EVENING BULLETIN, JUNE 12, 1897.
51 Euei)ir$ Bulletin
DANIEL. LOGAN, Editor.
SATURDAY, JUNE 12, 1897.
Wkli nil tlio talk heard lately
about a needed chaugo iu plauta
tion liihor supply, it in strange to
find uo mention of uativo Iluwai
ians. Yet tlioro are mauy plantors
who would still, when questioned
categorically, designate tlio natives
a8 their preforouco for laborors.
Others would Bignify the same
choice with the ovor convenient
"if" if thoy could only get the
natives to work in the cane fields.
This is not supposition but state
ment based on fresh records.
People who are in positions to
know the worth of the natives
iu mechanical industries,
as laborers on public
works, in manning the coasting
fleets and handling their boats at
dangerous places, as 'longshore
men, etc., will unhesitatingly tes
tify that for all such employments
they aro the equals, and in most
cases the superiors away beyond
comparison, of any alien labor.
Why, thou, is tho avnilablo supply
of uutivo labor not exhausted bo
fore the planters soud over soub
for endogenous bono and sinew?
There is a strong impression
abroad that, long back in the his
tory of tho sugar planting indus
try, work on tho plantations was
lnnde odious to tho Hawaiians.
Ignorant and inexperienced rann
agors and overseers, carrying out
n penny wise aud pound foolish
policy, failed to give them proper
trentmout, in oithor housing, feed
ing, overseeing or wages propor
tioned to capacity. This charge
is not imaginative in source, but
derived from tho information of
competent witnesses. Planters aro
given to expressing contempt for
newspaper discussion of their
business, but to contemm the judg
ment of others, especially when
based on notorious facts, is but a
dibtinguishing trait of those who
are chiefly wise in their own con
ceits. No doubt tho planting
guild would feel keenly sensitive
at present to any adequate discus
sion of recent incidents, on differ
ent hands, that exhibit modes of
ruling laborors on the plantations
which make tho character of
Legroo in "Undo Tom's Cabin"
saintly by comparison. Perhaps
the newspapers, in preseuce of
such doings as those referred to,
ought to bo frro to confess that
their judgment may not bo com
petent for tho sottling of questions
arising in tho realm of white
skinned barbarism. All the same
the newspapers will find public
opinion at their baok iu denounc
ing such barbarism, also in draw
ing conclusions from its ex
istence which tend to discre
dit tho excuses, heard these
many years with dreary reitera
tion, for tho planters' insistence
upon a necessity of flooding the
country with barbaric hordes of
cheap labor. It is all very woll,
when tho labor system of tho
couutiy is being shown to the
world for tho couutry's disad
vantage, that some of tho plantors
should mako a spasmodic effort to
introduce labor of weBternly
civilized material, with a pui port
ed view to obtaining at tho same
time dcsirablo material for settle
ment and- citizenship. There
would bo more sincerity apparent
in tho move, however, and some
tangible pledge of determined
constancy, if the planters should
begin tho new departure with a
serious effort to reman their fields
and mills bo far as the supply
would hold out from the numer
ous ranks of unemployed white
men and native Hawaiinns. Offer
ing such labor tho miserable pit
tances that figuro in tho contracts
of Asiatic coolies, without tho in
ducements othor than money
wages which would attract mon of
civilized birth and aspirations, is
only shamming. Nobody kuows
hotter than tho plantors them
selves that whatovor terms como
short of getting white mon and
natives now living hero to enlist
on tho sugar plantations will nov
er satisfy American" or Europoan
laborers who may bo coaxed into
tho country. Unsatisfied thoy will
not bo hold by iroubound con
tracts, oven backed by an army of
police Some of tho planting cor
porations aro evidently striving
to inaugurato a reformed policy
with rogard to labor. All honor
to them for the effort. If tho ex
periments theso are making to
formulato a now systom, whoroby
the laboror will get something liko
a decent share of the fruits of his
toil, should succeed as thore is fair
promise of doing,their example will
go a long way toward bringing
about a rovolutiou for true civili
zation in those islands which will
make tho most radical reforms
produced by political earthquakes
not worth mentioning.

USE OS" THE
HOUSEHOLD AND DAIRY.
The long- continued drouht
of this year has necessarily
affected dairies, especially on
this island, and its continuance
bids fair to seriously affect the
milk supply. Consequently it
behooves dairymen to be more
economical than ever in order
to make both ends meet before
the next rainy season. In no
way can economy be practised
to better advantage than in
using the Alpha-De Laval
Cream- Separators. Here
are afew of the advantages to
be gained from their use:
1. Save 10 percent, to 0
percent, in skimming. 2. Save
$ percent, to 10 percent, in
churning. J. Increase butter
value 5 percent, to $0 percent.
4. Save time and labor. 5. Save
ice and water. 6. Insure purity
of product. 7. Remove tuber
culosis and disease germs.
8. Give a much superior cream.
9. Give cream of any desired
density. 10. Give warm, fresh,
sweet skim-milk. 11. Obviate
"scours" in calves. 12. Give
the best aeration. 13. Do away
with taints and odors. 14. En
hance keeping qualities. $.
Save women's and housework.
16. Save one-half time in
churning. 17. Save storing and
handling of ice. 18. Save milk
and ice-houses. 19. Save mul

washing and care of utensils.
