Reconsideration of the action of the
Hoard of Immigration in voting
against further assisted Russian im
migrants; coming to Hawaii is prob
able at a meeting of the board to be
held in the near future and probably
next week. This is the strong inti
matlon coming from board members.
The board on July 11 voted to re
call Dr. Victor S. Clark from Man
churia and direct him to closeup any
outstanding business there relating
to further Importation of the Russian
laborers under the system that has
been In force. Dr. Clark hzi cabled
in reply that he will 1 e rc-dy. to
leave Yokohama about the end of
July "failing further in? .'ructions.'
- That there will be further- instruc
tions is intimated by members of the
board ,two of whom in particular are
said to be unwilling to abandon Rus
sian immigration, whether or not the
immigrants will go to the plantations.
. The action of the board followed-a
meeting of the trustees of the Sugar
Planters' Association. The sugar men
decided that inasmuch as only 197 out;
of 2000 Kusslans stayed on the plan- j
. tations, they would not Indorse con
