The situation has not Improved any, and it is unlikely that the Japaneso
will return to work Monday as they said thoy would when they struck oil
work last Friday. Beport last night from Ewa plantation.
Everything is quiet here, tho situation is unchanged, and we aro keeping
tho mill going. Wo will finish up tho
oil day as usual. Beport from Oahu
Wo will not have so many men at work on Sunday as today, but ovorything
is going ahead with tho now laborors. Tho fields aro being cleaned up and
grinding goes on. Havo n'ot heard of any meetings today. Beport from Honolulu
(Aiea) plantation at 11 p. m. last night. 1
Fires at Ewa Plantation.
Tho following statement issued yes
terday by E. D. Tonnoy, president of
Ewa plantation, discloses pertinent
rpcculatioa with regard to two
fires which started on Ewa plantation
after midnight yesterday morning
but which, fortunately, wcro extinguish-
3d ucioro much uamago was done. Just
how these fires started, or who was responsible
for tlieni, does not yet appear.
Mr. Tcnney's statement follows:
"During the greater part of yesterday
and Inst night tho laborers wcro
holding meetings tho Indication seems
to be that their original plan of formulating
demands, to bo submitted to
the management, and then returning to
work on Monday, will be carried out.
.This despite tho efforts of a rough clement,
resident on tho kulcanas in tho
Ilnnoulluli valley, who have, I
endeavored to tho utmost extent
to influence tho laborers to refrain from
roturning to work.
"Last night at 12 o clock there wns
a flro in Field Kb. 20 and later, at 2
a. m., in Field No. 11 both of theso
fires wero put out promptly by tho
peonlo living near. Tho area bilrncd
is insignificant perhaps not more than
jn aero altogother. 1 am very doubtful
if plantation laborers set these fires,
llthough it is very significant to noto
that both of these fields are plantation
fields; that is, not fields cultivated by
;ontractors, and hence none or tho laborers
havo any direct financial
in them."
Strike Breakers Plentiful.
Striko breakers are plentiful and the
limitations aro having no trouble sccur
ing men in town at $1.50 per day to
take tho places of tho striking
labororB. On Friday nearly three
hundred men wont to Aiea, and
yesterday morning two trains wcro
jscd to transport reinforcements. At
7 a. m. yesterday a special left for
Honolulu (Aiea) plantation with -150

Portuguese and Chinese. On Monday
noro will bo sent down, and at tho
lame timo it is expected tuat a dratt

On Monday the Japanese of Ewa
ilantatiou who "walked out" on

t, aro expected to go back to work

Japanese Laborer Not a Tenant
In Be Japaneso Strike. Is a Japaneso laborer occupying one of the
plantation cottages a lesseo or tenant of tho plantation, to whom ten
days' notice to quit must be given, oven after ho has, of his own accord,
ceased to work for tho plantation?
Tho Hawaiian is Section 20S9. This statuto applies only
whero tho relation of landlord nnd tenant exists between tho parties, according
to many Hawaiian cases.
Tho authorities hold that a servant allowed to occupy a houso on
tho premises of tho master without any express, letting or any fixing of
rent, does not bccoino a tenant of any kind. This is surely truo if tho
occupancy Is incidental to the employment and for tho benefit of tho
employer 'in carrying on the work.

and was obtained by reason of tho contract of hire."
Ilowman vs. Bradley, 151 Peun. St. 351, 17 L. It. A.
"If tho contract i. o., of employment was rightfully terminated,
then tho plaintiff's right to tho houso was at an end, and ho could

"Tho occupation of tho houso by McQuado and his family was part
of his compensation for tho pcrformnnco of his engagement with tho de-fondant;

to join tho striko by tying up
The "striko breakers" tako their
lunch with them from town and are
brought back to town at tho closo of
tho day's labor, being paid every day
for their toil! As stevedoring work is
ndtplentiful along tho waterfront just
now thero is littlo troublo in picking
up all tho labor needed for tho work
now in hand. Mayor Fern, who is about
as closely in touch with tho laboring
clement ns any one, was asked to let
tho Ilawailans who want work, know
whero thoy could obtain it. In this
way tho supply has been steady.
, Tho work at Aiea, tkoroforo, has been
picked up and the cono is going toward
the mill and grinding is going on as
Moad and Jarrott.

