AGAINST KAPIOLANI ESTATE.
Mm. L. K. Puahl has brought suit
for Injunction against tho Kaplolanl
Estuto, Ltd., to stop further proceed
ings In tho ejectment suit ngntnst her
that pertain to n certain plcco of prop
erty un Emma street, Kaakopun, nnd
Judgo Perry has granted thlB on tho

satisfactorily arranged for.
Complainant states that sho had tho
property under dlsputo from Klnolkl
and that tho latter disposed of tho
samo to tho Kaplolanl Estate, Ltd., by
unlawful means. Complainant nsks:
1. A temporary Injunction restrain

tho action In ejectment until tho fur

2. For permanent Injunction re
straining the defendant from proceed

3. For specific performance of the

4. For an order and docrco requir

of the terms of tho ngrccment with
Merchant Street Nuisance.
Notwithstanding tho fact that the
pollco have notified tho proper people
about attending to tho flow ot water
from tho rear of tho von Holt block
out on Merchant street, nothing seems
to have been done. It is now weeks
slnco tho flow began and peoplo who
havo occasion to pass to and fro on

Tho second dny's session of tho Ha
wnllnn Planters' Association opened at
about 10:45 o'clock this forenoon, with
qulto a largo attendance. Thoso pres
ent wero as follows: C. M. Cooke, C.
Ilolto, Dr. Walter Maxwell, Olding, H.
Morrison, Anton Cropp, A. Isenbcrg,
Horner, E. llnlstead, H. P. Haldwin,
II. W. Schmidt, A. Lindsay, Dickey, T.
Cllvo Davics, E. A. Baldwin, C. Weight,
II. M. Whitney nnd eight or ten oth
ers. C. Bolto opened tho work of tho
meeting by rending tho report of tho
tommlttco nppotnted to look Into tho
mnttcr of labor in tho Islands. Tho re
port made no recommendation. Labor
undoubtedly Is tho most important sub
ject to tho planters, says the report.
Tho abolition of the contract system
and tho Introduction of tho United
States laws opens up a most serious
question. Whqn this stnto of affairs has
come nbout tho sourco of supply will
be limited to the peoplo coming here nt
will nnd on their own responsibility,
trusting to what they may find to do ns
a means of sustenance.
Tho extension of the old plantations
and tho formation of now ones makes
tho demand for labor nil tho more
great. Labor Is tho corner stono on
Which tho great Industry of tho coun
Circular letters wero sent out to all
the plantation managers asking them
to hand In somo recommendations In
regard to labor. Tho answers were
fow nnd unsatisfactory, probably bo
causo, like tho members of tho commit
tee, they hnvo found no satisfactory
solution to tho problem.
One manager recommended the ap
pointment of a committee of thruo to
consist of ono director, ono layman and
nno plantation manager. In tho opin
ion of the committee this was a good
It was Imposslblo to got any stntls-.
Mrs nnd it any recommendation wero
mndn It would bo In tho unsatisfactory
shnpo of an cstlraato or guess work.
Tho profit sharing schemo wns
thought good, this courso having pro
ven very satisfactory on different plan
tations. Dr. Maxwell will mako a study
of tho profit sharing question when ho
gocu to Queensland in tho near future.
It Is a well known fact that profit shar
ing Is extensively carried on In Queens
land. A communication from Manager Old
ing recommended negro labor from tho
Southern States of tho United States.
Tho Japaneso wero becoming less val
uablo every day on nccount ot their dis
position to combine, tho valuablo la
borers being ruled by tho loafers.
Mr. Dolto then read Dr. Maxwell's
report, written for Mr. Ray nnd acting
as n special agent under Mr. Ray. In
Dr. Maxwell's report is given tho his
tory of labor lu this country from tho
tlmo tho nntlvo Hawallans wero used

Manager Horner made tho suggestion
that the committee appointed to look
into tho matter of labor supply might

