LABOR FOR HAWAII.
The Honolulu Bulletin labors
under a mistake when in cotnment-
inc upon the Tkibunk's editorial a
few weeks ago, it iutitnntcd that
Congress would no sooner let down
the bars for Italian immigrants
than it would for Chinc-ie laborers.
The only restriction placed on im
migrants from Italy or other coun
tries is that they shall not become
a public charge. There are hun
dreds of Italians and other nation
alities arriving daily at New York,
whose labor in the Hawaiian cane
fields might solve the labor prob
lem now confronting the sugar
The use of Italian labor in the
South has proved a success, and
these settlers are becoming valuable
citizens to the community. Like
the Southern Stales, Hawaii should
encourage the' right kind of immi
gration instead of hoping against
hope in the expectation that the
Chinese Exclusion Act will be abol
ished or amended. The Atlanta
Constitution has the following to
say regarding the class of Italian
labor in the South:
"The Italians have demonstrated
in Texas, Arkansas, and Louisiana
their capability as farm ( laborers
and tenants. Already there are
thousands of Italians on the farm
lauds of these States, and they are
doing wonders in comparison with
what the average negro farm hand
or tenant accomplishes. There is
in some sections strong prejudice
against Italians, but it may be stated
in their behalf that they thoroughly
understand the intensive methods
of culture, are not afraid of work,
are easy to get along with, and have
in them the making of good citi
zens. It is said they take very read
ily to cotton cultivation and are
able to increase production on a
given acreage one-third."
The correspondence resulting
from Govcuor Carter's mule kill
ing episode on Hawaii last spring
when on his tour of Hawaii, is
growing interesting. The Gover
nor claims he found the mule with
a broken leg lied to a tree and aban
doned. He and Secretary Atkin
son procured a gun and shot the
mule to put it out of its misery. F.
Brughelli, who claims to have been
the owner of the animal, wrote,
asking the Governor to recommend
the legislature to pay for the mule.
The Governor wrote back calling
Brughelli a fool or a knave. Bru
ghelli, nothing daunted comes back
and says the Governor don't know
when a mule's leg is broken because
a mule has to have at least three
legs to stand on and hence if one
was broken he could 11 t have got
one ol the remaining three ones
over the halter, as the Governor
says he did. Which, if the argu
ment is sound doesn't leave the Gov
ernor even one leg to stand on.
Volinuo Slnlilo lllrcli Otlloer.
The aimunl meeting of the Volcano
Slubles & Transportation Company, l.i !
lulled, was held on February lltli, 1905,
mid the following officers were rli-clctl:
C. C. Kennedy, President; J. A. 8coll
Vice President; A. M. Wilson, Secretary;
August Hamburg, Treasurer; H. N. Hol
mes, Auditor; nnd J. T. Moir, Director.
The report of Maimer Wright showed
nn Increase in the value of the properties,
mid that the business was in rt flnurlMilug
condition. The meeting was ndiourned
until March nth. when there will lie nit
other Director elected.
1IANUEK OF EXPLOSIVES.
A wttkr was received in Hilo
by the last mail from Delegate Ka
lanianaole, in which he mentioned
that he had succeeded in obtaining
an item second in the general Riv
ers and Harbors Bill, providing for
n survey and estimate for a break
water at Hilo. This initial step
was obtained after a very hard
fight, and our Delegate is now en
deavoring to persuade and has some
assurances that the Rivers and Har
bors Committee will come out a
year from this summer and inspect
both Honolulu and Hilo harbors.
This is the first step toward the
breakwater, and it is hoped that
the visit of the Committee referred
to, may bear fruit. At any rate by
the time they arrive the survey will
have been either fully completed or
under way. Now that Prince Ku
hio has started the ball rolling, it
is to be hoped that there will be no
obstacles placed in his way, and
that the whole of Hilo will unite
their efforts in bringing to pass
this much needed improvement to
The Reckless Handling of Dynamite
by Ignorant Japanese.
The Orlcutnl Indifference of the value
of human life, may have something to
do with their Inking such risks in hand
ling gunpowder and dynamite. Sheriff
Scarle's attention was called to the fact
very forceably Inst week nt the Hilo
Railroad depot nt the foot of Wnianuc-
nue street, when a Japanese laborer
picked up n truck lond of boxes filled
with dynamite and dumped them down
in a corner with the utmost, unconcern.
