Tlie Multiplication of
Washington, July 1.-In addition
to the negro problem in the South and
the Moro problem in the Philippinen
the United States will soon have a
Japanese problem in the Hawaiian Is
According to a report on labor con
ditions in the Hawaiian Islands, just
made by Commissioner pf Labor Car
roll D. Wright, the Japanese clement
in the islands is multiplying so rapid
ly that in a few years, comparatively
speaking, thc Hawaiian-born Japa
nese-Amcrican citizens of the islands
will outnumber the citizens of other
races and will be able to control the
politics of thc territory.
Thc present population of the is
lands is slightly over 150,000 and a
majority of the inhabitants arc Asia
tics. In 1900 thc census showed that
89.(58 per cent of the inhabitants were
Japanese, 24.43 per cent were Hawaii
ans and persons with an admixture of
Hawaiian blood, 18.72 per cent wore
Caucasians and Hi.78 per cent were
Chinese. As the death rate among
the Hawaiians is in excess of the birth
rate, tho people of that race are grad
ually dying out. Tho application of
the Chinese exclusion law to Hawaii
is resulting in a decrease in the num
ber of Chinese in the islands. The
Caucasipns and the Japanese are in
creasing, but the increase of tno Japa
nese population is going on at a much
more rapid rate than that of the Cau
casus. The fundamental reason for
thia ia that the sugar planters of the
islands demanda large supply of cheap
labor. It is almost impossible to get
white American workmen to do the
work on sugar plantations ut any
wages. The experiments of introduc
ing negro laborers from the Southern
States of the United States and work
men from thc island of Porto Rico
were practically failures.
THE PORTO RICANS NO GOOD.
In all about five thousand Porto
Ricans were oarriod to the Hawaiian
Islands. They were very poor speci
mens physically. Many of thom were
taken to the hospitals almost as soon
as they arrived and tho death rate
among them was large. They did not
know how to take oare of themselves
and had to be taught how to live in
their new surroundings. They wore
morally upset by their long travels
and changed environment, and found
it difficult to acquire the new habits
of life necessary to their new condi
tions. So a considerable number bo
came strollers and vagabonds, and,
whenever possible, flocked into the
town?. There was much oomplaint
about them by tho people io Hawaii,
?fi they were not personally friendly,
and were also unpopular ou account of
tho number of criminals who accompa
nied them. Before their arrival doors
and windows of private residences in
the islands wero seldom locked and
property could bo left about uncared
for with perfect security. Despite
their small number relative to the en
tire population, they have contributed
a large proportion to the inmates of
the prisons in the islands.
NEGROES EVEN WORSE.
Comparatively few Southern" ne
groes have been taken to the islands,
lt was found that the men would not
stay on the plantations, but drifted
into the towns, where, they found em
ployment. There were also strong so
cial reasons for not taking negroes to
the islands. The color line between
the Hawaiians and the Caucasians has
been very loosely drawn. Tho schools,
churches and sooiety of Hawaii are
open to both alike, and many of the
leuding American and European resi
dents have intermarried with the na- j
tives, who aro not racially allied with
the negro; though approaching him in
color. -i^?uS? for political and social

?og into the islands in constantly in
creasing numbers. The Japanese bad
at first the same tendency that the
Chinese hare shown to remain for a
few years and then return to -Jaran
with the money that they hove saved.
Of late years, however, they exhibit
more and more a tendency to become
pcruianeut settlers in thc islands.
They arc also bringing over a larger
proportion of Japanese women, and
their children are attending the Ha
waiian schools along with thc white
and Hawaiian children, and are thus
being brought up amid .surroundings
and with ideas that would make thom
practically aliens if they should return
JOHNNIE ANO JAP COMPARED.
The Japanese make fairly good plan
tation laborers, though ?orne of tho
planters would preTer Chinese. Thc
Chinaman in usually thc more steady
and reliable, but thc less energetic la
borer of the two, and is preferred for
irrigation and cane cutting. The Jap
had greater physical strength, and is
the better man for leading or for gen
eral roustabout work in tho mill. Ile
is more cleanly about his person and
tidy about his surroundings, and
adopts more readily all tho superficial
tokens of Caucasian civilization. Ho
wears European clothing, carries a
watch and seeks mose eagerly for va
riety in life. Ho is constantly visit
ing new places and trying his hand at
new trades. He represents the radi
cal, tho Chinaman tho conservative
side of Oriental character. His vices
are more Occidental than those of the
Chinese. He docs not fail a victim
to opium or the unnatural practices cf
tho latter, but is fond of intoxicants.
The Jap makes more demands upon a
plantation manager in the way of quar
ters and general conveniences for liv
ing than doea tho Chinaman. Many
of them have families and require in
dividual apartments. They prefer to
board in small companies, upon a cot
tage system, while tho Chinese like to
herd together in large barracks. The
one thing that the Japanese insist
upon abovo everything else is plenty
of water for their daily baths, and
there have boen many clashes between
them and tho Porto Ricana employed
on the same plantations largely be
cause the Japs object to the disregard
for oloaoliness shown by the Porto
R'uans, and because the Japanese, on
the other hand, have a native disre
gard for proprieties of costume and
occasionally walk about their camps in
an absence of attire that way charac
teristic of Adam and Eve in the Gar
den of Eden.
FEAR OF JAPANESE CONTROL.
In concluding his report Mr. Wright
says: "At present a laissez faire pol
icy is being pursued, which-so far as
present tendencies indicate-will re
sult in a few years in making the is
lands practically Japaneso. Those
people aro settling in the country with
their families to a greater extent than
formerly and, though hitherto trans
ient, show a tendency to become a
permanent population. In some re
spects t ey might make desirable citi
ze***, as they raadily adopt Occidental
habits, but they do not amalgamate
with Caucasians, and are intensely
alien in their sympathies, religion and
"There is no doubt of tho rapid in
crease of thc Japanese population
through births. It is yot too early to
determine what tho attitude of these
Hawaiian-born Japanese will be to
ward their birthplaco in caso many of
then^rematn permanently in the is
lands, but this is a subject that prom
ises complications in inc futuro in the
matter of citizenship, unless some sys
tem of repistry is adopted sufficiently
exact to distinguish them from immi
grant. Japauese. A still more embar
rassing situation would bo created
shouhi this Oriental population ulti
mately get control of tho looal govern
ment, by moans of institutions estab
lishedby Americans, and employ their
racial ?solidarity to maintain thorn
selves in power in the territory."

