the Reconstruction Finance Corporation and by stockholders and depositors of the old Chinese American Bank, which was taken over by the treasurer, Territory of Hawaii, for liquidation, pursuant to section 6613, Revised Laws of Hawaii, 1935. This new bank purchased a portion of the assets of the Chinese-American bank, thereby making possible a partial distribution of dividends to the depositors of the Chinese American Bank. The American Security Bank became a member of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation on April 24, 1935, thereby giving to its depositors the benefit of insurance and guarantee against loss on accounts up to $5,000. It is the only bank in the Territory of Hawaii affording to depositors such insurance.
