HAWAII AND

The conclusions of Mr. Trenor on
the labor conditions of tho Territory
are ot tho utmost Importance, and It
Is highly gratifying that ho Is able
to comment so favorably.
Jlr. Trenor came to the Islands as
a rank outsider, so fur as any pre
vious connection with local pcoplo
or Interests Is concerned. He wns
recommended by mainland Federal
nfllclals us an expert In thn work
hleh Hawaii's Immigration Hoard
Is to tuk? '"V " came here ns free
ftom previously 'formed :lmllces "s
any man could be. Ho has gone over"!
the field to sec conditions for him
self Investigate ns Intimately as he
chose.
When Jlr. Trenor says that tho
condition ot tho laboring peoplo era
plojed on the Hawaiian plantations
Is far better than that of thousands
on the American mainland, and a
paradise compated with that under
which the workers of Europe exist,
we have tho carefully drawn decision
ot one who has been throush the
mainland centers und tho Kuropcan
centors, and knows whereof ho
speaks.
This Is pleasant reward for those
who hnve worked steadily to Improve
the comfoits of our laborers and es
tablish them more permanently In
tho Islands.
Tho opinions of Mr Trenor, coup
led with tho mission he has under
taken, should go far townids upset
ting popular and erroneous opinions
pievalling on the mainland. Home tit
which are very well expressed by the
California correspondent whose let
ter uppears In another column. Fur-
thcrmore, what measute ot truth
there may be In the Callfornlnn's
idea makes more Impressive the im
portance of Mr. Trenor's work and
the absolute good faith ot those who
are backing the Territorial Hoard of
Immigration.
What Hawaii alms nt Is a proper
balancing of the labor population,
and u bteady increase ot n citizen
population that will become perma
nent workers In tho main Industries.
The speediest practical method ot
gaining this end is to enlist the Eu
ropean Immigrant who conies to a
new country to establish n new home
for himself and family. This Is tho
work to which the agent of the Ter
ritorial Iloai d of Immigration will
devoto his experienced effort. It
means moro to the Americanization
of this Territory than any other
movement that has been started or
pioposed.
We believe that the plan will be a
success, and should it fall in some
details, this partial failure will not
bo considered by the true Americans
of Hawaii as condemning the whole
program.
It Is the duty of every citizen ot
the United Stntes, hero and on tho
mainland, to lend all tho moral and
active support it Is possible for him
to render.

With very great Interest I read the
speech delivered by Governor Frcnr
last January legardlng the conditions
in the Islands at the present time.
He looks with Bonie degree of anxiety
to their future stntus'if moro ot the
white clement is not encouraged to
become permanent settlers in the Isl
ands', more In the shape of small
landed proprietors, which Idea, I
think, is n good one.
There are many respectable white
men nround this section who would
bo glad to come to the Islands If they
could lie assuted of obtaining work
when they get there. A white man
of tho respectnblo element will
work nt nn thing when his trade is
dull, but he does not earn to work
with cither Chinese or Japanese, bo-
causo they will alwajs piove the dls
ngiecablo nggressots. The Oriental
Is only fit to work and nssoclato with
his own kind. If the Islands should
ccntunlly become Japanese, the
cmplovers will themselves be to
blame. Somo time ago I r,"raiB to tho

ends meet. Would the Japanese in
their own land do this hnvo their
own peoplo walk nround Idle whilst
Americans were kept steady to workT
Any whlto man, American or Eng
lish, endowed with good common
sense nnd Intelligence, knows tho
Japanese would do no such thing ns
the Americans tire doing today.
An American citizen should be
given tho preference every time whe
ther In work or any other way. If it
should ever come to a wnr between
Japan nnd these United States, whero
woufd the Japanese bo found? Why,
on the side of the Mikado, to a man.
Hut the American citizen, whether ot
American or English descent, I ven
ture to say, would bo looking to tho
Interests of the Anglo-Saxon race and
the future welfare of tho white race
In general. I was formerly u depos
itor in an Oakland hank and during
a conversation with ono of the tellers
I expressed my disapproval of their
keeping tin co Jupaneso Janitors
while so many white men, were. Salt
Btanlng for want, of "work, and who
could produce. Uio best of reference.
His answer wns "oh, wo would not
let. ttr 'Japs go for anything."
' Fancy this taking placo In a Jap
nnese hank, even in Oakland or San
Francisco! But place tho same con
dltions in a bank In Toklo. Not
much I It wotrid not be tolerated for
24 hours.
The views I havo expressed are
held by many intelligent people on
tho Pacific Coast, and who look at
tho matter from an unprejudiced
standpoint, looking to the welfare
and preservation of their own race.
I am neither ungrateful nor forget
ful of a kindness dono mo, nnd I will
hero acknowledge an act ot kindness
on tho part of two or three Japanese
to myself when a retugco in San
Francisco during the earthquake and
fire period of 1906, and will do to
them ns much when tho time pre
sents itself, but when I see so many
of my own kind of people making
despernte struggles, within the past
nine or ten months to keep their
heads above water, it makes mn feel
like expressing my views In regard
to the wrong line of action ot the
various employers, both hero and in
tho lluwallan Islands.
One man of Intelligence, who
worked with me, nnd whom I met on
the street n short time ago, told me
he was trying to keep body nnd soul
together on 7c. a day. Ono family
hero In this town was found to be
without food In the houso. Tho
mother had committed suicide and
the children were crying for bread
Many such cases could be mentioned
A skilled machinist "who operated a
big lathe at M per day Is now' trying
to eke out a living by sweeping out
a saloon and cleaning spittoons, etc.,
etc. Another man who was formerly
foreman over about SO men Is now
picking fruit on a ranch. Another
tkllled machinist, was peddling, and
making possibly 14 or SG per week
to keep a wlfo and child. For my
own part. I would llko to como out

