Fiuday, Nov. 7.
Committee -of the whole resumed
at 187, the lliitd subdivision of
Sec. 1 of the labor hill pending, as
Third. That such bearer shall
not engage in any other occupation
than that of agricultural labor.
Rep. Brown moved to add: "Pro
vided that the tarm'agricultural la
boier' shall be held to include labor
in sugar mills, rice mills and coffee
mill8,f and all labor incident hereto"
Rep, Bush held that this provision
was an infringement of tho liberty
of the Individual. No mailer if the
laborer consented to it before leav
ing China, the moment ho landed in
this country he was accorded per
sonal liberty under our Constitu
tion. The Supreme Court seemed
to evade the question on which this
Ilbuse wanted lo be instructed. He
was there pledged to protect the in
teicsts'of the working classes as
w ell as of the wealthy. This mea
sure would bring iclief to the plant
ers, hut he was convinced that,
when the contracts expired, the
Chipuse laboieis could not be de
ported without violation to our Con
stitution. He could not sec that the
entry of Chinese was a detriment
lo the natives so far us labor was
concerned, but their unrestiioted
admission was a menace to the inde
pendence of the kingdom. In an
swer to a question by Noble J. M.
Horner, as lo -whether the laborer
could not be depoited just before
the contract was out, he said the
laborer was not bound to his master
but to his contract. He moved that
the subdivision be indefinitely post
poned. Noble Widemann said the hon.
member for Koolaupoko had built a
pretty structure, hut his argument
did not support his conclusions.
He (Njble W.) wanted to know
whether our Constitution was oper
ative' in China. He. did not think
it was. Why we should not invite
Chinese to. come, if they were will
ing to come under the conditions we
imposed, he could not understand.
Thisibill was for the protection of
Hawaiians in their own country to
do the work for which the Chinese
were 'wanted." This country was a
Paradise for the Chinese, and this
bill proposed to give them a taste of
it, and then send them back if they
did not renew their contracts. The
necessity was upon us and we had
to make the best of it.
T,he subdivision was numbered
"Second" and passed as amended
by Rep. Brown,
Fourth. That if such person
shall he found out of employment at
any time during such term or en
gaged in any other employment than
that of agricultural laboieror shall
be found in this Kingdom after the
expiration of such term, he may
thereupon be arrested and held in
custody until an opportunity occurs
to return him to China.
Changed to f 'Third" and passed.
Fifth. That one-fourth of the
money uue to such person as com
pensation'far work done shall be re
tained by the employer each month
and,forw;arded by bim to the Board
of Immigration, to be by it deposit
ed in the Treasury of the Kingdom
as a special deposit, subject to the
ord(r of the President of the Board
p'f Immigration, prit ,o b,e returned
by vhe said Board to such person
upon his leaving the Kingdoin.
Prpvided, however, that such' reten
tipn.nnd deposit slia'l cease, when
ever the bum to the credit of any
one laborer shall amount to the sum
of seventy-five dollars. The said
Board shall have the authority ,to
pay the return passage of such per
; son out of such sums so deposited.
If such person shall enter into any
other employment than that of agri-cultural:1abp'rorasirajr.tftii-'
plqyer.'such mpflsy; so deposited
may ho forfeited "to llo Havyanan
Noble ''Baldwin moved to strike
out the words, "such money so de
posited' may be forfeited, to the Ha
waiian Government," and insert the
following: 4'or should the employer
or person giving the bond-provided
for in Sec. 2 of this Act bo compeJ
cd for any cause to pay the penalty
prescribed by such bond, by reason
of the failure to comply wjth the
terms thereof, that then the sum bo
deposited shall be returned by the
Board of Immigration to the princi
pal or surety of snjd bond so pay
ing said penalty." ' He considered it
was only fair to tho planter that, If
the laborer ran away and the planter
had to pay the bond, the planter
should get that money.
Noble AVidcipanp considered the
bond a farce. The planter could
not get a man out of tho country
unless tho Government helped him.
Noble Muller said a deposit of
875 was required from the laborer,
while his passage only cost 800.
That yib a premium of if on run
away Chinamen to tho planter, If
UhU uinondmupt passod ho should

Noble Muufarhinu tmhl (lint u.

