calling the meeting, and after a few introductory
remarks by the Chairman, cordially inviting all
present to take part in the duscuiwiona, and pro
lwe any plana which they may hare to meet tbe
present preming supply fur labor on the planta
tion. Mr. Wilder offered a scries of resolutions
for the consideration of the meeting, as follows :
Rttotvft. That a supply cf labor Is absolutely
BrcrMutry for the jricaltur&l interest cf this coun
try, upon which our hope of proeperitr depends.
RfsolttJ, That, in the opinion of this meeting,
stnpply must be sought in lnign countries.
Rfitl rt'I. lbt tbe Chinese laborers in this coun
try tave, as a rule, been Cuthful. indoatrioas. ami
riiahl ; that the intances to the contrary have
t-n the exception, not the rule ; and that, though
tb: ai(fin heartily endore and sppr2te the recent
attempts of the Board of Immi,rratioa and Agricul
ture t in l ice an immignttion front the Polynesian
IiLwvl. yet we are of opinion that a aupply of wd,
arialtarI Uhnrers should be Bought also in China.
AWii, Tht the &jard of Immigration is best

S. L. Austin, of Onomea Plantation, Hilo,
write to the effect that be approve of coolies as
iborcr. He bad sixty-six employed, and tLxce
t mrtb of these were good, reliable, quiet and
HW:int men, tlte other fourth, were aged and
sit:k. In sending for more cooties, recommended
tltat no woraeu be brought. He advised that the
httoine of procuring uborers be continued in
tlte hands of the Board of Immigration. -
Cuupbell & Turton, Lahaina, say they em
ploy only native Hawaiian bare never bad
eoolies, and d not want them. Consider tbe
Hawaiian as gi laborers as are needed, but
acknowledge their inexperience a to coolies.
They anticipate that the need for more labor will
before long become pressing, and favor tbe intro
duction of native of the Snithcrn groups of
this ocean, to supply the want. The immigra
tion business should be kept in tbe bands of the
IMtrd, so long as they do the work properly ; if
not, abolish tho Board.
Dr. Lre sent a long letter, containing some
valuable information concerning the Japanese
people, among whom lie lia lived, lie said
there were great numbers of tlte Jjpaiiexe who
con Id he readily got t immigrate, and they made
excellent laborers. A Jaanse always sticks to
the avocation to which he was Bought up.
Tk work was the general rule with them, and
the plan work well. A million of able bodied
Japanese wonld be gtad to come here, on low
wages, and we should be prompt to open the
way ttr them to come. Measure should be
taken without delay for making treaty of
aunty and fxindrthip betweesj titi CarferBment
and that of Japan. Their coming bere in num
bers, and amalgamating with our people would
resuscitate ttZt nation.
T. II. Hob mo, of f Irove Ranch, Maui, says
that w muJt have more laborers, and wonld pre
I fer that Wjh supply should come from the ikmtb
Sea Inland ; bnt if we can't get them, we most
look to China or Japan. The prv eminent
authorities. In bi opinion, bai so far taken the
frAt course in the matter of immigration.
Air. Spencer, Cast Maai Plantation, bad native
laborers only, and got along quits well with
hem. In regard to the demand for mora labor,
which was becoming pressing, be thought that if
it should appear that private parties could sap
ply the demand better than eoold be done by
fCvernnMnf; theo that plan should be adopted,
aod he believed that government would in that
case approve of it.

I spoke highly of the Chinese as tbe cheapest, and
V- best of laborers. As to the question of our ray
ing higher wages for oar laborers, Mr. C. said
tltat the planters could not, without lots, pay
wages at a higher rate than a certain ascertained
sum per month.
C. Jones The price of labor will regulate

