Later In tho wook tho commltteo
submitted tho following memorial to
To Iho Honnrablo Kccfe,
Commissioner of Labor,
Washington, I). C.
Sir: In dealing with tho lalnr pro
blem In tho Territory of Hawaii our
minds ore filled with hopelessness
that one meets in Iho expression of n
raro that Is doomed to extinction. This
feeling of hopelessness Is shared by
Iho whlto people who have grown to
like theso beautiful Islands and their
slniplo people, and who reallzo that
soon tboy must !oao the Islnnds or
sink lo tho Urlcntnl standard of liv
ing. Kor Inatanco . tho enrpenter work
ami that of other trades In this City
of Illln hits been doun mostly by ,In
aiicso, because tho while mechanic
could not cninpoto under nny circum
stances with tho Japs In bidding on
contracts. Tlio .lapaneso hnvo been
paying n labor wage unon which n
white incclinnlc. would slano. Tin
.Inp.ineso carpenter Is getting from
$ I. S3 per ilny to $2.30; tho while car
penter getting fioiu JUTift to $;.0n tier
day. Under tho existing .conditions
tho whlto mechanics havo been dilcn
out by tho cheap hut Infinitely loss
elllclont .Japanese. To provo tho truth
of our statement, wo will show that
today on tho plantations, blacksmiths,
cnrpeiitcrs, engineers and oven sugar
boilers owe allegiance to tho Mikado.
Now slnco tho beginning of what Is
virtually tho inllllarv occupation of
tho Islands, tho number of clllion mo
chanlcs is again Increasing, though
few American mechanics are employ
ed, except on fimcrnmont works. Tho
.lapaneso camo In a cheap laborers
and chenp inliorers tboy bave remain
ed who havo gradually drlcn out
ninny citizen lnborers"froni many lines
Now thn .Tipinpso havo been ex
cluded, not by an exclusion net on Iho
part of tho United States, but by pro
hibition on the part -of tho Oovorn
ment of Japan. No morn Jnpaneso
inborers nro coming In. and sonic of
those who wore hero at tho ttmo tlio
prohibition of cmlra'"." from Jntuin
to' Iho United States .wont Into effect
hnvo drifted nwny. nut tho total Jnp
nncse population In Hawaii Is decreas
ing very little. If at nil, births among
tho resident Jnpaneso, being probably
enough lo tnsko up for emigration
and deaths. This has Its political as
well as Us sociological aspect, for
many of the Jnpaneso children born
on American soil nnd therefore ellgl
bio to become, by tho simple net of
election. American clt Irons nro rearh
Ing their majority. Some hnvo nlrondy
become voters nnd tho tlmo Is not fir
distant when tho Leglslnluro of thn
Territory of Hawaii may bo largely
composed of Japanese.,
Only the must prompt action on tlio
put of the Fcdcinl (loeiiimuut, fore
cd to net by aroused public opinion,
can check the evils now fostered In
heso Islands, can slop these Islands
f i oin being made use of ns n brldgo
over which n low class of Id hirers can
Invade tho Pacific coast states ntiil
bring about there tho same conditions
ns now exists In Hawaii.
The fact is that tho sugar corpora
tions of tho Hnwallan Islnnds nro owr
capitalized and that any fair valua
tion shows largo profits. If tho sugar
planters were prohibited from further
importation of Orientals thov could
nnd would get laborers from the Unit
Pd Slntes who would Americanize tho
Islnnds. This might rellovo tho sit
uation, although It might somewhat
reduce the Inrgo profits of the sugir
planters, but would still iiennlt of n
fair profit on legitimate Investments
Therefore It Is hlghlv recommended
bv us tho committee which repreents
the labor organization of the City of
Hllo. that the passage of an net by
Congress applying In the exclusion
of laborers of n low standard of llv
Ing Into those Islands who would nev
er become good Amer'can clllzens as
Ibis Is nliolutoly necessary to pro
tect this Terrltnrv nnd of the main
land. Steps should nlsn be taken to
enforce tho procnt Immigration lawi
In tlio Hnwallan Islnnds.
