Proposed to Suppress the Male Benefic
iaries of the Japanese Women by Se
curing Their Deportation.
Honolulu is to have a Parkhurst, and
"Society for the Suppression of vice."
Theodore Richards Is 'to be the Park
hurst, and the nucleus of 'the society is
the meeting of preachers and othen re
ligious workers who met in secret ses
sion last Saturday afternoon at the Y.
M. C. A. Similar methods are to be I
used as Pjirkhurst and his society used
in New York, although a little different
direction to effort Is to be irlven. Like
the New York society, fts Honolulu pro
totype Is going to use and enforce the
law already on the statute books rath
er than seek to agitate for new laws.
It will raise funds with which to secure
evidence and hire lawyers to prosecute
loiators or tne law.
Its first efforts will be directed against
the Japanese procurers who live on the
shameful earnings of the Japanese wo
men who formerly lived on Pauahl
street. It Is proposed to suppress them
and their Iniquitous mode of life by the
ery drastic measure of deportation. It
Is proposed to secure such conclusive
evidence against them that their con-
Ictlon In the courts will be a certatn-
ty, and then to apply for their depor
tation under statutes and treaties
which '.the society has been advised are
adequate for the purpose.
The law under which the preachers
are proceeding Is found in a section of
the immigration treaty between Hawaii
and Japan. There is hardly a doubt
but that the section In question covers
the case. It is also understood that
the Japanese consul offers no objection,
but, on the other hand, is favorable to
any plan of ridding the country of Its
Japanese social lepers. The difficulty
before the preachers Is In getting evi
dence In each individual case, which
must be done. Agents and inter
preters sent out to gather testimony
have found both men and women ar-
rayed 'against them. The women nave
replied "don't know" to questions about
the men concerned. At the same time
the men seem 'to have had an Inkling
01 wnai is going on, ana laKen pre
cautions In their own interest.
The women' have located largely In
Iwilel. It Is there that most effort has
been put forward to locate' the men and
get desired evidence against them,
This has been only partially success
ful. Following Is the section of the immi
gration act upder Which the preachers

who may create trouble or disturbance,
or encourage dissipation' of any kind
among the emigrants, or who may be
come a charge upon the state.
The meeting last Saturday was
largely for the purpose of Interesting
business and monled men in the plans
proposed with a view to raising the
money necessary to carry on the cam
paign. Kinney.Ballou & "McClanahan
have been retained to direct the collec
tion of evidence, to arrange it for pre
sentation in court and to be the legal
advisers in the campaign. The Attor
ney-General's, department has been en
listed and will give all the assistance
within Its dutlep. Detectives and in
terpreters have been employed to se
cure evidence. There has been some
difficulty In securing the services of
competent and' trustworthy Japanese-
tor the work, because of the fear they
entertain of the possible consequences
The class of Japs against whom the
campaign Is directed, has had some
inkling of the matter and have pulled
their klmonas a little tighter around
them and are preparing for the fight
of their lives. It is said there are two
societies which they control which have
resources equal to $40,000 which they
are propared to spend In the fight. How
they got their Information, in view or
the secrecy which has been maintained
is unknown, unless they got It from

Dr. Bishop says:
"The fire temporarily broke up the

maintained on Pauahl street. These
gentlemen have been In earnest confer
ence with the members of the Minis
terial Unlop, also with business men of
the city, in order to secure if possible
the total eradication of this gang of
Comparatively few of the Japanese
colony as yet knows anything about
the movement. Those who do for the
most part wish It success. S. Mine-
klshl, the special correspondent here of
Kobe Shlmbun says: "Of course, as
Japanese, we feel humiliated by the
presence of this class of our own coun
trymen. We wish as heartily as any
one for the eradication of the social
evil. At the same tlmo It ought not to
be overlooked that the real cause of
the existence of the social evil among
the Japanese here In the proportions
in which it exists Is the Hawaiian reg
ulations which limit the number of Jap
anese women who may come hero to
the proportion of 230 to 1,000 men. Such
nn Inequality Is contrary to the law
of God and of Nature. It Is Inevitably
to be followed by an Increase of the
social evil, and that Increase engenders
the class against whom this movement
Ir directed. If all the men of that class
are deported, conditions will bring morn
of them here or develop It among those
already here. Conditions will have tn
be changed before this class can bo
erndlcated or lessened.

