Another purpone of Mr. Mead's trip,
according to a statement made last

No further information was vouch

Situation la Serious
rttnoe the -albng oat of tho national
fumrd and th calling into activ serv
ice of Hawaif's Class 1 A registrants
he sugar men have awakened, too
tt a realisation that the labor sit-
lation is a serious one and threatens
o become more serious. It is fait that
hat situation must be met in some
-ay, and the planters have been cast
ig about to And a way.
President Wilson 'a recent proclama
ion permitting employers of labor
long the Mexican border to bring la
limited number of Mexican laborers
nder contract for the period of the
ar has suggested one possible way of
elieving the situation here. If the
order labor employers are to bo ai
med a ."iinpciiKioii of the contract
iior laws, why not Hawaii! Hawaii
raising a commodity needed by the
nileil States and its allies and it is
he expresM'd bilief in some quarters
icre that possibly the government
ould not be unwilling to strain a point
nd permit the introduction of eontrsct
uborers into the Islands in order that
lawaiian sugar production shall not
all off.
Insaiana Suggested
It is not tho purpose of the planters'
Relation, it is understood, to try to
ecure Mexican laborers, but to get
hem from any other source which may
prove available. Vladivostok was re
out ly utreti-d as a point where it
vould be possible to get plenty of
ubor for the Hawaii plantation, if the
eat net ions of the contract labor law
were removed. The Japanese press bus
'eeently been discunsing an alleged de

It is fairly well confirmed, however,

Asked as to the reason for his re

Through all the changing fort use of

Through action of the land board ye

the Island was turned' over to Kben
