THE GARDEN ISLAND, TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 1614
Hawaii Alien Territory?
Very slowly does it filter into
the American consciousness that
Hawaii is no longer a foreign coun
try. I had always supposed that
this was the result of ignorance an(5
misconception, but in the light of
a recent experience it appears that
the flag covers Hawaii only in part.
On arriving in San Francisco
the other day we were all rounded
up and subjected to a Hoard of Im
migration examination. Most of
us declared our American citizen
ship and were checked off, but one
unfortunate lady travelling under
my escort was subjected to grave
inconvenience and much discom
fort. Born and brought up in Cali
fornia she had unfortunately mar
ried a Canadian at the Islands; but
a Canadian who had become natu
ralized under the nionaichy and
should therefore have become, au
tomatically, an American citizen
under the Organic Act. Her un
fortunate and innocent admission
that he was a Canadian bv birth
outweighed nil later qualifications.
He was an alien-she was an alien.
She should have brought a pass
port. She would not be allowed to
land, but would be sent to Angel
Island, where all the Japs and
Chinese are sent for detention.
Of course, the least that I could
do was to go with her and see her
through. We were conveyed thith.

We found the Immigrant Station
an imposing place, where they do
things leisurely and with much
dignity. Officials came and went,
and looked at us, and saw us not
for a couple of hours or so. Mean
time I made the acquaintance of
another candidate for attention, a
young man of unprepossessing ap
pearance, and very limited educa
tion who had spent a few weeks in
Japan not enough to acquire a n
intelligent pronounciation of Yo
kohama. He had brought home
with him a Japanese wife, doubt
less for purposes that may be sur
mised. There had been some ques
tion about her admission and he
was waiting for the upshot of the
matter, which was that a senior of
ficial came and apologized for the
mistake as she was an American
citizen by virtue of having married
him, and assured h i m that he
would be reimbursed for some ex
pense he had incurred in the mat
ter. The situation struck me as
strangely anomolous. Here was a
Japanese woman straight from Ja
pan, under questionable circum-