Cigar* have saved men's lives. M.
Guizot, the great Kreuch historias,
owes hi? life to a cigar, says the Chi
cago Tribune. One day be was walk
ing in ooe of the gardens of Paris,
when be noticed ?hst he was being fol
lowed by a shabbily dressed man, who
evidently had some purpose in view
which included the historian.
M. Guizot finally sat down on a
bench, and his unwelcome follower
Bested himself there also, all the time
watching him with a threatening air
which might have proved disconcert
ing .'o a man troubled with nerves.
The historian was not troubled. He
pulled a cigar out of his pocket ?nd
At the action the strange man arose
and muttered that be had been mis
taken, as the scoundrel he meant to
kill did not smoke. The historian
was considerably puzzled by this oc
currence until he learned several days
afterward that a mau answering the
description of the fellow who had fol
lowed hin: had been arrested for a
murderous assault on a public official.
He had mistaken M. Guizot for this
official, and no doubt would have
mado thc assault on him had he not
pulled out tho cigar.
The late King Humbert, of Italy,
in his youth was a habitual smoker.
Ooo day while driving through tho
streets of Naples he happooed to drop
a cigar which he had just lighted.
He noticed that a singularly dejected
looking citizen darted forward and
grabbed the cigar from thc street.
He thought uothing moro of the mat
ter, uutil some months later, when it
was recalled to bis memory upon re
ceipt of an unsigned letter relating
thal thc writer had been on the verge
of committing suicide when he bad
chanced to pick up the cigar whicb
the king had dropped.
The smoking of this, he said, bat
changed the moodiness of his thought!
for the time being, and the impulse t<
suicide had been overcome. He add
ed that he was happy to say that thi
troubles which had threatens to over
whelm him then had left him. Ii
that case the king's cigar saved no
himself but the other mao.
Then there is the story of how Sig
nor Mario, the famous tenor, savei
bis life with a cigar. The singer ha
ju9t Btartcd on a long railroad joui
ney when the man with whom ho wa
looked in the compartment drew
truculent looking knife from his pools
et and announced that he inteuded t
out his throat. The singer recognise
that he had to deal with a crazy mac
and he saw that coolness alone coul
save him, and it was highly probabl
that a Btruggle would end in tho mt
niac accomplishing his purpose.
"Before you begin wouldn't you lik
to smoke a good cigar?" he asked c
his murderous companion.
"That wouldn't be a bad idea," Bai
:he man, laying aside his knife. "M
nerves will be steadier."
Mario gave him the biggest oigar h
had ic bi? case, and when the crazy ma
had smoked it, offered him an o thc
big one. The man continued smokit
the singer's cigars and luokily for tl
Italian, he had a good supply. Tl
man was still smoking when the trai
stopped at tho next station and Mari

One of the bugbears of old time
people is night air, and there is little
exaggeration io saying t.iat the super
stition against night air has killed
more people than thc freo circulation
of it has injured. There is abund
ance of proof that night air ig inju
rious to no one. On tho . contrary,
people who sleep outdoors under the
mero protection of a tent are the
healthiest of all people, and the prac
tice has largely gained in popularity
of late years under wider knowledge of
hygiene for people in delicate health
to go in camping parties nod breathe
tho balsam of the night air. The vig
or gained from a few weeks of such au
outing is a marked proof that the old
prejudice against night air is as fool

years, escaped from the Knox County
jail this afternoon at 5 o'olock. While
his guard's baek was turned Logan
threw a wire over his head and lassoed

his cage. Having ono entire floor of
the jail to himself, Logan nest secured
two pistols placed in the corridor of
the jail for use by officers if needed.
When Jailor Bell appeared in an

passed out a bottle, saying he wanted
some medioine. As tho jailer put out
his hand Logan covered him with a
pistol, forced him to unlook the door
and take Mm to tho basement of the
jail. He then forced Bell to take
him to the sheriff's stable and saddle
the sheriff's horso. Thia done, Logan
mounted and rode away in the direc

Made an Idiot by Lightning.
During the heavy thunderstorm \o

afternoon a bolt of lightning struck
tho dairy of Mr. L. C. Chappell near
his house six miles south of tho etty.
A negro farm hand was struck and
stunned aud has sincebeou completely

lt was in tho early af tor noon and
Mr. Chappell was sitting at the dinner
table. The negro had just brought ip
a pan of milk and was going back to
the dairy when lightning struck au
immense elm in tho yard, splh 'oriur
the tree and demolishing the dairy
nearby. The negro was some distance
away but was hurled to the ground as if
hs had beau shot out of a catapult.
Mr. Chappell himself was stunned to
such an extent that he could not
leave the table for - several minutes.
As soon as he oould do so he made his
way to where the negro was lying and
brought him into the house. After a
