DANIEL LOGAN, Editor.
FRIDAY, OOT. 23, 1896.
In tomporato but forcible dic
tiou, "Mochanio" cnlla upon tlio
Governtnont to iutorvono foi tlio
protection of citizons from Asiatic
labor competition on public works.
Thoro may bo no help for the
wrong in privato contracts. De
fonsivo organization 1ms been
tried and found wanting. If
the largo contractors themselves
should associate under an agree
ment to make all bids on a white
labor basis, they would bonofit
themselves in the long run. Com
petition of Asiatics nt the bottom
is bound to rise to tho top, and
cvontnnlly tho employers as woll
as the employed will be Asiatic.
"When it comes to tho expenditure
of public money, however, tho vot
er and tho supporters of tho lie
public, prospective as well as pre
sent, have u right to look for pro
tection against the competition of
Aaiutic cheap labor. Salaries of
members and ollicinls of the Gov
eminent are voted by tho people's
representatives on a fair and oven
liberal scale, iu keeping with tho
conJitious of civilized living here.
Thou why should not the working
classes, who form tho backboue of
tho commonwealth, bo equally en
titled to have all employment on
public works reserved to them atn
fair standard bf wages? If tho
Government do not adopt such n
policy, tho people should have a
law passed to fix tho Htandard of
wages for both skilled aud uuskill
cd labor on public works, whether
tho labor is omployed by tho Gov
orumont or by contractors. Such
a law would at least in public
contracts put au end to tho cut
throat competition, on an Asiatic
labor basis, which is driving out
of the country one of the most val
uable elomonts iu its industrial,
euoiul and political upbuilding and
One of tlio principal members
of the Australian cricket team in
formed a BuM,KTiN representative
that they would luivo boon glad to
play an exhibition game in Hono
lulu, without any remuneration,
for the sake of promoting the
sport here. It is a pity that such
a uhoiice should have been missed.
Goto's remedy for leprosy has
on trial obtained groat favor in
San Francisco. It remains to bo
seen whether ultimate results will
be ns disappointing as they wore
in Hawaii. Should the contrary
bo the case, tho inforonco will bo
foir that tho remedy was not ade
quately tested in this country.
Alexander Cookburn, who is
ougaged in tho industry, is tho
author of tho suggestion to have a
coffee inspector appointed. Ho
offered it through the Commercial
Journal. The Bulletin is glad
to give credit to whom it is due.

In a fow wooks, at most, plans

Government intends to make tho
successful bidder agree to em

building or getting out material

Tho question of Asiatic compe

serious moro of a menace to tho
entiro community than many pao

Certaiuly not to the Chinese aud
Japanese artisans. To whom do
tho various Government officials
owe their position ? Not to their
This lottor is not writtou in a
captious spirit but is intended to
show tho olotnont of danger that
lurks iu tho employment of a
cheap alieu, uon assimilative class
to tako tho places of mou who
would, if opportunities offered,
build homes and rear families
here, to grow up and become val
uable citizons of tho Republic. I
am n ware that tho anti Asiatic cry
has grown monotonous, chiefly
because it hns over been tho shib
boleth of the demagogue, but, tho
alarmiug increase in numbers of
Japanese and Chinese artisans
and tradesmen may woll make us
all look askanco at tho future.
But a fow short years ago our
contractors employed none but
whito or native labor. Today
ninny of thorn employ Japanese
exclusively on all stone work. I
am told, on crodifablo authority,
that all of the stono for tho new
Irwin block on Nuuanu street is
being quarried nnd dressed by
Japanese stone masons. If so
many of our contractors continuo
to employ cheap Asiatic labor, tho
remaining builders will bo oblig
ed to get tho ennio class of work
mou in order to successfully bid
against their competitors. Then
wo shall have an over increasing
numbor of idle men, many of them
charges upon the charity of the
community, aud all of thoni a
daily uioliace to law and order.
Lot tho Bulletin, which has al
ways proved to be tho conserva
tive, able and true friend of tho
working classos, again endeavor to
uiiiko tho Government see tho ad
visability of inserting nn nnti
Asiatic clause in all tenders for
mi: ainiuama's i'ni:i:trr.
Editou Evening Bulletin:
This morning's paper says that
f roight by tho Australia, duo Mon
duy, will not bo delivered until
after tho stoamor's doparturo on
Wednesday. Now this may or
may not bo correct; but why in
the mime of reason is tho steamer
timed to arrive on Mouday unless
consignees cau got at least their
perishable freight by Tuesday, in
time to ship on the iuter-island
steamers ? Does it not seom that
connection with island steamors
should bo a matter of first import
ant ? As a rule, when the Aus
tralia nrrives on a Mouday
somo of tho freight is available
for shipment on Tuosday, but
very little. But now it is sug
gested to hold it all over till
Wednesday I What will bo the
result ? Tho other islands will
Him ply havo to wait ono wool;
longer for their supplies, and ono
week's island snles of all porisha
bio goods will bo lost to tho iin
porter, who will consequently
stand an increased risk of ulti
mate loss on importations of this
class. Of courso there may bo
good reasons for this procedure.
If it is a matter of expense, I nra
sure consignees would willingly

STUBBLE DIGGERS, SHAV

TIVATORS. We want to call attention
for a few days to three ma
chines suitable for sugar land
First Avery's "Mallon"
Stubble Digger, the peer of
all sugar land implements. The
superiority of this machine
over all similar ones is evi
denced by the fact that until
this season the manufacturers
have been unable to supply
the demand for them. Their
features of absolute merit are
(a) Metal wheels with re
(b) Solid steel teeth.
(c) Great strength with
lightness of draft.
(d) Improved flanges with
ed Stubble Shaver. This
has lately been greatly im
proved and now runs on four
wheels in the furrow. The
knives can be raised or lower
ed with ease, with one lever,
without stopping the team.
Can be regulated to shave at
any depth. The knives are
protected by shields, so that it
is impossible for the mules to
be cut by them. There is no
weight on the mule's necks.
This Shaver can be turned as
short as a cart and is light
draft for two mules.
Third Avery's Improved
"Mallon" Cane Cultiva
tor This implement is used
in the culture of both corn and
cane from the first dirting of
the crop, through the entire
cultivating and "laying by"
season. Is simple in con
struction, strong, durable, light
draft, easily operated and
understood. It has the re
volving sectional discs, which
work on each side of the row,
thoroughly cutting and pul
verizing the soil. The desired
quantity of dirt thrown to the
plant is regulated by changing
the angle of discs on the drag
bar. The operator can pass
rapidly over the crop without
the trouble heretofore ex
perienced by moist earth stick
ing to the discs, cleaners being
attached 'to the axle, which
effectually prevents the discs
These three valuable planta
tion implements are now in
use at the Pepeekeo, Onomea
and Wainaku plantations and
we shall be pleased to show
testimonial letters from the
managers as to their respective
To intending purchasers we
would say that the pi ices of
these machines have been ma
terially reduced this season.
