Tho New Zealand Herald, pub
lished at Auckland, has tho fol
lowing interviow with Dr. Dounld
McLenuan, lately of Honolulu, in
its issue of September 23:
.THE LAHOlt QUESTION.
'Affairs iu tho Hawaiian Isl
ands,' said he, 'are moving along
quietly, and have been doing so
Biuce tho quieting down of the
passions excited by the insurrec
tion of January, 1805? Tho-augar
plautors have made largo ,proiits
tho last season, from abundant
crops nnd high prices. Yet the
.general run of people for in
stauce,itho white and .native me
chanics, and small cultivators of
tho Boil nover Beem to havo con
ditions of life improved for them.
The principal reason for this may
bo suminod up in two wordB
Asiatic competition. Not that
there is a large inflow of Asiatics
already equipped to en tor tho
smaller industries nnd trades. No;
Chinese and Japanese are intro
duced, first, to supply the alleged
"necessity of cheap labor." They
come in bteamship loads of GOO to
2000, and have to sign three year
contracts for either agricultural
or domestic labor. On tho com
pletion of their contracts, however,
they are free to enter Honolulu
and tho smaller towns of the
group. There they take up car
pentering, tailoring, blacksmith
ing, carriage-making, storokeep
mg. or truck gardening, according
do their bents and capacities. The
result of tins process has been a
steady pressure of the native and
whito workingmeu toward the
wull. Lii6t year there were 51
more departures thun arrivals of
foreigners, other than Chinese,
Japanese auu Portuguese, tho tig
ures being 1G78 .arrivals and .1729
departures. There wore, howevorj
34 arrivals loiwooepiirtureBot
unrneBO, an excess ot o)o uui
neso arrivals; 2878 arrivals to 1727
departures of Japancso, an oxcess
of 11-10 Japanese arrivals; and 805
arrivals to 4.4 departures of Por
tuguese, nu excess of Portuguese
arrivals of 7G1. Although tho
Portuguese belong to the civilised
races, who aro welcomo to the Isl
ands, as contributing n usoful
element for building up tho coun
try, their excess of arrivals in tho
passenger statistics of Inst year is
not to bo taken as disproving the
diminishing of tho element mak
ing for civilization.'
'Becausotho Portuguese immi
grant and tho adult portion of his
family begin iu Hawaii as con
tract laborers on tho sugar plan
tations, and when their terms of
contrnct aro expired a large pro
portion of them go to nggravato
tho crowded condition of tho ordi
nary labor mniktit in Honolulu.
Whilo u goodly portion of the
Portuguese aro scratching up a
fair living in tho cultivation of
modest homestendB, that nationali
ty, as a whole, is fooling tho push
of the Mongolian horns, that press
other European and tho native
working class to tho back fence.
Iu tho midst of the lato session of
the Legislatute a procession of
half a thousand and odd Portug
uese of Honolulu marched into
tho Executive grounds to present
an "unemployed" momorial to the
Govern mont. Tho very weok bo
fore I left Honolulu thero wore
complaints in tho nowspapors that
Japanese labor was employed in
executing Government contracts
for public works. It haB become,
indeed, a caso of "dog eat dog," as
a friend of mine put it iu a publio
'But I havo drifted away from
a statement, apparently in mitiga
tion of tho labor situation.'
What i8 that?
' Chinese labor is now only ad
mitted under conditions requiring
the ltiborors to depart tho couu- ,
try whon tho terms of their con-
tract havo oxDirod. unless, indeed,
thoy re-contract for a fresh term,
as exclusively agricultural or dom
estic laborers. From what you
know of the wily Mongolian, how
over, you may easily imagine that
Uipbo safeguards iue likely to be
evaded in cases without number
Another loopholo for tlioir ndmia
eion is a provision -for giviug six
months' residence permits to Ohin
esn merchants, tourists, studonts,
etc. Once, the Board of Health
oflieials took uote of a renmrkabt
inorenso in the number of Chinese
burial certificates filed wheu there
was no epidemic apparent. In
vestigation rev tiled tho fact that
dummy funerals were being con
ducted, the names of tho regis
tenul dearly departed funnily
spoiling the same as )ho90 of hold
ors of six months' residence per
mits. People capable of devising
this species of coach and four to
drive through restriction Acts are,
it is needless to observe, equal to
the occasion wuli inventions that
may not be so easily detected.
