WHAT HAUUKNT SAYS.
Herein the Opinion (Htcii Him
Commissioner General Sargent
gave out the following interview on
his arrival in San Francisco:
"I went to the islands primarily,"
he said, " to arrange for the estab
lishment of an immigration station
at Honolulu, for which we have an
appropriation of $30,000. Through
the courtesy of the steamship offi
cials I arranged for the establishment
of temporary quarters for the ex
amination of immigrants, which
will prove a great advantage to the
service, and I am taking back to
Washington preliminary plans for
the erection of a permanent station.
When our permanent quarters are
erected wc will have a station pro
vided with facilities for the prompt
and efficient handling of the busi
ness. "I devoted considerable time to
an investigation ol industrial con
ditions in the islands and made an
exhaustive inquiry into the ques
tion of plantation labor. I have
not formed any conclusions, how
ever, which I can make known
at this time. I told the plantation
owners, the labor union, the Mer
chants Association and other per
sons and interests concerned in the
labor question that I would be
pleased to hear anything they had
to say on the question, and I have
gathered an abundance of informa
tion, oral and written, which I will
submit to my superior officer when
I return to Washington.
"To accept the statement of the
plantation owners, there is a crying
need for cheap labor on the planta
tions if the sugar industry is to be
carried on and developed on a pay
ing basis. Natives and white labor
ers will not work on the plantations
at the present rate of wages. Ne
gro labor has been found unprofita
ble, so I am told, and the planta
tion owners have to rely upon Asi
atic labor for irrigating,, growing,
cutting and stripping the cane. Chi
nese, of course, are no longer ad
mitted to the islands, and as mat
ters stand the plantations have to
rely largely on Japanese, to whom
there is considerable objection.
"While I was in Honolulu one
ship arrived with 200 Japanese,
and they were promptly engaged
and sent to other islands to work
on the plantations. This would
seem to bear out the statement that
there is a strong demand for labor.
All the Japanese that arrive in
the islands can find ready employ
ment, but the trouble is that they
do not stay on the plantations.
After working for a few weeks the'y
give up their jobs and look for bet
ter places in other lines of industry.
Many of them come to the United
States. This is where the labor
unions in Honolulu get in with
their kick. The members of the
labor unions in Honolulu, repre
senting the various branches of
bkilled labor, tell me that the Jap-
panese are forcing their way into
all of the trades, to the injury of
white and native artisans, who are
being crowded off the islands by
the competition of the Asiatics.
.They point out to me that numbers
of white citizens and residents of
the islands are constantly leaving,
because they are being crowded out
by the Japanese. If the Japanese
laborers who go to Hawaii would
stay on the islands the labor situa
tion would become greatly simpli
fied. They will not stay on the
plantations however, and the prob
lem thus presents serious complica
tions. "The plantation owners are eager
for some amendment of the law
that will permit Chinese laborers
to be imported under contract or
certain well defined restrictions for
work in the cane fields. They
tell me that they think the Govern
ment ought to be sufficiently alive
to the necessities of tlie situation to
permit Chinese to be brought over
to Hawaii for a fixed term of ser
vicesay three to five years the
Chinese to be, returned when their
term of service is concluded. They
say the Chinese could be kept on
the plantations through the adop
tion of some arraugeMeut for the
prompt return to China of all delin
quents found off the plantations.
Certain representatives of the labor
unions have said to me that they !
would he entirely .satisfied with
such an arrangement, but on the ,
whole the labor unions are opposed
to any further introduction of Chi
nese. The labor unions at the
same time, are lighting for the en-1
actmeut of a government regulation 1
requiring all work of a public char-1
acter in the islands to be perfomed
by either native or white labor.
"The labor situation in the islands !
is certainly serious, but the best I !

Mr. Sargent expects to remain in
the city about four days to look
after immigration matters here, and
will leave for the Pacific Northwest.
Kansas City, May 8. By a deci
sion of the Circuit Court of this
city the aristocratic members of a
church have no legal right to deny
a humble worshiper the occupancy
of a seat among them. The Con
gregation Gomad Chesse, a Jewish
synogague congregation, was sued
by Samuel Graves, a pawnbroker
and jeweler., for $65, the value of a
pew which he had agreed to sell to
H. Jagota, a shoemaker, and the
court rendered a judgment against
Before luiying the pew from
Graves, Jagota, like all of the
poorer members of the congrega
tion, had occupied a seat in the rear
of the church. When Jagota with
his family attempted to enter the
aristocratic section where his new
pew was located he was met by the
president of the congregation, who
told him that he could not sit iu
that section. Jagota pushed by,
determined to assert his rights, but
when he reached his pew he found
its entrance blocked and barricaded
. In the face of this opposition
Jagota abandoned his claim to the
pew and refused to pay for it.
Thereupon Graves brought suit
against the congregation officially
to recover the amount he lost be
cause he was unable to deliver to
Jagota the pew according to con
