Population snd Production
Now let us look at this matter from
another angle ami which should appeal
0 everyoue here to get behind this
movement of the admiHsion of Chinese

Ia 1896, with a citizen population of
154,031 persons, J.t, 000.000 pounds of
re was grown on these Islands. In
1916, twenty years later, the citizen
population was -2, 771 persons and rice
grown here that year was Kl, 500,000
pounds, showing an increase of popu
lation of 74,740 but a decruaxe or 11,
600,000 pounds of rue grown. Again
the exports of rice from the Inlands and
grown here in ISHti were 12,000,00(1
pounds; twenty i earn later the export
pf rice from the Mauds was 3,641,943
pounds, a loan of over .'100 prceut
What ia the reason t Want of labor
for this industry, and the ban on Chi

OYSTER BAY", New York, April. 15
Col. Theodore Roosevelt received to
day the German bullet which wounded
but failed to kill his son, "Archie"
Boosevelt, during a recent engagement
in No Man's Land iu France. With
the bullet came a message from young
Boosevelt telling his father that he
expeeted soop to be out of the hospital
and back in the American trenehea.
horses, wagons, fertilizer aad all that
roes to make up the necessary equip
ment for farm industry.
To take up at once a part of the
ibandoned land once under rice culti
vation and producing nothing today but
nut grass, would require $500,000 of
machinery, implements and other farm
equipment, and this would all be pur
chased from the mainland, therefore
the resolution iu question now before
congress for the admission of Chineae
to the Islands as rice farmers is justi
fiable as well as beneficial financially
o the Ialauds and the mainland.
Chinese As Pioneer
The Chinese are the pioneer of the
'reat Industry of these Islands, the pro
duction of sugar, thirtv yearn before
1820. In mv Chinese' sent to China
and procured a mill to crush their cane.
In 1820 a Chinese built a mill for this
purpose on this Island. His descend
ants are living, two of them holding
responsible positions here.
France has now I 5, DIM) Chinese iu
that country imported since 1914, work
ing as agriculturists and beliwid the
line also in the trenches. England has
many thousuuds working on the farm
lands of that country, and there are a
large number in Camidu.
From these facts does it not demon
st rate, that we have the land in the
Islands lo proline food if we had the
luitablc labor .' Ho e heretofore wan
'rown, satin-lent for consumption and
to export.
The woik pei foi i I bv the Delegate
of Hawaii and n-clf, is, that the
chances are more tlian eer iu favor of
he pass ir. of a I ill bv conuresM for
'he admission of Chinese to Hawaii,
and not iiN.ne here, but on the mainland.
The farmers have .-omc to the conclu
sion thai lo proline and harvest they1
rops as desired bv the administration
they must pro. tin- needed labor and
the unanimous desire is for Chinese.
