W THE JAPANESE TREATY.
For a full quarter of a century
ending tlio ensuing quartor Ha
waii lms hrul treaty relations with
Japan such as no other western
nation has enjoyed or yet enjoys.
Various nations have lately con
cluded treaties of mutual commer
cial privileges with Japan, but
the time has not thus far elapsed
when thoy will become fully oper
ative. Twenty-five years have
Hawaiian subjects had the privi
lege of residence in any part of
Japan, nnd of doing business in
her cities and ports. Correspond
ing privileges have for the same
time been accorded Japanese in
Hawaii. The treaty under which
these fraternal relations between
Japan and Hawaii wore established
was concluded inl871,tho late Ohas
0. Harris having been tho Ha
waiian Minister of Foreign Af
fairs who attested the ratification.
Of late years, while Hawaii has
beon resting, serene, in this espe
cial distinction, tho diplomats of
several of tho great Powers have
been tumbling over each other
for precedence in gaining the in
timate friendship of Japan, tho
rapidly growing giant of civiliza
tion in the Orient. Those nations
aro in competition for tho trade of
tlio "Land of tho Rising Sun."
Hawaii haB for this quarter of a
century been in a position to got
nil tho trade with Japan that
Hawaii's resources and enterprise
could command. That this coun
try has not in past times had a
very considerable trade with
Japan is beside tho question. Per
haps not ton times in tho twouty
livo years havo subjects of Hawaii
availed themselves of the privilege
of mnking business visits, or so
Snninp. or nermnnentlv rosidinrr
In any city or port of Japan.
. o - o
I'hat makes no difference. All
tuwaiiuns have beon welcome tho
fwholo time, under tienty stipula
tions, to tho freedom of the terri
tory of Japan, from which tho
'citizens and subjects of greater
nations woro excluded. Japan has
in tho meantime become a groat
country, and is growiug greater
every day to all appenrauces. Is
this a time, then, for people in
Hawaii to start on ngitatiou for
tho repeal of such a treaty of
friendly commerce with Japan as
the leading western nations havo
Vimnn apnl-iiifT dilicontlv to obtain
and are now, in some cases,
cIobo upon enjoying? It is more
than folly, it is madness. Tho ab
rogation of tho treaty would bo
a dietinct act of unfriendliness, to
a friondly Power a Power that
iB rospectod today by tho most
powerful nations on affront that
would bo unsafo for a country in
finitely ablor f or offonso or defense
than Hawaii to offer. The only
reason that is heard at tho back of
tho incipiont agitation is that of
Japanoso competition, oxistont
and threatened, with skilled labor
in this country.
Now, competition with freo
labor from the twelve thousand
Japanese now in tho country can
not bo prevonted by tho abroga
tion of tho treaty. Nono of thom
mm uo oxpuuou uxconunrr tor en-
minality or vagrancy without giv-
ing causo of war. Neither would
tho absouco of a treaty nocossa-
rily prevent tho Government
from aiding the immigration of
more Japanese if they wero
wanted by tho planters. Tho
siap in tuo taco to Japan
would probably, however, prevent
hor allowing any moro of hor
subjects to come to Hawaii. It
might do moro for this country,
though, than was calculated, but
tho contrary of good. Tho, whole
sao introduction of Japaneso im-
migrants that has boon going on
has been under tho terms of a
labor convention concluded with
Japan ton years ago. It is this
that the agitators aro thinking
about, in all probability, tho abro
gation of which would bo a plain
enough intimation to the planters
that the peoplo did not want nuy
moro Japanese labor immigration.
If the planters wanted moro, how
ever, past experience goes to
prove that they would
have it, by hook or by
crook. As it is, tho labor conven
tion does not make it obligatory
on whs country to receive any
Japaneso immigration. It simply
provides safeguards in Japan for
the economical procuration of a
good class of agricultural labor
ers, and in Hawaii for thoir pro
per treatment and protection whilo
under contract. There is there
fore no need to abrogate oither of
tho diplomatic compacts between
this country and Japan, for saving
thoso islands from the process of
being Japanned all over. All
that is necessary to that end is for
the Government to stop importing
Japaueso. Tho country expects
nothing less from the Govern
ment, and at noxt year's general
election tho pooplo should upon
this point give no uncertain
