It is certainly a great difference.
Behind the crimes committed by Japanese,
thore is always a woman. Most
of the criminal cases nre caused by
women affairs, nnd I) out of 10 of tho
criminals in Hawaii, it is said, aro mado
o by women.
Recently the murder eases reported
one after another, have increased, and
tho number of sufferers by tho death
sentence has reached six within six
months, nnd there aro still two more to
be hanged this year.
Examine the evidence against theso
criminals, and we will find the reason
to bo on account of women, with tho
exception of ono or two cases. Whilo
nt the same time, there aro many ngi
tating against tho death penalty as a
Und of barbarous revenge, and not
proper punishment for tho civilized peo
ple, and say it should bo abolished.
Wo have already six men hanged
within a half of tho year, and two
more awaiting for their dreadful day
to come. It is very unpleasant for a
country like Hawaii, known as tho Missionary's

It is not only because, the Japanese
nre so badly dispioportioned, in the
number of men and women, but wo can
say that they are exceedingly so, and
it is why they have more criminal cases
irom such causes.
If wo investigate thoroughly, the
communities in Hawaii, and bring
them before the judges, how many of
them will bo nblo to proo that they

easy to answer that there will bo not a
If shortage of females causes all tho
troubles, we must again call the attention
of tlio Japanese residents as well aB
tho authorites of tho Japanese government
to look into this matter nnd do
something to prevent these crimes.
Tho necessity of importing more
women into Hawaii, is not only to stop
these crimes, but niso to make tho men
and women contented to settlo down
and save money.
Tho question of Japanese leaving
Hawaii, which is now bothering tlio
heads of both tho Hawaiian planters
and our Foreign Department, can be
easily solved by bringing moro women
As a matter of fact, if we inveatigato
what sort of laborers aro leaving for
the Coast, we will quickly find that tho
married ones very seldom leave, 99 out
of 100 of those leaving hero are tho
bachelors, young and strong, and who
have no property to hold thorn back,
and no ono to keep them from going
wherover they wish to.
Although it is our wishes to stop
their leaving the Islnnds, by bettering
their surroundings and paying them
woll, it is also, n good proposition to
bring a sufficient number of women
here, and if possible to hereafter import
mostly tho married men.
There must bo many other reasons
why they bring such n small number of
'women as 1 against 20, but if wo desire,
to solvo this problem, we must also take
this into consideration.
For this reason wo nsk our Government
to consider the interests of Japanese
residents, and if they wish to bo
successful in tho immigration enter
prises, thoy must exhort tho women to
come, to Huwail in order to Bupply the

Presumably, Mr. Mntsubara is still
looking into tho caso of tho Korean,
Y. Marn Young, who claims to havo
been brutally maltreated by Henry
Vida in the police station to get him
to confess guilt of assault with a
weapon. Tho affidavit of Marn Young,
who swtars that Vidn gavo him tho
"water cure" and otherwise
maltreated him, was placed in tho
hands of the Japanese Acting Consul
on Tuesday. So far, the Consulate has
given no official intimation of its conclusions
in tho matter.
In nn interview in ono of tho afternoon
papers yesterday, Mr. Joseph
Lighttoot, of Magoon & Lightfoot,
counsel for Mam Young, said that he
had a witness to tho cruel treatment
of his client outside of tho police department,
but naturally refused to say
who tho witness wn Mr. Lightfoot
has a keeu realization of the fact that
the police mill, although for the pros
ent shut down, is still in working or
der. Speaking to the roporter for the
afternoon paper, Mr. Lightfoot said:
"I may be ablo yet to bring a criminal
action against Vidn and
the District Magistrate, but I
think I will prefer to bring it to the
attention of tho Grand Jury."
"Mr. Lightfoot," tho paper continues,
"said that tho firm had
brought tho matter to tho attention
cf tho Japanese Consul in order that
an initiative might be furnished to
tho Administration, on which it could
net. As it was, tho Governor and the
Attorney General's Department could
hardly bo expected to tako tho matter
up, the polico not boing under their
control, but under tho County's; but
if tho Consul mado a request for an
investigation, thoy would bo compelled
to act, and could do so without subjecting
themselves to an accusation
of butting in for tho purposo of doing
politics. Lightfoot added that ho had
not seen tho Governor or the Attornoy
General about tho matter, but Thnt
tho above was the view which ho himself
took of the situation."
"Tho idea of our bring an action
for damages against Sheriff Brown is
simply absurd," continued Lightfoot,
"Tho Sheriff is not responsible for
tho overt acts which Vida committed
outside his polico authority. Such nn
action would not Ho against Brown
It might against Vida. I can not say
now what wo will do about it."

