Instrumental In dumping tho Portl Ill
cans on California, the Examiner nieir
ly lands thefco people where they arc
not needed. The laborers are needed In
Hawaii, whereas In California they are
merely nn addition to nn already over
loaded labor market.
If the reference, of all Hawaiian mat
ters before Congress1 to our Delegatu
Is a surprise party to the powers that
lie In the 'government" building, It
merely demonstrates how little they
appreciate what being an American
Territory means. The day has nasvd
when executive officials can assume a
supreme Indifference to duly recognized
representatives of the people.
If the Legislature has a proper re
gard for the manner In which taxpay

no more right to draw on the treasury

I-UNDS FOR COMMITTBE.
Treasurer Oilman reported nt last
night's meeting of the Republican char
ter committee that he Is unable to col
lect funds for the committee from the
usual sources. TIiIh Is Indeed a rleh
commentary on the public spirit of Ho.
no til u citizenship. Just what Mr. Oil
man's usual sources arc he does not
say, but It Is safe to presume they In
clude the so-called "best people" of
the community representing consider
able wealth. The reasons given for re
fusal are not stated. H may bo pover
ty or nioro likely the refusal to con
tribute is due to opposition to the chur
If It Is opposition lo tho charter that
piompts the refusal, second sober
thought must nt once convince these
"usual sources" that they aro pursuing
a decidedly short sighted course. It
may be possibly to delay the enact
ment of tho municipal charter by re
fusal to contribute funds, but wo doubt
it. The question the people have to
decldo Is whether they prefer that tho
legislature start out with a chaotic
charter Idea or havo presented to It a
measure that has been thoroughly
studied and presents facts, figures and
suggestions In proper, concise and com
In view of tho fnct that tho business
men nnd lawyers making up either or
both tho charter committees now at
work, nre giving time from their own
business or pleasure, It Is an unfortun
ate reflection upon the cl"!a
pride ot tho community, that
the men will be able to niako contri
butions will dovotu neither time nor
tho small amount of money necessary
to pay for the clerical work of the com
mittees. , There nro any number of
men on these committees whoso fee
for tho same amount of work In their
profession would amount to twice the
flguro asked to merely cover ordinal y
clerical expenses. Not all these men
aro ardenetly In favor of the charter
movement, but they are BUdlclently
broad minded to assist In studying the
situation and flaming tho best law

Another consignment of Porto Rlcan
laboicra Is reported en route for tho
Hawaiian sugar plantations. It Is
said that this detachment Includea
more than 400 sturdy destitutes who
aro glad to get tho wages olterod by tho
sugar planters because they were starv
ing In their own country. As soon ns
the Porto Rlcnns arrive In California.
the Examiner will tell them that they
are to bo sold Into slavery to tho Chi
nese of the Hawaiian Islands, nnd
many of the simple, credulous people
will undoubtedly dump themselves
upon the charity and the labor market
of this State.
The Examiner's pauper labor bureau
Is now In excellent working order nnd
no difficulty will be experienced In 8c
curing "places" for as many of this
hew Importation ns may he Induced
to llee from "the slavery of the cane
brake fens," as one of the Examiner's
slnff of Weeping Willies described th
labor conditions of the Islands. The
Examiner's paupers are so poor that
they will "work for their board" and
there nre hundreds of Examiner sub
scribers who nio mean enough to em
ploy labor on these terms. The Kx
nmlnrr has ndvertlsod that It has "se
cured employment for nil" the Porto
Rlcans" whom It Induced liy Its lies
to dcfert from the last consignment of
this pauper labor. The working men
nnd working women of California will
note that the Examiner does not pub
lish the wages paid to these people. It
dare not tell the people of California
that It Is encouraging nn Immigration
of labor so servile nnd destitute that It
Is glad to "work for Its board." lint
this Is the fact, ns the most casual in
vestigation will demonstrate.
The Porto Rlcnns whom the Exam
iner Is dumping upon the labor mar
ket of California are told that thrv
must "work for their board" until
"something better" can bo provided
for them. They are promised as high
ns "ten dollars American" as soon as
the pauper labor bureau can Induce the
laboring men of California to submit
to this competition. The Examiner ha
no fear that the laboring men nnd wo
men of California will dnre to protest
against anything the Examiner sees
(It to do. And If they do object the
Exnintner. with characteristic effron
tery, will tell them that the sugar
planters nnd the transportation com
panies arc to blame for permitting the
Examiner liars to seduce and scare
the paupeis Into leaving the employ
ment of the planters to "work for their
board" In Cnllfornln. That explanation
will satisfy the laboitng men nnd wo
men of this Stole, for they know that
while the Examiner Is In tho habit of
lying about everything else, It would
not He about Its pauper labor bureau.
The Examiner Is making extensive
preparations to force tho Porto Ill
runs now en route to the Ilnwallun
Islands upon the labor market of thin
State, nnd the management of that Pa
per Is confident that It can dump at
least 200 of these paupers into competi
tion with the labor of the State at
Surely it Is about, time that the la
bor organizations took measures to
protect themselves against tho compe
tition of the Examiner's pauper labor

' DID IIC 8TEAL GRAPES?
Joseph Gomez wns arrested lail
night at nbout 8 o'clock by Special'
OOlcers Kealakat and Ah On on Klii'J
street, near the depot. The oIHceis
were walking along together watching ,
out for anything suspicious that might
happen to turn up when they saw the
Portuguese walking nlong In the sha
dows near the snloon In the vicinity.
They rcsulved to keep n good watch on
tho man ns he hnd n bag filled wit.;
something nnd wns walking along In
very gingerly manner. He soon cauelit
sight of Ihc oulcers and when he did.
he started to run. The ofllcers tallH
on him to stop but he would not. All
On, being the fastest runner of the two
ofllcers, gave chase and, upon catchltrc
up with the man. put out his foot nn.t
tripped the fellow up. Kealnkol was
not very far behind nnd the two 'offi
cers took the man to the police station
Upon arrival there, the bag opened
nnd was found to contain a lot of green
grapes which looked very much ns If
the Portuguese hnd been In someono'a
vineyard and, the night being dnrk, had
been unnble to distinguish between
green nnd ripe grapes.
Gomez wns very sharply questioned
by the Deputy Sherllf this morning
but he could give no satisfactory ex
plantations of his wherenbouts on
the night before. He contradicted him
self right nnd left nnd finally wound
up with the statement that he ha I
bought the grapes fmm n Chlnnmnn
nnd had paid him n dollar for them.
This Chinaman ho had never seen be
fore. Frank Kcrrelrn will be sent out
on Punchbowl today to find out If any
Portuguese of the settlement has miss
ed any of their grapes since last nigh:.
