STKlIvK. In the riirly part nf -May tho Japanese laboiers
on secrnl of the O11I111 L'liintntioiis went out on strike. Labor
ers wore obtained from various Kiureis to take their plueo nnd
the wo.k of the plantations wns continued '.is usuiil. On August
nth the strike was formally deelurcd off, mid from that time on
li.11 .l..pam.s(! hne be 11 gradually letuiiiiiig to tho various
jilnufntioiis wlie'e fliey went formerly at work. ,
I.M.MKiKATlOX.' The ipiestion of immigration lms been
befoie 011r Trustoojj more or less during the whole of Inst enr.
One of the imiuuliatc lesults of tlie labor distiirhauco was to
iai.se them to take in hand very vigoiously the question of ob
taining juippliis of flesh lalior from eery nvailnblu source.
LMissrs. J'iukhaiii and Stevens weie sent, to the Philippines to
lovivo native iuimigr.itioiufrom that point. They have for
w.tidid thus far six or (-even huudied peimle, whu have taken
hold of fieliUwoik in a very satisfactoiy manner. The physi
que of thiso FilfiimTs is not so sturdy as that of the Japanese
nnd'tl.ey me not ns tough workers, but thi-. is compensated to a
t'o.iside.able extent by their industry and trnttnbility. Tliero
me hopes of obtaining a goodly number of the-e pioplo in tho
near future. By reason of the opening up of this immigration,
Jlnwaii will obtain a ery necessary supply of labir, and, apart
fiom this possibly selfish consideration, has not the importunity
been offe.ed us to iissist the home goeiumi ut in Americaniz
ing tho Pilipiilos? Hawaii has been aptly let mod the "Cioss
loads of the Pacific," whore people of all nationalities meet mid
inter into eon.iiieicial and agricultural eompitition. We bring
iiom the Philippines several thousand Inliorors mid their fane
iliis, many of whom will ictiirn later to their country en.bued
with Anie.ienn ideals, having a better knowledge of labor ns
jnacfised away from their homo surioundiugs and among peo
jde of nil nationalities, mid better fitted to unci the new condi
tions width must suiely eoiiio to their own lot.nt.y, which has
ben. for centuries practically ibolated. The Hawaiian Islands
have earned the imputation of conducting their political affairs
in accoidiinee with tl.o methods practised on the mainland. If
the Filipino is his sojourn hole on the diffeiint islands becomes
neipininted with these methods, he, returns to lis eountry-a bet-V
tor man physically mid intellectually, and, we hope, politically.
The Teriitorial Uourd of tiunir;rntioii is iietietyeo-opcrating
in the woik of attracting desirable agrictilluinl hilMiiers to our
hho.es. I Tudor their auspices and with the approval, mid assis
tance of the aiitho.ities at Washington, Commissioner A. J.
Cm.iphtll was despatched to Furope in search of Latin peasants.

immigration 11s we are now receiving in connection with tlmt of
the I'oi tuguee. .Ir. Atkinson, who has just returned, leport
that a large number' of these people can easily be brought he're at
a moderate expense, and that the dilhVtilty i nor to find people
to eoilie, but to discriminate between the large nuniliers who un
ready and mixioiri to coma to Hawaii.
KXPKUOI EXT STATION. The work of die Esperimont
Station has lieen imporfiint as uual, nnd its iurios'S and pro
gress for the past period will be fully reported on during this
meeting. A new feature of its educational propagaildo is tho
publication of a monthly paper to circulate among individuals
or corporations diicctly connected with' this organization. The
objects of tho "KKCOHI)" weie explained in its initial 1111m
lier issued July last, .nnd as I presume you all read tho journal
tho value qf its contents must be well known to ylm."
In connection with the Kperiu.ent Stations affaiis, the t luniks
of this Association ale due to the vnrioiis committees in charge
of their respectivo departments. 1 take this occasion to ex
press the thanks of the Asuieiation to Mr. 1'. i, Swaiizy, Chair
man of the Experiment Station Committee, who has devoted
h much of his time nnd ability to the interests of the in-titte
tiijn during the past enr. All the memliers of the. stuff have
devoted themselves with 70al to the work oeigncd tlieni, mid 1
cannot ollovv this occasion to pass without expressing ttho sense
qf appreciation which the Association owes to .Mr. jluir for
his search, under the most trying circumstances, for a parasite
for the-lxirer. .Mr. Perkins, even while on , vacation, has the.
vital interests of the organization m mind anil nlvvays at the
M'lYiee of the Association when required.
The prnctic.il work of Mr. Eckart, tho aide Director of the
Station, has hcci'.ns usual of the greatest benefit, to Hie -ngar
interests of the Territory, and e-spceially might be mentioned
his study 011 Improve Fertilization during tho year, the results
of which appealed a few months ago in Hullefin 2o. 2ti.
Tiroiigh the consideration's outlined by hiin, based on data ole
taiiiul from exhaustive experimentation, Mr. Eoku'rt fools con
vince il that nil nverngo gain of AWo over present gross yields
enn be effected onioiir plantations without any additional cost.
This is 11 very notable expression of export opinion till an im
porfiint subject and, should have duo in II i.e. ice with managers
in .their future fertilisation practices.
In taking into 'consideration the large yields; pc acre on
I ho different islands add tho uiimlior of men employed in their
production, the public lose sight of the fact that without the
most careful ami scientific analysis of soil, sejeetion nnd com
position of fertiliser, the time and quantity of irrigation, mid
the most careful study of improved methods of manufacture of
sugar in the mill, fields of tlie size mid-quality at present pro
duced would In' impossihlc. Wc would revert to the sixties and
M'vonties, to (he duvs of the opi'ii train and oxtcums, when .'1
toiiH to the acre was considered a phenomenal vield.

JSinco the last A11111111I .Meeting this organisation, has lost by
.death one qf its most prominent and valued inemliers in the
person of the late C. M. Cooke. Our departed friend and
collt'ngnc was largely inteiested, directly ami indiiectly, in the
predominant industry of the Islands and his counsel mid opin
ions as to fl.e handling of sugar affairs wore always listeneel to
with ut'tentimi and high ivspict. This Association and the
community huve sustained a luiivv loss in the nassini: of Mr.
Cooke.. ' . '
In conclusion, Ge-iitlemen, I feel that wc have much to lie
thankful for in the past and good reason to look forvruiel Hope
fully, to the future. In 1111 industry such as ours there are nat
urally many problems coming forward from time to time vvjiich
need careful study and thoiiuht in their solntioii. I.nt .litKniil.
ties have licen oioieome in tho jrast whieh at tlie time looked
almost insurmountable, and in looking rouild the members bf
tho Association gathered in this hull 1 euunot but Miove that
when the time comes we shall succeed in the futine ns wo have
in tho prist by holding together nnd each one doing his Mt in
his appointed place. Let us fake for our motto: "FAIHXKSS
AND EIHMiXKSS," mid us wo give so will it be giwn to 11.
Yours very truly,
