TUESDAY, MAY 11, 1897.
Thoro cannot but bo much in
terest attach to tho experiment
with whito labor which tho
Ewe. Plantation Company has
placed in tho hands ot Mr. Fitz
gorald, tho labor commissioner of
California, to ougiuuor on tho
other sido ot tho wator. That
fontloman made a ilyin visit to
fow plautatioiiB on different isl
ands, takiug roading of llio tlior
ometer, and forthwith concluded
that it was all nouseuso nbout
whito men not being ablo to sus
tain tho Boveroat and tho warmest
labor in cultivating cauo. Ho
, further gave out with authoritativo
mplmsis that whito men could
sot only do so but moro also.
TJjoy could perform several times
as much work as tho Orientals now
employed in our Holds. It does
ot need that one should huvo
had oxperiouco as n plantation
manager or ovorseor, to justify
one in smiling out aloud at tin
sanguine huo of the Oaliforniau's
propositions based on, praotioally,
nothing. Doubtless Mr. Fitzger
ald himself could work iu the
cane for a day or oven
a ireek without collapse. So
could any nowspnper editor of
Honolulu. Whoro tho test comes
iu, however, is doing suoh day iu
aud out, uuder our not very hot
but constantly bakiug suu,for ouo
year, two years and tho third year
of tlio labor contract supposed.
Our police in this wonderfully
well-behaved country are t kept
from dying of inanition through
idloucss, now, partly by target
competitions with rifle aud pistol,
but a good deal by running down
deserters from ships and planta
tions. It is safe to say that with
in six months from tho en
gagement of auy large
number o tho now unemployed
whito men iu Califoruin, in the
ordinary labor of our cane fields,
there would bo need of doubling
tho polico force to keep tho new
element grinding out thoir con
tracts in tho unremitting roast ot
tho Hawaiian sun. Should the
polico reinforced or otherwise bo
able to cope with tho situation,
making the laborers tired of run
ning away, tho resources ot
"intelligent white labor" would
not hovo more thou begun to be
taxed. It is when they had
organized for strikes on the most
approved plan, including perhaps
acts such as some of the Califor
nia labor element lately "swuug"
for, or were sentenced so to do, iu
connection with the railway
strikes that is when tho "party
of tho other part" would becomo
weary of the experiment of which
Buoh glowing promises had been
Mr. Fitzgerald, it has been
stated, was not prepared to under
take the responsibility, off banded
ly, of guaranteeing his promised
labor against strikes. There was
a clear breakdown at the outtet.
A pretty stale our chief industry
would be iu, when the "walking
boBB" divided authority over the
labor with the plantation manager,
and when gaugs of mou marched
from estate to estate as happened
before now in California, driving
willing workers by threats of vio
lence from their dutyt Mr. Fitz
gerald's recruiting bureau iu San
Francisco would undoubtedly bo
swarmed with tho very same ele
ment as that which was in such
doings, including the class from
which naval aud merchant mirino
sailors aro enlisted, and we all
know tho troublo as well as the
profit iu rewaids to the polico
which those sailors give by de
serting at this port.
If tho scheme in question were
restricted to bringing in genuine
Americans brought up to work ou
farms, it would be a grand object
to try tho experiment, with a view
to having its subjects take up
homesteads at the end of thoir
engagements and becomo vnluablo
settlers. Without any assurance,
though, that the supply will not
be constituted of tho rooont west
erly drift from Oastlo Gaidou, it
is au unsafe schetno for this
country. Here, again, tho ques
tion arises as to whothor real and
respectable American labor, bred
under laws that prohibit contract
labor and make it odious, will be
available for bond sorvico, of uu
tried hardness, in au unaccus
tomed climate, and that for a het
period of years. If so it must be
under conditions so changed from
those existent, respecting both
pay and treatment, as would if
now in vogue make thousands of
whito and untivo men. at present
in tho country eager to ong.igo in
plantation omploymont. If con -ditions
enn bo thus adapted to
lure Mr. Fitzgerald's wards to our
shores, why cannot that likowiao
bo douo, now without auy delay,
to afford a respectablo livelihood
