Federal control? Let us discuss
I that proposition, and when we fully
1 understand it I feel that nine tenths
I of the citizens of this Territory
! (planters included) will say, let us
l have Federal control. A word to
' the planters here would not be out
of place. Everyone who knows
anything at all, knows that almost
without exception each plantation
has an agency in Honolulu; that
1 such agency is one or the other of
the leading mercantile concerns
there; that the Chamber of Com
merce is composed of those mercan
tile houses, and that each concern
is entitled to one member.
Therefore, we must take it that
I the planters are quite plainly res
of the 1 ponsjble for the action of the Cham
ber of Commerce. Now, was that
action prudent and wise? Was it
not rather hasty and ill considered?
Was the sending of W. O. Smith
to Washington on the heels of the
Senatorial Commission such as we
ought to expect from prudent busi
ness men? These are all questions
which suggest themselves, and
answer them how you may, I am
unable to see how any good from
such hasty action can come to the
sugar interests of this Territory.'
Let us look at the matter in
other lights. It is quite plain to
me that something is going to
happen in Hawaii something
ought to happen and the sooner the
better for all concerned.
Can the sugar corporations ex
pect that capital from the Mainland
and elsewhere is going to invest in
plantation stock while boys play is
going on in Hawaii? The capital
invested in such enterprises may be
divided into two classes.
1st. Investments in small
amounts by those who rely upon
some friend for advice and infor
mation, such as individuals of small
2nd. Investments in large
amounts by those who make a bus
iness of handling investments, such
as trust companies, etc., and capU
talists of large means.
The small investor has not the
facilities, and can not afford the ex
pense of making a minute investi
gation of all details, examination of
laws, etc. We might say, practi
cally, "he goes it blind," "just" for
luck." While the second class, or
large investor, pursues the other
course. Of necessity he must, and
does retain the most eminent legal
assistance he can procure. The
amount of his business warrants
the expense. He closely watches
the drift of public sentiment, politi
cal action, etc., etc.
Where the legality of transactions
are in doubt; where there is disa
greement and turmoil, he gets out
as fast as he can and stays out; go
ing where business is more safe and
Naturally he takes the local
planter at his word when he says:
"White men can not work in the
cane fields,' "If
tionality, or shall it be changed,
nutl if so, in what respect?"
And again, in report on thu Ko- J
hala Ditch question (sec page 4)
the Commission says:
"Until Congress shall provide
some different mode of dealing with!
the public lands in the Territory of
Hawaii and shall take the control
and disposition of public lands, now
illegally, and as your committee
believes, unconstitutionallv being
disposed of by the local govern-1
ment, and places the same under
the control of the proper land de
partment of the United States, no
license or charter of any kind
should be issued, etc."
Does any lawyer in this Terri
tory contend that the public lands
are legally nnd constitutionally be
ing disposed of? I have heard of
none nnd I do not believe such a
Coming back to where I started
Is any industry threatened by
turning over the public lands to
Federal control? On the contrary,
I hold that every industry and
every investment is threatened by
not turning them o'er nnd every
moment of delay is only adding to
the prevailing doubt, fear and
anxiety. Sugar stocks, business
of any nature can not stand up un
der such pressure.
No doubt, the legal experts em
ployed by capitalists and trust
companies discovered tin's state of
affairs long since, and while they
make no such conclusions public,
capital is withdrawn it is business.
Now what are the people here go
ing to do? Quarrel longer and
make times harder? I say, let us
put our heads together ami our
shoulders to the wheel, all prepare
for a long pull, a strong pull and
a pull all together. That, will put
Hawaii on the road to progress and
