Outlining what he believes will be

alter Ihe war Ban ended and the Hun
is reduced! to hie proper place in the
scheme or things, F.. Fu.xnn Bishop,
nremiirnt or urewer & ".. i.in..
'.. ' '
made' An addreaa before the Ad ('lilb
vraieruajr ii nn i wn-1 arim- i nut- nro n
ia the Young Hotel, in which he accen-
tualed the need tliut Hawaii has fhr ,
wore human energy applicable to the
special agricultural neeilH of this
"patch of isiiinda in the l'acilic.
Time and again during his ndjress
Mr. Bishop was gieeted wild upplnuse
as he made his points regarding the
war, or in coliuection with economic
conditions in Hawaii. As it has do
veloped, said Mr'. Bisliofv, it is not the
" Yellow peril, " but the " white peril "
wielding the sword of autocracy, which !
has been the real peril of the world.
Mr. bishop also emphasized the tact
that in the Kant, in Hiihsia and China
and India, great after the war problems
will be solved by the tremeiidouH hiiinan
energy available, and that is what We .
need in Ha wait, where practically ev-I
erything elae is available. He held that
the American ideal for these Islands
was orle all could subscribe to, but that
white men were not constitutionally
created to work in the cane fields,1
which only Oriental labor could do
properly. ;
Altogether the address by Mr. Bishop,
take its place as a vnlnable contribu
tiou to the attempts to solve problems
before Hawaii in its status nfter the
war, and is as follows: j
AfUr the War Status
"When aled by your committee to
talk on t!ie status in Hawaii after
the war, I was not at the moment im
pressed with the broad significance of
the subject, which subsequent reflection
has disclosed, and the more thought
given to the topic, the more has it dawn
ed uriun me that it involves a myriad
nf ramifications leading us into nil
tinnal anil international problems, that
are perhaps confusing the minds of, men
trained to grnip such questions, which
I confess lire beyond my powers of
"In the first instance, it is ilillicult
for the ordinary mind to get past,
"Over the Top" as it were, -the all
important task of the present time,
namely, winning the war; the biggest
undertaking that any nation or aggre
gation of nations has ever engaged in
since the dawn of creation. The in
clinatlon is to win the fight first, and
make every other consideration sec
ondarv to such a purpose.
"What will be the status of world
conditions after the war depends much
on the terms of peace, an unknown
factor, but we must necessarily proceed
on the avowed hypothesis that we win
the war, that the masters of (Jenmiin
will be licked to submission, nnd tbat
the terms of pence will be the terms of
the Allies. I can conceive of no peace
nf any permanence or safety on any
other lines.
"As to (lermiiny's part in the future
of the world, its commerce, and as a
decent domicile for the human species,
much depends upon the (ierinaus them
Reives and what disposal they make of
their over lords and masters, and to
what extent they eliminate the present
militant control by the autocrat I
can conceive thut the Herman nation,
stripped of the militaristic tyrant, and
governed by, with and for the people,
can hold a place in the sun of civilied
nations, but not otherwise.