Called by Leading Japanese to Voice
the Sentiments They Hold lh Common
With1' Chamber of Commerce.
Another protest has arisen against the
Court of Claims. The Japanese take
the same view of the .personnel of the
rnnrt Iqu Ifi Vino hnnn rrin ltVi n t tlio
Chamber of Commerce does, and have
called a mass meeting for Saturday
night at which to vote their sentiments,
A meotlnjr of elchteetr well known and
leading Japanese ('as held last night,
at which the meeting was discussed
and the conclusion to call a mass meet
lng was arrived at. Among those at
the meeettng were, K.Imanlshl of the
Yokohama Specie Bank, S. Klmura, one
of the leading Japanese merchants.
S. Mlneklsh . of the Oriental Colonl
zation : Society, Y. Soga, editor of the
Hawaii Shlnpo, u. Gungl, editor of
New Japan, S. Otsuka, editor of Yamato
und.Dr. T. Katsanuma.
The objection raised to the make up
or the court Is that the commercial
community is entirely unrepresented.
The fear Is felt, that with the court
composed entirely of lawyers, there will
be a tendency to make the proceedings
before J It technical, necessitating the
emp!6yment of attorneys to prosecute
claims before It, and adding to the bur
dens of the claimants to the prejudice
It has not been fully decided where
the mass meeting will be held, but It
win be; held In the garden of the Jap
anese school on Nuuanu street, near
vineyard, if it can be obtained.
It Is jaeslred to give the utmost pub
Hclty to the meeting, and to the sentl
menta pxnrpswod nt it. Tn thlo onrl
speeches will be made In English, and'
newspaper representative's, members of
the Chamber of Commerce, and the pub-
11c generally, will be invited, to attend,
The promters of the meeting wish It
distinctly understood that their object
tions are not based on any reasons pe
culiar to them as Japanese, but on rea
sons which 'they share' in cpmmon with
other residents. But holding these sen
timents In common with other residents
that at so many claims from ambng
their people will come before the court,
they ought to voice their sentiments
In regard to the court.
The Government this morning receiv
ed from Japanese Consul Salto a pro
teat against the rules made to goveni
the court. He finds ambiguity In the
regulations, 'and believes that the end
aimed at will not be attained. More.
over, he thinks his people will not, un
der tneirecrulatlons. obtain their r ehts.
"I Will certiilnlv not oak thf mrnhm
of thVourt of-Clalms-to-resIgn," said
president .Dole at noon.
The opinion of the Government seems
to be that the Chamber of Commerce
Is laboring under a misapprehension as
to tne duties or the court. It is pointed
out that there will be a number of legal
questions to decide in each case pre
sented, while there will be no necessity
of appraisement at all. The court was
made one of lawyers on that account.
Prior to the nppolntment of the court
recommendations In regard to Its per
sonnel came from both the Japanese
and Chinese colonies. The former sub
mitted a list composed almost entirely
or Japanese merchants and profession
al men. The recommendation of the
Chinese was about the same, their lead
lng names being Chinese.

There was also there an Apollo of a
Japanese who had no wife at all, but
who had good looks', good clothes and
good money. A lllrta'tlon arose between
the handsome wife and the moneyed
bachelor. The flirtation grew more se
rious, and the other day the moneyed
bachelor, having made all arrange
ments, carried away the handsome wife,
leaving the husband to the slender com
forts of the relief Camp.
The eloointr couple hied themselves
to Dr. Jobe at the Board of Health, and
took the prophylactic serum, so as to
enable them to leave the Islands. It
Is supposed they Intend to leave for
Japan by tne nrst steamer. However,
they are keeping out of the way of the

Is in charee of the camp, and seems to
