That the Porto Ricans who came
here on the Rio came of their own
volition seems apparent but that in
no wise lessens the obpectionable man
ner in wnicn tney were induced to
come here through deception and false
promises. If the entire party were
free and willing emigrants why was It
necessary to keep an armed guard
about their train during the two days
at Sanderson, Texas, and at other
points en Toute. And too why was it
necessary to put them aboard n tug at
Port Costa, forty miles from San Francisco,
and take them to the Rio after
that vessel haa left her wharf and
pulled into the stream.
Grant for the sake of argument that
it was because evil designing persons
enemies of the sugar planters, if you
will would try to induce them to de
sert, and that many. If not all, would
desert that in itself is a sufficient indictment
against the class of laborers
brought here from Porto Rico.
The addition to Hawaii's population
of these illiterate and degraded people
is a menace to the future of the
Territory- Hawaii wants thousands o
settlers to come here and come as
quickly ns possible, but with the mixed
races already here what she needs
now is intelligent American laborers.
The Porto Ricans are as undesirable
a class ns could be scraped up any
where on the face oi the earth and yet
they are among the best from that
...and. Deing of mixed Indian, Negro
nnd Spanish blood they constitute
about the worst element of society
ever introduced to these Islands, and
God knows some pretty bad specimens
were introduced under the old contract
labor system. That these people were
deliberately deceived no man who has
looked into their coming nere and the
manner in which they were guarded
while en route can for one moment
Even after their arrival In Honolulu
their Importers seemed still afraid that
they might get away and they were
taxen from the Rio directly to the
steamer Lehua, not being allowed to
even set foot upon one of the wharfs
of this city for fear that some one of
the number, after brenthing God's pure
air away from the restro t of the
steamship nnd of their rds and
keepers, raisin, think they mid like
to remain here for a few rs.
The same haste was shox - .n taking
away to other Islands the rien brought
here on the steamer Warrlmoo. Statements
of one of the three merlcans
in this latter party show hat they
were given every consider .ton while
on the train, but as soon as tley were
at sea and could secure no redress
they were treated as though they wee
dogs. Complaints made to the man in
charge of the party were given no consideration.
That deceit was practiced
with these emigrants is also apparent.
They were given to understand, if not
told directly, that they were to come
.o Hawaii to work on the same island
Honolulu is on. A life of almost ideal
conditions was pictured to them, but
when they arrived the only glimpse
of the city given was such as could
be obtained from the deck of a 6hip
they too not being allowed to even
step foot on a wharf
While contract labor has been abolished
the statement of Grace shows
how easily this statute is avoided by
compelling the men to sign notes or
contracts for passage money which
practically bind them for three years
to the plantation to which they art
The Republican recognizes as well
ns anyone else that sugar is King in
Hawaii and that the sugar interests
are paramount to all others, but it also
realizes that the sugar industry can
be carried on honestly and without de-'
ceptlon and deceit as well as other
legitimate lines of business. It realizes
that additional labor for the plan
tations is badly needed and it also realizes
and knows that this labor can bo
secured In the United States by honest
methods and the payment of living;
wages for first-class American laborers;
Intelligent and educated white
Men. Conducting plantations upon the
Absentee landlord plan of making surfs
of laborers will hasten the ruin of the
sugar industry of Hawaii and every
other businesslB the Islands. Let m
e koMct witk our feUowaea
urith ourselves gentlemen. At this
Christmas time resolve to enter upon
a new manner of conducting easiness
and relegate deception and deceit to
the past along other obsolete
things in Hawaii.
SECRETARY HAY REBUKED.
Thanks to the sterling Americanism
of the members of the United States
Senate the action of Secretary of State
Hay in his willingness to give England
Joint control with the United States In
a canal across the Isthmnsbnilt by the
United States has been defeated. The
Clayton-Bulwer treaty was universally
condemned almost from the day of its
ratification. It provided that neither
nation should build a canal across the
isthmus without the consent c the
other This treaty was practically an
abandonment of the Monroe doctrine
and has been denounced by the people
of America regardless of party, ever
since its ratification by the Senate.
Mr. Blaine, and previous to his time
as Secretary of State, Mr.
had held that England herself, by
her acts in the Mosquito territory and
in British Honduras, had abrogated
the Clayton-Bulwer treaty.
But in the treaty
Mr. Hay proposed to go further than
even the weak and vacilating Clayton
had gone in his truckling to England.
The Senate would have none of It and
has given Mr. Hay and England to understand
that the United States proposes
to build the Nicaragua canal
and that she proposes also to control
Mr. H. H. Kohlsaat, editor of the
Chicago Times Herald, has just made
public a private letter from the late
Senator Davis written in March last
regarding his proposed amendment to
the treaty which the Senate has adopted
with modifications which go farther
than Mr. Davll himself proposed,
though no farther than he would have
supported, and no farther than what
the American people endorse and approve.
Senator Davis in his letter
"The amendment has this especial
advantage that it was phrased as nearly
as possible in the language of the
tenth article of the treaty of Constantinople.
Therefore this amendment,
so adjusted to the treaty of Constantinople
puts the British Government in
the position where it must either accept
the principle of the treaty of
Constantinople, which Great Britain
herself proposed, or flatly say that the
lines of that treaty which are of advantage
to Great Britain shall stand
In our treaty and that the lines of that
treaty which are to our advantage and
may be disadvantageous to Great
Britain shall be obliterated from our
treaty. If the committee had framed
their amendment on different lines,
or in different terms. Great Britain
could have said that we had departed
from the treaty of Constantinople and
introduced new principles. She would
not have been correct in saying so,
but she would have said it My own
object was to hold her as closely as
possible to her own precedent. The
possessions of the United States, as to
Texas, are less distant and, as to California,
not much further distant, from
the ports of access of the Nicaragua
canal than are the possessions cf
Turkey at the lower end of the Red
Sea from the port of egress from the
Suez canal. The idea that the two
situations are not identical in principle,
so far as the necessity of defense
is concerned, is simply preposterous.
"Article 16 of the treaty of Constantinople
binds the parties to ask
other States which have not signed
it to accede to it This the United
States could, not do, because to do o
would be a violation of its policy as to
European complications, steadily adhered
to since Washington's farewell
address. Article S and possibly some
other articles in the treaty of Constantinople,
binds the signatory powers
to watch over the execution of t"
treaty. To do this would bring the
United States within the concert of
Europe as an a'ctive, participating and
possibly belligerent power. That
which we cannot do as to Europe the
treaty invites the
European powers to do as to the western
hemisphere, introducing them as
parties in control under certain contingencies
and all in violation of the
While not intended as a criticism
the treaty no more explicit
criticism of that treaty, pointing
out so succinctly its weak points has
been uttered by any one, as Mr. Davis
set forth in this letter. After reading
it it is not to be wondered at that the
Times-Herald has so bitterly fought
the treaty and called the action of the
administration in asking for its confirmation,
a pusilanlmous giving away
of American rights to England.
It is essential to the welfare of the
United States that the Nicaragua
Canal be constructed and it is equally
necessary that it be controlled by the
United States the same as the inland
waters of the country are controlled.
It is to be hoped for the good of Mr.
McKinleys administration that the
vote of the Senate will result in the
retirement of Mr. Hay from public lift?.
The Territorial administration seem
determined to have a test of strength
with the Department of Justice of the
United States. As Punch said to those
about to get married, gentlemen, dont
