THE CHINESE INVASION.
Wo hoar that a proposition has
been made to the Government by a
Chinese Company that they will fur
nish all the Chinese laborers wanted,
from 1,000 to 5,000, for terms of
three yenivj, renewable for two years
more, at a rate of wages which has
not transpired. At the end of the
five years those that wish to return
would be' sent back, and tlieir places
buppliccl by new ones.
If an engagement like that could
be formed with a responsible party
it would be probably the best thing
that could happen for the sugar and
rice planting interests. The supply
could be kept up to meet the de
mand, and could be arranged to
work like a machine. Tt would be
well though to make a bargain com
pelling all of them to return at the
expiration of the three or five years'
contract, so that the actual number
in the country would not increase.
Jt is as well to consider, too, the ex
pressed views of the Planters, that
Chinese labor is the best, when it
does not cost over ?10 to S12 a
Wc have stated before that we
have heard that the Portuguese Con
sul aud Commissioner, Mr. Cana
varro, has written to his Govern
ment, advising them in case this
largo importation of Chinese con
tinues, to forbid the emigration of
any more Portuguese subjects, on
the grounds that they would not be
required as laborers.
It therefore is a matter of the
greatest importance that this im
portation of Chinese should be
arranged in some definite and desira
ble manner. Wc do not want the
country flooded with Chinese males
who come here to stay, wc do not
want to lose the ultimate benefits of
the Portuguese repopulation, and we
want cheap labour to make our
plantath ns pay, aud our country
If the present ministry succeed in
dealing with this question so as to
arrange it leaving the minimum of
discontent in the public mind they
i 'will have earned the gratitude of the
country that will wipe out the re
collection of ninny past acts
The Guild of st7 Andrew
