THK. PACIFIC COMMERCIAL A DVKKTISKK: HONOLULU,. JULY Y.. 1-00.
I :i : THiS PACIFIC ommerdal Advertiser W. N. ARMSTRONG EDITOR. WEDNESDAY : : : : JULY 20 PUNISH THK GUILTY. A number of Galician.s contract la borers, are now in jail under convic tion and sentence, for violating the provision of the Masters and Servants .Act. This Act is still in force in these Islands, the Xewlands' Resolution hav ing failed, for reasons which are not ftfven, to repeal it. The Resolution should have repealed this Act, for it is law which is intolerable to Anglo Saxon civilization, unless a sailor is involved, but in such case, it is per fectly tolerable, and in accordance with the glorious spirit of our institutions, as tho Supreme Court of the United States ixas recently decided. "While the American sailor and voter, a descendant of the Pilgrims, perhaps, 'is permitted to remain in his "loath-some cell," if he breaks his la bor contract, it is insisted that Gali cians are made of better stuff than the American mariner, and if they break their labor contracts, they must have tho Flag waved over them, and incur no penalty. TThero is a matter however which does not involve penal contracts, but does seriously Involve the entire plant ing interest. It is openly and definitely charged by persons in this town, that the Galicians have been treated with cruelty by the managers or agents of the plantation on which they worked. It ds said that one of them was "beaten -with an iron bar," that another "was unmercifully kicked," that "another was kicked in the abdomen," that "these, men were brutally treated and falsely imprisoned." These are of fensps against the common and stat utory law of the Territory, and if true, those guilty of these offenses should be punished promptly and severely. The Masters, and Servants Act furnishes no "defence whatever to such deeds. It is tho duty of the government to in vestigate the matter thoroughly, and institute prosecutions at once against tho offenders. If, on the other hand, there is no Iruth in these charges, the government is under the same obligation to prose cute for gross criminal libel those who nave made these charges. There was a time when the plant ing interest ignored charges of mal 4xeatment, because public sentiment was with them. That time has passed. The conduct of the planters is on trial In the United States, and will soon be discussed in Congress. Does the Planters' Association propose to let the matter go by default? Can that body afford to let it be said in Washington that the planters, when charged with brutally treating and falsely imprison ing their contract laborers, confessed by silence that it was true? Tho days are over when ia matter xf this kind is one of merely local im portance. The plantations are eager ly looking for laborers in order to maintain the great Jndustry. If it is conceded by the planters that such charges are true, even free laborers will ihesitate to engage on their plan tations. Are they willing to allow the impression to prevail abroad that they are a-brutal and cruel lot? The ' situation is critical, and de mands prompt measures. A thorough legal investigation should be made in the courts at once, and before Congress meets. If the Galicians have been as saulted, let the offenders be punished. If they have not been assaulted, let those who are striking at the sugar industry be punished., Neither Hackfeld & Co. or the Plan ters "Association can now afford to ignore these charges when men here aro pressing these charges -in Wash ington. ' " V TENEMENT HOUSES. The regeneration of man in the civ ilized lands is gradually taking place on very simple lines. The philan thropy of men like Peabody, Ogden Mills and Carnegie does not drift in tho direction of setting up the Amer ican flag on the housetops, but in put ting the human beings who are born .in' America within environments which make it possible to live decent lives and hold up the Flag. (Mr. Ernest Flagg, of New York, an . author, architect and reformer, is making another contribution to the new methods of caring for the wage earners, lie is showing the rich men how they may beat the camel in the struggle to get through "the eye of the needle." Having proved in the iMllls Hotel, which has 1660 rooms in it, that light, air, cleanliness, cheap ness and profit may go together, he is now building tenement houses for families which will vastly improve the condition of the tenants who receive scant wages. He claims that the plan of the square should be adopted in Tecting the tenement houses, and the an of erecting buildings on oblong 3ots 25x100 should be forbidden. By this plan there is an increase of 25 per cent in income from a given area, and at the same time, the tenants will re- Gould Not Sleep There are 373 apartments repudiation of his act by the Foreign , Oflice, is told by Router.

If the Constitution applies to these Islands, there can be no duty whatso ever charged upon the products of Ha waii imported into the United States. This will be conceded at once. But a number of articles of domestic pro duce carried from these Islands to San Francisco are refused entry without payment of duties. Duties are levied and paid on our pine apples, for in stance. Now if there is a serious question about the extension of the Constitution, let a protest be filed at once against the payment of such du ties, and a suit be brought in the Federal Courts. If this is done, we wil soon have some law on the sub- ject from the judges of a Federal Court. which has' 'Competent jurisdiction. If the court declares that no duty can be levied on Hawaiian products at the ports of the Mainland, then, of course. it follows that no duties can be levied in this port on American goods.
