ITALIAN LABOR REPORT
President Dolo lina kindly far
Dished the Bulletin with tho
following report of Wray Taylor
on tbe Italian laborers at S. M.
Damon's placo in Moanalua:
In tbo introduction Mr. Taylor
details Hint he wa? instructed to
make a report on the condition of
Italian laborers in tlie Islands
The only Italians in tbo Islands
under coutrttct are those working
on tbe estate of Hon.S. M.Damon,
to tho number of sixteen. The
names of tbo laborers are given.

Early this morning (Aug. 8,18!)9)
I visited Maunalua, tskiug hd Ital
ian interpreter with me Jos. A.
Lucas. At tbe present time tbe
men are occupied in building
roads on tbe estate I wont among
th' m whilo at their work, ami
questioned them very thoroughly
as to their condition and treatment
during th' ir eight months resi
dence at Mammilla. Their ans
woib were with ono exception that
they had nothing whatever to
complain of ; their quarter' wore
very comfortable j they bod never
been ill treated, and they tvere
quite contented. Tho exception
was one MoutriBo Francesco who
tbougl.t a threo yearn' contract
was too long n time; that bo win
anxious to buy bis contract if Mr.
Damon would agree to it. Tlie
other men evidently did not agree
with him. FranceBco app tired to
me to Do Bligutly ampul, and this
was moro noticeablo as I put
lurtnt-r questions to bun. hie
admitted be had been well treated
but would rather wokasafreo
rutm Iu the short time ho has been
at Moanalua ho bus deposited
seventy dollars in tbo savings

Tho contract which these men
signed calls for eight hours work
eaoh day. They are working
however ton hours each day but
this is at their own voluntary
requoat. Thoy are paid for tbo
extra two hours in proportion and
are quite satisfied. Their quar

freshest kind of air; thoy have
excellent water and all tbo fuel
they require; and if tbey 60 desire
there is land for them to raiso
their own gardeu products.
It seemB to me from the investi
gation made that it is impossible
for these men to have any com
plaints, for everything possible is
done for their comfort and tboir
is no sign whatever of harsh
troatnieut. Tho mou all look

a very intelligent man and beforo

attention to au article which he
bad clipped from an Italian
paper staling that the Italians in
Hawaii wore nothing more than

a letter to this Italian paper deny
ing in to such a statement, for as
h- say-, tbero is not tho least
foil i dation for it.
Thes- sixteen men under con

hou-ed, and it might be as well to
uso tho exnrcrsi n of one of them

to me, "Mr. Damou be good man,

Before leaving Moanalua I visit
ed I lie dairy where I found two
brothers Giovanni and Gui-eppe
who live there wild ilmn- ,........
and two Bisters. Tbey all work
