I notico in tho Star nn article
from ti San Francisco pupor re
lating to tho wholesale dischurgo
o) white mon ou Spreckolsvillo
plantation, in which they claim it
is so, and that all thoso who woro
discharged were incompotont per
sons, and that they woro not re
placed by Asiatics, but an order
has been received at tho com
pany's oflico in San Francisco for
whito mon to work on Sgrcckels
villo to fill positions of thoso dis
charged, or to that effect.
If Mr. Spreckolsvillo will please
inform us where men from San
Fruucisco are better up in cultiva
tion of cane and sugar making
pleiiBO do so, aud lot tho incom
petent ones who aro now idle
know what lie wuuts of a man, as
all tho recent discharged white men
from Sprenktlsvillehuvehad many
years' experience on plantations in
this country. Some have been
fifteen yenrs on different planta
tions nnd it is well known that a
number and tho largest propor
tion too of the discharged men
are tho best on tho islands at
plantation work, and yet they
have to lie idlo aud soo inexperi
enced men imported to fill their
positions, to say nothing of tho
poor families.
Tho San Francisco papers aro
not aware of what they aro pub
lishing when they say that no
Asiatics have taken whito men's

as a whito man been substituted.

The saitl Mr. Morton was one of

Tho hiit person discharged was
Mr. Jim Thomas, who has beou

of his discharge nothing can be
said, as incompetency of that

tho Const wo may hear of a few
more losing their hoads to make

Aajbort Toognod, tho oldest hand
on Sprookolsville, has just got his

from tho big plantation. This
has caused considerable commout
on Mr. Sprockels' policy
of discharging whito mon

as the Star has it. Mr. Toogood
has worked ou tho plantation
from its infancy and had just

incompetency is woll proved when

Grent Northorn Nippon Yuson
Kaisha's steamship Sakura Maru
has cleared and will oarly tomor

discloses principally cotton, lubri

of Uongkong, Kobo und Yoko

on tho wharvos awaiting shipment
nearly twico us much cargo as it

this has beou the case siuco tho ar

ago, of tho Nippon Yusen Kaisha's
maiden ship, tho Miiko Maru. Of

arrival of tho next vessel, the

week ending with the clearance of
the Sakura the local custom houso
receipts amounted to $3750.
Coming this way tho Nippon
Yusen Kaisha's steamers have not
been so heavily laden. Thoir
cargoes raugo from about 100

Washington, D. C, April 1(5.
Oue of tho Uawaiiaus who is haro
urging annexation is representing
to members of Congress and tho
State Dopartmcut that ho is seri
ously alarmed over tho prospect
that Japun may gain dominion
over tho islands uulcss this Gov
ernment takes soeedv action. Ho
complains that tho matter of an
nexation lancuishes in tho oflico
of tho President.
Somo weeks ago camo news that
thero was au unusual influx of
Japanese iuto Honolulu. At the
headquarters of tho ex Queen hero
this was understood to mean
something moco than tho mere
Hocking of au unusual number of
emigrants to the island. It was
colonization for a purpose. Tho
movemont of Japnneso to tho isl
and iu largo numbers is, however,
not i) thing of tho past few mouths.
Tho recent report mado by the
Department of Foroigu Affairs of
tho Dolo Govornmont, of which
Mr. Sherman has n copy, shows
that this colonization has been go
ing on for four years.
.Recently, however, a wholo
boutload of the Japanese of tho
mora intelligent class weut ovor
to Honolulu, and this was tho cir
cumstance which openpd tho oyps
of this Govornmont. Among tho
latest arrivals wero many students
from Japanese colleges. Thoy
ovidoutly did not go there for the
purpose of trying tho now coffee
boom or of working on the sugar
Uoforo this, however, tho Japa
nese movement had been noted by
tho representatives of tho Govern
ment who camo to this country.
Amqng them woro General Hart
well, who wrote about tho abdica
tion which ox-Queen Liliuokalani
signed and gavo to Attorney-General
Smith of tho Hawaiian re
public. It was uudeuied that tho
object of thoir visit wus to renow
iutorcst in the annexation scheme,
which was iu a fair way to accom
plishment whon Mr. Cleveland
withdrew tho treaty from tho Sen
ate. The Hawaiian representatives
woro informed soon after tho in
auguration of PresidontMcKinley
tli'it tho nnnoxntion plans would
hayo to wait till the tariff matter
was out of tho way that is to say,
until it was disposed of by tho
Conferences which havo evi
dently monut uothiug havo boon
hold botwoen Secretary Sherman
and Mr. Hatch and tho Attorney
General, although it was Btatod
that these conferences woro mero
ly informal. Thoy havo beou so
informal that General nartwoll,
tho chief legal advisor of tho Dolo
Govornmont at its formatiou aud
who was hero on the annexation
business, has loft tho city and
gono to Boston. It wns tho inteu
tiou of tho Hawaiian representa
tives to havo tho old treaty sent to
tho Senate, or to ask for a com
mission, or to havo tho question
of annexation, failing in both of
tho othor two plans, oponed up in
the Houso. All of theso plans, it
was stated tonight, havo failod.
Presidont MoKinloy and Secre
tary Shormau both favor annexa
tion,liowovor. If Mr. McKinloy
should Bend tho old treaty to tho
Sennto and it should bo disposed
of in Hhort ordor, as is vory likoly,
considering tho tompor of tho Re
publican buuutoro ou the question
to say nothing of Democratic sup
port, it would havo to go to
tho Houso and Mr. Hoed
would havo to appoint a commit
tee to consider it. This, however,
would ruu counter to tho Houso
program which Mr. Heed Is
carrying out, not nioiuly for liim
solf, but for nvory interest expect
ing to be bouolltod by tho new
tiuiir bill,
Mr. IJeed and the Houso ad
journments havo cut off tho hope
pf tho presentation of tho Ha
waiian matter by any member of
tho House, and so tho Dole Gov
ornmont stands, or will stoud ns
long as it can. If it falls, as it is
Buid it may, by roason of its in
creasing public dobt, nothing can
provont first a Japaneso protecto
rate and then Japanese occupa
tion. Secretary Shorman was asked
tonight if thero was anything new
iu the situation. He said that
thero was nothing at ull startling
in the present condition of affairs.
Ho said that tho going to Hawaii
of the Philadelphia was of no im
portance, or of any other Ame
rican Bhips. "Why, Bhips," ho
said, "go thoro evory dny."
