An interesting article on the sub
ject of Chinese progress appeared
recently in the Xcotxmuu. Taking
up the popular opinion that there
was no such thing as progress in
China, the writer say that Mich is
"not the opinion of those best ac
quainted with the pat history and
present doings of the Chinese."
Although their rate of progress is
slower than that of western nations,
yet the vastness of the body to be
moved must be taken into account.
"China is nearly as large as Kurope,
and contains a much larger popula
tion, every thin! man in the wot Id
being, it is calculated, a Chinaman."
The Chinese appear to have been
among the earliest, if not the veiy
earliest, of the human race to
emerge from barbarism.
"They have a literature older than
the days of Closes, and astronomical
observations that go back at least to
the days of Abraham. Comparing
their early progress with that of
European nations, they were clothed
in silk robes when our wivage ances
tors still painted their naked bodies.
They invented printing, and had
printed books about the middle of
the tenth century, ."iOO year-, before
the time of Caxton. Gunpowder
and the mariner's compass were
Chinese inventions long before they
were known to Europeans. Lieut.
II. N. Shore pointed out in a recent
paper read before the Society of
Arts, that in the matter of canals,
the utilization of carrier pigeons,
the artificial culture of oysters, lish,
and poultry, and in the satisfactory
solution of the great sewage ques
tion, the Chinese have been before
us in time, and, in some of these at
least, are still ahead of us in results.
Their progress in the past cannot be
gainsaid ; it may, however, be con
tended that they have now reached
the limit of their capacity, and that
no fuithcr progress need be antici
pated. This, to say the least of it,
is exceedingly unlikely in a people
acknowledged by anthropologists to
to be the biggest brained race in the
world, while facts are against it, for
signs of progress are not wanting
among the Celestials of the present
China was, until a comparatively
recent lime, a world to itself, the
only thing it is known to have bor
rowed from abroad being its Bud
dhistic religion. An entire change
has come over it in this respect.
There has been a constant stream of
emigration from its chief ports for
many years, until now tho Chine&e
arc, next to the English-speaking
races, the greatest colonists in the
"The climate of further India,
Siam, Malaya, and tho vast chain of
islands, great and small, extending
from Sumatra to Australia, suits the
Chinaman admirably, and these nro
being gradually peopled by this oblique-eyed
Mongolian race. Han
goon, in British Hurmah, contains
10,000 of them; Singapore, tho
great commercial capital of Malaya,
has 80,000 out of n total population
of 05,000. Java luw 100,000 ; while
the Straits Settlements, nccording to
a recent traveler, ate now virtually
Chinese colonics under the British
flag.' They arc not merely numerous
in the Malay Archipelago, they arc
also inllucnlial, the commerce of
those regions being almost entirely
in their hands. In Australia they
have obtained a fooling, and can
make fortunes nt the gold diggings
by working over again the refuse
heaps of the European digger. That
they arc no mean competitors in the
industrial race is seen in the lcslric
lions put on their entrance into tho
Australian colonics. They have niado
their way to all the chief groups of
islands in the I'aciflc Ocean, and
have now become an inllucnlial ele
ment in the population of tho Sand
wich Islands, where they are fast
superseding the indolent natives."
Let us ay hcie that a cruel wrong
to a naturally line race is involved in
any policy that would place a people
with the hereditary cxpeitncss of
ages in competition with the natives
of these Islands while yet in their
tutelage respecting the arts and the
activities of civilization. The arti
cle, from which we quote goes on to
exhibit the remarkable prominence
of the Chinese clement in America,
where it has shown itself, by the per
secution to which it has been sub
jected, more than able to hold its
own in the labor market.
"The United States owes to them
the construction of the Californian
section of the great Pacific railway ;
and if M. DcLcsseps should ever
succeed in cutting his canal thrqugb
Central America, it will most pro
bably be by the aid of Chinese mus
cle. Chinamen arc now also found
in the West Indies and British Gui
ana ; while it must not be forgotten
that they arc spreading westward
from China into Thibet. Mongolia,
and Asiatic Hussia."
The wiitcr is of the common opi
nion that the sight of the wealth of
Chinamen returning to their own
country " forms a stimulant to fur
ther emigration, while their accounts
of Western civilization, with its tele
graphs, telephones, and locomotives,
must gradually prepare their coun
trymen for tho introduction into
China of those improvements in
communication." In the view of
the English people, as the Scotsman
says, it K as a great colonizing
power thai China has a very
special interest, and Sir Rutherford
Alfock is quoted as holding that,
"taking their nuiubeis and our own,
it did not require to carry one's
views very far into futurity to sec
that there would be eventually two
races which would occupy the
greater part of the world one was
the English-speaking race, which
had already filled North America
and stretched into the Australasian
continent and the surrounding isl
ands, and would very soon count up
to 200,000,000, and the other was
the K)0,000,0004of Chinese." The
reading of this instructive1 article
after taking the gioimd we have in
respect to the proposed admittance
of large numbers of Chinese to sup
ply the lack of labor here, has help
ed much in confirming us in the
positmu taken in that regard. Not
that we bear the slightest enmity
toward the interesting Chinese rtfee,
but because we recognize the issue
as being whether this group is to be
the possession of that indomitable
people, or remain the habitation cf
its primeval owners in conjunction
with the colonizing races who have
introduced to them the lights, and
the shadows, of a civilization better,
if not cheaper, than that of the
It has been suggested to us that
the aquatic faports on the King's
Birthday should be varied with such
amusing contests as duck and egg
hunts, etc. What is tho good of
suggestions, however, with no com
mittee to carry them out?
