Wliitchotisc of Asiatics on the Oo-knla-Kukaiatt
road contract. At
kinson favors the employment of
citien labor whenever it can bt
obtained even at an advance in
waes over what is usually paid
Japanese. In a letter ;ulrseu to
Supt. Holloway lie jive his views
011 the stihjert at length, slating
that when n contractor figuies on a
contract on the bisis of us'iiik Asia
tic labiir, lie tlicreby gains an nil
vantage over other bidders who
figure 011 citizen labor. He inti
mates that acceptance of bids thus
made savors of unfairness. He
suggested to Superintendent Hol
loway that the permission gi anted
to contiacior Whltehouse be revok
ed and if the latter be unable o do
the work, that it be readvertised
In response to this suggestion,
Supt. Holloway dictated the fol
lowing: Honolulu, T. H., July 9, 1904.
Hon. A. L. C. Atkinson, Acting
Governor, Territory of Hawaii.
Dear Sir: I beg to acknowledge
receipt of your faver of the 8th inst.
in regard to the employment of
uou-citi.eu labor on thcOokala Kit
kaiau contract awarded to Mr.
Whitehouse, he bei..g the lowest
bidder to sub'uit a tender in c n-
foruiitv with the specifications.
After ni.tiug the position which
you take in this nutter, I fed that
possibly you are not entirely fa
miliar with all the conditions per
taining to the awarding of this
contract, after careful consider ttion
of which, I altered the clause in
ourstardard specifications restiict
ing the class oflaborto beemployed
Ordinarily we insert the following:
"No Asiatic labor to b; employed
on or about the work."
I do not know whether you are
aware that this work has been bid
on previous to our last call for ten
ders, but offers were received on
March 28th, 1904, from four con
tractors, viz., I M. Whitehouse,
Benton cc Arioli, K. V. llama rd
and Claus Johnson. The latter bid
was entirely out of order and of the
others two specified to it-ie citizen
labor so far as available and Benton
and Arioli agreed to employ United
States citizens only.
The tender were as follows.:
Hentoii and Arioli, $40,168.67;
L. M. Whitehouse, $34,000,00; K
W. Barnaul, $29,085.00.
As the appropriation wns only
$15,000, I found it necessary to
divide the work into sections to
complete as much as possible with
the funds available, but before
teadvertisiiig for tenders I investi
gated the question ot labor very
carefully, consulting with Mr. Gere,
the Hawaiian Road Board, Mr. K.
W. Barnard, who has built n num
ber of roads in the district and re
sides in Hamakua, Mr. Howland,
who is entirely familiir with the
condictions 011 Hawaii and other
persons well informed in the matter.
The opinion was unanimous that
it would be impossible to obtain
citien labor, so I acted entirely in
accordance with the law governing
such matters as I interpret it by
simply requiring bidders to use
I all aviilableciti.eu labor and I feel
that this wit? to the bjsl interests of
the country at large.
1 You will see, therefore, that I
have practically carried out just
I what you suggest in the second
(paragraph of your letter and I can
not see how the successful contractor
secured any advantage over the
other bidders on the second call
for tenders. Ifurtherinore he was
not lowest bid ler, Mr. Birnard's
'figure being $1500 lover, but his
I tender was thrown out on the de
cision of the Attorney General that
it was not in order. The only other
bidders were Benton and Arioli
whose figure was $13,419.89 as
i against Whitehouse's $12,445, aill
I I do not believe that ttiere is any
question but that all thccoutrnctois
figured on using Asiatic lib )r, At
'the present time Benton and Arioli
1 are using nou-citueii labor on the
tS: VTisl ' . - .
Pallida- Volcano House contract
although they arc employing all
citizens available mid it has been
clearly shown that it would be im
possible for them to rely on citizens
The principal question involved
in restricting Mr. Whitehouse from
using Asiatic labor is now one of
law inasmuch as his hid being in
accordance with the specifications,
the contract has been signed and
his bond furnished, so I do not
believe that we can restrict him

tor will employ all citien labor
available, providing applicants are
willing to do a day 's work without
being allowed several hours to come
and go from their homes during the
eight hours which they are sup
posed to work, and I shall certainly
instinct the inspector on the woik
to keep strict watch and report any
failure to conform to the specifica
tions. On future work I under
stand that you wish it distinctly
understood that bids 011 citizen la
bor only will be considered irrespec
tive of the cost of the work and
I shall act in accordance with your
structious. Futher action will be
dc'ayed in the matter of the labor
on the Ookaln-Kukainu work until
I have had the pleisttre of hearing
further from you. I beg to remain,
C. S. HOLLOWAY,
Superintendent of Public Works.
Subsequently on July 23rd the
Acting Governor responded stating
that he had received information
from reliable sources that there are
fifty citi.ens around Kukniau will
ing to work 011 the contract at cur
rent prices, some of whom have
been denied work by the foreman
in charge, who is a Japanese. Mr.
Atkinson sees no reason why an
Asiatic foreman should be placed
in charge, when there are citizen
hi 11 as available for this work. He
regards this as an evidence of bad
faith on Whitehouse's part. He
"I want to see nil public work nccoin.
plished by citizens, and it is only on ex
traordinary occasions that iiou-cilieii
labor should be usid."
"If I understand the facts rightly, I
tike it that the contract with Mr. White
house was signed in accordance with the
specifications, and that n bond was fur
nished in accordance with the terms and
conditions of the contract, and I also
tike it that permission to use Ashiic
labor was granted after the contract was
signed and the bond furnished."
"I do not for one moment consider the
clause 111 the call for tenders that "Con
tractors shall eiup.oy all citien labor or
eligible to become citien that is avail
able, on this work," as giving permis
sion to Unsuccessful bidder to use Asia
Closing he expresses his opinion
that citien labor can be obtained
and thinks that the permission to
use other than citien labor should
In response, Supt. Holloway re
fers certain correspondence from
Mr. Albert Horner, of the Hama
kua Road Board, and also n report
of road engineer G. II. Gere as to
conditions making it impossible to
secure citizen labor in Hamakua
and expresses his willingness to re
fer the whole matter to the Hama
kua Road Board for report. To
this program Atkinson objected in
another communication, in which
''The question of refering the miller to
tue Roul HtMrd for futher action is, 110
doubt, a good idea, but it docs not change
my altitude in the least that the privilege j
of using Asi tlic labor should be ilh-I
"I do not think Mr. Whiteliouse has
shown good fillh in the matter by having
an Asiatic foreman in charge. Does he
mean to stale that there are 110 citien
liinas who are available for this work?"
"In conclusion, I would request that
you kindly take all steps to revoke the
privilege which allows Mr, Whitehouse
to use Asiatic labor."
I have the honor to he, sir,
Your obedient servant,
A. L. C. ATKINSON.
