THE PACIFIC COMMJEKCIAIi ADVERTISER: HONOIilTLU, DECEMBER 12, 1894. 110 WHITES OR HAWAI1S Phase of Labor Question Brought To Notice. Aalatir Work Cheaper aii et Mm-l.loymmt-llrliig i ' Fanillr. Mk. Kditor: We regret very much to know that labor for our Hawaiian ami white people ia closed out on every sitIe wItu tue Chinese and Japanese labor. We find on the building of our railway here Iare gangs of both Chinese and Japanese, about 130 already working on tuis road with a prospect of an increase fchortly to about COO or 40O of them, while there are only a comparatively small number of white and Hawaiian laborere. The fact U too well known that the former receives about 70 centa per day, while the latter re ceives from $1.50 to $2.00 per day. Oar city and country is not benefited in the least by any money which the Chinese and Japanese receive for their labor. We believe that the contractor should be interviewed by the Labor Commissioner or a committee ap pointed by the Government, to see if some arrangement could be made whereby our Hawaiian and white people would be employed entirely for the whole construction of the road. If we have not enough of the class of labor, there is plenty more of good reliable men in the "States," heads of families, that would only be too glad to come if they had the assurance of two years work; and long before that time would bring their families and settle on the rich land rf thfa rniintrv- and make comforta- IiTa hnmpfl fnr themselves in the near I Bamboo Screens and Mattinzs, Japanee Crockery and China Ware, Parasols and future, and bv so doinir would build up I Umbrellas; Lacquer Ware, Lanterns for decorations; Fancy Articles and Toys of our country with a class or desirable an uescnpuoiis, me very luiugs ior uouuay presents.

General William Booth, commander-in-chief of the Salvation Army, who is now in the United States, has been conducting his novel crasade against sin for twenty-nine years. He has done a great deal of good among the "submerged tenth." as he calls the poorest of England's people, and many criminals and unfortunates have been reclaimed. IWAKAMI SH0TJ5N, Hotel Street. (NEXT DOOR TO PECK'S COMMISSION ROOMS.) The following letters received from Mr. Jno. A. Scott, Manager Hilo Sugar Company, refer to the Avery Fertilizer Distributors and Stubble Diggers, for which the Hawaiian Hardware Company are sole agents. Mr. Scott first saw these implements at the Columbia Exhibition to Chicago, and was so favorably impressed with their appearance that he immediately ordered samples shipped in the Hilo Sugar Com pany. Mr. H. Deacon, Manager for Pepeekeo Sugar Company, secured one each of these implements from Mr. Scott and expressed his satisfaction with them in the letter published herewith: Pepeekeo, Aug. S, 1S94. J. A. Scott, Dear Sir: In reply to yours in relation to the "Avery" Stnbble Diggers and Fertilizer Distributors. I yonld say that I have been using the Diggers almost constantly since I received them, and am highly pleased with them. As the name signifies, I find them specially adapted to the work of loosening the soil about rat toon stools, and they may be used to great advantage either before or after the Fertilizer Distributors, thereby putting the rattoon fields in the very best condition for a rapid growth. They are a light draft machine, and I would recommend them to any plantation owner. The Fertilizer Distributor is a great labor saving machine, and I find mat l snail need one more to nil our requirements here. I remain, yours respectfully, (Signed) H. Dejlco, Manager for Pepeekeo Sugar Co. Wainaid. Hilo. Aucr. 9. 1894. Mr. E. R. Hexdrt, Honolulu. Dear Sir: In reply to your enquiries regrardinc the working1 of the a.very" atuDDie niggers and .Fertilizer Distributors. I would say that I have been using the Diggers for some months and have dug some eight hundred acres of stools with them, thoroughly loosening the soil in and about the roots, thus giving them an excellent oDDortunitv for many more shoots to come forth than usually do. And I find that there is a thicker stand of cane where it has been stubble dug. The machine works in fertil- with both population and wealt We all know that a laborer's nickel on the street car is just as valuable as a rich man's nickel ; his f5 tax is just as good to the government as the rich man's $o. Men cannot all be mer chants and bankers. There mu9t be tillers of the soli, and on the Islands we have thousands of acres of the best land in the world lying waste that should be feeding hundreds and thousands of good people, who would help to fill the government treasury, and help to make both city and coun try prosperous. During the two years' construction of this railway if there were say 300 men of the right class, who have families and some money to start with, and a show for tbe strongest of each family tohavtwo We wish to call your attention to our very complete stock of Japaneee Silk and s" a . y mi a- i a n 4. a. - t r 1 1 it .1 1 i r iv YrV "en ,an,u ajBISTi; if ?h i-Zr i1 e on rattoon stools without any further hand labor, mixing them thor- and Neckties for Ladies and Gents.

Tbee settlers would want all the necessaries of life, and schools, tools, implement., arte sian wells, and in fact everything that would increase the value of their hold ings. We all know that at this time there Is a struggle for supremacy on this very important ;uestion, and any thing and everything we cau do hon estly and fairly should be done at once for our cause and tbe Republic. White Men. m McGREW CASE IN COURT. Two Petitioners for Letters of Ad ministration. A hearing was held before Judge Whiting yesterday on the petitions for letters of administration of the estate of Henri McGrew. The pe titions were entered by C. W. Ash ford (attorney for Alphonsina Mc Grew) and Chas. Carter. The pro perty includes life insurance poli cies amounting to about $0750, and other effects, making the total about $9000. The question of whether the di vorce granted H. G. McGrew will be sustained by the Supreme Court is an important one in the distri bution of this property. In c.iL of an appeal from the ac tion of the Circuit Court the divorce law requires the grant of divorce to be sustained by the irupreine Court before it can be declared absolute. No guardian for the McGrew child has been appointed in this country under whose laws the disposition of the property will be made. The action of the Supreme Court will decide as to whether the child is the sole heir or Alphonsina Mc Grew obtains the third allowed the widow of H. G. McGrew. Kins: of TWble ""Waters AT $6 PER CASE.
