Describes the Reaction
Planters on Annexation,
Exposes the Hypocrisy of Hie Anti
Lottery Cry Against the Queen.
Telegraphed from San Francisco to the
New York Herald.
Honolulu, April 2, via San Piian
cisco, May 2. 18911. Annexation has
lost ground hero in tho last fow days
among thoso iutorosted in planta
tions. An outspoken man said tho
"It is tho plain truth that wo aro
all sugar planters because wo all de
pend upon sugar. Tho planter
classes, thoreforo, begin to see that
with annexation their labor supply
will bo cut oil at both ends, rortu-
guese, Ulnneso anil Japanese will
llock to tho continont aud United
States laws will prohibit tho plan
tors getting in now supplies. It is a
wonder thoy did not think of this
boforo, but thoy woro toltl by some
ono that tho United States would bo
so anxious to annex them that Con
gress would allow them to continue
the importation of contract labor
ers." iiuiumxa in more laborers.
Those who still cling to annexa
tion aro now hurriedly sending to
China aud Japan for more laborers.
Botwoou three thousand and four
thousand Japanese have already
lieon ordered, and I don't know how
many thousand Chinese, but some
planters have boon, 1 am told, in
consultation with loading Chinese
hero this week to seo how thoj- can
most quickty get oven a goou num
ber of Chinese laborors. These are
preferred to the Japanese for several
reasons. Thoy aro more easily con
tented, it is said, than the Japanese.
Jiut the talk is loss oi annexation
and more of a protectorate. Tho
shrewder planters think that, while
annexation will deprive them of
thoir laboring force, and so, thoy
acknowledge, kill tho sugar indus
try, if thoy can porsuado tho United
States to give thorn a solid protect
orate it will leave thorn free to im
port laborors of every raco and kind
and oblige tho United States to land
troops and otherwise interfere when
ever thoy (tho planters) ask it. In
this way, as tho old saying goos,
thoy hope to eat thoir cako and
SPIIECKELS TALKS TO PLANTERS.
Mr. Clans Sprockets, who camo
down a week ago, has been busy
looking ovor the situation and talk
ing with the planters ever since. Ho
said to a number of those yestor
dny: "You want annexation. Well, if
you should gut that it would o'nlj'
ruin you and us all. AYo cannot
trrow suiiar without imported and
contract labor, and tho laws of tho
United States forbid that.
"Annexation would turn tho isl
ands into a cow pasture and ruin tho
sugar industry. Tho Chinese, Japa
nese and l'ortuguuso you havo now
would as soon as possible leave you
for tho 1'acilic coast under annexa
tion, where thoy would better them
selves, and you would bo forbiddon
to bring in more."
A planter replied that if thoy
could not havo Chinoso thoy would
import Germans, Norwegians, white
laborers. Mr. Sprockels very sousi-
' Germans aud Scandinavians,
everybody knows, cannot work in
our sugar fields on account of tho
climate. That is, therefore, out of
tho question, and wo aro loft to Asia
tic labor, which, uudor the laws of
tho United States, is prohibited. But
as to getting in uormau and bcaudi
uavian labor, how could you? If wo
are annexed we shall have hero a
Labor Commissioner. Can the class
of Gorman or Norwegian laborers
you require pay thoir own passage?
No; you will havo to pay that.
"And when tho ship comes in tho
Labor Commissioner says to tho first
ono who lands, 'Where aro you go
ing?" "Ho answers, 'lo .Mr. bpreckels
" 'What for?' "
"'To work there.
" 'Who paid your passage?' "
" 'Well,' says tho Labor Commis
sioner, 'you can't land, You will
havo to go back. This is an attempt
to ovado tho Contract Labor law,
and that's the ojul of it.'"
1 showed tho above to Mr. Sprock
ets, who pronounced it correct and
authorized mo to make it public, lie
added that Japane.-e are obtained,
not by individual planters, but by a
convention botweon tho Japanese
government and that of Hawaii, anil
by tho government, therefore, for
the planters and on contract for
laborers of three years and not
many .Misi'iui unions.
