.Minister Cooper ivUri'Mid a
ruply to Count Ukuitiii on .Mny 21.
In it ho anya Hint notwithstand
ing tho admission that tlin restitu
tion of immigration was n proper
exerciso of police power, it was
r eg rotted that oxcoptiou had to bo
taken to tho language of tho
CouiiI'h communication, in using
tho words "arbitral ily" and
"capriciouely." Th examination
of tho immigrants was boforo a
competent tribunal, and tho de
cision of the Supreme Court bub
taining the Custom House was
based on sound judicial principles,
and tho result was no breach of
Act 17 of 1895 was but n reason
able protection of this couutry
from undesirable residents. Tho
validity of that nud tho Act of
1891, part of which had been ob
jected to, could not bo successfully
assailed on the ground that they
are in violation of the treaty, as
they make no discrimination be
tween subjects of Japan and those
of any other countries. Such
laws are a necessary safeguard
for the peace and welfare of the
nation. The right to pass such
laws is inalienable and incident to
the rights of sovereignty. This
country in common with other na
tions maintnins tho right to protect
itself from the injurious conse
quences that might arise, both
from the unrestricted immigra
tion of individuals injurious to
the community in its mor
al, sanitary and economical
interests, and from an immigra
tion stimulated beyond its natural
course through the enterprise of
individuals and companies for
profit, which stimulated iwmigia
tiou tends to the embarrassment
of labor conditions and the order
ly fithtua of the comuiuuit, and
in accordance with this authority
Hawaii is clothed with the power
to apply such lows wherever
Minister Cooper is not aware
that the favored nation clauso of
the treaty -has ever been construed
to such a great length as Japan
contends for. While agreeing
with tho claim that Japanese sub
jects have the right to trade, re
side and exercise all sorts of in
dustry nnd professions in Hawaii,
this Government should maintain
that all the treaties between Ha
waii and other countries are sub
ject to its constitution and also to
the laws that may have been pass
ed by its Legislature. It is
strenuously denied that Japanese
subjects were entitled to any
further determination of their
residential or other rights than
was accorded them.
In regard to the charge that the
Japanese were not permitted to
take counsel of tho representative
of their Government, lie drew tho
attention of his excellency to the
facts that the Shinshiu Maru ar
rived on the 27th of February, that
the period of quarantine expired
on March 10, that habeaB corpus
proceedings wore begun on the
same day,and that not until March
17 was any request received from
the Ministor for a porsonal exami
nation of the immigrants.
Mr. Cooper states to the report
ers that ho eonveyed Mr. Shima
mora, with bis secretary and Mr.
Humphreys bis attorney, in Im
own boat to the quarantine sta
tion and there offered him a seat
at the examination, but he declin
ed tho offer and asked to be allow
ed to make a prirato examination.
As accommodations had only been
provided for tho Govern mout ex
amination, a denial of this request
hnd to bo made at the time. How
ever, Mr. Sbituamura wrOto tho
same day demanding a private
examination. Mr. Cooper wtote
to him on the 18th, (Olowiug him
a private examination, which he
held. Whon Kinney & Ballou,
attorneys, presented themselves as
counsel for the immigrants, the
immigrants were asked if they
had desired to see counsel and
they answered that they had not.
Referring to Count Okuma'B
innuendo ubout tho coufiuomont
of tho emigrants ashore, Mr.
Cooper states that tkey had been
removed from tho shin as an act
of huraauity, which he cluimed
gave them uo territorial right.
It was true that Hawaii was in
strumental in starting tho immi
gration of Jupuuobo iuto this
country, but only under a specific
understanding more particularly
sot forth in the convention of
188G, And in no iustauto had
Hawaii ever endeavored (o seoure
the colonization of this country by
immigrants from Japan. Hawaii
had ulways claimed tho right to
suspend immigration whon con
ducted by private parties. There
had boon uo reversal of any pro
pellent heretofore t'itahllhrd.

nontoil attempt) to prevent illegal
iimuigralioi), which it hh in tin
fled had boiMi in progress for a
coiiHidoralilo period, but which
until tho case of the Shinshiu
Mam had been unsuccessful. For
tified by information from rival
immigration companies, tho Gov
ernment inado investigations re
sulting in tho conclusion that tho
immigration as conducted waa
Minister Cooper in conclusion
held that the immigration laws
were not in contravention of the
treaty, and that their enforcement
was justifiable; and stated that tlis
Government was forced to the
conclusion that no pricoiplo of
indemnification should be recog
nized, and that upon a similar
infraction of the immigration laws
like action to that complained of
would necessarily follow.
A 1'EltSONAL INTE11V1KW.
After tho lotter just reviewed
Minister Shimamura asked for a
personal interview, in wbioh he
(ought hu exphuiahnu of some
or tue terms of that letter,
Minister Coopet was willing to
give auy necessary explanations,
but when the interview drifted
into ,n discussion of facts he sti
pulated it must bo in writing.
MINISTER SHIHAXIUltA WHITES.
Mr. Shimamura wrote asking
why tho Shinehiu Mam was held
in quarantine from February 27
to Maroh 10, when the ship had
been out from Japan the required
time to escape quarantine.
The Japanese Minister also
comp(aine(l that Kinney it Ballou
were tefused permission to enter
the quarantine station with their
olerkn, tnbles, etn., when thy
claimed that they were connael
for tho immigrants. Mr. Cooper
had refused them this permission
as Attorney General while noting
in that office.
Mr. Shimamura held that this
Government was responsible for
its acts regardless of any decisions
of its courts. He claimed that,
having come within the territory
of Hawaii, tho iiumigrnnts wero
clearly within tue jurisdiction of
its courts. He did not mean at
all to enter into a consideration of
the actions of the customs author
ities, nor whether their decision
was final or not, bat called atten
tion to the ease of the Toyo Mara
in November, 1806, when Chief
Justice Judu took jurisdiction and
allowed a man to land against the

ad the same memorandum from
an emigration company in his
possession as tho rejected people
in controversy. Here tho letter is
rather ambiguous, but seomB to
question whether the laws was
fairly enforced, apart from the
treaties. Mr. obimamurn alleges
discrimination in favor of some
who claimed to be here before and
of women with relatives in this
Further Mr. Shimamura com
plains that the rejected emigrants
wero not informed of the decision
of tho customs, and he was in
formed that they wero put back
on board the steamer by "cheat
and menace." But bo was not
prepared to discuss that matter,
becauso ho was not disposed to
believe snob a report. Notwith
standing tho friendly relations,
the Hawaiian Government had not
notified him in advance of a
change of polioy with, regard to
Japauoso immigration. If they
had been forewarned tho people
would not havo como. The affair
was most soriously taken becauso
so many peoplo wero mistreated,
and the Japanese Government
would not stop without rocoiving
the most satisfactory answer.
HAWAIIAN REPLY AT LENGTH.
Minister Cooper answorod tho
foregoing complaints on June 25.
As to the quarantine of the ship,
it was on aocount of the discovery
of Gorman measles on board.
Regarding Kinney and Ballou,
he reitorated what ho said before,
that tho immigrants had not ask
ed for them or for habeas corpus

goos no further than to say that,
