The question of Immigration to
Hawaii will bo settled liy Congress
and not by any Department. Adver
tiser. . This Is a partial truth. Tho De
partment can help materially, as It Is
now doing. Congress, of course. Is
the final authority, and It Is to be re
gretted that there should exist In
these Islands enemies of the Common
Good who are bo misrepresenting the
European-Immigration proposals for
Hawaii as to furnish material that
will be used to Injure the cause of tho
Territory in Congress and supply am
munition for our enemies.
European r, ytRAMTS will;
Wo believe that the process of
Americanizing Hawaii will lie ma
terially aided by tho European Immi
grants. We know It.
The European immigrant has been
the basis of the great progress of tho
mainland that's America and we
see no reason why he should so sud
denly have lost his value when the
proposal Is made to bring him to Ha
waii. He has been a farmer from Mnlno
to California. We don't see why he
should become a cockroach and a ver
micelli bug when he steps foot in the
Territory of Hawaii.
The fact of the matter is that the
European of the Latin raco has al
ready proved himself in the Territory
of Hawaii. You don't And many bet
ter Americans or brighter young men
and women than the young Portu
guese of this Territory. Tho old ones
were of good stock and needed only
opportunity to become home-builders.
The Portuguese-Americans of tho
Islands are a splendid living refuta
tion of the chargo made by the enemy
of European Immigration that a body
politic of such men ns mado and sus
tained the American Republic "can
not bo had from Italy or Spain or
Portugal; It must be drawn from an
English-speaking American base."
Tho high character of the Portu
guese who have come to theso Islands
and the Portuguese who have popu
lated large sections of the mainland
is so well known and so widely rec
ognized that the sneer of the morn
ing paper Is a gratuitous Insult.
Dut what of the Americanizing
These European immigrants which
Hawaii is going after and will cer
tainly get do not In any way Inter
fere with the prospective farmer of
tho blue-blood class. Why, then,
Bhould the European immigrant be
condemned and Insulted?
History has proved it to bo a fact
that It there are ten thousand or ono
hundred thousand European immi
grants employed on the sugar plan
tations of the Territory, the Ameri
can merchant, the American manu
facturer, the Amclcan professional
man, and the American middleman,
and the American mechanic will find
a more profitable and n more hopeful
outlook In the Territory of Hawaii
than he does today. It is 'not truo
that an American middle-class popu
lation can be built up speedily under
such a "farming" proposition as ex
ists, for Instance, at Wahiawa, that
ideal of those sneering at the Euro
pean. If It were true that population
character is not determined by the
hewers of "wood and drawers of wa
ter, the Promotion Committee would
be urging the merchant, tho butcher,
the baker, and the candlestick makor
of the mainland to come to the Isl
ands and set up stores In Fort street
to help Americanize the Islands. Dc
velopment does not move from tho
top to the bottom.
Permanent American Improvement
must begin with the main industry
of every bectlon. If you are hoping to
build up the citizenship you must of
necessity have a fair Bhare of people
In your midst who are available for
citizenship under the law of tho coun
try. Theso truths are so self-ayldent,
PAYABLE IN ADVANCE.

generally the world over, und espe
cially in our own country. Hint the
tenacity with which borne people In
this city cling to the campaign of
slops for tho European immigrant la
fast approaching tho ridiculous.
The one- nnd two-acre homestead
proposition enables tho Immigrant to
obtain a start. He has n headuuar-
tcrs from which he may provo himself
and watch for opportunities. If he
proves u successful cane-planter, ho
and the plantation will sooner or la
ter find It profitable to enter into
planting contracts and the plantation
men will find ft to their profit to give
him n larger homestead. Tho devel
opment will bo townrd the American
plan not away from It, as has been
the case for so many years.
As for the character of tho Itallaps
and the Spaniards, wo know that
what few Spanish Immigrants have
come to the Islands arc desirable peo
ple. Wo know that the Italian has had
a reputation for being a cut-throat,
and, while there are cut-throats
among the people of Italy, the Italian
Immigrant is today ono of tho most
crgerly sought workers in tho agri
cultural sections of tho mainland.
Secretary Garfield la authority for
this, If general report Is not sufficient
to satisfy the doubters and tho sneer-
These people "vivify and fructify"

Tho upshot of it is that the enemts

even his opinion docs not change the

can future is largely wrapped up In
the European Immigrant, and ns he

PROGRAM OF PROGRESS.
If It is a Program of Progress that
is wanted, it Is not hard to find when
dealing with land matters nnd Immi
First (live every American citi
zen equal opportunity to establish a
permanent home on the public lands
of the Territory.
Second l(ay an American founda
tion In the main Industry nnd the di
versified Industries of tho Territory
by securing the European Immigrant
from nny nvaltable source and In as
largo numbers ns possible.
Third Put on steam and gtvo tho
people Attlon in land administration.
This program means Opportunity
for the citizen homesteader nnd Noth
ing for tho land speculator.
Why should the fleet policing of
this town be put on the same basis as
that of a foreign .port?
Why not open the town wide to the
men of the Elect nnd let every lib
erty man know Hint tho town Is his
from 7 a. m. to 7 n. m.?
Why should not tho treatment of
the men In Honolulu be the sntiio as
at every other American poit?
