A British exchango remarks

To what degroo Hawaii's indus
trial affairs aro in tho bands of
the Japanoso is evidenced by tho
flurry occasioned on Hawaii by
the' high wages offered by Japa
neau contractors. Word Bout is out
that Japanese contractors working
for tho Olaa plantation offer high
wages and there is a general rush
among free and contract laborers
to tako advantage of tbo raise.
Whether the contractors have sud
denly become philanthropic or
seek to make things uucomfortablo
for tbo plantations is not stated. It
is apparent, howevor, that tbey
can iuterfere with tho goneral
routine of the plantations if they
onco set out to do it.
VIKLD FOR A SPECIAL AOrNT.
While tbo officials of tbo Re
public of Hawaii are contemplat
ing fending special agents hither
and yon it would seem propor that
tiny take up tho proposition of
sending a special agent to Europe
to investigate tho labor market
and sot to rights tbo channels
through which Hawaii has sought
or may seek laborers. Just at tho
present time the necessity for an
Hawaiian encyclopedia seems to
be in greater demand in Italy and
Portugal than in tho Unitod
It will bo a fortunato day for
Hawaii when tbo government goes
oat of tbo labor business, but
while it is in the business tbo offi
cials might well occupy their timo
in more active operations than
granting permits for additional
Japaneso laborers. Tbo planters
do not appear to have mot with .n
oiy road in obtaining the propor
tion of European laborers whicb
tho law demands. Now let the
Government officials put tbeir
shoulder to tho wheel and seo
what tbey can accomplish by tboir
owu personal efforts. Lot thorn al

of honesty tbey have demauded

no mistake if, for onco in its
career, it allowed Minister Damon
to have full swing' in the labor
business. What be could accom

can be put down as a foregone
