COMMISSIONER KEEFE'S REPORT.
Labor Commissioner Keefe's report on conditions in Ha
waii is published exclusively by the Bulletin and speaks
It is a significant fact that the portion of Mr. Keefe's re
port containing his conclusions on the Filipino immigration
is not given to the public at the present time. Very likely
his opinions on this subject did not coincide with those of
By this token, it is safe to assume that the Administration
docs concur in what Commissioner Keefe says of home
steading, plantation labor, plantation stores, European im
migration, and other phases of the labor and industrial sit
' nation in these islands.
It seems hardly necessary to urge the readers of the
B u 1 1 e t i n to peruse every word of Mr. Keefe's report. We
would especially commend this report however to the
searching attention of the gentlemen who have been sitting
behind closed doors to pass upon the advisabijity of getting
a "few Chinese" into Hawaii under some dizzy and hazy
scheme of special legislation.
Commissioner Keefe Is unequivocal in his support of Eu
ropean immigration. Therefore let us go forward in the
same way to more thoroughly Americanize Hawaii.
SPEED THE SCHOOL BILL
The House made it unanimous, almost.
Passage of the School bill on third reading in the House
of Representatives this morning with an amendment that
may or may not block it in the Senate or in conference com
mittee, advances this important measure a long step to
ward its final appearance on the table of the Governor,
where it is at least certain of being free from complication
with trades made overnight on another bill.
The progress of this measure through the House of Rep
resentatives has developed the fact that no one dares to
come out in an open assault on the measure but there is and
has been a steady force striving to cut down the amount of
money that is required to place the public schools of these
islands on a proper basis. This was evidenced in the con
test on the tax bill Monday afternoon and was again brought
out in the vote on the Keliinoi amendment this forenoon.
The amendment made in the House gives the enemies jf
the bill another chance to take a fling at it in the Senate
and possibly tie the measure up in a deadlock between the
two houses until the follies of the tax bill can be perpetuat
ed. This is possible but under ordinary circumstances
would seem improbable.
- It is to be remembered that a member who voted for the
Keliinoi amendment is one who twelve hours before stated
that the school bill would be killed. How he can do it by
means of such a change in the measure is rather difficult to
determine, but it is to be hoped that the enemies of the bill
will not find enough supporters in the Senate to allow of a
blockade in conference, which is now the last hope of the
opponents who would use the fate of the school children
' for trading purposes.
THE KELIINOI AMENDMENT.
The Keliinoi amendment to the School bill accomplished
nothing but to line up members of the House of Represen
tative's who might like to vote against the measure as a
Thr rntiuction of the basis on which the school teachers
i shall be employed .merely operates to hinder the Department
of Public Instruction in tnc Development of plans tor tnc
extension of practical education.
Wnen the bill goes to the Senate ,the only question to de
cide provided this bill is not again used for trading pur
poses on the tax bill is whether to let the amendment re
main and .wait another two years for the people of these
Islands to agan declare themselves in unequivocal terms
that the children of Hawaii shall not only have first claim
unon the revenues or me lerntory nut aiso uruiv mt