S. G. Wilder Campbell !z Torton employ na
tives alone, but even they admit that labor is be
coming scarce, while it must be remembered that
they have tbe only mill in Lahaina, and tltat the
natives must work with tbcm or not at all. It is
different in Koolau, natives are scarce, and grow
ing scarcer and leas inclined to work for tho
wages the planter can afford to give $10 per
month. As to free immigration, it is certainly
open enough now. But how will you encourage
it, so that it shall answer the necessities, what
plan is proposed ? One fact is apparent, the de
mand for labor is greatly in excere of the supply.
As to tbe Chinese, he did not believe they were
found to beany more vicious than other nations.
IV. I. Grem Noted Col. Jones idea about
introducing free immigration as important, but
spontaneous was tbe better word. Alter all, the
coolies brought lrre were quite free, for the mat-
. f m i -1 t
ter of tltat. They came voluntarily, under con
tracts made ami understood in China. We hare
other sugar-growing countries to compete with,
and we mnst organize, ami procure labor from
dark-skinned races, or shut up shop. White
men will not do as laborers within tho tropics.
Natives are not few be depended on. Sugar is our
A. F. Judd- At a lawyer, saw a good deal of
the working) of tbe labor system, as shown in the
court, and did not approve of it. Cannot a su
gar plantation be worked with a smaller force,
better paid ? He deprecated the store system, as
carried on on many plantations, whereby laborers
got into debt. stmJ advocated an entirely coh sys
tem. Tbe debt system has cruh-d the laborer.
Half tbe number of men, uud double t'f
ordinarr ware, would do doubletbo amount of
work. Agreed with Col. Jones, that sufficient in-
dueements were not held out to the natives t)
Judy WiJnnnm Di 1 not like the credit sys

said it was almost ixn possible to resist their im- I
portuititic to meet their various pilikia.
Grpt. Matte agreed with the last speakers as to
the prooeness of native to get in debt. Ho em
ployed native when be could, and puid wages in
proportion no tbe labor performed, but bis expo
rienee was that tbe higher rate of wage a native
got, tbe more be was inclined to squander bis
earnings and get into bis employer' uV-bt.
11. X Green Home plantation recently sold
at auction at a very low Cgure, would doubtler
ltave brought $10,000 more, Lad it not been for
the scarcity of reliable labor.
S. T. Alexander Coincided fully in the remarks
of Capt. Malee. Laborers are now paid as much a
can be afforded, on our plantations, nor could any
more work be reasonably got nit of the men than
now. Unless more and cheap labor is got, tbe
' plantations will have to etop. Under all the cir
cumstances of our situation, we must organize to
procure laborers. Tbe native population is rap
ldly dying out, and it is simply ridiculous to say
that there is native labor enough in the country.
Any increase in the rate or wages aid to laborers
would result in eating up the entire profits of
Mr. Peck, (of Brewer Sc Co.,) Could add
nothing to wliat the laid speaker l.ad said. It
was undoubtedly true that the native race was
dying, and we must fill their places. l"aying
higher wage, even if practicable, would not do
it. In reply to a question, tbe speaker said tltat
tbe system of giving advance wage originated in
Honolulu, it being a shipping oit. "
Dr. Judd Laborer can't be procured without
going abroad for them. ' Wages can't be safely-
raised above tbe preerot rates. It is true, bow- j
ever, tltat a good deal of labor is expended here
which might go much farther with proper man
agement. Instance California, where the economy
of labor is well under tood. Our native are not
educated to labor. If we want skilled labor, Ve
must Lwk Cir it abroad and pay high wage, but
for ordinary plantation labor, we must go abroad
also, and get cheap labor tbe best we can get
for our money. -
s F. Bailey, cf WaHuku Had none but Hawai
fane employed a laborers. Found them good and
efficient, after tbey bad learned how to work.
A to tbe question of paying higher wage a an
encouragement to natives, be thought it could
not be afforded, in the first place, and moreover,
a a general tbL g, native were not improved by
high wage, because, tbe more they received, the
more they were inclined to feel independent, and
lose time. Tbey are naturally disinclined to a
constant routine of every day work. That was
his experience would like to bear others on tbe
same suojcci. natives are uytsg vu very last.
S. N. Castle So ear rrowers would rather baveA
tbe native a laborers than any others if tbey were
Bat they cannot be bad, and the
present necessity i urgent. Tbe men now
engaged, are very unlikely to re-hip when their
term have expired.
IV. C. Jones said he was informed that at least a
thousand able-bodied native of these Islands
were now absent on whaling voyage. Why
could not these men, under a proper and remu
.Derative system be induced to remain at borne
and work on tbe plantations, instead of embark
lag in tbe precarioui and dangerous business of
whaling?... . . .
S. U, "Wilder said, tbe inducements to go in a
TyhaW, operated more powerfully on the minds of
1 the natives than thonc tltat could be offered by a
: plantation life. Tbere was the chance in the one,

thing to receive on the return, while the advance
given, enabled the sailor and bis friends to have
a gwod time for a week or so before ho sailed.

