BUSINESS STROKE IN
HONOLULU, July 17. The
Hawaiian Planters have just
closed a contract with the American
Hawaiian S. S. Co. which will go
info effect a year from next De
comber, whereby tho latter com
pany will transfer all Hawaiian
sugar, save that consumed on the
Pacific Coast and 40,000 tons re
served for sailing vessels, to New
York by way of the Tehuantepec
This new agreement will cause
a very radical change from tho
former methods of shipping sugar
and will cut out the present over
land rail shipments from San
Francisco to New Orleans by way
of tho Southern Pacific. '
Furthermore, tho time it takes
to ship tho sugar will bo cut near
1 in half, the steamship company
guaranteeing that by its new ar
rangements it will land a cargo in
New York inside of forty days after
To handle this enormous busi
nese the company has contracted
with the Union Iron Works of San
Francisco to build two new freight
steamers 500 feot long with 60 feet
beam. These, with the other steam
ers of tho line, will bo put on to
maintain a fast service between
here and the Tehauntepec Rail
road. Tho sorvico will be a trian
gular one, steamers leaving here
every ten days for Central America.
From thcro they will run to San
Francisco and thenco back to the
As before stated, 40,000 tons of
sugar will bo reserved for the Bail
ing vessels to carry around tho
Horn as in tho past, and the sugar
for consumption on the Coast will
bo handled as at present. Tho
changes will bo only in regard to
handling the sugar sent to tho At
Thero aro two reasons why the
contract will not go into effect be
fore a j ear from next December.
Tho new vessels ordered by the
American-Hawaiian Company will
nqt be finished boforo that time,
neither will the Tehauntepec Rail
road bo completed and open for
business for over a year.
Between 120,000 and 130,000 tons
of sugar aro now being shipped
overland from San Francisco to
New Orleans and thenco taken to
New York by boat. This will bo
diverted to the American-Hawaiian
ships and with the time of travol
cut down from 70 days, tho timo
it now takes to send sugar round
tho Horn, to 40 or even 85 days, a
step has been taken by tho sugar
interests which will bo found to
help Hawaii in more ways than
WHITE WORKERS FOR PLANTATIONS.
HONOLULU, July 17. Tho
different plantation Owners and
managers, it is claimed, are enter
ing loyally into tho spirit which
prompted the founding of the Im
migration Bureau, and as a result
it is extremely probable that it
will not be long before a colony of
white workers from Europe will be
shown the wisdom of diverting
their step3 to the far isles of tho Pa
cific. As a primal condition it has be
come tho duty of the Immigration
Commission to find out just what
tho plantations were willing to do
for prospective whito immigrants
and with a view 'to securing ac
curate information a circular let
ter was sent out to the different
plantations asking for information.
Up to the present, while only a few
answers have been received, an
earnest attempt is obviously being
made to gather tho requisito in
formation. It is certain that some
sort of a plan intended to provide
white plantation workers with
homesteads will soon be worked
out. E. E. Paxton has been com
missioned to proceed to New York
for tho purposo of seeing what can
bo done in the way of getting north
ern Italians and Spaniards to come
this way, and it is said that a
scheme for making arrangements
satisfactory to them will slnrtlj' be
Speaking of immigration of labor
for tho plantations hero-Mr. Paxton
said that ,tho Tehuantepec route
would greatly facilitate tho getting
of European laborers to Hawaii,
stated that ho thought, since .ho
new freight steamers of tho American-Hawaiian
Company would not
,bo ready for a lonq time, that sonio
temporary arrangement might bo
made with tho steamship company
to put steerage quarters in some of
their present boats to get labor out
here, if necessary.
"Mind you," said Mr. Paxton, "I
believe that Chinese labor is the
best for our plantations, and we
should not cease to work for some
modifications of tho exclusion law
that would permit of tho entrance
here of Chinese labor, but, at t)io
same 'time, I consider it most im
portant that this European immi
gration matter bo thoroughly look
"Tho first thing to do is to as
certain what the plantations hero
will do in tho way of inducements.
With European labor we would
havo to colonize. Italians, Portu
guese (we have proved tho Portu
guese) or people from the north of
Spain make good workers, but they
must bo given proper inducements.
"I think the immigation question
had much to do with tho determi
nation of arrangements to trans
port sugar by tho Tehuantepec
routo. This will be a splendid

''Our lists are all being checked
off by tho survey department,"
said Land Commissioner Pratt,
"and when they aro finished they
will be given out. A complete re
cord is being made of the lands
that have been taken up since our
last lists, and when all tho work is
done we shall havo available a list
showing just what lands there aro

In both tho land and survey de
partments all other work has been
dropped, to give this work tho pre
ference. It will take a couple of
weeks to go through the records
and surveys and prepare tho com
plete statement as desired.
"The policy of opening and set
tling public lands will be earnestly
followed," said tho acting governor.
"We do not propose to leave
these lands idle, and I believe that
Hawaii can benefit enormously by
some real efforts to get more Ameri
can citizens hero. If they can have
homes they will come."

HONOLULU, July 17. The
7000 or more Koreans in these is
lands have combined to send a re
presentative to the Peace Confer
ence which will bo held at Wash

can towards getting a definite pro
mise from Japan that after a
certain number of years Korea will

Tho representative, Mr. Yoon,

That this is tho first step in what
may turn out to be a matter of the
greatest importance to tho Koreans
its also to future relations of the
powers in the Orient, can readily
bo seen, and it also shows what an
intense interest tho Koreans havo
taken in tho affairs of their country.
They do not have any strong
feeling against the Japaneso, who
have occupied their country, but
rather welcome them, for they re
alize that they may be of great
benefit. But at tho same time the
Koreans long for independence and
this they hopo to get in tho future.
They havo great faith in tho lead

that they would bo granted inde

lier wars has been fighting for that,
and has declared herself in favor
Whilo they havo a friendly feel
ing for Japan, they do not want
her to assert herself forovor, and it
is their great hope that sho will,
aftor a term of years, grant them

live years, or fifteen, but they
would like to feol assured that it
would como at some definite time,
so that meanwhile they could pre
pare themselves for it.
