'Robert W. "Wilcox spoko to a
Bulletin represontativo again
this morning "on tho subject of
labor from Italy for the Hawaiiau
plantations. Ho referred to an
anonymous lottor in another paper,
docrying tho oharactor of Italians
from tho author's professed know
ledge of them in othor countries.
"This fellow talks," Mr. Wilcox
said, "but sayB nothing. Ho sim
ply abuses the Italians. What ho
alleges against thorn is all non
"What do our people want ?
They growl about the Chinese and
Japanese, saying thoy do not want
to make this country Asiatic. Yet
whenovor any particular Europoan
nationality is suggested as a pos
sible supply of labor, thoro are
some to run that nationality
"I know tho Italians in their
own land and in California. They
havo bepn a great blessing to that
State. The Italians havo develop
ed tho wine industry of California,
placing tho State on a par with
Italy, Franco and Spain.
"Talk is cheap. Anyone can
nbuso a nationality and call its
people drunkards or loafers or
paupers. As a matter of fact, the
Italians as a people aro sober,
industrious and frugal. If such
mon aro not wanted, and we can
not havo Asiatics, what are wo
going to do ? Shut down our
plantations, lot everything go to
the dogSj and the nation rolapso
into medievalism or something' of
"What I mean to propose is to
get the agricultural class from
Tuscany near Florence, on ao
count of the climato, which being
mild tho people would bo adapt
able to tho Hawaiian Islands.
Tho Tuscans aro among tho finest
class of industrial people. Thoy
are strong and energetic, and, I
venture to say, could do three
times os much work in a day as
almost auy nationality here.
"For 818 a month and free doc
toring tho planters can got 15,000
or moro of these people. Thoy
would make good and peaceable
settlors at tho end of their con
tracts if thoy did not engage anew
to work on the plantations. Thoy
aro economical, sober if thoy
want to drink thoy will tako a
little wino of their own making.
They would not mix up with po
litics, but if their children did so
they would havo a perfect right.
"Mons. Vizzavonn, the French
chancellor of legation hero, can
corroborate what I say, as he is a
Corsican. Italians go over to
Corsica in spring and summer by
thousands to work for 35 cents a
day. If Mr. MarqueB were here,
no aiso wouiu corroborate, my
upiuiuu ul iuubu poopio, no uoiug
an Italian himsolf. ,
"What has been said about tho
Italians in Pennsylvania refers to
tho time of tho padroni system,
which has been all done away
with. Under it tho Italian labor
era wero under taskmasters who
treated them liko beasts.
"Today Italy is under tho house
"of Savoy and is progressiva. Its
government is extending educa
tion overywhero throughout the
kingdom. It is different from
what it was under tho Bourbons.
Italy is a democratic monarchy
"Colonel Spalding, you will ro

ans at homo rocommonded thorn
for plantation labor in thoso isl
ands. With such a class of labor
in tho country, capitalists will not
bo afraid to invest thoir money.
Tho raising of wheat may ovon be

Whon tho call for tho meeting
of stockholdors of the Oahu
8ugar Company this morn
ing was issued it was sup
posed that tho nrticles of incor
poration filed at tho organization
of tho company met with the on
tiro approval of tho government,
but it was found this tnoruing
that Bitch was not tho case. Cer
tain objections havo been raised
in tho Cabinet sinco the doparture.
of the Attornoy-Gonoral aud tho
claim is made that tho articles of in
corporation givo tho company too
broad and comprohensivo a scopo
aud that tho rights of tho govern
ment aro not sufficiently guarded.
Tho objections raised by tho gov
ernment woro communicated. to tho
officers of tho corporation and
woro brought boforo tho needing
Aftor a short discussiou it was,
agreod that two of tho objoction
able clauses in tho articles should
bo strickou out but that tho cor
potation would stand ou its tights
as to tho rest.
This detoiiniuntiou will bo com
municated to tho government and
is expected to end tho matter.
Owing to this delay in tho
issuing of tho charter no elec
tions of officers could bo held and
tho meotiugwasadjournod subject
An Advisory Board was elected,
howovor, to act in coujuuetiou
with tho presont officers until all
differences with tho Government
are adjusted. Messrs. S 0. Allen,
F. J Lowrio aud Wm. Woltors
constitute tho Advisoiy Board,
and their oloction this morning is
undorstood as preliminary to their
becoming meinborB of the Board
of Directors when tho oloction
can bo held.
A prominent capitalist, who was
intorviowod by a Bulletin ro
portor, said tho government waB
afraid the now corporation would
obtain too much powor and that
as thoro had been too much lnti
tudo grnnted to corporations here
tofore it wns determined
to commenco putting somo
restrictions ou them. This was
all very well viewed from tho gov
ernment standpoint, but tho cor
porations hnd some rights aud ho
thought tho Oahu Sugar Company
waB not disposod to givo up auy
it had nttaiued. "If tho law re
garding incorporations waB de
fective lot it bo chaugod by tho
Legislature but not by an arbitra
ry ruling of tho Cabinot,"said this
goutlomnu, "and tho presont law
gives corporations tho same rights
B. F. Dillingham said tho
action of tho government would
not affect tho company a pnrticle,
boyond postponing the election of
permanent officers until tho final
approval of the nrticles of incor