interested, m naddiBerent nationnlties as iarjorers.
, lairuiy am liable as a worker, 517 a montn, and
I no planter could afford to Tr that. As to
Chinese women, be considered them of no powible
ue on a plantation. He bad four Chinese
women, ana they coet him $1000 to feed them
four years, by his calculation. Chinese men
laborers, however, he was well satisfied with.
Never bad occasion to punioh them. They had
learned the language sufficiently to understand,
and work went on satisfactorily. These old
bands could break in the new ones to the routine.
Had some Jajneee, but considered them much
inferior to the Chinese laborers. They were both
unable and unwilling to work.
S. B. Dole Had beard the accounts given by
different individuals of the working of laborers
of different nationalities, and had noticed that
there was a wide divergency of opinions expressed,
some spoke highly in praise of their men, Iwth
Chinese and Japanese, and others again were
dissatisfied with them. Opposed the idea, enter
tained by some, that the natives are lazy and will
not labor. If proper inducements are held out
to them, they are as industrious as any people.
Called attention to the condition of Waimea, on
Kauai, where tho people, having proper encour
agement, had devoted their attention to rice
growing, and were thriving and prosperous.
A. F. Judd It is a fact that natives generally
prefer any other engagements to labor, except
those on plantations. Had known an instance,
in which some natives, rather than go to service
on a plantation, which chance was offered them
b the authorities, preferred to run the rwk of
; J 1
going to prison on a criminal charge. The na
tive idea is tliat they are about the same as slaves
when employed on a plantation, and heioo they
avoid it when tliey can. The subject of the
management of laborers, ought to be well ven
tilated. Don't oppress tho laborer. It would
be desirable to adopt a plan of different rates of
waes, apportioned according to the real and
ability displayed by tbe worker.
The Minister cf the Interior inquired of Mr.
Judd who Ite meant by 44 tbe authorities " giving
natives the opportunity o cngnge as laborer on
a plantation, and so be released jrom prosecution
on a criminal charge.
Mr. Judd stated that the alternative had been
offered by the Attorney General
W. L. Green Tic more foreign laborers that
ar brouht bere,
of course the more cousuutcra
there will be, and the natives who are producers
' must be benefitted thereby.
Rev. Mr. Alexander Free immigration, from
Eurojean countries, as advocated by some, was a
good idea, if practicable, but what inducements
bavo we to offer. There U a vast difference in
this respect between our ri:ion and that of the
ude that native labor is tbe best. Then we
fhould employ tltat class of laborers, instead of
going abroad for otliers. Let some prompt aud
effectual measures be adopted for staying tlie de
fease of tbe native race. Let ns devote our
nerzies to this end, and not thoughtlessly sacri
fice tlte momentary interests of tbe sugar busi
ness at the expense of other interests which are
or paramount importance, a oe planting interest
must come into competition with other interests.
C. J. Lyons moved to strike out that portion
of the resolution endorsing the action of the
Board of Immigration in bringing hither the
Pacific Islanders. Tho motion not meeting with
a second, the question on the passage of the
third resolution was put and carried.
On motion of Mr. J. O. Carter, the fourth
and fifth resolutions were transposed.
1. Dartlett Tlte labor contract system in vogue
bere, had been termed the obnoxious coolie sys
tem. People in every day conversation bad
spoken of buying and selling a man or a woman,
lie objected to this kind of phraseology, for it
was not fjunded on fact. One thing however
was evident, wo must have more labor, to sustain
tlte agricultural industries of the country. He
favored a fair and just system of contracts be
tween the employer and tbe employed. We do
no injustice to the native population by bringing
cheap labor here, but on the contrary, it will
tend to better their condition. The contract sys
tem is the best, but it should be carefully sur
rounded with guards. Had no fear of our get
ting too many immigrants here the more the
better tbeis presence will increase business.
C. J. Lyons Tbe present condition our labor
sw-tcm must be traced to the transition state
through which tlte natives, and are yet passing.
In view of our surroundings and tbe age in which
we live, we ought to jut ourselves as near a8
possible, in unison with the great and growing
country which is our nearest neighbor the
United States. In speaking of the contract
system as it exist bere, lie referred to Sec
tion 1A20 of the Civil Code, upon which our
coolie system is based, (providing for imprison
ment at hard labor of persons lawfully bound to
scrt ice. who shall refuse to serve as provided for
by Section 1419.) It was not the system war
ranted by the customs of free countries, except
ing perhaps, where they are intended to apply to
tbe shipment of seamen or guano laborers. He
did not object to labor coutracts as such, but to
Contract which are to be enforced by penal laws.
As to tbe phrases which are used ordinarily in
speaking of this contract system it was but a
legitimate result of the system itself. It dis
tinctly marks two classes the rich and tlte poor,
the planter and tbe laborer. and tends to keen

