Hulhlcrs mill Traders on Citizen
Lnlior Problem. ,
Honolulu, May 12. -The -Build'
crs mid Traders' Exchange nfay
meet this week with Commissioner
of Immigration Sargent to dhcuss
what can he done to get the Federal
departments to take the same stand
as the Exchange has induced the
Territory to take on the labor situa
tion. Only citizens of the United States
or those eligible to become citizens
of the United States can now be
employed as skilled laborers on the
local public works, and the same
rule applies to unskilled or common
labor, except that in cases of em
ergency alien labor may be em
ployed temporarily only, but the
use of such labor is so hedged about
with heavy penalties for violation
of the law that the emergency is
likely to be patent to every one be
fore any official will dare authorize
its use. An authorization not based
on an emergency renders the offi
cial, as well as jthe general or sub
contractor, liable to a fine of not
less than ten or more than one
hutidred dollars for each man and
The Exchange hopes to find out
just the way to secure the same re
quirements for Federal work at the
Naval Station, Pearl Harbor atid
the Army post. The fact, that
such an order from the President
would be "developing the Territory
along traditional American lines"
as recommended by President
Roosevelt is considered a strong
argument in its favor. The ques
tion is the best way to get the mat
ter to the attention of the President
The Exchange realizes that the
question of who shall do the Gov
ernment work in this small Terri
tory is too small a matter to catch
the President's ear were it not for
the fact that the Americanization
of these Islands is at issue. To
draw 2,000 Asiatic laborers 'from
the plantations to work at Pearl
Harbor would not only deprive the
plantations of needed help, but
would deprive Honolulu merchants,
real estate men and contractors of
the non-plantations of needed help
but would, be sure to spent here,
many of them buying property and
building homes and becoming a
permanent asset. Judge Estee
figured such men worth $1,000
apiece to the community; 2,000 of
them would add, at that rate, $2,
000,000 to the assets of this Terri
tory, an item in the Americaniza
tion of Hawaii which the Exchange
believes the President will consider
if properly placed before him.
The Exchange had the matter
up nearly two years ago, when Ad
miral Merry started the work at the
Naval Station. A committee of
prominent contractors called on the
Admiral, but received no encourage
ment whatever. The Exchange
feel that Mr. Sargent will at least
Hsteu to their request, and, on ac
count of the backing which the
Federated Trades will give the pro
position, they hope to accomplish
The matter of employment of
citizen labor on semi-public work
was well discussed by the Board
last night. Much favorable com
ment has been heard in the Ex
change and the labor organizations
of the stand L. B. Kerr has' taken
in requiring only citizen labor on
his new dry goods store on Alakea
street. The Odd Fellows also came
in for the same good-will on ac
count of the requirement that citi
zen labor must be used in their
new block. The secretary was in
structed to take the matter up with
the trustees of the baseball grounds
and the Y. M. C. A. atid Y. V. C.
A. in relation to their Wahiawa
bungalows. The Exchange takes
the broad ground of not fighting
the Oriental 011 account of his race,
but solely on account of his habits
of life. When a Chinaman or Japa
nese is willing to live like an. Am
erican, bring up his family on the
American plane of living, and spend
his money like an American in
American stores, he ceases to be a
detriment to American labor and
takes his place with other natura
lized and Americanized foreigners.
It is a fact that so few Orientals are
willing to do this that comes so
close to drawing tacial lines in the

There was a full meeting of the
Board of Directors of the Builders
and Traders' Exchange last night
and an enthusiastic session was
held, lasting until nearly 1 1 o'clock.
The Finance Committee reported
the secretary's book for the fiscal
year had been audited and he was
re-elected for another year. They
also reported the Exchange to be
in a position now to reduce the
dues nearly one-half. An amend
ment to the by-laws placing the
initiation fee at $5 as long as the
membership is within tlie 100 limit,
was recommended to the Exchange.
The system by which members can
use the influence of the Exchange
is quiet and friendly but very effec

Honolulu, May 14. The House
passed its first regular appropria
tion bill yesterday, that providing
for the six months' expeuse current
appropriations, and advanced the
emergency measure before' it fin
ished the day. That no more was
accomplished was due in large part
to a seeming fog over the minds of
the members as to the course to be
followed in the cutting up of the
appropriations for the loan measure,
The only incident of interest dur
ing the day was the declaration of
Kumalae that he knew that a head
of a department had said that he
would award contracts for public
work as he pleased, and not as the
House wished, and when called to
account by other members, the
statement branded unless proved,
Kumalae simply contented himself
by hiding behind the prerogative
of his position. The result was
that there was a waste of time with
out definite accomplishment.
The House by a vote of 15 to n
passed the appropriation of $10,000
for advertising, as suggested by the
committee, and this after having
put into the bill a provision for
$6,000 for 50,000 copies of "Fraz

which has been endorsed by the
The Senate finally finished work
on the six months' salary bill yes
terday and it will reach the House
today. The eighteen months bill
also passed second reading, and. will
probably be finished today, which
will leave the Senate with no work
to do. Yesterday's session was
characterized chiefly by the Senate
putting back to the old figures the
salaries previously reduced.
