Hot Protest in Open Letter
to Argonaut
Former Governor Georse R. Carter
has lodged with the Immigration de
partment at San Frahciuco a red-hot
protest aKt the treatment of Wil
li elmlua pawMnjreri by a Han Francis
co Immigration official.
His letter of protest was tent as an
open letter to the San Francisco Argo
naut and be has also sent a copy to
the Honolulu Chamber of Commerce.
Here Is the letter:
-San Francisco, Oct. 4. 1917.
-An Open Letter to the Official in
charge of the Immigration Depart
ment, Baa Francisco, California.
-Dear Sir:
If I knew your name I would, ot
course, use It Even without it, permit,
me to advise you that I was a passen
ger on the steamer WJlnelmlna, voy
age 99, from Honolulu to this great
gateway of commerce. While In the
harbor, passing the immigration of
ficials In the salon. I heard one say,
'I want you to understand that this
la San Francisco not Hawaii.' Hia
voice sounded so like a little man
with big authority that I stopped to
observe the scene.
"There were only three culprits left
standing before this wise judge the
woman so gruffly addressed seemed
perplexedshe had with her iour
clean, well dressed boys. It appears
that she5 was a Portuguese whose hus
band waeC'pad and sh a had alone
brought :jSjhese fine looking boy.
The second was a Japanese youth
with a permit to land in his posse
slon. Issued by your colleague, from
your department of this Government,
In Honolulu. The third was a para
lyzed seaman of the very steamer we
were on, who, as the purser explained,
was stricken while, at Honolulu, and
under the law the ship could not go
to sea; without Its quota of able sea
men, so this man was discharged
there and another engaged, and the
Marine Hospital service had taken
care of him and was sending hjm back
to the Hospital here all three ' of
these were held up guilty of trying to
enter this great city. Ycur subordi
nate, Instead of meeting one case at a
time, vibrated between them like a
lost dbg. The seaman was then ask
ed to explain his case, 'Were you ever
sick before?' (Who has not been
sick?) He told his story with sim
plicity, still standing supported by a
cane and the 'Judge' left him stand
ing there and back he jumped to the
woman's case. , 'Where were your
boys born? 'In Honolulu came the
answer. And after, consultation your
representative appeared to conclude
that he would eventually send the
woman to the island, she being an
illiterate. v The boys he said he could
do nothing with and they would prob
ably have to be set free in the 4ity.
The woman's face was a studywhat
could she. do thus separated? 'And
where would her hoys go? Leaving
her to ponder, the official' turned to
the Japauese? 'When did you arrive in
Hawaii?, 'AnserFlve years ago
Did yon liave "apfcaspoit?' 'Yet
Where is it?V'Jn' my trunk " 'Get
it. And the youth disappeared. Then
'turning .to the seaman, - more ; wise
questions are asked and finally it was
Uggested; Us the man tottered, that
he had better sit down. ,
"The nigbtbetore on that very car
pet 65 passengers had raised $1165.50
for the American Red Cross , War
Fund, ar standing there, I seenied to
be bewi:- Was this, after all, an
American ship? -Had we sailed from
an American port? Were we under
the American ' flag? And were we
American passengers? While thinking
thus, back came the Japanese with
his passport. After your official had
examined It, with hesitation he finally
asked the student to translate that
portion printed In Japanese, which is
also reproduced in English and this he
did quite readily. . ; .'
"May. I : be pardoned for my ; Intru
sion, but at this point I could not help
saying to your appointee that Hawaii
was "a part of the United States of
America and . our constitution pror
vided that there can; be nothing to
prevent the free passage of people
from one portion to another of, our
great , Union, nor can there be - any
restriction of commerce and that per
haps a damage suit in the courts
would be necessary before the of
ficials realized that we had a consti
tution. Still amazed, I left them, join
ing my family , already .recognizing
friends on the wharf. V Now I want to
ask you if this Is the treatment ac
corded to passengers on steamers en
tering .this port from Puget Sound or
Portland?--:;;v v--.'V -
'Permit toe to state that no matter
what reception you accord us, we Ha
wMians . are not ultlanders, and by

our age, date of birth and where

Those members of the Women's

The emperor is quite a busy man
these days. This morning he received
Mr. Roland S. Morris, the new T'nlted
States ambassador, at the imperial
palace. The presentation by Ambas
sador Morris of hia credentials was
marked by solemn court ceremonies.

two weeks.
During the stay In Kyoto the em

The customary naval review in
honor of the emperor's birthday anni

From Papaaloa to Kukuihaeie. tne
scene is a painful one. The first
named plantation does not look In
such very bad condition. The cane is
burned somewhat but there is plenty

but dead and done. Hundreds of
acres of cane have been destroyed
and not a pound of sugar will - come
next year from those acres- There Is
no possibility of the can bein re

This refers to many sections of the
plantations along the line. The makai
fields are all right becaus of the irri
gation but the mauka cane is pau.
The sight Is a very painful one even
to outsders. As to what the managers,
stockholders and employes of the
plantations think, the least said the
better. It is heartbreaking and that
is all there is to it.
Hamakua has suffered the most
severe drought since cane was first
Planted out that way and the loss will
be very heavy. Cane that was intend
ed for next year's crop is being har
vested now. That will save something
a tremendous amount of the cane
is nearly ready to cut and this is
deao dying.
