America Is strong enough to refine
to accept the Kuropcan policy that
In order to obtain favorable consider
ation tho Chinese Government must
be treated harshly. The move to re

is highly proper, coming from a coun
try that does not need tho money.
Amendments to the Organic Act are
sometimes brought about with extra
ordinary speed and in unexpected
places. If a start is to be made at
this session of Congress, Hawaii will
know whero It ends when Congress
adjourns and all the sudden amend

mittee aro scanned.
The real Issuo In tho Republican
National Convention this year will be

the nomination. Hawaii's declaration
bhould therefore bo on principles rath

of Hawaii Itoosovcltlnn or Reaction

It ought to be Bald for tho men en

porations, that they have, In my Jtulg
ment, exercised a liberal, progressive
and patriotic attitude In connection
with the question of tho Introduction
of tho right kind of labor and Its prop
or utilization In Hawaii,
A great deal Is said In Hawaii about
tho Introduction of small farms and
Miinll holders. Do you realize tho fart
that about 80 per cent of tho land
that Is susceptible for tho cultivation
of sugar cano is now under cultiva
tion? And do you rcallzo further tho
fact that all land that is arable In tho
archipelago Is simply that surround
ing the mountnlns, which were thrown
uii during volcanic upheavals, and run
ning up to tho foothills of tho moun
tains from tho seashore, one, two,
eight or ten miles ns tho camo may
be, and that when you get outsldo of
that zone, practically nothing can bo
cultivated or titled to advantage in
tho Hawaiian nrchlpclago except sug
ar? I haven't tlmo to speak of tho ex
tent to which othor agricultural pro
ducts such as pineapples, coffee, etc.,
can bo raised.
Why do not we have this labor
Americanized? It Is not being rapidly
Americanized. The Japanese are a
great factor In It. It Is said we are
not Americanizing the Japanese very
rapidly. That Is true. The Japanese
do not seem to be ashamed of the
country from which they come, and up
to date I have not learped of any very
good reason why they should be
On tho contrary thoy havo a right
to bo gratified' by tho fact that they

that can show' tho same degroo of .In

opment compared with tho preceding
period that tho Jnpaneso havo bIiowii
during tho lak fifty years, nnd they

Japanese has tho opportunity In Ha
waii to attend tho public schools; they
also havo their own schools. There Is
a prejudlco In Hawaii over tho fact
that they liao their Japancso schools,

osition. I havo no objection to tho

But this ought to be said: the at
