EniToit Evening Bulletin:
Fow will voDture, I should think,
to question tho force of Mr. Iscu
borg'a nrputnents against annexa
tion from tho planters' stand
point. I read his letter with great
interest but was disappointed at
not finding any portion of it de
voted to tho other sicfe of the
question I mean tho peoplo's
side. Fiom a man of Mr. Ln
berg's admittedly broad views, I
think I was warranted in looking
for this, and I honestly beliovo
tho omission was an oversight on
his part. If his views on annex
ation and Asiatic labor as affec
ting each other and tho planter
are of interest, much more so
would bo his views on the sumo
subjects as affecting tho people of
theso islands and their future.
It may bo quite natural for a
planter to feel that there are, no
interests on tho islands worth
mentioning outside of sugar. This
is a common view and a plausible
otie. Yet thero was a timo when
wo had no reciprocity treaty, and
sugar was a very sma 1 matter
hero, and yet tho countiv not
along very nicely, and many
notably tho natives were happier
then than subsequently.
Looking buck 20 years ono can
not help thinking that this might
etill be a white man's instead of
an Asiatic's puradiso 1 If wo had
only tho fow bundled Chino-io
that wo had then, instead of tho
present hordes of Orientals, tho
native population wou'd bo twice
as numerous ub it ih. If there wore
less wealth produced, it would
at best be moio eveuly
distributed aud beneiit tho couutiy
infinitely Jnoro thnn it does now;
and there would bo a white mau's
country hero, with a clear future
for its people to look forward to,
instead of tho vory hazy
ono gathering ahead now I
Aud this brings mo back
to my point that it is a pity Mr.
Isenberg omitted to givo his views
on tho losults of annexation to tho
people of theso Islands and the
country at largo. !
Tho idea of annexation which I
believe is shared by most unbiased
people hero is that it is bettor to
stay as we are, unless thoro is
somo neee6sity for, or great and
cortain advantage in the' change.
I think 1 soo as many disadvan
tages in tho train of annexation as
Mr. Isenberg does, but what is
thoro on the other hand ? This is
whoro Mr. Isenberg stops Bhort I
Is the country being Asiatioized
or not ? How long will it bo as
things are going boforo the
Japanese starve us all out ? From
tho pooplo's standpoint those aro
tho questions on tho ouo side
.and on tho other annexation.
Mr. Isonberg says that all our
business dopends on sugar and
sugar will not prospor under an
nexation. That is to say dividends
will bo Binaller,biit tho country can
easily afford that if in return it bo
relieved to a reasonable extent of
tho Asiatic incubus. "After us the
flood," tho plautor's motto, does
not commoud itself to tho ordin
ary citi.on. Lot us assume that
some few plautuliouB would have
to go undor, tho rest would have
to pay highor wages which would
in turn uttract a better class of
labor whereby the country would
bo tho gaiuer.
It would seem that if tho plant
ers, in seokiug their owu interest,
had Bhewu mora consideration for
tho welfare of tho country at largo
which would havo cost them
very little they would not now bo
confronted with tho spectre of an
nexation, becauso thoro would bo
no call for it. It is idlo to protend
that coolio labor could not havo
boon obtained without lotting tho
timooxpirod mou looso on tho com
munity; andwhon tho present trea
ty and convention with Japan wore
drawn, the motubors of tho then
Planter Government had leu years
oxperiouce of our "Ohineso ques
tion" and acted with their eyes
Mr. Isenberg dwells on the nu
suitability and expense of white
labor hero, and tho necessity of
coolio contract labor. This is
tho only portion of his letter
which seems open 1o question, as
wo havo always understood that
tho Portuguese wero second to
nono as plantation hands; aud as
to tho expense thoro aro at least
two ways of looking at it. Ono is
that for overy dollar saved to the
planter by his cheap labor, tho
country is tho loser by two. If
tho change cost tho planters a
year's dividends it would bo a
Binall prico to pay for tho lifo of
tho land that has enriched thorn.
Howover, I imagino no ono
would complain, or grudgotho
plautors their cheap coolio labor,
if thoy kept it to themselves, in
stead of, for tho suko of securing
better terms or else from pure
wantonness, lotting it looso - on
tho unfortunate country. Their
watchword has b'een tho reverse
of " live aud lot live," which is all
peoplo ask of them.
Annexation with all its draw
backs would at least givo us all a
more equal show.

The lusl pprf,rtaneo of the

Opera Houstt ait night and made
glad the hearts of tho manage

and ho yvis justly entitled to the
honors 6f thoevoning. Of courso
it would bo unfair to compare
him as Myles O'Hara in "Tho
Jilt" with Diou Boucicault, who
wrote tho play aud created the
character, and yot thore are many
points in his concoptiou of tho
part which will allow at least of
favorable comparison. M r. Fra w
ley's brogue is natural aud easy
aud never out of placo or too pro
nounced', and tho character is ouo
well suited to his style, which is
always unmistakably Frawleyan,
if ouo may coin a word for
tho purposo. As tho young
Irish sportsman who owns horses
aud rides races for puro love of
honest sport, Mr. Frawloy sur
prised his audience, especially
those who havo seen him only iu
subordinate parts. There are fow
tnon iu his position who would
not put themselves forward much
more than Mr. Frawley has done,
but ho ovidently knows what ho
is about and gives tho peoplo just
onoughof his acting to make
chom wish for more. v.-

little bit, nor did Miss Lansing

Whilo their lovo - making was
much in ovidonco, it was so well
done as never to bo nauseating or

As Colonel Tudor, Sir Bud
loigh's old uucle, Mr. Maclyn
Arbucklo scored auothor success,

character of tho shortsighted
curato who is not averse to put

raco wheu ho can got a sure tip
