A temporary, war-time suspension of
the'; Gentlemen ' Agreement, under
which Suspension thos Japanese labor
ers '.who havs gone back to Japan
might fior return sg&in to Hawaii,
'would solve Hawaii 'a labor problem, in
the opinion 0 the Hawaii Horhi, the
Tnpnese daily of which Fred Makino in
principal owner and editor. The Ho
rhi says that these Japanese kamaainaa
wonld gladly return to the Islands if
given the opportunity. There are morn
than, eight thousand such.
E. Faxon Bishop, chairman of the
planters labor committee, says that it
i improbable that the mgar planters
will take an J" part in thin suggestion
of the Hoehi, keeping nut of it in the
aatn m"T '"St 'bey have kept out of
the., plaa to aeenre Chinese im
migration. While the sugar industrv
must aeenre labor ffom somewhere, the
policy of the plantera is not to ask
eonjrress to amend laws or make any
exceptions in general legislation.
Tne Hoehi 's article, in full, is:
.We have repeatedly discussed the
lalior aupply problem of Hawaii, and
our conclusion a to the aoiution of
the problem has alwaya been to induce
. thou Japanese who previoualy have
resided in Hawaii and who have return
ed to their native country to come to
Hawaii again. The Hoehi has been eon
ducting a atudy and investigation of
tho labor aupply problem and haa found
the number of Japanese who returned
to Japan and also found that moat of
these Japanese are desirous of eoming
to Ifawail agafn.
. "Ib the following table we will show
the number of Japanese who have left
Hawaii and the number who came bark
daring a period .of five years and five
months from January, 1P13, to Mav
1918. iThe table does not Include the
number of. womea who have left and
arrived during the same period. The

The number who did not eomr
hack . .............. U
Mora Than Eight Thousand
"Prom the above table, the total
number of Japanese who did not eome
bark to the Territory is 8382. and when
we add to this, figure the number f
departures leas arrivals during June,;
July and August of thla year, the total
figure will be somewhere near IKXXi.
Cannot Now Return
"Now, the question la whether these
nine thousand Japanese do not desire
to come buck to Hawaii any morel
Tt is not that these laborers do not
wish to eome to Hawaii again. In real-
Ity they are wishing to eome back to
Hawaii but they are prevented to do
so bv the rnles of the Japanese foreign
department, which require any person
returning from any foreign Country to
axk for a passport In one and one half p
vears from toe date or nil return 11
he wishes to leave again.
xv
borers have permitted this time limit
imposed bv the foreign department to l
lapse and they are assuming various ,
occupations in Japan, having ao chance j
occupations Hi .lapnn, oavinn; no rnnncr
to get a passport to eome to Hawaii.
This fact is ele.rly proved, by aumer-
oua letters they are'sendlng' to their
friend, in Hawaii a.kinr for the lat '
fer.' help to secure for them eome way I
of getting a paasport. There is ne j
iloubt that the Japanese are tiking Ha
waii.
Labor Needed Now ' -
"In the face of such cirenmwtance
the great war has been started and
when the I'nited States entered into
the great conflict a general ahortae
of labor aris.ng from departures of ,
r.urojicnn iriimitraniv nioi vun.-ri
tion of draftees has come to be felt
throntihout America. Hawaii -has no
escaped from this tendency and now a
Inhor shortage has arrived.
" Kvory person wishing for the de
velopment of Hawaiian industries is
studying this labor problem, and es
pecially the Hawaiian Sugar Planters'
Association, which represents the most
part of the capitalists in Hawaii, is j
eagerly concerned to find a measure to ,
supply this local shortage of labor. I
There are some who propose te Import
I'orto Kicans. Home are Inclined to
pring .viexiran iniHirern, wnu. mwnr
others want to import Chinese eooliea.
Notwithstanding, there waa none who
could see the advisability of Inducing
the retnm of those Japanese who had
been in Hawaii once before, and even
if there was anybody who saw to it he
did not venture to propose it. This
is very much to be regretted.'
Japanese and Chinese Supply
"Mr. Albert Horner, Hawaii repre
sentative of the War Trade Board,
has advised the central government, to
import Chineae laborers Into HawaL
It is said that his ground for this pro
posal is that China haa superfluous
labor anil therefore the importation of
Chinese ia easy, while Japan is feeling
a shortage of labor. At a glance his
reasoning looks plausible, but a closer
examination reveals that hia ground of
argument is very, weak from the start.
Although the mines and factories in
certain districts ' in Japan have felt:
a shortage of labor, and welcomed la
borers from Korea and China, Japan
as a whole does not feel any labor
shortage. The reason why this short- j
age was felt in certain districts is due
to the fact that Japanese laborers do
not like to work in those mines and
factories because the wsges paid s.r
very low while the work to be done is
very severe. When once granted the
right to emigrate, the Japanese labor
ers will certainly prefer, to go to for
eign countries than to remain in home
country. As a practical example, the
number of emigrants to Houth Ameri
ca now reaches a large figure. Thia
shows dearly the true situation.
Ajnerleanlzlng Hawaii
"That the federal government aims
that the Americanization of Hawaii is
fully understood by the people of Ha
waii. Consequently, immigration of
Kuropeans haa been practised and small
farmers have been encouraged. Under
such circumstances, the Hawaiian Hu
gnr Planters' Association which rep
resents the capitalists in Hawaii -fn
not propose to import Oriental labor
ers for it may become criticised as op
posing government policy to Ameri
;mi.e Hawai.
"In reality, however, it is to the
interest of the capitalists to import
Oriental laborers who are diligent and
obedient and who are contented with
eh i' Hp wages. The capitalists in Ha
waii are not unaware of it. They are
fully aware of it but they do not ven
ture to talk of it for thev well know
that such a proposal will bring un
suitable political problem to them.
"When thev import Oriental labor
crs. granting that thev can do so. thev
ill try to import laborers other than
lapRflese, who now romprisoa majority
f the plantation laborers, in order to
livide the'power among various races,
This can he deduced from the attitude
f the planters, who never refer to
the importation of Japanese while
lin"iL' incliiintion to assist any im
nortatinn of Chinese laborers.
"Of course the above is onlv out
4iippoitiou. If this supposition of ours
is mistaken Ve cordiully ask for par
Ion of the planter".

