PLANTERS' LABOR AND SUPPLY CO.
At the meeting yesterday morning
thirty-three gentlemen were present,
the number of shares represented,
on the calling of the roll, being
The report of the Treasurer was
unanimously aeecptcd. It showed a
balance brought forward of S9,GG7,
the amounts received from the se
cond and third assessments as $12,
205.S0 and $11,700.50; the Plan
ters' Monthly, for the year, cost
554.20. The balance due to Bis
hop & Co. is $8,GG1.-18 which arises
from the expenses of the Hazard
having been paid. These expenses
amounting to $12,010.52 will be re
turned by the planters under a gua
rantee held by Bishop & Co.
A committee consisting of lion.
C. H. Bishop, G. II. Dole and Mr.
Unua was appointed to audit the ac
counts. The election of Trustees was pro
ceeded with, Messrs. "Whitney,
Atherton and "Williams being ap
Mr. "W. O. Smith presented a re
port on labor which had been seen
by all the Committee except Mr.
Austin. The lcport slated that the
labor supply was not Vis inadequate
or its position as despondent as at
the time of their former meeting,
labor being more plentiful and at
less rates. The position of the labor
question however called for wise
legislation. It referred to the sus
pension of Portuguese immigration
and said that renewed efforts should
be made to increase this supply as
an off set to Chinese labor. The
New Hebrides men had given satis
faction but the Gilbert Islanders had
not, being imbecile and unfitted for
work. China was the only country
from which a source of cheap labor
could be relied upon and it was
thought that an influx of G,000 Chi
nese next year would make no change
in wages. They were a shrewd
clanny race who united in maintain
ing high rates of wages. They must
be saved from vagrant laborers, and
not forget the moral and religious
prosperity of the men.
The report was ordered to be
printed in the Planters Monthly.
Messrs. Bailey, Baldwin and Da
vies took part in the discussion.
Mr. Dole referred to the unani
mous action of the Kauai planters,
and, how men who refused to ship,
were driven 4rom the island.
Mr. Rickard endorsed the action
of the Kauai planter: and referred
to the many sects among the Chi
nese, how they were united, ap
pointed lenders and hud runners
llirougli the islands. Some men
t worked mid r.tippwted the loafers.
Messrs. Bailey, Uuna and Davies
'- were appointed a committee to pre
pare a resolution for circulation
among the planters and presentation
to the Government on the subject of
a treaty with China.
On motion of Mr. Davies, Messrs.
Wilcox, Ilalstead, Baldwin, Atkins
and Rickard wero appointed a com
mittee to recommend to the compa
ny a method of dealing with da'
and contract labor.
On motion of Mr. "W. O. Smith a
resolution was passed to the eifect
that the continuance of Portuguese
immigration was of great importance
to the best interests of the islands.
, He complained that no information
was ever' received from the Govern
ment but that everything was made
public by the press.
Mr. Davies supported the action
of the Government.
A report on machinery was read
I by Wr. Baldwin when tlio result of
the election of Trustees was lo-
r.clfcd as follows.

Mr. Halslead asked for the sense

Mr. Whitney's report on cultiva
tion was read, discussed and accep

on forestry and Mr. A. J. Cart

till 10 o'clock to-day.
Extracts from the secretary's
annual report :
"On January 8th, an application
was received from Dr. II. J. Smith,
Glasgow, offering his services as
chemist. This was referred to a
committee with instructions to con
fer with the Government and with
the authorities of Punahou College,
Nothing, however, was done, as the
Government had no appropriation,
and the aid offered by Punahou was
not sutlicient to authorise the trust
ees in assuming the responsibility of
engaging the services of this gentle
man for a term of years."
With reference to Italians, Mr.
Schacfer, said :
"Thai Italians coining here bj'
way of New York and San Francisco
would be too expensive, and liable to
many casualties tending to failure,
while it is doubtful if the trustees
be prepared just now to favor immi
gration direct from Italy by steamers
and that, notwithstanding the favor
able characteristics, in many respect;
of the laborers of North Italy, still
under existing conditions as to
labor in this kingdom, if his (Mr.
Schaefcr's) opinion were asked as
Consul for Italy, he could not, just
yet, conscientiously recommend that
Italians come out here as contract
"On the 10th April, Messrs.
Irwin and Adams reported that they
had called upon Mr. Gibson on the
subject of Chinese immigration, and
that Mr. Gibson said 'that the Gov
ernment was prepared, if necessary,
to put in force the Act of 1878, re
gulating the permission to land, to
be accorded to foreigners (Asiatics) ;
and Mr. Gibson also stated that the
Government had received advices
from the Chinese Government that
the latter were prepared to send for
ward say 3000. or other number of
laborers, as may be required per
annum, one-third being women, the
Chinese Government bringing them
here and carrying them home again
at the end of . three years. This
matter was brought before the trust
ees on April 10th, and at that time a
letter from Mr. Gibson was read in
viting conference with the trustees
on the. subject of the number ot
laborers required for the current
year, and dealings with the Chinese
generally. A committee, composed
of Messrs. Irwin, Schaefer, Jones,
Glade, and Atherton, was appointed
and waited upon Mr. Gibson. The
next day, April 11, at 2 p.m., Mr.
Gibson proved to be verbose and in
di'linite, and the interview was en
tirely unsatisfactory. ' '
"The trustees had several meet
ings in June and July with Hon.
Klwood E. Tliorne of New York, a
gentleman of considerable influence,
who whilo upon a general visiting
tour of the Islands had undertaken to
investigate some of the false charges
brought against us, especially those
in lcfcrcnce to the fraudulent impor
tations of sugars, and complaints
against our labor system. Being
questioned upon these points, he
stated to the' trustees that he had
been thoroughly convinced that the
alleged system of fraud was impos
sible, that the story of the smuggling
'has not a shadow to hang itself
upon,' that the benefits of the
treaty wero shared mainly by the
planters, and that the antagonism of
interests was greatly exaggerated.'
In truth,' Mr. Tliorne continued,
'all these questions in regard to the
Reciprocity Treaty are very imper
fectly understood in the States. If
the facts were known, opposition
would ho disarmed.' He had no
idea how little was known of tho
merits of the caso."
"It had been earnestly hoped by
the trustees, from the report of
their committee who waited upon
Mr. Gibson, April 10, that the con
vention with China, by which 3000
laborers ono third women were to
be brought hero every year and re
turned at tho expiration of their
three years' contract, in their own
