THE CHLNAMAh'S LAMENT j FROM QUARANTINE ISLE. Give par, Oh, ye Heavens, To my cry from this desolate Isle. On the shore of the mainland Stands my wife and babies thre They call to me in their-hunger, But I am helpless to aid. short year ago my home was at Ewa. t In the midst of my small rice plant. My mother called me from far Cathay, To return to her for a last embrace. To which end I a Return Perm:: ob tained From the country in which my home Has so kng been maintained. And to whocie coffers in annual tax I have so freely contributed. Taxes on land bv me reclaimed from Innocuous disu etude. Lo; on my return to the land of my j adoption, A stranger stands at tlie gate And to me denies admission. I am told that since my departure An event called "Annexation" has oc curred, And that from landing I am prohibited. In vain I show my Permit to Return, I am of the "laboring" class they say. In vain I plead my pecuniary distress.; In vain I show tho pleading hands t Of wife and children three, Who stand on the strand of that beau tiful land And wave their -n-ands to me. Oh, God. can this be law? Is this the teachings of that Christ- Who died that all jnay live? Sy child each n:'ght brought home From a Christian school to con And learn, his little leissons. Amongst these werd -many noble and worthy. Slowly to me it was beginning to dawn That my peoplo were still in darkness. Here was the light I .had yearned for. Of these I recall a lesfcn to which was given A. noble name, "The Golden Rule." "Do -unto others as yo would That they do unto you." Of the depth of the meaning of this I long studied, and to me it appeared That if all men followed this mandate Of armies there would be no need, Prison doors would all fly open. Prosperity would sliine in every home. Of other lessons; he brought many, "Love one another," "Love your ene mies," "Do good to them that hate you." To him who restrained me of liberty I told these lesson. Quickly he answered, "that is a theory, This is a condition; you to the laboring Class belong and to be admitted you cannot." "The laborer is worthy of his hire." Labor is honorable. "If ye will not work Neither shall ye eat." Many such lessons to him I quoted. His only reply, "It is the LAW." So I must fain hie mo hence To my own land where I am now a stranger. I must sell in haete by a proxy Tho little I have, acquired. Abandon the fruits of my hard toil, Together with my :hopes of educating My little ones in a land to which By invitation I had come. This is THE LAV, that great cloud Which stands between me and my hopes. How can such things be? My ree-ling brain saya it cannot be. It could never have been the intent Of the wise who make the laws Of that great and noble land To crusli ono so impotent as I. TRUTHFUL JAMES." HER OWN BUILDER. Japan Proposes to Be Independent of Other Nations. Ever progressive Japan is now considering a scheme for making the armament of her fleet no longer de pendent on foreign dockyards and ar senals as it is now. The new propo sition is that of inviting a foreign firm, preferably from the United States, to locate in Japan and give a big subsidy. Thus Japan would de rive the hen en t of capital and experi ence and at the same time make her no longer wholly dpendent on foreign ers. The Jiji, a prominent vernacular pa per, says: "In tho haste, for recovering and im proving our naval resources after the late war, our Government liad barely time to devise any permanent design for the building at home of all war ships that the needs of our navy rend ered moro and more urgent. There fore all orders were given to foreign firms. It is not yet too late to offer some firm a percentage subsidy on big capital to operate works for building naval and merchant vessels. This sub sidy need not bo continued after the profits reached five per cent. This question should receive more prompt attention than tho Government own ership of railroads." NOTICE TO SHIPMASTERS. U. S. Branch Hydrographic Office, San Francisco, Cal.
