Senatorial Discussion of
Burton's Hawaii Amendment
Mr. Burton Is it not tbe pur
pose of the amendment
Mr. Foraker Will tbe Senator
allow me a moment's interruption?
Mr. Burton Certainly.
Mr. Foraker It has been stated
here two or three times that no one 1
has read this amendment except
only the Senator who offered it.
No one has had any opportunity to
study its language. A great many
questions have been asked, and one,
a very important one, just now by
the Senator from Massachusetts
(Mr. Hoar) I think we would a!
feel better satisfied in our consider
ation of it if we could now suspend
the further consideration of the bill
and let it all go over until tomor
row. Mr. Hoar I should like to ask
one more question of the Senator
Mr. Foraker Then the amend
ment can be printed and we can
have it before us.
Mr. Hoar With the leave of the
Senator from Ohio, I should like to
put a question to the Senator from
Kansas before he drops the subject
for today, if be has no objection.
Mr. Lodge I think the commit
tee on immigration, in charge of
the bill, tfould like to say some-
tuing betore tins movement is car
Mr. Foraker--I have the floor,
and I yielded to the Senator from
Massachusetts to ask a question.
Mr. Hoar It will (ake only a
Mr. .Foraker Very well.
Mr. Hoar I want to .ask the
Senator from Kansas whether if
these precise conditions at anV time
should be found to exist in any
part of the United States, namely,
that there is an agricultural or other
business depression, caused by a
scarcity of labor, and the price of
laborers who can be'got is so great
that you can not manufacture or
carry on your farm at a profit, and
the community want it, would he
be in favor of admitting Chinese
labor to any part of this coirfttry?
Mr. Burton No.
Mr. Hoar Very well. Then
are you doing to Hawaii as you
would Le done by?
Mr. Burton Yes. I will answer
the Senator. The white man will
labor on the Mainland and he will
not in Hawaii.
Mr. Hoar Put him in a case
where he will not.
Mr. Burton I understood the
Senator to ask whether if we had a
scarcity of labor on the Mainland I
would favor Chinese immigration
for agricultural purposes.
Mr. Hoar In Louisiana for in
stance. Mr. Burton No; because the
labor can be supplied by Anglo
Saxon or other white men. But it
can not be so supplied in Hawaii.
The labor in the fields in Hawaii
can never be supplied by the native
Hawaiian or by the white man. It
will be performed either by Chinese
or Japanese. It will be performed
by Orientals. Notwithstanding
that the Hawaiian is a native there;
notwithstanding that he makes the
finest kind of a laborer in many
directions, such as longshoreman,
and is a splendid worker in the
mills, and as a fisherman, and per
forms labor in many other fields, he
will not go out and work in the sun
in the cane field and on the farm.
So the question is whether, if they
are to have labor of this kind there
at all, it shall be performed by
Chinese or Japanese. That is the
practical question. It matters uot
what legislation .you enact or
whether you enact auy legislation
at all or not, the work of the plan
tation will either be performed by
Chinese or Japanese.
Mr. Bailey What does the Sen
ator say to a proposition which de
clares that a human being may
come to a certain country and re
main there as long as he pursues
the cheapest labor, but the moment
he aspires to rise to a condition
higher than that of the cheapest
labor, he must be expelled as unfit
to reside there? It occurs to me
Directory of the Prominent and Progressive business men In the richest coun

vertise it in this department. Write for rates.
that that is a strange kind of doc
trine in this age, where every ten
dency is to uplift the laborer, to
make the unskilled laborer's child
of today the skilled laborer of to
morrow. That is my theory of
dealing with the labor question;
uul I wU never consent to vote
that a man can stay in this country
as long as he pursues but the
cheapest and least skilled of em
ployments, and that the moment he
aspires to become a skilled laborer
he must be deported under the pro
visions of a law like this.
Mr. Burton That is because the
political policies of the distinguished
Senator arc provincial. It is be
cause he did not favor the acquisi
tion of Hawaii. He did not favor
the acquisition of the Philippines.
He does not favor the acquisition
of any tropical country.
Mr. Tillman He does not favor
Mr. Burton Therefore he is in
favor of a certain rule that is ap
plicable only to people who live in
a temperate zone. Now, if the
Senator can show me that the China
man who would be permitted to
come there to perform agricultural
labor is injured in auy way instead
of being benefited; if he can show
me that skilled labor is injured in
any way by his coming, and if he
can show me that labor in any way
is injured by the Chinaman being
permitted to come there for that
purpose, then I shall be ready to
withdraw this amendment. "But
until he can do that I think a fair
investigation will force the con
clusion upon everybody that it is to
the ben fit of the Chinaman who is
allowed to come, and who wants to
go away after staying a limited
number of years, and it is to the
benefit of the men who are building
houses, who are building manufac
tories, who are building mills, and
who are trading, and who are grow
ing cane, and who are growing or
want to grow coffee, pineapples,
rice, and other products. It is to
the benefit of everybody and to the
injury of no one except that it
comes in contact with a precon
ceived political theory; that is all.
Now, Mr. President, I have said
very much more than I expected to
say. Indeed, I did not expect to
say anything on the subject at this
Mr. Bailey One more question,
if the Senator will permit, me.
I have an idea that the early
settlers of New England and the
later settlers of some of the South
ern States did the African a distinct
good when they caught him in the
jungles of his native country and
brought him to this country and
put him in slavery, but I hardly
think the Senator from Kansas or
any other Senator in this Chamber
would argue that in extenuation of
slavery today. I have no doubt
that a Chinaman in the less thickly
settled Islands of Hawaii would be
somewhat better off than he would
be in the densely settled Kingdom
I am uot one of those who have
allways professed friendship for
labor. I have not always been able
to support the demand of the advo
cates of labor, I have never been
able to support the eight-hour law,
which denies a citizen of the United
States the right to contract for his
personal services, and I never will.
But I do think that I as sincere a
friend of labor as any good citizen
can conscientiously be, though I
may not be such a good friend as
some profess to be.
However, what I object to is the
moral, or rather the immoral, feat
ure the writing in a statute book
book of this country a law that
condemns an unskilled laborer to be
unskilled forever, which says to