PORTUGUESE-AMERICANS ARE HIGHLY INDIGNANT.
Editor Advertiser: Time has come when tho supposeM judicious men of a
community havo becomo of the most ungrateful, vaguo and inane instincts. Ono
cannot deviate himself from this fact ufter reading tho letter published in yesterday's
Advertiser, which purports to bo a published copy of a letter written
to Senator George C. Perkins by Judgo Kobinson, a man who has boon highly
commended by tho Portuguese peoplo of Hawaii for his demeanor nnd nttitudo
towards this cosmopolitan community. Ono who has commanded tho respect of
this humble people (Portuguese) and has been highly esteemed for his mild and
manly qualities. This man who has been highly commended and estecmod is
tho very man who atrociously insults every Portuguese-American citizon in this
Territory. It is this man who boldly writos to nn honorablo, member of Congress
and informs him that tho Portuguese are "alien pauper-laborers, social pariahs,
moral lepers and religious fanatics in tho country from which they hail."
Also that thoy aro "reared and fostered in lnnds and under a government to
which tho American form of government is an anomaly," and that they
"possess no intellectuality and but littlo Intelligence, furnish n poor foundation
for nn intelligent Amcrlcnn citizonship during the present generation, nnd otter
but littlo hope for a 'substantial foundation for many generations to come."
Who would expect to read such bold and swooping assertions from a man
who has been almost revered by tho thousands of Portuguese in Hawaii?
Who would expect to hoar that Judgo Robinson has bcon endeavoring to
jeopardize tho welfare of these boautiful islands by forwarding such reproach;
ing, libellous and contemptuous letters to mombcrs of Congress, belittling und
marring tho good name of a peoplo who havo enjoyed In this Territory ns well
lis tho Hovoral States of our adopted country, the very best of reputation, for
tionesty, integrity, industry and law abiding citizens.
Why Mr. Robinson has had tho audacity to make such bold nnd insulting
assertions, I am unnblo to state, and can seo no reason why ho should bo con
sidered justified in doing so. Owing to the recent occurrence in his chnmbers, I
am inclined to think that tho public servant was under the influence of liquor,
and consequently disregarded tho responsibilities ho would assumo to
mar tho reputation of a humble peoplo.
Although nn American citizen, I consider it is my duty, as a son of a poor
Portuguese, to rise in defense of tho peoplo whom Mr. Robinson proposes to term
as unworthy of consideration, and imputes to bo "moral lepers and rollglous
fanatics in the country from which thoy hall." If such imputation Is intentionally
made, I will say that Mr, Robinson should bo condemned l)y this vry
poople, for tho reason that ho maliciously degrades tho whole Portugucfo nation.
As n judgo, Mr. Robinson should refrain from making such impuations and
libellous charges. Ho plainly sIiowb to bo prejudiced against this people, ami
should thereforo bo forced to relinquish tho office ho now holds to somo unproju
It is now that I npprociato tho action taken by tho Governor in reconsidor
Ing nnd withdrawing tho recommendation made to tho President of tho United
States for his Tho Governor undoubtedly recognized that
Robinson would bo the cause of somo future unpleasant evolution.
I shall urgo upon my people to unlto and domand from Robinson un explanation
of this matter.
I can confidently stato that a groat number of tho descendants of all
Portugucso who first came hero nro just ns efficient and competent ns Mr. Robinson
to master tho reins of this Territory, and seo no reason why Robinson
should gunrantoo tho Honorable Georgo C. Perkins that thoy would not make
satisfactory material for tho foundation of American citizonship.
As ono who has known Mr. Robinson during the Inst four years, and a
member of the same secret lodge, I would suggest thnt ho publicly retract every
statement made to mar and degrade tho reputation of tho Portuguese peoplo.

Governor Carter commented on this
letter that it was nn nrgumcut rather
for reservation than against it.
Forester Hosmer stated that ho had
sent n special invitation to Mr. Dodgo
o'f the Bishop Estate to attend tho
meeting, nnd to Mr. Jarcd Smith.
Neither wns, however, on baud. Mr.
Hosmor bald that in conversation ovor
this reservation with Mr. Pratt, tho
Land Commissioner, that gontlcmnn
had brought up tho question of tho
availability of this land for tobacco
culture." Hosmer had sub
sequently gone Into It with Jared
Smith, but that gentleman hud said
that ho was not familiar with tho
tract, but that it was remoto and tlio
landings on that coast wero bad. It
would not bo avnilablo for tobacco for
somo timo to conn. and, when it was
wanted, It could probably bo obtained.
At this point Governor Carter proclaimed
the reserve, ai.d tlio meeting;
In somo general talk following tho
