History of our own Islands, our own
country and every other country on the
face of tho globe lias taught this les
son with such unfailing regularity, tint
none though a fool need go astray.
The phllantlnoplsts Know It, the prac

middle class full appreciates tho fact
nnd the "newly rich" are not Ignorant
n! It, though the knowledge of thin laitt
class doesn't amount to much since
Its peopio are so taken up with their
own assumed self Importance.
Henco It Is that with tho onomice.
rrent that several thousand negro fami
lies are to be Imported to Hawaii, the
people renew the question, What Is to
bo tho Influence of the negro In the
homes of Hawaii?
The latest bulletin of the Federal de
partment of labor contains "a social
study" of the negroes of Sandy Springs,
Mar land. This thorough study of a
mixed community closo to the national
capital, surrounded by tho best of In
fluences Is not such as to ralso the
hopes of citizens of Hawaii when con
templating the Importation of large
numbers of negroes. The negro popula
tion of Sandy Springs dates back to tho
earliest dajs of tho American Repub
lic. Tho sentiment against slavery was
such that many were freed before the
Civil War. They had their schools
then, they liavo more progiesslve
schools now. Thej havo churches. Of
the fiS3 males and females In tho town,
00 per cent are engaged In agricultural
nnd domestic service. A good propor
tion of these negroes operate their own
fainis though ccniparatively few own
Omiged by si.iioundlngs nnd oppor
tunities past and piesent. the negio of
Sand Sittings ought to bo a man in
woman of high standards If the race as
a whole has tapnelt for high develop
ment. 1'lgures do not show tho negro of
Sandyviilo to lie a criminal. He seems
to he Invv nhldliu. Hut what of the
home? What of tho surroundings of
tho thlldirn? illegitimate children
nro common: "Infoimnl separations of I
married people have been followed bv
more or less formal mnnlages with
third and fourth poisons;" "more than
oneo two widows have been seen ami
cably and decently mourning by the
bier of the same defunct husband "
These aro cited ns matters "that put
tho statistician In n dilemma " There
Is no necessity to diaw attention to tho
BlnndaitU of molality thereby exempli
Speaking of tho vnluo of negroes In
domestic service tho statistician sas,
"In splto of tho good rxnmplo given
them they do not seem In any large pro
portion nt least, to learn to honor tho
vvoik the havo chosen to tho extent
of doing It fiom n sense of duty,
promptly nnd tlinioughly. nor to re
finln from the wry human desire to do
something else more ngteenlile and less
confining. Tlieie is a small
giotip of women, several of thrm oil-
glnally slaves, who nio ns shining jew
els Intlio housekeepers' eves; but only
a few of them lire In domestic seivico."
Taken h nnd largo thin icpoit tends
to show that Hawaii Is to add to its
citizenship. Its community of homes, n
licoplo of lax morals, a people who
work not from a senso of duty or fiom
an interest In what the are doing, np
lrtesponslblo clnss that must lie edu
cated to higher standaids having fow
Inborn or racial teiidenc'fB to high
standards of citizenship or any marked
degree of thrift.