which could not bo long delayed.

ABOUT YOKOHAMA HARBOR
ItU'HM.V 1'IM.IMJ 111 WITH SAM
Anltmtlllr lllnmnl fnP not I'rnildlng .
(iolne to Ki.l.p. ..
The couditiou of Yokohama
haibor is commencing to causo
alarm, dud shows what miyht bo
expected to happen in our own
port woro dredging operations Hot
kept up constantly. A Japanese
paper, Jiji, calls attention to its
rapidly doton'oratum condition
and shows why it is that shipping
is deserting Yokohama for Kobo.
"Tho harbor of Yokohama, ou
which so much timo and money
havo been spent is, owiug to the
defective organisation of the port,
not only becoming usolcos, but
actually causing inconvenience to
merchant vessels. Vessels of the
Nippon Yuson Kaisha aud othor
shipping firms have, thoiofero,
removed their nioorago to the
vicinity of Kanagawa, and in cou
BO(iienco the harbor itself is now
beiug deserted. Tho inconve
nioueo thereby caused to Yokoha
ma merchants is beyond descrip
tion. If things roinain as at present,
lauding and loading ollices will
havo to bo established without tho
harbor. Tho fault lies in tho sys
tem. Tho breakwator of courso
protects vessols by checking tho
rough waves outside, but tho calm
thus obtained will naturally tend
to prevent tho accumulating sand
from being washed out of tho har
bor and in course of timo mako
the harDor moro shallow. Thia
being nn ovidont fact, tho authori
ties (night to havo provided means
of dredging nt tho outset. But
sinco tho commencement of tho
harbor works, dredging has not
been dono on a siuglo occasion.
Tho forcshoro of tho N. Y. K.
offices, which formerly admitted
largo vessels, has already become
so shallow that at low tide it is
not easy for ovon a small launch
to go there. Moreover, warships
and sailing vessols, which ought to
bo required to anchor outside tho
harbor, for tho sako of tho safety
and convenience of tho harbor,
boing allowed to eutor withiu tho
broakwaler, morchant vessels cau
not get a view of tho haibor be
foio entering it, whon sueh a large
warship as thu Centurion is an
chored near tho mouth. Sailing
vessols boing unable to move about
at a moment's notice as adroitly
as steamships, masters of steam
ships naturally refrain from ap
proaching such vessels too closely.
Houco they also should bo requir
ed to remain outsido tho harbor;
but as matters stand at pre
sent thoy are allowed to re
main as long bb they liko inside
tho breakwater. Such a matter
is within tho Bphero of the harbor-master
and harbor regulations,
but in the absence of such func
tionary and rules tho wholo har
bor affairs are in tho hands of tho
water .polico, whoso solo duty
seoms, howovor, to bo confined to
looking nftor drowned porsons.
Some expenditure is, of courso,
unavoidable for properly .main
taining tho harbor. Tho people
of Yokohama are wonderfully in
different toward tho har,bor ou
which thoy rdly as tho source oE
their subsistence. Thoy firo no
gun to report timo, nnd givo no
sigual of woathor warning. With
people eo indifferont to their own
interests as to be content without
tho aimplcst olemonts of a har
bor, tho sluggishnosB of tho port
compared with Kobo is not to be
