Is White Labor possi- The daily Chrotiicleof tho four
ble for the Islands? teenth instant has the following to
say of the movement of Japanese to America. "Just as the Japa
nese are affected with the American fever so the Territorial Im
migration Bureau and the planters are affected with the white
immigration fever, just in the same proportion ns the immigration
of the Japanese labors is an obstruction to Hawaiis progress so
will the attempt to import white laborers do a great harm to Hawaii
and just as intensely as we, hope the Japanese labors will be healed
of their Amerian fever so if not more intensely do we hope thecapi
talists will be healed of their white fever.
It is well that the planters attempt to prevent immigration nnd
we Will support them in this attempt and hope they will succeed
We hope that the white mans white fever will soon subside."
That this is true of both the Japanese and whites from America
no one who is at all familiar with conditions in the states will deny.
Certain classes of labores from Countries similar to Hawaii in
climatic conditions have however proven a success here and all
wish to see more come Of the different nationalities imported
the Portugese are by far the most satisfactory. Tney are steady
industrious, law abiding and have done much to build up the ter
ritory and as time advances they will be of greater help in this
direction than they have in the past. Tho Porto Kicans, against
whom so much has been said and much of which we regret to say
was true are not all bad nor have they been an xinqualitied failure
as those about our towns seem to believe. Tho lawless class, and
they are for too large, loaf about towns, commit many petty offenses
and too often more serious crimes and gave the whola number a
bad name. As a whole they have been of much benefit to the
industrial interests of the territory and are a vast, improvement
over having a laboring class composed exclusively of Asiatics.
We believe the Molokans will be a valuable addition to the islands
and hope to see thousands of them here not to entirely replaceany
of the classes now here but to keep a proper b ilance in tho indus
trial conditions and help to build up the territory.
Coroner's Inqueur Tor Drown
Thursday, Mare 15.
A dog that had a connier's iuepiest
called to "inquire when, how, and by
what means ho came tj his death," is
affording the officials of the Hoard of
Health unlimited emusriueni today.
The story connected with tho all.iir
is as follows.
This morning someone found a mys
terious package floating in a ptnd in
Waikiki. The object it contnined nan
eareful'y wrapped in a blanket, nnd
was about Uvo and a lulf feet long.
The sleuthlike instincts of the fim'.er
were aroused. He imm dUtely fi jurist

and size of the package.- that, it must.
contain the lifeless hoiv ot an infant,
murdered by steal i ti by its unr.atu ai
mother, and iminodiati'ly commu
nicatee! his dipcovi'iy to the police.
he cue toiiians ol the J'cuce hastened
to secure the package and brought it
forthwith to the morgue in order to
h .ve i n autopsy performed. In the
meantime a coroner's jury was sum
moned to investigate the case.
When the nwsterious package was
opened at the morgue it created some
sensataiioii Instead of a child it c n-
t aiued the corpse of a small dog, which
had evidently been in the wate r for
several davs. Trie departed cani.i?
was evidently a family pet. It was
carefully wrapped in several layers
of cloth, and accompanying the re-.
mains were a rattle, several other
toys and some small bowls, which had
evident! v been used bv poor Fido,
when he w as in "the land of the living.
In the meantime the police n-e

were summoned, that their duties

Thomas Cummings for nearly thirty yeais in the employ of the
plantation now known as the Wailuku Sugar Ccinpany died at his
home on Sunday afternoon of heart disease and diabetis.
He had been ill but a short time and his death came as a great
shock to his many friends. He was taken to the Malutani Hospital
but a short time ago and not until last Friday evening when it was
learned th tfi ho w rjli take no nourislimant b it iusistol on goin
homewasJt felt that he was seriously ill.
. In spite of a down pouring rain he insisted on going home where
he died a few hours afterward surrounded by his heart broken
wife and children and some of his most intimate friends.
Mr. Cummings was one of the best plantation men here and
it will be difficult to tind a man who so thoroughly understood his
division and his laborers as he did. He was one of Maui's best
citizens, and his death causes a void lha,t it will take time to fill
The funeal which was largely attended was held at his late resid
ence and was conducted by Rev. W. Ault of the Episcopal Church
Ihe pall bearers were Judge A. N. Kepoikai, W. H. Corn well, T
A. Lloyd, George Weight, W. T. Robinson and Eduiuud II. Hart.
Practically everj vehicle in town was iu use and by actual count
they numbered exactly the same as were used at the funeral of
the late Mr. A. Enos. Sevices were conducted at the grave by the
members of Haleakala Lodge K. of P. of which Mr. Cummings was
a member. Flowers in great numbers and beautiful designs were
brought by many friends as a token of their love of their departed
Mr. Cummings was born on Maui. He was fifty-two years of
age. He leaves a wife ancf eleven children most of whom are
young girls and all but one of whom was dependent upon him for
Delegate Case County Attorney D. II. Case returned. Sat
Returns urday last from Washington, whither he had
gone as the people's choice as a delegate to Washington, to assist
Kalanianaole in securing the seventy-five per cent for public iin
provements througout the Territory.
Mr. Case proved to be one of the most valuable men sent to
Washington, and succeeded in swinging the Kansas delegation into
line in support of Hawaii cause.'s A careful study of the'report of
the meetings of the Congressional Committee before whom the
delegates appeared shows Mr. Case to great advantage and to no
one is due more credit for the good impressions made than to him
While the su-m that will probably beset aside for the construction
of badly needed improvements in the islands will bi for a shorter
term of years than asked for, yet when once started will surely be
reappropriated from time to time.
All must concede that an appropriation of seventy five per cent
of all the revenues for a period of five years Is to bo preferred to a
smaller sum for a longer period for the 'reason that our claim is
just one and it will be easier togetthe whole amount reappropriated
than to get the amount increased.
