Mr. Baker quotes from the local
t' 'papo,. school commissioners report
and from personal conversations.
Some of his remarks are as follows:
As I have already shown, practi
cally everything in Hawaii depends
,upon the sugar industry all the
wealth, the fine houses, the beauti
ful buildings, the smooth automo
bile roads, the extraordinary chari
table and benevolent institutions.
And the sugar industry depends
largely upon the labor of these for-

W. on the land:
it When Hawaii was admitted
the American union, no more
nese could bo brought in. Therefore,
. the Hawaiian planters turned to
tho next great source of labor, the
Japanese. An aristocracy does not
care a whit where labor comes from
or what it is, so long as backs and
biceps are strong, ami souls' are
sodden and unambitious. But a
democracy in its rough way desires
.'.not merely workers, but associates
, and neighbors. And the democracy
.oPthe Pacific Coast, where the Jap
anese were also crowding in, began
to protest and expostulate. The Jap
anese were coming too fast, there
was no time to get acquainted or to
arrive at mutual understandings;
they could not associate with them.
Consequently tho Japanese stream
' was cut off , both on the mainland
inland in Hawaii.
The planters had already been
bringing in, at large expense, ship
ments of Portuguese peasants and
this' was now continued, but the
supply was still inadequate. So they
tried bringing in ignoraut Porto
Ricans, ignorant Koreans, ignorant
t Russian peasants from Siberia, and,

Large Force Held Ready For Trouble
at a Moment's Notice.
That the United States has been
for months on the verge of interven
tion in the troubled politics of
China, was the information brought
by the army transport Sherman,
when she arrived in Honolulu. Ac
cording to officers on tho transport
tho United States government has
been holding a force of approxi
mately fifteen hundred men in
readiness, for immediate service in
China ever since last October.
Nothing was spared in order that
the expedition as planned in Wash
ington might bethoioughly equal to
the stern task it was. designed to
accomplish. Men -from other regi
ments in 'the Philippines were ex
changed into the infantry and cav
alry commands selected for tho
Bervice. A detachment of signal
corps men and another from the
hospital corps were detailed, out
fitted and received their orders to
hold themselves in readiness to
move at a moment's notice, as early
as October 15 last.
According to tho information ob
tained the expedition was to have
been made up of the entire Thir
teenth Infantry under the command
of Col. Frederick W. Sibley, a
squadron of the Seventh Cavalry
under the command 'of Lieut.-Col
William J. Nicholson, a battery of
field artillery, a detachment of the
signal corps from F company, and
a detachment from the hospital
corps attached to the military hos
pitals in Manila.
In speaking of the matter one of
the officers of the Seventh Infantry
said that whilo the orders were kept
very secret, some knowledge of them
leaked out in tho city while the
transport Sherman was lying at the
dock awaiting orders to hurry the
force to China, but that nothing de
finite was made public. The offi
cers and their ladies then on board
the transport were ordered to hold
themselves in readiness to remove
their effects at a moment's notice
in order to clear tho ship for the
mofe warlike force.
Tho commands selected by Gen
eral Bliss in response to the orders
from Washington were kept practi
cally under arms for several weeks
and then, as the apparent need for
intervention diminished, the strain
slackened and officers and men of
the detachments were allowed more
While nothing definite could bo

dently of the opinion that discretion
was their best policy, it is under

have sailed for Tien-Tsin, and was
to have followed pretty much tho
course taken by the allies during
the Boxer troubles back in 1900.
This time, however, history did not
repeat herself and tho commands,

Hawaii In For Another Airing of Her
111LO. -December 29. For the,
past couple of weeks the county at
torney's department and Sheriff'
Pua have been working quietly on
the investigation of charges, which,
it is feared, may work out into the
worst pchool scandal which tho
Islands have ever seen. The in
vestigation culminated last Thurs
day morning in the swearing out of
a warrant against Principal Wilson
of the school at Hilea, Kau. Tho
charge is one of criminal -assault
upon more than one of his girl
The Ililea affair was first brought
to the attention of the county
authorities a eouplc of weeks ago,
when Lillian Wilson, tho daughter
of the principal, was arrested to-
fgether with one Kahaule Aipu, a
young Hawaiian, for committing a
statutory offense- According to the
law, the parties in such cases may,
when. they legally marry, escape the
punishment otherwise meted out on
such a charge. It seems that the
Wilson girl and her lover tried to
take advantage of this way out of
then- trouble, when they ran up
against an unexpected snag in that
the girl's father declined to give his
consent to the match. As the girl
was only seventeen years of age, no
marriage license could bo issued to
her, except with the consent of her
parents. The Kau authorities
therefore decided to let the law take
its course, and Lillian was sentenced
to incarceration in the industrial
school for girls pending the rest of
At this point tho plot thickened,
for the girl protested that her father
had been guilty of a serious offense
towards her. Tho sheriff rushed
over to Kau, and arrived there just
in time to stop the girl's being sent
to Honolulu in the steamer.
Tho sheriff assisted by Deputy
Sheriff Kekaula, immediately pro
ceeded to make a thorough investi
gation, during the courso of which
statements wero taken from Lillian
Wilson and from four other girls,
all young Ilawaiians or part-IIawai-ians.
Tho allegations made by
these girls were so serious that tho
authorities wero for some tiine un
decided what nature of a charge
they should enter. The evidenco
given spoke in tho plainest of terms.
The girls stated, one after another,
that they had, at one time or an
other as the individual case might
bo, stayed in the same room with
Lillian Wilson, when Wilson had
given them wine to drink, after
which more serious happenings had
taken place. Tho character of the
testimony was such us to induce the
authorities to press a chargo of rape
against Wilson. The" Wilson girl
named no less than seven school
girls, who, she claimed, had been
staying with her and had been vic
tims of as well as witnesses to her
father's alleged offenses. Sho add
ed that her sister, Violet, was an
other sufferer, and that she herself
had run away from homo merely in
order to escape from her father.
Wilson is an American by birth.
