Tho nbovo paragraphs aro extracts
from a resolution passed last night nt
a meeting ot tho Improvement clubs of
Honolulu, called by tho Central Im
provement Association In tho Senate
Chamber at tho Capitol, for tho pur
poso of considering what action should
be taken relative to the- Japanese
boarding camps being erected In Ma
klki and other rcsldcnco sections of
tho city. i
Tho resolutions wero presented by
C. W. Ashford, vlco-prcsldcnt of tho
Knahuhinnu Improvement Club, who
In tho absence of the president, acted
as spokesman for tho club. Ashforn
went over tho ground thoroughly, ex
plaining the conditions which had led
to the calling of tho meeting, nnd said
that It seemed as though It should be
possible to provide somo legislation
covering tho matter of Japanese camps
in the reslilenco districts If tho pres
ent nrdlnunco should bo dcclurcd In
"Thero has been, unfortunately,
more or less effort to bring tho ques
tion of raco lino this argument." con
cluded Ashford. "Such should not bo
the case. It mny he that tho Japanese
will bo the ones most directly affected
by this proposed legislation preventing
the erection of lodging camps, .hut
that Is only a circumstance, and tho
race matter should bu left out of tho
argument, What wo object (o aro tho
cheap lodging houses, no mnlter by
That 'peoplo they may bo erected."
Ashford then presented his resolu
tion which stated thnt, during tho past
few months, u 'number of "unsightly
nnd probably unsanitary structures de
signed and used ns labor camps" hnvo
been erected In tho residence portions
of the city, thnt thoy hnvo decreased
thu value of tho surrounding property,
hnvo Increased thu lire risks, ami have
In other ways mado tho districts undo
slrablu to live in.
It therefore urged that steps be tak
en to prnihto such legislation as shall
insure Iho abatement of tho alleged
Deputy District Attorney W. I..
Whitney said: "At tho request of the
Goiernor I have been preparing to
meet tho exigencies of this caso from
Iho Territorial standpoint. This is a
difficult matter to handle. Tho Su
premo Court, in tho famous California
laundry cases, has handed down a de
cision thnt tho granting or withhold
ing ot a llccnso cannot ho left In tho
hands nt any man or body ot men,
inch as tho Doard of Supervisors. Tho
Hoard of Supervisors has no control
over tho Territorial Treasurer and
therefore can have nothing to do with
tho granting of licenses."
A. (J, M. Ilnhertson: "I was very
much interested, during tho rending of
tho minutes of tho last meeting, in
hearing of what Dr. Scuddcr said con
cerning tho necessity for wnglng n
campaign of education, Hut I do not
ngroo with Dr. Scuddcr that tho cam
paign of education should bo carried
on among tho Japanese Tho educa
tion should ho undertaken among tho
Anglo-Saxon peoplo of this commun
ity who employ Orientals In trades
whero they como In competition with
a better class of homo makers.
S. Shcha, editor of tho Hawaii Shim-
pn, was called upon to glvo his Ideas
on tho subject. Snld ho: "I do not
question tho necessity for a strong
law in this matter. Hut I bcliovo that
law and education should go hand In
hand. Just ns thero aro white, pcopla
who will lease out their land for the
erection of lodging houses In order to
moko monoy, and lawyers who will try
to pruvo tho law against such lodging
houses unconstitutional, so the're are
J&paneso who will erect lodging
houses for thu purpose of making
"Tho better class of Jnpancso nre
doing nil that they can to prevent the
Japanese lodging houses from going
Into the residence parts of tho city
Thero Is no doubt but thnt n cam
paign should bo carried on among tho
Jiipancse, We would support It, On
the other hand, tho whlto peoplo bhnuld
do a little educating among those of
their own people who halo so little
rlile prhlo that thoy will leano their
land for lodging houso purposes" '
Shoba's talk was received with up-
A careful consideration of the Isthmus
and its people, their attitude toward, the
canal, and a calm discussion of the canal
itself should be of exceptional value.
