A.TIt EDITOR: Allow me to correc
a. inisieauing- sracemenL in one or v cur-
editorials of the 22nd inst., under the
heading: "Driving good men awav
m which you state that Portugue.se
with large families are not considered
desiraoie on tne plantations. You also
state as a iaci tnat. i'ortugucse are
offered $13.50 a month for their labor
to support a wife and family and that
they are denied even a smai parcel cf
land on which to grow home supplies."
In reply, I assert that you are either
dreadfully ignorant of the conditions
wmcn prevail on tne plantations, or
that you are wilfully prevaricating, for
reasons known to yourself; but I think
fairly well understood by a large num
bers of your readers.
The true condition existing on the
plantations regarding Poituguese 'abor,
is quite the opposite to your assertions.
The demand for good men on the plan
tations is always greater than the sup
ply and their labor always commands
the highest wages; my books will show
that Portuguese are paid from $17 to
$20 per month for the same labor done
by Japanese and Chinese. The latter
receiving from $l2.o0 to $lb.00 per
month. Even Portuguese minors earn
ing frcm $14.00 up, according to their
industry and ability, and their parents
are -supplied with ample land for
gardening purposes.
The foregoing conditions prevail in
my district and are somewhat different
from what you assert to be the regular
plantation wages "of $13.50 a month"
which you inform the public is the
average plantation rate.
Here again you mislead the public
regarding the rate of wages paid on the
plantations, for though contract wages
may be nominally $12.50 a month, ycu
fail to make mention of this fact, that
the plantations have to pay the labor
er s passage to tne country and to his
destination, besides all incidental ex
penses, such as quarantine dues, hos
pital fees, doctor's bills, taxes, etc.
Making the actua cost per month
$14.50, besides the risk of desertion,
which is the sugar planters' loss; but
the .coffee planters' gain. As the coffee
planter prefers Asiatic for the reason
that he will worfe cheaper than the
Portuguese. Therefore in an indirect
way, and to his own loss, the sugar
planter is really supplying the coffee
planter with the necessary labor. All
interested in a sufficient labor supply,
please bear this fact in mind, that the
sugar planter not only pays heavily for
his own labor supply, but incidentally
supplies the coffee planter as well.
If good men are going away (Mr.
Editor, it must be on account of the
natural law of trying to better their
condition. And they must -have been
able to save some money too from
the starvation wages you try to make
peopile- believe is paid them. At the
same time allow me to intorm you,
that good men are constantly return
ing, even trom that land or plenty ana
where good wages are said to be paid.
These men had money to go away with,
but they have none with which, to
return.
I have assisted several to return, and
more are coming, it you LMr. Editor or
others who pose as the champions of
the poor man's cause were to be told
by these returning 'unfortunates of the
harsh treatment and abuse they have
been subjected to, by their employers
of the golden west, and of their de
light to return, to labor in peace cn
the obnoxious penal settlements of
these islands, and by the side of the
brown men who you say are driving
them away. I say, the above facts may
astonish you; :but they are only too
true.
What think you Mr. Editor, of the
German sugar beet growers' move, in
introducing Chinese into Germany, to
labor, in order to cheapen the cost of
their sugar product? A trui'.y ominous
sign: Let absolute facts and the trutn
prevail at whatever cost.
Ycurs respectfully,
SMALL PLANTER.

-Miss A. Pitt lives at Cocking, one of
the prettiest little villages in Sussex.
An ardent lover of nature, she has for
some years past been denied the plea
sure of rambling among the hills, her
heart b-;ing tco weak to stand the
strain of even a moderate gradient.
oue e.uameu tne cause 01 all this to a
reporter of the MiJhursL Times, as fol
lows:
1 was weak, and hardly able to
walk; if I tried to go uphill at all I
had no .strength to lift my legs, and
when I went to chapel on Sundays I
had frequently to stop on the way on
account of the palpitation of my heart.
t or some time I was under a doctor,
ana thinking that sea air would do
me good, I went for a change to Bog-
nor, but the only effect was ;o mako
me worse than before. I had suffered
in tnis way for about three or four
years, when about four months ago I
read in various papers some of the ex
periences of people who had tried Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills in cases of heart
disease, and noticing that their symp
toms were in some insoanees similar
to mine, I thought there would ba
no harm in trying the pills, so wrote
for a box. I did not notice much bene
fit after taking this first box of pill;
but I determined not to give in, and
wrote for another. This had a wonder
ful effect, and I felt much better be
fore I had taken the whole of its con
tents. A third box I bought, and that
restored me to perfect health, but,
thinking it better not to leave off too
soon, l bought another box, though I
could have done without it, feeling so
well. Now I can say that from Dr.
Williams' Pills I have received
more benent than from any other
medicine, and in my pursuit of health
have tried many remedies.
"To show how changed I am sin?;e I
first took Dr. Williams' Pink Tills, I
may state last Thursday I went up Bow
Hill (South Downs), one of the highest
hills in Sussex, without any trouble at
all. This I consider a remarkable
climb, as four months ago it would
have been absolutely impossible for
me to do it. Any violent exercise or
quick work used to tell on my heart
at once, and I had to stop."
The .experience of years has proved
that there is absolutely no disease due
to a vitiated condition of the blood or
shattered nerves, that Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills will not promptly cure, and
those, who are suffering from, such
troubles would avoid much misery and
save money by promptly resorting to
this treatment. Get the genuine Pink
Pills every time and do not "be per
suaded to take an imitation or some
other remedy from a dealer, who for
the sake of the etxtra profit to himself,
may say is "just as good." Dr. Wil
liams' Pink Pills cure when other
medicines fail.
Sold by all dealers in medicine.