(Continued from Pace 1)
In the Islands the four principal
ones having been thoroughly gono
over nnd many cnrs given to a
like study In tho United States and
tho greater part of Europe possibly
warrant the drawing of n compari
son between the condition ot the so-
called "common laborer" here and
elsewhere.
I can state, without the slightest
reservation, that with notably few
exceptions tho substantial nnd nlry
quarters furnished the men nnd their
families, the plot of land frequently
cultivated to Its capacity, the sani
tary conditions enforced, and the
general air of comfort encountered
nro all In striking contrast to condi
tions found In other lnnds. One has
only to visit the notsomo dens of tho
criminally overcrowded tenements In
our large cities, or to seo the peas
ants of ninny European countries
herded llko tattle when thoy nro
not literally herded with them to
be convinced of the truth of my state
ment. When one further realizes tho
rigor of our climate in many sections
of the mainland, that of tho Terri
tory Is a veritable gllmpsd of Para
disc. Tho workers In tho sewers,
tunnels, mines, nnd llko exacting oc
cupations arc constantly threatened
by hygienic nnd physical dangers ab
solutely unknown here. Pieo rent
nnd grounds, fuel, water, and Irie'di
cal attendance form tho background
of n very attractive picture to tho
toller In thofloids. Whether tho
wngo-',Yltl attract tho man Is n prob-
.?.! to bo threshed out. All things
considered, It seems there Is more
thnn an oven chance that It will. One
most important factor In that connec
tion Is tho certainty of continuous
work here. The difficulty seems rath
cr one of securing continuous work
ers. Other lotalltics offer apparently
far greater InUucemcntB. They exist
frequently during limited periods of
tho lear only. When labor has to
bear tho cost, ot transportation from
placo to place in quest ot employ
ment they become more imaginary
than icnl.
An Impression seems to prevail
thnt labor onco assigned to a partic
ular location Is not at liberty to seek
work elsewhere and that a kind ot
"black-list" Is maintained which
precludes its so doing. This lias no
foundation whatever. Perfect liber
ty in that'conncctlon Is assured. Tho
only bar to a man's employment is
his known unfitness or unwilling
ness to perform tho work offered.
The nlrcadv established rulo In
somo places of throwing open tho po
sitions of semi-skilled labor to those
among tho whlto element fot'nd cn
pablo of filling them is commendable
In every Way. Its nssured extension
Is both a wise and deserved Btep.
The situation may be summed up
in a few words. Abundant labor is
tho prlmo necessity ot nil Industrial
enterprises. Aside from any human
itarian viewpoint, It Is essentially a
commercial proposition to so treat it
that It will be attracted and held.
My best efforts wilt he directed to
the attraction of your needed sup
ply.
Further discussion might carry jno
beyond limits I havo prescribed. 1

shall therefore content mselt with
a few remarks of n purely personal
character. When tho Invitation to

Orceco last Spring and a message
for Honolulu was handed in nt tho
cable office thcie I was regarded with
amuzement. The assurance that It
wns In Oahu, Territory of Hawaii.

out, 1 wns Informed that I probably
meant to say "Sandwich Islands." I
mention this ns Illustrative of what
to a great extent Is true ot tho Unit
ed States. To many, Hawaii Is prac
tically 1111 unknown land. 1 must
confess that at tho time of my call
I had much to learn. Hut now, tak
ing possibly patdonnblo liberties
with Cae-ur's memorable words. I
enn heartily say: ,
"I came. I saw. I was ,
captivated." '
Tho number ot those willing to tie
held in like bondage will bo Immeas
urably nugmentcd when tho count
less attractions of jour Islands,

It would be difficult to fittingly
describe tho charm whlcluyour "Har

always possess not only for those
who have seen little of tlio world,
but particularly bo for thoso to
whom Its many attractions uro fn-

I feel under so many obligations
