IMMIGRATION OR GALLERY PLAY
Responding to Tho Bulletin's query
as to tho sincerity of Secretary'Atkln
aon'3 methods In dealing with Euro
pean Immigration, publication Is made
of tho clipping produced In this paper
from the 8an Francisco Call. The Call
article Is paralleled with a news story
that was published In The Bulletin of
a previous date. Tho assumption Is
made that tho correspondent of the
Call took his article from Tho Bulletin
newr-artlcle. Wo assume that this Is
a statement of fact, as tho correspond
ent la probably responsible for It.
This brings tho wholo matter right
down to tho facta and Incidents which
have cither furnished Increasing evi
dence that tho Secretary of tho Terri
tory In lambasting tho planters was
playing fast and loose with the Gov
ernorship taking precedence over tho
Immigrant or was and hns been won
Tho nrtlclo published as n news
etory In Tho Bulletin was tho dltcct
result of a conversation of tho Secre
tary of the Territory with an acknowl
edged opponent of plantation Interests.
While direct quotations wcro not
- used, the statements theroln contained
wero the reflection of tho definite Im
pression conveyed by tho talk of the
Territorial Secretary. There was no
qucttlon of tho Secretary's attltudo
tint '..at occasion.
Furthermore, thero can bo no quo
tlon that the Secretary In bis remarks
to & Bulletin representative gavo the
Impiesslon that ho was well pleated
with the general atmosphere of tho ar
ticle published by Tho Bulletin.
Ytt within twelve hours after, tho
Secretary of tho Territory repudiated
through tho columns of another paper.
certain of the ursertlons for which h s
words furnished tho basis.
Not only this. When the rdltnrlil
comment of Tho Bulletin did not lol
low along the same linen as tho news
story, the Secretary delivered hlmscl
of expressions unprintable but (
tho effect that the Bul
letin is sucking at plantors' pup. '
Such changes of front may represent
a policy that will bring European Im
migrants to tho Territory, If thoy do,
then The Bulletin confesses that It has
misunderstood the real purpose of the
Secretary They are, nevertheless,
matters of fact.
It Is all very well to cry out that
Tho Bulletin Is Btrlvlng to discredit tha
Territorial Administration, but the rec
ord of events points moro strongly to
tho Territorial Administration discred
Whether the Becrctary Intends It or
tiot wo assume that ho doesn't ho
is creating the Impression that the
only definite Immigration policy Is to
bo all things to all men. Meanwhllo
tho European Immigrants aro just as
, many miles from Hawaii as they over
were. The only result Is bluster at
tho planters one day, variation or re
pudiation of the bluster (he next
If the people have erred In assuming
that all this Is a play to tho gallery for
tho supposed purpose, of feeding per
gonal ambition, the error is entirely
human, No competent policy of state
Is over one thing today and directly
opposite tho next, according to real or
euproscd views of tho Individuals en-
countered. Slnco the kaleidoscopic
changes aro not In keeping with a com
petent policy of state, the apparent ex
planation turns naturally In the dlrec-
tlon of personal nsplratlona or folly j
Thcro Is no necessity for damning
tho planters In public nnd a fow dafi
then alter allowing It to bo understood
lu private that only a little damn was
meant That will not bring European
Immigrants nor solve tho vital labor
and social problems of this Territory.
Either tho planters arc acting In
pood faith or they arc not. ,
From all The Dullctln can observe,
they have not only acted In good faith
thus far but have backed their faith
with coin that has been expended by
tho Secretary of the Territory. If, In
deed, they are not doing what Is right,
there Is a fair- straightforward way of
dating their error. This has not been
done, but directly the reverse.
The Uullctln does not believe thcro
Is n plantation Interest In tho Islands
that docs not prefer a homesteaded la
borer to the transitory Indhldual liable
at any tlhio to tnkc up his bed and
walk. This paper does not believe any
good-sized number of Intelligent peo
ple will hold that an agricultural clasj
of white citizen-labor can be built up
In tha Territory except through the co
operation of the sugar plantations.
Assuming that this is tho situation,
what has the head of tho Territorial
Board of Immigration done lo get the
Immigrants, beyond twisting tho tall
of tho sugar-plnntntlon lion nnd then
sit still and declare that the beast must
come to 1II& policy.
Wlint Is HIS policy? The unexpect
ed Illness of tho Oovernor prevented
the trip of the Chairman of the Hoard
of Immigration to tho Azores. Ho wn
about to sail. What sudden change
has com'1 over tho condition of n fin Irs
when, after returning to tho Territory,
It Is apparently discovered thnt every
thing Is all wrong and must bo done
nve' again In order to saunro with the
Chairman s "policy 7
If the swnshbitckllng attltudo assum
ed by the Acting floernor is not to
curry favor with the alleged Ideas of
the President, then It doesn't rlso
question then arises whether tho I'rcsl
dent fully understands conditions or is
being "educated with a purpose
urgarmess or wnat nas ucen aono
or hasn't, tho straightforward method
Is the only proper, prompt and effect
lvu means of landing European Immi
grants In Han all, and that method has
not been adopted.
Until this Is the characteristic of the
Immigration policy, Inspired nrtlcles,
whether published In tha news-columns
of Tho Bulletin or grasped with avid
ity by certain foreign correspondents,
can make only one impression on the
community. Citizens of average Intel
ligence can understand tho difference
between buncombe and business like
policies, and tho wonder of It all Is
that there should bo so much time
wnstcd In shifting from pillar to post,
saying one thing to ono man and on-
othci to the next, when thcro aro bo
many earnest men,, nnd honorable In
tererts ready to back the clear-cut pol

Dear Mas. Pinkham: Lut spring, while wo were movlnr. t did considerable
mora work than my strength permitted, and, having- mental trouble at the same time,
my health broke down completely and I found myself unable to rest or est. My nerv
ous system became shattered and I u pals and emielited and hd to take to my bed.
My sister advised mo to try Lydla E. PInkham's Vegetable Compound, and.
although I had no faith In patent medicines, I wis so miserable thit I would tike any
thing (or relief, I found that It mads a complete change for the belter, Inducing appe
tite and restful sleep and Imparting new Ills and vigor to my entire system.
I gained nesrly fourteen pounds, my complexion looked fresh and clear, and my
best friends were surprised and pleased at tha change and could hardly credit the
fact that Lydla E. PInkham's Vegetable Compound had accomplished It.
