Once more, says the Advertiser, grow
ers of bananas, both in Hilo and Honolu-
lulu, have to stand a loss 011 their ship
ments to San Francisco. Not so long
ago the Knterprise left hundreds of bun
ches on the wharf at Hilo, claiming they
could not carry all that had been deposit
ed there, nnd they rotted. Now comes
the news from San Francisco that because
the steamer Knterprise towed the barge
Santiago from Hilo to San Francisco,
and was so long In making the trip, hun
dreds of bunches sjoiled nnd were thrown
thrown, into San Francisco bay. The
vessel arrived there September 12, hav
ing been eleven days on the run. All
the decayed bunches were thrown over
board, and from Howard street wharf to
a point off Lime Point the bay was dott
ed with bad fruit.
From reports received on the return
trip of the steamer which arrived Satur
day morning, it Is learned that in nearly I
every instance the decayed fruit spoiled
from damp wrappings nnd not from nny
delay in transportation. Much of the
fruit was discovered to be "wet" wrapped
at Hilo before being placed aboard the
S. S. Knterprise and the local agent ac
cepted such bunches only at owner's risk.
As a consequence the loss, if any, sus
tained must fall upon the shippers, who
carelessly wrapped their fruit, and not
upon the transportation company. It is
stated that one day extra required to
tow the barge Santiago to the coast, was
not sufficient to hnve caused the gent
loss from spoiling of the last enrgo of ba
nanas aboard the S. S. Knterprise.

An Onirlul From Knren so Finds
Ills Countrymen Here.
"1 find the Koicnn laborers sitisficd or
reconciled lo their conditions."
Thus spoke Secretary S. II. Yoon of
the Foreign Office of Korea who was re
gistered nt Hotel Demosthenes, and who
Is 011 n special mission from his govern
ment to inquire into the condition of
Korean lnboreis in Hawaii. Secretary
Yoon Is accompanied by Rev. John W.
Wadmati, who is conducting n Korean
Mission in Honolulu nnd is pastor of the
First M. K. Church. Hccatisc of com.
plaints which found their way back lo
the home government as to the treatment
of Korean laborers, especially in Yucatan,
the Kmperorof Korea suspended emi
gration to Mexico nnd Hawaii, anil in
order to ascertain the exact truth of these
reports, Secretary Yoon is making un
official visit to Hawaii and Mexico.
"There nre 13,000 Korean lnborcrs in
Yucatan," said Secretary Yoon, who
speaks Kngllsh with fluency, "engaged
In the sisal Industry and approximately
7,300 Korean laborers who hove come to
the Territory of Hawaii since 1902 when
the first exodus of Korean laborers left
their homes. My counlmncn nre not
naturally travelers or of a roving distiosi-
Hon, and have largely jemaincd within the
confines of their own country. Hut
beguiled by the attractive stories of op
portunities elsewhere, they came to Ha
waii and to Mexico with the permission
of the home government. Hither fiom
disappointment or other cause, reports
have come back of their dissatisfaction,
and in May ull emigration was suspended.
My mission is to find out, as far as possi
ble, the condition of the Korean luborcrH
"Generally I can say the Koreans cm-
ployed on the plantations arc satisfied or
arc reconciled to llicir surroundings.
There does not appear to have been any
cases of cruel or harsh treatment, the
gravest charge being abusive language
by sooni of the overseers. I found the
Korean quarters ns comfortable as could
be expected on most plantations and
every consideration shown to make them
happy and comfortable. Unfortunately,
many of those brought here were re
cruited from the trifling, shiftless ne'er-do-wells,
who are not satisfied lo remain
anywhere even in their own country. The
rest appear to be satisfied with the treat
ment they receive or reconciled to their
conditions. I shall so report to my gov
ernment, and believe a relaxation of the
present rule prohibiting all emigration
will be adopted "
Secretary Yoon and Rev. Wadman
made a tour of the various plantations
along windward Hawaii and left Friday
to visit Maul. After finishing his iii
vestigation of conditions In the Territory,
he will proceed to Mexico in pursuance
of instructions from his government.
