E1IXMENT OPINION'S OK l'l.ANTKHS
Yesterday a representative of the
Bulletin took a brief round among
planters' agents and business men,
to ascertain their views upon the
Minister of the Interior's pronun
ciamento upon contract laborers.
Miits. Hvmax Duos, were of
opinion that the new arrangements
trenched upon the province of our
own courts. The planters, having
advanced large sums of money to
the Government for the expenses of
labor immigration, would scarcely
be disposed to submit the contracts
to the interpretation of foreign
agents. If our local courts were
not competent to deal with labor
disputes, it devolved upon the
Government to make them so.
Mit. Tur.o. II. Davies believed
the Government were doing the
best they could to give the planters
acceptable labor. It was necessary
to do something to keep desirable
laborers in the country. He was
satisfied the Government's policy,
in the matter in question, wa.s
honestly conceived for the benefit
of the planter as well as the laborer.
M'li. A. J. Caictwiii(3ht, Sii.,
said the deliverance of the Minister
of the Interior seemed, at first sight,
simply to be the formulation of laws
already in existence. Before pro
nouncing positively upon it, he
thought it better to await action by
the Planters' Convention, as the
planters were the most competent
judges in the case. It seemed on
the whole, however, to be a good
move on the part of the Govern
ment. Possibly under the new
arrangements it might be difficult
to deal siilllciently promptly with
offenses on the plantations, that is,
unless the Commission is to be on
tlio ground all the time.
A fiENTi.r.MAK, who afterward de
sired that his name should not ap
pear, answered the reporter's query
in the Scotch fashion by asking,
"What is there in it?" There
seemed to him to be nothing new in
the document, but it might have
value in directing people's attention
to the fact that we have labor lawn.
IIit. P. C. Joses, one of the trus
tees of the Planters' Company,
thought the declaration of the Min
ister had an arbitrary look, as the
planters took the laborers under
certain conditions, and now a rider
was placed upon those conditions.
However, the Trustees of the Plan
ters' Company had n meeting yes
terday and decided to await a legal
opinion upon the matter. They ad
journed until Wednesday next for
that purpose. He would also prefer
not to pronounce positively upon
the new arrangements until then.
Mn. Hesiiv W atkuhoi.sk had
read the document casually, and
thought it very good. There ought
not to be any clashing between em
ployers and the Government upon
the matter. The scheme would
knock the idea of slavery right out.
Mn. 12. P. Adams had remarked
to our representative the previous
day that he believed the announce
ment of His Excellency was a good
move. Further consideration left
him of the same mind. He thought
it would have a very beneficial
effect. The Government, he said,
should have full credit for a good
Mn. Jona. Austin, President of
the Planters' Company, naturally,
in view of the action of the trustees
yesterday, preferred to reserve his
Mit. J. B. Atheuton, a trustee of
the Planters' Compaii', believed the
new departure would be a benefit,
provided final appeal is not to be to
Japan. That in reality involved the
independence of this kingdom. If
final arbitrament of plantation
troubles vested in Japan, then the
question would be whether they
needed Japanese labor so much that
they must take it with the restric
tions prescribed by the Japanese
Government. The prevention of
petty complaints beinr reported in
detail to tlio Japanese Government,
if that object should be attained by
the Commissions, would be a benefit.
But that result, as well as the other
declared object of avoiding litiga
tion here, would depend entirely
upon the kind of men to be placed
upon the Commissions.
An Hon. Noih.k regarded the
measure as an unjust one to the
planters, as it added onerous terms
to the contracts under which the
laborers were employed. Besides,
it was an infringement upon the
prerogatives of the courts of this
kingdom, to admit the arbitrament
of foreign agents between masters
and servants. It would be a very
bad stale of affairs to have laborers
imbued with the notion that Un
controlled the situation. Of course
it was well to interfere against undue
violence toward the laborer, but it
was going too far, he thought, to
prohibit any laying on of hands by
overseers. Often it was necessary
to stimulate a sense of duty in an
incorrigibly lazy, stubborn or other
wise vicious fellow with a push. It
would be out of all reason to have a
contract voided upon so slight a pre
text as that. The Government
would go far enough when it pro
vided courts of law, in the different
districts, which could be depended
upon to discreetly and faithfully
administer the ample laws now on
the statute books for the protection
of the laborers. The Noble spoke
highly of the judgment exercised by
Mr. Canavarro, Portuguese Com
missioner, in his dealing with com
plaints by laborers of his nationality,
discriminating so accurately between
real and imaginary grievances as to
secure the settlement of disputes
with the least possible amount of
f notion. He believed Mr. Nakn-
yama, the supplementary Japanese
agent, to be a man of good judg
ment, who would not encourage his
laboring countrymen here in making
Mn. P. A, SciiAEKEit said lie had
not had time as yet to fully consider
the declaration in question, or to
exchange views witli others upon it.
One ditliculty that occurred to him
as possible, in carrying out the new
arrangements, would be the securing
of prompt action by the Inspectors.
Unless a suflicicnt number of these
were appointed to have one for each
District, which would involve great
additional expense to the country,
there might be delay in having dis
putes settled. The laws already in
existence protected the laborers
against improper usage, and every
change made in them for a number
of years past has been to the ad
vantage of the laborers. While the
Government were doubtless actuated
by the best intentions in the matter,
he believed the objects in view
could better be attained by having
reliable Justices appointed in all the
Districts. Salaries should be at
tached to those positions which
would secure tlio services of thor
oughly clllcient men.

ance asked us, "How many letters