Of course the town is full of ab
surd milium that tho Queen will ab
dicate in favor of Iter niece, who is
in Kiiglniid; that Congress will give
the planters thu right to import
Chinese and other contract laborors,
&c., and it is said that tho "army,"
like a true Pnctorian guard, is de
manding inoro pay. It is a fact that
tho Portuguese aro respectfully, but
vory firmly, demanding a placo in
tho provisional government for thoir
nationality or thoy will disband
thoir volunteer and unpaid company.
If those silly planters do not make
hasto in settlement tho natives, tho
Japaneso and perhaps tho Chinoso
labor will demand similar recogni
tion. Certainly tho natives ought to
havo a place. It is reported to mo
that tho provisional govorumont
oeoplo havo suggested to Judge
Widomann, a Gorman resident horo
for more than fifty years, and a man
of largo intluonco over tho natives,
that if ho will accept a placo shall
bo niado for him in tho provisional
govorumont. Ho is opposed to an
nexation, aud tho offer, if it has boon
roally made, is significant.
I havo just seou a letter from .
planter in the island of Kauai, tho
most fortilo of tho group, which re
lates that most planters there want
annexation, with an agreement that
contract labor shall bo specially
permitted. But thoy want uo an
nexation without contract labor.
This planter's letter goo3 on to say
that thoy sent a delegate to Hono
lulu to say this to Commissioner
minister stevens' intrigue.
Minister Stevens has been engaged
all tho last week in an intrigue hav
ing for its object to alarm the Queen
and cause her to abdicate. Mr.
Dole, head of tho provisional gov
ernment, has boon, it is understood,
working with tho American Minister
at this enterprise aud reports have
been set alloat that President Clove
laud wishes her to make a cossion of
tho islands to tho United States;
that Commissioner Blount would bo
pleased if sho did; that Mr. Blount
is going away soon; that ho intends
to land troops again and hoist tho
American Hag; that ho is unhappy
over tho situation; that ho is afraid
to leave hero oven to visit some of
tho other islands without first put-
ting an American garrison in posses
sion ol Honolulu, aim so lortli.
These reports havo boon industri
ousPy circulated in the hope that
tho poor Queen's abdication would
be hastened or effected thereby. It
is hardly necessary to say these re
ports are absolutely false, but in
this queer gossipy little spot tho
daily crop of rumors is vory large,
anu people otherwise reputable uo
not hesitate just now, if political
exigencies seem to require it, to sot
afloat tho wildest and most improb
the notorious lottery dill.
To show now what can be done
hero unblushingly by otherwise de
cent people, let me toll you tho droll
story of tho notorious Lottery bill.
Concerning the passage of that bill
Mr. Stevens wrote in a published
despatch of January 18:
"Immediately after the Bostou and
myself had loft Honolulu tho un
scrupulous adventurers around tho
Queen improved tho opportunity to
push through the Legislature an as
tounding lottery franchise."
In tho same despatch ho spoaks
further of the lottery legislation as
a lottery bribe. Tho annexationists
aud provisional government people
have also made a groat outcry. Tho
iniquity of this lottery bill and tho
wicked and unscrupulous gang of
adventurers who urged aud bribed
tho Queen aud legislative body into
this sinful stop, the' havo loudly
proclaimed as oue of the chief cases
whj' thoy think good government
under tho Queen impossible any
You will scarcely boliovo it, yet it
is a solemn and ridiculous fact that
petitions to the Legislature and the
Queen urging, and in some cases de
manding, the passage of tho Lottery
bill, were opotily in circulation some
days before Mr. Stevens loft in tho
Bostou, so that ho could hardly havo
oueu ignorant oi mom, or oi mo
further fact that thoso petitions,
which 1 havo seen, were signed by
about eight hundred aud sixty per
sons, almost all white men, most of
whom are to-day lond mouthed an
nexationists, while some aro actually
members of tho provisional govern
ment or ollico-holdors under it.
Yet every man Jack of them now

tho enormity of tho Lottorj' bill, aud
i sure tho future rule of tho consti
