FOREIGN HISTORY WITH A LOCAL
Unreasonable and unreasoning talk
against the sugar planters of these
islands is common these days, among
a certain class of the community.
This is a product of the dull times
which we are experiencing. The
planters are the cause, according to
these people, of the depression, and
they are blamed for the state of
comparative stagnation which has
overtaken mechanical trades and
productive industries in Honolulu.
They are the friends of cheap Asiatic
labor, therefore they are tho enemies
of the white man. The planters
have too much of their own way:
they think tho country belongs to
them: they care for nobody as long
as their Interests are served. We
can do without tho planters: wo
should prosper without them; the
upon bettering their condition in life
or losing their life in the attempt.
After nearly six months' sailing they
dropped anchor in Spencer's Gulf,
on the south-western coast of the
continent of Australia. There they
landed and seven miles from the
seaside, in the centre of a lnagnifi--ccnt
plane, pitched their tents,
where now stands the city of Ade
laide. Other shiploads came and joined
the first, and a British Crown colony
was established under the government
of a British Governor.
Here was a magnificent pastoral
country extending many hundreds
of miles north and east, with tho one
drawback of liability to long seat-ons
of drought. Population, capital,
and sheep How ed in from England.
Immense tracts of land, the pro
perty of the Crown, were taken up
on long leases at nominal rentals,
and stocked with sheep. Unaided
by Government or the public, de
pending only on enterprise and
capital imported by themselves,
these squatters took possession of
trackless and ternantless deserts
which none but themselves cared to
They were confronted by a suc
cession of dry seasons from the out
set. Hardy and self-reliant, they
were undaunted by these. They
toiled and hoped year after year,
without return for their outlay or
their labor. Their capital steadily
disappeared, and the close of each
season found them as unprovided as
the last. Tea and damper were
their onlyluxuries, and a blue serge
shirt and a hat made from the leaves
of a tree the extent of their display.
They were not the men to murmer
at the visitation of Providence, or
quail before the effect of disastrous
At length a turn came in the tide
oi their affairs. Drought was fol
lowed by sulllcient rains, and reali
zation of hope long dcfei red hove in
sight. A few years of favorable
seasons, backing the previous labor
and expenditure, converted those
great wildernesses into the sheet
anchor of the colony's welfare, and
the only material guarantee of its
solvency and of foreign confidence.
As money now flowed into the
coffers of the squatter, it was
dumped into the various channels of
trade and industry, and went rip
pling on its mission to make business
people, mechanics, and laborers
prosperous and comfortable. The
carriage of the lordly squatter rolled
in thunder through the streets of
Adelaide, and passers-by uncovered
to the golden calf, happy to get a
sunstroke if they could only hear
him sneeze. His wool-bales stopped
tho tralllc, long lines of drays
marked the road to his ranch, with
empty brandy bottles, broken orna
ments, and smashed pianofortes
strewing the way, and his fifty pound
checks were lying about in every
hut more plentiful that potato peel
ings. In the shops all was bustle and
business ; tho counters were strewn
with articles of luxury, hardly ex
pensive enough for a hundred fasti
dious purehaseis, the streets were
blocked with carriages, tho side
walks with heavy swells, and the
chink of money passed like a merry
peal of bells. Tho haughty squatter
gave his orders with scornful in
difference, hut made the shop-keeper
as rich as a Jew squandered his
against the "arrogant haughty
squatter" as an "overbearing mon
opolist," and tho people clamored
for a curtailment of his privileges.
The colony now had a Parliament of
Us own,which sent out tho Surveyor-
General to value the pastoral leases.
Tho popular contention was that
"the people's grass" was monopo
lized. Parliament, in obedience to
the public demand, determined that
the squatters should pay handsomely
ior me once waste lanus which miyi
ill tho face of great difficulties and
many discouragements, had made a
tninn of wealth, and accordingly a
high valuation was set. This was
more than the sheepmen could en
dure. When they saw tho rewaul
of their patience and long suffering
snatched suddenly from their hands,
agreements violated, and themselves
aspersed, then silently and suddenly
the pastoral leases vanished, and
tho lessees passed over the borders
into the adjoining colonics,whcro the
Government was more liberal and
enlightened. The great interest on
which the colony depended abso
lutely disappeared, without a sign
or a sound.
Six months afterwards the results
were plainly and painfully apparent
in the grass grown streets of the
city of Adelaide, the silent shops,
the empty tills, the unobstructed
thoroughfares, the crowded debtors'
ward, the dejected countenances,
the seedy raiment, the empty
pockets of thrce-fouiths of the popu
lation and the thousands of unem
ployed seeking relief from an im
pecunious Government. Then it
faintly dawned upon a wooden Par
liament and a short-sighted people
what confounded fools they had
The foregoing brief historical
sketch furnishes matter for rellcc
tion to those who think the planter
is a personage whom this country
can afford to ignore. What the
sheep farmer was to the colony of
South Australia in its early history,
so is the sugar planter to the Ha
waiian Islands at the present time.
The outcry against the latter is as
senseless and short-sighted as was
the clamor against the former. The
country's dependence is on the
planters, and their retirement would
mean the retirement of four-fifths,
or more, of the white population.
The planter is, in this country,
"the goose which lays the golden
