the statements made by , the fjawai
Shinpo in regard to the agents tf'ho
are working in the fields and planta
tions of the Hawaiian islands trying
to. induce laborers to come to .the
mainland, they are more than jborne
out by the testimony of F. M. Bechtel,
United States Commissioner of Im
migration, stationed ata Hawaii, but
just now in San' Francisco enroutie
for Washington. D. C. When Inter
viewed yesterday 'at the California
Hotel Commissioner Bechtel said:

Agencies, the transportation com
panies and the boarding-house keep
ers of the Pacific Coast with he' re
sponsibilty for most of the Japanese
immigra tion to the mainland of Amer
ica. I do not believe that the Japa
nese Government is in sympathy with
the movement. Her policy has always
been to keep her subjects at home,
and I do not believe that it has ma.
terially changed recently. But every
where in the islands one may see
agents of corporations and private
companies hard at work breeding dis
content among the Japanese in the
uTheytell them golden stories of
California The ignorant workmen,
of oourse, are ready to lend an ear.
They think the v will be able to secure
steady employment at the wages
which prevail in California orchards
only during the rush of the fruit-
picking season.' They are told of the
pleasant California climate, and think
that in crossing the Pacific they are
setting out for the Japanese equiva
lent for the happy hunting grouuds.",
, The commissioner was asked to de
scribe the sentiment existing in Ha
waii toward the Japanese. He replied
that the planters looked upon the
brown men with a great deal of favor,
as his was the best help obtainable
in many instances, all labor being
very scare. ... . , j: i .&j e J ' "
"The Jap is very ' Welcome- Irt the
islands," he continued, "and the em
ployers feel very bitterly toward the
men who are trying to 'get' 'them ' to
leave. The Japs work for ' about f 18
a month and live on tie jft to nothing.'"
Recurring to the policy of the Mi
kado's ' Government,' '"Commissioner
Bechtel called attention to the small
number of passports issued to 'Jap
anese bound Erectly for the1 United
States. - .... .: -' " !
"The number who travel directly
from Tokio to San Francisco Is 'dbm'
paratively small,". he said, "but from
'the islands, I bolive as1 many as 800
a month can sometimes be Reckoned
on. This happens without the"con
nivance of Japan. Passports ' are
granted to subjects bound osten
sibly for Honolulu. They stay at
Honolulu for a few monttis, and then
fall into the hands of some proselyting
agent, and continue the voyage
across. They then go to theorchards
That some of them become iden
tified with enterprises outside of
fruit raisin? may be seen by a dis
patch from Denver, which states
that a $30,000 lease upon the mines
of the National Gold Milling Company
has just been cbsed by the Japanese
Gold Mining Company. The pro
perty is located near Central City,
not Tar from the well known Rough
and Ready mine." The Rough and
Ready is itself largely operated by
Asiatic labor, and an extra gang of
Japanese will be shipped there to
day. Next week a $35,000 lease for two
claims in the Bullfrog district, near
Goldfield, Nevada, will be taken by
another Japanese concern, and
another hurry call for coolie labor
will be issued.
Witn the Japanese rushing into
the country from all sides, it is
evident that California orchards will
not long be able to contain a-v large
per cent of the arrivals. Every in
dustry and every state", east and
west, must sooner or later feel the
effect which the introduction of an
undersirable alien clement into the
Oodv politic inevitably produces.
Breakers Ahead Bktn. Amazon.
Honolulu March 16. There are
breakers ahead for the Americen
barken tine Amazon, if the rumors
which are current along the water
front, this morning pr;ve to be. cor
The Amazon arrived at Lo-haina
last month with a load of ei al from
Newcastle, N. S. W. Her crew was
shipped at that foreign port and was
mostly composed of foreigners.
Now it is alleged that in order to
save expenses Captain Aas has i!is-
charged his crew and paid them off
without go ng Ihrough the formality
of notifying either the U. S. Shipping
Commissioner or the immigra tion ofli
cials. These allegations are corrob
orated by the former sailors of the
Amazon who are now in Honolulu
hioking Iji' work.
There is no Deputy U. S. Shipping
Commissioner at Lahaiea but there
is one at Kahu'ui and he has jurisdic
tion over toe shipping of the port of
Lahaina. Natunilly thecost of trans
portation to F;.hu!ui ha? to be borne
by the 'iip and to t-vadc paying this
extra money, it is alleged some cap
tans ar prune to violate the United
Slates lii ws What will be done in
tln case of th Amazon of course re
mains to be seen.
