Ho then Invited tlio unionists to liuo an Infor mal talk with hltn, nnd for n couplo of hours they told hhn their lows of existing conditions, while Mr. Kcefo nskeil a number of quostlons, mainly In icgard to wages p:ihl, cost of llv Ing nnd tlio Influence of Asiatic com petition, lie also giiNo n frank out line of what ho hail found during his Intcstlgntlon In Honolulu and on this Island.

Against Filipinos. Tlio Commissioner spoko on bis fav orite topic, that of tlio apparent worth lcssnoss of the Filipino Immigrants ns, lnlKirers and ns material for cltlrcns, and gave n resuuio of Iho facts which ho had gathered regarding (lie econo mic nnd social conditions of tho Ter ritory. It seemed to Mm. from what ho had learned so far, tint the rela tion of the problem of Aniortcanlzlug tho Territory lay. not In homestcid Ing, which ho did not believe greatly In. but In Iho Imimrtnllon of citizen from Iho mainland or of those eligible 10 cltlrcnshlp. It would, however, lio said, bo useless lo try to Import whites from tho mainland until thcro had been a general ralso in wages paid. Kwallkn explained Hint Iho Union was not opposed to Immigration In 1 1 self, but It did npposo tho Inuiortn Hon of I'ltlplnos and Husslans, who wero Iho worst peoplo In tho country. What was wanted was hnmchulldcrs. "You hnvo seen In tho paiiors what I think of Iho Klllplnos, hnvo you not?" nsked Mr. Kcefo.

Ho wnnled to know why these people did not come to Hawaii. "Theio must bo some Inducement," answered Mr. Kcefo, "Hut thcro Is more money per civ Ita hero than thcro Is anywhere In tlui United Stntes," nrguod nrlckson. Mr. Kcefo explained that it was a question of wages. Thioughout tho mooting tho con-l oiHntlon was a very Informal one, Mr. Keofe asking nnd answering many questions nnd showing a keen lntorest! In what was told him. Ho encouraged his Usltors to tnlk freely, and when they finally left tboy felt much pleas ed with Iho attitude taken by tlio Cpiniulssloner. Later In tho wook tho commltteo submitted tho following memorial to Mr. Keefc: To Iho Honnrablo Kccfe, Commissioner of Labor, Washington, I). C. Sir: In dealing with tho lalnr pro blem In tho Territory of Hawaii our minds ore filled with hopelessness that one meets in Iho expression of n raro that Is doomed to extinction. This feeling of hopelessness Is shared by Iho whlto people who have grown to like theso beautiful Islands and their slniplo people, and who reallzo that soon tboy must !oao the Islnnds or sink lo tho Urlcntnl standard of liv ing. Kor Inatanco . tho enrpenter work ami that of other trades In this City of Illln hits been doun mostly by ,In aiicso, because tho while mechanic could not cninpoto under nny circum stances with tho Japs In bidding on contracts. Tlio .lapaneso hnvo been paying n labor wage unon which n white incclinnlc. would slano. Tin .Inp.ineso carpenter Is getting from $ I. S3 per ilny to $2.30; tho while car penter getting fioiu JUTift to $;.0n tier day. Under tho existing .conditions tho whlto mechanics havo been dilcn out by tho cheap hut Infinitely loss elllclont .Japanese. To provo tho truth of our statement, wo will show that today on tho plantations, blacksmiths, cnrpeiitcrs, engineers and oven sugar boilers owe allegiance to tho Mikado. Now slnco tho beginning of what Is virtually tho inllllarv occupation of tho Islands, tho number of clllion mo chanlcs is again Increasing, though few American mechanics are employ ed, except on fimcrnmont works. Tho .lapaneso camo In a cheap laborers and chenp inliorers tboy bave remain ed who havo gradually drlcn out ninny citizen lnborers"froni many lines of work. Now thn .Tipinpso havo been ex cluded, not by an exclusion net on Iho part of tho United States, but by pro hibition on the part -of tho Oovorn ment of Japan. No morn Jnpaneso inborers nro coming In. and sonic of those who wore hero at tho ttmo tlio prohibition of cmlra'"." from Jntuin to' Iho United States .wont Into effect hnvo drifted nwny. nut tho total Jnp nncse population In Hawaii Is decreas ing very little. If at nil, births among tho resident Jnpaneso, being probably enough lo tnsko up for emigration and deaths. This has Its political as well as Us sociological aspect, for many of the Jnpaneso children born on American soil nnd therefore ellgl bio to become, by tho simple net of election. American clt Irons nro rearh Ing their majority. Some hnvo nlrondy become voters nnd tho tlmo Is not fir distant when tho Leglslnluro of thn Territory of Hawaii may bo largely composed of Japanese., Only the must prompt action on tlio put of the Fcdcinl (loeiiimuut, fore cd to net by aroused public opinion, can check the evils now fostered In heso Islands, can slop these Islands f i oin being made use of ns n brldgo over which n low class of Id hirers can Invade tho Pacific coast states ntiil bring about there tho same conditions ns now exists In Hawaii. The fact is that tho sugar corpora tions of tho Hnwallan Islnnds nro owr capitalized and that any fair valua tion shows largo profits. If tho sugar planters were prohibited from further importation of Orientals thov could nnd would get laborers from the Unit Pd Slntes who would Americanize tho Islnnds. This might rellovo tho sit uation, although It might somewhat reduce the Inrgo profits of the sugir planters, but would still iiennlt of n fair profit on legitimate Investments Therefore It Is hlghlv recommended bv us tho committee which repreents the labor organization of the City of Hllo. that the passage of an net by Congress applying In the exclusion of laborers of n low standard of llv Ing Into those Islands who would nev er become good Amer'can clllzens as Ibis Is nliolutoly necessary to pro tect this Terrltnrv nnd of the main land. Steps should nlsn be taken to enforce tho procnt Immigration lawi In tlio Hnwallan Islnnds. Respectfully submitted. I1AVII) i:VAMKO.
