A great deal of dissatisfaction has
of late been simmering among thu
local mechanics and contractors, as
well as politicians and others who
nro interested In seeing citizens se
curing employment In preference to
Asiatics. Tho work which Is being
dono on tho now Tcdcral leprosarium
Is tho cause of tlio trouble. It ap
pears that on tho work which has,
and Is being done, so fur, Asiatics
hno been almost cxclusUcly employ
ed, and, further, tho chargo Is mado
that the lumber used Is being sup
riled by a Chinese firm.
Several contractors woro Boon
about tho matter, and nil expressed
themselves In tho strongest terms of
Indignation. They stated that they
had been Informed that about a score,
of men were being employed on tho
work nt present, ns carpenters and
iteamBters, nnd tht thoy wero all
Chinese who had been Imported from
Honolulu for tho purpose, Tho only
citizens employed wero V, Mutch,

certainly not defend the employment
of Asiatics on grounds of economy,
as tho Hawallans nro far better me
chanics than tho Chinese. Thoy do
more work In a day than the Chinese,
and they do far bettor work nt that.
"I also hear that tho lumber used
Is being supplied by thn City Mill
Company, a Chlncso Arm. I think
that It would he a good thing for the.
