CIRCULATION LARGEST OF ANY NEWSPAPER PUBLISHED
in the Territory of Hawaii.
Entired at the Poitofficr at Honolulu
aa second ilais matter
The pioblem sometimes arisen
whether a proved liar can commit .1
breach of faith.
No. The tourist business Is not a
failure. Supporters of Indifferent
transportation facilities have suc
ceeded. Governor Krcar niny lmc com
mitted lese mnjeste In declaring that
Hawaii's land law should be revised.
Hut he spoke the truth.
The new regulation tin Jnpanojc
emigration to Hawaii will make pop
ular tho Japanese with "plenty
friends" anvlous to como to Hawaii.
Some rank outsiders may wonder
what Job Mr. Kinney Is to under
take that will make It Impolitic for
him to be the official leader of tho
If Hawaii would win In tho woik
for tourists it must keep constantly'
nt It. To succumb to the first 111
winds that blow Is the part of the
malcontent and weakling.
Two shiploads of European Immi
grants Improved conditions in this
Territory. Open the way for a few
more of the same kind and the citi
zenship problem of Hawaii will vau
Tho "satisfaction" with which the
lake-farm propaganda accupts the
straightforward polio proclaimed by
Governor Krear. Is much like the
grunt of the fat man, hit below tho
belt but grudgingly admitting that
he's got enough.
Twenty or moro Orientals to one
American farmer Is not to the glory
of Wahlawa, though It be the homo
of a splendid now, Industry. This
condition Is not brought about by the
fact that the American farmer Is in
capable of doing the work.
f!le them the land but tee that
every settler Is a bona lido settler.
This proc.amation by the Governor Is
good enough for any honest Ameri
can. Practically applied. It means
honest settlers; not satisfaction of
tho "land hunger" of claim Jumpers
and fake farmers whoso highest ambi
tion Is to get laud nud cither sell It
or exploit It under a swollen corpora
Hon with cheap labor.
THE CLOSED HOTELS.
Tho decision to close two nt tho
hotels of this city will be received
with general regret.
The resultant Injury to tho town
will como through an exaggeration
of tho facts, just as one case of chol
era did almost as much damage as a
Tho first effort of tho pcoplo should
bo directed to convincing tho trav
eling public that Honolulu still docs
r.ot lack for first-class hotel accom
modation. Then, Instead of dedicating them
selves to a general GIoomy-Gus view
of tho situation, the pcoplo should
got togother with the determination
of securing tho people to fill all tho
hotels, This will bring them back to
the old problem of transportation.
The only way to solvo this problem
is to keep constantly at It. Progress
does not como by waiting for some
h, thing to turn up.
URGE EUROPEAN IMMIGRATION
The Japanese, Foreign Office cable
gram to Consul General Salto, pub
lished in this paper yesterday, un
doubtedly outlines tho arrangement
on which tho American and Japan
ese Governments have decided to set
tle the Immigration difficulties so far
as Hawaii is concerned.
As tho ll u 1 1 o 1 1 n stated In n
previous Issue, there Is nothing in
this arrangement to Justify Hawaii
becoming hysterical or boroly afraid.
Ths restrictions placed on emigrants
by the Japanese Government bring
the nvallnblo class down to n rather
narrow margin, but It docs not by
any means suggest-that the Japanese,

Is the moral effect which this new
regulation will have on tho laborers
who aro now hcio. They will be like
ly to feci Hint they mo tho only labor
which the plantations have, and that
they contiol Iho supply from Japan,
ns the new immigrants on whom tin

whom they can Influence, to stay

these clrctimstunces they uro likely to
feel that they command tho situation,
and strikes nro likely to result. Tho
tml way to counteract this would bo
to mako our liest efforts to have Iho
bill which exempts Hawaii for a period
of six )ears from the restrictions of

Is concct. No, written stntoment has
been asked for and nOno will be.
However, leprcsentntlons were made
by Embassador O' llrlen. which al
most amounted to chniglng Japan
with bad faith In the administration
of tho Regulations governing the em
igration of laborers.
In the exchanges that resulted In

the attitude of the latter to ncnrlv

showing of the failure by Japan to
govern tho problem of toollo Immi

but that certain provincial and pro
fcctural officials hail authority to Is
sue them and did so, the consequence
being Hint the number was greater
than the Government contemplated.
Tho difficulty was accentuated, It
was Bhtivvn, by the fait that while
tho United States and Canada object
ed to Immigration Mexico welcomed
It, being In need of laborers. In this
connection It will bo remembered
that Commissioner of Immigration
Sargent referred to this difficulty In!
