'After the ratification of the recipro
city treaty between Hawaii and the
L'nlted States In 187". tho sugar Indus
try In 'the Islands' began to bloom, and
there was a sharp demand for labor
which the government, was glad to
help by assisting contract Immigration.
Some Polynesians and a great many
Portuguese were Imported, but the cost
of getting Portuguese was very great,
sometimes running ns high aB $100
laborers could be brought from Japan
at a total cost of $S7, SCO of which they
"The Immigration of tho Japancso
began In 1SSG, when n treaty was soli
cited from the Japanese government
recognizing tho rights of such Impor
tation. In that year 1,152 men and 2:
women wcro taken over. In 1890 there
wcro 12.C30 Japancso In Hawaii; In
1S9G a conservative estimate placed the
number nt 30,000. Exactly how many
are there now It Is Impossible to say.
Annexation hastened their coming. In
anticipation of tho extension of the Im
migration laws to tho now Territory,
and In this report for last year the
commissioner general of Immigration
said ho bad received ttnomclnl Informa
tion of the arrival of 23,000 contract Ja
pancso since July 7. 189S. This would
swell the total to too largo a flgur".
Thirty thousand n year ago Is prob

"Most of tho contracts provided th it
tho passage money should bo ndvancd

of SI or $2 a month; that tho pay of n

with extra pay for overtime, and frco

attendance In enso of sickness, and Hint
a month should consist of twenty-?!::
ten-hour days; that If tho man brousht
his wife she should be employed at
from $7.50 to $10 a month, and that the
laborer should ngrco to work faith
fully during tho term of his service.
"In Amorlcan eyes tho most obnox
ious feature of this system was tho
law whereby an employe 'deserting la

was called, could be tried and punished
as a criminal, a fcaturo that has only
recently been abolished under Ameri
"Of late, Japanese labor In tho Islands
Is nssumlng a phasa unsatisfactory to
tho employers. Compared with th
placid Chinaman, tho Jap Is n good
deal of an agitator. Ho Is apt to preach
discontent, form unions and resort to
strikes. This makes him dnngeroui

WOMEN AS BUILDERS
House building Is one of the Indus
tries entered Into by women of tho
United States, A year rgo It was a
Herman woman nnd her two daughter
that built a brltk house In Chicago;
now It Is Mrs. George Lease In Kan
lucky, to be explicit, nt Fountain retry
I'ark, near Louisville. Mr. and Mi.
Lease Hie young married people were
anxious to hnve a house of their onr
but unable to hire an architect nnd ear-
penters. Therefore tho mntcrlnls
were bought nnd the house was beln-j
mult In the end ofAugust .nnd very
likely Is done by this time, for It was
to bo a one-story house of four room,
with a stone foundation. Tho storv
seems to be this: Mrs. Lcnso wished to
build the house because ho had work
and it wns necessary to do It. The
stone was brought, the lumber bought
and while the husband Is gone during
the day the wlfo tugs the timbers and
sets them In place; when the husban 1
comes home at night they work togetb-
er, nnd to such purpose that when the
aiury was written iin. Lease was
shingling and expected to lathe nnd
plaster as soon ns Hint wns finished.
There was pluck, strength nnd perseve.
rnnce. riven more enterprising Is Mlr.s
Sara L. Dunning, who lias this summer
finished her home on Fourth lako In
the Adirondack's with the work of hr
own hands. Tables nnd chnlrs wero
made from branches of white blren
with the bnrk left on, and being a wo
man she mndo the chairs serve n dou
ble purpose, boxing them with boards
making (be seats with a cover, so that
each chair Is n cupboard. Her book
cases nnd closets nrc'mnde from her
packing boxes nnd one serves for a
eorncr stand. In another tent which
serves as kitchen Miss Dunning has
mndo dresser cupboards nnd tnbles. On
tho edgo of tho Inkn she hns built a
dock for her boating convenience, nnd
In tho big hemlock before her do.i.
sho hns built a Tending room, widen
she reaches by a Might of steps, also
made by her. Most of her mntcrlils
aro flotsam nnd Jetsam found on the
lake It Is understood that the pride
of her heart Is the stnlrwny to her
dock, or rather It Is Its handrail, of
which she Is proud. This Is mndo of
small birch treo trunks, and tbrlr
graceful curves and beautiful color add
much beauty to tho original stairway.
