THE LABOR DECISION.
The final decision of the planters,
in their discussion of the labor ques
tion with tho Government, to ask for
the immediate issuance of two thou
sand permits to Chinese immigrants,
is, perhaps, as moderato as could
have been expected in tho rather
desperate straits of their iudnstry,
and the country's, for cheaper labor.
If such an action be inevitable, it is
to be hoped that it will be accepted
as a final test of tho Chinese, so that
if it will only have a temporary effect
upon prices of labor, as some
thoughtful planters hold with us, a
repetition of the call for relief from
the same source will never bo made.
Still we hope that the planters may
sec their way clear to combining
for tho importation at once of a
sulllcicnt number of Japanese to
bring labor down to the required
level. Although the plantations re
port a total want of four thousand
laborers, it docs not follow, by what
the planters in council have said
themselves, that so many arc re
quired from abroad. According to
their own accounts, there arc large
numbers of men on tho plantations,
and hanging about tiic outskirts, out
of whom clllcicnt labor could be
obtained if they found the planters
were not so much at thcr mercy on
account of a scarcity of men. Even
the knowledge that tho planters have
abundant sources of help from Japan
ought to produce a salutary result
upon these loafers, and the first
small invoice of Japanese promised
is likely to be taken as an earnest
by the class described that they must
work or get out of tho way. Arc
tho planters satisfied that by confes
sing and acting upon dependence
upon Chinese help, that nationality,
with Us well-known unequalled faci
lity of combination, would not treat
them as dependents from tho first?
It will be a disastrous result of
tho admittance of a large rein
forcement of Chinese, If the
plnntcts should flntl 'themselves no
better of while tho country would
be plnccd under additional tribute
for tho support of &o many moro of
Uiat irrepressible nationality. Would
not pitting Chinese against Chinese
result as before in simply being
reinforcement of Chinese with Chi
nese, and would it not be better to
pit their sister but very distinct
nationality, tho Japanese, against
tho too independent Chinese, now
here. Suppose the Chinese at pre
sent here, witii tlir largo additions
proposed to their numbers, should
one day find that their inteicst lay
in combining to raise and mill cane
for themselves upon a co-operative
plan, where would the present plant
ing interests be found? This coun
try would bo n rich prize for the
Chinese. They well know it, and
they can bide their time more
patiently, and strive more assi
duously and quietly, for desirable
objects than any race on earth. For
those who now in the main possess
the land to assist that race in its
acquirement of it would indeed be
A contemporary the other day
advocated in scientific jargon the
introduction of a very useful tree to
these Islands. It was apparently
innocent of tho fact that the tree in
whose favor it exhausted so much
classical lore is the algcroba, one of
the most abundant trees on all our
It will be a brighter day for the
country and for humanity when
sugar planters find in scientific pro
cess and economical method tiic
assurance of legitimate profit, and
be no longer dependent upon a
supply of human beings of a grade
below tho plane of avcrago civiliza
tion. Both in the Legislature and in the
) press it had been frequently urged
: that the Minister of Foreign Affairs
had no right in law to the title of
I Premier. The point was ag.rn raised
1 in the Planters' meeting yesterday,
1 when Mr. Davies, an Opposition
man, opposed the contention, saying
the title was not inappropriate to
l the gentleman at the head of tho
Cabinet, nor any more illegal than
its application to tho English Prime
Minister. From the confident man
ner in which the objection to the
title had been made, wc do not
know but wc may have fallen in
with it at some time, although we
confers we never saw what was to
have been gained by it. "Arose
by any other name would smell as
sweet." The Advertiser this morn
ing seems to finally confirm Mr. Gib
son's claim to the title by the state
ment that he received it by his com
mission from the King, as did one
or more of his predecessors before
him. AVe arc not sorry for the set
tlement of the question in this waj',
for tho title is more convenient than
Minister of Foreign Affairs when a
lcpctition of the incumbent's name
is to bo avoided.
THE PLANTERS IN COUNCIL.
FniDAV, Oct. 21tji.
After opening the morning session
with the usual routine, tho Secretary
icpoitcd a cordial reply from Mr.
Jaeger, superintendent of Govern
ment nurseries, to tho vote of thanks
tendered him by the Company. lie
took occasion lo urge the employ
ment by the Company of a suitable
person on the plantations to super
vise general agricultural operations
Tho call for a statement of labor
wants resulted in tho following ans
wers: I Iackf eld & Co., fiOO; Cas
tle & Cooke, fiOO; C. Brewer & Co.,
COO; T. II. navies, -100; F. A.
Schacfcr, :J.r.O ; A. Unna, CO ; R. A.
Macfio, Jr., flO; "Waianac Co., 50;
Grove Iinnch, .10. Total, 2,510.
Messrs. Irwin & Co., lloffschhicgcr
& Co., C. Afong and the Ookala
Sugar Co. were not heard from ; but
their orders will probably swell the
total to over -1,000.
Mr. Davics submitted the draft of
a letter in reply to tho Government's
reply to their memorial on tho labor
question. Tho same deputation was
appointed to present tho letter, which
states tho appreciation by tho Com
pany of tho Government's rcluct
nncc to withdraw tho restrictions
upon Chinese immigration, and gra
tification that tho Government was
prepared to consider the question.
i Also, tho letter expressed tho opi-
i nion that the immediate issue of
2,000 permits for Chinese- to land
here would havo tho effect of lower
ing tliu existing rate for labor,
nuring tho discussion tho opinion
1 was expressed that if the Chinese
came the Japanese would not be
needed, whereupon Mr. Davics said
i that planters were in honor bound to
aid the Government in the matter of
1 Japanese labor. They, the planters,
had said they wanted Japanese and
1 now they could not turn around and
say they had changed their minds.