When remonstrated with the Jap replied
"110 pilikia, me sabel"
"I was waiting," said the Sheriff, "for
the departure of the train to go to Moun
tain View last week, when 011 my way to
Hilca for my family. There were five
boxes of stick dyunmite, labeled 'handle
with care,' which the Japanese ware
houseman loaded onto a truck and
wheeled into the freight car and dumped
into one corner. The pyramid of boxes
swayed to and fro, the topmost box
nearly toppling to the floor. Every in
stant I expected to see the entire ship.
ment explode, the Japanese, myself, the
car and the lower cud of town blown into
atoms. There was enough dynamite in
that truck load to have made n hole in
the earth where half of Ililo had been
before. I stood aghast at the'rccklcssness
of the man who could so fearlessly handle
such a dangerous commodity. When I
could sufficiently recover my breath, I
was able to say 'Why, man, did you
know that's dynamite you were carry
ing?' He only gave a laugh and said
'No pilikia, me sabc,' and proceeded
witii loading other freight. I am not
prepared to say that this mail was violat
ing any law in thus recklessly handling
this explosive, but had it not been that
the train was pulling out, I would have
arrested him on the spot as committing a
nuisance. Such negligence ot human
life and property, is little less than
criminal and there should be a law to
reach these people who do not protei t
the public from v hat might be a catas
trophe. "On the top of this experience, while
returning with my family on the Volcano
road, the driver of the vehicle which
contained my children nearly ran over
three loose sticks of giant powder left in
the road by the laborers who had gone
to their lunch. If these had been struck
between the wheels and the hard stones,
there would have been n loss of life or
limb in that carriage, wh.ch I do not like
to think of. Now, I propose to take
active steps to see that explosives are not
so loosely handled. livery contractor or
individual who deals in powder or dyna
mite, should impress upon Ills employees
and persons handling the dangerous
commodity, to handle it with care. To
be sure 'familiarity breeds contempt,'
they say, but the public safety should
not be menaced by the carelessness of
A Coffee Shop Farmer.
The coffee shop philosopher of
the Hilo Herald does not believe in
small farming because he once tried
truck farming way up the moun
tain and failed. There is n story,
that he wrote to the agricultural
editor of an Eastern newspaper ask
ing if guano was good on potatoes,
and got the answer that it might be
for people whose tastes wcic viti
ated with whiskey and tobacco, but
as for the editor, he preferred salt
and butter. Upon this the sage of
the coffee shop bought butter to his
limit and put a small roll in each
hill, carefully sprinkling the top
with fine table salt. Not a potato
came up, but a tew onions Old, as
the coffee pundit had planted a crop
of them for spuds. As soon as hesiw
his error, the mocha granger wrote
again and was told to take the on
ions out carefully, cover them with
bees-wax and put them back. To
kill insects, the editor told him to
soak the ground thoroughly with
kerosene and then set it on fire
He did as directed, with the result
that his crop was a failure, and, since
then the chicory savant has felt
as distrustful of small farming, as
the Bulletin man did of dairy fann
ing, after he tried to bring up the
office calf with the wind pump used
to increase the circulation. Sun

It is gratifying to notice the in
terest which the members of the
Young Men's Republican Club take
iu matters, other than strictly po
litical. It was thought that after
the election the Club would
disintegrate, having no immediate
campaign to hold them together.
But the officers of the Club are to
be congratulated on the manner iu
which they are bringing their mem
bers to take an active interest iu
public works and general legisla
tion. The Club iu their report
have set forth in a concise manner
the needs of the several districts,
and there need be no necessity of
petitions on every little subject.
Our legislators know now to a cer
tainty what their constituents want,
and what is of the most immediate
need. There seems to be no rea
son why the Young Men's Repub
lican Club should not be to the
whole east side of Hawaii, what the
Hilo Board of Trade is' to Hilo,
l'orto Kico vs. China.
What might have proven a serious
complication of iutcr.tiatioual affairs, mid
what might have added another murder
to the criminal annals of the year, occur
red last Tliursday at nine miles, Olaa,
but fortunately through the Intervention
of neutral powers no blood was shed. It
seemed that Cruz Knandes entered the
home of his brother-in-law Citing Po at
nine miles and proceeded to whittle the
handle of his cane knife with the butcher
knife of his recently acquired relation.
The Celestial began to remonstrate at the
reckless manner in which his sharp
knife wns being used iu whittling not
only the wood but also the iron part of
the cane knife. The Porto Kicau think
ing it below his dignity to be called
down by his brother-in-law started Iu to
carve him up with the cane knife, but
fortunately the by-stauders with n short
struggle succeeded iu disarming him,
His trial is now 011 before Judge Ilapni
iu the District Court.
