Minister Cooper Ultra A it miliary tu
minhtr nfthe Pr-Th Offer
Miuistor Cooper gnvo nn inter-
viow to members of tho uross nt
tho Forci(;u Oflke Wetlncsdny, in
which ho recited tho Bitbatiinco
of tho correspondenco botween tho
Japaucso and Hawaiian Govern
mont rolutirc to tho rejection of
Japanese oniigrants at tho port of
Honolulu. Much of tho matter
lias boon already published in es
sence by this papor, and may bo
gono ovor lightly now.
Mr. Shimamura, Minister Itesi
dont of Japan, on March 20
presonted tho formnl protest of
ilia Government against the re
jection of would bo immigrants
who arrived in tho s tender Shin-shiu-Maru.
Almost tho ontiro
correspondence in tho controver
sy thou started bus been conduct
ted with refereuco to that parti
cular ship, although emigrants
coming later in the Sukura-Muru
were rejected on similar grounds.
Tho Japanese protest was based
upon the stipulations in the
treaties between the two countries.
After the preliminary corres
pondence Minister Cooper's prin
cipal letter in reply to tho protest
was dated on April 2. It stated
that 140 emigrants were refused
laudinc because they came under
contracts with the Kobe Emigra
tion Company, executed previous
to their leaving Jnpnn, guarantee
ing them employment on arriving
in those islands. Their passages
had been paid by the company
and they arrived here entirely
destitute, while their contracts
were not approved by the lioard
of Immigration. Seven immi
grants forwarded by tho Morioko
Immigration Company came uu
dor contracts approved by the
Board of Immigration. Those
were allowed to laud. Thore
were 317 emigrants who had 850
cr.ch to sIit.v a1 required by the
general immigration laws of this
country, but thoy woro refused
landing because they bad been
recruited undor promise of em
ployment on arriving here, and
tho money was only lent to them
for showing to tho customs officers.
Some omigrants in the same ves
sel bringing those rejected came
indopondoutly of emigration com
panies and were lauded on show
ing their owuarship of 850, or
proving their prior residence, or,
in tho case of females, that thoy
had blood relatives in Hawaii.
Minister Cooper calls attention to
a letter from this Government to
tho then Japaucso representative,
Mr. bhiraizu, in laDo, claiming the
right of this Government to sus
pend JapauoHO immigration at
any time. The rejection of tho
emigrants in question was iu ac
cordance with the spirit of tho
laws of this country. The utmost
good faith had been observed in
the ontiro procedure. Enclosures
I'llOH MIKIHTEU BHIMAMUKA.
Minister Shimamura roplied on
ipnl (i to the following effect:
Coincides with expressions of
Minister Cooper regarding friend
ly relations always existing.
Wished to express sentiment of
his country that in dealing with a
small country like Hawaii tho
same high order of courtesy would
be observed as in communications
with more powerful nations.
Whilo the matter would have to be
submitted to his Government, the
Miuistor deemed it proper to statu
his own views. Regarding the
first class of rejected emigrants,
ho considered their contracts
miido in Japan, though they may
not have complied with every ro
quiroment of tho Board of Immi
gration, yet they complied with
tho spirit of tho regulations.
Taking a large viow of tho matter,
would it not have been best not to
have imposed so hard upon tho
simple and iguorant people,
after thoy had boon to tho expanse
of soiling out their houses and
laudsj and breaking up thoir
families iu Japan, to bo rejected
hero simply bucuuso they hud not
been able to comply with all tho
regulations of tho Board of Im
migration? With regard to tho second olass,
Minister Coopor hud been misin-
J formed as to the nature of tho
iiipinoriiiitlutn of agreement niadn
in Japan promoting tho pr-nplu
employment in Hawaii. It was a
result of tho laws of Japan, so mh
to provide against the sending of
people to foreign countries without
assuranco of livelihood. Those
regulations onght to be approved
of by tho Govormnent of thin
country as providing moans of
suppoit for tho immigrants
when they arrivod hero. Such
people camo hole not ah contract
laborers but as froe immigrants.
Having prosouted tho necossary
$50, under tho treaty guarantees
they should havo beon permitted
to laud. The Minister could not
understaud that any distinction
could be made between Japanese
who had resided in this country
and those who had not. He doals
with tho Hawaiian policy of sus
pending immigration at pleastiro
when conducted under tho
auspices of private parties, .claim
ing that immigration cannot bo
limited or modified except by
alterations of the treaty.
LETTEB FIIOM COUNT OKUMA.
Tho next communication ia from
Count Okuma, Miuister of For
eign Affairs of Japan, dated at
Tokio on April 19 and handed in
by Minister Shimamura on May
11. It recites tho facts of tho
return of the steamer Shinshiu
Mam with rejected emigrants on
April 11. The Cabinet' had given
consideration - to all tbequpstions
involved in the matter. Though
influenced by a friendly desire to
accord duo weight to every ex
tenuating circumstance, the Gov
ernment was driven to the conclu
sion that this Government's action
wnsi'iu derogation of conventional
rights of Japanese subjects, direct
ly under the treaty of 1871 and
indirectly under the most favored
nation clause iu that treaty.
Minister Cooper bore called
attention to the fact that he hud
said nothing about treaty rights
Count Okuma specified where
the rights in question had been
1. Japanese subjects had abso
lutely the same rights as Hawaiian
iu doing businoss at the ports of
2. Japaneso havo the right to
travel, trade and exorcise any in
dustry or profession in all parts
of Hawaii thif bftfed on the
most favored nation clause of tho
treaty, which tho Hawaiian Gov
ernment, Mr. Cooper remarks,
claims to have only a limited ap
plication. 3. Japanese subjects are enti
tled to complete nnd constant pro
tection from the Hawaiian Gov
ernment for their persons and
property as well as in regard to
their civil rights.
1 They are ontitled to free
access to the courts of Hawaii in
pursuit or defense of their rights.
.- 'i' i i i:i.,...t. ,,.
any and all circumstances to
choose and employ legal counsel.
In disregard of all those rights
4G0 Japanese subjects, after being
confined for a considerable period
ashore, and without being allowed
access to any court, and without
being permitted in the eurly
stages of tho case to see and take
counsel with tne representa
tives of their Government,
were ignominiouslv expelled
from the country. It is not sug
gested that under any circum
stances similar treatment would
be mated out to Hawaiian citizens.
Such action was based on tho
claim that the persons were aliens
outside the limits of Hawaiian
The Japanese Government is
convinced that the Hawaiian laws
of 1891 and 1895 relating to immi
gration, correctly interpreted by
tho Hawaiian Government, is in
contravention of existing treaties.
It is admitted that the regula
tion of immigration is a proper
exorcise of police powor, whoso
reasonable exorcise would provoko
no remonstrance from Japan. In
nretiont case tho laws are a rever
sal of existing precedents, being
arbitrarily and capriciously en
forced. Tho extrajudicial pro
ceedings of tho Hawniian author
ities were not conclusive ana tuo
refusal to take jurisdiction by tho
court appealed to wub a denial of
Tho conclusion is that tho Jap
aneso Governmont maintains that
tho Hawaiian Government shall
recognize tho principle of indem
nification, and that tho samo cause
of complaint will not occur again.
