THE IMMIGRATION QUESTION.
From the statements made, and
opinions expressed by the planters
lately in council in the city, it is evi
dent that they have settled upon
Japanese and Chinese as the two
strings to their bow in the labor ques
tion. By the report of Wednesday's pro
ceedings it will be seen that they are
prepared, in case the procuring of a
sufficient supply of Japanese proves to
be doubtful, to ask the Government
to allow Chinese to come in again.
Without enlarging upn the point
that on account of many national
considerations it would be difficult
for the Government . to change its
declared policy in this matter, we
would ask: If the planters build
hopes upon being able to materially
lessen the cost of labor by opening
the door, a little, to let in the Chinese,
are they sure their hopes will be ful
Admitting, for the sake of argu
ment, that we are left to this hope,
and that there is no doubt but that
free Chinamen would flow, in, is it
best to have the number and quality
left to Chinese dictation ? We opine
not ; fer we do not think the Chinese
already here would permit their own
countrymen to materially lessen the
wages they are now receiving. Is it
not best that there should be some
sort of counterpoise to induce the
Chinese to come to planters terms ?
And what can more effectually fur
nish this counterpoise than the fos
tering of a Japanese immigration ?
How can we better neutralize the
schemes that will, we are confident,
be nut in practice to keep up the
price of labor by the Chinese than by
assisting the Government to carry ouf
its plans, so happily inaugurated, for
receiving: those who are sent out as
i the wards of one nation to become
the wards of another, with the guar
antee given that employment will
be found for them?
And this leads us to say that the
planters must remember that while
the Legislature voted money for im
migration purposes they did not put
the money itself into the Treasury.
During the recent biennial period,
when high prices ruled for our staple
product, it was as easy for the Gov
ernment to sell its bonds to pay for
Portuguese immigration to the tune
of $600,000, as it was for the planter
to borrow $10,000 on his estate. Now,
the same cause, depressed state of
tho sugar market, and low prices,
make it equally difficult for either
party to get the money they require
to carry out their respective plans.
The planters, as a combined body,
can, however, if they like, find the
money to carry on immigration of
laborers. In our opinion this is what
they ought to have been called upon
to do from the first, just as the plant
ers of Fiji and Queensland have had
to do. The Legislature has thought
differently, and successive adminis
trations for the last twenty years, in
cluding that now in office, have
favored a differept policy. If the
planters want that policy to be per
petuated, they have the way plainly
before them. If the money is forth
coming, immigration must be car
ried on as heretofore, at public expense.
OCTOBER 28, 1884.
ANOTHER VIEW OF THE LABOR
-. j , . j
' We print to-day a communication
from a member of that class which is
even more deeply interested in the
question of cheap labor than the
planter himself. It embodies a view
of this question highly unpalatable
to the employer, but which is enter
tained here and everywhere else by
an overwhelmingly large majority of
mankind. We publish this commun
ication as we received it (except for
some unimportant literary correc
tions) having first ascertained that it
is the genuine production of a labor
ing man who is seeking employment
here, but has not had a very lenghty
experience in the country. We com
mend his outspoken expression of"
opinion to the consideration of every
employer. We have heard much
lately of the employers' side of the
question here is the laborers'. Some
where between them lies that truth
which can harmonize both interests.
From enquiry we learn that the
origin of the letter which a "White
man" has sent us is the conviction he
has acquired that the planters do not
recognize the fair value of the willimr
labor of a white man in comparison
with the cheap and inefficient work
of imported coolies. The white men
who are willing to work on planta
tions find the cold shoulder given to
tnem, ana mo one is ready to give
them (except for special work) more
than a Chinaman receives, or to pro-"
vide for them better accommodation
man tue piggisn quarters .wnicn a
Chinaman will put up with. Planters
have indeed not had very fortunate
experience of white labor in the
Norwegians and Germans who came
here under cbntracts. This is prob
ably why they .figpt shy of white
labor generally. In this we believe
they make a mistake for their own
interests. Of this, however, nothing
but experience will probably con
vince them, and we are sorry to
learn that there is a universal indis
position among them to make the
THE CITY OF PARIS.
The letters which have been re
ceived in town from passengers who
left here in Messrs. Hoffnung & Co.'s
City of Paris, represents the voyage
as having been a' delightful one. The
steamer reached Singapore on the
12th August, after a passage of 22
days. There she remained 11 days.
