LETTER OF THANKS.
F.oni: Rui.i.etis : -
H is with pleasure we tender
thanks through your columns to
('apt. Cameron of the steamer Ha
waii, as nlo to purser (J ray of that
vessel, tor their kindly assistance in
the despatch of a mail from l'aau
linti to Honolulu. The, Hawaii was
ready lo sail, hut Capt. Cameron
lowered a boat for the mail. There
wore some letters of importance In
the package, which we wished to
roach Honolulu in lime for the re
turn trip of the steamer Iwulani.
Capt. Cameron and the pur-.fr will
please accept our thanks for the
In the 1. C. Advertiser has ap
peared a letter under the above
heading, signed "l'ublie Good,"
nepricaung me importation oi Ital
ian cheap labor, and advocating, in
stead, the introduction of Kugllsh
speaking people. He says, "Kng
lisli laborers could be obtained for
about S20 a month and they could
do double the woik ol a Jap."
1 would ask "l'ublie Good"
whether he has ever seen an Eng
lishman, or any while man, work ot
manual labor in the Holds in a tropi
cal country? From my own experi
ence, and from information gained
from otlusi -, the darker skinned
races alone pos-o-s the physical en
durance necessary to do snob woik
as cutting cane, etc., under a tropi
cal -uii. The white man might
stand it for a few month", but his
constitution is of that kind that he
is hound to Miceumb sooner or later.'
I will go still further and say that,
even if he .should ptove equal to
working in the cane Holds (lo all in
tents and pin poses on an equality
with .laps and Chinese), the in
herent pride of It i race would
quickly cause him lo rebel against
a position that must appear to him
degrading, and small blame to him
That the labor question is a most
serious one with planters and others
at, these Islands, we must all admit,
and the question to tie studied out
is whether the dillicullies in'the way
if obtaining an adequate supply of
laborers are insurmountable? heav
ing the white man out, except in
the capacity of lunas or skilled
laborers (the only places they can
be properly assigned), and looking
around to "all available sources of
supply, I find:
1st', Chinese. An unlimited sup
ply at low wages. Dillieultios are
proper restriction and moans to pre
2nd, .Japanese. A very dosirablo
class, and, pcihaps. the most avail
able. Good workers, generally
quiet, steady, and obedient to or
ders. Desertions occur from time
to time, but the .laps do not possess
the same iacilities for concealment
as the Chinese, and are more easily
loeognized. It has been said that
restrictive laws will be passed, limit
ing the number to bo admitted, but
nothing dellnito ou tliib point is yfi
.".rd, 1'ortiiguesc from the Azores
and .Madeira. The supply is pretty
well exhausted, and, befnro more
can be got, better inducements will
have, to be given. The contract sys
tem is not looked upon favorably by
ilie Portuguese authorities, as being
allied to sluvoiy. On many planta
tions the Portuguese arc preferred
to other nationalities. At Uracil
and other places the inducements
offered are belter than )iere.
till. Indian coolies. Diplomatic,
mailers inlerpose dillicullies that
are not likely to he overcome.
rnh. Polynesian. Tlio South Sea
Islands have been largely denuded
of natives for Fiji, Queensland, and
elsewhere. A limited number might
ho still obtained it desired.

We of Hawaii of late years have
placed too much dependence in the
sugar industry for our own good.
With the prospect of the greater
part, if not all, of the duty on sugar
being taken off, by the American
Congress, it behooves us to look the
matter square in the face and ask
ourselves, "What next?" Too much
has been invested in this one indus
try alone, to the absolute neglect of
all others. .Wo do not intend at
this time lo enlarge on other availa
ble agricultural industries, but on
the almost entire- want of manufac
Nowhere in the civilized world -is
there such absolute waste of water
power as on iIkm is.lands. .And es
pecially N this tine of our district
ot Hilo. Willi the Wailuku stream
running right through llic middle of
our town, bill with one small ex
ception i- any of it power used in
manufacturing. From the lower
edge of the woods to the beach, u
distance of four miles, Hint stream
falls 1000 fce.t. .Just below the
woods i- :i line site lor taking out
tho water in this stream, which could
be used over and over again, during
the descent to tho sea. Along iu
bank" a large number of factories
might be piit up to supply us with a
homo product where now we end
out our hard-earned dollars to a for
eign land, for those very same ai ti
des we ought to and could manu
Our woods immediately back of
the town, a lorcst extending ftoni
10 to 11 miles up the slopes ot
Mauna Kea, ought to supply us with
all the koa ami oliia and oilier fine
cabinet woods, that we need to make
all our own furniture. Wo are im
porting yeaily thousands ol dollars'
worth of furniture, only because we
.11 e.not energetic enough tp erect n
good saw mill above Hie Peepoe
falls, and saw out all Ihe lumber we
need. A llunie would cheaply ti an
port it to a market or to a turinturu
faetoiy, iu the near m-mity- of our
town.' The machinery needed to
put into operation such a factory is
not e-v cost I v. Why thx-ii doe
not some one, who has the capital,
put up a .small lnill here and in con
nection with it a first-class furniture
factory. For cheap liirniture our
nenoleau offers a good substitute
for oak or ash. For Hue work Koa,
ohia, opiko, ahakca, kolea and other
pretty woods abound.
Ollice furniture, stair rails, and
such articles a-, are generally made
of black walnut, can bo made of
ohia, which so closely resembles the
black walnut, as har'dlv to be distin
guished from it. For wainsentting
and trimmings nothing looks liner
than the bright red of the opiko
contrasted with tho rich amber color
ot th'o ahakca. For mall tables
and other various small articles used
about our homes, nothing would bo
more beautiful than tbe strangely
mottled kotea. What wo want is a
saw mill oud liirniture factory right
here in Hilo. The. power for run
ning such concerns is cheap ami
sure. We import all our doois,
windows, washes, blind, etc. Win
not make them heie?
It spems to us that we can make
all these articles here, cheaper than
we can import them, and ave to
ourselves all tho money now sent
out for the same. What would wo
do without the Honolulu Iron
Works? And what that is now do
ing for the Islands, iu the line of
supplying machinery, other facto
ries ought to do In other lines.
Again, we export our raw wool, and
import woolen goods, our woolen
shirts, blankets, etc., etc. What
for? We have the cheapest power,
water, iu the world, Iu unlimited
supplies, which can bo had for use
without the building of expensive
dams to take it from the streaiiM.
Why not use it and start a woolen
mill right back o'f our town and
manufacture our own woolen at
least enough to supply our own
What wo wish is to draw tho at
tention of capitalists to this thing.
It is bound to come sooner or lator.
Why not sonic of you Honolulu men,
who have a few thousand dollars to
spare, take up the matter. Look at
our table of imports, and say why
wo should not stop that leak? Now,
as sugar Is not in tho near future,
so we believe, lo bo tho controlling
inteiest on these islands, why will it
not pay us to look into this matter
of our manufactures.? -Hilo lie
