White Mr. i-rowrte, in anoilici column
oxpresses the opinion that tho Portu
Kuo.st may do w 11 on the plantations,
he doos not explain why thfy steadily
get away from them. Nor dos he sot-m
to le aware of thc great changes in
character of the Portuguese people.
The majority of Portugue.se immi
grants could not rrad or writ.-. Within
1G years only: J,.0'J children of those,
immigrants have been born h?re, have
had fairly rood food, the best of cli
mate, and we, the dominant race, have
given them the same education which
makes children in America desire and
demand much better environment?
than their parents have. If we px
peotel to keep these children, as a
class, on the plantations, we should
have kept them in ignorance, and
want. We have made them ambitious.
The dangerous class in India toda-' is
that of the Indians educate! under
British, rule. As the young .Portuguese
mature, they naturally refuse the plan
tation life, because it is, they say, hope
less. They can purchase no land. On
the majority of the plantations they
are forced to associate more or less
with the .Asiatics. They are subject to
lunas. They struggle for better condi
tions. If these are refused them, they
become dissatisfied citizens. As voters
they will side against those whom they
believe oppress them, even if they do
It is this rapidly increasing number
of young Portuguese that must be pro-
Tided for in some way, if they are to
become and remain good citizens. No
doubt a reconstruction of the planta
tion system might improve matters, but
the needs of the plantations, as. now
conducted, will keep ithe Asiatics in
keen competition with them.
It is a hardship that we should edit
cate these children, teach them to have
"wants," and then bring them in con
tact with ithe cheapest Asiatic labor we
can obtaLi. We are not criticising the
inen who carry on the sugar industry.
Hut we state simply a condition.
Several of the intelligent young Por
tuguese tell us that they cannot buy
land on this Island, excepting at ex
horbitant prices. There are only 43S
Portuguese own; :s of real estate 'in the
Islands, out of the tr.,191 Portuguese in
habitants. Events will make these
young people a dangerous class in time,
unless some sort of statesmanship
shows them a way of becoming con
tented. To do this, is not a missionary
affair, but a matter of self-preservation
to even the sugar industry.
We are educating these young people
to become, under certain circumstances
a dangerous class, or under other cir
cumstances to become a nvst desirable
class. But it looks as if they were al
ready educated beyond the plantations,
as now conducted.

The publication will be essentially a

years' experience in. the preparation of
Directory matter, here and abroad, will
assist in the compilation and will call
on the various business houses for the
purpose of arranging as to advertising

PERSONAL A!ifD PECULIAR.
The strained relations existing be
tween the two branches of the Legis
lature no longer e.visi.
The House passed a bill and sent it
up with a card of introduction to the
Senate. The Senate, being confused,
or careless, or irritable from having
been up with the baby all night, tossed
the card back and refused ordinary
parliamentary etiquette to the bill,
leaving it to cool its heels on the door
step. The House, being a body of
dignified men, and lusty with rich leg
islative blood, naturally resented the
gross indignity as it called it. For sev
eral days there appeared to be immi
nent, danger of an "unpleasantness."
Our own suggestion that each body
form itself into a football team, and
try the Wsue on the Makiki grounds,
was not kindly received. The rumor
that the members of these two enlight
ened bodies sought personal encounters
is entirely untrue. Both have conduct

riety outwardly, especially the House,

A California Referee Passes an
Opinion On Them.
A gentleman, who has been prcrni
nentl; identified with wheel racing,
both in this city and on the Coast, of
his own volition submitted to Root M.
Waleh, of California, statements of the
mo-., notorious controversies ant
ing during the list of racing at Cj!o
mere. The cases are well known to all
interested ia the sport here. 3.1 r. Wab.L
was sent along with a plain account of
the facts a copy of the rules that gov
erned racing at Cyclomere. In each in
stance he endorsed the verdict of the
referee. So far as the first affair was
concerned (Terrii, et al) the referee
promptly offered to forfeit $100 if his
decision would net be upheld by the
best authorities in the United States.
Terrill would not listen to any such
proposition, knowing well that he was
wrong. The second case was a trifle
more complicated, but Walch says the
referee va3 right. Mr. Walch has for
five years been chairman of the racing
board and referee in California. He has
presided and rendered final judgment
at hundreds of meets and still holds his
position. He i3 not a salaried man in

with the machine, and in business a
