TUESDAY, MAR. 26, 1890.
THE LABOR DISCUSSION.
At the labor conference held in
the Foreign Ofllce yesterday after
noon, and attended by mnuy gentle
men directly interested in the labor
question, but little came out in the
discussion that had not been already
pretty fully debated by the Planters'
Labor and Supply Company, at its
last annual meeting.
Mr. W. O. Smith consistently
maintained the position long ago
taken up by him, and in which he is
supported by the intelligent patrio
tism of the country, viz., that for
the future good of the country the
importation of large number.'- of
Chinese should be avoided, for al
though the opposite course might be
a temporary benefit the end would
be ruin. Mr. T. II. Davies thought
that more Asiatics would have to bo
procured, and considered "the most
practical way wis to jet a definite
number of Chinese here under definite
contracts, binding them for a ccitaiu
time, and when the contract is ended
send them away." This is the ground
which has always been taken by the
moderate anti-Asiatic portion of the
community. If the plantations need
Chinese laborers and they are the
nest judges of their own require
ments let them have as many as
they want; but when the contracts
have expired compel the laborers
either to return home or re-ship.
Mr. Davies's views received the en
dorsement of bcvcial gentlemen.
, Mr. Ilyinan -said "there were
leveuil thousand Chinese idling who,
if the laws were strict, could be got
to work." Pei haps combination
and co-operation among employers,
establishing uniformity of wages,
etc., could do a great deal in this
Mr. liishop, Mr. Mactle, and
others consideied that too many of
one nationality was not desirable.
This opinion has the support of
poneiful reasons and arguments.
The infoimation furnished by Mr.
Baldwin, to the effect that Col.
Spalding expects to send out shortly
100 Italian laborer, is acceptable.
The opinion is held by gentlemen
Ko have had experience of Italian
. lahotui that they arc boitei ad.ipted
to plantation requirements in this
cDitntiy than any other Europeans.
Tho Elele libel case reveals either
striking peculiarities of tho law or
of the way in which it U administer
ed. Mr. Arthur Johnstone, reputed
iditor ol the Elele newspaper, was
arrested on Saturday, the loth in
stant, under a warrant chaig'mg him
with having committed a libel in the
paper above named, on the first day
of the picseut month. As to who
was libeled there was no mention.
This 'was left for the alleged libeler
to conjecture. Ceilainly there can
not bo libel without somebody being
libeled, any more than there can be
murder without somebody being
killed : and the ordinary lay mind,
unacquainted with the intiicacie-.
and eccentricities of law, and guided
to conclusion only by tho simple
rules of ie.i-.ou and common sense,
cannot well understand how a charge
of libel can be made from which the
name of the poison libeled is omit
ted. No doubt, it is all clear to the
Then wheu the ca-e was called up
in the Police Com t a postponement
was asked by the prosecution, which
by. consent ol the other side was
granted. A second postponement
was solicited, by the defense this
time, and it was allowed by consent
of tho prosecution. On the third
time of calling, Monday the 21th,
the case proceeded. Up lo this
time the defendant knew- but little
more concerning the charge than
meagre infoimation contained in the
vai rant of arre-t. About the only
additional knowledge gained was
that the Minister of Interior was the
perbon libeled, and that the libel
was contained in a specified hi tide.
The defendant's counsel endeavored
to elicit paiticulars of the libel
charged, but failed. Perhaps coun
wcj was gluttonous in his desires
asked more than he had a legal
light to expect. But from the
standpoint of natural justice and
inoial right, Ids lequest was unques
tionably legitimate. The defendant
was charged with a criminal offense,
and by lining refused particulars
was denied full opportunity of vindi
cating his innocence, which oppor
tunity a court of justice is bound to
sco that everyono coming within its
pale so charged is allowed.
It is no argument to eay that the
Police Court is simply a court of
preliminary hearing, all such cases
as the one named being tried by a
higher court. Tho Police Court
commits for trial or dismisses, and
is guided in its course, by the show
ing made. Why should an accused
person be put to the expense and
aunoyaucc of n trial if he can clearly
show at the preliminary hearing that
he is innocent? And why should he
not have every chance to do so? As
previously intimated, all the pio
ceedings in this case may have been
strictly according to law Hawaiiau
law ; but to persons ignorant of law,
and at the samo time appreciating
justice and believing implicitly in
right between man and mau, the
exemplification of these principles
herein is not clear.
THE MAJORITY FICTION. '
Editok llui.Mns: Not 'being
favored with explanations by our
Honolulu missionary and political
Friend, I am still wondering how
the Friend's editor sliullled his cards
(oh, heights of impiety!) so s to
bring over the Legislative majority
to the Reform side? Here are some
cold facts that might not lie easy on
the Reform stomach. They are
claiming two of Wilcox's neatest
relations to make up that majoiity
fiction of theirs. That fact gave
them (those two) the winning otcs
even against a strongly acknow
ledged National candidate. Perhaps
they reby on something else thick
er'n Hawaiian blood to hold them
with? Remember that, when you
Reform people con oxer your sweet
little majority fiction.

Kturoi: Bi'li.i.tin: A leader in
the Adxeitier of March Kith lias
the following: "if the tieaty goes,
if the taiilf is wiped out, the white
woikingmcu of these Islands will be
wiped out too, so quickly and thor
oughly that they will leave no trace.
But the planter will still go on, with
the clump coolie labor which Asia is
waiting to send us, in numbers like
the sands ot the seashore." The
above threat or bounce, whichever
you like, might as well have been
unsaid as said, for the workingmen
know who their (riends arc, and will
stick to them, sink or swim. Fur
theimoie, the xvorklngmen and their
f i lends are nwaro that the Reform
party thiough tho Ministry would
not have come out with their whole
sale manifesto some time ago, ic
commending the restriction of Chi
nese by constitutional amendment or
otherwise, if they had not known
that they had a chance, in two yeais
from now, of annulling all amend
ments to the Constitution that may
be passed by the coming Legisla
ture. They argue, with a good deal
of truth, that if the Mlnistiy had
been sinccie in their showing up of
the great curse of over-running the
country xvith hordes of Chinese,
they would have called that extra
session, which xvas almost begged of
them at the time, nnd passed the
amendment to the Constitution ic
stiicting the Chinese, nnd .Tnnaneso
ns well. But no, don't you see if
they had called an cntra session and
passed the amendment, their hopes
would be gone of playing the nulli
fication game in two yeais fiom the
coming session. No, no, 31 r. Ad
vertiser man, thou can'st not sway
the workingmen or their frieuds, or
cause them to swerve one iota from
the path they have marked out for
themselves, as they are determined
to carry out their platform thor
oughly and to thu end, as I said lie
fore, sink or swim. And thco should
stick closer to thy Bible, and thy
Sunday Schools, and practise what

Mr. Kinney, the woikingmcu took

him, but trusted him not. Now,
then, worry youiself no more ubout

Mr. Thurston, Minister of Inte

who could not attend.
W. 0. Smith thought efforts
should be made to get other than

from Col. Spalding, who was send

speaker considered East Indians the
only alternative to Chinese and
T. II. Davies said Portuguese
came here to get a stait, but their
children would not go on the plan
tations. Political reasons would
prevent the getting of East Indians.
He was In favor of biinging in Chi

they did not renew contiacts.
