Euitou Evenino Bulletin:
So tnauy ituprnotical, non-observing
men attempt to write for tbo
information of tho masses on tho
labor question that following
thom bas becomo nauseous. There
is a tbeory and a condition in
volved, and ns a rulo they get
tangled, and nfter one bas care
fully read tbeir writings bo is apt
to come to tho conclusion that bo
is no wiser for their labors.
If one would confine his at
tempts to writing on tbo subject
of the labor necessary for sugar
culture and state facts as they
have and do exsist, the reader
mjght come to aomo conclusion.
It is nn industry so unliko any
other agricultural labor that the
requirements are emphatically
differont. In the first place, we
find it essential that the labor be
continually renewed, for the
reason that human nature cannot
Btand it. It is proved by the de
mands of employers that the
labor best suited for sugar culture
is tho Asiatic, mainly for the
leason that it can be renewed. It
is not so much a question whether
Europeans can do the work, for
it is admitted that they can do
anything from hoisting a flag
on the north pole to shovel
ing guano under the equator,
but whether the requisite
uumoers can ue onrainea to con
tinually renew their ranks, and
that this renewing process can be
conducted coonomionlly enough
warrant the employment of that
class of labor. By those who
have made the experiment of em.
ploying Germans it is found that
they cannot do all kiuds of plan
tation work. At Lihue where a
colony was settled under the most
favored conditions this was prov
ed. These people were selected in
Germany (did not select them
selves as tbo wharf rats brought
bore from Sweden by Capt. L'
Orange), wore provided with good
homes, a nice church, n home
pastor, a good school in fact
their surroundings were made so
agreeable that they would not feel
that they had been transplanted.
There is no branch of plantation
labor this people cannot do, from
running the steam plows to driv
ing mules or gangs of men, but
there were two essential branches
they could not continuously work
at One was irrigating cnno.which
destroyed the feet and made help
Ibsb the bend of tho family, and
the other was nlrippiug cane,
which destroyed the hands with a
similar result. For these two
branches thorefore Asiatics had to
be employed. Not np of tlinp
Gorman families, that id good
for anything, but what
looks forward to bettering its
condition by gottiug out of pluu-
tatiou life, although all have
saved money. Thorefore, ray pro
mi that renewal of labor is es
sential is cleat ly proved uvim with
this beBt labor. Wo cannot help
but como to tho saino conclusion
in rogard to Asiatics wbon wo see
Htioh crowds of thorn returning
monthly to thoir native land, enoh
with his littlu store of hard earned
savingn. Knowing that this is a
laud whnru their labor is well
paid uml Hint limy unn renew
thoir contracts and dnttblo their
capital by laying another throo
yearn, it 1h rnro that tlmy do this,
Notwithstanding that some plan
tew will buy that thev havo wuu

No ene went thero to search for

than thoso greasors and Indians
does not exist, but they aro in
duced to work from season to

