Hawaii and the
The problem of the Japanese in Am
erica is one on which a good deal can
be said on both sides, and one on
which convictions and opinions will
run very strong. It is not to be won
dered that H. W. Kinney's presenta
tion of the matter In a recent number
of the Atlantic meets with a very em
phatic rejoinder of dissent In the same
journal. It is entitled "The False
Pride of Japan" by Senator James D.
Phelan of California, former mayor of
Takes Issue with Kinney
Phelan claims to know something of
the Japanese situation In Hawaii at
first hand from having spent some
time here in 1916, and from a careful
study of the matter through reliable
testimony, documentary and face to
face. He takes emphatic Issue with
Kinney's conclusions on both economic
and racial grounds.
Have Over-run the Territory
He declares that it Is a sad commen
tary on the American occupation of
Hawaii, that the Japanese have been
allowed to over-run a most fertile and
States, and that now the American
productive Territory of the United
outpost, and naval key of the Pacific,
will be required to abandon the demo
cratic form of government and seek
the protection of a commission form
from Washington, as a measure of
self protection. The alternative is
Japanese domination. In 1927, he
declares, the majority of the voting
population of Hawaii will be children
of, Japanese born in the Islands. .The
recorded Hawaiian-Japanese births in
the Territory run to 20,000 already,
and there are hordes more coming,
since the birth-rate is very high. It
is only a question of a few years when
the other voting elements of the pop
ulation will be fairly snowed under,
and When the Japanese vote will con'
trol the situation. Governor, McCarthy
is quoted as testifying, reluctantly,
that much as the people 'of Hawaii
may object to Commission Govern'
ment at present, they would gladly
welcome it as an alternative to Japan
ese domination wit itsh attendant
Japanese Domination or a
This then is the problem that faces
Hawaii, Japanese domination, and
that very speedily, with government
by commission as the alternative.
But Mr. Kinney declares that there
is for Hawaii no such problem, be
cause the Japanese are being so rapid'
ly and thoroughly Americanized. By

THE HAWAII NUMBER OF
Editor Gilbert Grosvenois of the
National Geographic Magazine, has
sent cards to members of the National
Geographic Society in Hawaii that in
order that the printers may have am'
pie time for the difficult task of re
producing satisfactorily the illustra
tions in color for the Hawaiian number
of the National Geographic Magazine,
this number, which had been sched
uled for the April issue, has been
postponed for a little while. The ed
preciates 'the help and courtesies ex
tended to him by the members of the
Society during his recent visit to the
Islands, and assures them that as a
result of their co-operation the Hawai
ian number gives promise of being one
of the most beautiful and important
magazines that the National Geograph
ic Society has issued to its members.
have there been? You can count
them on four fingers!
Wants the Japplest Wife He Can Get
The Japanese don't want to marry
out of their own race. Furthermore,
they don't want to marry out of the
strong current of their own intense
nationalism. A man wants the Jap
piest wife he can get. "Japanese
girls born in Hawaii complain bitterly
that Japanese men send to Japan for
their brides. Rather than marry
girl brought up with the possible taint
of Americanism, the men prefer to
take their brides unseen and unknown
but with the realization that. they will
be purely Japanese, and that they will
be content to occupy the very subordi
nate position of a Japanese wife in her

ica. What American girl would tol
erate the bringing into her household
of concubines, or face the possibility
of her child being sold into slavery at
the instance of the male parent. Yet
such things happen."
They Will Never be Assimilated
This Phelan most emphatically con
tests. The Japanese in Hawaii, h
he declares, insist on remaining Japan
ese to the uttermost. They have
their own schools, their own news
papers, their own religious organiza
tions; and they cling to them with the
utmost tenacity. "These schools, news
papers, and churches have exercised a
most potent influence upon the Japan
ese, and they have always taught,
written, and preached loyalty to Japan
and reverence to her institutions and
culture." All Japanese children at
tend the Japanese language schools,
which are conducted by the Japanese
teachers sent out from Japan. The
Legislature, to be sure, has attempted
to control these schools, but with very
imperfect success. No Legislature
can control the teachings in the Japan
ese Buddhist churches. "It is well
known that the bishops of the Budd
hist churches, or missions, are the perl
sonal representatives of the head
priests of the different sects in Japan.
The Hongwanji Head Priest is a mem
ber of the Japanese royal family, and
wields great power."
The Buddhists Resist Assimilation
The Hongwanji mission in Hawaii
exercises a commanding influence up
on the Japanese there. It would be
puerile to assert that the Hongwanji
mission, or any other Buddhist insti
tution in Hawaii, would teach any
thing but loyalty to Japan.
Inter-Marriage an. Impossible Dream
The assimilation of the Japanese by
intermarriage with other races is of
all things the most distant, illusory,
and next-to-impoBsible dream. They
have not been assimilated thus to any
appreciable extent, and they never

twill be. Out of the 120,000 Japanese
