What the Governor Says In
In regard to Sailors and Shipping
the Governor says:
"There has been an unusual scar
4ty of seamen in port during the
r s jgar shipping season and ships leav
Ing port, while they have not been
shorthanded as to numbers they have
shipped inexperienced men, many of
whom were Japanese and Porto
Ricans. The reason for the shortage
of seamen may be traced to the large
amount of public work that has been
under way in the city for the past
vear. on which manv seamen obtain
"A feature in shipping circles that
has been in no way a credit to the
port has been the usual amount ot
litigation between season and vessels,
During the month of May last there
were five cases tried in the u.
Court against vessels or the sugar
fleet. Four of the cases have already
been deciuod In favor of the defen
danti, while the fifth case Is pending
The parties bringing suit have been
put to practically no expeuse while
the vessels have been compelled to
defend trivial suits at an expense of
hundreds of dollars.
"It is of interest, now that it is
well known (act that the sailing fleet
ot the past is soou to be cvowded out
bv the steamers to state that the
office of the U. S. Shipping Commis
sioner paid out to seamen of sail
ing vessels during the last six years
about t325,000 and only $25,000 to
seamen of steamers during the same
In regard to Federal Law work
the Governor says:
'It is gratifying to uote that dur-
g the year the number ot cases of
traffic of women materially- decreas-
Either the class formerly en
gaged in this traffic has grown more
subtle in its transactions or has to
some ex'.e-nt ceased its .violations of
"District Attorney Ureckons re
ports that this Is likewise true o
illicit distilling. The number of cases
terminated during the year was very
small ompared with previous years,
During the year there were In
tituled two cases under the Sherman
Anti-Trust Act under the direction
of the Attorney General of the Unit
ed States, Both cases have been at
standstill for some time owing to
the fact that the court has had under
advisement for a considerable period
some legal questions involved. It is
anticipated that a decision on them
ill be had at an early date."
In regard to the Yellew Fever
problem which is at present confront
ing the Quarantine officials ' the lol
lowing is in the Governor's report:
"The prospective, opening in De
cember of the Tehuantepec route,
over which Hawaiian sugars will be
transported to the North-eastern
States and general merchandise
brought as return cargoes will create
Quarantine problem of the greatest
importrnce to the people ot Hawaii.
ThU quai antine problem Is caused by
certain factors, namely the disease
yellow fever, its intermediate host,
the Stegomifia mosquito; the actually
or presuro&bly Infected Tehuantepec
Peninsular: the infectible Territory
of Hawaii; and finally the connecting
or controlling influence, the trans
From the Japanese Press.
Under the head, "Gems from the
Japanese Press,' last week the Ha
waiian Japanese 'Chronicle furnishes
the following: Copy is followed here:
Chill politely invites Japanese to
come there. Jrier productions are
abundant and manufactures pros
perous, vvhv not abandon such a
country as California and go South,
n order to develop those places for
the benefit of both Japan and Chill
Most of the European laborers in
San Francisco are said to be sea law
yers, and naturally fond of liquors,
while the Chinese are doing nothing
but saving money. The Japanese, on
the contrary, are studious and are
takinsr on American customs, and
wearing American clothes.
A certain member of the British
Parliament asked the question, "what
if America and Japan open hostil
'Would there be a carryiug out of
the articles in the treaty making the
He was certainly a passionate man
The "Londou Times,"stated that if
Americans believe that.it was improp
er to sit with Japanese, then the
Japanese, also, will believe the same,
But we are not so narrow-minded yet,
"Times' also stated that if the
Japanese decline to handle, or buy,
American goods, the damage to the
United States will be much grate
than that of the Chinese boycott,
But the Japanese will never answer
them in such a rude manner. Still
trade is affected by rumors of war
If Californiansdo not obey the con
stitution of the United States they
are nothing but rebels, and the gov
ernment should treat them to hot
If It is beyond the power of the
American Government to quiet the
rebellion down, why not carry ou
that extradition treaty, and hand
those outrageous parties to Japan
Professor Takagi said that "the
life of the middle class Americans
similar to those of the Samurai's of
the feudal age of Japan. But thos
people of San Francisco are not that
The whole ot the Japanese press
published in San Francisco have
spoken ot Governor Carter as a most
wonderful man (in this age), and next
to thePresideut. His recent endorse
ment of the President's recommen
datlous are greatly admired both on
the coast and here, with the local
Japanese. Our Honolulu papers also
full of his good actions, and his re-
utation Is now es high as Maun-loa
among the Japanese residents or
It may be a better idea for Uncle
Sam to furnish funds, for the Pan-
Pacific Congress than to waste a pile
of money for useless fortification of
these islands, which never will be any
good in time of peace or war.
The Japanese people of Hawaii are
believing that there will be no war so
long as that wonderful man Roosevelt
But in case war breaks out, unfor
tunately, Japan will not bombard
these islands or even throw a shell
into the cities of Cal fornia, but the
very first thing she will do, will be to
gobble up the Philippine Islands, to
occupy permanently, while her navy
ill keep off American trade from
the Pacific ocean, and there will be
many Togoes who will await the
rrival of the American"Baltic fleet"
and the "Rojestvenskies" will not be
able to enter the Japan sea.
And so the Japanese will be victori
ous once more.
The American Japanese Alliance
will keep this world at peace as long
as it ran. It is certainly too bad for
Uncle Sam to loose his best pu ils on
account of those blind, half crazy
people of the coast.
Consul" Sai to has returned from his
uccessful mission to the big island,
where be has been telling the Jap-
nese laborers not to leave Hawaii.
We hope his work will bear good fruit
next spring, and stop some of them
from going to the coast.
Those newly arrived Portuguese
will no doubt follow the example of
the Molokans, and will soon add more
population to California.
They are good laborers, but not
good enough to stay with the plan
The Hawaiian Board of Immi
gration ought to have furnish nice
rooms for those eight Portuguese
families in the Young Hotel, and fed
them with a square meal. Then they
might have been satisfied and no kick
They want free wine with every
meal, and lime juice brought to the
field, thick bean soup, well cooked
r.ce, macaroni on the side.
Oh mammal What nice immigrants
Cut up these Government lands,
and give it to the Japanese farmers
to live on his whole life time under
some special regulation.
They can develop these islands, and
raise future American citizens tas
most of the Portuguese will not do).
