MR. KEEFE AND HAWAII'S PROBLEM.
Commissioner General Keefe will please everyone in Ha-
waii if he can invent a system by which this Territory can
(lain the full benefit of the immigration that it solicits from
Europe and Asiatic Russia, and put an end to our spending
money to transport people to the islands, where they remain
y only so long as they can secure the price to proceed to the
' mainland, and there possibly freeze or starve.
Mr. Keefe, judging from his interviews, looks op the sit
uation in Hawaii in much the same manner as the average
intelligent and alert American.
Reared in a section of the country where the Oriental is
more or less a curiosity and the Oriental laborer of the Far
1 East bitterly opposed, any American coming to Hawaii
gains a first impression that these islands have too many
Orientals the numbers are appalling and the Filipino ap
peals to the exacting American mind as merely another
shade of Orientalism, though he is an American Oriental.
Mr. Keefe wants these islands Americanized.
His wishes coincide with the desires of every honest
American in this Territory, and we believe that the majority
I of the Americans here are honest, on this point,
j We also believe that Mr. Keefe coincides with the honest
Americans of Hawaii who want the prosperity of these is
I lands to continue. Who want development along traditional
American lines without purchasing it at the price of a whole-
sale wrecking of industry,
j It isn't the America!: style to smash things in order to
cure them, that is, not the approved American style, not the
1 Taft system.
To accomplish the revolution in our labor population and
do it without "smashing things," furnishes the real problem
i of the situation.
i We shall await with great interest the final conclusions
u of Mr. Keefe because he gives the impression of absolute
sincerity, and when he gels through with his tour of the is
, lands it is certain that ho will appreciate that drastic rcvo
I lution rather than evolution will spread wreckage all along
1 The question is not, What are you going to do about it?
but rather, How should we best go about it?
If Mr. Keefe can invent a scheme of law by which the
immigrants coming to the Territory under the auspices of
the Territorial Board of Immigration shall be subject to the
same restrictions of travel to the mainland, as the Oriental,
he will give the Territory something that would make the
population more permanent and save the immigrant a great
amount of suffering.
4 Unfortunately for Hawaii, its sugar industry has gained
' the reputation of being sort of a slave-driving affair, while
( the dog life of the ditch digger, the miner and the railroad
worker on the mainland is pictured in most brilliant hues.
So the poor devil of an European immiprant who is brought
to Hawaii gets an idea that, while this is better than home,
"over there" is an El Dorado. The result he saves his
K dollars to help pay his fare to what turns out oftentimes to
be purgatory for himself and family.
In so far as Commissioner Keefe criticises the plantation
store that enters into direct and aggressive competition
with the independent trader in the sale of everything from a
sjeam roller to a pound of butter, he is absolutely correct. A
.spirit of live and let live should prevail in the principal in-
dustry of the Territory. In some places it does and others
,, it doesn't, and in still others the plantation store is a bless
' ing because the independent storekeeper could not possibly
.. live and give the residents of the most distant country dis
tricts the advantages gained from the plantation mercantile
As to the rate of wages paid, it is well to remember that
there are few industries subject to the extreme market
'fluctuations of sugar. Last year for instance, sugar prices
were good and everything was swimming; next year the
" price will be low and, more than one property will exist on
m Its ability to make overdrafts. To establish an absolutely
correct schedule, that will cover all contingencies of the
market, and be adapted to what this Territory has to stand
1 in meeting the competition of the larger producers of the
world's supply of raw sugar, is a task that will make any
man famous if he can do it.
Most every American who comes to Honolulu to study
conditions has a desire to correct things by getting an axe
and going at them. Then he thinks it over and usually con
cludes that the axe is all right in its place but can't be used

solving now problems.
