Hoar those figures In niltul, ns au

Yet this strike, worked up by Agl
tutors ami forced upon reputable
Japanese workmen by Thugs, Is bas
ed on the false representation that
nil Japanese, or tho majority of
them arc receiving the I8 a mouth
TRUTH MUST PREVAIL.
The otntement by K D. Tenncy
of the wages earned by the Japanese
laborers on Hwa and Wn'alua plan
tations wipes out n great mass of
falsification with which the Agltn
irs havo been bolstering their causo
Many have believed tho eighteen
dollnr-a-nionth stoiy, exaggerated
nd decorated with every repetition.
Many have thought tho Japanese
ought to get more than eighteen dol
lars n month when the plantations
have been making money under tho
favorable price of sugar. They Old
not stop to nsk the facts. They took
the current cry and let It go at that.
Now the truth comes out.
On Kwn plantation only 291 Jap
anese, of a total of -'.QT.'i employed,
received the much despised $18 per

Thug and gnnibllug element who
don't wnut to. wink' This is entile-
ly piobnble, and tho sin of It all Is
that such a small pinportlou of tho
Inefficient and criminal class should
have cajoled mid tliientencd tho
reputable w oil; men into nulttlug
their profltablo labor and comforta
Mr. Tenncy's reference to the
temples and schools that havo been
furnished at much expenso by tlin
plantations recalls one of tho de
mands shaped presumably under tho
direction of tho Agitators. One
leason given for the demands for an
Impossible wage Is that tho temples
nnd their maintenance Involvo in
creased expenso In the laborers.
When the plantation nuthoiitlos
built theso templis It was dono un
der tho Impression that they were
adding to tho comfort of their em
ployees. This justified tho cost.
Now tho Agitators use It us nn In
dictment against tho Hlnd-hcarted
and thoughtful employer.
Tho more one gets Into tho heart
of the Agitator-Thug strike tho moro
thoroughly convinced must he be
come that the movement Is based on
untruths, deliberate falsehoods mid
more or less artful Invention.
Tho Japanese spirit should assert
itself on tho sldo of common sonso
and honesty. Then It will bo possi
ble to deal with tho subject of re
muneration on Its merits.
SAN FRANCISCO'S GRAFT WAR.
Tho war for tho purification of
San Francisco continues to bo n
war In which the ndvnnce guards of
both sides keep up such a i mining
flro of mud that It Is almost Impossi
ble, to discern the real forces of Jus
tice. Tho Calhoun newspaper,, gave
much sp.un to what they claim Is
pioot that Itudolph Spreckels whllo
on the witness stand admitted being

After lending the testimony, one

One admission Rnrockels did make
which piovei tfint by his present ac
tivity In civic affairs he is making
up for a multitude of past sins of
Indifference. So far ns he can re
member the ballot he cast for Major
Taylor was his first oto. At least
he Is not sure of the other votes. If
there were any.
Spreckels" enemies aim to make
much ot this by charging that his
moro recent enthusiasm is merely n
means to work revenge. i
To all appearances the Calhoun
forces nrc striving to put Spreckels
on trial, and they have been met
by the unexpected testimony of Cal
houn's head detective, who lias been
telling the story of how he bought
up Hums' detectives with Calhoun
or railroad money
Whnt the people want to know Is
whether Mr. Calhoun Is guilty ot
bribery, and If the United Hallways
Is not the worst corrupting agent
Snn Krnnclsco has ever had. They
can hardly bo expected to lie con
vinced that this Is of less Import
