Sir: The undersigned, being u com

Builders' & Traders' Exchange of Ho
noluu, Hawaii, to draft and presen: a
memorial to your Honorable Commit
tee on behalf of said Exchange, have
the honor to herewith transmit uueh

things therein set forth.
L. E. PINKIIAM,
A. GARTLEY,
W. W. HARRIS.
Honolulu, August 18th, 1902.
To tho Honorable Committee of the
United States Senate, Honorable John
M. Mitchell, Chairman.
Gentlemen: The present deplorable
condition of the affairs of tho Territory
of Hawaii, In its relation to the general
government o the United States, ren
der It Incumbent upon representative
local business organizations to call
your attention to matters of nubile wel
fare. '
Isolation: The Hawaiian Islands are
so distant from the mainland, In fact,
the most distant large Insular body in
the world, that there Is necessarily a
multiplication of governmental, social,
and business institutions, and attend
ant expense out of all proportion to tho
character and number of inhabitants as
compared with Continental United
States.
Exposure: Situated directly in the
highway of the Pacific, with frequent,
aften almost dally, steamship commu
nication with Oriental and Australian
ports, en route to and from the Pacific
coast, Honolulu and Hawaii are ex
tremely exposed to the violent epidemic
diseases such as create public appre
hension and terror. This occasions
public expenditure beyond comparison
with the numbers and wealth of this
community. This expenditure Is cease
less, as, by such vigilance only, is the
safety of health secured,
Hawaii, at its present sole expense,
stands as a guard and quarantine be
tween the Orient and United States
ports.
Expense of Leper Maintenance:
While the number of these unfortun
ate beings, the lepers, is gradually de
creasing, yet, at the present they and
their children and attendants, public
charges, segregated on the Island of
Molokal, number one thousand and
nine, costing the Territorial Govern
ment to maintain, one hundred and
thirty-eight thousand, two hundred and
sixty dollars, annually.
To comprehend what a charge this
special misfortune Imposes on .this
small community, let your Committee
realize this charge is equal to the peo
ple of the Continental United States
maintaining 507,000 persons In complete
Idleness, at an annual cost of $70,093,
800.00. Such a burden would seem to
the people of the United States as too
onerous to be borne.
In addition, Hawaii Is obliged to
maintain all other enlightened Institu
tions, prison, reform, charity, hospltnl
and educational establishments.
This unusual condition und pheno
menal burden should make a profound
and lasting Impression on your minds
and recommendations.
Race and Social Conditions: In Ha
waii, Occidental and Oriental civiliza
tion meet In a contest parellelled in no
other country on the globe.
When the time comes that the Orien
tal aliens, as a body, insist on a cor
responding standard of living and fam
ily status to that of the white men, the
danger of the overthrow of Caucasian
civilization will cease. To attempt to
regulate by law, these differences, is
well nigh impossible. It is in the pow
er of the National Legislature, and par
ticularly in the power of the National
Executive Departments, the Army and
Navy, to throw their Government pat
ronage in support of the civilization
they embrace and expect to have pre
served for them and their successors.
Labor Situation: It is not in the
province of this committee to attempt
recommendations as to the labor prob
lem controntlng our main und almost
exclusive industry, the raising of su
gar. We do request your keen atten
tion to the fact that skilled labor is
being driven from employment, from
the Islands, or to a lower, meaner and
almost Intolerable scale of living,
through the competition of alien labor.
Private selfishness cannot be controll
ed. We, however, most emphatically
protest against any action of the
United Stales Government, through its
lqpal and ollicial representatives, In
employing, directly or Indirectly,
through contracts, contractors, or oth
erwise, alien labor.
'So far as Hawaii Is concerned, such
action by United States officials or con
tractors undermines the body politic,
and must react on the general welfare,
social and political,
Wo believe all United States Con
tracts or enterprises requiring nominal
skilled labor, should, by law, If possi
ble, or by Executive instruction, be con
fined to labor other than alien, nnd on
a scale of compensation permitting
American civilized standards of living.
Politics as Related to Business: The
peculiar political and specially legal
ized economic conditions existing for
many years in the Hawaiian Islands,
produced a bias, and expectation of
continued special privileges, that many,
even of our most intelligent and inter
ested citizens, could not overcome dur
ing the earlier periods of annexation.
On their support and patriotism this
Territory must rely for sound economic
nnd political conditions. Their better
judgment will ultimately prevail, and a
campaign of education and more ele
vated politics bo Inaugurated. It Is
doubtful If a peaceful community can
be Becured by discrimination in suff
rage. Business has been unfavorably effect
ed by many apprehensions as to tho
course of general and local govern
ment, nnd the misgiving still exists.
However, there are enough good, Intel
ligent citizens, who by sound, unsel
fish measures, and public election thu
fall, wll disclose the situation. Wc
submit If the Issue of good government
Is forced by events, the United States
should so amend Its organic act as to
provide a most Btrlngent nnd enlare-et,
veto power In proper hands, for the
control of local affairs, Territorial and
Municipal.
Losses from Bubonic Plague: The
facts havo been fully laid before Con
gress, In Senate Iteport No. 1933, 57th
Congress, 1st Session, and relief peti
tioned. The justice and necessity of
such relief should be apparent.
1 Public Federal Improvements: . To
' date they have been of minor lmpor-
tnnce, and devoted almost exclusively
to facilities for operations between the
Continental United1 States and the
Philippines nnd the Orient.
Light Houses: Are Inadequate and
still a local charge.
'Harbors: Are still maintained nnd
Improved at local expense.
Projected Federal" Improvements:
The projected Improvements at Pearl
Harbor, and camps and fortifications,
while of great local Importance, are a
vital part of the vast scheme of public
defence of the entire nation, and should
not be unduly weighed In our financial
relations to the Government.
Extraordinary Reimbursement of
Federal Treasury: From the extracts
from official statistics, given below, we
ask your Committee to consider the re
markable reimbursement made to the
United States Treasury, of not only the
entire' Federal Government expendi
tures In Hawaii, but the great per cent
already paid toward extinguishment of
the payment on account of the public!
debt of Hawaii upon annexation.