If the sticet railway is not to be
built shortly, why cannot an omnibus
line on the principal streets be es
tablished, with a ten-minute service
each way at the hours when the. bulk
of the population is moving between
bed, business and board? Some of
the enterprise and snap, that we
know our chief manipulators of
horse ilesh possess, would, we bc
licvo, make such n project a success.
A small cloud of hope appears in
the sugar horizon news of a reaction
in the European and American
markets. An expected reduction in
the beet crop, and an increased con
sumption, aro credited with the ad
vance of thrcouiguths of a cent In
in New Yoik. It is
even this slight token of
encouragement lias not come until
our planters had bccoiuo fully deter
mined to make radical improvements
in the methods of production. ,.
Wasteful processes arc inexcusable
in the llushcst times.
THE PLANTERS IN COUNCIL.
Monday, Oct. 27th.
The Planters' Labor & Supply
Company met at 10 o'clock.
Mr. .7. M. Homer suggested that
if Japanese immigration did not suc
ceed, and the Chinese were not ad
mitted, the planters might agree to
reduce the acreage of cane to be
Mr. Lydgnte thought the plan was
hardly practicable, as many planta
tions had contracts with mills to
plant it certain number of acres of
Mr. Walsh objected to the senti
ments of a letter signed "Wliite
tnan " in the Advertiser, saying he
did not believe it was wiittcn by a
working man, as it purported to be.
If the writer of it understood cane
planting, he could get S 10 a month
and keep on Paia plantation. Man
white men wanted something to do,
but did not want to work.
Mr. IIoincr(endorsed Mr. Walsh's
remarks, and said ho had found
white men in some cases not worth
more than Chinamen.
Mr. Davics spoke of a shipload of
white labor brought by Mr. Hart,
sonic of whom turned out well and
icecived good wages. It was not
true that white men could not get
work at good wages ; if they kept
sober they would do well. He lead
an extract from the London Times,
showing that the beet-root industry
in Germany cannot live at present
prices any more than the sugar cane.
Mr. E. Lycan spoke by invitalion
on his experience with fruit culture.
He was growing varieties of grapes,
pine-apples, chirimoyas, etc., with a
view to supplementing our export of
bananas to the California market.
Mr. Lydgato reported that a few
of the members had visited the Gov
ernment nurseries on .Saturday, and
been much interested in Mr. Jae
ger's operations. They recom
mended, and on motion it was de
cided, that the trustees place such a
sum of inone' in Mr. Jaeger's hands
as would enable him to collect valua
ble seeds in Honolulu and distribute
them among the planters.
A discussion on seed-cane arose
upon a question by Mr. Horner as
to the cause of failure in the ilrst
seed planted to germinate in fre
The President announced that a
reply had been received from the
Premier in answer to the Company's
request for more Chinese labor.
Mr. Gibson had to say that His
Majesty's Government had, after
careful deliberation, decided that
it could not tako the serious
step which the planters urged.
They were in error in assuming that
the promised first shipment of Japan
ese was all they could rely upon
during next year. Even if they
gave the Government no pecuniary
assistance, it might fairly be as
sumed that two or more shipments
of Japanese would be brought during
1S85. Then there were the ship
load of Portuguese left behind by
the S. S. Bordeaux, and the return
ing Chinese. With the co-opcriltiou
of the planters, and the use of the
cable for greater despatch, laborors
should be got hero more promptly
from Japan than from any other
bourcc. When Chinese were adniitcd
over a year ago on a similar ex
igency, there was much delay in
getting them on account of the difll
culty of recruiting them except iu
the eatly months of the year. The
most that could be expected from
tho relaxation of existing rules would
be the arrival of immigrants iu
March and April next, with proba
bility of even further delay. The
Premier pointed out that the exper
ience of last year had shown that the
admission of between 2,000 and
11,000 Chinese was of no immediate
benefit to tho planters. It was only
after the arrival of a number of
Portuguese immigrants that the labor
market was affected by the presence
of the Chinese. Ho quoted a com
munication from a committee of the
planters to the Government last
year, in which they expressed them
selves distinctly as opposed to an
" unregulated addition to the pre-
sent floating Chinese population."
Tho Chinese Government elthor
would not consent to this country
regulating emigration from its tcrri- i
lory, or was too much occupied with i
more important affairs to give heed
to our representations. Therefore,
any immigration of Chinese, to which
the door could now be opened, must
be cntitcly " unregulated," and to
secure by its means 2,000 laborers
for sugar plantations, very many
thousands iu all would have to be let
in, which would be a nattonal dis
aster. On the other hand, all the
Japanese coming in, under arrange
ments making, can all be relied upon
as plantation laborers, with the ex
ception of the few who may pass
into domestic service. The Premier
concludes his reply with arguments
that 'the Chinese restriction main
tained by this Government had met
with the approval of the United
States, Great Britain, France and
Portugal, and that their admittance
now would be a breach of faith with
Japan, which had gone out of her
way to meet our wants, largely upon
the strength of representations of
our policy respecting the Chinese.
The letter was received and order
ed to bo filed.
Mr. W. O. Smith expressed his
coincidence with the arguments of
the Minister, saying that if it were
not for the present urgency they
would never have thought of bring
ing more Chinese into the country.
It was strange to him, however, that,
after a prosperous year, the Govern
ment could not afford the few thou
sand dollars requisite for promptly
bringing in the Japanese.
The meeting adjourned until Tues
day morning at nine o'clock.
Tl'ksdav, Ocr. 28.
The Company met this morning,
and the committee of four on immi
gration submitted draft of reply to
Government's last communication,
which was accepted. The committee
was continued, and the Company ad
journed sine die subject to the call of
trustees in the course of two or three
months, to further consider immigra
