Hugh VI. Coke,
A Lutent Since the attempted murder of editor Rlieba by
Bvll Spirit.. Mori hundreds of Japanese have been in terviewed
on the subject and almost without an exception Mori is lirtniznd
while Sheba is condemned in the bitterest terms and the leaders
of the Higher Wage Association here state thac Sheba will be kill
ed before the end of the year. This statement is made positively
and without reserve.
Practically all of the leaders here have expressed the greatest
regret that Sheba was not killed and not one of them will admit
' that the act of Mori will lessen the chances of acquittal of MaUino
& Co. who are accused of being responsible for rousing the mur
dor spirit among the Japs.
All of the Japs talked with here are ready to contribute money
freely for the defense of Mori and it. is safe to estimate that thou
sands of dollars could be raised here among the Japanese for that
There is in most Japanese u latent murderous spirit that is most
dangerous when fanned into a flame and the work of the strike
leaders here has been most thorough in working up that condition.
The writer saw a leader of the Strikers Aid Association here this
week striking with his fist the picture of editor Sheba and asked
why he did that. He said, pointing to the picture: "Judas! Judas!"
lie said much against Sheba and claimed that if it had not been
for Sheba the Japanese would have won out in the strike for high
er wages. He claimed that Sheba is the paid tool of the planters
and that Sheba is getting the money from the planters that the
other Japanese would have gotten if it had not been for Sheba.
When asked to explain bow it is that it is wrong for Sheba to get
the planter's money and right for the others he was silent.
The Japanese here nre much exercised over the attempted
murder of Sheba and say that he should have been killed and the
assassin then should have committed suicide. In Japan instances
of this kind are common.
The Japanese are an industrious, progressive people and have
many traits of character that compell admiration but when once
agitated over any matter of public import are as cold blooded a
murderous lot as any race on earth. K
It is idle to say that the seeds of crime that have been sown will
not bear evil fruit here. It will probably be years before the anar
chistic teachings of the leaders will be stamped out. Outbreaks of
this kind demand stern measures and it is well that the planters
realized the conditions months ago and began the importation of
different classes of laborers who would be free from the contami
nating influence of Japanese anarchists.
Reason Why Death Rate is
"Improper feeding of the infants
and children of these, islands is doing
more to wipe out the Hawaiian raee,
than disease," said Dr. St. Sure in
speaking of the large death rate of
"If you will look at the statistics of
mortality for Maui for the year end
ing June 80, 190S, you will find
that one fourth of nil deaths occured
in infants up to one year of age.
"There must lie some great reason
for this, ami I believe that nearly
all of the deaths, recorded as lieing
caused by various gastric and intes
tinal disease, etc, are due primarily
to the improper feeding of the in
ants and to their unhygienic sur
roundings. "A vast majority of the Hawaiian
children are weaned during the early
months of their existence, and put
upon a diet of condensed milk. In
some cases children are weaned dur
ing the first week of their lives, or
even the first day.
"While it is a fact that babies grow
fat and ltxik well on a diet of con
densed milk, this condition of health
due not continue if this diet is kept
up for any length of time, the child
mm in lHM'omes flabby and weak ami
takes on a condition of marasmus.
"It is not the quantity of food but
the quality and kind that aids in
the proper nutrition of a growing
child. A vast amount of food can
U eaten by an infant and still the
chilil will suiTer from starvation as
a great deal of the food may not be
digested but will remain in the
stomach and set up fermentation,
and intestinal troubles.
Maui, Hawaii, as second-class matter.
Editor and MiinaKer
AUGUST 7. 1909
"It is a wonder that any of the
children of the poorer Hawaiians
out live their infancy. No one
knows lietter than the medical man
the pitiably conditions of children
starving while being forced full of
improperly prepared food. Amongst
the poor Hawaiians it is impossible
to secure cows milk for their babies
and they are obliged to resort to
condensed milk. A little of the
milk is put into a small vessel and
hot water added. This mixture is
then set aside and will lie. baby's
diet for the day. Some of it is put
into a Ik it tie and baby takes this and
is given some more. If he does not
take it all, the liottle is not taken
away but is left by him to use when
he is hungry again. By this time
it is probably sour.
"One of tle greatest helps to the
future of the Hawaiian race would
lie in the line of educating the
mothers in the jirojier preparation
of foods for their children. A still
surer way would lie for the various
counties to take up the matter and
see if some way could not lie devised
to furnish properly sterilized and
prepared milk as is dune now in
many places on the mainland.
Parents who are too poor to purchase
milk fur their babie's are allowed to
apiiear every day at the dispensary
and receive a certain numlicr of
I iot tic of properly prepared infant
food, enough for one days feeding
and receive directions as to the pro
per giving of the food and the gen
eral care of the infant.
"It has Urn fouiu'd that this
effort is meeting with success where
it is used.
"I U'licve that much could U
done in this county to lessen the
mortality in infants if such a system
were to be introduced.
"It would save a great many un
dertakers bills and there would U- a
great many less funerals amongst
children, if more attention was
given to the education of parents in
the ways of feeding their offspring."
Olowalu Plantation Will Pay
Two Per Cent.
Honolulu, August 3. The direc
tors of the Olowalu plantation have
decided on a two per cent' dividend
starting on August III, the increase
being from one jier cent. The crop
has been completed and the plan
tation turned out ISM tons of sugar
for the season as against the esti
mate of seventeen hundred tons
made by Manager (Jeorge (Jibh. The
affairs of the eorixiration are in a
most prosperous condition.
The Waianac plantation will run
aUuit 10(11) tons over the estimate of
Manager Frederick Meyer, according
to a statement made this morning
by J. M. Dowsctt- In speaking of
the affairs of the plantation Mr.
Dowsctt said :
"The estimate for this season was
5,500 tuns, but we should have
about 1(100 tuns more when the
grinding is completed. At present
aUmt (KHK) tuns of sugar have been
ground. Mr. Meyer is now working
on planting and grinding together
and, on account of the shortage of
talior, we are only grinding from one
to two days each week. We are cut
ting for seed and for grinding nt the
same time anil with the small force
which we have at work cannot do
as much as we would under ordinary
conditions. Everything is in very
good shape, however."
Marine Throws Himself Over
Honolulu, August 3. Arriving
with one passenger less than she
had on board when leaving Nagasa
ki, the V. S. army transport Logan
docked early this morning and will
leave from this jxirt for San Francis
co this afternoon at 4 o'clock. The
exception was caused by the suicide
of Gerald Bennett,, a private in the
U. S. Marine Crops jumping over
board on July 28. No particular
reason is given for his suicide,
though he had Urn despondent for
Bennett chose the time to drown
when it would be rather spectacular.
In the middle of the afternoon,
when the deck of the transport was
crowded with the soldiers and
marines who are coining back from
duty in the Philippines, he walked
up to the side of the vessel and
camly vaulted over the rail. A
number of his comrades saw him
and gave the usual alarm. Buoys
were thrown over the side at once
and the headway of the big steamer
stopped as quickly as possible.
Boats were lowered and a search
which consumed an hour and a half
delayed the transport. Not a sign
was found of Bennett, who prob
ably hit his head against the side of
the vessel as he went over and never
rise to the surface.
Captain Hanson, the quarter
master captain, rcjNirts a very
pleasant trip from Manila. Owing
j to the inexperience of his wireless
operator the local station was not
picked up till late in the day and
the ofliccrs were glad to obtain the
local papers with the latest cable
news from the coast. The resigna
tion of Governor General Smith had
not been heard of and there was
considerable army and navy news
which provoked great interest.
