PRESIDENT McKlNLEY DOES NOT
REFER TO HAWAII.
Still liellcves in Reciprocity Though
nnd That Is Good News for This
Country Points of the Address.
In his inaugural address President
McKinley did not refer to the Hawaii
an question. He took occasion to de
fine his situation indirectly on the is
sue 1)' advocating the reciprocity
The address was quite exhaustive,
filling up five columns of space. In
touching upon the financial question
lie says: "We must be both sure we
are right and make haste slowly." He
urges economy in every branch of the
Government nt nil times, and especial
ly during the present period of busi
ness depression and distress among
Here nrc other extracts from the
"The Government should not be per
mitted to run behind or increase its
debts in times like the present. The
best way for the Government to main-,
tain-the credit is to pay as it goes -not
resorting to loans, but by keeping
out of debt through an adequate in
come secured by a system of taxation,
external or -internal, or both."
"Lynchings must not be tolerated
and the courts must execute the pen
alties of the law."
"Immunity should be granted to
none who violate the laws, whether
individuals, corporations or communi
ties, and as the Constitution imposes
upon the President the duty of both
its own execution and the statutes en
acted in pursuance of its provisions,
I shall endeavor to carry them into
effect. Tlie declaration of the party
now restored to power has been in the
past opposed to all combination of
capital organized in trusts or other
wise to control arbitrarily the condi
tion of trade among our citizens, and
it res pupporteil sucli legislation o&J.
well as to prevent the execution of all
schemes to oppress the people by mi
due charges on their supplies or by
unjust rates for the transportation uf
their products to mnkc it. This put
pose will steadily be pursued, both by
the enforcement of the law now in
force and the recommendation and
support of such new statutes as may
be necessary to carry it into effect.''
"The question of international bi
metallism will have early and earnest
attention. It will be my Constant en
deavor to secure it by co-operation
with the other great commercial pow
ers of the world."
"In the revision of 'the tariff cspoe'.il
attention should be given to the re-en
actment and extension of the reciproc
ity principle of the law of 1S90, under
which grent stimulus was given to our
foreign trade in new and advantageous
markets for our surprus agricultural
nnd manufactured products. The brief
trial given this legislation amply justi
fies a further experiment and add!
tional discretionary power in the male
ing of commercial treaties, the end in
view always to be the opening up of
new markets for the products of our
country by granting concessions to the
products of other lands that we need
nnd cannot produce ourselves, nnd
which do not involve the loss of labor
to our own people, but the end to in
crease their employment."
"Congress should give prompt atten
tion to the restoration of our Amort
can merchant marine, once the pride
of the seas in all the great ocean high
ways of commerce. To my mind few
more important subjects so impera
tively demand its intelligent considera

THINKS HAWAII SHOULD BE AN-
NEXED WITHOUT DELAY.
Congress in Extra Session Immigrn-;
tion Bill Passed by House Durrnnt.
Must Hang Senator Mark Banna.
WASHINGTON, March a. Senator-
elect Turner of Washington State, in
an interview today said: "While I am
doubtful as to what should be done
in the way of Cuban recognition, 1 be
lieve a strong policy ought to be
adopted when the rights of American
citizens" are jeopardized. I was a Re
publican up to the last campaign, and
have not abandoned the principle of
protection which has been abandoned
by the Republicans, who now favor a
discriminating tariff. I shall examine
carefully any tariff bill prepared by
the present Republican leaders before
giving it my assent. I at least will
not aid Banna m carrying out his
pledges to the protected industries."
Turner thinks Hawaii should be an
nexed to this country without delny.

