SOUTH SEA LABORERS.
From official returns, made by the
Fiji Government, wo learn that,
during last year, each adult laborer
from the South Pacific,' cost the Fiji
Government 200. One vessel, in
five months, only obtaiucd 59
laborers, while the Hazard, during
her last cruise, obtained 80 men in
three months. The Australian cap
tains complain of the competition of
Hawaii, as this country offers the
Islanders both better food and better
wages. In Fiji they obtain an
average of $15 per annum, in Queens
land $30 per annum, and in this
Kingdom an average of SCO per
annum for the men and $48 for the
women. Three-fourths of the men
whd have just arrived herd are re
turned laborers from Fiji andQucens
land, consequently experienced men.
Most of them can speak English and
all have duly acknowledged their
contracts. To the credit of Mr. A.
Unna, of Hana Plantation, it should
oe mentioned that twenty-three la
borers from the New Hebrides, whoso
contracts have expired, have re
shipped for a further term, thereby
forfeiting their right to be sent home
at the expense of the Government.
The contract term of these twenty
' three laborers having expired, 'we
are naturally led to enquire what has
"become of the remainder, who ar
rived at the same time, and whose
contracts must also have expired.
-They have not been returned to
their homes, they are not in the Im
migration Depot. Arc they still
working on the plantations, at their
previous rate of wages, until it suits
the Government to make arrange
ments to send them home ? Where
are they ?
MORMONS IN HAWAII.
Elder Henry A. Wooley, a son of
the late Bishop E. D. Wooley, who
left here on a mission to the Saud
wich Islands, December 11th, 1880,
reached home on last Wednesda
morning, after an absence of nearly
three years. During his sojourn on
the Islands he labored most of the
time on tho Church plantation at
Laic, but also spent four months
and a half in preaching and
officiating in the travelling ministry.
While on the plantation he assisted
in putting up the new sugar mill, his
trade being that of a carpenter, and
'likewise the new meeting house at
2- Laie, at the dedication of which a
few weeks ago, an extended des
cription of which appeared in this
paper, His Majesty, King Kalakaua
honored the occasion with his
presence. Brother Wooley also
acted as asst. supt. of the Sunday
School. The readers of the JVews
have many times heard, no doubt,
that through leprosy and various
other forms of disease, the native
race of the Islands was fast dying
out. Brother Wooloy states that
while such has been the case in tho
past, it is at present estimated that
the deaths and births among them
are about equal, and that the native
. population is now holding its own.
Our informant enjoyed his mission
very much and returns in excellent
health and sprits, (fieseret JSTeios,
Salt Lake City.
It is unusual to hear that, a Chinaman
lias insured his life, and It is still inoro
unusual to hear of such prompt pay
ment of claims as the following. Ou
15th Pcbruary, Lee Loy, who was doing
business in Illlo, insured His life in the
Equitable Life Assurance Compauy for
&3,000, under tho fifteen year endow
ment plan, no paid a year's premium
and died in September, On 31st October,
Mr. A. J. Cnrtwright, the Honolulu
agent of tho Company, sent, to the head
ofllco in Now York, proof of Leo Loy's
death: the matter having been placed
In his hands two days previously. On
4th December, thirty lour days after tho
papers loft Honolulu, tho wife of tho
deceased gave a receipt for 90,000, tho
full amount of her claim, the money
haying been sent from New York aud
handed to her. This instance not only
hows the benefit of Life Assurance, but
also thevery prompt manner In which
settlements arc made by the Equitable
Assurance company, which ulu
not even avail
