BETHEL : STREET,
The P. M. S. S. China left Yo
kohama a day behind time on her
trip from that port, leaving in the
morning of July 30th. The do
lay was caused by tho raging of a
typhoon in tho neighborhood of
Yokohama. Several Japanese
Stoamer Fuso Maru (312 tons)
of the Eano Btoamor Co. left Sa
kai in Hoki Pro'vinco for Bakan
on tho 11th inst., and the Bailing
vessel Daiui Quohi Marojleft
Otaru for Osaka on tho Gib inst.
Neither vessel has yet arrived at
i s destination, thouch oonsidor
ably overdue, and fears are onter
tainod for their safety.
The China experienced a plea
sant passage all the way to port.
Captain Soabury says that it is
a mistake that tbe, Araerici Maru
holds tho record from San Frau:
Cisco to nonoiuiu. run iaot is
that the China boasts the fastest
trip. This pasBHge was made in
1804, tho Chiu'n loaviug San Fran

The Mauurt Loa arrived in. port

made tho run to Knunakakai iu
1:51, stopped there fifteon minntos
and was forced to stop five
minutes outside to avoid the Iwb
lani that crossed hor bow on the
the way out tho channel. Count
ing stops, the trip to Honolulu
was made in a little over six hours.
Without the stops tho Mauni Loa
would have made tho trip to

This Was Cause of Delay of Lot of
Version of Situation Received By Cblna This
Morning Japan Looks Id Washington
And Not Honolulu.
Tho doubts and misgivings in
tli'e public mind regarding the
status quo of tho Japanese immi
gration situation at the present
timo, may bo sot at rest. Tho
Bulletin, on tho information re
ceived by tbo China to day, is
enabled to give its readers what is
confidently asserted to bo the facts.
" To begin at tho beginuing :
Some time ago there was formed,
for mutual benefit of tho Immi
gration Companies and tbo Plant
ers, a combination by which rates
wero agreed upon, aud an undor
standing arrived at by which
thore should be do clash bo.
tween tho interested partios.
A lawyer was retained who
draw up articles of agreemVnt
wuicn weredury signeu ana
every thine seemed to bo all right.
Alter n time turoo ot tbe planta
tion firms formed a combination
with threo of tho immigration
cntnpanio8 in an alleged effort to
freezo out tho two other of tho
fivo immigration companies iu tho
matter of supplying contract
Mis-representations were made
by these three companies, the
gents of which aro the members
of a poworful political parly in
tho land of the Rising Sun in
Ian endeavor to hurt tho indepon
dont companios with the
Japanese government. False
reports ?urf spread in Japan
ooucerning the treatment ac
corded laborers - in this country
brought hero under tbo auspices
of tho companies not io the com
bine which was formed within
the first union.
"As far as the Japanese Gov
ernment is conoernea there was
no idea on its part to obeck tbe
imraicration to this oountry it is
primarily a paternal government
ind of course hearing of the re
ports in circulation made investi
gations and fonnd everything to
i s satisfaction. Tho reports
which had been spread broad
oast in tbe districts whero recruit
ing was Igoing on put a stop to
tho laborers signing for work hero
in the fields for awhile but the
Japanese Government had nothing
to do with it. The laborers stay
ed at home of their own volition."
In closing the Bulletin's in
formant stated that when tbe Ha
waiian Government took action
eomo timo ago on tbo labor ques
tion, tho Japaneso Government
wanted to know if its subjects
were not welcome to come to this
oountry. If they were not wel
oomo the Mikado's government
would Bond the men who might
find employment hero to Forinoae,
