OBJECIS TO ANNEXATION.
But tbe nnllcllucTrml Council
Favor of the Propnard
Tho various labor organizations
with which San Francisco is
blessed have taken up tbo matter
of the annexation of Hawaii and
there appears to be considerable
difference of opinion among them
as to the benefits American labor
ing men will derive from it.
The San Francisco Labor
Council is composed of delegates
from all the trades unions and is
bitterly opposed to annexation, as
it was to Fitzgerald's scheme to
bring white labor to the islands,
on tho ground that our laws vir
tually countenance involuntary
slavery. At a recent meeting the
Council passed a series of resolu
tions which present tho arguments
advanced for tbe position it has
taken and are printed below:
Whereas, a treaty of annexation
of the Hawaiian Islands bus been
submitted to the Senate of the
United States for its ratiGcntion;
and whorcas, contracts to labor uro
specifically enforceable in the no
called Republio of Hawaii; and
whereas, such treaty provides
that "all laws, civil, judicial and
military are to continue until
Congress shall provide for the
government of such islands;" and
whereaB, thhrtreaty provides tbat
tho present laws governing labor
and contracts to labor are to con
tinue in force; therefore be it
Resolved, By the San Francisco
Labor Council, in regular ne&Biou
Resembled on June 18, 1897, tbat
such annexation is contrary to the
best interests of this country for
the following reasons:
First Because slavery and in
voluntary servitude now existing
in these islands will have ei ten
dency to be extended to the same
latitude, climate and employment
within our country.
Second Becuuso such involun
tary servitude may now, under the
decision of tho Suprome Court of
the United States in the case of
Robert Robertson et al. vs. Barry
Baldwin (Arago case),- be so ex
tended, the court having therein
decided that speoifio enforcement
of contract to labor is not inher
ently either against the Constitu
tion or public policy.
Third Because government in
these islands, with ninety per cent
of the population disfranchised,
cannot rest upon the consent of
tho governed, unless thought of
franchise be extended to tlW Mon
golians such extension would,
however, wo think, give them the
franchise also in other parts of tho
Fourth B'ecauso the disfrau
chisomout of Cliiuose, Japanese,
illiterates, and proportyless" men
of nllracos has created, and will
undoubtedly continue, in these
islands a form of government
oligarchy inherently opposed to
tho institutions of this country.
Fifth Uecauso freedom und in
voluntary servitude oligarchy
and demoorucy canuot co exist
in the sauio country undor the
same flag "One," Baid Lincoln,
"will destroy tho other." Wo bo
lioved him thou, aud believe him

broadest intellects within our

Resolved, That for tho.uboyo
reasons wo ask tho California
Senators and Congressmen to op
pose this treaty, wliiob is in itself
the reversal of the policy of over
100 years and contrary to the ad
vice and admonition of Washing
ton. On tho other hand the Building
Trades Council, 'composed of dele
gates from the various unions be
longing exclusively to tho buna
ing trade, at a meeting ueiu on
June 24, passed resolutions favor
ing the proposed treaty of annexa
tion of the Hawaiian islands, set
ting forth its reasons as follows
and condemning in strong tormB
the previous action of tbo Labor
Council, of which its own dele
gates composed a largo majority:
Whereas, a treaty of annexation
of tho Hawaiian Inlands has been
submitted to the Senate for ratifi
cation: aud whereas, this said
action has provoked an expression
of opinion by tho press, mercan
tile and labor organizations; and
whereas, among tno last mention
ed the San Francisco Labor
Council bus taken action and ro
corded itself as opposed to tho
annexation of tho Hawaiian re
public in no uncertain terms,
using alleged provisions contain
ed in tho instrument, misquoting
its sections and construing its
meaning different from its read
ing and the inteutiou of its
authors; und whereas, annexation
will defeat the intrigues and plots
of an alien Government whoso
subjects in this couutry today aro
the greatest danger impending
American labor, which by the do
feat of annexation will gain an
ascendency over a territory which,
from its military, naval and com
mercial importance, is invaluable
to tho Government acquiring it;
therefore be it
Resolved, By the Building
Trades Council, composed of the
representative of the unions con
nected with the building frudos of
the City of San Francisco, in reg
ular meeting assembled on June
2-1, 1897, that wo condemn the
action taken by the San Francisco
Labor Council as ill-advised, il
logical, irrelevant and unjust, and
that the reasons advauced by tho
council aro subterfuges resorted
to for the purpose of subserving
privato interests, as the sido of tho
questiou which presents advan
tages to labor is entirely ignored.
Resolved, That wo look upon
the acquisition of this territory as
a step in the right direction; that
it is of great National importance
bb well as to, the particular advan
tage of American labor, as rosult
aut traffic and commerce must un
Resolved, That in our opinion,
with American laws and institu
tions substituted for the present
governmental system, the oppor
tunities afforded will bo enjoyed
by American labor and will cause
its transformation into tho most
commercially importnant country
for its Bize ou tho globo; and bo it
Resolved, That for theso reasons
wo ask tho California Senators
and Congressmen to favor tho an
nexation of the Hawuiian Islands.

The Atlanta Journal, Hoke
Smith's paper, is naturally against
annexation, but it should try and
find a hotter exoueo for its polioy
than that tho United States, by
taking tho islands iu "would bo
