DID NOT GET LABORERS
FROM STATE OF CALIFORNIA
States Portuguese Are Too Prooperoiis
Would be Easy Matter to
Get New Bedford
M. A. Sllva. who Is connected with
(Sonaalves & Co. and whose proposed
trip to California after Portuguese la
borers was published exclusively In tho
Dulletln, returned In tho Zoalandta
Friday evening. In an Interview yes
terday, bearing on the work done by
him during his visit In California. Mr.
Sltva had the following to say to a
"I may as well say. In starting, that
I was not successful In the matter of
getting Portuguese laborers from Cali
fornia and this fact I attribute to two
reasons, as follows:
"First Tho circumstances had
changed materially since I bad last
heard. The Portuguese I thought I
could get to come, with their families to
work on the plantations of Hawaii net
wero In a very prosperous condition
nnd not at all Inclined to leave as
sured positions for something vogue
"Second Tho fact that somo of the
Portuguese wanted tlmo to preparo
themselves. I studied this matter care-
jfifuHv and found that It would not pay
sno to remain on the Coast for tho
' length of time necessary to allow the
Portuguese to settle up their affairs
preparatory to coming.
"There are n lot of Portuguese In the
i:.iat and particularly In New Bedford
v ho want to come out here .to work on
the plantations, and It may be that I
will make another trip In tho near fu
ture to make arrangements with such
of those who are willing to come. I say
I believe they will come because their
condition Is by no means as good ns
that of the Callfornlans and then again
the climate la much moro rigorous. I
do not bellcvo It would be difficult to
get them to come. However, tho mat
ter now restH with the planters.
"I may say that Mr. Durao, the man
who brought tho Portuguese that came
In the Zealandia, stated to mo that a
great number of New Bedford Portu
gese could bo secured. Of course you
know that this Is whero Mr. Durao got
his faylllcs from nnd ho knows what
he Is Inlklng nbout.
"So far as I am concerned, my work
U finished and 1 will not go on again
unless ordered so to do by the men
who bent me last time."