Theo. H. Doxies When be first came to these
islands, be was under conditions very much the
tame a tbe coolie. He waa under a contract to
serve for a certain number of jeers, and bis eon
tract could have been assigned to. a third party,
just as tbe Chinaman's can.
Dr. Judd The basinets coo-lition of these
islands remirded him of a ship at sea, which had
not tarn eocu ;h to do the r -eded work. More

we must have the power to compel the perform
ance of labor by our laborers. .
Judge Montgomery read Section 1419 of the
Civil Code, in regard to persons bound to service,
and explained its operation.
IV. L. Green explained the coolie system as it
exists in Peru, and showed that there was no
comparison with the treatment and condition of
laborers here. Ho advocated and upheld the
system as carried out in the British colonies.

The fourth resolution was then put to vote, and j
adopted, three di&enting votes'.
The fifth resolution, endorsing the Board of
Immigration was passed item. con.
The meeting then proceeded to the considera
tion of the sixth resolution, recommending that
the contracts be made direct with the Board, and
be assignable, &c.
A. F. Judd Opposed in toto the plan of as
signable contracts, as contrary to the laws.
I. Dartlett It ia unjust and odious to sanction
the transferring of a laborer from one master to
another, without his consent. It wns degrading
to human nature ; it was a system fraught with
danger to society, and be hod the meeting
would disapprove of it.
S. G. Wilder Foresaw danger, but in another
way. Let a Chinese coolie understand that if his
master died to-night, he would immediately become
free and discharged from his contract, and the
master's life wonld not be worth on hour's pur-
chaoe. Advocated tho provisions of the contracts i
which read 44 to bun, bis heirs, executors and as
signs." A contrary policy would lead to muti
nies all over the islands. The practice is legal,
and does no wrong to the laborer.
C. J. Lyons Yes there you sco the legiti
mate consequences of this penal contract tystcui.
S. y. Castle A law which would prevent a
man from making a contract to labor, such as he
deemed was for his own interest, must be tin un
just and oppreiwive one. Many of the plantations
are owneu oy corporations, unu nowever mucji or
often the management may change, the work goes
on with the sanio servants. A contrary course as
to single proprietors would be unfair.
A. F. Judd Tho Supremo Court of tho State
of Massachusetts has decided that a contract for
service is not transferable.
5. N. Castle Tho laws of Massachusetts are
not the laws liere.
S. D. Dole Opposed the contract system as it
exists here. It is not fitted to a free country,
and a hundred years behind the ago. Objected to
a svstem that reouired renal laws to bolster it up.
Lei us look to tho future, and consider what may
i s ne consequences p:ty year nence oi our pre-
i. Dartlett Spoke of the danger of the coolie
not thoroughly understanding the nature- of his
Judge Widemann No master would desire to
keep a servant who did not wish to sta.
John Montgomery Chinamen never complain
of being transferred. All this sympathy for them
is thrown away. Coolies have been known to ac
quire handsome projertics here, after their term
of service has expired.
IV. L. Green Any assignment by a master of
the contract should be made only with the con
sent of the Board.
C. C. Harris That is precisely the provision
in the Manahiki contracts.
A. F. JuddU it is right that the master
should transfer the coolie to some one else, why
should not the coolio have the like privilege of
choosing another master ? But it is unconstitu
tional, and makes a man a chattel.
C. C. Harris In case of the death of a master,
the Board retaiued the right to dispose of the la
borer, until his contract expiresi
The resolution was then parsed, whereupon the
meeting adjourned until Monday, the 11th inst.,
