THE DAILY BULLETIN SUMMARY: HONOLULU, H, I., MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 1885.
( Continuation of Suumary.)
A STRANGE ACCIDENT.
A peculiar and painful accident
happened lo Mr. II. S. Davidson, of
the Survey Department, yesterday.
lie was playing short stop in a prac
tice game of the Honolulu baseball
club, and in throwing a ball from
flcld lo first base gave his right arm
a wrench that broke a bone between
the shoulder and elbow. The crack
of the bonu was heard all over the
flcld. Mr. Davidson was diivcn to
his rooms on Emma street, where
Doctors McGrcw treated the injured
member. Sept. 11th.
A ROYAL EXCURSION.
His Majesty the King goes lo
Kona by the' steamer W. G. Hall
this afternoon. He will be attended
by Ihc Chamberlain, Hon. C. II.
Judd, and a retinue of about llftccn
servants. By the same boat the
Princess Likclikc takes her daughter,
the Princess Kaiulani, to Kaawaloa,
Hawaii, on a visit for the benefit of
the little princess's health. Miss
Gardinicr, governess to the latter,
and ten servants attend their Royal
Highnesses. Mrs. J. W. Kobcrtson
and Mrs. Geo. Uecklcy accompany
the party. Sept. 11th.
Paia, Sept. 3rd, 1883.
Emtou Uui.i,i;tix: In order to
justify a rather questionable course
taken by the Board of Immigration
in withdrawing the Japanese assign
ed to the Paia Plantation, the Ad
vertiser of the 29th ult., with a
great flourish in a three column
article, abuses this plantation, the
manager and all connected there
with. Now, while there is no doubt that
the Japanese made complaints and
allegations (which I will answer
later) ,3'ct when sifted down by such
a man as Mr. Jona. Austin on the
spot "The complaints were found
to be about comparatively trivial
matters, such as arc constantly
arising where large numbers of men
arc employed in manual labor."
The Government should have the
credit of trying to arrange matters
satisfactorily, and finally they pro
bably took the step they did to con
ciliate the Japanese ofllcials.
But the editors of the Advertiser,
probably realizing the mistake of
such a step, and the grave conse
quences which may ensue from it,
in the demoralization of this class
of labor on other plantations, has in
his overzealousness to put the blame
iu advance on some one else, pub
lished the aforementioned article
filled with abuse, vituperation, and
the garbling of reports, to suit his
purpose. The article concludes with
tragical whispers and insinuations.
And, finally summing up, it said,
"that the treatment of the Japanese
is a grave comment on the manage
ment of immigrant labor on these
plantations." But as with all arti
cles written with such a spirit, the
editor overreached himself. And it
is with this latter statement that I
propose to deal here, and the best
way to do it, 1 think, is lo let the
"immigrant labor" speak for them
selves. Hence I append the follow
ing statement which was given with
a spontaneousness impossible except
where the best understanding exists
between the employer and the cm
ployed. E. M. Walsh.
Paia, Sept. 3rd, 1885.
We the undersigned immigrant
laborers, working on the Paia Plan
tation from one year to three years,
hereby certify that we are contented
and that our treatment by Mr.
Walsh, the manager, is good, and
that there is no kicking or striking
of the men by the hums on this
The Japanese who came here last
March and left last week, worked
among us during their stay here and
wo would have known if the Iunas
had been in the habit of kicking or
striking them, and we do positively
say that all such statements arc
Signed by seventy-two Portu
guese. Heartily endorsed by seven
Germans on the plantation one year.
Endorsed further by thirteen other
workmen, mostly Hawaiian. The
signatures as originally written have
been handed us for publication, but
it is hardly necessary to print them.

Harmony Lodge, I.O.O.F., 7:30.
The Bt't.t.r.Tix several months past
threw out a suggestion of the feasi
bility of taking measures for the
settlement of idle lands on these
islands by the introduction of Scotch
crofters. The Advertiser of last
Saturday hoes in a good row on the
same field. Our contemporary says:
" If sheep fanning is to become a
leading industry in these islands,
we must introduce men who are ac
customed to handle sheep. Neither
Japanese, Portuguese nor Chinese
understand much about sheep, the
handling and care of which are fam
iliar to Scottish tenant farmers and
shepherds. There arc tens of thous
ands of acres in these islands suited
for sheep raising, which are now of
very little value to any one, but
which might be made to add largely
to our exported wool. Why not
utilize that country, and introduce a
stalwart race of men and women who
would do good to themselves and to
There is not, perhaps, in the
world a class of small farmers whose
settlement on " now unused lands
would contribute to the development
of agriculture and every other in
dustry of which it is the basis, than
these Scottish crofters. "The
wealth of nations," says the great
political economist, Adam Smith,
"is in labor." Inured to hard
labor from their infancy, the crofters
might be depended upon to verify
the labor theory in the most satis
factory manner. The accounts given
1)3' the editor of the Inverness Celtic
Magazine during a visit to America,
a few years ago, of the stern per
severance and indomitable industry,
backed by herculean physical
strength of these people, would have
been almost incredible had their
correctness not been established by
being published uncontradicted to
the world, as well as corroborated
by abundant testimony from other
reliable sources. A class of people
who arc capable of almost super
human feats of industry only to ob
tain the barest means of subsistence
under land tenures that arc the em
bodiment and quintessence of the
most outrageous and execrable
forms of landlordism, could not fail
to become a most valuable class of
citizens under conditions favorable
to the advancement of their own in
terests by providing for them the
assurance of comfortable homes for
themselves and their descendants
for all future time. Assignments of
labor to such a class of immigrants
need not be limited jo sheep raising,
or to any one branch of industry.
A people of their stamina would be
very quick to learn the methods of
the tropics, and would soon master
the details of any branch of agricul
ture giving promise of good returns.
Not tho least important argument in
favor of a large crofter immigration
to the future of this kingdom is the
fact that with them would be intro
duced a strong moral clement. The
sturdy rectitude and law-abiding
character of the crofter would bo a
grand accession to the best forces of
civilization. To this may be added
the fact that they are not a people
of migratory habits. Nothing but
the iron paw of the lion of landlord
ism will move them away from their
native shores. And onco settled as
landed proprietors in their own
right, they might bo depended upon
to stity, to adapt themselves to tho
country and become solid supporters
of ity best institutions,
Suppose that the newspaper fra
ternity of Honolulu should take a
month's vacation! No papers would
cause a thousandfold more grumb
ling than papers with " nothing
new" in them.
The Chinese at Sacramento are
said to escape malaria by boiling the
river water before using it. Per
haps there would be less sickness in'
Honolulu if the reservoir water was
boiled before using. The mud in it
is so line that even filtration docs
not wholly eliminate it, but boiling
might make the earthy matter in
nocuous if not nourishing.
It is manifestly the duly of every
local capitalist, and every resident
correspondent of capitalists abroad,
to look into the colonization scheme
that has been mooted here. If in
vestigation leads them, as we believe
it will, to regard it as a promising
investment, then their patriotism,
native or adopted, should do the
rest of making them practical pro
moters of the project, in every way
open to them.