Should the above-named average
continue, by the beginning of the next
fiscal year of the United States, July
1st, 1903, the Hawaiian Islands will
have practically reimbursed the Unit
ed States Government for every dollar
paid out In behalf of annexation, fur
nished the Government with lands and
sites for Its various purposes, leaving
the title of all public lands and prop
erty In the United States Government
without cost to Itself.
This Is an unparalleled public finan
cial showing ;and it Is doubtful If ever
one country was absorbed by another
at no cost In so short a period.
The withdrawal of such proportion
ally enormous sums of money would
hopelessly bankrupt any like poulatlon
in numbers in' Continental United
States, and cannot be indefinitely con
tinued here without dire results.
Reciprocity Advantages: These were
not all on the side of Hawaii. A very
large per cent of the accumulations
from the financial benefits of Recipro
city have been re-invested in new and
en.arged plantations; much of It has
been thus lost or become absolutely
non-income producing.
The sugar situation throughout the
world Is a disturbing problem; to us,
a vital one. The Federal Government
should not look backward, but adjust
our relations to the conditions.
Relations to Continental United
Stutes: This organization does not
pretend to indicate the Constitutional
remedies to be applied to, or limita
tions that affect our status, nor point
out how our welfare must be brought
about by enactments of Congress, but
we do submit that from distance and
circumstances we do not enjoy the di
rect and Immediate benefits that cover
the Continental United States and Ter
ritories In the financial operations of
the Federal Government.
We submit our situation resembles
more that of a colony, and that the
revenues should not be unduly trans
ferred fro mour Territory to the Unit
ed States, and expended elsewhere.
Recommendation.!: We as'.v ol your
Committee, that by Its recommenda
tions it urge:
That all Government contracts and
work so far as skilled labor Is concern
ed, both directly nnd indirectly, be let
only to other than alien labor, and so
stipulated.
That should political unrest and in
competency continue the fundamental
law be so amended Hint business Inter
ests may have the protection at least
of an enlarged veto power, placed In
unbiased and Impartial hands.
That a means be promptly and ear
nestly sought to, by sultablo appro
priations or a proportional return of
revenue to the Territorial Treasury,
cease the Federal drain upon the re
sources of the Hawaiian Islands.
That there be a positive reimburse
ment by some legal means from the
Hawaiian Federal Revenues, of an
amount equal to the cost of the Leper
maintenance, and provide for a reason
able Increase, that further benefits may
accrue to these unfortunates.
In presenting these claims we seek
no advantage over other States and
Territories, but believing that we are
somewhat situated as other new acqui
sitions of the United States, we ask
suqh consideration as goes toward tho
maintenance of good Government, American-civilization,
and sound financial
condition, and a proportional cessation
of the present drain on our resources.
