THE NEEDS OF HAWAII (Continued from page one.) the dredging work already done by the territory, Illustrated by maps which were accepted as testimony. Estimates for dredging as asked for In 1901 wete shown to aggregate $200,000 since when .the territory had actually paid out $01, 058 In said dredging, stopping only for lack of funds. Many questions as to depth of water, changes of lighthouses dimensions if channels, harbor bottom, buoys and the claims or ownership of riparian land possessors on the harbor Jront, were nsked by the commission and answered . by the Secretary. The Thannel through the reef to Knllhi hnr Tior and the dredging of the same was emphasized by Mr. Cooper as wise and practice'. The contract and agree ments concerning Sumner or Quaran tine Island were entered Into but Se cretary Cooper was unable to enlighten the commission as to the terms of agreements except In a general way. The maintenance of buoys was also orougnt forward as an unjustifiable lo cal expense. The Hllo breakwater at a cost of JuOO.OOO brought out a question from Senator Burton when Secretary Cooper proclaimed the roadstead unsafe In northerly gales. The senator asked if the secretary was aware that the find lug of the naval board differed from his and answered with n. personal exnerl ence of his own when the survey ship Pathfinder was at Hllo and many ships Were compelled to run to the open seas, while several steamers kept their screws going to save their cables and n ship lying at the wharf was towed to a safer mooring by two steamers. . The purchase of ground for Federal property, on the lot bounded by Mer. chant, King and Alakea, was next mooted, the Secretary explaining that no puunc lands were available In Ho nolulu, but were In Hllo. where a new post ofllce and a customs house were asked for separate buildings being needed on nccount of the configuration of the land and the position of the town necessitate the customs house being built on the Waiakea and the post office on the opposite or town side of the harbor. The labor question was then taken up at some length. Secretary Cooper explained the former system under which limited numbers of Chinese were allowed to land as unskilled laborers fbr a limited time, the plantations set ting aside their passage money with the Treasury. These, with Japanese, provided the unskilled labor In the days of 1S90 a.nd 1901 when affairs were prosperous and trade with the United States for machinery, food and cloth ing amounted to twenty millions annu ally, reduced now by Increased labor prices, (submitted to the commission) fifty or sixty per cent. Skilled labor had also left through this depression, not through Oriental Interference, In stanced by the reductions of hands at the Honolulu Iron Works. By request of Governor 'Dole the question of the practical destruction of the rice Industry from high priced labor and the Importation of Japanese rice, was Included and the point shown that the Chinese Invariably left after secur ing certain sums. Hawalians were de picted as skilled laborers only and not available for agricultural labor. Being questioned by Chairman Mit chell, Mr. Cooper stated that ho knew of no Instances of watering stock In plantatlonhares, that the dividends were a fair profit on the capital Invest ed, and that when paid amounts were also paid out from surplus profits Into Improvements. That now many divi dends had ceased and others were "reatly reduced. He asked for the old conditions of Importing a limited num ber of Chinese for a limited term of years and Senator Burton, summing up, asked the direct question. "Under the old conditions you could meet any competition, even Cuban. with tariff reductions; but with the cheap labqr door closed In Hawaii and open In Cuba, with reciprocity, you would meet a danger almost amounting to a prohibition of your product?" "It appears to me that way," replied the Secretary. Governor Dole, on anneal. substantiated the remarks made by Mr. cooper. The leper question was referred to as one on which deep sentiment was felt and which should be coped with, as It always had been, by local control and not opened to the stigma of foreign lepers being Introduced through Fed eral aid being established. The num ber of lepers and cost of maintenance was quoted. Governor Dole offered the use of the legislative hall with Its nro plnqulty to records and the greater ac commodations. The commission will consider the matter. The Portuguese will submit a letter concernlnir 1'um.hbowl early this after noon. The Republican committee paid their respects. S. M.
