The Planters' Labor & Supply Co.
held a further meeting yesterday, to
which for the first lime reporters
The minutes of the previous meet
ing were read and agreed to, and
reports of committees were called
for. None were forthcoming, and
the Chairman called on Mr. II. M.
Whitney to read the paper he had
prepared on the subject of Ucclpro
city. Mr. Whitney, having explained
that, owing to various circumstances
lie had not had the fullest access to
documents, &c, necessary for the
fullest treatment of the subject, then
load one of the ablest papers on the
subject luat it lias been our
fortune to come across.
The following brief outlines will in
dicate to our readers the purport of
it: Although the results of the
Treaty have been pecuniarily speak
ing more beneficial to llawaji than
to the United States, that is not to
be wondered at considering the im
mense difference in population ; still
the United States has reaped dcplo
liintic advantages of great value.
The population of Hawaii has in
creased from little over flO.OOO be
fore the Treaty to about 75,000 at
the end of 1882, and perhaps wdl
Not much attack was made on the
Treaty till the Autumn of 1881,
when several newspapers combined
and published statements of cruelty
which were almost wholly without
foundation, and generally made by
parties actuated by feelings of
These charges of slavery arc
utterly false and without foundation,
(applause). The origin of the in
denture system was traced to 'the
shipment of natives in whaling
vessels, and the length of contract
and amount of work performed
monthly, (20 days of 0 hours each)
alluded to. Fully ouc-fourih of the
laborers in the islands are engaged
by the month only, and more than
half have renewed their contracts
which shows whether the system is
good or not. Labor laws here arc
modelled on those of New York
State, and if anything better than
there. Many of the laborers have
plots of land and deposit accounts
with their employers, and on the
whole the condition of laborers is as
good hero as in any country in the
world. All dilliculties between
laborer and cmplyer are settled by
law, and the higher Judiciary hoi'o
arc renowned for their character and
ability, but most of the trouble may
bo traced lo the inferior character
of the native magistrates, and under
the new law we shall probably have
worse ones than the old, (ap
plause). Then followed statistics
of the number of plantations,
amount of crop, &e. (The esti
mated crop for this year is fG,0()(
tons). The author concluded with
an Kloqiieut appeal to tho United
States' Government to maintain the
A hearty vole of thanks was
tendered to Mr. Whitney, and the
report was referred to the Trustees.
(1'robably 5,000 copies will be
printed and circulated in America
and elsewhere.) The report of the
Committee on labor was circulated
and a short discussion followed.

The plantations will commence
grinding shortly. The Kekaha plan
tation will be ready about the first
of November. The Klcele has mado
a dual shipment of 2,000 lings and
will start in two weeks. The Koloa
plantation will start about the same
time, and Lihue and llauamaulu

The Chinese rice-planters have
been so prosperous that several of
them have gone down to Honolulu
to have a good tune one of them
raised at least 2,000 tons tins-year.
The whole amount of cane planted
is larger than in any former year, and
large crop are expected everywhere;
on the Kekaha, Klcele, Koloa,
Lihue, Hanamauht, Makeo Sugar
Co., ICcalia. and l'rinccvillc planta
tions, the cane looks extremely well.
The I'rinccvillo plantation will take
off this coining year the largest crop
since its foundation in 18G1.
The roads are in rather a misera
ble condition at present. The
bridges are rotten and in many cases
unsafe. Nothing has been done yet
by tho new Supervisor, owing to
want of money and his immediate
predecessor didn't attend ' to tho
wants of tho district. His Ex. Mr.
Uush is expected to visit Waialtia
and llanalei nvcrs, to personally
inspect and decide on the most
suitable sites for bridges to be built.
