THE PAIA TROUBLES.
Without a full statement of the
case on both sides, v which may bo
expected fiom the promised investi
1 gation, it would not be proper to
publicly discuss either the charges
against the Paia plantation manage
ment or the action taken by the
Government in relation thereto.
Whatever may be the outcome of
the case as it stands, as that may
affect cither the plantation in qucs-
tion or the Government, we antici
pate that the matter will have a
reflex influence of very great import
ance. Every time the labor contract
system of this kingdom is brought
into notoriety by its ill results crop
ping out, the conviction of calm,
disinterested public "opinion is that
the system in question is an excres
cence upon our civilization that
should be excised. Whether all the
accounts, or half of them, that we
hear of ill-usage to the degree of
barbarity, practised on plantations,
arc true, one thing is certain.' That
is, that contract laborers on our
sugar plantations are liable to indig
nities that no human beings should
be subject to at the hands of their
fellow-creatures. Managers and
overseers have the power of despotic
sway over the laborers. They have
that power in the seclusion of the
canc-ficlds and the retirement of the
plantation buildings, which enable
them to administer totally unautho
rized and illegal discipline. The
same conditions make it feasible for
them to have an entirely one-sided
version of troubles presented to the
established courts, so that the laborer
in effect has no justice for him in
the code. Add to those conditions
the possible existence of a number of
ignorant justices of district courts,
some the veriest timeservers and
pliable tools for any and all who can
make it their interest to serve them,
and who shall say that the servitude
of the contract system is much
above that of actual proprietorship
of the bodies of the laborers? On
every hand wc hear fervent condem
nations of the system, which are not
confined to those without an interest
in sugar planting. Every stirring
up of the subject leaves contract
labor in increased ill repute. Whether
specific cases result in fastening
charges of ill-treatment upon parti
cular planters or not, the more tho
matter in the abstract is looked into
the greater do its possibilities of
degradation appear. There arc those
who say that the system ia a vital
necessity of the planting interest.
Yet there is evidence from planters
themselves, as well as from other
sugar-growing countries, that this is
a mistaken notion. With the im
provements in culture and manu
facture, which aio being rapidly in
troduced and arc promising of
greatly cheapened production, thero
is good ground for hope that tho
contract system may at an early day
be dispensed with, and not a protest
raised against it on any of our
A new code of regulations has
been issued by the Foreign Olllce
to supersede and rescind tho regu
lations of the 25th of' March last.
The number of Chinese allowed to
land at any port in tho Kingdom
from any one vessel will bo limited
to twenty-five. This rule applies
only to. new comers. The Mougo-
Jinn who has provlotsly been a rcsi-
( dent-and engaged in trade or in any
industrial enterprise for one year in
the Kingdom, is not to be debarred
the privilege of again breathing the
Hawaiian air, and being washed
with the Pali showers. Chinese
laborers leaving the country will bo
esteemed "good riddance, and must
stay away until Confucins comes to
thcir-rclief and changes their iden
tity. Traders and thoso who swell
tho volume of the nation's industry
by business enterprises will bo fur
' nished with passports at the Foreign
Olllce, when they want to take a
trip abroad, entitling them to return
whenever they think the interests of
the Kingdom require their presence.
Chinamen residing here in single
blessedness will be delighted with
the regulation authorizing the immi
gration of "any Chinese women de
siring to come to the islands," and
if the women who come arc beauti
ful and fair, John will doubtless be
honored with many rivals. Chinese
children whose parents arc residing
in the islands will be permitted to
conic hero and be trained in all the
learning of the Ilonolulunns. Pass
ports will be obtainable at the For
eign Ofllcc, Honolulu, and at tho Ha
waiian Consulates at Hongkong,
Slianguac, and San Francisco. Dis
cretionary power is also granted to
the Foreign Ofllcc to grant pass
ports to such persons of Chinese
nationality as the Minister of For
eign Affairs may deem it proper to
admit to the Kingdom. Wc hope
that His Excellency will dispense
the ."veto" with no meagre liber
ality; for there will doubtless be
many applications under this rule.
The fee of two dollars will be
charged for any passport issued
under these regulations. Before the
holder of the return passport can
embark for these islands, he must
present himself with his credentials
to the consular representative of this
Kingdom at the port where he is to
embark, and have his passport en
dorsed with the visa of said official ;
and should he remain over more
than twenty-four hours at any port
on his return journey, he and his
papers must undergo a similar in
spection and endorsation. Tho Con
sul's visa, in these cases, will cost
the sum of one dollar. A rigid en
forcement of these regulations will,
in time, produce a salutary effect
upon society in this Kingdom. The
admission of Chinese women without
restriction may or may not be ap
preciated by the fair subjects of
His Chinese Majesty. If, however,
they do take advantage of the
chances offered them to speculate
in the Hawaiian' matrimonial ex
change, one of the most demoral
izing abuses of the former system
of Chinese immigration will be re
moved. And should these regula
tions prove insufficient to check
effectively tho Mongolianizing pro
cess, the next thing in order will be
to reduce the admissions by any
one vessel to the small number of
one man and his own proper help
mate, they two to be of the aggre
gate age of not less than ninety-five
