In conversation with a Bulle

substanco as follows:
"Hawaii etnnds in a bettor posi

Territory on the mainland. The
twenty.fivo hundred miles of,
water intervening botween horo

eliminating tho tramp olemont.
"Tho danger at present is from
the quieting down of tho labor
scare by tho Government's retract
ing of its rofusal to grant permis
sion for furthor supplies of Japa
noso contract labor. This respite
is liable to causo a lull of intoroat
in tho movomont to procuro whito
labor from tho Coast.
"In my opinion, this casing
down of tho situation ought to bo
takon as the opportunity for tho
work in tho interest of American
labor. Otherwieo, when tho
change of systom does come, the
planters will be just as badly pre
pared for it as thoy wero when

President Dole kindly permits the publication of the text of
his letter to the plantations on the matter of labor. It appears
below. The desertions on which information is sought are those
occurring the first three months of this year:
" Since the meeting of a committee of the Sugar Planters As
sociation with the Executive Council on the 17th inst., the Pre
sident has received advices from the American Government
which justify a change of the contemplated policy of the Hawai

" All applications for labor immigration permits" filed before
the end of this month, accompanied with the additional state

" A further statement is also requested with such applications,
