..APRIL 3, 1901.
And now comes one Wm. 11uwoch1,
Washington representative of the Plan
tcra' Association, who lays claim to the
glory of assisting In securing the con
firmation of Judge Gear by the t'nltwl
Should Judge Humphreys ecr desire
the position of Mayor of Honolulu,
It's a sure thing that the nntngonlsm
of the .Morning Organ would assure his
election. The fact of the matter Is
that the Org.in cannot find a sluglo
item of fact to support Its foolish mis.
representations In the dally fake He
partment. Yes Indeed, the Hawaiian Lcglslntuie
has nwile ninny breaks, hut It hasn't
caught up with the State of Montana
where the acting gotcrmi" signed a bill
that had nut passed the third reading
In the State Senate. This came about
through errors of the clerks, and only
the courts enn straighten out the affair
by killing the law aftr the sesriiuTa
Governor Dole refuses a request of
tho House because he can't see of what
assistance tlia Information desired will
be to the transaction of business. The
Governor has a right to his opinion,
but when was he appointed a director
or father confessor to the legislative
body? Under the circumstances, the
Governor niust shoulder the major por
tion of the responsibility for delays In
the transaction of legislative business.
Speaking of Republicanism, the only
thing the Dole regime has done since
the Territory ns erected has been to
continue a series of conflicts with Fed
eral authority, and by means of Its
foolish attitude toward reprcseatutlves
of the people, bring the Republican
policy of expansion Into disrepute. If
more was ever done by any executive
department to bring dlsciedlt to tho
party, than has been accomplished hcra
In Hawaii, it Is up to the Morning Or
Can to cite the Instance.
LABOR PROBLEM QUERY.
Starting out as an orginnl white la
bor advocate W. N. Armstrong returns
to Hawaii believing that American
mall farmers cannot be obtained for
the Hawaiian sugar fields and we must
depend on the Porto Rlcan, the South
ern negro and what not.
Mr. Armstrong does not hae tho
space In a newspaper Interview to go
Into extended details of the reason!
that have caused him to reach this con
clusion, It Is lumped In the assertion
that times are too good and land too
plentiful on the Mainland to cause Ha
wall to be given a second thought.
Prosperous times and abundance of
land Is admitted, but it would he In
teresting and valuable If Mr. Arm
Strong would explain the big transcon
tinental migration that Is now going
on whereby thousands of "homo seek
ers" are coming Into the Const States.
One of the most recent dispatches tells
of some 1400 homo seekers arriving at
Spokane In one lot. This Is merely on
of many train loads of migratory fami
lies that have been pouring Into Wash
ington, Oregon nnd California for the
last two mfinths. Most of them coma
from the Middle West, north of th
Mason nnd Dixon line, from the very
center of the most prosperous section
of the country.
These homeseeklng crowds Indicate
that tho old Yankee migratory spirit If
not dead notwlthstandlnr the great na
tional era of prosperity. It shows that
tho white farmers will move along new
or old routes If proper Inducements nmj
cheap transportation ratec are held nut
It is unquestionably true that the
American farmer will not work with
or lower himself to 'the labor stan
dards of Asiatics or negroes, And II
Is.nt Just this point that the local ex
periments with American farmers have
mndc n signal failure. No American
farmer will set himself and his family
down In n wilderness of Orlentnls. No
colony of fivo or ten American families
gives any prospect of success to the In
cal plantations. Only through the Im
portation of fifty families or more for
caclT plantation Is thcro the least pos
alblllty of the American farmer being
contented on any Hnwallan plantation
or provlug n satisfactory Investment
for tho plantation owners,
Fifty or ono hundred American farm
era put down on nny ono of our planta
tions would constitute a fair sized com
munity separate nnd apart from Asia
tics or any other laborers of a similar
clasB. Until such time ns this policy
It carried out there Is very reason why
while labor should bo Impossible for
Hawaii. When It Is taken up, the
Jlulletln believes tho American farmer
will look with ns much favor on mya
tlon to Hawaii us he docs now irpon
seeking n new homo and better pros
peclB In tho fur West
'As Mr. Armstions ha kIvcii the la
bor problem considerable study, hi
Ideas on this phase of tho matter would

STATEMENTS OF A MAN-
WHO WAS ONCE HERE
Times Are Not the Same as When
Kalakaua Lived Surprise
at Honolulu's News
papers. For the past several weeks Ed Tuck
cr an old time resident of Honolulu,
has been renewing old friendships
along the beach and uptown.
After nn absence of fourteen years
the former chief engineer of the Kl
nau has jettirnctl to Honolulu In And
changes that. If predicted at the time
he left, would han been looked upon

