COHEN'S PAUPER LABOR
Representative Cohen in his re
marks on the immigration appropria
tion repeated tentlmentH fiequenlly
voiced in the moinlng paper.
Cohen said the Importation' of Kit
lopean Immigrants would (111 the Ter
ritorial labor Held with paupers.
Cohen said that the sugar barons
might better spend their $300,000. In
higher wnge3 among tho citizen la
borers of tho Territory.
Tho charge so often repeated in
aiio of our pnpotH that Kutopcan im
migration win nn mo lerriiory wuu
tho sugar plantations, are a living
l dotation of tho libel that Is raised
at regular Intervals against Kuro
pean Immigrants as n class.
The very men who shout this libel
lous try ure the ones who get out on
the street-coiners unit damn Hnwnll
becnuso It Is Orientalized; they want
whlto men on tho plantations. Tho
moment u wny Is opened up to put
whlto .men on the plantations they
turn around nnd dnmn the sugar bar
ons becnuso of the "hnrons' " favor
for such action.
These men know, If they know any
thing, that the reason why Hawaii
ban become Orientalized is on account
of tho Oriental having been employed
' lug numbers. Tho good workmen
of tho Hold have gradually developed
Into good workmen for tho shops
and the mills; nnd they havo stead
ily forged their way ahead.
To change this condition, it Is nil
absolute necessity thnt thcro shall bo
an offset In tho fields. When thcro
Is, nnd not till then, will It bo pos
sible to bilng about tho reforms said
to be desired by the men talking so
loudly of the white men tlicy want
to see In tho Islands, If tho vnclfcr
n torn nro honest, they are defeating
their own ends when they endeavor
I to kill legislation thnt will enablo
I this Territory to enlist Huropcans.
I It is true (hat nil sugar planta
thins nnd nil other lines of business
could spend more money In lmpiov-
Ing the conditions of their laborers.
Tho fuct Is, mote money Is being
spent by Hawaii's ludiistilal lendeis
every year and moio attention is eon-
alqutly glten plans that will mako
plantation l(fo more attractive and
the labor therefore more permanent.

This Is necessary from a business
standpoint ns well ns the high phil-
nnthioplc plane from which Mr. Co
hen nnd his associates operate.
All this lmpiovcmcnt Is going for
waid, slowly perhaps in somo in
stances but none the less surely.
To hend off the Uuropenn Immigra
tion would bring homestendlng of la
bor to n standstill. Not more than
two plantations In the Territory
would have the, price of American
wages If tho main Industry wcro
brought face to face with n labor
The Biignr Intel ests, always conscr-

American ideas of handling labor in

they have ever been. Huropcan Im

and know tho capacity of tho wells.
Putting, tho figures in n popular
