OUR ISLAND CONTEMPORARIES
JAPANESE VIEW OF
The Independent, Uevlew, a Japnn
rse monthly published In Honolulu, Is
not nllopelher satisfied with the man
ner in which the plantation laborers
have been given an increase in wage
through the bonus system. Editor K.
"We congratulate the planters for
their prompt determination to in
crease the earnings of the plantation
men, before any serious or uneasy
development of the public opinion in
favor of the higher wages for the
plantation hands. We appreciate their
liberality and wisdom. Had the plant
ers been liberal enough to concede to
the demands of the laborers on the
plantations nine years ago, there
would not have been any strikes on
The various plantations on Onhu. The
planters remember well their bitter
experiences which they had at the time
of those big strikes, which, no doubt,
gave them plenty of wisdom and saga
city to avoid unnecessary indnstrlal
and social disturbances.
"W'V are, however, rather disarf
pointed in the following three facts:
"1. That the monthly wages have
not been increased nt all. It was a
public opinion among the working
men on the plantation that, they should
be paid at least a dollar a day working
ten hours, and we thought that the
minimum wages of the plantation
hands be paid to the amount mention
"2. That the bonus is not. given to
those who work less than 20 days per
month. We believe that true profit
sharing ought to be carried equally
to those who work for the production
of ounce of sugar, no matter whether
they work twenty days or less per
month. Even a man who works one
hour a day should be given the bonus
in proportion to his time of work.
Rut the new system has ignored en
tirely this most fundamental fact.
"3. That the demands have not
been presented by the laborers for the
higher wages and there has not been
any negotiation or agreement between
the planters and the laborers on busi
ness principles. Everything has been
determined arbitrarily and despotic
ally by the planters. The planters of
Hawaii are renowned for their gen
erosity and kind heart toward their
employees. Yet it is a general opinion
that there is no industrial democracy
in Hawaii, and that the planters are
the feudal lords over the tenants or
the plantation hands who are mostly
"We hope that the defects of the
wages system will be gradually re
formed so that all workingmen on the
plantations will be fairly and justly
given the profit of the sugar produc
tion rs well as the capitalists. The
way is, perhaps, quite far away; yet
we believe that we will have to reach
it sooner or later. The true Taradiso
of the Taeific must show, first of all,
the fair distribution of the income
from the sugar industry to the labor
as well as the capital. The Kingdom
of God on earth cannot he realized,
unless there appears the perfect social
and economic justice and fairness to
all producers in this world. The lead
ers of industrial democracy should
devote their hearts and their brains to
the campaign of education among the
iaber and the capital to bring indus
trial democracy to our world.

death when a huge rock rolled down
the bank beneath which he was work

miracle, say those who saw the size

which the man was removed.

PREPARE FOR S-ACK TIMES
It is gratifying to note that some of
the plantations of Kauai are taking
advantage of these prosperous time
to prepare for the loan years, which
will come in the natural course of
events. Improvements which are be
ing made, and planned, are of a per
manent character; and in one way
and another these estates are getting
themseves In such shape that their
expenditures for many years to come
will be confined largely to the actual
routine of growing cane and making
This plan may not be to the liking
of "get rich quick" stockholders, but
the legitimate investor and the financ
ier readily see the point and agree
with the idea. It means solidity for
an indefinitely long time, even in the
face of disadvantageous legislation or
It would be a fine thing if every
other business enterprise on the
island large and small did the same
thing. Prosperity is general. The
independent storekeeper is making
money as never before, and in all
other industrial ines there is unusual
prosperity. Now is the time for every
man with a business of his own to get
it upon a permanent, solid footing. As
sure as the night follows the day the
lime will come when conditions wi)l
be different; business will be slack;
moiw-y will bo tight In the islands.
The importance of present-day prep
aredness will then occur to all busi
ness men. Garden Island.
It is with hearty good wishes for
success that Hilo greets the an
nouncement that Maul will hold a
counly fair next. December. Anything
that Ililo can do to help Maui in her
ambition to make a fine display will
be gladly done. Hilo Tribune.
It seems a pity to waste money on
a National Guard permanent camp on
Punchbowl Hill, when a great sanit
arium, a recreation pavilon and park,
a big tourist hotel or school should be
located there. Why can't the national
guardsmen do all their driping and
shooting on federal ground, under the
eyes of regular troops? Folks will
be afraid to tramp around Punchbowl
when the camp gets going, for rifle
practice somehow spoils a spot for
sightseeing. The Service.

been (he matter of considerable in