then u ouug man, made his first visit
to Honolulu In the Pad lie Mali steamer
Collmn, tunning from San Francisco to
Sydney. In H77, he took up his resi
dence here and remained until 18S6,
when he returned to San Francisco
and entered Into business for himself.
While here. Mr. Tucker was with the
Wllders nnd was very close to S. ().
Wilder whom Mr. Tucker now regards
ns one of the most far seeing then In
the Islands at that time. In conversa
tion with a Ilulletln reporter yesterday,
Mr. Tucker spoke as follows:
"Most of tho great changes npparent
here 'now, seem to be In line with the
great progress made by the town nnd
Islands In general. Some changea.nnd
Improvements seem to be of mush
room growth. Where, heretofore, Ho
nolulu was the principal port of the
Islands, through which all business was
done, there are now other ports.
"The old time customs nrc changed
Where, formerly, Honolulu was ns one
great Inmlly In whlih everyone ho
was respectable, was ns good ns any
body else, now, there me great class
distinctions and many stinngers. The
town Is gronlug to be like n big city
where neighbors do not know each I
in we urn iiuirs. ucu me ""'K.
S.im Wilder. Parker or any of the big
people gac a luau or party, overs on
went. Strangers coming to town were
known as soon as they arrived and
each one knew each other. Now, the
majority of people here seem to be new
"When I was first here, the Island
steamers consisted of the old Kllaucn
and tho I. Ikelike, the latter built to
take the former's place. When S. O.
Wilder talked steamer for the Inter
Island trade, he was roundly ridiculed
by thoe who claimed that here where,
the trade winds blew nlno months out
of the year, steam would be an expen
slve and worthless luxuiy.
"On the floor of tho Legislature ho
was laughed at when he attempted to
get n subsidy for the building and
maintenance of a steamer. Schooners
were' the thing. Now. with the tre
mendous Inter-Inland tralllc, the fore
sight of Wilder Is acknowledged nnd,
where one steamer was formerly sjitn
clcnt for the trode now, with about
twenty, there Is room for more.
"The city has advanced materially In
business houses nnd methods. The only
thing It. Is backward In is the street car
system. There Is no street rallwny that
deserves the name and the dlfllculty of
tralllc Is bound to keep the city bnck.
A man living any distance out of town
bus no decent means of reaching his
home except In n, hack. A rapid tran
sit syBtcm needs to bo Installed and
when Installed, to he run In the Inter
ests of the community nnd not entire
ly for tho owners. The present means
of transportation In street cars Is n dis
grace to nny civilized community nnd
no other city the size of Honolulu In
the United States would tolcrato It.
"Tho Honolulu water system Is good
and well managed and your Honolulu
Iron Wmks are a credit to the town
nnd a monument to the men who have ;
been Instrumental In bringing tho con-1
ccrn to Its present fine stnndnrd
"There Is not a plant In the I'nlted
States of tho size of the Honolulu Iron
Works that Is superior to the local
"There Is no question about tho need
of the Introduction of municipalities in
this Territory. This inodo of goveiu
ment Is the natural one under Ameri
can law. The reins of government
should be In tho hands of municipal
nfflceis and Honolulu should be con
trolled llko other cities of Its sire on
"In the time I have brcu away, there
scorns to hao been a treat change 111
tho way money Is spent. When 1 was
hero before, everyone had money, H
counted for very llttlo mid wnB lavish
ly Bpent. While the values have great
ly Inci eased and some lurgo fortunes
have been-made, tho general public
(does not appear to hnvo money
hpend as In former years,
"When the Nli-arnKim cnnnl la
tlironuh nnd tho cable laid, Honolulu
ulll enter In upon nn ein of pmsptjilty
little dreamed of by people here now,
( think that tho city will more than
dniililo In Importance mid population,

cable connections, will be the port of
call of the Pacific. Being In (he direct
tfack of commerce It will necessarily
exert a greater Influence as time rocs
on and trans-Pacific commerce grows.
''As the port of call, Honolulu must
make Improvements In her harbor to
accommodate the. great steamers that
are now telng built. In tho near fu
ture, tho average PacPlc freighter will
be larger than any class of Bteamcrs
now afloat. t
"This Is true because where, on the
Atlantic but 3300 miles of distance
arc to be invered In the Pacific, mure
than twice 'hat distance has to be gone
over from the Pacific coast to Asla'and
our new possessions. To make up ag
gregate earnings. It will be necessary
tor the Pacific steamers to be of greater
tonnage and carrying rapacity than
those In use on the Atlantic. In my
opinion the next twen'y-dvc years will
see the largest steamers In the worid
plying between ports In the Pacific.
"The harbor here will have to be en
larged and the channel straightened
and deepened. As nn annex, Kntlhl
harbor must be Joined to the Honolulu
harbor or else the prlnrlpal port will
turn out to bo Pearl Harbor, Tho ac
commodations nt present offering, are
absolutely Inadequate; consequently
the changes to meet the demand must
be made before the city can feel the
hcnclU which change Is bound to
' "Thft present marine railway has
passed Its usefulness ns a dry dock for
this port and there will have to he a
!lT 'lock capable of handling the great
vrBseis in mine ..ere. u u mj uuui ,,.
sufficient capacity should be built here, i
vessels would e more innn iiicusruj
to come here for repairs and cleaning i
purposes. The climate here ennbles a
vessel to be cleaned and to dry ns well j
by night ns by day, preventing the cold
sweat from accumulating on the ves
sels as' It docs In cold climates. i
"Taking It nil In all, there has been '
a great change here and. In my opin
ion, the prosperity of the Territory Is
Just beginning. There Is one thing
more I want to say and that Is that you
newspaper fellows deserve all the
credit In the world for the papers you
get out. Considering the limited news
nrca here. It Is a mystery to me how ;
you do It."
