THE LABORERS' BILL.
A special committee has intro
duced to the Legislature a bill "re
lating to the licensing of laborers."
It is a masterly attempt at oppres
sive legislation. The statutes of no
free country can show a parallel.
The author of any similar measure
in the United States of America,
Great Britain, or any British Con
stitutional Colony would be so ef
fectually buried by public contempt
and contumely, that, (to use the
expression of the successful candi
date at the Convention), the sound
of Gabriel's horn would never reach
This bill aims to compel every
man in the kingdom, except those
serving under contract made
through the Board of Immigration,
who cams his bread by the sweat of
his brow as a common laborer, to
procure from an appointed ofllcial of
the Government a liccuce to labor,
for which he must pay the sum of
25 cents. The person applying for
a licence must at the same time pro
duce a photograph of himself, at his
own cost, of course. Tlio bill makes
it unlawful for any person to hire
anyone to perform common labor by
the day or otherwise for remunera
tion or wages who has no licence.
Each electoral district of the king
dom is to be a licensing district,
with one or more licensing officials,
and the licence granted in one dis
trict will be useless in any other, 60
that the laborer will have to take
out a new licence and provide n
fresh photograph whenever he re
moves from one district to another.
A man who wauts a licence to labor
in a district, and is prepared to
comply with the rccpiircd conditions,
,may be refused ; because by the re
quest of three-fourths of the legal
voters of any district, the number of
licences for that district may be
limited. Any laborer able to work
found without a licence, no matter
whether he has the means to procure
such a document or not, may be
punished for vagrancy.
The foregoing are the main fea
tures of tho bill, which we trubt arc
here presented with more clearness
than in tho document itself; other
wise yyo Jmvo labored in vnlu, nml
our renders' intellects will bo taxed
to the utmost to understand what
wc have written.
It comes to this: A man cannot
work at ordinary labor for pay with
out a licence ; n man cannot employ
another to work at ordinaiy
labor for pay unless the woikman
has a licence ; a man cannot get a
licence to work if two-thirds of the
voters of his district object ; every
laborer must contribute to the sup
port of photographers ; any laborer
may be sent to jail for being so un
fortunate ns to be destitute of the
meaii9 to procure a picture of him
self and a licence. A magnificent
bample of linpot law. constructed by
a set of linkers.
This proposed labor licence law is
not, after all, an unmixed evil.' It
makes an opening for the genteel
unemployed. Kvery electoral dis
trict must have "one or more" ofll
cials for granting licences, and these
olllcials receive 25 cents for each li
cence, which amount they retain as
their fee. It may seem a rather
small sum for the recipient, but a
single plantation with 1,000 labor
ers contributes $2")0 at the start, for
a couple or three days' work. Here
is employment for those who have
so often complained of bavin, per- I
fnrmnil (nn Innnrimis 1nik nf "n.nr.
vying a rifle" without compensation.
The bill is also a genuine streak of
gold for the photographer, lie is
more benefited than the olllcial, be
cause he is not going to do his part
of the work for 25 cents per head,
nor for ten times that amount. But
perhaps the Government will under
take this job, and do it wholesale.
That would be in keeping with its
poi and light policy.
But the laborer niiibt suffer. The
bill is especially constructed for his
oppression. "What matter? In olden
times he was considered "worthy of
his hire;" but not now and in the Ha
waiian Islands. Here a special com
mittee of the Legislature of the
kingdom would compel the poor fel
low to buy a licence and a picture
before he is allowed to work for
hire. "Whether Hawaiian, Asiatic,
Portuguese, European, or American,
if he is a laborer, this is the indig
nity to which the special committee
wishes to subject him.
A poor iellow turns up in Hono
lulu "stumped," without a cent in
his pocket, and scarcely a rag to his
back. Work may be abundant, and
the man may be both able and will
ing to do it. But he has neither
photograph nor licence, and is des
titute of the means to procure either.
Therciorc no one can employ him,
and he must go to jail as a vagrant,
because he is denied the right to
"We are not informed who are the
gentlemen comprising the special
committee which brought in this
bill. "We simply see at the top of
the first page that it is "by special
committee." Perhaps they are very
nice men, and no doubt they are, in
their proper sphere. But legislat
ing for a mixed population in a free
country is evidently not their forte.
One such example as the bill "relat
ing to the licensing of laborers" is
enough for a lifetime. We will not
insult the Legislature as a whole by
supposing that it will otherwise than
"indefinitely postpone" this ridicu
lous measure; but feel impelled to
advise the gentlemen of the special
committee never again to attempt
law-making. If you must remain
in the House, look as wise as you
know how while there, but keep per
fectly still tho balance of the ses
sion. You have made one dread
fully bad break. Be careful not to
make another. You don't know how
contemptible you appear in the eyes
of sensible men. You may possi
bly redeem yourselves in the end by
long silence, severe penance, and
deep and protracted meditation.
Heaven help you, gentlemen !
The "crack six-oarcd crew" of
the Yacht Coronet went over to tho
King's boathouse yesterday after
noon, and raising their oars, crossed
them, as a challenge for a race. The
action was repeated in front of the
Myrtle Club House. The Captain
and another member of the Myrtle
Club promptly accepted tho chal
lenge, but tho Coronet backed out,
with the cxciibo that she had lost
two of her men. Boating men who
have watched the Coronet's crew
pulling, say that each man pulls for
himself, not earing about the others.
A Myrtle man who had taken tho
Coronet's pntelico time was heard
to say this morning that ho could
laiso a crow of four who could run
away from tho yacht's six.
The prospects of a race between
tho Vandalia and Coronet are grow
ing better Tho Vandalia was out
practicing this morning.
