For some weeks past the San Francisco Chronicle has devot
ed considerable space in its columns to tha exodus of Japanese
laborers from Hawaii to California. Undor date of March 7 under
the editorial caption of "Each Race For Its Own" it says:
"In the passage of an exclusion act it is not necessary to wound
the national pride of Japan in the least, or to impair tne traditional
friendship which was the result of our forcible and entirely un
warranted intrusion on Japanese privacy half a century ago. It
is unnecessary in so doing: to lose a dollar's worth of trade which
We might otherwise possess. No one can dispute the high intel
lectual qualities of the Japanese, their practical wisdom, their in
tense patriotism or their national vigor.
It is not necessary, even, for ua to dispute the claim which
the Japanese would doubtless make that their civilization is great
ly superior to our own. Let it go at that. It is sufficient to say
that their civilization is radically different from ours; that it is a
civilization which, whether better or worse, involves conditions of
life for the working class and small merchants which our working
people will not willingly endure, and' that the best interests of both
peoples demand that each shall be permitted to develop its own
civilization, on its own soil, unimpeded by the intrusion of large
masses of a different race, with different ideals and wholly different
habits of life."
That there is a movement on foot to deprive Hawaii of this class
of labor is further demonstated, by the following:
Honolulu, March 6. The Japanese newspapers here contai n ad
vertisements announcing that the steamer Centennial, jelono-ing
to Charles Nelson & Co. of San Francisso. will leave itira March
25th, and the steamer Olympia, belonging to the Oriental Trading
Company, on April I8tn, to take Japanese labor.g from the Ha
waiian Islands to the Pacific States. The Centennial, the adver
tisements say, will make monthly trips between the Coast and Ho
nolulu. The Hawaii Shin po says that agent?, are at work 0n the planta
tions trying to induce the laborers t0 ieave. The paper predicts
disturbances which may lead to, USfy consequences when the
steamer loads of Japanese labo;rers begin to 8rrive at San Fran
cisco and Seattle, y
fS? The rubber indusV( frora the factof its economy in the cost
of production, sho;J,dt and will undoubtedly prosper and eventu
ally become a rsnurce nf large revenue to Hawaii. It is nut an indus
try that a poor man dare venture in; but an individual or company
with ampl,e furijs wherewith to develop and await returns can be
assure 0f a g00C investment. In the Nahiku Plantation, which
as. Without doubt past the initial experimental stage, we have an
exampleof what can be done by experienced men in rubber cultiva
tion. While rubber trees will rot thrive iu all localities there are
districts with ample lands where these trees will mature, and it is
only a question of knowing the lands suitable and the proper seed
There may have been iudifferent and unsuccessful attempts made
in the past to grow rubber, but either the exertion was merely
nominal, the locality a poor one for the seed, or he seed the
w.rong variety for the locality. The fact that the Nahiku com
pany has produced a rubber of genuine pure Para quality, should
prove conclusively that transplanted stumps, or seeds, thrive and
the product equals that of the parent tree. The introduction of
the ar.to as a mode of conveyance for both social and commercial
duties has so greatly increased that the world's supply is inr lfss
than the demand for many years to come.
Jri The uction of tlm Houso in striking out of the County Act the
otficu of Deouty Tax Collector for the .V.iiUku di-stnct and retaining
the same office in other districts of the islands passes all under
standing. If it is the intention to do away with the office and ser
vices of deputy tax collectors, why not ir.axe tne bill so read that
it will cover all districts where a tax collector und a deputy now
hold office. If the Nkws understands correctly, the deputy's pay
is a percentage one, based on the amount of tax collected. It is
hardly fair to ask it deputy to work six or nine mouths of the cal
endar year gratis, and t hen about the time he looks forward to re
imbursement finds, per reason of a new law, a new man at the
helm Hnd his six or nine months' labor gone for naught so far as
he is concerned, but of material aid to the new incumbent. It is
the duty of the Senate to see that the VVailuku district is treated
with the same consideration in this matter, or so revise the ciause
to make it applicable to all districts.
The News believes that the Senate will not agree to the action
of the House, and that the latter body will reinsert the clause in
the County Act retaining the office of deputy collector in the Wai
"35 House Bill number thirty-five introduced by H. M. Kaniho, the
Home Rule representative, provides for the establishing and
maintaining of school libraries and "All books in the school libraries,
except books of reference and sets of reading books shall be avail
able to the residents of the neighborhood." This is a move in the
right direction as next to good schools and good teachers, a good
library available to the public shows excellent foresight. Next to
a (Carneige) public library, which Wailuku does not possess,
school library is a necessity.

Maui blights. The News is forced to qualify that statement by
giving Professor Koebele credit for the seed and yellow blight.