as they possibly could and are endeav
oring to -do their utmost for the full
development of the industry, notwith
standing that they are confronted with
hnrd living caused' by a great advance
hi general .prices. However prices ad
vance and whatsoever be their suffer
inn from bard living, Japanese laborers
will never strike to demand higher
wages under present war exigencies.
"Laborers with such a beautiful,
sacrificing spirit will not be found in
the world outside of the Japanese. In
the face of such faota, the plantera
need not fear . the influence of Jap
anese laborers, especially when impor
tation ia made of fewer than ten thou
sand returned immigrants.
The 'literary Teat
"The immigration law of the I'uit
ed. fltatea put forth that aliens who
come back to the United States after
six months from date of heir depart
ure are to pass an. examination as to
their literary ability. If they fall to an
wcr properly the questions given by the
immigration officials they are refused
entrance th the I'nited States. Al
though there may be some among Jap
anese reimmigrauta who might fail to
pas this examination, the greet maj
ority of them can read and write and
ft may be reckoned that those who
fall .to past the examlaation are Very j
few.
"But, If Porto Eicans or Chinese are
imported, the expense of their import
tation will run to a great amount and
there will be a large percentage of fail
ures to pass the examination. In rase
of Importation of Japanese there la
a possibility of very few such failures
and at the same time the Territory will
not have to spend 'a single cent, while,
011 the other hand, importation of Eu
ropean laborers means expending of
several hundred dollars per head out of
the public fund.
"Past experienie proves that such
immigrants stay on the plantation only
until Jhey snve up enough money to
pay (heir passage to the mainland.
Thus nionev uu spent uselessly and
general public was made to pay for it.
With importation of Japanese, how-
ever, what is necessary to be done is
only to suspend the application of
Root-Takahira Agreement to Hawaii
and Japcneao laborers will arrive in
Hawaii paying their passage with their
own money. In this way importation
of Japanese has a twofold merit. A
to the necessary negotiation with the
Japanese government and 4he manner
r' trot'icing rcimniitrrants to come to
Hawaii, there are courses to be natural
ly taken.
"We hope that Governor McCarthy,
Mr. Horner, the Planters' Association
and the public in ueneral will see the
I correctness of our argument and will
(start a movement to import Japanese
reimmlgrants, for there is no better
possible way to get a supply of labor

Governor McCarthy in taking a gYhnt

A preliminary survey wws made some
time ago, Commissioner Metrger said,
with the .result that so' estimate waa
submitted which waa to' the effect that
it would cent 200,000 or more te ce
tablish a harbor at Kapaa. But Govern
or McCarthy, he said, waa inclined to
the 'opinion that aa adequate harbor
could be created for a niu h less amount.
The Governor thought it would be de
sirable to have a careful survey ef the
harbor-made and an estimate made (i
to what ran be done. . ..
. Mr. Motager suggested that It would
be possible , to Use for this purpose a
part of the $18,000 appropriation made
by the legislature of 1917 for wharves
and harbor on Kauai. :He added that
while the Governor .Was on Kauai,
George Wilcox "had offered to buy bonds
to the extent of $3000 fa order to fur
nish funds for' ihe suggested survey.
The 'Governor' would- recommend that
this offer be accepted, he said.
('onimlsaioner.i Watkias replied that
the matter of a harbor for Kapaa waa

Some Question Whether Govern
' ment Labor Plans Will Ex- , '
. , tenrJ To This Territory
Hawaii business interests hat employ
large numbera of. unskilled labor are
marking time and waiting further in
formation of the meaning, as applied to
these Islands, of the aiewa despatches
which told of plans lsnbe making by
the . government 1 te distribute labor
through the medium- of tststs advisory,
boards. The Governor,, has received no
telegraphic advices and expects such
informstion ss uiny come to him to ar
rive by mail in the due. course of time.
"At the planters' lnbor bureau doubt
was expressed : as to (the forming of
such a fioard here nd the taking over
by the government Of 4the present Bu
reau. Toe belief was tnat the purpose
of the plan is to secuia Jabor and dis
tribute It among the 'war ' industries
nnd that while sugar fs a war essen
tial it is not to be classed as s war
industry.- . On the mainland, also, the
question of seasonal occupations ariaea,
especially In agrieultsre and horticul
ture, , .,
Botl. Seek Workers
Outside of the sugar industry and
the pineapple industry there is no
great demand for unskilled labor it is
held.. There is a considerable conflict
hetweea the sugar and the pineapple
industry and something of a contest
to secure field workers. Ho far as the
canneries go a large part of the labor
is women mrls and boys and some ott
er city labor that would in no event
go to the plantations, hut with field
labor, 4t is different and both indus
tries arc. very short.
Writes To Planters
A It Is learned that Wallace R. Fairing
ton has sought the means to 'extend
his sctiviti" -s the government repre
sentative here. He is s "dollar a year
man", however and Is without funds
te carry on the work. To secure such
fends he wrote to the Flsnters' Asso
ciation setting forth the esse. What
hsd been done in the organisation of
the school boys was good so far aa it
went but was not adequate. There
was room for expansion, if funds were
available. Ha asked from the Planters'
