AS TO LABOfi.
It has not been to. palliate the
contract lnbor system of Hawaii
that this paper has calleil atten
tion to tho Arngo decision of tho
Supremo Court of tho United
States. According to that judicial
interpretation of American law,
sailors may bo imprisoned for re
fusing duty, whore otb.br American
wage earners would simply bo
discharged.' This is really tho
only objectionable feature of tho
Hawaiian labor system in itself,
but which Iras been regarded as a
necessary evil. The leading em
ployers of labor in this country
are, howover, using their best
thought to devise a systom that
will uot have penal conditions.
Our object in commenting upon
tho existence of a species of in
voluutary sorvitudo under tho
American flag, as advertised in
tho Arago decision, has boon to
show that tho prejudice against
Hawaiii iu tho United States, on
account of this country's contract
labor, is not altogether consistent.
Thero ib a similar blemish on
American liberty at homo, which
should be cleaned off, before Ha
waii is flouted any more with what
her people are striving to got rid
of. It is commonly reported, too,
thnt tho "involuntary servitudo"
prohibited in tho United States
constitution, but now judicially
sustained as an exception in the
case of sailors,renlly exists through
mothods of evusion in other de
partments of American labor.
Contract labor much of a kind
with tho Hawaiiau niticlo is said
to be in voguo iu the iron hid us
tiies of the South. Thero are also
other anomalies surviviug in tho
Amorican labor system, making
tho problem of civilization, in
somo sections of tho country, akin
iu dilticulty to that with which
Hawaiian statesmen aro now try
ing to cope. Hero is an instance
quoted from the Planters' Month
ly: Tho oaso with which gangs of
Chincso may bo hired for harvest
iu the Western States has on
couraged tho maintenance of groat
wheat farms that are untenanted
during nine months of the yoar,
and tho samo iniluonco is seen iu
tho tendoncy to combine thou
sands of acres of fruit lanohoo
undor ono manager. Without
these Oliineso, who camp in tents
and cook their own food, it would
be impossible to maintain theso
.Stout ranohes, and they would bo
split up and rented or sold tov
email fanners, thus crttahliMiing
thrifty settlements with chuiohes
and schools whoro now ono may
ride for hours without seeing a
cabin or auy sign of life.
Hawaiiau plautors, it may bo
added to previous remarks, do not
employ contract labor exclusively.
They have a great deal of ordi
nary day labor, and thero is u con
slant migration of unbound labor
ers from one plantation to auothor,
making tho best terms thoy can
exact in tho busier seasons. Con
tract labor is chiefly maintained
as a protection against concerted
labor doeertious, which might
cause enormous loss ou plantations
when the sugar cane is ripe. As
has been fairly shown, however,
there are evils to remedy in the
labor situation of tho United
States as well as that ot Ha
waif. Tho Hawaiian public is
just as oagor for reform iu
this matter as tho American, and
many of tho Hawaiian planters
stand ready to accept whatever
labor conditions union of this
country with the United States
would impose. Our labor condi
tions ought not to weigh for n
moment against nunoxatiou, with
either tho statesmen of tho United
States or their constituents. Ha
waii may bo fully Americanized,
in this as in other respects, just
ns soon as some sections of tho
great Republic itself.
FOR GRAND CONCERTS.
For n week past a notice has
appeared in this paper, higued by
J. W. Yarndley, chorus master,
calling a meeting of all members
of church choirs and choral
organizations, at the High School
tomorrow evening, for tho pur
pose of formiug a choral society.
This is uot intended to bo a more
resuscitation of the choral associ
ation that used to hold practise
frequently and give public con
certs rnrely. It is iu pursuance
of a scheme of tho Minister of
Foreign Affairs tq, organize regtv
lor concerts, by the combined
vocal talent of Honolulu, for
which a small admission fee will
be charged to cover expenses.
The scheme is an admirable one,
calculated to educato und stimulate
tho populur taste for vocal music.
These proposed concerts will bo a
fitting counterpart to the public
band performances that contri
bute so.giently to the cosmopoli
tan pleusuro of the inhabitants of
Honolulu. Minister Cooper is
entitled to rank ns tho chief patron
of music for the people, both for
starting tho present bchome and
for onhancing the services of tho
military band. It is to bo hoped
that all tho singers of the city will
respond to tho call, and effect a
choral organization that will add
to tho fine roputution of Hono
lulu as a musical metropolis.
P. 0. Jones' comprehensive
paper on Profit Sharing, of which
a summary was given in tho Bun
LETIK recoutly, will bo printed
outiro in next Planters' Monthly.
This will brum tho subject into
consideration by all tho practical
planters of tho islands. The edi
tor of tho Monthly, iu'this month's
issuo, says of the plau: "Thero
oan bo'no question that it will bo
introduced on all tho plantations
within a very few years, and thus
teriuiuato tho further introduction
of Japauo.se and Chinese labor
ers." Promoters of tourist travol to
Hawaii have been tendered a
brilliant proposition by W. T.
Portor, tho scenic nrtist of tho
Opora House, through tho Bul
letin of Saturday. It should bo
takou up for consideration im
mediately, as tho time for action
is short. Tho sohomo as describ
ed of an outdoor oyolorama of tho
Hawaiian tour is magnificent,
and the cost to our people is not
great 1000, Mr. Portor, in a
private note, asks: "Do you
think that the amateurs of Hono
lulu would givo a performance at
tho theater iu aid of the matter?"
Let spmobody of influence in that
lino answer. As to the main pro
position, perhaps tho Volcano
Houso Company's directorate
should take tho initiative of action.

vnrinhlv been nnnned liv the fact
that tlio umpire has failed to oh-
sorvu the rules, luuny important
rules which have boon created to
maintain tho dignity of the game
have bocomo "dead letters" and

Theso aro days of considerable
anxiety and perplexity to nil who
have possessions or other iutercsts
in tho Republic .of Hawaii, and it
is time that our citizens came to a
mutual understanding on several
important issues. The prospects
for Annexation appear at present
vague aud iudistinct, and o Hi
des tiny cannot bo foretold with
certainty. There are those, also,
who still fondly cling to the hope
of a return to tho old order of
things, and who cannot bo per
suaded otherwise, yet this out
look appears far more hazy than
that of Annexation evou to tho
most hopeful disciples of tho
Monarchy. But, fortunately, in
tho midst of nil this uncertainty
thero is solacu in the fuct that
