I Consular Notice to the Japanese
Laborers on the Plantations.
Despite the suspension by the
Japanese Government of the itnmi
KMtion of Japanese laborers to the
United States in view of diplomatic
relations, there is a large number
going to California or other Pacific
States immediately after their ar
rival in Honolulu, thus deceiving
the home authorities and being
false to their declaration to come to
and to remain in Hawaii.
Although, as a matter of course,
it is natutal for the laborers to be
inclined to go to places where they
can get higher wages, yet they
ought to have great consideration
for the policy of their own govern
ment. It is, probably, no exagger
ation to affirm that most of those
who emigrate to the mainland are
beguiled by the honied words of in
terested and irresponsible employ
In view of the present state of
affairs, His Imperial Majesty's Con
sulate General has held conferences
with the Hawaiian Planters' Asso
ciation with the result that it has
finally come to the conclusion to
increase the wages of the Japanese
laborers on the plantations through
out the Hawaiian Islands from the
i st of May, 1905.
I hereby request with all the
earnestness in my power that the
Japanese laboiers may be diligent
and faithful to their various lines of
work on the plantations and not to
act contrary to the policy of the
Japanese Government by going to
the mainland, thus violating their
tacit promise to the Home Gow m
mciit and violating good faith to
April 20th, 1905.
II. I. Japanese Consulate Gen
eral, Honolulu, T. II.
The following self explanatory
letter was addressed to the Japanese
Consul General by the president of
the Hawaiian Sugar Planters' Asso
Hawaiian Sugar Planters' Associa
tion. P. O. Box 315.
Honolulu, T. II., April 18, 1905.
Mr. Miki Saito, II. I. J. M.
Consul General, Honolulu.
Dear Sir: I now beg leave to in
form you that for some time the
j Hawaiian Sugar Planters' Associa
tion has had the subject of an in
crease of wages to plantation labor
ers under consideration.
In looking back on the past few
years I think it will be admitted
that this Association has during
all the time when the sugar industry
was so unprofitable been exceed
ingly liberal with its laborers, fre
quently paying more than the in
dustry could well afford, and it is
j still the policy of the Association to
l deal as liberally with the laborers
j as circumstances will admit of. The
present condition of the sugar niar-
iket gives promise of better returns
to the plantations and pursuant to
the policy above outlined it is the
intention to make an advance in
j wages from the first of the coming
This Association fully recognizes
the great interest you have always
taken in the welfare of the Jap
anese in these islands, and especially
in that of the plantation laborers,
and I am sure you will be pleased
to hear of this action of the Asso
ciation. It is greatly to be regretted that
the Japanese should show such dis
position to listen to the stories of
paid labor agents and recruiters
from the Pacific Coast and to seek
employment on the mainland, and
it is hoped that the increas; of
wages now proposed will have the
effect of satisfying them with their
work and surroundings so that they
will remain in the islands. I am
sure this Association can with con
fidence rely on your exercising your
well established influence in encour
aging the Japanese to remain on
the plantations instead of wander
ing off to other unknown countries
I have the honor to be, Dear Sir,

The Australian government has
adopted a nickel-in-the-slot machine
that is quite novel. When a stamp
cannot be bought conveniently a
person may drop a letter with a
penny in a box, and the legend,
"One penny paid," will be stamped
on the envelope.
InpniiCMi Disregard for Lifts
Most of the Japanese wounded
have been placed in the hospitals
with Russian soldiers. The l'in
landers, almost nlouc of the Euro
peans, take an interest in the poli
tics of the fight, but they make
none the worse soldiers for that.
One of the most inexplicable things
to the Russian soldier is the habit
of the Japanese to commit suicide
when confronted with defeat.
There are so many eye-witness
reports of this nature that it is im
possible to discredit them all. Jap
anese officers especially seem to
make a practice of saving their last
cartridge for themselves. A Rus
sian under the circumstances would
rather go down fighting, leaving
his enemies to do the killing or else
surrender if he thought there was
nothing to be gained by holding
In the capture of Poutiloff Hill
especially, there were a number of
such cases. When the Japanese
batteries were captured one officer
shot himself across his gun. An
other drew his sword and fenced at
the empty air until he was shot.
During the same fight two villages
occupied by the Japanese were sur
rounded and burned. Numbers of
the Japanese remained quietly in
the huts and weie burned to death.
A Russian officer hauled two
Japanese prisoners out of a blazing
hut, but one slipped back and per
ished in the flames. Japanese offi
cers were found in the huts after
the fight, burned to death or suffo
cated by smoke, sitting in chairs as
though they had been quietly await
ing their doom.
Longest Span Itrldge.
There is now under construction
across the St. Lawrence at Quebec,
a cantilever bridge which, when
completed, will contain the longest
span of any bridge yet erected, not
even excluding the great cantilevers
of the Forth bridge in Scotland.
The structure consists of two ap
proach spans of 210 feet each, two
short arms, each 500 feet in length,
and a great central span 1,800 feet
The total leugth of the bridge is
4,2.20 feet, and although in extreme
dimensions it does not compare
with the Firth of Forth bridge,
which is about a mile in total length,
it has the distinction of having the
longest span in the world by 90 ft.,
the two cantilevers of the Firth of
Forth bridge being each 1,710 feet