WILL TRY HABEAS CORPUS ROUTE
JAPXESE IMMIGRANTS WILL
MAKE AN EFFORT TO LAND.
Claim That They Have Contracts
Say They Sailed from Japan nnd Arc
Under Protection of That Country.
The counsel for tin- Japanese immi
grants in quarantine today Hied with
the clerk of the Supreme Court ap
plications for a writ of habeas corpus
in the cases of the free and contract
The all-absorbing topic of discussion
in Honolulu just now is the Japanese
question. The landing of 005 Japanese
on tlie quarantine island by the Shin
slilu Maru and the refusal of 535 of
that number by this Government has
incited much feeling in tlie Japanese
A feeling which runs equally as
strong is prevalent among the Anglo
Saxons of Honolulu. There is a diver
sion of opinion on the rights of the
present lot of immigrants to remain
in tlie islands. While the bulk of the
people are not informed upon the law
touching upon the immigration of Jap
anese into Hawaii, either as free or
contract laborers, still tlie belief is
current that there is a defect in he
Now that the matter lias readied
the courts everyone anxiously awaits
tlie decision of tlie tribunal oft this
paramount question of the hour. In
ca.se this lot of "students" and labor
ers should be as successful in landing
here as were tlie former "students,"
a mass convention of Anglo Saxons is
not at all improbable. Such n meeting
of citizens would be for tlie purpose
of demanding tlie Executive Council to
pass a law which would prohibit tlie
Landing of undesirable Japanese in Ha
waii nei. Tlie Executive Council lias
full authority to take such action.
The customs authorities re-ex
amined all of the Japanese detained at
the quarantine station again last
ui"ht, with tlie result that recom
mendations will be made by the Col
lector General to .Minister Cooper to
reject even a greater number than was
at. first intended. This time tlie exam-'
inatiou was conducted by Deputy Col
lector McStoeker, assisted by Port Sur-i
veyor Streatmcyer, ox-Judge Magoon
representing Minister Cooper nnd
Chester Doyle, interpreter. All tlie
previous evidence was gone over again
and much new testimony taken. The
party spent tlie entire night at the
station, returning about 8 o'clock this
morning. The examination is still in
Considerable excitement was created
about the city last evening over a
rumor that there was a riot among tlie
Japanese immigrants in question. Tlie
request for ten men from the police
force by Superintendent -McVeigh to
relieve his guards, who were worn out
by overwork, was the only grounds for
tliis unnecessary scare.
A squad of police are now doing
guard duty and will probably continue
as a precautionary measure until some
disposition is made in the ease.
Kinney & Ballon, counsel for tlie
Japanese immigrants, this morning
filed with Clerk Smith of tlie Supreme
Court applications for i writ of hab
eas corpus in behalf of the contract
laborers, as well as the free laborers.
The Supreme Court has set Friday for
the hearing of tlie applications.
The cardinal argument set forth in
behalf of the "students" or free labor
ers is that they are possessed of $50,
the amount of money required of any
immigrant to land on these islands.
This being the case, the counsel con
tends that these men are being un
lawfully restrained of their liberty.
The matter of tlie contract laborers
is by far the most important and The
Star has printed in full the arguments
advanced by the attorneys for the Jap
anese and placed on file in tlie court
today. After giving the names of the
many contract laborers wiio have been
rejected, the petitioner.? represent that
they are subjects of His Imperial Maj
esty, thu Emperor of Japan; that they
arrived in Honolulu on Februnry i!7 on
the Shinshiu Maru, from Kobe, Japan;
that they are informed and believe and
on such information and belief alleg
ing the fact to be, qualitlcd to enter
and to locate In said Republic of Un
wall, under the treaty now existing
between his linperinl Majesty, the Em-
pcror of Japan nnd the Republic of Ha-
wnii and under tho lnws of tlie Repub
lic of Hawnii.
And petitioners further allege on In
formntion and belief that during the
mouth of October last the Kobe Im
migration company, a corporation or
ganized and doiug business under th-;
laws of tho Empire of Japan and Ha
waii, received bona fide orders from
certain planters nnd plantations cor-'
porntions in tlie Hawaiian Island.) for
two hundred and twenty Japanese la
borers, and that said planters an 1 cor
porations further made applications
in due form and as provided by law
the Board of Immigration for leave to
import such laborers, said applications
being' as follows:
For the Makee Sugar Company, 100
For T. II. Davles & Company, 30
For Waiauae Sugar Comnanv 30 lab-
Hawaiian Sugar Company, 00 labor
ers. That said board of Immigration re
jected said applications on tlie ground
that they were not. accompanied by
bonds whereby said applicants obli
gated themselves to import into tlie
Hawaiian Islands within eighteen
months from the date of said applica
tions ten white laborers to every one
hundred Asiatics called for by said ap
plications, which bond is unauthorized
by law, and is an illegal exaction on
the part of the Board of Immigration.
And petitioners on information and
belief allege that said Board of Immi
gration unjustly and contrary to law
and their duty and obligation refused
to consider said applications for the
sole and only reason that the same
were unaccompanied by bonds in form
nnd to the effect aforesaid.
And petitioners further allege on in
formation and belief that owing to
some oral assurances ghen by ,1. A.
King, Minister of tlie Interior, and a
member of the Board of Immigration
to A. G. M. Robertson, attorney in fact,
for the Kobe Immigration Company,
residing in said Honolulu, that bonds
might be filed Inter, an order was for
warded to Japan for 220 Immigrants,
and that the Kobe Immigration Com
pany secured your etitioners to fill
said order, your petitioners believing
and understanding at the time of
consenting to come to tlie Hawaiian
Islands that they were coming pursu
ant to the laws of the Hawaiian Is
lands and said treaty between Japan
And petitioners never believed or
understood that there would be any
question as to their right to land, but
'.old out their possessions, gave up
their then occupations and embarked
from Japan arriving in Hawaii as
That petitioners prior to leaving
Japan, entered into a contract in writ
ing with the Kobe Immigration Com
pany; that said contracts are uniform
and tlie same through, a copy in the
Japanese language and a translation
thereof in the English language being

And petitioners allege that they and
each and every one of them hao now
in. their possession a contract similar
in form and purport tn tlie form set
forth in exhibit "A", and .that the con
tracts in their possession aforesaid
have been duly executed according to
tlie laws of Japan both by the Kobe
Immigration Company and by tlie im
migrants. That upon the "th day of April, 1SUG,
the Japanese parliament passed a law
for the protection of emigrants, which,
by linperinl edict, became and was law
at all the times liereinaboe referred
to, said act being entitled: "Tile law

aforesaid, and the form thereof, has
received the ollieial sanction of the
Foreign Department of the Empire of
Japan, pursuant to laV, and said im
migrants sailed with the sanction of

JAPANESE AND HAWAII.
BERLIN, March ni The "Kreuz
Zeitung" calls the attention of Europe
to tlie scheming of Japanese statesmen
for the acquisition of Hawaii. The
steamboat line from Honolulu to Se
attle, it says, is only one mesh of a
net. of vast ramifications. Japan in
tends to make the Pacific islands all
tributary to her, at first commercially,
and subsequently politically. - Honolu
lu possesses great maritime and stra
getieal importance; thieh is increasing,
daily. In view of the rapid develop
ment of cities on tlie Pacific Coast, this
importance will assume an interna
tional character if tlie Nicaraguan
ennui is ever opened.
At present there arc 20,000 Japanese
living in Hawaii, and if immigratim
continues at tlie present rate the Jap
anese population will soon gain the
upper hand there, particularly since n
great ninny soldiers, who took part in
the war with China are now settled
there with their families. The Japan
ese element is a danger for all seafar
