Having nt Inat got Mime mono) to
live on the Legislature enn In the next
thirty dnys make up for the time lost
In the early part of the session. Any
and ecry legislative body has a
natural tendency to be obstreperous
when the neeessary wherewithal to
maintain an existence Is lacking,
Judged by the amount of business!
turned out by the Senate this morning
the Uussel thunderstorm of threatened
resignation wacjust what was needed
to clear the ntmosphere. When 'the
Legislature goes forward on the "bust
lies Is business" plan there will be no
serious nnUigonlsnis from any portion
of the community.
Announcement that telegrams can
now be sent from Honolulu to Hllei
proes that Marconi's wireless teleg
raphy Is not only n pifcctlcal success,
but has solved the problem of Inter
Island communication which has been
sought by the business community for
years. What this means to the people
of this Territory Is best evidenced by
the various legislative measures pro
posing nnd efforts by Individuals ta
connect the Islands by telegraphic ca
ble. Those who see fit to disparage
the work of the men who hae finally
accomplished the establishment of local
telegraphic communication, ,nre! privi
leged to display their depth of char
acter. The business community Is cer
tainly highly gratified with ,the re
sult. " RUSH" AND REAL ESTATE.

covery. The estecmel morning eein
temporary has found something which
neither business men, tliene Interested
In tourist travel, the tneVehinlll houses
commission houses, the sugar planta
tions nor the st.itlntk.il bureaus have
found u "rush" to Honolulu.
I)y what line of travel did till
"rush" approach Honolulu? When
did it take Its departure? Where Is thu
transient boom population to which
this "rush" must necessarily refer'
Where can there be found any basis
whatever for the stntement that peopli
"rushed" to Honolulu nfter nnnexa'
Has there been anv reduction In
transportation rates to Honolulu In
order to bring people In as was done
In California and Is now being carried
out all along the westwn coast? None
whatever. 11ns there bicn or Is there
now any marked "ruth" of people to
settle In Honolulu? Not the least. Tho
steamship records do not show It. Peo
ple do not walk to Honolulu. Only one
steamer has eomn to Honolulu with a
passenger list that nouid make a fair
sized train load and that steamer
brought the ShrlncrB who certnlnly
cannot bo classed In tho "rush" or ns

Possibly the contemporary may re

Increased business of the plantations
has called for larger ofilie femes nnd

Tho whole sentiment of the business
community has been opposed In a

So far as Honolulu Is concerned, labor

Third reading of Senate bill 52. "An
Act to prohibit the employment of any
person not a duly iiinllfled voter of the
Terlrtory of Hawaii, as a laborer upon
any public work of any kind, manner
or description In the Territory of Ha
waii, by any public offleer. servant or
ngent of the Territory of Hawaii, or
by any contractor under nnd with the
Territory of Hawaii, and to provide a
penalty for the violation of such act.
There was quite a good deal of dis
cussion on this bill. Among , tho
speakers were Messrs. C Drown, Achl,
Carter. Whlto and Kalauokalarll. Tho
last named speaker among' other things
said that the way things were going
Just now. the natives nnd other Ameri
can citizens were being deprived of
work. Natives were coming here In
great numbeis every day and weje dy
ing off in this "hell-hole" of a Honolu
lu by the hundreds. If the work of
the government were given to tho
proper people, this continuous migra
tion would cease and the natives would
remain contentedly at home.
The Bpenker continued to the effect
that. If the work were g'ven to the na
tives nnd other American citizens
voteis of the Territory of Hawaii, the
Chinese and Japanese would bo driven
to their proper places, tho plantations.
In this manner, the labor problem
would. In n great measure, bo settled
and the plantations of the Territory
would cease to reach out after such un
desirable elements ns the Porto Illcans
and city negroes of the South.