Manager Horner then proceeded to
show tho dlffercnco between "luaulng"
and "leading." Lunns should bo ablo
to set a good pace in tho work In tho
fields. In this way much moro could
bo got out ot tho mon. Several pat Il
lustrations wero given by the speaker.
II. P. Baldwin spoke on profit shar
ing, expressing n doubt as to its suc
cess. If thcro was a moro Intelligent
class of labor on tho plantations this
courso might bo thought of but, with
tho present laborers, there would al
ways bo a suspicion on their part that
they wero not getting their just des
serts. - A good plan and ono that has turned
out most admirably at tho Hawaiian
Commercial and other plantations was
tho letting out of land to different la
borers for cultivation by tho ton. Un
der this system tho men to whom tho
land Is let out keep tho fields continu
ally clear and turn out tho finest kind
Mr. Baldwin stated that ho had his
doubts as to tho proposition ot negro
laborers mado by Manngcr Olding. Tho
reading of stories of outrages In tho
South mado him think that thcro wero
not a vory dcslrnblo class.
Manager Olding spoko ot tho desira
bility of tho negroes as laborers. They
wero just tho men to have in tho cauo
Holds and would be no more harmful
than any other class of laborers. Judge
Hart spoke against tho negroes and re
ferred to Senator Morgan's article In
tho North American Rovlow in which
ho says: "For God's sake let us get
rid of the negroes."
Mr. Olding asked why It watt that
the negroes commanded such high
wages If thoy'wero such undeslrablo la
borers. No doubt Scnntor Morgan wns
very much prejudiced ngnlnst negroes.
Dr. Maxwell followed tho last speak
er, saying: 'John Dlmond, editor of
LoulslanaiPlanter, has stated that tho
Italian labor lu tho cano fields nnd
mills nro tho best and demands tho
highest pay. They do pleco work most
ly nnd tho negroes cannot keen tinr-o
with then!. In getting negro labor hero
It would be Impossible to get the best
negro labor from tho southern cane
fields. Wo would have to content our
selves with tho rlff-rnft of tho cities
which would bo most undeslrablo. Tho
good negro laborers on the plantations
of the South nro the standby of the
growers npd they would not bo liable
10 iet mem ieao tneir employ.
Tho labor nuestlon was then con
sldered from two standpoints,, ono that
of the plantation, the second from n
standpoint, of policy. It In necessary
to get lauorcrs who will uccomo per
manent nnd valuable citizens nnd nlso
to convince tho United Stntes Govern
ment that our efforts aro In this direc
tion and that wo are trying to Intro
duce permanent laborers who will bo
como dcalrabio citizens of tho United
Stntts. Plant men on tho plantations
who will become vnlunblo citizens.
Mr. Morrison "Why Is our present
labor not satisfactory? What Is the
reason tho laborers cannot be mado to
stay on the plantations? Our condi
tions should bo mado so that tho pres
ent lnbor would bo willing to stny. We
will never bo ablo to successfully work
European or American laborers under
tho gang system. What Is tho need of
Introducing other labor than whnt we
H. P. Baldwin "Tho trustees of tho
Association and Individual planters
have mado great efforts to obtnln Eu
ropean nnd American laborers, but
with llttlo success. Tho Gallclans were
brought hero but with whnt result Is
known. Tho great nctlilty In nil lines
In tho States Is probably nccountnble
for our small success In Inducing
American labor to como to tho Islands.
Under tho changed conditions wo havo
the contract labor system ilono away
with, wo have to faco tho situation as
It Ik. ' Plans must be adopted."
Mr.'Monlson "Our treatment of tho
plantation labor Is probably n little
harsh.' Wero wo a bit moro humane
nnd considerate in our treatment of the
laborers. Tho Japaneso object to liv
ing BQvernI families In ono house ami
prefer n llttlo house or room for a fam
ily. Tho Chinese, on tho other hand,
llko to herd together."
Mr. Crop of Koloa "Wo uro losing,

C. M. Cooko "Slnco receiving a let
ter from Paul Isonberg of Bremen,
which stated that In Germany It was
necessary to send to Poland nnd other
places outsldo for Held laborers I havo
rather despaired of looking for aid In
that direction. It Is my Idea that the
plnutalons should bo mndo moro at
tractive to the laborers ami that hos
pitals should bo established whoro
careful tientmcut could bo given the
sick. They nro nppreolatlvo of any

thing wo should do."

left to a commlttco of thrco to bo ap

meeting adjourned subject to the call
of the trustees.
LABOR PROBLEM SOLVED.
At the session ot tho Planters' As
sociation this forenoon H. P. Baldwin
dwelt upon tho system ot letting out
plantation lands to various indepen

tried with grcnt success nt different
plantations and If studied out, would
