ITALIAN'S UOOD CIT1ZKNS
The Bulletin gives space today
to the excellent roviow of the
condition of Italian laborers iu
the South given by the Now
Orleans correspondent of the Now
York Sun. The remarks upon
the character of the Italian, bis
ability and readiness to do ngri
ouUural work in a semi-tropical
olimato and bis usual law abiding
and industrious nature, aro par
ticularly tlmoly and should re
ceive the attention of all those
interested in the white labor
movement in Hawaii.
What the Italian has done for
Louisiana and the South in solv
ing tbo labor problem ought to bo
a possibility in Hawaii. In view
of tbo race prejudices in the
South, and an apparent disposition
not to allow the Italians recogni
tion among the rnliug "white"
element, it would seem reasonable
that Hawaii would present to in
tendiug immigrants a muob moro
favorable field for settlement than
the Southern States. Race pre
judice us it exists in the South
is an unknown faotnr iu Hawaii,
G.iol citizonahip is all that is

These, lawa aro so completely at
variance with American senti
ment, to say nothing of Ameri
can statutes, that tbo day of their
enforcement in Hawaii are num
bered. Italians bavo tbo reputation of
being qoick with their knives to
resent an injury, among certain
classes murderous eociotios exist,
yet it is not fair to judgo tbo
Italian by the worst classes of bis
nation. Tako tbo record of Italian

There may bo people in Europe
or the United Stales better ablo to
fill the labor gap in Hawaii than
Italians, but noono has taken tbo
trouble to look them up. Mr. Da.
in on bns turned bis attention to
the Italians, worked out a scheme
to secure tboir immigration to the
country. In consequonce tbo peo
ple have a tangible sobemo to con
template, not a theory, If tbore
aro other raceB moro acceptable
than tbo Latin, lot those wbo mako
suebs tatemonts prove them, by do
ing something more productive
than mere talk. What Hawaii
needs is laborers othor than Asia
tic and any man wbo is willing to
givo bis time and money to secure
a dilution of tbo surplus Asiatic
element should recoive tbo hearty
support of all thoso wbo have tbo
welfare of theso islands at heart.

Paris, Aug. 17. A epeoial edi
