Wholesale oiifl Retail Grocers A LABOR COUNCIL Planters Gather to Discuss Grave 5 MUST BE VARIETY OF WORKMEN Americans First Portuguese to Come Italians on the List. Coreans Considered. Business of the first importance wis considered at a meeting of the Ha waiian Planters' Association held here yesterday morning. Labor supply dis cussion occupied all of the time and was most earnest. Many plans were proposed and carefully viewed. Asso ciation members called in some out side counsel, including at least one member of the Government. W. O. Smith, Attorney General, was present. So was L. A. Thurston. Mr. Smith as sisted in organization of the planters years ago. He was for a long time sec retary of their society. Mr. Thurston has several times aided the planters in securing labor. The meeting was well attended. For several weeks the gath ering had been projected, but other matters intervened to cause postpone ments. After the adjournment of the meet ing calls were made upon half a dozen or more of the gentlemen known to have been present. All declined to say of the session further than that labor supply prospects had been talked about. It was stated that no definite or moving conclusions had been reached, but that there was to be a meeting again soon, when plans for action would in all likelihood be ap proved. The Advertiser learns that the plant ers consider the situation extremely serious. Several thousand laborers must be had within the next six to twelve months. It is pretty well agreed that it will be simply impos sible to bring in any more Chinese. It appears or is thought that there exists a plentiful supply beyond the sea of Japanese labor which may be drawrn upon. But the planters have con chicl ed that it will not be safe to have all Japanese in the fields and as laborers about the mills and sugar rooms. They know that this paper's account of the Japanese strike that was proposed for a few weeks ago and that was headed off only by interference of the repre sentative here oZ the Japanese Govern ment, was correct in every particular. It was the firm and fixed intention to have a strike that would simply par alyze plantation operation. As more is learned of the Japanese as organiz ers of labor guilds, more nervousness is felt on account of the labor condition here. In Japan the working people are most powerfully and thoroughly or ganized, from the "rickshaw" men up into the skilled trades. They believe in the efficacy of the strike and it will take a number of years to cure them of the faith. The planters want no strikes. To avoid difficulties with labor they want a variety of people in the fields. The leaven of Chinese is becoming less in comparison with the body of Japan ese. It may be i-emarked here, how ever, that many of the Chinese brought in under the three year permit are to remain at increased wage. The stip ulation was that they should return at expiration of service or sign over for plantation work only. Money for their passage home has been saved from their wages through a Government bureau. As so many new plantations have been started, wages have in creased and a number of the Chinese become free have engaged in service again almost indefinitely for time. The planters will watch the co-operative experiment at Ewa with farmers from California with the very keenest interest. If Manager Eowrie makes a success of his plan it will be extended to about every plantation in the group. An effort is to be made to secure more Portuguese. There has been some correspondence on the subject and guarantee assurances have been re ceived that quite a number of Portu guese can be had. They will cost more than any other labor, both in trans portation and pay, but are regarded as exceptionally desirable. A connec tion somewhat new, but regarded as certain and satisfactory, has been made for the purpose of securing the Portuguese. There will be a try to get Italian peasants. Mr. Benton, who has been Hawaiian consul at Rome, has been working for three years for the purpose of arranging for emigration from ag ricultural districts of Italy to Hawaii an plantations. Mr. Benton and oth ers who have investigated declare that a first-class desirable labor can be se cured. The people are in districts where such institutions as the mafia are unknown. They- are hard-working, honest farmers, who would be well sat isfied in Hawaii. Labor for Hawaiian cane fields may These p.-op:- would be exc ellent for the use of sugar estates. They are big and strong an I have boon found to be faithful an 1 in- telligent workers. Th e question o: permitting Coreans to land here under United States regulations has bfen raised, but it is not considered that they would be excluded as of a class with Chinese. The planters have been told that they can secure almost any desired quantity of labor from Corea. The first effort of the planters, it i.-i understood, will be to get labor from the Mainland and to add somewhat to the Portuguese population of work men. There is fullest appreciation or the wisdom of inducing an immigra tion that would develop into a farm ing section of high class citizenship. Labor famine stares the planter in the face and now that he sees the di lemma, there will not be great hesita tion in doing something that will hav result. The Philadelphia . Admiral Miller sends this written announcement to the Advertiser: "The Philadelphia will sail on Thursday afternoon. All bills against officers or men should be presented before 10 o'clock that morning. "Admiral Miller regrets exceedingly that owing to his departure at an earl ier date than was anticipated, he will be unable to call upon his many friends in Honolulu to say good-bye." JMethodist Fair Tonight. The fair and reception to be given by the ladies of the Methodist church this evening will be preceded by a tea in the afternoon, to begin at 5 o'clock.

BAD COFFEE HERE Iflspector Johnstone Reports on Use of Chicory. THERE IS MUCH ADULTERATION Tea Found to Be All Right Manu factured Coffee-Oleomargarine. School Children. President Smith, Dr. Emerson, Dr. Day, George YV. Smith, T. F. Lansing, D. L. Keiiipio and Secretary Wilcox were present at a meeting of the Board of Health held yesterday afternoon. The first thing was a discussion between President Smith and Dr. Emerson on the extent of the duties of Government physicians in examining school children. Dr. Emerson contended that this should be confined to children of pub lic schools only, while Mr. Smith con tended that the examination should, in the public interests, be made general. The latter course was adopted. For the two weeks just ended In spector Keiiipio reported TSJ'JG and 51,457 fish examined. The report of the Food Commission er on chicory and coffee substitutes was read. He stated that since the first of the year 60,500 pounds of chic ory had been imported. Of this mat ter he says: "An examination of the retail coffee trade of Honolulu, especially that car ried on by Chinamen, shows the bulk of the chicory mentioned above is used to adulterate coffees. Out of some sixty samples taken I have found the chicory adulterations ranging from 25 per cent to, in one case, 00 per cent. I have also found an imitation coffee, said to be manufactured by , which is composed chiefly of roast wheat, peas or beans. This coffee is, of course, a fraudulent article and should not be allowed exemption under section 3 of act 34. " "Thirty-three samples of tea from Chinatown have also been examined, but no adulteration thus far has been found, although the teas in most cases were of a very poor quality." . "Investigation shows that since Jan uary 1, 1898, 55, SOS pounds of oleo margarine have been imported." Norman Watkins applied for the po sition of milk inspector. Deferred for the present. Sheriff Andrews accepted the posi tion of manager of the ililo hospital. He asked for a elerk, but will be re quired to use his own office bookkeep er for clerical work in the hospital. Dr. Rokaku reported little change in the sanitary condition of Japan during August. On September 12 he reported the appearance of cholera in Tokio and other places, including four cases in Yokohama neighborhood. From Aug ust 17 to September 12 there were sev en cases in Tokio.