ment in the House, Tho moohaeno
and working olasacs wero entitled
to protection from Chinoso competi
tion, and they had made concessions
in all reason to enable tho plantors
to obtain a supply of labor, The
question was an industrial one and
should be discussed as such without
party feeling. But it must not bo
understood that this view absolves
the legislator in any way from ins
pledges made to the working
classes. At all hazards and in all
events the material interests of Hri
wail cannot excuse political perQdy ;
and especially at this time and in
this place whore so muny faithless pro
mises have been made to thq
workingmen and brokon aftowards
in tho Interests of .one class.
But the industrial feature of tho
question in many cases had been
used ns a cover by the very class
that wanted to run eveiy thing in
their own interests. If party feel
ing had been excited on this ques
tion the planters had themselves to
thank, for during the past three
years when they had things all their
own way they disregarded the just
and reasonable demands of the work
ing classes. If now the planters
labor under n disadvantage in the
solution and settlement of the labor
problem, let them ascribe it lo the
fact that their interests have been
in ado paramount al all times,
and have crowded out of consider
ation the claims of ovciybody ehc.
If now the planters whose interests
I personally claim sjioukl, he, protect
ed, find themselves encountered by
opposition to their demands upon
this Legislature if they find their
fiiends among the working classes
loath to assist them, may it not- be)
ascribed to the position they have
taken during the last two sessions,
where they, had the upper hand ; a po
sition of direct, antagonism to,
the working classes and tevory
body else except their own
class, and of disregard of
all interests except their own?
But solving thisquestion practically
and at the same lime protecting frc
labor, the industiics of Hawaii need
not be handicapped. The planters
must meet those who are opposed to
making a Chinese colony out of this
Kingdom, at least half way, and
must pledge themselves faithfully
and honestly to cooperate w ith us
in bringing about a satisfactory re
sult. Such result can be satisfac
tory only if the further admission!
of Chinese is made under such re-1
strictions and such guarantees, that
the laborer admitted shall confne
himself solely to the work and pt r
pose for which he is brought here.
How these guarantees are obtained
is immaterial, but they must be v,a
ljd and not bogus. Personally I
am inclined to the opinion that such
guarantees can be obtained' only by
a convention with the Chinese Gov
ernment. Tlie National Reform
Party and tho present administra
tion arc both responsible to sec that
these guarantees are not empty
shadows". If a convention cannot be
made, or if delay ia making it is dis
astrous to the planting interests, let
the performance of the restrictive
conditions be secuied by other
means suggested ; but a convention
is the safest, and removes the most
serjous doubts against the carry-
ing out of the restriction.
He would . have somethingj
to say on the question ol tpe
bond, but, in the meantime, if this
provision was nullified by the amend
ment, he should vote for the in
definite postponement of the bill,
because there was no certainty that
wlen the House reached the bond
cause, they wud agree to tie
amount of tho bond in this case
Noble 'Baldwin's amendment coq'kl
not be entertained'.
Ifep. Brown was not elected on
any pledge to any party and was
therefore enabled to spoakiwith free
dom. He held that when the planter
paid his own bond on account of the
violation of torms by the laborer,
if there was any money on dopnsit
fromjthe laborer it was nothing but
Cright that the planter should get it.
- Npble Widemann, in reply to a
1 remark".majle by iNt)ble Macfarlane,
.denied jjiajtjip was actuated by self
interest in anything he said or did
in to House. The hon. Noble had
talked big of things about which he
know nothing, in regard to.bills be
fore the last Legislature. The hon.
Noble would 'fine the planter and
turdJll)eChinaman loose. He (No
blcj W.) md. done all he could,
single-handed as Ije was, in killing
the .bond business last session. He
Would ask the hon. Noble from Maui
to jvMdnw his amendment, and
thefyithey would strikeout the bond.
Noble McCarthy moved that when
the cqmmittee rise it recommend the
indefinite postponement of both
hills. lor.BCV(ira years there had
been a strong demand on the
part of the working classes for
relief from ruinous Chinese com
petition. Those classes were willing
to let the planter have all the labor

this House a Representative over

othcr hon. Noble over there talk
about the planters being opposed to
tho industrial classes. Men who
perhaps never did a day's work
in their lives calling thomsolvcs

