R00SEVBLT AND IMMIGRANTS
So the European-Immigrant propo
sition, In cither ten thousand or ono
hundred thousand lots, is a fako?
And the European Immigrants
which Hawaii Beeks are the lnzzaronl,
the loafers, ot Europe?
This seems to he the gist of the
proclamation Issued by tho aggrega
tion parading Itself during the stay
of Secretary Garfield as the only
Simon-pure, dycd-ln-the-wool, life
branded RooscYcltlan Americans of
the Territory of Hawaii. Incident
ally these same persons declared that
the California mechanic nt Pearl
Harbor might do the community moro
harm than good.
Uut let us understand about this
fake European-Immigrant business.
Very recent history records that
President Roosevelt took n very act
ive personal Interest in the European
immigrant for Hawaii. '
There Is no disputing the espclal
efforts put forth jy the Federal Ad
ministration to assist Secretary At
kinson when he first went east on
the first European-immigrant mis
sion. We cannot be deceived as to tho
.intentions of the Federal Adminis
tration, when we know so well how
the President, the Secretary ot the
Treasury, and the heads of the bu
reaus did their utmost to make the
trip of Collector Stackable to Europe
There Is no fake about Hawaii
having expanded nearly n quarter of
a million dollars in enlisting nnd
transporting European immigrants la
That Commissioner Frank P. Sar
gent has earnestly advocated tho Eu
ropean Immigrant for Hawaii and
made more than ono visit to tho Isl
ands to assist and promote the cause,
Is no dream.
Administration backing ot Euro
pean immigration has been openly
and actively in evidence all along
the line. Therefore, it it be true
that nothing can be good or right or
Just or American until it bears tho
'"OK" of President Roosevelt and the
executive department ot the Govern
ment, the 100,000-European-imml-grant
proposition is "there with the
As for the Iazzaront end of It, Mr.
Wheeler of California, the newly ap
pointed officer ot the Department of
Commerce and Labor, In a carefully
prepared address before California
business men, laid special stress ou
the fact that the Immigrants coming
from Europe today are, not tho dregs
of the several countries, but tho
young men, the best blood, of the
Now all this may bo n fake, but
we doubt It. More than that, the
record proves it to be very true.
We should have moro confidence In
the good Intentions ot the men who
are blown-tn-the-bottle Americans for
the benefit of Secretary Garfield, It
their record were more clear from
taint, and they did not find it neces
sary to build up their own cause by
attempting to tear down a movement
'that has been endorsed by our people
through their Legislature, tho bus
iness men, the largo interests, the
small interests, 'nnd tho Administra
tion In Washington.
The Territorial Board of Immigra
tion, organized under on act ot the
Hawaiian Legislature, Is the clear
record ot what tho people ot this Ter
ritory think of European immigra
tion. The employment ot Mr. Trenor
is proof ot the determination to make
every effort to get the 100,000 Im
migrants from Europe by one route
The closer one gets at the facts of
'the situation in Hawaii, the more
certainty there is that the people
who, are striving to plume them
selves with all tho virtues of Amer
icanism are making a. mighty poor
fist of It when they 'feel called upon
to attack the European immigrant In

The alleged Americanlzers of Ha

that 100,000 tourists nnd 100,000
European Immigrants for Hawaii call

NEW LAND LAWS

detriment and discouragement of the

Is not altogether a mntter for tho Im
agination, however, we can cite num
erous Instances, attested by such au

secured by emplojecs or others con

comes under its control.
The wide disparity In tho annual
jcntal received pe,r ncro by tho gov

devoted to rice-grow lng Is so glaring,
in view of the lack of disparity In tho
