If Favorable the People to Come Direct
to Hawaii in Families The Com
missioner so far Favorably
Dr. Eglsto Rossi, Italian Commit,
fcloncr ot Emigration to the United
States, at his room In the HI I to tiulld
lug very cordially received a Bulletin
reporter. When asked about his mis
sion (o the Hawaiian Islands he plung
ed right Into tho subject ,and In fluent
and graceful English led a most Inter
"'I am only at tho beginning of my
woik here," Dr. llossl Bald. "I linvo
tailed six of tho plantations on this
Island ot Oahu. On Friday 1 leave for
Hawaii and from there will go to Maul.
"I was agreeably surprised nt vTTiat I
observed on my visits to the planta
t louo. Tho conditions are so favorable
for the cultivation of vegetables aaJ
fruits, which are much used by our
people as food. I saw the flno gardens
of Portuguese and they being a Latin
rare like tho Italians, what Is ngroa
sblo to one nationality would be so to
the other. Even tho Chlneso settlers
show what can bo done hero (h the
way of raising fruits and vegetables."
Dr. Kossle spokc with warm appre
ciation of tTio courtesy of the managers
of Honolulu, Oahu, Ewa, Wnlanuo,
Wnlalua and Kahuku plantations, who
gnvo him every facility for Investigat
ing all the conditions of lauor and liv
ing. It gratlilud him to sco the com
fcrlablc housing of tho laborers, and tie
spoke with admiration of the chapslj,
schoolhousci and hospital at Ewa. -
"It was a great 'surprise 'to me be
cause I had heard very prejudicial opin
ions regarding tho iTTwnllan planta
tions In San Francisco," tho Commis
sioner remarked. "There seems to bo
great prcjmllco there against theso Isl
ands. Probably It Is Instigated largely
by socialistic leaders. I have found,
so far as my Investigations havo gone,
that there is no foundation for TIio In
jurious statements made to mo beforo
Wining to tho Islands."
Dr. Rossi referred to the reports
abroad of tho driving ot laborers llko
cattle, tho whipping of them by over
seers, compelling of sick men to work,
etc.. and expressed the opinion that,
in any case, tho abolition of flic con
tract labor system would go far toward
removing all prejudices that now deter
good classes of emigrants fromlcavlng
other countries for Hawaii.
"My present mission docs not go .so
far," the Commissioner said in reply
to a question as to whether ho wero
negotiating with tho planters for tho
Introduction of his countrymen. "It
will all depend on the report I make to
my Government after a completo In
vestigation. "Yes, tho omlfrantsvfll como strictly
from the farming districts It my report
be tnvornble. Thoy will be In fami
lies. Wo shall not take scattered Indi
viduals from hero and there. The
gteatest care and prudence will bo ob
served by tho Oovcrnment in selecting
emigration for theso Islands. Eml
t ranis will como direct to Hawaii.

Dr. Rossi told ot his having had a
pleasant Interview with Mr. Drown,
Commissioner of Lands. He has form
ed a favorable opinion ot the Home
stead provoslons of tho Hawaiian' land
laws, reitar'lixr them as on the aeneral
tines of the United Stares sytrtMti.
The Commissioner discussed the
prospects of sugar and coffee, as well
as diversified Industries, with the Inter
viewer. His tone was that of one 'deep
ly Impressed with the conviction or a
prosperous future for Hawaii.
Dr. Rossi has been for years In full
charge, for the Government of Italy,

States, having his headquarters In New
York City. From his last year's re

76 4S9 people. For the fiscal year end
ed June 30 last Dr. Rossi says more
than 100,000 Italians landed In the
United States. The Commissioner

ness n.nke him a model gentleman to
The registration of the Chinese in
habitants of the Territory of Hawaii

JUDGE ESTEE'S COURT
Judge Estee adjourned tho United
Slates District Court after n short ses
sion until Friday morning nt 19
o clock. A difficulty about borrowed
exhibits In the Claiidlno admiralty
cases obstructed tho proceedings, flieso
exhibits, consisting nfnmxlels of the
Clatidlnc and the William Carson,
sIv'pV side llghtSjmaps, etc., were loan
ed tythq Supreme Court of Die Ter
ritory under astipulation for tiielr to
turu at the close of the two trials.
It transpired, afWthc cases neta
called today, (that the parties on both
3ldt-s wero determined to take, an ap
peal, no matter what the decision, to
the Court ot Appeals ot the Ninth Cir
cuit. In that event exhibits used In
the trial below would havo to go up
with tho appeal.
Although flic Supreme Court here has
decided that tho Issuo between the own
ers of tho Claudlne Is a sealed book, ye;
tho latter are endeavoring to securo
recognition ot an appeal to tho Fc'Qcr.il
Coutts In that case. This gives valuo
to th ccxhlblts above that of old junk
to which otherwise they would be do
gtaded. "Judge Estee made a decision to
which counsel agreed. Ho will confer
iilth Chief Justice Frcar In hope of
getting, his consent to allow tho ex
hibltr go up to tho Court of Appeals
for ute In all tho Claudlne-Carson cases
that may bo entertained by that tribu
nal. Tho reason tor making so much
futs about the exhibits ts that It would
cost r pretty penny to havo them du
plicated. The Claudlne libels beforo tho Feder
al court have never been In tho Terri
torial courts. Tho case on which an ap
peal Is being taken to the Court of Ap
peals of the Ninth United States Circuit
relates to the loss of tho bark William
Carson. Thoso now before Judgo Es
tee relate to tho personal effects ol
C'.ptaln I'lltz, master of tho lost vos
tel, ond to tho cargo, respectively.

against tho Walklkl Beach Co. for !Gl
oi account ot liquor supplied to