Noble McCarthy called tho hon.
Noble to order, as his remarks were
Insulting. Ho insinuates that I am
not fit to repreient tho workingmen.
Npble Horner That(ls jus what
The Chairman asked the hop. No
ble to confine himself to tho ques
tion before tho House. He had
nothing to do with thqse who repre
sented the working classes.
1NobJc Horner Baid ho would try
to obey tho, Chair. If Nobc W,ide
lnann called himself a representative
off the workingmen ho would bow to
him, or to Noble Hind, or Noble
Wilcox, or Noblo Baldwin. These
wero tho imlustria) classes oMhe
country who produced its wealth.
Noble Baldwin would withdraw
his amendment owing to tho feeling
developed, but he slioud move for
sti iking out the bund. He was sur
prised at the feeding shpwn. Tho
object of this bill was as much In
the inti'iest of the workingmen re
prqsented by Noble McCarthy as jn
that of the planters.
Noble Macfarlane held that the
bond was the essential part of the
bill. The planters had no objection
to laying a bond on atChinese syndi
cate and should not objcot to assum
ing the same thing themselves. He
wished to protest against the1 insult
ing language of Noble Horner. Per
haps he had not done as much physi-'
cal toil as the hon. Noble such as'
ploughing, digging potatoes, etc.
but while listening to his insulting
and vulgar language, his boastit g
of iwhat "he hain't agoing", to dp,"
tone could not help regretting that
he had not spared some time from
tho soil for the benefit of his own
education. If die hadhe would haye
been on better terms of intimacy
with the English language, and
wonkhnot be convulsing this House
with his private system of gram
mar. This bill proposed to
introduce Chinese in unlimited1
numbers and without restrictions as
to their occupation in this country,
iti could not be acceptable to the
wgrking people. The present .un
satisfactory state of affairs was due
to the shiiking of responsibility by
the late Government, whioh was a
planters' administration. The 'Na
tional Reform Par.ty w?8 prepared to
meet the planters halfway, but must
Jnsist,on retaining, the reasonable re
strictions in the bill. r
Noble Muller said that if the bond
was struck out he should have ,to
move the.indefinitCipostponement of'
Noble .Widemann referred to the
"argument of threats" and intimat
ed that if the bond went in lie
should move for the indefinite post
ponement of the bill.
The Section was numbered1
"Fourth"'and passed as imthe bill.
Sixth. That theisaid bearer shall
not be entitled to exercise the rights
of an Hawaiian citizen as to the
term of residence, or employment
Whjle in the .HayraiantKingdbjn, bpt
shall be restricted to the term and
employmentnamed in such permit. '
ChangedtoJ"F,ifth" and passetl.
The, section as amended passed.
Noble Macfarlane moved to insdrt
a new section as "Sec. 2. Not more
than four thousand Chinese shall be1
permitted to cuter the Kingdom un-
i der the provisions of this Act. ' ' H o
believed this number would supply
the immediate needs of the planters.
Noble Baldwin was hopeful of
having a convention with China.
Whilp it was doubtful f foqr thou
sand would be admitted under tljis
law, it might be unwise to place
this limit on the number. For his
part he preferred almost any other
labor to Chinese, but some planters
preferred Chinese. He would move,
if they were to adopt a limit, that it
Noble Macfarlane accepted the
Rep. Brown said to place a limit
might induce the Chinese syndicate
to dictate terms.
Noble Macfai lane's only object
was to prevent an overwhelming
influx of Chinese. He was willing,
however, to leave it to the Cabinet,
which knew .the sentiment of the
country and would withdraw his
motion, He was disposed to assist
the planters in overy way, recogniz
ing that it would be disastrous to
their interests to place any obstacles
in their way to prevent their getting
labor, particularly at this time. Ho
admitted that there was forco in
Rep. Brown's argument that if a
limitation was put upon the number
of Chinese to bo introduced at this
time, it would dofeat one of tho
objects of tho planters and that was
to reduce tho price of labor from tho
high rates now being paid to Chin
ese, viz.: 826 to $i)0 per mouth.
Ho would therefore put the respon
sibility nn flit' Cabinet and trust lo
them to act in uooil faith f uy

rice was suffering from the samo
scarcity of labor as sugar.
Noblo Macfarlane assented to the
forco of the argument ngatnst a limit.
He was In favor of leaving the mat
ter in tho hands of the Cabinet.
Tho amendment was lost.
Section 2. Before issuing the
special residence permits as herein
before provided, tho Minister of,
Foreign Affairs shall require of the
persons or parties applying for tho
same to execute and deliver a bond
to him for tho use and benefit of the
Hawaiian Government, with one or
more suretios in the penal sum of

furnish the man named in such
special residence permit with agri
cultural labor so long as he remains
in the Kingdom, and that tho labor-,
er shall and wilTcomply with all the
terms and conditions named in the
special residence permit.
Noble Muller moved to insert
$200 in tho blank.
Noble J. M. Horner moved the
following as a substitute for the sec
tion: Sec. 8. The Board of Immigra
tion shall allow all allotments pf
laborers introduced for the different
agricultural industries before namejd
to 'be taken away from the Immi
gration Depot, upon the employers
or their legalized agents, with the
employee, signing a contract for Un
faithful fulfillment of the stipula
tions therein contained. To wit:
The return of all such laborers to
their own country after the expira
tion of their contract service time,
or the sending away of a substitute
in the place of said contract laborer
if he be missing and not dead, lfe
maintained that a contract was ,a
practicable security, which was not
the case with a bond.
Ren. Brown moved that the scc-
tibu pass as In the bill, excepting)
witu me pcnai sum at $iuu, anu iiie
following addition, "except as to
deportation from the country."
Noble Muller moved the followiner
amendment: ''Except as to deport-
ubiuiijiiuui iuc uuunui y, uui tutfl liu
will surrender suoh laborer t'o the
Government at the expiration of the
special 'residence permit." He was,
willing to leave the amount of the.
bond to the House.
Noble Marsden moved to strike
out all the words after lkingdom."i
.Noble Wiqemann said he was
against the bill in toto, but, in order
that this bond business could ho dis
cussed coolly and not bungled, he
moved that the committee rise to sit
again to-morrow. Carried.
Rep. Paehaole presented the re
port of the committee of the whole,
which was accepted.
