amendment was not intended io introduce
any "novel doctrine with
respect to certaiu descriptions of
service whioli liavo always boon
troatod as exceptional;" that tho
soaraau's business was "exceptional,"
and that there might be "possibly
some others" against whom Mio
same" conclusion would operate.
"Thus," says tho Supremo Court,
"if one should agroe, for a yearly
"wage, to servo another in a particular
capacity during his life, and
never to leave his estate without his
consent, the contract might not bo
enforceable for the want of a legal
remedy, or might be void upon
grounds of public policy, but the
sorvitudo could not bo properly
Tho court declared further that
tho thirteenth ameudment was well
understood at tho time of its .adoption
to apply only to the nogro of
tho South, tho Mexican peon and
tho Chinese cooly;
It will bo seen that according to
tho highest judicial authority involuntary
sorvitudo has been abolished
only in particular casos; in
other words, that contracts to labor
may bo enforced, provided tho "legal
remedy" exists. This legal remedy
consists in the case of tho Hawaiian
laborors, by virtue of the statutes
hero citod, houoei the
system of tho islands is not contrary
to the constitution of tho United
That this system will bo continued
may be taken for grauted. Secretary
Sherman, in his report accompanying
the annexation treaty,
makes the point that it leavos Congress
free to deal with "such
regulations of the contract-labor
systnm as circumstances may
What are tho circumstances?
Lorrin A. Thurston, ono of the
signers of the treaty on behalf of
Hawaii, says in a pamphlet recently
issued by him: "Tho people of Hawaii
as a whole are energetic and industrious.
They are annually producing
and exporting more per
capita than any other nation of the
world. Moreover their chief export,
sugar, is an article which has to
compete in the markets of tho world
on the smallest possible margin of
profit, and can be produced only by
a combination of industry, economy
and keen business ability."
Again Mr. Thurston says: "It
may be claimed that Europeans and
Americans can hold their own in
oompetilion with the Japanese. Tho
reply to this is that experience has
demonstrated there can be, no competition
between Europeans and
Americans on the one Bide and Japanese
or Chinese on the other. The
only possiblo result is tho absolute
substitution of the Asiatic in placo
of the white man, by reason of tho
faot that the Eastern standard of
civilization and living is so much
lower thau the Western that the
Asiatic can exist and prosper on a
margin of profit which means starvation
and destitution to a man -who
attempts to food, clotho and educate
a family in accordance with the
These, then, are tho
which Secretary Sherman
had in mind when he left Congress
free to deal with "suoh especial regulations"
as they might require.
It is acknowledged by a favorable
authority that, the chief product,
sugar, can only bo produced by a
combination pf "industry, oconomy,"
etc., and that, the Asiatic can produce
on a smaller margin of profit
than tho white man, Under these
circumstances Congress would be
bound to do everything favorable to
tho retentipn of a system which
would insure the cheapest production,
and to that end tho contract-labor
system is tho only ono properly
Tho probable results of such a sys
tern upon the United States at large
are so multiform that it is impossible
to deal with thorn in the present
article. It is sufiicient here to say
that the test of a free people is the
political power of the agricultural
class. Whero these ore ondowed
with an uutrauimeled franchise and
tho intelligence to uso it in their
own behalf wo may safely roly upon
a strong and just governmont. Tho
contrary is tho enso where tbe
workers on tho land aro disfranchise!
or ignorant. It is not proposed,
even by tho friends of annexation,
that tho Japs, Chinese, or
ovon tho Portuguese laborors of
Hawaii shall be1 vested with tho
A property qualification is necessary
at present, and probably that
will remain as pno of tho "especial
regulations" suggested by Secretary
Sherman. Accepting as permanent
tho apparent inevitable condition of
cooly labor it follows that tho islands
will continue to bo governed
as now by tho commercialises and
politioians Such a condition suggests
an evil not only in its immediate
effectsbut in its example to
otbor Stalos in which similar industrial
conditions prevail and should
bo avoided at all hazards. S. F, Call,
NOT ON THE TICKET.
A sensation was sprung at tho Central
Committee headquarters yesterday
afternoon by the nnnnuucjment
that there had been an omtssi'.m in
tho ticket filed and consequently tho
entire ticket would bo illegal. After
working everybody up to fever licnt
tho member making this announcement
stated that the omission consisted
in the fniluro to include Rainier
Beer on tho list of candidates for popular
favor. Rainier Beer, however,
does not need to be on any ticket, as
it was long ago voted to bo tho best
beer made on tho coast. Criterion Saloon
Hawaii's Load of Debt.
The Dole government of Hawaii
is young, but it has already increased
the bonded debt from $2,000,000 to
$1,000 000 and the floating debt from
$200,000 te S750,000. That, of course,
is another reason for annexing Hawaii,
for is not a "national debt a national
blessing?" Louisville Courier-Journal,