Tho Chinese they asked for now arc
lo supplement the Japanese.
A discussion arose on an objec
tion raised by Mr. "SV. 11. Castle, to
addressing tho Minister of Foreign
Affairs as the "Premier," and it
was shown that tho title was not
misplaced even if not provided by
Mr. Horner asked what the
planters were to do in case Japanese
could not be procured and tho Chi
nese were not permitted to come.
This staffed a discussion upon the
necessity and methods for getting
from the cane the large proportion
of sugar now wasted.
After accepting an invitation to
meet at Dodd's stables at 2 o'clock,
Saturday afternoon, to visit the Gov
ernment nurseries, the Company ad
journed till 1 o'clock on Monday.

for the opinion impressed by our cor.
"SICK READER" DOING NICELY.
EniTon Bumxtix: You were so
long in bringing out my last that I
supposed you had gone back on me,
but I now sec that 1 was mistaken.
You can't begin to think how much
you have benefited me. I am feel
ing (piitc a new man. From the
time of that old newspaper experi
ence, related in my last, up to the
period of your recent friendly talk
with me, 1 had carried about with
mo an inward consciousness of be
ing a miserable outcast, unfit for
the fcoeicty of well-dressed, respect
able people, who never entertain or
express an opinion adverse to the
notions of those born to lead and
dictate. A wondrous change has
come over mo. A fragment of cloud
appears in the firmament the size of
a baby's foot. A hope springs up
in my breast that I may yet come
out of my degradation, and pass
muster with those whom heaven has
endowed with the right to spout.
Under the inspiration of this new
hope 1 beg permission to refer
briefly to a few points in your talk
You say itJs the function of tho
press to "effect things." That's
right: I believe it. And if the press
goes the right way about it, it can
effect almost anything that is sensi
ble. But when the press gets sav
age and yells out a string of uncom
plimentary names, it will effect a
plenty of bad blood, and a very
little else. When good people talk
kindly to mo about reformation, I
always feel the better for it ; but
when they begin to bounce and jeer,
I want to fight. 1 notice that most
others arc pretty much tho same.
A few civil words will effect more
good than n whole column of bclli
You ask, "What things require to
be effected in the politics of this
Kingdom for tho good of the in
habitants thereof?" and reply that
"tho answer must bo formed by
every conscientious mind according
to the state of affairs presented to
it." Very good. That is, you al
low everybody tho right of private
judgment. That's all I want, and
don't like to be frightened out of
ten year's life for exercising it.
Arc you quite sure that it is right
to say, "No matter how well tho coun
try may be governed as a rule, false
steps and wrong courses should be
pointed out," and "no njattcr how
ill the country may bo governed as
a rule, good conduct in any
particular should bo honestly
acknowledged and commended?"
I don't ask the question bc
causo 1 doubt tho correctness
of your conclusion ; but because my
pal says you arc all wrong. Says
he, if tho Government is crooked, it
is crooked from top to bottom, and
you should blaze away at every Jack
one of them, and pour fire and brim
stono on their heads until their halt
is scorched to a cinder. My pal is
a great student of scripture, and ho
goes his pile on the text that says
" no good thing can come out of
Nazareth." I have to keep my
mouth shut, or there would be ever
lasting tumult in llachelor's Hall,
especially as he can claim the sup
port of such a powerful lot of news
papers. " The allegations that past mana
gers of public affairs have been ns
bad as present ones, is a sido issue
until the alleged unfaithful (stewards
of the past try to secure tho reins of
power again." No doubt about it.
And 3'ct wc often see and hear this
weak defence set up for public men.
In fact, I have a notion to try tho
samo dodgo myself tho next time I
appear before Justice Bickerton on a
charge of robbery. A plea of justi
fication on the ground of precedent
must have weight. I am in n posi
tion to show thot Smith, Brown, and
Robinson broke open a bank and
robbed a poor widow of two cents,
long before I began the business.
Therefore, Your Honor, you aro
bound lo discharge me. I have
dono nothing but followed tho ox
nmplo of the three worthies afore
named, only I may have taken n
cent or two more, on account of
moro urgent need.
One other point, and finish.
" Measures and not men." I don't
see, any more than you, how men
can be " dissociated from their meas
ures." I can just as cosily under
stand nn net being dono without an
agent, or a crime committed without
a criminal. But still I think the
people in general arc more concerned
about measures for the public good
than about the men who may effect
those measures. For myself, I a a
badly in need of a measure of coin.
I don't care whether it comes from
Tom, Dick, Harry, or Bob, as long
as 1 get it, or whether cither of those
gentlemen has anything to do with
it. The measure is what I am after,
and never mind the men. When I
used to attend electioneering meet
ings at home I observed that the
wide-awake candidate generally drew
a burlesque contrast between the ex
travagant intelligence and honor of
his rival and the incredible absurdity
and dishonesty of his opinion. The
mob unavoidably put the man in the
place of the measure, and howled
themselves hoarse with groans and
hisses. I had better stop before
over-excrtion produces a relapse,
and I again become