On & Cash Basis.
"When tho striko was started at Aiea
and Wuipahu tho Japanese storokeop
crs at once began doing business with
tho strikers oti a cash basis. A reason
for this iwas that ono of tho big mills
of Honolulu which re-sacks Japaneso
rico and sends it down in batches of
a hundred bags at a timo, rcquirod cash
from tho storekeepers beforo thoy
would send new supplies. The strikors
will bo required to pay ns thoy go along
and in this way it is easy to figuro
when they will come to tho end of their
purso strings, and look to Makino and
Ncgoro to supply the deficiency of food,
Lured- by Promises.
A Japanese laborer from Aien, who
was in town -yesterday, stated that ho
was at tho end of his resources already
nnd many more wcro in the samo pro
dicament. However, ho said that ho
and thoy would look to Makino to sup
ply them, as thoy hnd understood Makino
tb say thnt ho was worth about
$40,000 and could see - the matter
through wlnlo tho striko was in progress.
If individual demnnds begin to
como upon Makino, tho list is sure to
lengthen out and tho strikers will havo
ample opportunity to judgo whether
Makino 's "$40,000" is tangible or not.

Struck by lightning, which shatter
ed tho forcskysnll mast Into splinters,
nnd springing n dangerous leak below
tho wnter line that forced her to mako
port Tor repairs nt Hio Janeiro, the
bis ship Dlrlgo, which arrived hero
yesterday with 45BJ tons of coal for
Undo Sam, has had such an eventful
passage that her skipper, Captain
Gcorgo William Goodwin, declares
that ho will never mako another voy
age around Cape Horn. Tho Dlrlgo Is
ono of the finest ships afloat, but Captain
Goodwin, states that it will take
more than money to induce him to
run tho chances of having to undergo
another such experience as he has
just passed through.
A story of terrific gales, thunderstorms
Illuminated by (lashes of lightning,
and bad weather almost from tho
beginning of tho long voyage away
back In October, 190S, until sho
here yesterday Is what tho
Dlrlgo brought. Hurricanes In which
n smaller vessel would. In all probability,
havo gono to tho bottom were
encountered. Mountnlnous seas that
wnshed tho decks and mado tho vessel
almost unmanageable became a part
of tho dally budget of events. But
through It all the old Dlrlgo stood up,
and yesterday morning she was sight
ed off Diamond Head, being towed to
her berth at tho Channel wharf Into
last evening.
' Captain Goodwin tells tho tale of his
ovenlful trip In few words, with tho
exciting details left out. Ho docs not
tell nil ho might of tho steadfast labor
that was performed at tho pumps
when the vessel was leaking badly, nor
does ho wasto words in the dcscrlp
tion of tho Incident when a bolt of
lightning shot from tho sky and, In
tho twinkling of an eye, converted
what had been a fine piece of Ball-carrying
timber Into a million tiny
splinters. Things like theso Captain
Goodwin doesn't wall over; but they
wero enough, however, to mako him
declare that, after over half a hundred
trips around tho Horn, he'll
never make another one..
"Wo left Baltimore," said Captain
Goodwin, "on October 26, 1D08. Owing
to a heavy galo which -was blowing
from tho eastward, we anchored at
Capo Henry and did not proceed to
sea until the following; Friday. "We
then sailed in company with tho ship
Acme, which was bound for San
Francisco, for; considerable time. Of
course, wo stuck on canvas and tried
to show a clean pair of heels to each
other. For several days wo wero together,
with strong west nnd north
west winds blowing all tho time,
"On Friday, November 6, wo had
a heavy gale from southeast to southwest,
during which we lost several
sails and, lncldentully, left the Acmo
behind. Tho loss of those sails was
merely the beginning of our troubles
however, for things en mo in bunches
after that. Of course, tho first Ill-luck
which bpfell us was when we ran into
thb gale which delayed us off Capo
Henry, thus forcing us to go to sea on
a Friday.
"During the terrific wind and tho
heavy sea which came up, tho ship
rolled from side to side, creaking and
groaning, nnd, owing to tho cross-seas
running ono from tho northwest and
the other from tho southward tho
decks were flooded fore and aft. It
was a nasty situation.
"At four p. m. on November 0 tho
carpenter camo to mo and reported that
tho ship was leaking. Ho also said that
tlicro was a great quantity or. water in
tho hold. 1 immediately wont down
in tho lower hold, through tho lnzarct
hatch and found tho water rushing in
through a crack in a plato twclvo feet
under water. To stop this, if possible,
I mado a pad out of cotton batting,
sonked it in whito lead, and placed it
over tho crack. Then, over this, I
fastened a plank tuat weugcu it in
and stopped tho great part of tho inflow
of water.
"Thero was not any water in tho
hold when tho pumps were sounded at
eight o'clock that morning, but, when
we had stopped tho leak, wo found that
the hold contained two and
feet of tho brino which had poured in.
Perhaps you think 1 wasn't thankful
that tho leak was whero I could get
nt itl The crack was twclvo inches
lung, and if it had been in a plaao
impossible for mo to reach, I doubt
very much if tho pumps could havo
ship on tho ton of tho water.
"Well, wo pumped out us much of
tuo water as wo couiu, aim tiien i tooK
up the iloor nnd hoisted tho rest up
through tho .lazaret hatch, using big
oil-drums to do tho work. Wo wero
two days getting nil of that water out
of tho ship. As tho leak was so far
aft. I thought nt first thnt I tould build
n bulkhead, fill it in with cement, stop
tlio jenu, ana keep on my voyngo, i
worked on this scheme for several days,
but in splto of all wo could do and
wo left nothing undono thnt wo could
possibly think of tho water continued
to forco its way through and wnth the
cement away, Wo had to hoitt from
forty lo fifty barrels of water out of
the hold oeiy day,
"Bo it seemed that T could do nothing,
niul I decided to go into lllo for
repairs. Two duys after tho gula wo

