regard to tho Chinese laborers being
brought into the territory.
The bill received so much opposi
tion from Samuel Gompers, president
of the American federation of La
hoi, that it was thought best to refer
L back to tho House labor commit
too for reconsideration. But tho com
mittee again endorsed it and reported
tho bill out.
The bill is now being presented to
tht Senate. If it passes this body

Many people o Influence who for

business men in various parts of the
states but members of Congress as
well. One of tho best converts to
tho bill that lias recently been mado
is John Francis Neylan, editor of tho
San Francisco Call. Mr. Neylan has
opposed tho bill vlgourously hereto
fore and it is now believed he will
back it just as ardently.

v.hoie Pacific coast is aroused over
tho Asiatic exclusion question and
will no longer bo denied. Any ef
fort to bring more Chinese any

ly causes alarm. I am sorry to say
that I think that tho people of Call-
ferula look upon Hawaii's labor re-
l'cf as a subtcrfugo to obtain cheap
s.ibniissivo labor amounting to peon
age and this was more or less my
view at tho time of my arrival In
Honolulu. While I was opposed t,o

in favor of it now and when I return
