The Commission appointed by the
JPresideut to recommend a form
of governmont for tho Hawaiian
.islands as a part of tho United
Statos met in Senator Oullom's
committee room at tho Capitol to
day for the first timo einoe leaving
Honolulu. Senators Cullora and
Morgan, Representative Hitt and
Judgo Frear being present.
The meeting was devoted to
discussing the details of the bill
nnd the report which tho Com
mission will prosont to Congress.
'This had not been fully dooidad

upon at tno last mooring, xno
legislation which will bo rccom

bo included in a bill, which to all
intents and purposes will bo an

the bills providing for tho admis
sion of new states into tho Union,
excopt in tho ono importaut do
tail that it provides for tho adraiB
sion of a territory and not a stato.
Tho bill has boon comploted, but
probably will bo amonded some
what in detail.
Tho report has not boon com
pleted, but tho Commission has
decided upon its important fea
tures. Ono of theso is a recom
mendation that tho systom of im
porting laborers under contract
shall bo discontinued. Tho Com
missioners havo concluded that as
tho system is contrary to tho laws
applying to this country, m a
wholo, it would not do wisa to
continue it evon temporarily in
-Hawaii. It is understood that a
majority at least of tho members
of tho Commission do not accopt
tho theory that Americans and
Europeans cannot drf manual
labor in tho islands
Tho Commission will recom
mend a regular Territorial form of
oovarumeut. with a Governor, a
Delegate in Congress and a Leg
islature. The Legislature will bo
elected by tho qualified votors of
iho islands, but thoro will be pro
porty and educational qualifica
tions imposed upon tuoso who
voto for mombors of tho uppor
house of the Legislature. The
franchise will not bo extended to
tho Japanoso or Chinese in the
island, hut tho Portuguese who
become citizens will not be exclud
ed under tho restrictions imposed.
Ttio Commission will present full
dotails of tho valuo of tho proper

Justice Frear, ono of the Ha
waiian Commissioners and also a
in o in bo r of tho Supromo Court of
Hawaii, said this aftornoon in an
swer to a queatiou as to tho solu
tion of the coolie labor problem in
" Under tho proaout law coolio
labor can bo imported. Our peo
ple, if loft to their own choice,
would profor to continue this sys
tom. but wo will not hesitate to
givo it up if required. Wo realize
Unit tho stability of tho govern
ment will bo so largely increased
undor annexation that wo could
afford to amond our labor laws
find saorifico cheap labor.
" As a mattor of fact, our plant
ers are now starting in to make a
Borious attempt to introduco whito
laborers. Some havo already been
brought iu from California, and it
as bolioved tho oxporimout will
suocood, Tho notion seems to pro
vail in some quartors that white
men cannot work iu tho tropics.
It must bo remembered, however,
that thoro aro difforoucos in tropi
cal countries. Hawaii really is
on tho odgo of tho tropics. Furth
ormoro, tho islands aro tomperod
by a cool ocean curront, which ro-