Notwithstanding tho fact that her

liners. Captain Goodwin was greeted
by Joo Gllmnn, who Is agent for tho
owners of the ship, yesterday
ns well, as by a number of
friends who have become acquainted
with the genial skipper during his
many visits to this port. Mr. Itay,
the first officer on the Dlrlgo, Is also
well known In this city, and thero was
a quota of his friends at tho wharf
to bid him "aloha" after tho long voy
age. Tho Dlrlgo ts docked at tho
Channel whnrf, where sho will dls.
charge her coal.
Captain Goodwin wroto tho follow
ing description of lllo Janeiro, In
which port his vessel was laid up for
"The harbor of Rio do Janeiro Is one
of tho best In the world. Tho water
front of tho city Is ono continuous
park or garden, and Is kept In flno
order. They have a perfect electric
light system and It Is the best lighted
of any city I was ever In. I could see
the loom of tho city lights when forty
miles out at sea. The new Improve
ments In the streets and buildings will
compare favorably with any city In
the world. The United States Is well
represented by Mr. George Andereon,
theConsul General, a courteous and
agreeable gentleman who Is ready to
nsslst one In any way ho can.
'The ono great drawback to lllo Is
tho excessive heat In summer. Then
everyone who Is able lives up In tho
mountains nt Pctropolls. Tho facilities
for repairing ships nro ns good tHoro
as thoy aro at any port. Mr. Lagc of
Iago nrothers Co., ono of tho most
energetic, fair-minded and courteous
gentlemen I ever met, has a plant nnd
bonded warehouse where ho can store
a cargo, repair n ship, or build you a.
new ono If you want It, nnd send you
on your wny with pleasant memories
of the timo you spent at his Island.
Owing- to tho excessive duties, everything
Is very denr, all of which tends
to mako ltio a good plnco to keep
nwoy from If you can. It Is largely
owing to American brains and American
Inventions that It has been possi
ble for both Brazil and the Argentine
to cultivate tho lands and mako tho
Improvements they have. It did not
seem to me, however, that they had
much use for anything American. I
did not seo many of our homo products
In the retail stores, except tho Victor

that talking- everything but English nt

of ono schooner, wns tho only