will bo short and thny will have
saved enough to have a graud
Fitzgerald shows the large per
centage of Asiatic labor employed
in beet sugar culture in Califor
nia, and those of us who have
soon the work know why Anglo
Saxona do not do it. Sentiment
and sugar labor must be divorced.
xue ronewauio labor nocessary
for the cultivation of sugar must
be obtained. The writers in tho
"United States who prate of slave
labor in the Hawaiian Islands
should be ignored. The fact of
so many thousands of laborers
coming here of their own accord
and returning with a fino bauk
account, the fact that the slightest
abuse of laborers by overaoers
arouses the indignation of the
community and compels reforms,
together with tho fact that similar
labor is used in tho United States,
should obeck the pons of ignorant
writers who declaim against tbe
Hawaiian Islands and their slavo
Another source of twaddle that
makes weary is that of a fow who
put themselves forward by show
ing tnat tuoy are in tnv.ir of do
ing away with tho contract system
and who would really like to con
vince thomselvos that as much
and more can bo done without
contracts. When one of those
pseudo philanthropists tells me
that on his plantation thoy
find thoy can do hotter
by farming out the work to con
tractors I feel like telling him ho
ought to be punished for his ig
norance. If he had ever lived in
Africa he would know the mean
ing of the expression, "a slave of
a slave." When he lot out the
cultivation of his lands to an
Asiatio boss ho then merely do '
puted the working of iupn to a
harder boss than ho would like
tho reputation of being. If a
Chinaman brings a Chinaman to
this couutry to work for him that
man has to work for all that is in
him and is bouud by chainB com
pared to which African slavery in
the United States was the freedom
of sunlight. In the former, if tbe
slave does not work his innocent
relatives at home are put to tho
torture and this is known to the
white pseudo philanthropists. In
quire into tho building of the
United States railroads by China
men furnished by tbe Six Compa
nies if this statement is not corro
borated. On tho other baud, if
the boss cheats the laborer it
would be hotter for his family
that he had never been born. In
China when the rolativo of an
injured man destroys the innocent
family of the injurer, the commu
nity says that the retaliation was
right and in cousonnuco with the
customs of that people.
iNow on looking ovor the whole
fiold wn havo discovered that sev
eral cIbhhub of labor must bo om
Sloyod in sugar culture. Firstly
o. 1 machinery must bo usod.tho
ramifications of tho manufacture
of which has given employment
to hundreds of Anglo-SaxoiiH.
Seoondly a largo number of
skilled hands must be employed,
and theso aro generally Anglo
Suxous. Thirdly the renew

gonorally admitted, for reasons
quoted, that for this purpose

Four weoka from next Saturday
will bo Regatta day,- a public
holiday by an act passed by the
last Jgislntiiro. Tho comraitteo
appoiutud by the three boat clubs
to take charge of the arrange
ments, O.B.Gray of tho Hoalauis,
C. S. Crane of the MyrtleB and
Cupid Kalaniauaole of tho Lei
lanis nro hard at work perfecting
their .program and attending to
other jieceBsary mnttors connected
with it. Mr. Gruy is chairman of
tbe committee and Mr. Crano
In response to questions Mr.
Gray said this morning:
"Yon can assure tho public that
a fine day's B"port is in prospect
for llngatta day. You know it has
been decided- to bold the cham
pionship lacos over the Pearl City
coursB on September 11, tho 'Sat
urday before Kegatta day. There
were many good reasons 'for this
action whioh need not be discuss
ed now. All three of the clubs
will enter crows for both senior
and junior events. This is settled
aud thore will bo no backing out.
Tho crews and substitutes are all
practising daily. 1 cannot give
vou the namos of tbo crows now
becauso they have uot been finally
Helocted by the captains. Most of
the hard work of preparation will
be douo in tho . harbor hero,
but it is likely tho six
crews will go down to Pearl
City a few days boforo the race,
ho as to accustom tueraHelvos to
tbe water. Thore will bo no
chance of a squithhlo about boats
this year, for all throo clubs havo
signed an agreement to use their
Australian lupcdruuk working
Bhells in tbo races. Each club
has one of theso boats aud they
are idontical, so no one club cau
say another won beuauso of a bet
tor boat. It will bo Bimply a
question of merit.'.'
"What events have been ar
ranged for Regatta day?" asked
"Well, tho priucipal one will
bo a six oarod sliding seat barge
raco for which all threo clubs
have agreed to enter. A good
cash prize will be offered for this.
Indeed wo want to offer good
cash prizes for all tho events.
While we have not fully decided
on our program, and cannot until
we ascertain the amouut of money
at our disposal, you may say there
will be first aud second class
yaoht races early in the morning,
ad well aH oveuts for raon of-war's
boats, surf boats and canoes. The
boat boys will have a race for
theit 6S,jeoial bonitfit, as will the
crews of the island steamers.
There will probably be a special
raco for crews from sailing vessels
in port. The desire of the com
mittee is to inject us much rival
ry as possiblo into nil the events;
for iustauco wo want the polico,
natives, raou-of-war aud boiitboys
to outer agaiust eacli other aud
make the races exciting.
"We havo abundant assurauco
that tho regatta will bo fully equal
to that of last year, but wo would
like to make it much better. Wo
shall call on tho public for sub
scriptions in a few days aud mueh
will dopond nu how it responds;