With regard to tho Japanese, tho
case is altogether different. The
only protection against tho littlo
brown mou is of a negative ua
turo. That is, they will only stop
coming iu wholesale, by shiploads,
when the planters stop bringing
them into tho country. For the
twelve or fifteen thousand now iu
the Islands there is no check
against tueir entering into any
mo ot industry
they may fancy,
after the expiration of their plan
tation lnbor contracts. It is well
known that for some years tho
Japanese Government has insisted
upon tho equal rights of His Im
perial Majesty's subjects in Ha
wnii with tho subjects or citizens
of auy other country. Tho claim
includes the right of full citizou
Bhip for any Japaneso who may
desiro to acquire it, and can show
tho requisite qualifications.'
'Queen Liliuokalani,' went on
)r. McLennan, 'is living iu lady
like retirement. Having abdicat-
fvl in nnnA fiiitli liuinrr n ilovnnf
rnmi PonR;Htnnt nhriati.fn aim will
nover aid or countenance any
moVemeut for restoiation of tho

nativo Hawaiiaus, forgetting an
old factional dispute at her
brother's accession iu 1872 when
a majority of tho Legislature
chose him in preference to Queeu
Emma would practically with
ono voice hail with joy any dis
pensation of Providence that
might call her again to reign over
her people. Thoy do not want
annexation to tho United States.
Hawaiiaus, as a last resort, would
welcome a roturn to tho former
order with the Que.u's niece,
Princess Kniulani, on tho throuo.'
'Is thero auy
definito tnlk of
'No; but tho nir, when I loft
Honolulu, was full of conjectures
or romotmug important nnDio to
take placo before long. Ono
stroug surmiso was that President
Clevelnnd would have more to do
about the Hawaiian question ere
ho surrendered oilico next March.
Prevalent gossip at my departure
had it that when President Olevo
land decided to lcstoro the mo
naichy, his Secrotary of Stato
notified the Governments of the
other Powers of his purpose. But
tho decision having not boon car
ried out, it is believed by nmuy
that awl; wind queslious on tho
business havo been propounded,
especially by Great Britain and
France, signatories to tho treaty
ANNEXATION NOT WANTED.
' Tho real molivo of tho over
throw,' Baid tho Doctor, 'was two
conts a pound on sugar.'
How is that?'
'I'll toll you. Undor tho treaty
of reciprocity botwoon tho two
countries, Hawaiian raw sugar is
admitted duty free in tho United
States. While there was a heavy
duty on sugjir in tho American
tariff, Hawaiian sugar was paid
for in San Francisco on tho basis
of the price of Cuban sugnr, of
similar stnndard of strength, in
New York, with tho amount of
duty added to the price. But tho
malign MoKinloy J3ill knocked
the duty off all raw Rucnr, and
with it tho advantage hold by Ha
waiian planters. At tho Bnme time
tho American planters were given,
iu placo of tho duty, the protec
tion of two cents a pound bounty.
If the Hawaiian Islands, then,
wore annexed to the United States,
the Hawaiian planters would come
iu for tho two cents a pound boun
ty. Ab thoy had been threatened
with blue ruination by tho effect
of the MeKinley Hill,
it is easy to ,
seo how readily they would throw
their powerful influence iu the
scale on tho side of revolutiou
whenever tho turmoil in domestic
politics gavetheiu the opportunity.
Now that tho American sugar duty
has been restored and tho bounty
abolished, there is not one planter
in a hundred who wants annexa
tion. Ohjijol Annexation would
not only jjpt improve tho promo
tion of their sugar, enjoyed in tho
American market, but it would
destroy tho contract labor system
at one fell swoop.'
