Hugh VI. Coke,
Those experienced The wireless message from llilo that
Woodsmen. experienced woodsmen from Japan
would probably be imported to work in the forests of the Maho
gany Lumber Company is considered one of the best jokes yet re
ceived. Any one who knows any thing about lumbering at all
knows that an experienced lumberman is able to throw the top of
a tree within five feet of any spot that may be required. This skill
is necessary to prevent breakage of the tree that is fellnd as well
as the trees that are standing and to facilitate ttie ro-noval of the
timber after it is down. On the coast of Washington and Oregon
ure thousands of such men who would be available especially at
this season of the year as lumbering is carried on in that region
only during the late spring, summer, and early fall. The writer
once saw two sawyers cut in two a three foot fir long with a saw
in less than three minutes, He has also seen many Japanese try
to use saws and axes in the heavy timber of Olaa, Puna and other
wooded districts but has never seen one of them use as much
judgement in cutting wood nor as much skill as a beaver uses in
doing work of the same class.
It would be no more foolish to employ a Hottentot as pastor of
Central Union church than to emply Japanese as lumbermen with
the expertation that they will do skilled work in the forests. Whila
it is true that these men are employed in the woods of the coast the
class of work they do is that of grading, skidding and such work
that requires physical strength and not judgement.
From a knowledge of the kind of work that Japanese do we do
not hesitate to say that in case Japs are employed breakage will be
great and the cost of cutting will be greatly increased and hauling
out made much more difficult and expensive.
What the company should do is to secure the services of experi
enced men to fell the trees, experienced sawyers, swampers, bark
ers, snipers, hook tenders, and teamsters.
If the Mahogany Lumber Company is to get the best results
possible it should employ a skilled overseer and then secure such
skilled workmen from the lumber woods of the coast as are need
ed. It is unquestionably advisable, from an economic point of
view, to employ such labor here that can be obtained for the pur
pose of doing the grading, skidding and work of that class rather
than sending to the coast for that purpose but the use of the ax to
fell trees is just thirty years out of date and it is reported that the
methods in vogue on Hawaii are even more ancient than that.
The employment of the right class of skilled white lumbermen
from the coast would enable the company to get more lumber and
ties, at a less cost than they are now doing while the employment
of such men would be of great benefit to the white merchants on
the big island and would doubtless be the foundation of a new set
tlement of whites of that island where such men are badlj needed.
The Irresponsibility Underthe above heading a communica-
oJ Wynne. tion from one Joseph Luddy address
ed to the Evening Bulletin which appeared in that paper in its is.
sue of the 19th instant.
The article says in part: John Wynne is now on the eve of his indict
ment, for causing the death of third Engineer A. F. McKinnon, on board
the S. S. Rosecrans, on the night of September 20th, 1907.
Detailed information of this unfortunate occurrence has been forwarded
to the secretaries of every Marine Fireman's Association, on Hie Atlantic,
Pacific, Gulf and Lake ports, and thq 47,0fi0 men that compose the Inter
national Seamen's Union of, America, will be watching with ba'ed breath
for the outcome of' f this comrade of theirs b a judge and jury in
far-off Hawaiian Te Those men will be anxious waiting for news
of the fate of their unfortuuate comrade, who lies incarcerated in a prison
in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, far from home and kindred, for the com
mission of a deed which he prepet rated when he was either non com pus
mentis, emotionally insane, or suffering from some kind of mental alioera
When I think" of the poor, struggling, gray-haired, widowed mother of
John Wynne, her only support, sitting bv the hearthside, unconscious of
her loved one's predicament, God forgive m UI break down, for it reminds
me of the agony that the mother of Jesus must have felt when she beheld
her beloved Son crucified between two thieves for the love of mainkind.
Mr. Editor, by the insertion of this urgent and pathetic appeal in your
popular journal, you will have the gratitude and appreciation of 47,000
good and true men; you will be placing before the pubic facts in the Wynne
case that have been gleaned by me from every available sou tee, and ma
God grant that the honorable judge and jury will leave no stone unturned
to arrive at a just, unbaised and unprejudiced verdict. On behalf of the
organization I represent I beg to thank you and remain.
JOSEPH T. LUDDY.
Would this man Luddy have the people believe that all of the
forty-seven thousand members of the International Seamens Uaion
of America wish the jury to acquit a member of their organization
who has committed one of the most cowardly and brutal murders
ever committed in the territory simply because he is a member of
their organization and because lie has a gray haired mother.
What about the mother of A. F. McKinnon? Has she not as muco
right to the lovo and protection of her son as the mother of a cold
Luddy is doing the prisoner infinitely more harm by his blas
phemous comparison of the mother of Christ to the mother of this
man who is either one of the most cowardly villians the criminal
courts has had to deal with or else he is an insane person that
should be put where he can do no more such acts as he has recent
There ia not a court in this territory where a fair and impartial
trial may not be had. If the defendant in this case was insane a
the time of his taking the life of Mckinnon be will doubtless be nc
quitted of the charge of murder. If he was not insane ho should
be hanged and the sooner the bettor.
The senseless vaporings of an ignorant sentimentalist will injure
the chances of the accused. Juries are always ready to listen to
reason but have no patience with the class of nonsense written by

it is, no man can say; or nation either.
Besides the complications that have
arisen between France and Germany
over the self-same trouble, there re
mains to be settled the supremacy of
Christianity of the modern day over
fanatic t?achiegs that have been
handed down from generation to
generation among the tribes of Moors,
though existing in the present day
five in the past wherein religious
matters are concerned. f
Morocco has always been a land of
fanatic doings. Their religion, or
what they term religion, occupies the
highest plane of the ti ibesmau's daily
life. The recent pitched battles that
have been indulged in between the
marines landed from the French gun
boats and the religious-crazed Moors
are only occurrences much magnified
from what Is ever gresent through
out that benighted country. 1 he kill

the only excuse given for committing
the crime is religion.

Copper Stock Brokers Must Pay
Honolulu, October 22. There is
much wailing and gnashing of teeih
among ttifc copper slock brokers on
the locul Wall street. It is not be.
cause of the great slump or because
magnates line F. Augustus lleintze
are going to the wall, that the loci 1
copper kiuglels are in fear. It is not
because the copper market is tossing
like a tempestuous sea. It is some
thing greater and far more serious
which has struck these manipulators,
aud the Territorial Treasurer is the
cause of all the heartburning.
For the Treasurer-has made up his
mind that the sellers'of copper seeur
lties are brokers of stock within the
meaning of the law, and he has there
fore decided to collect from every oi e
of these gentlemen the license fee of
$100 which the law demands that.

Hawaii Mot In Trouble Zone.
Honolulu, October 22. While the
linancial seas in New York are in a
tempestuous uproar it is not at all
probable that the effect of this dis
turbance will extend as far as Ha
waii. This is the opinion of the pro
minent bankers here.
"Do you think that the financial
disturbance in the East will have any
effect locally?" was asked C. M. Ccoke
of the Bank of Hawaii.
"I do not," he answered. It woulJ
not affect Hawaii as similar conditions
on the Coast would. The reason is
that our principal business with New
York is the payment of bills. Tl.ey
do not loan money on Hawaiian secur
ities there as they da on 'he Coast. If
there were such conditions on the
Coast it might affect Hawaii some,
but even if Calif jrnia should be dis
turbed to some extent by the linan
cial disturbances in the East, and
this may result hi the calling fur the
payment of money owing from Ha
waii, this would uot cause a panic
