headquarters the existence of a
few people whoF"were afflicted
with the terrible disease of lep
rosy, on Uie Island of Kauai
prononcced Cow "Wai), in the
district of Kalalau. His report
was announced at- the regular
session of the provisional govern
ment, resalting in the sheriff
being instructed to g at once to
get those people and take them
to the health office for examin
ation, nvhcu if their cases were
pronounced leprosy they would,
be transported to the Island of
Molokai, a very fine place pre
pared, for their comfort and where
thej' are kept aloof from all other
So thesherjff prepared his pos
se for the work; they sailed to
Kauai, and thence to Kalaluu on
horses where, instead of taking
the lepers, the lepers took them,
killed the sheriff and another man
and wonnded another, so the dead
and wounded were returned to
Honolulu, and indignation meet
ings held, resolutions passed.etc.
etc. Then, the provisional gov
ernment resolved to send some of
the regular army with one piece
of artillery, and plenty of amuni
tion, etc. " So they loaded up a
ship and .off they went. Lnst
Sunday a report came from them
stating that three of the soldiers
wore killed. One of them was
killed by accident. He shot
himself the gun was strange to
him, he didn't know it. Another
one got his gun broken by a
wagon running over it while ho
was sleeping. They had the
grandest mil itary burial held in
Kanai at any time. A great
many guns were fired in honor of
the brave fellows who lost their
lives in an effort to capture a few
sick men and women, and the
provisional government was de-1-gtited
to learn that only one out
of three was awkward enough to
kill himself. The lepers are still
at large and the soldiers have re
turned. On the whole this country is in
- a.very bad condition. Sast year's
total product was less than 8,
000,000 and they don't expect it
to be near as much this year.
Annexation is the important
question here, but what country
will they get foolish enough to
sa1-: ''Hawaii, I will take yon
unto myself and pay all the ex
pense of keeping you, because
you are unable to do it yourself?"
Some people argue that this
would be a coaling station for
the United States in case of war
with Japan, China or some other
country down this way, where
United States ships could stp
and get fuel, but I say in case
they refuse lauding for coal come
in and take it anyhow, and take
the islands when you want them,
but the United States has no use
for them now, and the people here
are opposed to annexation.
Contract labor is the order of
things here, and the Japanese
and Chinese are tho principal
performers, and it is a great ad
vantage to the planters because
they have no fear of strikes or
disturbances. Under any other
condition but the present one it
would be hard for the sugar
planter ;fo succeed, because
Asiatic labor seems to be the
only kind that can continue to
perform the work in this climate,
aud the laws Qf the United Sbtes
prohibit contract labor, so by
annexation to the United States -the
planters ar deprived of that
class of labor so essential to their
To my mind, annexation seems
the height of folly, becanse.tho
islands are not solf-snstiiintng
under the laws of the United
States, and the people here are
bitterly opposed to it, so I think
a nice solution of the present
tronbles would be fo- the Uuited
States to undo what it has al
ready done, by replacing the
queen on tlie throne, and sayhijj
to the people, 'cnow go .ahead
and ran your own business in
your own way we will not inter
fere with you again;