Our Honolulu friends on board, in
spite of all patriotic feelincr, were
compelled to acknowledge that Singa
pore was a delightful place to live in,
and that in house-construction and
modes oF living and beauty of sur
roundings, Honolulu was a long way
behind-hand. We have been per
mitted to see a letter from Mrs. Allan
Herbert, who with her daughter,
made the voyage in this steamer. It
bears date 29th August, and was
mailed at Colombo in Ceylon, at
which port the steamer touched on
her homeward route. Up te that
time no bad weather naa oeen en
countered. At Singapore the passen
srers were sumptuously entertained
by the Hawaiian Consul, Mr. C. A.
"Ranch. The excellent attendance at
dinner was felt by the ladies to be a
pleasing contrast to that obtainable
from t he average Honolulu China
men." "Twelve courses and five
waiters for nine people," struck those
who are accustomed to the ordinary
Honolulu menage as something ap-
proaching luxurious extravagance.
Mr. Ranch was very kind and atten
tive to his unwonted visitors from
Hawaii. Unfortunately the Maha
rajah of Johore was from home
otherwise the Hawaiian visitors
would have been made acquainted
with the hospitalities of an Asiatic
Whole No. 1496.
At the Planter's meeting on Friday
a member wanted to kuow why Mr.
Gibson should be addressed as "The
Premier," since according to his view
the law knew no such official. Oppo
sition newspapers havo more than
once spoken of Mr. Gibson as the
"elf-styled Premier." The opportu
nity seems good to make the state-
v. i i. j-m jt n i t
uicud lUtll lliu U111UO VI x rcuiivr la
none of Mr. Gibson's invention.
That he Is the Prime Minister of the
Kingdom in every sense In which
that word is used In other countries
is a fact which no one can deny. But
his title to be so addressed rests Mm ply
on the fact that he received - his com
mission from the King as Premier, as
old Mr. Green before him and for
ougnt we Know many Prime Minis
ters before Mr. Green.
THE LABOR QUESTION.
The editor of the Daily Hawaiian
is at sea about the condition of the
Loan Act. All the money which it
provides for Immigration purposes
was spent during the biennial period
anu future expemmure ior mis pur-
pose must evidently come out of re
venue, unless indeed that indefinite
item for "Encouragement of Agricul
ture" can be utilized for tho purpose.
If the planters want to push immi
gration of laborers they should pay
for them beforehand as planters do in
Fiji and Queensland instead of "oh
THE LATE MR. JAMES BOOTH.
No official information as to the
illness and death of Mr. Booth has
yet been received by the Government
beyond the telegrams sent by SIgnor
M. Cerulli briefly announcing this
sad event. A letter expressing tho
sympathy of the Italian Government
has, however, been received by the
Minister of Foreign Affairs, a copy
of which we have been permitted to
publish. It runs as follows;
Bo Consolato', 7
Honolulu, 23d October. 1884. J
Sir I have the honor to convey to
Your Excellency the regret which
His Italian Majesty's Government
feels at the death of James Booth,
and to communicate' to you at the
same time a few incidents connected
with this sad event. ' :; ' '
Your.IJxcellency will permit me to
quote a part of the letter of H. I. M.'o
Ministei of Foreign Affairs, dated
September 17th: "It is with deep re
gret that 1 communicated to you that
young James Jtsootn, pupil ot the
Military Academy of Turin died on
the 15th September at Naples, in con
sequence or an attacK or cnoiera, an
epidemy which was very violent at
Naples at that time.
Young Booth made just then a stay
at Naples on leave, and was lodging
at the Pensione d'Oriente. As soon
as he was attacked by the disease he
received : immediate treatment by
three distinguished physicians of that
city, Doctors Peril, Piacinini and
Manfredi, whose skillful and devoted
attendance did not suffice, though, to
overcome his fierce and short illness.
James Booth was a young man,
much esteemed by his superiors and
beloved by his companions in the
Military Academy, and his loss will
be very greatly ielt.
Although Your Excellency has no
doubt received a full report on the
above sad event from Mr. Cerulli,
H. H. M.'s Consul in Naples, I trust
that none the less the communica
tion from H. I. M.'s Government, ex
pressing their interest and sympa
thy, will be acceptable to His Ha
waiian Majesty's Government.
With high respect and considera
tion, I have the honor to be, Sir,
Your Excellency's very
Obedient, Humble Servant,
F. A. Sciiaefer.
