MONDAY, AUG. 2, 1897.
Chief Justices Judd, in an inter
view reported with him in San
Francisco, is represented as say
ing that, throughout tho immigra
tion troubles, ho h'ad advised the
Hawaiian Government "to follow
tho Anglo-Saxon law as enforced
iu tho United States, which would
pqrinit us to amond an old troaty,
framed undor othor conditions, and
"ring its ipmih iu mm uin prracni
Mt6, The Uiitcriuiu'nt of Jnpait
did not Hoeiii to grasp tho Import
ant fact thot, treaty or no treaty,
I wo had the right to regulato nil
alien immigration iu any way wo
saw fit." This is only what the
Dut.t.KTlN has boon saying all
along, roitcrating it against a falso
Impression published abroad to
tho effect that Hawaii invited
Japanese immigration hero, but
stopped it whou it becamo too
much of a good thing. Tho Ha
waiian Qovernmout has never
stopped Jopanose immigration
coming under tho conuitioiiH on
which it was invited, the chiof ono
of which was that it should cor
respond to tli demand for labor
as approved by tho Govomment.
What camo othorwise was merely
subjected to the regulations affect
ing immigrants of all nationali
ties equally, aud ouly so much of
this class was rejocted os failed to
comoup to such regulations. Tho
Montreal Witness illustrates its
riow of tho situation with tho
fublo of tho mill that was ordered
to grind salt and could not be
stopped when wanted. This is
not correct. The Japanese labor
immigration mill started by tho
Hawaiian Govomnrtmt was undor
full control. It was a private
omigratiou mill in Japan, pro
moted by joint stock companies to
make profit on tho oxport of flesh
uud blood, which refused to stop
until the Hawaiian Government
stuffed the spout at this end with
wholesomo and impartial laws
mado to regulato all gouoral im
migration. Hawaii hns a treaty
with Great Britain, conferring on
.British subjects tho right to freely
enter Hawaiian torritory, etc,
with the most favored nation
clauso in it too. Yet if a Moutreal '
syndicate should bo formed to
ship emigrants to these islands
for labor on speculation tlio
same as the Japan companies
operated the people when they
came, unless invited under our
labor immigration regulations
would havo to comply with the
laws hero provided to prevent tho
introduction of undesirable in
habitants, just tho same as the
Japanese who were shipped here
without requisition having been
made for thorn through our Board
of Immigration. Possibly the
immigration restrictions were in
advertently applied so as to work
injustice to some of tho Japaneso
refused admission, but Japan has
thuB far loftily declined to
discuss any question of. in
dividual wrongs in the matter.
She arrogantly takes the position
that the Hawaiian immigration
laws, having iu thoir administra
tion shut out some Japanese sub
jects, aro in derogation of tho
treaty of friendship between the
two countries. If only one or
Bay a dozen out of a shipload
numbering 500 to 1000 had been
rejected, probably Japan would
not disdain to havo the particulars
investigated. The principle is tho
same, however, in tho caso of one
as of a million. Along with tho
rejections were many admissions,
a faat that proves Hawaii's good
Prosidont McKinlny was with
holding his message on tho cur
rency until tho turiff bill had
been finally disposed of, out of
deference to the leaders of the
Republican party who foarod a
complication of issues. Probably
for tho same reason thero would
be no calling up of tho Hawaiian
aunoxation treaty until something
should be done with the currency
recommendations. If these should
simply, for tho first stage, b6 re
ferred to a committee as is likely,
there would bo a lull m the Seu
ato which might be the chosen
opportunity of tho annexationists.
