Tbeie Is no need to get excited
over tho news r 10111 Hawaii. It ap
pears to be only 11 cue of a strike ot

as Illustrating the tendency of thu
Japanese In act In cooperation nnd ti

Just now, It Is iioiiu thu less tu be re
garded seriously. It Is n demonstra
tion Hint the Instluci of thu l'acind
Coast with lespect to thu Japanese Is
a sound one. There Is no mistake
about It, they nro not only non-naslniil-able,
but In large numbers thuy nro
a menace to the ieaco of any coiin-

It Is now clear mougli that the Jn-

Ami uiKin (he bisls of this situation
there arises n new problem In con

Intid Is out of the qustlon. Thoro re
ninlh two K)sslblo sources of labor
supply tho Philippine Islands nnd

perlmenled widely, prefer Chinese lust
as tho California fanners prefer hem:
nnd if It wero possible under tho Immi
